Oh the dilemna.  
I'm planning my next order, and among the imps I would like to order (mostly masculine scents) I want to try more of the Wanderlust oils. I have a thing for exotic/oriental scents, but I've had a pretty bad experience with Kathmandu and found Morocco nice though too light for my skin. Tried Machu Picchu as well but it was too candy-like for me. Now I'm thinking of ordering imps of Cairo, Athens, and maybe Silk Road, but even after reading the reviews on the forums I still have no real idea on what they're like gender-wise (I know, "most bpal oils are gender neutral!"), and regardless of gender I was interested in reading you guys about 'em. Anyone tried them out before? Any other suggestion from the Wanderlust oils, beside Whitechapel and Port-au-Prince?

SANTA EULÀRIA DES RIU
Sri Lanka
Tintagel <3
TOMBSTONE <3 <3 <3

My BF wears Tombstone and also wears Antique Lace which is why I put some of the more "girly" scents on there. Your skin chemistry will manly 'em up. Ususually :)

I am thinking here of Lyonesse and Silk Road in particular. I think both would be truely magnificent on a man. When my bottle of Lyonesse comes, you can be sure I'll try it on the boy.

Re: addendum
Thanks for the input. :) I've been hesitating about several oils you're mentionning, so any opinion may help.

Re: addendum
Ultimately, ya just gotta try. Skin chemistry rules all here. For example, I absorb the scent of violets. I lvoe them, but I can't wear them. So something like Saturnalia (Violets and vertiver) is all vertiver on me. If you happen to be like me, you would have a very masculine perfume there. If you happen to amp sweetness, it'll smell much more "girly" because we tend to associate sweet with girls.

Don't be afraid! Slather and sniff. If you want a guide, try to keep away from florals. But that's a bad guide really because my guy loves (and is very sexy in) some floral scents. Zombie is a favorite of his (and mine too :)

Re: addendum
I've mostly avoided the floral until now, but some of the more exotic scents interest me and are described as sorta floral, so I think I might as well try them. ;) This was more of a "I plan to try this, let me know if you have any other idea or if you've had a bad experience with them" entry I guess. :)

Thanks for your help.
