The men's version comes in, like you said, a bottle that is wide rather than tall. It is rectangular with a big black plastic cap and it has green juice. You definately got the women's version. Just so you know, in the future, never trust SA's (sales assistants). They don't know what they're talking about. I have no idea if the women's version would work for a guy, but since you bought it already why not give it a test wearing around the house and find out? I'd say unless it has really heady florals then it could potentially work for you. Just so you know, you can get a 1.7oz bottle of the men's version of Envy from Scentiments.com for like $20 and it is a fantastic scent. Very fun to wear out on the town, you should check it out.
