    I took jack hunter advice when i asked the same question and bought tom ford extreme. I love it!!!!

    I also get this feeling from chanel platinum egoiste, but in a different way.

    Tom ford extreme says "power has been in my family for generations and politicians beg for our scraps".

    Cpe says "i am going to steamroll your ass on my way to the top"

    Hard to imagine a unisex frag (Tom Ford Extreme) as being the scent of power...
    It may be alot of other things, like chick magnet, nice scent, whatever. But "unisex" and "power" are kinda mutually exclusive, I'd say... at least for the purposes of a male frag forum.
    Maybe I'm just behind the times...

    Definitely agree with this one.
    Here is what one reviewer I like alot said about Quorum:

    "Here it is, my favorite fragrance, my Number One. I've said about all I can ever say about this awesomely dark, macho monster.
    I still get excited whenever I put on Quorum. It's the most aromatic fragrance I've ever smelled, with all the patchouli, tobacco, leather, pine, herbal notes and oakmoss I could ever want. And it blends it all perfectly.
    I own eight bottles of Quorum for a reason."

    It's listed as a men's fragrance on Fragrantica, and is in the men's section at every place I've seen it sold. Not that it matters either way, but I've never thought of it, or seen it advertised as unisex, as, " According to Tom Ford, this edition is more intensive and powerful than the original one "*which would be Tom Ford for Men* (emphasis and asterisks my own).

    That being said, I think it would smell good on a female, as I consider almost all scents "unisex" personally.

    I think here on BN it is listed as unisex. I will admit to not being familiar with it. So as I said before, I just can't connect "unisex" and "power." But maybe that is just my chauvinistic hangup.
    That being said, I agree with you in principle, and think it's fine if some guys like unisex or even women's frags. And they might hate some of the ones I love. But it's all good in the frag-o-sphere..

    I have a bottle of Tom Ford Extreme and it is one of the most masculine fragrances in my collection, pure hairy chest testosterone fragrance lol. Imo and to my nose there is nothing even remotely unisex about Tom Ford Extreme, it's all MAN.

    It's a great rich and complex fragrance that shouts power, success and money. Great MANLY fragrance that would suit the President of the United States. lol

    Thumbs up Re: The scent of power....



    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    The "feeling" of power, or just feeling confident about yourself? I think that's what we're getting at here.

    Just about any fragrance that makes me feel great when I wear it. And that's even more true if I know most others aren't going to be wearing it and won't know what it is, and I know they are wondering what I'm wearing.

    Yes, things like Tabarome and Windsor come to mind, but there are many less expensive colognes that give me the same feeling.
