I was almost afraid to try this haha. After the less than stellar reviews, and the fact that I could not make Angel and Alien work for me, I didn't expect much. But I loved it!! My husband loves it too, and I own so many fragrances he is just "meh" over. You definitely have to hand it to Mugler, people always feel so strongly about his fragrances one way or another. Give this one a try for yourself!

This is the kind of perfume that either blossoms on your skin, or just smells terrible. For me...it blossoms. I have never loved a perfume more! I sampled this at Macy's and all day I had a creamy sillage of Fig and Vanilla trailing me, with a slight tinge of mysterious smoky woods. People everywhere stopped me to tell me I smelled awesome.
I always wanted to love Angel and Alien because there were certain qualities about them that I liked, but they always had these horrible menthol ICK notes. I feel that Womanity has captures those qualities minus the ICK. It's a perfume that makes a statement without yelling.
I just woke up this morning, after getting home late from a cocktail party, and I still smell good after buying a bottle and spraying it on yesterday at 7 p.m.

I have tried all of Thierry Mugler's perfumes and I have to say that Womanity is the most unique. When I first sprayed it on, I thought that it smelled like cigarettes. I was on my way out for New Years Eve and thought I would spray a little on while at Sephora. I thought, OMG!! I am going to have to go home and shower all over again because I smell like a chain smoker ( I do not smoke by the way). Once I drove home (five minutes later), the smoky scent vanished into something deep, mysterious and wonderful !!!So wonderful, that I asked for a bottle for V-Day.

When I first tested this fragrance, well it must have conflicted with some other scent I was wearing whether it was lotion, bath oil, cooking grease, whatever because I did not find it a pleasing smell at all!
BUT...I went to give it another try and brought home a generous sample to discover, I love this perfume! It is so different than my normal selection. I am not good at describing notes in perfumes but this one has a minty sort of smell in there some place that I find myself wanting to smell more of. I am not usually a fan of mint, but this is not quite a mint if that makes any sense. This lasted on my body for hours and I wanted to spray more when the scent had faded (in the middle of the night!). I actually laughed at myself for wanting to spray myself again in the middle of the night, but that is how much I liked the fragrance this time.
I am going to wait for the sale coming out in March so I can get a combo perfume/lotion package, but I can hardly wait until then. The bottle is an art piece all by itself and will compliment any vanity table, plus it is refillable! I do so love that. This is a real keeper for me!
UpDate: I decided on the largest bottle! I waited for the sale and yes, I got an added gift, not what I was hoping for but a nice roller ball filled with this fragrance. It is great for my purse, although I have a refillable purse sprayer. I was hoping for the free lotion with it, but I kind of thought that may have been too much to hope for. Never the less, finally I have the big bottle and no need for the little samples. I am loving this fragrance even more and I am an older lady. Do not let some of the reviews, opinions about this fragrance being for a younger crowd keep you from trying this perfume! Most of us older ladies love this stuff and it smells great on us! Maybe the younger girls wearing this scent is what is turning some off. Perhaps one has to have more mature hormones to really rock this scent!

What first starts out as a salty, oceanic scent drifts into a woody, fruity dry down that lingers for hours. The combination of fig fruit, fig wood and caviar is exhilarating and refreshing. With so many fruit/sweet fragrances on the market in the last few years (all too cloying in my opinion) Womanity adds a complexity to this category that is sorely needed. This fragrance seems to be quite polarizing but I think this just shows how innovative it is.

I haven't tried Thierry Mugler scents before, from the reviews I thought this would be different and interesting, but that seems to apply to Alien and Angel, not Womanity. When I spritzed this is smelled odd, but lots of perfumes smell odd at first and then dry down into something beautiful. I've been wearing this a few hours, and it just smells like powder, almost like Baby Soft, with maybe a bit of citrus kick. It's not offensive or foul, just not exciting. I wouldn't buy it for myself, I prefer more robust and spicy scents, but for somebody who likes sweet and soft, this isn't a bad choice.
I gave it another star, up to 3. It's more interesting than I initially thought. I still think it smells a bit odd, perhaps it is that "gourmand foodie" tone that comes out strongly, but it is pretty and pleasant. And I got it for 30 bucks at Marshalls, so I've been wearing it more and it's grown on me.

Womanity isn't Angel....period. OK, so now that that's overwith....what is it? Well, I usually say "on my skin" but in the case of Womanity I need to say "in my nose" as this fragrance is a nose scent rather than a skin scent to me. What I mean by that is it literally sticks in my nose (not sillage per se). This is one of the reasons that the longevity is incredible to me (don't breathe it in too deep or you might start tasting it - yuk). My nose first gets a sharp tingle (the salt effect I suppose) and then a juicy burst that is also someone creamy (the fig fruit). I really like the" juiciness" of Womanity and that's why I give it a thumbs up. I'm not a fan of fruity scents, but I am a fan of "juicy scents" (I like Alien too for that initial juicy blast). I'm not going to try and list other notes as that's not my forte...just want to mention the sharp note followed by juiciness followed (long after) by a nice woody drydown - that's my review and impression. I like it for the melange of sensations, and to me - it's not common or like anything out there - but...again...it's not Angel :-)

This does not smell good on me. Upon first spray, it smells like mossy damp woodland, and then a overly strong scent of fig just pops up out of nowhere. After 20mins or so, the dry-down is a little sweeter but it still smells like figs and caviar. On my mum it smells quite nice though, quite sweet and minus the icky figgy caviar.

I got sample of this from Sephora. Knowing it was thierry Mugler, I knew it would be very different from the typical fragrance. I love Angel and Alien,so I gave it a go. Like other people, I am put off by this scent. I left it on all day to get the changing notes and well, it did not get any better. I had it on when I picked my son up from school and the first thing he said when he got in the Car was "What's that horrible stink?". Well, needless to say, I chucked hte rest of the sample in the trash. The only I can possibly describe the scent is a cross between a big sweaty guy and a hippie wearing patchouli to cover up the fact he hasn't bathed in a week.

I received a sample vial of this perfume with my latest Sephora order, and I hate it! It smells like wood, tobacco, and a bit like vinegar on my skin. This fragrance is just not for me, even though I normally like woodsy scents.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Other, Tan Hair: Brunette Eyes: Black
I hate how this smells. I received a sample in the mail today and oh my god, it's horrible. I actually can't stop picking up the vial and smelling it because I can't believe how gnarly it is- it's a new surprise every time. The packaging is really cool, even for just the sample, but it seems like some of that effort would have been better spent on creating a less nauseating scent. That said, if you want to smell like you spent the past week getting wasted on appletinis in the Philadelphia airport, you really can't afford to miss this.

Edit: I had to edit this after purchasing - please reference Pennypencil's review for the spot on review - this is really an exercise in experiencing the sillage and resisting the tendency to want to smell on your skin. The sillage makes for a musky, salty warm amazing cloud around you that I can't get enough of. Love the pink juice, and the bottle while not my favorite, makes an interesting counterpoint in my collection.

I am no full-time reviewer, and it seems I only feel the need to review a fragrance, when I genuinely fall for it. Such is the case with this one.
To me, Womanity is by all means the best of Thierry Muglerís creations. For clarity, I need to add Iíve never been a great fan of TM fragrances. While I do like Alien (if only it was more wearable!), I absolutely detest Angel. Womanity, however, is a different storyÖ
From the contentious ratings made by previous reviewers, it follows that love or hate depends in this case entirely on body chemistry. Well, my body adores Womanity, makes it bloom on me, and smell gorgeous. Also, I couldnít be happier about the controversy around this scent, as I hate to spend $$$ just to smell like half of the town. (On the other hand, I hope Womanity will not get discontinued in a year or two, on account of poor sales...)
As for the fragrance itself, itís a well-balanced blend of pretty innovative ingredients. It features ripe figs and caviar over citrusy notes in the head, and milky-woodsy tones in the base. Lacking the skill to take a scent down to molecules, I can only describe the overall impression it evokes. Right after spraying, I get a fairly distinctive bergamot which, after 5-10 minutes, yields to a luscious sweet and salty cocktail, with a predominant note of caviar. This stays on for hours, but tends to develop a softer and warmer feel, as the fragrance settles down. Interestingly, what I also get after an hour or so, is a vague aroma of smoke, which is neither a cigarette nor a burning incense (will it be the caviar?). Although I canít really figure out or name it, let me just say that this peculiar smoky something adds on a very intriguing and sexy characteristic (noted by myself and stated by others, too).
All in all, I find Womanity an extremely feminine scent. Itís multidimensional. Itís surprising. It can be anything from attractive to repulsive (which is evident from other reviews). Also, it has the capacity to encompass and harmonize the apparently contrasting elements, and remain a consistent whole in it.
On the subject of longevity, there is no bone to pick with Mr Mugler. Womanity's staying power is definitely above the average. Applied sparingly in the morning (two sprits on the neck at the hair line, and another two on both wrists), it will last through the day. (Although I may stop smelling it after 6-8 hours, I know that others still do, as they donít stop complementing:)) Also, this fragrance has a sillage. It announces itself to the audience, rather than staying close to the skin. So, if you like to smell inconspicuous, this is not the stuff for you. Itís a fragrance with a defined personality. Wearing it is like saying openly what you want and reaching for it.
Finally, I love the fact Womanity comes in a whole range of products: Eau de Parfum in three sizes (if only a 3.4 was available instead of 2.7 oz!), Shower Gel, Body Lotion, Body Cream, and Deo... Thank you, Thierry!

There are many fragrances on the market and not a lot of differentiation among them. Too often, a scent is just pleasant or "perfumey" in a non-descript way. I spied this scent by the unique bottle which is almost sculpture-like in design. The label lists the three main notes as fig, caviar, and fig wood. I sampled a little on my wrist and was intrigued. It had a complexity to it that most fragrances lack. The fig and the wood scents blend very nicely together. I like that it has a personality but I do not like the name of it. Womanity does not roll right off of the tongue.

I hated this fragrance at first. The fig in the top notes gives an initial shock of tartness. It settles in to the most beautiful floral scent. Because of its good quality it takes longer for each layer to present itself. You're not going to smell the bottom notes within an hour of spraying. This fragrance blossoms throughout the day. I manage a fragrance and cosmetic area within a department store so I've had access to a myriad of scents and this is hands down my favorite. It's the first fragrance to use the essence from the fig fruit rather than just the fig leaf.

Womanity is the pink saffire in Thierry Muglers collection. It may not be good for this one and be superb on a french lady or. I also like to spray a little of Mac eau de parfum in the blue shade to blend. Because the womanity is very womanly basic.

Dreadful. Absolutely horrid. I can't remember the last time a scent was this unwearable and offensive. A quick test spray wraps your whole body and senses in a hostage-grip headlock, and one is forced to gather oxygen through breathing sideways. Not Womanity- more like Inhumanity.

I didnt like it. i was forced to try it by my friend who is a SA. it was terrible because he was so excited to show me this perfume highlighting the packaging and unique scent. I sprayed it on my wrist and sniffed a few times, it was awful, my only thought was cigarettes stale smoke or somthing else odd, my friends agreed with the cigarette smell, there isnt much point analysing this further its just so bad.
we quickly left without buying anything.

Oh god, I really do hate this. I'm a huge fan of angel and alien so I expect great stuff from thierry mugler. Now, I was put off by this fragrance before I even smelled it, just by seeing the add. First off, the name. Womanity, really? Angel is such a pretty, innocent name. Alien is weird, but really awesome too. But womanity? It sounds like a joke, or some cheap drugstore perfume, or a tampon brand. Second, I hate the bottle. It's cheap and creepy looking. Again, I love the angel bottle, and the alien bottle-like the name- is weird but in a fantastic way. This is just bad. Bald head, chains...reminds me more of medieval torture than feminity.(I refuse to use the term "womanity") And that creepy top is placed on the most boring plain glass vial of pink liquid. Medieval torture and pink-what a lovely combination. And now moving on to the most horrid part, the juice. This is not even a matter of chemistry here. I smelled this and the experience was basically the olfactory equivalent of being put in a medieval torture chamber (maybe thats what the cap is suggesting?) It smelled like a mix of salt, rotting fruit, cough syrup, alcochol, fish, dirt, and sickeningly sweet, overdone fig. *shudders* This is not marine, I like marine, but this is not marine. It's just briny fish eggs. And chemicals. And a compost pile. Has anyone seen that episode of Seinfeld where they bottle seawater and try to pass it as perfume? That was one of the first things that came into my head when I smelled this. I presume mugler was trying to create a new olfactory group with this. Well that he did. It's called landfill. Apparently some people like this. To those who like it: although I will never understand your love for this, please try not to wear this if you are planning to make contact with...anyone. I'm telling you this for your own protection. The way some scents will make men run to you, this will make them flee. Well, on the bright side, maybe it's a good thing I hate this. Because if I liked it I'd have to try to get past the tremendously tacky name and bottle and I'd have to be without any male contact for the rest of my life. My boyfriend's face when he smelled this-priceless, and not in a good way.

OMG I totally love it! This is the most special scent for a women I have ever had!!!
I just sniffed at the bottle when I saw it for the first time and I liked it. The second time I tested it on my skin and I was a bit overwhelmed by the strong and extremely spicy smell and just thought, that this wasn't at all what I had expected. But after a few minutes I couldn't stop sniffing. It's so special and the smell gets more warm and sweet, but still fresh and a lil salty the longer you wear it. Plus it lasts sooo long!
As I said it's special and this is probably why it's either a love-it or hate-it perfume. But I would def. recommend giving it a chance and smell it in reality before you don't buy it only because of bad reviews.
