She uses the original one made for women. Call me stupid, but I just wouldn't be inspired, to the wear the version they make for men howoever nice it may be. I bought Clinique Happy on Ebay because, I thought I knew it from a demonstration. That must have been the womens version, though. When I got my bottle it was not at all what I had expected. So I was disappointed. If in the bathroom my towel says 'for him' and another one would have 'for her' embroidered on that's ok ( and rather hypothetical
) . But it is at the limit of how practical I would ever want to be.
'Arpège for Men' - Lanvin marketers must have been ill advised! Arpège has been an icon of feminity for generations. I don't even want to know how the m-version smells.But for less traditional wearers I hope it is a good cologne with a decent masculine stamp.
That said - time for confession: My Eau de Rochas
(ideal for summer) is 'pour homme
' also, wonderful, and more refreshing than the sweeter women's version!

: I may be totally wrong, but I read it as 'smells like nothing', almost an olfactory blank. O3
, the molecule, can be smelled after a thunderstorm, or when you work at one of those (IBM) office copiers, or use and ultraviolet lamp.
