    Default Tom Ford Voile de Fleur

    Do you guys think a guy can pull this one off? I just got a steal on Ebay and need to know if I will end up giving it away to a female.

    VdF is a slightly floral version of Tom Ford's Black Orchid.

    If you are not into wearing florals, you may find this a tad feminine.
    Though I love both VdF and Black Orchid and wear them both without any hiccups.

    I think a guy can pull it off (I may be the wrong one to ask though). Gardenia-esque.

    A confident man can pulll it off. I bought a 1.7 oz for $20 at TJ Maxx! I find it better for night time in cool or cold weather.

    A guy can wear it, but it's not very special to my nose. It starts out a decent white floral but quickly fades to a weak, sweet sibling of the original Black Orchid.

    They share a few notes, but they're entirely different fragrances. VdF is much lighter, a peppery white floral, while the original BO is much heavier and, in my opinion, much more masculine. Personally, I wouldn't wear either, but BO is much easier for a guy to pull off than VdF. But that's me. Try it. If you like it, wear it. Don't let my opinion stop you

    I also bought this at TJ Maxx. It's not something I'd wear a lot, but I do love its sweet white floral bouquet. Very comfortable to wear at home. Floral scents certainly don't scare me away or keep me from wearing it. I'd love to get a matching bottle of Black Orchid.
    Your nostrils, which will dilate immesurably in unspeakable contentment, in motionless ecstasy, will ask nothing better for space, for they will be full of fragrance, as if perfumes and incense; for they will be glutted with complete happiness, like angels who dwell in the peace and magnificence of pleasent heaven.
