    Default Suggestions on Walnut based fragrance to try!?

    Hi everyone, I was eating breakfast in the morning and I usually like to have some walnuts with Philadelphia cheese and bread. As I was biting into the walnuts it gave me an idea to try a walnut based fragrance. usually I wouldn't even bother due to the dry taste but this time I was having premium American walnuts!!! which had a nice oilyness to them which I could see as being quite nice if mixed in nicely in integral proportions with other ingredients.

    Any suggestions of walnutty notes??? I have yet to come across any such fragrance,

    Banana Republic has a scent called Black Walnut, though to me it smells like a tobacco fragrance; that could be the nature of walnut though.

    I remember reading that Bulgari's Red Tea has a walnut note in the drydown.

    Red Tea is .... weird. It has a very disturbing note that reminds me of Vetiver Dance. I don't know about walnut in the drydown. I scrubbed it off before I got there.

    A scent with a realistic walnut accord would be awesome - sadly, I've never encountered one (the Banana Republic does NOT smell like black walnut!)

    A few scents give off a nutty accord, to my nose - some vetivers (Sycomore by Chanel) and oddly some rubber/leathers (Cumming by Alan Cumming)...but the effect is very subdued and mixed with a lot of other accords. Bois Farine gives off a peanut vibe (peanut butter) while the new Hermes Eau de Gentaine Blanche has a raw peanut accord, that lasts for a few seconds, in the top notes.

    But walnut? I haven't smelled anything yet...

    Serge Lutens Daim Blond smells like salted cashews to me...at least in the top and mid notes.

    thanks for the suggestions I will keep them in mind. Shame there isn't a thorough walnut fragrance as it would be lovely.
