Coco Mademoiselle

Coco Mademoiselle has long been one of my favourite scents. And even though I do like to change my perfume up a bit depending on the season, This is definitely my 'signature scent'. It's so classic and sophisticated that it works for every occasion, it doesn't matter if you're spritzing it on for a cold December morning at work, or for a warm summer's evening event, it just works!

You may have seen in my recent 'What I Got For My Birthday video' that I was rather spoilt! My family clearly know me very well as I received a beautiful trio of products from the range which I absolutely love.

The first was a bottle of the eau de parfum, in the instantly recognisable and ever so classy glass bottle with a frosted top. The middle notes in Coco Mademoiselle are jasmine absolute and may rose absolute which are two of my favourite scents, with fruity top notes of grapefruit and orange and deeper base notes of patchouli, musk and vanilla. It is quite an intense fragrance, but I love the fact it lasts all day. If you've ever tried Chanel No5 and found it far too over powering, then this one by comparison is a lot softer and more feminine.

Next is the delicious foaming shower gel. It comes in a 200ml bottle which is made of plastic, but a glass bottle might be a bit unsafe in the shower so I'm assuming that why. I think it makes a beautiful gift for someone, because at a price point of £34, it's not something most of us would treat ourselves to on a regular basis. It lavers up really nicely and creates lots of soft, scented foam. The best thing about using the same range is that you can layer up the scent and make it last all day, especially when the quality is as good as this.

Finally I wanted to mention the fresh body cream. It comes in a gorgeous 150ml frosted glass pot with a white lid, and I can't lie, I really enjoy just looking at it on my dressing table! This was such a pleasant surprise to me as I had always imagined this to be quite thick, and not one to apply just before going out, but it's so light and easily and quickly absorbs into your skin. Again, you can layer up the body cream with the perfume to get the most out of the products.

I love the newest editions to my Chanel beauty collection. They might not be your everyday products, but I think they make such a lovely presents. Maybe one to add to the birthday or Christmas list?

  4. I don't think I've ever smelt this perfume at all haha, I'm not a fan of Chanel fragrances in general (I can't stand the scent of Chanel N°5, yerk!), but this one seems more targeted at young women - and the packagings are so pretty!

    1. Yes exactly! it's a lot sweeter and not so strong. Chanel No 5 is an amazing fragrance but I can't pull it off! Haha x

  9. I love this!
    It's my "signature scent" too and no matter how many other perfumes I buy, I always end up going back to this one.
    I also love that they do a refillable miniature bottle which is perfect for on the go! You must check it out if you haven't already.

  12. This is definitely one of my favourite fragances! Now, to switch a little bit since it's winter in Chile, I'm using Black Opium by YSL and Miss Dior Cherie. But in the end, I use Coco Mademoiselle as well (Lol)
