As some of you may have read my wowowow by this:
I wonder which scents have you ever stolen from the girls?
Not talking about unisex scents but really the women. And probably you got compliments too as people don't have an idea what the gender of your smell is. ??
No so far, but I do have to admit several fragrances officially/formally recognized as strictly feminine have a quite unisex suitability about them (to my nose, Silences de Jacomo, the now discontinued Ispahan by Yves Rocher, several concentrations of Chanel No. 19, Bvlgari Jasmin Noir, with some efforts of imagination, even scarce fragrance applications of Dior Addict smelling more unisex to me than I expected).
Bal a Versailles, Balmain De Balmain, Shalimar, L'Elephant, Mitsouko, Arpege, Rochas Femme, Cabochard, Metal, Jicky, Agent Provocateur, Black Orchid, Aromatics Elixir, Jolie Madame, Habanita, Le Baiser du Dragon, Magie Noire, Cartier Must, Lancome Cuir, L'Heure Bleue, Miss Balmain, Youth Dew Amber Nude, Oxygene, L, Silences, Magnifico, Azuree, La Nuit, Kelly Calache, Bandit, Edwardian Bouquet.
I like to spray a little Angel on my wrist while at the house, but wouldn't do a full wearing of it in public. I stick to my A-men when going out.
only one guerlain decant and a couple of samples. full bottles, i doubt it
White Linen by Estee Lauder, smelled fantastic to me .
If you enjoy them you should wear them. You can always not wear them when you know you'll be in an environment that may have a problem with it or if you have a partner who prefers other types of scents.
At work I wear male scents only. But in my freetime I use mostly female ones.
Especially Poison; Chanel N°5; Ysatis; Dioressence; Calèche; Madame Rochas;
Arpège; Mitsouko; Shalimar; Fendi; Bois des Iles; N°19; Miss Dior; Opium ...
Carnal flower, Bois des Iles, Jicky extrait, Shalimar extrait, Bandit, Habanita - all of which have already been mentioned above!!!
I've been known to sneak a couple sprays of my gfs chanel coco mademoiselle and d&g light blue
There's many threads about men wearing woman's fragrance. I wear what I love, but it depends on the situation.
Just look at my wardrobe
Form is emptiness, emptiness is form.
I wear my patner's deodorant often. My mom's too, when I visit home.
I wear many of the Guerlain classic ones, and some others. Some I'll only wear at home.
I'll wear these in public, but not all of them to work:
L'Heure Bleue (vintage)
L'Heure de Nuit
Vol de Nuit
Estee Lauder Azuree
Shalimar Parfum Initial and l'Eau
Chypre de Coty
Bal a Versailles
I almost never get any comments on my fragrance other than from my wife, regardless of what I wear. This is more a matter of social context. People that get compliments all the time must move in very different circles than I do.

Stolen from the girls (?) I remember a couple of women's fragrances that have really impressed me - though i'd never wear them myself. Another is Givenchy Ysatis and the other is Lancome Climate.
"Le parfum est la musique du corps"
I don't steal. I buy.
Black Cashmere - Donna Karan
Sure, all the time. But I think of much of what I wear, in this category, as stuff that was marketed to the wrong audience anyway. I don't find Chanel Coromandel, Guerlain Spiritueuse Double Vanille, Gucci No. 3, vintage Hermes Caleche and the new Tom Ford Sahara Noir to be all that feminine anyway. Not feminine at all, in some cases, in my opinion.
None. What I like I on broads and what I like to wear are two different things.
So many, Opium for instance.

Kenzo , Eau de Fleur The
Kenzo 5.40pm in Madagascar (i've read it's unisex in some places, other's its feminine, so I'll include it for now..)
and angling to acquire:
Florabotanica Cristobal Balenciaga
Guerlain Cologne Imperial (again, confusion over the gender it's meant to be for, but damn I'd wear it!)
Sampled Mitsouko a couple of days ago and it was very interesting to say the least.. I'm wondering I'm just going to love every Gurlain scent I sample.. The Cologne Imperial was so refreshing too...
My wallet's gonna hurt on payday, that's for sure!
Chanel Sycomore mostly.
Might do Tea for two as well, but it's my girlfriends and was a gift from me - and it smells so amazing on her I really don't want to screw with that whole "feeling".
So mostly - no - I find the scents mostly too sweet or too flowery, alas not for me.
would never dare
