Savoir Faire promotes finding one’s individual style and going with it. Setting yourself apart from the crowd with your own individual signature, and so should fragrance be a signature. One of my girlfriends used to raid my colognes and after shaves and a bottle of Monsieur Lanvin would disappear in the blink of an eye. She was incredibly feminine and once she sprayed herself with the said Lanvin, she would have men falling at her feet.
So not only is the following list for the ladies, it is also for you gentleman. I wear or have worn all of the following at some stage or another, and love them. Don’t be put off by the fact these are ‘women’s’ perfumes as ‘men’s’ colognes are perfumes with just different notes than women’s.
Here are some of my top perfumes which I think translate and work quite well on a man, taking on entirely different characteristics than if they were worn by a lady. As usual with the classics of yesteryear not all readily available, but out there!
