The Birthday Scent: Chanel Coco Mademoiselle

12 November 2014

L'amour Josie Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Perfume Review
First things first, happy birthday to me! Today I've reached the grand old age of 24, so I decided to treat myself to a bottle of perfume to mark the occasion. Almost two years ago I mentioned this fragrance as one of my top three in this post, so what better choice than a bottle of Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Eau De Parfum.

There is something about Chanel products that screams luxury, and this bottle is no exception. The packaging is exquisite: from the frosted glass lid to the gold accents, Coco Mademoiselle has an iconic, instantly recognisable shape and design. Coco Mademoiselle has been a permanent fixture in the Chanel fragrance lineup since the early noughties, when it was introduced to appeal to a younger audience than some of the brands other signature scents.

The majority of notes in this fragrance are a combination of fruity and floral (orange, mandarin, iris etc along with my all time favourite, bergamot), however there is enough of an undertone of musk and vanilla that Coco Mademoiselle doesn't smell too 'young'. This perfume is a truly intricate blend of notes which work together to create the perfect scent, which lasts all day long. Many a time I've woken up still able to smell this perfume on my skin.

Although Coco Mademoiselle is pricey, it's my all time favourite perfume and perfect for Autumn/Winter. The lasting power combined with the strength of the fragrance means that a little goes a long way, and I can see myself repurchasing Coco Mademoiselle for years to come.


  1. This is one of my 'signature' scents I love it, I'm even wearing it today. I've just branched out to Chanel Noir too which is lovely.

    Have you seen the purse sprays they do? They're so handy.

  2. Ahh, such a classic. When I worked in cosmetics it was always what I recommended when men came in looking for gifts for their wives. You really can't go wrong with it, can you?
