Monoi de Tahiti is a precious and exotic cosmetic oil, manufactured in Polynesia, according to a French Government Decree, which explicitly describes the process by which this oil must be made. The oil is created by soaking/macerating 10 Tiare flowers, which must come from French Polynesia, per litre of refined coconut oil for a minimum of 10 days. Our authentic Monoi de Tahiti carries an Appellation of Origin guarantee and is produced under very controlled manufacturing methods to ensure the highest quality oil.

Monoi de Tahiti is an extraordinary oil for skin and hair care. It has been shown to penetrate and hydrate the skin rapidly and reduce trans-epidermal water loss. Use Monoi de Tahiti in creams, lotion, soap and experiment with it in all of your formulations.

Important Note: Our Monoi de Tahiti Oil possesses a light, natural aroma of coconut oil that has been imparted with a very delicate floral aroma of the Tiare flowers that have been macerated into the coconut oil.

Comments: Be aware that this has NO scent. The description is confusing. I don't understand how it could be infused with tiare flower and have no scent at all. Other than that, it's fine, but not what I need.

FNWL Response: Kathleen, our Monoi de Tahiti is authentic (without synthetic fragrance added) and the natural fragrance imparted by the tiare flowers is very light. It is not intended to add substantial fragrance to final formulations that incorporate it or be used as a substantial perfume. I asked our Customer Care Department to carefully reassess our Monoi de Tahiti, and they confirmed that our present inventory indeed does possess a delicate, light aroma. We're very sorry that our Monoi de Tahiti did not meet your specific needs. Our Customer Care Manager will be reaching out to you by telephone to further assist you.

Comments: I wish I could give your product a good rating, because your customer service is wonderful however, this Monoi de Tahiti is NOT up to the standards of what I am accustomed. In the three years I have been using Monoi both for my own personal use and for products I make and sell, it is the lovely scent from the tiare gardenia blossoms that have been macerated into the coconut oil that make monoi addictive. This product smells like coconut oil but is lacking the natural gardenia scent - monoi means scented oil, and this hasn't got it!!

FNWL Response: John, we clearly state that this particular Monoi de Tahiti is unscented both in the product title, headline and in the description. I'm going to boldface the info in the description as we do want customers to be sure to read and understand that this is unscented.
