I've stalked this fragrance at Sephora for months and finally purchased last week. This is my first Chanel fragrance purchase and I'm very pleased. It's long lasting, classy and young. Other Chanel fragrances I've smelled seem very heady and "old money"- like. Mademoiselle manages to be very classy, yet fresh at the same time- not stuffy. This is the "new money" fragrance in the Chanel house, for sure.
Recently, I've only purchased higher-end scents in the Bond no 9 range, but this fragrance is causing me to consider mid-level fragrances again.
Only downside is that, for someone who prefers to not smell like anyone else and have a signature scent, this fragrance is very common and easily accessible to the masses.
UPDATE: I wore this in Miami in January during a girls trip and received compliments on it This is definitely and "event" scent, not something to be worn around the house or with your man, but out and about. It's a real "notice me" scent, head's will turn!
I discovered this favourite by sheer coincidence. I had received a sample after purchasing Chance and now I love it more than my original purchase. Actually, that is an understatement; I love the scent so much that I spray my room with my precious Coco Mademoiselle parfum. This scent really does smell "sparkling" and it makes me smile regardless of what mood I'm in. It is especially wonderful to spray this on after a long and gruelling day. I find it to be suitable for any weather save for the really hot and sticky days as it can be both light and airy (the sparkling citrus aspect) or deep and sexy (the vetiver and patchouli). I just can't get enough of this! I wish there were candles or some kind of home fragrance version so I wouldn't have to use my parfum as my room spray! I know, I know, I'm nuts!
This is a great fragrance. It is good anytime (day, night) and any season. This is one of my staples.
Sampled, agree with reviewer who sensed citrus, then roses later. It lasted on me, but I am just not feeling it. It does smell modern in that it has a sharpness my nose might get sick of quickly, despite an over all pleasant scent.
At first sniff I absolutely LOVED this perfume. It opened with citrus notes that immediately drew me in as I am a huge fan of orange blossom/ neroli. After about 5 minutes on my skin I realized that all I could smell were the rose and jasmine notes. Unfortunately rose smells terrible on me and reminds me of little old ladies. Ugh. Obviously the drydown of a fragrance differs on each person but I didn't expect such a rosey scent. I gave two stars for the longevity of this fragrance- it didn't fade for at least 8 hours.
I love this perfume ,people always comment on it .Only downside is the price as I get through a lot of it and its not cheap!
I've been in love with this scent since my sister introduced me to it 7 years ago. It's become my weekday mainstay: light and floral enough for someone in their 20s, sophisticated enough for a professional setting. It's also the only perfume I've ever gotten compliments on! On me, it fades to a pleasant but very mellow base note after about 5 hours, and after 7 even I can barely tell I'm wearing it.
I went to las vegas last year and this in the parfum version was the first thing on my "to purchase" list. In Australia the full sized parfum bottle costs just under $300 but I managed to get this in the states for only $140. Such a ridiculous price gap, but I'll try not to get into a spiel about how ridiculously overpriced cosmetics are here in Australia and just get onto saying how much I ADORE this. This is the smell of heaven. I'm cautious of wearing Chanel perfumes in fear of smelling like a rich old lady but this one has a very youthful sort of feminine scent to it. I dread the day mine runs out because I know I won't be able to repurchase it. I only use it on special occasions because really, it is like liquid gold.
This is the creme de la creme for me a lovely perfume expensive so I tend to keep this for special occasions and when I go out men have commented how nice I smell. Quiet strong for me so I tend to spray it inside my top or evening wear rather than my neck. The scent lasts all night even into the following day.
I bought this perfume for y sister on her birthday and I must say...WOW. It's so amazing and warm yet elegant and oh so classy. I would love it for me but that's her signature scent so I'll stay away for respect, lol. But seriously if you're looking for a gift for a nice lady (and you're NOT on a budget) this is perfect. I would give it 6 lips but I cant :(
