ohh the aroma of Indian Alphonso Mangoes...damn..priceless.
Are there any scents with a ripe, yellow mango note? I know Polo Double Black has a green mango accord, and so does Hermes' Un Jardin sur de Nil, but I was looking for a sweeter, juicier ripe yellow mango accord. The mango notes in PDB and UJsdN are on the tart side, not the aroma I get when the juices release from a sweet, almost dark yellow, indian Mango. Anybody know of any scents, niche or designer, that has my coveted ripe yellow mango accord? I appreciate any suggestions guys, thanks in advance!
Quick! Some replies please! I 'd love such a scent.
Now that I thonk about though Cardin Choc and Ormonde Jayne Frangipani spring to mind. Both feminine but both wearable by a man I believe, because they are so agressive they project some virility.
Hermes Eau d'Orange Verte is supposed to have a mango note
Cassandra by Jeanne Arthes
Choc de Cardin definitely has a mango/litchi type note. It is a nice choice.
Humorous side; when I first saw the thread header, I thought of Mango from Saturday Night Live. The Chris Kattan character, who was always in tight little outfits. Hee Hee!!

Bahiana by Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier has a pretty good mango note in it.
Thanks for the suggestions, I have tried all the scents ya'll have recommended, Choc comes the closest to what I'm looking for, but still falls short. I guess I will have to keep on searching :-/
the discontinued Eau Marvillous by L'Artisan & Outrageous by Sophia Grogsman for Fredric Malle has a metalic mango notes.
Annick Goutal Folavril and L'Artisan Timbuktu have both a mango note, but since it's more of the green/tart variety, they are probably not what you're looking for. Good luck for the hunt!

According to Fragrantica there are a few scents with mango:
Hermes Un Jardin Sur Le Nil
Ralph Lauren Polo Double Black
Ralph Lauren Polo Black
Calvin Klein Escape
Hermes Eau de Cologne Hermes
Jacomo Paradox for Men
Which of these is the best for a prominent ripe mango like the OP was asking for? Are there niche scents that are better mango?
I get something that resembles mango in Aqua Nautilus.
Montale Mango Manga
I'm one of the few, but I really love the "frozen mango" opening notes in the original Polo Black. It's actually my favorite Polo and Ralph Lauren fragrance (not really saying a lot though).
+1 Folavril - for a great mango freshness - quite wearable for both sexes
+1 Mango Manga
+1 Hermes Un Jardin Sur Le Nil for green mango.
For sale. Carnal Flower and Vero Profumo Onda.
Angel by Thierry Mugler smells like ripe mango to me. LOL

The smell of a perfectly ripe mango is stunningly delicious. I would be into it if my girl smelled like that. (A bit less masculine than how I want to smell though.)
The discontinued, but widely available, Versus Uomo (1991)/Versace smells like mango. I don't know if it intentionally contains a mango note, but the end results smells like mango.
Snarky is as snarky does.
Polo Black has an amazing iced mango accord. It's much more noticeable than in Polo Double Black.

Yes, I was just about to say that Polo Black's mango is very prominent. Its drydown, however, is downright shitty. Have you tried Timbuktu?
You could give Lauder's Beyond Paradise Men a shot. Also, if guava works, maybe Calyx by Prescriptives.
Haven't tried Timbuktu nor a lot of the other suggestions, even the Polo's. Thanks everyone!
Hermes Un Jardin Sur Le Nil
and the Montale are the most intriguing to me.
Edit- Also interested in guava. I saw there was another thread dedicated to that so i'll have to read thru that one.
