I do love Coco Noir and I was wondering if I'm the only thinking about wearing it in public when it's cold outside. :-)
I go for it, but present myself in public a half hour after the top notes dry down. Nothing to be in the closet about.
I find it very close to Black Orchid & Samsara. I'd also especially wear the original Coco more often, if only I were a bigger fan of the bourbon note I get, kinda like madmoiselle but lighter.
Most female orientals are fair game to me, for what it's worth, but you should be the type that produces a manly musk to pull off. I think this is the advice most overlooked when suggesting these fragrances to men.
If you the type of guy that doesn't emit any musky body odor scent (not talking extreme B.O here). Then keep away the female frags.
