A woman wearing men's fragrance seems very stylish, kind of like a woman wearing a man's tie.

Just as long as no one is wearing Old Spice it's okay with me.

Wow! How funny that someone started a thread like this, when I for about 2-3 weeks ago decided to start wearing men's fragrance. It all started on the airport in a shop and I sprayed on myself a lot of Hugo Boss perfume for men, of the reason that I always think about nice things when I smell this perfume, because a guy I liked a lot before used to smell that perfume. It was just for a joke really, but now I just wants to smell like that myself, so I can think about good things, and besides of that, I'm a sucker for androgynity, so I'm going to go for that. Make it my thing.

I agree with the others... I like heavier, musky scents on me. The only perfume I will wear is Opium. I wear Paul Sebastian, Lagerfeld, Gaultier & Opium Mens.

I think my first perfume was Hugo by Hugo Boss. I loved the smell but mostly I bought it because I loved the male model in the ad campaign. Werner smth smth. However, my friends got so used to the fact that this fragrance "belonged to me", so they found it weird when they smelt it on men! So, I probably ruined some romantic evenings for them...

I loooove Prada Homme. I think it smells better than any of the female fragrences out right now, apart from Pure Poision and obsession. I hope to buy a bottle of it soon

My friend works at Abercrombie, and she wears the mens fragerence because she thinks the womens is way too strong and fruity.

Big yay, IMO--to an extent. A lot (or even most) scents are simply unisex, just in different aisles.

I think it's mainly due to the marketing strategies from the fragrance houses, I don't see why anybody should strictly adhere to what these companies tell you. If you like it, then i say go for it.

I normally prefer mens fragrances because they're not as sickly sweet or fruity like a lot womens fragrances tend to be. I love Marc Jacobs Men in particular.

It's all about how it meshes with your skin IMO. I myself wear Egoiste and PI.

well..........on the reverse. I wear mostly women's fragrances. I love musky and sweet notes that I only find in women's fragrances.

Most men's fragrances smell the same to me.............mostly citrussy (which I dont like)

In women's fragrances I wear:
Angel
Prada
Pink Sugar
FlowerBomb


and a few others.

But I find that the ones I wear............turn more musky,amber like on me and there for are more unisex than feminine, so I get away with it.
