    Yes, I am agreeing. Got my shirt loaded with this now. I use to enjoy wearing such as Daim Blonde by Serge Lutens. Sweet apricot with a refined suede. I never thought of it as fem, but rather a candied jam.

    Since having purchased this more than a year ago this pretty much sums up my feeling.

    Ok, I bit the bullet. I've decided this is different from Jardin Clos. (Watermelon) this is more amber and will work on men, too. My bottle is on the way. I hope the husband is ok with my having picked out my own Valentines Day gift, yet again.

    I want to relate a nice anecdote, if you'll indulge me. When I was on a recent trip I had just tried JdA at Halls in KC. I was in the hotel elevator on my way to the bar where everyone was watching the big game. I encountered some rough and tumble Chiefs fans all ready for a good time. I didn't think they'd pay any attention to me. They were 20ish and I grew up watching the original Mickey Mouse Parade on a black and white tv. But they sort of looked my way and one said," Are you wearing perfume?" Or something. I replied that I had just been trying some new stuff at Halls and was surprised they noticed. He said "Whatever it is, it's working!" The other 2 fellows nodded enthusiastically. Needless to say, I was extremely pleased..

    My favorite fragrance hands down. dont care if it is considered "feminine" I love it. My girlfriend thinks it is similar to D&G Light blue for women and i see the similarities.

    Beautiful unisex fragrance. One of Creed's best IMO.

    It's an excellent scent. I especially enjoy it in the warmer months, which is about 8 months of the year where I live

    My wife owns this and loves it. I don't think it's a scent that I could wear but some men are gonna wear it. If they can pull it off, hats off to them but this feels feminine

    I enjoy it, but not something in my collection. Bought my girlfriend a flacon, it fits here good.
    Thought it was unisex when I first got my nose on it. Now I just associate it with her, so my mind says feminine.

    I may have to agree Preston. I loaded up my shirt with this again today. My gf said it made her dizzy. I may get criticized for saying this, but it reminds me of honey flower downey, in an abstract way. Yes, JDA is way better, but it may be something I have to appreciate for all its beauty but never get to wear it.

    My wife and I share a bottle. She uses it more than I do, but I wear it from time to time also with pleasure. It is unisex i would say.

    Very Nice KumQuat and what a treasure to behold! Is this a spray or a pour? I've seen bottles with a sprayer.

    It's a splash. The goat skin covers the glass top. (I removed that) I decanted to a 5ml spray.

    Awesome Kumquat! Enjoy and may it bring you great pleasure. A true gem. I have 3 samples I'm wearing and after that, I may have to break down for it. I had thought it leaned on the fem side, but to be fair, my sinuses were jacked up that day. I find that if I don't over-applicate, it behaves nicely on me. A true gem!

    Thanks, I feel incredibly guilty. My sweet guy didn't even ask how much it was. What a sport! I'm very lucky.

    Sampled it recently, and yes, it does strike me as unisex. A beautiful fragrance, highly recommended. Too bad about the super high price, though.

    This is a major jug of juice. I can't possibly use it all myself.

    I get no femininity from JDA. To me it leans more toward the masculine side if anything. Its just a airy, fresh, fruity, and invigorating fragrance that is ideal for California summer days.

    I find it odd that the rose wasn't mentioned more in this thread. Are people's noses that different?

    To me, the rose is the star and dominant note of this fragrance. Am I crazy?

    I also like to see the guys say "it smells kinda feminine, but I don't give a shit, it's great so I'll wear it anyway" because that is exactly where I am on this too.
