    I have worn Mitsouko, Shalimar, L'Heure Bleu, Apres L'Ondee, Bal a Versailles, Perfumer's Workshop Tearose, Bandit, Dzing, Jicky, Chanel 19. If I find any others that I like I will wear them. I do not care about marketing, only about the smell.
    You may wish to try Bandit or Balmain Jolie Madame. Men can enjoy wearing these. My other half wears my Jicky and Antaeus.

    The MF distinction is a bit fuzzy to me. For example, some of my favorite Lutens are designated as female, but I'm not certain why; and most of what I wear today isn't sexed at all. With that said, fragrances that I've worn that are specifically pour madame: Poison, Coco Chanel, Lush's Lust, and Youth Dew Amber Nude.

    I'm hearing good things about Womanity, although I've despised everything from Mugler that I've smelled so far.

    Try it, it doesn't smell like anything they've done so far, IMO.

    I just can't get into female fragrances. I have experimented with a few Chanels which supposedly are quite masculine but I don't like it and don't feel comfortable. Wish that I would for I believe that women's fragrances tend to be made of higher quality than mens.

    Please try Sycomore. It's a double for Encre Noir by Lalique.

    I wear these and a few others:

    Sycomore
    Onda Extrait
    Mitsouko (vintage, any concentration)

    Chanel Cuir de Russie (vintage pre-Exclusifs, any concentration)

    Theorema
    Parfum de Peau (vintage edt)
    Opium (vintage, any concentration)
    Bandit (vintage edt)

    Most people I know believe that all of them are masculine. :-)

    Black orchid, own. Tried recently Burberry brit (women) really nice. I think it is under-rated, need to try again and might buy if I still like it.

    I own Bulgari Black & Chanel Cuir De Russie.

    Have tried lots, including Chanel No.5 and Coco (and I'm a double-hard, scary monster).

    I own:
    Balmain de Balmain
    Guerlain Herba Fresca
    Marc Jacobs Ivy Splash
    O de Lancome
    Jean Nate
    Estee Lauder Youth Dew

    I just ordered a bottle of Bal a Versailles edc and can't wait to try it.
    Also, I'm planning on buying a bottles of Piguet Bandit and Guerlain Jicky, which I have tried and absolutely love.

    I have tried many feminine fragrances and also enjoyed:
    Estee Lauder Private Collection
    Estee Lauder Cinnabar
    Chanel Cuir de Russie (edt)
    Clinique Aromatics Elixir
    Caron Nuit de Noel (edt)
    Guerlain L'Heure Bleue (edp)
    Guerlain Shalimar (edp)
    Guerlain Mandarine Basilic
    Mugler Alien
    Tom Ford Black Orchid
    Marc Jacobs Orange Splash
    Hermes Eau des Merveilles

    Basically gender means absolutely nothing to me when I'm looking for fragrances, the only time anyone has ever commented on me smelling feminine was one time while wearing Aromatics Elixir a friend of mine said I smelled like a grandma, which I took as a compliment. I'm still surprised no one has said anything when I wear Youth Dew though.

    I wear Jicky EdP from time to time (it gets marketed nowadays towards women), as well as Mitsouko EdP. I plan to buy Shalimar EdP someday.

    Too many to count!

    I am surprised to see Sycomore referred to here as a "female" fragrance, I always felt it was "masculine" (unisex, really, like so many).

    I have bottles of Shalimar, Tabac Blond, Mitsouko, Chanel Cuir de Russie, Boudoir, Nuit Noire, Cabochard, Bandit, Habanita, Bois d'Armenie and others that I believe were marketed as "female". I have samples or decants of many more. The ones of these I wear most often are Chanel Cuir de Russie and Bandit.

    I dislike most fragrances marketed towards men; like men's clothing, the options are disappointingly few and the profiles too similar. I also don't care much for a lot of white florals or purely floral scents in general. So I live mostly in the "unisex" part of the fragrance spectrum.
