A comparing review with Virgin Island Water
Seeing that there were no reviews for this clone of Virgin Island Water, I thought that this would make a great opportunity to write my first ever review. I assume that everyone know that this is a clone of a popular fragrance, hence that I will compare the two throughout the review.

With VIW on one hand and HV on the other, both freshly sprayed. First impressions are that they are meant to be alike but there are differences.

Scent:
Upon first spray of Hawaii Volcano, the lime is very clear and rather standalone compared to VIW. In the first few minutes, all I smell is lime but I can also feel that there is some backbone to the lime, but they are not clear until a few minutes have passed. Upon first spray of VIW you can smell the true scent from the beginning: the coconut is there and the rum is there. A very beautiful balanced trio between lime, coconut and rum.

Throughout the life of Hawaii Volcano, after a few minutes of application, the coconut accord slowly appears and stands aside the lime. However, the coconut is not very natural-feeling. Actually, something came to my mind... That the smell of the coconut reminded me of the smell of a tumble dryer or perhaps the fabrics after a tumble drying. Up close the skin, it does not smell very pleasant and Virgin Island Water is clearly the winner here when it comes to overall balance and for the overall artwork of their coconut accords. Also, I get no rum at all which is kinda sad, because the rum is considered to be one of the key ingredients in Virgin Island Water and makes for the overall "special" feel of having a drink by a sunny beach.

Performance:
Looking aside the scent and unto performance, as on my skin, you will most likely get better performance with the Hawaii Volcano. Take into consideration that Hawaii Volcano is an 'Extrait de Parfum' rather than 'Eau de Parfum' with the Creed. It should also last longer considering that the scent DNA is the same. However, a choice of more synthetics would also lead to better performance which most likely is the case as well.

With Hawaii Volcano, I get about 5 hours of longevity. 1 hour before it is a rather close skin scent.

With Virgin Island Water, I get about 3-4 hours of longevity and as Hawaii Volcano, about 1 hour before it is a close skin scent.

With neither you should expect beastmode performance as you will not get that with such scent DNA that consist of mostly citrusses.

Price:
A bottle of 55ml Hawaii Volcano is about 53 british pounds which is equal to 67 USD. For 100 ml juice of Hawaii Volcano the price would be 122 USD, taking the ml price of the 55ml bottle.
If you are in the EU, you can order a 100 ml Virgin Island Water for 165 Euros, which is equal to 192 USD.

Virgin Island Water is a popular fragrance and is readily available to try in stores or sample online. Alexandria Fragrances offers 5ml samples aswell, making it possible to try out before a blind purchase of a full bottle.

Final thoughts:
Between the two, I enjoy Virgin Island Water more. For me, the smell is more important than the performance. When you compare the two side-by-side, you can feel the quality is better with Creed. Between the two, I will sacrifice slightly better performance with a better overall scent and experience.

Scent
Slightly more musky and soapy than Virgin Island Water and also lacking the subtle, playful rum note. Pleasant but not an exact copy of VIW.
