    Default CdG Wonderwood on a man...hot or not?

    Ladies, your opinions are needed.

    I tested Wonderwood today and found it smooth, deep and autumnal and it seemed to come up nice on my skin. However, I have bought a couple of woody fragrances in recent months that did not seem to be remotely popular with the ladies (Kenzo PH and Guerlain Homme L'Eau Boisee). Sure I get compliments wearing L'Instant de Guerlain EDT and Dior Homme, but I really like Wonderwood and I'm keen to grab a bottle. Just wanted to check and see if any of you have smelled it on a man and, if so, as it is a unisex fragrance, what did you think?

    Any thoughts at all would be most appreciated.

    I really like it. Just my opinion. If you like it, go for it!

    If you feel good wearing it, the fragrance will boost your confidence level and women tend to find that attractive. Go for it.

    I would certainly love to smell it on a man. However, please keep in mind that the opinions of the ladies on Basenotes are most probably not represantative of that of most people who are not really familiar with the world of fragrances.

    Exactly. We are a self selected group. Most young women don't want you wearing a challenging scent, they would rather you smell:

    A) not like an "old man"

    B) not like a woman

    C) vaguely aquatic and/or fruity

    I think it's very nice - warm, woody, clean. It's on the more masculine side of unisex, in my view (certainly more masculine than Dior Homme, I would say). I contemplated purchasing it for a male relative for Christmas but ended up opting for Terre de Hermes instead.

    Can you not get hold of a sample and try it out over a couple of wearings?

    Very true Scentsucker. I have had the "old man" comment (eau sauvage) before but I don;t think Wonderwood fits A, B or C. It's not old man, too feminine or aquatic/fruity. It's clean woody loveliness.

    Leontion, a sample is a good call, I will try and locate one...

    Many thanks for your input ladies and gent.

    I think you're better off asking people in your social circle.

    The internet is not a neighborhood.

    Imagine, some people fermented/macerated saffron & rose oil. It smells divine by the way.

    for swap/sale:
