Best Mango Perfumes
The multi-faceted mango has much to offer our senses. From its voluptuous shape, delicious flesh, and delightful aroma the beautiful fruit radiates happiness. Mango is often used in perfumes, in a supporting role, but when it is you feel its presence right away. Mango perfumes can smell ripe, sweet, and juicy or very green and leafy. Mango works especially well when it is blended with tropical, floral, fruity woody, and spicy notes.
Montale Mango Manga
Montale Mango Manga perfume was first launched exclusively in Japan, as the name suggests, in 2005 where it was incredibly popular. In 2010, Mango Manga was marketed worldwide. Manga is the Japanese style of comic books and explodes with bright colors as does Mango Manga. Here mango has the starring role and is at its juiciest and fruitiest. Harmonizing with orange water and jasmine, Perfumer Pierre Montale paired tropical ylang-ylang with a hint of the House’s signature oud for one of the best Mango perfumes around.
Key scent notes: mango, orange zest, jasmine, ylang-ylang, neroli, oud, vetiver, cedar musk
Paco Rabanne Fame
Was it the Mango top note that helped Paco Rabanne Fame win two 2023 French Fragrance Foundation Awards on June 8, 2023. Fronted by actress Ellie Fanning, Fame was released in 2022 and is the most modern mango perfume to date. Very popular with Gen Z and Millennials, it is created with a high percentage of eco-friendly and the award-winning gold chain mail bottle features an integrated NFC chip which gives consumers to access digital content. Fame is an easy to wear, playful mango perfume with a tropical vibe that combines creamy vanilla, airy jasmine with a trail of light incense at the dry-down.
Key scent notes: citrus, neroli, jasmine, ginger, cedarwood, patchouli, and amber
Kenzo Jungle Elephant
Kenzo Jungle Elephant contrasts significantly with Kenzo’s minimalist fragrance style. It’s an extravaganza full of life, complexity, and aroma. Perfumer Dominque Ropion combines a kaleidoscopic mélange of spices, plums, and orange with green mango and tropical ylang ylang. In India there is a drink called a mango lassi which is made with yoghurt, orange, and cardamom. Kenzo Jungle Elephant is the scented equivalent… but instead of taking a sip, you spritz.
Key scent notes: mandarin, cardamom, clove, ylang-ylang, licorice, patchouli, vanilla, and amber
Calyx by Clinique
Calyx by Clinque is equal parts, mango and grapefruit. This mango perfume created by the renowned perfumer Sophia Grosjman might just be the one of the best green mango perfumes of all time. Surprisingly clean and fresh, grapefruit and green leaves balance the exotic tropical fruity guava, passionfruit, and papaya with green florals. Calyx uses a special fruity accord, and the perfumer Sophia Grosjman was quoted as saying Calyx is “crazy, very wild and it opened a whole new category of fragrances.”
Key scent notes: grapefruit, mandarin, passion fruit, guava, papaya, jasmine, rose, lily, oakmoss, and vetiver
Kilian Moonlight in Heaven
Mango and coconut shine the brightest in Kilian Moonlight in Heaven. Creamy coconut and milky rice along with citrus and spice, add sparkle to this juicy mango perfume that smells like a tropical paradise after the sun has set. Vetiver adds a touch of coolness like a canopy under the midnight stars.
Key scent notes: lemon, grapefruit, pink pepper, coconut milk, rice, mango, tonka bean, and vetiver
Hermes Un Jardin Sur La Nil
Master Perfumer Jean-Claude Ellena created Hermes Un Jardin Sur Le Nil after traveling to Egypt and wanting to bottle the beautiful scents he encountered on his journey. Un Jardin Sur Le Nil opens with a prominent mango note that is delicious and green. As you sail down the river, lotus flowers float by as cypress and mango trees waft their aromas as incense swirls in the warm breeze.
Key scent notes: green mango, lotus, grapefruit, calamus, sycamore wood, incense, and carrot seed
Xerjoff Cruz Del Sur Ii
From the niche brand, Xerjoff Cruz Del Sur Ii is a rich juicy mango perfume that makes your mouth water. This tropical mango perfume is rich with fruit surrounded by green…florals, jungle leaves and the earthiness of vetiver. Luxurious, fruity and decadent.
