    Default A Strong Raspberry Note

    Morning all...

    Well I got my honey fix thanks to some great recommendations from you guys so I have one more fix to fill. Raspberry.

    I have Tuscan Leather but don't get the raspberry in it at all which is a shame. I guess I'm looking for a more prominent raspberry with a more sweet background rather than smokey.

    Are there any suggestions from the Basenotes community that could help out...

    Many thanks for your time

    Definitely Portrait of a Lady by Frederic Malle. It is primarily a rose and patchouli combo scent, but there is a prominent raspberry supporting note that lasts well into the scent's development that holds it all together and works perfectly with the rose in particular.

    1) Portrait of a Lady original formula (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage/V.I.P. for Men (Giorgio Beverly Hills)

    24 Gold has a very strong, sweet raspberry note. Not my thing but worth checking out.

    Yes! Too bad it's so pricey. Still, very very worth it.

    Mark Birley Charles Street - It's basically Tuscan leather with the raspberry note amped up and the leather dialled back.

    I know I would probably like all of these frags, but the notion of smelling like a raspberry seems comical to me.

    Nice suggestions!

    For some strange reason, I too want a scent that is raspberry prominent. Perhaps with other accords. Portrait of a Lady and Une Rose Vermeille both sound very interesting and beautiful!

    I have read that MPG Fraicheur Muskissime, Keiko Mecheri Wild Berries, and TDC Sublime Balkiss all have prominent raspberry notes.

    l've got to admit, "prominent raspberry" does sound funny.

    24 Gold has a fantastic raspberry note in it. It's almost like a raspberry tart. It also blends in really well with the rich amber in the base. You can go on Ebay and get a 3.4 oz tester for $27.00 shipped and a free t-shirt with your purchase.

    24 Gold, and its raspberry note, is nice but I did find it too sweet and girlie in the end.
