    Talking Women Scents for Men

    Hi all. Any suggestions for pour femme scents but smells very masculine/woody? A classic example of this category is like D&G Light Blue or Hermes Eau des Merveilles. I am very curious to try pour femme scents that suits a man. I feel that most Unisex scents tends to be more feminine than masculine though. Thanks.

    Paco Rabanne Metale -- a bitter, green, metallic floral
    Clinique Aromatics Elixir -- not for everyone but I love it; sort of hard to describe, actually
    Estee Lauder Knowing -- very "grand;" it reminds me of sugared brandy or bourbon or something, and it has tons of sillage

    D&G Light Blue smells masculine/woody to you??? Not to me!

    I like Herms Elixir des Merveilles as a guy. L'Eau de Kasaneka by Menard is a good one (a bit woody, too). Also, the pour femme version of L'Instant de Guerlain is very similar to the pour homme, in my opinion, with a subdued floral nature that makes it great for a guy. I think that Kenzo Amour, Kenzo Amour Indian Holi, and Kenzo Jungle Elephant are decent for guys, too, although I personally haven't smelled Jungle Elephant.

    If light blue is your benchmark then anything by Guerlain will surfice. Also try some of my favourites:

    Kingdom
    Bandit
    Habanita

    Ava Luxe Midnight Violet smells very woody to me -- make it burned out woods and crushed greens. Nothing floral/girly about it, contrary to what the name may suggest.

    I reread the thread question more closely (I should have done so the first time!) and have to amend my recommendations, to exclude Paco Rabanne Metale.

    I'm not sure what smells masculine vs. femme these days; I've gotten so many whiffs of pretty smelling men (wearing scents labeled for/marketed to men). Both rose and carnation smell masculine to me.
    Here are some that are sufficiently woody, herbal, or leathery:

    Coco parfum
    Opium-edt, edp, or parfum
    Azuree, the original
    Halston
    Youth Dew Bath oil
    Vol de Nuit (parfum may be a better fit)
    Eau Dynamisante
    Coriandre
    Cabochard

    2nd- Black Cashmere, Aromatics Elixir, and Cuir de Russie.
