For nearly 2 weeks, I’d been using a new fragrance. And during those 2 weeks, I’ve actually had 2 people ask me what fragrance I was wearing – one was male, the other was female. Its quite a strange thing to happen to me, so I had to share.
My answer is “Womanity” by Thierry Mugler.
When I say “Thierry Mugler”, hands up everyone who chorused “Angel!” Yes Angel has to be Thierry Mugler’s most popular fragrance. It didn’t work for me though and it sent my friend into sneezing fits 🙁 But I loved the beautiful star shaped bottle.
I don’t know how you’d feel about the Womanity bottle. I felt it was rather “rock chick” – metal rings, sculpture and chain in a baby pink bottle. Strong yet playful. In your face, yet subtle.
Thou art woman.
What is special about Womanity?
The scent is. If you have the chance, stop by a perfume counter and ask to take a sniff of Womanity. You won’t miss the bottle – it is distinctive and eye catching.
I like the fresh citrusy top note that brings to mind grapefruit, and I love the scent (and taste) of grapefruits. The citrus scent quickly mellows down however to one that is markedly more complex – sweet yet salty. Yep! You read right.
Salty. Not sweaty type of salty but a distinctive tang. This is because the main scent is that of figs and caviar.
I’ll be honest. I don’t quite know what caviar smells like, but I do know that it tastes a little salty, and like the sea. Imagine eating figs with the sea breeze in your face and hair on a sunlit beach.
It comes with a pouch that you can store your bottle in, if you are so minded to, because this bottle is refillable. Officially that is. I’m not sure if the refilling service is available here in Malaysia but I can safely say it will not run out that quickly.
I personally find this scent a wonderfully complex one, and I will be honest, not one for everyone. If you like scents that are floral or sweet, you might find your brow creasing when you sniff at this one.
I personally feel that its a matured scent. One for a woman, not a girl. Its a scent that you would get after having seen a bit of the world, not when you are just starting out life with wide eyed naivete.
Sniff it and see.
Here’s the official video for Womanity. The underlying theme is that women learn from each other so is this woman you?
Deep? I thought so too.
Take a sniff of Womanity. It’s pretty “deep” too 🙂
