    Currently I am looking a rich smelling berry scent with good projection. If I can get you guys to give me three recommendations it would be really appreciated?

    I have been wanting to try it but I am really leery because of the different threads that I have seen about it saying it has terrible longevity. It sounds amazing but I don't want to get my hopes up.

    Cmax beat me to it. Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir lasts forever with decent projection. I wore it yesterday in the heat.

    Delices de Cartier, which smells like the syrup concentrate of the whole yearly output of a large fruit-processing plant, has malicious sillage and satanic longevity. I am in no way suggesting that you try it. But it's been in the stores for years, so somebody must be using it. I suspect that one of the entries in the La Prairie Life Threads series could be a competitor, but I stopped smelling after the second in the series.

    Fantastic thread! I do love me some fruit fragrances, even though I can barely ever find any ones that I really enjoy.

    I agree with the Pomegranate Noir suggestions; also excellent projection and longevity. I don't know any other berries; still learning.

    It lacks a bit of the pseudo-richness of modern perfumes, but that may be due to missing (really?) ISO E Super. So it may appear to be a bit edgy. Besides of that, it does fit the discription above. Berry - what ever that is in particular, plus some musk.

    ps: projection is neither overwhelming nor embracing, just tame, but noticable there. Which is good in my understanding. Longevity is very good with a slight development all the time - not a bad thing to have.

    I want to try Black XS but it looks a little Acqua de Gio, Leau de Issey for my taste. I don't want to smell like One Million or any of the other unwashed masses! Only kidding
