Has anyone tried this, or know where to purchase?
Is this available anywhere online or in the USA?
Amen pure wood
Is there a strong coconut presence, or is it blended into the mix where you can barely detect it?
The 2014 batch of Creed Virgin Island Water is the best batch of VIW in terms of the intensity of the coconut note since Creed's first release of VIW way back in 2007.
Some batches of VIW have...
The new 2014 batch of Creed Virgin Island Water, which just came out this summer at the Creed Boutique on Madison Avenue in NYC, is the best batch I've had of Virgin Island Water so far.
Does this new scent have a similar coconut note to Creed Virgin Island Water?
Any ideas on how this new scent performs? There are very limited reviews out there, and it's so frustrating when you're deciding whether-or-no to plunk down several hundred dollars blind buying a...
Most excellent. I'm just repeating what I was told when calling the Creed Boutique in NYC for the last few months.
Can you smell the coconut in this? Does it lean fem, or is it really unisex? Thanks!
The 2014 batches of any Creed just started coming out in June.
...and Aventus are now available with Lewis at the Creed Boutique in NYC.
"Thank you for your kind message. You are very well informed . We will be launching the 24 Old Bond Street Triple Extract in September in all countries. It will be orderable from Barneys.com and...
Anyone have the slightest clue where to purchase any of these new fragrances? I've been searching for over a month now. I can't even find it on eBay. Has anyone tried any of these new scents?
Two more months, two days and 19 hours before we can order from Mugler USA.
Two more months until we can order from Mugler USA.
Is that how it works for international refused delivery (such as for England)?
I'm not even sure which delivery service they used because they never sent me a tracking number. I always upload...
Anyone know where to purchase this in the USA or online? Any reviews?
An international eBay Seller has the smaller 50ml bottle available on ebay, but I'm not making the same mistake twice of...
You know, I ordered it on April 27th and still haven't received it yet. Even Hednic received his before me! lol
Perhaps I should spend the $52 to send it back and return it to the eBay Seller in...
I can see how it may appear that way; however, I only own one fragrance in my collection - Creed Virgin Island Water.
I have Givenchy Bois Martial and Kenzo Homme Night on the way, and hopefully...
Yes, I'm referring to the 2003 release of Gucci pour Homme in the amber/orange.
There use to be a bunch at the duty-free that crosses the bridge from the USA into Canada.
It's running well over $230 on eBay for a 3.4 oz. bottle.
I hope it makes it to Saks 5th Ave.
Of course, just my luck, if I would have only just waited 24-hours more there is already another Seller on eBay selling the exact same thing for $300 USD...
It retails for $240 USD and I just "blind" bought it on eBay from a seller in England for a total of $525 USD.
That's almost a $300 USD premium.
I hope I like it.
According to Givenchy's Facebook page, in addition to Harrods in England, the 7 new fragrances of the L'ATELIER de GIVENCHY collection will also be available at Sephora des Champs ╔lysÚes in Paris,...
I placed an order for the new coconut scent called "Kenzo pour Homme Night' at StrawberryNet, since it's one of the only places delivering to the USA at reasonable prices. I've ordered from them...
.....man I wish I knew some friends or family in England who could pick it up at Harrods and mail it to me in the USA
Does "world wide exclusive" mean it will permanently only be sold at Harrods,...
My two must sample are Creed Cedre Blanc and Geranium Vetiver:
green Granny Smith apple, bergamot, lemon
geranium, cinnamon, rose
patchouli, cedar, musk, amber
I was at the Creed Boutique in NYC and was informed that the 6 new Creed scents will be available in June. If my memory is correct, there are 4 unisex scents, one masculine, and one feminine. I could...
My current Top 4 coconut scents as of April 21, 2014:
1. Creed - "Virgin Island Water"
(I wish Creed would come out with a Creed Coconut Millesime).
**I will be trying the following 3...
I bought 10 Roam hoping it would be a coconut winner; however, I couldn't smell a smidgen of any coconut in this. But then again, I also can't smell any coconut in Paul Smith's "London" either.
I want to try Fruits & Passion - "Coconut" and also there new "Green Citrus coconut" (Citron Vert Coco).
Plus the new Gandini 1896 - "Blue Musk" (Muschio Blu) looks interesting.....but there are...
As a coconut lover I'm really intrigued by this new release. Has anyone tried this? Is the coconut better than Creed Virgin Island Water? Is it available online or in the USA?
It's available at...
Luckyscent officially removed Domenico Caraceni 1913 from the Luckyscent website. All the fragrance websites in Italy said they have been "sold out" for years. Oh well...
Fragonard - "reve indien"
The bottle tells you everything you need to know regarding whether-or-not it's unisex.
A funny story, I use to call AMAZON regarding a very expensive watch I was interested in because their seller on Amazon had a 10% restocking fee I wanted to avoid in case I had to return the watch. ...
As with others...I Agree 100%
And with all due respect, the exact same thing can be said in the opposite. One can easily make the argument that small business owners also feel ENTITLED to turn as large a profit as humanly...
Can you guys tell us why you prefer Central Park over Gramercy?
After buying Lyric Man I worry a lot about "those things." LOL
It sounds fantastic, but I think I should sample before making an expensive blind buy.
Any thoughts on this new 2014 Eternity flanker? I can't find any reviews on Basenotes.
It sounds delicious...
Haha...my thoughts exactly. It reminded me of of soapy Grandma rose scent. You're not the first one to notice that in the reviews. As someone said, iI think it was created for a different demo than...
I just placed an order for two bottles at MACY'S. I hope the coconut will be more prominent than that in Creed Virgin Island Water... which shouldn't be too hard to do.
Is this along the lines of Mugler Cologne?
Is is more masculine or feminine along the unisex spectrum...
I'm surprised it has such little following after having been out for so long.
Anyone try this new rose scent for 2014? It says it's for "women" on Fragrantica; however, there are no reviews posted on Basenotes or Luckyscent.
I am glad it doesn't have Vetiver, which is a...
It's also available at MACYS online for $52.00
I read those reviews too and made the mistake of blind buying a full bottle last year. It's amazing how some people claim in the reviews that they smell "coconut, coconut, coconut" and I can't smell...
Tahitian Waters has a stronger coconut?
I actually love the coconut in "Apotheke:M Coconut Jasmine" sold at Target stores, despite it being so affordable.
Today at Neiman Marcus the sales woman...
I'm always on the hunt for the next high quality, coconut-based, sweet, unisex/masculine fragrance that doesn't smell like Bath & Body Works product.
Which has the more prominent coconut base out...
I read a few reviews that claim Joop Wild smells like Malibu rum. Is there a distinct coconut note in it, and can a middle-age man wear this "gourmand-type" fragrance without feeling awkward?
You're comparing Aqua Vitae to Glade air freshener? lol
I was thinking of blind buying this based on the reviews, but I just purchased a sample from Luckyscent which sould arrive this week.
Does this smell "dated" or "mature"?
Would it be suitable for a young twenty-something to wear?
There are no reviews in the basenotes directory, as it's not listed.
Virgin Island Water by Creed
Tumultu by Les Liquides Imaginaires
Tahitian Waters by English Laundry
Please tell us the batch number if you get a chance!

Anyone try this new fragrance?
The large bottle is $245 on Luckyscent, which is expensive, but still almost half the price of most Creed's.
I've been on eBay for over 15 years and it's a big red flag that almost all his feedback to the Buyers HE BOUGHT FROM is from people who are no longer registered users. And then we have your posting...
Thank you Hednic. Is the coconut similar to Virgin Island Water? Stronger? Weaker?
Anyone try this one yet?
...still nowhere to be found :(
I haven't been able to purchase a new bottle since 2011 on LuckyScent. It's been almost 3 years and I can't find a new bottle anywhere.
There is a guy on YouTube with an 8-minute video claiming it's totally different. Hmmm.....
Not to mention similar suggestions of fragrantica. Hmmmmm.... :)
I don't believe that is Domenico Caraceni 1913 for Men. I think that's Domenico Caraceni "Loren" which is a female fragrance by DC.
I could be wrong...but the original DC 1913 came in a different...
Anyone know where I can purchase these 2 fragrances online that deliver to the USA?
Has anyone ever successfully purchased something on Shoop.eu ??
How did the bottle change?
The seller claims "This is the old formula" with only four ingredients:
Alcohol. Aqua (Water). Parfum (Fragrance). Benzophenone-1.
Polo Double Black!!
Creed Virgin Island Water
CheckCosmetic claims fragrances are only good for 2-3 years.
Chances are the old "original" bottles of M7 on ebay are at least 10 years old.

Anyone try AZZARO TRAVELLING 75ml for Men from 2008?
Where can I purchase it online? Is it available in the USA?
I read it has a beautiful coconut note, similar to Creed's Virgin Island Water?...
Ah, I see. I must have forgotten to take my medication.
Did you even read the last two posts?
Exactly! There is a HUGE difference between the early 2007 2008 batches and the most recent batches. I use to be able to smell that amazing COCONUT note just by sniffing the nozzle.
There is a need for a company to make a high-quality coconut.
It would be nice if Creed came out with "Creed Coconut Millesime."
I have had similar horror stories from Beauty Encounter. Never again!
I guess so. I thought lot numbers were the Holy Grail in determining authenticity. It's kinda hard to do if different Creed share the exact same lot number.
I've purchased over 20 bottles (for myself, family, and friends) since VIW originally came out in 2007. I can assure you there are pronounced batch variations in Virgin Island Water.
I know it's a pain, but if you get a moment would you be so kind to post that batch number? :)
i got the same batch from Fragrancenet as a 2.5 oz tester. It is indeed horrible, with absolutely NO COCONUT!!
It's not all in my head, but thanks for the compliment :)
i certainly wouldnt...
Good description. Absolutely NOT wearable by men. The sales ladies at Nordstrom laughed when I told them some men consider this a "unisex" scent.
Anyone know where I can find a 2008 batch or earlier?
Anyone know where I can purchase the 2008 batch? It seems everything made after 2008 has almost zero coconut IMHO. I doubt the Creed Boutique has 2008 batches, and most sellers on ebay dont even...
For example, I don't think most guys can pull off Tom Ford's Black Orchid.
Is Serge Lutens Rahat Loukoum just as fem?
Anywhere to get samples instead of spending $300 bottle?
A1708B01 has been linked to VIW, SMW, GIT, and Fleurisomo. Does this batch A1708B01 still mean it was produced in 2008, or is that logic thrown out the window too?

This is so true! eBay is a very DANGEROUS place for SELLERS. All a buyer has to do is claim they think their bottle is FAKE, and ebay will refund them not only the price of the item ,but their...

15% restocking me is insane! How can Beautyencounter expect to compete with Fragrancenet.com?
I just had an absolutely horrible and borderline fraudulent experience with Beautyencounter. i had a...
It's the same juice/batch. The first letter just represents a different size bottle. I think "A" is the 4 oz bottle, and "C" is the 2.5 oz. bottle. But it's the exact same batch.
I think $193.50...
Thanks for everyone's help. Fragrancenet resolved the problem to my satisfaction, and everything is all good.
Apparently they have two different customer service departments. One for eBay and one...
I agree. I called them Friday and asked to speak to a manager. They refused. They said I could email email@example.com , but i think that was simply the address of the call center customer...
