    From your list, Sex Pistols. But my favorite is Annick Goutal Mon Cherie par Camille EDP.

    Among the two, the ELdO. But Serge Lutens is the king of plums (Feminite de bois, Boxeuses, etc etc)

    Serge Lutens Boxeuses, wonderful plum leather, don't know why this doesn't get more love around here.

    I don't know the two you mention, neal, but this one has a superb boozy plum + patchouli retro vibe. EDT & EDP both shine.

    The best plums are Feminite du Bois and KM Ume, IMO.

    Hi, I know it will bother You, but I'm sure You can bear it (is it a pun when referring to Your avatar?).

    Why are You people focused on 'notes' so much? In this case 'plum'. I have to admit, I don't know what that might be. Isn't a perfume expected to be a whole in the first place? Something strange, mystical rather than a pile of countable components. When it comes to the components, nobody informed could expect to have real 'plum' in his perfume. These 'notes' are made up by using single chemicals. Many 'notes' will have overlapping lists of constituents:

    A + B => C
    A + X => Y

    put into a perfume

    2*A + B + X => C + Y

    correct?!?! Particularly if possibly

    B + X => K

    2*A + B + X => C + Y or => 2*A + K

    My conclusion, 'notes' are abundant to describe modern perfume. Despite some 'niche' firms surfing the 'natural' wave to suggest value (Angelique Extreme, Tuberose De Cellophane, Road Apple Oriental).

    Again, it may bother, but its for Your own good! Isn't it so, that 'noting' a perfume out neglects the most fascinating part, how it is made to 'sing' together and on what tune?!

    <edit> Andy Warhol - no question!

    sorry

    I never tried Bond you mention, but reading plum about Sex Pistols I remain surprise , really I'm not able to smell this fruit in the fresh punky scent..
    Serge Lutens for me too is the king of plum!
    Parfum d'Empire - Aziyadé is too interesting with his unique dirty plum!

    Amouage Dia has a very present plum note or am I mistaken? I recommend that besides the aforementioned wonderful Lutenses and the pretty fresh & pretty nice Sex Pistols. Haven't tried the Warhol yet.
    Kurt smells like Teen Spirit

    My thoughts also but I haven't tried the two you specifically asked about.

    WildThingy, isn't asking for a plum perfume similar to asking for a Vetiver or rose dominant perfume?
