For ages now, I've wanted perfume which has the scent of cucumber.

Any ideas please?

Think Jo Malone does Earl Grey and Cucumber. It's lovely.

The Library of Fragrance does one:

I've got the Jo Malone one and it would be perfect if it lasted more than half an hour! hoping someone recommends something similar.

That company - what's its name? Shay and blue or something. I think Marc Jacobs also did one.

Phaedon do a cucumber perfume called eau d concombre.Its a very aqueous refreshing cucumber with mint initially but as time goes on it becomes an increasingly piercing Freesia on my skin.

There was one in the Liberty advent calendar called OdeJo and it's seriously cucumbery - supposedly it also contains rose, lily and sea kelp (whatever that is) but the dominant note is definitely salad-based.

Marc Jacobs does one I think but never tried it

Have ordered OdeJo so will add my feedback too once it arrives (around Wednesday) Sea Kelp smells very cucumbery in perfumes so I'm hopeful smile

Does anyone remember New West by aramis? Never met a perfume to beat that one sadly. Smelt of the ocean, cucumber, tiny bit melony, little touch of floral to stop you smelling too much like a fridge....

I'm excited to try these. My favourite perfume of all time is CKOne Summer from I think 2012 which was melony and cucumbery but not really like a fridge at all.

Ooh, lovely. Why didn't I ask you before now? Thanks!

Shay and Blue do a cucumber and almond one. Available in M&S.

Elizabeth arden do one too, think it might be green tea and cucumber.

Was going to say Elizabeth Arden. It's lovely for summer.

TondelayaDellaVentamiglia Sun 26-Mar-17 18:44:46

yes...the Green Tea one is nice....been ages since I sniffed that. Trying to think where I last saw it on sale.

Maybe Superdrug or one of their ilk.

kazzymac Sun 26-Mar-17 18:45:55

Yes to Elizabeth Arden but I think it was a limited edition for the summer. I wore it as an everyday perfume through the summer and it was light and fresh

I have an Elizabeth Arden Cucumber scent. It's very light. It wasn't expensive eitehr.
