BPAL Madness!

Recommended Posts

Yessss, this is just the sort of scent I like. It's a touch foodie, a touch tropical, a touch aquatic. Just right. The salt keeps this from being too sweet, the coconut note is dry and sun-baked, and the almond milk is gently creamy. Throw is pretty potent, and longevity is 👍. This one's a winner in my book.

If you're curious how this compares to Obatala, as I was, know that it is similar. To me, it's the same coconut. Kamau is saltier and more restrained. The smell of warm skin after a beach trip. Tanning lotion, sun, salt. Obatala is much creamier and maybe a touch sweeter. Testing side by side, I can really smell the difference and how much creamier Obatala is. I think I prefer that kind of creaminess. Kamau, while lovely, is a bit simpler and a bit more commercial (I've had this scent in various commercially available lotions/oils). So I don't think I'll need an upgrade.

 

This would be a great "my skin but better" smell. It rewards closeness.

Creamy almond milk and beachy coconut. On me, the scent is an equal mix of both, with an extra, slightly spicy musk in the back, which I think is the skin musk part. On the soft side and low throw. As a coconut lover, I like it, but I'm not sure I love it.

Creamy and salty almond and coconut. This smells like salt-crusted suntan lotion. As if you had been at the beach all day covered in Hawaiian Tropic. Good throw and wear length.

Kamau Kogo starts off so salty on me that it could have been mistaken for an aquatic. The salty skin musk is the star of the show throughout wear, with the coconut husk being the second most prominent note. The almond milk is not a main player on me, but I think it, along with the coconut husk, helps to sweeten up the scent after a while.

 

I agree that this is one of those your-skin-but-better scents... which aren't really my thing, but if you want to smell like salty, coconut-y skin musk, Kamau Kogo is your girl!
