    Two come to mind - Etat Libre d'Orange Bendelirious and Guerlain's La Petit Robe Noir. I just got LPRN and wore it last night - it's a cherry/rose overload!

    Not sure I know of a cherry/patchouli...sounds like that would be an interesting accord.

    Is LPRN easy to get hold of? I'm in the uk and haven't seen it any Guerlain counter.

    It will probably only be at the boutiques or the counters that carry the La Maison fragrances (Les Pariennes, L'Art et la Matieres, etc,) and not at the department stores that just have the 'standards'. It only came out in the last month or so. I actually got a bottle from Paris, which ended up coming out about $30USD cheaper than buying it in the US (even with shipping).

    I'm still not entirely convinced I made a good decision buying it - I've worn it a couple times from a decant, and it's...well... very loud and bordering on vulgar (like Insolence EDP), but fun. My main problem with LPRN is that it falls apart at the base where it could have just transitioned to Guerlinade and been fine. I compare it to Chypre Fatale with it's loud peachy topnotes that transitions well to patchouli and then oakmoss. The CF is better constructed.

    I get cherry patchouli in Bois 1920 Real Patchouly. I don't think there is any cherry note listed, but it does have either a phantom cherry note, or they simply did not put it in the list. Also, Parfum d'Empire Ambre Russe is more than just amber--it has lots of patchouli and fruity "whiskey" type notes which are somewhat evocative of cherry. But definitely, RP is much more recognizable as cherry patchouli.

    I have been meaning to try Idole Lubin to check if its booze note has a fruity quality, but haven't done it yet--may be worth looking into.

    Chopard Casran contains a cherry note among many others. It's soft, sweet and powdery, and smells a bit like chocolate covered cherries.

    I thought Le Petit Robe Noir smelled like cherry cough syrup. I also think Creed's Original Santal smells like a jar of maraschino cherries.

    Robe Noir seems to be becoming more widely available at more expensive places that carry Guerlain. Original Santal is available anywhere you can find Creed...

    LPRN sounds like a must try. Let me know if you decide to get rid of your bottle LOL.

    I agree with arwen_elf, Libertine, you need to try Louve by Serge Lutens. I usually don't like cherry notes but the one in Louve is outstanding. So perfectly tart and realistic. The problem for me, was the scent is very powdery (I avoid powdery scents) but if SL could isolate that cherry note and use it in another fragrance I'd buy it immediately. It's that good.

    Another scent with a weird bit of cherry, thrown into the middle of the marzipan, almond, cereal note mix is Luctor et Emergo by People of the Labyrinths. The parfum (which a kind Basenoter sent me a sample of) is very cherry prominent. Sample this one first. Many people say it smells too much like Play-Doh for them to enjoy wearing. I felt this way when I first smelled it, but I warmed to it more recently.

    I really want to smell Bendelirious by ELDO soon. It sounds like a barrel of laughs.

    Is Bendelerious new? I couldn't seem to find it in the directory. I'm definitely going to try Louve, it sounds like it has the cherry note that I'm looking for.

    Thanks for your help everyone.

    You mean like Maraschino cherries?
    or the fresh sour watery fruit itself?
    Cherry blossom, great in incense, is underused in fragrance.

    Samba Red for men seemed to have a light cherry quality to it, but I haven't worn it in a long time.

    Maraschino cherries, I like the synthetic quality of cherry rather than the sourness. I love the Body Shop Cherry Blossom though.

    Then you will probably like Louve. I love it! I don't know why I don't have a bottle of it yet.

    I get a lot of cherry in Ambre Nargile by Hermes -- the sweet dried cherry kind.

    Bendelirious has been around for a while, it's just never been updated in the directory here. I know it was for Henri Bendel, the only US authorized ELDO retailer, but it's also on ELDO's website and can be ordered from them directly. I don't know if it can be ordered from anywhere but Bendels and ELDO (I tend to doubt it).

    It's a fun fragrance - a sort of aldehydic cherry with a woody drydown. It's not very long lasting, but it's nice nonetheless.

    I forgot about Rahat Loukhoum by Serge Lutens. VERY sweet cherry note. Candied, syrupy, almost impossible to wear in warm weather. A SL scent you must try first. IMO, it's a love/hate scent. I couldn't stand it.

    Yea, I get something like that, sort of a dried fruit of some sort, and now that you mention it, it is either cherry or plum.

    And a childhood growing up with eating these things makes me not like Amber Narguile.

    OP should check it out, as I definitely perceive that note.

    It is quite new, came out last year I think. You can get a sample of it from Les Senteurs: http://shop.lessenteurs.com/
