    Default Feminine perfumes - which ones do you own

    Which feminine perfumes do you own and use ? And do tell why, if you care.
    Not unisex, but perfumes directed to women.

    I personally only own one, Guerlain Samsara, usually im not much to spicy perfumes but this combined with ylang and jasmin makes it almost perfect.

    Mitsouko
    Shalimar
    Chamade
    Tabu
    Magie Noire
    Aromatics Elixir
    Opium
    Habanita
    Cabochard
    Midnight Poison

    These are the ones I own. If too floral I layer them with patchouli oil.

    My wife has several I sometimes use:

    Chanel 19
    Paco Rabanne's Metal
    Pierre Cardin's Choc
    VC&A's First

    Shiseido Feminite du Bois - the best violet-cedar oriental there is; terrific soapy unisex drydown
    Robert Piguet Visa EdP - immortelle peach-cobbler suede; I can't help smiling when I wear it
    Robert Piguet Bandit EdP - dark, fresh, bitter leather; so ballsy it had to be sold to women

    L'Heure Bleue EdP - the original bittersweet oriental
    Mitsouko EdP - the original peach chypre
    Shalimar EdP - the original civety vanilla oriental
    Apres l'Ondee EdT - when experiencing sadness isn't enough and you have to smell like it too
    Chamade EdT - Creamy green floral with enveloping warmth, no masculine equivalent
    Vol de Nuit EdT - Green woody floral with no masculine equivalent of requisite quality


    Mostly, I own them because they are wonderful and there are no substitutes.

    Black Orchid, because I love how it smells. Although, lately, I've gotten a headache the last couple wears. Hopefully this doesn't continue.

    I own:

    Cabaret
    Jean-Louis Scherrer (EDT and EDP)
    Tabu


    I own Scherrer because it's the greatest chypre ever and I love it. I own Cabaret because it's a really good rose chypre, and I bought Tabu because I love patchouli and I'd heard it's a patchouli bomb. Not crazy about Tabu, though.

    I have on my wish list Magie Noire, Mitsouko EDP and Lancome Cuir

    Any fragrance that should not be worn in public, should be worn in public.

    14 out of my wardrobe's 38 are classified as feminines. Many of them have already been mentioned by the others.

    Default Re: Feminine perfumes - which ones do you own

    Quite a few, many mentioned above.

    Specifically from Amouage I like Epic Woman, Lyric Woman and Memoir Woman and I'll put in a plug for a couple more Guerlains, Attrape Coeur & Sous le Vent, both of which I like a lot. Acqua di Parma Profumo is another one that's noteworthy IMO.

    PS You know, scratch Profumo - not because it's not excellent, but because I have not seen any marketing that specifically targets women for this one, so in that sense it's 'neutral' (as opposed to marketed as unisex) with no ads and no 'Pour Femme' after the name. The others are overtly marketed towards to women by their makers.

    As of now:

    Hiris
    Gold Woman
    Lyric Woman
    West Side
    Shalimar
    A la Nuit
    Vanilia
    Feminite du Bois
    (Shiseido, but it's almost finished)

    Why: Because personally, I am not sure what smells masculine or feminine anymore.....

    Oh, I used to own Samsara too, it's really good..

    Question to all of you saying Opium. Are you speaking of the original opium or opium PH?

    20% of my wardrobe. I wear them all on a regular basis.


    Histoires de Parfums 1876 (2001)
    Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Pamplelune (1999)
    Chanel Cristalle (1974)
    Serge Lutens Féminité du Bois (1992)
    Guerlain Jicky (1889)
    Issey Miyake Le Feu D'Issey (1998)
    Guerlain Mitsouko (1919)
    Chanel No. 19 (1971)
    Guerlain Philtre d'Amour (2000)
    Guerlain Shalimar (1925)
    Guerlain Vol de Nuit (1933)

    My Mitsouko, Shalimar and Vol de Nuit are all extraits (pure perfume). My interest for female marketed scents started when I was looking for green fragrances with galbanum ("green" is a fragrance style that for unknown reasons is vastly ignored by the male fragrance marketing people) and also when I wanted to experience extraits. My taste for orientals has then made it very easy to adopt the great Guerlain classics.
