My mother always had a bottle of Chanel No. 5 when I was growing up. It’s still the only perfume scent that I always associate with her. So is it any wonder that I’ve also fallen for a Chanel perfume? Like mother, like daughter, as they say.
Enter Coco Mademoiselle. Possibly the most “me” perfume I’ve ever tried (and I’ve tried a few; you can often find me trolling the perfume counters at The Bay and Sephora). Mind, I thought that was the case last year with DKNY’s Be Delicious, but the fresh green apple scent of that one feels too young for me now. In my opinion, Mademoiselle is the perfect balance of youth and sophistication. At first very sweet and strong, the perfume settles into a subtle, fresh, and slightly oriental essence.
The scent is not the only gorgeous aspect of the perfume; the bottle is definitely an attention grabber. Sleek, dainty, and reminiscent of the original Chanel No. 5 bottles [see below], Coco Mademoiselle is a perfume to showcase on your boudoir as well as on your skin.
