    Default Absolute fruit bombs?

    I recently smelled Paco Rabanne Black XS and I liked it. The fruit note seemed completely dominant. Any other ones out there? Below is other stuff I can think of

    Paris Hilton for Men
    Calvin Klein Euphoria Intense
    Spicebomb??? Never checked out the notes but it smelled somewhat fruity from what I remember

    I heard Kenneth Cole Reaction smells like melon but has zero longevity. Anyone can attest to this?

    Yes, I enjoyed Black XS (a little too sweet, but nice). I purchased Black XS L'Excess flanker - bought it blind - it is a pineapple bomb - but I find it very cloying. But, might be worth looking into.

    KC Reaction is a great smelling fragrance. Glad to own it. But you hear correctly - it only seems to last a few hours tops on me.

    +1. This is probably the most intense, long lasting, strong, mixed fruit fragrance that I have ever worn or smelled.

    I personally wouldn't call Aventus a fruit bomb. Yes, it does smell fruity (pineapple) but it changes rather quickly to a woody/smoky scent that I don't find fruity at all. Depends on which batch you have as well, some batches are fruitier than others.

    My recommendation would be Byredo's Pulp as well!

    Spicebomb's not fruity. Diesel Fual for Life, Lacoste Style in Play and Boss Bottled are very fruity imo.

    Yep. FFL is super fruity, loud and sweet.

    Also a massive +1 (I hate using +1, but it's apt here) to Pulp.

    I smelled that for the first time a few weeks ago and it's like getting hit in the face with fruit. Not too sweet, incredibly natural, and lasts a surprisingly long time. I want both it and Mink from the Byredo line.

    Boss Bottles smells woody more than anything IMO, but it's a great fragrance if you love the smell of apples, woods and a tad of vanilla.

    Nearly everything is fruity these days. Try Hermes Jardin series for fruit salad/fruit juice overload.

    IZOD - Melody of invigorating fruits (very underrated gem.. and cheap!)
    Joop! - Fruity berry blast, with tons of projection
    Escada Sunset Heat - Harder to find now, longevity sucks, smells like Hawaiian Punch.
    Set Sail St Barts - Fruit Loops.
    CK Escape - Although hard to wear, and quite unorthodox, smells like a fruit salad with some spice thrown in.
    My 3 Signature Scents:

    Rive Gauche Light (2004)
    Fahrenheit (1988)
    Paul Smith Man (2009)

    - Aventus
    - Millesime Imperial
    - Boss #6
    - Versace Man Eau Fraiche

    Apart from Cipresso di Toscana, most scents from the Blu Mediterraneo product line by Acqua di Parma are have quite strong Mediterranean fruity notes and/or accords.

    Try Wild Aoud by Montale for fruity.

    Another vote for Byredo Pulp.

    I also find Din Dan to be by far the most satisfying citrus, but like all citruses, it fades away.
