This bottle of Thierry Mugler’s ‘Womanity’ dropped through my door a couple of weeks ago, and I’ve been trying to work out what I think of it ever since.
As regular readers will know, describing scents is not my strong point, but this one is a particularly unusual: it contains notes of citrus, woods, fig and caviar, which means that it somehow manages to be super-citrusy and fresh, and very musky, all at the same time.
My own preference is for musky/powdery scents, so I find the blast of citrus, which is the first thing to reach your nose, a little overpowering. Leave it a few seconds, however, and I’m left with a really interesting, musky scent, which I really like. The citrus notes are still detectable, even once it’s had a chance to absorb for a while, but it becomes much less “fresh”, for want of a better word.
I probably wouldn’t have picked this up myself – the name alone is would normally be enough to put me off – but having had the opportunity to try it, I’d say it’s definitely one of the more interesting scents I’ve tried this year, and it’s gone into my regular rotation. I Also LOVE the bottle : definitely different!
