    Default Jesus Del Pozo In Black - Can It Be Worn By A Man?

    I stumbled upon this fragrance when looking through the JDP directory. Just curious if anyone has smelt it & whether or not they think a man could/should pull it off. Thanks in advance....

    If you liked Cartier Delices and think it works well on your skin, you may enjoy In Black. They have a similar vibe.

    Yes,rickbr is right.Delices includes black cherry something in common wth in black!
    In black ,is a warm deep fruity-woody smelling perfume! It has notes of black cherry, black pepper, pink grapefruit, top rose, black lily, jasmine, violet, licorice wood, madagascan vanilla, moroccan cedar and indonesian patchouli!

    If the man can depress the nozzle and spray it on, than he can wear it.

    It's a heavy oriental with a tuberose+jasmine+orchid accord like Black orchid and Poison. I know many men who wear BO and a few who wear Poison. If You like those 2 and would wear them, JDP In black would be worth getting. It'a a nice frag with good sillage.

    Thanks for all the feedback. I've never purchased a fragrance marketed towards women before, but I'm intrigued by this offering. I've sampled both Quasar and Quasar Adventure and found them competent. Since so many of you have said that In Black is not too feminine for man to wear, and because it has a licorice note in it, I went ahead and ordered a mini on ebay. We'll see how it turns out...

    OK. I think one should wear what suits him and what he likes and not go by price, name, gender and so on. Noone in the street knows what perfume You wear, how much it costs and what audience it is geared to. I love complimenting people on their fragrance since my childhood. This is the best unbiased way to learn what I like - just by the smell. Half of the time I compliment men on their fragrance they tell me they are wearing a unisex or feminine fragrance. I have loved the feminine vesrions of : Dune, Must, Poison, Obsession (for women)Angel and a few others. The gender division is very arbitrary. I myself find Obsession for women more manly than its men counterpart. I have worn both. I once stopped a guy in the street who told me he wore Obsession , went to a shop and looked around, grabbed one Obsession for women and gave it to a male friend as a birthday present. He loved it and said ha has never smelled such a handsome scent. He (not an english speaker) only found it was women's frag when he went to a shop to repurchase.

    Michael Jackson loved and wore Black Orchid, Shalimar and Bal a Versailles. I prefer Bal a Versailles and Shalimar on a man.

    So, the choice is Yours! Good luck and come back to report on the scent!

    In fact, most ladies fragrances by J del Pozo have a surprisingly, unexpectedly good unisex versatility-therefore seconding the recommendations in favor of this fragrance being worn by men
    Currently wearing: Eau des Baux by L'Occitane

    There's definitely a masculine vibe to "In Black" but the overall feel is feminine.

    It's very, very smokey. Sweet and smokey.
