    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.

    WOW! Those are very expensive! I think I refer the mass market/easy to find/brand name/affordable price stuff more. But any way, thanx guys so much for your suggestions.

    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.

    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.
