    Little did I know that I had reached Goddess status...

    I'd consider Schiaparelli Zut, a great spicy oriental with an audacious name and packaging to boot!

    Bulgari Black. Very original.

    The Basenotes reviews are at: http://www.basenotes.net/ID26120268.html

    Closely related to Chanel 'Cuir de Russie', Caron 'Tabac Blond' and Gres 'Cabochard'. All huge beauties.

    Sold as a "shared" gender fragrance.

    Luca Turin, if he is familiar to you, considers this one of his top 10 modern fragrances.

    It is terrific stuff. For a woman who believes in confidence, is an original and has some attitude.

    A plus is that, since it was designed for men as well as women, it was produced as Eau de Toilette. (Bulgari's marketing people know men get nervous about wearing Parfum or Eau de Parfum.) It is inexpensive - 2.7 ounces a mere $30. Don't let the price make you think less of this. It is a great creation. The creator was Annick Ménardo a highly respected perfumeur. It is a BIG fragrance.

    Hi, I'd go with Hermes Calèche, a true lady's perfume. Extremely elegant and refined.

    May I suggest Feminite du Bois (Shiseido) as it is a real gem.
    Quite spicy/woodsy and bound to get you noticed.

    I've seen good suggestions here, but I may add Boudoir by Vivienne Westwood.
    It's very potent, very feminine, in the lines of Hypnotic Poison.
    The other one making a real appearance is Narcisse Noir Caron.

    Adding to the list:

    Norma Kamali Perfume (that's what it's called) a very heady floriental bound to turn heads- wow!

    Jil Sander No 4 - rich, lush, floral with Oriental undercurrents.

    Aqaba - a strong, spicy, rose laced with incense.
    Scent is such a lovely, simple pleasure!

    Don't know if you you are a Patchouli fan but I think Jalaine's Patchouli makes a statement. I am often complimented when I wear it by both men and women and it seems to have fabulous staying power on me. Also, I was thrilled to see that Jalaine finally launched her own site which makes sampling a lot cheaper than purchasing them from Aedes or Luckyscent.

    It's at jalainesfragrances.com

    Youth Dew, or Youth Dew Amber Nude. Not a shrinking violet molecule in the whole bottle.

    Well, the ones that seem like they make a "statement" to me are the richer, deeper more classically-styled ones. I'm thinking of Le Parfum de Therese from Malle, and also the Divine women's scents. They smell like "woman" to me, as opposed to so many others, which smell like "girl" to me.

    Smile Re: Looking for a Potent Women's Fragrance.

    I love the strong stuff. I like wearing it to bed. My favorites are:

    1. Krazy Krizia--super strong. Once a lady followed me into the bathroom from the dining room of the restaurant to find out what I was wearing. I have a big bottle. Think it is not hard to find online.

    2. Dior Addict. Really great stuff! A lot like Krazy Krizia.

    3. George Sand from MPG, This one is comforting and strong. Like a good glass of bourbon whiskey.

    4. Latest that is a love/hate thing. Allure Sensuelle. Very strong but great when you want to feel like a cozy cat (Me! all the time).

    How could I have forgotten Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin

    Yes, it's for "Men" but believe me, it's a potent, long-lasting, sweet scent that fit's a Woman just fine IMO. Eh, V!

    YES! I tried the Norma Kamali perfume in Paris last month and wow... a dab from the stopper is all I needed and this one stayed with me for hours! The drydown is also quite hauntingly beautiful. I am buying the Norma Kamali Incense blind as I read that layering them together is nothing short of amazing. Thanks for all the suggestions!!
