It has been a long time waiting, but the moment has finally arrived. I have finally added Chanel Coco Mademoiselle to my collection. My husband spoiled me for my birthday this year, and that was among one of the gifts he gave me. I’ve been shopping around for a new perfume for a while now, and after watching a few YouTube perfume review videos, I knew I wanted Coco Mademoiselle.
I actually hadn’t heard of this perfume before until I was watching Toni Sevdalis’ YouTube channel and she was saying how she really liked the scent. I went to my local Macy’s and headed straight to the Chanel counter to ask to test it. I’ve been keeping that tester strip in my agenda since December 2020. Well, the wait is over and I can say that I am really in love with this scent.
My husband ordered it straight from the Chanel website, so when I opened it, the packaging had that luxurious feel that designer houses do oh-so-well. As I unwrapped the black and white box, breaking the seal of the black matte sticker, I was elated to hold the eau de Parfum package.
The package comes sealed in a plastic wrapping, and then the actual box has a minimalist design of white background, gold trim around the top and bottom, and black sans serif font.
The perfume bottle itself is very aesthetically pleasing with a rose colored liquid, pink and gold label, all contained in glass. The slim, frosted glass top adds even more to the luxurious design.
The first time I wore this perfume, I was very pleased with how it smelled. If I could use three words to describe the scent, I would say: floral, powdery and elegant. I know the term powdery sounds a bit odd, but it’s a good thing, it smells very fresh and clean.
I feel that this fragrance smells like something a woman would wear when she’s doing really well in her career, or something you would wear to a formal event, like a wedding or a gala.
This perfume is definitely more refined than any other perfume I’ve worn before. It is very pleasant. This fragrance is also very potent-in a good way. When you spray this perfume, the scent will last you all day.
According to the Coco Mademoiselle listing on Sephora, this perfume is part of the floral fragrance family. The key notes are orange, patchouli and Turkish rose. The warm floral scent also has accents of Grasse jasmine, May rose and vetiver.
Would I recommend this perfume?
Yes, I would. This could easily be a special event perfume or an every day perfume. Once you spray this fragrance, it gives you an immediate energy boost and makes you feel a little bit more put together. I highly recommend this perfume, especially if you love floral scents and are looking for a more elegant fragrance.
