    Any suggestions?

    Parfum de Nicolai Kiss me tender: almondy and fruity (though not too-in-your-face berry) - I'd compare it to one of those fluffy rococo pinks.

    And then there is the Coty Origan tradition, which includes also l'Heure Bleue. Except that l'origan doesn't exist anymore and L'Heure Bleue has been reformulated. There's a nice copy (of l'Origan) in the superexpensive Grossmith Shems el nessim, but it is really too expensive.

    Amore Mio by Jeanne Arthes has those exact notes you are requesting, but personally not familiar with it.

    For marzipan, Aqua Di Parma blu de Mediterranean Mandorlo. Mandorlo is 'almond' in italian I believe. The smell is almond, almond, with some vanilla. Very marzipan.

    For cherry, M7 Oud Absolu has a big slug of cherry over some smoky wood.

    Thanks guys. I've been doing a little research and they say YSL Body is quite marzipan. But no cherry though...

    Be sure to check out Mandorlo if you have the chance. I got a bottle a couple weeks ago, and it smells like nothing else in my collection. It starts out with a root beer-like note that dries down to a delicious almond vanilla. I think it's fantastic.

    Xerjoff Comandante is a great cherry scent. I also get a nice cherry in Mugler Pure Havane, which is also similar to the fore mentioned scent.

    Castelbajac (by Castelbajac) is a one to look into, if you can find it. Very sharp, almond/cherry scent, with a clean, warm laundry type base. It may have been too synthetically "fluffy" for most. Maybe that's why it's discontinued. I have it, but don't wear it much. I really like the bottle.
