Arrived on the market in 2007, one year after its masculine counterpart, Unforgivable Woman is an oriental floral fragrance. David Apel is the perfumer responsible for developing this scent and the result represents a sensual fragrance, aimed at a bad girl who is passionate enough to match Sean “Diddy” Combs’ aspirations.
Last summer, during our vacation I asked my wife to help me with this test, mainly because I considered an acquisition and is spite of the fact that the scent was interesting, the initial thought never happened. Probably, because Unforgivable was one of my former perfumes (bought it in the autumn of 2008) and subsequent to the moment when I was done with the bottle, it somehow disappointed me.
The construction Unforgivable Woman makes appeal to piña colada note, reportedly one Sean Combs’s favorites. The fragrance opens on a citrus accord, obtained with bergamot, bitter orange and grapefruit. Notes of piña colada, orange blossom petals, cassia, apple and pear are added to the composition. In the first moments, Unforgivable Woman feels very fruity. Then, as the scent advances into the mid development a floral aroma is brought forward, in a mixture of orange blossom, violet, jasmine, Lily-of-the-Valley, rose and cyclamen. The dry down is the part in which the fragrance turns more sensual (it has a fast development!) thanks to accords of patchouli and cedar, mixed with sandalwood, oakmoss, sweet vanilla, Tonka bean, and Coco de Mer (a palm found exclusively in Seychelles Islands).
The shape of the bottle that holds Unforgivable Woman is a re-interpretation of its masculine counterpart in a beige color scheme, while the video advertisement is a typical Diddy product, in which the women and the luxury are playing the main parts.
