About this deal

At first I get pineapple, perhaps that's a combination of the apple blossom, berries and sugar, then more coconut and vanilla but there is enough spice in this to prevent it becoming sickly sweet. It's cheap and I love all things creamy coconut and vanilla: Bronze Goddess, Azuree Soleil, Gold Sugar, etc. You've smelled this type of scent before in an Ed Hardy or Katy Perry or Nicki Minaj fragrance before. Just a non descript pleasant easy reach sweet, creamy scent, perfect for summer and I imagine will be good too layer with. Projection is not crazy and am seeing how long it will last but regardless i'm glad I scooped this little gem up.

Fcuk Friction Pulse Perfume by French Connection, Fcuk Friction Pulse is a refreshing perfume designed for the modern, daring woman .UPDATE: Since I found that this perfume didn't work for me I gifted it to a friend of mine yesterday. Perfect perfume for summer days when u want a fruity , sweet, moderate coconut scent I use this in the heat in the day as my perfume and the sol de janiro 71 mist for my clothes and hair, they layer very well together. I get the feeling that FCUK Friction for Her was aiming for a tropical vibe, however the final result was a somewhat cloying fruity and musky coconut blend.

On my skin this opens with the honey suckle and apple blossom with the coconut lurking in the background definitely making its presence known, as the scent evolves the Coconut comes out in full force playing with the Vanilla and spun sugar with the apple blossom playing in the background and the cherry peeking through. that opens with a burst of sweet tropical coconut featuring something like pineapple (not listed) and transitions to a musky white floral coconut with caramel touches. It's reminiscent of a pineapple (they really want you to know FCUK is all about pineapple) but it's also slender, sturdy and portable. If you're looking for a sweet, creamy scent without any other accords, this one should fit the bill.The opening declared a suitable scent for a teenager - safe, nothing original, pleasant but a little bit too cheap smelling. VERY familiar, and I couldn't quite put my finger on it, but then it hit me: This smells (on me at least) almost exactly like coconut pineapple curry, which is strange because there is no coconut, pineapple, curry, tomatoes, peppers or rice listed, but there you go. It's such a beautiful milky coconut and vanilla scent that settles down to this absolutely stunning florally coconutty vanilla mixture. We will not share, sell or disclose your information to any third party for any reason without your consent, except as required by law. Think it would probably be more suited to a younger lady than me (I'm in my forties) as is very sweet, definitely a day time spray, not too in your face.

The kind of sweetness that comes from straight-up sugar, which is not my preference in food or perfume. That said, on first spray this is more like a Bourbon vanilla and eventually settles to a creamy fruity vanilla. It's sweet, but not overwhelmingly so, and I think this fragrance would be perfect for summer, but I believe it could also work in winter too. This is much lighter and user friendly and I don’t easily choke on it if you spray it more than twice.

Overall though, there’s just enough lotiony vanilla and coconut to make this pleasant when layered with another, less sweet, coconut body wash/lotion/perfume.

Other than that, it's not only supremely pretty and one of the only creamy fragrances that I can tolerate in summer, but it also brings back poignant memories of one of my life's most beautiful chapters ever. You could wear this year round, I keep a bottle in my bag because the bottle is indestructible and it layers over any coconut/vanilla scent pretty nicely.For the outgoing, young or young at heart who love sweets and playing outdoors under the warm summer sun. After wearing it a couple times I started smelling the vanilla and coconut more, and I do like this scent now. It is sweet and creamy but I also think it has a freshness to it from the florals which stops it from becoming too cloyingly sweet. True, it is a very subtle drydown, but we deal with some serious heat and humidity and I appreciate the light, breezy, yet still quite feminine qualities of Friction. I don't hate this though, its very clean and gentle, like soft clean pineapple scented skin but I don't really like it either.
