Recommend me a "white" and a juicy fruity frag?

I have my username for a reason, my favourite night out Fragrance is Joop Homme Wild, so don't feel your suggestions have to be the hautest of haute couture - I'm open-minded :)

I like to smell (very) unisex and I also love a fragrance that doesn't feel dry. It's also fair to say that a lot of my current scent wardrobe is gourmandy, eveningy or on the warm-and-dry side of oriental (big amber fan) and It'd be nice to expand a little. Trouble is I also have very dry skin so juiciness is often the first thing about a fragrance to disappear; I'd like to find some options that buck that trend, but my skin being what it is I may have to try something really quite unsubtle to achieve a good result.

First stop, something with lots of up-front fruit and juicy, wet deliciousness. Bonus points if all that lasts past the opening. Tom Ford Plum Japonais was terribly elegant and refined and I had to use a lot to get much plum out of it; it was mostly woods on me. The orange in womens' Dune is amazing but the scent is that bit too feminine to be wearable for me, and again it's rather "dry" in feel. Philosykos is next on my hit list, any other thoughts?

Second stop, something "white" and fresh/wet, even to the point of aquatic if necessary. Floral rather than soapy; I loathed Jaipur Homme. Creed Silver Mountain Water is amazing, but I can only wear it if I know I'm going to sweat because all the delicacy disappears into my desert of an epidermis. Fahrenheit 32 is lovely but dries down to mostly vanilla, which is a little too similar to the rest of my collection. Something with a touch of green in it somewhere is what I'm aiming for, I think. All suggestions welcome, I'm completely in the dark here.

Notes I'd like to avoid as far as possible: Heavy incense or woods, and the standard citrus/sandalwood "for men" base formula.

Hit me!
