    Default Favorite Fruity Fragrance?

    What is your favorite "clear" fruity fragrance with clear such as Paris Hilton For Men as opposed to Fuel For Life which is a creamy scent if that makes any sense. You can name any fruity scent if you want but I'm primarily interested in the former.

    I actually own Paris Hilton and it's surprisingly pretty good but partly I believe that there isn't too many other fragrances similar. I've heard of Escada Sunset Heat or Nicole Miller but neither of which I've tried yet.

    Opinions?

    At the moment Bond No. 9 Wall Street - Very similar to Unforgivable but much better longevity and sillage, with a few different notes that make it stand out.
    Versace Man eau Fraiche is quite a 'fruity' scent as well (jackfruit), and I get what you mean with Fuel for Life being creamy.
    Looking for: Andy Tauer - L'air du Desert Morocain & Incense Extreme

    Check out Guess Suede - A very nice fruity aromatic. I am not crazy about "fruity" smells, but this juice is fruity, and it rocks!

    I would choose Millesime Imperial, but imo the iris and gris makes it opaque, which I think does not fit the "transparent/clear" qualification. Come to think of it, almost all the fruity/fresh/citrusy scents I like are opaque or creamy, so i guess my closest recommendation is MI.

    Hmmm, At the moment it is funnily enough...Zino and Amouage Jubilation..I get indolic vanilla X ebullient watermelon and peach amongst lavender and Patchouli, though with Amouage Jubilation it's more of the frankincense and the mediating fruits that really do apprise my senses to a state of sensual lust...it's mildly sour and cloying lingering of the Fruit cocktail emerges with it's already perched frankincense...they're an akin couple.

    Loving both of their presences.

    Missoni

    It's like fresh melon in syrup on top of a compost heap. A tinge of the odd, yet distinctly still within the sparkly fruity category. Like Survivalist Warrior Barbie, or something.

    LOL - that made me giggle.

    My favorite: Ananas Fizz by L'Artisan Parfumeur. Pineapple never smelled so good.

    Diesel Fuel for Life (for men) seems to me like a fruity, spicy scent. It has grapefruit and raspberry.

    There is also raspberry in ELdO Delicious Closet Queen.

    I've been wearing a bit of Hermes Un Jardin Après la Mousson lately. It's quite fruity - and lasts all day on me. I've also layered it with Terre D' Hermes a couple of times - I'm not convinced on the combination yet, so I'll probably experiment a little more...but it definitely adds another dimension to things.

    I don't really enjoy nondescript fruity overtones, prefering the more distinctive singular fruit notes such as:-
    - the pineapple in 1804 by Histoires de Parfums so I ought to give Ananas Fizz a sniff (thanks Mike!)
    - the lychee accord in Chanel's Coco Mademoiselle
    - the green mango in Hermes' Un Jardin Sur Le Nil.

    Sunset Heat is basically exactly what you want. Most of the other scents people are listing will be way too thick for your liking.
    I refuse to sink.

    Acier Aluminum - perfect fruity notes, backed up with killer amber/animalistic notes. A bit of an acquired taste for me; I had to try several times before I "got" it. I am always surprised that I get so many compliments from this one, since it seems so fruity, edgy, and "out there" to me.

    I've worn Paris Hilton, but think it to be a bit too youthful for me.
    I would suggest trying Kenneth Cole Reaction for a Watermelon/Green Apple scent.
    If you like Grapefruit, try Banana Republic Classic.

    I know I'll probably get a few stern looks, but I just had a slight run-in with Sean John's "I Am King of the Night" - mind you, I've steered clear of Unforgivable, and never smelled the prior version of "I Am King of the Night"...

    Persistent sales associate kept trying to get me to smell it. I wasn't really enthused; but I tried it on the back of my hand. That... I can wash.

    And there's a citrus/melon accord that actually went well with my chemistry. Favorite fruit? It actually could be. Even besting MI on my skin. And... that's saying something.

    I do know that I'm shocked.

    I don't think I've worn that many fruity fragrances.

    • Diesel Fuel For Life
    • Rykiel Homme
    • Azzaro Chrome (smelled fruity enough to me)
    • Paco Rabanne One Million (I feel as if I can't wear this anywhere else except for parties and clubs)

    Fruity notes in fragrances :

    Citrus fresh : lemon, bergamot, tamarin, lime, grapefruit...
    Fresh watery : watermelon, cucumber, cantaloup melon, pear...
    Tropical fruit : mango, passionfruit, lichee, kiwi...
    Sweet fruit : peach, strawberry, blackberry, raspberry, coconut...
    Green fruit : apple
    Sweet-mouthed : sugary,
    Dry fruits : dryed plum, fig,
    Sweet acid: pineapple, banana

    different kinds of fruity notes and very large.

    Citrus are fresh but no fruity note in my opinion. I like de watery fresh notes, the green fresh fruity notes, not too sweet or heavy.
