Pour une femme is quite the powerhouse, strong and sexy but sparkling at the same time. I agree with Oviatt. Lady Caron is a lovely white floral if I remember well and it is a genre where I struggle to find scents I like (sometimes classified as chypre floral but I don't remember that). I would happily wear both.

I haven't smelled these scents in the past few years since Caron discontinued some scents and updated its packaging. I think Pour une femme may have kept its original bottle (Lady Caron unfortunately not).

Yes, Pour Une Femme, a gorgeous warm amber oriental. The bottle is quite interesting. The tube inside does not go all the way to the bottom of the bottle. I thought I had a defective one. LOL Because of the shape you need to keep it in it's box.

Lady Caron, I bought quite cheaply but never really wore so gave away. White florals do not really work for me, but as it was so cheap I bought anyway.

I would describe Lady Caron as beautiful and starts out really peachy with a pronounced tuberose.the other fruit play supporting role and just blend in.there is something about a spring breeze that brings out the best in this's never cloying or has slightly tropical opening.dry down is slightly powdery and woody ...a balanced creamy sandalwood.

Pour Un Femme is a spicy sweet reminds me of times when women wore gold jewerly,red lipstick and fancy shoes.the first burst of citrus and spice was unsettling but i love the way it settled into an intoxicating blend of warmth and freshness with the twist of incense that has entranced me.beautifully complex and has a strong presence without being overbearing - softer than other orientals i know - a strong feminine presence that is unafraid of being classed with the alpha males.

Best Regards.

I realize this is rather an old thread, but I'm compelled to pipe up and add that Pour Une Femme is very much a rose-centered perfume ...kinda surprised nobody's mentioned that. :unsure: I'd be shocked to find myself alone in that opinion, the rose is just so lush and beautiful...and conspicuous.
