It's a gorgeous note but also one that just totally makes love to my skin.
I wish I got coconut from Hell's Belle but, alas, none. Is there actually any in there or just a coconut sort of "vibe"?
 Bizarre that Snow White doesn't have any actual coconut in it..something in there smells IDENTICAL to coconut and dries down on my skin the same way as the regular coconut does.

6 scents isn't much. Especially with 3 of them being LE's. MORE COCONUT! I never used to really care for coconut because of the suntan oil association but BPAL's is just so different and lovely. Oh how I crave it..

However, a friend of mine put on Black Pearl and said she just drowned in the florals, so it comes down to (drum roll please) individual body chemistry!

Can anyone recommend anything similar but with more coconut???
No florals, or overly musky scents. I like warm, sweet, fruity and foody scents.
Thanks so much!!!!

Red Lantern is also a good choice, if you can manage to get some. Though on me it was more caramel and spice at first, and the coconut kicked in later.

Blood Pearl: was very similar to Black Pearl on me, except the coconut was stronger and ...rounder , for lack of a better word
Tarot: the Star: lovely tropical coconut/lime with a mint top note, very fruity
Elegba: this is an agressive, boozy coconut - it smells like a pirate! :P
Spooky - if you can find it, is supposed to be chocolate, coconut and mint (I think!)
Snow White is coconutty on some people (definitely not on me though!)
Snake Charmer has black coconut but I can't smell it at all...
Eden: does have coconut, but on me it's almost exclusively honeyed fig leaf. YMMV on this one, obviously!
Hope this helps!

You might want to try Santo Domingo, too. Somehow it has the spirit of coconut but I don't think it actually has coconut in it. It is beautiful as well.
Grog is buttery, rummy, coconutty goodness. Lasts for hours and is a beauty. Mmmm. me loves me teh grog.
Perversion has a good shot of coconut in it and is a real winner. It is pretty close to Formula 54 and is great in the winter (for some reason).

Finny you took the words right outta my mouth!!!
Red Lantern is the best if you can get your hands on a bottle of it!!!!
Keep checking the swaps/for sales thread...there is bound to be someone who
wants to give their Red Lantern to a better home :P

Smelling like all coconut, all the time should help keep my mind on topic. :P
So what's the coconuttest scent there is?
