I am not a huge mega fan of fruity scents but I do like them. I  have a few favorites. Sometimes in summer I want to smell like a pineapple or a piña colada. It’s fun and makes me feel like I am on vacation. There are many pineapple inspired scents on the market ranging in price and even formulas from oils, solids, to sprays. If I had to pick my top 2 that you can still buy it’s Crazylibellule & The Poppies Shanghaïjava Ananas Imperial and L’Artisan Parfumeur Ananas Fizz. Here are some more:

Budget Pineapple Scents: Crazylibellue & The Poppies Shanghaïjava Ananas Imperial is a nice fruity blend that is heavy on the pineapple. It retails for about $16 and the cute little Crazystick goes everywhere you go. Lucy B. Australian Jasmine Perfume Roll-On is heavy on jasmine but the pineapple ads a nice tropical touch making this a a nice fruity-floral fragrance. Plus, it is a deal at $24 and the spray is $48. I actually prefer the roller ball. Harajuku Lovers Lil’Angel is one of those tropical fruit and citrus florals. It’s pretty sweet but it does have pineapple. The smallest bottle goes for $25. Have I mentioned that I love this lines bottles? Demeter Fragrances Pineapple is a “pure” pineapple, sweet and juicy. The 1 oz. goes for $20. The line also has a pretty decent Piña Colada for the same price. My all time favorite pineapple scent was one by Yves Rocher. It was dirt cheap, long-wearing, and well, perfect. It isn’t available anymore and I’ve had to replace it with the Ananas Imperial solid.

More Expensive Pineapple Scents: If you are looking for a sweet, tropical, and creamy pineapple fragrance, give Comptoir Sud Pacifique Vanille Pineapple a try. It is a blend of pineapple, vanilla, and coconut milk. It goes for about $53 and smells good enough to eat. Sometimes in the summer I just crave L’Artisan Parfumeur Ananas Fizz. It is fruity, sweet, citrus pineapple blend. It’s a very playful scent. The 3.4 oz bottle goes for $135. Safi Parfum Oil is a long wearing tropical fruit and floral blend with pineapple, freesia, and lilies. I know it isn’t for everyone, lychee and pineapple can smell a bit “pissy” but I really like this one, .28 oz. of oil goes for $60 and the 1.7 EDP spray for $78. Momoberry Perfume Oil is a nice tropical floral and yes, Hello Kitty is on the bottle. It is a blend of pineapple, jasmine, and coconut. It was created by the genius that came up with Monyette Paris, it’s a great tropical scent. It goes for $45 for .33 oz. I seriously think I could drink Hilde Soliani Sipario. It’s a true piña colado fragrance of rum, coconut, and pineapple. It goes for $175 and I can buy a few piña coladas for that.

Other Great Pineapple Products: 100% Pure Juicy Pineapple bath product line is just what the name implies: juicy. Jacqua Piña Colada Hand Creme isn’t as good as the real thing but you can get away using this at work. It retails for $8. mark Juice Gems Lip Gloss comes in Juicy Pineapple. It is a lovely 24K gold shimmer with a great flavor. It’s a deal at $6. Alba Botanica Enzyme Pineapple skincare line smells nice and is great for skin feeling “dull” or “ashy”. Prices in the line are under $15. My friends with fine, oily hair, total opposite of me, rave about Lush I Love Juicy Shampoo. It’s fruity with pineapple. I wish I could use it.
