It's strange, when you adore a perfume by the same perfumier and you don't like another one they've created. I felt that way instantly about Womanity, but having said that I also initially thought so about Angel, which launched 21 year's ago!
Angel's now my favourite perfume but it wasn't until 2009 before I dared to spray it on myself again and I found I really liked the scent, it's strong and a little goes a long way.
Based on my past experience with Angel, I decided to give Womanity a try again and I like it. I wouldn't say it replaces Angel as my go-to scent, it's definitely a scent I enjoy wearing. I'm considering buying a bigger bottle but I probably won't until September when I can shop Duty Free because I'm going to Sydney for #IMATS.

Womanity's notes are: Fig, Fig Wood, Fig Leaf, Caviar and Woody notes.
I read a few quick review's about this perfume to see how other's described the scent and someone said the Caviar makes it smell fishy! I definitely don't think that's the case, I can't smell anything fishy about it. Another said it smell's like a pair of pant's being worn for a day, but not a dirty smell. I don't smell that either and I'm not going to smell my pant's after wearing them for a day! I guess it smell's different to everyone and it's not a scent everyone will love. I definitely feel it could be mistaken for a masculine scent because of the woody notes (one of my favourite candle scent's is Mahogany Teakwood, which a lot of people say it smell's like an Abercrombie and Fitch store, but having never been to A & F I can't confirm that, but it's a masculine scent).
I've tried to like Womanity a few times since it launched in 2010 but I gave up until recently because the scent didn't float my boat. Clearly my taste has changed in 4 year's! I think it could be a unisex scent based on the fig and woodsy notes but I personally don't know a guy who'd wear it so I'll leave it to your imagination.
Please let me know what you and/or your fella think's of this perfume, do you think it could be a unisex scent? Leave a comment below if you own, or have tried this perfume and what you like or don't like about it. I'm interested to hear other's thought's on it.
