Creed - Millesime Imperial -> Melon.
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.

Polo Black - Mango
Creed Himalaya - Berries
Diptyque - Oyedo >> Grapefruit
Via Condotti pour Homme by Lancetti - peaches - onre of the best fruity frags I have smelled is not too sweet, and lasts all day on me
Maxim's Pour Homme - basket of ripe mixed fruits.
Signature by Jean Jacques Vivier
Un Jardin Sur Le Nil by Hermes - green mango
L'Imperatrice by D&G - kiwi, watermelon (smells more like peach or guave though)
Straight To Heaven By Kilian - nutmeg
There is a Bond that bares an uncanny resemblance to peaches, name escapes me ATM.
Serge Lutens Daim Blond - Apricot with a suede texture - totally unique and remarkable.
Lately I've been wearing:
Windsor, Bois de Santal, Original Santal, Elixir, Douro, Endymion, Reflection, Arcus, Marwah
Diesel-Only for the Brave-I think there is a Watermelon note in there.
"What actions are most excellent? To gladden the heart of human beings, to feed the hungry, to help the afflicted, to lighten the sorrow of the sorrowful, and to remove the sufferings of the injured" Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)
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.
Quasar and Quasar Adventure by J del Pozo.
Guerlain Mitsouko -- peach
Chanel No.5 EDT -- peach
Diorella -- overripe melon
TDC Osmanthus -- apricot
Bois 1920 Real Patchouly -- cherry
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.
GB, you reminded me...how could I forget the plums in Serge Lutens Feminite du Bois?
Byredo Pulp - Blackcurrant, Fig, Red Apple
Eau d'Italie Sienne L'Hiver - Black Olive
i Profumi di Firenze Brezza di Mare - Watermelon
John Varvatos - Medjool Date
Neil Morris Aegean - Quince
Neil Morris Hologram - *Yuzu, Blackcurrant
Neil Morris Zephyr - Papaya
TDC Sublime Balkiss - Blackcurrant, Blueberry
*Citrus, but an unusual one!
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.
