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

Yeah that Diptyque - Philosykos, just one big giant coconut.
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.
Vittoria Apuana - Profumi del Forti
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
-Cologne is the only fashionable thing that fits me! (Me, circa 1997-present)
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.
ointments and perfume delight the heart....
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.
Sean Jean Unforgivable Black.
However, none of these are stricly coconut.

It has to be Virgin Island Water but after I tried it I just call it Island Water.lol
Coconut is Virgin Island Water, Virgin Island Water is Coconut
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).
Definitely VIW, I didn't even realise there was coconut in The One...
Marc Jacobs For Men blends it well.
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.
Virgin Island Water is my favorite coconut perfume. I am going to buy a full bottle when I finished my MI.
***My favourite from my collection***

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
