Have you tried it on yet? If so, what are your own impressions of it on your skin?
I can't compare my bottle (EdT, from the early 2000s) with earlier or later versions, but speaking of the scent as I know it, yes it is a big fragrance of roses + powdery violets, very long lasting and with huge sillage. It is highly recognizable as well. I find I have to dab rather than spray or the powderiness gets to be overwhelming. The EdT is less sweet than the EdP.
Can a man wear it? Hmmm....I have never smelled this on a man. Theoretically anyone, man or woman, can wear any perfume. Why not just wear it at home first, and see how you feel about it before going out in public with it?
