I took a big chance on this - I have a boyfriend with a very choosy taste... Not only I bought anosmic on description, but also for another person (dangerous business....).
I examined the notes of the few perfumes he wore over the last 5 years, and then searched by notes.
This is a winner !!!! The lavender is very pronounced, and the combination of scents is fantastic, recommended for lavender-cinnamon-spice lovers.
** I would like to add - I do not differentiate frags to feminine or masculine, since on each individual skin (also depending on other variables) they smell different, I find it is the wearer that assigns the gender-accent (and flavor-accent) to a scent, once it combined with current skin chemistry and ambient conditions....
If you're a fan of Paco Rabanne's 1 Million and Diesel's Plus Plus then it's a safe bet that you'll be a fan of this. Inverse successfully combines the spicy, blood orange notes of the former with the fruity milkyness of the latter to create a great smelling budget scent. It's not a very masculine fragrance by any means though; so if you're only into macho powerhouses then this probably isn't for you.
I really love this scent. It is not masculine at all, and I would even dare to say that it is feminine but very very sexy. I also think it captures Kylie's character. It is not available here in the USA, but I was able to order it online from the UK. And it is nice that I can wear something that not everyone else is wearing.
It was a blind buy (the shop had no tester) and I didn't regret it.
At Rossmann it was on sale for 11 $.
Definitely a unisex fragrance. A real oriental but it's not heavy, just ambery sweet + remarkable cinnamon (without many citrus) and it ends powdery and lasts all day. On my skin it's very close to Gaultier 2 but a bit more masculine and more complex. I will keep it only for special occasion not for everyday 'cause it's very intimate, I think.
Kylie said: it's “for the men in my life, who, as you know are complex, colorful characters.”
It will be a Limited Edition,so it's worth to try.
At first whiff my reaction was ”A masculine? Are you kidding me?” Inverse has a very pronounced feminine touch, which actually is one of its great qualities once you accept it. The same goes for its very synthetic feel – this is not a classical symphony for your nose, it’s first rate techno dance pop and extremely enjoyable as such.
After the opening lavender blast has calmed down, you are ready to enjoy a wonderful milky/creamy sweetness that feels both warm and cold at the same time. Impressive. And no problems with longevity here – it easily lasts a whole evening on my skin.
I’m a big Kylie fan and Inverse catches her own image spot on, both in the packaging and the scent itself. Unpretentious and lovable regardless of gender, age and sexual orientation: ”Come on everybody, join the fun!”
A class act – especially for a celebrity scent. It smells expensive and sophisticated (but can be found extremely cheap), it’s unisex without being bland and I love it! Thumbs up!
