    Re: Any Men/Guys Wearing Fate Woman?

    Ha. I'm not sure which is more funny, Ken Cosgrove's comment or the fact that Ken Cosgrove is actually a woman. Draper would be stunned. Any female that wears an eyepatch is all right with me!

    Re: Any Men/Guys Wearing Fate Woman?

    Slightly feminine vibe but overall unisex and a great substitute for vintage Opium. Definitely try it again. Not an everyday frag for me but perfect for this time of year and winter.
