    Default Virgin Island Water / juice inside

    I recently received a bottle of Virgin Island Water from Beauty Encounter. ( I have purchased Creeds from them before and have never had a problem.) Everything looks good with the bottle itself. The box was fine (although one of the inserts was missing which I know can happen when buying grey market which is no huge cause for alarm).

    The juice inside smells great. Exactly like it should. BUT the juice has an almost green tint to it. This is my first bottle of VIW. Should the liquid inside be completely clear like Millesime Imperial or is that normal for it to be slightly green tinted. Here is the batch number ...

    Thanks for the help!

    I would not worry..
    The lime note could be more concentrated to give it the green color

    Thanks for the replies! Now I just have to wait till there's no snow on the ground and it's over 70 degrees to wear it lol.

    I live in the Pacific Northwest, and while we get very little snow, it is grey and cloudy for much of the winter (although today is glorious!). I find that during a particularly dreary spell, VIW is a spirit lifter and echos summer.

    I feel the same with MI also by Creed a very good spirit lifter when it's grey and dreary outside. Promise of spring around the corner.

    Looks good. I thought it was going to be neon green or something. BTW, you also have a fresh 2013 batch.

    My bottle is clear as can be. I don't think green is the norm.

    Edit

    Based on your pics it looks normal.

    As I was curious, just checked my bottle too. No tint of any color under strong lighting - clear.

    Another case for any resident Creed batch experts, perhaps?
    Honestly, if it smells fine, it is fine - enjoy!

    I'm in the market for a 4oz bottle of Virgin Island Water. Any tips as to where I can get the best deal? I was thinking fragrancenet (with the 21% coupon code) would be best...

    not really OT for this thread however one of the discount retailers (fragrancenet is one), decants\splits, or if you find a trusted seller on Ebay would probably be your best bets......

    I have had good luck ( knock on wood) with fragrancenet and Beauty Encounter. Just go with what's cheaper.
