    Aside from the scents you have mentioned... I've worn these scents 'marketed as feminine' :

    Eau Des Merveilles,
    Baiser du Dragon,
    Samsara
    Dune
    Prada
    Habanita
    Nu
    Omnia
    Black Cashmere

    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:

    McQueen Kingdom
    Creed Fleurs de Bulgarie
    Hermes Eau des Merveilles

    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.

    I wear Tom Ford's "Black Orchid", and Paul & Joe's "Blanc" out of the house, and the very occasional puff of Narciso for Her around the home when I crave its white-hot musc.

    All of these are worn quite infrequently, but are enjoyed nonetheless.

    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.

    Shalimar (any concentration, but esp. edt and edp)
    Kingdom (edp)
    Aromatics Elixir (Clinique's best -- what's not to like?)
    Black Cashmere (definitively unisex in the first place)
    Bal a Versailles (edt only -- kissing cousin to Shalimar and Habanita)
    Habanita (any concentration)
    Aliage (Aramis 900 on acid)
    Azuree (Aramis' slightly nelly, terribly dapper cousin.)
    Cinnabar (The poor man's JHL.)
    Magie Noire (try it -- you'll love it)
    Je Reviens (bath oil concentration mixed with pure patchouli oil -- a secret indulgence)
    Tabac Blond (when I can find it without having to mortgage the house)

    I have worn a few in the past....but currently..Le Labo Patchouli 24. According to the BN directory, it's a female scent....strange, but the only one I wear now.

    Before, it was Tabac Blond Parfum..and a few others.

    Sometimes I wear my girlfriend's "vageen" on my face and neck, but I have yet to receive any compliments. Maybe I should switch brands?
