When all is said and done, you'll believe God is a Woman! I absolutely love all of the fragrances Ariana Grande has released over the years, so when I found out that she was coming out with another I was so excited! Her song "God is a Woman" is also so iconic and one of my all-time favorites, so that made me look forward to it even more. I have been using it consistently for several months so I will able to give the most in-depth review I possibly can of this product.

In the United States, God is a Woman* is sold exclusively at Ulta in three sizes; 1 oz for $45, 1.7 oz for $55, and 3.4 oz for $65. A travel size bottle is also available for $24. This pricing is consistent throughout the rest of Ariana's fragrances, so if you were looking to purchase another scent this is the range to expect. It is also available internationally at select retailers.

God is a Woman* is cruelty free, 100% vegan and made with clean ingredients that are 91% naturally derived. The carton is also recyclable and the base the glass bottle is in is also made from 60% plant-based and sustainable materials. All of her fragrance releases* have been cruelty free, but this is the first time the formula is 100% vegan, which is always a step in the right direction towards sustainability, especially for a brand as big as Ariana's. They are also working on making all of her past and future releases vegan as well in the coming years!

Top: Ambrette, Juicy Pear
Middle: Orris, Turkish Rose Petals
Base: Madagascar Vanilla, Creamy Cedarwood

When I first apply this, the note that is most prominent is pear. It is an overall fruity scent, but the prominence of the pear makes it stand out from many comparable fragrances from other brands and even the rest of Ariana's range. The cedarwood and vanilla balance it out and adds a sense of warmth to the fragrance. There are also some slight floral notes, but it isn't very prominent. It is such a dreamy and unique scent that is unlike any fragrance I have smelled before.

When looking at the rest of her range, it isn't the most long-lasting, but it does have a decent wear time. I found that spraying it on my clothes instead of just on my skin helps the scent linger for longer. It all depends if wear-time is important to you when deciding on purchasing fragrances. Personally, I prefer a lighter scent so I don't mind if it doesn't last all day. 

When comparing it to her other releases, I would say it fits in the family of Cloud, R.E.M and Moonlight. It has the muskiness and cedarwood elements of Cloud and Moonlight, but with some of the more prominent floral and fruit notes of R.E.M. If you're a fan of any of those fragrances already, God is a Woman may be a good scent to add to your own collection. 

I love the packaging of the fragrance too and all of the marketing photos that were released to promote it. It perfectly encapsulates femineity and sophistication while still smelling fresh and youthful.

Many of Ariana's fragrances have a removable base for the glass bottle to be placed in. For God is a Woman, the rectangular clear lilac bottle comes with a grey plastic base that is supposed to look like it is made of stone. It has angular cuts throughout to make it look more realistic and give a little bit of texture. It also has a cutout of a gem shape in the center to reveal the lilac glass underneath and an engraving of "Ariana Grande" on the front. Although it is made of plastic it doesn't feel cheap at all, it actually feels very sturdy and has a surprising amount of weight to it. It isn't as flashy as any of the other fragrances in her line, but it is still a very pretty design. I like that it isn't as bulky as some of the others, such as the big plastic broken heart base that came with the Thank U, Next perfume a few years ago. The God is a Woman* bottle inside the base is very easy to hold and apply. I do wish they incorporated some of the floral design that was in the photoshoot and the outside box, that would have made the bottle a bit more memorable in my opinion. 

Overall, God is a Woman* is a beautiful addition to Ariana's growing line of fragrances*. The pear and cedarwood notes create a unique blend of fruity warmth that will be able to appeal to a wide range of users. I also love the sustainable approach they took to this launch, as well. I'm looking forward to seeing the way the brand implements clean, conscious beauty into future launches. This has quickly become a staple fragrance for me ever since I purchased it! In my fragrance reviews I always note that everyone will have a different experience based on their own body chemistry, but I do think this will work for many people's preferences.
