    Default Dried fruits and Dates note

    Hi,

    I’m looking for a masculine fragrance with lots of dried fruits note including preferably dates note. Any good suggestions?

    Although the note list doesn't indicate it, I got a big dried fruits vibe from Lalique Ombre Noire.

    IMO,

    Hands down!!!, it's Costume National Homme. Smells exactly like the dried fruit in trail mix along with a lavender+mint. Many report smelling a fig accord (I smell it) despite not being listed on the official note listing. It's a linear scent that doesn't really change much. The opening is a bit sharper than the dry-down, but it's the same scent whether just sprayed on or dried down, just a slightly different 'effect' from opening to close. This fragrance smells like "happiness". It's a very uplifting scent for me. It's a 10/10 fragrance in my opinion. It 'should' be in most people's collection.

    Based on your description I believe strongly that this is the fragrance you're looking for.

    I enjoy Desert Suave from Les Liquides Imaginaires

    A good date scent

    Heeley Phoenecia does dried fruit and dates best for me, without too much distraction from other notes. There is some fresh clean vetiver to give everything some lift, but otherwise its dried fruit goodness through and through

    Came here to suggest the John Varvatos range. Specifically the original (black bottle with leather wrap-around) and Vintage as well.

    Another one you could look at that may not be so obvious is Alexandria by Xerjoff, if the oud is not a problem for you.

    Also adding ADP Fico the Amalfi, however more off topic since having rather a fig note, same with vintage Globe by Rochas and also most of the unisex Lubin EDP (however still very appropriate for masculine wear) if dried fruits with a boozy undertone are sought for and the main focus

    Imagine buying a bottle of Fragrance One Date for Men, and it just ended up being the smell of dates.
