It's not that daring
Cozé supposedly stands for french 'c'est osé', "that's daring". (Then one speaks ßoseh? Sounds almost like sauce.) It does not seem so daring to me at all. Pierre Guillaume wanted to reproduce his father's cigar box olfactorily. And he probably succeeded quite well, because I can very well imagine a wooden box with cigars.

Even if the cocoa is passed up in the pyramid in the heart note, I smell it immediately and quite strongly. But no gourmand. Not cute. No dark chocolate either, just cocoa powder. This fragrance blends with woody notes. Very dry wood. That box must be old by now. A very intense herbaceous note is added, this is probably hemp. Dry patchouli weaves itself between the other fragrances and holds the whole thing together.

(Duden just explained to me that this is what patchouli is written for these days. This looks terribly wrong, I just can't do it now to write it so ugly.)

I like the composition of Cozé very much. I even think it's the most beautiful patchouli fragrance I've ever smelled. But the perfume is a bit bulky because of the herbaceousness. Meaning that the environment used to mainstream might complain. However, my family testers M and Q were enthusiastic, but they are already used to me a lot. The projection of Cozé is rather small. If the mainstream environment doesn't get that close, it should work. Whether you can wear it at work therefore depends on the working conditions. Otherwise it will probably go to all occasions. Sport is not an opportunity. I find Cozé suitable for men and women. In the inhuman summer at over 30°C it may or may not work. That would probably be really risky. After all, Patchouli drives away the insects. I don't see a problem with other seasons.

A little comfortable at last, the good guy..
A fart dry patchouli-muscat cloud goes straight into the full. Quickly a pinch of sweetness is added, cocoa fits as an announcement, undoubtedly "patchouli cocoa". But above all, spice is clouding over, even the sour-faced prelude of carnation scratchers like Timothy Hans' 'On The Road' or Angela Flanders' 'Vetivert' beckons. A soft metallic note is - I think - fed by pepper and a little eugenol. Without being particularly loud, all of this has quite a good taste and the opulence invites you to keep checking it out. After a while the spice mixture makes you think of those from ' Eau du Gouverneur' by Comptoir Sud Pacifique, but today without any citrus stuff
As I go on, I puzzle over something blunt. I have no idea what hemp smells like, but that may be it. A damp rope, perhaps. Soon displaced by a sugar-peachy whiff, so to speak. As patchouli penetrates more strongly again after an hour, the spice is framed by both, as it were, and optionally tamed. I therefore find the fragrance by no means unduly spiced. It calms down too quickly for that and within two hours it reaches a primarily woody, leathery mood that reminds me of Divergent's 'metamorphic' (ex 'Whip') (see my blog from September 24th). The perfumer was surprised that for me no more leather could "get through".

I feel similarly here. As if there is a leather application behind wood, which doesn't really come through, but is otherwise quite decent. With this wood/leather chord, it essentially remains in Cozé. At some point, only patchouli becomes clearer again and at the very end a hint of musk seems to be involved. I basically like to suffer that, I liked that one, too, in the end. I only wish that the course would have been slower. It is a bit disappointing that the gentleman is so quickly 'cozy' with his base.

Roasted Autumn
Cozé = bake? Is the real translation of the name, what I have found at our best friend, Google? If yes, then it is a bullseye!

This fragrance crawls out from the darkness, from depth of earth. It carries the heavy aroma of basements, fermented fig digged in soil, and many oilseeds roasted on charcoal: chestnut, peanut, pine nuts. A light menthol-camphor scent illuminates the obscure mixture, so it reminds me to PIPER NIGRUM married with SANDALO, but the seeds are much more noble here than in SANDALO, less stifling.

As the note list is written, it evolves a notion of a gourmand fragrance, but COZÉ is closer to the forest and earth, rather shows a beautiful autumn than a confectionery. It is not too sweet and placed to the unisex-masculine part of the Fragrance Realm.

Mr Pierre Guillaume, thank you so much for COZÉ!

A Delicious Composition...
Coze gets right down to business on skin with a huge burst of patchouli emerging all the way from the base; soon joining a delicious semi-sweet dark chocolate and pimento almost clove-like spice primary heart notes that arrives quite early in the scent's development. Underneath the patchouli, dark chocolate and pimento trio lies a subtle ebony wood and mild coffee undertone combining with just the smallest amount of sandalwood and tobacco smoke from the base to round out the primary detectable notes. Longevity is average and projection above average.

Coze is really a great smelling fragrance. The patchouli, chocolate and all-spice combination is really exceptionally executed here by Guillaume. Also notable is the ebony and coffee that plays support but is just present enough in the background to add a differentiating feature to the primary notes at the fore. The scent overall is relatively sweet, but the sweetness never becomes cloying or distracting. As far as development goes, the scent is fairly linear revealing its true nature early and holding there. The bottom line is Coze is a very well-done composition that is highly recommended earning an excellent rating of 4 out of 5 stars.

dry/moist green
Coze offers both that fresh, moist feel of a close-fitted evergreen forest canopy and the dry, herbal tone of a dry forest floor. With its hemp foundation, though, the other side of this combination of notes is an over-baked hash brownie. A delight either way.
