    Question perfume like givenchy pi, but for females

    Hi, all. I really like Givenchy Pi, and I'm looking for a perfume whois similar to Pi.

    I really like the oriental woody, in combination with vanilla.

    Which feminine perfumes are similar to Givenchy Pi?

    If you really like Pi then why not just wear Pi because fragrances don't have genders anyone can wear whatever they want, I enjoy A*Men the male version of Angel and I don't care that it's maketed to men, also Pi can easily pass off as a female marketed fragrance so wear it despite the fact that it's a male marketed fragrance

    I understand what you mean by wanting a similar scent that a certain men's scent is, but maby just not quite that masculine? I like Pi, but there is a certain very masculine vibe that prohibits me from wearing it. But there is another one (hah) for me that's even better that Pi: The One for men. It is something I love to wear, and I don't mind that it is marketed for men. It's more wearable to me, being a woman, than Pi would be.

    Bulgari Black
    Gaultier 2
    Fragonard's Vanille
    These are the nearest to Pi I can come up with.

    If you like vanilla with woody notes, then Givenchy's Organza and Organza Indecence both have this. Organza is quite a bit more floral and a bit less woody. OI has minimal florals and is more spicy and woody.

    Other woody vanilla fragrances I like are:
    Kenzo Amour (more refined than Bulgari Black)
    Serge Lutens Douce Amere (more licorice than vanilla)
    Chanel Egoiste (fruits, vanilla, sandalwood)
    Bois 1920 Sandalo e The (lemon vanilla with very light sandalwood)

    I'd have to agree with the suggestion above of Gaultier2.

    I have the same issue with Pi. I love it on men, and I love to spray strips of it and use them to scent my car, but it does have that masculine vibe on me.

    IMO there is nothing that smells like Pi (which personally, I don't like). If you like it, wear it. My friend in Sweden (a girl) wears it all of the time and it smells fantastic on her.

    Lots of great suggestions but I would just go ahead and wear Pi , which is wonderful on men or women.

    I too love Pi but sadly it's just
    not quite right on me.
    And when I really want to smell it
    I make hubby wear it,
    otherwise I wear Gaultier2.
    It's not exactly a smell-alike
    but somehow has a similar vibe.

    I wholeheartedly agree with Organza Indecence, great stuff. Much more sophisticated than Pi.

    I third and fourth the suggestion of wearing what you like and what feels right for you -- if you like Pi, wear it, enjoy and let others enjoy it on YOU!

    However, there is one very good fragrance and very close to Pi in terms of exact match of notes -- and also already suggested by kewart -- Fragonard Vanille, not very well-known and sort of hard to find. Ms.R sent me a large de***nt last year and I have been enjoying it ever since. Basically, type in "dark vanilla" into a Search Box right here in your top right hand corner (between New Posts and Quick Links) and you will come with hundrends of posts mentioning various scents. There are many variations on deep and broody vanilla mixed with precious woods with my personal favorites being La Maison de La Vanille Noire de Mexique and Rochas Absolu.

    No way a female who digs Pi would like that. I think the rubber is too prominent in Black as well. Its funny how many women like this stuff, Pi that is. I saw a young lady drag her boyfriend towards a bottle in a shop last fall. Not cool at all.
