This is the Horned Cucumber from Africa. It tastes like cucumber. So you can have it as a veggie or a fruit.
I scooped out the pulp, blended it with Vietnamese orange juice, then add melon jello with it to make a dessert.
Here is the fruits and my botanical painting of Kiwano.

Borneo 1834 by Serge Lutens
It is a very dark and strong fragrance. Smell like an ancient temple for me. Patchouli, camphor and cacao as mysterious as the Indonesian shadow play. A very different scent for me.
Now I have 3 unique different scents:
Datura Noir: intoxicating
Borneo 1834: mysterious
Fleur de Liane: wet rain forest feel

I finally found a place in Vancouver to have the perfume that I was looking for. A lot of exclusive perfumeurs brand.
I bought the new one from L'Artisan Perfumeur called Fleur de Liane. It based in woods and grasses with some white flowers and very light scents. It is very comfortable to wear, not heavy at all.
I am already using Serge Lutens' Datura Noir which is heavy in Datura intoxiating scent mixed with coconut.
I bought a new one called Borneo 1834, nice one quite beautiful, no coconut but still tropically composed.
