    Simply, because they smell good on men too. Many of the scents marketed to females if re-bottled into masculine bottles would smell masculine, or at least unisex. See, once you get into appreciating scents you'll come to understand that those marketing schemes are banal and baseless.

    Thanks for asking jonny... I cant add much more to Killer_Vavoom's comments, but after exploring the art of perfumery for a number of years, most men and women come to understand there is no such thing as "mens perfume" and "womens perfume"... only nuances of perfume.
    My own personal epiphany came about a couple of years ago,... you can read about my first foray into womens perfume here:

    Because you have such a small supply of No. 19 - right tott? ((wink))

    Seriously, it's adorable. And I love those solid metal atomizers from yesteryear - the juice inside is always as fresh as new since there's no light degradation.

    I sprayed this on myself at Belk and I was absolutely disgusted. I had never smelled something worse than this before. It smelled like a fart to me. I see nothing admirable in this frag. I'll try it again sometime, but I don't except much...
