There is a particular note that I find in certain fragrances...it's not peach, like the fruit, nor is it apricot, perse...it has that tinge of bitterness to it, more like the PIT of a peach or an apricot....I think it is very strong in Mitsouko, definitely there in L'Heure Bleu, and also in Serge Lutens Daim Blond.
What is this called, oh golden noses? Thanks for sharing your knowledge!

Not sure it's the same in each case. The peachy-ness of Mitsouko -- but you're right, it's not exactly peach -- comes largely from undecalactone. Daim Blond may be different -- I've read that the fruity note is meant to represent Osmanthus, which is a milky floral scent. My nose reads it as "dried peach" or "dried apricot" rather than "peach pit"...
