Tahitian Waters Fragrance Reviews


I own every English Laundry fragrance. I'm 50/50 on this house. The scents are either really unique and special (Signature) or just old fragrances brought back into EDP concentrations (Knotting Hill). All of their juices are strong, long lasting and project without offending.

Here is my impression about Tahitian Waters. Upon first spray things look really positive. Fresh, vibrant, musky, not too sweet, not too fruity or tropical--unique and just really nice smelling. But, just a minute after it hits the skin it starts developing into something else. What many people are saying is a burnt, synthetically cheap or smoky note is actually a cumin note coming out and combining with brown sugar. Unfortunately, it is the body odor type cumin and it mixes with the strong brown sugar and coconut shell accords to create something that just smells off. Not fresh like you would except from the product name.

There is no pineapple or fresh coconut in this, so the guys that sensed Creed Aventis and Creed VIW needs to get off the crack. The fragrance is not in the same realm scent wise.

The coconut is rather a nutty, creamy coconut, like smelling the shell itself. Not like suntan lotion.

While the fragrance never gets too sweet, it is rather burnt brown sugar or caramel.

There is very little citrus that hangs around and just a bit of white and pink floral. That is about as 'tropical' as you get with this.

All in all, the result is a slightly middle eastern smelling musk that leans on the sweet nutty side.

Just too weird for me. if not for the damn cumin note (not listed which baffles my mind) this could be great.


Blind bought this. Extremely synthetic opening, no projection at all and so close to the skin I can barely smell it, slightly powdery dry down, slight hint of coconut, cheap and nasty. Baffling comparison to Aventus..

@OCNBreeze7 (and anyone else who, like myself, is very interested in something along the lines of Virgin Island Water...for a fraction of the price):

TAHITIAN WATERS EDP is still available on the English Laundry website (englishlaundryfragrance "dot-com") for the following prices; at least for the time being!

100 ml eau de parfum = $85 US
50 ml eau de parfum = $70 US
20 ml EDP travel sp = $32 US

Smell swell & Be well...


Reminisce about Summer…

For two consecutive days, I have chosen fragrances by English Laundry – yesterday, it was Arrogant and today, Tahitian Waters… This line is very underrated in the fragrance industry and Tahitian Waters is a Summer gem…

TW is an EDP that is a beautiful composition of floral, fruity, and woodsy notes with a coconut finish. The end result is an extraordinary fragrance that leaves the user breathing in the air around them most of the day. There is much discussion and comparison to Creed’s Virgin Island Water, and yes there is a bit of shared DNA, but each has its own identity and both are great fragrances. Creed is my favorite fragrance line and in a class all by itself, but I will add that English Laundry (and Tahitian Waters) deserve credit and offer a great alternative.

Given TW is an EDP, I got rock-star performance today, lasting 8+ hours on me, even longer on clothing, all at greater than arm’s length distance projection/sillage. While geared more for Spring and Summer wear, TW can easily be worn (occasionally) to remind the user of the past Summer or a time spent in the South Pacific relaxing in a hammock under the shade of palm trees, and sipping on a sun downer. In my opinion, TW is best suited for day wear and for more casual outdoorsy events – I did modestly apply TW this morning prior to going into an office environment – it worked well, but be “easy on the trigger”… Presentation of any English Laundry Fragrance is first class and matched by few designer fragrances. Finally, TW has been discontinued, and thus, a little more challenging to find. As a result, the price is going up. – sometimes, I get frustrated with the laws of supply and demand..!!

All said, my final tally of Tahitian Waters is 4.5 stars out of 5 stars. If you can find it, this fragrance is definitely worth adding to your collection. Whether you use it as a go-to Summer fragrance, or to reminisce about a favorite memory, you will not be disappointed adding TW to your collection. Enjoy your day and happy fragrance hunting…


Not for me. Bought it on Amazon. Wore it once. Was hoping it would be a less expensive alternative to Creed Virgin Island Water. Not even close...just smells kind of cheap.


Smells like stale cigarette ash on me. Nasty! Lime and coconut with stale cigarettes. Must be a chemical thing: Try before buying the whole bottle.


Very Good Scent. Very unique along the lines of Creed Aventus. Not saying its on that level but in uniqueness, its very good. Some of English Laundry's fragrances are a true bargain on the Market. One thing i noticed is that this is listed as a women's perfume on this site when it is listed at dillards men's department.
It's a powdery fragrance. I ended up buying a set. I also like Riviera by the same manufacture. A surprise find.


SHOCKING!!! For a moment I thought I was layering from the house of CREED Aventus with Virging Island Water.. Great scent... Starts off very smokey with a tropical twist of Pinnapples,lime and coconuts..Gorgeous and well made.. Looks like this one will be making my collection... GIVE IT A SHOT!!!!!
