    In the spirit of a continuing shift of attention away from Creed and 'panty dropping'

    If it is a female frag, why does it matter?

    OK, let's reveal the secret, shall we: wearing feminine scents increases the size of your dong by 40% - overnight! It also turns hot lesbians into heterosexual nymphomaniacs. There, I spilled the beans, and now excuse me please, I'm wearing Shalimar extrait and these poster girls here have just dropped their panties...

    Never seen it or heard of it, thus the comment/question. Didn't say anything was wrong with it.

    ok then. it's a f..ing perfume bottle! it looks f..ing feminine probably because it's marketed to f..ing women.

    Calm down you guys, he just made an observation. I personally thing that's a really classy looking bottle, feminine or otherwise. Never heard of or seen it though. Gotta check out that other thread...

    Speak, brother! Testify! I have seen this bottle in a dream, or possibly in Saks Fifth. But there was no odor in the dream, so do tell us what it's like!

    (And fie on those who would be in search of a <disgust> pant-eh drop-ah </disgust>.)

    You know what I'm disappointed with? The lack of sweet oriental threads (doesn't apply as much for this one). Enough with the green stuff bleeechhhh

    Osmoz describes it as,
    "storia
    Variante in leggerezza, composizione radiosa tra ombra e luce, Le Baiser du Dragon per questa primavera è proposto in versione eau de toilette. Una nuova sensualità ove il vetiver e l’iris, il maschile e dil femminile, perpetuano con elegnaza la loro firma unica. Rinfrescata da esperidei e gelsomino aereo, la fragranza conquisterà le donne in attesa di una versione più delicata dell’eau de parfum.
    "

    Which is saying something about the masculine vetiver and feminine iris perpetuating with elegance their unique signature.
    And the last line says something about the fragrance conquering women.
    I wish my Italian were better, or the description simpler to translate.

    Oook. Slow down a bit. When I started a "Would this or that fragrances work for a man"-thread things got a bit messy with offensive language. All different kinds of things said about gay people and such. Sometimes it seems like Basenotes is the Mekka of double moral standards. And know when I see this. Well... Then I think to myself that some of you should shut up and stop saying some of the things that's been said in this thread.

    Just a thought. Peace and I'm out.

    Cartiers website describes Le Baiser du Dragon as a fragrance that takes vetiver, which they deem as traditionally masculine, and gives it a feminine twist. It lists Le Baiser du Dragon as having top notes of amaretto accord, neroli blossom, and gardenia; a heart of iris, cedar, musk, and Bulgarian rose; and base of vetiver, patchouli, benzoin, and amber.

    I get a wonderful floral bouquet on the bed of cedar and incense. It is definitely a female oriented fragrance, but easily unisex. I am sooooo excited to have found it. You can grab it off eBay for 40-75 bucks, which is a great savings. I get 8 hours out of it, and it's an edp.
    I am terrible at classifying fragrance, but I think it's safe to call this a woody oriental.

    Interesting dudes! Until the San Francisco meeting where men out numbered women 2:1, and all were masculine (not that it mattered), not all men were gay. Plus, a man is a man unless he wears a dress on a regular basis! A well crafted perfume also relies on the wearer. A man by wearing it will make it masculine. I've tried masculine scents to purchase for my brother, but I mess it up and make it sweet and girly with my chemistry. Thanks to the SF Basenotes men, I'm also breaking out of the box.

    When Basier du Dragon came out, I was given a very large sample with lotions and hair scent. I really liked it, but I didn't want to wear it. Now I get it, it is a bit masculine on it's own.

    This seems to be a blurb from Cartier's release of the edt. They mention that it will be available as an edt this spring. Last line says something like "With the freshness of hesperides and airy jasmine, this fragrance will win women waiting for a version which is lighter than the eau de parfum."

    The bottle itself looks like it could be a space helmet or maybe something used underwater. I can't tell if that spike down the middle is an applicator or just houses the spray tube. All in all the bottle looked feminine to me, yet I see the word 'Dragon' on it. It perplexed me, and thus my reply.

    I haven't noticed any gay bashing going on in here, where are these comments?

    They are not here....hope it will stay that way.
    I understand what you meant, that you had never seen the bottle, and it was an innocent question.
    At first I read it as..."wtf is that, it looks feminine (so whytf would men wear it)"

    I think it is clear that you were merely intrigued by the bottle and name...

    So back on track, the black tube is not an applicator on the spray version, it just goes down the middle.

    Seriously, though, I think if you like and wear Mitsouko, this is something to sample.

    If you like it, you might want to try FUBU Plush for men, which also features the amaretto note. The base is a musky sandalwood and amber, with the powdery iris/orris persisting.

    This is my favourite post of the year.

    I have now smothered myself in Penhaligon's Bluebell and now need a much bigger pair of trousers to accommodate the anaconda that now is fighting to get out.
    In a world where people smell bad, it is the personal responsibility of every Basenoter to improve the world one SotD at a time...
