Chanel Coco Eau de Parfum - Review

Chanel Perfumes - Coco Eau de Parfum Spray - Review
Chanel Coco Eau de Parfum ($92 - $122) at Nordstrom

Chanel perfumes have always been among my favorite, and the very first "grown-up" perfume I bought was a bottle of Chanel No. 5 (EDT).  I remember standing at the counter, trying out all the different perfumes, and while it was not what I ultimately ended up buying (all the hype about No. 5 made me buy that instead), Chanel Coco Eau de Parfum was the first Chanel perfume I tried and loved.  Now that I am all too familiar with the word "reformulation" thanks to the perfume blogs that I read, I definitely regret not having picked up a bottle ages back.

Water under the bridge, as they say, and I might as well get on with the review of Chanel Coco Eau de Parfum as is sold today.   The fragrance notes (as listed on Fragrantica) include:  top notes of coriander, mandarin orange, peach, jasmine and bulgarian rose; middle notes of mimosa, cloves, orange blossom, clover and rose; and base notes of labdanum, amber, sandalwood, tonka bean, opoponax, civet and vanilla.

On me, the perfume starts off as a citrusy floral fragrance that is tempered with the warm amber notes.  I  get a hint of sweetness as it dries down, but overall this perfume definitely goes on more warm and creamy than sweet.  Like most Chanel perfumes I have tried so far, I find Chanel Coco Eau de Parfum a mature perfume with a sophisticated, classy allure to it.  It's a strong perfume and lasts the whole day on me.  The warm creaminess of this perfume makes this a perfect fall/winter-evening fragrance for me.
