Chanel Coco Mademoiselle : Perfume and Dry Oil Review
10 August 2012
Excerpt: The notes of Coco Mademoiselle–rose, jasmine, patchouli, lychee, orange, grapefruit, vetiver, vanilla, and musk–say absolutely nothing about the scent. It’s not possible to imagine what it smells like from that roster. So many of these notes are rendered completely abstract that what really jumps out is a greenish, herbal patchouli over which have been melted vanilla and the type of fruit syrups used to flavor water.
Excerpt: In Perfumes: the A-Z Guide , Luca Turin writes that Chanel Coco Mademoiselle was a quickly assembled flanker, and its success surprised Chanel. However, in Women's Wear Daily 1 before Coco Mademoiselle launched, Chanel's "Vice President of fragrance and internet marketing" 2 said Coco Mademoiselle could double Coco's business. In the same article, "industry insiders" guessed Coco Mademoiselle might earn as much as $15 million its first year.
