    The list is very long and I'll miss some for sure so here are a few that I wear...
    1. Cartier's Kiss Of The Dragon
    2. Bvlgari Blv ( Fantastic ).
    3. Eau des Merveilles by Cartier ( Wonderful ).

    Donna Karans Black Cashmere is one that I could wear.... Some may not agree with me on this one but I could wear Chance by Chanel.
    Kingdom by McQueen is one that comes to mind...this is just a few of many.

    Yes, definitely Black Cashmere and Paloma Picasso

    I'd also suggest Aromatics Elixir, Eau de Sud, Eau de Ciel, Bijan, Narciso Rodriguez, Yohji, Ambre Sultan, Helmut Lang, Acqua di Parma Lavanda Tonica, Coty Chypre, Villoresi's Yerbamate, Gap Grass, Mitsouko, Perry Ellis 360 Degrees, Coco, Demeter's Dirt, Aliage, Youth Dew, POTL's Luctor et Emergo, Long Lost Perfume's Anarchy (their version of Chaos), and oh heavens lots 'n lots more. Several of these are unisex anyway.

    Basically, whatever floats your boat - go for it

    Javanese Cananga Flower by I Coloniali - ylang ylang and amber, smooth and very sexy! Smells great layered with sandalwood, too.

    Grenades by Keiko Mecheri - a dry pomegranate

    Orange Leaves by L'Occitane - another sexy one (imo) nice for fall. Not sure if this is classified as women's, it could be unisex.

    Lavender by L'Occitane - lavender, verbena, sage with a tinge of vanilla on the bottom. Again, could be unisex. I think it smells better on men.

    I wear most of the "women's" scents that are on my wardrobe, from one time to the other, but i wear mostly men's scents more frequently...

  12. #42

    Default Re: Great women's fragrances for men to wear

    Fragrances that seem unisex to me: Mitsouko, Samsara, L'Occitane Neroli, Gres Cabochard, Aromatics Elixir, Agent Provocateur, Cuir de Russie, Coty Wild Musk, Omnia, NR for Her, Prada, Angel, most of the Rosines, every Yardley scent, every Guerlain AA, every Serge Lutens and L'Artisan ever created (even Tubereuse), and The Body Shop's Patchouli, Japanese Musk, Lemon Tea, Woody Sandalwood, Cinnamon Spice, Cosy Cashmere. Also anything from the "Invent Your Scent" range.

    I think anyone can wear a perfume regardless of which gender it's marketed towards because personal chemistry changes a scent. Also some perfume oils (Nemat) can be worn by anyone because there's no image attached to the product.

    There are so many. I am one who doesn't pay much attention to the male/female divide. Why not just dump him in Chanel 5 and get it over with.

    Default Feminines that could work as Masculines?

    I was wondering if anyone could suggest any feminine fragrances that could be worn quite comfortably by a man.

    I used to quite happily wear McQueen's Kingdom and was always complimented by women (not that I look for female compliments) when I wore it. I also adore Dior's Midnight Poison. The patchouli in this is pretty powerful.
    I've tried Chanel No. 19, and although I do like the smell, it doesn't suit me.

    I'm not telling you not to post your question, but I think there's like a 3-page thread of suggestions along this line. Regardless, there's nothing wrong with starting a new one.

    Some of the feminines I've worn and find to very unisex:

    Hermes Eau & Elixir de Merveilles, Hiris, Rose Ikebana

    Dior Diorella, Eau Fraiche and Addict (heavy vanilla)

    Chanel No.22, 5 Eau Premiere and Cristalle

    Susanne Lang Cashmere (most of her fragrances border on unisex)

    Many Bond 9s feminines are unisex (I'm wearing Nuits de Noho now)

    Juliette Has a Gun Lady Vengence

    Creed Vanisia (this is pretty feminine, but I love it)

    Helmut Lang EdP

    Guerlain Mitsouku

    I haven't worn it and have not tested it but I've heard many on here say D&G Light Blue...the female version is ten times better than the mens.

    There are so many - what effect are you going for?
    Fresh? Sultry? Unique? Subtle? Strong statement?

    I suppose I'm looking for something unique.

    Thanks everyone for your suggestions so far - can't wait to try some out.

    The jardins Mediteranee and Sur le Nil are marketed as femenine sents, but work for men IMO.
    Shalimar can be used by men.
    Opion for women is good too.
    Bodyshop White Musk.
    I liked Le Parfum de Thérèse
    Obsession Night for women.

    Here is the thread you were looking for Gblue:
    http://community.basenotes.net/showthread.php?t=211862

    I might add these to the list:
    Chamade (Guerlain)
    Must de Cartier (Cartier)
    Coco (Chanel) - Chanel calls this one an anti-floral because the floral components add tremendous richness but not the usual floral aromas. The base notes are tonka bean, patchouli, and opoponax. This is definitely an interesting one that men could wear. I have not worn it myself because I find it rather unemotional. Some men might consider this to be a good thing though.

    I would like to add Clinique's Aromatics Elixir, alongside the allready mentioned ones.

    Dior's Midnight Poison is kind of manly. As long as you can get past the grandma-smell factor of the flowers, you could get away with it.
