Tell me your impressions about Hiris and your opinion on a male wearing it. Of course I know one can wear anything one wants but do you think that Hiris would be clocked as a women's fragrance? It's a beautiful scent.
Hiris is one of my personal favorites, but it took me some time to get used to it. Once I fell in love with Bois Farine by L'Artisan, I began hunting for other "doughy" scents and re-visited Hiris. It was instant love. The iris butter, combined with only very subtle floral overtones makes this one quite easy for a man to wear, imho. As the scent progresses it warms on the skin leaving a faint trace of woods and iris root. Magnificent! Moreover, as this scent is not quite the average designer scent in terms of popularity, I would think the chances of someone sniffing you and exclaiming, "Get outta here! You're wearing women's perfume, you nasty Perv!" are quite low.
Offering advice would truly be like preaching to the choir, 'cause you said it best, "I know one can wear anything one wants."
p.s. - there is also a body powder spray in the Hiris scent that is PHENOMENAL! Goes on as a liquid spray and changes to a powder on the skin and layers well with the scent.
