    Question What is the most "masculine" version of Mitsouko?

    I really want to try Mitsouko, however I would like to know which concentration (or formulation) is the most masculine. Should I go vintage, or current?
    SEEKING BOTTLES OF:

    Aramis New West (preferably old bottle)
    Patrick by Fragrances of Ireland
    Azzaro Aqua
    Gloria by Cacharel

    PM me if you have bottles that you're willing to sell or trade!

    All versions are easily wearable by men. Avoid the modern for no other reason then it's just not Mitsouko. Exactly which formula/concentration of Mitsy is better then which is hard to say and very much personal preference. I prefer EdT from the 60s/70s, and PdT/parfum the 80s but that's just me. Mitsouko is sensitive to poor storage and will turn so you always have to keep that in mind when sourcing vintage bottles. Good luck!

    Edt is way better for men for me. Edp smells of older women

    Vintage EDC. Yup, you heard me right. The EDC. You wouldn't believe it's a female marketed frag.

    Modern and vintage are still good. Go for the EDP.

    The vintage Parfum de Toilette is quite a bit more hefty and dense, masculine... of all that I've tried, though I have yet to try the EdC of Mitsouko (vintage) but I *do* have a decant here thanks to a very good friend. I will try it during my weekend of sampling

    i have both the EDT and EDP (both recent versions) now, and it smells more like Chanel Pour Monsieur with peach. However the EDT seems to dissappear after 3-4 hours.

    Of the ones I know - vintage parfum and EdC (note: I don't like the latter and find the vintage extrait to be too "special" for my liking). The current extrait and EdP go through a short phase after the initial blast that is a bit "feminine" or "perfumey". I much more enjoy the new extrait as a kind of spring scent for me and no, it's not challenging as a man. Anyway, no great love for me so far.
