    Default Unisex or Masculine Peaches and Apricots

    Does anyone know of unisex or masculine fragrances with notes of peaches and/or apricots? The only one I've ever heard of is Mitsouko by Guerlain. Thanks

    You can try Peau de Peche by Keiko Meicheri. Sophisticated, peachy - not at all screechy- as good on a man as on a woman.

    Une Fleur De Cassie has an apricot note. I don't get the negative reviews, on me it starts as a kind of bizarre mosquito coil smell, but after about 30mins become a very pleasant, quiet, kind of sweet powdery stewed fruit (apricot) scent. It's not overly masculine but would not strike me as feminine either. Slightly sickly in hot weather.

    The best peachy scent ever made is 'Lancetti via Condotti pour homme'.
    This could be the best kept secret that I want to share.

    Daim Blond (Serge Lutens) is a beautiful mix of peach and suede, easily unisex.

    Not sure about apricots but Nahema (the current extrait) is more peaches than roses to my nose. And since I like it it's unisex - for me.

    Dior's Dolce Vita has both apricot and peach as middle notes (see the directory). Easily unisex, but on the sweet side.

    ARARAT, appropriately named by Parfumerie Naturelle

    excellent fresh unisex citrus/apricot/white musk scent.
    Sort of like a softer, more femme MI replacing Watermelon with Apricot.

    for those who don't wish to smell too peachy/apricot-ish....2 frags which feature the peach aldehyde in their drydowns in small amounts are Guerlain's Vetiver Sport and Creed's Green Valley.

    This one i like a lot and yes it's Very Sweet as you stated.

    what about yardley's melon & peach and CKOne summer 2006, the latter being the more "unisex" kind, the others not so much...

    There's also a bunch of peach in Ricci Club but it's buried under a heavy layer of spices and top notes.

    Almost the same thing happens with lagerfeld's Woody, which ha speach but you'd barely detect it under all that Cedar.

    Another nice peach is found in Bois des Iles by Chanel, again, the peach taking a back stage to the other notes.

    Daim Blonde has apricot.

    D&G The One (femme) has a lot of peaches as does Guerlain Chypre Fatal.

    Masculinty is in the nose of the beholder and of the marketing campaign.

    Try Daim Blond, but you must like the smell of leather/suede also. This is also pretty sweet too.

    I just wear Mitsouko parfum.

    The BN pyramid does not list the peach, so this list is taken from another site:

    top: coconut, peach and orange
    middle: sandalwood, musk and orris
    base: basil, lavender and cedar

    Daim Blond has an intense peach note, but unfortunately its too sweet for me.

    Royal Water is a herbal citrus with an impression of a peach note in the top, and some good notes of basil and a bit of cumin in the base.

    Mitsouko EDP/Parfum started it all with a peach top over a mossy chypre base...the moss is more prominent in the parfum and hence more unisex.

    Aventus replaced peach with pineapple/apples in the top notes with a birch-patchouli accord and a moss and ambergris base, is very unisex and toned down in intensity - currently for ease of wear for men, fruity-chypres dont get better than this.

    Masculine and peach are a tricky combo. I tried Lancetti via Condotti and found it quite feminine myself. I would stick with Burberry for Men. A slight peach note, but still quite masculine.
