If you want a fruity fragrance which is light and unimposing, it’s hard to go wrong with something from Jo Malone. They aren’t known to have the best performing scents, but that is exactly what some want, for multiple reasons.
As the name goes, this perfume has blackberry and bay leaf, obviously. Grapefruit, cedar, vetiver, and a mix of floral notes are the ingredients to this.
This is a feminine scent by intention, though the actual fragrance can lean unisex.
For a Jo Malone perfume, this one lasts a bit better than expected. It does about six hours, but the problem is how close it sits. This is an intimate scent and you really need to get in close to smell it.
In a way, that works for it. Such a sweet juicy fragrance has a sensual appeal when you have to move in really close to pick up on it.
In the case of this fragrance, it doesn’t just smell like a bunch of fruits clashing together. The cedar and vetiver add the scent of a forest, with the earthiness that they possess.
Season: Spring, summer
Signatures: Fruity, green, aromatic, soft spicy
Keywords: Natural, vintage, wild, raw
Launched decades ago in 1983, L’Ombre Dans L’Eau may be a mouthful for those who aren’t well-versed with French. This comes in a simple flacon that won’t make you look twice.
The translation for the name of this perfume is ‘the shadow in the water’, which is quite a dramatic title for a fruity perfume. It is a feminine scent too, so we were excited to see whether it could stay lady-like while staying true to the darkness of its name.
The choices here are mostly plant-based, with blackcurrant and its leaf, rose, cassis, bergamot, and orange taking leading roles. Ambergris and musk are present too.
This is one of those polarizing fragrances, thanks to its relatively dated formulation. It smells less modern than other fruity offerings that can be purchased these days.
It is also very ‘green’, which is something we feel might drive others away too. That raw, natural smell of crushed leaves is there, but it is made interesting by the sweetness of blackcurrant and citrus on top of it.
We’d disagree that this is a feminine fragrance. This can easily be worn by anyone.
Signatures: Fruity, rose, citrus, green
Keywords: Elegant, mature, modern, feminine, rough
Amazone is far from a new fragrance. The original fragrance was launched way back in 1974 and given new life in 1989. That DNA persists in this modern version of the scent, launched in 2014.
This is meant to be unapologetically feminine, while remaining dominant and powerful like an Amazon warrior. The flacon is bold and strong too. We’re fans of that design.
There are a number of notes in this, with the top dominated by fruits. There is heavy citrus influence from lemon, bergamot, mandarin, and grapefruit. There is also red currant and the leaf of black currant.
The middle has general floral notes and rose, paired with blackberry and raspberry. The base, as tends to be the case, strays from the formula with woody notes, vanilla, and amber.
Our favorite thing about how this scent plays out is the characteristic of its sweetness. It’s not overwhelming juicy brand of sweet. Instead, it is this rough, natural sweetness. Like what you’d expect to taste of berries in the woods.
This lasts quite well, over six hours on the skin, though projection isn’t as admirable. There’s a mature femininity to this scent that is bound to go down well for older women.
Season: Summer, spring
Signatures: Fruity, aromatic, green, citrus
Keywords: Elegant, youthful, beautiful, unique
From the same nose that brought you Rose Amazone just above, comes In Love Again by YSL. This was first launched in 1998, so it is a persisting perfume.
The notes are clearly a mix of floral and fruity, though the latter dominates considerably more. The dominating note here is grapefruit, which shows in the top and middle notes.
Also strong is the blackcurrant, which pairs nicely with blueberry, vodka, and apple, which share space with it in the top of the formulation.
The middle notes have grapefruit joined by the only two floral scents, rose and water lily. The base uses tomato, which is an unusual choice, and that is paired with blackberry, sandalwood, and musk.
This is a gorgeous scent. The fruits blend very beautifully, and the grapefruit adds a nice touch of bitterness. This is an elegant perfume, and we feel it doesn’t get the love it deserves.
This is a perfume capable of making you fall in love again, and again, and again, with it.
Signatures: Citrus, aromatic, fresh spicy, green
Keywords: Mature, suave, classy, pleasant
Mandarino di Amalfi Acqua goes for an exclusively aquamarine-toned flacon in the typical Tom Ford shape. We’re fans of sticking to a particular style of casing. It makes it impossible to miss.
This is meant to smell like the cliffsides of Amalfi in Italy, and while we might not be able to tell you how accurately it hits that mark, the ingredients in the formulation are enough to convince us they are trying hard to replicate it.
There are too many notes in this to list, with the total being 21. The top is a mix of herbs and citrus, with mandarin, grapefruit, mint and tarragon appearing.
The middle is packed, using a number of spices such as black pepper, coriander, thyme, basil, and clary sage, in addition to wildflowers and lemon leaf oil.
The base is the rougher part of the composition, with vetiver, civet, musk, amber, and labdanum.
Despite launching in 2017, there’s something retro feeling about this. This might have something to do with how gentlemanly it feels, like something suave older men have been wearing for decades.
Longevity is just about average with this, going as far as six hours, but projection is strong for only about the first two. This is worth reapplying in the middle of the day though.

The color scheme for the flacon of Lost Cherry was what really drew us in. That crimson is a shade that catches the eye nicely and we had to hope that this would be a fragrance worthy enough to sit on our shelf.
This scent is intended to be a sweet experience on the outside, with the sex appeal hidden beneath. It is meant to be a balance between those two sides of a person, whether man or woman.
The notes are as exotic as you’d expect from a fragrance trying to hit that kind of mark. Sour cherry is a prominent top note, with bitter almond and liquor alongside it.
In contrast to those, sour cherry is joined by the sweeter natures of plum, Turkish rose, and jasmine sambac in the heart. The base is packed, but earthier scents like vetiver, cedar, and patchouli, dominate there.
Imagine that youthful fun of a cherry cola. Then as you begin to indulge yourself in it, a sinister booziness creeps out, turning it into something more mature and daring. That’s what this is.
The fruitiness is front and center, but the liquor comes in and makes you want to breath it in forever. Being a Tom Ford fragrance, that might not be possible for many people considering the heavy price.
Season: Winter, fall
Signatures: Sweet, fruity, cherry, vanilla
Keywords: Playful, friendly, youthful, feminine
Ah, celebrity fragrances. These are some of the most hit or miss scents that you can find. You can definitely find some very unique perfumes in this section, but at the same time, very generic ones.
The flacon for this isn’t one to earn multiple glances, being a sapphire-toned orb with little gems like her other scents. There’s no prominent branding on this either.
The top notes here are fruity — plum, sour cherry, and raspberry. The middle is exclusively floral, with orchid, iris, and freesia. Then, the base is vanilla, amber, and musk.
If you love sweet, fruity fragrances, without any of that overwhelming darkness to them; if you want to smell youthful and friendly and carefree, then Midnight Fantasy is one way to go.
This is a sweet fruitiness, with just a little sour from the cherry, and as it dries down, the cream vanilla becomes evident.
We are fans of this especially considering how affordable it is and how good the performance is at that price. You won’t need to deliberate for hours on whether you should pull the trigger. Just do it!
Season: Winter, fall
Signatures: Fruity, rose, sweet, vanilla
Keywords: Mature, dark, feminine, lovely
The Avon Imari fragrances have been around since 1985, but Imari Elixir is a new edition to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the line. It comes in a modern and classy flacon with a black cap and black panel on the front.
This is a fruity-floral perfume, with blackberry, green apple, and mandarin orange at the top, and rose, ylang-ylang, and jasmine in the middle. The base is made of vanilla, red amber, and patchouli.
Like an elixir made from the fruits in the top notes, you get a scent which is fruity and sweet, but has a dark maturity afforded by the blackberry. It is quite like a rich jam.
Longevity is no problem here, as this perfume lasts about eight hours or more. It is very affordable and provides quite stunning performance for what you pay.
This scent is sophisticated and mature, and if you want a feminine fragrance that gives you a dark fruity vibe, then it is hard to go wrong with Imari Elixir. This will be a winner on fall evenings.

D&G’s The One comes in a cuboid flacon with a flatter gold cuboid making the cap. This is one of their most popular feminine fragrances, using mostly notes from fruits and flowers.
This fragrance is for the elegant, high-performing, beautiful woman. One who wants to draw attention with how exceptional she is. This fragrance is for exactly that.
The top is sweet, with peach, litchi, mandarin, and bergamot providing for a fruity opening. In the middle, you’ll find the white floral notes dominating with lily, jasmine, and lily-of-the-valley. Plum is also in the heart.
The base is just vanilla, amber, musk, and vetiver.
This is one of those quintessential women’s fragrances. Not only has it persisted through 2006, but it is a scent that you can wear almost anywhere at any time, though it shines the most in the colder seasons.
This will easily last the whole day and its sillage is equally admirable. For an all-day fragrance that performs well for the price, this is The One.
This is an elegant feminine fragrance, which it timeless. If you want to buy blind, then this is one of the better choices to purchase.

Daisy Daze looks like a fun time. The flacon has this translucent pastel finish to it, and it gives the impression of a youthful, bubbly perfume.
Daisy Daze is by no measures a veteran in the perfume market, having only launched in 2019. It is one of those scents that goes very uncomplicated with its notes.
The singular top note here is mandarin orange, giving that sweet, citrus kick that a lot of scents depend on. The middle is mirabelle, which is a less popular note and a lesser-known fruit in general.
The base is musk alone, which is an interesting choice for a feminine perfume with so few notes. It is a little amusing how a perfume named Daisy is devoid of any floral scents.
The opening here is pure sweet orange, and it is an absolute winner if you’re into those kinds of fragrances. Mirabelle is more of a minor player here as it just adds character to the mandarin.
As the scent dries down, the musk comes in, nice and soft.
The performance on this isn’t exceptional and is just a tad below average, lasting about 5 hours maximum. It projects softly, which we find fitting for a sweet fragrance like this.
Time: Day, night
Season: Winter, fall

Viktor&Rolf BonBon comes in a cute bottle shaped like a wrapped bonbon. The stiff label of the house sticks out from the neck, just in case you weren’t sure which company you were dealing with.
This is a feminine fragrance which mixes fruits and florals to end up with something of a gourmand scent, thanks to caramel being the key note.
The top is all sweet, with mandarin, orange, and peach starting the fragrance off strong. In the middle, the prominent caramel resides, flanked by the white floral notes of orange blossom and jasmine.
The base is woody, with cedar, guaiac wood, sandalwood, and amber.
The longevity is excellent, lasting seven to eight hours at a go, which is enough to get you straight through a workday. It’ll shine pretty well in those colder months too.
Despite all the citrus in the opening, this isn’t too sharp as it starts up. It is a juicy, feminine, sweetness. It is the kind that works great for a date because of how delicious it smells.
Season: Winter, fall
Signatures: Sweet, fruity, warm spicy, caramel
Keywords: Mature, sophisticated, unique, strong
This diamond shaped flacon is unusual because of its asymmetry. It is not truly asymmetrical, but with the way it is meant to rest on the surface, it becomes that. It makes this stick out nicely. The satin bow on the neck is cute too!
This is a clear gourmand fragrance as is obvious from the flavors present through its formulation. This feminine fragrance is referred to as a ‘love potion’ by the perfumers behind it.
The top notes are pear, tangerine, and bergamot. The middle adds more fruits with strawberry and passionfruit, while giving vanilla orchid and black rose the chance to add some floral influence.
The base is where things get sweet with an array of scents. Praline, caramel, coffee, licorice, and vanilla are the more dessert-like notes here. There a few more at the base which add some variety to the fragrance.
This feminine fragrance is syrupy sweet and is great for those who love heavy gourmands. This is perfect for the colder months exactly because of that.
When it comes to performance, this is excellent too. It will easily last a day. This is a dark, smoky, gourmand, and will be perfect for the mature woman or someone looking for something different.
