On paper, I get the tangy, juicy fig chutney and lovely caviar. I get the impression of a very tasty, spicy dish, but I wasn't sure wether I would like to wear it. Because, well, it's not a sweet dish, it's a savory one. Smelling like cookies is one thing, but smelling like "real" food?
On my skin however, it turned out to be a strange, fresh, fruity ashlike scent.
I HATE the smell of ashtrays and cold fireplaces. But here, in Womanity TOF it smells great. Maybe it's more warm ashes, I don't know. I don't get anything smoky, just the ashes.
It's accompanied with a sharp, fresh, peppery spicy note. In the drydown I get a juicy milky fig and something "doughy". I believe others might have mentioned this note when describing the original Womanity.
I do not get any salt though. And I'm happy about that, because that was a real problem in the original. It was just a salt bomb.
I don't get the metallic bloodnote I noticed in the original, which is a good thing as well.
All in all I think this is a better balanced version of the original Womanity. It's a great, fresh scent, one of the few "fresh summery scents" I like. It's also very sexy and strange. I really love it, it's very unique (well, unique, it smells abit like the original of course, but apart from that, there's nothing similar out there).
