Love, love, love...different, fresh, sophisticated. Its unique and wonderful.
My favorite in the whole world very unique juicy yummy salty oceanic amaziness!!! In love!
When I first tried this I thought it was too strong for me but once it dried down it was like a walk on the beach and reminded me of holidays, its also very unisex and could be worn my Women and Men. My son-in-law wanted to know what the lovely smell was so I told him and he said he liked it and would wear it himself.
I was not immediately sold on this fragrance. At first spritz it comes across really strong even obnoxious,and just when I decided I hated it bam! The scent changed. This scent is so complex that it changes several times before it dries down to the actual scent according to your body chemistry. That's why this scent is so unique. When it dries downs on me I can smell the ocean, slightly over ripe pear, fig,tobacco and wood. Womanity is soft and powerful airy,complicated yet simple,sexy yet innocent all at the same time.
Great perfume!!! I love it a lot and just re purchase another bottle without hesitation when its still on sale at Harrods. Great price!!
Firstly, I want to buy a new perfume for 2013 I have browsed on sale then found Womanity on sale quite cheap in Harrods. Oh yes, would be nice to save some cash so I think to get Womanity because its such a good price for a gift set not bad at all, after searching on internet and read through so many reviews on so many sites. So, I decided to buy it online !! Yes online without smelling it too , here and there had awful reviewing about this perfume and yes that scared me off a bit but as a very high confident person as I always am so I thought I have to try this perfume and decided to order online without hesitated from Harrods and without smelling it first as well.
I waited with worrying for a couple day but thought, sort it , even though it probably will comes out as bad smells as all reviews said.
OMG! amazingly how I fall in love with Womanity for the first time when its arrived 2 days ago. This is a unique perfume and suitable for a unique people only I suppose, because the scent is just like no other , so you have to bear in mind, if you are looking for something different from others this perfume is for you. I'm glad I purchased Womanity and stock up another bottle so this can last me all year round .
Very happy with my purchased and Womanity will be my signature for all year round or maybe longer than that :D Such a uniquely scent I love xxx
I received a sample of this with a swap and was so excited to try it, as it boasted to have some of my favorite fragrance notes. The iPerfumer app has a listing containing:
Top notes: grapefruit, calone, apple, blackcurrant. Middle notes: fig, nut, rose, salicylate. Dry notes: cashmeran, dry amber, vanilla, heliotrope.
Sounded great on paper, but unfortunately these notes did not blend into a delicious melange I was hoping for. It started out very loud, with a sharp floral note that practically gave me a brain freeze upon smelling. You know what I mean, the ones that are so in your face they practically blind you. I also picked up on some aquatic notes, which had I known where in this perfume I would have never tried it in the first place as I am not a fan of marina scents. I mentioned to my husband that I was sampling a new perfume and before I could even ask if he liked it or not he immediately responded with "nope." Lol! It seemed to take forever for the perfume to dry down, but once it did it became a very sweet, vanilla-floral but not in a good way. I love sweet fragrances and I do like florals but this was not cohesive. The floral note was too sharp for the vanilla to smooth over, leaving a mismatched and uneasy feeling, like Grandma floral meets Justin Bieber. I did not get any fruity or fig notes that many reviewers have mentioned smelling. I also did not pick up on any "bodily smells" that others have described in great detail, lol! Pure and simple, this perfume did not work for me but I knew going in that this would be a big possibility, considering Thierry Mugler scents' history of variable ratings. His perfumes either work for you or they don't. Apparently I fall in the latter category. Please don't let this review dissuade you from trying out this perfume as you may be one the lucky ones that this works for and good luck!
This is my first foray into Theirry Mugler. I've read all sorts of exciting things about his frangrances, so how could I resist?!
I'd been saving this one up for a special occasion; an occasion when I would be relaxed and receptive to all his rumoured strangeness. I am a floral lover, this is outside my particular box. So today, Christmas Day, I dove in.
Lovely, weird pink bottle; art deco, strong looking. Not my style, nor does it really reflect the juice inside, but hey, art is art and people like what they like. Open mind on this one.
On first spritz, yum! Spicey, sweet, edible, FIG. "Wow", thought I..."this could be a problem. I have recieved a full size of Stella today and this is blowing it away."
So I waited it out and now at the end of the day, I can say that Stella is safe in her top position.
The sweet spicy figiness fell away quickly leaving a sharp brightness that eventually left me with a whopping headache. I do get the rumoured caviar note but it isn't terribly rancid, just sharp. I live by the ocean, so real marine smells are comforting rather than off putting to me, but this version of saltiness just doesn't work on my skin. It is that salty sharpness that is the deal breaker and the deciding factor for me.
So for all the lovely figgy opening, the drydown on this is intolerable.
Update: day 3 and this is turning into a scrubber. I still love the opening but I know the sharpness and headache that is coming. The drydown feels almost green rather than salty. Sigh. This experiment will come to an end soon, one way or another.
Update: day 5, final day. My husband likes the smell as I waft on by but agrees that it is horrid up close. And as the one wearing it, I am up close to it all day. This is complex, has a story and I really, really want to love it. Fig, caviar, woody, salty...and not for me.
This fragrance smells good at first spray, but then it takes a masculine peppery turn that I just don't like.
K OMG EWWW!
First time I hated it...something I never smelled before but thought I would try it again just in case and the opening notes are just so gross...can't even describe it...hated it even more then the first time. I had to scrub it off.
Womanity is really something new. And controversial of course.
I have to admit I admire Thierry Mugler's fragrances. You may like them or not but you have to admit they have guts.
Angel was the first gourmand. Alien is a full strength jasmine bomb with some amber and wood.
And womanity. A not very complicated fragrance.
Starts with a jaw dropping realistic fig note. If you haven't smelt or tasted actual figs you get an excellent interpretation I assure you. And fig tree leaves as well. Very original. If womanity would have developed to something more friendly than caviar I would so have bought it. But nope, sadly, I don't enjoy the salty note. Silage and longevity are excellent..
I'm a bit pissed. I appreciate the originality and the quality but I like only the top notes. Now I have to Try the latest version ''Womanity Eau Pour Elles EDT'' with hope for less salt.
