    Default Does anyone think VIW smells like athlete's foot powder?

    I've probably only smelled athlete's foot powder once in my life but it has such an unforgettably unique smell to it. That as soon as I tried VIW for the first time I was instantly reminded of it.

    Anyone?

    VIW also smells cheesy to me. Like it was once a wonderful fragrance but has spoiled after being left on the backseat of a car on a hot day.

    No, but when Creed release Royal Athlete's Foot in the future, rest assured it will exclusively consist of naturally infused fungus scraped off the pieds royale of European aristocrats (Counts upward).

    Coconut doesn't smell like cheese. With the foot powder the only thing I could think of is that your associating the lime with the menthol or mint that they add to foot powder. You might prefer Tommy Bahama Set Sail Saint Bart's because it's more of a clean type fragrance than VIW.
