    Default Vetiver Geranium Unisex?

    SO - I almost trolled the female compliments thread but decided - not to ^_^ and instead post here:

    So, first, let me say my granny really liked vetiver geranium on me actually complimented today (troll part).

    But my actual question to you guys is - how unisex is this? I love the scent personally and may have been waiting for Creed to come out with a female Aventus (love the birch batches of 2013) which is one I could never wear myself...

    This (Vetiver Geranium) Im not so sure about - I keep going back and forward on it. My usual taste is TF Champaca Absolute and By Kilian Love/In the city of sin.

    All of which are... distinctly feminine. What is your take on VG being unisex? And maybe more importantly - could a woman pull this off or would it just be odd/out of place.

    Default Vetiver Geranium Unisex?

    As a big fan, I'd say it's on the masculine side of unisex. I think a female could definitely wear it, though.

    VG is less feminine (more unisex) than BK Love which is less feminine than TF CA.

    A little more masculine than unisex, but if you enjoy it, wear it.

    I think it would be fine for you.

    I don't really think of it as very masculine. I think it is right down the middle personally, so if you decide you like it, certainly give it a go.
    Seasonal favorites:

    1. Creed - Spice & Wood
    2. Creed - Aventus
    3. Ormonde Jayne - Black Gold
    4. by Kilian - Incense Oud
    5. Puredistance - Black
    6. House of Matriarch - Blackbird
    7. Armani Privé - Oud Royal
    8. by Kilian - Cruel Intentions
    9. Creed - Royal English Leather
    10. Brückner - Aoud 1

    To be honest, I felt this one was more masculine than feminine until my wife wore it. I noticed the citrus and florals upfront first, but the drydown was still rather masculine to me.

    It's a truly unisex scent to me; enjoy it if you have it. I'm still a fan, but finding myself liking Aberdeen Lavander more - which is also unisex as much as Vetiver Geranium in my humble opinion.

    Thanks for the opinions guys I do think its rather unisex, touch masculine - Ill be wearing my sample and hopefully I'll know what to do when its gone.

    Ps. Great longevity even in cold Belgian weather, one of the reasons I'm considering it again, not many "freshies" can do that lol.

    Smells great, but definitely masculine to my nose. This one is like Bal d'Afrique, which gets very masculine on the dry down.
