How do you feel about the oud trend?

...I think as far as men's frags go, the oud trend is here to stay for a while. In my opinion the house of Montale has many oud frags and most are wonderful such as Black Aoud- a cambodian aoud blended with indonesian patchouli and layered over a combination of mandarin,musk and rose petals...yummy!! And Aoud Cuir D' Arabie- a combo of leather, tobacco and dry burnt wood notes, here the aoud produces all it's strength and softness. WoW!! There are many more including more feminine scents.However, Montale is not cheap though all there frags are EDP's and have excellent longevity and sillage.

What feminine frags can a man wear in your opinion?

Re: A "Shalimar" that does not smell like "Sh
...Pipette:When this flanker came out, it made waves. Not only was it of good quality, it also gained interest among the men. It is fruity and has a tonka bean dry down. This scent is only riding on the name, but could very well stand on its own."Shalimar Parfum Initial" by GuerlainI am not a fan of Shalimar Intitial. I find it too sweet and nothing like the Vintage Shalimar or at least from the 80's backwards.

What feminine frags can a man wear in your opinion?

...Dulcemio:And I will add these two from your wishlist that I am very familiar with:"Ambre Gris""Balmain de Balmain"Again, gender neutral IMO because of a nice balance between sweet and dry. And very little or no vanilla.Even though I am a vanilla addict, I completely understand people (especially men) who eschew vanilla, because I used to be one of those people. And while in theory I'd like to be able to think of all perfumes as gender neutral, my heart tells me that an obvious and dominant vanilla note has a way of feminizing the fragrance it's in.I don't mind vanilla in the basenotes of a fragrance if it's well blended.

Vintage Thrills

...I have quite a few vintage frags in my collection and I'm always on the hunt for the next one on my wishlist. It can be time consuming and money consuming as well, but I have to know how the original smelled! With all the reformulations going on, I just can't bear not knowing what the vintage smelled like ,then after that I can probably live with the reformulations. At least I can say "I remember when".I am looking out for these vintages:MitsoukoL'Heure BleueShalimarParfum SacreNuit De NoelWorth Haute ConcentrateVintage PoloGucci pour hommeJicky EDPBellaodia parfumBalenciaga Cialenga, Paris, Le Dix, RunbaWeil de Weil edpZebiline by WWeilMolyneux CaptainMilyneux KiplimgCaron InfiniCaron Moi ez1000 Jran Patou edpand just go down my wishlist.....

What feminine frags can a man wear in your opinion?

...Hello Ladies and Gents!I have many masculine frags that I love,but my true love is feminine frags. My collection is 2/3 feminine and I am still exploring the feminine fragrance world as you can see by my wishlist. I don't see gender division in frags because I like to wear what I like and be myself. I would still like to get your opinions on which frags a man can wear?

The animalic bad girls

...Le Baiser du Dragon fits this category. A strange frag with basenotes at the top!? I would still wear it out though!

Vétiver de Frédéric - Frédéric Haldimann

So many great vetivers...

...I have Guerlain Vetiver Extreme, which I love because it has great longevity and sillage and now I find out it's been discontinued! I had better stock up on some back up bottles! :(

Fresco for Men is an almost dead ringer for Creed's Aventus

...I was strolling around some of the perfume blog sites when I came across this story about a frag called Fresco by Ilum Dean that is supposed to be a near knock off of Creed's Aventus. My interest was peaked! So, I went to the website and ordered a sample. It came and low and behold, it does smell a great deal like Aventus! It has great longevity and sillage for an EDT and you can buy it for only $29.95 at www.DrScent.com You really should try a sample!

Girly Man Fumes

...My motto is be yourself...Everyone else is Taken! So, I wear what I like with out worrying about what others think. Actually 2/3 of my collection is made up of feminine frags or ,if you like, unisex. When I started exploring feminine frags I was a bit paranoid about wearing them out in public, but I kept reminding myself to be myself and I got over it and I'n so much more happier. I have beautiful masculine and feminine frags and I love them all!
