Mojito refreshment or: Suddenly I like coconut
I was really skeptical when I pulled this scent out of a sample packet: I must have read somewhere that Virgin Island Water is a coconut scent. And although I love eating (or drinking) coconut, I actually always find it annoying as a scent. So I braced myself for the worst case scenario: cheap coconut sunscreen that knocks you out at 10 yards.

This scent is the opposite. Coconut is there right at the start, but it's not coconut sunscreen and it's not hair conditioner. The aforementioned Pina Colada fits the bill nicely, completely homemade from fresh ingredients of course. It doesn't push itself loudly to the forefront, nor is it the first thing I smell. It's the lime, and with it comes the rum right from the start. i think of mojito and look into the scents. Indeed: lime, rum, cane sugar, all there for the summer refreshing cocktail.
The initial effervescence decreases with time, but does not go away completely. Instead, more and more creaminess comes through, as if it were evening in the cocktail bar, while flowers discreetly exude their fragrance. And if you're thinking "I don't want to smell like alcohol, sticky stains on wooden tables", you're thinking of the wrong kind of cocktail bar. This one is quiet, beautiful and understated. There's soft music playing and the waves crashing in the background. We're on the beach of course, didn't I mention that? There is a lot of white being worn, and the conversations of the other patrons are just a low murmur. The word noble immediately comes to mind.

I like this scent. For me, the initial effervescence and freshness could last longer, but even so it is insanely summery and delicious. Which I'm sure is because the coconut doesn't play the main role, but stays in the background. I get to drink the mojito while pina colada is being prepared at the bar. I'm looking forward to the summer.

Summer catapult from the bottle
I dedicate my first comment to the first niche fragrance I came into contact with - Creed Virgin Island Water. It was the first sharing in which I had participated here, full of anticipation I expected a few days after the end of the sharing the postman, fished the fragrance mail from my mailbox and sprayed me the fragrance to test on the forearm. The first impression: good. No more and no less.

In my first few months on Parfumo, it has manifested itself to me that a niche fragrance is usually superior to a designer. So my expectations were very high and the initially rock-solid fragrance almost disappointing, I had expected something extremely special, which immediately blows me away. This experience was to repeat itself a few times in the future, until I understood that a niche fragrance is first of all also "just" a fragrance and moves in a certain spectrum. So it doesn't matter how expensive, special or exclusive a fragrance is, it will initially strike you positively or negatively and probably not unfold its full potential, more on that in a moment.
After now the first preference was fixed, I processed my "shock" and again got involved in the fragrance, I made my experience with a second phenomenon, which I have already witnessed on the sidelines from the audio and Hifi area. When changing audio equipment, such as new speakers or headphones, many people swear by what is called "playing in" and "listening in". Thereby the sound should be distorted by (too) high expectations at the beginning and after a few hours of listening you should be able to hear the full potential. The more fragrances moved in with me, the more often I applied fragrances and the more often I tried to form a judgment, the more I also perceived this phenomenon in relation to fragrances.

So it came that I liked the initially found good fragrance in the following days steadily better and I regularly sprayed it on my forearm even just in the evening to enjoy it. But why did I do this? To answer that, more days and weeks had to pass before I realized what it was about this scent that ultimately fascinated me. With each molecule of scent I inhaled, I was catapulted to a certain place or a beautifully specific situation in the height of summer last year. It's a bit like smelling sunscreen in the dead of winter, the big difference here though is that while I have actually applied sunscreen with its own scent in a particular situation, I have never smelled this particular combination of scents in such a form before. I was all the more surprised that not only I am transported into a certain summer setting, but also many other Parfumo members who associate the scent with summer beaches, sunsets and pina colada.

Even if to the fragrance itself has already been said by many, much more practiced noses something, I would like to lose for the sake of completeness also a few sentences about it.
When first spraying on comes a neat coconut cloud with a very tangy lime against. The lime pulls back increasingly in the course of the fragrance, but fulfills a in my opinion a very important purpose, as it stands opposite the coconut as a counterpart and thereby neutralizes the sweetness. On my skin I am very satisfied with the perfomance, depending on the day I perceive the scent between 6-8 hours well, on my clothes it is always perceivable when smelling closer even in the evening. For me, an all-round successful fragrance that I no longer want to miss.

Thank you for reading my first comment and I look forward to constructive criticism and interesting comments.

After a hot summer day..
After a hot day at the lake quickly home, off in the shower, and wrapped in a casual outfit and this hammer fragrance off in the convertible to the party.... that is for me the perfect occasion for Virgin Island Water.
i love this soft refreshment that the fragrance brings, the soft noble coconut scent and the association with vacation and sea?

That said, I really like wearing it on colder days too, especially on a scarf I love smelling it after a day or two, the scent is distinctive but becomes wonderfully soft and very gentle!

Today I have afforded with the bottle for the third time and will do it again ?

I'm in love... in Bali
"Holy sh....." was my first thought when I sprayed this scent on myself.
Not because I like to swear, but because the scent instant triggered me emotionally in a way I haven't been triggered by a scent in a long time. It just went straight to the hypothalamus (one of the brain regions for processing these types of scents).
I'm sitting at the beach bar in Bali, sipping my favorite lime and coconut cocktail. On the glass a ylang ylang flower that gives off its scent on the bottom of the glass I find a delicious piece of fresh ginger, it smells spicy and deliciously fresh at the same time. Longingly I look out at the turquoise blue sea, when a stranger puts a jasmine blossom behind the place.
We walk together on the white beach, the sun is already a little lower and spreads a pleasant warm atmosphere. In the early evening we sit next to each other on the beach with a delicious sugared rum, which supports the warm atmosphere even more. I can smell the sand, the sun is slowly setting. I am in love!
....For those who don't want to read the long text: I smell the ylang-ylang first, immediately followed by this incredibly fresh shower of lime, coconut and tangerine. Then the ginger comes through sharp but fresh, slowly blending with the jasmine and making the whole scent warmer and brighter. At the very end I perceive a rum-sugar note, which comes across but in no way alcoholic but rather pleasantly warm.
This fragrance must immediately in my collection! The summer of 2021 can come.
Absolutely unisex

Pure holiday
Creed Virgin Island Water - developed to transform the Caribbean into a fragrance.
And Creed has succeeded! When I wear it, I think of white sandy beaches, deep blue water, clear skies, sun and vacation.
In this fragrance, however, you can also find the not-so-great sides of a holiday in the Caribbean:
The heat can also be oppressive, just as the fragrance after a few hours is only heavy, without these great tangy notes from the beginning. Also the pina colada is not everyone's cup of tea, just like the strongly noticeable coconut in the perfume. If you love at the beginning of the holiday still the breakfast buffet with a huge selection of fresh fruit, so you have but at the end of the pineapple perhaps overeaten and would like to smell it in the perfume no longer so gladly.

And no sooner is one of the holiday back in the daily grind one longs for the Caribbean back...
Exactly how I feel with this fragrance: I wear it on and am in holiday heaven! But then a few hours pass and it becomes too heavy and pappig for me. But no sooner has it evaporated in the evening or the next day, I long again for the lovely-sweet-fruity Accorden from the beginning and I spray him again, only to regret it a few hours later again a little bit.

Coconut & Alcohol
If it says Creed on it, there's something good in it... think! Whenever I smell this perfume, I perceive only coconut. The other ingredients are drowned out. I don't think it takes a Creed to do that. Perfumers who make for drugstores can do that just as well. With Creed's yardstick, I'm afraid this isn't anything the big deal. By the mainstream yardstick, however, this contender can be smelled. But beware, it's been my experience that it's very polarizing. While some find coconut heavenly summery great, others run away when they perceive only a nuance.

Coconut and lime make the best summer scent
34°C in the shade. Sandy beach. You're wearing a white, airy short-sleeved shirt. The top buttons are undone. Tanned skin underneath. In your hand a cocktail glass with Piña Colada. On your skin: Creed - Virgin Island Water.

So far, none of the Creed fragrances have been able to convince me. However, when I smelled my filling of Virgin Island Water I knew immediately: the has something special. I sprayed the fragrance on my skin and me was quite quickly clear: you will join my collection!

As a fan of sweet winter fragrances, I would not have thought that a summer fragrance could blow me away times so.
Lets wear in the spring and summer in my opinion for every occasion and every day.
The durability is outstanding for a summer perfume.

Clear buy recommendation on my part

Pina Colada, Raffaello but with sea breeze and aquatic notes
Good evening,

i read here many good and also apt comments on the fragrance.
I am in many points congruent, but would like to point out an aspect that I have not read here so yet.

With Virgin Island Water I read with very many, "coconut holiday perfume" with Piña colada Silage and beach feeling. Missing only the beautiful woman in white with sun hat and the white parrot.

Yaaaay.

Certainly this is a wonderful and natural smelling, freshly shaken summer cocktail with a good to very good performance for a summer scent. Of course, such a cocktail does not keep up with oud, incense, resins, etc., but I think the durability is rated too weak here.
There are many beautiful summer fragrances with holiday feeling and we all wear these, these dark days maybe here and there, to remind us how it was recently.

I find the quality of the ingredients, Creed typically very successful, it all smells very natural and pleasant and EDEL. No syntethic cotton candy, coconut cream or spice.

What comes to me already written in the fragrance something too short are the aquatic notes (I'm not just at the cocktail bar no I go to the beautiful lukewarm Caribbean sea). I have worn this year in the summer many aquatic Bonds and recognize in this fragrance often also next to the (for me not at all gourmandigen but pleasantly natural) sweetness, the nut and the sugar cane also the tart lime and also after a short time the musk, hibiscus accord.

The fragrance is pure summer in a very pleasant not too sweet, tangy sea rushing package.

I look forward to the summers that are still to come!

Caribbean beach bar
Something completely different! Virgin Island Water is classic like so many Creed fragrances on the fresh side. But this one is somehow still a bit different. He starts with a lot of lime and other fruits. On my skin after 2 hours it shows that the lime is pushed back and the coconut becomes more present. It's nicely balanced. But I can't detect much more than those two accords, unfortunately. When I wear it and close my eyes I see myself sitting at a beach bar in the Caribbean. Probably has that also with our current situation zutun and my holiday maturity.

In the durability and sillage, it is as typical for Creed rather in the midfield of the perfume world. Compared with niche fragrances rather in the lower range.

The flacon pleases me very well. Same shape as all but by the silver accents it looks noble.

Refreshing coconut lime
I always have something to nag about.
Not with that smell!
My wife has received many compliments on the scent. I like to wear it myself. Absolutely unisex for me.
Very natural, refreshing, tasty lime at the beginning, which runs into a creamy coconut base.
Very simple, but deliciously refreshing at every stage of the fragrance process and never artificial.

B.2019. A simple fresh-citric Summer fragrance, balanced by a soft creamy sweet-floral base. Lacks performance. Way overhyped! Piña Colada??

Lime, coconut, white rum and sugar cane: it doesn't get more Caribbean than that. The vibe of summertime at the beach in a bottle.

One of the best (if not the best!) lime/coconut scents in the game! But beware! It’ll automatically set you in vacation/relax mode!
