    Default Fruity fragrances in search of

    Ok i am looking for a real fruity fragrance here is what I tried:

    Pulp by Byredo - too loud in your face not sure if i can wear this

    Paco Black XS - love it, but longevity stinks on me

    Chic by Herrera - I am on the fence on this one I smelled some watermelon but was very subtle might need to resample

    Diesel for Life - I tried several times - I know people say women love it, but I could not stand it something about it made me sick

    Escada Sunset Heat - longevity horrible on me

    Kenneth Cole Reaction - horrible longevity

    Serge Lutens Bois Et Fruits - I got no fruits...but mostly woods

    Daim Blond - some apricot but no sillage at all

    Creed MI - I love it...but longevity does not last on me


    It sems fruity fragrances do not last long for some reason not sure why

    So far the only one that lasts on me forever and I do like is Byredo Pulp...but the sillage is monster I can clear out a room


    Any other suggestions I am missing?

    I may have detractors saying this, but I get a terrific fruity accord from Ungaro II.

    Lacoste Red (Style in Play). A lovely fruity, sweet scent. Perfect for summer or casual wear.

    Davidoff Cool Water Game. Watermelon, grapefruit, blackcurrant. A nice, fresh, fruity one here too.

    Yes it is, but it can still be found for around $50 for a 75ml bottle. Terrific frag.

    No joke, this stuff is really good, for such an unheard of scent. Definitely seek it out.

    I know what you mean about Pulp being a huge, monster of a fruit scent. Hee hee...it's what I call an aggressive fruity fragrance.

    Try Bahiana by MPG - I think it's what you're looking for.

    Fruity smells are often times low molecular weight, highly volatile esters and as such one cannot expect tremendous longevity. I don't know why people are all hung up on longevity and then pass over many fragrances that they really enjoy because of "poor longevity." It is easy enough to carry a small decant and refresh the fragrance as needed.

    Chane allure edition blanche. Much more fruity than its predecessors, you get a real lime smell throughout mixed with that famous allure tonka bean. Definetly try this one out. Also, you may like joop thrill, the newest joop scent. very vanilla, apple type scent. lovely.

    If you're concerned about longevity and silliage, you want Dunhill Desire (Red).

    Another suggestion carrying the JOOP! name then:What about Adam.

    Another rarely discussed item is Versace Metal Jeans (also discontinued).
    http://www.basenotes.net/ID26121089/reviews.html

    A favourite of mine is Trussardi Jeans Men.

    Bois Fruite by Montale is a longer lasting and more natural smelling Millesime Imperial

    I second Bahiana by MPG.

    Also, try Versace Man Eau Fraiche or D&G Light Blue (marketed for women, but it smells unisex), and also Soleil de Capri.

    Almost the entire male range of J del Pozo, including Quasar and its flankers as well as On El. Versace Blue Jeans might also work.

    Everytime someone asks for a recommendation on fruity fragrances, I suggest Lancetti via Condotti pour homme.
    This is by far the best fruity fragrance (peachy) I have tested. The sillage is unbelievable for a summer fragrance. It lasts more than 24 hours.

    Give this one a shot and believe me you won't regret it.

    Yes to this.

    But what I think what you're looking for would be L'Anarchiste. If you think women love Diesel, wait till they get a whiff of this stuff. Long lasting incredibly fruity fragrance. There's nothing about it that anyone could dislike. I would liken its soft, sweet fruity qualities to flavored pipe tobacco, before it's been smoked of course.

    Fruity they are, and good, but don't know about the sillage...

    Default Re: Fruity fragrances in search of

    Xeryus Rouge/Givenchy: Spicy fruit, very good longevity and sillage

    Dalimix/Salvador Dali: Marketed as unisex, musky fruitiness. My gf and I share a bottle and we experience very good longevity and sillage.

    I've been testing Bois Fruite and its longevity is no better or worse than MI, and while they smell similar Bois Fruite is not a clone of MI as it has been suggested on other threads.

    In terms of longevity, I'm afraid there are not many options available. The most potent one I've tried is Pulp but, while the rich opening is amazing, the drydown is truly awful (although it does calm down by this point).

    Mike's recommendation of Bahiana is probably your best bet. Unfortunately, I find its lasting power to be so-so.
