    No, but if you do, knock yourself out.

    Not bad, if only the coconut note would not add any additional sweetness to this frag.

    I was thinking the same thing. VIW, however, has lime, rum and sugar cane which provide a perfect foil to the coconut.

    I think the addition of coconut to Issey would be discordant. It would clash with the yuzu and the waterlily.

    Lolita Lempicka au Masculin layers quite well, 2-3 sprays of Issey to 1 spray of Lolita Lempicka au Masculin. Discovered this by accident, after taking a shower then spraying on au Masculin while Issey was still lingering. But thats more anise / vanilla than coconut.

    You might like that kind of combination but I certainly won't. I stay away from most frags that have a prominent coconut note.

    You are right, IMO.

    The citrusy aquatic vibe would not take coconut well, in my opinion.

    No, don't think so.

    What might work is fig. However, you need to find a fig that doesn't smell like a coconut.
