    Pineapple or black currant tend to catch my attention most. Occasionally coconut satisfies. Fig is appreciated, but must be sneaked by Mr. Quarry. Can't abide the idea of apple — oooo, shudder. Of course, citrus fruits offer a lot of delight.

    Pineapple: Lucy B. Pink Frangipani, VIP Room
    Black Currant/Cassis: Mira Bai
    Coconut: Cadjmere 18
    Fig: Thymes Fig Leaf & Cassis

    AG Quel Amour! is pleasantly fruity. I have the EdP which has a stronger rose note than the EdT.

    From Goutal's website: Fruity, floral (wild roses, geranium rosa, pomegranate, blueberry, redcurrant, cherry, wine peach, grey amber).

    On an aside, there is something in AG Ninféo Mio as it dries down that is reminiscent of Quel Amour!. Both were created by Isabelle Doyen. There is no similarity in the stated fragrance notes, but the resemblance is there nonetheless.

    I really like Keiko Mecheri's Passiflora, which is a very crisp, tart fruit. And Gucci by Gucci EDP IS yummy!
    This scent is great, but ... MORE KITTENS!

    I love eating fruit, and my favorites are berries, closely followed by melons & citrus fruits...and my perfumes follow suit!

    L'artisan Sautes d'Humeur Joyful Rire--raspberry! (so hard to find!)
    Hilde Soliani Fraaagola Saalaaata--Strawberry!
    Aqua Allegoria Pampelune - grapefruit
    Bond No. 9: Little Italy--citrus (grapefruit, clementine, mandarin), Coney Island--a little melon & citrus?

    My favourite fruits are cherries, plums and peaches, so it follows that I
    appreciate the plummy accords in Feminite du Bois and Lou Lou.

    The peach in Mauboussin, Mitsouko and Visa (the new one) attract me too.
    Nirmala is an explosion of juicy, levantine fruits.

    I love the cherries in POTL and Rodier Eau Legere.

    I dislike apple or raspberry in a scent and find pear unpleasant too.

    Banana can be good, if handled well, as in Amaranthine by Penhaligon.
    I didn't like it in Sira Des Indes, however.

    Citrus delights me in Eau Sauvage, Eau De Rochas, Diorella and "O" de Lancome.

    I can't believe I forgot to sing the praises of my beloved Gucci Accenti! Orange, raspberry, and an undefined rich sense of "fruitiness" without being sweet or candied at all.

    I love a little fruit in my perfume; everything from heavy jam-like fruits to lighter airy cirtus-based scents.

    Badgley Mishcka - heavy on the stewed fruit! Notes included red berries and peaches but I get more of a peach or apricot jam sensation from it. It's luscious and sexy.

    YSL Yvresse - another fruity fragrance featuring peach! This is much lighter than BM and has an uplifting fizzy quality about it - fruit, yet fresh and elegant.

    Annick Goutal Petit Cherie - this is a sweet, spring-time fragrance that has a wonderful pear note. I usually find pear a bit difficult to wear but here it's well balanced with airy florals.

    Jo Malone Lime Basil Madarin - a perfect option for fruits in hot weather! This is a cologne-like scent with a refreshing citrus element, tangy lime and juicy mandarin mixed with a manly herbaceous quality.

    Dior Escale a Portofino - lemon and herbs, this is a lot softer than LBM (above) and very sheer. It has a quite sparkle to it and is perfect for long summer days.

    Missoni - an odd yet enticing mixture of fruit and chocolate. Reminds me of those delicate, thin chocolates filled with gooey fruit - certainly not everyones cup of tea but I love it!

    I typically detest berry and melone smells in perfume. Here are some perfumes with fruity notes I love:

    Japanese plum (sometimes fresh smelling sometimes stewed): Keiko Mecheri Ume (I am craving a bottle of this...)
    Plum: Feminite du Bois
    Bananas/banana leaves: Sira des Indes, EnJoy
    Fig: Premier Figuier, Un Jardin en Mediterranee (I liked this till the moment I noticed the melone smell in it - then we departed)
    Citrus: Shalimar, TDC Bergamote, Eau d'Orange Verte, Escale a Pondichery
    Coconut: Bronze Goddess, YR Coconut

    Banana scents

    - Sicily by Dolce & Gabbana - banana and bergamot.
    - Acqua di Gio by Giorgio Armani - banana, pineapple, peach and lemon.

    Pear scents

    - Petite Cherie by Annick Goutal

    Apple scents

    -DKNY Red Delicious - Apple, Raspberry and Litchi.

    Except for citrus, not really. I suspect this may be a generational thing. I come from a time when smelling like food meant that one had spilled something at lunch.

    I do make an exception for the alleged peach note in Mitsouko, only because it doesn't sound loudly on me.

    Just about everything Dior ever made smells to me and on me for all the world like a big crystal bowl of frosty melon balls.

    Tomatoes are technically berries, so I'd say they count as fruit! But I find your observation very interesting - I'll have to give my Rush a sniff and see if I can detect this tomato you speak of!

    I just made a blind buy on Montale Roses Elixer, which has strawberry listed as one of the accords. Normally I avoid 'fruity' notes but I love rose frags and technically strawberries are related to roses, so the combo seemed genius in my head!
    I'm curious to see how they translate the fragrance of sweet, musky strawberries, and how it interplays with the rose notes...

    I don't like overly fruity scents, but here are a few scents that have a fruit note in it that I still like:

    Peach - Tresor (parfum is best, or body lotion), and Burberry original
    Cherry - Cartier Delices
    Raspberry - Hot Couture (just rediscovered this)
    Orange - Coco Mademoiselle EDP, and Britney Spears Hidden Fantasy (I smell cherry in this spicy scent too)
    Blueberry - Britney Spears Midnight Fantasy

    Peach and plum! Rochas Femme, Feminité du Bois (I have been seriously considering basing desserts on these two - imagine a plum pie with cinnamon and a few drops of cedar oil, or a peach and plum compote with cumin!), Mitsouko, Habanita, Keiko Mecheri Peau de Peche.

    Orange probably works too, and fig, although I can't think of anything with those notes that I really love.
    Pear notes ruin anything and everything for me.
