    Question Suggestions please for a natural smelling/wild RASPBERRY smelling fragrance ?

    I know the theme of raspberries has been done before.
    I am looking for a perfume that specifically evokes the smell of wild raspberries - (rather than raspberry jam/raspberry ripple gourmand style fragrances).
    It can be a mens or womens fragrance, new, niche or discontinued, but I would prefer a perfume that contains a natural raspberry note as the dominant note in the perfume.
    Thanks for yor help and advice !

    Perhaps Hot Couture by Givenchy, or My Insolence by Guerlain.

    Well, Tom Ford's Tuscan Leather has a prominent raspberry note in it, accompanied of course with leather, if you're so inclined to that combination. I can't say I've had any linear or dominant raspberry fragrances.

    "The sparkling rose and raspberry jam is folded into a creamy base of vanilla, tonka bean and smooth sandalwood, taking us right to the brink of gourmand, but not quite crossing over. There is definitely an edible quality to Une Rose Vermeille – it conjures up marzipan and meringue and Bavarian cream – but it isn’t pure dessert due to the startling freshness of the rose and the deep purr of the sandalwood."

    Try Carthusia's Uomo. It contains raspberry-note and is great quality with natural-smelling materials. Diesel Fuel For Life and Tom Ford's Tuscan Leather have raspberry-note too. Tuscan leather is absolutely sample-worthy.
    Please check out my selling list:

    YSL Opium homme EDP, Rive Gauche pour homme, Villoresi Uomo, Dior Homme vintage, Body Kouros, Guerlain homme intense etc.

    Doesn't Guerlain Voyages London 04 have rasperry jam? The notes state: Fragrance notes include bergamot, grapefruit, rhubarb, violet, rose essential oil, rose absolute, and boiled sweets. The package insert also states leather.

    Mark Birleys Charles Street has a strong raspberry and leather accords and is much like Tuscan Leather but with the raspberry ramped up.

    Bond No 9's Bryant Park has a dominant raspberry note that I enjoy. (although, it does lean towards a sweeter/powdery type berry.) Still very nice though.

    Les Parfums de Rosine Glam Rose is a good smelling niche unisex with a strong Raspberry note. Sample that one. Consider Comme des Garcons series 2 Rose as well: it has a prominent raspberry pulp note. You may want to ask this question on the female forum too. The girls are surely aware of more options on their side of the aisle. In the past, they have helped me find perfume that had unisex potential that I would have overlooked because of the feminine classification.

    +1 for Tuscan Leather. The smooth leather is accompanied by a natural smell of wild raspberries. I absolutely love it - and it's the leather / raspberry combo that keeps me coming back to it. Lovely!

    Charles Street is a less ashy alternative with the raspberry amped up and the leather toned down.
    My current top ten:
    1. Spice and Wood
    2. Aplle Brandy
    3. Tonka Imperiale
    4. Pure Malt
    5. Bois d'Argent
    6. Noir de Noir
    7. 5 o'clock au Gingembre
    8. Dior Homme Intense
    9. Epic Man
    10.Tobacco Vanille
