The most obvious one - Rogue Perfumery Mousse Illuminee. Chypre-Siam is great too but that one skews unisex.

Then there's of course the classic Chanel Pour Monsieur EDT. If you don't mind classic powerhouse scents - Chanel Antaeus, Guerlain Derby, Hermes Bel Ami, and Dior Jules would be ones to look at.

One I tried recently you might want to check out although getting a bottle might prove tricky being discontinued/vintage. Carven Monsieur Carven a floral chypre that's quite delightful. I've seen some reviewers comparing it to Opium Pour Homme but never having tried Opium I can't comment. I could very easily see a lady wearing this.

And of course there's always... Geoffrey Beene Grey Flannel but that is somewhat of an acquired taste!
