I purchased this in the EDT (based on the good reviews and the fact that I love Chanel No. 22 and No. 5 EDT) but this smells like pure men's aftershave on me. Yuck. I understand that everyone's body chemistry and pH are different, but geez oh man, this stuff is not good on me - pure men's aftershave. Ugh. It's going back today.
After reading the reviews I decided to go out and buy the eau de par fume. I find the smell to be very distinctive and classy. I love the fact that it is so different from other perfumes. The smell is soft and not too overpowering.
I only use one spray to last me through out the day. This perfume is a definite repurchase.
Perfect for all the times of a year. Modern,extremely chic ideal for young girls who want something classic and modern chic together.HG for me and definetely i'll buy again...update: It's the fifth bottle that i have used,still one of my favorite...In the site it says that it has absolut jasmin and rose and notes of florence iris,well i do not know which one is which the thing is it smells to me divine no matter what it has in it...The review is for EDP...I will buy it again and i will try the extract the next time...
Something very strange has happened. I used to like Coco Mlle. I thought it was a bit mainstream, pretty sharp and orange-y, nothing spectacular but nice enough to wear every once in a while. But now... It's fast becoming my HG! Now this lovely, pink juice morphs into an orange-marzipan, creamy and very classy fragrance on my skin and it lasts for hours. It's actually quite delicious, something I would consider tasting, were it a dessert – yet not overly sweet in any way. Yes, I know, a lot of people think this is for the 20's crowd but as far as I'm concerned, a woman can wear any perfume as long as she wears it well, regardless of her age. That's the beauty of a fine fragrance, isn't it? :)
Be prepared to receive loads of compliments when you wear this. My absolute favourite perfume. Would never be without a bottle of this. Very classy perfume, great lasting power, but be warned you only need one application of this or the scent will be too overpowering.
Coco Mademoiselle exudes CLASS. This is THE go to perfume for anyone who wishes to be respected and admired. I find that everytime I wear it I feel like the classy, sophistiated, beautiful young person I strive to be. Also, the compliments I receive when wearing this are numerous! People stop me to ask what I'm wearing, and I notice people discretely trying to inhale me when I get close to them! The smell is appropriate for any age but, I see this better suited for the 18-29 set. I myself being only 18, find this fragrance to be sophisticated enough that I smell respectable, but Coco Mademoiselle still has a youthful, edgy quality that is also age appropriate. I must say that the Eau de Parfum and the Eau de Toillette smell completely different, KNOW THAT! I strongly recommend the Eau de Parfum because the smell is less fruity then the Eau de Toillette, which can get nauseating after a while. Not only that, but the lasting power is 3 times as good, so you can (and should) use it sparingly. There's no need for more than 3 spritzes with this one. This is best suited for nighttime use, I wear it daily, but it's great for special events as well. I own the 3.4oz bottle, which runs about $110.00, but it's CHANEL and it's woth every penny! If that is too steep for some of you, then I suggest you try getting your bottle on Ebay. This and Frederic Malle's "CARNAL FLOWER" are my fragrance soul mates! I suggest both of them to everyone, but particularly the younger crowd. I was going through a phase where I got rid of every fragrance I used to own because I didn't want to smell like a typical, generic, "teenager", but like the confident, sexy, young woman I'm becoming. Coco Mademoiselle is the loveliest place to start.
If your astrology sign is scorpio, your current age is 20( I have been wearing this since I was 15), and if this turns out beautiful on your skin like me then this is the PERFECT perfume for you and the eau de parfum 3.4 oz is the best choice! for the fall and winter season. This perfume smells Lovely on me the notes that appear the most are Begamot,very light rose,and more jasmine,yummy vanilla and a little white musk now this does have patchouli but I have learned to appreciate this b/c this patchouli keeps this perfume super long lasting! like the most lasting perfume I have ever owned for example 6am till the next morning! yes this is true so I love the patchouli .
I alwways keep this in my room in a dark place and it stays inside the original box to protect it from the light. It's not good to store perfume out in the open and it is bad to keep your perfume in the bathroom.
the fragrance notes are
Orange, Bergamot, Grapefruit,
Litchi, Rose, Italian Jasmine,
Indonesian Patchouli, Haitian Vetiver, Bourbon Vanilla, White Musk,
Ode to Coco MME:
You are my Favorite, my true HG. You never let me down, turn rancid on my skin or fail to evoke a "MMMMMM you smell Great!" from my DH. You are not too"Old" or too "young", you do not have a season- you work equally well in the heat or the cold. You are not too spicy or too floral and you last all day! I love your EDT but really prefer you a bit more intense, the EDP. I will reach for you always....
Please don't ever change!
Love, love, LOVE this scent - and I'm not the only one, judging by the very high ratings all around for CM :) It's a beautiful, sophisticated, and yet... playful scent that's very Chanel, and yet, very "now" at the same time. Unlike the original Coco, it's not so old-fashioned as to turn younger generations off, but has enough of "classic" ingredients to keep older generations interested. I own this in EDP, EDT, body wash, AND lotion... it's more or less my signature. The EDT I'm not too fond of - it has very little staying power (about two hours on my skin) and is a little more citrusy and generic than the EDP, which is absolutely glorious. A girl OR woman who wears CM is likely fashionable, confident, sophisticated, elegant, charming, well-mannered, and both respectful and respected at the same time. There is always a hint of the mystery about her, though she doesn't close herself off to the rest of the world either. She's essentially chic and somebody who'll make it big in the world she lives in.
Very obviously, CM is my favorite Chanel fragrance. It's great for almost any season (I'd recommend the EDT in summer, though) and any occasion, since it's fresh enough to be worn during the day and sophisticated enough for nighttime use. I normally envision it on women in their late twenties to late thirties, but, I'm a teen, and I use this as well. I won't repeat all the notes here, only state that the fragrance is floriental and starts off with "citrus" notes which dry down to floral ones, and finally, different woody scents. The mixture is done VERY well and the end result is very high-class. Not a scent for "everybody" - only for the gals who can pull it off :)
beautiful fruity floral scent not sweet nor pungent. deep and sexy, great for all seassons and all occasions. excellant stying power.I allways get compliments when wearing it.
