Pleasant to all and painful to none
Before she topples for good I'll quickly review this unnumbered lady from the house of Betty Barclay. She is a pretty one after all.
The citric head note has turned already in my bottle and is rather piercing now. The hyacinth must be a water hyacinth, at least I can't explain the clear aquatic freshness otherwise. The only contribution of the peach seems to be a general airy fruityness that does not at all recall a fruit salad. Cassia is difficult as it is ambiguous: It can refer to Chinese Cinnamon (smells intensely of cinnamon, a bit sharp and with a slight hay-note of coumarin) as well as to Needle Bush, the blossom of which is used in perfumery, but I have no idea what it smells like. But as I can't detect anything like cinnamon, I suppose it must be Needle Bush in this fragrance.

The heart note continues the fresh, light and airy character of the fragrance. I cannot identify jasmin and lily, there is only a general light and airyly fresh floral scent. The whole fragrance is slightly aquatic and a bit green. In addition to this florality (slightly synthetic due to the aquatic note) I smell something a bit fruity, raspberries perhaps? Maybe half a hint of Williams pear?
The base note stays just that, a base, nothing to sniff out individually, apart from tonka bean maybe, as there is a little of a bright scent of vanilla and hay. The rest of the base note is just soft and warm and supplies a foothold to the etheric florals notes.

"Woman" is a scent devoted to freshness and airiness. It is contained (apart from the very distinct aquatic note maybe) and surrounds the wearer with a feminine and well-groomed air of delicately flowery freshness.
For this reason I can picture this fragrance as a utility scent for shower gels, washing detergent and such. It is suitable for the office as well.
