    Question Ongoing Search For A Tomato Leaf Dominant Perfume ?

    Any suggestions please ?

    I know Eau de Campagne from Sisley, Demeter Tomato Leaf, Les Belles de Ricci,but I'm look for something stronger, with more character.
    Is Essential from Lacoste worth investigating ?

    What About Adam was the best I came across, but it's almost impossible to find nowadays.

    Any Tomato niche fragrances ?

    Thanks for any help.

    Gardner's Glove by St Clair is fantastic but may not be as Tomato Leaf dominant as you might be looking for(as I don't know What About Adam). Worth a sample at least-- all her work is terrific.

    Yes.
    Smells a bit synthetic but it's nice and interesting, haven't smelled anything similar so far.

    Have you already tried Valentino Uomo Acqua?
    That one has notes of tomatoe leaf too.

    Have you tried Corsica Furiosa from Parfum d'Empire ? The green notes get described as tomato leaf, though I've not tried a direct comparison with the tomato plants in my greenhouse, and it didn't quite strike me as a real tomato leaf, which is a very distinctive smell.

    Couronne D'Italie by Gustave Eiffel Parfums has a prominent tomato leaf note IMO.

    This one is definitely my favorite. The tomato leaf is quite apparent. It's not for everyone, but I love it. Very distinctive and different.

    Bulgari pour Homme Extreme has a tomato leaf note that is distinct but probably not dominant.

    This would be my recommendation as well, at least to try. I've never liked it, ironically because of the tomato leaf note, but someone looking for that may appreciate it.

    Even if it is not mentioned in the olfactory pyramid, a tomato leaves note/accord is definitely present.

    Spezie by Lorenzo Villoresi
    It's in there with some other bolder notes like a cinnamon and cloves thing, so it definitely fits in with your requirements.

    To this point, did never find any options more credible, intense and complex than Eau de Campagne and surprisingly Italian Leather (though knowing this, would have never noticed much tomato leaf so far).
    Also seconding What About Adam, although this one is not niche still technically reaching niche priced but also niche quality beyond the limited availability after its discontinuation. Therefore still have to look for, without personally having found yet, more solid and approachable (niche) alternatives to these 3.

    ^^ This, without a doubt.

    I adore Corsica Furiosa, but it's far more "weedy/gorse" than tomato leaf, IMO.

    No doubt. The opening is photo-realistic plants and stems in the countryside. It's like being there.

    A huge thanks to everybody for the help !!!

    I am a big fan of Annick Goutal, so that will be high on my list of tries.
    I do already have the Addidas Moves and Trussardi L'Uomo, but find the tomato note very faint. L'Uomo is excellent though !!!
    I will check out all of the others and get back, but that may be quite a while re corona/ travel restrictions.

    Thanks again.
