I can't say much about the Caron question. In general, Caron's scents are a bit
daring, even if intended for men. I am hesitant to wear any women's/unisex Caron
besides Poivre / Coup de Fouet.
Bandit is one I enjoy, but mostly privately. To me this is a strange hybrid of
floral and leather notes. Femine and masculine at the same time. I'm reluctant
to wear it to work very often, as it just seems a bit odd. But, it is strong and
well-made, and sometimes I'm in the mood for it -- though mostly it's a private
I have the EDP. Other threads have analyzed the differences with the EDT. Do
a search on Bandit EDT. Regardless of which one, this will be an odd but strangely
pleasant experience, I think.
The real kicker would be to smell this on a woman. I expect not many modern
women will want to wear this in public. A film noir femme fatale scent, that yet
works on a man -- but barely.
