    I love marzipan, but only to eat, not to wear. For wearing I prefer the candied-almond scent of Jour de Fête.

    Here are a few more fragrances not previously mentioned that smell of almond. Both of these have a cherry-like almond, the sort I associate with marzipan--- not a heliotrope/candied, Jordan almond.

    Provence Santé Sweet Almond:

    Fragonard Lavande-- starts off lavender but become that cherry-almond scent. I did not like the transition, personally, but it might appeal to some.

    +1 Antico Caruso (Profumum) for a terrific straight-up almond.

    Not sure that I agree with Les Nereides Opoponax for either almond or marzipan. It's a great unique scent but more of a balsamic, resin oriental vibe to me that manages to stay just this side of too sweet.

    I would actually say Tonka Imperile, as Tonka to my nose is quite almondy

    Mon Precieux Nectar by Guerlain definitely needs to be added to this list. It's an almond monster!

    Marzipan note can be found in Cerruti 1881 Black. Very sweet fragrance, synthetic (but not heavy) and very pleasing.

    True, but is a good alternative for one looking for the "marzipan kind of sweet" but not the exact note.
    ointments and perfume delight the heart....

    Lagerfeld Jako has a relatively pronounced almond accord lurking about, but I wouldn't call it an almond scent. Still, very nice. And becoming hard to find.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    DK Fuel for men has a diffuse marzipan note mixed with dried fruit, suede and leather.
