    Default Fruity (non citrus) male fragrances?

    Do you know of any fresh fruity fragrances out there which is not citrus based? Anything with pear, apple, cherry? I would prefer if it was something a little more exclusive and not cheap synthetic smelling.

    I like Black XS for fruitiness. Quite blackcurranty and not at all citrus based. However, it might be a bit mainstream for what you're after.

    You should be looking at

    Lancetti via Condotti pour homme

    It has loads of peach in it and easily has 12 hours + longevity with SUPER sillage.

    DKNY Red Delicious Men smells like apples.

    Hell, the bottle is in the shape of an apple.

    BUT, longevity and sillage are low.

    Certainly not fresh, but meets your other requirements:

    Pomegranate Noir by Jo Malone.

    Creed Silver Mountain Water is full of blackcurrant, and certainly does not smell "cheap." Consider also:

    Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir (fruit with incense, leather, and wood)
    Bond No. 9 Riverside Drive (pineapple/aquatic)
    L'Artisan Parfumeur Ananas Fizz (also pineapple)
    L'Artisan Parfumeur Mure et Musc (blackberry)
    DelRae Bois de Paradis (blackberry with a lot of woods)
    Fresh Sugar Lychee (lychee)
    Frederic Malle Outrageous! (apple pie)
    Serge Lutens Daim Blond (apricot with light leather)
    Santa Maria Novella Melograno (pomegranate and ALDEHYDES)

    Joop! Nightflight has a fair bit of pineapple goin on.
    And Joop! Jump smells fruity to me, alot of coconut too.

    Anthony, Nightflight is very citrus-based

    Try Outrageous, by Frederic Malles, if sky = limit
    I'm going to second Pomegranate Noir; the raspberry/plum + cedar drydown is sublime. It projects like no other; longevity and sillage are through the roof.
    Paradise for Men, by Alfred Sung, has a very nice papaya/light grapefruit note to it. It doesn't feel citrusy at all, but I've heard the longevity is terrible.
    Gathering Apples, by CB I hate Perfumes; it's water-based, though, so the longevity might be a little bad if your skin doesn't hold water/oils very well.

    I'd have to say Michael Storer- Kadota from my limited collection.

    I was running out the door earlier and hurried my post, but you should definitely try Kadota. It is truly a defining fragrance for Michael Storer.

    I totally agree with CK be. Lots of peach & juniper & musk. I also suggest Clean Men, it has an awesome raspberry note.

    I find ESCADA SENTIMENT has luscious juicy berry accords. Mixed with the gin juniper note, you've got food and drinks for everyone!

    All that Vibert and MikePerez have mentioned, plus Silver Mountain Water by Creed -- that one's all about blackcurrants. Btw, I have to second one that MikePerez mentioned: Carlos Santana. Imagine spicy apples mixed with musk -- YUM!
