    Default 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.

    Adding Pink Frangipani by Lucy B, Fraiche Passiflore by MPG, & Alien Sunessence Or d'Ambre, which has a pronounced kiwi fruit note.

    Keiko Mecheri Passiflora, notes are passion flower, tropical fruits and white musk.

    Virgin Island Water would be a great choice.

    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!

    I know it's been said a thousand times, but Tommy Bahama Set Sail St.Barts is a good cheapie. I love Virgin Island water, but a scent like this is probably not something your going to wear all time and for less than $20 you can spray away.
    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.

    Have you tried it in the summer? l find it lasts much longer in the heat.

    Mango Manga by Montale. A LOT of realistic mango in this one....almost to the point of over-ripeness.

    I have only worn it in the summer, 3 hours is all I got. It would have been fine if it projected during that time, but it doesn't. Shame, the scent is one of my all time favorite.

    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.

    Gonna be a rebel here, but tropical fruits are usually feminine mainstays. Men can definitely pull of the following tropicals:
    Rihanna Rebelle
    Hillary Duff with Love
    J.Lo Miami Glow

    I don't mind wearing feminine scents!
    To me, Rebelle is everything but tropical. It's a sweet coffee/chocolate gourmand to my nose, a damn fine one!

    another vote for Bahiana by Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier. To some extent, also Eau Radieuse by H&G.

    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!
