Whether you gravitate toward their jeans and sweaters, or the more formal blazers and tux attire, there’s nothing like snagging boyfriend garb. Cozy and sexy, not to mention a time-honored tradition since Coco Chanel stole her own beau’s attire, borrowing from the boys has become widespread.
But why stop with clothes? Men’s fragrance, particularly those that smell astounding when layered, exude an even greater intimacy than slinking into his wardrobe, and we crave those sensual notes found in so many men’s scents. Then again, we are fragrance junkies.
