    I like Cereus No. 4's apple note. It's a GREEN apple note and very nice and refreshing....for warmer weather especially.

    Cereus colognes used to be $125.00 a bottle. Actually they still are on Luckyscent. http://www.luckyscent.com/shop/secti...No%2E%5F4.html

    But the last I heard, people were selling them on eBay for a little more than nothing. Not sure what's happened to the house, but it's still my favorite apple.

    Dunhill Desire for Men and Hugo Hugo Boss are both apple centric. Both last a long time.

    If you want straight up apples and that's about it, you can't go wrong with CB I Hate Perfume Gathering Apples...it's apples, apples, some apple treeish notes, apples, a little more apples, and the smell of the straw basket that they were gathered in!! It's awesome, incredibly realistic, and super refreshing.

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    This is pretty good too:


    l'Artisan DÉLIRIA

    http://www.artisanparfumeur.com/shop...a-1105039.html

    Prepare to be thrilled.
    Your senses will be shaken into a delicious blur.

    Déliria is the fantastic contrast between metallic, rhum and gourmand notes of toffee apple and candy floss.

    Top and base notes lose themselves in the heart of the fragrance in a dizzying cloud.

    Matriarch's Sacre Tabac might be worth a sniff: http://www.matriarch.biz/products/sacre-tabac-sucre

    It's an apple shisha though rather than straight-up apples.

    I really dig Slumberhouse's Grev, but the apple in that is pretty blended with orris, clove, pine and some other craziness.

    Thallium Black. The price won't hurt your pockets either.

    Both Be Delicious and Red Delicious do a great apple note, but it's a bit more on the synthetic side. Nicole Miller for men does an outstanding fresh apple note (mixed with leather), smells natural, and is dirt cheap. I think it's the best apple note I have smelled.
    My Ultimate Top 5:

    Fahrenheit (1988)
    Paul Smith Man (2009)
    Burberry London (2006)
    Prada Amber pour Homme (2006)
    Arpege pour Homme (2005)

    It's not the best by any means, but I actually enjoy Tommy Man's "apple pie" note.

    For a prominent and lush apple note, check out Assolo (yeah, I know...) by the Italian brand Cale Fragranze d’Autore

    I'm not sure why a grown man would want to smell of apples but many people (not me in particular) describe Caron's L'Anarchiste as having a bit of an apple vibe.

    I'm with you there, i.e why you would want to smell like that all day

    I disagree with L'Anarchiste though -- it always reminds me of the smell of blood oranges.
