Thread: Plum

  1. #1

    Default Plum

    Haven't seen a thread on this, but forgive me if i missed it.

    Recently discovered I like plum as a major note. What plum fragrances do you like/recommend?

    Very familiar with Cuiron and Voleur de Rose (and like both).

    Cheers!
    My current top 10: Richard James; Clive Christian No. 1 for Men; L'Artisan Voleur de Roses; Creed Aventus, Erolfa, Santal Imperial, Virgin Island Water, and Windsor; Serge Lutens Chergui and Gris Clair

    Some mention smelling it in Michael Kors. Plum doesn't stand out to me so much as it's amongst the dried fruit notes. You like Cuiron so you should give MK a try.

    I, personally, detest plum notes in fragrances, so when I encounter them they usually ruin a scent for me. I agree with gandhajala, it's in Boxeuses by Serge Lutens.

    I can't quite recall which one, but I'm pretty sure one of the Canali's or maybe a Paul Smith has a prominant plum note. maybe it's Canali double black?

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    If you want to go for a cheapie that I sometimes see at Marshall's/TJ Maxx, Liz Claiborne's Lucky No. 6 features a prominent plum note.

    half of the scents mentioned above smell nothing of plum, and some, some don't even exist. Canali Double Black? lol



    listen to me Richard, that Frank No.2 is priced right at $65 for 65ml. only problem for you is it's out of stock 90% of the time.

    Liasons Dangereuses By Kilian. Plum and Rose are prominent and well blended, making for a juicy, sweet rose. Very feminine, IMO. Like it but couldn't wear it, and I'll wear Voleur de Rose, Rose Oud and Lyric Man, so I'm not afraid of rose!
