    Default Are there any perfumes based on almonds?

    I am addicted to the smell of almonds. Are there any good perfumes out there that
    have this nutty note in them (however subtle)? Preferably with a touch of honey as well.

    All have almond notes in their top notes, and the almond notes are all very short-lived. Almond is one of the shortest-lived notes of all.

    Thanks for the latest suggestions!
    It sounds like Burberry Brit is the one for me to
    go for, although I love Angel(theLily) so I may give
    Innocence a try.

    All I can add to the scents that have already been listed here is Gloria by Cacherel, Serge Loutens Rahat Loukhoum, Acqua di Parma Mandorlo di Sicilia, Yves St. Lauren Cinema, Provance Sante Sweet Almond, Toni Gard, Perlier White Almond, Langiappe Oaks Lady Evangeline, L'Amande Almond Milk and Honey water, Paul & Joe Blanc BUT what I think you really really want is Mazzolari Alessandro ~ the most divine almond with a touch of honey fragrance ever created. I've only seen it sold here: http://www.ausliebezumduft.de/kosmet...roducts_id=836

    This one is so amazing. Simple and quite subtle, but far from boring.

    DK Men
    has a very unique almond scent. It's that of Marzipan, which is a delicious confectionary made from bitter almonds, and sugar.
    What's even more unique is the addition of cherries expertly mixed with those almonds which gives DK Men its distinctive aroma.

    Here is some Marzipan eye-candy for you (yes, all of those are candies): http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...panfrüchte.jpg

    And here is a link to give you more info on DK Men's scent pyramid: *http://www.basenotes.net/ID26120459.html

    Do you know that you can search for fragrances by name, perfume house or notes in the directory?
    As for personal preferances, I would recommend Hypnotic Poison

    Hypnotic Poison is a good one - bitter almonds, vanilla, a bit of musk.
    Farnesiana by Caron - almonds, marzipan, a slight play-doh smell (pleasant).
