IMO equally less.
A local store just got a shipment of Shalimar Ode a la Vanille and I'm considering buying a bottle. Is this limited edition better suited for men or less suited, in terms of maculinity and wearability as compared to the original?
IMO equally less.
Equally suitable for men and women - just like the original.

I agree - this new version is easily unisex, as the original. It is more accessible, but not more gender specific.
"The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not the "thinker." The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. You also realize that all the things that truly matter - beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace - arise from beyond the mind.
You begin to awaken"
-- Eckhart Tolle
Agree with above comments re. this one being quite unisex - I find it a bit 'quieter' than the original, more subtle, and the vanilla is excellent, it's airy rather than dense or sticky. I bought an extra bottle.

I think it is "very unisex" (because to my nose it has an Armani Code thing going on at its heart), but I don't think that the original Shalimar is "daring" or "risqué" to wear as a man.
