    Default Unusual or remarkable fruit scent

    Many fragrance have very a common citrus scent. Since citrus is such a common odor, from detergent to insect repellent, it would be interesting to compile colognes with a dominant fruit scent that isn't so common. Any suggestions? If you think a perfume marketed for women would fit this category and be appropriate for a man, tell us.

    The pineapple note in Ananas Fizz by L'Artisan Parfumeur is just delicious and so tart/fresh smelling it's unbelievable.

    In the discontinued Shiso (Series 1: Leaves) by Comme des Garcons - the lingering note smells like unripened pear skin (someone recently mentioned it smells like unripe green plums). Weird, because it has a ink / glossy paper, kind of aura, to it as well.

    Bhiel al02 - plums, apricots, figs, dried fruit, incense, booze, and vanilla. Easily my all-time favorite fruity frag, and totally at odds with most "fruity" fragrances in general.

    Welcome to Basenotes. We're a pretty gender-bending bunch here. I know there are more than a few guys here who wear Chanel No. 5, Diorella, Coco Mademoiselle, etc. Lots of guys including me like the Light Blue for women also. Speaking of - I really like Light Blue's apple note.

    I was close to commit a "no true scotsman" fallacy... I should reformulate then: Can you imagine Clint Eastwood with Chanel No 5?

    I love No.5 but prefer wearing No.5 Eau Premiere since it's a little 'fresher' and with more vanilla. My ex-GF who got me into fragrance always used to say that if you're really into fragrances the only thing that matters is whether you like the fragrance. She would wear Polo one day and No.5 the next. It's kind of a foreign concept at first, but if you think about it for a while it starts to make a lot of sense... after all, it's nobody's business what fragrance you're wearing. Perfume is just a liquid that has an aroma on the skin; it isn't 'for men' or 'for women' just because it's sold on one side of the department store or the other. Plus it seems that a lot of 'womens perfumes' really aren't very feminine - it's just that women spend more on fragrance! I love Guerlain Shalimar, Dior Diorella, and plenty of other 'feminine' fragrances. Of course if you come into a work meeting with a ton of No.5 on people might look at you funny, but there's a time and place for everything....

    Pomegranate Noir by Jo Malone, Cedrat Intense by Parfums Nicolai both have striking fruit notes that are different from the everyday citrus fragrance. Pomegranate Noir is pomegranate fruit with smoke incense and woods - a very unusual scent. Cedrat Intense is just bursting with citrus lemon then follows with a dry patchouli and leather base. Both are quite different from what you might expect.

    Diesel - Fuel for Life has a very playful raspberry scent.

    D&G - L'Imperiatrice (no.3 in the collection) has an unapologetically wet and juicy watermelon w/floral punch to it. My twin brother found it to be too feminine at first whiff, but i've worn it twice and love it. I don't mind being audacious with a fragrance. . which prolly goes for most on this site.
