Launched in 2017 but hit the shelves here in the UK in September 2018, Ralph Lauren Woman is absolutely delicious!
Created by master perfumer Anne Flipo, Ralph Lauren Woman is classed as a floral fragrance.
It’s been some time since I last reviewed a fragrance. Catching a cold and temporarily losing my sense of smell meant that for three weeks ‘Ellie couldn’t smell’! But it is great to be back and I’ve been so, so excited to bring you a review on this fragrance and I can revel in its deliciousness!
From the first spray, you can immediately tell that this is an ultra-feminine and warm fragrance. As I take in the top notes it’s slightly juicy with pear, rhubarb and blackcurrant, but it’s not really citrusy. It’s fresh and warm. I can definitely smell the pear and blackcurrant.
As it begins to dry down it opens out into a lovely floral heart where you have tuberose, one of the main essences of the Ralph Lauren Woman, and there is orange blossom and Turkish rose. So far a gorgeous floral heart melding and blending with those juicy top notes. Absolutely wonderful!
As the dry down continues the vibrant woody notes of the base come into play with Sandalwood making it powdery and creamy and I’m getting the very slightest hint of hazelnut. Nothing overwhelming. It’s warm with a hit of woods and rosiness softened and sweetened by the pear. Very feminine, mysterious and sultry.
Those woods are going to make this a fragrance with good longevity. When I’ve worn it, even when I couldn’t smell, Timbo commented that the Ralph Lauren Woman lasted a good six hours and more on my skin.
The Ralph Lauren Woman is a wonderful fragrance for someone that likes to dress up or down. It can be worn casually during the day but is equally heavier and warmer for the evening.
If you like fragrances with blackcurrant and woods, such as the Giorgio Armani Si or perhaps the YSL Black Opium with those blackcurrant notes or the Dior Poison Girl with almonds then the Ralph Lauren Woman is definitely a fragrance to try!
