    Default Sweet/Fruity Fragrances

    Hey everyone,

    I'm looking for something sweet and fruity (I know, very exciting, but my girlfriend loves this type of scent and I enjoy it too).

    I already have Love & Luck, Paris Hilton for Men, and samples of Millesime Imperial and Aventus. I like all of them, but I can't afford Creed right now and I want something new. I'd prefer non-niche (so I can find it) and under $60. Thanks!

    You can afford a decant of either at that price. I would go with that.
    Top 5 Favorite Fragrances:
    1) Creed Aventus
    2) Creed Millesime Imperiale
    3) Kiton Black
    4) YSL M7
    5) Gucci Pour Homme II

    L'Eau d'Issey and Aqua Di Gio but those are both a little spendy. If you shop around you might be able to get both Unforgivable and Voyage for under $50.

    Voyage isn't really fruity or sweet, and I already have it. I've tried Unforgivable and, to me, it smells like a bad version of Love & Luck.

    Frapin 1270 smells like a mixture of candied oranges and butterscotch. I actually have a 16ml decant up for swap.

    Voyage has got an apple note in it. Apples are fruity. But alright, the point is it's not what you're looking for. I agree with you about Unforgivable. Have you tried L'Homme by YSL or Burberry Touch? I think they're both under $60.

    Paco Rabanne's Black XS l'Exces for Him is quite good. A nice blend of lemon and pineapple.

    On the cheaper side, try Ted Lapidus Black Soul. Huitieme Art seems to specialise in fruity perfumes, although they are niche, they're pretty affordable. Of those that I've tried, I was impressed with:

    Ciel D'Airain** From France to Italy, under a magnificent dark sky over the Lago di Como; the smell of a great electric storm breaking over the orchards laden with bursting fruit. The city and everyday life seem things of another world...pears,luscious apples,apricots and the subtle smells of woods and barks responding to the deluge. Grey ambergris adds that late summer warmth behind the rains.

    Manguier Metisse** Tahiti as found by Joseph Banks and Captain Cook- ripe green-golden mangoes dropping from the trees into the crystalline waters of the lagoon. Tea sipped on the glittering white sands of the vast beaches, the girls' hair wreathed in garlands of frangipani flowers - everywhere the delicate but penetrating fragrance of fruits and tropical blossoms.

    Vohina** From morning to sun-drenched drowsy afternoon in the fields beyond the garden walls; too warm for the birds to sing - just the murmur of crickets and hum of pollen-laden bees. A sensual velvety scent of warm ripe peaches and and golden honey from heavy heads of lavander; a dry sweet base of hay and sandalwood.

    1270 will not be ideal for summer imo, also projection sucks hardcore. Ch Chic is a good one

    @koala501: Considering Chic.

    @CaliDude: I've wanted to try KC Reaction, but I'm worried about its apparently terrible longevity.

    @Shiny Beast: I'm considering YSL L'homme. I've not tried Touch; I'll check it out when I can.

    @perfaddict: How's PR Black XS l'Exces compare to the original? The notes look good, but I didn't like Black XS.

    @mustafa604: Interesting suggestion. I might try it.

    @Fraghead: Thanks, I'll look into these.

    @Shaka: I want to try Legend.

    Thanks for the replies everyone (and I'm sure I'll get more). I'm making a trip to Macy's and possibly Perfumania tomorrow, so hopefully I'll be able to sample some of these.

    Lush has some really nice sweet stuff, if you can believe it. Some of the Lush range are available only online, but you will find samples for sale in the brick and mortar stores. Lust is a very fruity jasmine, 2543 is citrusy, Karma is orange patchouli, and online there's Cocktail and B scent.

    D&G The One (a tropical sweetness vibe)
    Rochas Man (sweet yet it has a coffee vibe to it more than a fruity vibe)
    Lacoste Blanc (Coconut vibe and sweet, sorta synthetic tho)

    Armani Diamonds (Strawberries dipped in chocolate)
    Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche(Lemon meringue pie)

    I must add the first three of these have poor longevity.

    Black XS by Paco Rabanne - This wonderfully exotic fragrance opens with a citrus duet of lemon and kalamanzi, commingling with sage and tagete. I am not quite sure if the spice and marigolds work on the citrus, but a tangy stawberry becomes sensorially incarnate. The sweet heart with its cinnamon, black cardamom, tolu balm and praline wrests control of this pseudo-strawberry, and excises the bitterness yielding a dark, sweet and spicy concoction. The eager base, with its woods and amber, as well as its hint of patchouli, evicts the fruitiness, and forms a warm and inviting drydown. The longevity for this daring fragrance is good, while its projection is average for a close to the skin scent.

    Black XS seems like a good call in your price range.

    If you're considering going the decant route, I would highly recommend Bond No. 9 Andy Warhol. It's a super sweet plum fragrance.


    Oops, I didn't see you weren't a fan of Black XS. The Bond comment still stands.

    I also probably would not recommend 2543 by Lush, only because it's a very sharp, sour citrus. If that interests you though it is a great little fragrance
