Where a forest and a barbershop collide...
I had zero preconception of the nature of Amouage OPUS II, aside from the usual expectation that the ingredients would be excellent. The moment I donned this juice, the first words out of my mouth were: "This is masculine." Was it the dollop of creamy lavender? Or the abundance of woods and green trees? Or perhaps the absinthe? In fact they all conspired to the same conclusion.

So, no, I personally would not classify this scent as unisex, except in the world where we altogether reject the validity of that distinction. Yes, it would be possible for women to wear this perfume, but I probably would not want to very often. I definitely would not select this among the Amouage perfumes to purchase, because to my nose, it smacks of a forest in a barbershop. Or is it a barbershop in a forest?

Looking at the notes, it becomes clear: OPUS II *is* a simulacrum of a barbershop in a forest! And it's a nice one, to be sure: a high-class Italian barbershop which happens to have been built in the middle of a vast forest of tall evergreen trees. It combines the suave appeal of the well-scented gent with the rugged appeal of Paul Bunyan in the woods. I am sure that this would work well for many men, but it's definitely not for me. Would I like to smell it on the men around me? Sure, why not?
