    Default Do women wear Kouros, Quorum or scents that are typically masculine?

    Question. Gourmand men's fragrances (Au Masculin, Body Kouros etc.) are popular with women. But I wondered if any women wore scents like Kouros (original) and Quorom.
    Or any other scent that is as masculine overall but they would wear.
    Fougeres don't seem that popular with women, if there are any exceptions, please say.
    Thanks.

    I like and wear Yatagan, L'Anarchiste & Le Troisieme Homme, they all seem pretty masculine to me

    Yay, Jacona! Another vote here for Yatagan for women. I also layer Antaeus with a hint of AL Roses.

    I could see Quorum being popular with women. I find it to be similar to Estee Lauder's Azuree and Clinique's Aromatics Elixir. All three are chypres. (And I adore all three, but that is another story.)

    I have been known to wear and have owned male fragrances. I used to always wear Versace Blue Jeans. I like wearing Polo (original) and I adore Royal Copenhagen ( the RC smells really nice on my skin! ).

    I really like Anteus, Cool Water and Aramis (which is basically waht Cabochard used to be.) I would not be caught dead in Kouros, but that is just my preference.

    LOL! Don't even get me started! I wear Parfum d'Habit and Richard James EDT.

    Some are my all-time scents include Derby (Sous Le Vent for men), Aramis (like Azuree), Le Troisieme Homme, Pour Un Homme, Habit Rouge, Mouchoir de Monsieur, Arome Trois and others. I have not worn Kouros simply because it's not for me, not because of the gender label.

    Another vote for Aramis, which is similar to both vintage Cabochard and vintage Bandit. I must try Devin and the rest of the Aramis line-up as well, and Bernard Chant is fast becoming one of my favourite noses. I wouldn't hesitate to wear Antaeus either.

    I love very much 1725 Casanova by Histoire de Parfums and Le Dandy by D'Orsay which are typically masculine scents.

    Le Dandy is another I wear as well, but this must be the 1990s version, correct?

    In 2009, they launched an eau de parfum version of Le Dandy. Almost the same but without oakmoss.

    The tale of the Comte d'Orsay being a perfumer, of course, is a marketing "legend" started in 1908 when the company came into being. He was a heavy perfume user but never made it for himself. As a matter of fact, when he, his wife and mother-in-law moved from Paris to London in 1830, they stock-piled orange flower water.
