    Default Cucumber-based frag ?

    Hi everybody,

    I'm seeking a dominant cucumber note especially for spring-summer time frags.
    Look after any recommendation.

    Bond No. 9 Wall Street is the most cucumber-centric scent I can think of.

    Not exactly a recommendation as I'm not that into it but CK One - Summer (2012 edition) has a cucumber note. Normally spray it lightly for use at the gym

    Any others?

    Eternity Aqua comes to mind first. Demeter has a solely cucumber scent, also if you have a Bath and Body Works near by....they have a melon/cucumber scent as well.(haven't tried these though) Also Gendarme Green might be worth a try also if its still available

    Abercrombie 41 is cucumber based.
    Expensive to find now, but great for summer, and stays out of the way in the heat.
    Never cloying.

    One of the Frank of Los Angeles fragrances has or had a distinctive cucumber note. It's not No. 3, which is a warm Fall/Winter scent. It's either No. 1 or No. 2. I have a sneaking suspicion, however, that No. 2 has been discontinued. I may be wrong about that, though.

    Actually, it is no 3. This one smells similar to RL Polo Blue, which also has a cucumber note. To my knowledge, no 1 & 3 are no longer in production. Only no 2 is avaliable now.

    PoloSport and Polo Blue?
    Cucumber is my least desirable note thus far.
    Funny, I kinda liked Wall Street.

    While uncertain whether it contains any actual cucumber notes, another fragrance from the CK One lineup, namely the initial, plain CK One EDT, has in my opinion something close to a cucumber smell in it.

    Unfortunately, extremely hard to find and ridiculously expensive if you can find it.

    Wall St. Used to have a bottle of this but the top broke. I waited a while before transferring the remaining amount to atomizers (10ml). Prior to doing so, I believe much of the alcohol evaporated. It's always been an "oily" fragrance, but it's very much so now to the point where it really doesn't spray out of the atomizers... it just sort of streams and I have to rub it in. Used to have a candle of this as well.

    Yes, precisely this, the unisex scent released long before its flankers.
