    Default Cologne with cherry notes?

    I am always looking to explore different types of colognes. However, I am
    having trouble finding anything that contains cherry. Is it possible for
    a cologe to contain cherry, and still remain distinctly masculine.
    I'd love to explore some possibilities if they exist out there.

    Although this was discussed before, I must clearly refer, over and over again, to CK Crave

    I wouldn't worry about wearing something that is marketed to women, that smells of cherry BradW. IMO, that's about all you're gonna find (correct me if I'm wrong guys...) For some reason, I suppose, it's an accord that most perfumers (or marketing departments of perfumers) feel is gender specific to women. Nonsense, if you ask me.

    Try Luctor et Emergo by People of the Labyrinths, Louve by Serge Lutens, Le Petite Robe Noire by Guerlain (if you can find it!) and Bendelirious by Etat Libre d'Orange for some well done cherry notes.

    Thanks for the input. However, I did review some older posts, and after some debate, I think that I will
    give Casran a shot. I almost bought a mini, but then I saw that I could get a 3 oz bottle of Casran
    for about $14 on e-bay. I went ahead and ordered it. I look forward to wearing this one.

    Casran is good. I have a bottle (found it cheap at Marshalls) and it does have a chocolate covered cherry note--not unlike Hanae Mori HM in some ways. It's not the most masculine scent out there, but I don't really find it too feminine either. It's very smooth and a touch bittersweet.

    Also, I get a cherry-like impression from Habit Rouge, which may be because of the "red" association, but still I think of cherries when I smell it (the EDC, EDP and Legere, but not so much the EDT for some reason).

    Yes Casran is a good inexpensive choice and does have a cherry like note albeit faint.

    Joop! for Men, it has a very strong cherry cough syrup note that lasts a lot. This is quite different to cherry tobacco notes, which you will find in Davidoff's Zino and Bogart pour Homme (2004).

    Yep, M7. Like the finest cherry cough syrup. Very heady and addictive, too. Yum.

    Yes M7 is a good man-cherry lol. Delices by Cartier is a big red cherry and Crystal Noir by Versace is drunk cherry.

    Guerlain L'Heure Bleue, at least in extrait form, is huge on cherry (I think it is the heliotrope). Many men here wear it quite easily.

    Though not masculine juices, if you enjoy them, Lutens Rahat loukum and Cartier Delices have huge loads of cherries

    I think a lot of people confuse cherry with bitter almond because maraschino cherries are flavoured with bitter almond extract. Heliotrope is all about almond, nothing to do with cherries. Louve has a bitter almond note. I was a little curious why people suggested Louve as a cherry scent. But I think I got this one figured out.

    ^^ Actually, heliotrope, the flower itself, is often called the "cherry pie flower". No confusion here.

    Heliotrope and bitter almond have the same main component in common, benzaldehyde. See links.

    The text also said that bitter almond and cherry are in the same family...I can't dig in too much right now, so I'll check later and repost.

    Sorry if I 'm dragging this but I 've been wondering about that for ages. It says in the text that bitter almonds and the seeds of apricots and cherries contain similar oils. The cherry scent as it is found in cough syrup or lozenges does not include the bitter almond flavor of the cherry pit.

    Default Re: Cologne with cherry notes?

    Hey Guys, I received my bottle of Casran today and had to sample some on my wrist. Though not an easy scent
    to detect, due to the aftershave strength, my impression was that it was a bit perfumy. Certainly not as masculine
    as M7 and Varvatos. It certainly smells pleasant enough though, so I expect to give this one a go.

    OK, here is a useful source that lists different suppliers of benzaldehyde and what the scent characteristics of some of them are. Many descriptors state almond, cherry or both. You can click through to the suppliers, eg, Vigon, and see the spec sheet and aromatic description (in this case, "characteristic cherry"):

    http://www.thegoodscentscompany.com/data/rw1001491.html

    Here is a Google Books excerpt which talks about how benzaldehyde is the main component in cherry juice and how benzaldehyde is important as an ingredient in synthetic cherry flavorings:

    Oh, and by the way, I am wearing L'Heure Bleue extrait today...the first few hours are cherry-vanilla-almond, kind of jammy and pastry-like.

    I remember that I had a formula for making a cherry accord for fragrance and benzaldehyde was key.
