    Opium and No. 19 are established signatures of Mrs. S., and I'd feel odd treading in her territory. But, she also has a good supply of rarely-worn Cabochard (some from me) that seems worth a shot, and I've been curious about both Youth Dew and Fidji for one or the other of us. Thankfully, not unicorns.

    Most men don’t wear it because they are terrified of the name, neither do most women because it smells a bit masculine.
    Some of the Private Collection scents like Angelique Encens and Aubepine Acacia could easily work for both genders.

    I don't think either Youth Dew or Fidji will leave production for at least a while because they both have that "heirloom" effect stuff like No. 5 and Shalimar has: too old for young "fashionable" women to choose on their own, but classic enough that someone older they know loves them and eventually they get curious enough to try wearing it too, creating another generation of customer to perpetuate the cycle. Even if they did get axed, there are metric crap-tons of it out there so like you said, not unicorns for a long time yet.

    You'd love Cabochard if you like Aramis, as it's the perfume Aramis is based on, and is actually the more butch-smelling of the two (oh irony).

    Youth Dew is just an animalic patchouli scent, so that kinda swings both ways regardless. Fidji is the classic chypre with a fruity twist (but plenty dry), and likely the most stereotypically "feminine" of the lot named.

    I like to qualify the phrase by saying “marketed” to men or women. Here are a couple for me:

    Gucci Bloom Acqua di Fiori is a nice green/floral coyote. Also Gucci Guilty Absolute Femme is pretty nice - nowhere near as harsh as it’s brother but nice raspberry note.
