Escada Taj Sunset.
Thread: Tropical fruits in a bottle
Have you ever stumbled upon a fragrance that smells like tropical fruits? I haven't, but would love to. If you have, suggest me some!
Thanks in advance.
Escada Taj Sunset.
To a certain extent, Joop! Nightflight
Adding Pink Frangipani by Lucy B, Fraiche Passiflore by MPG, & Alien Sunessence Or d'Ambre, which has a pronounced kiwi fruit note.
Paco Rabanne Black XS (for men) smells like tropical fruit to my nose, it is not to my liking horrible stuff.
What I've Been Wearing:
Creed Virgin Island Water
Keiko Mecheri Passiflora, notes are passion flower, tropical fruits and white musk.
Virgin Island Water would be a great choice.

+1 on Virgin Island Water and to a degree Aventus which has got some pineapple going on.
Calyx by Prescriptives; lots of guava in this one.
+ on Calyx and also Bahiana by Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier

Agree with Bahiana and Virgin Island Water. Add Escada PH.
Is the juice worth the squeeze?
I'd buy Virgin Island Water is the longevity wasn't as bad as it is, that includes projection. The smell however is heavenly! Will check the other ones out as soon as possible, keep the suggestions coming, and thanks a lot so far!
My current favorites:
Bleu De Chanel, Creed Green Irish Tweed, Zino Davidoff, Dior Homme Intense, Creed Royal Oud, M7 (all versions), Chanel Egoiste, Dior Homme Sport, and Thierry Mugler Pure Malt.
Mango Manga by Montale. A LOT of realistic mango in this one....almost to the point of over-ripeness.

Pretty Fruity by Montale

+ X on Virgin Island Water
Also, Polo Black (and to a lesser extent Double Black) with a strong mango note.
Speakeasy by Frapin - maybe my sample from Luckyscent was off, but every time I have sampled it, it smells exactly like a boozy Hawaiian Punch to my nose. If you don't know what Hawaiian Punch is, its a tropical fruit soda. I like it, but not sure what situation I would ever wear it.

BYREDO Pulp...its some kind of a mango , very fleshy and juicy....maybe too much of a ripe fruit
Creed VIW. No longevity issues on me. The stuff lasts forever on my skin.
Gonna be a rebel here, but tropical fruits are usually feminine mainstays. Men can definitely pull of the following tropicals:
Hillary Duff with Love
J.Lo Miami Glow
the incredible aramis bermuda tonic and paris hilton man.
another vote for Bahiana by Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier. To some extent, also Eau Radieuse by H&G.

Patou's Colony, if you like pineapple.
Bahiana, but seems weak to me. PULP is stronger
Its pricey but Rivages des Syrtes from MDCI Great pronounced pineapple note with smoke. The nose is PdN. Excellent
My mom's great. I appreciate her sense of humor, patience and fondness for daytime drinking. :0)
Un jardin après la mousson has neutral rating here at BN but it works well for me in the heat. Might want to check it out if you haven't. Have fun searching!
