Kylie Minogue Launches Men's Cologne

Cologne: Not Just For Guys

It's not too often that we see female celebrities creating male colognes, but Kylie Minogue is about to play a little role reversal with the launch of her latest fragrance, Inverse for Men ($42). The cologne, inspired by the "complex, colorful" men in Kylie's life, launches in September in Australia, the Netherlands, the UK, and Germany.

The amber-oriental scent will feature top notes of frozen lavender, blood mandarin, and warm spices; middle notes of benzoin, heliotrope, nutmeg, and tonka beans; and base notes of labdanum resin, skin musk, patchouli leaves, condensed milk, and atlas cedarwood. I must admit: while the scent skews a bit masculine, I wouldn't mind dabbing a bit of this hearty scent on my skin.

In fact, Sarah Jessica Parker once told The New York Times that her special blend of fragrances includes Bonne Bell Skin Musk ($14), an Egyptian oil, and "a fairly costly male scent." That scent? It's Comme des Garçons Incense Avignon ($78), an intense, heavy blend. What about you? Are you a fan of wearing men's cologne, or do you tend to stay away from male-inspired scents?

I like the scents that are for both men and women. Since everyone's body chemistry is different, the scents smell different on each person, but very complementory - and sexy.

Oh, and I should mention that calling men's fragrances cologne is just a marketing thing. If a scent has a certain level of concentration, it's a perfume whether it's made for men or women or both.

There are Tom Ford scents that I think are meant for males that I'd check out for myself. Some male fragrances I've read descriptions for don't sound very appealing though.

i love men's cologne, and bought Ed Hardy's Love Is A Gamble for myself. for perfumes, i skew towards the spicy, musky feminine scents, too.
