    I also enjoy Habanita, and if you consider Carnal Flower "feminine" I wear that, too.

    Compared to some, I am way behind the times! I have tons of stuff to try yet...

    I own and wear:

    I think that is all of the ones I have marketed to women.

    My favorites are Chanel Bois des Îles and Caron Tabac Blond. Both of these work very well on my skin.

    The other night I was home wearing Tabac Blond Extrait on my left arm and both Bois des Îles Extrait and Bois des Îles EDT on my right arm. What a trip! I was in olfactory heaven, although I must say would never wear this combination out in public.

    I have also worn Guerlain Mitsouko and Guerlain L'Heure Bleue. I am soon going to be testing some other Guerlain female fragrances, including Shalimar, Jicky, Vol de Nuit, Attrape Coeur, and Apres L'Ondee.

    In the past, I have also worn Chanel Cuir de Russie. I tried a number of other female Carons besides Tabac Blond, but none of them seemed to work very well for me.

    Evogel, you make me smile.

    Lately I too have been using Chanel No.19. Like you I've used Tabac Blond and Poivre in extrait (you and I probably went in together a few years ago on a group purchase of Poivre. I don't get enough chances to wear it, doggone it, but man, does it ever teach you the mastery that Caron can put together).

    I've spent about three days in a row wearing Jolie Madame in edt, because I got multiple bottles from a discount outlet store, and I was digging it strongly, even though it calls to mind women's perfume history. The first half of it is heavy with a lilac note, and then the stuff goes over leathers. Wow. I'll wear it, but I do want to smell it on women very much.

    I got Caron's Bellogia in edp because Equipage turned me on to carnation scents. Bellodgia is da bomb karnazion. Pure and thick.

    Jicky in edt and edp, although I guess the general consensus here is this is as much a man's scent as it is a woman's.

    Robert Piquet's Bandit in edt and edp. A trip. Each a trip. Like variations on Bel Ami. Similar to the old darkness in Jolie Madame too, but each a wonderful and different experience.

    Parure edt I've meant to wear but keep forgetting. I've only shot my wrist a few times with my bottle. I must change this.

    Hiris is a favorite now. What can I say but that I love iris very much. I could go into some superlatives about this blend, but I can't think of them now. The juice deserves them though.

    I used to wear Molinard's Habanita until my mom wanted my bottle. It's close enough to Creed's vintage Tabarome so that I use the latter when I need the feeling. I also have Molinard's Vervienne en Fleurs, which is an edt blend of verbena and jasmine, for the most part. I love verbena in the summer, so I use it then.

    There were a few more on my mental list just now, but I suddenly can't remember them. I guess I'll have to add another post later.

    A compliment to be asked! Thanks.

    I walked into Sephora today and went right the the Tom Ford Black Orchid display. There were 2 SA's present when I picked up the tester. The one woman said, "You know that's for women" I replied, "I know, and there's a lot of men buying this as well." and proceded to do a close spritz to my right wrist. everyone came up to smell it and winced, including myself" I said, this is defintely a dry down fragrance"

    It did hit us all heavy when first sprayed. (of course) It smells awesome to me now.

    It almost reminded me---kind of---that Tom Ford for men is to Black Orchid, what B-men is to Angel.

    To my nose anyway.

    I guess I can see why some men enjoy the more concentrated and longer lasting versions of many women's perfumes. Intensity, longevity and perhaps sillage as well as having a new fragrance.

    I am not in opposition to wearing a female fragrance, I just never found one that I thought I could pull off. I threatened to wear the womens light blue when it came out but decided it was too sweet and floral for me to accomplish. To date, I have never purchased or worn a female fragrance.

    Wow, that's funny. Just yesterday I made a conclusion that Cabochard could be a good fragrance for men. And convinced to try Gardenia from Chanel on. It made me even to write down a blog. And today... I see all this.

    Well - almost any perfume I try on the strip at home I also try on my skin. And I've got some nice idea's for outside as well, while browsing the answers.

    I do wear:
    Cedre, Chypre Rouge, Clair de Musc van SL


    I did try and did like:
    Gardenia Chanel pure and in combination with Clair de Musc SL
    Cabochard Gres
    Mitsouko EDT (wanna EDP now)

    I will surely do try:
    Tuberose Criminelle SL
    Shalimar
    Carnal Flower
    Black Orchid
    and the rest from what is mentioned here or not yet

    And I even may give a try to
    Champs Elysee
    Poison (not sure, wanna find a similar fragrance).

    Never worn female fragrances, but if I were going to, the one that I covet most jealously from my soon-to-be ex wife's collection is Prada Infusion D'Iris. There's talk of a male version of this coming out. I would sleep all night on the pavement to be the first in line for that one.

    I would wear Jicky though and i have a bottle of Eau D'Hermes arriving imminently. I have also just bought on spec (it was really inexpensive) a bottle of Fracas Homme by Piguet just simply because I like the female version so much.

    I couldn't wear a lot of female scents though, they are to feminine on my skin.
