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

I like Acqua Di Parma in the summer.

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

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!

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.

iloveshortshorts Sun 24-Feb-13 22:51:59

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.

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.
