Today I blind picked a new sample out of the envelope and based on the note pyramid guessed it was Malay Alkan, clone of Millesime Imperial. Turns out I was wrong and it was the Buko, the Virgin Island Water clone instead. The two have that same marine/island theme and this was much less coconutty than expected so that's the biggest thing that tripped me up, I thought it would be a telltale sign. Ironically the Byredo Bal d'Afrique clone is the real coconut bomb. I do smell the coconut now but it's much subtler so I ascribed it to the "fruity notes" listed on Millesime

This Virgin Island Water clone is good just not in the way that I expected. A nectary take on Piña colada
