Steal Your Boyfriend's Scent

Steal Your Boyfriend's Scent

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.

L'Eau d'Issey Pour Homme
, $50 for a 2.5 oz. bottle, available here.

Carolina Herrera 212 Men Eau de Toilette
, $42 for a 1.7 oz. bottle, available here

Two more scents to try, so

Valentino V Pour Homme Eau de Toilette
, $47 for a 1.7 oz. bottle, available here

Clean Men Eau de Toilette
, $79 for a 4.5 oz bottle, available here

I've been wearing Cacharel for Men since junior school, and I'm still not bored of it. It doesn't smell too "male", but more or less like neutral nutmeg. Personal, and I love it! Allows me to contrast with my more chick perfumes.

I love wearing mens cologne. I have two brothers and lots of male cousins so I'malways stealing theirs! I really like Dior pour homme, so I carry a small tester bottle in my bag.

You know, most fragrances were unisex until not THAT long ago. And there are companies like Serge Lutens, Frederic Malle, The Different Company etc... that are bringing back the perfume is just perfume thing with non gender specific scents.

i used to work at clinique and i would wear happy for men sometimes. i would only wear it during the fall and winter, otherwise it's a little heavy, but it smells great, very clean. the men's body wash is the best!
