Hula by Roxy c1998

Hula by Roxy: launched in 1998. Roxy is a brand of women's surf and sportswear manufactured by Quicksilver since 1991.

Hula was created by Givaudan Roure. Hula was available as a liquid scent and a solid perfume. The perfume was contained in a long skinny glass vial, that could be used with a pink atomizer or as a dab on. The bottle was presented in a cylindrical case. The solid perfume was housed in a round tin. Or a gift set presented in an old school style metal lunchbox holding both the perfume and the solid perfume with an atomizer.

Fragrance Composition:

So what does it smell like? The press release describes the fragrance as" a "fresh, sporty bouquet for girls searching to attain Zen on the beach"."
  • Top notes: lemon, lime, papaya, sea breeze accord
  • Middle notes: gardenia, frangipani, jasmine sambac
  • Base notes: white musk, woodsy notes, driftwood accord, surf wax accord

It smells, she said, a little like a beach, a little woody (like an old wooden long board) and a little like the ocean breeze off California. ''Which is sort of citrusy,'' Ms. Lori Smith of Givaudan Roure added, ''and it's there because when I asked surfers what they thought about when they were waiting for the next wave, they described this smell.''

Fate of the Fragrance:

Unfortunately, this fragrance has been discontinued for many years.
