My Ten Favorite Fruity Perfumes

This is my last list of  summery themed perfumes, and I'm quite aware that many of the ones I chose are not exactly your typical light and cute hot weather fragrances. I tried, but while I love sweet perfumes I prefer them on the complex and even heavy side. I guess I prefer my fruit juice pulpy and with some spice.

Neela Vermeire-Bombay Bling. It's mango and it's gorgeous.

Jean Patou-Sira des Indes. Discontinued but still relatively easy to find. It's as tropical as they get, banana included.

Annick Goutal- Quel Amour! Red fruit at its best.

Givenchy- Hot Couture. Preferably in its original formula. Sweet sweet raspberry.

Guerlain- La Petite Robe Noire 2. Cherry, the Guerlain way.

Serge Lutens-Daim Blond. Apricot jam and suede.

Frederic Malle- Le Parfum de Therese. Peach and even melon. The last thing I thought I'd love to distraction, but here we are.

CB I Hate Perfume- Gathering Apples. Sweet red apples and wood.

L'Artisan- Ananas Fizz. Sadly discontinued. A pineapple chypre.

Serge Lutens/Shiseido- Feminite du Bois. The least summery in the group, but the ripe plum note has earned its place on the list.

  1. I'm unfortunate in that it seems as if every fruity perfume that touches my skin turns to Juicy Fruit within 5 minutes. I can do citrus, but anything else becomes an absolute atrocity. Although I must say, the CB I Hate Perfume with the apple sounds intriguing. I don't think I've slaughtered apples in fragrance yet. Thanks for the list!

  2. That's an intriguing list, I will have to try several there that I have never sniffed. My current favorite, and naturally discontinued, fruit-laden perfume is Patou's Colony. I am actually weird enough that pineapple and chypre sounded enchanting to me -- and it is. --annunziata

  3. One of my favorite fruity perfumes is the under-appreciated and under-mentioned Moschino Couture. Simple but difficult to improve upon.

  4. Fragonard's Etoile is my happy place (no matter where I am).
