Woman by Donna Karan

A fragrance for multi-faceted women


Woman by Donna Karan is inspired by all that women are… It celebrates their vision, generosity, and desire to inspire the world. It reflects beauty, intuition, but also vulnerability. ‘When I approached the project, I wove this idea of the multi-faceted woman into all aspects of the process’, explains Donna Karan. Woman is composed of woody notes (‘ingredients that are traditionally found in masculine fragrances’) wrapped with white flowers. According to Donna Karan, the fragrance embodies the ‘dichotomy of softness and strength’ of each woman.


A woody-floral scent, Donna Karan Woman is brightened with orange blossom. The two main ingredients of this fragrance are Haitian vetiver and creamy sandalwood. Perfumer : Anne Flipo, IFF.
