    Default Cherry or Blackberry Syrup?

    I have searched through the directory, and there are so many to choose from. I am searching for something that smells like cherry or blackberry syrup. I sampled Serge Lutens Boxeuses, but I thought it was too watery and powdery. I already love CK One Shock.
    Current favorites:

    CH Men by Carolina Herrera
    Bogart Pour Homme
    Black Vines by Kerosene
    Piment Brulant by L’Artisan

    Some dark scents like M7 (or even Knize Ten) have a big cherry note to balance the darkness of woods and leather.

    As for boxeuses watery, I hope it's not a reformulation... (powdery perhaps). I thought of it as Feminite de cuir (ie the candied fruits as in Feminite des bois, but then a light leather rather than woods).

    But also, any of those Guerlain Petite Robe Noire ones are checking out - one of them (sorry, can't remember which) is based on cherries - almost nauseatingly so....

    For sure.
