Thread: Mango

    Default Mango

    Why is mango so infrequently represented in perfuming? I don't mean that syrupy grocery store over-ripe whallop of a scent. I have in my memory paying a kid outside of Port-au-Prince to climb this huge tree and toss mangoes down to me. They smelled like the fuzz of a ripe peach with a light, fleeting, lemony citrus and something like plumeria. Not like aging plumeria flowers, but when you get a blossom on its first day. It's so vivid in my mind and I've been completely unable to make anything come close.

    It sounds like you are speaking of the smell of green mango. I get the same smell on my land in Brazil.

    Here in my city there are lots of mango trees, and I remember the scent since I was child.

    In my opinion, most commercial Mango fragrances does not look like the smell of the fruit I know. It's more grapefruit citrus than sweet mango scent.

    I live in brazil, and by coincidence my city is known as "Mango City"

    I'm so happy to find that someone else knows the scent I am remembering. If I can ever capture anything close to it in a bottle, I'll post it on here.
