    Default Coconut fragrance???

    My girlfriend really enjoys the scent of coconut and I'm looking for a fragrance with a primary coconut note. Preferably fruity as well since she's not fond of floral. Possibly somthing that resembles a high quality tanning lotion? Although, not JUST coconut since something like that can be had at Bath and Body works.

    Virgin Island Water by Creed...that's a good one, not too much coconut, a touch of rum, a bit of citrus..very unisex.

    Yeah CSP coco extreme comes to mind. I don't wear mine anymore though, I don't like smelling like a pina colada. A lot of people like it though but my nose has gotten too sensitive to the sweetness.

    I generally dislike fragrances that make me think of something to eat.

    ... the only non-gourmand commercial coconut I know is Versace-Crystal Noir. The coconut is obvious-stronger coconut note id edp- (you know,based on the classic succes combo, tuberose+coconut ideea), yet it's not foody, and it's easy to wear, even with ellegant clothes maybe.

    P.S.-for more tuberose,and coconut is smaller dose, try Beyond Love by Killian. Divine tuberose+coconut.

    P.S.2- I now see it's for your girlfriend--- if you can get her a "Beyond Love", you'll totally impress her, as the presentation (gorgeous, luxurious box) and the scent (best niche tuberose-coconut) are incredible!!! There's no way she's not gonna like it. The price is very high though...

    If memory serves, the Harajuku Lovers "G" has a huge blast of coconut note. So much so that it reminded me of tanning lotion.

    I thought, "Why not just wear tanning lotion?"

    A cute little "Harajuku doll" flacon (based on the Japanese folk art "kokeshi" doll), but made for the teen set. This is not altogether a bad thing, as each person has his own taste.

    Remember that many fig prominent scents, have a definite coconut accord running through them. Try Philosykos by Diptyque (a green fig/coconut) and/or Premier Figuier by L' Artisan Parfumeur.

    I also highly recommend you try Virgin Island Water. It's my favorite coconut fragrance, although it's a pricey one.

    This one ^ is also gorgeous but as Mikeperez says it's pretty spendy...

    I 2nd his suggestion of l'Artisan Parfumeur Premier Figuier (the Extreme version is my fave) a gorgeous creamy fruity coconut.

    Bobbi Brown Beach is a lovely suntan lotion/coconut scent, as is Bond No9 Fire Island.

    Miami Glow (if you can still get it); smells like 1980s Hawaiian Tropic lotion.

    Serge Lutens Datura Noir is a syrupy, heady tuberose-coconut that has an opening like floral jam or wine gums; then settles to a sweet coconut scent.

    Also +1 for the EL Bronze Goddess.

    PdN Cococabana is a pretty coconut tuberose; also Hypnotic poison does have a coconut note in it, although I wouldn't consider it primarily a coconut frag.

    Yves Rocher's Malaysian Coconut???

    I quite like layering Yves Rocher's Malaysian Coconut over Sean John's I Am King to try and clone Creed's Virgin Island Water.

    Its gives me the coconut and sweet tropical fruit accords I like during summer.

    Check Carlos Santana, if you're on a budget. Pretty. I'm not sure if it'll work or if you'll find it too floral, but I think it's worth a look.

    Hesperides by Essenze di Mezzanotte. I prefer this to Creed's Virgin Island Water. It lasts longer, for me is far better in the drydown and it's far cheaper at around £70 for 100ml.

    Vittoria Apuana by Profumi del forte has coconot (but a lot of other notes and not exactly cheap)
    Lavera Vanilla coconut is great (and cheap, but try to get it in Europe)
    Stacked style has a coconut fragrance (como crema)
    I think Unforgivable woman by Sean John has coconut too.

    I also vote for Virgin Island Water, but wasn't there a Bath and Body Works dupe called Coconut and Lime? Try that if you're on a budget.
    I'll also agree on Bronze Goddess if it's the upscale tanning oil scent that you really want. with that, the coconut is in the topnotes and once it reaches the base it's more of a gentle woody musk - very easy to wear every day.

    I'd add a Fragonard fragrance to the mix: Miranda is seriously vanillic and coconutty. Edible but elegant. Very good stuff. And sexy as all hell, by the way.

    The CSP suggestions at the top of the thread are your best bets, if you want a distinctly coconut scent throughout. Not to get off topic, but you also really should give her a bottle of Coconut Skin Trip body lotion by Mountain Ocean. There is no more photorealistic coconut smell around, and it works well too. Would be great to layer under any coconut frag.

    Today I'm testing Paul Sebastian's Design for women. I had read that it was one of those drug store treasures that was underrated. I'm going into my 3rd hour with this and all I can smell is coconut, for me it is the sickening sweet coconut smell of the 60s-80s sun tan oil. I know some people love that "scent", I am not one of them. If anyone wants to relive that scent this is a very, very inexpensive way to do so. Thank goodness I only purchased the mini, I do like the simplicity of the bottle and the little red stopper is very art deco IMO. I wanted to love this but it is not giving me a migraine.
