    Default Men's frag with vanilla and melon notes?

    Hi. *I'm looking for a men's fragrance with notes of vanilla (or tonka), plus melon (or mango). *What fits the bill?




    On a separate note, what fragrances have a note that you would describe as "silvery" vanilla?

    (silvery vanilla = Jaipur)

    (melon = Acqua di Gio)

    (silvery vanilla + melon = I don`t think so)

    Although I think it is more appropriate for a room freshener, Paris Hilton for Men has a very nice mango/melon fragrance.

    I didn't say silvery vanilla and melon, I just said melon and vanilla. The silvery vanilla question was separate from the question about vanilla and melon. Sorry if the post was confusing. I've modified my original post to make it clearer.

    Looks like Chanel's Allure Homme Eau Fraîchissante pour L'Été is what you're looking for.
    Powdery watermelon note added to the classic Allure scent -- primarily a summer fragrance.

    Thanks for the suggestions, I'll have to try those out! *Especially the Allure Homme one. Any other suggestions?

    Do try Kenneth Cole Reaction. It's a great frag w/ watermelon & green apple topnotes w/ prevail through the drydown. One of my favorite summer frags.

    Honestly, I can't stand Reaction... it smells like really cheap green apple juice.


    For a vanilla/tonka smell with a twist of citrus, I recommend L'Instant PH and Burberry Brit.

    I don't know if they have melon or mango notes in them but I would try Laguna by Salvador Dali and Desire (the red one) by Dunhill; both scents are very fruty-vanillic to me.

    For a silvery vanilla scent I'd go with Sculpture by Nikos.

    How much do you have to spend?

    Green mango is featured in Hermès Un Jardin sur le Nil, but it'll cost ya!

    Elegant, though, one of my favorites for spring.
