    Wink Please recommend: best floral perfumes for men / unisex out there.

    Spring has come. Time to swap perfume.

    Any suggestions for a well blended, not overly sweet floral fragrance?
    Thanks.

    Acqua di Genova do two unisex fragrances which are called Gold and Silver. They are nice floral, neither too masculine or feminine, last a long time and are not in your face florals.

    My current favorite florals are Paestum Rose and Muscs Koublai Khan (civet and rose). I think they are non gender-specific scents and are easy to pull off. They're not very heavy, IMO.

    Ditto on Insensé and Ténéré.

    Knize Two may be worth trying, if you like jasmine and violet.

    Vintage Dolce Vita - clearly a unisex floral frag!

    I've been wearing Angel Schlesser Essentielle pour femme EDP lately which is a woodsy rose which is very nice. Long story how I came by it, but it was by accident and I tried wearing it and found I liked it.

    Funnily enough I was wearing Richard James Savile Row to work today, a really lovely fragrance, has a kind of honey feel to it in the drydown and lasts a long time.

    Roses are great, often not particularly sweet at all. In this vein...

    Sonoma Scent Studio's Vintage Rose
    Eau d'Italie's Paestum Rose
    Creed's Fleurs de Bulgarie
    Penhaglion's Elixir
    Serge Lutens Rose de Nuit
    Montale's Black Aoud

    Finding drier white florals is trickier. These, none the less, fit the bill to varying degrees:

    Neil Morris' Gandhara
    Serge Lutens' A La Nuit ( and very similar, Saffron James's Nani )
    Parfums DelRae's Amoureuse

    I'll second the suggestion of Eau d'Italie's Magnolia Romana, a very dry, smoky-spicy, aquatic magnolia.

    Women's Rive Gauche. May be too sweet though. Otherwise, Y by YSL.
    If fragrance has a gender, so does all art.

    +1 for Givenchy Insensé and Kenzo Power. Ténéré is also interesting but more on the darker side.

    These two grabbed my attention recently and I'm nearly ready to do a 'blind' buy because curiosity is getting the better of me. If I were to do that (!) which of the two would you recommend?

    Oh and how could I forget Hermes' glorious Hiris? A dry, austere but very unisex Iris fragrance very wearable by a man (I should know I wear it enough lol)
