I've been told that when it first hit the shelves, it was cross-marketted, which is to say they carried it at both the Women's as well as the Men's Fragrance counters. Same thing was done with the recent Kingdom
by McQueen. Over at Basenotes
we have a saying: "boys wear men's fragrances, girls wear women's fragrances and adults wear whatever the hell they want."
And to the original poster, I recommend looking into YSL's Live Jazz
and Bvlgari Aqva
. Creed's MI
is also an EXCELLENT recommendation, based upon your tastes, and its worth noting that the new(ish) Sean John Unforgiveable
is an almost exact clone thereof, for less money.
