Monoï oil[1] is an infused perfume-oil made from soaking the petals of Tahitian gardenias (best known as Tiaré flowers) in coconut oil. Monoï (pronounced mah-noy) is a Tahitian word meaning "scented oil" in the Tahitian. Monoï is widely used among French Polynesians as a skin and hair softener.

Authentic Tahitian monoi oil follows a strict manufacturing code that oversees the entire process from handpicking the tiare flowers to storage and shipping of the final product. This process has been validated and protected by an Appellation of Origin which was awarded to Monoi de Tahiti on 1 April 1992.
