I would say that Habanita is definitely a unisex frag. In fact its opening notes are reminiscent of masculine classic Habit Rouge. The main difference seems to be that it is a bit more floral... but I appreciate the "pepperiness" of the scent as it opens, and the leathery nature of the scent as it dries down. Definitely useful as a unisex. If you have problems with the opening, just give it a little while before going out with it on.
