I think this is more masculine than feminine to me. It has a spicy fougere aura of the old times, a kind of a formal aroma. I think it's interesting too that something on it produces to me the illusion of suntanned skin. It's not original, but it's a kind of fragrance that is not done this way so frequently these days. It opens more intense and it ends more soft, spicy and more close to you. Pretty scent, worthy of trying at least.
