I don’t have issues with fruity fragrances. I just have issues with finding fruity fragrances that I want to wear for more than an hour. I like the idea of them but get fed up with them rather quickly. However, there are a few that I could wear all day. Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier Fraiche Passiflore is one of those.
Fraiche Passiflore oepns with fresh stone fruits and berries. It reminds me of raspberries and apricots with an icy coolness. With time Fraiche Passiflore gets more tropical. It reminds me of passionfruit and mangoes with a creamy but sharp sandalwood. That’s most of the wear on me – creamy sandalwood with a breeze of ripe tropical fruits.
As far as really fruity scents go, I like Fraiche Passilfore. The woods balance while enhancing the creaminess of the fruits and flowers.
Notes listed include white peach, raspberry, tagette, passion fruit, jasmine, pimento, sandalwood, and musk. Launched in 1988.
Give Fraiche Passiflore a try if you like fruity fragrances. Or perfumes like CREED Spring Flower, Keiko Mecheri Passiflora, Neela Vermeire Creations Bombay Bling, Huitieme Art Manguier Metisse and/or Histoire d’Eaux Maladie d’Amour.
Projection and longevity are average.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – Creamy mangoes and creamy sandalwood. Yeah, yeah, note list says peach but in the fragrance it reads like mango to me. This is one of those fruit scents that I actually like to wear. It’s fruity but a little more sophisticated than the usual offerings.
