    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.

    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.

    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.

    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).

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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?

    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 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.
