    Default Candied fruits, help me asap!

    I have found that candied fruits like the accord you can find in Ultrared Men by PR is superb. I'm in the search of similar scents.

    To sum it up really quick, I wan't a fragrance to smell like candied fruit. The fruits I mean are red apple, pineapple, grapefruit, mandarin, orange, blood orange, pear. And when I say candied I mean what they would smell if mixed up with sugar. Not syrupy, but sugary!

    List every scent you can think of and write down which fruit the scent you are suggesting smells like.

    I know that I did a similar thread some days ago, but it wasn't much help there.

    Thanks in advance!

    I am thinking of Turkish delight, and the great scent of Traversee du Bosphore. Leather with candied rose with fruits.

    You can also try Keiko Mecheri Loukoum and Dior Hypnotic Poison. Both smell like sweet almond candy.

    SL Daim Blond has apricots.

    Histoires de Parfums 1804 George Sand has great top notes of pineapple and peach.

    Thank you very much! I'm really familiar with Turkish Delight since I'm from Turkey myself. Sadly I can't stand the taste of it nor the smell of it. Thanks for your comment!

    Luca Turin uses the exact phrase "candied fruit" to describe Chanel Egoiste.

    I can see why he would say it, though personally I think Egoiste only resembles candied fruit very briefly in the opening, and only in passing.
    Current Top Ten:

    1. Creed Millesime Imperial
    2. Serge Lutens Chergui
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Creed Virgin Island Water
    5. Chanel Eau de Cologne
    6. Thierry Mugler Pure Havane
    7. Van Cleef & Arpels Pour Homme
    8. Bulgari Blu
    9. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    10. YSL Kouros

    Bergamot, grapefruit, woods, saffron, jasmine, and sugar are its main notes.
