    Default The Most Feminine Smelling Fragrance that you Own and Love?

    What is the Most Feminine Smelling Fragrance that you own and love? It may even be a feminine fragrance and no where near unisex.

    My fragrance would be: Kenzo Power

    Kenzo Power is a male fragrance, yet there is not a hint of masculinity in it. Just sweet florals and powder. A woman would think it was a feminine fragrance.

    Le Troisieme by Caron is too "pretty" for a man they say. But for me, it's just perfect.
    Dior Homme as a lot of people say has that lipstick vibe which makes it feminine. Personally, I don't think of DH as smelling feminine.
    Mitsouko, I don't need to justify this. It's just simply gorgeous.

    For me, it's either Chanel no.5 Eau Première, Jasmin Impératrice Eugénie, Lorenzo Villoresi Ylang Ylang, or Neil Morris For Takashimaya. They all have a feminine vibe, but Ylang Ylang is probably the most femme. Eau Première is pretty strong citrus and light on the aldehydes. JIE is so old-school it almost passes for an evening guy scent now. NMFT is very unisex, but just a bit on the feminine side.

    They're all just a short jump from Kenzo Power. Amazing fragrances, and worth owning.

    I love Kenzo Power, and it's actually my top summer fragrance. But, I don't find it feminine at all.

    Dior Homme, Jaipur, Fleur Du Male... A*Men, I would say the real sweet ones. Kenzo Power has been described as a baby's scent by my Wife. I like them all, but the Intense version of DH is so tenacious that ends up being a little annoying.

    I own 24 Faubourg from Hermés. Its jasmine is very, very pleasing and I spread it in my sheets sometimes.

    Dior Homme.

    I don't really think it's feminine per se, but it's not very masculine. I do like it. One of my favorite relaxing at home scents. It's opening is pure "mom's purse" to me, but I dig it.

    I think Le Troisieme is just about pretty enough, but I might be deluded I don't experience it as all that feminine, but maybe it's just the reassuring name.

    Arpege is pretty feminine at first. Very creamy, maybe a little make upy?, but becomes more dark and wearable. The creaminess makes me feel well lotioned.

    Agent Provocateur is quite feminine (and features a little of the creaminess found in Arpege) but I think it's nice and wearable (only tried it once though, so haven't made my mind up yet entirely). It is possibly the most feminine feeling that I own.

    Eau de Cedre Bleue by Yves Rocher, though marketed as feminine, this sweet-woody cedar scent would easily be suitable as unisex

    I own 3 that smell feminine. I love only one of them.

    Brit for Men.

    The floral note it has is Rose, which is one of the few florals I feel is totally unisex, it smell "right" on anybody. Then the sweet and powdery notes add a feminine touch.

    Used to own and love Eau de Rochas pour femme, really nice on a man. I'm considering Midnight Poison, didn't buy it yet, but at some point i will!

    I have lots and lots of ladies frags in my collection,
    which I all wear with pride. That said, Chanel N°5
    and Chanel N°22 must be my most feminine frags.

    This is how I see it.

    A perfume is genderless, anyone can wear it. BUT some perfumes do smell feminine but is not necessarily deemed strictly for women.

    Such perfumes come to mind:
    Bois d'Iris by The Different Company
    34 Boulevard Saint Germain by Diptyque
    bas de Soie by Serge Lutens
    Black Orchid by Tom Ford

    I wear the hell out of them. I guess its better to say "soft" as opposed to feminine because the latter classification leads to misinterpreted messages. i.e if its feminine then I as a man cannot wear it.

    On the other side of the spectrum, the following perfumes smell masculine. As above, its for a lady who wants to wear something that is "not soft":

    Bois de Santal by Creed
    Encre Noire by Lalique
    Noir Epices by Frederic Malle
    Santal 33 by Le Labo

    Kenzo Power or Dior Homme.

    I would lean towards Kenzo Power though. Dior Homme is this masculine in the sense that it has some mature gourmand notes to it, and the Iris note is very nicely blended. It's not downright floral as Kenzo Power is.

    Black Orchid by Tom Ford
    Tried this last weekend. Easily wearable for a man, I thought. Also tried Angel but don't think I'd want to wear it.

    Diptyque's L'Ombre dans L'Eau. Simply awesome.
    Currently wearing: Sartorial by Penhaligon's

    Diptyque - Eau Duelle (sweet and spicy vanilla)
    Montale - Sweet Oriental Dream (sweet, creamy, nutty gourmand)

    Those are the two I'd consider most feminine in my wardrobe. Though I love them, and don't consider them feminine when I wear them, just nice, sweet, warm and tasty!!! I'm wearing Eau Duelle today, and it's just so nice to wear with a casual shirt, in a relaxed design studio on a nice, sunny day...

    I'd have to include A*Men in there too. And Prada Amber pour Homme - to me anyway, just because it reminds me of something my Grannie used to wear!!

    I am very comfortable wearing any of them, I don't think boundaries have been too far crossed for me.

    There is no aroma called 'feminine', there are only notes. Gender as an aroma is a marketing construct for non-perfume people.

    Aramis, I am so MACHO that even Aramis is feminine to me!lol

    Seriously though it would be my bottle of Dior Homme.

    Probably Hanae Mori H.M. or Paco Rabanne Black XS (though I don't consider this one feminine, others do).

    Put me down as one who believes if there were no "homme" or "femme" printed on the bottle, nobody would distinguish between male and female fragrances.

    PdN's Le Temps d'une Fête -- because it's pretty floral, and most people would classify it as feminine, though to me it is a very earthy kind of floral and thus quite unisex.
