    Default Which female fragrances have you worn / tried ?

    Hey guys,

    I'm just curious to know which female fragrances you have tried ? Maybe there are some you wear regularly, some that you think work fine on a man etc.

    I know a lot of the niche perfumers market their fragrances as unisex - I'm thinking more of fragrances that are marketed as female - Chanel No 5 etc.

    Thanks in advance.

    Specifically marketed/classified/described as female fragrances by the respective fragrance houses:

    Worn - None
    Purposely sought out to try - None

    Smelled many of my wife's and daughters' fragrances.

    I've tried/worn quite a few that are classified as "feminine" here on BN directory. I like the first three, but would only purchase the top two if I have the money. The rest, I really don't care about them:

    Coromandel by Chanel
    Spiritueuse Double Vanille by Guerlain
    Un Bois Vanille by Serge Lutens
    Sycomore by Chanel
    Shalimar by Guerlain
    Beyond Love by By Kilian

    HDDP is on the money with the Chanel Exclusifs - it's staggering that they've been marketed as feminine, when I find some of them to be more masculine than they are unisex. Eau Suave by Parfum d'Empire is another womens fragrance I have no problems wearing, as is Edwardian Bouquet by Floris.

    For some context, I'm certainly not one that subscribes to the idea that 'anybody can wear anything'; the vast majority of womens fragrances I'd never feel comfortable wearing, but there are a rare few that I feel are at least unisex.

    In this forum, you'll find guys who have tried all sorts of female fragrances and worn them well. I've worn Black Orchid, but that one has caught on with enough men that it's sometimes sold among men's scents these days.

    I've tried several but I've only owned:

    Mitsouko - went in the garbage
    Chanel 19 - now used as air deodorant
    Coromandel - went in garbage Chocolate Hell !
    Amouage Jubilation 25 (female) Loving it


    * If Estee Lauder Private Collection was of better quality I would purchase it as well.

    I have stopped using all but the Amouage. The Mitsouko was also fine but compared to the Amouage J25(similar) it was cat piss so I stayed with the J25.

    The others are unisex "ok" but I became uncomfortable about them for being too unisex. I think my face turned bright red while wearing coromandel. Smelling like white chocolate was not for me. Great for a high schooler though.

    I also like leather scents labeled as unisex but I tend to like a cologne made specifically for men.

    I have tried many sprays at the counter. Most are not for me even if I like them. But I own the following and wear rhem all occasionally.

    Black Orchid. Projection bomb and works well on a confidant man. Maybe better than on a woman.
    Sycomore. How is this considered a womans fragrance?
    Womanity. Weird. Got it for halloween when I dressed as a zombie. Got a ton of complements.
    Dior Addict (vintage). Vanilla. Good stuff.
    Elixir des Merveilles. Orange chocolate gourmond. In some ways reminds me of TdH.
    Acqua di Gioia. Aqutic fruit and sugar with a hint of cedar in the base. Very sweet. A guy can't wear this but I do as a guilty pleasure.
    My Favorites

    1. Amouage Epic man
    2. Dior Leather Oud
    3. Perris Monte Carlo Oud Imperial Black
    4. Le Labo Patchouli 24
    5. Amouage Opus VII
    6. Byredo Bullion
    7. Norma Kamali Incense

    I own and wear Portrait of a Lady regularly. Despite the name, I don't consider it "feminine" leaning at all. Others I own and enjoy wearing are vintage Bal à Versailles Parfum, Ma Liberte and vintage 1000.

    As far as which ones I have tried... Too many to mention.

    Mitsouko by Guerlain, probably the best female scent on male skin.

    Default Re: Which female fragrances have you worn / tried ?

    This is a question that has been repeated many times on other threads. Once again; fragrance has no gender, if you like it wear it. When you go out, no-one can see the bottle. Marketing decides the sex to target. Fashions in fragrance change; what is "feminine" in one decade can become "masculine" in another.

    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.

    As to your original question, I just have to laugh. Too many to count.

    As to this one, yes, the version in the rectangular bottle is much more pleasant on the nose than the one marketed to men. Light citrus/grapefruit.

    I think the only two I've tried that are listed as female fragrances are Beyond Love and Kere.

    Beyond Love was a tuberose bomb with some coconut. Not my kind of thing

    Kere is praline, caramel, apples and cinnamon. I really liked it, and people liked it on me.

    Tried ? - couldn't even begin to recollect. I pay scant regard to gender marketing and prefer to approach each house with an open mind, and the intention of sampling everything.

    Vol de Nuit.
    Hypnotic Poison.
    Iris 39.
    Hiris.
    Feminite du Bois.
    Epic Woman.
    Shalimar.
    Bois des Iles.
    Black Orchid.
    Sycomore.
    Coromandel.
    Portrait of a Lady.
    Folavril.

    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.

    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.

    Default Re: Which female fragrances have you worn / tried ?

    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.
