Chanel Coco Noir 113660 Eau de Parfum Spray 100 ml
About this deal
Vedo che tante persone lo associano a profumi degli anni 80, infatti è molto simile a Roma di Laura Biagiotti.
This unconventional fusion of citrus and vanilla-like sweet tones is just a prelude to a generous floral heart. For example, when you wear a pearl necklace, a red dress, and black shoes, go to the theater, style your hair in a casually French way, or apply red lipstick. Maybe it could be my personal chemistry, maybe it is the fact that I don't enjoy Chanel fragrances overall, but either way, all I can smell on my skin is straight grapefruit (so sharp, it almost smells like lemon, or a lemon-scented cleaning product) and an intense, musty musk. Coco Noir reminds me of a cross between Coco OG and Coco Mademoiselle, with a little bit of an airier, nuttier aspect that makes me think of coconut milk although Coco Noir doesn't smell at all tropical. Both Coco Noir and Coco Mademoiselle are woody amber fragrances, whereas the original Coco is a soft amber.It definitely has some Coco Mademoiselle in the opening, but it's so much spicier and richer that nobody would confuse the two. For Coco Noir, I thought of Coco and of Coco Mademoiselle too, because it’s also part of the history. I like how the grapefruit note is scaled back from other Chanels like Gabriel and Coco Mlle, while still having enough presence to give a fresh and strident quality to the woods and spices. I sprayed Coco Noir on my arm early this afternoon just to revisit it as I organize my fragrances for fall. Ending up in Le Chat Noir jazz club just off the Boulevard Saint Germain Coco leans lazily into the crook of the Englishman’s arm.
Citruses are felt all the time, they do not disappear instantly, as is usually the case with the top notes. I get a slight powderiness, too, along with a creaminess, and this quality is probably what keeps the strong patchouli note from seeming too noxious to me. All eyes are on her cool elegance as she flirts with the Englishman and sips Champagne cool and bubbly. For me personally CN is perfect in the second half of summer ( when the sun is of the colour of amber and bronze))) and early fall when it still comparatively warm. The drydown is dominated by the amber-vanilla accord, sweet yet light - not quite thin, but not rich either.
I don't always mind that as I'm usually in the mood for something inconspicuous these days, but I can see the lack of projection being disappointing for some. The poster is printed with top quality inks on a FSC certified 200g/m2 premium design paper with matte finish and smooth surface. There's something about Coco Noir that reminds me of the perfumes with beastly power mode from the 1980's, eventhough this fragrance was released back in 2012.
The smell is reminiscent of my grandma when she was going to the opera or concert hall wearing an expensive coat and applying Dior lipstick and powder on her face. It is one of those scents that throughout the day, the scent does seem to dissipate on me ever so slightly, but then I may brush my hair over my shoulder or move a little quicker and I will get a hint of it again and that is what I adore in a fragrance. If you’re into Middle Eastern fragrances then the deeper notes of the Coco mademoiselle intense is going to be a good mixer to create an original signature scent with a arab scent layered underneath it to give it depth. If I want a rose and patchouli based scent (which is what my mind categories Coco Noir as) I prefer Juliette Has a Gun Mad Madame.I tested it when I first got it for my birthday party this past Saturday, but it didn't seem to last long. I sprayed a couple of spritzes on my coat near the hood, and every time I pass by the hanger, I sweetly freeze with delight. Another journey in the wake of a Gabrielle who fully embraced the dazzle of black and Venice, incorporating them not only into her creations but into her life. On a personal level, I wanted this to work for me, but sadly, I have come to terms that I am just not a Chanel Woman, and instead will just have to admire this fragrance on others.
After the first twenty minutes it was still harsh to the point of acrid, and I began to taste it on my tongue like shampoo.
Now if you are somewhat drawn to Coco Mademoiselle but find her to shrill, sharp and rebellious then maybe this is worth a try. Naturally, like all fragrances of the legendary French brand, Chanel Coco Noir is expensive and noble. Surprisingly, despite the "black=sexy" association I usually have, this one is more suitable for a work fragrance. The contemporary expression of a magnetic sensuality told in a modern oriental fragrance with luminous notes.
