    Default Which scents have you ever stolen from the girls?

    As some of you may have read my wowowow by this:
    http://www.basenotes.net/threads/366...y-wearing-this

    I wonder which scents have you ever stolen from the girls?
    Not talking about unisex scents but really the women. And probably you got compliments too as people don't have an idea what the gender of your smell is. ??

    None.

    No so far, but I do have to admit several fragrances officially/formally recognized as strictly feminine have a quite unisex suitability about them (to my nose, Silences de Jacomo, the now discontinued Ispahan by Yves Rocher, several concentrations of Chanel No. 19, Bvlgari Jasmin Noir, with some efforts of imagination, even scarce fragrance applications of Dior Addict smelling more unisex to me than I expected).

    Not really, but I don't wear them to work much. Girlfriends made some comments about being gay, scents being too feminine for me and such.

    I like to spray a little Angel on my wrist while at the house, but wouldn't do a full wearing of it in public. I stick to my A-men when going out.

    Yeah, what a shame. Almost predictable comments from the norm. Why guys need to keep it discreet? It's only a scent.

    Oops, is it counted to be 'cross-dressing'??

    Perhaps I should add that these were just harmless comments made in jest. I don't think anybody would make too much of a fuss about a man wearing a women's scent (if they even recognize them as such)?

    If you enjoy them you should wear them. You can always not wear them when you know you'll be in an environment that may have a problem with it or if you have a partner who prefers other types of scents.

    Sure!
    There's many threads about men wearing woman's fragrance. I wear what I love, but it depends on the situation.

    I wear many of the Guerlain classic ones, and some others. Some I'll only wear at home.

    I'll wear these in public, but not all of them to work:

    Jicky
    Mitsouko
    L'Heure Bleue (vintage)
    L'Heure de Nuit
    Vol de Nuit
    Estee Lauder Azuree
    Cabochard
    Shalimar Parfum Initial and l'Eau
    Chypre de Coty
    Aromatics Elixir
    Angel
    Bal a Versailles
    Diorella
    Dioressence
    Jubilation 25

    I almost never get any comments on my fragrance other than from my wife, regardless of what I wear. This is more a matter of social context. People that get compliments all the time must move in very different circles than I do.

    I've been thinking about buying Angel as I'm not always into the tar note in the men's version. But as far as today: none.

    Sublime Vanille is freakin' gorgeous on my wife. Wore it a few times, but found it works way better on her.

    Stolen from the girls (?) I remember a couple of women's fragrances that have really impressed me - though i'd never wear them myself. Another is Givenchy Ysatis and the other is Lancome Climate.

    Sure, all the time. But I think of much of what I wear, in this category, as stuff that was marketed to the wrong audience anyway. I don't find Chanel Coromandel, Guerlain Spiritueuse Double Vanille, Gucci No. 3, vintage Hermes Caleche and the new Tom Ford Sahara Noir to be all that feminine anyway. Not feminine at all, in some cases, in my opinion.

    Currently,

    Kenzo , Eau de Fleur The
    Kenzo 5.40pm in Madagascar (i've read it's unisex in some places, other's its feminine, so I'll include it for now..)
    Tout H2O

    and angling to acquire:

    Florabotanica Cristobal Balenciaga
    Guerlain Mitsouko
    Guerlain Cologne Imperial (again, confusion over the gender it's meant to be for, but damn I'd wear it!)

    Sampled Mitsouko a couple of days ago and it was very interesting to say the least.. I'm wondering I'm just going to love every Gurlain scent I sample.. The Cologne Imperial was so refreshing too...

    My wallet's gonna hurt on payday, that's for sure!

    Chanel Sycomore mostly.

    Might do Tea for two as well, but it's my girlfriends and was a gift from me - and it smells so amazing on her I really don't want to screw with that whole "feeling".

    So mostly - no - I find the scents mostly too sweet or too flowery, alas not for me.
