Summary: What a surprise. The concept of "woman" has been linked for so long with flowers and and candy and Chanel no 5 (though not all at the same time!), that I simply assumed that DKNY WOMAN was going to be some sort of quintessentially feminine perfume. No, not at all. Far from it, in fact! To my nose, WOMAN is completely androgynous. I won't say that it's masculine, but it's certainly not feminine. Primarily the scent is that of wood--or its aromachemical surrogates.
