    Default Bottega Veneta EDP masculinity

    Hello everyone,

    i have sampled Bottega Veneta EDP perfume recently and really liked it. although its marketed as a female fragrance i feel it leans a little more towards the masculine side or at least right in the middle (unisex). maybe its the leathery notes. however, i don't have experience in female fragrances.
    any guys using it for themselves?
    please share your opinion on this.

    I smelled it in Las Vegas earlier this year and while it really was not my kind of scent I thought it was very nicely done... and very wearable.

    Personally would never consider wearing this one.

    Me too in City Center, I bought it and one for the girl I was with. I believe it to be unisex and have no problems wearing it. Can think of many others that are much more challenging on the mens side that I wont wear.

    I actually sampled Bottega Veneta last night and it is wonderful to my nose and I wouldn't have a problem wearing it. Wear what you like and be yourself!

    I have a bottle of it and wear it on rotation. Smooth soft suede fragrance, rather nicely done imo. Feels alot like a plummy version of Daim Blond.

    It didn't smell girly to me.
    Rather it smelled like a unisex scent.

    I would say it is a feminine scent with a unisex vibe. This meaning that it leans more towards the feminine side. However, it is a wonderful, well blended, suede leather fragrance. I bought this for my lady a couple of years back. It smells wonderful on her. I enjoy the scent but would not wear it myself.
