Head cinema name, Roland Kaiser and a pleasant, superficial citrus coconut freshling
Slipped. Although already 12 years old, I didn't notice this Creed so far somehow and only by the monstrously high evaluations here it was noticeable recently with the Rumscrollen.

What do you want me to say? A burden to write a commi directly after Catch22 (which we both had several times before). Then you always have to sweep up a bunch of chat shards and I sometimes feel like the "relativator" :-)

In a nutshell - I can't quite understand the hype of points here either, but I would beware of practicing tarring and feathering here. Without question - the name of the smell lets a marketingklug head cinema run off, whereby alone the little word Virgin might have made here or other journeymen hibbelig. The whole thing combined with "Iceland", and already we are at Roland Kaiser's "Santa Maria". Dripping kitschy Schlager, which I got however - I confess it - since childhood earworm-like imposed and which in the head already constructs a horny cliché atmosphere.

If you pull off all these paradise-virgin-white-beach-suckeries, you will have an entertaining, pleasant, refreshing-nice, summer-scent-changing between citrus and mild coconut. No more, no less. Not very ingenious, little depth, a terrible durability and dreary Sillage. And yet a friendly smelling boy for the dog days and around.

His hellos much money unquestionably not worth, in my closet stands half a dozen ideally fresh summer scents around; but who just would like to have the coconut in addition and his account full to bursting, may treat himself to a bottle and maybe play "Santa Maria" or "Conquest of Paradise" or "Eldorado", then we would also be musically on the right cliché latitudes.

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

Rating Luxustrash
2.Holiday day: a day by the sea. And what better fragrance could there be than Creed Virgin Island Water? When I packed my perfume bag I had already sprayed it on and only harvested one of my friend's strained "Puuuuh", but now he has to go through; I want to test him on the beach.

After the bath bag is packed and the pale skin is thickly creamed, I place 2 timid sprayers on my wrist and décolleté. I like this fragrance, it was clear to me from the first time I smelled it. With his refreshing lime lemonade, the sweet coconut cream and the light plastic note, he also got the rating "Luxustrash", because as much as I try hard to get Caribbean feelings, which wouldn't be a problem because of the white, fine sandy beach, the cheerful sunshine and the unusually calm North Sea, a completely different scenery comes to my mind because of the olfactory background:

Outdoor pool Wanne-Eickel 1996. Jeanette, who has smeared herself thickly with coconut-containing tanning oil, lines up at the kiosk and buys a Calippo Fizz. Hm delicious, it is so hot that the ice becomes liquid faster than planned and when trying to drink the rest of the liquid from the pack, as the cool kids do, she misses her target and half of it runs over her chin and drips onto the swimsuit. What a bummer! Quickly into the chlorine water and wash off the sticky...She only jumps into the pool for a short time, when she reappears, the water rolls off her sun-oiled skin...

And I'm also not astonished when the scent of a refreshing swim in the sea smells and holds and holds and holds almost unchanged...until I shower it away in the evening together with the sun cream and last, stubbornly sticky grains of sand.

One thing is clear: Virgin Island Water polarises and is not a pleasing fragrance. One must clearly decide for him, then he spoils his carrier with unique limes and coconut flavors, no more and no less.

Very helpful Review 28  
Oh, there would be in life...
more moments like this! Virgin Island Water hits the skin, the clothes, the hair. A top note rises into the nose and ignites the fireworks. Neurons fire, the nose sniffs, the brain ejects endorphins... Reward, bliss, ecstasy, addiction!

Perfection is impossible and yet... Virgin Island Water... is pretty damn close. The perfume draws an island in the Caribbean (Ach?) with coconuts (no!) and palms, with sun and lightness. Holiday, lightness and sunshine.

Creed simply manages to wake up the holiday, pack it in a bottle and cork it up. Ingenious, fabulous and gorgeous. Virgin Island Water is actually an olfactory orgasm. I can't put it any other way!

Thanks for reading. Smells good, Lars

Which is it: left or right?
Just don't think that I have forgotten what landed on the left hand and what landed on the right hand this morning. It was "Terracotta" by Guerlain on the left and "Virgin Island Water" by Creed on the right. I had to repeat the Creed test, because the last time it was totally drowned in a vanilla cloud of "Dolce & Gabbana pour Femme".
Immediately afterwards, I rushed to the bakery - and there it came: the FIRST fragrance compliment of my life! The shop assistant shines at me and says: "Wow, you smell great! But was it her spontaneous exclamation? Sniffing my arms together came to a clear result: It's the mixture! Hmmm, can I only say: Expensive decision.
But what is really very weird is that the two fragrances actually go together really well - and are similar in feeling. I swear: I didn't know what was in "terracotta" at all - but after my direct hit with the blind test of "Samsara" I simply decided to test the Guerlain scent on the left side.
On my left hand, "Terracotta" immediately brings a load of coconut into my nose - quite sweet and mixed with white heavy flowers right at the beginning. Underneath, above and in between the vanilla mixes very quickly. Really nice vanilla, but of the sweet, sugared variety, not the spicy one. And the fragrance can't deny that it has a good portion of musk to offer.
"Virgin Island Water" starts out sparkling fresh in comparison, with a beautiful lemon-lime-bergamot mixture. Coconut and white flowers are quickly added here as well, but less sweet and opulent. There is no vanilla underneath, but it gets sweeter and sweeter - and yes, there is indeed a note of rum - and "Virgin Island Water" also has a warm musky base.
My unintentional scent comparison becomes more and more oblique the more time passes: Because the scents are getting closer and closer together! In the base, the difference for me is that "Virgin Island Water" additionally retains a spicy component (The ginger? Or maybe a rest of bergamot?) until the end, which makes it lighter and somehow more summery. "Terracotta" finally turns into a wonderfully creamy coconut-musk mixture, which would be too heavy for me on hot days and ultimately a bit too sweet.
And so for me there is a clear winner in this random fragrance comparison: for the summer, "Virgin Island Water" by Creed is on the ever-lengthening wish list!

Such a gorgeously crafted blend of lime and creamy coconut. This is the best "vacation scent" I've smelled to date. Mood altering scent!

You haters can say whatever you want about VIW or Creed, but we all know that, if something is copied often it is because it works. Be quiet

Tropical paradise, fresh, creamy, sensual. A winner. On the top of my Wish List. But sadly, not worth its crazy price.

Tropical island, sand, teal water, sunscreen and a Pina colada in my hand. Well made and not cloying, more citrus than creamy coconut
