Coco Mademoiselle – Classic Scent
Coco Mademoiselle was introduced in Spring 2001 for Chanel’s younger clientele. It was created by Jacques Polge, the nose of Chanel from 1978 to 2015. Honestly, this is my all-time favourite perfumes. I was introduced on my wedding day by my maid of honour who sprayed me with it and I’ve been in love with it ever since (4 years and counting!). Before my signature sense was Ralph Lauren Romance (this was my planned wedding perfume)
It has top notes of bergamot and organge, a heart of jasmine and morning rose petals. A base of patchouli, vetiver, vanilla and white musk. I can always tell when someone is wearing Coco Mademoiselle, my nose is well trained! I love the whiff of it when someone walks past!
Speaking of beautiful scents, I have a drawer filled with perfumes, anything from Jimmy Choo signature to Chanel Chance to One Million Paco Rabanne to Coach Signature (oh my gosh LOVE this) to Zara perfumes which p.s are amazing value! They smell delightful!
My other favourite, but wish I had all the money in the world, is Jo Malone – eeek I’m just about to run out of the Mandarin and Lime Bazil – and the Pomegranate Noir. LOVE LOVE LOVE! Did you see that Jo Malone have a new collection out for Spring, Limited Edition? I know because my friend dragged me for a sniff the other day in Memorial Mall and naturally I want them all!
