    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?

    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!

    Also the top notes of New York Oud have a prominent plum note as well, though they don't stick around for the full ride.

    lol yourself, no need to be dickish about it. I meant Canali Black Diamond, but it's probably not the plum noted one I was thinking of. Anyway, everything everyone else says is wrong anyway right since you're the expert...

    I love AL02, but I find it more a stewed fruit scent rather than fresh plum. That being said, it might be the best stewed prune note you've ever seen.

    hmm, is it stewed the way uncle Serge does it? If it is, I might have to try it.

    Stewed the same way but not the same fruits. I once did some kitchen tomfoolery involving burnt sugar, apricots, and cumin and that sauce reminded me strongly of the Arabie accord. AL02 is more apples, pears, plums stewed with some cinnamon-clove combo. If you could extract the fruit from Fille En Aiguilles ( which strikes me as a sort of apple-steam note ), it's be the closest among Serge's line-up.
