Meeting another woman who wears your signature perfume scent is like showing up to a party and seeing someone else in the same dress. Though most of us want a scent that's distinctly ours, when anyone can walk into a store and buy the same bottle, it's tough to be unique. One solution: Use a men's cologne instead. I'm not talking about a musky, manly scent like the one your dad wears, but a cleaner, more unisex cologne that can take on a more girly tone when mixed with your body chemistry. A few years ago, I discovered a very unmanly men's cologne that I love, and it has since become my signature. (And no, I'm not telling you what it is!) Here are some scents to sample.
