Elemis Frangipani Monoi Body Oil
I also experienced this product for the first time while on a cruise. It feels so great when you apply it warmed. Takes you back to the spa on the cruise.
I purchased a bottle of this a few years ago at a cruise ship spa. It is WONDERFUL. It does solidify between uses. Just place the bottle in a sink of warm water and it liquifies quickly. It softens skin immediately and the scent is beautiful. Yes, it is expensive, but it lasts a long time. A little goes a long way. I will definitely purchase another bottle when the first is gone. This Elemis product is a luxurious indulgence.
Actually, traditional monoi is made by infusing the Tiare flower (Tahitian Gardenia) in coconut oil. Tipani (Frangipani/Plumeria) and other flowers or fragrances would be added for scent variation. Depending on where you get it, a 4oz bottle of the traditional Tahitian monoi is maybe $6 to $10. So I think $50 is a bit too steep. But, I guess it's a nice bottle....and it comes from a prestigious brand....o_O
I purchased this during a SPA visit on a recent cruise, it is a great oil and smells good as well. I am glad to see it here, although I would do another cruise to get more of the Frangipani products.
