    Default COCONUT - what are your favorite coconut scents for men

    1. Creed - Virgin Island Water
    2. Marc Jacobs for Men
    3. Tom Ford - Black Orchid
    4. Bond No 9 - Fire Island
    5. David Beckham - Intimately Beckham Night
    6. David Beckham - Signature Summer for Him
    7. Calvin Klein - Obsession Night for Men
    8. Paul Smith - London
    9. Diptyque - Philosykos
    10. Dolce & Gabanna - The One
    11. Comptoir Sud Pacifique- Vanille Coco, Coco Extreme, Coco Figue
    12. Bath & Body Works - Coconut Lime Verbena
    13. Hermes Sur de Nil
    14. Tommy Bahama - Set Sail
    15. Givenchy Pi Neo
    16. Avon - Tomorrow
    17. Hesperides - Essenze di Mezzanotte
    18. Vittoria Apuana - Profumi del Forte
    19. Yves Rocher - Coconut


    I prefer the coconut in high-end fragrances like Virgin Island Water. I can not smell any coconut in Paul Smith London or Obsession Night, or D&G The One.

    The fig/coconut notes smells great in Philosykos and Marc Jacobs. I dont care for the other fig fragrances from Hermes and other houses.

    I wish I could find another high-end, coconut-centered fragrance, like VIW.
    Just coconut without the lime.

    Creed Sublime Coconut would be amazing

    The only coconut note I enjoy is in VIW and that's because it's mixed in with the lime, rum, and sugar to give it the tropical cocktail smell.

    If you like VIW, you should give Aramis Bermuda Tonic a try. It's all about coconut, eucalyptus and rum.

    Set Sail St Barts is my other favourite with coconut.

    If I enjoyed coconut it would be Batucada.

    Out on a limb here, but Bronze Goddess by Estee Lauder is one that I have always enjoyed and have never been told it smells like a women's fragrance. Reminds me a lot of the Coppertone Suntan Oils from my childhood.. which could be why I like it But for real, give it a try

    Premier Figuier by L’Artisan has a beautiful milky coconut IMO. It also has a fig note though, so you probably won't like it.

    Not a coconut fan, but it is well rendered in Serge Lutens' Un Bois de Vanille.

    Frederic Malle - Carnal Flower is one I forgot to mention.

    My favorite rendition of coconut is in VIW. I wish they could isolate that note and sell it as a high-end coconut scent. There are too many car-freshner, sweet, cheap, synthetic roo deodorizer type coconut scents out there. I find them either too sweet and sugary, or too dry and leafy. The coconut in VIW is the raw, fresh, fleshy white inner part of the coconut which I go crazy for. There is nothing else like it... so far.

    Only one coconut fragrance ever does it for me and that's Hesperides by Essenze di Mezanotte. It's an Italian unisex EDP

    I wouldn't call Philosykos a coconut scent, but from your list I would choose this one!

    I'm scratching my head on the scents you have listed.

    My bottle of Esprit Night Life Summer Edition Man I'd call a coconut scent, with a lot more coconut in it than 9 of your first 10 listed scents (I don't know one of them).
    Regards,

    That's because there is not coconut in the one. But the notes together seem to have a coconut vibe.
    I post lots from my I phone so if this looks like a text message that's why ( :

    Out of what I've tried, Virgin Island Water tops the coconut charts, followed by Carnal Flower, Batucada, and then Premier Figuier Extreme.

    I'd like to say that a few on there I get no coconut at all from, black orchid, jardin sur le nil, and with philosykos I think people get the fig confused with coconut, still a heavenly scent.

    Virgin Island Water is my favorite coconut frag. The whole composition is beautiful and just works amazingly with my skin's chemistry.

    Exactly what he said. I only had a small sample of this but I loved it. Will buy a full bottle hopefully soon.

    Thanks. Virgin Island Water is my favorite coconut-based scent; however, I wish Creed would isolate the coconut note and sell something along the lines of Sublime Vanille.

    The ultra-refined high quality vanilla in Jaipur Homme makes me wish there was a similar high quality coconut dominated scent of similar quality.

    I know I'm dreaming
