I did't know it was marketed to women at the time, when a Hermes SA suggested that I try it because she thought I would like the oak note in it. Man was she right. I tried to blow it off and left the store. Approximately 1/2 mile away, I started getting whiffs of the mid & basenotes in the car, made a u-turn and snatched it up. I like it a lot and wear it quite a bit.
It's an unusual wood base scent that intrigues me most - unlike most others.
