    Creed Virgin Island Water (Lime and coconut)

    Don't know about the masculinity factor but women tend to respond well to it at least.

    Nowhere really, should have put the caveat that they're discontinued.

    Beyond Paradise can be found in a few stores online... Quasar is eBay only.

    +1 VIW

    Neela Vermeire - Bombay Bling



    Neither are what I would call "masculine", but it will be hard to find mango or coconut in a purely masculine form I think.

    Lili Bermuda South Water meets your criteria.

    Tommy Bahama St. Kitts is also a very appealing fruity fragrance.

    If you're looking for an unusual take on the "fruity exotic" category of scent, Remy Latour Cigar is an interesting option. It's primarily a green-woody tobacco scent, but it's accented with plum and overripe pineapple.

    Do you like passionfruit? If so try Arielle Shoshana by Arielle Shoshana.

    Otherwise try Bahiana by MPG.

    Also adding:

    - both Aventus and Elixir of Poseidon by Dua,

    - also an 80s powerhouse predecessor to the smoky pineapple theme of Aventus, namely Lapidus pour Homme,

    - plus One Man Show Gold Edition by the same house, this time with a musky base covered by top notes of exotic fruit,

    - Quasar Adventure for banana leaves,

    - Endymion EDC by Penhaligons, if you might like minimal pineapple notes, much less pronounced than in Aventus/Lapidus, drenched in more pronounced chocolate, mocha, sage and lavender ones

    - Kenzo Jungle and CK Obsession Night for Coconuts

    - while Dune pour Homme by Dior manages to combine exotic fruit, mainly fig notes with floral aquatic notes into a more classic type of scent, like a modern, rather than dated and conservative take of a very French and very Old World type of elegance, perhaps along the lines of Eau Sauvage by the same house and to a lesser extent, Givenchy Gentleman, Chanel pour Monsieur, YSL pour Homme by some of the main competing houses, should all of these timelessly elegant perfume creations get ramped up with more exotic and casual-fresh notes that fit the final mix just perfectly

    Not exactly fruity exotical, but Baldessarini Del Mar and Kenzo Pour Homme could be regarded as "tropical" scents in a way, subjectively of course. You also might want to try YSL L'Homme Libre.
