    Default AdP Magnolia Nobile on a man?

    I sampled it a couple of days ago and really loved it. However, it was pretty feminine to my nose. What do you think of it? It is classified as a feminine scent, but can a man pull it off? Any males here wearing it with comfort? And how is the longevity?

    I've meant to find this stuff. I hope a local store has it. Forgive me for posting and not being able to answer, but I'm reminded to sniff this stuff out. The house's Iris Nobile was good but had the problem of there being better irises out there. With a magnolia scent there might not be as much of that competition problem.

    It would be too easy to give you the "if you like it, wear it" direction, Irrbloss, so I'm sorry, you surely already know that. If a store I know has it I'll be able to give you a more thoughtful answer later.

    I had a full sample of this and wore it liberally several times.
    You can read a full review here... I found it had minimal projection and sillage, but did manage to last 6-7 hours.
    I also felt it very feminine, and hence difficult to pull off in public.

    I found that it is a bit feminine. Try Magnolia Romana by Eau d' Italie for a unisex magnolia offering. My no. 1 summer fragrance this year.
    Conscience is what hurts when everything else feels so good.

    I agree. Definitely go with Magnolia Romana.

    I have not actually tried it on my skin, so can't comment on it (although I see that does not stop others). But only you can determine whether you can "pull it off" or not - regardless of how it is classified.
