I'm getting a heavy dose of orange blossom, but the coconut and 'sand' element are there, tempering the orange blossom a bit. As it's drying down I'm smelling more of the orange blossom and it has a sort of candy-coated sweetness to it and I'm finding it interesting rather than repulsive LOL. Apr lmwimsatt Don't even bother with the parfum.
You might as well make it into something fun and useful and get the cooling lotion Apr Mwalton I dont know if the notes are wrong or if VS swapped the juice in my bottles?
My Red bottle smells like mostly floral. Which looks like the opposite of what is listed? So im a little confused. This one smells ok. Its basically light floral. It also doesnt last but a few minutes and its totally gone.
Really both are disappointing. The green one smells like Anistons Near dusk, so its already been done. And this one doesnt last. Mar juju Smells like monoi oil. Orange blossom smell is strong. Not as coconut-y as I would like. Longevity is very poor for an eau de parfum. Beach starts off with fresh and sweet orange blossom.
I'm really loving anything with orange blossom right now. That fades after a while and then you get a soft sand note with the slightest hint of coconut. I prefer this fragrance over Wild Palm but it is so very light. I may buy the matching body lotion to help with the longevity and sillage. This will be a fun scent to wear this summer on the weekends and while on vacation. Mar Jadelynn Almost bought this online without smelling first since VS has a really great bundle deal going on now and the bottle is just gorgeous!
Really glad I waited to smell it in store first. Surprisingly, I actually like this one better than the "Wild Palm" version, since I don't like anything with coconut in it as it reminds me of sunscreen. It turns out I actually don't really detect the coconut in this version, whereas in the other, there's a heavy "tropical oil" smell I assume the monoi oil that makes me think of sunscreen.
In general, both versions smell cheap, heavy, and generic to me. As someone who lives in the tropics, these sorts of summer fragrances always just smell like cheap tourist shops filled with overpriced items made in China.
Absolutely the sort of scent you wouldn't want to have on you anywhere as hot, sticky, and humid as any place in the tropics. The Wild Palm is strong and bold and this one is just, not. I really wanted to love this one but it's so soft and the notes to me are indiscernible. I do like it for the tiny amount of time that it lasts but it's gone as soon as it's on pretty much I will update in a few weeks to give it more of a chance.
Not sure if I also smelled "sand" in it though: I definitely have smelled something quite similar to this one before, but can't recall its name at this moment. I like this fragrance, even though there is nothing so unique about it. It just smells nice. And the bottle is lovely. Correct me if I'm wrong, but may I dare say, at some levels, it somehow "relates" to the new release Bombshell Seduction ?!?! Lol Comparing this one with its new release sister Very Sexy Now Wild Palm, I prefer this one much better, as from the other one, I smelled a strong, long lasting, strange, and chemically expired "coconut oil", just like how I experienced with Very Sexy Now Not sure if those rollerballs are still on sale though.
