    Default suggestions for a modern, fruity evening scent

    Okay, well, I've pared my collection down pretty substantially (about 12 in regular rotation) and now realize that I haven't really explored the category of fruity fragrances. Acaciosa (Caron) and Pour un Femme (Caron) are the fruitiest frags that I own and I'm not sure most folks would classify them in that category.

    I'd like to know what you all would suggest for a fruit-predominant evening type scent - something you'd wear on a date. Usually fruity scents are light and fresh, but I prefer my light and fresh scents to be green / woodsy / vetiver based so this is a bit of a challenge.

    Femme does not work with my chemistry. I do wear Mitsouko, but I'm looking for something livelier and more modern, fun and tantalizing. Preferably not too sweet, and not too tart, but I can compromise a bit on that.

    I'm testing Cartier Delices right now and, to my surprise, actually like it, despite the sweetness. I look forward to any suggestions. Thank you in advance!

    What? I need to wait until 2008 to try the black xs for women? Drat. Is anyone in France (or who has travelled to France) able to tell me about it?

    Hmmm ...... Versace.... I'm definitely treading into new (for me) territory... although I thought the Crystal Noir was nice (I purchased the shower gel and it got stolen out of my car); I'll check into it - thank you!

    As for a fruity night out hmmmm......I would definitely give Alien a look see. Delices de Cartier, Magnetism/Magnetic Beat, Lolita Lempicka, Incanto Charms, and Elixir des Mervielles.


    And Honey......I haven't ran into a man yet who didn't love Alien. I use to wear 'X' as my date perfume, but Alien moved that right on out the way. I wear my Alien with a light layer of Aveda Patchouli under it. I have my ownself saying.....Damn I smells gooooooooood!!! LOL!

    Try Pomegranate Noir by Jo Malone, It is very distinctive, and has decent longevity.

    Yeah for Jillsy!!!! You are absolutely Divalicious Honey with that Alien and Patchouli!!

    I'm not sure if the Charms is limited or not. It's been out for a while, maybe a year or 2. They introduced Incanto Shine this year I think. So, I think the Incanto's may be around. I hope so I love Charms.

    Let me tell you what I concocted yesterday!! Aveda Patchouli does it once again. I'm giving my DKNY Delicious Night it's 3 day run like I do all my new frags. Well, the 1st couple of days I wore it. I didn't really get a response except for the usual you always smell good. Well, today I decided to mix a little Aveda Patchouli with the Delicious Night and my coworkers have been asking me what I have on today. I even had a patient tell me how good I smell. One of my fav docs came in. Me and her talk about perfume all the time. When she came up to me she just closed her eyes and said OMG you smell good. She tells everyone in the nurse's station that I always have the latest and best smelling perfume. Needless to say that I helped some folks out with their Xmas list today LOL! I didn't tell them about the patchouli though.....sniggle.

    YSL Paris Roses des Bois is very nice with roses & blackberries. Perfumebay was carrying it, I don't know who else, it was a limited edition. I've been considering Quel Amour! by Annick Goutal.. Another one I really like is Rose d'Ete by Parfums de Rosine - yellow roses and melon. None of those are green and woodsy, though. Cartier's Panthere eau Legere has grapefruit with a beautiful woodsy drydown, but I'm not sure that's an evening scent. I don't normally think of a green fragrance as being "date night out" type perfume unless it's an outdoors event like a BBQ. Maybe Chanel No19? Not too fruity, though.

    Oh, oh, how about YSL Paris Roses des Vergers? Light, green and fruity with roses & orchard flowers. I have that one. It's also limited, but still available online. Don't get much woods out of it.

    Repeat recommendations for Bois de Paradis and Pomegranate Noir, plus Roudnitska's Le Parfum de Therese from Frederic Malle.

    I second Le Parfum de Therese, and suggest Fifi Chachnil...not sure if it;s listed in the notes, but I get a melon impression along with the amber, tobacco and vanilla, which gives it a range that prevents it from being cloying.
    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

    What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache

    Apparition by Ungaro: raspberry with a woodsy/patchouli base. Not as heavy as Patou For Ever, so it may come across as more modern and date-friendly.

    I guess it's not really in the fruity subgroup,but to me the original Poison is very fruity.It smells first a bit incency and a bit spicy, then develops into blackberries and honey.Love the drydown of it And defenitely an evening scent too.

    Must try the Aveda patchouli touch. Mixed with Coco Mademoiselle it would be great too. I don't have Alien, but I'm thinking I might get a bottle of that. Think I'll wait for Jan sales...
