D&G Feminine Dolce&Gabbana for women Pictures

D&G Feminine is fresh, modern scent with musky drydown. The top notes are mandarin, mimose and a fresh water lily note. The heart follows with floral notes of lily, heliotrope, visteria, jasmine and ylang-ylang. The powdery base unifies sandalwood, vanilla, musk and cashmere. The perfume was created by Nathalie Lorson and Max Gavarry in 1999.

D&G Feminine Fragrance Reviews

Another strong classic.

First notes are sharp citrus and wood. This gives way to a soapy, musky, soft but not too powdery floral. This is less powdery than Rive Gauche, but is in the same class of powerful vintage classical scents. As with all power houses, less is more...such depth to these oldies. Very clean, fresh sharpness to this one.

I am only now getting around to testing D&G Feminine, despite having been sent a generous-sized decant by a generous perfumista quite some time ago. Fortunately, the juice is still in good shape, so now I understand why so many people are complaining about the discontinuation of the perfume.

At the same time, other reviewers revile the scent! I find it clean and musky and floral and a bit soapy. Some people have observed the compatibility of Feminine with Nivea cream, and I do not disagree. In fact, this composition reminds me a bit of one of the Bvlgari Mon Jasmin perfumes (hmmm... was it the original or one of the flankers--I've lost track, there are so many!).

Upon application, my first impression was that this could be the signature scent of a cougar--that's right: une femme d'un certain âge (comme moi!). It smells sophisticated and sexy--think Catherine Deneuve. This is a type of scent which is less common in recent launches, which seem to be much sweeter on average. Feminine dates from 1999, before the tsunami of abstract fruity-florals, and its discontinuation is an example of how fashions cycle also in perfume.

Eventually, people are going to be sick of all of the cloying sweet gourmand stuff, and this sort of perfume will come back into vogue. Until then, cherish what remains of your old bottles of these turn-of-the-century perfumes!

I adore this perfume and I'm so upset it has now been discontinued. I looked on Amazon but it is so expensive. Up to £250. Does anyone know any perfume that comes close to the smell of this?

Feminine is a soft and warm whisper around you, next person have to stand close to you or hug you to get a wonderful wiff of Feminine, and I lovet it. I love those shy, close, whispering scents thats encirceling you all day. Sadly i sneeze alot when I wear this one.

Feminine är en mjuk och varm viskning runt dig, nästa person får stå nära eller krama dig för att uppfatta Feminine och det älskar jag. Jag älskar dessa lite blyga, tysta nära dofter som ändå omringar dig hela dagen. Trist nog så nyser jag enormt av Feminine.

Juicy pear, that comes and goes.

Baby oil.

Vanilla here and there, especially in the base.

Musk.

Lily.

AMAZING.

Clean but musky, sweet but not.

HINT: poor man's Un Lys. Their drydowns are almost identical, on me.

I was a bit previous posting my last post about jovans white musk being like feminine. It does smell very similar to start with, but changes and fades very quickly. However all is not lost. You can still get this in the USA!! My cousin, who lives in Albany New York. Is sending me a bottle! 100ml for $50 (about £35!!) I also located a bottle on amazon for £220 for 100 ml. 3 guesses which one I'm going for!! Lol

I have been wearing Feminine since it came out and was devastated when it was discontinued. I don't want to be ripped off in eBay or Amazon as they are charging up words of £180 for 100 ml of dolce and gabbana Feminine, so Reading here that Jovan White Musk was similar, I bought a bottle online, it cost less than £10 and although not exactly like the original, it is so near to it, you would never know. I am so glad I came across this site with the information and white musk, I urge anyone out there who loves feminine and misses it as much as I do to buy Jovan White Musk! You will not be disappointed.

I think this perfume goes for anyone, it is very innofensive and soft. But I do realize that some sweet perfumes become too sickly sweet and bothersome as your nose gets more sophisticated :P

I was finally able to get my hands on this. Soooo excited I love the way it's smells on me. It's a sexy,musky, powdery scent. I'm impartial though this scent reminds me of some good times in my life.

This was a favorite of mine. I was sad to see it discontinued and would love to find a replacement. it was the kind of scent you just wanted to wear. It was just like your favorite shirt or pair of jeans that made you feel just right. A soft, beautiful floral that wasn't overly sweet,with a slightly musky/ cashmere dry down that just screamed feminine....hence the name. My all time fav D&G fragrance.

This was my signature fragrance for many years. I am disappointed it has been discontinued. It had a dry out of a beautiful and soft florals.
Many people would ask me about the fragrance I was wearing .
It was subtle and not overpowering .

I wore this through my last year of secondary school. A guy working at a perfume store I often visited took a liking to me and gave me a brand new tester marked 50ml bottle of this for free :) Being (at the time) a fruity-floral or citrus fan I was unsure of this fragrance but it ended up being my go-to signature fragrance, and I felt naked without it. I have to thank this fragrance cos it helped me step out of my very small comfort zone of typical teen-girlish fragrances and be a little more courageous. The strongest note on my skin undoubtedly was lillies, followed with wood, then citrus, it was refreshing with a demure and elegant edge. It is a very clean smell and I would describe it as sharp, it doesn't mellow a lot in it's dry down- it remains rich lillies just with an ever so slight fluffiness. It is the kind of fragrance that stays with you, and your clothes, and on your bed sheets; it clings and keeps up with you, always ready to pick you up. This perfume I guarantee if not found pleasant at first, continues to grow on the user by each day.

I don't think it is about people's ages... I think it is about feeling comfortable wearing a perfume and loving it. We all should be able to wear whatever we want as long as we are not invading other people's space.
If you like it, wear it. I usually wear my perfumes for my self and my hubby (sometimes just for myself :)). If we both like it then the job is done. I think anybody can wear this wonderful scent.

Very sweet, but not sickeningly so. The epitome of baby powder. I always maintain if you love a fragrance that much, to disregard whether it is too old or young, but I really did feel at 43, too old to wear it!

My twinsister had it ten years ago, at that time I hated it. Untill two months ago, when I was looking for a new signature scent. I remembered the fresh and sexy smell of Feminine and can't get it out of my head now! Does someone still owns the bottle and wants to sell it to me? I would be greatfull!

My signature fragrance, my favorite perfume of all time. I'm heartbroken to learn it's discontinued and may stock up on some over-priced bottles while I still can.

This, to me, is what a woman should smell like. Clean, but sexy. Soft and powdery but modern and chic. Floral but not sweet and sickening, musky but not manly. It smells like white musk and baby powder and lilies but all of them so gently. The sillage is polite and sexy, the longevity is great, the whole thing is SO SO SO feminine. I adore mimosa and cyclamen and lily of the valley and this is the only perfume that combines them with musk.

Sometimes I'll catch a whiff of this on an article of my clothing and I'll just inhale and savor it. After over a decade of wearing it! I love it so.

Hello lailafeder1. No this perfume is discontinued. I think the male version is discontinued also. I just happen to still have some left. I just get so annoyed at the bottle that I long 'til I've used it all up. The leaking of the fluid when spraying and the cap is loose and can't be fastened like it should. I don't know what they did when they produced these bottles, but they did something wrong. Even if it still existed and I like the scent, I wouldn't buy another one due to the bottle.

I like the smell alot, flowery and mild in its scent, not overpowering at all. I can not wear it when I'm in school, 'cause my teacher is allergic to some of the flowers in this scent. But I don't like that teacher, so maybe I shall wear it the next time I see him, just for fun. There's only one drawback with this fine perfume: the bottle. The spray "thingy" loosens so easily so I have to attach it, plus the perfume leaks from the spray "thingy" when it gets pushed down. Does anyone else have this problem? I had the same problem with the bottle of D&G Masculine, which I also had before(I would say it's more of a unisex than masculine fragrance).

I received this as a gift some years ago. It was a huge bottle. Once a year I spray it to see if my tatses have changed, I want to like it. And it's such a shame to have it just sitting in my closet. But, nope, still smells of cheap baby powder and elderly people on me. I'm sure it's gorgeous on others. Anyone wanting it, message me, and I'll send you the bottle.

I used to own this one. Feminine isn't bad at all, but with my chemistry it smells like just a white floral. I'm not a big fan of white florals.

I find I like this one better when layered on top of my Light Blue.

This is a very long lasting scent with great sillage. If you like this one you would probably like Jessica McClintock, Versace Vanitas or other white florals.

I wouldn't purchase this again as me and white florals never hit it off. I still appreciate this on others.

Feminine is a sweeter powdery scent of TBS white musk oil. I love Feminine but there is thi harshness in the opening causing my nose allergies.

A very pretty scent though i dont reach out for often but definately may fav lily scent. For ref i have tried SL's Un Lys and Cartier Basier Voile but because Feminine reminds me of TBS white musk (HG), is why i prefer this to other lily based florals.

Age: 24
Skin: normal-oily. Medium brown.
Preferences: Fruity, vanilla, watery, sweet, citrus (Will update)
Perfume nose: amateur

best season spring and autumn
day/night day
the age of the woman who wears it 24-45
the persona of the woman who wears it: intriguing, kind, mature, sophisticated modest, warm err feminine =p

Quite a big gap for age but what i love about this is femininity can be at any age and this proves it! This woman speaks with her eyes, speaks only when she has to. Not an overly glamourous woman but her chosen style is soft, floaty feminine and warm. A woman who can look sexy riding on a bike from the 40's with a basket in the front.

I bought this as a blind buy, when i first opened it i was like >=[ then i sprayed it on me then i was like =o IMO it is beautiful it smells classic. it is a musk ideal for younger women as the jasmine is present in the top notes and then it soften downs into a powdery musk. i can admit throughout trying it i was like is it? is it? phew! is it? is it? phew! because on a certain person this could be a disaster! this could possibly smell like toilet freshener. This is the type of perfume that chooses you! It is the powder along with the musk and light hint of florals that make this come together so beautifully. its quiet and loud at the same time.

There was a lady I saw on a train. Her scent was soft music to me. She smelled like creamy heliotrope was growing from her hair. Her lips sang sweet vanilla. I asked her what was this scent her skin was breathing,

"Feminine" she said to me.

I did not forget this perfume. Alas,I did not know where Dolce & Gabbana stood on being cruelty free. Nor could I afford them.

I found what was right for me...

A kindred spirit selling this vegan imitation,and I had enough money in my pockets to afford it. It smells just like the real Gabbana.....

In my mind the dear and gentle lady on the train is next to me,and drinking her tea,smiling warmly. She is sharing a piece of her heart,and her great taste with the world. How lucky we all were. I truly mean it.

As a somewhat reluctant sucker for musk, due to the scratchy olfactive soundtrack of my misspent youth screeching in the background with over applied White Musk Oil from The Body Shop, I find myself falling for D&G Feminine EDT despite its similarity to the aforementioned culprit!

How can this be? I've spent most of my adult life running away from anything (human or otherwise) remotely resembling that TBS trademark signature.

Could it be, adorned in a light spritz of D&G Feminine, I feel young and carefree again? Has enough water finally flowed under the bridge for me to have matured enough to smile fondly at my pubescent self?

I dunno! What I do know though is I am thoroughly enjoying smelling this good. Feminine is pretty and girly and clean.

No heavy syrupy residue weighing you down in this "white musk", only pristine petals carried on a buoyant breeze.

My grandmother owned a bottle of this. (For younger people thinking about buying this I must say that she likes to wear pretty young fragrances, just finished a bottle of Burberry Brit Sheer.)
It smelled very nice on her. She liked it a lot and would have bought again but they don't sell it in here anymore.

The scent is feminine and floral but not heavy and won't offend anyone. Good for everyday use.

i still own a 100ml of this from the early millenium... today i decided to try it again after all those years it was hidden in my storage.

it has a very intriguing smell, unusual for nowdays and somehow addictive... hmmm... the intro is quite fresh and unisex. but then the precious flowers are developping. the aroma of a sweet and fragile heliotrope, which i love so much in fragrances is coming up to my nose accompagned by an intense smell of wisteria and ylang-ylang. truly nice and feminine on this stage. then the white petals of lily and orangeblossom are fading in nicely powdery and i can feel also the musk introducing very seductively. the base is woody warm and still powdery, sweetened up with a hint of vanilla.

all in all a very clean and subtle sexy scent, not offending or overhelming, with a nice sillage floating arround you for a good while, lasting power is very good on me! perfect for officewear.

happy to still own it as it is hard to find and discontinued.

The only fault that I find with this featherweight, adorable, lovely floral is that it fleets from my skin very fast. It smells to me like a diluted Nivea cream in a classic blue tin, and I`ve been looking for a perfume to match the scent of Nivea for years. It is not a scent that will get you noticed or will make you feel seductive...I would not even call it a comfort scent.It is more like a second skin, clean, pampered and healthy.To me Feminine is a keeper, though I don`t wear it very often. I keep wishing it will hold on me a bit longer everytime I use it!

I find this loud and offensive. I kept on sniffing it to see if it was going to get any better. After about 6 hours it did wear down to a more likeable amber smell but, not worth putting up with 6 hours of shrill for 1/2 an hour of smooth amber. I know now that my body doesn't like white floral, nor woodsy/musk, so it didnt' have much chance with me.

It is a truly feminine perfume, and very sexy too. I bought it a few years ago, and it seemed to be the perfect happy, floral scent for an intense spring. But after a few weeks it ended up on the bottom shelf, because it was too strong for me. Maybe it didn't suit my personality, it rather suited the person I wanted to be... but I wasn't. :) For those who like strong scents, it is the perfect date perfume, romantic and sexy.

I Had a sample of this for almost a decade in my drawer.I think with me goes like :i try a sample, like it,hide it.Then use it time to time and when it becomes rare ,i decide to find a bottle of it.I think happens to me with D&G mostly.It was for By like this.
Anyway, this perfume is clean, fresh and musky sweet.At first mimosa and water-lily give their freshness.Florals begin to grow after a while.Mostly jasmine,lily and cyclamen ,i do not get any ylang-ylang.
The dry-down is fabulous!!!So musky sweet:they are cashmere woods ,vanilla and sandalwood.The lasting power is very good.I can use it for day or night,summer or winter.Fantastic!!!!!
P.S>It has the purity and softeness of Sicily,the sweetness of The One and the smell of jasmine as in Light Blue.

Clean, soft, and unusual. I have to comment on a review though.. lol If it's cheap and smells like old ladies, why did you give it to your 9 year old? That doesn't make sense. I think it's pretty, and much better than the average (and popular) fruity floral perfumes being sold. You can smell the mimosa and heliotrope in it. Since it's not an average scent that's why I bought it. For an EDT the lasting power is really good. I get compliments, and that's a good sign. It goes well with my chemistry, but like any perfume it should be tested before buying it. I don't get any powder on my skin at all... because I can't stand powdery scents. I cannot wear Chanel No 5 for that reason. You're probably smelling the mimosa and heliotrope... which can remind people of powder sometimes. On me I just get the true scent of the flowers. These reviews shouldn't keep you away or make you buy a perfume though, any perfume should be tested before buying it. ;)

Very odd smelling perfume to me. White flowers with an antiseptic/medicine mixture. The first 15 mins after spraying it on the smell is sickening. About an hour later the medicine smell fades and I smell mostly flowers....although strange smelling flowers....it lasts for hours and hours which is the only nice thing I can say about it. I bought this without testing it first and am really kicking myself about now. Total let down.

Feminine is charismatic and unique with an alluring edge. It is a fine blend of creamy-floral-light-musky scent, pretty, sweet, poised and very sexy.

It opens with heady mimosa: some oddly aged and damp kind of mimosa, which could be quite overwhelming for the first 15 minuts. Then it smoothes down to a creamy bouquet of white flowers accorded with just the right portion of musk and vanilla that lasts. In the end of day it smells almost angelic, really amazing!

The transformation of this scent is like Audrey Hepburn in "My Fair lady": not all that aggreeable at first, just give it a little time to develope, the loveliness in it will gracefully emerge, like a fair lady.

When I tried this fragrance for the first time I was highly impressed, so excited with my find that I somehow managed to spray my face with the tester, (at least my face smelt nice).

D&G Feminine is a soft and clean type of scent which manages to combine a certain sweetness, creating a unique and interesting fragrance. I believe the opening is what people call a white musk.

I don't sense the mandarin orange in this fragrance at all, I get mostly an array of floral notes, which are beautifully blended I might add. D&G Feminine is actually the first 'clean' fragrance that I've been ecstatic over.

The drydown is the one thing that stops me from buying this fragrance. Although still a lovely scent, the musk becomes very dominant and artificial smelling, reminding me of my grandmother's house, (possibly the smell of mothballs). The sweetness completely disappears, and in my opinion, the scent loses its personality.

The lasting power is quite astounding for an EDT, lasting most of the day.

For wearers that don't mind the drydown, D&G Feminine would make an excellent 'go-to fragrance', even a great signature scent.

Smelt this today for the first time after many years. I like its sticky sweetness because its so well balanced by the musk and powdery quality. As its name dictates its definately very feminine but has some weight to it as do all the D & G perfumes. Puts me in a relaxed, confident mood. Again I fear this will be discontinued quite soon:(

There is something wrong with this scent. Doesn't smell chemical to me, which should be a good thing.

But the attempt of blending in breezy notes with cashmere wood and other oriental notes like ylang-ylan, lily and heliotrope has just failed, in my opinion. It's like when you mix a beautiful oriental scent with a nice delicate floral-aquatic: you obtain something really heady and you also cut the wings of both scents.

A perfume should always please your senses so much that you long for another sniff, but D&G Feminine makes me turn my head away from it. One of my friends wears it and I try not to let her notice that I avoid her close presence, don't want to make her feel embarassed. And it's all because of D&G Feminine...

I think it's one of the most well-created, most beautiful fragrances ever. It's flowery and a bit sweet and the dry-don is soft and powdery, very feminine, really. It makes me feel confident.

WOW! I really, really, really love this fragrance, clean, fresh, soft, powdery... for me it's amazing. The drydown is beautiful and deffinetely feminine without being too girly like or sweet.
Good staying power. Great for every season. Classy and beautiful.
For me is the best Dolce&Gabbana scent and it's quite underated.
Truly one of my favourites!

I'm very surprised that some people consider this a very strong and sickening fragrance...But I guess tastes differ.
To me it smells soapy and clean, nice and mild. Feminine and J Lo Glow have much in common.
