I've always been a coconut lover. I love the scent the taste, everything about coconut. I remember when I was visiting one of my moms friends and we all went to the mall and I HAD to go to bath and body works! When in there I smell absolutely everything even if I've smelt it before. But then I saw something new, Aruba Coconut. I took a quick whiff before we left and I fell in love. For weeks I begged for it, so we went to the store to smell it , again. When I actually sprayed it and smelt it for awhile I started to not like it. Idk how to explain it... At the same time I loved it but I wasn't satisfied. So I didn't purchase. But my mom came home with three lotions. One of them was Aruba coconut. Eagerly I opened it and smelled it. Not only was I disdisappointed but disgusted! It was horrible. It didn't even smell like coconuts to me. After a few months I decided to use it even though it made me sick with its candy like scent. My mom, dad, and their guest both smelt it before I even entered the room. They told me I smelt like a pina colada, and that it was a strong scent. I still didn't like it. Smell it in person before you purchase.

I really had high hopes for this! I purchased the Aruba Coconut body cream ( I loveee the triple moisture creams/lotions). It definitely moisturizes and all of that, but i can't stand the scent! It's great when I just give it a whiff in the bottle, but as soon as it is on my skin I notice this really strange underlying scent. I honestly can't even describe it! I had my mom try it (to make sure I wasn't crazy) and after about 5 minutes she noticed it too. It smells like vanilla gone bad. Something about it just gives me a headache! I'm bummed, I wish it smelled as good on me as it does in the bottle.

My favorite scent from bath and body works has to be Aruba Coconut. I purchased when it was first released in 2012 and have since stocked up. The scent lasts on my skin all day but I think the lasting power is like that because I use the lotion and the spray when I wear it. This has the most yummy sugary coconut scent, perfect for spring/summer.

As far as scented lotions go, this is one of my favorites. It smells like a very warm cooked coconut scent with a hint of something sweet, maybe vanilla. I have sensitive skin that usually doesn't do well with scented lotions, but this doesn't irritate my skin at all. I can't wear it on my legs, but I can on my hands and arms. It has a moderate staying power in terms of how long you can smell it on your skin. I find that if I put it on after a warm shower the scent lingers for a long time. If I put some on before I go to work it will usually last for about half of a 9 hour shift. If you like the smell of coconut and have sensitive skin, I would recommend trying this product out.

My review is for the 2013 version of this fragrance.
I purchased this in 2012 when it first came out (old packaging shown). And back then, it had ZERO, I mean ZERO staying power. I loved the scent, but personally could not smell it even 5 minutes after putting it on.
Flash forward to 2013, and call me crazy, but it stays on for a very long period of time (the new version has '2013' stamped on it, and the label is different). I stocked up at the semi-annual sale, and bought the shower gel (which is so-so, not my favorite) body cream, 3 lotions and 2 mists. Everytime I wear it, people LOVE it. It's definitley refreshing and just seems to smell like it would be perfect with a tan :)

When I have my morning shower and squeeze this shower gel on to my puff, I'm transported to an invigorating tropical waterfall, surrounded by trees of fruit and coconut. I've never experienced a coconut fragrance that was so refreshing and clean.
I follow my shower with the body creme and it leaves my skin delightfully scented all day--even without the body spray, which I keep in my purse in case of sweaty bike rides.
I will cry when they discontinue this one.

This is perfect for a vacation on the Jamaican North Coast. Very sweet and sexy scent. One whiff and I'm in paradise, walking on a white, warm sandy beach, sipping on a tropical drink. Truly exotic. However, if you're not a lover of very sweet scents this might not be for you.

Ouuu if there was "summer in a bottle" this would be it. I really love anything coconut scented all year long so i picked up 2 of these lotions when they had a sale. It's a very fruity coconut scent. Not as warm and creamy as some others I've smelled (Body Shop Coconut Body Butter for example). It apparently has musk in it but I don't smell that at all. I smell more of a tropical fruit like mango with a bit of grape mixed in with coconut.
This is wonderful layered with the body spray. As for moisturizing, it moisturizes quite well. I prefer it more in the summer as I find it's not something meant for really dry skin. It may work more for someone with a normal-dry skin type. It's not greasy at all and it will linger on your skin for hours. It absorbs really well on the skin also.
It reminds me of sun soaked days, laying on the beach, sipping girly drinks and having fun. Perfect as a mid winter pick me up, too!

I didn't like this one at all on me. I just got a couple of the trial sizes when this first came out and it smelled nice in the bottle but when I put it on it was way too strong and I couldn't stand it so I tried to wash it off. First you smell the coconut, which is nice, but then it starts to smell almost floral and I don't like floral scents so this was not for me.
