    Don't know where you live Basteri but here in the States B and BW's Coconut Lime Verbena http://www.bathandbodyworks.com/fami...erbena(3356166) is a winner for me.

    J Lo Deseo isn't exactly similar, but has coconut and a holiday, beachy vibe. Very nicely done and cheap as chips by comparison too.

    hmmm.... the Coconut Lime Verbana sounds nice!!! And with a nice price to match too.

    Too bad Bath & Body Works products are not available here.

    Weeeeeell, do bear in mind that our Basenotes swaps can be international.
    I see you've got a swap list up, so maybe the B&BW Coconut LIme Verbena is one to add to your wanted list.

    I had a monstrous lemming for Virgin Island Water for a long time and kept trying to find an alternative, but failed. (Though layering a nice citrus base with a bit of Yves Rocher's Coconut edt was pretty good). In the end, my hubby bought it me for my birthday. I don't regret it.

    Satellite Ipanema? On me it's a softer, less coconutty, cheaper and ultimately more well done frag than VIW (which I also like).

    Notes according to Luckyscent are: ylang, orange, grapefruit, freesia, sandalwood, coco, white flowers, tonka bean, vanilla, sea accord, patchouli

    Since all I get from it is Coconut, Harajuku Lovers "G" is a particularly tenacious and long lasting coconut fragrance, for the price. It smells very much like Coconut.

    (I cannot really bear Coconut because it reminds me of Malibu, which in turn reminds me of a particularly awful hangover!)
