    Default Need HELP finding the best PLUM fragrance!!

    I have tried Shiseido Feminite du Bois as well as Serge Lutens Bois Oriental and Bois et fruits. All are gorgeous oriental fragrances, with a plum note. I also tried L'occitane's plum blossom - it is a gorgeous, light floral perfume.

    I am now specifially looking for a very prominent plum note in perfume. The same way you can say Bryant Park has a very strong raspberry note - this is what I want my plum perfume to smell like. I've looked on theperfumedcourt.com for that note, but most fragrances seem to have a plum in it, yet none of them are PLUM fragrances.

    Please, if you have any suggestions, it will be greatly appreciated!!

    I've known Kenzo Elephant for many years now and have used quite a few bottles of it in the past. It's a gorgeous, super-heavy, woody/spicy fragrance - but I didn't smell any plum in it, did you?
    Bond no.9 So New York is one of the very few bonds I have not tried yet, and need to sample it ASAP!!

    One more that might be worth a look - not an overtly plummy scent but very, very nice.

    Have you tried any of these in person? Which one would be the "plumiest" of the all?

    But is the plum note really highlighted in it, or is it overwhelmed by other ingredients? I wanted a fragrance with a real prominent plum note

    Form me is plum prominent, and I have remembered another one:

    Il Bacio - Marcella Borghesse

    that I think you should give a try...

    You should try Annayaké's Tsukimi, but I've read before that it's not so easy to come by in the US.

    Tsukimi is sometimes compared to Feminité du Bois and I definitely see the similarities. It's sweet and deep and rich.. it can easily become sickening if used in overdoses (a bit like eating a plate of plum jam ) I wouldn't say it's JUST plum, but the other notes definitely contribute to a reading of plum.

    Pierre Cardin Monte-Carlo has a deep, rich plum aroma. The drydown is especially nice, and it is very long lasting.

    I am not sure I have ever met a really plum prominent fragrance, but I suggest Rochas Femme (I have only tried vintage PdT), Serge Lutens Boxeuses and Guerlain Parure.

    If there is ever a chance, I will try Tsukimi for SURE. It's so funny, a lot of times the perfumes that I definitely MUST try, of course are hard to to come by in US. But thanks for a great suggestion, I will do everything in my power to try this!
