I was pleasantly surprised by this scent. I assumed it was a women's fragrance and dabbed it on my wrists before realizing that it's a men's cologne! Confession: I like it for myself. I'll ask my husband to try it too, since it smells so good. His cologne rubs off on me anyhow; in this case, I'll be happy about it.
That said, I'd rather not receive men's samples in my women's Birchbox. It doesn't make sense to me, and I can see why women who are single or gay or married to a low-maintenance groomer would be pretty peeved about getting men's products.
