Kukui Oil has been used by Hawaiians for centuries to keep skin soft and smooth and the oil used by Connock London is sourced from a small factory on the Hawaiian island of Oahu. Amanda’s father was one of the first to export the oil from the Islands to the U.K. and from there she created the signature scent to reflect the soul and beauty of the Hawaiian Islands that is at the centre of the Connock London collection. This elegant floriental fragrance is built around the Gardenia flower and is complemented by a full bouquet of fresh flowers including Italian Bergamot, Moroccan Rose and White Jasmine. The scent is further enriched with Vetiver, White Amber, Vanilla Absolute and Tonka Bean.
