***DUPE ALERT*** For those that love this & can't find it, Victoria's Secret Coconut Passion is an almost, if not exact dupe. I'm so glad I found it.
This is my favorite fragrance of all time. I smell mostly a soft vanilla, but there is a coconut scent in there as well. Since both coconut and vanilla are my two favorite notes, this one is a winner. I hate bbw for discontinuing it.

Such an amazing vanilla scent. I have the lotion, the edt, the body wash, and it smells like heaven. I am pissed that they have D/C'd this. I even wrote an email to B&BW and they responded saying that the supplier could not keep up with demands... Well OK, someone DO something!! For christs sake, we live in the age of computers for phones! Can we not get someone to replicate this or take over the recipe?? They would make a fortune because this whole "Ile de Tahiti" line was EXTREMELY successful! Look at eBay! There are people (like me) who are paying $50 for a $14 bottle of perfume!!! Or a lotion! And $50 is if you get LUCKY!!! Someone, please do SOMETHING!! Oh, and about the fragrance itself, it is a nice vanilla base with almost an amber-y undertone- so warm and delicious!! Come back, Ile de Tahiti!!!!

I recently discovered this "Passport Tahiti" line and am extremely dissapointed that it's been discontinued. It's a warm, vanilla scent that is spectacular all year around. The coconut smell wasn't very strong but the vanilla is fab. LOVE this stuff.

I bought this online from BBW's website about...oh a year ago. I got this along with the tiare flower. I don't think it smells like tanning lotion, since that has a very strong coconut scent to it, it definitely smells more of a musk/floral tone to it from the tahitian vanilla. I like the way it blends together to form a great scent that lasts quite a long time. I generally use it for hot weather/travelling to other countries/summer season. It's a good price for what you're getting, the only downside i noticed is that the top of the spray kept coming off, other than that the product is great.

LOVE this product. Love the packaging and everything. This smells so good, and I use it after I come out of the shower using the body wash in this line. Love it! A very sweet smell, but not too much.

Smells musty and unpleasant. why anyone would want to smell like sun tan lotion is beyond me.

I love this fragrance! It's become one of my all-time favorites. When I heard this was a limited edition, I stocked up, but I hope they realize how many people love this line and decide to make it permanent!

ive been lemming for this since i read all the good reviews.
I LOVE this scent. when i first sprayed it, i thought, oohh,,,what was the hype about? it smelled too strong and sweet.. and then it dried down, and then i saw what everyone was talking about! On me, this is a very warm, sweet scent, but its light, not in your face sweet. It smells of Vanilla, just a hint of coconut. ive been sniffing my wrist for the past hour because its a very inviting scent. My hubby has not had the chance to smell it but i am pretty sure he will like it!
Probably only gripe is the lasting power--there is none! but oh well, i can keep spritzing..
WHY did BBW stop making this? :(

I love this scent, and am so disappointed this line was discontinued. I bought a bottle for $10 at the semi-annual sale in June, and also bought another bottle off e-bay because I loved it so much. My one complaint: The top of the bottle was very poorly designed. That little piece of plastic that holds the spray button onto the bottle is so flimsy, and mine falls off all the time. Other than that, it's great!

RIS - I was interested in this perfume as I'm a sucker for pretty names. Being that it comes from B&BW I didn't have the highest expectations but did hope that it would be a light comfortable inexpensive scent to wear at home as a daily pick me up while I do laundry blah blah.....I was so very very surprised to find that this leapt head and bounds beyond some of my other perfume faves and I wear it on a nearly daily basis....it never fails to get compliments and usually from men. Its light and not in the least overwhelming.....to me its perfect sweet and warm...more vanille (and another reviewer mentioned lilies), with a touch of coconut. I NEED backups....

I snagged this EDT for $10 at BBW's semi annual sale on a whim, and I'm really glad I did. I am normally wary of coconut scents, since many of them tend to smell like sunscreen. If I wanted to smell like sunscreen I'd just put on some sunscreen! However, this perfume really smells more like lillies and vanilla, with foody coconut. The lasting power could definitely be better, but for such a good price I'm not complaining. I really love the bottle, too- it's simple but lovely, and the blue color reminds me of a clear pool or the ocean. Overall, this perfume is a really nice and inexpensive scent for summer. I wish BBW hadn't discontinued the Ile de Tahiti line, because I really think these scents are classy and very upscale.

Love this scent combination, tropical, vanilla, coconut, sweet, creamy.
My only problem.......it does not last very long on my skin:( Why do my favorites not hang around???? LOL

This is fruitier and sweeter than I expected - but nice. It reminded me just a little bit of mark's Instant Vacation at first (which I didn't love) but the dry-down was softer and vanilla-y. Very nice for summer.

Very yummy scent! I have both the body wash and the EDT. I love this, wish it wasn't discontinued. Just lovely and tropical and summery!

OMG..I found this at bath and body semi annual sale at 50% off and I bought all three fragrances and I love them all. The fragrance is sophisticated and not too overwhelming and at $10 each its a great deal. Too bad they are discontinuing this line :-( I don't know why but it seemed like it was selling well?!
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium, Neutral Hair: Brunette, Straight, Fine Eyes: Brown
Yummmmmm. This is so nice, I can't stop smelling myself. I bought the edt and the lotion, and wearing them together is making it last very well. I think I smell more vanilla than coconut, but that is good because too much coconut can be overwhelming. I like the color of the bottles too!

What a pleasant surprise! I love BBW--don't get me wrong--for what it is: cheap, pleasant, fun, not necessarily sophisticated, but one doesn't always need sophistication...
BUT this stuff is totally grown-up and classy!
My tastes in perfume: heady, sweet, sexy, musky
My HG's: Dior Addict; Dior Hypnotic Poison, Bath & Body Works Coconut Vanille!
Its versatile--Sensual, playful, exotic, innocent....For something this awesome, I really think the price is dirt cheap.
My only b!tch about it--the cheapo, fake golden, "spray part" made of plastic, with an arbitrary string tied around it. It's always threatening to snap right off.

Got a sample vial of Coconut Vanille in a BBW order and tested it one night while trying to ignore the snow storm going on outside my window...this stuff is fabulous! The main notes are a soft coconut and a rich vanilla. To me, it also smells like an instant tropical vacation! Definitely planning to purchase a full bottle of this and save it for use during cold winter days to mentally transport myself to a summer day at the beach!!

This is a soft vanilla coconut fragrance. Has a powdery note too. I wish this fragrance was a little stronger and more long lasting. I really like the banana fei fragrance a little better than this one.

This is a charming arrangement of coconut, vanilla and floral. Personally, I would have thought it would be more expensive if I didn't know what it was and someone was wearing it. Someone mentioned CSP's Vanille Coco. This B&BW scent is Sooo much better than that! Vanille Coco made me think of a cheap air freshener - unbalanced, plastic, sickeningly sweet and in your face. Coconut Vanille makes me think of something fresh and clean (the floral notes and white musk), slightly delicious (the hint of vanilla) yet exotic and sexy (the non-obtrusive coconut). Sillage is good, too! Hey, if you try it and don't like it, at least it won't break your wallet, right? :-)
The only thing I would change is the design of the sprayer. No top is OK, but it does seem to be rather delicate and easy to break.
