Your feminine image is about more than just the way you look. It’s also about the way you speak, move, think, act, and smell. Yes, SMELL!
Scent is strongly linked to emotions – and the right perfume can make you feel irresistibly feminine.
How do you choose the perfect feminizing perfume? Here are the different types of perfume scents and the impressions they create:
Floral perfumes are based on the scent of one flower (like lavender, rose, gardenia, or geranium) or a combination of several flowers.
Floral perfumes are great for crossdressers and transgender women since they are the most feminine of fragrances. Wear a floral perfume when you want to express your soft, romantic side.
Examples of floral perfumes include: Daisy by Marc Jacobs, Estée Lauder White Linen, Dior J’Adore, Stella by Stella McCartney, Kenzo Flower by Kenzo, and L‘Air du Temps by Nina Ricci.
Fruity perfumes contain citrus scents, such as lemon, grapefruit, strawberry, peach, kiwi, etc.
Fruity perfumes are fresh and youthful, making them a great choice for when you want to feel confident and energetic.
Examples of fruity perfumes include: L.A.M.B. by Gwen Stefani, Cartier Eau de Cartier, Sun Flowers by Elizabeth Arden, Beautiful Sheer by Estée Lauder, DKNY by Donna Karan, and Emporio White by Giorgio Armani.
Fresh perfumes (also called green scents) are light and airy. They are based on scents of grass, green leaves and the ocean.
Fresh perfumes are energetic and rejuvenating. They are great to wear when you are out “en femme” since they boost your mood and put other people at ease.
Examples of fresh perfumes include: J.Lo Glow by Jennifer Lopez, Fifth Avenue by Elizabeth Arden, Diorissimo, Dune by Christian Dior, Bond No. 9, and Safari by Ralph Lauren.
Oriental perfumes are rich and dramatic and smell of spices, musk, vanilla and heavy flowers.
Oriental perfumes have a sexy and sophisticated air. Just be sure to choose a light scent since oriental perfumes can lean toward the masculine side.
Examples of oriental perfumes include: Dior Addict, Lancome Attraction, Opium by Yves Saint Laurent, Samsara by Guerlain, Lalique Perfume by Lalique, and Sun Moon & Stars by Karl Lagerfeld.
Woody perfumes are heavy and dramatic and are incorporate scents like sandalwood, patchouli, and cedar.
Woody perfumes are sensual and exotic, but they are the most masculine of all fragrances. Therefore, you may want to avoid this particular fragrance type.
Examples of woody perfumes include: Passion by Elizabeth Taylor, Escada by Escada, Lovely by Sarah Jessica Parker, Cashmere Mist by Donna Karan, Habanita by Molinard, and Givenchy Organza.
What’s YOUR favorite perfume?
Keep these guidelines in mind – but remember, the most important criteria for choosing a perfume is how pretty and feminine it makes YOU feel!

VS Love Spell – Untamed. Bought it by mistake for my wife. She didn’t like it on her, but loved it on me. So that’s what I’ve been wearing this winter.
I like to wear something that’s maybe not as well known? I love Heavenly by Victoria’s Secret.
I try to wear perfume every day. My two favorites are White Diamonds by Elizabeth Taylor and Red Door by Elizabeth Arden.
White Diamonds is now only available in eau de toilette. So, I wear this on my clothes to prevent body heat from evaporating the scent away too quickly. Initially I did not like Red Door as it is a rather strong scent for an eau de toilette. However, I eventually discovered that this scent blends wonderfully with my body’s chemistry and my body heat evaporates just enough of the scent to balance everything out. (Tip: If you have to go stealth, try wearing a little musk cologne in addition to your perfume. The trick is placement. Add a little perfume to your wrists to give yourself a delightful moment of femininity. And add a small amount of musk to the front of your shirt about the third button down from the collar. Also, on the outside hem of your shirt sleeves or on the elbow. This masks the scent of your perfume to everyone else yet allows you to enjoy something pretty and pleasing.)
I love Lavender it is what I love to ware and I love to bath in Lavender bubble bath a strong sent of Lavender is my Favorite :).

My favourite perfume is opium. It is a sweet feminine fragrance. There is one thing though, although similar, fragrances will tend to smell a little different on others
