this is the men's fragrance although I occasionally 'steal' it for myself...Yves Saint Laurent YSL ...also has the version La Nuit sp? but it isn't as irresistible/intoxicating as this one

I'm quite certain it's a men's fragrance. Before I bought it as a gift, I looked for it at department stores, on Ulta, Sephora and eBay to compare prices and on all of these it was classified as male rather than unisex.

This cologne is meant for men, but it is light enough that a woman could probably get away with wearing it. If you can, go to Sephora and spray a few spritzes of the cologne on you. Live with it for a few hours and see what you think.

Question
Do men like this frangrance when it's worn by a woman?
My boyfriend and I recently went shopping in order to pick a fragrance for me to wear that he liked the smell of. Of all the fragrances in Sephora, he liked YSL L'Homme best on me! I am a bit hesitant to wear it since it's a men's fragrance. Women who wear this fragrance: how did men respond to it? Did they find it to be too masculine?

I'd go for it!! Must work better with your body chemistry. I was trying fragrences (at a major department store). I liked Bulgari "chrystaline". The sales associate suggested I try the men's version. We both agreed the men's version is more "sensual" (for lack of a better word) on me. My husbad really likes it on me - that sold me!!!!!!

I think it's sweet enough for you to pull it off.

But keep in mind, just because it's labeled as "men's," doesn't mean you can't wear it! It's just a label. I work in men's fragrances in a department store, and women buy men's fragrances for themselves all the time. There's nothing wrong with it. L'Homme is a beautiful fragrance, and you're allowed to enjoy it just as much as any man :)

I purchased this scent for my boyfriend and he loved it. But I also find myself sneaking in a few sparys on my wrist before we leave the house. I personally like scents that aren't flowery and I would wear this cause it smells great but not overly masculine ( you can barely tell it's a scent for men). I think it can pass as a women's scent and no one has told me I smelled like a man so far. :D

Definitely good for spring and summer. It's not like those "sport" scents, but still has a fresh and crisp spice overlying the woodsy undertones. Keep in mind this is coming from a male's point of view. I'm not sure how it would do on a woman. I imagine that if you like how it smells on you, then you'll do just fine with it in the spring and summer.

Go to sephora and they can not only get you paper sample but send you home with a tiny spray bottle. I tried ordering on line with giftcard and promo code plus debit card and just didn't work out. I told the cashier that I was upset about not receiving my free samples and one happen to be a frangrance and they sent me home with 3 tiny spray bottle samples. Go see them! lol

I do not knwo about a paper sample, however, I went to the store and requested a sample and one of the employees made me a spray bottle sample like you get at makeup counters. I am assuming they would be able to mail you something like this if you called customer service, but, they definitely will do it for you in stores!

Samples are a great way to try new products & we include three free samples with every Sephora.com order. The sample selection is listed on our website and changes frequently, so check back often to see what we're offering. At this time we are unable to send custom samples from our warehouse. Another great way to try new products is to visit your local Sephora store. At the store, a Cast Member can make a tester for you of any products that we carry. They can also answer questions for you and make recommendations for other products. To find a store near you, check out our store locator. Thanks!

Something scent-free or go with the perfume's body cream if you can find it. I believe it is too strong to be paired with another perfume. :)

Honestly, the most complimentary lotion i've found is the regular, run of the mill, Suave or Vaseline Men's cologne. It's complimentary without being overpowering. There's nothing worse than drowning yourself in a fragrance! Ugh!

I would use something unscented so it doesn't interfere with the scent. Try Bliss Naked body butter. That way your skin is still hydrated so the fragrance lasts longer and you still smell the same. If you HAVE to use a scented one, I would maybe pick something light and citrus, or verbena.

Has anyone tried the deodorant?
I'm a fan of the fragrance and was interested in purchasing the deodorant as well. Has anyone tried the deodorant? Is it long-lasting? Does it work as a deodorant and an anti-perspirant? Any pro's or con's? Thanks in advance for any help.
