    Question Unisex fragrance, Notes I love: Raspberry, Anise, Cinnamon (Suggestions?)

    Hi people,

    I'm looking to buy a designer fragrance, leaning quite heavily towards unisex. I'd like to add that in the Diesel Fuel for Life I had, I loved the raspberry and anise + I'm a big cinnamon fan. The fragrance I'm looking for does not need to contain ALL of these notes, but these are some scents I really really like.

    You know how some people dislike the opening in Dior Homme Intense (too feminine)? Well, I love the opening in DHI, I'm not afraid of a fragrance that could be perceived by some as a little feminine. I just really like sweet (yet sophisticated) scents. Hope you guys can help me out with names of some beautiful fragrances or maybe even masterpieces

    If possible, I'd like a fragrance with an above average longevity. Most fragrances fade away rather soon on my skin.

    If it helps, these are my current fragrances, I like them all, I adore DHI and Spicebomb:

    - Dior Homme Intense
    - Viktor&Rolf Spicebomb
    - Givenchy Pi
    - Mandarina Duck Man
    - JP Le Male
    - Roma Uomo

    I sampled this one the other day that has quite a bit of raspberry and some cinnamon. I thought it was very good.

    Perry Ellis M is star anise and cinnamon...and although not unisex at all to me, smells very good. Can't think of a scent off the top of my head with a good raspberry note. But sweet fruity frags I enjoy that would be unisex are:

    Black XS
    I Am King
    Euphoria Intense
    Jag Vision(just got this and loving the very sweet Pineapple!)
    Tous In Heaven
    And more masculine but still a good fruity, Mont Blanc Individuel

    I would also try Lolita Lempicka (for women), which has a fresh anisic top, and then some fruit and then a patch spicy drydown.

    Background by Jil Sander seems to be what would work for you IMO.

    For anise, I like YSL Opium PH, preferably the EdP. For cinnamon, try Costume National Homme. Both last all day on me.

    A good unisex-type raspberry is Eau de Frohliche by Erik Kormann, where it is combined with frankincense.
