Does anyone wear a scent predominantly for men rather than perfume and if so, which one?

I love love love the smell of some fresh aftershaves that men wear, I find a lot of them fresher and longer lasting that perfume. I'd love to buy one for me but wonder if anyone else does this and if so, which one?

I don't but I would (if I could justify adding yet more perfumes to my collection!). I really like Eau Sauvage. And there's a Jo Malone one that I think is aimed at men - I think it's Black Cedar and something - which is lovely. I really like sandalwoody smells which are often marketed more at men.

I wear a unisex scent - Maxed Out by 4160 Tuesdays. Initially it smelled very much like an aftershave to me. Now it just smells like my fav scent.

I wore Grey Vetiver by Tom Ford for a while.

Putting the boot on the other foot, DS(15) wears my Aqua di Gioa all the blooming time.

I wear Dior Homme, Terre d'Hermes and Carthusia 1684. I love spicy, woody scents and find men's scents a lot better for that.

I don't but Issey Miyake is really nice

I wear Aramis Devin - hard to get nowadays, but it's available in Jersey. Most "female" perfumes smell too sweet on me.

Neroli Portofino by Tom Ford. Love it.

Yes, sauvage by Dior love it.

Le labo Santal 33 is very gender neutral. I get loads of comments when i wear it. 95% very positive, the rest not so much grin

I love jo malone's amber and lavender which is v fresh and musky- I don't know if it is aimed at men though. My DM wears pomegranate noir from JM and again it's v fresh and masculine.
