Do you, or would you?
What mens colognes/fragrances would you like to wear, or do you think would work on women?
I personally like Dior Homme Intense.

I sometimes wear Gucci Homme, it's a very smokey incensey smell. Bought it for DH as I love the smell but he won't wear it.

I have to be careful and literally just spray into the air once and walk through - I think it would be too much if I squirted it on like I normally do
I wear Coco Chanel normally

I wear Marc Jacobs Bang and Grey Vetiver by Tom Ford - I do wear some women's perfumes but find the men's ones much nicer and the fragrances tend to last longer on my skin.

Tom Ford Grey Vertiver and Aqua D Parma for me

QueefLatina Sun 24-Feb-13 21:47:07

I like Acqua Di Parma in the summer.

I don't care if it's for old Italian men!

noddyholder Sun 24-Feb-13 21:50:10

I wear prada a lot in summer.

BelindaCarlisle Sun 24-Feb-13 21:50:58

noddyholder Sun 24-Feb-13 21:54:20

Tim Firs Arabian Wood and Neroli Portofino, Coach for Men and occasionally... Aramis!

Spoonful Sun 24-Feb-13 22:02:05

I always wear DH's fragrances, I just prefer them usually. Not sure why, they must use an ingredient I like in men's that they don't in women's scents.

OrchidFlakes Sun 24-Feb-13 22:02:22

Tim Firs....WTF?! Tom Ford!!!

I used to wear "Fahrenheit" years ago...still love the smell of it, and dp wears it!

buttercrumble Sun 24-Feb-13 22:08:16

Tom ford mens fragrance all the way, i love the woody intense scents. A lot of womens perfumes are too flowery and sweet for me.....

happyAvocado Sun 24-Feb-13 22:17:11

I wear A*Mean by T.Muggler, it suits me and stays on my skin for longer than any other fragrance

ZombiesAreClammyDodgers Sun 24-Feb-13 22:44:23

Fahrenheit by Dior.

ZombiesAreClammyDodgers Sun 24-Feb-13 22:45:08

Meant to say, it has the most beautiful tobacco but not tobacco smell.

Armani Code smells lovely

ZombiesAreClammyDodgers Sun 24-Feb-13 22:53:38

And Calvin Klein Eternity!

Mominatrix Sun 24-Feb-13 23:27:13

Several of the Creed scents are unisex.

armagh Sun 24-Feb-13 23:39:37

Ronan Keatings Mens fragrance is lovely and fresh.smile

I wear Acqua di Parma sometimes, also I used to wear Eau Sauvage during my university days.

LulaPalooza Mon 25-Feb-13 00:36:08

I much prefer Victor & Rolf Spice Bomb to Flower Bomb, but my GBF wears it so I can't.

Yotamsrazor Mon 25-Feb-13 02:09:25

Roma by Laura Biagiotti. Have worn that forever and love it, but just can't imagine a guy wearing it. I've tried their women's Roma but don't like it.

novelsituation Mon 25-Feb-13 06:29:55

Another vote here for Victor and Rolf's Spicebomb. Great on cold days.

Eliza22 Mon 25-Feb-13 08:15:03

Chanel Allure Sport Cologne. Gorgeous.
L'Occitan Eau de Toilette .... The lavender peppery one that matches the After Shave Balm. Nothing OTT about this lovely, gentlemanly fragrance.

Caron Lavande and Miller Harris Tabac

thanks for all the great recommendations
will most def be trying some of these out this week!

ladymanpong Mon 25-Feb-13 09:04:07

Geoffrey Beene's Grey Flannel.


Never come across wearing it. I like to think of it as a compliment to my individuality, though some websites say it smells of a commonly available fabric conditioner in the US. Where I am not.

ladymanpong Mon 25-Feb-13 09:04:41

That should be "anyone else".

Bearcrumble Mon 25-Feb-13 09:08:51

czech and speake's Neroli.

Grey Vetiver - Tom Ford.

auldspinster Mon 25-Feb-13 12:21:39

Eau Savauge by Dior
Mouchoir de Monsieur by Guerlain
Bulgari Black (which was marketed as a unisex fragrance but is usually found in the men's bit)
Be Delicious for Men by DKNY (didn't notice the 'for men' bit in tiny writing)

selee Mon 25-Feb-13 15:28:06

Spritzed Chanel Platinum Egoiste on today - very, very nice indeed, want to look at Tom Ford ones, as well as others. Great posts folks!

Joey8 Mon 25-Feb-13 15:53:27

I've never worn any myself but my niece wears the Abercombie & Fitch cologne, have to admit it does smell rather nice! She sprays it on her clothes, so that they can smell like the ones in the store!

umiaisha Mon 25-Feb-13 16:36:05

I wear OH's Jo Malone Oud quite a bit and love it. Think it could be unisex though??

VivaLeBeaver Mon 25-Feb-13 16:43:08

Tom fords Tuscan leather is very nice.

selee Sun 03-Mar-13 20:39:14

Thanks for the further suggestions..need to do some serious browsing!! I sprayed YSL L'homme today and it is to die for.

Dior Homme - the iris is lovely
Fleurs de Male - the JP Gaultier one is wearable.
Encre Noir - the male one is perfect, the woman's one just sweet nonsense.
