    Default Frags with the following scent profile?

    I'm looking for masculine or unisex scents with the following general scent profile: A pink note like peach or pink grapefruit or jasmine or anything remotely pink; a suede-like note; and a vanilla or tonka-like note. Any scents anything like that?

    OMG I remember a Bond that smelled like that but drawing a blank on the name...

    Smelled like peaches, had a bit of vanilla, and something earthy.

    Actually might not have been a Bond, but Sak's definitely carries it! Sorry for the lack of help.

    You might try Burberry for Men (1995), which has a fairly persistent peach note and a tonka drydown. No suede, though. For that, you would have to go for something like Dior Homme, but there's no peach in it. Or maybe Serge Lutens Daim Blonde? Again, I don't know about the peach.

    Everlast Original 1910 has grapefruit and leather, which is not as "rough" as some other leathers I've tried and is close to suede, IMO. There is also strong tonka, so it sounds like the one for you, though there are other clearly articulated notes, and it's nicely balanced among them.

    There's Profumum Dulcis in Fundo which starts out kind of apricot/orange and then mexican vanilla takes over. It's very rich & enveloping.
    Serge Lutens Daim Blond is apricot "suede" leather. Impossible to describe. I wouldn't say it has a tonka or vanilla aspect though.

    Maybe Paco Energy- the pink grapefruit note comes through pretty intensely.

    Daim Blonde has been suggested a couple times, so I will suggest CK Obsession Night for Men, which has been compared to Daim Blonde only with pear instead of apricot but with the same suede note and vanilla in the drydown. Could be worth investigating!

    Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Pamplelune: grapefruit, lemon, lime, petit grain, blackcurrent, sandalwood, patchouli, vanilla

    Hermes Pamplemousse Rose: pink grapefruit, lemon, rose, and I get some woody notes in drydown but they are very gentle.

    I'm going to take a wild guess and say that you probably meant to put those pics on the wardrobe pics thread

    unless you happen to think they all smell pink?
