Dear FANTASTIC MAN,
I am surprised that a scent’s so-called feminity can still raise concerns.
When it comes to perfumery, I always quote Jacques Cavallier who declared that ‘Scents do not have gender. Nothing is forbidden in a fragrance as long as it provides us with pleasure’.
I wear TOM FORD’s Black Orchid though it is marketed for women. The philtre’s focal identity – sensual and dark – makes everyone question a man’s taste, personality and lifestyle before he utters a single word. So why don’t we all “spray hers”?

Dear PIERRE A. M.
What a wonderful scent philosophy! Many thanks for bringing it to light.
Like the way you think, Pierre.
. . and, presumably, the way you smell.
Fully agree with Pierre A. M. A scent ought to fit an individual, not a gender. } Wie man so schön sagt – erlaubt ist, was (einem) gefällt.
