Perfume posts are often tricky because you obviously can't smell it! Chanel is a brand that I've admired and loved for a long time, one that I'll always trust and re-purchases from. Not only are their watches and handbags to die for, but their beauty and fragrance lines are just as brilliant. I wear Vitalumiere Aqua foundation daily alongside my all-time favourite Perfume, Coco Mademoiselle.
I was fourteen when I first went into my mum's bathroom and sprayed Coco Mademoiselle on me. I had never felt so sophisticated and pretty. At fifteen, she bought me my first bottle for Christmas and I've worn it ever since. I guess its my 'signature scent'.
I only sprayed it for special occasions or going out for dinner when I was younger, but over the past year I've worn it almost every single day. I often get compliments when I meet or hug people, asking what I'm wearing.
I'm no good at describing scents but to me its a very warm, sweet, floral scent. Not girly, but more...sexy? It's classic and feminine, definitely not over-powering. Apparently, it has top notes of bergamot and orange; a heart of jasmine and “morning rose petals”; and a base of patchouli, vetiver, vanilla, and white musk. Mmmmm!
The packaging is a gorgeous glass jar, sturdy lid with the Chanel logo. Classic gold and white looks beautiful on a desk top.
The only downside? The price tag. I've always been gifted mine for birthday and Christmas until recently, when I've been purchasing it from airports Duty Free at just under £50.00. Plus side though, it lasts me about 10 months.
This is something I will buy time and time again, I absolutely love it. I've tried the Eau De Toilette too but it isn't as strong. I also own the Lidl dupe 'Suddenly Madam Glamour' that everyone goes on about. It's similar yes, but no way near as long lasting or classic smelling as Chanel.
