    Same here.

    I really like Polo RED a lot. Probably wouldn't wear it. Don't own a bottle, but I can't deny I like it a lot!
    I'm a POLO loyalist. lol

    I'm quite enjoying Chanel Gabrielle, despite it being marketed to women (who cares, though), but more so, despite it getting such a "ho hum" reception from perfumistas.

    I have the EDT and plan to get the EDP and Cologne some time as well Shalimar is some good stuff. After doing more reading about the line, I think I’ll like the EDP even more, as it’s said to be more animalic.

    I actually have several fragrances marketed to women. After I discovered the awesomeness that is Opium, I stopped caring about who the target audience was, and just started getting what I liked regardless. I’ve never had anyone say anything negative while wearing a woman’s fragrance, so I think most people probably don’t care. The crowd on here is especially open to it.

    I’ve even had several SA’s tell me that it’s very common for their customers to purchase from the opposite gender’s fragrance counter.

    That's no confession, just displaying good taste

    I have the (current) EDP and EDC version and love them both greatly. Would love to get my hands on a vintage version in the future.

    Perhaps quite a bit less likely, possibly also overlapping with "gets you most compliments" and/or "what fragrance did wow you recently" fragrance confessions:

    Muschio Bianco by Perlier, tested, chosen and gifted to some of my relatives did enjoy quite popularity recently, being discussed at a family reunion as a positive example about several qualities/characteristics a good fragrance should have

    I have a confession. Once, about 5 years ago.. somebody swapped me their 1.7 oz Grey Vetiver EDP fro my 1.7 oz Nautica Voyage. I felt like I committed a crime, but the guy was cool with it and had no problem. He either really wanted Nautica Voyage, or really hated Grey Vetiver.

    Lucky find! Was it a stranger or an acquaintance with whom you did the swap?

    I've smelled Shalimar Eau Légère , it has a very beautiful aromatic opening. Too bad it's hard to find now.

    I suggest either parfum extrait or the PDT concentration for vintage Shalimar.

    Just a stranger in the marketplace. Never saw them in this forum, or any others on here.

    Thanks! Vintage extrait is not really within my budget I think, so will be focussing more on a PDT concentration.
