    My votes would be for Yatagan and Rochas Moustache. I can imagine a woman perhaps pulling off Yatagan, but never ever Moustache.

    Of course, Old Spice was originally a fragrance for women and Drakkar Noir is from a genre that started with one of the most famous women's fragrances of all time, Jicky. I've also heard Drakkar Noir is popular with lesbians.
    My Top Ten:

    1: Guerlain - Habit Rouge
    2: Guerlain - Jicky
    3: Guerlain - Mouchoir de Monsieur
    4: Guerlain - Shalimar
    5: Knize - Knize Ten
    6: Caron - Yatagan
    7: Caron - Pour Un Homme
    8: Jean Desprez - Bal a Versailles
    9: Yves Saint Laurent - M7
    10: Salvador Dali - Dali Pour Homme

    Dior Oud Ispahan and Dior Leather Oud.

    Both are very boldly masculine and smell good too.

    Mona Di Orios Cuir, Dior Leather Oud, Kouros. These to me are the manliest of frags. I've seen antaeus mentioned and I think it's a truly remarkable fragrance but I can't put a "manliest" title to a fragrance that many people have told me I smell like an old lady when I'm wearing it. No one is going to tell you that you smell like an old lady wearing MDO's Cuir, Leather Oud or Kouros.

    I highly agree with Leather Oud but Oud Ispahan has that powdery rose that can def stear it fem.

    I've heard Muscs Koublaï Khän smells like a man's sweaty bollocks. Perhaps the ultimate in manliness?

    Le Grand Duc hit the nail on the head. Fahrenheit Absolute. Totally masculine.

    The older Puig releases would fit the bill:

    Quorum
    Agua Brava
    Vetiver de Puig

    Also, Esencia Loewe.
    Snarky is as snarky does.

    In my opinion probably azzaro ph becauseit has a boozy smell to it. Its stong enough to make me thinkthat a woman wouldnt want to smell like it butthen again it does have a powdery sweetness that women could find wearable.My guess would be the woodier the manlier.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Although oud is very popular with women so whoknows my second guess would be kouros fof it's fresh sharp Windex like note. Not sure if women would want to smell like Windex?or just plain aqua Velva.
