excellent scent, really like it. I'm more of an Aventus fan than I am Virgin Island Water, and I'd say this fragrance leans more towards VIW, due to the dominant lime note, so if you love VIW then you will love this fragrance even more than I already do. If I was to be picky, I think I'd enjoy it even more if there was a version with a toned-down lime, or even better, simply just do a coconut version of Aventus. In fact, that's what I initially searched for, and the only option was this one, as this was the only Aventus hybrid that has coconut in it, so I had to try it, and despite my feelings of what could be better for a future fragrance, this is still a very good one to own, especially if you want something tropical, with the beach in mind. It will definitely get worn, hard, in hot weather situations, and will throw it in the suitcase for the next holiday too.
Absolutely amazing scent, really nice to wear especially in this warm weather.
Not going to lie, I blind bought this based solely on Neo's review (the first review). However, I'm so glad that I did. The combination of the pineapple from Aventus and the coconut/lime from VIW really make for a pleasant and memorable scent. You'll absolutely get a ton of compliments wearing this one, if that's what you're looking for. Also, performance is phenomenal. Definitely better than what you would get with VIW.
This is a great smelling fragrance. It much more VIW with pineapple added to the mix in the opening making it smell a lot like a pina colada.
I love pina coladas and if I were to live in Miami I would probably wear this every day, however living in England, I would probably only use this for summer holidays
I’ve never smelled the OG Creed Virgin Island waters and cannot compare it. VIW is the most I get from this one and it’s not mine.
I would say 70% VIW and 30% Aventus.
