Today I dedicate my report to Coco Mademoiselle on Chanel. I came into contact with the fragrance back in 2005, when I bought the Haarmist of this fragrance in a small perfumery in my town.
It was like Coco Mademoiselle then, something completely new for me. It smelled noble, full of elegance and radiance. Unfortunately I could not or did not want to spend so much money on a fragrance, and so I decided to use the hairist of this fragrance.
The seller said it was the same fragrance as the eau de parfum and yet there were differences in how I should notice it much later when I tried the fragrance at home.
It smelled way too subtle. One notices what it is supposed to represent, but it flies and disappears much too quickly and my joy is diminished. The Haarmist was used up well and Coco Mademoiselle was forgotten for the first time.
It took me a few years to get back together with Coco Mademoiselle. At that time I lost my heart to her older sister Coco.
Through a winter action I rediscovered Coco Mademoiselle in a fragrance shelf.
One spray and the memory can reopen. Yes, it rekindled. I buy this fragrance in 100ml for just 24 € cheaper, because I had some vouchers of it.
Arriving at home I took another spray and was fascinated.
Tart orange and some citrus notes make the start for a floral note, space. After a while, you smell a teeny note. Almost like chamomile tea.
The base note is fascinating: on the one hand somewhat smoky, on the other hand somewhat rubbery with opoponax and vanilla. By the astringency, the fragrance also reminds of Rush of Gucci.
Coco Mademoiselle is like a kaleidoscope full of light, different tones and colours. Especially the masculine twist is unique and the musk seduces in the base note. The "masculine note" probably comes through the earthy vetiver and is a successful interpretation of an elegant fragrance and is something different when you consider how many sweet gourmand fragrances there are, Coco Mademoiselle stands out from the crowd.
Coco Mademoiselle never gets too sweet, but through the vetiver and the opoponax it gets an interesting contrast. On the other hand, it also smells powdery, pure and clear. This grade was best applied to the Eau de Toilette.
Eau de Parfum also has a balsamic, smoky, rubbery note. Overall, the Eau de Parfum is deeper and more sensual than the Eau
de Toilette, which is very effective in spring and summer because of its freshness and transparency.
Coco Mademoiselle doesn't look much like Miss Dior Cheriè. They only share the fruity note but are quite different.
While Coco Mademoiselle becomes powdery, bitter and rubbery smoky in the course of the fragrance, Miss Dior Cheriè is sweet and floral even after hours.
While Miss Dior Chérie celebrates the lightheartedness of a young woman, Coco Mademoiselle is the serious woman who stands with both legs in life. Coco Mademoiselle is the white pure light, while Miss Dior Chérie represents the exuberance and joy.
I have both scents, and enjoy both each time even if they are different.
Coco Mademoiselle lasts up to 12 hours and also the sillage is intense. My version is the vintage version.
