    Kenneth Cole Reaction has a prominent green apple note alongside watermelon.

    Agreed. Smells like cheap green apple bubblegum though.

    Be careful with Kenneth Cole Reaction: It's a cheap smelling fragrance!

    Definitely L'Anarchiste by Caron. Fresh apple and spices.

    Although "apple" isn't listed as one of the notes, Nautica VOYAGE smells similar to apples.
    Licorice candy for breakfast, and another dab of Black Vines by Kerosene. And a spritz of Plum Japonais for Sunday.

    Ah, I just thought of this thread when I was thinking about a scent I might be buying soon: Brandy. Fall is approaching, and Brandy just speaks of that season to me. It is, hands down, the best apple fragrance ever. It's apple and peach over hay and spice. Incredible stuff. It just smells like autumn to me, that clean harvest smell when the grass turns to straw and the last fruits are brought in. It's nicely sweet on the base. It's a great unisex scent, perhaps leaning slightly toward the feminine with the big fruit notes, but if you want to smell of apples, no fragrance does apple better than Brandy.

    I'll third Boss Bottled. It's a real apple, unlike the apple candy in Be Delicious and Reaction, and is just damn nice. I was able to score it at TJ Maxx for cheap, and is one of my new favs.

    The Burberry Men is a very nice fruity fougère, with apple and nice spices. It's elegant without being stuffy or formal. A good pick for an apple scent.

    That's the apple I would think of. It seems to get mixed reviews with a lot of people not liking it, but it has seemed OK when I've tested it. Not fantastic, but different and interesting.

    I think the topic has gone on for long enough without the latest Guess Man being brought into consideration.

    A realy good one is:

    green, green, green and green by Miller et Bertaux

    It has a green apple note. Basically the premise of the fragrance is to include a lot of notes that are considered "green" like vetiver, green apple, grass, etc. I know Lucky Scent has samples of it.

    I wholeheartedly agree about Guess Men. So far, it's my favorite new frag of 2006!

    I guess I'll third the new Guess Man too. While I think it's a bit more of a warm-weather scent, I'm sure it'll do ok in cooler weather. While it's by no means a breakthrough scent, I do think it's one of the better scents of 2006 (that's really not saying much though ).

    well,. i dont think that GUESS man is for warm/cold weather... because i found it more fresh, fruity and spicy and is easy to wear in any kind of weather.. maybe some woody note make it more strong, but sure is very versatile...

    Why has there as yet been no mention of Hermessence Ambre Narguile??

    These are the ones I own. Desire which is supposedly loaded with apples, although I dont get apples. Hugo has apples although not dominant to me. Theres also Mesmerize, although by Avon I like. Apple is not dominant to my nose either. As mentioned previously, Be Delicious is supposedly loaded with green apples. I cant attest to this, but my girl can. She asked me if I ever smelled it. A sure sign that she likes it.

    Nicole Miller but I'm not a fan of the red apple scent

    I immediately thought of several that have already been mentioned (Burberry, Boss Bottled, Red Delicious).

    Joop Thrill Man has some Apple in the top notes, but its very fleeting.

    YSL Jazz Prestige has a pretty strong apple note, very nice spicy apple tree type vibe. It is unfortunately discontinued though. I've seen it pop up on ebay once every 3-4 weeks or so on the UK site.

    Although it's debut has gotten some apathetic responses here on basenotes, I am head over heels for Aventus. It opens with apple, pineapple and blackcurrent.
