It smells like Estee Lauder Youth Dew. The top notes are very spicy and overwhelming. But it dries down to a comforting vanilla.
I won't buy this again because to wear this, there is a downtime of two hours before I really enjoy it.

Review of the EDP: one of the most beautiful fragrances ever created. There is a clean soaring note that anchors the middle of this frag - it must be the ylang-ylang - lasting until the dry-down, which is a smouldering amber fire that just goes on and on. It is SO strong (and my chemistry snacks on fragrances) that I've thought of getting the EDT, but the EDP is so nicely-crafted. I gave the packaging only 3 lippies, as this (and all 'classic' Chanel bottles) will leak like Satan on airplane trips.

Oh, so gorgeous Coco! This is really a grand fragrance! Actually this is fragrance you can call it by that name. I'm so fed up with all new mainstreet releases. It must be a difficult job to create something new that stand up with these oldies. As I am going towards my 40s (sic!) it's nice to now old things are not worse than fresher ones :-)
For many years I haven't cared about this scent and Chanel's in general, because I felt they were too ladylike, even if, to be honest I like this type of scent. I'm a longterm devotee of good old Guerlains, especially Samsra and Nahema, so I'm used to complex and strong perfume. Chanel's ones have been too aldehydic for me. #5 is unbearable IMO because it smells like public toilet soap with some jasmin in it. Thi is what #5 does to my skin, but I have to say, I hardly met someone who wear it beautifully.
Allure in Edp (more mellow and less pungent than EdT) was a nice take on Chanel for a while. Coco is not pungent nor frilly nor aldehydic-powdery-toilet-y :-)
Coco is just a beautiful strong floral oriental, classical for sure but not out of place! It's pure elegance in a bottle with a hint of passion and wild, highly refined but not too tamed down sensuality.
The opening is fresh floral, the heart of the scent is a glorious deep rose mixed with spices and the bottom is vanilla heaven!
It works great with my chemistry and leaves a lovelly aura around.
I can see it as perfect in winter and autumn, still it depends on personal tastes to use this kind of fragrance in summer too.
Coco radiates from my skin speaking of inner elegance and self-awareness. It will never be down. Best worn with elegant also modern outfit, not necessary flat office formal one. The hint of passion in Coco requires a full free woman, not one who is constraint in manlike grey suits to work along with men and need to be taken seriously (old society patterns). Spare it on workplace and wear it freely (with sense!) when you go out for fun and seduction, especially if you can't afford buying it very often. Trash out frilly-wrilly Britney Spears's and the alikes and give yourself a true perfume.
The only 2 defaults I can find which made me took of 1 lippie are:
- a slight touch of broth-like smell maybe due to spices. It comes out every now and then while wearing it. Not always.
- Coco is a very common smell due to large spread among women. That's too bad for me. I think Chanel have sold thousand of litres of Coco around the world. A SA in a shop me told me that Chanel's Coco is the top-seller fragrance for everyone, even if people don't even know how it smells, they just buy it unsniffed to give it as a present based on the Chanel claim. Many moms and aunties own this and wear it along with old style not so loud outfits. This is the reason why it could appeal as "old lady" to many. It's a matter of memory, not of juice!
I don't wear it daily but I keep a small bottle of EdT in my bag for smelling purposes.

Ok, NOW I understand what the hype is about! :)
I got some of this lovely scent today and am in love with it. It is the most beautiful, unfolding, mellow, sweet, spicy, ladylike, sexy, mature, playful stuff I've found. The reviewer below me is so right-on: save your money and get the real thing. Wow, to think of all the bottles of so-so fragrance I've bought, when Coco has been waiting for me :). I'm really happy to have found this treasure and will definitely repurchase. Oh, and this review is for the EDT, which lasts all day on me :)!

Finally! My bottle of Coco finally came in. Can you imagine our local Nordstrom store being completely sold out of this fragrance? I had to order it and wait for it to arrive, but it was way worth the wait. I do so love this fragrance. It is very lady like and not over the top. The smell is luring and last all day for me. Sometimes I take out my little purse roll on (I got free for having to wait for my order ;-), and I use it to touch up. Not because I need to, I just like smelling the fresh smell all over again. This is a wonderful addition to my collection of fragrances. The bottle is old fashioned to say the least, but not un-attractive either. I got the big bottle because I cannot afford to keep buying it over and over, and the large bottle should last me for a year or so. I do use a lot of perfume so I will have to wait and see how long it does last. I waited a long time to add this one to my collection and I am not disappointed. #5 has never smelled the same on me as it does for some women, and I hate that, but Coco smells wonderful on me and on other ladies I notice is wearing it. I love the woods/leather additions to this fragrance. Save up and make a purchase for yourself. You all deserve it, and you will be so glad you did. Suggestion...forfeit that cup of Starbucks, ( I did) it won't take that long at $4.00 a cup, and soon you will have enough to make the splurge. It is a grand perfume.
I notice most reviewers state that is is the EDT edition they are using. ;-) Well I am unsure what that means, but the one I use is the parfume if that helps, not the toile water. ;-) Probably spelled that wrong. Why do they call it toile't water???? Sounds dreadful! Where does the little hyphen go anyway? before the e? after the e? Anyway I use the parfume not perfume, wish I could use the perfume some day before I am no longer of this world though. ;-) Love this fragrance.

This review is for the EDT. Coco is a work of art....I don't know of any other fragrance that smells like Coco. This is a serious, complex fragrance where the opening starts out spicy, then turns to a deep floral, finally drying down to a musky vanilla. Coco is perfect for colder days in fall and winter. Undeniably a Chanel fragrance that screams elegance but at the same time I find Coco just smells so good and comforting. I can wear this to a formal dinner party as well as at home. I initially purchased my bottle of Coco 15 years ago and the fragrance has not turned. That being said, this is one of the few fragrances my DH does not like (he says it's too "perfumy"). When I purchase again it will be in the form of Parfum.
Edit May 8/09. Just tried the Coco EDT and EDP available in department stores now and I do find a difference between the Coco available now and the bottle of Coco EDT I bought in the 1990s. First of all, I would say if you're going to buy a bottle of Coco today, go with the EDP as I found the EDT to be extremely fleeting on my skin. The EDP has quite a bit more substance and lasting power. The Coco EDP of today is less spicy and more floral than the old bottle of Coco EDT I have however, is still a great fragrance. Now, if I could find a bottle of Coco parfum to compare to.

I've been exploring more spicy, "mature" fragrances lately and decided to give this one a try. I like Coco Mademoiselle but it seems like a lot of people wear it and as I am growing older, I thought I would try Coco for something more "grown up." I have tried this a few times, and I just don't care for it. It's pretty strong when you first put it on and a bit spicy, then as it dries down I just get a lot of vanilla, which isn't my favorite, and it smells like the 80s. The bottle is gorgeous, don't get me wrong, and I a lot of people rave about this scent being "hot" and that's great for them, but it's just not for me, not yet anyway.

I'm not shy to ask a stranger what type of fragrance their wearing hee hee. That is how I found out about this lovely and elegant fragrance. I receive compliments everytime I wear this. It is well worth the extra cash!!!!
It's a strong fragrance and little dabs on your wrists, etc. will go a long way. That helps since it is a pricey fragrance.
One of my "must have" favorites!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

One of the most beautiful orientals, best used on special occasions. I love it, but like the reviewer before me, I don't wear it as an every day fragrance. I was fortunate enough to swap for the parfum version, and I was very excited to get it and wore just a drop while I was running errands, and kept noticing how strong it was. Gorgeous, of course, but a bit overpowering. =)
To answer another reviewer's question, I looked up the history of Chanel Coco, and found it was launched in 1984. It was actually created by her perfumers for her personal use, and released after her death in her honor.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Other Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
A wonderful spicy oriental, I find myself craving it on a winter's night. However it's a little too strong for me to wear everyday.
Edit: Just read the review below me, I thought Coco was released in the mid 80's?

I adore this fragrance and I find the parfum version is my favourite, try ebay for the miniature 2.5ml edition and you will not be disapointed if you're after a sensual floral orientall, just one small dab on either arm is enough to transform you, a teeey tiny bottle lasts me months used regularly, delightful.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Black, Medium Eyes: Brown
Very sophisticated and sesual fragrance. Maybe too elegant for me most of the time because I prefer casual style, but I reach for it everytime I wear little black dress:-)
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Other, Fair, Cool Hair: Brunette, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Green
There is nothing i can really say that hasn't already been said!
This is my HG perfume, i wear it most days, the EDT, because the EDP sometimes gives me a headache. It seems to last about 9 or 10 hours on me, and people always tell me i smell good. I even have some friends who tell me they like to sit by me and inhale deeply. Even my dad, who HATES perfumes, doesnt hate this one. I will totally buy again, even though in my country it stings me about $200 a bottle.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair Hair: Red Eyes: Blue
Eww. Cannot believe that someone would pay $175 for this. It smells like hard liquor. Only good thing I can say about it is that if you do like the perfume, it stays on FOREVER,
Age: 30-35 Skin: Sensitive, Fair Hair: Blond Eyes: Green
This is definitely a sophisticated complex fragrance. I have been wearing this for years in the Parfum. My absolute favorite is Chanel No.5 but Coco has that whole sexy librarian thing going on. There is a underlying sensuality. This fragrance is a lady in the street and whore in the bedroom.

I have been sniffing around the Chanel counter for a year, trying to decide which Chanel is best for me. Coco was released the year I graduated from high school! I remember the ads and scent strips for it and that I liked it, but as others have mentioned it seemed too much for me then. I am now 42, and I decided on Coco today and bought the EDT after testing the EDT and the EDP. After being home for a few hours, however, I find that the wrist with EDP is much more pleasing to my nose than the EDT. The EDP dried down faster to a softer, rounder, more woodsy finish. The EDT remained more floral and sweet. It's not bad, but I suspect I am smelling ylang-ylang which isn't my favorite, and it is more blended and not as pronounced in the EDP. So back to the store I go to exchange it...the EDP is much pricier, but I suspect it may well last me many years.
They are both lovely scents, however, I think it is more a matter of personal preference as to which formula you prefer. I tend to like "drier", softer scents, so the more powdery finish of the EDP appeals to me. I think I am getting more sandlewood, as well.
I agree with all the other posters who said that this fragrance smells classy and expensive, and it certainly evokes images of expensive living rooms with glowing woodwork, crackling fires, exquisitely dressed men and women within, and a few prime thoroughbreds grazing outside. That said, I think if it is used with a light hand, it could be wearable almost anywhere. I find that if I spray a stronger fragrance well below my shoulders or even on my legs, it is softer and the scent will waft up without overwhelming. That is what I plan to do with Coco.
I also tried the lotion at the counter and it was very nice. Soft and spicy. I can see investing in a bottle for next summer when the parfum may be too much.
It is a masterpiece for sure! I'm glad I found Coco.
