    When I first walked into Aulani, I could smell it. Don’t know what it was. Like a combination of sunscreen and flowers???? Whatever it was , it smelled distinctly Hawaiian and distinctly Aulani. Even when the doors would open near the pool area, you could smell it coming out.

    Anyone know what it is? Or love it as much as I did? It’s as addictive as that smell in Pirates of The Caribbean.

    Are you sure it wasn't the leis they handed out to new arrivals? Those flowers are pretty fragrant.

    The smell I associate with Aulani is the smell of the spa, which permeates to some degree much of resort

    I am not sure about the smell at Aulani specifically but I know that one of the things I LOVE about Hawaii are all the lovely fragrant smells of the flowers mingled with the freshness of the tradewinds and ocean air.

    I did notice at Aulani that there is an area of plumeria trees over by the lazy river towel hut that is especially fragrant.

    Yes! I bought the lotion because it smelled so great!

    Can you only buy it in the spa, or is it also in the gift shop?

    Don't know the answer, but I do know you can go to the shop of the spa if you don't have an appointment (we went back to get those amazing robes)

    I did not see it in the gift shop, but as PP mentions, you can just enter the spa and purchase it without an appointment. It's available for sale right at the reception desk of the spa. One day while we were there, the spa set up a table near the lobby to advertise their services and merchandise, and they had the lotions and other body products available for sale right at the table as well.

    My family and I have been talking about the smell of Aulani ever since our vacation!! I'm guessing it's a pumped-in smell, but whenever we would enter the Waianae Tower from the pool area, you could very strongly smell this wonderful... ultra-clean smell... I really want it in my home!

    One of the perks of being in Waianae tower was coming down to the pool and grounds through the door near the spa and smell that lovely scent every day.
