    It's personally never smelled feminine to me although a lot of people mention it does.

    Try it. If you like it, wear it.

    I tried it once and I don't think it's too feminine for a man to wear it at all. It's sweet and powdery, yes, but not unwearable. I'm not a fan of it, though.

    Florals. I think it's unisex, leaning masculine.

    Personally I didn't think it smelt feminine at all, don't know how some people get that honestly? Yeah, it's a bit powdery....but I got a masculine smokey smell out of it on my skin.

    Like others have mentioned, the powder note will probably give off a feminine vibe. Great fragrance!

    I just tested this finally (after blind buying the bottle, whoops) and sprayed Bvlgari Black on the other arm. The sweetness and florals in MiP were quite apparent. Now do I think it's 'feminine', nah not really, but the thought did cross my mind that my girlfriend could try it some time. It does have some floral side there, but it's almost like the honeysuckle side of Farenheit for example.

    I bought the 4.2 oz EDP for $38, great purchase for cold nights out to dinner.
    Its a warm, inviting fragrance
    I KNOW I smell good when I wear it.

    The EDP is an absolute beast. Be careful with the spray count or it gets a little rude.

    It smells feminine because something in your life has caused you to associate femininity with an odor.

    My wife wears it and I love it on her. Would never wear it myself and I'm a fan of Dior Homme. Bulgari black would be the more masculine out of the two. Mip is floral heavy, very powdery, and has a perfumey type vibe running through it. Don't buy it blind.

    I think it treads the line. I would say it'd be safe for you if you're the kind of guy who likes to wear a shirt with those cute little buttons to tie up the sleeves above the elbow.

    It has a lot of positive things going for it. The bottle is very nice, it's very inexpensive, and it also comes in EdP form. As far as you being comfortable wearing it is something you must decide. Myself I prefer it on my wife so yeah it's that feminine to me.

    Put a spray of the EDP on to refresh my recollection. Really no more femme than Dior Homme. A tad sweet and powdery, but I think it's just fine for a man to wear in dressier wear scenarios or date night. Never been a top-10 or anything for me, but it's quite good.

    Man, I don't get why people say it's feminine either. I can't speak on the EDT because I haven't tried it, but the EDP, definitley not feminine, possibly unisex. Bvlgari Black is unisex, though I think it's more masculine because of the more harsh rubber note, MIP EDT is smoother, so maybe that's why people say it's feminine. All I can tell you is to try it, get a sample from somewhere or someone, you can find samples if you look, an d if you pay or have something to swap for it.

    Heh, people say DH and DHI are feminine too. To me, it's just laughable, completely subjective, and trendy.. one person suggests it, so they all think it.

    I don't know about smelling "feminine," but it is quite powdery and I dislike the stuff for sure. If one enjoys it, gender should not be a factor.
