    Lots of em. You have to attack fragrances with your eyes closed. If you like the scent, then go for it. These are a few that strike my fancy:

    Light Blue by D&G
    Hidden Fantasy by Britney Spears
    Absynthe by Christian LaCroix
    Lolita Lempicka by LL
    Hypnotic Poison by Dior
    Aqua Fiorentina by Creed

    I enjoy Chanel #5, 19 and 22 and Sarah Jessica Parker Lovely among many other "feminines".

    You need to try them for yourself. What is "feminine" to you may not be "feminine" to others. I personally wear fragrances on how they smell, not on how they are marketed/labeled.

    There is nothing of the ones I own (and I also own some vintage stuff) that I haven't yet worn to the office. Honestly, nobody has ever commented. Just have the guts if you feel comfortable and like it

    Yes, I know that. But by asking others gives you a hint of what works and what's not.

    I do! Almost exclusively. I'd say 8 out of 10 I use are 'pour femme'!
    Just check out my wardrobe, if one didn't know better, one would
    think it was that of a lady!

    Most of Diors lady scents can be used by men;
    Diorella; Dioressence; Diorissimo; Midnight Poison;
    Hypnotic Poison; Miss Dior; Dolce Vita ...

    Most of Chanels numbered ones can go too;
    5; 18; 19; 22 ...

    Angel by Thierry Mugler is another bestseller amoung males.

    Bal à Versailles; Mitsouko; Obsession; Black Orchid ...

    I could go on and on, it's like our closeted drag queen says;
    'you need to try them for yourself'.

    And believe you me, ppl wouldn't be able to tell the difference,
    if a masculine dude wears a frag pour femme it'll come across
    masculine, simple as that!

    Go for it!

    I'll give you one note that I perceive as "too feminine" for me per se: Tuberose (unless well woven into the fragrance). I think it might have to do with some scent associations from childhood... I bet I'm traumatised (where's my therapy?)

    Lots of them, like FRACAS, BANDIT, ODALISQUE,MAHARDJAH, HABANITA, MITSOUKO, L'HEURE BLEUE, DANS TES BRAS...
    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am.

    Currently, unisex is as far as I wonna go.

    I tested Encre Noire, the feminine version, (got a wrong sample) and it was so feminine it was almost disgusting.

    Siifter, please check a thread I started about a small experiment on gender marking for fragrance.

    http://www.basenotes.net/threads/253...all-experiment

    I personally enjoy Calandre, Cuir de Lancôme, Fleur Oriental, Hiris, L'Eau de Ryokuei, Mitsouko, Nu EdP, Scent Intense, Shalimar, and Shalimar Eau Légère Parfumée . Actually, my wife and I share the same wardrobe. She also likes to try the masculine ones.

    It does not matter what the bottle says, only that you like it and will wear it.

    There are many, many threads on this. The archives have many posts on this subject.

    There are many women, as well, who wear "masculines."

    In the end, does it matter?

    It does matter sometimes when you have friends who are not that into fragrance. Once they find out you wear a womens fragrance, that's all they'll smell, doesn't matter if it's good or bad....but I guess that's irrelevant to this thread.

    Count me in. The followings could be conveniently worn, and I like them a lot: Coco, Coco Mademoiselle, Angel, No.5, No.19, Hypnose, several of Guerlain, etc.

    Default Re: Who wears fragrances that is marked as women?

    The only one I tried is Lauder Private Collection, which I find to be less floral and more wearable than the somewhat similar Grey Flannel.

    But it's still a "sometimes" fragrance.

    Bal a Versailles - Jean Desprez
    Hypnotic Poison - Dior
    Midnight Poison - Dior
    Chanel's exclusive line
    Cabochard - Gres

    Pretty much everything listed in the above posts. I'll go ahead and say now-- it's a good idea to just stop caring about how or whom the fragrance is marketed to. There are so many great fragrances out there that may be marketed towards women or even say woman on the bottle, but who cares right? If you're comfortable with the way it smells on you, then why not??

    DO IT!
