    Cool Can we guys really get away with wearing Guerlain Mitsouko?

    I have read several articles saying we can, but although it is excellent and mouthwateringly perfect in every way, isn't it just a little bit too feminine for a man? I wish I had the guts to wear Mitsouko, maybe transversely I'm just not man enough?

    Yes, it draws compliments, at least in my case.

    There's a high-school boy here who wears Mitsouko to school. We're all gutless wonders next to him!

    (Actually, he may have graduated by now...)

    I've tried it unsuccessfully. On my skin, it went way too feminine for my likes.

    Yeah I do. I even get away with L'instant de Guerlain pour femme, which I love so much. I wear the extrait of it. In moderation, scents will blend well with your looks and chemistry. If you love it, wear it without fear. I get away will most of the women's Caron scents. Two sparys on the chest and that's it. You can replenish later on in the day. If you are self-aware all the time, you won't enjoy it.

    I wear it from time to time. It doesn't feel feminine to me - but that's just me. I think of it as a study in classic perfumery and enjoy it each time I wear it.

    I wear it, too. Love the stuff. I also wear a number of women's frags, especially chypres and some of the orientals.

    It's up to to you whether you find it too feminine. But how much of that is psychological? Does the fragrance really smell that feminine to you or has the packaging and marketing had too strong an influence?

    I say be bold and give it a full wearing or two rather than just think about it. Only then will you know if you like how it performs for you.

    Why not? In fact, to my nose, Mitsouko does have unisex potential

    I also agree. No one else will know or even think that it is a feminine scent. You have to overcome your own worries about it.

    Absolutely. It's in The Guide as one of the top ten feminines for men.

    If I could wear it I would. I love this fragrance, but for some reason It doesn't love me. Maybe some kind of a skin thing, but back to your question you bet you can wear it.

    I think you should draw conclusions Bruspotter.
    In some cases, posing the question is answering the question.

    I find it helps if I wear Mitsouoko with a cute sundress and some strappy sandals. Then it seems just right.

    It depends on your style in general. If you like high-heels, go for it.

    Just kidding. Personally, I'd feel so badass if I wore a woman's perfume. If somebody would ask me "Isn't that a perfume for women?" I would answer Dick Cheney style "So?"

    However, I tend to like spicy/woodsy notes and dislike flowery ones, so I guess I'm naturally drawn to "men's fragrances".

    I have found that there is very little I cannot wear, and besides, Mitsouko is not really that far into the female spectrum anyway. By sticking rigidly to the gender divides, you may well be depriving yourself of some wonderful fragrance experiences.

    You guys can definitely wear Mitsouko - it's very unisex to me.

    If you like it, wear it. Forget about the gender labels. Simply enjoy!

    I agree with Mimi that it's unisex. Not overly "flowery." But who am I to say flowers are not for men!? My poster boy's favourite scent was jasmine.

    Yay for Primrose !

    Yes, I find most of the Guerlain's are quite interchangeable between the sexes. Go for it guys !

    To me this peachy-mossy fragrance is easily unisex. However its also instantly recognizable by the general public - there have been times when women have asked me whether I was wearing a 'Guerlain' or 'Mitsouko'..

    I'm in highschool and I wear Mitsouko very often to school. I don't really find Mitsy very feminine, and everyone who has complimented me on it don't either, I wouldn't worry about it, if you like it... wear it.
    Live a wonderfully perfumed life!
