Monoi de Tahiti is an Endless Summer


Nothing says Summer like the sweet fragrant Monoi Oil of Tahiti also known simply as “Fleur de Tahiti”. Monoi de Tahiti is a precious and exotic cosmetic oil manufactured in Polynesia following traditional methods. The oil is created by soaking and macerating 10 Tiare flowers from French Polynesia in one liter of refined coconut oil for a minimum of 10 days.

The authentic Monoi de Tahiti Oil carries an “Appellation of Origin” guarantee and is produced under very controlled manufacturing methods to ensure the highest quality oil. Thanks to its moisturizing proprieties, MONOI makes skin softer and naturally protects it from the harmful effects of the sun and the sea salt. It’s also the miracle product Polynesian women use to care for their legendary hair. 100% Monoi oil from Tahiti is available online.

 

Yves Rocher USA  has a  Bestselling fragrant line of Monoi de Tahiti  in luscious Monoi oil,  dry glitter oil, fragrance spray with the new Eau de Toilette called Wave of Summer or Vague d’ été in French as well as a complete line of body creams and scrubs, body wash, and hair care.

Monoi de Tahiti is a sensual fragrant oil and for me, it truly is Summer in a bottle all year long! Feel the caress of the sun on your skin, the enveloping warmth of summer, the sensation of hot sand mixed with the freshness of water beneath your feet.

So many summer memories revived by this sun-drenched fragrance that will have you dive into an endless summer.

Lily of the Valley is also an exquisite fragrance and widely used in luxury soaps, perfumes, body and hand lotions as well as candles. However, the essential oils of Lilly of the Valley are very difficult to extract and most French perfumes such as Diorissimo by Christian Dior have to resort to using a synthetic version.
