    Philosykos fulfills my coconut needs, but then I like fig scents.

    Don't have a coconut fragrance not to my knowledge I see some are mentioning D&G The One...I get somethin else tropical rather than coconut tho.

    I have tested Lacoste L.12.12 Blanc / White

    Definitely a Coconut and tropical vibe actually this is a pretty pleasant fragrance. I don't own it and probably won't due to it's poor longevity and I feel it is over priced severely.

    VIW ofc. And fig based scents like Dior Dune Pour Homme.
    Also love the coconut note in Allure Homme.

    I can't believe no one has mentioned Turtle Vetiver Front. It has a really plush coconut note that is not syrupy or cloying--like raw coconut meat as opposed to suntan lotion. I enjoy this note in Santal 33, too.

    Ava Luxe has a perfume named Black Coconut. I've never tried it though, so I'm not sure if it's feminine, masculine, or unisex.

    Wearing it now and quite enjoying it. Longevity isn't very good, but the first hour or so is tremendous - such smoothly blended coconut, lime, rum, banana, aquatic, skin scent. So smooth that, although the pyramid reads like a tiki bar special, it goes far beyond smelling like a cocktail. Just beautiful, IMO, though I've come to expect that from L'Artisan.

    In the fig/coconut section, I enjoy Hermès Santal Massoïa the most.

    Susanne Lang - Vanilla Coconut

    listed as smelling very fem on luckyscent, but to me it smells no more feminine than any other coconut fragrance.

    Agree with your assessment. Another worthy coconut scent.

    I have a new found favorite coconut fragrance, it's called Coconut Vanilla by Island Bath & Body. I recently purchased it while I was in Hawaii. It's my SOTD. Longevity & sillage is pretty good, it's been about 11 hours and I can still smell it on me. Especially can't complain considering it's perfume strength and only cost me $18 for a 1.6 oz bottle. Their website says it's concentrated 25% fragrance. It can be found online for around $30 (price includes s/h).

    It opens with a strong burst of coconut and dries down to coconut & vanilla. Plus, I don't think anyone has really heard of this fragrance, at least not on Basenotes.

    Creed VIW is nice too, but I get more lime than I do coconut.

    Isn't the 1.6 oz. perfume bottle for women? They have a 3 oz cologne spray for $15.99

    i wonder if the cologne is for men and the perfume for women, or is it just a difference in strength?

    Not a fan of coconut. It's the main reason I don't care for VIW. Thankfully I've never gotten a coconut vibe from The One.
    I don't have a signature fragrance. My signature changes a little bit every day, why shouldn't my fragrance?

    I tried VIW yesterday for the first time and I'm already a big fan. Very similar to Marc Jacobs Man and also Bronze Goddess. All very nice 'spent the day on the beach' type scents.

    I just bought VIW for this summer, and I have to say, it's far better on skin than on paper. I never really gave it the testing that it deserved before buying it. On skin, it just keeps coming back, and the balance is nicer, deeper, and richer. On paper it smells a bit less like a perfume and more like a fragranced body product. But on skin it's definitely coming across as a high-end fragrance. Glad I bought it.

    I love VIW and I know it is often compared to Bath & Body Works Coconut Lime Verbena & Coconut Lime Breeze, but I also have another "cheapie", body spray that I love for coconut. It's sold at Walgreens in the U.S. and is called "Coconut Coast" by Details Bath and Body. It's a sweet vanilla based coconut scent comparable to several from BBW, but I honestly think this one is much nicer. So if you are looking for a cheap coconut/vanilla ice cream type vibe, give this one a shot for $5.

    I'm generally not a fan of this note. In fact, I'd prefer VC&A Tsar without it.

    I agree with you that Creed Virgin Island Water is 90 % LIME with very little (faint) coconut; however, both the Perfume and Cologne versions of Island Bath & Body coconut are marketed solely towards women (when I found them on Amazon and ebay).

    Luckyscent marketed Profumum Dolce Acqua as "leaning" slightly feminine; however, it is totaly 100% feminine in my opinion, and with NO coconut.

    I guess what some people tolerate as feminine is in the eye of the beholder. I could never wear Black Orchid, yet some people (guys) get mad if you mention it's too feminine. On the other hand, some guys think Givenchy Pi is too feminine... even though it's marketed towards men. And Givenchy Pi is one of my signature faves! Go figure.
