Love on the... uh... hundredth glimpse?
COCO and I weren't friends, we weren't even acquaintances. no! I couldn't stand COCO, I avoided COCO! Disregarded and ignored COCO!
COCO was Perfuma Non Grata !!!
I've been using and wearing perfume since I was 14. The first perfume I ever owned was Hypnotism by Lancome. A sweet scent of the 2000's and joined by some "modern," mainstream Gucci by Gucci's, Aliens and Hypnotic Poisons.
In my teenage years up until my early 20s, I was the classic "I wear what's in," chick.
Often and with pleasure I sniffed my way through the
Douglas through the shelves at Chanel too... but there wasn't much I liked... ...too old-fashioned about Omahaaft... chance and coco mademoiselle were still going, but the rest... OMAAAA.
One day, when I was 17 or 18, I met COCO... A saleswoman sprayed it on a test strip and I smelled it and shouted:, Pfuiiiii TEUFEL ! Who would buy this?!?!,,,
This "grandma smell,,, burned itself so negatively in the Mark me that I already only if I saw the bottle cursed and scolded.
BIS !!!! BEFORE !!! SHORT !!!!!
Now I'm 27 and moving towards 30... but for whatever reason, my taste in perfume has changed dramatically since then.
Years of abuse of mainstream sugar and vanilla bombs have caused a change in me... i became a woman!
Yes, I have matured!
Today I appreciate the complexity and moral values of a classic... Fragrances like Jean Patou's Joy and Teint de Neige are now in my collection. Encre Noir pour Elle, Faith by Amouge, Coromandel and Jersey... all the "granny scents" I blasphemed about are now my daily companions.
The smell of a lady says a lot about her... at that time it was important to me that others like my smell! But today I wear what I like ! For every day and every mood I have the right scent !
But now back to COCO... and why I'm dedicating a commentary to him, of all people.
Last year, I saw my favorite YouTube vloggerin in a ,,room tour,, video a bottle of COCO stand . she told me the scent reminds her of her childhood and she loves it. Hmmmm well, good for her I thought... it excited me but the memory of COCO was burned into me like the scarlet letter.
Well then again another youtuberin Jamie Chua a stone-rich asian lady with hermes birkins and diamonds... told in her video how much she loves COCO and that for her it is the fragrance of her youth.
Well, that can't be true, I thought this woman has access to the most exclusive fragrances in the world and it says COCO?
Due to my job I travelled a lot and was constantly on the road at airports, and like every good junky I loved to be in the Duty Free.
Only when the whole plane was puffing and coughing was I satisfied.
So it happened then in Zurich that I sprayed COCO edt on the hand on the advice of the YouTuberinnen. yes mhhh ok yes it smells somehow really good mhhh ok... but I didn't dare to spray it completely on myself just on the hand.
I caught myself the whole flight and the taxi drives to the hotel smelling my hand and I liked the smell...
The game of spraying and smelling went on for weeks... i liked it from time to time better and better at some point I sprayed it on myself, and I loved it I changed there between edt and edp.
I liked the edt better in the end.
I don't know why but the lightness of the edt brought out the chords and nuances much better than the rather heavy edp. But that is a matter of taste
Well, somehow my disgust and later curiosity developed into an obsession no an addiction and I started to think only about COCO... i got so lost in coco that i had to have it for EVERY PRICE !
Without mercy 100ml edt bought and since then I spray 2 bottles empty every month.
The COCO edt by Chanel is for me the ultimate fragrance for every occasion. COCO is elegant and clean, feminine and a touch of eroticism.
In the beginning coco is very flowery i smell the classic roses and the touch of iris a bit sweet and soapy but pleasant. Clean ! A bit like fresh laundry.
It takes some time until the erotic incense comes out and COCO shows his erotic side mixed with patchouli the first soapy COCO turns into an oriental aphrodisiac and gives me everything I wish for a fragrance.
COCO is my new signature fragrance and I feel confident, elegant, clean, feminine and sexy when I wear it.
A classic that brings out the elegance of a woman and nothing is sexier than elegance.
I personally feel that the edt is more appropriate for my age. The lightness seems more harmonious and timeless to me. The edp I will eventually put on but I prefer the sillage of the edt sometimes less is more and I find the bottle very pretty and very Chanel.
