The SA gave me samples of the EDP Intense too which was perfectly lovely but not topping the original. I understand Chanel's effort to offer something new, but IMO if you're buying Coco Mademoiselle, just get Coco Mademoiselle! This time around I bought the EDP but I also like the EDT :)
Beautifully balanced, it feels empowering and limitless - this one is still my signature and I think it will be for a while!
The most comforting rich smelling perfume ever I dont like the smell of mimosa but it blends in well in this perfume
When I saw it ranked high on citrus notes (my preference) with orange plus Bergamot, I knew there was a high likelihood of really enjoying it. I never, ever buy at first sniff since scents change and I want to know of its longevity too, but this was an exception, I bought it without hesitation and have no regrets.
It is obviously much more than citrus, the woody, green, earth, rose and patchouli blend are SO perfectly intertwined, making this a more unique fragrance than I would have guessed. It is one of those EDPs that can be worn day to night, along with any season very seamlessly (btw: the EDT has very different notes and doesn't even smell similar to me). The sillage is strong, so one to two spritzes is definitely enough, and the longevity is amazing! I prefer perfume to be on my clothing and it pretty much remains until the clothes are washed, this is why it is my bathrobe scent; it always smells fresh and welcoming.
Lastly it even layers well, if I want it to lean more citrus/lighter or more warm/thicker, it is so easily accomplished. It truly is a beautiful perfume!!
One of my favourites
It is the most beautiful fragrance I came across (not my signature and not my top favorite, because I have a specific taste), but the only word I can think of when smelling Coco Madmoiselle is BEAUTIFUL. Masterpiece! Great longevity and projection. I think that every woman has to have it in her collection.
This fragrance has stood the test of time indeed.
It is very fresh, clean, citrusy (not cleaning product smell), mature and classy. A boss chick will rock this fragrance in her designer white suit pants and CLB heels. It reeks of confidence and class.
Definitely long-lasting and very good sillage, so be careful not to overdo it, or you quickly go from boss chick to olfactory murderer :)
Hands down, one of my all-time fave. I recommend!
Im happy for those who love it but this just wont work out for me.
But the middle and the base... cold and dry. This is one of the few scents that smells just the same on all skin type and all temperature. Very adequate three phases. The top is soft and feminim the base and heart is masculine almost like a bad breath. It smells in total rich, rather mature and gender neutral. The marketing and the scent is not overlapping.
The drydown is simply chanel musk, patchouli and vanilla. Honestly after 5hrs I would not be able to tell if it is chance or mademoiselle.
Not a headturner not unique not sexy. In a professional setting in moderation not unpleasant but rather lame. Really it is a two puff scent. Be careful when you apply.
It has so much to say, that as much as I love it, I save it for special occasions like a date night.
This is a beautiful offering from Chanel!!
I don't tend to like most Chanel fragrances as they're usually so citrus heavy, and even though this has a citrus opening, it's devine.
This & Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet are my two "pretty girl" scents, but this, unlike MDBB actually has some lasting power.
This is an easy signature scent, although you probably won't smell unique, as this particular scent has a HUGE following, but its plain to see why.
Gorgeous, inoffensive, and completely girly, without smelling too "young" and definitely not cheap :)
It's the epodime of class and elegance to me. Perfect for any occasion, any season. It's one of those fragrances where if you can't decide which scent to wear that day, Coco will never do you wrong. Ah, I just love it so much!
This has that recognizable Chanel base to it. I don't know how to describe it. It smells expensive. I imagine perfumes as personas sometimes. For this one, I imagine a classy lady grabbing a french pastry while wearing designer clothes.
The only thing I dislike is the lime? that I get at the beginning. It reminds me subtly of a mixed drink. It calms down though.
Very appropriately named. A younger woman but someone stylish, feminine, who has ladylike behavior and cares about the etiquette= a mademoiselle.
This is a floral, uplifting fragrance with citrus notes which also retains just a bit of that soapy and balsamic feel of a Nr.5. If you are very young or you're used to cheerful fruity-florals you'll find this different, more clean and polished with just a pinch of an old-school vibe. It will also seem a high-quality fragrance with great longevity and sillage in comparison. In reality it probably has moderate longevity but still, it doesn't disappoint.
For me personally, I love all these aspects about it and I like the opening a lot but after wearing it a couple of times I realized that as it dries down it has a harshness to it, at least on my skin that makes me like this scent less the more I wear it. I prefer fragrances who become much softer as the day goes. I also prefer scents who do quite the opposite and with every wear, make me love them more and more, but this is not the case.
It's a very agreeable fragrance that can be used year-round to most occasions, though it smells like everyone and your mother due to its popularity, which is funny because I tried it because it's my mother in law's signature. Don't get it if you're looking for something striking and personal.
It voiced so fluently the Chanel tradition of soapy florals warmed by skin (think the jasmine de grasse and ylang of No.5, the frangipani and lush rose from Coco and giant iris from No.19) and abstract coldness--the inviting you-but not-welcoming you- Chanel greeting-- but made anew, a No.5 reset for a generation that wears bomber leather jacket with zigzag zippers over a striped breton shirt. A streamlined Angel without chocolate smudges in its clothes.
Now it is a little barebone in comparison but backtracked in the Intense version which rekindles the original's incantation of making you feel at least 3 times more attractive than you are, of swimming in sex-appeal while giving off the vibe of being oblivious to it, so self-assured that you are deaf to your own ego.
Don't lobotomize the smart ones Chanel.
"Sweet, fresh, clean, creamy, bright, sunny sweet water"
And I rated it 5/5 and intended to buy it (but lamented in parenthesizes that there was no wood or musk).
Then I scratched this out and revised to 3/5 and wrote "Sours and sharpens in dry down"
Now I want another sniff to see what I was talking about when I had a sample...
I believe it was tweaked a bit, as it is more floral,, less harsh also..it has lost its heaviness, but it is still a recognizable perfume... not in my collection for the moment, but I know a couple ladies who wear it beautifully...to me it is a bit of a cold scent also, classy.
I agree with the miss dior comparisons but the dior one to me smells a little sweeter and I can see that one being great on younger girls as well. I think this one is more classy (not in a mature way) and lasts a really good time on me. I would say it's a pretty safe buy.
First note: citrus and floral with a hint of patchouli. After an hour, the citrus melt down, the floral scent vaguely left my skin and patchouli became stronger. It last forever on my skin, 12 hours! I decided to purchase 100 ml. I'm gonna use it a lot.
Right off the bat from a tester strip, I get an appealing fruity sensation with a definite feminine sweetness. It’s not overly sweet or synthetic to my nose, as can be the case with competing fragrances from other houses. Just a very attractive opening which I find quite inviting. Shortly thereafter, the citrus and fruitiness give way to rose, which serves to enhance Coco Mademoiselle’s feminine grace. The patchouli is present to give the fragrance a strong foundation, but it does not overwhelm my nose.
It only takes a few minutes to understand Coco Mademoiselle’s popularity, which seems to have endured for a number of years now. Always a good sign. I am, of course, no expert, merely a curious observer. What I observe is that Coco Mademoiselle would have the power to amplify whatever quality the wearer would want to project. Depending on the context, I would imagine encountering this scent on a woman would lead me to think she is more professional, supportive, influential, resolute, and yes, sexier. In the realm of easily available, mainstream fragrances, Coco Mademoiselle has many imitators, yet easily surpasses them all. This fragrance, much like Chanel as a whole, is in a class by itself.
Perfection. Simply perfection. Woman’s DNA. This is how a beautiful, positive and young women should smell like, in my opinion.
But I do still believe that this fragrance is so much popular, wearable and well known that it literally day by day looses it’s value... nothing to surprise with ...
I just want to have it in my collection, to spoil my inside girl with pinky, juicy, bubbly, bright, sparkling smell and time to time to remind myself what a great taste in perfumes I have ??
Good luck and be inspired ??
Modern sophisticated vibe, maybe a stewardess. But doesn't seem to work for me.
About four hours in and the sharp notes have burnt off - it's starting to smell nice. Too long to wait though.
Litchi/lychee isn't listed as a note in the EDP, only in the EDT, but I feel like it might be the nauseating fruity note that's bugging me. So I don't know if the pyramid is wrong, if my sample was mislabeled EDP, or if it's just my imagination.
Checked Chanel website and there also there is only mention of lychee (and grapefruit) for the EDT.
I lean toward thinking it's just not for me.
Edit: #Beta Tuga: MOLDY! That's it! :) In the dry down it smells like a damp basement.
But when I finally bought it, I sprayed it on my forearm and didn't smell this rare entrance. I Wait 10 minutes and when I'm going to feel it ... nothing,total anosmia. I get scared, I ask my boyfriend to smell it, and there it is, he feels it. I don't know if it's because of the cold weather,I don't know if it's the medication I'm taking, but this makes me desperate! I want to feel this beautiful perfume!....so sad
I'm going to try it again in a couple of days and tell you.
EDIT; it has sealtle down marvellous , it is so classy, elegant and lovely.
As well I think you can’t no blindbuy it.
It is not very sweet, nor it is a soapy clean or sharp. It is sensual, feminine. I strongly dislike rose galore perfumes, but this one has just a hint of rose that blends so well with the other ingredients and as a combination it turns into something amazing and unique.
It really is a unique perfume and a masterpiece.
I dont ever want to live without this perfume. It is that good. I am very picky when it comes to perfumes. And I also easily get headaches but this one is just love! So feminine and long lasting!
* Also, Chanel is the first house to me, that makes perfumes that don't smell like cheap alcohol. they are just divine from the first spray till the end. Like if you compare cheap vs. expensive wine...
Mademoiselle is fresh, but with a hint of non gourmand sweetnes, just a touch of it to add character. Amazing perfume!
Has anyone else had this experience? I promise that it isn't me that smells like pee, as I did not smell like pee prior to spraying the perfume.
What note, or mixing of notes, could be accounting for this smell?
EDIT: Right now, on my skin, it smells nice - of juicy oranges and slight woods. It's lovely and inoffensive. However, when I smell the bottle, or when the perfume is still wet (prior to drydown) it smells like fishy urine. There is a note in here that my nose picks up as quite fleshy, in a bad way. I'm not sure if it is a deal breaker yet because once the perfume is dry, it smells nice on my skin. But the smell from the bottle is hurl-worthy.
EDIT: After 5 hours I had to scrub this off. It just doesn't smell good to my nose. It settles into a soapy rose that smells both generic, and trendy and dated at the same time, and the urine smell comes and goes. It is just not for everyone.
Used to be my signature scent when I used to believe in signature scents. Everythingyou want a perfume to be. A constant in my collection for almost 13 years. She knows my story like no one else.
But after an hour it turned really beautiful, creamy, floral with a hint of vanilla.
good for office, daytime, spring, fall and winter
A tad dissapointing and the silage isn't great, may be my skin chemistry but doesn't last more than 2-3 hours.
This is one of those tales where I smelt it on someone else and loved the earthiness of the patchouli mixed with tart, fresh citrus notes, except it wasn't CM that I'd actually smelt, oh no, it was the 2012 Miss Dior!
A friend of a partner was a die hard Miss Dior fan, she collected the various flankers of it and was gifted bottles of it every year by her grandmother.
Being enchanted by this gorgeous patchouli bomb, I sought out Miss Dior EdP in John Lewis, only to be disappointed by how it smelt on me, it bore no resemblance to the gorgeous, earthy, citrussy patchouli that I smelt on my exes friend, I gave up and just assumed that it was my skin chemistry worked against me.
Later on that year, I received a sample of CM Intense, I recognised the citrussy patchouli, the familiar classy/hippie vibe and after doing a lot of trawling on here I discovered that Miss Dior 2012 is totally different to the current Miss Dior EdP, and that CM and CM intense smells very similar, if not the same. CM Intense was, quite heady and strong on my skin, so I went for the regular CM EdP and I regret NOTHING!
Its long lasting, easy to wear, classy and a really versatile scent: can be dressed up or worn with jeans and a tee, it to my nose smells quite unisex too, probably because of the wonderful patchouli and citrus notes.
Yes its popular, but as with LVEB by Lancome, its popular for a reason and when worn in light quantities it is just stunning, I'm so glad I finally got this <3
However, I really like the scent. It's sophisticated, a tiny bit mature in a good way, and very complex. It's fresh and woody, lightly painted with floral notes and just a single grain of vanilla and tonka to ground it.
For the confident, well maintained woman who knows what she wants and doesn't need to wear something mainstream sexy to be sexy.
I don't think it's one I would reach for often, but when I do, I think I'll feel just that much more put together.
The bottle is absolutely exquisite and I look forward to seeing this sitting on my perfume counter.
It's pure class, a staple in any woman's collection

A perfect work scent ! I'm very happy to own this.!
I've smelt it on others and I've loved it, now I get to wear it too , As my parents kindly gifted me a 100ml bottle for xmas.
I'm personally such a fan of Chanel fragrances, I currently own 4 now.. opps
Chance Eau Tendre, Coco, Coco Mademoiselle and Chanel Paris Venise.
I just think Chanel fragrances just project luxury and class and the bottles look gorgeous on the dressing table.
If you want a timeless fragrance you can wear through-out the years then Coco Mademoiselle is a safe bet.
Classy, sexy, elegant and beautifully crafted.
Definitely a scent for a young woman I'd say mid 20's. It is very versatile, I can imagine you could wear this for every occasion.
longevity and sillage is excellent!
A perfect signature fragrance for the right woman! A modern classic.
It’s getting very popular now so I’ve been trying a few new fragrances, but I always seem to come back to this one. I wear it to work everyday because I work in a hospital and it’s easy on the nose. Lasts all day with only one or two sprays.
I couldn’t count the amount of bottles I’ve gone through over the years, but it will last you ages as you don’t need to spray too much and certainly do not drown yourself in it. An all season, all occasions perfume. It’s perfect.
The opening is bright and beautiful, and gives me energy and confidence. I don't read it as sharp, as some have- it's too well blended for that. It's a sweet mandarine orange scent to my nose, but grounded with the mid and base notes, which do shine through.
Then it gets even more gorgeous as the florals develop. I can't tell you how beautiful this, to me the most long-lasting stage, makes me feel. They are full-bodied, rich roses and jasmine in full bloom, still slightly sweet, but not overly so. This is a woman's scent, not a teen's.
The dry down is possibly my favourite part on cozy days at home. It has to be on your skin- I don't get the same soft, peaceful skin scent on clothes. It's a tonka, vanilla warmth with that calming patchouli base that just makes me close my eyes and smile.
I chose this perfume for my wedding day because it is classic, and very representative of our time. It's a perfume that my generation grew up aspiring to, and as a woman in her 30s, I now feel I am worthy of. I hope it's a scent that my husband and future children associate with me. I know it is one that will stand the test of time- even with my fickle nose that gets bored after less than a year! It's been longer than that with this, and so far so good.
I get it, it appears sophisticated and mouthwatering. But it's not mysterious at all.
And the bitter, sharp mouthwatering effect is a little too much for me. It's too strenuous. I prefer more calming scents.
The opening is intoxicating, and is the greatest citrus top note combination I've ever come across.
I have a love / hate relationship with citrus. Sometimes it's God-awful in-your-face. In this case, it's head-turning, joyous, and DAMN CLASSY.
I've been obsessed with this scent since I first got a sample. I recently had a little extra cash recently and bought my own bottle - My perfume collection had a "CM"-shaped hole in it.
The middle notes have a delightful, understated floral scent. That classiness and elegance lingers gently in the air.
The base notes are a perfect blend of subtle longevity. The tonka bean and vanilla allows to remain beautifully sweet. The patchouli and white musk ensures the intoxication continues.
The sillage is enchanting, and the longevity is awesome.
This is the perfect all-rounder:
I'm so happy.
Kitty rating: 10/10! <3
This perfume is beautiful - opens up bright (although quite strong) with citrus notes, that slowly tame down and allow the patchouli, rose and vanilla to round it out and shine through. Much prefer the smell of this one after a couple hours, when it warms up and becomes less strong and masculine, and more soft and complex. I find this one even more beautiful in the summer, the heat does something special to it (just can't over-apply). Also really love how versatile it is - can be worn day or night, for any occasion, IMO. Classy but understated.
Overall, I love this perfume, and I hope to always have it in my collection, but due to how popular it is, and the fact that it represents another time in my life for me, I barely ever reach for it. Quality fragrance overall though that definitely deserves its popularity.
The opening is really fresh, sparkly and citrusy. Not precisely orange, nor lemon, just refined citric acid. Polite and clean.
As it develops, Coco Mademoiselle takes completely different paths from the opening - it is more complex than expected and it indeed takes turns and blooms as time goes.
There's a bad moment when it's shifting from citruses to floral - some may smell cat pee, I would have said it's some strange animalic odour covered in citruses leaves. It just lasts a couple of minutes and it's nowhere near the definitive scent of Coco Mademoiselle, but it's definitely not pleasant.
On paper, this lasts a lot more, so I suggest to wait and bear it a little.
However, what is really going to stay is beautiful - patchouli and sweet mimosa - it's the scent of the earth when it rains (in a garden maybe), sweetened (a lot) by the flowers, when they begin to wilt and become more sweet than fresh.
Vanilla and Ylang Ylang definitely play a role in sweetness, without being overpowering at all.
Tonka bean gives a bit of spiciness, it's almost undetectable as it only serves to enhance the main characters without taking the scene.
Somehow, this middle phase reminds me of the drydown of Hermes Twilly Poivree.
The drydown of Coco M. becomes a little deeper and a bit soapy.
Great longevity and good sillage.
Overall, Coco Mademoiselle is a polite, young but also professional scent. Fashionable teen girls can flaunt it without giving the impression to try too hard.
I can totally see why some associate this with light coloured clothes and perfect grooming, but we are far from standing out in the crowd.
The reality is that the undeniable success of this fragrance cursed it and opened the market to countless and well-made replicas, so I don't know if it's worth spending on the real thing, thinking that almost everyone could have something identical without even making the effort to save up for it.
Go for it only if you really love it.
The opening of this is enchanting and draws you in immediately. It's fun and feminine. As it continues I find the scent to become cheap, overwhelmingly patchouli, and quite overrated. I think the fact that you can smell this on a number of women in your day to day turns me away as well.
Today's test run with it did not do much to change my mind on the fragrance. I will keep smelling and testing it to see if my thoughts ever do change. I want to love the hype around CM... but for now it is not for me.
Very inoffensive yet not simple. The patchouli is nothing like the ones in Mugler perfumes, its very smooth and scrumptious and compliments the florals and fruits well.
The performance is SUPERB. The sillage is HUGE and this fragrance is still on my skin after 12 hours.
I fully recommend even blind buying this fragrance. I put it in the same category as the Mon Guerlain: Irresistable, Mature, Sophisticated. But professional.
need to spray in the air and run through it cos it's quite heavy. Suitable for cold climate. not suitable for hot and humid day
I read the reviews and smelled in a friend of mine but wanted to make sure how it goes on my skin. Sister, this is the heaven, just wearing it right now cuz I went to the Perfumery to try it on and , IM GETTING THIS DIAMOND TOMORROW!
I dont know who needs to read this , but if you love Citrus and white flowers you have to get this Friend! You not gonna regret!!!!!!!
It has very high popularity. It's like the new 'Pleasures' by Estee Lauder. But for the modern 25-40 year old. This 'aint for women (or men) that like body splashes, sweet celeb scents, gourmands... this is the polar opposite. The "classic, wearable, young version of No.5"
High quality, great sillage, great longevity. The dry down is always a pleasurable, earthy tea leaves moment with some incense, smoke, and sweet honey...
This is graphed as being heavy on citrus, but I'm surprised by that, because I easily smell as many florals and vetiver with patchouli. To me, this is like a very classy townhouse with 3 floors, each evenly as much square footage as the next, with no jutting edges or loud trim.
I like it and will probably reach for it regularly. I live a life full of social interactions (despite being introverted and not necessarily preferring to), and this is inoffensive and passable to others. I won't need to worry about offending all but possibly the most judgemental and sensitive people (or people who just hate fragrance in general, because this does have moderate sillage). It's close to what one might imagine when thinking of "nice, but quality" perfume. This might become a "dumb reach" for me because I can see that it would be good in every season. It would elevate casual situations, and match formal ones. I enjoy it because it is well done, even if it doesn't have an 'X Factor'.
This one of the rare things that is suited to every season or situation. It's so round and smoothed with mainstream notes that it's virtually incapable of being a faux pas.
It's similar to Flowerbomb in the sense that the fragrance is really the sum of its parts- it's hard to pick out one note that stands out. It's all about how everything works together to create this wonderfully complex scent.
It is feminine, elegant, sophisticated and beautiful. I wouldn't say that it's light/fresh- it's more a perfect mix of citrus, florals and patchouli/musk. It's a great all occasions scent- any season, day or night. Perhaps it may lean a bit more fall/winter because of its depth, but I believe it's wearable whenever.
It lasts long and projects. Love it.
For me, Coco Mademoiselle is the epitome of why you cannot blindly trust marketing, or a bottle. This scent *looks* like it should be fresh, fruity, and flirty--however it is anything but to my nose. It smells like a perfumed French aristocrat from the 17th century... The kind that might heap on oils and scents for days before their weekly bath. Every single time I come across this scent, it becomes the only thing I can focus on for the duration of my encounter--along with how I can escape as soon as possible. The vaguely citrus, brick-heavy patchouli and amber dry-down notes haunt me each and every time. I cringe when women wearing Mademoiselle hug me, because it transfers easily onto my skin and clings like a rabid koala of fragrance. Then I have to deal with the perfume wafting up from my neck until I can locate a washroom and desperately soap my skin (which still doesn't help in most cases--so kudos for the longevity, at least).
For those who enjoy CM's skillfully crafted notes, I'm sure it is probably a sensual, pleasant experience. However, for me, I feel like my nose is being stuffed with highly fragrant cotton until I can barely breathe.
I wanted so much to enjoy this scent like everyone else. But I also like the ability to breathe...
I like the Intense version better, and the watery salmon note is also in that one, but that one is a fun experience.
They did similar with Allure homme sport. Once they get good number of customers they lightened it too much and created another one name "Eau extremem".
Chanel has become third-class tactic company.
People who have old version, 2-3yrs back are getting more than awhole day of pleasure. But new formula is $15 scent. Shame on Chanel.
I have no idea if it is reformulated or not but made me curious to test this what is availble now and I am looking forward to do it. Mine was made in 2010 or 2011.
Anyway, after the initial spray it is quite strong. When my husband asked me in the car what perfume I am wearing I didn't know it was a good sign or bad... But he said it was ok
It is quite long lasting on my skin but after a few hours it (or me!) smells very masculine. Maybe it is patchouli or bergamot?
I can smell the very popular Brut:)
Will not get rid of that bottle because it is a classic and I like it. Not love but like. This is not that moment of my life yet to get rid of all "like" and keep "love" only.
But, it quickly turns medicinal. Mint+eucalyptus. Just like a cough drop and tea. Definitely not a safe blind buy, in my opinion.
Hoping to find a sophisticated, without being too mature, fragrance. This didn't fit.
Moss in Snow
I have tried it various times, at different times of the year, and yet the top notes always remain elusive.
I blind buy Coco Mademoiselle because of the reviews, and I'm not disappointed of my expectations. I usually hates citrus, but this one made me fell in love. It's feminine, sexy, and just elegant. I guess this works with my body chemistry very well.
This has a REALLY strong scent. Half region of my house is filled with this fragrance after I sprayed this. And I usually just use one spray because it's enough. It lasts for a very very long time, I can still smell it after 12 hour, but the scent is kind of 'melts' into my skin and it produced a unique fragrance.
When sprayed, I immediately get the patchouli and rose notes, followed by vanilla and ylang ylang. It dries down to a crisp and clean yet somehow dirty sexy scent at the same time. One of those scents that just "is". It's its own scent and after awhile I can't even discern the individual notes. It will last through a whole day and stick around on pillows, scarves, etc. for days or maybe even weeks afterward.
A little bit goes a long way, so a bottle will normally last me several years and it makes me not mind the price tag so much. But as others have said, this is the one scent that I will buy with little regard to the price to begin with.
