Perfume Review

Name: Coco Mademoiselle
Perfume type/Volume: Eau de Toilette (EDT): 1.7 fl. oz. (50 ml), 3.4 fl. oz. (100 ml)
Designer: Chanel
Perfumers: Jacques Polge, the legendary Chanel in-house perfumer
Launched: 2002
Perfume ad/spokesmodel: Coco Mademoiselle, directed by Joe Wright / Keira Knightley as Gabrielle Coco Chanel (background music: Joss Stone's cover of 1965 "L-O-V-E" classic by Nat King Cole)

Olfactory group: Chypre-Fruity

Notes (osmoz.com):
Top: Orange, Bergamot, Grapefruit
Middle: Litchi, Rose, Italian Jasmine
Base: Indonesian Patchouli, Haitian Vetiver, Bourbon Vanilla, White Musk

Intro

Coco Mademoiselle perfume (EDT) by haute couture superbrand Chanel was launched in 2002, a year after the release of its Eau de Parfum (EDP) version, a 'cash cow' of the Chanel women's fragrances. The Coco Mademoiselle EDP also bagged the prominent FiFi Award in 2002, the so called Oscar of perfume industry (Women's Fragrance Star of The Year Specialty/Department Stores). Coco Mlle perfume line (along with the EDT and Parfum version) is continuously ranked at the highest places of various bestselling women's perfume lists; for example NPD Group reported Coco Mademoiselle was No. 1 best selling total prestige fragrance brand from January to October 2010 in US.

Chanel owes this remarkable success of Coco Mademoiselle to its creator, the legendary Chanel in-house perfumer, Jacques Polge, who also created the Eau de Toilette (EDT) version of Coco Mademoiselle, reviewed in this article.

Keira Knightley: The Newest
Impersonation of Coco Mademoiselle Perfume


The delicate rosy Coco Mlle (EDT) juice is stored in an upright rectangular glass bottle, at the first impression maybe dull, but on the other hand so Chanel minimalistic and timelessly elegant. The bottle's cap is glossy white.

Notes

Chanel packed Coco Mademoiselle perfume (EDT) top notes with lively citrusy scents of orange, bergamot, and grapefruit. This sort of sharp, but refreshing ensemble of citrusy notes plays with your olfactory sense and transforms the atmosphere into a bright experience. First heart facet is fruity - litchi, which paves the way to a floral part of heart composed of jasmine and rose. The blend of the top and heart notes creates a delicate feminine aroma which I find the best part of this perfume; clean and natural and it sticks to my skin perfectly. As the heart notes subside, the rich base exudes its sweet and gentle character. Indonesian patchouli, Haitian vetiver, Bourbon vanilla, and white musk blend well and strike a balance between soft, warm sensuality and elegance.

EDT version (chypre-fruity) of Coco Mademoiselle perfume is a bit sharper at the opening notes, but all in all it turns out lighter, less sweet and a bit more fruity than the EDP version (chypre-floral) of Coco Mlle.

Lady & Feelings

Fashioned after the confident, exuberant yet mysterious woman, Coco Mademoiselle perfume (EDT) brings you back into your youthful gaiety. This chypre fruity juice exudes a lively aura and gives the wearer a brighter perspective of life. Aside from the sunny character evoked by refreshing citrus notes, it also provides confidence for the wearer. I personally find this perfume classy, mature and sophisticated, but at the same time youthful and bold which makes it a great perfume choice for younger women as well. It also emanates a unique, a bit oriental type of sensuality.

The EDT version of Coco Mademoiselle still incarnates the spirit of young elegant Gabrielle Coco Chanel, but compared to the EDP version, I'd say more her 'daytime' (working) version: bolder, very independent, creative & proactive, sophisticated, feminine, and (a bit) less seductive. Wear the EDT Coco Mlle, immerge into these feelings and expect a lot of compliments!




Occasions & Seasons

Coco Mademoiselle perfume by Chanel (EDT) is marketed at younger women in their late 20's and 30's, however my opinion is that it can be worn by women of any age group, as long as they want to smell youthful ;). It goes well with any kind of outfit whether it's a skirt, business dress or an elegant evening gown. While some may find the perfume the most suitable for special, formal occasions, I would also recommend it for every day, as well as office / business wear. The perfume can be worn all year round, except in the hottest summer days, when the only perfume a lady should wear is - sunshine.

As a Gift?

If you are looking for an almost perfect perfume gift for a youthful woman of any age, look no further: Coco Mademoiselle perfume by Chanel (EDT). Because of its versatile, rich and timelessly elegant character, it will go well with almost every woman. As already mentioned above, this perfume is, alongside with its EDP predecessor, one of the bestselling women's perfumes and very popular as a perfume gift for women.

The perfume is widely wearable and appealing; the packaging and the bottle are elegant as well. It can be gifted actually for any kind of occasion; anniversary, birthday, graduation and different holidays like Christmas, Mother's Day, Valentine's Day.

There are lots of online and local shops selling this perfume. Usually the prices range between $65-80 for 1.7 fl. oz. (50 ml) bottle and $90-115 for 3.4 fl. oz. (100 ml) bottle.

Coco Mademoiselle perfume by Chanel (EDT) is a sophisticated, everyday fashionable perfume for women of any age group, expressing the youthful energy and feminine vitality. Like Coco Mlle EDP version, EDT Coco Mademoiselle incarnates the spirit of young Gabrielle Coco Chanel, but more her 'daytime' (working) version; still very feminine, independent and bold, but (a bit) less seductive. Nevertheless, still expect many compliments when wearing the EDT Coco Mademoiselle perfume!

Quick Summary

Suitable for:
- Everyday. Office / business wear.
- Special occasions.
- All seasons (except very hot days).

Woman/Style:
- Youthful.
- Bold, independent: alive and kickin' à la inimitable Coco Chanel.
