+1 for Brandy !
Petty small minded people have no place in my life.
If it must be those 2...Boss Bottled. Un Jardin sur le Toit is better though.
If it's apple you seek, avoid Be Delicious for Men at all costs. It's a synthetic train wreck of a fragrance that's fit for neither man nor beast. Just a little FYI.
The absolute best I've encountered.
Aventus is decent too, albeit more cassis/pineapple than apple.
L'Anarchiste has a nice applesauce note.
Villoresi Incensi has a soft apple note as well.

Can't say I really care for smelling like an apple.
Unfortunately, I've never come across Carlos Santana for Men so I can't comment, but Boss Bottled has extremely good longevity on me. My other favourite apple scent (if you can find it anywhere cheap on the net) is Nautilis Black Marlin - to me it has the same style as A*men but done with apple instead of chocolate. I paid $30 for a bottle, then found another in a chemist for $20.

I like Dunhill Custom - great apple, woods and a bit of incense. The Apple is the best and most prevalent note. I also like Nautica Voyage and Azzaro Chrome Legend. Both of those can be had at a great discount.

Xerjoff Zafar has a strong apple note.
Try F Pour Homme and F Pour Homme Black by Salvatore Ferragamo.
Parfum d'Empire's Wazamba makes good use of apple.
It's one of my favorites.

+ 1 L'Anarchiste

Also check out 7 de Loewe for an apple/incense, and D&G The One Gentleman which has apple woven into a vanilla/lavender/patch gourmand.

YSL l'homme has an apple juice feel to it that I really like.

I know they get alot of slack here on basenotes but the original adidas and adidas dare have a very nice apple opening.... Hope this helps
hugo by hugo boss (not boss bottles) is really big on the apple smell and girls always compliment the smell
+1 on the Cereus #4. It's a great apple (green, not red) scent that is very under the radar. I saw one the other day on eBay for $60 and it didn't sell! Regular price is $125. A great buy for someone if you're looking for that particular scent.
