    Default Strawberry in men`s fragrances

    Do you know any male scents which contains a strawberry note, or something that just happens to smell like strawberry..?
    In your opinion, is it even necessary to have a strawberry notes/accords in men`s fragrances?
    Does it have to be completely a feminine pleasure only? (not that I know many female scents having this strawberry thing going on, either)

    Thinking about this, imo the most strawberry-ish male scent is probably Hanae Mori EdP. This scent is not one of my biggest favourites (at least at the moment), and so personally I would like to see a fine, delicious take on strawberry; Pour Homme!

    What a very interesting topic!!! I however have trouble picturing certain things as a cologne, and strawberry is one. Most foods, like apple, or banana. I can see where MI smells like watermelon after an hour or so.

    The only fragrance that springs to mind to me as having any kind of strawberry going on is L'Artisan D'Humeur A Rire (one of the mood swings set). I was so intrigued by it after I read some comments here by, I think, Col that I bought a decant from a fellow member here. Not really give it a full try yet but on small spray on arm it reminds me of strawberry bubble gum.
    Here's Col's post from a while back:

    I would second Black XS. I know it doesn't officially have a strawberry note, but it smells just like strawberry jam to me!

    Strawberry is the top note in Fresh's Cannabis Santal.

    Something in Gucci PH reminds me of one of the facets of a strawberry's scent profile.

    Thanks guys.

    I was once told that Rochas Man smells like strawberrys and bananas, but I`m quite sure that many of us don`t necessarily agree with that opinion...

    I have never smelled true strawberries in a mens scent before just like i have never smelled a true rose scent in a mens scent before. For a true blue strawberry i wear the new Christian Dior Miss Dior Cherie. To me it isnt feminine nor is it masculine. It just smells like strawberries.

    But it's definitely in there. Notes according to Sephora are:

    "Wild Strawberries, Kumquat, Dark Plum, Patchouli, Magnolia, Rose, Chocolate, Vetiver, Vanilla Musk."

    I smelled the strawberry strongly when I tested it.

    A good 'strawberry' for any man interested in that scent is TBS (the Body Shop) Strawberry perfume oil. I find this a warm and musky take on strawberry - not high pitched like many 'pure' strawberry scents out there.

    It is very cheap, a little goes a long way, and it is great for mixing it up and adding an extra dimension to other scents when layered with them.

    I recommend guys to get a bottle and layer it with your fruity or gourmand colognes.

    I imagine it going well with Aqua di Gio, Body Kouros, Caron pour un homme, Dunhill Desire for a Man among other men's perfumes.
