NOT a clone to Virgin Island Water

Smells like a margarita mixed with Dawn dishwashing soap.

2/5
04th December, 2019
I guess I'll address a few things regarding SSSB by Tommy Bahama.

First, this isn't a typical aquatic. It's not loaded with dihydromyrcenol and it doesn't come across as bright or shrill as many aquatics do. This basically smells like you've spilled a margarita on yourself. The bright lime and salt notes are good at keeping the boozy tequila accord, musk, and vanilla from making this anywhere near having any of the thick or sometimes cloying qualities that those notes can create. This is a very fresh fragrance that absolutely evokes being in the islands or near the ocean.

Second, it does not smell like Virgin Island Water (2007) by Creed. They smell like they could be in the same family, but they don't smell the same (I own and wear both, so I am very familiar with them). As I said earlier, SSSB smells like you spilled a margarita on yourself; VIW smells like you spilled a mojito on yourself after applying Banana Boat suntan lotion. They are both great summer scents, and they both have the same "vibe," but they are not similar, otherwise.

Which brings us to the most important point in this whole diatribe...

SSSB can be found for around $20 for a 100ml bottle at basically any TJ Maxx, Marshalls or Ross, and it's been that way for years. As far as a bang-for-the-buck scent, I have said before and will continue to say that SSSB (and St. Kitts (2015) --also just easy to find at the same stores for the same price--) is one of the best value fragrances out there. It's a ridiculously good warm weather fragrance, and absolutely worth sampling. I'd even go so far as to call it a blind buy if the notes that it contains sound good to you.

100% thumbs up for St Barts!

Found a 100ml bottle for $20 at Nordstrom Rack and bought it blind based on reviews.

For the price this is pretty much no brainer for summer. It smells like a classic margarita with the lime and salt notes. A couple hours in the notes are pretty much the same on my skin but just toned down and a skin scent within 4 hours.

This stuff makes me want to drink in the sun with minimal clothing.

So I'm gonna burst your bubble right away with if you think this is a clone or copy of Creed Virgin Island Water(VIW). It isn't. However that doesn't mean it isnt any good. it actually is pretty dang nice. I bought this hoping it would smell just like VIW which is a scent I wear a ton in the hot humid parts if the summer. The only problem with VIW is longevity. I tend to have to reapply it which uses up a ton of juice and it isnt exactly cheap. So I was looking to find a suitable "clone". Did research and saw a few Alexandria that were in the 60 dollar range and just couldn't sink 60 bucks into a clone. Then I saw st barts. Which most reviews claimed was a dead ringer for viw I figured hey I'll give it a shot if the price is right most reviewers said you can usually get them at marshalls sometimes for dirt cheap. So I went to marshals and sure enough it was there. 19.99 for a 3.3 oz. Can't beat that with a stick not even if the performance sucks. Well upon first spray it had a "kinda" viw thing going on. But that dies pretty quick and begins to turn into it's own thing. This isnt a bad thing because what it turns into is a fresh citrus mainly lime scent with underkeys of aquatic accord and a hint of booze. Dont be scared by these aquatic accords because this certainly isnt headache inducing aquatic. Overall it's a very nice ridiculously cheap frag. But my search for a viw comparable frag continues. But in the meantime I'll have no problem enjoying st barts. Even if the performance is pretty poor. It's so cheap spray away grasshopper.

I bought this as part of a mini three-bottle set which included Tommy Bahama, Set Sail Martinique, and this one.

Tremendously made aquatic, with such a delighful dose of lime, tequila, and a mix of green, sea salty, and other exotic notes. The result is a dreamy experience that is so authentically marine, evoking sensations of seaside earthy freshness that honors the French Caribbean island.

Just do a Google pics word search for "St. Barts", and you see what this Tommy Bahama scent has set out to represent in bottle form: St. Barts is a blue, gorgeous island that conjures up a glamorous lifestyle of beach clubs, catamarans, and flowing caftans. The scent is in a blue bottle that so resembles the crisp waters there, and the fragrance itself a remarkable painter of such a beautiful, relaxing destination.

Bravo many times over, Tommy Bahama, for creating this and the other bottled trips to exotic places!
