Wow, thanks for the list. I'd never thought of being intentionally feminine in the olfactory sense before! Great ideas!

For fresh breath, do as the Victorian ladies used to do, and use a silver spoon as a tongue scraper. (Bad breath often comes from bacteria that accumulates on the tongue) For an alternative to toothpaste, try brushing with Dr. Bronner's liquid castile soap: lavender or rose. You only need a few drops on the toothbrush. It's non-toxic (saponified coconut and olive oils) and a frugal alternative to toothpaste! (you just have to get over the soapy feel). They also have peppermint. :)
