    Default Any masculine cherry or dark violet fragrances?

    Anything out there similar to Tom Fords Black Orchid & Black Violet or Armani Privee Cuir Amethyste? Would appreciate it if someone knew, and if not maybe the similar vibes to the after mentioned fragrances but in dark cherry that could be easily pulled out by a man ?

    I can recommend couple of them, some notes are similar to the ones you mentioned. These fragrances are unique:

    Santal Carmin by Atelier Cologne
    Brioni For Men Eau de Toilette

    Bogart pour Homme
    People say it smells like cherry pipe tobacco, I don't get tobacco from it at all though. Smells like cherry cordial chocolates. Fresh, aromatic, syrupy, projects well and lasts all day, and very few people know of it.

    Thanks for the suggestions so far.

    Serge Lutens Chypre Rouge - I don't recall sampling this so I'll def give a sample test.
    Bogart pour Homme - I'm hesitant on this, is it noticeably too synthetic?
    Knize Ten - Always heard good things about this, haven't gotten around to sample it yet, adding it to the sample list.

    I'm curios if someone has sampled Bloody Wood from Les Liquides Imaginaires and their take on it? I hear it has a prominent cherry note and woody note to it.

    Bloody Wood smelled vile to me. There may have been a cherry note but I couldn't get past the overall smell.

    M7 has a cherry tobacco/cough syrup note to it.
    Very clearly a case for corn flakes and classics

    I don't find it to be too synthetic. The opening has a lot of striking aromatic notes that are hard to place, that aspect of the fragrance could be called synthetic I guess. Drydown smells like buttery smooth vanilla, cherry, and patchouli.

    Worth mentioning that it's made by Maurice Roucel, if you're not already familiar with him he's very well respected for his work in both the niche and designer game. He's behind many beloved fragrances like Nautica Voyage, Rochas Man, New Haarlem, Kenzo Air, Hypnose Homme, Musc Ravageur, Iris Silver Mist.

    Synthetic or not, whenever I spray this stuff on, I cannot stop smelling my arm... It's so good.

    Yeah.. I've heard that too heh, but I figured it was worth a shot asking . Even the fragrance name suggest it could be a love or hate frag..

    I'm also looking at Ignite Boadicea the Victorious, but that house isn't entirely available in the US with the exception of Luckyscent and they are missing a quite a few from the line.

    If Zahd from Slumberhouse wasn't a limited edition with only 130~ bottles made than I would of start here but no.. I missed that train .

    Give Cruel Intentions a shot for the violet. Bear in mind that violet can be a polarizing note in general, though on me Cruel Intentions has elicited some very enthusiastic compliments.

    Yeah, this one I remember smelling. I want to add it to my wardrobe for sure, the price point is great just been delaying it for other fragrances but I likely get it before winter. .. Haven't tested it on my skin for longevity but the opening was really good IMO. I've had the chance to smell NR Him Bleu Noir & NR For Him Eau de Parfum Intense flankers.. The parfume intense I didn't care for it, likely b/c they stripped away the violet leaf from it. NR Nlue Noir was interesting but not as captivating as NR for Him ..

    Zahd by Slummerhouse - weird, artsy as some call it.
    Back to Black by Kilian - wearable - sweet tobacco, raspberry, cherry, and spices - smell "caliente".
    Dhan Al Oudh Al Nokhba by Rasasi - oud, strawberry, and spices - cheap but smell sexy.

    I will def give this a shot, it has been on my sample list for a while now. I'm sure AEDES will have this.

    Thanks, it has escaped my radar since its a new release but I'll check if Barneys has them in store.

    I think Bloomingdale/Lord and Taylor carries this, but not sure in-store. If I happen to be around one, I'll check. Thanks.

    I get a lot of cherry (as in rich cherry pipe tobacco) from Habanita, and agree with cacio that Knize Ten has a cherry-berry note on top of the rest of its wonderful accords (Luca Turin calls it strawberry, but that's not what I get - to me, it's more a cherry or raspberry note, noticeable without being overwhelming).

    (Edited to add: I know that Habanita is generally listed as a feminine fragrance, but I think it can absolutely be worn by men - aside from the questionable usefulness of gender distinction among fragrances, there is nothing girlie about Habanita.)

    Oops, I thought you said Pure Havane, not Pure Malt. Doh

    Don't get cherry from Pure Malt at all, myself.

    I always thought Pure Havane would be the flanker for cherry and tobacco. Pure Malt never gave me that impression.

    Agree, cherry note barely hangs around for 10 minutes, though.

    Yeah I got Pure Malt, and don't recall a cherry note.. then again I haven't worn Pure Malt in over a year.

    Do you have the EdT or the EDP Habanita? I'm intrigued by this one.
