    There are some nicely done grapefruity/florals by Ellena including Eau de Pamplemouse Rose Rose Ikebana, and In Love Again. And his Jardin series fragrances are also popular.

    Not sure about niche...I think Dior must have some nice ones.

    Edit: Oh wait...Annick Goutal does these well... Where is Mimi Gardenia these days?
    Great question, BTW.

    Vero Profumo Rubj Eau de Parfum... passionfruit and heady orange blossom. Sleeker, dirtier, and fruitier than the parfum.

    Martine Micallef's Red Special Edition 2011 is also an elegant fruity floral.

    Not niche, but very nice -- Lalique Amethyst (black currant -- blackberry -- iris scent, less muskier than Mure et Musk by L'Artisan or MPG Mure).

    - Frederic Malle le parfum de Therese
    - Annick Goutal Petite Cherie

    I think the original Badgley Mischka is a great fruity floral, although I don't think it's 'niche'

    Bond No. 9 is where I'd look too. High Line is florally, but not too fruity.

    Ohh, many thanks for so many suggestions. OK, also non-niche pls ;-)

    Teo Cabanel Julia; this is a very unique fruity floral in that it contains a bilge note that quite polarizing and animalic. My knees weaken everytime I smell it.

    Now that you're including non-niche, I can agree that the original Badgley Mischka is an excellent fruity floral - for some reason, it always reminds me of brandy fruits and custard. :-)

    Other good ones in my opinion: YSL Cinema EDP, Annick Goutal Passion EDP, Nina Ricci Nina (new version).

    You might want to check out the house of Krigler (based in NYC). I reviewed several of their perfumes a while back at fragrantica and recommended Sparkling Diamond for fruity-floral gals looking for something special to wear for their wedding.

    I also recommend Ineke Briar Rose, a recent limited-edition launch (available only at Anthropologie and not in the bn db).

    Knize Belle Epoque is a beautiful fruity floral

    La Prairie's Midnight Rain is a fav of mine, as is Nuit de Cellophane.

    @alfarom-Is Baghari really a fruity floral? I would think its more of an oriental.

    What about flowerbomb. It makes it sound like it is all flowers but to me it just smelled fruity. To me it smelled like the man's version of Black XS but I haven't heard anyone else say that.

    L'Heure Diaphane (Les Heures de Cartier)

    Fruity floral is not my area of expertise so if I'm way off base, apologies. I did try this one when I was at Cartier (I wear L'Heure Fougueuse) and it certainly struck me as a sophisticated take on this particular genre . . . might be worth a look?

    So Pretty by Cartier is my one of my favorite fruity florals, and although it's definitely fruity, juicy and luscious, it's not very sweet. It's a crisp rose and blackberry chypre, and it's simply as elegant as they come.
    Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan

    Another good one from them is Peche Cardinale. It's peach-gardenia-tuberose; a lighter, fruitier cousin to Estee Lauder PC Tuberose Gardenia.
