This morning I didn't fancy putting on any of my perfumes, so decided to wear some of dh's Chanel Allure (for men obv). I really, really like it on me! I don't even think it smells particularly masculine - it seems to on dh, but doesn't now I am wearning it. I am now pondering how to get away with nicking it without him noticing.
I was a big fan of CK One back in the day, and I've worn Cool Water in the past, but didn't like that one as much; it smelt more obviously aftershave-y. Are there any other boy-scent thieves out there?
Some good ones to steal from the boys: Eau Sauvage, Dior; Antaeus and Egoiste, Chanel; Yatagan by Caron. I also love vintage Paco Rabanne pour Homme and Azzaro pour Homme. They are very manly, but I love them.
Some of my female friends really love Fahrenheit by Dior and Dior Homme.
If you like woody, mossy or citrusy scents or anything with lavender, men's department has a much better selection than women's.
Me too. I've worn aftershave for 25 years!!!! It's one called Roma by Laura Biagiotti. I've had so many compliments over the years too and when I try something different I always end up coming back to it again. It's hard to get hold of (usually I get it in duty free on my way back from hols). I can't imagine what it would be like on a man though. It smells very feminine imo. There are very few women's perfumes I like or that suit me.
Yep I wear dh's Dolce & Gabbana, it's the male version of the red woman's D&G, in a dark blue velvet box. It's light and fresh, loads of people have asked me what I'm wearing when I put it on, I love it
