Hmm. Interesting. I will have to get a sample. I had gotten the women's version when it came out because my Dad worked at IBM and they gave it away at their Xmas party as a prize. Lucky me! I still have the original black glass bottle with the topper.
A bit more sweet and tobacco and less soapy . In many ways it feels more like a feminine oriental than the marketed as women's version.
No, I never have, but I love the women's version. Is it similar?
Have you tried Opium pour Homme Eau De Parfum? It is very warm amber vanilla spices --at least to me.
