    Absolutely. My signature scent for a few years was Ralph Lauren Polo Black and on my skin it definitely smelled fruity, particularly to others.

    I also love bergamot and that's in a couple of fragrances of course

    A few of my other fragrances with noticeable fruit notes have been mentioned already including Egoiste, Allure Homme and Tuscan Leather.
    One that hasn't been, which I like in the spring and summer particularly as it has a really nice grapefruit note blended with bergamot is Eau Sauvage Cologne (with the white cap).

    I love the lemon in Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche, Pour Monsieur EDT and Guerlain Habit Rouge.

    I also have to give a mention to YSL Opium Pour Homme, which I've been wearing a lot recently.

    I detest fig and pear and peach. Kiste and Pear & Olive from Slumberhouse are nightmares to me.

    Fruit notes have to be incredibly well integrated into a fragrance for me to not mind them. Which is why I keep going back and forth in my feelings about Miyako.

    Fruit was a popular note and it still is

    Enjoy raspberry, blackberry, apple, fig, peach, plum, orange/lemon/grapefruit/bergamot, mango, cherry, pineapple, and coconut.

    Not the biggest fan of pear, even though they're one of my fave fruits IRL lol.

    Check out Ashoka by Neela Vermeire, it is the most beautiful, palpable fig combined with the highest quality sandalwood. Just thinking about it makes me want to wear it.

    Not if I feel like it leans feminine. I like Tuscan Leather raspberry and Eros apple. Beyond those I haven't found anything really to my liking. I have not tried Aventus, I have CDNM replacing the fruit with citrus (which I assume are exempt from the question). I have tried Rasasi La Yuqawam Tobbaco Blaze, which smells like slices of apricot in a dirty ashtray. Like the smell, not enough to buy a full bottle as 8 ml will last me forever. Definitely smells masculine to me though.
    not gonna do it

    I prefer apples and pears. Peach/nectarine notes I can take if done well. Cherry notes I just can't stand.
