    Talking Watermelon fragrance recommendations?

    Hey all, I don't suppose anyone knows of any fragrances with a watermelon note? Could be fine fragrance, body spray, room spray - I don't mind

    I've never come across one, so I'm hoping someone among you all has!

    Mezzanote by Galimard is one I enjoy.

    To certain extents, do subjectively and personally get quite convincing watermelon notes from Acqua di Gio by Armani and from Royal Water by Creed.

    But if wanting to go even more inexpensively with almost equally credible rendition of a natural, zesty, fresh, pleasantly relaxing and energetic watermelon smell there is also the body spray and/or hair mist (not hair spray per se, far more with a scenting than a hair styling/care/cosmetic function) by Alverde, an upmarket organic in house brand of German cosmetics retailer DM and/or from its even more affordable brand Balea.

    Lanvin Modern Princess Blooming has a very convincing watermelon impression - sweet, juicy, refreshing and summery.

    If you're just looking for a quick and easy body spray, B&BW surely has a watermelon scent. I dated a girl that used to wear a watermelon scent from there but they usually change their scents up every season, so I don't know if they still have it.

    Shay and Bue Watermelon. The watermelon note is short lived though.

    If you don't mind salt, Creed Millesime Imperial is a good choice.

    The only watermelon vibe in a fragrance that I own is Michael Jordan 23. It's simple, but refreshing. Rarely use it though.

    Does anyone here feel EROLFA is a watermelon scent or just a regular melon scent?

    Interesting to see so many people mention Millesime Imperial. I don’t get watermelon from this one. Maybe it’s a batch thing, or perhaps me being fooled by the absence of watermelon in the note list. Maybe it’s just a case of us perceiving the same stuff differently.

    Interesting, I get melon from Acqua di Gio, but definitely not watermelon! I wore that one throughout the late 90s and early 00s

    Thank you! I just took a peek at the notes and I must say, I'm intrigued (and slightly perplexed!) by the idea of apple, lavender, woods, amber and watermelon all in one place. I think I have to look into getting hold of a sample

    I find it a wonderful scent. If you like the original, try the Profumo flanker as well - you may end up liking it more. Not sure I get that much melon in the Profumo but I do see it in a different way each time I west it. It is a superb revision to an existing legend.

    Take a sniff of the relatively inexpensive and less popular Ralph Lauren Blue EdT for men. Very fresh and fruity and in fact suitable for all year round use.
