My love forever
My first and only perfume love forever. I first discovered Coco Madeimoselle in my 20s. I fell in love with it at first try. If that ever happens to you, don’t care what anyone thinks and go with it, you won’t regret it. So it is the case today. It was my signature scent, and my coworkers knew me by it. My partner also loves it and knows it really suits me and smells divine on me. And it’s no surprise really, you usually resonate with things you are of the same frequency of. I love oranges, roses and the strange forest like comfort of moss, the dry airiness of vetiver and the earthy smokiness of patchouli. It could have been Channel or it could have been a niche brand no one knows about, it won’t matter to me. I would still love it. I used to always prefer the edt version, but I think since those days, the edp smells a lot like the edt used to. And no, it doesn’t have a really strong patchouli in it anymore. The only complaint I have with it now is its lasting power these days. It used to be rather powerful, but now it becomes a skin scent on me really quickly. It makes me think they have reformulated it to make it less potent than it used to be. I think they added an intense version, which did not impress me as much as the original. Then, they recently added Privee version in a frosty bottle, but that is like the new Eau de Toilette or even mist really. The selling ladies at the big department store tried to push me to buy the Privee version, but luckily I noticed it won’t last. On the bottle it said la nuit, and I was like what? Is it a nighttime version, then why is it so weak? And it is actually a bedtime version, incredibly weak and no doubt designed to soak that money right out of your wallet :)).
