I actually first sampled this in the men's department in a Saks, so yes it's intended for men to wear as well as women. Personally I find it a tad too sweet for my tastes. If you're looking for higher-end almond, you can try Profumum Confetto, which is an excellent almond fragrance that's very tenacious. Quite frankly one of the best almond-based fragrances available (and one that many claim the Profumum has copied with Confetto) is Dior Hypnotic Poison, which is a unisex, bitter-almond/vanilla gourmand. If you want to go higher end you could hunt down the Europe-only Hypnotic Poison Elixir EdP which adds incense and dark woody notes to the mid/base and lasts forever on the skin.
