A flanker that brings the original to a new dimension
The opening of the Taste of Fragrance Womanity is like the drydown of the original Womanity: rounded salty fig. Then the chutney makes its entrance. Its spiciness, saltiness and sourness fill the grey zone between sweet fig and salty caviar and sea water and smoothes the transition between these two complete opposite aspects.

The salty fig base of Womanity is still easily recognizable. However, it's not crisp fig and caviar to be eaten raw like the original; instead it's smooth and savoury, like an elaborated gastronomic course. After 5 or 6 hours, the fruitiness takes over the gourmand chutney and the whole fragrance mellows into a cozy sweet fig scent.

If I am to compare the original Womanity, Eau pour Elles and ToF, I'd say the original is no doubt the version with the most edge, EpE is innocent and more playful but is still a woody-fruity scent like the original, while ToF has a significant gourmand vibe thanks to the incredible chutney note. If the original is like the blue cheese (we all know they don't smell alike but they're both loved or hated. ^.^), EpE like fromage frais with strawberry coulis, then ToF must be the main course accompanied by a Roquefort sauce.

Overall, I'd say ToF captures the spirit of the original Womanity while giving out a complete different ambiance. It'd be easier to appreciated compared to the original, like previous reviews stated. The sillage is moderate and the longevity is at least 10h. It definitely worths a try.

Less Salty; More Pleasant
Womanity is such a love it or hate it kind of fragrance, but in my opinion, this Taste of Fragrance flanker is more likely to impress. It is less sharp, better balanced and richer on the skin, with the fig chutney really shining through.

I can wear Taste of Fragrance Womanity with ease, as I don't fear that anyone would ever find themselves offended by the way I smell. The odd, fishy caviar accord is all but diminished, and the fig accord is a lot more foody and polite.

It's difficult to classify this fragrance, as it's not quite a gourmand, but not a fruity floral or an aquatic either. If anything, it's a unique and fresh take on fig; both tasty and tangy.

For those of you that are avoiding this fragrance due to an intense dislike for the original, you should give it a chance. You may be surprised. While the majority of Thierry Mugler flankers can be tedious at the best of times, I'm really loving this Taste of Fragrance range. The added gourmand qualities have really 'amped up' and improved the overall compositions, while remaining true to the originals. Fig chutney goes perfectly with Womanity.

Unfortunately the lasting strength wasn't fantastic on my skin. The sillage wasn't as powerful as I thought it might be either, tending to soften after the strong fig opening. I will be using up my sample, but in regards to buying a full bottle, I'm undecided.
