Paco Rabanne Black XS.
Thread: a (young) mans fruity fragrance
You should give that new Joop Homme Wild a go. I was only saying yesterday that it is very fruity.
Paco Rabanne Black XS.
Hermes Un Jardin Sur Le Nil
Polo Double Black
Not excessively fruity, stylishly casual and suitable for various age groups: Trussardi Jeans for Men.
L'Anarchiste de Caron
Arabie de Serge Lutens
Do you consider the fig to be a fruit?
If Yes, try: Hermes' Un Jardin en Mediterranee (sweet light fig) or L'artisan's Primier Figuier (figgy fig fig)
(I have not smelled the dipytique fig)
If No, then why not?
Serge Lutens' Chergui, more of a plum/cherry/raisin vibe but nevertheless a very intriguing sweet/spicy smell
The hunt for a Signature Fragrance is not an easy one! I see the light at the end of the tunnel! Edit: 2015... I've given up and given in

Love and Luck, Unforgivable. Great cheaper alternatives to MI.
I remember this one by Coty called Avatar, great smelling scent.
Versace Fraiche, Chrome Legend is also very good.
I was thinking either a pineapple/tropical fruit with some darker basenotes or a sweet red fruit (strawberries, red berries etc.) with a chocolate or vanilla backdrop. But well done of course. Can be classy or fun! Doesn't matter to me
Black XS is what OP is looking for
The opening especially is fruity - strawberry-praline-pineapple
THe dry down is really woody oriental
Love & Luck by Ed Hardy. $25 at Ross.
