    Default Fruity scents for summer evenings

    I am looking for a scent with fruity notes...which is suitable for summer evenings, not too light with a good sillage. I think even younger girls often like scents which have a fruity note...

    I like

    D&G pH: has a nice lemon note which is not too strong

    I don't like

    D&G masculine: I think the lemon is sometimes too much, it smells sometimes synthetic >
    L'eau par kenzo: with watermelon note, but I think its too light and has a bad sillage, better for daytime
    Givenchy Very Irresistable: Definately fruity but I don't like....

    Which scents for summer evenings do you like and which not...and why??

    Silver Black / Onyx by Azzaro.
    Definitely fruity, and i think it could work for summer evenings, though it's not a summer scent. Sillage is really decent, but it's nowhere in the league of A*men, Givenchy Pi, etc.

    I've not well understood if actually you're looking into a fruity scent or a citrusy (I wouldn't consider a citrus smell fruity...)
    However I'd like to suggest

    Dior Higher: fresh notes, basil, pear
    Hermes Jardin sur le nil: green mango and watery notes
    Diptyque Philosykos: Fig leaves and fruits with a cedarwood base
    Givenchy Eau torride: almost a watermelon juice
    Herrera Chic: just a watermelon touch on a tobaccoish base
    Paco Rabanne XS: fresh top with a watermelon touch on a woody base

    Mure et Musc and Pomegranate Noir are both great summer scents. They're not sweet and they're not citrusy, but they are fruity. There's something slightly dark about both of them too, which makes them very suitable for a summer evening.

    LpK's watermelon note? * :-? *I have to be honest, I dont smell watermelon here at all.

    Give Bazar by Christian Lacroix & Black XS a try if you want a sweet scent for Summer nights. *

    Oh also, maybe try Polo Black, which is fruity and, um, comes in a bottle that looks badass.






    (OMG I just found an instance in which to RECOMMEND Polo Black! I must get a prize for that!)

    Which scents for summer evenings do you like and which not...and why??
    EVEN younger girls? **Yeah, I would tend to agree. . . *

    I'll post the ones I like and, *since you asked, *I'll say why.
    Which not? *Naw, *that would take too much space.

    5 stars:

    1. Le Roy Soleil by Dali----------------------------Because it's great, *that's why. *See the reviews.
    2. Laguna, also by Dali----------------------------Not *quite as great imo, *but still rocks. *Again see the reviews.
    3. Nicole Miler for Men-----------------------------WOW!! * Good all year round, *btw.

    Dropping down to 4 and 4 1/2 stars:

    4. John Varvatos----------------------------------Because you'll get TONS of compliments.
    5. Rocabar by Hermes--------------------------- Not as many as JV, *but it's bettter made--or more expensive. *:
    6. Quasar by Jesus del Pozo---------------------Because it's a hoot!

    and honorable mention:

    Homme Nature by Yves Rocher-------------------Because it's cheap, *tres naturelle, *and fruit central
    Marc Jacobs for Men--------------------------------Because it smells like a well blended Pina Colada

    Have Fun!

    The new Guess Men isn't too bad, and you can get it cheaply at TJ Maxx. A great cheap summer scent!

    I love mango when it's teamed with vetiver or tomato leaves (those notes prevent the yucky "fruit cocktail" effect familiar from Escada summer stuff) so I would recommend L'Artisan Timbuktu and Annick Goutal Folavril.
