This scent is as unisex as it could possibly be. i'd say it leans towards Masculine with its crude set of hay and earthy notes...

What jenson said.
Its unisex, but but it smells better as a concept than it does as a perfume. PG really dropped the ball when he formulated this... a one star frag from a four star house.

Not feminine, but many in the Female board dig it. It's definitely unisex and androgynous. A four star frag from a five star house. I understand there is a note in this along with Cedre Sandaraque (and to a lesser extent -- Querelle) that may turn some people off. Still, it was wanted so badly by many people (including myself) for PG to continue making it that they had moved it into their permanent line. Hooray for that.

Bois Blond is great - it'd still be in my regular wardrobe if I hadn't become allergic to it.
I'd call it unisex and broadly ambery and grassy. It is not woody at all, at least to my nose.

I tried to love Bois Blond, but there's some weird accord in there that's over and above my olfactory capabilities. It nauseates me crazy

this is a GREAT scent....by far one of my favourite PG scents i've tried....as everyone else has said----totally unisex.
I agree with Amit. It just didn't work for me. I think it's the 'hay' accord. It smells like moldy grass to me. Just not my thing. I don't like hay or cereal notes in general & this one seems to have that in spades.
I like Drama Nuui for a dry feminine frag. Jasmine & absinthe, it's diff. from everything else, sharp, green & not too sweet.
I tested it briefly, so eventually need to revisit it. I remember it being unisex but tending toward masculine with dry, blonde wood notes.
i'd say 4/5 star fragrance from a 5+ star house. The opening accord is very odd - I find it very similar to the smell of topsoil, but this fades quickly into a woody/grain smell that is subtle and fantastic, and the base is to die for. Most houses rely on the topnotes to sell a fragrance and put less care into the heart/base - gotta give it to PG for having the balls to do the opposite.
I have the feeling this is better on male (the ph factor?) skin.
