    aventus has pineapple and it dries down to a birch tar/ oakmoss type of thing, millesime imperial has a melony/ green mandarin smell in it, unforgiveable has a melony smell, as far as cherry i would say john varvatos.

    Aventus by Creed, Ananaz by L'Artisan; Both have pineable, I like the creed better (surprisngly), The L'Artisan smells like a cheap pineapple spray you find in bath and body works or The body shop.

    trex57, please answer a question for me. When you say pineapple, melon or bing cherry, is it your expectation that the scent will smell like one of those the whole time you wear it?

    The reason I ask is that to my knowledge, many scents start with one of these accords but it is in the top notes and fades to reveal other aspects of the scent.

    Aventus as mentioned has a very pronounced pineapple opening, but it lasts about 20-30 minutes max before it shifts to other things. In my experience, most fruit notes are fairly fleeting. They impart some personality to the scent, but they are not the scent overall.

    I haven't tried Ananaz, but it sounds like that one may hold the pineapple scent longer.

    I'll put in another vote for Ananas Fizz by L'Artisan for pineapple. Aventus is nice, but you'll never beat Ananas for pineapple. It pairs it with a dirty, peppery rum note that makes it very wearable for a man, but I can see how it's officially unisex.

    Green melon, I don't know. Maybe Escada Sunset Heat for men, but it's more of a tropical fruit salad. My go-to would be Hermes Un Jardin Apres la Mousson, which is green melon and cucumber under a ton of black pepper.

    Bing cherry, I'm stuck. Good luck!
