Ehh I really wanted to like this, but I'm so weird with coconut scents. I guess I like more manufactured coconut scents, because this is a very natural smell. It's not unpleasant in any way but it's just not my favorite. However, it is very moisturizing and non-greasy, just like all of B&BW's lotions. I bought a mini bottle so I probably will use it all up by the spring, and I don't think I'd repurchase again. continued >>
This is probably one of my favorite scents, not only from BBW but in general, I would pick this over perfume anyday! It's so soft, and the cream is wonderful! I'm surprised it's not as popular as the creamy coconut --- too bad this has been d/c.
I really liked the fragrance in the store. However, in BBW, it is filled with all kinds of fragrance so I wouldn't smell very well. After the purchase, I find it a little sickly sweet for me. I think it is because the scent is too OVERWHELMING and OVERPOWERING! A small dab of this lotion can perfume a whole room! I think if this scent is toned down more, it would actually be a lovely smell.
Cannot stand this scent anymore! :( I'll probably just give away.
Exotic Coconut is wonderful...smells like coconut with a little vanilla maybe...layers nicely with the body spray...
Maybe it's just me and my chemistry, but just about every Bath and Body Works lotion I've tried has this sharp annoying note to it that overpowers any good scent that it could have had. The exotic coconut is no exception. I love tropical scents and it smelled great from the bottle so I went against my usual judgement and bought this one. It's horrible! It smells so strong and sharp that I could barely keep it on my skin for ten minutes before I was trying to wash it off. Like the other Bath and Body Works lotions I've tried, this one had great potential but it failed horribly on me. I'm not rich by any means so when I pay $10.50 for an 8 oz. lotion I expect something much better.
I love it but I like the smell of coconut and most things tropical; subtle and not over-powering and the price is right
I was lucky enough to get some of this on sale but the salesperson did tell me they are only bringing it in store January and June. Online is the only other option, but it isn't always available. This is definitely my type of coconut, I LOVE coconut type smells, the musky-ness works well with my body. So this was definitely a keeper for me!
I really like this lotion. It smells like a rich coconut...a creamy coconut, and it seems to have a hint of vanilla. It is definitely a food scent. I love it but need to be in the mood for it...which is usually most of the time!
Smells Like fried food. Tried this today at Bath and Body Works. Felt like I was smelling fried fast food. Could not detect any type of coconut. Would not buy let alone try it again.
Smells good, coconut with vanilla and musk notes, Tropical, but warm enough to wear in cooler months and not feel like a pina colada. I see the WVS comparisons, but it's far more coconutty then that. While wearing this, a friend commented that "something smells like coconut macaroons" and I said I believed it was my lotion, he said "It smells pretty amazing"
The formula is typical B&BW, not especially moisturizing, but very fragrant. Luckily, I did not experience the burning other reviewers mentioned, and I have *very* sensative skin. continued >>
