I agree, and with Midnight in Paris by Van Cleef & Arpels
, which does teeter on the feminine side, one cannot expect otherwise.
Moreover, just because a corporate decision is made to market it to men, it does not follow that it is per se
a masculine scent.
You choose to put your sexuality on display with your scent, hence, you reap what you sow.- - - Updated - - -
I think that it is kind of foolish to equate what a female does, in our society, with a corrsponding allowance or tolerance of what a male may do.
Women can wear dresses, trousers, suits, without flak, for the most part. However, a male, I believe, cannot get away with wearing what he wants, such as, wearing a dress, skirt or short shorts, without a judgment by others.
To think otherwise is evidence of losing touch with reality, despite protestations to the contrary.
