    Default Fragrance with dominant melon note

    Hi guys, do you know which fragrance that has very dominant melon note, very fruity (fresh sweet). If you've smelled ck one summer 2006, you'll know what I'm talking about. However, the melon top note in ck one summer 2006 fades so quickly . I want a fragrance that has the melon note just lingers there and has more interesting drydown. Help!

    Hermes Un Jardin Apres La Mousson is great melon and cucumber, with pepper added over the top to keep it from being too "girly."

    It's kind of expensive in stores, but you can find it pretty cheap online.

    I really like it.

    This one at Luckyscent is listed under the "Men" section so I guess it's at least unisex. Sounds great but, as always, sample first.

    Do not go for Unbound Men by Halston. It has a dominant melon note, but the resulting fragrance smells cheap and my girlfriend remarked it smelled reminiscent of Clinique Happy for Women. The amount of positive reviews on Basenotes belies its attractiveness.

    Perhaps Malle's "Outrageous" would work,

    Also L'Artisan's new Fleur De Liane

    Both are Melon'ish and quite nice. Easy to wear for men or women.

    I have a sample of Diorella, but I don't like it much. Isn't it supposed to have a melon accord?
    I also thought that Un parfum de Therese did too.
    Please let me know if I remember wrong.

    Or perhaps Sean John Unforgivable, given that it's nearly the same thing to the undiscerning nose. And loads cheaper.

    i remember Carolina Herrera's Chic for men having a melon note, much nicer than many other designer efforts in this vein.

    it has a sort of melon/pear/cucumber sweet freshness with a cardamom/spice hint which kept my interest.

    also should be easily available and very accessibly priced. hope this helps!

    I seem to remember smelling melon in Beyond Paradise for men. Of course, I didn't particularly enjoy the experience.

    There is dominant melon note. IMO

    Lightbulb Re: Fragrance with dominant melon note

    Cool Water Game (which has no similarities with actual Cool Water). It opens fruity, and is much more natural and melon smelling than KC Reaction). Unfortunately the base is very distinctly patchoulli with only a hint of the fruity top notes. I definitely recommend that you give it a try though.

    CK Euphoria Men Intense has melon in the top notes, not watermelon, but somewhere between honeydew and cantaloupe, at least to my nose. It doesn't persist though, but I find the drydown absolutely amazing as well. The first time I sampled it, on a card, I walked around for hours, smelling the drydown, turning to my girlfriend, and saying, "This smells so good!" Then we went back and bought the bottle. It's definitely worth a try.

    I just tried Reflection for Women by Amouage and it had such a dominant mixed melon note that I felt like a fruit basket for hours. Obviously melon isn't high on my list when it comes to scent, so I'm particularly sensitive to it.

    Double Black has a green mango note, very synthetic, so it could be mistaken as a melon note.

    Mass market melon? Why not Aqua di Gio? Everybody else does.

    HI, unless I missed it, no one has mentioned Emontionelle by Delrae. It's Delrae's newest one that is available. It's supposed to be melon-like. I tried a sample of it and I love it. To me I get the idea of ripen fruit, melon and whatever other fruit is in there. It's expensive, but worth trying. I've heard of Diorella that is supposed to be similar to"ripened fruit". Maybe that is what Emontionelle is like, but I haven't tried Diorella, just heard about it. Emontionelle is sweet, although not overly sweet.

    Crystal Auod from Montale has a nice melon note, not sure if you want to spend that much or not.

    I will second Regis Philbin's recommendation of Kenneth Cole Reaction's melon accord. I don't really dig that in fragrance, so I traded her.

    Someone mentioned Polo Double Black, I really don't think there's much melon in there at all. PDB is what I would describe as a rich, warm, boozy gourmand coffee scent. Extremely wearable and a getter of compliments --- but melon.....me no theenk zo...

    CK Eternity Summer 2008 is a good summer scent thats freshness is owed to a nice use of melon, IMO, instead of the usual citrus. Being a fan of citrus frags, I initially thought I would be disappointed, but in fact, I think it smells great!!!

    Sweety,
    Caron makes one of the most gorgeous melon scents in the world and it is unisex.

    Royal bain de Caron, not too expensive either.

    here is a link so you can check prices;
    http://shop.ebay.com/items/__bain-de...2el1313?_rdc=1

    It used to be called Royal bain de Champagne, but due to pressure from the Champagne region it was changed.

    If you would like to try a sample pm me
