    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.

    5. Rocabar by Hermes--------------------------- Not as many as JV, *but it's bettter made--or more expensive. *:

    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.

    I rather like Eau de Cartier for summer evenings: yuzu top notes with amber basenotes. It's lovely.

    I haven't tried it for a summer evening yet, but I think Pomegranate Noir might be suitable as long as the humidity is low enough: raspberry, plum, and of course, pomegranate combined with patchouli.

    There was Villoresi scent called Tropicali or Tropicana that was pretty fruity. But that's out of production.

    While Black XS is a pretty safe bet, it seems a bit heavy and powdery for high temperatures.

    I say go with that or KC Reaction. They're both pretty cheap, unlike a lot of the high-end frags suggested. And younger girls like the Reaction. Fruity and light.

    A few recommendations:

    Millésime Impérial by Creed
    l'Eau de l'Artisan by l'Artisan Parfumeur
    Vettiveru by Comme des Garçons
    Premier Figueur by l'Artisan Parfumeur


    but the best of the best remains Philosykos by Diptyque, it doesn't just smell like sitting under a fig tree somewhere in South Italy, it really takes you there!

    Is it too late for me to add Live Jazz?

    I just received this yesterday - actually as the result of a mix-up - I ordered Jazz and they sent me the 'Live' version by mistake. I'd tried it on my hand before and not really liked it. I tried it again yesterday on the neck and loved it!

    The combination of mint (not a fruit I know!), lemon and rhubarb works really well in warmer weather (I was out in the evening mowing the lawn in the sunshine and it worked so well in that context). It also smells 'Creed-like' in some way, whether that's the ambergris, the general sourness I associate with a lot of their fragrances or something else I don't know.
