18 years after Angel and 5 years after extraordinary Alien, Thierry Mugler is saluting femininity. The new edition will thrill all fans of his creations. It is named Womanity and it arrives in stores in mid-June 2010. Thierry Mugler with Womanity plans to launch (for the third time) a bestseller perfume and which will attract the public for years.

Womanity is a word created to connect femininity, humanity and city. An overture to this edition began in March 2010 when Mugler launched Womanity.com web site with an idea that every woman cooperates in its creation and finishing touch. With an aim to create contents for the website, one story is finished by several women, each of them writing on her page. Contest asks women to give creative ideas for a particular project or cause. The winner will work with Mugler to finish the website.

Fragrance WOMANITY was created as a part of this phenomenon, in a pink bottle. Connections between women are presented as chains and ring on top of the bottle which is decorated with metal frieze with symbolic design. Design of the top part of the bottle and beautiful frieze figures can be interpreted as Gothic or Art Deco style. Mugler's idea was however that the frieze encapsulated and depicted women of all generations.

Composition of Womanity was created by Mane, as a powerful contrast of elements. By using the new molecular process of extraction, Mane manages to extract natural aromas of fig for sweet accords. Savory notes originate from caviar and the structure in ensured by fig wood aromas. Pierre Aulas, olfactive director of Clarins Fragrance Group, says that it is a true challenge to work on Mugler's idea of combining savoury and sweet notes. Womanity was created by Mane and Alexis Dadier.

I blind bought a cheap 1 oz of Womanity, but I'm not a huge Mugler fan. I love Alien Essence Absolue and Angel Sucree- probably because I'm a gourmand lover, and detest heavy Patchouli.

I was tempted by Womanity for the sweet-salty vibe, and Olympea by Paco Rabanne is my latest obsession-- I love it so much!

I just sprayed Womanity on a Kleenex.... I'm wearing Angel Sucree on my shirt/skin/chest today.
At first I get a huge blast of citrus. Which confuses me since the notes are basically woods, fig, and caviar? I guess it's the fig, which I admit I have not smelled before! LOL! Aside from my Grandma always giving me fig newtons as a kid. The first blast and the nozzle/bottle is bright sunny orange to my nose.

I am glad I don't get any fishy lady parts.... that idea grosses me out, haha. I def get hippie sweaty armpits from Angel EDP/EDT, so that doesn't work on me. Angel does smell AMAZING on my older co-worker, and I have an Angel Imposter from Walgreens that smells amazing-- exactly like the way Angel wears on this older lady.

I don't hate Womanity, right now on paper, I'm just like/okay with it. Of course, only my skin and chemistry will tell! ;) Right now it's just an odd salty fruit light scent... dare I say it's plain and inoffensive? Just one spray from a new bottle. It's not generic of course, it's Mugler.

I will update! So far, it's woody, juicy/fruity, a bit salty and powdery.
Yep, it's def beachy. A brighter, fresher, fruitier salt beach than Olympea. And def not the creamy, dreamy, girlie sweet Olympea beach. This is sharp and fruity-fresh-aquatic, but I don't hate it! I will have fun with my 1 oz unless the skin/actual test is horrible. ;)

I had no idea how to define "savory" or even what it would mean when applied to perfume..... but I get it now. And I still can't explain it. ;)

This is a unique perfume that I sampled from a mini purchased on ebay. I appreciate the salty/sweet combination immediately on opening. On me the silage and longevity are just average as I have drier skin. Since I dabbed this on I did not find it overpowering but would recommend spraying lightly.

I adore everything about this fragrance - the zany portmanteau name, the refillable bottle, the frightening metallic topper, the ring, the chain, the pink-that-turns-tan juice.

I have 3 bottles of this stuff and the Pour Elles flanker. I have a small bottle of the body milk and the 6.7oz bottle of the body lotion. I cannot get enough of this creation!

The first 30 minutes is where all the fun of Womanity happens. I find the top notes to be like Mystique from the X-Men - a shapeshifter! At times, the opening is an explosion of apple pie filling with crisp freshness of green apples and the spice of the cinnamon. Other times, I get the "expensive hair conditioner" vibe that others talk about. And lastly, sometimes I get an almond-y and coconut vibe. No matter what I detect on the opening, the apple pie filling/shampoo/almond-coconut is slathered on a shrilling metal accord with a varnish/lacquer nuance that I thoroughly enjoy. I think this varnish nuance is what turns off a lot of people. It's literally like nail polish.

After the explosive introduction, Womanity becomes linear and gets very green and offers an intense yet unusual oceanic sweetness while maintaining the metal accord. If anything, the juice should have been dyed an ashy gray as I feel that's the best way to describe the majority of Womanity's scent.

The projection is unapologetically nuclear for the first 30 minutes so beware if you plan to "freshen up" mid-day. After that, it is a sultry skin scent while still having an impressive light scent trail with its metallic sweetness.

I am a man and I confidently wear Womanity.

NOTE: the body milk and body lotion are extremely sweet fig cream and devoid of the dominant metallic accord that the spray fragrance contains.

These reviews are FASCINATING. Such a wide range of opinion and the people who hate it seem to LOVE hating it, which is the hallmark of art.
The house of Mugler isn't known for generic, safe fragrance for basics, so that should have been your first tipoff right there.
I am a fragrance ho. I have all kinds. Super expensive, like Bond No.9 and Neroli Portofino and Maison Margiela, and super cheap, like Fantasy and Mariah Carey and VS. I don't care if it's cheap or posh if I like the way it smells and I like most of the categories of perfume, with the exception of the huge aldehydes like No.5.
Angel, Alien and Womanity are all famous for requiring a certain chemistry to pull them off. Angel is infamous for its armpit note on the wrong person. Womanity is infamous for its 'dirty lady parts' note, supposedly.

Personally I love all three of the major Mugler pieces, because they all smell lovely on me. I get no pit stank from Angel. She is beautiful for me. Alien? Garners compliments from strangers almost every wearing. She is beautiful for me. I get no hoo-ha stank from Womanity, though it IS intimate enough I only wear her at home. She is beautiful too.

I think every person here who said that caviar is fishy has never encountered actual caviar and they're just assuming a fish product must have fishy smell. Caviar smells nothing like the 'fishy' stink they're thinking of. It doesn't taste fishy either unless perhaps you ate it spoiled. It is possible that the bottle you smelled was spoiled, which CAN drastically stankify frags. Or you just have REALLY unfortunate body chemistry, in which case I'm sorry cause you miss out on nice things.

I hate the first ten minutes of Womanity. It is straight metal, like chewing on a zipper or a coin, or licking a battery, if you ever did that. Angry and cold!
But after that it gets salty and almost meaty, but sweet at the same time. It's a savory gourmand, which is uncommon in America anyway and confuses us.
It's fine! You know, we are the only ones who think we have to smell like laundry soap and fluffy towels and flowers all the time or else we are dirty.
You can be clean and not smell like soap! You'll live! No one is secretly judging you! This fragrance recreates the scent of a clean person's skin who has been in the sea and the sun.
The REAL sea, not the aquatic notes we associate with oceanic perfumes and candles. Real, living salt water, because seawater contains many tiny little living things.
This is an extremely European/Asian scent to me. It is not the American or Canadian or British shoreline. It is a Greek grotto, a Middle Eastern shore where small pools of warm water and seaweed sing to a fig tree growing close by. It's an Agean shore somewhere, salt water and fresh seaweed kissing rocks...maybe the wet rocks are that metallic note. There is a beautiful woman...not a timid girl, a woman who has curves and doesn't know she's supposed to be ashamed of her body...walking around in the water swishing her fingertips in the waves while the water melts her gown onto her shape. The sun is warming the salt onto her skin and the sea is so happy to see a Venus again if only for an hour.

So IF this fragrance suggests lady parts, it is clean, natural lady parts, which are not fish-stanky unless you have an infection, in which case get thee to a clinic. But I will allow that this does contain a suggestion of a clean woman, and again, only in America do we have SUCH a hangup about being what we were made. It is not dirty. It drives the man in my life NUTS like it's loaded with pheromones. Hey, bonus for both of us!
I don't wear it out and about often because I don't want to get my goddess on at the grocery store. But I do now and then. No one has ever sidled away from me or made a face when they thought I wasn't looking, and I did look hard.
As I said, it's because this works for my skin and just smells like the sea. You of course should test it but make sure it's a reasonably new bottle unexposed to air.
The only drawback for me is the price for longevity. It is not a sillage beast for me. It stays VERY close to me (fine) and in three hours is gone (not fine). So it's expensive for the amount of times I have to refill it. Sad face. But I would totally buy again, and do.
Bravo, Monsieur Mugler! I applaud the taking of chances. I like the basic frags, the Marc Jacobs Daisies and the Pink Sugars, but there is a place for strange, thoughtful unicorns too.

(PS that is why those of you though who like this shouldn't be so secretive when someone asks you about it because you want it all for you. You realize they have to sell a certain amount to justify keeping it in the market, right? Tell anybody who wants her who she is! Unless you plan on buying enough to keep Thierry in business personally, we need more people to buy it so that it doesn't go away. That's just basic economics.)

Reminiscent of clean sweat... Of the salty, briny skin indicative of a day spent transitioning from the beach to the water, and back again. Don't let the strange notes scare you off. The caviar notes give it a beachy down-to-earth natural vibe, and the fig here is not the heavy, thick kind.. but earthy, calming, and full bodied. Savory, but still sweet.

I had no idea what to expect going in, but was immediately delighted. I've since sent samples to several of my friends. This is unique, different, sure. But not bad at all!

This beauty is not for me. I really wanted to like it but I just can't. I have a 1oz bottle ready for swap. It is completely full!

Side note: IMO it smells similar to the drydown of D&G Intenso for men anyone?

I really wanted to like this, but there's too much going on in it. It's a confusing scent. It also reminds me of an expensive shampoo. It wants to be gourmand, no wait, it's aquatic, no, no it's super floral. It's cold, it's warm. It's too sweet, it's not sweet enough. This fragrances wears me out! Fig, metal and some type of floral.

I popped into Bath and Body Works today to check out the summer sale, and I tried a body mist called Seaside Pink Jasmine, which I thought smelled quite a bit like Womanity, or maybe Womanity Eau Pour Elles. Has anybody else tried that one?

I decided to try this despite my aversion to other TM fragrances, and I do like a good salty note from time to time, Balmain Ambre Gris being a favorite.

Salty fruit. And that's it. I don't smell rotting fish and it does not remind me of lady parts. None of the alleged woods made an appearance. The first 15 minutes are rife with fig and caviar, and to me they don't blend that well; just an ocean wave crushing against a wall of fig trees, both competing to be top dog. In the end, the ocean wins out because it dries down to just a vague salty scent with no trace left of fig. The fragrance started out strong and powerful then retreated shyly into the shadows on my skin.

Still, it's not unpleasant and I do intend to finish out my samples. But there are other salty fragrances that are blended better and smell better than this.

Womanity is an absolute masterpiece, the way it combines all these notes to create something I find stimulating to the nose. I really enjoy just inhaling this scent and do not understand all the comments about "fishy" smell. Absolute absurdity! I give a nod to the perfumer here, the whole concept of the bottle with that jaw dropping cap, the color of the perfume. What more can I say? WOW!

I blind bought this one day and thankfully it smells wonderful on me. I love the saltiness I get from it, and combined with the fig it's like nothing I've ever smelt before. My husband doesn't often have much contribution when it comes to fragrance but he always comments favourably on this one... I find it smells very sexual and I feel excitement whenever I wear it. Really pleased with this one.

If caviar was not one of the given notes people would not say this is fishy. I do not eat fishy seafood. Therefore, i would not like this fragrance if it was remotely fishy. Fishy smells is what turns me off of most seafood and a high quality caviar does not at all smell fishy.

The nature of a fig is pungent in essence and that is it. There is fig fruit, fig tree & leaf in here. Either some just don't like this or they just can't pull it off. Just like i can't pull off Angel and certain other fragrances out there.

The metallic feel reminds me of how violet leaf can be in fragrances but this has more of a metallic punch that i find bold, rustic and modern in a very beautiful way. It really is a try before you buy. Not everyone's skin will smell like fish from this or any perfume. Mine certainly does not.

Is this a joke ? A 'fume called Womanity that smells like rotting fish? What the fig? Anyhoo. This is a like/hate for me. It keeps morphing, so I keep it under wraps for full sleeve days, so I can sniff when I want without putting anyone off, who walks past me. Not a full bottle buy for me, oh no. When it's done, it's done.

Fragrance Review For Womanity Thierry Mugler

Notes: Fig Fig Tree Fig Leaves Caviar

At the first spritz of Womanity the fragrance can't possibly top itself. It's unlike any opening to a scent I've ever come across. Some have called it gross, like rotting fish washed up on the shore. It's definitely an aquatic salty ocean scent, but not in a good way. It does smell of that caviar fishy fragrance, very salty and a tad sweet. The fragrance is built around fig. Figs for days. Nothing but fig. The fig is spicy, herbal, green, fresh and aromatic. It's also unisex. None of these notes are either masculine or feminine, which I find ridiculous in the first place since smells and scents have no gender. Since when is the scent of strawberry or peach for women? Fruit has no vag. Since when is wood leather and tobacco a masculine scent. They have no ding dong. This is a fragrance with notes that can be found in both men and women's fragrances. I have smelled caviar and fig in both men's colognes and women's perfumes. The pink juice in the artistic but bizarre bottle is a nice touch. I love the opening and wish the fragrance had remained spicy and aromatic. But it does turn sweeter and softer into a pure little fig scent later on. This doesn't have the top middle and base note structure so it has no real complexity or progression. It's a fig fragrance. I don't like the name Womanity because it gives it a gender when it should be advertised as a unisex fragrance. This is caviar and fig and salt, spicy, a weird gourmand beach scent. And I love it.

This perfume confuses me, for a very simple reason: on me it smells like hazelnut. Nothing else, just straight-up hazelnut. I tried it in two different department stores, two Sephoras, a duty-free shop, I bought a sample; I wore it in cold and in hot weather, in the sun and in the rain, in winter, spring, summer and autumn; every time, the only thing I got was hazelnut. At first I assumed it was my nose playing tricks on me and I asked for input from the people around me: they, too, smelled nothing but hazelnut. I was very disappointed, as I love fig, and I was fascinated by the idea of combining it with caviar, but it simply does not work on me. Oh, well. One can't argue with body chemistry.

I first sniffed this from the bottle and was like "OH MY GOD WHAT IS THIS!" it was horrible, vomit inducing. all I got from it was salt, metal and fig. the next few times in the department store they sell it in I tried it and each time I was repelled. then the other day I was killing time and out of boredom put a hefty squirt on my wrist and on the way home kept sniffing it and grimacing. after a while the saltiness and metallic notes died off and I was left with the woody figginess and I started to like it! by the time I got home I had decided this was a perfume I have to have for those times when I crave it (like alien which I also dident like initialy) but being the skinflint I am had to buy a copy of it in oil form from amazon, which is actually surprisingly good and without the OTT opening. now I would go as far to say if they had this on offer like they sometimes do (about £10 for a 10ml) I might buy it not only for the juice but the cool bottle
UPDATE.. I went into fenwicks to try other perfumes but ended up putting 3 sprays of this on my neck.. then went shopping. in primark a sales assistant gave me a really filthy look as I walked past, in aldi a woman choked as I walked past and the checkout boy looked distressed! It was so overpowering I wanted to scrub it off but at the same time didn't, it was really weird. I asked my husband an hour later if I smell horrible but he said "not particularly, just strange". I kept it on and felt conflicted with it all day. I think Il try womanity liquor de parfum instead see if that works for me
EDIT. the more I tried it on and used a sample on myself the more I could smell woody fig and sweetness. so Ive got myself a full bottle because I cant live without it!

Womanity in one word.... "Savory". I get the salty ocean vibe but for myself it's a little too realistic.The caviar note is definitely present and smoothed out by the sweetness of the fig.A creamy dry finish that reminds me of the ocean salts after they have dried on my skin. Once again I can appreciate TM fragrances but I would not want to wear this.Smells more like something I would want to eat, not spray on myself.Beautiful bottle.

Review below , beautifully said.
I owned this in the past and started to dislike it for some reason it seemed like a cool scent , metallic of some sort ,,, now I bought pour Elles and fell in love with the concept again and the smell. So tomorrow I will get the EDP as it is much stronger as the EDT.

Back to the scent , it is indeed like ocean water , a fresh breath of air by the sea , salty wind blowing around your face , fig trees near by ,,,,
I believe it smells quite unique and therefore quite niche. It certainly isn't your everyday mainstream. It gets as many dislikes as Angel , the polorized wonderful little devil.
It certainly doesn't smell of fish , no fragrance would obviously so not sure why people say that either. I guess because of the caviar note. But caviar doesn't smell fishy nor tastes fishy. It's salty and has not much if any smell ...
Anyways. Great unique scent. Fresh like the ocean wind !
It's quite airy, and I find there isn't a base to it. Maybe vanilla would have rounded it off a little and made it fuller. But again it's likely intented to stay airy !

People who speak of fish must be either too influenced by what they Think caviar smells like, or have very different noses to mine...I won't judge, but I get zero, nil, nada of it - there's no fish in here!

I get a feeling this is what Olympea is inspired by, only Olympea was sweeter and "girlier" and overall more easily approachable...

It's fresh, juicy, sparkly fig with a citrusy tang, and something like ocean water - salty, but in no way fishy - and then the gorgeous, lovely, beautiful fig tree and leafs.

It's very strong, but not dense - silage is good, but it never feels like being wrapped in a blanket, more like little sparks of scent, like magical soap-bubbles popping around me.

Clean, fresh, salty, sweet, and woody - pretty much what the box says - but surprisingly beautiful. I didn't expect less from Mugler - this may be a new summer favourite for me!

Okaaaay.........

So I'm a little disappointed with Womanity. When I received my sample, I figured I was gonna either love it or loathe it, and if it wasn't to be the former, then there's still quite a lot of fun to be had with the latter - sitting with my nose glued to my wrist trying to figure out what the hell the creator was trying to do here, what kind of people would actually want to wear it, etc, etc. As it happens, I'm kind of ambivalent. Yes, you heard me right. I am ambivalent about a Mugler perfume.

First up, for those of you who are unsure about trying it because of reports of a fishy aroma - there are NO fish in Womanity! Seriously. I grew up in St.Ives in Cornwall, a small harbour town, and as kids we used to go down to the beach to watch the fishing boats come in. I'm fairly familiar with the pong of our piscean pals, and it is not to be found here. Salt, yes - scales, no.

It opens with a surprisingly fruity top note - it doesn't feel like fig to me; more watermelon or something vaguely citrusy. Almost like your typical fruity-floral opening. This then becomes greener and sharper on my skin, while the salt note canters alongside, tempering the sweetness and giving it some depth. I get the comparisons to Reveal; I wouldn't say they are overly similar as Reveal is more floral on me, but they do share characteristics. I don't find it to change much on me, either, though it becomes a little warmer and the sweetness reappears toads the drydown - must be the fig.

I think I was most shocked by the fact that I didn't find it that shocking - I actually find it tamer, and possibly more wearable than Angel & Alien - but I love those two, and I merely like Womanity. It sort of reminds me of the crazy success of Dan Brown's books, with Angel being The DeVinci Code, Alien being Angels and Demons and Womanity being that one about the computers whose name I can never remember and of which I only read about three pages. I don't mean that it's dull or 'generic' (I hate that word!) - come on, it's Thierry Mugler. Of course it's weird, that's a given! I just don't find it that wonderful, either..... A like, not a love.

O my God No. What? LOL I sprayed this on myself as a test to see if I would like it. A girl friend of mine wears it on occasion. I never bothered to notice she wore it except when I was very close to her seated next to her in the car. She smelled mostly of what I thought was ivy or Artemisia, something leafy, green and a bit aromatic. It's fig. Pure fig. I borrowed it from her and sprayed it on my wrist. This is powerful stuff. It's got caviar and it smells like you've been eating at Sizzler. I also don't find that the name honors women in general. It's kinda lame to call it Womanity. Just call it HUMANITY. And even so humans do not smell like caviar. This is weird, strange and powerful. But then again it's Mugler the same designer label that gave us Alien and Angel which are strong and pretty awful stuff. I can't wear this.

I treated myself to a new bottle as the cold weather begins here in Oz, I had forgotten what a silage MONSTER this gorgeous perfume is.

I am a serial over sprayer and after two sprays I remembered what a powerhouse this is.
I got a bit on my jacket and after a bar-b-q with fire drum and smoke the scent is still hanging in there.

Fantastic Salty fig tree but beware it has a two spay limit unless you want your house to smell of perfume.

The only reason why so many people dislike this perfume is because they know there is the caviar note. If they were unaware of this fact they would just like it, because it's a nice scent. It has nothing to do with the smell of the seafood.

...don't think of the caviar, don't think of the caviar...

A ripe fig scent, with fresh, salty and indefinably perfume-y elements. It reminds me just a little of the 1990s fad for shells, pebbles and "blue" scents in bathrooms, only much prettier.

As a seafood hater, it took me ages to try this. Yet, I really like it. I find it helps to get over my aversion to the idea of this to think of the salty-oceanic note as shells picked up from the beach, or the faint tang of seaweed on the air. Beautiful beachy scents with far more in common with this fragrance.

Oh...and I wanted to add two things to that last review:

1.) Is it just me, or is there something that this shares in common with Alien? They smell nothing alike at first to me, but in the dry down something emerges and I'm frequently going, "Wait? Why am I smelling Alien?"

2.) The ring on the bottle looks good on my hand, too! The 10 ml. mini has one without a chain, so it's very easy to just slip on for funky, gothic/ art deco accessory. :-)

I just received a new mini of this one from someone on Ebay. I don't quite know what to think. I love how unique it is. I have to admit, however, that it made my stomach feel a little weird when I first sprayed it. On the other hand, it really has a nice natural, very earthy smell to me. I completely see the connection between the marketing campaign (check out the 3 min. short on youtube) and the fragrance. It smells a bit older and younger at the same time. It also smells outdoorsy to me- It's like a day at the beach with girlfriends when I don't care about my hair looking great or the fact that I have some sand in interesting places. ;-) It's like being a kid again and playing in the dirt. I think it's more about being female than it is about being "sexy" in a commercial sense. Really, there is depth and quality to this fragrance in craftsmanship, concept, and marketing. It's sad to me that so many people panned it (including the marketing) and didn't give it a chance.

The first time I tested this perfume, I told myself "ugly, not for me". Then, I tested again a few months ago and my thoughts were "wow, it is nice". Now, I am completely in love with it. It is weird: I suggest to test before buy it. Lovely bottle ! Amazing longevity and sillage

Let's see where do I start with Thierry Mugler's Womanity and all its flankers?
The only difference with the original and the others that came after it is that they had an extra note or two of something sweet like jam or strawberries to counteract the potent smell of the synthetic caviar note that's very prevalent in this original. You either love or hate this perfume, it can be quite a challenge to wear actually. Depending on your skin type you either will have the smell of sweet fig note intermingled with your sweat/perspiration or you can smell like you just had a romping good time under the sheets with Henry of Navarre, smelling like raw sex.
Regardless of anyone's opinion on this perfume, I think in a very unique way this is a potent sexy beast.
But whichever way you smell under this polarizing spectrum, the effects are definitely beast mode.

On my skin:

Riding the bike path on Coronado, the smell of the air. Oceanic, ozonic, salty. Like lightly perspired skin that has a pretty fig lotion applied to it.

It is a feminine scent, not "fishy" or "dirty" at all. Had the woody element developed more, or if the fig were a bit sweeter.....but no, this is not for me.

Adding to my last review - I also have Just Cavalli, and to me, it is slightly similar to Womanity... anyone else agree? Maybe its my dodgy nose today but I sprayed a bit of my mums then brought my Cavalli with me and sprayed that a few hours later when Womanity had faded alot.

Updating my review,now that I own this perfume I have to say that on my skin is a bit different than on paper.The initial blast is still a bit "too much" for me,albeit almost hazelnut-y/pine-y or herbal(at least on my skin according to my nose).It soon gets better,though.In about 15 minutes,it gets super-aquatic and fresh,like a breeze,and it stays like so till the end.Unfortunately,I don't perceive any fig at all,at any point,but I can safely say that it is a very special fragrance,potent (longevity up to 8 hours) with moderate sillage.Definitely it's a "try-before-buy" scent,even me hesitated the first time I sniffed it,but it well deserves a second chance and patience before coming to a verdict or a purchase!

Really special scent. Totally original in my eyes and beautifully long lasting. It changes slightly towards the end notes but its good because it feels warm and musky at this point. I wouldn't need to spray too much of this one as it is so strong as I have found with many Thierry Mugler perfumes (in a good way). Amazing smell, magical bottle, great longevity, perfect for any woman wanting to feel confident and stand out. I just love it <3

I had never passed Thierry Mugler's stand until today. I knew Alien and Angel but today I tried Angel eau sucree and Womanity. The tones looked so strange so I couldn't resist. The key word to describe Womanity is 'difference' or maybe 'surpice'.

First smell was like: Oh my God! So nice that you could imagine of an exceptionnel nutty/chocolate-like desert in an expensive restaurant. Delicious, dreamy, a true signature. After some minutes the sweet tone became green and sharp, close to be called animalic but it combined great with the savory character. Ending is woody, a bit synthetic fig essence but definitely sexy.

Conclusion for me: Woody, savory and softly fruity/salty. The bottle is amazing, the perfume unique, it's like an enchantress in a magic world that at the same time exists in ours. It can be easily a signature if your skin accepts it. I am 100% sure this perfume was made for the modern women with a busy life. It can please gourmandise lovers like me but then becomes more mature and finally sexy. It's like a super heroine that hides her true identity in the crowds!

I wore Womanity for a couple of winters and it is one of my all time favorite scents. If you have read some of my posts on the forum, you'll know I tend to pick a fragrance then wear it exclusively until it's finished. This is the only full bottle I have ever worn all the way through and loved every single day of wearing it. I never got tired of it once, which has never happened with me before. Usually by the last 1/4 I'm at least a little bored with a perfume, sometimes even with mini bottles.

Womanity is deliciously savory and nutty fig, with bracingly fresh salty-marine notes. Doesn't have the coconutty vibe that so many fig scents inexplicably default to. This is certainly the most unique fig, if not most unique fruity, perfumes there are. There is absolutely no sugar added. There is something animalic about it, it's almost musky or suede-like but not quite. Womanity is heavy in sillage and longevity and I got so many compliments while I was wearing it. Overall, a very abstracted but wearable artistic vision of the Mediterranean coast.

When I first smelled it in store, it was winter time and I could not understand the controversy over it. In fact, I thought it was very tame. When I got my own bottle, I sprayed it while it was warm outside once and perhaps experienced why some people are so repulsed by it. In warm weather, with Womanity, I get an intense rotting leaves smell and nausea/headache. In cold weather, it's one of the nicest perfumes on me - fresh, feminine, beautiful. I've experienced similar changes with other Thierry Mugler scents. Seeing a lot of reviews call it mermaid-ish and with it's light pink juice I can see some people assume it's a warm weather summery kind of scent, I think it's a winter scent.

This is my second review of Womanity, and I have ummed and aahed over beginning to write it. It is extremely long. Consider this fair warning that sleep is pretty much guaranteed if reading this review: grab a cup of tea, put your feet up, and prepare to be bored witless by my disjointed witterings.

I first tried Womanity & its flanker Womanity Pour Elles a couple of years ago. The initial herby freshness that I loved turned into a metallic, bloody, creepy mess which I had to scrub. I was sure there and then that Womanity et al were to be avoided at all costs, and had no intention at the time to ever try them again.

Bear in mind at that period of my life I was new to testing and collecting perfumes as a hobby. I was, and still am, a hard core, true devotee of TM Alien, which remains my all-time favourite and signature; I discovered a penchant for oriental vanillas (which in itself is a change from the fruity, mainstream scents of my youth) and have since developed and refined my tastes enough to know that the notes that will always draw me are jasmine, lily, and milk. None of which gave any indication that it may be a good idea to try Womanity again.

With the preference for milk notes identified, I was led to discover nutty notes, which in turn led me to salty skin-type likenesses. In particular I kept being directed towards Calvin Klein Reveal but was put off by oft-mentioned similarities to Womanity. However, I have learned to trust my instincts now about what I am confident I like in terms of notes, and Reveal contains notes which made me want to try it. So I ignored the reviews, trusted my own judgment, and bought Reveal. It was instant love.

Still, this is a review for Womanity (despite all evidence to the contrary, and if you haven't dozed off yet) so enough about Reveal. I just needed to explain how I came to try Womanity again after literally hating it before.

I decided to read more reviews on Womanity and properly pay attention to what was being described rather than whether the review was broadly 'love' or 'hate', 'fishy' or 'figgy'. And I decided to give it another chance.

I was careful with application and did the initial 2016 re-test with a single spray to each wrist. I had to grit my teeth a bit to get through the initial somewhat clinical-feeling, green, herby opening, and after an hour or so was quite enamoured with the scent close to the skin but disappointed by the general sillage, which was metallic. I got no fishy smell at all but definitely a lots-of-ocean-air-up-the-nose vibe. It left me undecided, but at least I wasn't repulsed like last time.

Today (I've nearly finished now, honest. Thanks for reading if you have made it this far!) I have tried it on, clean from the shower, and been much more bold with application. And (drumroll) lo' and behold, I love it!

I actually love Womanity. Wonders will never cease to amaze me.

The fruity, ever-so-slight sweetness is much more prominent with a more generous application, and, the scent on skin is a warm, salty, mild, not quite sweet but not sour or bitter, slightly dry, clean smell. Three hours into wearing it and I must admit that it is at its 'perfect' stage.
At the 3-hour point, the herby, fresh sillage is mostly gone, leaving just a hint of fruit, and I have to put my nose close to my skin to get the smell. I am convinced that this stage of this scent will only get better with warmer skin and am excited to try it out in summer. I'm not sure that longevity is up to much on me, unless, I have just got used to the smell, but I don't think this is the case; e.g. with Alien, I can smell it all day. Although it is a completely different type of scent, so maybe that's it...anyway. We'll see.

Thanks to anyone who managed to read this far! I have found that writing this review has helped me to decide how I feel about Womanity now. What a difference after all this time.

TL;DR; best try it for yourself. YMMV.

Surprising. Provocative. Entertaining.

Pure Mugler!

This juice is full of contradiction, completely different than what the Barbie doll-pink-punk-queen bottle design suggests. The first spritz feels as if I painted my nails on the beach, inhaling the salty sea air, all hazardous chemicals from the nail polish and eating a marshmallow. About 20 minutes later... it is perfect harmony: melon-y sweetness with a touch of salty air freshener based on a French pastry smell.

It is certainly not ordinary, and it's definitely not a crowd-pleaser. If you have an open mind and love pretzels in chocolate and cocktails with a salt rim, then you might enjoy it. Womanity is very charming!

This is like a car crash - not a pretty sight, but you just can't help looking. I can't really decide is it good or bad, but I keep sniffing it over and over again. It's fine but nothing I would want and purchase. Not because I particulary dislike it, but because I'm not into any of those salty marine kinda scents (Womanity, Reveal, Divina). It's fine if you're into that kinda thing. I myself am not.

Well its not bad if you like aquatic salty animalic fig scents. It starts off with lots of sweetish fig and woods before it gets quite salty on me. Thankfully its not fishy. I have no idea what caviar smells like but I guess that must be the sort of briney part of the scent. It would be nice to wear on warm days by day. Actually I quite like the savory aspect of the fragrance and has this sort of freshness about it. I cant imagine anyone stopping me to say I smelt lovely wearing this though! I pretty much love all TMs creations but this one is a bit borderline for me. Its nice to see perfumer really push the boundaries though so a thumbs up for that.

A well tempered fragrance, you get the beautiful fig leaf aroma mixed with the fig essence, which smells bit ozonic, like a spicy watermelon. Then, holding it all in without heading downwards to the fresh fish stall on the beach is the caviar. This is a unique entity, this "Womanity." It doesn't smell like anything I've smelled before, its expensive and sweet, woody and crude (my sister said she smelled something a bit foul about it!). However, its a winner, I love it. It's fresh, clean and a tad bit unisex?

It's on my to buy list still, at $400TT a bottle its up there on the steep side. The attendant at the fragrance counter couldn't believe I liked it, calling me a "unique" person.""We don't think we'll stock it again," she says, "it was a slow seller." Hmm, but my chemistry does love it, I got the aspects of femininity, never cheap, sweet, childbearing, a bit overbearing and evergreen, deep, soulful. It has excellent sillage and very good longevity. This is one of Mugler's best so thank you Mane.

Strange thing happened today, I tested womanity before and I hated it with a passion, In fact womanity was the first and only perfume that I have ever hated in my life. Even CK Reveal that I dislike does not come close to this one.Today I gave both perfumes another chance because honesty I hate to hate any perfume :) and surprisingly I liked Reveal and about Womanity... I did not dislike it! though I still think it is kind of dry and strong even rude.But I can see it working on the skin and becoming a unique smell.I am actually teaching my nose to enjoy this salty, woody, icy fig leaves smell. But as I remember there were other stuff written on the bottle too, Unfortunately I am not a precise person when it comes to names, so I doubt if I tested the original version or the later versions of Womanity. Now that I am smelling paper strip it seems that they extracted that fish/metal note out in that version! So for those who dislike this perfume check out the other versions of womanity.

Strange mixture of cheap candies, dried nuts and tinned sardines. If that is the idea of Mr. Mugler of what a woman is, or should smell, it's an odd idea indeed, and not very flatering. Fig? Caviar..? Seriously, what were they smoking when they had such idea..?

This is not even a perfume, is some sort of horrible, horrible mistake.

This perfume could be called anything, it doesn't really represent women, love, romance, it is so unique it would need a new word.
This is an exquisite gourmand, it is practically edible, mouthwatering, juicy, dried fruit and nuts liquor, served on a gold platter.
It takes an adventurous experienced nose to appreciate how rare a dish this is. It will not please everyone, but for those of us who taste this with closed eyes and beating hearts, we will be left wanting much more.

I got a mini of Womanity a few years ago. The stopper isn't very secure so I fear the juice is starting to turn. It used to be pink and now it's almost transparent.

Anyway. The first time I smelt Womanity I thought 'eww, sweaty'. And put it back in the cupboard for a long time. I must have tried it again at some point and discovered that the fig note was actually really nice. I always get compliments when the fig note is doing its thing. The problem with me and Womanity is that I never got that sweaty, dirty, fishy note out of my head. I swear if my body temperature is high, either because it's summer or even if the central heating is on high, the drydown always becomes fishy and gross smelling. It sucks because I love the fig and often I have no problems with it and it just gently fades in the drydown instead of radiating fish.

Would I repurchase? It depends on whether I can find a type of weather I can safely wear it in.

I confess that while I love this fragrance, when I wear it I pray nobody asks me what it is, because “Womanity” is one of the silliest names for a fragrance I have ever heard. That aside, this is gorgeous. Powerful, sensual fig with a hint of saltiness, it is bold, almost carnal, with monstrous sillage. Strictly an off-duty perfume for me.

juice needs to look neon pink, almost with a purple tint. If it looks like it's a soft baby pink or any brown shade, take the bottle back. This juice turns very easily. The EDT doesn't, but the EDP has problems with how it's kept. Make sure you keep this one in the box when storing it. It's a gorgeous fragrance, but you have to know what a fresh bottle looks and smells like.

Fish'n Figs in a bottle!
I received this one as a gift, I was so excited! As soon as I hopened the bottle I could smell a blast of fresh figs. Unfortunatly, as soon as this juice touched my skin, it transformed into a monster. The caviar/fish note took over and kept GROWING on me. Yak!
Try before you buy, (and don't give this perfume as a present either).

I have just made my tenth blind purchase.The first nine have been successful. As polarizing as Womanity is, I will either be thrilled or I will have a bottle for trade. Now, I wait....not very patiently.
UPDATE: I am one of the lucky ones! This fragrance agrees with my chemistry. I first get green, almost floral. Then, sweet fig. Finally, a sweet, lightly salted savory, but still green loveliness graced my skin. I am looking forward to trying it as the seasons change to see if and how the notes may develop differently.

Dr. Elliot's column on the worst thing he ever smelled inspired me write this review. Womanity is, without a shadow of a doubt, the most viscerally repulsive smell I've ever smelled. Not even the worst perfume - the worst SMELL.

Angel and Shalimar both nauseated me at first, but I could still handle them. Keep sniffing them, try to pick out notes, all that good stuff. I find Secretions Magnifiques strangely pleasant, even (though I don't wear that outside my house out of consideration for everyone else).

BUT THIS. I went into it blind, hadn't even read a review - I saw the beautiful bottle at the pharmacy and asked to test it. I felt bile rise up at the first sniff. It smells like a a bucket of mussels was left out in the sun for an afternoon. Not totally gone yet, but beginning to get that off smell. Drizzle some syrup over that, and garnish it with some sprigs of camphor. Now, magnify that smell 500x and give it nuclear lasting power. You have Womanity.

Mr. Mugler is either a master troll or total misogynist if this is his way of 'saluting femininity'.

Womanity is a true creation of powerful elements like the salt of the roaring ocean and the succulent sweet of new season fruits. This perfume is like no other I have ever worn. In true Thierry Mugler fashion, Womanity encapsulates the sweetness of a woman’s heart; the salt of her tears and her grounding to the earth. The perfume reminds me of the sweet but salt fragrance that the Ocean throws at certain times of the year. Womanity for women opens with a sweet burst of fresh squashed figs salted with the ocean. This sweet fig note stays for the first few hours of wear and mixes with the salty caviar to create this unique fragrance. The middle notes of the perfume settle out to a gentle fig fragrance with a hint of salt. The dry down is earthy and sweet as it finishes on a lingering fig wood-note. This perfume lasts all day, well past the point of you recognizing that you are still wearing a fragrance…but long enough that others comment on the scent trail you are leaving in your wake. I love this fragrance purely because it reminds me of salty summer days and sensual nights spent beside the Ocean – a whimsical Womanity!

Womanity is a masterpiece because it can be both a nightmare and a dream. Nobody will ever be indifferent to Womanity. It's not a type of scent that many would say about it they simply don't care.

Thankfully it is a dream for me. I find it very weird and unique in a feminine way. This is the perfect balance between sweet and savory, musky and woody and can be so DIRTY yet at the same time so lovely!

Just look at the bottle and that's exactly how the scent is. The quirky facade draws you in and the uniqueness captures your attention and just when you can't decide if you love it or hate it (like I said, no in-between phase ever with Womanity), the loveliness of its femininity which is rightly captured by the juice colour puts its mark on you forever.

Fishy smell? Well slightly yes. I remember my sister getting fish upon first sniff. But it took me a few months before once smelling the fish and not getting it again for a while now. I think it depends on people's brains and what scents they get stronger.

Anyways that slightly rotten and salty fish out of the water smell (which is the caviar note) isn't repulsive for me because I actually love the sea and fish smell!

What others smell on me though is a sweet, aromatic and earthy smell which is also quite savory and woody. Sticky but in an ethereal way. Indeed very similar to Chanel Chance EdT.

I have repurchased this three times and I believe I will for as long as I can find it. This is one of the balanced perfumes that I can wear any time, anywhere and many days in a row without getting tired. It is best in hot weather, but I enjoy it all-year around.

For confident (and maybe domineering!) women.

A genius perfume. Or maybe it is just mad?!

It's an extraordinary scent, worthy of being next in line after the groundbreaking Angel and Alien, and it annoys me silly that, probably, thanks to the sweat/genital/fish controversy it is getting so much hate and is not selling that well, disappearing from many places already. Without it, I cannot imagine anyone getting anything fishy out of it!
It's a sweet, gourmandy-fruity scent that is big, unique and sexy. It's gorgeous.
But it needs to be worn fall-winter rather than summer because it's too big for hot weather, just like Angel and Alien. I love it.

This smells like men's cologne. At first spray, I smell sweet fig body spray, but then it just smells like salt. No fish, but pure salt. It doesn't smell like sweaty skin or genitals. The salt is way too clean for that. Dissolve 1 tablespoon of salt in two tablespoons of water. Add a couple of sprays of fig body spray from Bath and Body Works, imagine ten times the strength of that scent, and you'll get Womanity. It makes me want to sneeze. And it has something bitter and burnt-raisin-like, which is the part that is a bit off putting and masculine to me. BUT my boyfriend likes it.
The drydown is sweet dried fig.
It's also somewhat jam-like.
There's a men's cologne that is similar but smoother, juicier and less salty. It's called John Varvatos by John Varvatos.
Just an aside: Where did the idea that vaginas smell like fish come from? I mean, I've had my funky days, but I have never ever smelled like fish. That's a sign of bacterial vaginosis, guys. It's called antibiotics. Take em.
Edit: I sprayed this perfume yesterday, and my boyfriend said it smelled like leaves that need to be raked. It also filled the entire apartment, and I smell it just as strongly 24hrs later.

b.) Are just basing blind buys on reviews and
c.) Someone who is used to green juicy figs like the one from the Body Shop.
d.) Likes mainstream floral/fruity-floral frags

Some reviews are misleading so I want to make it clear. This fragrance is dark green bordering balsamic. First five seconds upon spraying is grass-like, slightly spicy-floral alcohol followed by sweet, sundried/newly baked juicy figs COVERED in bitter, salty caviar. If you have no idea how it smells like, it's like a fruity(fig/pomegranate) ashtray. HIGHLIGHTING THE WORD ASHTRAY. It smells like incense, tobacco and carbon from burnt dried leaves while screaming GREEN. Or probably it smells like a burnt toast with fig jam lol. As if you inhaled too deep to detect the figs amongst the smoke. After an hour or two, it becomes vivid, nutty, slightly spicy-woody and much more complex.

Honestly, I didn't expect it like this but I LOVE IT. But don't expect compliments especially children or tame adults as they might just note this as an after-cig scent. The bottle may be pink, but the perfume itself is dark. Not purple, but rather a deep bronze.

Silage: Heavy
Longevity: 6 hours +
Score: 8.5/10

Weird, chaotic, amazing, unique! The saltiness of caviar makes the dry down smell a little "weird", that animalic scent of....hmmm...sort of not so dirty-yet-not-so-clean underwear! I can't wear it alone, I have to layer it with something else just to get rid of that weird dry-down, plus some "noses" were sort of "offended" when I worn it alone! I loveeee to hate this perfume and I am still wondering...should I keep it? Should I let it go?

Two years ago, when I had the Womanity, I also caught the scent gland.)))

Time passed. Aroma revealed a very different side. In addition to a fig leaf and I feel a big flower bouquet and interweaving juicy fruit. The sound is very gentle and pure, like water in a mountain waterfall.

I keep loving and hating this. But it always gives strong emotions. Right now I'm at the place where I find Womanity to be pure brilliancy in a bottle. How is it even possible to have so different and strong reception of the same scent? I don't understand!

I think trying to describe notes doesn't make sense with this fragrance. It's pure allusions that everyone just have to live themselves. Try it, give it a chance, maybe you'll hate it or love it. It's strange, that's for sure.

This is kind of like the salted caramel of fragrances without the caramel. It's in a genre of its own aside from sharing it with Bali by Nora Gasparini at L'Atelier Parfums et Creations in Nusa Dua. Initially, the sweetness of the fig tempered with the saltiness of the caviar make this perfume a delight and on dry down a warm and creamy coconut and woody note come forward to mingle with the fig and salt water and it's just incredible and transportative. To me, it smells like Bali in a bottle. Not the cheap and nasty sector known as Kuta, but the swanky upmarket restaurants and villas, the shopping strips of Seminyak and Ubud... I guess it's the foodie qualities - without being a typical gourmand - that reminds me of fine dining next to the ocean on a balmy night in June

marth5tewart is a genius! Although I love Womanity, I would never have thought of pairing it with a man's fragrance. I haven't tried it paired with A*men Pure Wood, but pairing it with the original A*Men is something else! It gives it more depth and complexity. Sheer beauty. Thanks a million martha, I'll be looking to pair it with this and other A*Men flankers.

I tried a spray of this in store and loved it so much i begged the husband for it for Xmas, got the bottle and omg something went wrong because it smells nice for a while then turns disgusting and i have to scrub and scrub to get the smell off. Ive never got on with the other ones like Angel and Alien which always spark a major headache, thought I'd found one id get on with but maybe not.

Major bonus points for the bottle design though.

This is a seriously weird fragrance.
To me, all the Mugler Fragrances share one trait: To combine something that feels almost edible with something completely off (least apparent in Alien perhaps).
Womanity starts with a blast of salt and fruit. I wouldn't necessarily say it smells of caviar, to me it's more like someone pulled out a huge chunk of seaweed freshly out of the saltwater and slices a giant overripe fig on top. The combination results in a strangely delicious salty-sweaty bittersweet musky skin scent -Do I want to eat it? Yes, no, yes, no. It's one of those love-or-hate fragrances. I find it sexy as hell, very unusual, clean and dirty at the same time.

Love love love it. Keep sniffing back of my hand. Find it far from off-putting or offensive. Imagine future dupes could easily smell horrid. However, Womanity is a gift to fragrances. Fig and caviar? Certainly not gourmand. Could easily be worn by men who fit this. I guess I get the sweet and sour. Going away from notes, this is a duality well married. It is light but lush. It seems to float. Yet, it has a deep sea essence. Getting more salt than sour. Not sure about finding it sweet, at least not compared to current trends. Maybe not an everyday, office fume. May be better suited to nights on the town. Love it ~ sort of a clean powerhouse and That is something that seemed mutually exclusive prior to Womanity. Bravo.

Wow..millions of comments here and I think that alone shows what a genius Thierry Mugler is..I hate this perfume..But I love everything else about it..The very fact that it is a creation of Mr. Mugler was reason enough for me to get one..The design of the bottle, the artfulness in it and the message it conveys..all a reason to buy it and just keep it for the beauty of it..I also must say I so much enjoyed the beautiful necklace it came with..the woman mask with fringe..So beautiful!! I don't wear the perfume..But it will be a treasure kept unworn.

I'm a complete outsider to this scent and the sampled Alien + Angel didn't work for me. So i had no idea this existed and was unaware of the hype and discussions. Then 2 months ago I sprayed a few perfumes at the airport and this bottle catched my attention because I found it really beautiful ( the one on photo ) and I loved the heavy iron and chain. From the ones I tried then only this one was appealing, a breezy light incense, not too sweet and comforting woodsy. Wondered there and then if it were 'that' BoudoirVW... NO name on bottle or shelf....
Since then I'd removed this experience from my mind and started only researching the possible identity very recently.
Succeeded , came here and after my readings I'm in a state of perplexity... only a few notes and I failed completely.. and here the theatrical reactions and polarising negativity.
For me no love ( too little testing ) but a big like, the ONLY one of that day, not striking but natural and appealing.... So I'm shocked about my failure.... maybe something 'new'... a suspicion ..caviar ? figs? hello ?... 'just a light oriental' .
No talent in my nose while secretely been hoping for little progress.

Good scent, whazz- all-the -fuzz...?

First off; awesome bottle! feminine and bad ass!

This has a very fresh citrussy/ alcohol/ metallic opening followed by a subtle salty note (caviar? ) The dry down is mostly about the natural sweet fig and fig leaves (I smell something like fresh leaves) with a salty edge.

I love it and think it's very unique. It's a strong perfume with a sharp opening and a soft dry down. Although I really like it, I can understand it's not for everyone.

I blind bought this a couple of years ago and have never regretted it. It's funny, because I chose Womanity because the reviews from Mugler fans were mixed. The only Mugler perfume I'd tried before it was Angel, which to this day I find a cloying migraine-inducing monster. I hoped that Womanity would be something a bit different.

I was right. Womanity is fresh but in the way standing next to a rocky sea-weedy ocean is fresh. It is wild, salty and a little metallic, with just that hint of something underneath that's not quite pleasant--that hint of things alive in the shallows. Soft mollusks easing their bodies out of their shells. I know it sounds horrific but that's the beauty of Womanity. Just like no one ever recalls the smell of the sea in all its complexity as unpleasant, so too do Womanity's notes remain in perfect tension.

I get almost no fig or anything even remotely sweet on my skin. Because of that, I'm always a little self-conscious when I wear Womanity. I love it but I never know how it's being perceived by others. So far, I've only received compliments though. That's great because the sillage and longevity of this is amazing. I love this perfume in all its weirdness and am more than happy to take advantage of its great price given how polarizing it is.

My third review of this....I just can't say enough about this juice! Out of all of my fragrances I've ever worn in my LIFE this gets the most compliments. There hasn't been one time wearing this that someone hasn't commented on it. If there is such a thing as a soul mate fragrance this is mine. This is what my Heaven would smell like.

Fig doesn't rest well on my skin. Especially when combined with briny salt water... I understand where they're going with this, I understand the concept.
My body disagrees with this blend. I didn't expect it to be so controversial to my nose, but this harmony of contrasts doesn't work for me at all.

I have written a review of this before, but I still have a little sample bottle that I feel drawn to sniffing every once in a while because this scent is just so incredibly alluring and intriguing. It is highly symbolic, and as a postgrad student it triggers the obsessive thinker in me. I won't bore you all with a complete analysis of where I think the creators were going with it, I will simply regale you with some more of my first impressions. Read on, valiant reviewers.

Thierry Mugler has done it again. He has fascinated the World of Fragrance. This scent is completely beyond the bounds of normal perfumery. It is not pretty, it smells amazing don't get me wrong! But this is ART, make no mistake. It takes you somewhere else. I don't know how the creators of this fragrance did it, but they captured the very essence of salty sea air and the fullness of the fig fruit and the very life cycle of the tree itself- symbolising womanhood and reclaiming the very word 'humanity'. I think the reason why this has so many dislikes is because people just don't get it, they are unwillingly to go where the artist needs them to go to understand. There are so many aspects of this fragrance and its advertising campaign that are funny, captivating and thrilling.

The scent itself is so unique and unlike anything else that I just cannot get enough. Look at Angel, plenty of people despise it. YET, it won the most prestigious award known to perfumery. Everyone's a critic haha. I cannot praise Womanity highly enough. I will not rest until I have a bottle of my own, and get myself its flanker Eau Pour Elles. Womanity affects me that much emotionally that I get weird dreams when I wear it. And it lasts for days and days.

Thierry Mugler needs another award for this.

OMG! This is one very delicious fragrance. Unique. My skin somehow projects the sweet fig notes with underlying addictive savoury caviar in the background. It's not cloying but a harmony of sweet and savoury that makes me smell my wrist again and again and again.....I'm writing while still smelling it. I will buy a bottle now and make this my signature. How could anyone dislike this?!

Done. I bought a bottle of 80ml EDP. Veeery hard to find nowadays. I'm lucky I finally located this full bottle. Divine intervention! Hahahaha

This is love or hate fragrance.
Most unique I ever had (more then Hypnotic poison, Opium, Versace Black crystal...)
Most poeple don't like it. Better to say hate it. Men don't like it. Not sexy or seductive at all. But nonetheless Amazing perfume, a masterpiece.
When I read other reviews I really cant' relate to any of the descriptions. It is not sweet, nor fresh, it doesn't smell pink, salty , fruity....
It is for person with selfesteem, character, cold, strong, determinated.
This is a bit crazy description, but the best occasion to wear it would be: if I was going to murder someone, I would wore this perfume.

This scent is extremely savory. Depending on the day and air temperature when I wear it, I feel I can almost taste the salt. Very bizarre mixture of fruity, fresh, and woodsy... Typical Thierry, very polarizing, you'll love it or you'll hate it. It's still growing on me personally, but it's edging closer to a love, especially with the coming cooler weather letting those woodier notes really come out to play.

As far as longevity goes, I wore this on a date one muggy summer night over a month ago. Recently grabbed the same mesh top I wore it with out of my closet and it still smelled pretty dang heavily of Womanity. So there's that...

Oh dear. I bought Womanity Elles by mistake, a blind buy (as someone I know wears Womanity & I loved it on them) absolutely loved it! So, thought I'd try the original Womanity in store. Within a short time of spraying I had to ask if I could have a wet wipe or something to remove it, boy oh boy it smelled bad on me! Too sweet, too salty, just doesn't like my skin...it was beautiful on the woman I know. Gutted. Glad I got Elles in error as that is lovely on me!

I do not enjoy women's scents, but I tested in the shop and what can I say, it's good and pleasant. For me it's not utterly unique, just soft, clean, feminine, sweetish-powdery and fresh a little bit. On me does not smell fish, blood or other weird and freaky things, just screams womanity:D For my taste is too feminine and innocent. It has moderate sillage, 6-8 hours longevity. I need more power and brutality, altough I need silky and low-key stuffs sometimes, so maybe I'll hunt a little bottle from this juice:)

To me, a winner of a fragrance is one that has your nose to your wrist in a very compulisive and addictive way. Ha! This is totally that fragrance for me! This and Angel. It's been a long time since I've had this kind of pleasurable addiction to a perfume.

Thank you, Thierry Mugler! I am a fiend for your creations!!!! It's really quite insane. Wrist to nose, over and over and over again... Whether at home or out in public. I am totally obsessed.

Quite the compilation, as I find it is greater than the sum of it's parts. It satisfies the cravings for floral, clean, beachy and gourmand.
This feels like a smooth evening Summer scent. This is soft floral, with an oceanic background. This lends itself to the imagining of being at a beachside luxury restaurant with lush florals and coconut tanning lotion hanging in the humid air as you are just about to tuck into a creamy dessert. Neither too salty nor too sweet....just lovely.
This has moderate sillage (at about 3 or so feet) with excellent staying power. Truly enjoyable.

I'll be brief, because I guess Womanity is one of those fragrances that you either get or you don't, and I just don't. Like every sample I test I wore it several times, although the the very first time I tested it was really bad - I found the combination of very sweet and very salty (or let's just say it like it is: fishy) almost physically upsetting. The next couple of times were better because I was expecting it, but I still for the life of me don't understand why you'd want caviar/fish as a note in your perfume. Maybe it translates as a subtle saltiness on lucky others, but on me it smells like dinner and dessert thrown together, and I can only feel queasy about it as a result.

How can a fragrance be so detestable at first, even second or third sniff.... but then... something calls you back- and you decide to tough it out and see what happens- and lo' and behold- wow- something magnificent unfolds! I guess it might be that our noses aren't used to particular scents- say- very unique scents- it's just something you've never smelled before- maybe your nose is accustomed to all things sweet- or bold in a familiar and uniformed way-

Either way... I once detested this fragrance- and the first few times I tried it, I washed it off right away without giving it a chance. Once I let it sit for awhile and become a part of me, the once sour notes that I thought to be offensive and pungent- have turned into something quite exotic and wonderful to me! I can't get enough! It sweetens on my skin, but not in a way that will annoy me during those times when I want to smell anything but sweet. Know what I mean?

Salty, oceanic, a little sour, but in a delightful masculine sort of way. This could be unisex. I can smell the fig and I haven't cared for the smell of figs in most other fragrances, but this has changed my mind. This is so unique. Thierry Mugler is truly a genius. I have so much respect for this designer! There's a good lesson in this too- the things that we find repulsive because they are so different than us- so we write them off right away and tell the world that these unique things are awful and gross and ugly (or stinky)- we really ought to open our minds- because we can have the chance to experience some pretty wonderful and otherworldly kind of things! This perfume is a metaphor for life.

Absolute awesomeness... xo

EDT: This is now my favorite scent. I get excited and eager to put this stuff on before I head out for the day. And then when I'm out, I can't stop smelling my wrist. This is fun! I'm bidding on 3 bottles of Womanity on eBay- lol my sample ran out today! There is no way I'm not going to have this in my life! It's a must have! We're officially stuck like glue. :)

P.s. I fear that Womanity is becoming so dominate that none of my other perfumes can cut it. I'm going to need to move on towards bigger and better things because Womanity blows every other perfume out of the water, right now! I can't think of anything that smells better... I've got Michael Kors Michael Kors on right now and I went crazy over this perfume, prior to meeting Womanity, but now... I'm smelling my wrist and my nose is saying- nah, sorry, buddy, but I am no longer impressed! It's all about the Womanity. Haha I'm turning into a fragrance groupie. Like this perfume is a living entity or something. It's alive, don't you think??

I was hesitant to try this because I have already read many negative reviews and came across things like "fishy", "fishy fish", "blood", "lady parts", and my favorite, "excrement". I tried it, alright! And guess what? IT DOESN'T SMELL LIKE ANY OF THOSE THINGS!

Womanity is one of those perfumes that you will not forget because it does smell unique. A gourmand but not your average gourmand that leaves itself so obviously stated with typical notes. I will admit that it certainly smells salty and a bit oceanic. Enticing. Clean salt, like a pristine ocean, with purple pink skies, smooth sand, soft rock formations, gentle waves....the type of beaches that are on screen backgrounds or I would imagine beach heaven to be like. I do not detect a single fish note in this. Sweet, bright, juicy figs with a touch of green dominate this fragrance. There is a note I cannot pin down, is it woods? Coconut? Straw/hay? It adds a milky touch that rounds this strange savory fragrance.

Everything together with the salt, and sweet figs.... it is beautiful and certainly a feminine fragrance. This is natural beauty. Makes me think of stories of the first woman on Earth or naked goddesses and mermaids coming out of the ocean. I'm sure they would be lovely, ethereal, bare skinned and smell like Womanity. It's so simple yet so tastefully done....Work of art.

My my my!! I just sampled it today and Oh god! At first sniff it smelled like worn shoes plus something floral/aquatic. When I returned home,I left the paper that the S.A. sprayed on my desk and left again,only to discover a couple of hours later that the scent lingered till the door of the house.I still didn't like it on the paper,not so much like at the beginning but lingering in the atmosphere it was more ozonic and pleasant.To be precise, on the paper (after 2 hours) it reminded me something of Dolce&Gabbana Light Blue, and in the air it was surprisingly similar to Halloween by Jesus Del Pozo...I don't know what to say,I'm on the fence,but I understand why is there a controversy about this one...My mom loved it though! And it is obviously (like all the other Muglers) very very potent,so use it with a light hand!

I absolutely love this perfume. It's figgy but not too girly because of the caviar note, which softens it and gives it depth. I read the reviews before hand and was not a Mugler fan in the past so I was not expecting to like this. I don't get the fish comments at all. My husband hates vanilla so finding a more seductive fragrance without it has been a challenge. Womanity is absolutely addictive and seductive.

To me it opens very green, smells like leaves and branches. It must be fig leave, i guess from the notes. This greenness is balanced with some slight bitter saltiness that i actually find kind of interesting. Later the greenness and the bitterness and the saltiness fade away leaving your usual powdery sweetness that is so common these days. The sweetness is not very sugary, but rather fruity, that is coming from fig fruit, i guess from the notes.
I don’t really get all the controversiallity about this one. I don’t also understand the strong polarizing opinions so many have about it. To me, this is a perfume like many others. I actually don’t see anything special or interesting there. The bottle, yes, it may attention catching with gentle pale pink liquid and industrial metallic top. The scent – well, it is just like many others. I don’t get anything sexy or anything “fish” there. I do not smell caviar either. If not for so many discussions here, i wouldn’t guess it is considered provocative. I have now done my best to test it several times in hopes to get «dirty panties» or «sexy salty» or «fish» notes, but i didn’t get it anyway so i give up. It is too sweet for my taste and too «perfumey». Seems to be very long lasting that also makes me tired.

I love it in periods - when wet, it was very "perfumey" but on first dry, it smelled absolutely nothing. It just smelled like my own skin after swimming in the ocean. Then, I got some fresh greens, like a crushed flower steam, almost - and then, sadly, fig got overpowering and turned this into a cloying and sweet mess. There's something about my skin, and I never learn - I should avoid all kinds of fruits...

Well Today I received my own bottle of womanity and it was actually a blind pick . So I sprayed and I waited and Bam All I GOT at first , is some citrus a pleasant citrus and a lot of fig or fig leaf , it's sweet and it smells so good and I kept waiting for the salty note like most of you call it . But guess what ?! at first I didn't get a salty note , all I got was a metallic cold atmosphere along with the sweet fig . It's like a bipolar fragrance , you want smell sweet on side but cold and robotic on the other side ( I guess that's why thierry mugler him self called the fragrance womanity; the nature of women : they can be sweet , lovable and full Femininity but they can also be Cold hearted , sneaky and evil ) , it's quite pleasant but it can be nauseous to certain people who are not familiar with the Caviar salty note I promise you it can gives you a headache . While I'm already a thierry mugler house's fan , I'm used to strong perfumes such as Angel ( the patchouli bomb ) and Alien ( The jasmine Bomb ) but what you get from womanity isn't too much ( sometimes the best way is to keep it simple ) You'll get sweet and salty/metallic pleasant fragrance . and to get over the metallic feeling and actually getting the salty/oceanic note you'll have to be in open air and you'll suddenly feel like you are having a vication on fancy Yacht in the middle of the ocean .
Overall The scent is unique , amazing and something you should actually try before you buy because most people are afraid of salty note but for me it's actually a stand out .
Don't try to over-spray this juice , it's so potent that it can actually put you in a coma LOl . One spray on my arm and my nose already hurts :D ( maybe because I slept just 3 hours the whole day :( who knows ) and for the guys don't let the name of this fragrance push you off . Try it , you may never know , xoxo

I have tried this today in a local perfume shop. While I have to admit I personally don't like this scent (because it is quite difficult for me to appreciate sea-like fragrances), I think this is quite an interesting perfume and if you like particular notes or accords, this is worth its price.

This scent isn't that fishy, though. It is more marine. In fact, this reminded me of Fiore dell'onda by L'erbolario, an authentic marine and slightly fishy scent and the fig is very salty.

This perfume is special somewhat and something new, almost niche. If you have a taste for the unique, a very strong personality and a good skin chemistry, this might be for you :)

This is a strange, beautiful, contradictory fragrance. The fig note is not a lush, photorealistic fig, but rather an abstract pastiche of various elements which combine to suggest something not entirely unlike fig. This, combined with a harsh, salty-metallic tang which almost burns the nose, confirms to me that this is not intended to be mistaken for anything found in nature.

And yet, there lurks a definite suggestion of nature and her mysterious fluids at the heart of Womanity. The smell of sex. To my mind, not particularly male or female, but just generally the smell of sex and skin. Clean, freshly showered, and not at all sweaty, but nevertheless present.

The name and marketing seem to be a satire of the cliches of heavily gendered perfume advertising. The fragrance itself is completely unisex.

This is a brashly synthetic fragrance which somehow also smells almost embarrassingly human. A fragrance whose concept is supposedly the very essence of womanhood, but which is actually completely unisex. A fragrance which, despite being both unusual and daring, is entirely wearable and pleasant.

I tried this in a hurry while shopping for something else. The opening was interesting, lemony caviar, salty, savoury but definitely fresh. Then it turned into something heavy, strong and old fashioned, somewhat weird but only for ten minutes or maybe less. Then it became nutty and after that, it settled into a sweet fig, salty but not sickeningly sweet. It's so different, so unique so fresh and perfect for the summer. I guess it matched my chemistry. I was originally going to buy the 30 ml but went all the way and bought the 80 ml, as well as the deodorant. Unusual, unique...I love it.
P.S. TM perfumes are too heavy for me to bear but this one is perfect.
Edited to add: the roll-on deodorant has only fig notes. It's really nice.
The bottle is so mysterious, with cryptic designs and markings, like they were etched thousands of years ago and hide secret meanings about the beginning of the world and the secrets of the universe.

That caviar note is very gentle, not in your face. this is a summer scent, conjures up images of a ripe fig tree near the beach, salty sweet crisp fresh.
I love this scent. the longevity is fantastic, this is a walk into spray, or just one burst on the skin. Just one though. Love the bottle, another winner from TM.

I read many reviews that said Womanity had a fishy scent. I'm confused, because there is nothing approaching fishy at all about this on me. It's a sweet, woody yet ozonic and a just a bit salty. I waited until it was warmer to review Womanity, and I'm glad I did. A very nice aquatic for summer. Reminds me of a night time stroll on the beach.

I love the bottle design, it's quite intriguing. Unfortunately the scent itself is something a bit uninspiring but that could be due to the fact it's winter where I am right now. I think I'll put this one away and try it again during the warmer months.

Top marks for bottle design though!

I don't know why this fragrance doesn't get more love for it's so lovely and easy to wear. A sweet swapper sent me a sample of this and I was expecting something nasty but was really surprised to find out it was lovely. It smells so clean and fresh with a touch of ocean saltiness. My daughter even said that she thought it smelled like shampoo. If you were influenced by the bad reviews like I was, at least sniff this and you may find out that you love it. I sure don't smell any fish in this and I don't know how others are getting it. This one was love at first sniff for me...mmmmm.

This piece of art i will tolerate to wear. It's a spicy, sweet scent with dimension. Totally not boring or disgusting like alien or angel.

This is some other type of tea, it leave the leaves behind when you walk pas somebody. But not in an annoying way.

I did not expected that i will like this perfume but i did.
I recommend smell it first in the store before buying.. because of the fact that it may be heavy for some people, to tolerate this smell. Thats why i said i will tolerate this perfume because i am not a big fan of heavy perfumes but this 1 is verry nice.. so that's why you should try it first in the shop if you are not a big fan of heavy smell.

My description of the smell: Dark red rose mixed with sweet syrup wine, tiny bit of orange blossom, and definitely some type of lokum.. there is also a little salt added. It also dominates with some type of flower that i cannot point my nose at wich flower it is. But it's a nice blend that's for sure!!
It last all day!!!!!!!!
I really don't care about the brand or bottle of a perfume, to me it's important with what kind of smell i am dealing with.

Disclaimer: This does not contain any fig smell in it. Don't know how the company manage to say that it does?

Sigh...there is no fish at all. It's all marketing. "Cavier" recreated in the lab is just water (helional) and whatever they use to recreate salt.

To me, this scent is a fig tree by the ocean. It's aquatic, sweet and unique but not fishy at all. It lasts until you wash it off and even then, well, it's still sort of there.

I have to edit this review, because since almost a half year, Womanity and all Mugler's big creations have managed me inn! This is a perfume not many can pull on, but who can, will do it marvelously! Am a proud wearer! :-) I love it, I really do and I don't find any of those funny smells invoked inn here. It is good, just too good if I say it plane and simple, on my skin.

Womanity is probably one of my favorite fragrances and my all time favourite Thierry Mugler fragrance. Unlike Angel and Alien I feel like Womanity is more subdued and suggestively sexy where as Angel and Alien are more obnoxious and almost abrupt on my skin...with saying that, I love all three but Womanity is alot easier to wear and I don't have to worry if I'm offending anyone. On my skin it is the perfect blend of salty and sweet. It has an almost fleshy sort of quality which makes it smell quite erotic and sensual. I picture women in Victorian England laying naked amongst figs and fig leafs with their salty-creamy skin glistening in the hot sun. I'm totally addicted to this and just so in love with it.

I blindly tried this scent not knowing exactly what the notes are, and to me, this smells like delicate flowers floating in water amongst damp, woody trees. This perfume smells like youthful weddings. It's sweet, happy, and feminine. Perfectly named. In no way do get any hints of fish, but do agree with the saltiness - it's almost black pepperish, which makes it unique.

As with all Mugler fragrances, silage is moderate to heavy, and I can smell it even after a few hours of application. Does not disappoint. Dry down stays linear, although seems slighty more dry than before.

Update: after wearing Womanity for several days, the saltiness became even more apparent and heavy. The scent became too heavy for me to wear daily, but it would make a nice special occasion or a night/going out dancing perfume.

Mugler is one ingenious house. Womanity is, like Angel and Alien, groundbreaking. And like Angel it's name is seriously misleading!

Womanity is simultaneously salty, fruity, woody and everything in between:) deep ripe figs mingle with caviar aroma that's salty and deeply marine-ish, not fishy like some reviewers pretend! a nice dry wood accord ground the composition. It's sillage is very summery and salty-fresh! Very unique.

EDIT: As much as womanity smells complex, woody, fruity and salty up-close, as much it's sillage from afar is a simpler salty/fresh scent. Kind of weird huh...

The sillage is very potent,especially in the first two hours. During these two hours the citrus top note is prominent. On my skin it smells like the first urination in the morning after a long night of drinking liquor. My bf noticed this perfume at first during this point and really loved the smell. He may be smelling it differently than i am. After the strong urine like smell passes the figs finally come out with the most beautiful woods i've ever encountered in a woman's perfume.
No more than 2 sprays is needed at a time. I find this fragrance lasts and lasts. I can smell it on my skin and clothes upon waking up the next morning. This is one of my favorites.
I didn't think i was going to enjoy this parfum as much as i do because of the pee smell i get at first but it is sooo wonderful 2 hours later through the rest of the night!

It is controversial. There really is nothing grey about it, either you like/love it, or hate it (apparently).

I really like Womanity. Especially on hot days, she is a real fresh treat to wear. Her juicy figs, the slight bitter/earthy fig leafs and strange (far away) caviar make a great composition. There is a lot more in the blend, but I can't put my finger on it). And as with every fragrance of Thierry Mugler, it has the typical 'TM-sweetnote-signature'. What I want to say is, you can immediately smell it's of the TM fragrances, Angel and Alien share the same sweet tone. The most positive thing about that is that you can easily tell a counterfeit from the real (in my opinion). Fake's don't have that blast, that sweet signature which is pretty strong.

Womanity is a little provocative, and I had to think about that one. Why the name? Well, the only thing Eve wore was a fig leaf. 'Ladyparts' seem to have a 'fishy' type of smell (I don't really get fish in Womanity). I think it's really thought through and I like that. But hey, that's what I think, I don't know if it's true.

Her sillage is pretty huge, but stays for easily 6 hours and re-lives with heat. Womanity is my summery fragrance and wears beautiful on my skin.

Sorry, all Womanity lovers! I was really intrigued and interested to try this fragrance. It turned out to be just totally not my thing! I did not get a single note listed (or non-listed but perceived by others): no figs, fig tree, caviare (or fish, or body smell for that matter!). Just purely simple cheap artificial odour of air freshener. Gave it about 3 hours hoping it will change (I always give any perfume a chance, never scrub off straight away) but no, did not work! So washed it off in the end - what relief!

I respect Thierry Mugler for his Angel - it is revolutionary and very different - but I never liked or could wear it either. Perhaps TM is just not my cup of tea

Love the bottle - pink but with an edgy grey metal top/sprayer. I expected a sweet feminine scent from the pink juice but in reality it is woody and lightly sweet. If that's fig, then so be it. I don't detect salt and I love it. May project so not office appropriate. Hubby loves it. Need I say more? Will have to score a bottle somehow.

One spray on me
Sillage: a foot but woody rather than sweet if that makes a difference
Longevity: two hours then skin scent

I don't know if I can put into words how much I LOVE Womanity. I wear it only in April through September., it is my signature summer scent. The initial blast is sweet, fresh figgy, with a good bit of wood and a metallic edge. Then comes the briny, sweaty, salty oceanic notes, mixing perfectly with the sweet fresh fig. Sexy, Sexy, Sexy. I apply it in my hair, behind my neck, dab behind the ears, inner elbow, and dab in the cleavage as well. It's smells better when it mixes with sweat, IMO. Living in hot and humid South Carolina that is big positive!One of the only fragrances out of my ridiculously large perfume collection my husband compliments. Yes, I realize that salty briny qualities can be off putting to the unfortunate souls whose chemistry doesn't work. Too bad for them! It's such a unique sexy, salty, and savory smell. There is nothing like it! Smells great swimming at the beach and lasts all day through anything. Sweating, swimming, all day long I get wafts of this gorgeous scent. Can last weeks on clothing!I have womanity taste of fragrance as well. It is good and lacks some of salty caviar notes, so if u don't like the original give TOF a try. I wear that one year round and get many compliments. It's safer...not better though!

i caved. the packaging is so interesting and the reviews so all over the place that i had to try it.

and now i have.


this is kinda how i was expecting Fame (Lady Gaga) to smell - but it didn't. i expected that one to be strange and it turned out to be anything but, at least on me.

this, though? one spray on my inner arm nearly 20 hours ago and this sucker is still going strong.
unhappily.

my brain keeps saying this smells like a bad seafood restaurant. bleach and chemicals trying to cover up ocean smells.


i just can't.

i like the interesting and refillable bottle, though, so i'm incredibly tempted to dump the perfume and reuse the bottle.

Hm. I'm not sure if I fell for this because of the smell itself or because it's just so odd that I'm bound to appreciate it.

I don't get any caviar and also I'm not really sure if this is how figs actually smell like.
To me this is salt, smoke, tobacco, wood and faint frankincense. Reminds me a lot of the background of Lolita Lempicka by Lolita Lempicka.

Different, distinctive, recognizable and very bold smell. I would even call it fearsome.
Not for everyone, nor for everyday.
Lovely.

What a wonderful scent ! I re-discovered Wamanity a few months ago because when it first came out, it was a "mhee" for me. I remember my tant back in 2010 coming from the perfume shop with this brand new scent in the utterly unique bottle. Personally, I think the bottle is a work of art, kind of gothic which is not my style at all but it has something to it that I really love. Plus, the little chain is such a good idea even though it makes the applying process a little bit difficult as I don't know what to do with it ahah. 

Back to the scent. I know what I'm talking about when we talk about figs, fig leaves and fig trees as I have a fig tree in the garden at my home in Spain. The fragrance opens with a BLAST of JUICY figs ! I've never smelled such juicy figs and I'd like that my fig tree produces such amazing juicy figs ! Or even find them when I do my groceries at a store ahah. It feels like you've been bombarded with millions of figs that just explode once they reach you and then cover you with their juice. Sounds sexual isn't it ? ;)

As for the caviar note that so many find repulsive, I actually like it a lot ! It's very different from what we are used to smell and that's certainly because well, I don't have the luck to eat caviar every day. The caviar gives an airy feel to the scent and makes it lighter. I don't mean the scent is week, not at all ! I'm just saying that after the inital blast of fig, which can be a bit heavy for those who don't like fruity perfumes, the caviar note bring freshness and makes the scent much more versatile. Like walking along the see in the evening with you feet naked, you smell and feel the sea water... Whoah, this image make me want to go on holiday !

Womanity stays linear and as I described it for something like 6 hours on my skin, which is absolutely amazing as I have a very dry skin and it literally drinks perfume. The sillage is VERY heavy for the 5 first hours, especially if you spray it on your clothes. Everytime you move, people will notice you. Then, after 5 hours, Womanity settles a LITTLE bit but is still very noticeable. At that time, it evolves to become a very green scent. I don't get much of the woodsy fig tree note but I get a LOT of fig leaf which make the scent quiet remarkable. I've already been told various time "Whoah, you just smell like you've been rolling in the grass for HOURS !" Funny ! 

About the metallic feel some people talk about, it's true that it has such a bizarre feel but don't get me wrong, it's quiet pleasant, and present ! And it fits the bottle quiet well as the metallic top part is cold and heavy. 
If you want to picture this metallic feel, that's how I'd describe it : if you have a metal box to store your coffee, think about something cold and smell the lid of the box ! Weird you say ? Maybe but that cold feeling along this smell of metal with a little of coffee is what I get from Womanity. 

After 10 hours, it becomes a skin scent and becomes only noticeable if someone comes very close to you. But if you sprayed it on your clothes, it's still going strong ! 
Just to give you an example, three weeks ago I decided to practice a little bit of sport and went running round a lake. I was wearing a shirt and Womanity so I had to change my clothes to wear a t-shirt. I forgot my sport bag at my friend's home and didn't get it back until last Friday so that's 3 weeks later. When I finally could put my clothes to wash, I could still, not detect, but really smell Womanity ! That's amazing, after 3 weeks it was still going strong. 

Ouch, sorry for the long post ahah ! 
To conclude, Womanity is an amazing scent that lasts and lasts, it's very different from what's on the market and so it might be that people around you don't like it. I just want to add that, in my opinion, despite the name, it's very unisex and doesn't smell especially feminine so any guy that loves little fruity, different kind of fresh, it being more on the salty side, and very green scent must try it. If you want the bottle to look a little more masculine, buy one with an old batch code as with the time, the pink juice becomes yellowish without affecting the scent itself. :) 

Ohhh, I forgot something important ! As opposed to the stats up there and the other comments, I only rock Womanity in winter or autumn (Belgium) as I don't really like it in spring or summer. In winter, the scent coats you in a delicious cloud to allow you to chill, what can sound a little selfish but it's so damn good !
That's it, hope my review helps. :)

I've been testing this for 4-5 hours now, and it's strikingly different on skin than on test paper. At first spray on skin, I was a bit disappointed because I expected something savory and unique and only got sweet fig, but within 30 mins it developed into an airy, sweet/salty/woody fig and has stayed that way for hours. By contrast, the test strip smells dry, woody, and spicy, with none of the airy saltiness, and far less distinguished. I love the way it smells on my skin- fresh and tangy, sweet and spicy, familiar and mysterious, ancient and modern, all at once. Let's hope the bottle I just ordered smells the same, because it seems like reviewers below have had some very polarizing experiences with this one.

That said, regarding the "feminine body odor" rumors and comments I'd heard so much of before testing this fragrance- if your vagina smells like this fragrance, that sounds less like a problem and more like an opportunity to me.

UPDATE:
Sigh...okay. So after the testing that prompted this review some 8 months ago, I got a cold/flu, and the lingering smell of Womanity in my purse made my stomact flop whenever I smelled it for weeks thereafter. I blamed the illness for temporarily ruining the scent and didn't reach for it for awhile. I still have not worn it in the wild, because subsequent at-home wearings have gone as follows:
-First 2 hours- This is pretty nice! Fruity, woody, fresh!
-3-5 hours- hmm, this is still blaring at a pretty loud volume, as opposed to blending in with my skin.
-Hour 6- I...am kind of tired of this? (Applies oil, followed by dish soap, to spot on hand where I had applied)
-Next day- Jesus God, how did traces of Womanity, which I applied extremely sparingly to the back of my hand, get on my bra/coat/soul?
And that's when you realize you got Mugler'd again. That underneath that interesting, eternal scent of his is a secret nasty, insidious note, and it is that note that will cling to you long after you've decided you don't want it anymore. I might just have to burn that bra for reasons entirely unrelated to feminism and instead for reasons related to Womanity.

salty fig & a punch to the nose. its the only way i can describe this. honestly i don't like it, i can however see why so many people do. womanity is very unusual, it's not something you smell everyday so its definitely a head turner.

Now that the seasons have changed and it is getting warmer, I decided to give this another try and see how I feel about it. In a word: lovely. I really like this. I'm going for a full size on this one. The fig is sweet and juicy and salty. Once it develops on my skin, i get these beautiful whiffs of sweetness. I suspected that the warmer weather would make this fragrance shine and I was right. Absolutely lovely.

Oh boy I'm scared of writing this one because of all the hate and mixed feelings. Okay I'll say it: This is my favourite perfum, there.
And while I'm no fragance expert, I do enjoy and appreciate niche. That being said, I have never smelled anything that resembles this one, and if there is I'd love to know which one does, just so I have an option in case this one is ever discontinued (Just the thought of it is painful). It is the first perfume I own that I find addictive. And the composition is so simple if you think about it, its all about salty figs, thats all it is to my nose.
I cant understand how some people smell fish here. Seriously If fish smells this good, I'd wear fish every day all year round for the rest of eternity.
The only down side , which doesn't really bother me is that it changes color. The juice is supposed to be light pink. Last bottle I purhased from a 2010 batch looks yellowish. Smells perfect and lasts endlessly as usual, so I wear it like it was never pink.

PS dear readers, longevity is ridonkulus. Could smell all over neck & hair this morning after applying yesterday, transferred to the neck of my bathrobe, could smell whilst showering, and the scent was released from my hair AGAIN while blow-drying it. There is not too much development in this scent, once it gets to the watery-fig stage it stays & it stays. I had weird dreams last night- wondering if it was this perfume. Womanity might be a bit serious for me though I love it; thinking of trying eau pour elles.

What can I say except utter genius?

Ignore all the bullcrap below because there is no way this would ever smell rancid or fishy because it is so utterly FRESH and divine. I only bought a 2mL sample because I was afraid of the ridiculous reviews below (what happens when you tell people something has caviar in it and lead a satirical marketing campaign).

Anyhow, I don't even know to accurately decribe this because nothing else smells like it, it's so unique. The combination of the sweet fig that could never be cloying, and this fresh, lush ocean like scent (in a good way NOT a stinky way). And I don't know what it is but there is this earthyness to it- like dirt and leaves and vines but in such a poetic way. It smells like every good thing in nature refined down into this simple linear freshness.

Throughout it all is this lovely, new clean smell, almost like the lovely smell that new kittens and babies have. When I first sprayed it on I could smell the savoury/metallic aspect of the caviar component, it was interesting but not off-putting; and this aspect disappeared after 30 seconds anyway and all that was left was fresh fig tree growing next to the ocean. On me I don't really smell any savoury, it's just sweet in a natural way and fresh/aquatic like a gust of cold ocean breeze.

Fresh, sweet, soft, ocean-like and I honestly cannot rave about it enough. This is in the running for my signature. LOVE IT. 100 000 points!!!

Eurgh. Scrub scrub scrub. Scrub some more.
I can't even describe what this smells like, but I really dislike it and find it extremely unpleasant. It's creepy, which is odd for a perfume, but it is.
Thierry must have been having an off-day when he conjured this one up.
(Having said that and in the interests of balance, I'd love to see what it smells like on someone else, as obviously other people like it, so perhaps their chemistry is just better for it than mine. Unfortunately the opportunity hasn't presented itself and short of loitering in Boots like a weirdo, I don't think I'll get the chance, which is a pity.)

On an initial blast I get a strong fig with this one, or at least I think it’s fig, as it’s very odd, savoury is probably the best way to describe it, as many others have done here. It’s a bit too savoury for my sweet nose tastes, and I’m not a fan, so that’s a bad beginning for me. After that savoury opening it dries down to something that’s a bit nicer, a bit sweeter and I get the salt that a lot of other people here have mentioned. It’s definitely unique, but unique isn’t always a good thing. Look at that blue dislike bar. Lots of people dislike this one, and I can see why. That doesn’t mean that you will dislike it as well, just don’t blind buy, test it first and see if you like it. You might, but I don’t.

I have not tested this on my own skin but got massive whiffs of it off someone else on the weekend. If I could have glued myself to her neck without seeming rude, I would have! LOVE THIS STUFF! Salty and heady yes, fishy - nope! I've just bought 6 bottles of rather costly fragrances so this one will have to wait until the next pay cheque. I'm counting the sleeps!

EDIT: I just had to get my own EDP. It was potent on the lady whom I couldn't stop sniffing. On my skin Womanity turns into a very light aquatic summer fragrance though. It should be lovely for when our summer arrives. I would have liked it to be a bit heavier on my skin. Longevity is not bad. Overall still happy that I own my own bottle. :)

I knew this one isn't a good blind buy, so I tested samples. I sprayed it on my wrists, rubbed together, and let it nearly dry before testing the scent. It's definitely not too sweet, the citrus is refreshing without being sugary, and the caviar accord reminded me of the air in San Francisco. A salty scent of the sea but not really aquatic, if that makes any sense. I found it to be very feminine but in a mature way...not age wise but in the way of a woman who does not care to wear girly-sweet sugar but a deeper more womanly scent. I personally thought it was wonderful; unfortunately my husband did not agree and told me so (and he liked Secretions Magnifique, so he's open to the unusual), even after showering and washing my wrists off he could still smell it. I was glad though, I kept sniffing my wrists and enjoying the unique feminine quality. It has great longevity, obviously. I will wear it for myself while he is at work. Interesting fragrance, for sure.

This perfume is fantastic. I dont get fish at all, just a slight, very pleasant sweet-saltiness. I do get a lot of fig, almost 3D fig, which is delicious and fresh. Ive been wearing it a lot this spring and it is quickly becoming one of my favourites. Dont be afraid to give it a try, dont be afraid of the caviar and all those false allegations that it smells of genitalia.

After reading all the disconcerting reviews and seeing the scary long blue dislike bar, I had no interest in trying Womanity. Not to mention the frightful bottle. With remarks about it smelling like fish and female parts and yeasty bread, who wouldn't be afraid?

Well, while feeling like a daredevil recently I decided to put on my snorkel gear and give it a try......and.....where's the fish? The yeasty bread? The nether regions??

All I get is a fresh and beautiful creamy fig bomb! I love it! It is crisp and lively and smells like green leafy fig leaves in a fresh ocean breeze. To me it is even a little effervescent and very ladylike....some pink florals slipping into the fig bush.

It leaves me wondering if it is the fig that is unpleasant to some. I am used to fig and have been wearing fig fragrances for years and this is one of the most pleasant and wearable ones I have found. It is utterly delightful!

The word "savory" would never come to my mind had it not been used in marketing materials and then by reviewers. My idea of "savory" must be quite different than others. I think of some type of stew or something simmering in a skillet when I hear the word savory and this is nothing of the sort. It just smells like fresh, creamy beautiful figs, some woody notes, green fig leaves and light pink flowers in a crisp waterfront breeze. Wonderful warm weather fragrance and the least scary "scary" perfume I have ever tried.

Ah, Mugler.... you create such controversial fragrances.

First of all, most of the bottles available in the $26.99 range at the discount stores are Womanity Eau Pour Elles. That is not the original Womanity. There may be some bottles of Womanity EDP floating around the discount stores, but most that I have heard about are the Eau Pour Elles version, which is different from the original.

This review is for Womanity EDP spray. Here we go...

Womanity is a smart fragrance. She wears pink, but she understands the stereotype. She is tall and proud and refined.

Almost a concept fragrance, she dares to break new ground with her intensity and savory/sweet contrasts. Someone compared Womanity to Reveal for women by Calvin Klein. Okay, as far as the woods and salt go, yes, there is a similarity. Not a very strong one, though. Reveal is much softer and just has a different heart.

Womanity is fish-free. I think the mention of caviar throws people off or primes them to think of fish when they smell the fragrance. No, I think caviar is manifested here in Womanity via a crumbling white crystal sea salt or a wind coming in over the cold sea. Then there's the sweet dried split open fig and shavings of precious woods.

This isn't just a fragrance; it's a statement. Womanity will test your courage and your senses. It continues to evolve after an hour on my skin. It has good projection and very good staying power (will last all day if properly applied).

It softens and sweetens as time goes on. I smell it after one hour (still intense and sparking with contrast). After that, it mellows somewhat. You get more of the rich fig: fig wood, fig fruit, fig leaves... all the layers of the fig's existence. But there's still that salty air coming in off the sea.

Really interesting. The Dali painting of my perfume collection for sure...

I tried this today when I saw it at TJ Maxx for 29.99. I sprayed it on my 14 year old daughter, having an open mind, wanting to add this to my collection. All I could smell was saliva. Like salty dried saliva, and not in a good way. I also kept smelling her to see if it changed, and it didn't. She didn't care for it either.

This can't miss from any woman's collection , be aware that it's strong as hell , but after all we wanna be noticed and sniffed :))) , right ? Can get sour , has nothing sweet , I love it even if it's not my basic line style , gotta test before you buy definitely , you're gonna love it or you're gonna dislike it from the first smell , nothing changes , it is what it is , fabulous ! In plus you can get a ring out of the top of the bottle once you're done with it and actually wear it like I do :))))!

I do love the scent, and it may be the most interesting fragrance I've ever smelled. I like the savory opening with only a hint of sweetness. At first it is totally edible, but after it settles I can smell something sharp and soapy, which does not make Womanity a bad scent, but it's a little sad for me that the whole "savory" concept goes away. I guess, it would not even smell like a perfume without this clean note, so I'm okay with it. Yes, I understand the comparison with woman body, and it does not offend me (what's so bad about a woman's body?). So I get the concept and approve of it.
What I don't like: 1. The perfume is oily. Perhaps it's the reason of longevity, which is great, but I'm worried it can stain clothes. 2. The name is weird, but tolerable. 3. Bottle and color. I don't think they match the scent. But actually I dislike all Thierry Mugler perfume bottles. I'd never blind buy anything that looks like this. 4. The lack of versatility. It is dangerous to wear outside home, because so many people hate it.

Wow is this ever a polarizing scent. You either love it or hate it...no middle ground. I have a love/hate relationship with Thierry Mugler fragrances. This is a love for me. It works really well with my chemistry and smells sultry and fresh and spicy and just different. No fish or "secretions" here...lol. This is not a safe blind buy by any means. Its strong and lasts all day and night on me. And it smells like nothing else out there.

I tried this today, looking for a new fragrance. I hated it inmediately because it was so strong and strange in my skin. But about fifteen minutes later, oh miracle, it became gorgeus! I just can´t identify what the note is, sort of sweet&spicy but I just LOVE it.
Maybe it has been a mirage, I keep sniffing my hand trying to retain the scent... second chance tomorrow!

This is unisex to me. My girlfriend and I both wear it. Despite the pink bottle and name, this is easily worn by either gender. I think it leans a little more on the masculine side, but that's sexy on a woman because it's unexpected. I bought my girlfriend a bottle and a mini for myself. The liquid inside turns yellow with age anyway so if you're not a fan of pink, buy an older bottle. The older smell just the same. Same 12+ hours of wear and obnoxiously great silage.

Oh WOW! and I don't mean that in a good way. This is by far the WORST smelling frag I have had the displeasure of smelling in a long time! I could actually smell this after scrubbing and showering and I did not want to. I can't even describe the smell. I can only say that my nose HATED it and I never want to smell it again. Odd that my favorite fragrance is Alien lol. I must say I am happy that I found someone who loves it to give it to because I blind bought the gift set and I hate to see something go to waste.

Womanity was my 1st encounter with this house and I felt in love with it the moment I smelled it back in 2010 but I didn't have the budget for it since I was a student. But now, can't wait the opportunity to get this beauty with a smell that's really unique, feminine & sexy.

Not even a smige of sweet or fruit. It's all earth and shady ground with salt blowing in from the sea. I was expecting hints of wood and maybe a tinge of sugar from dried figs my gramma would use sometimes-- both no. I can see where this would appeal to those who love organic, natural, fresh of the ground and undergrowth smell. I need some wood or floral. I bought a purse size with refill, a shower gel and set that had a 1.7 ox. bottle and milk balm, but I will only keep the miniature and refill and send the rest back as I will only wear this scent very occasionally, just not me, too subdued and shady for me. Would make a nice bath salt, kind of relaxing. I don't find it the horror some have mentioned, nor the extacy. It's thick, shady trees by the ocean with a definite tang. I bet tons of people find this very relaxing.

Edit: well, I kept all and glad I did. Now that it's getting warmer here in Michigan, it's appealing to me more. I think I needed to broaden my scent horizons

I can't say for sure if it's a caviar note, to me it smells more like the salty sea water with seaweeds, corals, shells, sand and mermaids, a ripe sweet fig, and a few leaves left to cover up the nudity...Brought altogether to satisfy the cravings for femininity. When I first sniffed it, my reaction was: OMG !!! AN OLPHACTIVE ORGASM!!!

Womanity (what?) opens with salty aldehydes scented with anise, a metallic-gassy cloud with a shade of sky blue. Angular, cold, azure, salty and sweetish at the same time, but most of all annoyingly harsh, chemical, quite suffocating honestly. Plus, it lacks in any texture or whatever interest, as it’s basically a sort of anise pancake frosted into some industrial freezing gas. And a faint hint of ginger and cinnamon. “Female secretions”? If you date refrigerators, maybe. Obnoxious if you ask me, but if you are into niche, this same kind of nonsense sometimes manages to be sold as “avantgarde”, so... who knows. For me, a huge “no” whatever side I watch it from.

I was intrigued by this so I blindly bought it. Oh man! This is all spice on my skin. Its salty and Pepper with some sort of fruit in the background maybe watermelon? It is not unpleasant, but not something I want to wear all day. It does not work well with my skin. But, its really weird because I crave the smell every once in while so I keep it.

To the reviewer below:

No darling, it isn't marketing. They used a new technology known as 'molecular extraction' which allows them to extract the fragrance from absolutely anything, whether it be caviar, figs or even something absurd like popcorn. Obviously if you ask someone if you smell of caviar or figs they're going to say no, because both are quite uncommon and both are food items that you don't typically smell. Other than that, I do agree with you that it is a remarkably beautiful scent like no other.

The caviar smell is marketing. A metaphore for the saltiness.

When I put Womanity on and asked my dear boyfriend (who has smelled dozens and dozens of perfumes on me) what he thought he smelled, this was his answer: "It smells like cinnamon!"

Not one single person I have asked has said "caviar" nor have they said "figs."
Those are perfumery terms, but that is not what people smell in reality.
"A sweet mens cologne," "cinnamon," and "strawberries"(not the flanker, the original one) are what people have said.

I love the perfume. This is what I smell: sparkling fruitiness, old school masculine cologne, a metallic accord, some salt and something that may be the aromachemical that smells like synthetic figs. Lovely!

Edit: To Boudoir above: Thank you! I learned something new from you.

SPOILER ALERT!

This smells EXACTLY like Mrs. Meyer's Honeysuckle cleaning products. One of my favorite Mrs. Meyer's scents, (I have the dish soap, all purpose cleaner and laundry detergent) - but now I know why Womanity struck me as so clean and not particularly special. I was cleaning my house and was really perplexed, as I've been sniffing Womanity a lot lately (but not wearing it) and was definitely getting whiffs of it, how did it get on my clothes? Once I realized it was the Mrs. Meyer's, I did a spray test on each wrist and WOW, they are pretty darn close. I might even like the Mrs. Meyer's a little better. Oh well. :(

Okay, I feel like all these FISHY comments are mental, maybe a placebo? They definitely are not the perfume. When I first asked someone to smell it, they really liked it. When I told them it had a caviar note, they though it was interesting. I asked them how they liked it the next time I wore it but I told them about the caviar note beforehand, which was then they told me "It smells like a perfume vagina." Rightttt! Maybe body chemistry can effect the saltyness more or less but I refuse to believe this becomes a fishy smell on most people.

The caviar adds a salty note, which I think is why it smells savory. Initially it smells like sweet and salty fig, fig leaf and woody. Not everyone likes it at first but it mellows into a nice fig scent, not too sweet, that is not offensive at all. It almost reminds me of real raspberries, not artificial taste or smell. I would like to add a bottle to my collection, it really is unique.

I tried the sample of Womanity with some trepidation after seeing so many coments about how strange it is, but my fears were groundless. Womanity is a lovely brisk fresh scent, reminding me of crushed green leaves and the salt air on a rocky coast. The caviar note isn't off-putting at all, nor is it "fishy." It's tangy and breezy. I love this perfume.

I got a sample of this fragrance earlier. I have been wearing it for a few hours now. I honestly don't know if i love it or hate it. when you first put it on you get a good sense of the fig and the caviar. Then it begins to exude this strange saltiness. Its not A strong fragrance. And i keep getting alternating whifs of figs (which i adore) and this odd salty smell. It is very organic smelling to me like the way my hair smells after drying in the sun after a dip in the ocean. The jury is still out on this one for me.

I am probably one of the biggest fans for Thierry Mugler fragances. I have a very large collection. With that said I have purchased several bottles of Angel and Alien for gifts to my mother, sister, friends, etc. I tried womanity a few weeks back because I was shopping around for my sister's birthday and my mother's birthday coming up and not to mention Valentine's day. Needless to say I give out a Thierry Mugler perfume as gift every single chance I get.

Best way to describe the scent is that it is extremely unique like all Mugler fragrances. I picture a woman running barefoot with a wavy white dress on the beach in slow motion...Fresh, sweet, dreamy....

The sad thing is that I bought 4 gift sets to give away to family and I had my sister and mom smell it and didn't care much for it. So if anyone wants them let me know.... I have a couple of the Taste of fragrance version too.

I can only review this on the one person I know wears it. It smells AMAZING on her. Sea breeze, holidays, coconut (!), aqua....just amazing. One day I will pluck up courage to try it but fear my temperamental body chemistry wont work with it.

Edited to say, tried it. It is a scrubber on me as I feared. Just doesn't like my skin, but delicious on others. Thankfully the Elles flanker works well on me.

I guarantee you that all of these idiots claiming that this fragrance is disgusting or that it somehow manages to smell like fish or female genitalia have never tested this fragrance on their skin. Of course a fragrance with CAVIAR as a note will smell odd on paper. This fragrance truly is beautiful, spray it on your skin and give it a damn chance, or stop being so rude.

Five years after its release, I feel Womanity's time has come. When it came out, everyone was either underwhelmed that it wasn't as weird as the brief made it sound or thought it was fishy and repellent. I love the bizarre, humorous marketing and bottle that no one knew what to make of; in the 80s Mugler's (and Claude Montana's) designs were considered misogynous and unwearable, classic cases of homosexuals using the fashion industry to bind and enslave women, therefore it's a scream that he rolled out this fragrance with a satirical marketing campaign that parodies modern body-positive feminist self-help rhetoric. Remember the kooky website where women were supposed to connect with women and talk about the unshakable threads of Womanity stretching across the world? On top of this, the juice is pink (symbol of frou frou conventional femininity), evokes vagina stank with a nice salty oily Secretions-lite accord, and is topped with a terrifying metallic Geiger mask that brings to mind the cover of Naomi Wolf's The Beauty Myth, held on with a chain. The fragrance itself is sporty and fresh and highly wearable while also being ashy and gray and somewhat staid. This is high art; this is satire; this is a true transgressive statement done in the capitalist mainstream.

From reading the reviews I'm guessing this one is extremly dependent on skin chemistry. The following is based on my own.

To me (that have never had many figs or figtrees around to know how they smell) this one translates to something like freshly cut or crushed plants. Like a pile of green, young, perhaps slightly woody shoots, a smell of gardening and summer. I barely get any salt or sweetness, these notes blend in like a natural part of the sap I imagine this fragrance could double for.

A fresh scent without citrus, utterly unobtrusive. Don't know if it is love exactly, but I think "Womanity" (Yes, it's a really silly name, and a really silly bottle) and I can at least be summer friends.

My very favorite customer service rep sent me a small splash bottle of this and I LOVE it! It is not girly. This is straight woman. It's not trying to be sexy or sophisticated even. This is what a grown woman should smell like during the day to me. It's got quite a bit of spice and salt and is almost oceanic in the smell. Tiny bit floraly but not really that fruity (probably the fig). A bit of musk and the tiniest bit of sugar. Apparently my husband finds this scent unbearably sexy. Every time I put it on I end up getting his nose gliding along my neck so he can smell it closer and goes "Baby you smell amazing..."

I love fig, so I thought I would try this. I bought two small sample vials from eBay. Well, it's not horrible per se, but I don't like it. It gives off a "sporty" tone to me, like Cool Water for Women. Too bag. I LOVE Alien, so I was hoping for another Mugler hit. Too bad it was a miss :(

When it first came out I used to love it, now I find it too sweet.
It's fruity kind of sweetness that I find cloying.
It's a pity because I really like all the rest, the salty, marine note and the green note of figue leaves, the sillage, it lasts forever on clothes, it's just the fruity note that annoys me.

While I admit to being a fan of Thierry Mugler fragrances, there are actually very few that I would buy. Most of them are just too situation-dependent for me to justify the cost; others are lovely, but not unique enough for me to want a bottle. But I have no problem owning a bottle of Womanity. Despite the simplicity of its note list (a fig tree with some caviar tossed on it), I find this to be a truly beautiful, interesting, and one-of-a-kind fragrance.

When I first spritz this perfume, I get all of the notes at once. After several minutes, the fig leaves fade in to the background, and the juicier, slightly sweeter fig fruit comes to the foreground. The fig seems to add "texture" to this fragrance, if that makes sense: it's not overpowering or cloying, just velvety and smooth. Omnipresent in this fragrance is the caviar, which is never fishy on my skin, just salty and vaguely oceanic.

The best way I can describe it? This is sort of how I smell after I step out of the ocean and take a quick rinse in an outdoor shower, leaving just a trace of salt and sweetness from the water on my skin.

Part of what nurtures this impression is the sillage on this perfume, which is quite moderate. Unless you're a very heavy spritzer, this perfume is going to soften up after about an hour and sit close to your skin. The wear-time is about 8 hours for me.

The moderate longevity and sillage, combined with the simple beauty of this fragrance, make me think it's ideal for daytime wear, especially in the summer. You could use this year-round, of course, but the fact that it reminds me of the beach just SCREAMS summer to me. I tend to prefer warmer, heavier smells for night time wear.

My one bone of contention? Although the bottle design is neat (if a little 80s), the atomizer on the larger bottles is hard to control. I'm a dainty spritzer, and I often prefer to do half-sprays. Womanity doesn't really give me that option; I HAVE to do a full spray, and it sprays a LOT. So I either use a decant to dab this on, or I spritz and walk through the spray.

I bought this out of complete morbid curiosity. I happen to love most of Thierry Mugler's creations but when reading the reviews of Womanity I thought maybe he had gone too far off the beaten path.

My first spray was completely surprising. A blast of pink peppercorns and lemonade? Something a bit sharp, something a bit green/floral, fresh laundry, and a splash of ozone.... Fast forward a minute and the juiciest ripest fig comes out to play... With a dash of sea salt to enhance its sweetness. Even though the notes don't make sense to me at first, they settle down and blend beautifully.

This juice is intriguing and multifaceted....fresh, zippy, sweet, savory, ripe, and feminine. It reminds me of laying on a soft freshly laundered blanket atop the whitest sandy beach, with the fresh air and salty water breezing through my locks as I bite into the most delicious fig imaginable. The balance between sweet and savory is what makes it memorable.

It is absolutely delightful, and not the least bit "fishy".

I can't figure out if I am smelling a different perfume than most people reviewed or if maybe this fragrance is one that is completely unique to a person's body chemistry.

Either way, I can't stop sniffing my arm and Thierry Mugler has done it again.

Heaven.

I love 90% of this scent... I swoon especially for fig, salt, ozone, and that almost cloying sweetness. However, it's just way to metallic for me. I think this is probably what a lot of people are getting the fish scent from - I don't get fish, just a sharp metal smell reminiscent of zippers or keys or something. and it is far too prominent to ignore, and lasts the longevity of the perfume. It's a shame! I've tried it so many times hoping that note would calm the eff down, no luck.

I do like CK Reveal as an alternative, but I miss the fig, and CK Reveal lacks the balance to avoid becoming too cloying.

Great fragrance, I have third bottle, it's almost miracle to have bottle of the same fragrance more than twice :) During summertime it smells like crystalic clean, just washed clothes. In autumn it changes into some smoke and wood and in winter it's all together. During summer I usually get the most compliments and many questions, what kind of miraculous perfume I wear :) But the biggest miracle with this fragrance is bodychemistry, I think.

I have a tiny 5ML spray sample of this, and so often I make the mistake of reading the reviews before wearing it. I hesitate to wear it because it gets so many dislikes, but once I do I think, "Why did I hesitate? This is amazing!!" I honestly have no clue where so many people get the fishy note from. I can't help but think that most people just think they're smelling fish because they expect it, but I just get bright, vibrant juicy figs mixed with salty air. Believe me, I smell fish on a daily basis living in Indonesia where fish is a popular staple in most of their diets, and I only wish fish smelled this good. I love perfumes that can take me on an exotic journey, and this one and Hermes Après La Mousson do just that. I've never been to the Mediterranean before, but every time I wear Womanity, that's where my imagination takes me ...on a beautiful beach, lying on the sand under a fig tree. Thierry Mugler is a genius. Many props to him for actually creating something original instead of playing it safe and creating something that's been done many times before :)

I tried this one out of morbid curiosity after reading a review mentioning a "cloud of fishiness".

I was carrying something in my other hand so I only had the right hand to spray this on a tester- deliberately not spraying on my skin, however I fumbled and I got this on my hand.

The first few minutes of this was a kind of salty fish and unwashed skin smell. I was delighted to confirm that this is indeed a strange perfume but also repelled from the odor. I didn't have anytime to wash my hands in the mall so I let it sit there. The fishy smell wore off and it started to smell savoury, salty and metallic. I'm still not sure about why someone would wear this on their body, but the dry down wasn't entirely offensive. It wasn't a scrubber.

This is the most eccentric perfume I've smelled so far. I think fig leaf smells like poison. This is something you shouldn't wear on first date for sure.
I guess I couldn't spray it on myself. At least thank god I didn't!!
I understand, that it's widely recognized, but I can't imagine an occasion for wearing it.
Also, when I once tried a raw fig, it didn't smell or taste like anything. but this perfume definitely smells. It smells like poison mixed with dirt.

I've been curious about Womanity for a while and I was afraid of testing it because what I got from the reviews is that it's fishy, disgusting and salty.

What a surprise! This isn't as offensive as people made it out to be. I wasn't sure about Figs and Caviar but I know for sure this doesn't smell like fish, salty sea water etc. It's actually a nice balance of salty and sweet. It stay a long time with pretty good sillage.

Figs are there, they add a little fruity sweetness. Everything blends well and what you get is nice, salty-sweet scent that feels more natural like a skin scent and not a perfume. This will be my summer fragrance for sure.

Another great creation from Thierry Mugler. You gotta give it to him, he's a genius in perfumery!

Thierry Mugler, as much as I admire your tenacity and eccentricity, Womanity is another one of your fragrances I've filed away under 'appreciate conceptually but wouldn't wear'. Womanity reminded me (a bit too literally) of 'the essence of a woman', if you know what I mean! This perfume in one word: unique. And signature scent worthy if your chemistry is compatible!

In the vial this perfume smelt very citrusy with an unusual salty twist. I guess an entire fig tree in a bottle smells lemony to my nose...

On my skin, Womanity at first seemed quite citrusy (but a pleasant citrus - not too harsh!) before my skin sucked it all up and spat back something very watery and salty which reminded me of the seaside (caviar is such a random note) which eventually faded into an green, aquatic freshness.

Overall it was very anti-climatic and not as sweet as what I was expecting. I have the feeling that all the other notes crowded out the faint sweetness of the figs for me. And the savoury notes were not very enjoyable... sorry! Oh well, all the more power to you perfumistas out there who can rock this scent!

When I smelled this in the summer, I said "meh" and moved on, HOWEVER, now it's -10C this perfume is like a delicious and warming "winter watermelon" on my skin and I love it, not to mention, that I literally get stopped in the street and asked what enchanting fragrance I'm wearing...haven't had this much fun/feedback from a fragrance in years ;)

It settles down, but at first is a sharp blast of sour and salty notes that smell damp and ever so slightly mouldy. I think this is a unisex scent as it is strong and a bit woodsy. I am not sure I like it for me, as the fig is overpowering, but the unique aroma has to be praised. I do like Mugler's strange combinations, you either love them or you don't.

Womanity is a perfume i was looking for many years. Still don't get why i passed by it for so long. Usually i have trouble with most fresh perfumes, because citrus fly away from my dry skin quickly and all i feel is musk instead of expected freshness. Thierry Mugler has done perfume for me! It stays fresh, cold and perfect all day long. I would shelf it next to J'adore and L'eau D'Issey. Smells like ocean and vacation. Love it!

I can't wait until next Thursday! I HAVE to share this with my Muglerians! I don't know if anyone has ever been to one before, but Mugler in Toronto at Hudson's Bay by the Eaton Centre is having a celestial event, which is basically an exclusive event they do each year before Christmas. Wine, food, pampering, tons of gifts, exclusives I never find anywhere else, you name it and they deliver! Just to give you an idea, I'm buying all my stuff that I need and they're giving me a 35ml Angel for free, Mugler tote bag, free full size Womanity shower gel and some other stuff that I can't remember. I'm betting on the books that I'm going to win the Mugler handbag that they have as a prize, but I'll settle for the stay at the trump hotel that they're also raffling off. :P I can't WAIT! If anyone wants in on this, call them! Ask for Stevan or Genevieve, they're the best and know their stuff. Honestly, they have the best team there that I've ever come across. Winning combo; shower gel, hair mist and body cream; I don't even have to use the perfume and it lasts all day for me. If you want to get in touch with them, they're number is 14168616732. I just wish they brought the beauty back, I loved their lipstick.

Citrus, jammy fig, skin salted by the sun and sea water, woodiness, and something tart in the background, like an unripe mango. Incredibly sexy. I get it: the fragrance, the name - this is the essence of female sexuality.

This is a very intriguing scent, indeed. I understand why it has such mixed reviews and why many people hate it. It's unexpected and slightly offensive to smell something like this from a perfume bottle. It might be an acquired taste, just like caviar itself. I received this as a sample and without knowing the fragrance notes, I was expecting to dislike it. For me, this fragrance conjures up the image of going on a couple's camping trip in the woods during the most sweltering, humid days of summer, eating citrus and fresh figs, and having passionate sex (forgive me, but fragrances are difficult enough to describe without mincing words). The brininess of the caviar gives it a sweaty, pungent, animalistic quality, without smelling dirty.

Unfortunately, the last time I sampled this, there was an accord in the dry down that reminded me too much of Secretions Magnifiques, and I have not revisited since. Despite that reminder, I personally love this fragrance and think it's a modern masterpiece.

"Thou shall hev a fishy on a little dishy,
Thou shall hev a fishy when the boat comes in."

There is something intriguing about this scent, but it repels as much as it attracts me. I love fig in perfumes, but there's a reason why so many people have mentioned fish. That's because it smells a bit like fish. If you enjoy wearing this, brilliant, but personally I don't want to whiff like sweetened kippers.

A girl who worked briefly at a café in my office building wore this, and it smelled strongly pineapple/tropical on her, slightly powdery. It was bright and alluring and fresh.

I've never really tried it on as every time I spray it on the card it's way too strong and makes my cringe. Maybe one day.

I think for me, the best fig out there is Premier Figuier, which is why I don't tend to stray towards other fig fragrances. It's so much classier and tamed than this.

Reveal is a lot less confronting, and still in the same vein. Lingers in clothes for days.

Womanity smells like ocean in the morning and wet hair of young woman, maybe surfer, who just got out of water. It's slightly salty and fresh, very feminine but something in it just bothers me. It's nice scent but not for me.

Fig leaf and fish on my skin, I imagine Womanity accurately recreates the aroma of Eve's vagina. (Didn't they wear fig leaves in The Garden of Eden?) Perhaps, this is why we have feminine odor products named Summer's Eve. In any case, I won't go so far as to say it smells like BV, as some others have claimed, but there is a slightly vaginal smell, a bit gamey, due for a shower. And fig, in all its forms, tends to smell dirty on me. This fragrance just doesn't work for me, but it is unique, and I can imagine how it could work on others.

Caviar comes across on me as delectable creamy, buttery ,salty and oceanic treat. Fig comes across as syrupy, powdery, savory/sweet. Fig leaf as a smooth slightly powdery note. Fig tree is warm, sexy, cozy and down to earth seductive. Womanity is soft but lingeringly sexy.Best skin tried when healthy :)

I naturally overproduce pheromones.That is a curse when I'm ill, as it destroys how perfumes react on me and subsequently can make any perfume a foul grenade of disgust inducing filth.That said, when healthy every note shines in every decently balanced perfume.

I absolutely love this fragrance but hate the name. I don't find it especially feminine either. Some men could get away with it, I think. On me, the fig note disappears almost immediately, which is fortunate as this sweet note is the only side of Womanity that I dislike. The musk and the caviar notes stay for hours and I find myself sniffing my clothes all the time. I just can't stay away, this fragrance is absolutely unique.

I love Womanity. I bought a small sample vial and after wearing it for the first time, I felt like I had to have the full bottle.

My favourite part of this scent is the deep, briny ocean smell, which reminds me of sun-warmed and salty skin after a long and healing swim in the sea. I also get lots of fig, one of my favourite scents. It's not just the fruit though, it's the whole tree, leaves and all. This scent is a lovely balance between sweet and savoury - I can't keep my nose away from my wrist when I wear it.

I find the sillage is medium-strong and it is long lasting on my skin.

blind buy...I am surprised, I find it very pleasant. I decided to buy it because of the many comparisons with Reveal which I happen to really like. There's a resemblance but not a real similarity with Reveal, let's say they are not sister fragrances, but cousins, if it makes sense. It is very feminine in a very unique way, I never smelled anything similar. I can see why many say it could be easily worn by men, but I think womanity leans more on the ladies side. If you are interested in buying or trying womanity go for it, it is now very reasonably priced by web retailers and I am actually really happy I took the chance despite the numerous negative reviews. I don't find it offensive in any way, no fish, no meat, no mustiness here...just a lovely scent of clean,crispy salty air with a very tolerable sweet underlay.

I don't find Womanity to be the least little bit weird. The opening is juicy fig, the middle remains sweet, slightly musky fig and just enough fig leaf to keep it fresh, and if the caviar is there, it just comes across as interestingly salty. Nothing fishy here (I feel the need to add that a woman's special parts are not supposed to smell "fishy" at all-- if they do, that is a sign of bacterial vaginitis and she should see her doctor right away). Nope, no BV here, thank God! Just a pleasantly fleshy, fresh, fruity, slightly salty skin-like yumminess. I suspect seeing that 'caviar' note listed is coloring some people's thoughts on this one, before they allow themselves to just enjoy it with an open mind. It's quite delicious, really...I actually kinda love it.

I was scared to try this one and I was absolutely sure I was not going to like it based on the reviews. But I love it so much and I can't understand where all the hate is coming from. I can understand not loving it or maybe being underwhelmed by it, but I don't think it is as outrageous as one would think reading the reviews.

If you are trying this, let it settle on the skin for a little while, as the first minute is strange, alright. Also, it's much more pleasant in the air, than if you sniff your skin up close. When it settles it becomes a clean, dry and comforting fragrance that reminds me a bit of laundry in a good way. It could be worn on the beach on a warm summer day or cuddled up in a blanket on a cold day. I think its a fragrance for any occasion. This might be a good warm weather scent for people that usually like more winter and fall fragrances like me.

EDIT: ok change of mind. Sometimes it is too metallic and waay to salty, sometimes its perfect. I'm so dissapointed, I though I had found my fig-soulmate. I don't know what it is, maybe if they had dropped the caviar? I will be looking for another fig fragrance as I REALLY enjoy the fig in this when it's right.

Aaah Womanity... What a strange little perfume. Or maybe big perfume. But my bottle is tiny.
When I first tried Womanity, being infatuated with warm, hot, radiant Alien, I absolutely hated it. I thought it was cold en metallic, and I hated the green notes of figleaf in it. The longer I think about it, the more I'm certain I tried Womanity in winter. I also just wasn't "mature" enough, be it in age or taste in perfume.
It is Octobre while I'm writing this and though it is no longer summer, it's still quite warm here, and Womanity blooms.
A bright citrus opening, transforming into a gorgeous mix of softly sweet milky figs, salty seabreeze, green figleaves and woods. A summery scent that is by no means sweet, playful or girly, but deeply mysterious, sultry (without being dark) and almost a tad melancholy.
Like many have said before, it smells like an evening in summer near the sea in the Mediterranean.

I'm so happy to have found a Mugler fragrance to love, now that my love for Alien has died down to an ember of its former blaze. I still don't really like the bottle, but mine is the small 30 ml (why buy a bigger size if you can refill it), with the face and ornaments in glass instead of metal and that one isn't half bad.

Despite all of the bad reviews I decided to have Womanity and it was my first blind buy. I am absolutely happy with this purchase. Womanity starts a bit too metalic but in a few minutes it transforms into something amazingly feminine and light like the sea breeze. I can feel the figs and the fig leafs. I can feel the smell of the Greek sea - refreshing, a bit salty, a bit sweet and absolutely relaxing. This will my memory of summer.

This has to be the most dramatic Thierry Mugler fragrance. It's weird, crazy, loud, foulmouthed and most importantly bipolar!

It starts out with a very salty marine accord rich in well... Sea accords and Fig! Who knew fig and the sea works in that odd way together. The sea note here is not your typical sea note that you can find in the "Aqua" scents. It's more animalic and sharp... A little nauseating!

The drydown transforms this crazy mixed top into a creamy, still salty base. This one is less crazy, more comfortable and much more tolerable.

That's why for me this fragrance is bipolar! It starts out with rage and dries into a composed and collected woman.

You look at the notes and you automatically , instantly , naturally .... say, I want to smell
This.

It doesn't smell fishy. It doesn't smell like a 'specific'... Perfumed female body part. It smells like a perfume made my Thierry Mugler.

So wonderfully weird.

Yet, like all of his creations ,it's off my want list since it's a scent
I'd get sick of really fast.

YET, it IS a fragrance to try.

So weirdly pleasant. Now I understand the meaning of 'salty'.

I picked up a pack of Mugler travel sizes because I've been dying to try this and Angel, and I am so glad I did.

I can understand why this is a divisive frag, but for me its divine and SO unique. I don't get overwhelming 'meatiness' or fish, just slightly pungent salty-sweetness. I find it addictive, and will most definitely be investing in a full size of this.

On me this is rich, dense, very salty, sweet with a slight hint of fish (the caviar note I presume). The first day I tried this I was amazed by the quality, the pungence. When testing several other fragrances, some quite a bit cheaper, this is certainly in a class of its' own. I decided to purchase it, I was amazed by what I remembered as a sweet fig smell of intense quality layered with a salty air accord. It's uniqueness prompted my purchase also. I will wear it occasionally I thought.

When I wear this now away from the allure of the perfume counter and a day spent shopping I find it too much. I'm not completely sure I like it as a perfume. It's density makes me feel suffocated in this temporate (and still unusally warm for this time of year) climate. There is no freshness and no beautiful floral scent on me. Just heavy salty/sweet fig and fish. Lasting power is of course excellent also adding to the suffocation factor. I only spray once and I can't get away from it. Yes I have a love/hate relationship with it. This smells better the next day (I can still smell it) but it's softened quite a bit. In a sense it makes me feel like I havn't washed when I wear it, should I embrace this or go back to my comfort zone?

All in all I think it is a beautiful thing, a master piece and I want to own it as a piece of art. Unfortunatly I don't want to wear it. I can't get over wanting to smell somewhat fresh or floral, spicy even. I agree with one of the comments below I would prefer it as a candle or some such. I'm not sure the world is ready for 'Womanity' lol, I will go back to my 'Angel' instead.

Tried this when it first came out and it had zero impact on me. Positive or negative.

Tried it yesterday first on paper. Intrigued. Rushed back tried it on my skin. HAD to have it. Went back a few hours later and purchased the largest bottle I could find (which happened to come with a 200ml bottle of the cream as a gift). I can’t recall EVER doing this before. Being so completely intrigued that I had to buy it that day.

It is unlike anything else I know. Has been beautifully described by other reviewers - "The scent of the slightly burnt skin from the long hours under the sun,a little dry from the sea water,kissed by the sea breeze that carries the smell of fig trees and the burning hot sand,with just a touch of the sun tan oil,she had applied hours ago...It's a perfume with a soul,alive and kicking!” YES. Exactly.

I too keep getting whiffs of something lovely - it takes a moment to register - Oh, that’s me!

I had almost forgotten about Mugler sillage! These days everything hovers so close to the skin that it is such a treat to wear something that lasts and that projects. And that I don’t need to reapply in 3 hours.

I’m excited to embark on a new journey with this perfume.

And lastly, to all the reviewers whose vaginas supposedly smell like this — well aren’t you lucky!! :)

I'm a man and find this scent quite enjoyable,

It reminds me walking near the sea in a cloudy day and the winds brings the saltiness to your nose. But at the opening I also feel something sweet.

Here I take back my previous review on this one.

After years of avoidong Womanity I decided to give it a try again, this time not only on paper, but on skin as well - and after the alcohol went away, I was disappointed with myself for dismissing Womanity earlier, only after a short smelling on paper.

It smells like fig, milky, sweet figs salted by sea and/or caviar, and I get a strong woody note, and something else that brings hazelnut to my mind.

This fragrance is complex. It is different. I actually use the body wash and lotion and not the spray fragrance. It sits close to my skin but can be smelled when I walk buy someone. It is warm and fresh at the same time. My favorite foods are sweet and savory so maybe this is why this scent attracted me. It is like warm sunshine on a crisp fall day. It is earthy, clean, sweet, and fresh all in one.

Sometimes I get a whiff of notes unexpectedly. Yesterday while walking back to our living room, I smelled clean salty air. It was weird because those two notes seemed separated from the earthy sweet notes actually on my skin.

The reviews demonstrate it is not for everyone (what perfume is?). It is powerful and could be easily applied to heavily. I would recommend a sample to try to see if body chemistry works with it. If the spray fragrance is too strong, try the lotion or body wash. It makes it more of a personal scent and less likely to offend anyone.

I usually get bored with fragrances and always want to switch and find the next one. This may become a sig scent since it has the complexity to keep me guessing.

this fragrance is to be sprayed on your arm not rubbed and let it sit for a good 15min. Then you 'll know if it suits your chemistry. This is he way I get the sale done. My Beauty advisers most of them don't really like the fragrance. but hey like it on me. So does most friends and family.

I don't remember this being fishy, rather awfully peppery (especially red and white pepper) and a bit meaty - just as if someone had prepared loads of steaks and instead of frying them, put them in a sunny kitchen with locked windows and sprayed a lot of beautiful, sweet fig perfume all over the kitchen and left it all there for an hour or so. The meat is not bad (yet) but it's becoming more and more predominant with every single sniff.
Take away the meat, open the windows, spray the figs again and I'll be your fan, Mr Mugler!

LOVE! I was looking all over for a great beachy scent. I just received this in the mail today, wearing it now....I really don't understand why this is so controversial, it smells so GOOD!! I literally can not stop smelling my wrist, and it lasts for hours and hours..even after my shower I could still smell it on my skin.

Plant a fig tree on a beach and sit under it and this is what you smell, it's magical. It takes me to this amazing peaceful setting in the sand, I love it!
Its lightly sweet of figs in the beginning, settles into an organic, aquatic, delicate, sexy, savory, breezy scent, i feel like a mermaid, just stepped out of the ocean, like the scene from the movie Splash lol.

It's a mature fragrance and I love that it has a slight sweet element without smelling like a candy store. I would say this is a fragrance best suited for the 25+ age range.

I'm getting NONE of the "fishy" smell that people talk about...I wonder if they have a pre-notion they will get fishy based on the caviar note. I get some salt, but it's very light and breezy and comfortable. Due to contrary believe, many caviars don't smell real fishy. I have some lumpfish caviar in my fridge right now and it smells salty, fresh, lightly sweet and like the beach. This is what I get from Womanity but better and it works beautifully with my chemistry.

And the bottle! I can't say enough about how fab this bottle is...artsy, dramatic, feminine, exquisite.

Womanity is so unique and wonderful, i may of just found my new sig scent, it's exceptional...perfection...my beach bliss in a bottle.
I'm in love <3

Popping my real quick to say THANK YOU for the fuller/more realistic note listing below! Much appreciated!

Now on my 2nd bottle of Womanity (& comparing against CK Reveal) I was just shaking my head that this is NOT what the notes are, at all, and then saw that review!

Blackcurrant makes perfect sense, only to - and hopefully ON??- me they smell juicy w/ the tiniest tart sweetness, almost milky, lactonic and creamy. So that + some ozonic calone & grapefruit top tang makes sense, along with a pinch of salt and a HUGE sugary helping (a la Mugler) of an apple/vanilla-like sweetness. Definitely warm semi-woody cashmeran underneath too, I'd've placed bets on that.

I FEEL LIKE IT FINALLY MAKES SENSE! :D I never found this fishy, only sweet and juicy and the tiniest tad salty with a warm base. It's quite yummy to me BUT blackcurrants are one of my fav bipolar notes, so take this with a grain of sodium salicylate ;)

I'm always shocked to see this in bargain bins. I guess it wasn't as "daring" a release as people were expecting from TM, but to me this is a beauty that I will wear proudly. It's fresh and yet deep, and I've found that it can be worn well at any time of year.

It starts out with a burst of fruit, then settles into an interesting fruity/woody/salty mix. At times it almost smells aquatic, but not in a way I dislike. An aquatic perfume without any actual aquatic notes! This is like warm days at the beach with the waves crashing and the breezes blowing. Refreshing, interesting, and ever-changing.

I have left my 30ml bottle untouched for over half a year, because I never felt comfortable wearing it. But I decided to try wearing it again after my sister got herself a large bottle of this stuff. She started wearing it daily and smelling pretty damn good...from the sillage trail she leaves behind, I get a sweet, pink, fruity aquatic with almonds (weird??) and just a barely discernible (unless you get very close) touch of cold metal. Very feminine, fresh, and sweet, but in a distinctive, non-generic way. I believe her when she says this is her no.1 most complimented fragrance. According to her, it gets even more compliments than Alien (her other favorite scent). So I spritzed some on, and am surprised that I like it alot more than I used to (maybe I just got accustomed to smelling it on my sis). The metallic note is still 'too much' for me when my nose is on my wrist, but the scent wafts up around me into something delicious, sweet/salty and crisp...it may smell like a sweet fruity aquatic with almonds on my sis, but on me it smells like a cool, salty ocean breeze and a dish of fresh figs (or guavas)...a day at the beach for sure, but more of a romantic spring day, not a bikini hot summer one. I think I will finally be happy to use up my 30ml, who knows, I might even end up loving it enough to purchase a full size bottle later on.

I think Thierry Mugler can ONLY make unusual scents and Womanity is no different. At first sniff this smells exactly like the filling of Fig Newton snack bars. It starts off very sweet. Then as it dries down it reminds me of Replica Beach Walk- it has that same salty vibe. One or two sprays is enough to last all day and it projects very well. After reading some of the reviews I didn't know what to expect, but I quite like Womanity. One could definitely take this on as a signature... It's very unique and I've never smelled this on anyone.

Does anyone else think that this bottle looks as if it's halfway through the process of being assimilated by the Borg?

I had such hopes for Womanity. On paper, it sounds so sexy. On my skin, all it smells like is fig custard. I've waited all day for the dry down to give me something aquatic, briny, but clearly it's not to be.

Instead of woman as fabulous, erotic siren, Womanity is another fig leaf Eve, chastened and hiding her sex under a loincloth.

Immediately, I am met with a sour, metallic, and very offensive burst. Just beneath it lingers a thick and choking, slightly earthy smoothness. There's also a tinge of freshness to the overall impression of this scent.

Womanity? It means tenderness and forgiveness, but the smell of the sharpened sword right behind her back is all too clear. If you give her a reason, she won't hesitate to pick it up.

You've got to know what you're doing to pull this one off. I don't think it's a "hate or love" scent. It's a "hate and love" scent. If you manage to exist admist it, Womanity can make you feel liberated like you never imagined a scent could make you.

Goes on a bit intense. I couldn't place the notes right away but when I saw fig and caviar I knew that was exactly what I was smelling. And then I wondered if I wanted to smell like caviar. It settles down, however, into a really sexy, salty skin scent. Someone here wrote that it smelled like being in love in Greece. To me, it smells like being in lust in Greece. Sex sweat, but not in a dirty way. In a fresh way. Will probably buy more samples but IDK if I'd buy a FB. I have a loooot on my FB list before this.

I like this perfume so much, but if you don't, I suggest you to try using during hot summer; I think THIS is the right season to ear it. Infact, fig is a summery- fruit. it stands wonderfully.

I steered clear from this fragrance for so long because of the reviews. But I tried it yesterday and I fell in love! It smells amazing. My hubby loves it! It smells sweet and I don't get the fishy or female private part smell at all! Try this. Don't let the bad reviews put you off.

A lady passed me by and had to turn back to ask me what this beautiful smell is. So there you go... It is BEAUTIFUL!

I am writing this review just to make a point. Always trust your own senses... I tested this today,totally biased against it after all the things I've heard about it,just out of curiosity.I tested it on paper first,too scared to let it touch my skin.... Twenty minutes later,I returned to skin test it.In my honest opinion,this perfume is the absolute masterpiece!I'll try to describe it,hoping to do it justice...This is the smell of the Mediterranean! The exact smell of a beautiful woman's skin,after spending a full day at the beach with the one she loves. The scent of the slightly burnt skin from the long hours under the sun,a little dry from the sea water,kissed by the sea breeze that carries the smell of fig trees and the burning hot sand,with just a touch of the sun tan oil,she had applied hours ago...It's a perfume with a soul,alive and kicking! A perfume full of images,memories,feelings...If you have ever been in love on a Greek island,this one will bring tears to your eyes and will make you a time traveler...Hands down,the most creative,emotional,beautiful,erotic perfume ever created! BRAVO!!!

@shivabglr: I agree with you, indeed, as many other reviewers wrote, I feel in Womanity a mild hint of coconut.
Today I spread on my skin some shea butter, which has a fragrance less sweet and more refined than coconut... then I wore Womanity: definitely a gorgeous beachy effect!!!

Honestly, I am very picky about my scents. In that, it takes a large amount of reserach on my part, before I will then decide to purchase a fragrance. Chemistry!! My chemistry never seems to agree with the popular vote. I have yet to look at the notes in this perfume, the first note to me was cinniman, though I now think perhaps fig. I wore it out for drinks with my girlfriends and both of them could not focus on the conversation as they were so intrigued by my perfume. I am now waiting to smell fish. I have had it on for 6 hours and no fish!!! Just intoxicating, beautiful, sultry and unforgetable layers that I am falling in love with.

It has bomb sillage just like Angel, but while Angel goes sweet gourmand, it is more woody...and for me it is easier to wear it. Though its name is Womanity, I think certain guys could also wear it. Just spray it lightly, and it would feel right.

This stuff is powerful. You only need a spritz or two (and the sprayer on this bottle seems to send out big firehose shots).

It's not sweet. It smells like thick salt covered figs and fresh green wood. I really like the fact that it's a gourmand, but a savory gourmand.

I usually use coconut oil as my daily moisturizer and this goes beautifully with the nutty coconut scent. I understand the reference that this smells like a womans body. I think it's the fleshy saltiness of the fig smell. It's not a gross dirty body scent. It's sun kissed skin after swimming at the ocean. It's warm and fresh at the same time, which isn't something you come across often.

The very first time I tried this years ago I wasn't sold on it, but like a good perfumista I tried it a few more times. I started finding myself craving this salty, chewy scent more and more. It really shines on warm skin. Just don't get too heavy handed or this will over power you and everyone within your zip code!

Ummm... oh my god this is delicious why didn't I discover this earlier this is amazing I love it yumm. That was the absolute flood of thought that I had on first sniffing Womanity. One of the first fragrances I've tested, let sit for 5 minutes and then bought anyway regardless of the dry down because I just knew I couldn't be without it.

I get the natural body smell from it, but not in a sweaty/horrible way - it smells like clean skin naturally does (the fig), and the saltiness supports it and keeps it interesting. It's challenging but comforting and confidence inspiring all in one - even if you don't like it, it's one of those scents everyone should smell at least once. It's unlike anything else in perfumery.

I heard a lot of horror stories about this perfume so I was very curious about testing it at the drugstore. I was waiting for something appalling, but it turned out to be an original, fresh and sheer scent that I found quite pleasant. I tried the body lotion on my hands and must have looked weird doing my shopping after because I couldn't stop to smell my hands!! Another advantage is that it lasts on the skin. It's easy for me to imagine that Womanity could become the smell on someone's skin basically all the time and it would be great because it is so natural. Nothing synthetic, nothing powdery ot candied floral. Just the humble freshness of the sea in a pink bottle. Surprising and beautiful !

I used to have this one, though I've since given it away because it did not agree with my nose. Even though I didn't like it, I have to say, this is one of the most unique perfumes I've ever smelled! Never to this day have I smelled anything that had quite the unique mixture that this does. It's definitely heavy on the woody notes, something that's not common in too many fragrances, though it is something very common in Theirry Mugler fragrances. I think it was some combination of the fruity and woody notes together that made my nose disagree with this scent, but that is besides the point!

This is an amazing, high-quality fragrance for a sexy, strong, and really confident feel. A little goes a long way! It is very strong to me, and lasts all day long! The bottle is also to die for, so glamour and yet classy and unique all at the same time.

This is definitely a really amazing perfume to invest in! It may not be right for everyone, but sometimes, that's the trademark of a good perfume! Gotta reach outside the box to make something memorable, which Womanity definitely is 100%.

Please don't overdose this perfume.
Womanity has huge sillage and is really worth the price. But it is able to narcotize your surrounding by its strong and overpowering smell. My co-worker turns me off wearing Womanity EdP cause it is hard to stand her whiff. I like the unique creation that remembers me of a day at the beach, salty skin because of seawater, and ripe figs. I love the fact it has great longevity but I can't bear myself when wearing it. Maybe I have to try the Eau de Toilette version.

After giving a look at the bottle many times, scared by many negative reviews, I decided to try this scent. As every T. Mugler’s Fragrances this one is odd. When Angel has been launched it was very innovative and it is still a masterpiece (I don’t like it very much but I admit it’s a great and unforgettable work and the same goes to Alien). Womanity is one of the best surprise for me. On my skin is really beautiful. A unique way to use the note of fig. I don’t smell fish, it is the sensation of something salty but very far from oceanic or marine fragrances. It’s a non-conformist sweet, fruity and woody scent. Obviously it’s the typical love or hate. But That’s the strong point of Womanity!

Womanity is a strange one. It starts with a juicy salty blast of the ocean. As time progresses I can smell the interior of a Chinese takeaway. I was so worried that I will smell like a restaurant! And then it settles down to an earthy base of figs and lingering marine saltiness. I don't hate it but don't love it either. It's tolerable in small doses. A little goes a long way.

Alors ce parfum pour moi est une horreur (désolée pour toutes celles qui le portent).Un parfum qui sent très fort je trouve avec l'odeur de figue qui ressort sur ma peau mais une odeur sucré comme le figue et une odeur salée (caviar) ça ne passe pas du tout .Je l'ai même fait sentir à ma mère sans rien lui dire de ce que je pensais de ce parfum et sa réponse:"Beurk c'est une odeur vraiment bizarre)

After longing for months to try her, Womanity has really flumoxed me. I got a .33 oz refill for a song because I didn't want to take a huge risk with blind purchasing such a controversial fragrance. This means that unless I decant into an atomizer, it is a splash. Mores the pity because this is STRONG STUFF. The top note is very reminiscent of Bob Mackie Mackie, which is to say sharply spicy with a tinge of cigarettes and a very ozonic hairspray element. Both of these fragrances can easily be overapplied, which probably accounts for at least a portion of the unpleasant experiences reviewers have had. I like both these fragrances, but I never would have expected them to be remotely similar. I will agree with other reviewers who say they get an ocean experience. It's not fishy at all, but smells like briny sea water laden with seaweed and little crustaceans. I wonder if this is what ambergris smells like? I have been deeply mystified that a gross whale emission was used in perfumery, but maybe this is what it brings. It is salty, essential and animalic. The sweetness is soft for me, I barely get a whiff of fig. Womanity seems to disappear after two hours, but I may be developing anosmia to this brew. If you are a fruity floral lover who doesn't enjoy unusual fragrances, just skip this one. Womanity is more an aromatic experience than a pretty refresher. I will keep trying her, she is interesting to say the least.

Edit: I went out and got an atomizer...two actually. They are small and my .33 oz refill was enough to fill both of them, so I can give one to my friend who loves Mugler fragrances. Angel actually smells good on her! Anyway, the point is, Womanity is far more wearable when spritzed!! Now I can smell the juicy fig everyone is talking about. It really is mouthwatering! In the process of decanting, I got a lot of juice all over me and I'm interested to see what my boyfriend's reaction is going to be. I'm not getting the heavy spicy cigarette note I was getting when I had to dab from a messy refill. I still get an ozonic hairspray element, but that may be because I'm accustomed to using a sea salt spray product in my hair. Also, I think salt does have a smell, and sea salt is different yet again from table salt. Further, salty liquids have a tangible feeling of being laden with the salty crystals...I swear I get that feeling with Womanity. If you've tried it and didn't like it, I would suggest trying a wafted spritz and see if that works better for you.

Another note on this masterpiece.
Lately I've sampled some marine fragrance of good quality, and I appreciate them so much. But I find that the seanotes and the salty notes in them are a little too stereotyped... nice, pleasant but a bit stereotyped. When I smell them I found a lovely, wearable and tamed sea, but not so much realistic.

On the contrary, when I smell Womanity I can sniff an authentic odor of sea, wild and deep breathing.
That's a little ironic, because I read that Thierry Mugler chose caviar to give Womanity a salty but not oceanic note... Well, to me W. is much more oceanic than many fragrances that are so called for definition!
When you walk across a shoreline, or when you go to a seaside town, you can breath a powerful salinity that fills every streets and alleys in the city. It's the iodized odor of the salty water and of all the aquatic creatures (animated and not) which live in the sea: shellfishes, conchs, seaweeds, clams, mussels, corals, jellyfishes, crabs, sea urchins, sea rocks, sand. Well, I love that odor, and Womanity reminds it to me in a very realistic way. Blended with that heavenly woody, sweet and aromatic notes, which bring me back into the mediterranean bush.

This is another reason why Womanity is so unpopular: many people likes tamed, stereotyped things. They want to wear a nice, lovely fragrance which reminds a harmless, fictitious sea.
Womanity is for people who are not afraid to wear the powerful, wild odor of the sea... a sea that's alive!

I bought my 2nd bottle a week ago and now I consider Womanity as my sig.

I live by the beach and love just sitting on the sand...watching the endless waves.
Some of us NEED to be near the ocean to be ourselves.
Wearing Womanity, I feel the same tranquility & belonging even when I'm busy working in the office. So, this is my "Ocean breeze in the bottle".

For those who have never smelled Caviar, the accord in this frag is like sniffing a seashell you picked up on the beach long ago, on that one wonderful day. It may not be a "pretty" scent on its own like a rose or an orange, but it would reminds you of something beautiful in your personal memory (or DNA....)

And if you are not familiar with Fig / Fig Leaf, I could say the opening of this frag is Grapefruit It's fruity and a bit bitter. Fig is a sappy plant, so the bitterness is from the sap. I find this sappy green scent very natural.

I think the woody scent is similar to Alien's Cashmeran. Well, it's Thierry's synthetic scent, so it's not strange if they used it in Womanity, too. Everytime I wear Alien, it reminds me of nice clean laundry. The same sunny feeling is in Womanity.

All conbined, this is an unique, sensual fragrance. Perfect for the free-spiritted.

Make sure spray it ON YOUR SKIN before you get dressed. Your clothes cannot bring out the rich depth of it.

You smell it once and remember forever. A very unique and characteristic scent, bold and daring, puts you out to everybody to see, stripped naked. Very well thought out name for this perfume - Womanity. Makes me think whether I am "woman" enough to wear it, and my answer is no, I'm not. Not yet. But then, I'm fairly young and don't feel comfortable with such an outburst of womanity as I still didn't find my place in my skin yet.

That said, upon first sniff Womanity threw me on the floor with the elegance of a sumo wrestler. The opening was way too strong, it must have something to do with all these fig notes. After a few hours it softens into a warmer, creamier version which is much nicer than the harsh opening. The bottle is one of my favourites though! The top, metal part reminds me of amazons, female soldiers and their equipment. That, combined with the soft pink liquid, fits perfectly the image of Womanity I described at the beginning.

Overall, I feel strange about this perfume. I don't like it too much at the moment, but at the same time I want to own it. I want to be comfortable wearing it.

It is very beautiful, feminine and unique scent. I live at mediterranean and the smell reminds me of one of my favorite beaches by night. Juicy fig with woody notes and slight salt on top of it. The longevity is good.
A fantastic choice for summer, try it and give it time.
Thierry Mugler is a genius, I find his fragrances like a piece of art.

It could be a commonplace to say that Womanity is a real artwork, but I think so.
Not merely a perfume, it's the portrait of a place.
The wish of the same odor you smell when you reach a mediterranean seaside, after a long period in which you lived far from the sea. Your nares revive and bloom to the saline and iodized air, to the sharp and aromatic fragrance of rosemary, myrtle, lemon, to the fleshy sweetness of the figs, and now you can join the shells, the sand, the mermaids and all the sea creatures you dreamed on for a long time.

I'm glad to see that Mugler, while imagining a tribute to women, thought to Mare Nostrum.
I think that the notes listed above are reductive: I smell many other notes, something mildly citrus and something aromatic (as in mediterranean scrub), but Womanity is so well blended that I hardly can discern them.

I can't understand people who despise Womanity: that slight odor of sea and conch can represent a metaphor that many ladies reject, but this makes Womanity special, bold and great.
If you try to imagine the odor of Venere, who was born from the foam of the sea... I don't think she was smelling of vanilla, strawberry or chocolate.
Isn't the sea the womb of the Earth?
It's so poetical and ancestral, and futuristic at the same time.

I feel many sensations and memories with Womanity, the most intimate is the instant when in the evening people leave the beach, and during the sunset, the sea wind and the wawes wipe out all humanity signs: odors, noises, footprints. I walk with my dog on the shoreline, my hair and my skin are full of saltiness, the grains of wet sand flow between my feet... and the breath of the sea is murmuring its cosmic sound.

If I should think to a character who wear this perfume, I think to Cylon 6 (Battlestar Galactica), an enchanting woman: angelic, merciless and prophetic at the same time.
And so Womanity is for me: wide and timeless.

After a year of hearing horror stories about this fragrance, I finally tested it today! I didn't know what to expect, I heard awful things about it smelling like sex, etc..Well, it couldn't be further from the truth! It's really not how the haters say! More power to you ladies, who like this scent; it's not my cup of tea, but not because it smells unpleasant, just a bit different from what I'm used to. I admire you, who can get away with this! Enjoy it lovely Womanity fan ladies! x

I actually love this fragrance- shame my family doesn't!

It is strong. And extremely long-lasting.

For me, i think my love for this scent is wrapped up in sentiment, i used to wear this regularly during a time in my life when i was extremely happy and in love and smelling it takes me right back to that time.

I bought a 50ml bottle back in 2011 and i've barely used any, it's that strong! A bit pricey for me but if you enjoy it, it is value for money.

I'm not going to make a statement whether I like it or not. I haven't decided yet. It's weird but alluring at the same time. I got it because curiosity got the Best out of me. It certainly evokes some nice childhood memories because my gramps loved figs and fig Jam and this smells a lot like natural figs. So props to that well done Mugler. However it does smell like an ashtray. Or a sunny beach (they do smell the same to me, sorry. Or it might be the sand that both share? We'll never know)
I got all the facets, coconut, leaves, fig, beach, ashtray, metallic odor, body odor, etc. I like it on MY skin after I shower, I spray this on a cotton Ball and dab myself because I wear this Just to remember my childhood. I don't care much about how everyone else wears this because they ALWAYS overspray and end up smelling like you put off a cig inside a coconut. People are awful (? But I digress, this is only a thing that happens on MY country (Argentina) since I've found that here it's only worn by massive douchetards that smoke ciggies like chimneys. They have no respect for it whatsoever and YES NOW I'M ANGRY. kthxbai
Other than that, It's pretty Tame. Nothing that Will blow your mind. It's not good or bad. It's Just weird but something that does not spark my interest much. I don't reach much for it because after a while it's boring because it's linear at Best.

After owning this fragrance for half a year I can safely say that I really do not like womanity. I cannot stand the acrid stench of the scent. The half sweet, half salty caviar mess served upon a water cracker with a slice of fig.

The silage is so heavy, you get your dollars worth definitely.

I could count the number of times ive worn womanity with less than one hand, and am promptly giving it away.

This is one of the perfumes that really confuse me and it wasn't a love at first sight.
When I saw the ad for this perfume, I thought that i'd love it, being an Alien fan, i thought that hey this will definitely be awesome. Went to try it and i was traumatized, seriously i gagged and said it's the most awful perfume i ever tried on, being disappointed i went home and left it all behind, whenever i remembered the scent i would gag and shiver......until last year when a miracle happened. I was trying on the Angel EDT (since i also disliked the angel EDP for being overwhelmingly sweet) and got the angel EDT and the Mugler cologne (yes, a thierry mugler frenzy i got back then)I decided i'd try on Womanity again, and oh my god, "I've never been so wrong in my life" was the first sentence i mumbeled to myself after catching the first whiff,a very sweet/salty, almost bitter whiff. I fell in love and bought it.

I can't really tell between the "fig tree" and "fig leaf" and the "fig" as notes, but i can definitely tell the difference on my skin, at which stage it's bitter or when it's sweet with a hint of a woody note.
As i said, it first opens up with a bitter sweet (literally, lol) fig note with a hint of the savory caviar. After it settles down, i can detect on my skin (other than the sweetness of the fig and the salty caviar)a woody and grassy note, almost "green" if you will.

The most amazing thing about this perfume is the dry down, well, it's not that different from the phase i described above, it's sweet/bitter/salty/woody/grassy, which makes this the most consistent perfume i've smelt thus far, at each stage you can detect the same notes but with different prominence, and every time i spray it, it's the same transition with the same intensity (of the notes).
The most surprising thing about this perfume is that it's somehow airy, on my skin at least. It's not -just there- sticking on my skin being heavy and well....sticky, it's light in it's own way and airy. I really love the grassy/woody note i get, it also tones down the sweetness of the perfume.
I love how long it stays, there's no need for reapplying unless you want to feel it around you again, i sprayed it in my closet once and it stayed on my clothes for at least 4 days.
The sillage is wow, just wow, everyone turns around to see who is that girl with the overwhelming perfume, that's why a couple of spritz or 3 is enough cause it really does fill the room and i've a true story that took place last week to prove it, i'm mainly writing this review so you guys could get a kick out of it.

I'm a collage student, so getting into rooms that kinda smell like food, sweat or both is common, especially that they tend to close the windows and the door and turn on the AC, you know what i'm getting at, the room feels stuffy as well and it's just ugh, and people know how i'm always reapplying perfumes when i get into a class because of the unpleasent smells of the room.
It was a nice day, did well in a quiz i had,kinda hot and there was some humidity in the air, it was that kind of heavy,stagnant weather, the Doctor is late and the class feels a bit stuffy, so i take out womanity and spray one spritz, ONLY ONE!!! And oh my god,the reaction of the other studnets with me in the class, it was hilarious. I'm pretty sure most of you might be familiar with the movie "Anchorman" the scene of "sex panther" when everyone is just like "What is that smell?" "A huge diaper filled with indian food" "Smells like big foot's d**k" well, the situation was close enough hahahahahaha, oh my god i'll never wear it on hot days agin, a girl said "Something smells like rotten mangoes" and there were people covering their noses with their hands or tissues and when the doctor came in and while he's explaining he'd cough so hard and there i was sitting there and trying so hard not to burst out laughing, keeping a poker face was so hard. Other comments were "smells like fish that stayed too long in the sun" and "Bad egg salad".
I'm mentally scarred hahaha, i swear, i wore it many times (mainly in winter) and never got comments like that, problem is i didn't get the "bad smell" they were smelling and i even went with it at first (when i didn't know what was bothering them) and asked what's that smell? hahhahaha, I'm never never never never ever wearing it in hot weather again, I'll wear it in Winter only. I was wearing a polkadot shirt and thought it would be cute with it xD Never again, at least not in college lol. So bad.

Nonetheless, I LOVE the perfume and will still wear it....just not in summer xD
It's really addicting though, when i've it on i keep sniffing my wrist or arm like a junky.
I seriously love it, i don't even know how the noses thought about this baby. I love the bottle too, the mask and the chain are metal and kinda suit the caviar and how salty and how almost metallic it is and it really does suit the perfume.
Again, it's veeeeeeery long lasting and well, the sillage is beyond amazing no denying that.
I think ladies of all ages could pull it off, just be confidant in yourself and the perfume, and if a situation like mine happened to you, just keep a poker face and try your best not to laugh. I mean I'm not gonna apologize for wearing a perfume i love :P
It's weird how people concieved it as bad, i even imagined wearing it at the beach. maybe humidity doesn't suit it, oh well, still in love!!

I received a mini of this from a sales lady at the fragrance boutique. I cannot give a real review on this because it has to be the weirdest smelling perfume I have ever smelled. I have absolutely NO idea what any of the notes are. It's not all that bad, but then again, I would never go buy a full bottle. Must be an acquired taste. To the people who say it smells like a woman's vagaygay? You really need to get yourself checked into a hospital, because if that's what your vagaygay smells like, you're in trouble! LOL :-)

Τhe fact that there are so many reviews on this,means that is an interesting perfume after all.
I personally like it very much.On me smells nice,
on my sister smells amazing!
Is pretty intense on the beginning but here in Mediterranean places,we feel pretty common with fig scent.In the middle and in the end is a heavenly floral-I don't know from where,there are no flowers in the composition!
I don't know where all those negative reviews come from.
Maybe if we didn't knew the notes we didn't make so much noise about.My opinion as always.

Christinavictory vagina?Really??.....Well considering that it has a fishy note its not a hardstretch to connect the two. And yes the initial burst is strong fig leaves then to me salty fresh balsamic goodness. I love this quirkiness. Thierry gets 5 stars for originality. Im definitely adding this to my collection to wear on days when I need a thrill and just something out of the box so to speak.

First spray: didn't really get it, moved on to other perfumes, but after reading the mixed reviews I decided to try it again.

Second spray : What is this, did not care for it at all, I found it bleak in comparison to Miss Dior Le Parfum which I had on my other wrist. Washed it off almost instantly, but then regretted it, knowing that I should have let it develop on my skin. Was still curious about it.

Third spray. Patience... leave it on,,,, and don't run off trying other perfumes. Mmmmm ......I get it and love it, so different, salty and beautiful.

So when you say you hate it after your first sniff, give it a another go, cause you might just do a total turn around when it comes to this little beauty.

Sniffed this at random in a shop & did not like it, but was given a sample today. Just put it on my wrist and have fell in love. It has immediately enveloped my skin with only a slight amount of sweetness, perhaps a hint of pineapple and fig. Now need to wait another few hours for other notes.

Out of all Mugler fragrances, this one gets the least amount of action and exposure. It's the last thing anyone thinks of showing, yet it's such an interesting scent. Due to the fact that this tends to be a sales persons last resort on most occasions, the fragrance juice spoils from neglect. You have no idea how many bottles I've emptied that had been on display and were shown to customers when the juice was brown...it should be pink. It's actually very sexy of a scent. Has a beach vacation, care free vibe going. I smell the salty tone, but no fish. Makes me wonder what kind of fish people buy to eat.

Btw; it's actually a salty marine accord and not actually caviar. They only used the word caviar for emphasis of something unusual, salty, expensive. I know I might get a rebuttal about this, but believe me. The people in marketing are idiots for putting caviar as a listed ingredient.

This fragrance has the best shower gel. Smells nothing like the fragrance, just fruity with a strawberry musk essence and perfumes you beautifully.

I got a sample of this when I bought another Mugler fragrance. I put the sample on my wrist and gave it a sniff and Wow! it is unlike any perfume I've smelled. The first word that came to mind is tangy. It was completely gone within the hour which was alright with me since it really isn't my kind of scent, but it was definitely something different.

I can appreciate the quality of some perfumes even if they are not to my liking but never been more repulsed by a scent before. I do not normally leave negative reviews but this one is just offensive to my senses. I am pretty sure the caviar note is to blame for it.

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!

Plain 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!

Oh my goodness, this is an interesting one! I had been wanting to try it just because the opinions on this fragrance are so polarizing, so I was excited to see an open package at TJMaxx today. I found out that I really do not care for this one! It is extremely sweet and salty, which is not a good combination to my nose. I don't get any freshness from this one at all, only stomach turning sweetness. I now understand what people mean when they call certain perfumes scrubbers - I literally went directly to the sink when I got home to wash my hands. The one pro, however, for all of you who love this one, is that this has the most amazing longevity of any fragrance I have tried! I sprayed it on the back of my hand, and it lasted through multiple hand washings throughout the day, plus through the baths of both of my kids! I would say that this definitely would not be a safe blind buy!

I tested this today morning. The opening (for about 5 minutes) is very green. At this stage I don't like it at all. But it doesn't last long. Then comes the fruit. There's fig. It is a juicy, sweet-ish fig, one that has been lying in the sun right after having been picked. There's spice - a bit like the spiciness in gingerbread cookies. And it's salty. Not anchonie or fishy salty. It's like a dollop of sweetened, spiced fig chutney laid on saltine cracker. It is a lovely contradiction, mouthwatering and luscious. This, for me, would be great in spiring, especially on a pleasantly cool evening. Feminine and friendly.

I just can't see how this perfume smells like fish?! and believe me I would know as I hate the smell of fish. In fact I don't get any weird smell out of this perfume, it just simply smells lovely!

On me it smells like figs with a hint of spice, and may I add its really fresh and yummy! The dry down is a bit creamy and the hint of spice continues on...

I dont think its a masculen perfume, but a man who would like to smell 'a bit sweet' might like it perhaps?

For me this ones a keeper, I LOVE it! And the fact that not everyone out there likes it makes this perfume more special, cause I hate it when perfumes get popular and everyone starts to wear them.

EDIT: I am sorry, @akurai_hana its not up to you to decide whether or not there's something wrong with my nose, or anyone elses for that matter, in fact I have a very sensitive nose! By the way caviar doesn't smell like fish, you should try smelling it one day :)

this reminds me of shampoo kind of. it's a salty, aquatic figgy scent that doesn't really morph much on my skin. the scent stays true to form for a long time. it tickles my nose whenever i smell it, and it is a very beachy scent. this isn't really a "me" scent but i do like fig and was intrigued to try it. it's too clean for my personal tastes, but i like how unique it is for a perfume. as a shampoo or soap i think i'd like it even better, because it has that freshly cleaned hair/beachy scent to it.

On my skin was left with a bittersweet flavor and powerful fig.
This is a beachy fig coming from the Mediterranean, I did not bad, not only just exotic and innovative, it is sweet and salty at the same time, it on my skin.
Fixing and fantastic, great projections for winter.
In short, Womanity is a scent of "fig with salt and sugar."

When I got into perfume, Womanity was one of the first two scents I specifically ordered a tester of. The other scents was Boucheron's Trouble. Two scents that had been recommended to me, but were known for being polarizing.

When they came in, I sprayed Womanity on my left wrist, Trouble on my right - and I spent the next two hours in olfactory delight. On me, Womanity smells like I just spent a day at the beach. Salty, sweet, slightly sweaty. It was heavenly combined with the amber-citrus aroma of Trouble.

Since then, I have worn Womanity several times, both solo and paired with Trouble. I wear it alone when I will be out in the sun for several hours, either relaxing or running errands. I'll mix it with Trouble when I feel the need to be a badass b!tch.

And obviously, this is my first and only choice for going to the beach. I put it on right after the sunscreen.

This is a truly enigmatic fragrance. It changes as my moods do. I do not get what the others refer to as the fish factor, on me, this scent varies from a fresh, bright floral to a salty, earthy delight. The scent itself seems to project differently depending on how many times you apply it.

Great sillage, great projection, the only problem I could think of is that it's not edible ;D 9/10 overall

I'm trying this again from a dab on sample. Really, I'm so confused about all the fish and "downstairs" reviews. This to me smells extremely fresh, slightly salty, slightly sweet. I'd get a bottle in a heartbeat, if I wouldn't be worried that others actually might smell something fishy in this that my nose just don't detect. To me this is really pretty, natural smelling and not at least offensive in any way. I think I need a bottle, to heck with what anyone else might smell :)

I swear this perfume smells EXACTLY like you're sitting down to eat a freshly made Thai green curry chicken with steamed jasmine rice. There's a large glass of iced coconut water and a bowl of floating frangipanis on the table. It's humid and raining and the ocean from the beachfront looks wild and tempestuous.... that's Womanity.

I first received a sample of this a couple of years ago. Read the reviews, and laughed about them with my husband. I would sniff the sample quizzically, trying to decipher the notes and the strangeness of the scent, and eventually threw away the sample. Recently, I started craving the scent...big time! I dont know how or why, but I needed to have it in my collection. It arrived in the mail, and I finally sprayed it on my skin. Oh my goodness...I am in love!
At first spray, I was hit with a blast of bright and juicy fig-very fruity and spicy. This very quickly shifted into a very creamy fig and the caviar/cigarette smell that others talk about. I do NOT find this fishy. I hate fish. I am a vegetarian and my nose is very sensitive to sniffing out (and sending back) dishes with fish sauce in them. This is carnal, sexy, unapologetic. This is salty, smokey, and savory. Another site listed granite as a note, and I think this is the note that ppl are picking up when they think they smell cigarettes. On my skin, this note doesn't stand out, but it is present.
The dry down is actually very warm, salty, and sweet (not sugary), and leaves me wanting to bite my wrist. My mouth literally waters when I sniff the bottle. Throughout the day, this perfume does carry the ever present mystery note that I think of as the "Theirry Mugler" note. No idea what it is, but there is something that ties all of his scents together.
I am saddened that this scent isnt appreciated for the complex, delicious marvel that it is. I understand other's hesitation...as it isn't a simpering white floral, a candy gourmand, or a worn out tuberose. But I think those who want a thought provoking scent experience should give this a go.

This is my favorite fragrance. it's hard not to overdo it, though, when you love it. I get compliments on this every time I wear it -- usually from total strangers. So I guess I walk around in an atom bomb cloud of it, but it is just so soft and just the right amount of "hmmm?" from the fig wood. This one has me sniffing my wrist all day and all night. No idea how Thierry got so much complexity out of just a handful of notes. I do not get any briny smell until way late in the dry down, and I would say much more sandy and fresh than salty. This is worth a blind buy. I'll wear it (and the lotion) as long as I can.

This scent really grew on me. When I first tried it I was intrigued, but not won over. It took a few more tries to really appreciate it and sink into it. I now love its savory and sweet freshness ... makes me think of Aphrodite rising out of sea foam.
When I wear this I feel like a goddess, beautiful in a raw and untamed way. This scent does bring out your own natural odor, but in an enhanced and pleasant way. Maybe that's why it can smell like sweat, but in a "rolling in the sheets all day" kind of sweat. There's something scintillating and empowering about smelling like that.

Not my cup of tea, though not for the reason many seem to have encountered with this.. I get zero "skank/sex" scent from this.. none, at all. Not getting any of the savory aspect either!

Feels like fruit juice cocktail after having warmed up and in the sun, melting the ice.. :/ I get a watery, fruity overripeness and that is just NOT my thing! Too much fig...

It's not a bad scent, but for me, it's just not concrete/dense enough of a scent, nor is it clear or airy - those seem to be my opposite end go to types.

@stardust808 You're completely overreacting. Everyone can voice their opinion here and this was what @perfumeaddiction thought of the scent. In fact I looked back at her post and she said nothing about dead fish, she was actually quite respectful! I find it amusing when people can't accept that some others don't like their favourite scents. I couldn't care less if someone said something negative about my favourite, I know I like it and that's it. I'm sure you didn't just write amazing reviews in the past! I find the negative reviews helpful, it's natural that not everyone will like the same things and it helps people decide if it's their cup of tea or not. So relax, she hasn't done anything wrong, in fact her post made me more curious to try this perfume!:)

@perfumeaddiction that must have been a spoiled tester. i am so tired of people having a preconceived notion of this beautiful fragrance the power of suggestion can play mind tricks. it sounds very ignorant to say this smells of fish because it is known to have caviar. yawn... people who don't wear this say that and people who try old testers that sit under fluorescent lights for perhaps years that have been contaminated by the air with no lid on it say that! i have come across many fragrances that smell very different than the department store tester. i own this and it is severely under rated and been tagged to be something horrible that it isn't.i wear this often and EVERY time get compliments...it's gorgeous! watery, woody, sweet, spicy and reminds me of the fresh salt air and driftwood on a cool spring day at the shore.maybe growing up at the Jersey shore makes me partial to this kind of aquatic scent but it was love as first sniff. it's familiar but with a twist and soooo feminine- it is NOT rotten fish and never once has anyone ever mentioned anything remotely similar to a fishy smell. that sales person shouldn't have her job. how unprofessional and overdramatic. it's perfume not toxic waste. puhlease. attitudes like that are what turn people away from good things and what make good things like this perfume get discontinued and people who can appreciate them have to go without. this is far more beautiful than angel yet this one is becoming scarce...i wonder if there was a bad association with one of it's ingredients would it still be around? would people be as closed minded to it and misjudge it like they do womanity? let me repeat that this smells NOTHING like rotten fish...

One of the few perfumes I bought blind because of the reviews and description. My first impression was, "wow that's interesting". But the longer I had it on the more I disliked it. I will say that it's an unusual scent. I might try it again to see if my feelings change. More likely, I will sell it to someone else though. My husband's reaction was "meh".

I did decide to try this one more time. I had about the same results except this time I actually had to wash it off because it was starting to make me feel a little sick. The fig is just too sweet. There is an underlying peppery scent just as it dries down that's a nice contrast to the sweetness of the fig but it's not enough to temper the headache inducing way it finishes for me. At least I've learned to avoid anything with fig from now on!

I must admit I don't like the fig start. Too sweet to my taste. But it disappears quite quickly and is replaced by the caviar note that I absolutely love. It's salty and reminds me so much of the sea. And it's unique. One of my all time favourites.

After seeing all the negative hype Womanity has gotten, I was both extremely curious and kind of afraid to try it. Now, though, I'm so glad that I did, and I plan to wear it a lot more! On my skin anyway, it is a pretty incredible fragrance. It smells the way I had hoped Un Jardin en Mediterranee would. Right away, fresh, dewy fig is prominent. About three hours in, it softens more and begins to take on a woodier character that makes the fig smell warmer, drier, and creamier. This fragrance could project to those standing or sitting near me, and so far it's lasted for about 11 hours, although it's definitely winding down now.

I have to say, I do not smell the caviar notes in this. It does not smell salty to me, although I do get an aquatic vibe for the first few hours. Perhaps after more wearings. In some ways, the fragrance occasionally reminded me of the smell of a shampoo or hair product, but I can't say that I thought that was a bad thing. I more felt that this is not your conventional perfume in that it almost smells as though it could be emanating from your hair, or radiating from your skin itself.

Oh wow, I have just fell in love! Womanity is a very peculiar fragrance, it has a very sweet, yet salty, yet fresh feel to it. It is a very distinctive opening, and I very gorgeous opening. Once it begins to dry down, it becomes a lot more tame, and the fig really comes in and makes it warm and sweet. I personally love this scent so much. It lasts for a very long time, and it also projects well also! My favourite part of this fragrance though is definitely the bottle! The bottle is stunning and I personally think that this is Thierry Mugler's best bottle! I'm going on holiday in a couple weeks and I saw this very cheap in the duty free (£35 for the 80ml!) so this will be my next purchase!

Quick impression: I just absent mindedly spritzed it twice in skin. I had no idea what I was smelling. It is a pefume of contrasts. Sharp vs smooth, sweet-salty, dry vs damp. Some kind of sweet gourmand base, maybe some cashmere wood, intense grapefruit bergamot, salty metallic tang, some kind of tropical floral like orange blossom, sweet berries... Bewildering for sure. But it smells divine! Bewitching. I need a sample. Couldn't stop smelling it on myself. Like this better a heck lot more than alien or angel

I can see why some might really like this. Most of all it's fruity and sweet. I get an expansive and somewhat aquatic middle note impression followed by a slightly animalic musky dry down. I'll admit I kept sniffing my wrist because I did find it interesting but when it came down to it, all it reminded me of was pink musk lolly sticks!

Wow. Just wow, wow, wow. This perfume is so unexpected and almost startling ..... A pink girlish liquid that screams some kind of crazy floral concoction that will attract a hoard of bees in the summer. You grudgingly try it thinking you can shower it off after you have stunk up the mall and then you smell this woody sweet earthy green salty scent that makes you check your sanity. Is my sniffer broken from too much perfume sniffing in my life? Or is this just a perfume like no other?

I have NEVER smelled anything like this. I will stock up out of fear of it being discontinued. If you just use a small squirt this is office safe to me. I don't think the sillage is as wide and far as others by Thierry. This will be sitting right next to the Sensuous line as my favorite scents. I would have found it years ago.

The name is annoying, the bottle is beautiful, and the scent is a little of both. I first tried this as a sample in a Sephora order. It is sharp, like a sunny but icy-cold winter day. I get a scent of sharp wintergreen and the oils from a grapefruit skin, with salt. I can't smell anything that reminds me of a fig at all. I grew up with a fig tree in the yard, and frankly, figs aren't smelly to me. Maybe I'm anosmic for something others smell in figs? I loved that first sample. When I recently got a bottle, I found that it smells different, at first. Is it the spray mechanism? A different formula? Damage in storage or shipping? After a few hours the scent matches my expectation.

I have a mini of this and a small tube the body lotion. It will be enough to last me the rest of my life at the amount and rate I wear it, normally I'm one to bathe in fragrances. Not with Womanity, you honestly need a dab or two. With the perfume dabbed and a slather of lotion on your hands will create serious hang time in the room after you've left.

It's interesting, very different, to say the least. I don't get "fish" from this, I smell figs and salty notes and a creaminess. I like it, but its not something I'd make a signature out of. Every once in a while I get cravings for fragrances, this is one I get a craving for from time to time.

I've never tasted or smelled figs.

Womanity has a strong, leafy opening that dissipates quickly. The drydown smells like canned cherries and cinnamon on a thin tart. Juicy, creamy, sharp, spicy, savory.

Oh God. I'm so happy I managed to resell my bottle. Caution: never buy a scent based on a body lotion sample (worked like a charm with Angel years back, caused this embarrassingly unfortunate purchase last year).

What the listed notes don't tell you is that this scent has a strong AQUATIC component, something I've traced later on in just few of the older reviews. While this note was "hidden" in the body balm sample, it is painfully noticeable in the EDP.

To give it justice - my husband reacted to it the way a cat reacts to catnip, but I just couldn't, couldn't bear the aquatic note, especially mixed with figs.

I bought this perfume at Marshalls because I was curious about the Womanity/Thierry Mugler buzz. A lot has been said about this perfume. Now that I have worn it a couple of times, I can say that I am not a fan. Womanity is not unpleasant at first, I get the fig - reminding me of a soft and smooth medicinal herbal green tea, but after a while that smell gets caught in my throat, which puts me off. What ruins this perfume completely for me is the caviar which seems to get stronger and stronger as the day progresses. I wish the caviar blended in smoothly with the fig, but it just doesn't. The caviar is too sharp and salty, coming and going in wafts, fighting for attention. All that being said, I got A LOT of compliments wearing this perfume today. I just don't like smelling it on myself.

update: oh womanity how i love you...since after getting a fresh refill this past fall from mugler online winter is here and some of the true character of womanity's notes are coming out with the season change that i didn't notice before that is taming down the fig leaves that were so dominant during the summer/ fall..not only is the fig and green fig leaves there but the cold seems to bring out more of a nutty creamy smell to it like nuts you would eat that wasn't noticeable before..i don't know how figs and nuts work together but it is becoming more and more amazing like the womanity i remember originally when it first came out years ago...what a transformation this one does...my husband loves this one and i notice most men online seem to be really attracted to this fragrance..so i think its definitely one you could wear on a date.

I'm surprised that so many perfumistas hate this fragrance!
It's quite unique, perfectly Muglerish. On me it's quite light, the lightest of all Muglers' perfumes i've tried. A perfume that's not annoying or nauseating. Att first I get a huge blast of sour fig and green leaves, later the sourness dissapears. But with this also a big part of the uniqueness.

Someone said "you either love it or hate it". Me, I BOTH love it and hate it. It´s a dirty/fresh, charming/turn-offish, vivid/stale and utterly captivating a scent. I haven´t yet put it on my body. I sprayed it in the air and smelled, then brought it back home on a tester strip. It´s still in the back of my jeans and they are hanging on a chair in another room. I swear, I get whiffs from it into the other room here! I can´t say how I feel about it, but I certainly feel something. This is a... brilliant perfume. It´s genius. Everything I ate today after I smelled it TASTED like slightly, slightly too ripe figs or plums, salty, sweaty tears or... something else from the body... Both my brother and my man found it very good, which really surprised me- the first one is into patchouli and fruity scents, the latter is into gourmands (on women). Maybe Womanity is ALL of these and something else too? I can´t write more about it now, but I will... get it. SO weird, so intoxicating.

It seems like everyone is either love it or hate it with this one. Where as I'm somewhere in the middle. After smelling it I'm certainly not going out to buy a bottle, but I'm not repulsed either. After the initial blast of fig I do get a beachy salty scent, but it doesn't come off as fishy to me.
On my skin it smells really zesty? Almost like a margarita oddly enough.

To me this reminds me a lot of Dior Dune, which I love. Both has salty compositions that instantly takes me to a place with sand, seawater, and sun. Definitely something I'll wait until the summer to wear.

Firstly, I'd like to begin this review by saying this: there are so many things to say about Womanity that I just don't know if I can do it. I tried so hard to think about everything that could be said of the fragrance, because it's so incredible, I really don't want to miss anything. If this was a video, it would be way too long. Since it's not, prepare yourself because it's going to be large anyways.

Well, Womanity was introduced in 2010 by the house of Thierry Mugler, which had already created monsters of the perfumery, and I talk about Angel and Alien. They had already shocked, thrilled, ashamed and they had already made many people glad because they are, indeed, beautiful creations. Things are not that different with Womanity, are they? Womanity is a fragrance to be in love with or to repulse with all one's forces. Thierry Mugler says he knows his perfumes are so unusual that 2% or 3% of people would love them, but them would love their perfumes so much that they would not be able to stay away from them again and that would be enough to give him fortunes all the years. And not just because their fragrances are different, but because they are quality and strong, so who likes exotic, dizzying creations which are really potent, just get to know Thierry Mugler's fragrances.

I think the part where he says we will not be able to stay away from his fragrances are true, after all. I have already thought about stop collecting perfumes millions of times, but I would always have to be a place for Thierry Mugler perfumes in my wardrobe.

Speaking about Womanity itself, Thierry Mugler the brand says Womanity is a connection, it's something all women have in commom. Well, what would be that thing all women have in commom? "Their femininity", of course, we are not fool, we know what he is talking about! Why did them choose figs and caviar to represent femininity? Come on, look at the shape of fig, think a little bit about the caviar... where does life starts? What do you think about fertility? Get the picture?

Of course, life starts from the sea, too. There are many interpretations for Womanity, that's why it's so hard to talk about it! It also seems to have some "mermaid" thing, because of the fresh salty air, the fresh salty water, the "fish" thing, the woods, like the boats of the fishermen... the thing is, Womanity really enchants like a voice of a mermaid. It enchants the eyes, the nose and the mind... wait, I think I'm hearing something from the bottle...

Womanity starts off with fig, fig, fig. Sweet fig, caramelized figs, warm figs, savoury figs, fizzy figs, fresh figs... I also detect, from the beginning, a smoky thing in the background, giving the perfect effect. As the hours go by, the smokiness quality of the fragrance keeps her perfomance while the salty sea water appears and the herbs come to the fragrance. Forget about people who say Womanity smells like those disgusting things, I personally would not like to talk about it here because I really think it's too disgusting and inelegant. I bet if they did not know Womanity have caviar in the notes, they would not say that...

Longevity, wow, amazing. Womanity lasts on the skin as if time would not have passed, as if you would not have sweat. After 10 hours it's still there, in its weird beauty, in its futuristic and modern way. Projection and sillage are fantastic too, people notice you are wearing Womanity and you might give them headaches - or you might make them fall for you...

Give Womanity a chance, don't be afraid... if you are, you will lose the show...

Smells like salty fig jam! As it dries down the caviar becomes less apparent though. Very unique, long lasting and not as bad as it looks.

Strange and lovely at the same time. The EDP is much more salty than the lotion. The scent of the sweet fig comes more in depth through the lotion that in the EDP. Combined the wear is an amazing scent that last all day. I have owned this for a month and I can't stop smelling how great and truly unique this scent is.

Truly a star! Womanity is very decadent with sweet-salty accords. I think this perfume will become legendary as it is already discontinued. It has a unique crisp, fruity but sensual woody drydown. Very oily, excellent sillage and longevity. Most definitely a high quality perfume made with high standards.

It changes with time. At first it was very salty and sour - a scrubber to me. Then it became fruity-sweet, not salty at all and less sour. Then salty again. Then fruity. Salty. Fruity. (think of sweet & salty popcorn)

As I dislike the salty 'stage', I wouldn't wear it. I see why so many people dislike Womanity but I also get it why some people love it. My friend wears this fragrance and she receives lots of compliments even from strangers. Her sister hates it though. So it's a matter of taste :)

This is a Fruity Oceanic frag on my skin.
'Fruit' here, is strictly Fig.
Fig, Fig Leaf, Cinnamon & Ocean Breeze.

It suits sultry sandy beach on which I live.
The saltiness is the scent of crisp hair & sticky skin after dippin' in the sea water. It's always sensual. I understand some say 'sex in a bottle' 'naughty'. It is.

I love Angel, and do understand why many people passionately hate my beloved.
But Womanity... I don't see why. No perfume is for everyone, but is this one that outrageous? FISHY VAGINA? LOL, I don't think so... It's unique, but not like that.

The figgy-ness reminds me of Wild Fig & Cassis by Jo Malone.
Womanity is much more interesting and wearable though.

Thank you Thierry xxx

What a masterpiece of a perfume and even a bottle-very rare to meet both together so beautiful. It's unusual and amazing scent of salt, figs and sweetness - and it goes with your skin or doesn't: so all these comparisons to human all sort of liquids are so rude and immature, IMO.
After two wearings from a gift bottle from sweet Kat.82 I immadiately bought another back up bottle- I don't want to be without it at least for a few years.

Ahh! Venus just came out from the sea and having a fresh bread, caviar or some seafood and figs. Gorgeous scent only need a little to put on and I have with the lotion. Smells so good and sexy think aphrodisiac food oyster with the one. A romantic getaway by the see or ocean!

This came in the mail today, blind buy very small travel size along with
blind buy regular size Pure Poison. Thankfully, the correct size was purchased in each scent. I don't know if I can do a full bottle of this concoction. I don't even know
what to make of it. Angel, I've been wearing since the 90's. This reminds me of Angel that hasnt bathed in a month. There's something very animalistic about Womanity. It's unlike anything I've ever sniffed before. I'm not even sure if i like it. My husband bit my wrist and keeps coming back so it certainly leaves an impression. I think I might be too bashful
to wear this one in public. Thank God I'm not
Going anywhere tonight. It's very naughty. It's sex in a bottle, but a dirty bottle. I'm not even
sure it smells feminine to me. Maybe in a dominatrix way. But not a nice girl way, or
even a stripper way.

I don't dislike it, I'm thoroughly confused by Womanity.

In this fragrance, all that I can smell is fruit — a watery fruit... with just a small hint of something woodsy in the background. I didn't get any "sexual" kind of notes out of this, so I have no idea why other people are mentioning it. Maybe it's just my nose! I wasn't impressed with this scent. It's not offensive or bad smelling, but I wouldn't choose it to wear.

I was so afraid after reading this review. I had already ordered a bottle from a fragrance website. Well, I am happy to say that it smells quite nice. I am not good at describing scents but I would say it smells woody, and slightly sweet, salty. Definitely exotic. I usually go for more sweet smells, amber, vanillias, jasmine etc etc. this is different but in a good way. Hubby says it smells good but exotic, so I think it's a good purchase.

I've actually smelled both the EDP and the recently released "Liquours" version of this controversial scent.

The opening is peculiar. The caviar gives a salty spiciness that reminds me of walking into an Asian Food market and getting this blast of pungent peppers, strange teas and root vegetables all compacted together into one musky savoury accord. Hard to pin down, but I've heard other people say it reminds them of Chinese food, so I'm on the right track.

It's not fishy, thank God. Eventually mutes down into a dense, musky fig note. I can't say it smells good, but it's not awful either. I think half the buzz around it is working out what the caviar smells like, but when that novelty wears off it becomes fairly dull and uninteresting.

The pink juice is misleading too. I don't think this smells feminine, a man could definitely wear this...in fact I would speculate it would smell better on a man, because he could carry the density more?

Wow, talk about a violently polarizing scent! I picked this up at TJ Maxx for a song tonight, blind buy, and sprayed it on my wrist...immediate dislike. Five, ten, fifteen, thirty minutes in- still did not like. Walked back down the hall after two hours and decided to try it on the inside of my elbow...wowza!!! Helllloooooo FIG! Now I can't tear my nose away from the crook of my elbow. How crazy. I have always loved and enjoyed perfume, but was never fully 'into' it until recently. Now I am indulging in my love of scents, and much more open to different things. This is different for me. I really like the fresh and almost bitter bite of Diptyque's Philosykos (at least it's got a very fresh and crisp bite on my skin), and this is similar- at least at first. Here's hoping it lasts longer than Diptyque's five second longevity...Will have to try it on the cleavage next. That will be the true test.
Next day update: Nope, no can do. I love the figgy freshness of the opening and heart, but the drydown leaves me with a musty musk scent. Back it goes. But I bet it would be fantastic on the right person!

Not keen. Smells good at a distance but on me it is strident rather than assertive, cold and harsh like a walk on a frozen, windy beach. The scent of fig is like sap from branches broken by the winter storms, when I just wanted the warmth of sun ripened fruit. It's metallic, tangy and chemical.

24 hours later I could still smell it on my skin and where my coat had touched my wrists. The dry down stayed much the same, after the initial 'hit' had worn off. It just doesn't have that 'feel good' factor. I can think of one or two people who might 'wear it well', but it's not for me!

I didn't really know what to expect from Womanity when I first obtained a sample. The reviews were divided. Some in high praise, some hilarious, some truly horrified. Intriguing, to say the least.

On first contact with my skin I didn't sense any figs, and I love figs A LOT. I don't know caviar (I've been a vegetarian for 16 years) and I dind't really know what to make of it. So, in a bit of an absent-minded way, I kept sniffing my hand and looking at the pictures of Womanity bottles online.

As the salty scent unfolded and I kept studying the bottle, I was envisioning Womanity as an alien creature that emerged from our oceans, akin to the aliens in Abyss but not quite. An android. The salty metallic twang was the creature's mechanical, yet bilogical appearance, a living organism, but not quite, of a great but unkown type of intelligence.

As the attractive, and equally frightening creature swam out to shore, the salty scent was accompanied by the smell of algae, plankton, microscopic sea life and weeds. A real oceanic scent with an undeniable sweetness underneath Must be the figs! Them alien figs! *palmface*

The gathering crowd reacts; some are horrified, some afraid, some eccstatic, joyful and ready to worship.

Womanity is a sharp, but surprisingly creamy creation, huge, with shiny, metalic, chrome-like parts but is just as sensual, smooth, even slippery and with a shimmer that seems almost gooey. Fishy!

It's like a strange, sweet/metallic, salty scent of the fruits that grow on strange worlds that attract as much as repel us, combining the enigma with the core of all things familiar, the great unknown with the universal spark shared by us all.

And it's potent and long lasting and projects far and wide. Just as you'd expect from an alien life form. ;)

I thinks people's skin chemistry can be specific to certain perfumers on whether they mesh well or not. Mugger's perfumes, while smelling exquisite on others smell sickeningly sweet on me. Womanity is no exception, I smell like coconuts and cigars...ugh! However, this smells amazing on my boyfriend so I gave it it him. At least someone benefited from my purchase. In the future I will stick to the perfumers I know meshes well with my chemistry.

anyone who says this smells fishy is either in denial about letting this beautiful creation into their lives, or hasn't got a very complex sense of smell.

This perfume is INTERESTING. you smell it, and you don't know if you like it or love it, and its kind of a guilty pleasure because the scent is so unique and special that you almost feel weird about it, as if you shouldn't be allowed love it.

I will admit that this probably either works on your skin or doesn't, but just smelling the top of the bottle you get the impression of a fig tree on a beach with a breeze blowing behind it into your face. you get this marine twang backing up the almost dense fig, as well as a hint of the fig tree including bark and leaves and all.

now on my skin in particular, it becomes savoury due to this salty edge, but the fig is brought out in a heated sweetness that creates the most intriguing combination that is so foody that its mouth-watering.

This perfume is mature and elegant, but also a powerhouse in terms of how it makes the wearer feel. I think it could work for men as well as women, but on women its kind of like 'I AM WOMAN HEAR ME ROAR' and it beams confidence and daring to be different from the typical 'I love light fruity florals ridden with sugar!', which can be great, but every now and then I think everyone should make a change to something out of their comfort zone of sweetness,

so why not at least pick up and smell Womanity? whats the worst that could happen.

Yeahh I know it' s a female fragrance but how could I resist it' s fig and marine accords that blow my mind??

Womanity is not for the faint of heart! The opening notes of fig crescendo into a metallic salty, seaweed composition. Sillage is quite strong. Was very disappointed in Womanity, as I adore Thierry Mugler's other fragrances. After 30 minutes of wear, Womanity developed into a synthetic, discordant aura reminiscent of cellophane and burned cedar chips. If you are in the market for a dark, complex fragrance to awaken the senses, Robert Piguet's Visa is a better bet.

On cards it was all about figs, but on skin, the savory gourmand caviar and sugar-salty combination outweighs the fig at times. Both compete and blend amazingly, taking turns.

This perfume talks to me throughout the day, because it has a wonderful sillage, lasting till night. I just listen to it as it evolves and evokes different emotions. I've just started my romance with a truly magical thing.

No fish, please, it's caviar that makes you feel like a million dollars, ha ha.

Well chosen name, WOMANITY (not definitely for guys)...
It has something so carnal, so female about it that it shocked me the first day. It has the sweet Mugler "finish" but it is bold and sensuous, without the innocence of Angel, a very forward statement of femininity.
It can be so arousing at times but then figs have always been known for that in history.

This Mugler is remarkable, a masterpiece, one of a kind. I am so deeply impressed. Angel was too sweet for me, and I still can't understand Alien. But I am so in love with this, and excited every time I wear it.
Try it always on your skin, and judge by yourself. Don't let others decide for you.

There's nothing fishy about that salty note, it's more like brining out the skin's natural saltiness. And I don't think this is "too" sweet unless your tolerance for sweetness is pretty low.

I love this fragrance, but would never in a million years recommend blind buying it or giving it as a gift (unless you know someone already likes it) because it is a very distinct and unusual smell that divides people's opinion. Wear this to please yourself, because you aren't going to win any popularity contests.

Today is a good day for Womanity...I still had remnants of CK 1 sprayed on after my morning shower a few hours ago, so I decided to put the 30ml bottle I rarely reach for to good use. I did 3 spritzes. Anymore and I would end up choking myself. First 3 minutes, 'Mmmm...good! It smells like ripe juicy sweet figs...with a milk-chocolate touch! WOW!'....now 30 minutes later, the mysterious milk chocolate is gone, and it's just juicy sweet figs, SWEET figs, with abit of leafiness, and just a smidge of Mugler's uniquely special 'something else'. Today I'm not getting any of the infamous salty-metal notes (some days they do punch me hard in the nose, which is why I don't reach for this scent much). My uncle and brother both complimented me as soon as they met me, and they are typical guys who don't tend to notice or care about fragrances. Yep, I'm glad I wore this today. Will I be reaching for this more in the future? Still, no, it could be a nightmare on my skin tomorrow, so I can never tell with this fickle beauty. Could it have been the CK One I sprayed on earlier today that is taming down those difficult notes in Womanity? Maybe, I will try this combo again another time. I will use up my 30ml bottle though (however long it may take), but I will not repurchase.

What a biggest weirdo ever! Couple of yars ago I tried it on my wrist, couldnt stand the smell.
I tried again, considering the fact that I disliked a lot of scents I loved, obviously my taste has change.
I tried. Wow! I DO LIKE IT. Felt good to wear it. Like something gave me a kick to go on my day and the feeling i was pretty special with extrimelly sexy and original fragrance on.
The conclusion of the year hahah, is that I perceive the scent depending on my mood, state of mind, feelings, situation in life, season, hormons! That is it. Now I am carefull with stating really strict opinions about certain perfume. It just can always change.

This was love at first sniff for me. I received a sample of it from a generous Fragrantican and the first sniff actually made my mouth water, something I've never had happen even with citrusy perfumes. Even now, just thinking of the scent I have the same experience!
It's a very difficult perfume to describe...earthy, metallic, salty, and unique all seem to fit. Beautiful also fits.
Seeing all the negative reviews here I have to say this is probably not a safe blind buy. But, it is definitely worthy of trying it yourself.
I am not a fan of Thierry Mugler perfumes and this is the first one I have been able to even tolerate. I am so happy I didn't discount it because of my past experiences with TM fragrances. Received my full bottle just this week!

How do I start with this one? I bought it without reading reviews, based on the brand, the beautiful packaging. At first spray, I felt disgusted! Too strong, not my style. Smelled like my grandmother's style. But what could I do then? I left it on my skin and it began to transform into something sweet and very fresh, cool. Very different, loud, brave! I can only wear it a couple times in a month, because it is so powerful. I wear it when I'm mad, I wear it when I need a power boost. Yes, it is feminine, but not cupcake and roses feminine. This is the scent of a strong woman who doesn't submit to a man. She is intelligent, humorous, witty, modern. She could be quite cold-hearted when she needs it. It tells other to back away, this woman is taking the stage.

Womanity eco refills just became available again finally..restock up ladies there must be an added interest in the fragrance again since its hard to find barely at stores and sites online and in stores are advising many it will be discontinued...so far there must be more of a demand since when people find out something will be discontinued they will go out of the way to make sure they grab more bottles before they do..i hope to get some more soon..i grabbed womanity and pour elles just in case..all this year you could not even get a refill on this so i thought i would update because they finally sent me an e-mail its available again but before this it was not available and i was advised to go out and grab what i can..if you really love this stuff get what you can..most places online do not sell this stuff fresh as from my experience..its better to get it directly from the Mugler website as with other top designer fragrances..thank goodness for the liquor line i think this helped generate more of an interest as well..

Womanity is merciless. It somehow manages to clash with itself, like layering done wrong, as if a little kid got a hold of her daddy's aquatic cologne, and her big sister's cinnamon body splash, then doused herself with both at once. There is a brash and unrelenting aquatic component which is flat and bitterly synthetic, not fresh. The aquatic is then paired with something light and cinnamon sugar-sweet. AQUATIC CINNAMON SUGAR? Nope.
And of course it lasts forever. No fig, no caviar, no vagina in this bottle. To say it had any of those things going on would be giving it WAY too much credit. It may be odd, but I just don't find it compelling. Womanity is a mismatched pair of socks on a job interview. Embarrassing, but easily avoidable.

Saw this today at both TJ MAXX and Marshall's. One was in a gift set. I had to try it based on all the conflicting reviews here.

Womanity started off for me very fresh with sort of green grass vibe. I never caught the lemon or grapefruit citrus that other reviewers feel in the top notes. But then I'm used to fragrances that are predominantly strong in citrus like d&g Light Blue and Clarins Dynamisante. By the time I got in my car about 20 minutes later it evolved into a very powdery sweet potpourri. Still, though, it maintained a certain airy quality. Now an hour or two later amazingly I do detect the caviar note. Though I probably wouldn't if I didn't know it was there to begin with.

Overall it's personality maintains this breathless, ultra feminine sweet, nutty, fluffy & old fashioned powdery caricature that I imagine would be conventional fare for the ladies from the 'Gone with the Wind' era. Yes! This fragrance would be perfect for those pursuing past lives regression!

I like it. A whole lot of fig, some nuttiness, and some citrus. I don't get any of the nastiness that apparently happens with some people, so I guess I'm lucky.

SUPER long-lasting and strong. One spritz only! It's so strong that I can't put my nose up to where I've spritzed it; I can only enjoy it from a distance. It's overpowering otherwise.

So many reviews mention salt. I do not understand that at all, as salt has NO SCENT! So I could theoretically say I smell salt in every single perfume ever, because salt does not smell like anything!

On a side note, the bottles are super-cool looking.

I get sweet and juicy grapefruits, loads of it. After the sweetness dies down, I get grapefuit with more rind than flesh followed by grapefruit with a bit of herbs tossed in. I'm not sure if this has to do with my chemistry, but all I'm getting is grapefuit, grapefruit and more grapefruit. No figs, no creaminess, no cavier. Just grapefruit. It's possible that now that the weather has cooled down, this is what I'm picking up, but honestly, it smells almost masculine to me. I like it. I'm just puzzled by how polarizing this is supposed to smell, and on me, it's just grapefruit.


Edited: In the height of our "Indian Summer" here, I'm finally picking up the fig in this! It's still pretty grapefruity on me. On the inital spritz, I caught the metallic scent that some people have mentioned in their reviews, but on the second whiff, it's not there. There's something about Womanity that makes me want to do an olfactory version of a "double-take" (ie: Did I really smell the caviar, or am I imagining things?). It's a little bit creamy and reminds me of the beach during summer time. It also seems like it's being discontinued by TM, which is a shame because it's quite unique.

I was so excited when I saw a promotion for this at a department store... the girl at the counter explained the bottle to me, and I just fell in love with it. I smelled it on the paper strip, it was so unconventional and complex, I sprayed some on my wrist... I couldn't put my finger on it at first, but I really disliked it, possibly by association. I live in the tropics, so it's almost always hot... later I realized what it smelled like to me - USED PANTIES. Definitely female, and I can understand that those who love females might be drawn to this scent, but it just made me feel like I needed a shower. Badly. It may have been a matter of body chemistry, because it smelled subtle and sweeter on the paper strip... I definitely cannot wear this.

I'd advise getting a tester of this before buying. The scent can turn into a sweaty mess in the summer and on certain people.

However, for me this is a beautiful winter scent. The caviar turns into a lovely animalic note on me. The fig balances it perfectly. Definitely one of my signature scents.

Bizarre concept that actually works in a saline musky way. Works for men too if you don't like florals. The only thing that spoils this for me is about 2 hours in I get a strawberry note. No thanks. I'll keep it though because I often find myself sniffing the sprayer as the un sprayed juice is so unique

I saw this perfume at the perfume store and thought it will smell good, cause Angel smells so good! But at first spray I was like Bleh !!! I wanted to throw up lol. Just joking , but I don't like this at all. Im sorry. I think it's a perfume for adults over 50 years.

Oh dear.

Mr Mugler...what are you doing?? Apart from messing with my head? When I first smelled Angel, I loathed it. I continued to loathe it for years..until one day in Winter this year changed everything and I fell head over heels in love with it (still am).

Then I was introduced to Alien. "What a hideous bottle and what a hideous name for a perfume that sounds rather feminine". Well, one sniff and HELLO! I was well and truly abducted by that purple extra terrestrial vixen (still am).

And then came yesterday. I saw Womanity on the counter, looking rather alone, unused and unloved. I remembered all the "ew, it smells like fish" and "ew, it smells like salt" and "YUCK" comments I've been reading here in reviews (and the forums) for months on end. So what did I do? I fell for the act once again :)

Projection is ridiculously impressive. Sillage is amazing. Longevity is out of this world. The bottle is my kind of art. And the scent itself? It's like a Fig tree next to the beach in Balmy, humid, Summer weather.

This is not warm to me - no way. This is not Winter to me. This is SUMMER. Fresh, aquatic, woody, Savoury but sweet, Animalic in a "I am woman hear me ROOOOAAAAR" way, metallic, a little spicy and best of all, FEMININE - which is useful considering the name of the stuff!

So in closing, Mr Mugler. You have surprisingly won me over yet again. I hope you put an end to the rumours of this one being discontinued as this woman NEEDS Womanity in her life, that's for damn sure.

Amazing scent. Nothing short of a masterpiece.

Considering the handful of notes, an amazingly complex scent!

Fresh, green, metallic, salty (not fishy!) and sweet jammy fruit, all within nano seconds of each other!

Layers very well on a coconut body butter!

Despite the name and pink colour suitable for men and woman, lots of online discounts suggest this future classic may be about to be discontinued?

Lasts well and projects nicely, quite rich and heavy so apply lightly (I douse myself liberally with many weaker scents but less is defo more here)!

Enjoy!

Thierry Mugler Womanity is another TM entry into unique and possibly trend-setting popular fragrances. It is mostly a complex fig scent - fruit, leaf, and wood more or less in order of prominence. But what makes it so unusual is the way the fig tree combines with a rather strange savory note that is indeed evocative of caviar. Many commenters call this a "salty" note, variably associated with fish, caviar, or generally the sea. Table salt and pure sea salt have no smell at all, but they taste very strong and salty taste is associated with many pungent foods: anchovies, caviar, salamis, some cheeses, seaweed, potato chips, french fries, etc. Of these various associations, I agree with Thierry Mugler in calling the note caviar. I have no idea what synthetic chemical or blend of chemicals is responsible, but it certainly is novel, at least among things that I have smelled.

Enough of the analysis - does Womanity smell good? Well, I can't decide and apparently lots of other people are similarly ambivalent. After smelling and pondering at length here is my resolution - don't get this to smell delicious or sexy or sophisticated, but possibly get this to smell mysterious or unusual, and certainly get this to experience the scent. It is pretty amazing even if you never wear it out of the home.

When I first sprayed this on I thought it was gorgeous. It was complex, warm and a bit smoky but once it dried I hated it. It smelled strongly of coconut and actually resembled Diesel Zero Plus. Very sickly and heady. Really disappointed because I loved it so much on the first spray I actually considered buying it.

I have found my signature.

EDIT: I thought 'd type out a more detailed review. I am not an expert nor as informed as lots of people on Fragrantica but for me, personality-wise, a scent that divides people's opinions so strongly into love/hate camps is almost destined to become my signature.

First of all, I love figgy scents and have been looking for a perfume to complement my favourite body butter from Korres's Fig line. Here it is. Soft, milky, a tad savoury, fresh yet heady. It is so much of everything that I am almost scared to wear it sometimes — it's not one of those traditionally feminine powdery florals that I find the easiest to wear.

People have been picking up weird notes like rotting and in a way I can see where you are coming from. It could be a different way of interpreting those notes but I smell fertile earth on an autumn morning, ready to sustain life over the winter and bring forth new life come spring. Don't be fooled by the commercial: The woman of Womanity is not a refined and retouched billboard beauty, but rather a grown woman — maybe with some wrinkles, maybe some extra pounds round the hips — with a house full of friends, art and comfortable nooks, and a heart full of life and laughter.

Perhaps this is a little more mature scent than I am comfortable wearing every day, but it is so bewildering, so full of nuance that I couldn't help but love it. At the moment I have a mini bottle and I may be needing a full-size flask sometime soon. Also, this is very different from the middle-market clean&crisp alternating with teenage sweet fragrances that everybody and their dog is churning out, which is another huge plus.

Very salty, very sweet fig; thus the 'savory' note. I've been wearing this off & on for over 2 years and on me it always lasts ALL day, even after showering, and don't spray it on cloth unless you want it there for a looong time. I get lots of compliments from women on this ("mm, I love your perfume! It smells warm and comforting."), and it's passed several boyfriend tests. Also I can literally smell it on other women from over 5 ft away, so I never spray it more than once on myself!

P.S. I do 2nd the review below though; it does have that 'ocean air' smell, maybe seaweed smelled from a distance along with all the balmy salty air. Then the heavy sweetness of a sugared fig jam. Yes, that's it. Makes it smell tasty though to me, a lover of the sweet-salty combo in foods.

When I first sprayed the bottle I thought hmmm ok that's very different. I was not sure if I loved or hated it. Definitely different and I could not figure out why? Was it because this is not the traditional Gourmand scent that has saturated the market these days? What was it about Womanity that stood out? Alas - it was upon drying that the fragrance took on a very masculine scent. What happened to Womanity? Now it's Masculinity! Big no no for me! That's all I needed to steer me away from it. It's spicey and I do smell that clove scent. I think upon spray I get the caviar also. Someone below said caviar has no scent how can you say it smells like caviar.. let me explain. It smells like the scent you get a wiff of when walking on the beach - that salty oceanic smell..not quite fishy but something that coexists with fish! - maybe a metallic scent. Nope can't like this one at all. I have a brand new purse spray with cosmetic bag and refill... PM me for a swap if interested.

I love it! I don't detect any strange notes like fish or blood.
For me it's an apricot and plum marmalade with a little hazelnut and fig of course. Special perfume, that's true, but I think in a beautiful way.:)
My choice for night and party, not for everyone and everyday.
Longevity and sillage are outstanding! It's a true bombshell.

I just bought this perfume because I remembered is trying it at a perfume store and liking it because it is so unique.

So, this time around I tried it again. The smell out of the bottle I can't decide if I like or not. Its intriguing, animalic and STRONG. When I put it on I could feel almost a candied fig and it was spicy. So much so, that it gave me a bit of a headache. After about 20 minutes, it was all fig and very sweet (sweeter than I expected), and finally after about an hour and a half it settled into a creamy, sweet and sophisticated scent. I'm still not sure this is for me. I'm not much of a sweet perfume lover.

this is a crisp, fruity and refreshing type fragrance with a unique spin... another perk is its beautifully designed bottle! not sure why there's such a negative stigma about caviar in a fragrance... i feel the note lends to the stand-out factor in this one, and leaves people sniffing you in delightful curiosity. i also found an "incense" type note in there as well (seems to be a signature in most of his fragrances). i agree this is a unique, yet simple composition, allowing each note to be in the spotlight...

also, i found the tester paper for this floating around my house, and i can still detect the fragrance lingering on it from A MONTH AGO! and, out of the tons of samples i've brought home, this is one of the few that passed the discerning, "picky boyfriend nose" test.

note: apparently within that month dillards pulled it, and hopefully macy's and other stores don't follow suit... maybe we'll be seeing this one at tj maxx in the future (like lady gaga's fame), at least in my region...

I know this review would not survive here, but smelling this dreadfull horrible "perfume" was a traumatic experience for me. Smells like rotten fish with figs. Excuse me for being honest, but under the right name, one could pee or puke into a bottle and sell it as a "luxury perfume" for a ridiculously expensive price.

Such a warm, comforting scent
I smelled this on my sister and then I tried it too. For some reason it reminds me of something my mom used to wear when I was a child,or a feeling I had as a child when she used to hold me, so the smell of it is so comforting. Its sweet, but not in a superficial kind of way, not in girlie kind of way, its savory in a subtle way, it has an elegant kick to it, makes you think of a true woman (sweet and comforting- a mother but also elegant and savory- a mistress maybe). So I guess these two would be the facades of a woman, so the name "womanity" makes sense to me.
I got compliments on it smelling different and beautiful, it has that "je ne sais quoi" that makes a true perfume unique and unforgettable.

Love on first smell, because it smells like food. I actually cooked something once that smelled exactly lke this. It's a unique smell, 'cause i never have any experience with other perfumes like this one. It actually smells like salted caramel nuts. Warm and inviting, makes me hungry.. No negative reviews for me, Overall i love it, the bottle is great, sillage is moderate, longevity is great, lasts more than 8 hrs on me. It's even still there after i wash my hands..

Sprayed this on my skin at an airport perfume store and liked it. Then read the reviews here and was confused, then went ahead and bought a small bottle online.
My verdict after wearing it all day? Unique, pleasant overall, but disappointing!!!!!

On my skin:
At first spray, candied/sweet fig mixed with a green accord. Very pleasing and unique.
Dries down quickly and the sweetness disappears almost completely. In fact, the fig fades away and after a little while is no longer detectable. It is only a top note.
After about an hour, it smells like a green accord with a small hint of salty sea air and a VERY subtle savory accord. The green accord is most salient, but it's hard to pin down because it isn't a woody smell, but more like a fresh plant smell. It's hard to describe what it smells like, but it is reminiscent of standing among fresh grasses on a hot beach in the Summer.
The perfume fades away so much after 4 hours that you can't really smell it and would have to reapply. The first time I wore it all day, I was with two friends for 8 hours in close proximity and they didn't seem to notice the scent.

In sum: it is unique, and the top note of sweet fig is delicious, but when that fades, it quickly becomes fresh green plants with subtle salt and a hint of savory that is even more subtle, which isn't bad at all, but a little too mild for me. It's disappointing that I can't smell the woods or fig throughout, which I would have preferred. I only bought 1 oz, so I will wear it until it's gone, but I'm guessing I will have to reapply throughout the day. This is not a bad scent at all, but I expected more when I read the reviews, and I wanted to be "WOWed." It's a good scent, but not amazing.

Ok so i have been trying to get this for a good deal online with no avail to it being fresh but i just wanted to give a heads up ladies that i went on Mugler's website for the US to get refills of this and i couldn't get it..even put the update e-mail no response..well when i went to Macy's to get a bottle or even refills the lady gave me this look and i said to her their discontinuing it aren't they and she said shhhh don't tell anybody my daughter loves that one too she said you will have to stock up on that or find another scent..i was like nooooo why do they do this to the great scents but if they are not selling they are not selling like Midnight Poison which they are discontinuing and i stocked up with those..it seems the fragrancenet just got some more 3.4 bottles just in but when i last ordered they ran out..thank goodness!So i am going to have to bite the bullet and buy from Mugler before they run out..Ladies stock up on this jem..perhaps by buying them they may keep it longer..i know they are going to be doing the Liqueur line with Womanity and just came out with the Womanity Aqua Chic but its just not selling as much as Angel and Alien..i would assume they are trying to do everything they can to try to make sales...stock up!

I don’t do seasons and love orientals&sweet gourmands so this was the outlier in my wardrobe: a fresh scent that I never used during winter. The projection is quite strong for the first 1.5h and definitely detectible but not overpowering after that. The gorgeous freshness lasts about 8h on me.

I am a bit surprised how polarizing this is but would be curious to know how many of the negative reviews are based on just quick tests or first impressions. I don’t get any disgusting whiffs of rotten fish or metal smells. The opening is a bit unpleasant because the seaweed-caviar saltiness is so strong, but this lasts only a few minutes. Some of the saltiness remains as an interesting undertone, but the next eight hours are just wonderful fig leaf freshness. This reminds me of a walk by the seaside: salty air, some seaweed clinging on the rocks. Beautiful!

I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a unique fresh scent and especially those who think fresh perfumes are boring. I had a 50 ml bottle and will likely buy a new one for next summer.

You know what? I dig Womanity. I dig it a lot. It's a wearable, "womanly" fragrance. I think it's kind of sexy!

What makes this scent unique to me are the caviar notes, which I love. It adds a touch of salty-ness to the figs, which does make it smell "savory" to me. Make no mistake, though, the figs are the dominant smell in this. It's just that the salty notes balance everything out nicely, in my opinion. It doesn't smell too soft or sweet.

There's a freshness and juicyness (like celery, in my opinon) to Womanity as well, which makes it very wearable for daytime, though I think it's sexy enough for nighttime wear as well. I can also see this as appropriate for all four seasons. It's a very versatile perfume in that sense. Office wear or date night; Winter or Summer ... I think it's appropriate for any time.

While I think Womanity is very wearable, it's far from boring. It smells soft, woody, salty, juicy, and kind of sweet. It's an odd combination that oddly works really well. I also don't think this is a scent that will attract younger perfume wearers.

As for the sillage, I think it's pretty good. As always with Mugler fragrances, though, you shouldn't overdo it. It'll last and stay strong throughout the day, trust me.

Been wearing this for 3 hours now and absolutely LOVE it so far!

I have actually got goosebumps a few times from inhaling deeply....I started out with a little on my wrist which opened up very citrusy sweet on me and quite quickly (within 2 hours) it had dried down to a beautiful spicy woody smell....not sure I can pinpoint fig in there and definitely no fish!! I then added a good couple of dabs to my neck and rubbed the ends of my hair into it so I could swish it about :)

Weirdly it really reminds me of a lemon scented ballpoint pen I had as a child- Sort of metallic and sweet lemon but with some added spice....pure nostalgia for me!

I'm super crazy late to the Womanity party, but here I am. And I do like it.

I can see how someone could not like this. In fact, the major aspect of Womanity for me besides its saltiness is how easy it would be to hate it. With a Passion. But passion is always moving... whether it is bad or good.

On my dry skin, it moves quickly from the highly pungent and edible opening to a salty, milky, fleshy sap scent. In my quest for a non-sweet milk perfume, I had never realize that it was right in front of me. I seriously love the warm salty cream aspect of the dry down, which for me happens in less than 2 hours. It is almost like the scent of butter. The opening might be a bit troubling, but the scent does not fail in creating emotions and for me, this is highly important.

It's been said countless times before, it has massive sillage and killer longevity. Use sparingly, for yourself and for others.

Thank you Catrina for the bottle!!

This fragrance open with strong sweet woody fig tree. one spray on your chest can make the faint heart knock out on the floor. If it is too strong for you, i suggest spray on the back of your knee. The top note stays very long time at least 4 hours, after that it smell salty , animalic and become seduced sensual complex. It work best on cold summer. Why?? I found that when Zephyr :a light wind or west wind, OR summer breeze mix with scent of womanity make this perfume smell wonderful and grab people' attention. For hot humid climate summer, it smell very disgusting and cloying. i have noticed that many guy and gay love this scent,but not women. Gay can use this one to seduce men. I don't find any fish smell in this fragrance. For the sillage and longevity are great and enormous. If you want to smell unique, choose this one. wear it on the right time and mood.

I really don't understand where this whole "smells like fish" thing comes from.

Caviar does not smell like fish. It's not like a rare delicacy...you can get it for a few dollars at any grocery store, so I don't understand why no one here knows what it smells like.

Caviar smells like vinegar and turmeric...a lot like English pickle relish. It's a very savory smell, that smells NOTHING like fish. It tastes like fish, yes, but doesn't emit a particular fishy smell.

The psychology of suggestion has permeated everyone's brains, making them swear that this fragrance smells like vaginas, which is just utterly ridiculous. I realize that everything smells differently to other people, but psychology, advertising, and emotional testimonial has a lot to do with it, in terms of swaying things past the truth.

This fragrance is a sharp, tart, FIG FIG FIG FIG FIG overload, with marine-esque salty overtones from the caviar.

The only reason you're smelling fish, vaginas, and sweaty genitals is because people have suggested it and it's in your brain, making you THINK you smell it.

I first smelled this in 2010 and immediately hated it. Not because it 'smelled like fish', or because it smelled bad in general, but there was just something that irked me about this scent right away. For three years I really disliked it, but every couple of months I felt compelled to test it; maybe just to see if I still hated it. The past few weeks I've tentatively started to enjoy Womanity.

I'm still not sure if I will ever fall in true love with this scent, but I want to have it! Something that just keeps me coming back is obviously interesting enough to add to my collection.

I've experienced the metallic note, but not to an extreme extent. I don't think this ever really smells like fish, but the saltiness and the metal do combine for a short while to slightly resemble a blood note. The metallic note adds to the oceanic feel of the ozonic, aquatic accord that makes up the heart of the perfume. I get a very distinct hazelnut note throughout the entire lifespan of the scent.

Overall, I think it's very feminine while not being typically sweet. After three years of rejecting this perfume it finally snared me! That's never happened to me before, and just for that I would recommend it to others :)

I'm starting with a 10 ml bottle, we'll see how it goes from there...

UPDATE: Yup, I think it's love! Here's hoping that the drawn out courtship translates into a longlasting love :)

Strange, but I think I like it. I can smell the metallic/fishy odors that some have mentioned from the bottle,but not on my skin. On skin, the first note I pickup is kind of a woody saltwater (maybe that's what caviar smells like, I have no idea...) and after 5-10 minutes it smells like heavy fig with a wee bit of salt. And yes, it's a strong scent. Use sparingly!

I love this!!! It's one of the most unique and beautiful fragrances I've managed to find over the course of many years. In a world dominated by floral-fruity frags, this one is completely different!

Womanity is both warm and cold, which is very weird and unique. I just love the fig notes mixed in with watery-salty caviar. Womanity smells just like sea water and burnt skin. It's very carnal, incredibly senzual.

It's incredible how 4!! simple notes can create such a complex olfactory effect! I was blown away by this at my first sniff. And because of its unique characteristics, I find Womanity suitable for all seasons. But please, please: aply this with a light hand, especially in warmer months. Otherwise you'll get a major headache!

i desperately wanted to like this fragrance, and have tested it many times on both paper and skin and have always been put off.

the bottle is really pretty, and unique and i love the way that the fragrance sounds, but it just doesnt translate. It might just be my personal taste but i didnt find the aquatic sea water/seaweed metal notes something that i would enjoy smelling throughout the day. It smells figgy, not sweet, it is delicate and slightly tart in smell. and i really enjoyed that element of the fragrance, but its just that caviar scent that drove me crazy.

Waterfront vacation in a bottle!

If you can imagine having brunch on a waterfront patio, while getting ocean sprayed, you have Womanity. I like it a lot. I definately get the maple syrup that another poster mentioned. Sweet and salty-no doubt. So when you pick up the shirt you wore to brunch, you smell the ocean water and your french toast, with butter and syrup!

I don't get the metal when I sprayed it on my skin. I get this wonderful figgy note with some watery (but not fishy) notes mixed in. It's very nice smelling. Then it dries down to this lovely floral fig and fruity notes. I love this. It smells like a woman should, but it oddly works on me, and I'm a guy. I recieved a ton of compliments when I had this on. People didn't even know it was a womans fragrance! Lol.

At the first spritz you get a huge blast of metal. Like you know when you would go to the park and hang on the monkey bars and then after you got off and smelled your hands they would smell like metal? Yeh well thats what the opening of womanity smells like. Although this is very unique for a perfume it definitly doesnt give a good first impression. After the sharp, metallic accord settles down you are left with a sweet aroma of fig. Its smells kinda jam-y but not sticky just jam-y. I would have to say although it is not my favorite of the Theirry mugler perfumes, its a very unique scent. I think that if you were to mix or layer this perfume with something else. It could smell amazing and take away the sharpness of that mettalic opening.

For a long time I considered Womanity to be the red-headed stepchild of the Mugler fragrance oeuvre. I found the fragrance so off-putting on blotter paper that I never took the opportunity to test it on my skin, until now.

I have definite problems with the first 5-10 minutes of this scent. It is intensely aquatic and figgy, with an almost unpleasant sense of wetness. The balance of sweet and savory is unstable and confusing to the nose. The drydown on skin is much more amicable, however. The aquatic sensation mellows out, leaving us with a sweeping fig scent. It is both sporty and elegant. I can imagine Ariel from The Little Mermaid wearing this, even though wearing fragrance underwater would be particularly useless. Sillage is very satisfying and the wear time is solid.

Even though Womanity is not particularly to my taste, it is worth taking a deeper look past the difficult onset of this fragrance. It is still not something I would wear, but I applaud Mugler for taking a risk and being daring. It's also one of the best bottle designs I've ever seen.

Germany you are so right...the smell was metal like and fishy...so now I have no doubt.

By the way I tested it on the paper so I have no idea how it smells on the skin.

I have tried this frag 3 times now and gave it away every time. I wanted to like so bad and tried even the summer aqua chic. I returned it the next day. It's not a pretty smell. It's an odd smell and its not chemistry because its just odd on paper clothes and in room when sprayed. It's not sexy in my opinion at all. It's muglers worst creation . And I love Mugler. It's not really awful. There are worse smells. But it's just not good. The smell is cold and metal like. Like a spoon or fork in the mouth. That has salt water on it. Something distinctively odd about this one.

Update
I like it again. I have this same thing going with angel. I love it so much then draw away from it. But all in all this is an oddly good fragrance. I like that it's different and fresh to the end. No base note here. Just freshness by the ocean. Sea breeze fragrance. Who but Mugler can bottle such unique stuff !
I also, if not more, like the EDT. It's sweeter less salty with strawberries.

I sprayed several perfumes today on paper strips and at home I was trying to figure the scents out . One of them was very overpowering and in fact I could smell no scent except that one, and I am afraid the smell was not good..I hate to say that but it was one of the worst perfume I have ever smelled in my life. Sorry but I guess it was this one based on the reviews here...maybe still I am wrong...so test it before buying it!

This was a blind buy. I wore this yesterday and it blew me away. This is how I wanna smell. It reminds of Angel Alien a little, but this is not a heavy fragrance. The original Angel gave me a headache so this is a nice change. I get a grapefruit smell. I recommend this sprayed on the skin instead of just your clothes.

I, like many on here, was afraid to purchase Womanity. Though no one said it smells like Angel, I thought it might and if you'd read my reviews for Angel and Angel Violet, you know my husband hates it with a passion!

I saw some at TJ Maxx for a good price and bought the 1.7 edp. The first spray was heaven to me! I adore the top notes sooo much! Incense with fruit. It comes on strong, even with a fairly light spray.

Within 10 mins, the potency has died down a little and I smell the figs and the incense. Within 15 mins, I detect the figs with the fig leaves and the incense.

After about an hour and half, I get this kind of funky scent that I cannot fully describe. It is kind of like maple syrup but could be nuttiness. It floats around in the air and makes me feel a little off balance. Whatever the middle note is, I can see why some could hate this, but I don't. I hold out until the real dry down (about 4 hours later on the skin, not clothes), which smells faintly like salty figs!

I'm going back tomorrow to see if there is another bottle left! I love this juice!!

Oh, and my husband didn't say a word to me about it. Yay!!

Womanity's beguiling blend of juiciness and sparkle is very fresh and bright. It has a lightly sweet nectar-like appeal. The fruit is tempered by the caviar's saltiness--which I find to be quite subtle. In the background is a nuttiness that also helps to ground the scent. This is all topped off by a metallic ting that seems most prevalent during the opening. I appreciate Womanity's uniqueness.

The scent does not change all that much throughout the wearing. After it has been on for a while, I find that it becomes clean-smelling, almost citrus. I'm taking a risk mentioning this, but, once in a while, the later stages of Womanity smell a *tiny* bit like the original OFF! insect repellant, and I truly mean that in a good way! It's actually a smell that I really like (I know. I'm crazy). Please don't let that turn you against trying Womanity.

The scent is very long lasting, and the bottle is very Thierry--which is to say unique and fun.

I have tried, really and truly tried, to like Womanity. I love the rest of Mugler’s perfumes (those that I’ve smelled), I love the sweetly malevolent bottles (which look like they might have been designed by a goddaughter of HR Giger), I love the Pallas Athena-like helmet on the woman in the video ad, I love the chutzpah of associating the smell of blood and caviar with “woman.” The only thing I cannot love is the perfume itself.

On me, it opens with a very distinct bite of formic acid. Don’t ask why. It just smells like black ants taste (those of us who’ve had the misfortune of chomping down into a ripe, say, guava with a jumble of black ants at its crown will know!). It then becomes a strong and oddly sweet miasma of spiced ham or ripe meat or those flattened, blood-colored wafers of dried, salted plum that are sold by the gram in Chinese stores. Savory, briny and sweet all combined, and if I breathe the odor in too long I do get the sensation at the back of the throat of half-drowning in the ocean and having imbibed too much salt water down the wrong way.

I remember testing this fragrance at a Sephora … how I had ten other fragrance strips in a fan in one hand, and Womanity in the other hand, held as far away as possible from the others, because it was strong enough to drown out 2 flankers of Chanel Allure pour Homme, Clinique Happy Heart, a Britney Spears, one of the new Chloes … combined! This stuff is JUST TOO STRONG. Or rather, I am hyper-sensitive to it, to something in it.

On my skin a tiny bit lasts for hours – call it Tenacity! -- and is domineering and distracting. It doesn’t help me work, nor to relax: it is like a leather corset that forces me into an unnatural, albeit more sexually interesting, state.

I've tried this one for the first time today and I cannot believe how much hate it's getting. This smells exactly like the notes listed and does not have enormous sillage at all. I think it's tame compared to Angel's sillage.

I thought I would hate this but I like it and it doesn't smell fishy on my skin. I wouldn't say it's fresh, it's salty and intriguing. It needs to be tested on skin before buying but I wouldn't be afraid of it at all. Especially if you have an idea what the notes smell like. :)

Wow, guys, talk about being underwhelmed. After reading all these reviews and trying Alien, which WAS a weird, strong fragrance with incredible sillage, I was excited to try Womanity. I picked up a bottle of this yesterday and was completely underwhelmed. It smells completely normal compared to the odd-smelling Alien. This smells like fig leaf, the fig fruit itself, and ocean breeze. There is a slight metallic scent to it, but it's not overwhelming. It's fruity smelling and "green". It's definitely NOT fishy. Seriously, have you people smelled fish at all? It smells fresh and clean, honestly. The only weird bit about it is the slight metal smell like licking a metal spoon. The scent radiates out about a foot, but isn't a sillage-bomb like Alien. I should note that this is potent stuff, so if it gets on a shirt or jacket be prepared for it to permeate and not come off until you wash the clothing. This stuff lasts. I actually quite like it. I'd stop being so scared of this and give it a try. It's not really that weird at all.

Wow, this is definitely a fragrance that could help Stella get her groove back! Holy Smoke! This is HOT! There is a raw sensuality and sexuality with this one.

The movie "Eat, Pray, Love" comes to mind. This fragrance embodies a spiritual, sensual, and sexual evolution of a woman in her prime.

Fig with a woodsy base that grounds with sandalwood. The special blend of ingredients is totally unusual. Womanity is really a great fragrance! It has a very interactive smell to it that almost dances on the skin. It is hard to describe, I've never really smelled anything that has that type of chemical reaction to it when it hits the skin. I love that part about Womanity. (You won't know what I'm talking about - until you actually spray this on your skin - and see what I'm saying).

Sorry guys, but I'm not smelling ANYTHING "Fishy" in this ingredient blend. And for heaven's sake... NO... this does not smell anything like a vajajay! LOL... COME ON!!! Who ever suggested this, needs to detox their nose!

--------------

This perfume hints at intimacy and sensuality - the notes in this fragrance are the very definition of "sexual foreplay".

This is NOT the Victoria's Secret variety of bubblegum pink type fragrances that line the walls of their stores and "try" to be sexy, tempting, and come off as a tease... this is the REAL DEAL. "Sexy" in a bottle.

----------------

This fragrance runs a full range of reviews. People either LOVE THIS
STUFF - or CAN'T STAND IT!!! And all of this will depend entirely on your individual chemistry and whether or not this works with you, or turns against you. Best advice here... try it. See how this wears on you the first hour - then the rest of the duration. It may change on your skin as you wear this longer. The only way to really KNOW - is to try this stuff and see for yourself! Your chemistry will not lie. Either you will Love it, or Hate it! Check it out - and just see.

-----------------

My Fragrantica.com friend sent me a sample of this to try with two other stronger women's fragrances. This stuff is pretty AWESOME!!!

On my skin, this is starting out with a strong incense/sandalwood type warm alluring smell that really draws you in. I'm comparing it with Tom Ford's Black Orchid - and Kenzo's L'Elephant... so it is interesting to see how each of these sets up in the beginning - and how they carry through to the final dry down.

In the first 20 minutes of wear, Womanity is woody, warm, and has a hint of musk that grounds the base notes of the fragrance. The overall effect of this - is a well grounded lower alto chord, which hits the range of fragrances that I normally choose when I am picking a signature fragrance for myself.

The notes in this are much better on my skin than Estee Lauder's Sensual, which I have tried - but that sandalwood turns on my skin. The Womanity variety is smelling more like a combination of incense and musk, which really draws me in.

A lot of the reviews mention the caviar in this, but I'm not smelling that. Maybe I'm not sure what caviar really smells like - but this ON ME, is smelling a lot like incense. I can understand where people are coming from with their reference to a "beachy smell". This does smell like a day on the beach sunbathing with a pina- colada in your hand, coconut based suntan lotion slathered head to toe, and a straw big rimmed hat! I can totally grasp THAT image with this!

20 minutes into the wear of this one - and this has a whole "agenda" on its mind. This fragrance should come with a WARNING LABEL... "This is sexy and HOT on. Wear with discretion". I can totally see why men would like this. From my experience, the fragrances that draw the most compliments from men on my skin - all have a lower register full bodied chord that has a grounding smell to it. The ones that they compliment me most on, typically are in a range where they could be more easily used as a unisex fragrance... in a range where it would be believable that this could be a man's cologne or a lower range woman's perfume chord.

This is not just a "tease" - this fragrance reminds me of a bold, almost aggressive clonk on the head - drag 'em back to the cave... - type fragrance. This is NOT for wimps. I can totally see why the advertisement has a tribal type quality to it. This fragrance is a RAW Sexuality... it is sensual and magnetic, rather than merely alluring. This has "fire" to it, the kind of thing that you notice when you are watching a fire dance in the fire place or around a fire pit or campfire. This fragrance IGNITES!

There are subtleties in the complexity of this and the way that it interacts with the skin that reminds me of the magical quality that happens when you are looking into an opal and see all of the many colors dancing and engaging with the eye. There is a subtle kaleidoscope of ingredients that emits a burst of sexuality, not merely a hint. It would definitely send a strong message to the opposite sex, exactly what is "on your mind" ; )

This could definitely be used as a unisex fragrance - and the same with Kenzo's L'Elephant. I feel that the scent would wear much differently with the chemistry of a man vs a woman. This could definitely be something very sexy and HOT - on either sex.

I will see how this wears and report back!

-------------

The only "catch" to this one, it lasted about 4 hours on my skin. I live in a dryer climate - so this may be partially the reason why fragrances disappear so fast. But hey, if you really like this fragrance, you could always carry a smaller sample with you and refresh as needed. This fragrance may definitely be worth retouching. It is really something else, entirely. I've never smelled anything quite like this one!

If you like this fragrance, then you may like to try Gucci's Premier. It has some similar qualities and lasted about 2-4 hours on my skin. Both smell great the first hours they are sprayed.

Fragrances in the same ball park as Womanity: Kenzo L'Elephant is in this same family of fragrances with Womanity, if you remove the musk in Womanity, you may like the fragrance Timeless by Avon. All of these will fit a woman that likes to wear stronger fragrances. Youth Dew and Knowing by Estee Lauder are both in a similar family of depth and strength - but both lack the strong notes of musk that Womanity has in its base notes.

I stopped in my local perfume shop over the weekend looking for possible Father's Day gifts and the guy who works there finally talked me into trying this one as I was on my way out. I'm so glad he did! I've been curious, but was petrified regarding the caviar. The caviar doesn't smell fishy at all, but brings this great salt water element to the scent. It's without question, the most interesting perfume I've ever experienced. The fiance and I had a few different samples, but this is the one we kept coming back to. The strangest thing was that he was really into it! If you've read any of my other reviews, you know that he's very finicky when it comes to fragrances. It's a scent that you just don't know whether you like it at first. You later figure out that you don't dislike it, but you keep going back for another sniff, like "whaaaaat is going on here?!" The guy gave me a paper sample for me to take with me and it outlasted the scents of the other women's samples (Dazzle, Vince Camuto,& Angel) After an hour, it had this very distinct note of ozone to it, which was so intriguing. I'm going to have to get a small tester bottle to see if I like it on myself. I would wear this to an industrial or goth club for a night out.

Tried this perfume on my skin today, and what I can say.... Certainly its an exquisite juice. To me it was a love. This starts fresh and fruity with the figs, then suddently you have the salty and sour caviar notes. I like salty notes because they remember the place where I come from, my childwood on the beach summer house and everything. But on me the drydown it was just about green and figs. Its certainly a daytime frangrance for hot summer days when you just want to remember the taste of vacation. Its fresh, its sophiticated, its sweet and unique. Just sad with the lasting power on me that was about 3 or 4 hours.

ps: my boyfriend loved it, so I think its a must with the boys hahaha

Update!!!! AS yall already know,I LOVE this fume!! I wore it this weekend. My back had been killing me so, I had to apply some backrub.U know what that smells like!UGH!!! WE went out of town and I worried people would find my scent offensive BUT<
On ME,this fume is salty and very sweet.Smells like something u would want to eat!!The salty,caviar aspect makes me feel like Im on a beautiful beach,sun shining,birds flying,gentle breeze,tropical drink in hand as I sit under a palm tree.An experience more than a fume.

To sum it all up,Womanity isn't like ANY other fume.Its unique unto itself just as Jungle L Elephant is one of a kind.Like NO OTHER! It has become my new signature scent and I pray he never stops making it cause NOTHING could even come close to replacing it!

Sillage>10

This is definitely not for everyone, like all Muglers it's a love/hate situation. In the beginning, it's sharp and briny (the caviar makes its presence known) and a bit rocky somehow, like wet jetty stones. Then the fig notes arrive, kind of like someone mixed a bit of seawater into a jar of fresh syrupy fig jam. It's a sweet/salty mix of equal proportions. Definitely strange but intriguing in the way it dares to be a bit offensive. I appreciate it for the oceanic references it triggers in my brain, but I definitely use it sparingly.

When it initially hits the skin, the mixture of caviar and fig blasts out. It feels weird, and to some extent, nauseating. However, the salty note mellows into a light touch after a while and it becomes a fresh fig-theme scent. It's fruity sweet with a hint of saltiness, crisp and sparkling. I feel like experiencing gastronomic delight. As many suggested a certain comparison, I can understand the liaison but don't think it smells exactly like that and don't think it's that provocative in purpose. To me, it's a woody-fruity fragrance out of convention, a fresh scent to rock with all year round. The sillage is quite good and the longevity is around 10h. However, I do suggest test before buying as the caviar note may be a tricky part.

Love this fragrance. Sure, it is a bit unusual with notes like fig and caviar but that's what makes it memorable. It is not offensive, it is like an artistic relative that is a little off the top but you know that she is worth a fortune and her "style" is just a little ahead of it's time. That's what you get with Womanity. A scent that you wont recognize on everyone else. A scent that unravels and is extremely feminine and requires a confident woman. Think Tresor, Sicily, KL, My Sin etc. all bold fragrances. Men love this scent, it's mostly women creating a stir because of the caviar ingredient but Thierry Mugler knows his stuff and a nice way to try this is with the lotion and work your way up to the fragrance.

I almost felt sorry for Womanity, why she was bullied by so many negative reviews? I must say I really like Thierry Mugler and I know you shouldnt't except anything ordinary from him but for me Womanity was a no.

It smells rough, salty and dirty. It reminds me of those times I used to go to the beach in Spain, where my grandmother lived. I used to swim there for hours and when I came out of the water my grandma was waiting for me with food. We had our lunch at the beach and lay in the sun for hours. Womanity smells exactly like my skin after a dive in the ocean. Like dried up sea salt and sand. It's kinda nostalgic but unfortunately it smells a bit too dirty for my taste. I prefer clean scents.

I merely picked up the bottle to test it, but the bottle top was loose and it leaked onto my fingers as I fiddled with the spray nozzle. The initial smell was enough to make me queasy! It didn't get any better, and I couldn't wait to wash it off! Thankfully I didn't spray it, otherwise I would need to get my coat dry-cleaned, as it was I had to get to the bathroom quickly to wash it off! This is not a 'perfume' in my book.

On my skin, this smells really bad! A mix of very strong salt water, caviar and a little bit of rotten something. I had to wash it of very quickly!

I recommand you try this on your skin before buying. Cause this is not a "normal" perfume!

ok, i have a small spray sample of this and right now i'm not exactly sure about it, but i think i like it. however, my daughter does not. she smells generic avon frgrances as well as, her words, old lady perfume. i smell antiseptic at the start, then a slight sweetness, then chlorine. but yet, there is something about it i like. hmmm perplexing for sure. i do not smell fish, feminine products or any type of salt at all.
womanity is certainly for women, it is as complex as we are.
the word is still out on this for me, but i'm leaning towards at least liking it. will i buy a big bottle? hmmm i'm just not sure.

update: i decided to buy a bottle and i'm very happy with it. 2 sprays are definitely enough for the day.

The only reason I ended up with tiny bottle of Womanity because I bought a set with three mini bottles that included Angel, Alien and Womanity.
Before I sampled it read all kind of things about this scent-that it smelled like fish, lady parts, that it was the grossest thing in this universe. I am happy to report that I don’t find it disgusting at the least. However…ah yes, there is a but..
Mugler fragrances are very unique, without fail, and Womanity doesn’t dissapoint.. Its the far the most strange fragrance I have ever worn. I think that it should have been called Alien(and Alien called Womanity) but I digress. Its fruity, aquatic and figey(I know there is no such word hehe) at the same time. Yet, it’s salty. Yes, fruity and salty together. It’s a not a sweet scent which is probably why I decided it wasn’t my cup of tea. I think it smells like ocean water with some fruit scattered over it.
Not for me, but a very different and unique scent with excellent lasting power. And bottle is very beautiful as well

Ah, Womanity. I swore I would never sample you. After all; smelling like metallic, sweaty genitalia wasn't high on my wishlist. Alas, I couldn't resist any longer. I had to try you. I HAD to see what all the fuss was about.

All I have to say is... genitalia?!?

Womanity obviously agrees with my chemistry... huzzah!

I immediately smell fig. In fact, I immediately smell leaves. The fig leaf is definitely pronounced. Overall it smells quite astringent. Have you ever eaten a slightly under-ripe Persimmon? Or accidentally bitten a Banana skin? You know that weird feeling you get in your mouth - all dry and fuzzy? THAT feeling is what Womanity smells like to me.

What I assume is the caviar note is emerging as a blast of sea spray.

So, that's Womanity. Fruity, leafy, astringent and slightly oceanic. Last time I checked, my lady bits didn't smell like that! :)

I own Womanity from the very beginning. Its a very strong perfume with personality, a super summer bomb from Mugler. It is very unique aroma with a blend of just so few notes, and yet it is a masterpiece for me. I own several Mugler perfumes but this one is "something else". This extraordinary unique aquatic (sea) smell makes you feel it is always an exotic summer. It last super long especially on your clothes (many days). What can I say more. Buy it just for yourselves and only!!

Womanity is salty and sweet. Smells really exciting because it works on the skin and smells different on each one.

This must be a love it or hate it scent. Its odd. I get none of the notes listed. On me, this smells like a tin can. I get none of the fishy aroma some others get, thankfully, but none of the woody or fig notes either. Just a tin can. I guess that is the metallic note people mention. On drydown, this is slightly more tolerable, but only slightly. It ends up smelling like salty sea air. I don't want to smell like a tin can or like salt, so this is a pass for me. Apparently on some people, this smells terrific. I am not one of those people. This is a dislike for me.

I'm sooo glad I tried it. I was tempted to blind buy it, and I'm happy I didn't.
It's not my type of scent. It is different, I've never smelled anything even remotly similar. It is strong, leaves a trail of fragrance behind.
Fragrance itself - I think I'd say it's fresh, but not citrusy fresh, more aquatic fresh. There is a bit of salty, metallic feeling to it.
I just wouldn't be able to wear it. Didn't wash it off, left it to develop (pretty linear on me), but I didn't enjoy it at all. I will not be getting a bottle for myself,
I'll probably give it a go if a few months to see if I like it better.

I purchased a sample of 3 vials on ebay,out of sheer curiousity. I've been on a perfume bender for a couple of weeks,since I found this wonderful site,and after reading so many reviews about it smelling like a woman's private parts,i was greatly intrigued.had to try it,just to see if it really did.
I received my sample and immeadiately dabbed it on my wrists. OMG so wonderful!Its fig heaven! one of my all time favorite scents is Brown Sugar and Fig from Bath and Body Works,I've had that as a staple in my scent wardrobe for at least 8 years,maybe longer.It's one of the few scents I always got complimented on.It's warm and inviting,and always makes me feels all cozy.
Womanity is like that scents sexy older sister.It's predominately fig,but has a zesty,spicy note,that makes it feel incredibly sexy.That could be the caviar,I wouldn't know,never had caviar and probably never will! lol

I didn't receive as many compliments as I did with bs&f,but I will say that I felt confident and sexy all day,and the dry down is sweet and woody,with the fig becoming almost creamy,like figs in sweet cream.
I didn't waste any time,within a day or two purchased a one oz bottle,and will definitely keep this as a staple in my scent wardrobe for many years to come.I highly recommend if you like figgy scents!

Most people can't smell their own BO until it gets pretty strong. So those who love Womanity should probably have someone with a great sense of smell determine if the fishy / BO notes really go away in 30 minutes or your nose just gets used to it. With all the hormonal changes women have, the chance this will smell like fermented BO is too much for me to wear this anywhere. I can create "sweaty vajayjay" on my own so no need to buy it. :-) I guess it could smell like heaven once I put it on my skin but there are far too many other options. Only occasion I can see wearing this is for 'street walking' when you're trying to quickly attract men.

Apparently, almost everyone seems to hate this perfume... I, on the other hand, LOVE IT!!! This has such unique smell and it lasts aaallll day. A couple of hours after dry down I get this lovely soft, sweet smell that I can't stop sniffing.
This is my favorite from Thierry Mugler. It was definitely love at first sniff for me...
This is definitely NOT for everyone, though, as it's very unconventional and different from anything that's out there. I love Womanity and Womanity loves me so it's a win-win situation.

This perfume makes my stomach turn. I'm trying to think of something nice to say, but I really can't. Now, I love salt on my food. I'm a total salt-aholic. And to ME, this fragrance SMELLS like salt. But not in a pleasant way. Kind of like the way a bathing suit would smell after swimming in a dirty ocean, and was then hung to dry out near a fishy bay. The fact that it has caviar notes in it, and is called womanity, makes me uncomfortable. As MisterCrazyLeg said (which I was thinking, but didn't know if I should say it), it does kind of smell the way a vagina would smell after being washed with some weird fig bodywash. I feel like I'm letting my imagination run wild here, and I guess that just proves this perfume to at least be INTERESTING, because it has made me think so much.
Nevertheless, I can't stand it. I felt nauseous the first time I smelled it. I got it on my hand after spraying it on a test strip, and couldn't run to wash it off any faster. Props to anyone who has the guts to wear it, and even more so to anyone who could make this smell nice. I know there has to be someone out there who's pH would somehow react well with this, but it's certainly not going to be me.

I bought this today at TJ Maxx for less than $30. So I figured if I didn't like it I could resell it without losing much. I sprayed on my arm and Immediately all I smell is metal - sharp aluminum and steel. :(( Not impressed at this point at all. So I decided to re sniff my ATM after I got home and WOW the metal has dissipated into something much softer but not altogether "womanity". But I am being to like this... For me it is true to a woman's core personality. Some women can be tough as metal on the outside but once you get past that part of her, she is as complex as the perfume itself.

Second review: this fragrance used to scare me, but now am addicted!
Such a light sweet smell that is different from the typical vanilla type...... I love and crave the saltiness of this on some days now..... I absolutely do not get any fishy/metal note.....
Yes it's strong on first spray, but it quickly settles........
I was told I smell fresh and springy w this a few days ago (random comment from male friend) out of the blue...... So it's not just me becoming used to it, it really does give off sweet/aquatic/salty/fresh wafts.........
For reference, I do like sweet scents in genral, Dior addict was my winter favourite (still is a favourite), womanity will be spring/summer. :)
Hope this helps...... Summary advice: try on skin and let it settle for 5minutes..... Mmmmmmmmmmm..... :)

I discovered the wonders of aromatherapy/meditation with this perfume.
My first impression upon smelling it on a test strip passing by a counter was "eh, not for me". It wasn't too memorable or strong.
After reading the reviews here, I bought several test vials to give it a fair chance...to let it unfold.
I'm glad that I did.
After about half an hour I could smell a pleasant mix of figs, wood tones, and a slight oceanic salty undertone. It was like being in a forest located by a beach.
But what REALLY took me by surprise was the overwhelming sense of calm that came over me as the scent unraveled. I closed my eyes and began to meditate by instinct. I entered a deep, meditative trance basically. It was very soothing.
The next day I did some research on the correlation between perfume and mediation (which is called "aromatherapy". Doh. I should've known that ahead of time).
Basically, from my understanding, the odor molecules in perfumes stimulate the amygdala, hippocampus, and other parts of the Limbic system and the olfactory bulb in the brain (or something like that. Sorry, I'm not a Psychology major). It affects your mood, hormones, heart rate, emotions, etc...
Pretty cool stuff. I guess this perfume, out of all the ones I've tried, just happened to mesh well with my brain chemistry.

This perfume smells kind of like blood. Metallic, bitter, and I couldn't put my finger on it but the reviewer below put a name to the mystery. I also smell the iron note. Raw meat, butter, and figs on a cracker. That's what I smell. This is definitely a strange one.

Based on so many discussions i tried it on my skin today . The central note was definitely not of conventional sweet/nice/pretty/clean/classic sorts, instead, it smells somewhat almost like there's iron in it...interestingly, it rather depends on one's reception about it, if you detect or amplify the "iron" part in it, then it's terrible and nauseating, but if you're able to let the particular note blend in with others, then this can sing magnificently and beautifully.
my problem with Womanity is that it's risky, because it's also a heavy one and stays on for a long time. So if one's rather sensitive or enjoy the delicacies(civilization?) from botanicals, don't invest on this.

edit: the backnotes are certainly great(berry-fig finally even out the iron), wonder if there's a light version!
2nd edit: the central note also resembles tarragon btw.

As with most Mugler frags, Womanity is unconventional and a bit strange. Reading the notes, one is slightly reticent to agree that yes, this will be a definite win. However, if your chemistry agrees with it, you will be more than pleasantly surprised. I really didn't think that fig and caviar would be at all attractive, but when I saw a bottle of Womanity on sale at a significant discount, I decided to give it a try (and resell it on ebay if it didn't work!).

Unlikely though this combination may seem, Womanity is definitely an achievement for Thierry Mugler. He's managed to bottle the essence of female sexuality and power in such a way as to convey the raw animal nature of a woman without losing sight of her refinement and femininity. On me this smells of spiced, aquatic fig and heady woods, and it is just amazing. I am so very glad I took a risk on Womanity. Highly recommended!!

My all time favorite scent! Beautiful, mysterious and sexy. I get countless compliments when I wear this, from men and women of all ages! I've had men stop me while with my husband and ask what I'm wearing and reply with "I must buy this for my girlfriend!" After reading all the reviews clearly this scent only flatters a certain skin/chemistry.

I was petrified to try this frag as the reviews made me believe that it was fishy, that it smelt of sweaty body odour and that it was too horrible for words. This is a divine creation by the house of Mugler, yet again a genius scent has been created by the master.
I adore this scent, to me it is sweet and fresh at the same time and unlike the other Mugler scents, which can be rather heavy and in your face, this one is light and addictive. It is gourmand without smelling like a chocolate box, fresh without being sharp and light enough to wear any place and any time. I love this and am rushing out to buy myself the biggest bottle of perfume that I can. As with all Mugler frags, the longevity is amazing and the sillage is fairly close to the skin on this one.
Mugler frags are very much dependent upon your body chemistry and if you are incompatible with the fragrance then they smell dreadful, there is no grey with Mugler frags, its black or white.

The smell of sex. Not a full-on vagina smell, but like someone else said, the smell of arousal. Like walking into a room where a couple just had sex. Mixture of adrenaline, hot skin, musk, and bodily fluids. Not dirty smelling, but it is what it is. Sort of nutty too. Can't imagine wearing this day to day. Or at all really. I guess everyone's tastes are different. And noses.

Controversial, es amor u odio, sin intermedios.
Este es mi perfume, no se si es el aroma que más me gusta,pero si se que al combinarse con mi piel es único, no se parece a nada, se distinguen los higos, y quizas sea el aroma salado lo que lo hace diferente al no ser una nota que se encuentre comunmente en otras fragancias, otra es Biotherm eau oceane ,en la que no me termina de convencer (demasiado salado).
Si sos una mujer tímida....no uses Womanity, está reservada llevarla con personalidad.
Una de las pocas fragancias que volví a comprar al terminar el frasco.

I wanted to try this scent. I really did. The notes sounded amazing, and the love-hate reviews only excited my imagination. So I went to my local House of Fraser determined to try it on my skin. Found the Thierry Mugler counter, picked up the tester and smelled the cap. And I just couldn't press the valve to spray it on me. I just couldn't. It smelled revolting, exactly like the feminine natural odours others here are describing, mixed with rotting seaweed. Maybe I'm just too much of a coward for this perfume, I don't know... I still want to try Womanity The Taste of Fragrance though, as it might be more civilized and easy to at least spray on my skin to start with...

Edit: finally tried this on my skin. Yes, I do hate it after all. Metallic-sweet-salty vagine like smell. No.

One of the most controversed fragrances ever, I think. I know a lot of people who dislikes this. Me ? I ABSOLUTLY LOVE IT ! I know 2 or 3 women in my entourage who wear this and I'm in love with them, olfactory speaking. This is my favorite woman fragrance by far ! (with Magnifique de Lancôme, in a fruity way)

I was very curious about this based on reviews. Tried it today:

On paper: yuck, strong smell, weird, but still wanted to try on skin

On skin: first minute: still a bit weird but better than on paper
After 15 minutes: sweet notes kick in, smelling really yummy
After 30-45 min: wow, I like this, it is so different, I find it delicious/ pleasant, sweet ( I'm not good at notes but am guessing the fig)
After about 1-2 hours: less sweet, and it reminds me of another fragrance.... It took me a while to figure it out..... After couple hours smells like davidoff cool water on me..... And I know that smell because I used to wear it many years ago.... It does not smell completely like cool water, but it strongly reminds me of that. It does not smell like that if you stick your nose in your skin, but rather the wiffs caught by moving my wrists around,

Conclusion: I like it. First spray is a bit scary but then becomes deliciously sweet ( but not nauseating like manifesto or vie est belle) , then dries down to I'm guessing people describe as aquatic smell. Very unique, really like it.

Seasons: could definitely work for summer. In fact I will most likely purchase this for summer. In winter I prefer Dior addict and heavier/smokier style perfumes.

Other notes: definitely try on skin if this piques your interest, and wait out the first 5 minutes. Bottle is ok, I'm not a bottle collector, they all sit in the dark in my closet so bottles in general don't pique my interest, the juice itself is selling point for me.

Also, all the other bodily smell allusions in other reviews, I honestly couldn't smell anything like that. But I understand other reviewers have diff chemistry w perfumes etc. no fishy notes either, just the slightly salty aquatic notes in dry down.

So hugely relieved I finally satisfied my curiosity about this scent, thanks to a sample I got from another fragrantician... I get mostly green fig and no sweetness here, embedded in something vaguely savoury woody and undefinable to my nose, if it weren't for reading the gazillions of reviews saying it smells like human body whatever.... I am coming to the conclusion that probably none of Thierry Mugler's creations seem right for me. This one stands apart for not being artificially sweet and screaming but nevertheless I would not want to wear it. I have no ambition of eating caviar and no idea what it smells like but yes there is something salty about Womanity it initially reminded me of the saltiness you would smell from a salty shortbread cookie or so.
My idea of a fig perfume is way better represented in scents such as Versace versense, Figue Sauvage, Ralph Lauren Hot, BBW Brown Sugar & Fig etc

I've finally got a spray of this on my wrist! I was so curious. Well, it smells very sweet and the fig scent is so good and juicy it almost makes my mouth water. I did detect a bit of a salty scent, too, but not too much. I guess my skin brings out the sweeter notes of this fragrance. No fishy smell at all. I'm really not beyond purchasing this one in the future, though I'd rather do without the (albeit pleasant) caviar note.

Oh, and as for the infamous female genitalia scent, I wouldn't have thought of it if I hadn't read so many reviews before sampling this perfume. If I think about it while smelling it, I do smell a hint of that... But as someone said in a review, it's more of an idealised "intimate" scent. Bottom line (no pun intended), if you wear this, you're not going to be walking around smelling like p.... LOL :)

*UPDATE*

I've showered and scrubbed my wrists well. I can't smell Womanity anymore. I've even applied scentless body moisturiser, and I was pretty sure my skin was soon going to be ready oe me to apply another scent.
A friend who just came over asked me "What's this scent?" I said I was just wearing moisturiser, and scentless, to boot. She said: "Let me smell your hand"... And then: "Yes, this is the scent I was smelling! It's beautiful, but strong!". I swear I have my wrist shoved up my nose and cannot get the faintest whiff of it! Beware... you might need a sixth sense to determine whether or not you're still smelling like this perfume!

Yes it's aquatic, coconut, fig and melon, but it's so much more than those. Although Womanity smells like the beach, I don't detect any caviar or fish notes.

I was wearing this at my sister's house today and one of her friends said "What's that smell?" (and not in a good way). I can understand how some people are turned off by it because it's so 'out there', but I find it to be such a mysterious scent and one that I keep sniffing to try to figure out its ever evolving complexity. Very long lasting - it's been 10 hours since I applied it and it's still very evident. I'll be wearing this one on hot days.

I'm predominantly an oriental lover, however, I'm mesmerised by Womanity. I love it and wish I'd discovered it earlier - it's my new best friend. Could the bottle be a take on a chastity belt?

My only beef (but I can live with it) is with the spray nozzle. It's like a super soaker - instead of a spray it delivers a squirt of liquid.

...so I sprayed Womanity in my skin and waited for the obscene-mermaid-vagina-whatever scent but couldn't get nome of it. I smell a very original scent indeed, but nothing freak like people describe.

It's fig, yes, but in my opinion this is mostly like sea breeze...
I don't use to describe perfumes like this but to me Womanity is waves, sun and sand in a bottle, how cool is that?

Note: scroll down, the reviews to this one are the best...

What IS it about Womanity lately? It launched a few years ago, and I never heard much about it, but suddenly within the last couple of weeks it seems to be everywhere. Sometimes the "sleepers" have the most impact, don't they? Apparently us Fragranticistas aren't the only ones searching for something different to excite our olfactory palettes. I do think Womanity is salty, and figgy, and unusual, but (thankfully) I get none of the scents of non-pathogenic skin flora, or yeasts. The possibility of detecting these notes put me off even sniffing Womanity for years. My fears were unwarranted. This is sweet in a warm, figgy way; not like cane sugars or candy. The aquatic note, which is strong for me, calls to mind water algae, like the summery smell of a warm, shallow pond at sunset. Not surprisingly, certain types of caviar smell like this to me, so the caviar connotes "marine" to my nose. I would probably like Womanity, maybe even love it, if it didn't have that watery note some reviewers describe as "watermelon". I'd rather smell like Sevruga over any kind of melon. I'm disappointed that Womanity isn't really that weird...reviews suggest it's something completely unexpected, but after having experienced JAR Ferme tes Yeux and Etat Libre d'Orange Secretions Magnifiques, Womanity is Love's Baby Soft. I have yet to find a Mugler that allows itself to be worn on my skin, but Womanity does not have the perspiration note of Angel, nor the ghastly sharp jasmine shriek of Alien, so, for me, it's Mugler's best so far. Womanity's bottle creeps me out. It would be perfect for Secretions Magnifiques.

This is a sensory bomb of sexy femininity! This is by far the most complex perfume that I have experienced and I fell in love with it upon first whiff. Womanity is difficult for me to even describe but it does evoke sexual imagery and the awe inspiring power of a woman that is secure in her element. Some people compare this to the scent of clean female genitalia – I can see why this image is evoked but I might not have connected with this image on my own if I had not read about this in advance. Sex does immediately come to mind with this perfume, I think it’s the combination of the fig and cavier – it’s very clean smelling and almost salty. I love this and find that it does make sense to anoint my inner thighs with this and the way this perfume mixes with my natural arousal is incredibly intoxicating. There are floral elements to this perfume that I cannot pinpoint but that add a delightfully fresh and sweet feel and it has nice longevity. To me, Womanity is the obvious perfume for a woman that wants to delight in her sexual prowess and her beauty as a woman.

I really don't understand all the talk of vaginas, fishiness, etc. This is a very pretty sweet floral aquatic (to my nose anyway) with something extra. Whatever sort of 'brininess' is imparted by the caviar notes keeps this perfume modern, interesting & distinguished in the sea of floral aquatics (pun unintended). Very pretty, 'sexy-lite'.

This finally came in the mail for me, and I'm in LOVE! It's so tangy and seductive, while also being quite sweet, fruity, and delicious. It's delicious in a guilty way, as if I'm treating myself with each spray.

The bottle is absolutely gorgeous and ornate, the same caliber of every Mugler creation.

I don't quite detect the "fishy" smell that everyone else is getting. I think they're THINKING it's there because of the caviar note in the description...but caviar doesn't even really smell fishy. I eat it all the time, and it has a woody, salty, turmeric smell to me. And I DEFINITELY smell this here.

The combination of fig with caviar yields a woody, spicy watermelon-esque scent.

This fragrance truly comes alive on the skin. It becomes a delicious, woody second-skin. This is a MASTERPIECE.

Oh dear. I am one of those people who when somebody says 'this smells horrible!' I reply 'Let me smell!'. So there I went and sprayed it on my skin, because I'm 'so brave'. I wish I hadn't, it's been 10 hours and the smell is still going strong, after I've scrubbed my arm 3 times. Sillage/lasting power - amazing!

I have to say this is truly strange and I would like to understand how this can smell nicely on somebody else. It's so strong, so salty and to be honest I wish I hadn't read the reviews here comparing it to the scent of women's genitalia, because I couldn't shake that idea off. It made me dislike it even more.

I mean no offense to people who like this fragrance - I guess DON'T BUY IT BLIND is the best that can be said!
I love fig and fig tree fragrances, salty, breezy, beachy fragrances, however this was really not for me. Something sweet and fishy, so plastic-like that doesn't blend well to me. The other night I was in the same room with someone who over-sprayed it and I had to leave early, I'm over sensitive to this, what a curse!

(However, the whole genitalia discussion made me think so much about this fragrance - I mean, wouldn't it make perfect sense if it was created to imitate just that - that pink juice, the name, the chain on the cap that seems like a chastity belt accessory, the face of a woman that 'guards' the juice, the caviar and all of the marketing slogans? Ballsy!)

Mighty Lion's comment made me laugh so hard. But I agree that this sorta smells like a clean woman's privates... That being said, this is more of a 'seduction' perfume to arouse your other half, not to be used for any other occasion unless you have the balls to not care where you wear it lol

Is it wrong that I love it though? :( everyone here seems to find it repulsive...

I'm a male who has to agree with the comments that compare this scent to a fresh, CLEAN, and might I add a sweet whiff of a well manicured p***y..Intensely sexy, alluring, playful, and arousing.. One of a kind scent, and the salt and fig note give it that provocative, distinctive twang that everyone is making reference to.. Along with the ever so slight "non fishy" caviar addition makes this liquid jubilee delectable and decadent at the same time..This fragrance is not for the lil ones it's strictly a grown woman's fragrance for the confident, seductively stylish, and daring..

I just tried this yesterday-----WOW! I do not mean to gross anyone out, but it smells like a clean woman's genitalia, especially a woman who is aroused. It's not EXACT, of course, but the hint is there.I have been looking for a fragrance like this since High School, when frankly I noticed I really liked how I smelled when I was reading steamy love scenes in novels.
Very long-lasting, and the sillage will scare away any woman-haters lol.
I TOTALLY WANT THIS SCENT!!!!!!!

Update: A kind Fragrantican gave me her bottle, and some lotion, because her family disliked it. I have received so many complements on Womanity, other than one fellow who thought I smelled like fish.

hated it. i cant even tell you why. i didnt smell caviar, just saltiness, so im not blaming any fishiness... it was just gross smelling. like bathing in ocean water while wearing a nice fragrance. very confusing and just didnt feel good to my hypothalamus.

I tried this for the first time today,I was so curious about the caviar note and conflicting reviews,but I was not brave enough to spray it onto my skin,so used a card instead. I am actually pleasantly surprised as I thought I'd hate it,but I actually like it and next time I will try it on my skin to see if it suits me. My first impression was that it smelled fresh and aquatic,reminding me of rockpools and the smell of sea brine. I do not know the scent of fresh fig,but this smells juicy and aromatic,with the slightly savoury salty note intensifying later on...the whole scent seems to deepen,becoming richer after time-it's totally unique,I've never smelled anything like it before- I would recommend you try it at least once if only to satisfy your curiosity !

I have to concur with Ritaruda that I thought Lady Gaga's fragrance would be in line with Womanity. It's not quite like anything I've smelled before and I am a huge fan. I wore this so often over the summer a friend who was helping me move caught a whiff and said "Smells like you."

I love the salty/sweet/bitter combination. On me it smells like grapefruit or maybe kumquat sprinkled with salt and sugar. The fig and wood notes are there, but in a more supporting role.

Surprisingly I have found men quite like this on me though I would not call Womanity sexy, sensual or even "pretty".

do not let these strange notes or negative reviews stop you from testing this masterpiece, at least sample this before judging...Womanity is a one of a kind, if your looking for something different and out of the ordinary from your typical fragrance, here ya go

this juice does have a rather fishy smelling hint to it along with juicy figs, the salty sea and leafy fresh leaves,

but not to worry, the fruity note with a slightly salty smell from the figs is more dominant, just think of this scent as if this is what a mermaid or lady Siren would smell like. My suggestion would be to test this first before you buy a bigger bottle! not something you would wanna blind buy

smell: divine! gorgeous and unique!

bottle: a work of art! I love it

longevity: this baby really can stay! one of 2 sprays is enough to last you up to 8 hours

It's with a fragrance like Womanity that I can realize how much subjective is the universe of fragrance. The fantasy is almost as important than the fragrance itself.

To me the fish egg and the fig are symbols to fantasize about a new era of aquatic/sci-fi/women.
And these symbols has probably something to do with women intimacy but this fragrance definitely doesn't smell of it.

Back in the 90's, aquatic notes were very popular and edgy. After the big perfume bombs of the 80's, people wanted to smell more fresh and clean.
Womanity could have been a best seller at this time.
The caviar note is fresh, salty but clean.

Womanity is just a refreshing, unisex woody fig and marine fragrance. Don't ask for more. Not that it's the best that Mugler has done, but it doesn't deserve fierceness yet.

Though I totally understand that it can be disappointing. It's hard to stand out from fragrances like Angel and Alien.

I own the Taste of fragrance version wich is more gourmand and very good too. It's definitely an everyday fragrance and I don't think I bother anyone by wearing it. I just love it.

Well I tried this on my skin for the first time tonight. It has been 4 hours and it has made quite the odd progression.

The first hour was weird, not bad just weird. After the first hour until now it is a nice soft incense like floral.

I would not buy due to the price, but I have enjoyed testing it!

Very good perfum, unique, art perfum. Artistically it is wonderful, the first savory perfum in History.

Different, it made me remember the saltiness of a beach. The sea has this salty fish smell, it made me remember my summer vacation on the beach.

But, personally, I would never buy it. Extremely strong, too much different and I can not see an occasion to wear it. Too much exotic...

Based on the extreme polarity of the user reviews here, this fragrance is obviously a love/hate type of scent. I ordered this online blind based on a combination of my adoration of Alien and the descriptions of an intriguing array of olfactory notes. Alas, this is another which I like on others but not on myself. The initial spray packs a wallop that just keeps on giving on me, and it never settles into something which could be described as even remotely subtle. I gave the bottle to a coworker and on her it's a revelation, and very pretty and powdery. She is over the moon with the gift and I have the pleasure of smelling this fragrance on someone whose body chemistry is much more harmonious with the elements of the scent. For what it's worth, I've not found any offensively fishy smell in this perfume either on myself or on my coworker.

I concur with other reviews which say not to blind purchase this fragrance, but I also say if you like it, give at least a couple of tries before you give up on it.

Kudos on the bottle design, which seems a clever union of the organic and high-tech, a la H.R. Giger.

First time i tested this, all I got was figs and more of it. i was weirded out. For a novice, i was confused with the scent. The intriguing bottle was the first thing that drew me to it but i thought that day, i will never buy something like that. Fast forward, last week I tested it again and O.M.G... It smells sooo effin' good. I snatched up a bottle and bought one home. :) carnal, surprisingly masterfully blended.

Just when I thought I had smelled the worse perfume ever ,
I tried this one.
Like the reviewer before me I do not mean offense to anyone-just giving my honest review . This was just horrid.
It didnt change from the first spritz either-A cross between fish and citrus.

I say Do not buy it blind no matter how much you like Thierry Mugler perfumes .Sample it first.

I adore Angel and Alien! So, I didn’t think twice about spaying Womanity on my wrist. Big mistake!

The prominent fish note is way too strong to tolerate! Must be my skin chemistry… on me it is plain gross. I read the positive reviews in disbelieve: I have it on my wrist right now! How could we perceive smell so differently??

It’s salty, fishy, with some icky sweetish watery quality. Smells bizarre, borderline perverted...

I hope I didn’t insult anyone who loves this stuff. If I did, I am very sorry. It wasn’t my intention…
It’s a warning to everyone else not to buy this one based on other people’s feedback!

Please forgive me… Must go bathe in acetone…

Womanity EDP

Seriously, this is one of the most exciting fragrances, I have come across until now!
I'm so addicted to it, I'm smelling my wrists like every 10 mins. or so since 2 days. Or I'm nosing the spray bottle/noozle, which currently has its place on my work desk.

Womanity is really something special! I don't find anything "strange" or "off-beat" in it in any way.
It smells very, very familiar, yet there is some indescribable and such strong charming appeal to it, that manages to excite me like no other fragrance has done before.

I would describe this as (my first!) "my skin, but better" perfume. Fortunately, it works perfectly with my skin chemistry from start to finish (I can still smell this after 8-10 hours on me)

Womanity, imo, can be worn casually at day time as well as at night, when going out. Depending on how much you apply, this can definitely be a very bold sophisticated statement fragrance, making an entrance the Zen-way.
To me this is a sure self-confidence and mood enhancer!

It's absolutely delicious! I'm so sold on it, that I have ordered the "Le Gout Du Parfum" flanker of it today. Can't wait to smell this one! :)

If you like the smell of figs, fig trees, marine/aquatic scents and you're looking for something quite exceptional, original, an ingenious compostion, I would definitely give this a go!

I can absolutely see this on a man. Definitely a uni-sex perfume!

londonhermit, in Holland we still have no summer or warm weather but i wear Womanity to my work where is very very warm and i have to say it works perfect for me. In the cold this perfume smells for me watermelony somehow and when it's warm i get totally different expirience. And i'd definitely going to wear it in summer :)

I agree with originalparafan this stuff is strong. It gave me a headache. It starts out strong and confusing. However as it dries down it overwhelmingly sweet with a hint of salt.Use this sparingly because it doesn't fade like many perfumes that are released these days. I'll add more to the review when I try it on a weekend in the cold New England weather. Has anyone wore this in the summer? Man I'd be almost afraid.

Amazing how different can this beauty be depending on a skin type.

I was prepared for that famous 'fish'-like' aroma but.....
from the very beginning Womanity on my skin is aquatic, so fresh and clean.
I wasn't prepared for it. It was extremely different from what I was expecting (in a good way).
But just after half an hour it transforms into a smell that reminds me a lot chai tea - it becomes so spicy, warm and comforting.
I swear I can detect cardamom, dry spices and a little bit of milk in it.

Very interesting fragrance.
Very different.
Another great one from Mr Mugler.

oh God!!It didn't whash out from my skin!!!!If you spry this,you probably couldn't free yourself from it.
I smell saltiness and figs...but not only that. I have a strange feeling...it is the smell of animal instinct. It remind me to an ancient savage forest, damp soil...stones and moss. It smell like something forbidden. You should feel a guilty wearing Womanity.
Womanity is a complex scent...I think taht you can't understend it immediatly and you don't spry it in a paper-test!!! At the first spry on paper I smelled only something like ash of cigarettes!!!! Womanity change into your skin and after a little time give off its sexy heart!I can definitely feel the signature of Terry Mugler smelling deep inside this scent. I would give Womanity a chance...It's very very original fragrance.

Isn't it amazing that our skin is sooo different? I must admit, I was scared of womanity because of those lots of negative reviews. But!! It is beautiful on me.
In the first 30 minutes it's creamy,nutty like some kind of peanut butter. It's dark, deep but not heavy. This creamy dream turns into a lighter, fresher smell. It's like the ocean. I imagine that I'm standing on a desolated sandy coast, and a soft, warm breeze brings smells of the ocean. It's a bit citrusy, but not annoyingly. In the drydown part it stays creamy, a bit sweet...I would say it's perfect. I wish it could stay longer on me!
You should give it a chance, and try it on skin, because it can cause a very big surprise...

I got my 30 ml EDP bottle as my early birthday present and i already regret that it is only 30 ml :) I love it. It is so different. Opening of the scent was very sharp and salty but very soon it changed into sweet fresh figs. I guess i have this skin chemistry that every smell develops good on me. However when i went outside into the cold weather it started to smell like cucumber, fresh and transparent watermwelon-like. Not nice. But as soon as i was back home the sweet scent came back exactly as it was before. This is maybe sharp smell but for me definitely not for winter time. I don't smell in it anything foody or salty (ok, only after first spray).It's just lovely but it's not for everybody. If you are a fan of T.Mugler you should like it, every of his scents have kind of extraordinary twist just like Womanity does.

Assiduosity

No fruit symbolises female fecundity more forcefully than the fig. Whilst the leaf of that same tree is the very image of the visual emasculation of the male.

How appropriate then that Thierry Mugler's latest solitary punchline scent should bear the name 'Womanity'.

To describe this as a straightforward smell would be to over complicate things. It is bell peelingly high-pitched and pathetically honeyed fig on top of euphemistic 'caviar'.

It is the perfume of a perversely imagined pun on the pudenda.

What could have been truly controversial and confrontational in more courageous hands is turned into to saccharine vaudeville gag, a semi-skimmed single entendre that just isn't funny, no matter how many times it's told.

On a man? Absurd.

But, actually, that might be preferable to the effect on the female of the species.

One of the worst fragrances I have ever smelled. On my skin it smells like sweat, salt, and rotting fish eggs. It tries to be so much more than it is, the name and the poor marketing just prove my point. I have never been a fan of Thierry Mugler, but I could see how people may like Alien or Angel. Womanity however, is a whole new can of worms. To me, it tries to be shocking just for the sake of being shocking. I don't know whether Mugler tried to make some sort of twisted artistic statement here, because obviously he put a lot of thought into this crap. But to me, this just isn't what fragrance is about. Seriously, scents like this make me wonder... Big designers such as Mugler could literally put the most disgusting note in their perfume, but as long as it has a fancy name, and his label on it, people will fall for it, and love it, no matter how bad it is. Maybe he should redo the Que Pork Barrel Eau de Barbeque 'fragrance', call it 'Maturity' or something, and I bet many Mugler lovers would still fall for it... I am not trying to insult anyone's intelligence on here. I am probably one of the more inexperienced noses on here, but I just don't understand how something so revolting can still have so many people try to defend it because its 'unique' or 'brave and controversial' in a 'good way'. Is this really why we wear perfume? To be 'controversial', to make some sort of statement, even though our perfume makes people drop like flies? Bah. Rant over. I pass on Womanity, and go back to my boring florals.

I do not consider myself a born rebel or a very assertive person. This perfume generated a lot of debates on the internet, most seem to absolutely adore it or hate it. This gave me an impression that it was a very dominating scent and worked for those who have a strong personality. When I first smelled it, the top notes seemed very harsh for me but when it settled, I found it a warm, a bit spicy but rather sweet and very pleasing scent on my skin. It is very extraordinary in my opinion and I recommend it first of all for colder seasons. My advice is that do not let yourself be influenced by the reviews, but try it on your skin at least once, maybe you will be pleasantly surprised.

YAY it smells amazing on me! Right after application it is a bit sharp but soon after it explodes into an addictive sweet, yet savory blast of smell I have to smell over and over agian! I especially like the middle notes so next to on my skin I spray it on my sleeves to keep it from drying into the base note. Not that I don't like the base notes, I really do but there is something special in the middle that I'm addicted to now! I'm just a noob in fragrances so I have no idea what it is that I smell but this reminds me of food and the smell of a hot day on vacation. It's very intriguing! Oh and my boyfriend really loved it immdiately, but that I expected/hoped because he loves TM's A-men for him self a lot too.

EDIT: after about a year of regular use my 100 ml bottle has almost finshed but for now I am not gonna het a new one, I have had too much of it I think. My boyfriend started to dislike it too. I still have a 10 ml purse spray so I will have to see if I can get comfortable with it again by some moderate use of it. I replace it with Crystal noir for the moment when I want to wear a somewhat special scent with large sillage.

It opens with a burst of juicy fresh figs with a green, milky facet, along with a burst of the salty caviar. At the start the fig's juicy freshness shines. Then, as it settles, you get more of the salty caviar, whilst the fig is more refined and less juicy. Immediately after this you get some fig tree wood, which is woody and green. These notes all work together beautifully, each note just accentuating the other, creating a fresh, green, fruity, savory & woody scent. Absolutely stunning and indescribable. It's one of those fragrances you just have to smell yourself to experience the true beauty of it. It's so complex, alluring & beautiful. A masterpiece, undoubtedly. Yet to be disappointed by Thierry Mugler, one of my favourite fragrance houses.

Longevity and projection are MARVELOUS!

i ordered this unsniffed just because i like alien by thierry mugler and i wanted to get a bottle of this in my collection.after reading the reviews here,i was very worried.so today i went to the perfume shop with my sister to try this.i did not wear any perfume on purpose so as to have a fair opinion.
i took the tester bottle and removed the cork and braced myself for the fishy note.on my skin it is very fruity with just a pinch of salt,a huge pinch of salt.i smelled a woody note after the drydown which is very pleasant and quite addictive.all through our shopping spree i kept smelling this yummy scent and i must say that i quite bored my sister with my 'do you smell the fish?'.
however my only complaint is that though this lasts long,it did not project much on my wrist.i feel that this is a summery scent evocative of the seaside and delicious fruits.i do not know the smell of figs as it is not readily available in mauritius.i think this scent varies depending on the climate and chemistry of one's skin.all in all a good scent for tropical summer.i love it.

My daughter and I had read about this perfume and were a little put off. When we were on vacation as a joke my daughter saw this in the shop and said we should give it a try....Both of us giggling and figuring we are on vacation...if we stink nobody knows us...LOL....Both of us were surprised to find there was no fishy stink, no stench at all. On our skin we smelled fresh naturally sweet figs with a touch of salt breeze. The salt is like how wonderful a sweet dessert is accented by a sprinkle of Maldon Sea Salt on top.

At first when I smelled this on paper it had a certain familiar feeling, i knew that me and womanity had met in the past, I fell really hard for it since the first spray.

This is absolutely a unisex fragrance!

Wonderfull fragance!! For me is very special, diferent, it makes me feel sexy :-))
Not fish here, I can smell wood, vanilla..is imposible that it carrie only 4 ingredients in the list.For me is oriental and sweet.With the body milk of the same line is incredible!!
Only one spray behind the ears is enought.For the night you can use two spray for more sillage.Long lasting +10h in me.
If you're bored of the latest releases of fragrances you must try this.You can use it with its body milk or other bodymilk with jazmin or vanilla for example.
Womanity never smeel the same,each day it can surprise you .Womanity adapt to your skin and you encourage :-)))

First of all I must say I’m testing very many perfumes every day. I tested and I read the composition of Womanity. Even now, I’m not convinced that those are the single components of this fragrance. (Just fig and caviar?) The first time when I used this perfume, was an autumn day. We prepared to go out, to a restaurant. My husband was walking in the room searching for something. I just take my scarf and moved to the living room. Suddenly he stopped and, sniffing the air around me, asked with eyes half open: “what do you are wearing?” After that, every time when I’m wearing this perfume he leans towards me, he smiles and says: “you smell so good” :-) {p.s. we are married from a while ;-) }

I love this perfume. This to me signifies my maturation into a young woman. It is deeply unique and fascinating.

At first it can comes off too strong; very 'woody' and nutty but as time goes, it develops into a feminine beauty. I love its balance of sweet and savoury; just like the woman it was designed for.

I have had people on the street stop me just to tell me I smell ''amazing'', and as much as I wanted to tell them ''Womanity, by Thierry Mulger'', I decided to be selfish and keep it to myself, and let them discover it for themselves. What is good about this is that it is not too 'girly', it's feminine but not in the typical way, this just adds to its mystery.

This is the first perfume I chose and purchased for myself, and it certainly will always be my signature. Unfortunately after 7 beautiful months, I only have one or two sprays left. But thankfully I have a refillable bottle!

I think this is a case where it is loved by some and hated by others. Most people use the word salty when describing this ,but once it hits my skin its fig and a very faint caviar note. So its sweet but not overly sugary.DO NOT blind buy. Test it first because It will fit perfectly or be completely discusting depending on your individual skin chemistry.

Have to write another review for this, as I received a new bottle for Xmas yesterday and I don’t think my last did this beauty enough justice. It IS a somewhat ‘different’ fragrance, but it works. Its salty, fresh and crisp and the fig notes are powerful. It’s labelled as a ‘savoury’ scent, but its still very feminine and sweet – just not sugary and teeny, which is probably down to the caviar notes which add maturity and sophistication to the mix. It has a very noticeable fig note, the Mugler team managed to catch that rather perfectly. It lasts FOREVER. All those months ago I wore it and it used to stay on my skin and clothes for days. Now I’m thrilled to say it still does that, I could smell it on my PJ’s this morning. A truly gorgeous perfume with excellent longevity and good sillage - and its much easier to wear than Angel. And the bottle is very interesting too. Womanity has received a lot of criticism and I’ll never understand why.

I came across it by accident... i admired the bottle and took it from the shelve to have a closer look, bottle was covered in perfume. The first impression- where is the closest place where i could wash it off...
It was like the most insulting fragrance i have ever come across, there was something dirty, something vulgar, definetly not safe to use, something forbidden,in strange way sexy, something alluring, simply divine... and i fell in love :)
Now it is part of me, on my skin it's so unique, just like the part of ME i have been runing away... Symbol of Love- Hate relationship. Of the many contradictions that exist in the world, the contrast between love and hate is perhaps the starkest. It is one that helps us value true love while understanding the ramifications of hatred...

Soft, sweet and pleasant. Don't see why it polarizes people the way it does. It's very sweet and sharp at first, but it soon dries to a soft, powdery-woodsy scent. I notice citrus, fig, salt, vanilla, black pepper and sandalwood. It's a warm scent, so it blooms in the Summer (though it's Winter now and it still smells delicious). I will continue to wear it and would certainly repurchase it.

The bottle is sooo beautiful too bad for the smell. I had to try since it's a battle against loving and hating this scent on this site.

I actually feel like a weirdo cos I seem to be one of the very few who LOVE this fragrance.
I had been put off by negative reviews and the rather awful name, but it ended up being my signature for a good two years. My ex partner loved it too - which is the main reason I no longer wear it, as it holds too much sentimental value.
It remains on your skin a long, long time after applying, which is always good.
The fig is very noticeable so I understand that its not for everyone, but I have to give kudos to Mugler for being daring and different.

Oh man, Womanity is so delicious. I love it for the smell, it has a watermelon type scent to it but if you can smell so fine detail then you'll be able to understand what I mean. I wish I had it all the time, but they are discontinuing it which makes me sad, but if it ever comes back I'm buying 3 of them. I mean the bottles are refillable too, so why miss out on a great deal? Either way you should at least try it once, give it a chance if you don't love it or like it, then move on to another scent, but if you love it or like it, then you know what fruity scents it has intertwined into the perfume.

Womanity is a unique, attractive fragrance. A watery, salty and crispy fragrance it's impossible to forget or confuse. The thing that I like more about it is that you can wear it in winter or summer, by day or night, it will always be befitting and pleasant. I find it more suitable on twenty-something women, because it's a light, weightless, ethereal kind of fragrance. Fig is really noticeable so if you don't like it, be careful. It reminds me in some way L'eau d'Issey but a little more marine, sweet and salty. I really think that this would be devastating and hypnotizing on the right woman.

I was always curious about trying Womanity, given the controversy that it arouses. So, when I came across it in my local Marshall's, I decided to give it a try and spray some on my wrist. Now, I was aware that Womanity is a very "love it or hate it" type of perfume. Sadly, I fall into the latter category.

Right from the start, I was hit with a strong note of salty fish with a secondary note of fig, and this combination didn't change throughout the time I wore the fragrance. In fact, with each time I smelled it, the more nausea-inducing it became to me.

The sillage on this little number was medium for me, being noticable at arm's length, but what really sets it apart is how tenacious it was in sticking to my skin. No matter how hard I tried to wash it off afterwards, the scent still lingered quite a lot, though of course not as strongly. If I left it as it was, I could imagine this fragrance being able to stick around for a whole day and at full strength.

To those who are able to wear this one well, more power to you. Womanity is definitely a quality perfume, but it takes a certain type of skin chemistry to make it shine. Sadly, it didn't work on mine.

What a perfume! At first when you spray it it is overbearingly strong, and not pleasant. It smells like woods, damp and earth which is not my kind of thing.
Then after a few hours it becomes slightly more tolerable but no nice smells come through. You get used to smelling a bit like a forest.
Half way through the day Womanity begins to work its magic. It smells like Coconut suncream and you envision sunbathing in a hot country covered in sun tan lotion. It turns sweet and gorgeous, then you really can't stop smelling it. The beauty of Womanity shines through in the middle of the day.
This is why I thought of Womanity slightly like Angel at first it is strong and unpleasant but then it begins to smell really great.
I wouldn't buy this blind as it is an acquired taste but once you get past the woody smell it really is a great perfume!

Tried this fragrance many years ago, on the paper. Such a big mistake! I was avoiding it since then. Decided to give it a second chance and I was hypnotised by this unique and sexy smell that gives confidence and makes you feel so good!
Be careful to apply it though in a small amount because it has a strong silage and will make you feel sick. The others will react as well.
Paradoxically, the same perfume, just two drops, will give that WOW effect.

This is one rare perfume. I won't go over to what's in this perfume because I am not good in describing notes, but rather I will describe the mood whenever I wear this. I don't want to go describe a perfume for what it is, instead of what it does. Nothing smells like it! Every time I wear it this I feel like it can describe the venus side of me, steamy, passionate yet romantic and about to have an orgasm....
The first time I tested it, I fell in love right on the spot. This is really the feminine side of me that only my husband could see... Kind of sacred, that I cannot be open for everybody about it. Perhaps if I am a single person, there is a tendency I'd become promiscuous if I will keep wearing this perfume all the time! Womanity is an appropriate name for this fragrance and it is such an art!

This is my first review and I have been wearing this perfume from time to time since it was launched. I usually wear Chanel No.5 when I have to keep myself on the ground but still being me. Chanel Coco, whenever I need to boost my self-esteem. Chanel Chance original when I feel like being spontaneous.

I have other tons of perfumes that I have yet to discover.

I am surprised !! I Tried this before and hated it (I found the fish smell before too !).. but I re-tried this today and I am totally in love ^_*

This so earthy and salty with the unique sweetness of the fresh fig, it's charming with a very great sillage .. In my opinion for winter only ..

I made my mam & my sis smell this but they didn't like it :s
They told me it smells strange ..
I am not sure If I would buy a bottle someday ,, but I still like & respect this stuff .. atleast Mugler is risking with something new and just creating flankers :)

i really hate eating figs so the smell alone already makes me feel nauseous and sick. when i smelled this fragrance it made me sick and i hated it to so much. i tried scrubbing it off with water and soap but the smell still lingered on my skin. the staying power is so crazy!

when i saw that the notes were all related to fig except for the caviar it explained why i hated it so much. i love thierry mugler fragrances such as the original angel and alien. this one is definitely a huge dissapointment. its so strong, i honestly dont even know how to describe this scent...

It's such a shame this didn't work on me... I love the bottle, I love the concept behind it, I love Thierry Mugler's fragrances - they are so inventive and unique. I gave Womanity a go twice. The first time I thought "maybe it's a bad day, maybe it's a bad tester". But alas, no. Unfortunately, all I get on my skin is a waft of burning tyres with a pinch of sea salt.

My advice is "try before you buy" (unless you only want it for the gorgeous bottle). I envy those of you who can rock this!

Love the design of the bottle. The fragrance itself confuses me, it's salty in the same vein as CK Escape, but sweet like a tween celebrity scent. I can liken it to saltwater taffy in the beginning, but this is definitely not a scent that embodies femininity to me. I don't really know where I could wear this and I have received a couple of not-so-complimentary remarks. 'Fishy' and 'damp' stick in my mind.

First two hours - yum.
But then - YUCK!!! It turns into overipe-rotten fruit, whose sickening cloying smell sticks forever. Beware!

On first application, this feels very grapefruit. Citrus-y and salty. Very sharp and sour, hardly any sweet. It feels like it should be cloying when I breathe it in, but it isn't, somehow. Breathing deeply, I can smell woodsy fig notes, like fig leaves, and just maybe just a tiny drop of rich, sweet fruit closing.

Really, I was expecting this be more "fig". It isn't.

A bit later, no more than an hour, the grapefruit feel has drawn back, and this is a salty sweet fig branch. Which is kind of weird, but it's really what I think of it.

About the caviar - I don't get any fish from this. The note does remind me of the ocean, but I wouldn't really call this an oceanic scent, either. I wonder how many people who say they smell fish actually smell fish, or imagined it after hearing that this incorporates caviar?

Overall... this perfume is kind of unusual, but nothing special to me. Not overpowering or weird. I kind of like it, I think it'd make a good summer scent.

I also am not a fan of the name. I mean, really. Womanity?

On first whiff I got salt and fig and cold water -compelling and strange enough to have the tester sprayed on my skin. The following hour shopping and sniffing wrist and the fragrance transformed into a smell I can only describe as sweaty armpits that had been sprayed with a masculine deodorant. I find all Mugler scents straying on the side of masculine and perhaps his idea of a woman's smell is a salty sweaty fishwife. I have tried to find something appealing about this and actually, three hours later, when the armpit smell had dissipated, the residue smell was not unpleasant.

OH...MY...GOSH! The more I smell this, the more I love it! (just the second time I tried it at the store) and I'm already crazy about it! I feel so high when I smell this, it's just so...aromatic,crisp,marine,citrus,sweet,salty,intriguingand unique all in one pink vintage mysterious bottle! It reminds me of AQVA MARINE too! But it does have that sweet crispy savoury figgy taste that AQVA doesn't have it!

This bottle will definitely be mine in no long time, I just love Mugler's fragrance so much, all of them are so wearable in every occasion :)

mistakes were made.

"salute to femininity," if the designer's sole inspiration is a dead mermaid. I don’t know why it has a pink/ice/steel packaging – the sample of lotion and spray I got was a pale sea foam green, which fit the concept nicely. It’s salty, slightly fishy, and cold. Despite that, it is oddly compelling – it is a trainwreck perfume I can't stop sniffing, as if to remind myself that yes, someone concocted something this nauseating and called it a salute to femininity. The only feminine purpose it serves is an appetite suppressant.

wow, Beatrixel! I don't think any parallel can be drawn between intelligence and preference for scent, but I salute your passion and willingness to insult anyone who disagrees with you. People sure do feel strongly about this perfume. I guess the designer is an 'artist,' if he's managed to offend so many.

between this and Alien, I can only conclude that Thierry Mugler hates women.

My second bottle since I discovered it and I think it is part of my collection of bookmarks. The aroma of figs and some marine and salty but also sweet, strange as all the perfumes of TM, makes you feel different, sexy and special. Every time I use it, I provoke reactions like wow, what's that, you smell wonderful, amazing, or just envy. For you never passes unnoticed, or when you have an intense meeting and romantic or just so you never forget ...

Oh for goodness' sake Beatrixel (review a little bit down from here)!!
Why so serious?
So it's your signature fragrance? Someone says they don't like it on the internet - so what??!!
(I think I previously reviewed this, vague memory of 'mehness' about the smell when I tried it - no salt, no sea, no 'sex', just a strange meh chemical smell, I'll go back and check now!)

Oh and by the way Beatrixel - Light Blue is by D&G, not Gucci!
(And I LIKE it, it's an artful and complex composition that smells much more expensive than it is! Admittedly it's probably been 'worn to death' in the general population now - I think because it's GOOD - but must admit I go off wearing something a little bit if it becomes 'common').

Ooh- looking back on my review, I DID get sea - and suntan lotion - from it actually. And I wouldn't say that marks this potion out as anything unique..

Is it fair to review the lotion? Too bad, I'm going to--it was open at TJ Maxx, and I was curious. I assumed that my uncooperative skin would turn this into the worst possible experience, so I was braced for nastiness and was therefore pleasantly surprised.

Salt. Fruit. That was my first almost singular and instant impresson. Like salt on an apple (which I don't care for), probably because I have limited experience eating figs (usually with Brie and chardonnay).

Maybe it's the fact that it was only the lotion, which may lack the full multidimensional experience of Womanity. It is pleasant, in a kind of nondistinct way. There IS a scent lurking in the background that has alternatingly made me think: shrimp; playdoh; dirt or sand; seaside; holding the hand of a grubby child. It is earthy but not deep, sensual but not sexy. I think "skin scent" because it smells like skin--again, the hand of a grubby child, not necessarily unclean but a little sweaty (salt), maybe with remnants of candy or jam (fruit) blended with playground grime. Maybe I'm totally transferring my own psycho-babble expectations of a fragrance called "Womanity", but this is what I get. I was kind of hoping I'd get the dirty, earthy, offensive, bloody-metallic fertility goddess notes that other folks got, just to experience that. But nope. Just sweaty, jammy hands.

To all those who think there are so many good reviews of Womanity here - THAT'S BECAUSE THE CENSORS REMOVE THE BAD REVIEWS. WHY? WHAT'S WRONG WITH ONE PERSON'S OPINION THAT IT IS COD IN BRINE

What's the point of all this censorship? Go and get jobs to eradicate online kiddy porn and leave us alone. for christ's sake WHAT IS THE POINT. It's either a power thing or a money/kickback thing for you.

Whatever, I don't need to participate in or read reviews which only meet the censors' requirements.

So goodbye Fragrantica, long may you bigoted censors police and shape the perfume opinions of the readers to your own ends.

As soon as this was released I tried it on. I really wanted to be able to wear a Thierry Mugler fragrance, however all the "Angels" and "Aliens" were smelling strange on me.
This fragrance is..... BERRY!! on me. Blackberry, red berry, any berry. It's fabulous and perfect both for daywear and going out. I feel young, fresh, vivacious (perfumes are about feelings for me).
This is one of my couple of fragrances that people comment on and want to buy themselves.
Definitely a nose turner.

Yes Beatrixel your opinion should put put an end to it.
Because you have said it should.

And yes I do have better things to do with my time. I learnt to spell. "Tracherous" has two "e"s; "Anonimity" has two "y"s;
"Deffinitely" has one "f". Truly, definitely.

And because the vast majority of the 1,911 people who voted here dislike the fragrance, that proves the unlimited stupidity of humans? And Einstein would agree with that conclusion?

I like a fragrance if I like a fragrance, not because its designer might or might not be bold, futuristic, into SM or eccentric.

May I suggest if you truly can't accept ignoramuses' shameless blabbings (as you put it) then don't read the reviews and don't flaunt your bile (as you put it). Just wear your perfume and love it.

I thought I was about the perfumes and how we individually ( I'd like to underline this word) perceive them, not about our personalities.

I write what I think and feel. And I am happy if somebody can describe this scent in a positive way. And one more thing- we (people here) are not immature and stupid... Nothing personal.

again... everybody has mixed feeling about this one and I`m not here to change their mind. perfume is perfume. nothing more and nothing less. it`s everybody`s natural scent that decides for the nose.
there are sensitive people who would stick to gucci light blue and citrusy fragrances even in their 40s, and people who can carry poison or shalimar on their skin without a sense of weirdness.
but what I cannot truly accept is how some ignoramus shamelessly blabs about fish and cod and mackerel and the like.
they probably don`t even own the perfume or have nothing better to do.
that should put an end to it.
this scent is not for immature people who go in walmart stores and only buy flaccid and stale smelling
concoctions drenched in preservatives and bottled in second-rate plastic.
a-chooo
anyway, this is what a savory frag is about. If you`re here to flaunt your bile about cod, mackerel and sea-food, go smell something else.
also, I think you have no idea about thierry mugler`s activity as a designer! he`s bold, futuristic, a bit of SM and eccentric. it proves once again that the human stupidity is, indeed, unlimited- einstein would approve.
the scent is very complex and tracherous and is most deffinitely a statement. I have lately tried the cuir version which is strong and blends better on my skin, so probably this second review should have been placed in that section.

I just tested Womanity today for like the 7th time and still couldn`t decide whether to buy it or not. it is just so...contradictory. I very much want to like it because it is obviously unique and has a tremendous staying power but something in it keeps causing me a certain degree of nausea, I just can`t pinpoint exactly what it is... Everytime I smelled it on somebody else I loved it but every time I try it on it`s just not convincing enough to make me buy it, it`s even like I`m a bit afraid of what people would say if they smelled something like this.Maybe i`ll still have to try it a couple more times in the perfumery until to finally decide : I love it or I hate it...something apparently many other women also feel about this unique fragrance.

I was curious about this one, yesterday tried it.
It's a warm, rich scent. But in my opinion that warmth comes from something.. dirty. Like some rotten fruit with some salt (what a comparision). I feel a bit of fish smell too.
I rather dislike this, wouldn't buy it for myself. But have to admit- this is unique. Won't be confound with other scents,that's for sure.

This is a very provocative scent. It's leaves you with such a powerful impression.. On the right person it can be exactly what it was designed to be: a well made salty fig scent with just a little sweetness to balance things. It's not a comfy scent, it's loud enough to support you with confidence when you want to conquer the world!On the opening it reminds me of JLo's Deseo. Definitely try before you buy because it can turn sour on some skin types easily. Overall, great creation full of imagination!! Kudos Mugler!

Womanity is really something new. And controversial of course.
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.
And womanity.
Starts with a jaw dropping, mouth watering realistic fig note. If you haven't smelled 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. Sillage 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.

After wearing Angel years ago (too sweet, bland for me), then Alien, I have decided to try this Womanity thing.
My impression is that this has a strong resemblance to the two previous perfumes by TM - though its sweetness is of a peculiar kind. Nonetheless Womanity has more character - some sort of pleasantly spicy saltiness. I feels/smells like pure sea salt grains. It certainly has nothing fishy about it - at least on my skin - and I would not even say it is caviar. Just a very pleasant counterpoint to the sweetness and fig. And the fig note is crystal pure, to my nose.
At moments, I would call it a delicious fragrance, slightly provocative, yet quite innocent. But as I go through the day, the sweetness prevails. This, in my view, is the slightly kitschy side of TM perfumes. Extremely womanly though.

EDITED: I definitely owe Womanity an update: I wear it on and off, but very recently I discovered that not only this perfume has great longevity, well over 8 hrs, but after so many hours it blends with my skin so as to produce a nutty kind of scent - that must be the sweetness of the fig, mixed with the saltiness of the caviar and the chemistry of my skin - and I started to love it. That scent, late in the day and throughout the evening, is almost addicting. Maybe that's how it was supposed to be by design ;)

warning: it's addictive!!!

I had tried this when it first came out and for some reason or another, I never reviewed it. First off, it's very unique (it's Mugler, so what do you expect?), and on my skin, the caviar was followed by fig. I had just a sample of it at the time, and I even though I liked it because it was so unusual, I became afraid to wear it around others because of the caviar note. With that being said, I never got a "fishy" aroma, but it did remind me of the ocean with it's saltiness. This would actually be a great beach scent for summer; fig and caviar remind me of a tropical island. Naturally, sillage and longevity are amazing with this frag and I may buy it again, this time full size. Another weird but awesome creation by Mugler!

I fall in love with this perfume from the first time I smelled it at the perfume shop.
It's so soft and lovely yet so original and exclusive.
I smell soft sweetness and woody which I believe from the fig and the fig tree and a weird scent I can't explain maybe its the caviar.
Love it so much.

WOW! This perfume is absolutely beautiful! I feel like slapping some of the other reviewers who said it reeked like fish. In the most mysterious and awesome way, it smells like ocean and/or beach, but NOT fish. I really love this perfume. It's SO different. I wish I could explain it better. It's sweet (the fig) with this fresh and interesting twist.........water. It's sweetness mixed with a fresh ocean water smell. Words cannot describe it. I am so impressed with the originality of this beautiful perfume.

I really liked the smell of this perfume when I put the bottle to my nose, until I sprayed it on my skin. It smelt of dessicated coconut and turned very sweet within 30 seconds. Even the sales adviser was shocked by the pungent smell It quite obviously does not react with my skin as well as it does on others.

When I first saw this parfume it looked scary and strange and when I smelled it,was intoxicating. First,I was influenced by the look and the reviewers and I decided to forget about it.Some days later,in a local store,they sugested me a new scent.I immediately fell in love with it. When I asked what it was,they told me: Womanity Thierry Mugler.When I got home I found out this perfume it's full of contrasts . Its salty and sweet at the same time.The fig and the Caviar notes are very obvious.It's flashy.But I think you have to give it a chance to develop in order to enjoy it,as it is the most unique perfume I have ever tried.So don't prejudice it!
I can predict the future: All the women will join and wear Womanity.

I have a full (50 ml) bottle with a unopened body lotion and a Thierry Mugler toiletries bag.
I've only sprayed the perfume once and I was very disappointed about the scent . It is 2 unique for me and it made me feel sick. It was a blind buy, that probably explains a lot.

If someone wants to buy the set for a cheap price or make a swop/swap, CONTACT ME!

However I live in Europe, and it's probably cheaper to ship within the EU.

Have a great day!

This one is different ... a bit of a strange experience for me. That does not mean I did not like it because I have to say that I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the dry down on my skin.

The initial blast was hard to explain except it's a potent plastic-like scent, like when I inhale the smell of new vinyl (it might be that salty smell some other reviewers were commenting on). But it is mixed with something that smells beautiful, it just needs to come out of that bizarre sphere surrounding it. Then a few minutes after ... the divine dry down! The scent that floats on the skin has morphed into the most gorgeous blend of ethereal fragrant notes. I can hardly find the right words to describe it -- it does not smell like fig nor caviar -- it's a soft, feminine yet highly sensual scent. I love that smell.

It's not what you'll call "love at first sight or smell" ... it's the kind of "love" that slowly developed. :)

I've got myself a sample( in fact two), and oh, wow!
What a strange, but pleasant scent. it opens very weird, hard to describe, sour like Lady Gaga Fame, but it turns to a very beautiful, warm and feminine aroma, which lasts and lasts, changing dependable when you sniff it.
It's the weirdest perfume I want to own, and first from Thierry Mugler I trully like

Update:

Ok, it's one day later and I think I've changed my mind. While I can use this perfume staying at home, I tired to go out with it yesterday and found it annoying, disturbing and unattractive! I rushed home to wash it off and it was still there! I felt like smelling of fish blended with some syrup.
Thank God it was only a sample, and I wasn't enough insane to buy it online yesterday.

Few days later : I tried it again, when I was in a very good mood and it worked out ! I discovered that if Im in not too good mood, the perfume is annoying and cloying. Today, as it's almost the end of the week, and I'm looking forward to the weekend, I wore it all day, several heavy sprays, and it was really good. I think it works well with my body chemistry, as I could feel all the best from this perfume today. It was windy, sunny, but not too warm, I had lightwear coat, and I walked smelling of Womanity. It was good.

So... I'm scared, but I'm buying a big bottle.

This has to be one of the strangest perfumes I have ever tried!! It's not that I hate it. It's just so hard to describe!!! The scent is just crazy unique. If you want to wear something that is not on every woman's dresser in America than this should be one to consider. I would NEVER EVER recommend this as a blind buy!!! This is a very powerful, long lasting scent that is not to be trifled with!!! In my opinion this takes a very strong personality to pull this off.

I don't even know how to describe the scent. I have several fig fragrances (Jo Malone Wild Fig & Casis, Hermes Un Jardin Mediterranee & of course Philosykos) & this crazy scent smells nothing like any of them. The scent is a little bewitching. I kept smelling my wrist over and over all morning trying to think how I would describe this.

This is not for me!! If you are unable to test this at a counter I would highly suggest ordering a sample off lucky or ebay before buying. In any case, I give the designer huge props for being so crazy creative. I know a lot of people like the bottle but I find it creepy!! Good luck!!!

Poor naming aside (it's really hard to take "Womanity" seriously when you imagine a team of Marketers feeling proud of themselves for coming up with such an awkward name), this is a very refreshing, briny, sea-salt and figs scent that I did not expect to end up liking this much.

Something about it smells electric-charged and ozonic; like lightning and ocean. This brings a much-needed edge to the juicy heart of sweet figs. Don't dismiss it from the get-go. Get a sample and test it a few times on your skin. Like most Mugler fragrances, Womanity is designed to unfold properly on skin, and smells harsh on paper.

This isn't something I wear daily, but now when I want some zing; all those carbon-copy "Summer", "L'eau", "Fraiche" scents just pale in comparison. Longevity and sillage are just moderate as Womanity softens considerably upon dry-down, but it's definitely still a statement scent.
(Just ask its most famous fan, Lady Gaga.)

This smells really strange and kind of savoury, bit like figs and butter. The body lotion of this was really nice and sweet, but this has a strange warm -savoury- butter smell!

Despite the numerous warnings, I bought this blind and I really did try to like this perfume. I tried to find it unisex and I respect it's almost "alien" originality, but having worn it several times now, all I can say is that I simply cannot stand it. Even one spray makes my stomach wretch and wearing this as a straight man makes me feel so self-conscious, I feel as if I may as well be naked. Yes, it's called Womanity for a reason, although I'm not quite sure what type of woman I would find this smell attractive on (if any). It's just so strong, cloying, overpowering, and nauseatingly sweet, like an overripe fruit, just beginning to turn. Actually, one might compare the scent to a bunch of very sweet, ripe, and vomited... apricots. The smell will not relent and lasts for what feels like (and may be!!!) days. I just cannot get into this fragrance no matter how hard I try, how little I use, or how completely novel it may be. I definitely give Thierry Mugler props for trying this and, as always, for being over the top, but Womanity is too much, even for an avant-garde designer fragrance lover like myself to handle. It definitely has a spot in my collection for pure novelty reasons, but my apologies if I mislead anyone with my initial review of this fragrance which was quite positive and also very popular, however, being a man of integrity, I had to delete it and repost my true feelings here. I will ad as a caveat however, that although I do not enjoy this scent, it DOES NOT smell like unwashed genitalia...

Overall: 2/10

Two points for originality and a brilliant bottle design, but this sickly-sweet, salty, cloying, old grass clippings, and turning fruit of a fragrance makes me want to shower as quickly as I possibly can. Yuck.

Definately is like nothing else. I got sick and almost vomitted, but anyway, I can really appreciate originality in a perfume, so like it and i hate it at the same time. The fig is wonderful, but unfortunately the salt and caviar oppresses. I sooo wanted to like this, but I don't. Sorry, Womanity, I've tried, but I've failed.

Too intense for me, but a remarkable, interesting and original perfume. it's very sexual, it smells of food and sex, but the floral notes let it down, and make it a bit too strong and vulgar.I'm sure fig and caviar would work better with more jasmin and something watery instead.

It opened with a sharp, peppery green that worried me a little, but after a few minutes came the nice balance of salty and sweet. The fig leaf stays close to the skin, with the salty and sweet coming in alternate whiffs.
It does remind me of how skin smells after swimming in the ocean.
Overall, very pleasant, sexy, and unique. My guy likes it too, so I'm getting a bottle.

I dont smell 'fish' persay but I can absolutely see where others are coming from with the fishy smell. Its very salty and when I let my fiance smell it he told me never to wear it. I don't find it to be feminine at all. I ended up trading this out. Shame because the bottle is really a work of art.

Wow, this is the scent that caused so much furor? I had to get it after the extremely mixed reviews about it. It's an interesting scent, not something I will reach for on a daily basis but it is striking and different if the day or occasion calls for such an individual scent. Salty, sweet and a little citrusy to my nose, I suppose that's where the fig leaves come in. Not salty as a bag of potato chips, but balances the sweetness of the perfume and gives it a contrast so it isn't your run of the mill sweet scent. As like other Mugler offerings, it is very powerful and long lasting, I would advise gentleness with the spraying. A seemingly natural sweetness ( like real fruits as opposed to candied ones) with a sprinkling of sea salt and a dash of lime, very refreshing and does not deserve the bad names it garnered all over the web. However, I can safely say that this is one that should be sampled first before deciding to get a full bottle, it definitely would not be to every woman's taste despite the all encompassing "womanity".

Mugler is a proud rule-breaker and his Womanity is no exception. I was in Paris when this came out and initially I was taken aback! But I love everything that Mugler does so of course I tried it and fell in love! This is an amazing concoction! An original that must be tried with an open mind. Cannot wait for the leather flanker!

I absolutely adore this scent. This is a very aquatic fruity scent. It comes out very salty at first, but it tones down to an oceanic woody fig. 1 Spray on your neck and 1 spray on one wrist dabbed with the other wrist is enough. This fragrance is VERY strong, and the sprayer sprays a LOT. spraying it on your wrist 6 inches away still gets your whole wrist wet (ALMOST DRIPPING WET) so that's why you should dab the excess on the other wrist.

This scent is very womanly, and not the feminine type of womanly. More like a "I am woman, hear me roar. I am woman, don't mess with me. I will tear you apart". Which I think is very interesting. It is a strong fragrance, not just scent-wise..but mentally too. It is a strange scent that not everyone will love. But I for one, love this.

This is actually male friendly if you're male. I'm a gay male and I LOVE this scent. The bottle is gorgeous..Love the chains and the face. Womanity is the most perfect name for this fragrance

I've reviewed this perfume before, but decided to give it another try recently...I only sprayed twice, as I remember I found it very strong in the past. Well, that was too much. The smell was the salty overly sweetened fig, all day long. It gave me a headache. I really wanted to like it as I have a few samples, but the scent doesn't change as there's only three elements, and I found that this did not work this time. Occasionally I get a fishy smell too, which didn't help the headache. I tried, but with no avail will have to pass on Womanity.

Really tried to like this one. Wore it on a hot day and again on a colder day and....... YUK !! Really not sure what it does smell off but I agree with the reviews that state "fishy" and "salty". I usually like Thierry Mugler perfumes but I think it must be that this one just doesn't mix with my skin chemistry. Couldn't wait to wash it off!

This is very pleasant on me. No more than one spray or you will regret it. I dab a little bit on my wrists and neck (this was easier when I had the sample). It's sweet, creamy, but balanced by a very subtle salt element that reminds me of the ocean. Creamy bases with vanilla and tuberose make me sick, but here it is just fig and this works for me.

Sometimes I will layer with a little bit of Johnson's baby lotion, to keep the milky fig going. Lasts all day. Sometimes it makes me hungry.

Haha, so many many conflicting reviews again... Who else could've been the house behind this perfume than Thierry Mugler? Well, Womanity is a conflicting fragrance for sure.
I have certain habit of using perfume. I don't change them daily, or accordingly to my mood. I associate a fragrance with a certain person, vacation, season, or with an impression, sometimes for weeks. So when I apply that previously chosen perfume months later, I'll remember and feel the same way like then, like I want to :) Sorry for the long introduction :D
Delicious fig comes first like a blast. In the cookies, little salt is supposed to boost the sweet taste, and the situation is the same here. Fig note becomes like it's dipped in honey. Womanity is a not too complicated perfume, some hours later she turns into a softer scent, and lasts for days!. It's like a fig tree with many ripe fruits near the hot mediterranean sea, when a light breeze comes, and brings the scent to my nose :) Mouthwatering!
When do I use this precious perfume of mine? Of course when it's summer holiday! Once in a blue moon I apply it in winter, and the feeling of summer is overwhelming :)

I bought three Womanity perfume samples and I couldn't wait to get a sniff of it. I have to admit, after reading all the reviews on here I was scared of what I was going to put my nose through!

This is one of the most nice and original perfumes I've ever smelt. All the people that say this smells like fish blah blah, you are all talking crap. I can smell a slightly sweet, woody and salty fragrance. It reminds me of sunbathing on the beach, with lightly coconut scented sun lotion and the tide comes up and covers your body with sea water. I probably like it so much because I live near a beach and it brings back good memories of going to the beach in sunny weather and just relaxing.

Womanity is strong but not offensive and it lasted along time.I think this is suitable for all ages. I really want to buy a proper bottle of this now!
I highly recommend to anybody looking for a slightly sweet, woody and beachy fragrance!

Straight from a bottle it smells like Body Shop's Fig and Rosemary shower gel from Earth Lovers range. On the skin - much cosier, relaxing, makes me smile and feel like home( weird, but don't know how to explain that feeling better).
Fortunately my nose can't detect any unpleasant aspects of this fragrance. Luckily my skin does not bring out any nastiness in perfumes)))
Most of all I smell fig (fruit as well as leaf - I know this scent well from the fig garden) with nice salty undertone (wouldn't say it's a caviar).

This is by far the most pleasant perfume I tried lately. Being a worshiper of Alien, but hater of Angel, I wasn't sure what to expect from Womanity... Let's go step by step.
The initial spritz is overpowering mixture of salt and figs. Salt is all I sniffed in the first minute. Then, fig slowly emerges, creating a gentle mix with fresh sea notes. The scent moves further, creating its magic. At this point, I'll say that this perfume develops into something far more complex than a pure mixture of fig and caviar like it is listed above in the 'notes' section, a dash of powdery white flowers (jasmine maybe?) Well, whatever it is, it's awesome!! I feel embraced, can't stop smelling my wrist... WTG, I found my Womanity! Meeting two male friends at this point... One of them says it's too cloying for summer, like it's more a winter scent, but the other says it simply suits me perfectly. I agree. So this means that it all depends on the taste, and even more, on body chemistry. Either it works for you or it's too heavy.I adore it. The sillage and longevity are eternal.
After reading all those negative reviews here, I can only say that Womanity fulfills my demand, and that is an exclusive perfume which is not a smash hit pop star worn by every second girl. Instead, it is a unique creation, a perfume made to be a signature scent of a pure feminine strong woman who will be noticed wherever she goes.

I fell in love with it at the first whiff !! After reading so many negative reviews, I must admit, I was quite apprehensive !! But this is delicious... mouth watering but not in sweet sugary way.. In fact, I hate those kinds.. but this gorgeous !! Is something wrong with me ?!?!?!

Also, I am not really aware of how caviar smells like or even fig... I am still an amateur in the in the notes department.. but there is something about this perfume which makes my mouth water... :D

P.S. What a gorgeous bottle !!

Hmmm. Okay...

It doesn't remind me so much of caviar as of raw oysters or clean sea water. Very ozonic - sinus clearingly so! - and only slightly salty.

I can't say I recognise the fig either. There's a pleasant sweetness overlaying a strong fresh-cut vegetation note. Together they remind me a bit of the smell of sweet grass.

But, even lightly applied, the ozoney smell is so powerful it actually catches in the back of my throat, making this "sniff and review" session a bit of an ordeal.

Wow I thought Angel was bad (and it is IMO) but this takes the cake! I literally was just shocked at how much I dislike this scent when I smelled it at sephora the other day. It smells like cigarette smoke and musk and something else that I forgot (but it wasn't good).

It's safe to say that I'm not a fan of thierry mugler perfumes...I can deal with Alien but that's all I can tolerate.

I remember when I was gave a sniff for Womanity, I thought it was the worst perfume ever made by the Haus of Theirry Mugler. With the saltiness and sweetness combined really made me sick. But about 2 weeks later, went ahead and sprayed it on my wrist. And surprisingly I start to really like the perfume. And I actually do smell more of the sweet notes than the salty notes. It's really a savoury perfume I must say. Do give it a couple more tries before saying it's the worst one made.

I got interested in the perfume because of the great looking bottle and of course because it was another one of Thierry Mugler. I sprayed on a papercard in the shop and thought it was fresh and nice, so I bought it. On my skin, it's still fresh, fresh, fresh. And very mild. Not at all strong on my skin, like many reviewers say. I don't find it strong or heavy. Rather very mild and fresh. Not at all like Mugler to me. On my skin, I smell green apples and rose. That's how the scent comes off on me. My hubby couldn't smell it unless he was standing very close. I had been careful when spraying, since I read many of you found it to be strong and warned to be cautious when spraying. I actually wish the scent was stronger, since it's very mild on my skin. I'm so used to the strength of Alien and Angel, that I'm sort of disappointed at this fragrance. I'm gonna buy the bodylotion of Womanity so I get a stronger projection with the edp. I think the strength is like an edt. I'm not sure I'm gonna buy a refill for this bottle, because I don't find the scent that unique either. Rather boring.

I'm not normally a squeamish or a timid person, but it took over a week for me to work up the nerve to actually wear this. I scored a 1.7 oz refill at TJ's for $10 and couldn't pass up the opportunity to own such a controversial Mugler fragrance. I loved Alien straight away on first sniff, and was hoping I'd have the same reaction to my first sniff of Womanity, but I was thrown for a loop at its salty, strange craziness. I kept sniffing the bottle throughout the week though, I was definitely intrigued; I knew it would smell differently once settled on skin. I finally had the opportunity to wear it while home for the day with nowhere to go and although I don't love it, I have to agree it's the most unusual scent I've ever come across. The fig and the saltiness combine for a natural, body scent, like one swam in a shallow ocean and let it dry on the skin. It's not a stink, not at all, and I can see how some women, and men, could smell beautiful and mysterious in this. Sillage and longetivity is monster, as is to be expected from Mugler.

As it stands I would not wear this. I do plan on experimenting though. I couldn't help but wonder how it would come off if layered with a rose, such as Gres Cabotine Rose, or a linear Demeter frag. Mugler has outdone himself with this one, I can't imagine anything more unique than Womanity.

THIS STINKS!!! It might be nice when lightly sprayed, but this stuff is sooo strong. I've just been on holiday with my best friend to vegas (we are from UK) and she wore this in the evening, it was soo overpowering and musky-sweet (and I like both musky and sweet scents) it made me feel sick! I have never had that reaction from a perfume before. Didn't have the heart to tell her as she adores it. I just said it was 'strong'. BLEUCH. Please if you wear this perfume do us all a favor and use it sparingly, and perhaps in the cooler months! This is definitely not meant for liberal spraying, nor desert heat.

I first tried this at the airport, i kept getting whafts of fragrance, even after the shower the scent was still there on my skin and coming from the wardrobe and thought..yes i really like this!
I didnt buy it immediately but when a gift set was reduced after xmas i treat myself...well!
I cant wear it, it overpowers me! I actually had to move away from a lady on the bus as it immediately gave me a migraine, I love Alien so wanted the same relationship with Womanity but its just not meant to be. I have a box now which i keep my bottle in and when i open the box the scent is divine, yet one spray on my skin and the migraine arrives... I want to love her but sadly she will allways remain distant from me..maybe in years to come our moment will arrive.

I had been considering Womanity for some time, and finally decided to buy it on the internet. It turned out to be a very good blind purchase. I love the scent immediately.

I have always adored the smell of figs. In Womanity, the fig is light, not as sweet as what comes off my Estee Lauder lip gloss. The caviar note is salty, not fishy. There's also a minty smell, I guess that's supposed to be the fig tree. The fragrance remains quite consistent throughout, which I consider a good thing.

Womanity is fresh, posh, and modern. Good longevity and sillage, but not as powerful as some of the 90s EDPs (Clarification: great projection and super longevity like all TM perfumes though not pungent. My cousin tried one spray in her room and we still smelled it in that room the next evening) It's not offensive in the least. Perhaps some people are not used to salty savory notes, but I find slightly salty air quite pleasant.
(One problem...the salty notes don't mix well with sweat...don't use as gym scent. Better for cool weather)

I like this a lot! It's my latest purchase and it's sooo great! I also think this scent is salty and maybe a bit of licorice but I would not sign for "fishy"?! I like the relation to caviar though ;-) And to my nose there's absolutely no woody note?!
Thierry Mugler always creates parfumes you either love or hate. And I love all the ones I know. But, as usual, it's easy to overdose and you should be very carefull. I used only a sprizz on Friday before I left the office and everyone coming into my office or meeting me on the way to my care made me compliments for my scent. So it's definitely not a common sense and you need a bit self-confidence to wear it. You will be noticed!

I love this!

I was sent a free sample and without thinking too much about it sniffed and thought mmn different, then found myself sniffing more throughout the day.

By day two I had decided I needed a bottle it was that addictive. Now it's become a go to scent for me simply because in this awful UK weather it seems to fit much better than exceptionally summery scents that I should be wearing at this time of year but just don't find they feel right it's still so cold and rainy.

I love salty notes in perfumes and this one reminds me of being at the beach. It has an ozonic quality which is very much like the smell of fine sea spray or mist that comes off the ocean on a wet chilly day.

For me this perfume is not really about the individual notes its more about the way it feels and at the moment it feels just right it's not a heavy winter perfume but it's definitely a great choice for a cold summer.

Oh, Womanity, how you wooed me! First the whispers and rumors. Then I caught a glimpse out of the corner of my eye. Like the cute new guy in the office that you have to find a reason to run into him again, just to get a better look. Woah!

I got a whiff and it was so different than anything else I experienced. I couldn't commit. I took a sample and it's like that bad boy with the motorcycle you shouldnt date. But you can't say no. The attraction is there. No denying it. So you go out for another test drive. Then it's hook, line and sinker. I was in for the long hall with the biggest bottle I could get.

It's like the sweet and salty dance of a good kiss locked into the here and now with no regard of the future.. That bad boy in perfect harmony with a good girl. It's deep and dark but light and airy all at the same time. Perfect!

Then my girlfriends all started to comment. Then ask. And like a girl in love I started talking. The next thing I know my fragrance was cheating on me with all my friends. Have they no shame? Didn't they understand I called dibs? It's like showing up at a nice event and someone else is wearing my dress. Or showing up with my date from last week when I thought things went so well.

It starts off with a bang. Sweet fig and salty aquatic caviar. Someone below said it reminded them of a mermaid and I can totally see that or should I say "sea." It mellows out so nicely. It seems to have a slight spice. And sometimes the saltiness reminds me of celery. And the fig is not overly sweet.

Just to spite my girlfriends-I'm going to get the Taste of Fragrance version and keep my mouth shut cause I'm not sharing!

I do think the fig chutney in the TOF does add to it. Just a bit more sweet fig to balance out the saltiness of the cavier. It's just different enough...

I have womanity and I love it. yes, I will be biased because i am a thierry mugler fan.
I don`t really want to repeat what others have said about it, be it good or bad. but every time I wear it I have this image etched into my memory.

a woman in her twenties just got out of the shower. she plays tennis and she`s highly competitive. with each serve, her hair sweeps right before her eyes and she takes profound, abdominal breaths. she sweats in the merciless sun. she`s focused and she beats her partner at the game. sinewy muscles could be distinguished as she takes a break. her cotton shirt is a brilliant, blinding white and is meshed so perfectly on her humid skin that makes you want to squish ripe peaches and figs on it, just because.and maybe a tinge of fish egg- the sparkly, sticky caviar. her pulse calms down and her cheeks are a healthy rose petal shade. as eyes descend, one can see her thin, tanned ankles, sweat dripping from her thighs, half hidden in the tennis miniskirt.she`s like an arabian horse running through the desert. fascinating and fast.elegant, luscious. a sheen of sweat gracing the body as veins, muscles and ossature converge. she`s also predatory like a cheetah. souple, agressive, obstinate and alluring. danger. it smells clean and ~dirty in a good way~. it`s both. but not angelic, because this scent is very earthean and humane. it blends so well with the human body that it`s almost like a natural scent. I love wearing it in the summer, but then again it is an all season fragrance. it reminds me of katie jane garside, in an unexplainable way.

Briefly sniffed,but at first I liked the fragrance.I was prejudiced because a lot of things written about it, bad and good. I felt good side and definitely want to try again. Figs wrapped with something I could not detect. However, I do not like the bottle, but it's less important to me, though not unimportant.
The same feeling as when you smell Boudoir, something different, and perhaps not always ready for surprises:)

I would not describe womanity as a beautiful fragrance, in fact it has taken me two years to finally realise I actually like the fragrance. When I first smelt this I was horrified that this scent has been bottled and then marketed as perfume. All I could smell was this dirty cigarette smell mixed with salty garbage, sort of the smell you'd expect Britney spears' perfume should have smelt like during her breakdown phase. When rumors circulated that this was being discontinued I became alarmed, I thought I would miss smelling this perfume. In fact I had been smelling this scent every time I went into David jones, and enjoyed spending a good amount of time complaining about its odd smell.
But really this perfume is amazing, i feel as if it was very thoughtfully constructed now. I still detect a cigarette smell, but i now enjoy it. Additionaly now i wish the caviar and sea notes were stronger, I really enjoy the savory component to this scent since I am not a lover of sweet scents, and even though this is sweet because of the fig it is grounded by the delicious savoury nutty feeling.
Womanity is really robust for the first 2 hours people will be able to detect this on you, and I have received compliments on the aroma. After the initial busyness of the opening the more intelectual properties of womanities personality are expressed, it definitely becomes more personal and intimate, I find I enjoy the quiter bass notes just as much as the early phase of the perfume.

Overall I think everyone loves womanity but perhaps they think they don't like it because it doesn't smell like anything else they have . I would miss this if it were discontinued and I think even the haters would as well. While this is a unique scent it is not so strange that it isn't wearable, I dare you to fall in love with womanity.

I recently found Womanity in an airport duty free shop. Was it a good idea to try a controversial scent before a flight? Probably not. Did I try it anyway? Yep.
I just kept wondering, would I love it or hate it, since everyone seems to be so polarized about this scent? And honestly...I liked it. I found it pretty and pleasant, sweet and fruity with a hint of fresh salt water. And that's about it.
I found myself wondering: why is THIS the fragrance everyone's so worked up about? If it wasn't made by Thierry Mugler, would it be anywhere near this controversial? And if no one knew it contained caviar, would it be so "offensive" or even so intriguing?
I'm just wondering if it's the hype that got everyone else, just like it got me, because overall, I just think Womanity is a pretty fragrance.

To me, at first, it smelt truly of tobacco; which wasn't enjoyable to me. In fact I thought the perfume stank, and very badly at that. I simply prayed the smell wasn't as detectable as I feared it was and moved on with my day.

However few hours later I could smell a very interesting scent coming from my bag. It turned out the sample that I had, spilled in my bag and the smell was fantastic! Extremely distinctive, nothing like I've smelt before. I didn't think it was gourmand or particularly sweet like other reviews suggests. To me, the perfume retained a certain harshness that I initially detected with the smell of tobacco. The perfume is thus certainly not light, pretty and inoffensive. I find it very distinctive and unforgettable; defiantly a one that shall turn heads!

If you can live through the horrible opening, you'll find the perfume is very special. Not for everyone however. I agree with other reviews in that not everyone will be able to pull it off!

Absolutely sexy and sultry!!! So beautiful, the more I sniff my wrist the more I obsess with it.
I didn't fall in love with it at first,it is WAY too strong and weird. I even regreted about I sprayed it on my wrist(because somehow I have to bear with it till I reach home then wash it off),so I tolerant it and do the following shopping in the mall. On the way home, I start to sense this amazing fruity freshness came from nowhere, of course I realized it came from my wrist at the end, it is just amazing how I start to apprciate this perfume since then.
There is nothing like Womanity on the market so far, it is so unique and I will never get tired of it. BTW, am I the only person don't like the name of this perfume? Somehow I think this amazing jewel deserve better name, or at least more appeal for the currant market, may be 'Sluty juice'? lol, joking =P

This fragrance is absolutely beautiful and unique but but it takes a certain type of person to wear it. If you are like me and tend to pull out sweet scents, this fragrance will probably smell awful on you. On the positive side, this fragrance definitely lasts a long time.

I think it‘s a masterpiece: Womanity has a very strong personality, an aura even. The smell is very feminine indeed, but not in a girly or demure way. Womanity is young (or – youthful, because it is suitable for all age groups except teenage girls who are not Lolitas), sexually mature and confident. Yes, it is loud and attention seeking – imagine Samantha from Sex and the city. But very attractive indeed. The scent itself is really complex, although I do not detect any body odor or fish notes. First hour it smells really fresh. There even is a detergent-like undertone, which is quite challenging. Then Womanity becomes salty sweat with milky figs and almonds. The drydown is all about figs and tender woods. Silage and longevity are phenomenal.

This perfume smells of chemistry gone wrong... fish and ammonia, all left to fester in an ancient salt water cave, then dipped in a bath of overly sweet fermented figs... The saltiness and unatural bitter-sweet mixture in this leave a confused and shocking aftermath! This to me was not a pleasant experience at all to smell, part of me wishes i'd never smelt it, but the intrigue this fragrance has left makes me feel like its all a clever ploy to pull you in with the bizarre, illogical and controversial aromas!

This does not smell "womanly" at all and what's with the pink bottle and pink juice? The only part of the packaging that is in accord with the frag is the metal frieze adornment (and that is too structured imo) the flanker designs do better.

There is something in the dry down that reminds me of Angel Sunessence Blue Lagoon, I suspect these two would work well together, will try it sometime.

I am wearing a sample, the only note I could remember from the reviews was caviar, I do detect lots of saltiness and rich fruity overtones, that must be the fig. I thought I smelt citrus in the opening notes? Have you ever harvested rock oysters at low tide? Mmmn, that delicious salty aroma with a dash of lime and some sweet herbs - that was my first impression. The dry down looses the oyster note and leaves salt, yummy rich figs and woods,

This is not a pink, femine fragrance, it's so asexual and it's greeny-blue! A marketing disaster, or should I say catastrophe, has aimed this wonderful fragrance at the wrong demographic. It has an ozonic quality that makes this a perfect sea aquatic scent. Where as D&G Light Blue smells to me like a sterile sand atol in the middle of nowhere, Womanity smells like the sea shore. Rock pools brimming with life, organic, minerals, sweet and savory.

I would market this frag under a name like Rock Lobster or Time And Tide. I like it and I think I'm going to love it.

A very clever fragrance indeed that plays right on the edge. Unfortunately, that edge is far past where the mass Mugler-buying populous draws the line for wearability. It isn't really all that shocking, but it does play with some interesting accords more than a little reminiscent of certain bodily functions. A transparent spiced fig with a musky metallic note to give it depth and magnificent character. It does a careful balancing act and the whole fragrance becomes rather dynamic despite its simplicity. It is nothing short of a masterpiece in my opinion. Once people are comfortable with all of these salty/savory notes in a few years, I'll expect this one to be made popular again. How long did it take for cotton candy notes to catch on?

I saw that movie, or the French version with subtitles. Funny that I was only thinking of it last night - thinking I could finally appreciate his sociopathic obsession to capture the perfect scent.

The scene that impressed me most was when he was standing on the guillotine platform, the whole city square a seething mass of bloodthirsty peasants until he released his secret weapon - the distilled essence of the girls he had murdered. Slowly, as if in a trance, the populace embarked on an sensual orgy of mass proportions, those nearest to him declared him a vision, an angel and he walked away unhindered. The next day the people in the square awoke to much embarassment, nobody was untouched by the experience, not even the bishop.

If this is what Womanity smells like, I'll have to get hold of a bottle.

ps. I just ordered a sample.

I've yet to find a Mugler fragrance I really like. I like the opening of Angel but there's an odd note during dry down that turned me off. Alien is just that but Womanity rose to the highest level of repugnancy. I couldn't take it on the paper tester. No way was I trying it on my skin. The thought of spraying peppery, fishy, BO on me isn't appealing no matter what sort of changes occur during the dry down. Triple yuck!!!

I got a sample of this for free and i really did NOT like it. it smelled like wet dirt on me. it was too woodsy, like i had been in a jungle playing with dirt and worms (a salt smell) and then brushed up against some flowers on my way out of the jungle. I wont be purchasing this fragrance. What made someone think women smell like Caviar? thats a polite way of saying she stinks if you ask me...

I really tried liking this perfume but failed with my many attempts. It does start out fresh and a little sweet from the fig. But later the scent evolves into something metallic. I'll give this scent another chance, maybe it would be more ideal for the winter. On a good note, it is quite long lasting and the bottle is pretty unique as well.

I was extremely curious about Womanity, some of you have written kickass reviews, others more controversial.

I had the opportunity to try it out in store today and I could tell straight away it wasn't for me! Very salty and woody to my nose (and strong!), with a good hint of fig. I can handle a fairly woody/musky/spicy scent, but I couldn't handle Womanity. It's a very rich and warm fragrance, cleverly balanced as well, it's just unfortunate that I can't enjoy it. :(

First of all, I have to admit that I don't like most modern perfumes that are marketed as "womanly", because many of them aren't "womanly" but "childishly sweet and sticky"
and as an adult I want a grown up perfume.

Having this in mind, I was surprised by womanity.
I really liked the commercial and read a few reviews and decided to give it a try.

Womanity is described as a somewhat "confusing" fragrance, but what's so bad about that?
It's crisp, fresh, a bit watery and sweet and spicy at the same time.
It remindes me of having picnic on the beach (salty water, figs, grapes, bellpeper...).

Yes, it's called "Womanity", but this could be considerd a unisex smell, even by those who don't belive in 'perfume is genderless'.

Womanity is perfect for anyone who desires a perfume that is modern, "something special", sexy and confident.
So go for it! Don't let the pink bottle with the whole shebang intimidate you!:)

I have to say, when I first smelled this, I thought, EW! I had a sample of it that I hadn't touched for literally two years because I didn't like the way it smelled on the cap. Fast forward to last week and I tried it on and there was just something sexy about it. I don't know if it's the figs or the unusual salty/oceanic notes, but for some reason it hit me that I really like it! I was on Fragrantica and I saw some people say that Womanity was being discontinued, and that some people had seen it at Mar$halls, etc. I was like, what? Thierry Mugler frags at a discount store? I was at Mar$halls today, and lo and behold, there was one lonely bottle, screaming my name. I had to have it! I am really glad I got it. It's probably the weirdest scent I own, but I really like it!

I'm a guy, but I love this scent. I always think that for me fragrance is genderless, if I like a scent I buy it, I don't care if it is for women or men. So this was actually the first "woman" fragrance I've tried back in 2010, and after a few weeks of testing it, I decided to buy one for me, so I got this for myself for my 20th birthday. I have a 30ml of this treat and I still love it. At first I tought that it is only a winter time fragrance, but it can be worn anytime I think, (I haven't tried it in the summer heat yet, but surely I will this summer.) It is fruity, sweet, salty, animalic, sultry, sexy, edgy, unique. It lasts all day long, on clothes it lasts really really long time.
Overall: 10/10

ahh my curiosity has been fulfilled i had the shop assistant spray a big whiff on my arm.

This is definitely a very interesting scent, i do not smell fishiness at all! so i guess it must settle right within my chemistry. to me i can definitely get the salty.. almost a dry salty, like that type of thirst you get when you're speeding on a boat on a hot day and your in the midst of the salty air. I dont know what fig smells like so i'll go on what i can smell.. i get the impression of whips and chains with a bit of aniseed in the drydown and before that i got a licoricey slighlty peppery smell and some kind of basilly smelling leaf.. is that the fig tree?

This is a different scent for someone who can bring it to the table. this woman is a leopard in disguise of a woman, she has fire in her eyes and can flirt with a man like a cat does with a ball of wool and leave you hanging wanting more. a powerful woman who knows it, but doesnt power trip. shes the type of woman who adds an accessory and her outfit looks super stylish, she really picks out good statement pieces such as the taste in her perfume!

If you're looking for a very daring, sexy, fresh, unique scent for hot summer days, go for this. I've just rediscovered my love for this quite obsessively.

first smelt it in Summer 2010 when on a beachy / lake holiday in France, and loved it, however then I had it for Christmas 2010 as a present, and it didn't seem the same, I know now because it's definitely a summer perfume!!

You won't go unnotic3d wearing this, and for a fresh scent it's incredibly long lasting.

Are they really discontinuing it?!

It reminds me (in it's uniqueness and saltiness and daringness) of a ladies' version of Kenzo pour Homme.

I don't know what figs smell like, but if they smell like this then they are da bomb ;-)

Love the Metropolis-looking bottle! The name is silly. I absolutely love the scent, though! I don't know what people are talking about by saying this smells like rotting fish or "coochie sweat". I think it smells sweet, creamy, fruity, and woody. On me the caviar scent only comes out as a slightly aquatic note, which I find refreshing. My husband loves it a lot. It might be the most wearable out of my three Mugler perfumes (to inclue Angel and Alien).

This was such a fun perfume experience for me. From reading all the polarizing reviews ("it's a fresh fruity scent!" "it smells like rank rotting fish!" "is that celery I smell?"), to finding a 30 ml for cheap at Ross and muttering "YOLO" while I headed to the register, to spraying this onto my skin blind and hoping for the best and finally being so damn pleasantly surprised by this scent.

For me, Womanity is such a breath of fresh air after accidentally bringing home the most boring fragrance in the world (Gucci Flora for those curious). It's a gorgeous sweet and creamy fig with a wonderful salty bite. I can see myself loving and wearing this all summer long. I wore this out to see a friend I hadn't seen in ages, and the first words out of his mouth were, "I really like your perfume." Honestly, I can't see picking out "fishy" unless you know about the caviar accord - it's really just a salty note that brings an almost bracing freshness to the fragrance.

Strength and longevity are excellent. Name is hilarious (I keep saying "womanity" in a hushed whisper), bottle is all kinds of German expressionist sci-fi awesomeness. This is what makes being a fumehead so fun.

huh, interesting notes. The fig tree is the tree of life, explaining existance, the ultimate womb.

Then cavier eggs another symbol of life

The fig itself (from the inside) is also a great example of life. hahaha

Cant belive I havn't sniffed this yet

actually, I cant remember if it's was hinduism, or it's predicesor.... that uses the fig as a representation of all planets.

Remember people, we are all just organisms made up of organism... basically we are an organism within an organism.. that's within an organism... that's.. ooh hell you get the idea... which makes up the one whole organism..

lol -- what a cool concept for a perfume!

This is my scent...it's sweet and sour at the same time, it feels nice to wear it on sunny days. Really makes me happy...and I don't really get the problem that people have with it, it's just a normal scent and for me it's not comlicated at all..smells a bit different with the salty caviar and a sweet hint of fig...but it's simple as can be and very pleasant as well...
I think it's the best from all of the Mugler perfume.
People are all excited about scents like Pink Sugar or Marc Jacobs Daisy but I think they are much more ordinary...

A little salty and fleshy. Theres a meaty smell to this and it lasts absolutely forever. I sprayed this once to my wrist and the coat I had on at the time absolutely reaks of it...I put it in my wardrobe and a week later all my clothes smelt of this...over 2 months later now when you open my wardrobe door you still get a lingering smell of this. Good if you love it...bad if not.
I will give this another try at some point...I think everything deserves a second chance but Im still not sure ill love it which is a shame because the funky bondage bottle is amazing.

On my friend, this is one of the greatest fruity citrus scent I have smelled. On me, it smells like a mixture of lemon juice and saliva. It lasts for ages and projects so well.

I just had shivers go up my spine as the thought ocurred to me that Mugler has discontinued this and just as well before all those horrors who molest their bottles of Red Door and Angel and Giorgio get a hold of this. All those smokers who douse themselves in perfume to hide the smoke may see this poor little thing and jump on it because it does have a smokey aroma at times so they will think "Oh great, something to cover my smokers smell".

Could you imagine if they got a hold of this and sprayed it violently the way they spray Red Door! that is just an apocolypse scenario waiting to happen. I am so glad this perfume has avoided the cruelty that poor Red Door and the likes have suffered. Seriously there should be a welfare organisation for perfumes which are abused!

Well I was the idiot who put a review on here and said this smelled like mince meat and blood. Well today I was testing perfumes just to see some new ones and I thought I will spray this one, one more time because I have been annoyed with myself that I don't like it. I don't have any Mugler perfumes so I would like at least one to add to my collection. I sprayed it and I was blown away how nice it was.

Many reviews have said it is like a fresh sea breeze and I just could not smell that every time I tested it. Today was the day it all happened for me. I loved it I kept sniffing the card and couldn't believe I had disliked it so much.

The lady at the store said it has been discontinued and so they had it on huge discount because they will not be getting any more in. I tested a few other perfumes a few of the Alien's and Cheeky Alice etc but I kept coming back to the card with Womanity and every time I did it smelled nicer and nicer.

I can still smell a faint metallic smell but it is in context with the theme of this perfume. I purchased a large perfume not the edt they didn't have it. It has a nice little pouch to protect the bottle and if you disconnect the lid you could wear it as a ring if you like edgy jewellry. On my skin it is pretty much the same as on the card in the store. It is very strong so no complaints about projection or staying power. I think it is one to be appreciated from a slight distance if you sniff your wrist too close it can smell quite strong but as I move around it wafts around me literally like a fresh sea breeze slightly citrus but also the fig is a fleshy fruity smell with a little smoke or dry sand smell in the back ground. I like Sunkissed Glow by J Lo and Malibu by Pamela Anderson so I like this too because of the sandy beachy smell it has.

It is not citrus like Addidas or Nike perfume it is a natural outdoors kind of fresh.

I love it and I am so glad I tried it one last time I could have missed out on this so sad it is discontinued!!! :(

I bought this flanker on sale at Marshalls for $20 so bought 2 (blind purchase). I wore it to work and was mortified! It just smelled "strange" to me because I am a gourmand and sweet fruity lover.....I wished I could have washed it off but I was at work, doing my usual 9 hour day! I got so many compliments at work, from men, that I was in shock. Then I went shopping after work and got compliments from two teen girls working at a department store (talking to each other saying that they loved my perfume)...

I think the caviar notes are strong to the wearer yet it is the fig that works with the person's own body chemistry and gives off a sensual warmness to others.

I had this fragrance all wrong! I wear it once a month and notice that I get tons of compliments in general. That means a lot to me because I wear perfume EVERY DAY, even on days I don't go outside at all.....

The first time I tried this was at an airport last summer. It smelled absolutely revolting! Like rank unwashed lady bits. However, recently I decided to give it a second chance, because I wanted to like it (to be absolutely honest, I wanted to show my friend just how awful it was). I tried it in a department store and it smelled surprisingly nice. In fact, it continued to smell nicer and nicer and stronger and stronger. My friend who was with me said that she loved it on me. I agreed. Very figgy and very feminine. However, it did give me a bad headache for the rest of the day. Probably won't get a FB just yet.

I wanted to share this little experience with you.

I have allready written a review about WOMANITY somewhere below (I thought it was a little too heavy, especially in the opening). I didn't bother to test the EAU POUR ELLES, since I'm really not into fruity-berry fragrances. But I was in my local perfumeshop the other day and decided to buy the perfumed body milk. Just like that without testing.
My initial regret for spending so much money on a lotion that I wasn't sure I would like, disappeared when I applied it.

Aaaaaaaaaaah....

THIS is what I wanted from WOMANITY, this is what I love about it. It smells EXACTLY like WOMANITY, but softer, way softer and very close to the skin.
You get the citrusfruits (seriously, there MUST be citrusfruits in WOMANITY) and the fig, and then the wonderful, glorious scent of a body that just took a naked swim in the salty ocean.
Sexy, beautiful and oh so FREE!
I think this will replace my ALIEN bodylotion, which, allthough it's nice, really doesn't smell anything like the perfume itself.

Yes, yes, I know, a review about a lotion on a perfumewebsite, that's not right, but seriously, try the lotion :)

I usually don't like female fragrances since they all smell the same. Always with fruity or floral notes. They all smell the same to me. However, Womanity is probably the best female fragrance I've ever smelled in my whole life. It smells so good that I wouldn't mind wearing it (I'm a guy).
This embodies perfectly what a woman is nowadays. It's feminine in a way that feminists won't be offended by this fragrance. Also, every man loves this fragrance on a woman and consider that men don't really like female fragrances.
This is definitely a masterpiece, best female fragrance ever created.
It's unique, sophisticated and peculiar in a wonderful way. All women should sniff this at least once in their life.

Como eu disse que faria dias atrás, no post abaixo, eu estou voltando para falar sobre as impressões que tive no decorrer destes dias.
Para usar este perfume há que seguir-se algumas regras:

1- Jamais borrifar diretamente na pele; fazer uma nuvem de perfume e deixar cair as gotinhas em você, somente na pele nua, antes de vestir a roupa, e vestir-se somente depois que a pele absorveu o líquido; a fixação é muito maior que qualquer outro que eu conheci, e este perfume é mutante, e precisa da pele, da temperatura corporal, da temperatura ambiente para que a mágica aconteça.
2 - Nunca use sem tomar banho; a pele precisa estar limpa, porque qualquer outro resíduo vai mudar sua evolução;
3- Nunca use mais do que 2 borrifadas para criar esta nuvem; a evolução fica mais intensa do que o desejado.
4- Não deixe cair os cabelos.
5- Nunca use logo pela manhã se for dar carona para alguém, pois algumas pessoas não suportam cheiros doces logo cedo.

Como se vê, não é um perfume para qualquer pessoa(homem ou mulher); é de verdade uma questão de química da pele; precisa de um ritual para usá-lo, e sempre, sempre, sempre o bom senso tem que prevalecer: moderação ao usá-lo

Tem sim que experimentar antes de comprar, aviso que eu sempre ignorei outras vezes, desta eu tenho que recomendá-lo.

(ENGLISH)
As I said days ago that would, in the post below, I'm coming to talk about the impressions I had during these days.
To use this perfume is to follow a few rules:

1 - Never spray directly on the skin, making a cloud of perfume and let the drops fall on you, only on bare skin, before putting on
