    Default Unisex Scents That Lean Toward Masculine

    I partly depends on body chemistry, that's a given, but in your experience which unisex fragrances smell masculine on YOUR skin, and which ones just tend to smell too feminine?

    For example, I just can't wear ckOne because it just smells girly on my skin. LOL.

    how manly are you on a scale of 1-10... lol
    just kidding bro, ...hmm CK one girly...hmm..i thin you should try the dior dune for ladies...its more potent than the male version and fit the criteria of being unisex if a male wore it i dig it by the way...cant think of anything else...

    Hmm, well there are loads that lean both ways.. here are a few from my collection:

    Leaning to masculine:
    Bond 9 West Broadway
    Bond 9 Central Park
    Bond 9 Wall Street
    Creed Millesime Imperial
    Montale Black Aoud
    Tann Rokka Signature (Kisu)

    Leaning to feminine:
    Comme des Garcons Red Rose
    Bond No. 9 West Side
    Montale White Musk
    Creed Silver Mountain Water

    I'd stress though that labeling scents as masculine, feminine, or unisex is mostly just marketing. There are plenty of things that seem more commonplace in one classification or another, but much of it is marketing.

    Bvlgari Black is categorized as unisex but seems more masculine to me.

    IMO, Blu Mediterraneo Tuscan Cypress by Acqua di Parma is downright manly, though marketed as unisex. My wife & I bought it to share, but she doesn't wear it anymore because she thinks it smells too masculine.

    Here's a 3rd vote for Bulgari Black as being masculine. Also, Bulgari's other unisex fragrances are rated by myself as follows:

    1. Red Tea/masculine

    2. White Tea/ feminine

    3. Green Tea/feminine

    Cote Bastide Ambre
    L'Air du Desert Marocain
    MPG Racine
    Blue Amber
    Amber & Lavender
    Pomegranate Noir

    Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both and be one traveler, long I stood and looked down one as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, ...... I shall be telling this with a sigh somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -- I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference. - Robert Frost
