Thread: Melon for the summer?
Bond no.9 Wall Street has an excellent melon note - but then a wet dog may show up and jump all over you. Definitely test before you buy!

While Millesime Imperial is best when it comes to melon, Heeley - Figuier has a distinctive melon note.
The most obvious choice - MI - has been beaten to death already.
Considering the price constraint, by far my fave for a cheap melon would be Polo Blue. It's $40.15 on Fragrancenet for a 2.5oz.
The melon is a non-descript, generic melon, but I'd call it closest to watermelon to my nose, Like most melon fragrances, longevity is short but it's quite pleasant, if a little mainstream-smelling, for that duration. Pretty ideal for Summer casual and post-gym wearing.
In the proposed price range, this is my choice.
A melon note is featured in CK One Summer '14, but not too prominent. The fragrance itself it unisex
I think lacoste essential has a melon note. And surprisingly playboy Miami has a nice watermelon note that lasts for a bit.

Joop Splash. It's melon overtop an aquatic base
It can be found cheap at Wal-Mart
Kenneth Cole Reaction is nice, but MI is amazing!
Never knew there was so much MI love here. I love it too and will be my SOTD most of next week. I get good longevity, around 6 hours and its never overpowering, just understated sophistication.
Givenchy Insense ultramarine, ADG, MI
L'Artisan Fleur de Liane
Such a green melon-y scent.
Is is just me, or does Nautica Voyage have a bit of a melon vibe?
I bought a small bottle for $5.99 at Ross just to check it out, it's a decent summer fragrance. And I sort of thought "cantaloupe" when I wore it....
Yep, Millesime Imperial is just a gorgeous scent. You won't get much better than MI if you want melon. It smells so damned good.
Paris Hilton for Men is a good one. Also Jordan 23 is pretty decent.
My Ultimate Top 5:
Le Vetiver Itasca (2010)
Burberry London (2006)
Eau des Baux (2006)
Arpege pour Homme (2005)
Herrera Chic for Men maybe as a cheaper alternative.....

Melon in IU is fresh and like the melon peel, in Chic its sweet like the pink part of the melon.
