    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?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Since that time, my experience has multiplied endlessly. I will say that the fruity fragrance you are looking for is Bahiana by Maitre Parfumer et Gantier. It has great longevity for a fruity fragrance and you will immediately notice how fruity it is as soon as you spray it.

    What's the PDT? Isn't that an acronym only Guerlain uses? Either way I find that Mure et Musc Extreme has legendary longevity on my dry skin. In fact I am finding that most white musks last forever on me, that's not to say they have great sillage (which believe it or not Mure et Musc Extreme has in spades), they last through scrubbing and showers often.

    mate....I am glad you took my advice and bought this....

    This fragrance has one of the most powerful sillage of most perfumes that I've owned/tried. For most fragrances I usually spray 6-8 times however after knowing the potency of this one, I am happy with about 3-4 sprays....it lasts and projects all day...
