I like VIW. Fire Island is very impressive, but the suntan lotion thing is simply too realistic for me. I get more enjoyment from VIW. I think they're both respectable scents.
Which is better and why ?
Virgin Island Water
Much better quality IMO and smells better.
VIW because I own it..... Fire Island is too similar to suntan lotion.
Depends... Would you rather smell like Bain de Soleil Sunscreen or Malibu Coconut Rum?
I would have to say VIW, it's sliiiiiiightly more versatile to me. But both smell like a tropical vacation/beach. Eh, I like them both. Better is such a relative term.
I like both, but VIW. Coconut is a lovely note IMO.

I also like them but and I do agree with chris...the coconut note is awesome
VIW always brings a smile on my face because of the Malibu-esque notes. Fire Island is an easy second choice.
For me unfortunately the coconut note is completely ruined by too many air fresheners... at the same time, suntan lotion means strictly summer.
VIW - it smells better.
