Chanel Coco Mademoiselle is very far from what would be my ideal fragrance. This bottle is the result of my identity crisis. Usually, when it comes to fragrance, I have pretty developed sense of what I like and what not. However, at some point in time, I couldn’t find a good perfume; it didn’t matter whether I have tried a mainstream or niche fragrance – I could not identify with one.
I picked Coco Mademoiselle out of boredom. It seemed nice at the first sniff – slightly fruity, slightly floral and slightly oriental. I cannot describe it better, because to my nose nothing stands out. It’s a “fit-in-the-crowd” fragrance and it definitely isn’t for someone who likes to be noticed.
I wanted to get EdT (because I surely won’t pay for the EdP version of a “so-so” fragrance), but on my skin EdT had the same staying power as the hair mist (which is almost half cheaper).
I used it both as a regular fragrance and as a hair mist. I was expecting much weaker staying power, but I can feel the scent on the skin even after eight hours (although it is very weak). On the hair, the scent stays until you wash it and I’ve only used a light spray.
While I do not like the fragrance itself very much (my nose has never agreed with Chanel perfume), those who like Coco Mademoiselle in EdT version might want to test the hair mist, as on my skin is practically the same as EdT version (minus the price).
