    Default Bulgari Omnia - Could a man pull it off?

    My question to forum - gentleman.

    Definitely. It is so strikingly unsweet for a female fragrance that I wonder why Bvlgari didn't label it as unisex. Spicy bitter orange with light musks. Go for it.

    I agree.
    Whilst the white chocolate gourmand notes tend to dominate on a woman's skin, I find the semi-spicy citrus accords shift to the fore on mine.

    Never smelled this one. I remember purplebird talking about it, in the same vein as Terre de Hermes.

    Yes, but Omnia is much softer, no vetiver earthiness, and less pungent orange notes.

    Yes, speaking from personal experience.

    It's soft woods and slightly sweet - could work, but I think most men would find it quite feminine.

    No harm in trying it out and seeing how it develops on you.

    I find no similarity to Terre.

    No way. Too sweet and feminine smelling.

    I actually remember liking this one when I tried it a long time ago at Bloomingdales. I would have never guessed that it was a women's perfume, because it was in the men's section, apart from the fact that it is not overtly feminine. I say you should be ok on this one.

    Personally I have a sample and after spraying it, I do not see why a man could wear it. In my opinion, many of Bulgari scents are unisex and the ingredients in Ominia lean towards unisex. If you can obtain a sample, I would sample it first since everyone's skin chemistry is different.

    It is fairly tepid and not particularly endearing for a man unless you're trying to hide your tracks from Sarah Palin.

    Yes! it's more unisex than a LOT of masculine marketed scents (Dior Homme, Aramis 900..)

    Since this thread got bumped, here's my thought. Omnia Crystalline is very unisex to me. It's crisp and fresh like many designer mens fragrances.

    In the same cedar-heavy family as Equus, Tumulte etc. Definitely could be pulled off by a bloke -- you betcha.

    Cool bottle, bad atomizer. (Just thought I'd throw that in.)

    I think Omnia would smell darn nice on a guy. Cedar. Spices.

    I second that the bottle sucks. Big time. Has a tendency to topple over.
    And the spray nozzle is located such that one tends to misjudge where the stream (That's another thing, it comes out in a stream, not a spray.) comes out, so that one has a tendency to shoot *over* whatever one was aiming to hit.
