Breaking the Rules of Fragrance

There's an article says,'' Breaking the Rules of Fragrance'' on the Magazine ''Stylist''
The subtitle says'' Fed up with florals, women are now turning to musky male fragrances. 
Time to throw away the scent rulebook.''

Now girls and women seen to have a totally different taste, wearing boyfriend's jeans, and the popularity of brogues, tuxedos.
The line between female and male is becoming vague; Also, The archetypes of male and female scents
are being broken down, some people seems now love the innovation of new gender-neutral perfumes. 

Female scents are usually heavy floral notes and man's are wood, musky notes.
Fabrice Penot, co-founder of Le Labo, a brand that produces non-gender specific fragrances said,''
But as a fragrance-wearer, this limits what you can express yourself with.''
The article gave five men's fragrances for women: 
There are Christian Dior, Eau Sauvage, Creed, Green Irish Tweed, Hermes, Terre d'Hermes,
Caron, Pour Un Homme De Caron, Tom Ford, Grey Vetiver.

In the end of article quoted what Tom Ford has said,
Tom Ford, whose globally adored fragrance range is like traditional French perfumes in that it is not 
targeted at one particular gender, said, ''Ultimately, choosing a scent is personal and primal and should be
decided not by gender but by inhaling and asking, does it smell good to me?''
