  89. Re: What “feminine” marketed fragrance would you most like to smell on a man?

    Nothing gourmand or too floral, probably not even oriental, preferably not sweet and not too loud.

    I could go with Meharees by L'Erbolario and it would fit perfectly, but I'm not sure I will want to wear it in the heat. I can try though.
