Why Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel should be called La Vie est Belle (Life Is Beautiful)FFOL Editor 1
Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel is a Oriental Floral fragrance for women. The nose behind this fragrance is Jacques Polge. Top notes are Calabrian Bergamot, Sicilian Oranges and Grapefruit; middle notes are Rose, Litchi and Jasmine; base notes are Indonesian Patchouli, Bourbon Vanilla, White Musk and Haitian Vetiver.
Coco Mademoiselle was introduced as eau de parfum in 2001, as well as eau de toilette in 2002. Both compositions were created by Jacques Polge – perfumer for Chanel since 1978. Feminine edition Coco Mademoiselle was presented as pure perfume as the very essence of this edition.
A richer composition full of contrasts and nuances can be found in 7.5 ml perfume flacons and each of its drops celebrates famous spirit of Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle. A luxurious purse edition arrives in a flacon shaped just like EDP edition, decorated with a seal on its neck.
The composition is focused on two characteristic ingredients of Chanel editions – Jasmine absolute and May Rose absolute. Delicate flowers are enhanced and enriched with a touch of Florentine iris.
This fragrance is dedicated to courageous, brave and modern women who prefer luxury and elegance.
Coco Mademoiselle is a Chanel version of a flirtatious perfume.
With a few sprays, and you, like a queen bee, are signaling pheromones to all bumblebees within a kilometer radius, saying it’s time for some fun. This effect can be attributed to the so-called fruitchuli accord, a mixture of fruit and patchouli, universally appealing and exciting since the famous Angel by Thierry Mugler. In the case of Coco Mademoiselle, it is a combination of fragrant notes of lychee and patchouli that invites the flirting. I have heard many anecdotes about this perfume, even one in which a guy married a girl who smelled like Coco Mademoiselle while she passed by him in the agency quarters.
Coco Mademoiselle has blown away all other fragrances on the market. Its popularity and number of units sold were so terrific that it surpassed the statistics of the bestselling perfume of all time – the famous Chanel no. 5. To make things weirder, no one, not even the Chanel people, expected this flanker (the 1984 version of the original perfume, in this case, Coco) to achieve such success. Consequently, his success was, as with almost all mega-popular perfumes, the reason for its decline, and the rose to power of Lancom’s La Vie est Belle also didn’t help.
The opening is like sweet-sour candy, a uniform dose of crisp freshness and sweetness, which already indicates that this is not your typical Chanel, with the ubiquitous aldehydes in the top notes.
The energetic and almost masculine opening blends very quickly with the middle and lower notes, which are dominated by a creamy mix of patchouli and vanilla. Very easy to wear, easy to understand, an optimistic perfume that takes neither the world nor itself too seriously. Coco Mademoiselle is not a statement perfume, it is meant for carefree enjoyment of everyday life, and without Lancome’s creations, one could call it easily La Vie est Belle without any doubt – life is beautiful.
Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Eau De Parfum expresses the true essence of femininity. The fragrance maintains the mystery of women’s individuality.
The long-lasting perfume keeps one fresh and in high spirits in Summer & Spring, even during the cold Winter.
