Trying to Transform a Female Fragrance

    Trying to Transform a Female Fragrance

    A lady kept coming into my store with "Villain by Ed Hardy" on.  I tried the male and female versions and only really cared for the female version.  I now own it, but it is blatantly female and has a rather sour hint to it.  I have added wood-smoke smelling cologne (from the Beckham series) with some luck, but I was hoping for some advice to overcome the sour note and perhaps transform it into something more masculine.  If you guys could offer some notes or fragrances that would compliment this rather fine fragrance, I would greatly appreciate it!

    My honest advice would be simply to find another fragrance that you truly like which doesn't have a lingering sour note, rather than trying to cover up a part of the original that you find distasteful. Just my take on it.

    I agree with hednic, sometimes some things are just not going to smell "right" on some people because of their own natural scent and skin chemistry simply not "working" with it - so enjoy that one on others but give up trying to make it smell "right" on yourself
