    Default Which fragrance has your favorite blend of smoke AND fruit?

    I get that Aventus holds the most-loved/most-hated of this category, but what fragrance has your favorite combination of smoke and fruit?

    Edited for the pedantic

    Hmm Aventus is more smoke and fruit, whereas a smoked-fruit - yes, I'm that pedantic that I think there's a difference - would be something like Coeur de Vetiver Sacre or Michael Kors for Men (and its much bigger brother, Rume).

    Eau de Fier by Annick Goutal is one that reminds me a bit of smoky fruit.

    That's a good point! Let me rephrase the question: which fragrance has your favorite blend of smoke AND fruit!

    Xerjoff - Najaf:
    The OSMANTHUS peachy-apricot-y accord mixed with smoked tobacco is just adorable combination.

    I'm testing Yosh Konig this evening, and it's a very likable combination of tart apple and smokey vetiver. In fact, the tangy fruit-meets-smoke accord reminds me of Aventus, though I find the Yosh to be more refined. Very much worth trying.

    I agree about Plum Japonaise and Andy Warhol (to my nose essentially the same scent; find Andy Warhol at a cheaper price if you can since it is discontinued). Frank #2 is another good choice. Off the radar would be Byredo Bullion, a plum, smoky leather, osmanthus (hints of apricot), musk and woody blend that is unique and one I have obsessed on.
