    Default What fragrance best fits the description of tropical?

    Wondering what fragrance would you say best fits your description of a tropical scent. I'm thinking something sweet kindy with a coconutty type vibe going on. Some may think as a tropical fruit kinda scent. What do you guys suggest?

    Manoumalia by LesNez is the most overwhelmingly tropical scent I have smelled. It's lush, sweet, almost fermented. Good stuff!

    Notes of fragrea, vetiver, tiare, ylang ylang, amber, sandalwood

    Hesperides by Essenze di Mezzanotte. A lovely coconut and citrus fruits mix. Way better than Creed's Virgin Island Water in my opinion, as I own both.

    Craig, this sounds wonderful. How did you find this brand and scent, if I may ask?

    I love VIW. Bobby Brown's Beach is another idea; Aramis Beyond Paradise perhaps.

    Look at the Tommy Bahama line, yes, really. They're pretty cheap and good quality scents. I def get a tropical vibe from them.

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    Creed's Virgin Island Water, most definitely.

    Though a little heavy, I find the mango-coconut thing in Black Orchid very tropical-influenced.

    L'Artisan Premier Figuier and Cote d'Amour also feel tropical to me.

    +1 for both VIW & Manoumalia. l highly recommend lntense Tiare by Montale as well, if you don't mind something a little on the femme side. The sillage & longevity are fabulous & l often get compliments wearing it!

    Try Sipario by Hilde Soliani. It's got that fresh pina colada vibe going.

    Or Aloha Tiaré by Comptoir Sud Pacifique if you prefer something more floral.

    That I've sampled: Creed Virgin Island Water

    That's I suspect from what I've heard (and want to sample): Aramis Bermuda Tonic

    Noix de Coco by Yves Rocher is a cheap and very longlasting tropical scent which is to die for!

    Aventus.

    Nothing else comes to mind, than the countless cheapies; bath and body works, The body shop, Victoria Secret, and various home made stuff from etsy, or Lunableu, they're very good actually.

    Another vote for Virgin Island Water. Suprisingly longevity on me and I have trouble with a lot of Creeds in that department.
