Summary: There has been some negative chatter regarding Jean Paul Gaultier's, Kokorico. It is certainly different, but a good different that deserves an opportunity. Today was my first opportunity to try this fragrance - while not my typical fragrance (I am drawn more to the aquatic and citrus blends), I find it appealing and sufficiently unique to portray a message, "it is good to be different"...
Summary: I really enjoy this. I wasn't a bit reluctant to buy it as I dearly love Le Male by Gaultier. The scent doesn't last quite as long as Le Male, but where that one is vanilla, this is its chocolate (or cocoa) brother. The cocoa isn't too overpowering as there is plenty of other notes to compliment it. The best way I can describe this is...... imagine Burberry London & Kenneth Cole RSVP having hot chocolate!
Summary: You better be ready quick ! The big "money shot" in Kokorico is the rather brief Opening: A sharp, acrid green of distilled fig leaf... poured over a pungent plot of patchouli. (Complete with garden soil and all -as played by the double-duty cacao). A compelling accord that borders on the grotesque, AND the sublime (very Annick Menardo). Everything after that, is rather anti-climatic.
Summary: Kokorico by JPG is really good fragrance for men who want to smell different, it has a really nice dark chocolate opening notes, but it could be better. This fragrance smells amazing passed 30 minutes or more than an hour. In my opinion Kokorico is a good fragrance, not amazing like his brother "Le Male" but a nice fragrance, perfect to go out to the college or a Mall.
Summary: The name is so silly that I would certainly consider a man who'd display a bottle of "Kokorico" on his bathroom-shelf a trifle weird. "Doodle-doo" or "Kokorico" in French is a men's perfume released by Gaultier in 2011 - and this fragrance was given considerable attention because because of its bottle, its name and the advertising campaign related to it.
Summary: When first researching the unique blend of fragrances of this cologne I was skepticle. I wasn't sure if this would smell like something a young guy in his mid 20s would ware. Sure enough it smells fantastic, the scent of youthful safistication, far from smelling like cheep juice. The scent of cocoa is prominent but not nosiating. The Cocoa blends just right with the Patchouli and Cedar. This fragrance has a vintage character to it but a nice smelling vintage.
