    Default NISHANE - fan your flames - coconut scent?

    How prominent is the coconut? Is this worth the price tag on Luckyscent? Is it unisex?

    It's prominent but quite unusual. It smells dark with rum, burnt tonka and tobacco. Not your usual VIW coconut. Leans to masculine side. As for the price tag, you should sample and see for yourself if it's worth it.

    +1 - I wish the coconut note wasn't so prominent. If so, I would enjoy it much more.

    Agree with camorr - pick up a decant or sample.

    Best of luck!

    Need to remember to request a sample of this the next time I make a purchase at Luckyscent.

    Nishane is the worst company out there.

    I want to buy their discovery set, but Paypal shows an error related to their webshop.

    I mail them - no answer.

    Reminders - no answer.

    These people are already rich it seems, not trying to help a customer who wants to buy their products.

    The coconut is about on equal par with the other notes (rum, cedar, tobacco, and to a lesser extent tonka and oakmoss). You'll notice it, and it's an important element in the composition, but it doesn't dominate or hide any of the other notes. It's a very well-balanced scent. It is unisex but probably smells better on a man, imo. So I think it leans to the masculine side just a little.

    In my opinion it's worth the price. This is a purchase that I'm very happy with and one of my recent favorites. But I don't recommend a blind buy. Weak projection (about 6 inches off the skin) and a slight "candle shop potpourri" aroma may turn some people off. But I mean slight, as it's not too much for me, and I'm someone who doesn't normally enjoy the candle shop smell.

    I'm surprised the coconut is too prominent for some of you. I actually expected it to be much more prominent, and feel it's just about 20% of the overall smell here. But maybe it comes out more on some than it does on others.

    If I had to score FYF, I'd give it a solid 8 out of 10, with the potential of 9 as it seems like one I will grow to like even more with repeated with wears, it's just such a nice blend of all the right notes, elegant comfort in a warm, spicy, woody blend. They didn't over do it by trying to fit too much into the composition, and instead seemed to focus on making sure each note really fit well and played off the other notes in order to develop and enhance the overall picture. There's rum--but you didn't spill a drink on yourself. Coconut--but you're not wearing suntan lotion. And tobacco--but you're not coming home from a day at the plantation. Good stuff.

    Just to note, it kind of reminds me of a Slumberhouse fragrance, but made lighter and more streamlined to a certain degree. Probably more immediately wearable for most people as well.

    Makes me want to break my sample back out and give it another chance with fresh eyes.

    The first time I tried it, the coconut, rum and tobacco aspects didn't seem well integrated with the underlying structure. It felt mostly like a very bitter wood-smoke-moss composition, and very little smoothing from the sweeter notes. I neither wanted nor expected it to be a pure gourmand, but I was looking forward to a more "creamy" wood tone, thanks to the coconut and rum.

    To answer the OP, I agree that the coconut was present but not prominent. My commentary is more about how the note fits with the underlying structure, than about the note self, which seemed quite nice, taken alone.

    Yeah, I read a review by someone else complaining about the strength of the cedar accord. He said something about it dominating the entire scent until it settled down and making it more enjoyable (or something like that). So it's very possible for some people it's too strong, maybe due to skin chemistry or sensitivity to a certain note. I did not find this the case for myself at all though. I think it has a solid cedar accord that's present and important to the structure, but nothing that's dominant or that detracts from the other notes.

    Sampled this one yesterday and if you're looking for one of the most NON-linear scents you've ever smelled, this just might be the one.

    This fragrance goes through at least 3 distinct periods after application that smell completely unlike the other two. And unfortunately (for me), I only really liked 2 of the 3, but the 3rd (final dry down) wound up being one of the greatest woody fragrances I've ever smelled in my life. If Nishane could bottle up a linear scent that smells primarily like the dry down of FYF, it would be one beautiful and popular fragrance, IMO.

    This fragrance starts out with coconut and rum, and if I didn't know those were the notes, I never would have guessed either of them. I like both of those notes, but not the way they are used in FYF. To me, the opening just smells like a semi-sweet burnt smell and was not especially pleasant. The midnotes contain tobacco and tonka bean, but I couldn't smell them either.

    This fragrance was a non-descript fragrance until the dry down for me, and oh my goodness what a dry down. I never could have dreamed this fragrance could have turned into what it does after smelling the opening.

    The basenotes listed include Chinese cedar and oak moss. It developed into one of these best smelling woody fragrances I've smelled. I suppose it was a cedar smell, although the overall smell to me just smelled like a conglomeration of woody smells you smell while walking through a forest's floor. Whether it's cedar, cypress, pine, fir or what have you, it simply smelled like a beautiful forest, and I dearly love that smell.

    Once it gets to this stage, it lasts and lasts. I would say the projection is good, as I could continually smell it on myself for a long period of time.

    Unfortunately, even though the end is fantastic, I can't see myself spending the high amount of money for this, mainly because of the unremarkable opening and odd middle smell. I just don't know where I would wear such a thing.

    Will have to get a sample of this. The descriptions have me a bit curious.
