Best almond fragrance

Though far more a sweet, spicy and/or nearly chypre exotic fragrance-Osmanthus by l'Erbolario is apparently very little almond based nor dominated yet ultimately quite nutty, oily and/or buttery once applied and gradually developing on skin, with the further upside of not breaking the bank either.

Among the costlier options that might still be worth the money, Siwa by Memo Paris-more like a vanilla-boozy niche style scent, yet also gradually with an increasing almond tone, but also the now discontinued Very Irresistible by Givenchy (thus counter-intuitive at first since pricey, male and hazelnut dominated at first, yet technically and in practice still quite unisex thanks to its almond like nutty development) can justify some (re) testing before considering a purchase.

Acqua di Parma Blu:Mediterraneo Mandorlo di Sicilia

Very good suggestion, in fact even Fico di Amalfi and other less almond and/or nutty dominated fragrances from this ADP scent range
might have just enough of this note type to qualify.

Also adding a further l'Erbolario suggestion among the inexpensive but still good performance quality EDPs covering this note quite well-
though All Olio di Argan might quite obviously suggest argan oil at first, its real mid and base note development is again even closer
to a walnut, hazelnut and especially almond unisex nuttiness.

Maybe not the best but still among the more outstanding in its price range.

+1 Louve
+1 Tonka Impériale
I also love Ava Luxe's Amande, Profumum's Alba and Confetto (though the latter has anise which I'm not a huge fan of), and Keiko Mecheri's Loukhoum (powdery!)
And then if you want something a little weird (and a personal favorite) Luctor et Emergo. Cherry almond.

100bon Tonka & Amande Absolue, is inexpensive and deliciously sweet but not cloying. Well blended IMO and 100bon use only natural ingredients.

There was an amazing almond fragrance that is no longer being made it was by castelbajac and it came in a red bottle. Amazing almond fragrance. I'm surprised no one mentioned it.
