    Haven't smelled in a while. Remember a sort of light coconut smell. Try Virgin Island Water or one of the Tommy Bahama Set Sails.

    I've always gotten a predominant carnauba wax vibe when sampling one of Creed's fragrances, and if memory serves me correctly, I believe it was Virgin Island Water.

    I don't know what Sex Wax Surf Wax smells like though I would imagine it might have a coconut/sun tan lotion aroma. You might want to check out the review of Annick Goutal - Ninfeo Mio (especially by Caltha from Sweden).... probably not the top and middle notes of Ninfeo Mio but its drydown. Hope that helps.

    We used to chew Sex Wax like gum when I was a kid in school. Wow, your post really takes me back!

    I just got a bottle of Tommy Bahama Set Sail St. Barts and it reminds me A LOT of Sex Wax. Not exactly the same, but definitely a very similar vibe. As a former surfer, I'm absolutely loving the stuff. Wish they sold a stronger concentration, though. Probably my favorite summer fragrance at the moment.

    Did you ever wish you could bring the whole surfy beach vibe into ... And now, you can have your entire home smelling just like that with a surf wax candle. ... ultra hip beach party because everyone just loves the smell of surf.

    Interesting topic. I DO enjoy the smell of board wax. I would say something light and aquatic...Set Sail St. Bart's is probably the best example given that comes close. The only thing missing is that plasticy waxy smell that comes from it that you can really only get from candles or from the wax itself.

    This is weird, I could have sworn I've bumped a thread like this myself - it must have been on fragrantica.

    Mr Zog's coconut smell is probably one of my favourite synthetic smells in the world. I tried to find a fragrance like it and failed miserably - they do do an air freshner if you want your car to smell like it, but it really doesn't capture the full quality. It's also too bloody strong to use in a car and leaves this sort of noxious haze and feeling in the car. I had it in a room at university and even then, it was still too strong.

    Virigin Island Water is sort of but also nowhere near the smell of Sex Wax. I don't really think you can capture it - or find an adequate scent - unless someone literally sets out to make a waxy coconut perfume.

    Probably a scent best captured with their air freshner and candle if you really, really want to have 'it' but don't surf anymore.

    Maybe you could use the surf wax itself in some way other than it's intended purpose. Maybe not on your body, but you could probably retro fit the stuff into some type of home fragrance.....or furniture polish. lol

    Maybe Pirette Fragrance Oil. It supposedly has a surf wax note. Or Ulu Lagoon Beach Please.

    S-Perfume by Alberto Morillas was designed to smell like surboard wax. He used the same formula in Oxymus by A Lab on Fire, so you should find it there as well.

    I've used Sex Wax before. It does smell really good. Not sure if I'd want to use it as fragrance though.
