I'm not totally sure I understand the original question, but if I do, I think I disagree. I think I like the smell of female fragrance because I like it or even because of it's "femininity," not because of any masculine notes. In fact, I have never understood why the smell of flowers is considered feminine. I personally think that is ridiculous. Unfortunately men are cheated of so many good scents in their colognes and very few will wear women's. I think most men will not actually wear a "woman's" fragrance because of fear. The societal rules that enforce sexism and homophobia are still strongly at play in the lives of everyday people outside of the large metropolitan areas. It's interesting that you mentioned Right Guard. I can still recall smelling that in my high school locker room and finding it nauseating. Recently a guy at my gym was using it and I thought: doesn't he know that there are decent deodorants these days. If Right Guard is masculine, count me out!
