    Here's the profile of the guy I am looking to answer this thread, but all comments are welcome

    Lives in USA, Urban Area NYC, Atlanta, Chicago or DC

    lots of testosterone
    CONTROLS the remote
    Definitely from Mars
    Athletic or ex athlete
    savvy and sophisticated, educated


    Brief comments are welcome....
    TIA
    Dear Memechose, this sounds like wanting to use a rather specific subgroup of Basenoters for a very specific purpose of your own business. I wonder if the Male Fragrance Discussion board is the right place for this kind of poll. BN is a global forum and people normally don't specify in advance whose reply, or what kind of reply would be particularly welcome in their thread, or even less welcome !

    ps:I do wear Paris Hilton's perfumes for men and women, it really doesn't matter which. I am really sorry that you don't seem to like them! Also the products of Jessica Parker I cannot resist - just too lovely! I get a lot of compliments from the girls and my Boss, whenever I wear them. So glad you asked for Rive Gauche: I wear that too, but the men's edition I have to admit. I just don't dare wearing that one in the office! It is so...I don't know... if hope you can guess what I mean!

    Do I detect fragrance snobbery here?

    It's bad enough that guys here are subject to ridicule for wearing the very good Paris Hilton men's scents, but now you effectively snob all the macho guys who wear the very good Paris Hilton women's scents.

    This may well bias your article, such that people will reply to you with scents that either have a certain snob value, or scents that the gurus (LT and Burr) have deemed safe for males to wear.

    I agree with the mentioned frags, and would add Carven Ma Griffe.

    (Is she really a Mom, or is this French)?

    Guerlain Insolence actually works pretty well on my skin. Same goes for Opium by YSL. I don't own any bottles, but I love stealing my girlfriend's samples.

    This is French, and means : my claw (verbal translation), but I understand that metaphorically. Other than a bird's (or cat's) claw, griffe could also mean a particular knife. Quite often French perfume names are a play with double meanings.

    I can put them right next to J.Lo's Deseo for Men.

    See my Wardrobe
    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Mitsouko

    I've tested others but these are the ones I regularly wear.

    EDIT: replied before reading your profile. I don't live in The USA obviously and don't think I really correspond to your stated requirements. But hey, these are the ones I wear, anyway.

    I like wearing Mitsouko (the greatest fragrance ever), Eau de Courreges and Diorella.

    I don't give a crap if a fragrance is meant for women or men. If it smells good, I'll wear it!

    I fit the bill. I'm an athletic guy, love boxing and football, have two post-grad degrees, and live in Chicago.

    I find that most people tell me my frag is feminine when i'm wearing a men's frag, but when i wear a women's frag they tend to love it. I coudl care less who a frag is marketed towards, but am more concerned that something not be OVERTLY and totally feminine.

    Right now there are several amazing womens' frags that have not only got me excited, but which women compliment all the time:

    - CK Obsession Night for Women
    - Kenzo Jungle l'Elephant
    - Dior Escale a Portofino - left me speechless
    - Tom Ford Black Orchid Voile de Fleur
    - Guerlain's Shalimar and Mitsuoko (though not as fond of these as others on this site)

    Presently none, nut it would be great if a male/unisex version of Bvlgari's Jasmin Noir would be invented, as already the female version is almost suitable for male wear.

    I most defintely control the remote. And I've booby trapped it just in case some female-gendered individual gets the crazy idea to attempt to wrest it from my hairy monkey fingers.

    However, as I compiled this list, I was overcome by a girly frisson that made my Y chromosome wince.

    My list:
    Sous le Vent
    Mitsouko
    Cuir de Russe
    Black Orchid
    Infusion d'Iris
    Coromandel
    The Pour Un Ete
