    Nice! Although it is quite masculine, I can also see a woman wearing it if worn lightly (on the right woman). Beautiful scent. What type of application would you recommend for optimal performance? Do...

    Ok. Those are on my list of "to try" then. I think they sell samples on their website for 4-5 bucks each...I may order 2 or 3.

  8. Ladies, what are you favorite fragrances for men?

    Particularly niche/exclusive. I would like to purchase a few that are definitely loved by females!

    Any thoughts on Aventus, Green Irish Tweed, Guerlain Derby, and Arsene Lupin?

    Thanks!
