With the opening of Almine’s Fragrance webshop we’ve gotten one very good question over and over again: Can I use masculine fragrances as a woman, or vice versa? Below you will find an example of one such question and Almine’s answer…
Q: “I am drawn to some of the male scents and really would like to purchase more for myself. I have bought Patchouli and actually wear this quite often even though I am female. Do you know, or has Almine ever mentioned whether this is okay or not? I just find that right now I want to wear a mixture of the female and male scents, so I do. I have my eye on a number of scents and once again, the majority is male, so any clarification on this would be wonderful. By the way I truly love these scents, I feel like I am surrounded by such beauty when I wear them.”
A: “I am so glad you appreciate the androgynous gifts of these incredible flower oils! It is the way it was meant to be. With some of them we had a hard time deciding whether to call them male or female essences, because the qualities they enhance are found in both men and women. Just enjoy whichever ones you are drawn to. They will be exactly right for you.” ~ Almine
