Summary: Coromandel has a reputation as being a patchouli and white chocolate scent, yet I don't get much patchouli and I get no chocolate. I get a lot of amber. also vanilla or toffee. Warm, cozy, skews a tad masculine. Reminds me a lot of Boyfriend, which I already own.
Summary: I was lucky to buy Chanel coromandel brand new bottle for half it costs now. The bottle is 6.8 oz huge, will probably last me lifetime, since I only use it when I'm in mood for it. First I bought tiny sample of it, and used it up in 1 week, had to buy full bottle. The smell is absolutely beautiful. If you like oriental, woody smells, you would love Coromandel . I didn't have a chance to explore full les exclusifs line, only Coromandel and Beige, and I love them both.
Summary: When I was a little kid I loved to play with soil/ clean earth (at least I hope it was clean - lol). I found the scent of it extremely alluring and had to restrain myself from trying to eat it. I tasted it once, but believe me, the smell is a lot better. On my skin Coromandel turns into a soil/ clean earth scent after a half hour of wearing. I love that stage and it lasts some time too.
Summary: I recently received a nearly full bottle of coromandel from my mother. I really do love this one. It's very rich, deep, and dark. Perfectly suited for a cold night. It's beautiful and unlike any other perfume I wear. I gravitate towards the easy-to-wear perfumes. Most often I wear sweet, fresh, floral, or fruity scents. Coromandel is different. Coromandel smells special and refined. As much as I love Coromandel, it is nearly unwearable to me.
Summary: I am a huge fan of Coco and Coco Mademmoiselle perfumes thus it's no surprise that i fell in love with 'Coromandel'. Apparently they are from the same family/genre of perfumes. That being said, my husband found this very sexy as he does with all my Chanel perfumes especially 'Allure Sensuelle' and he said that this smells exactly the same as that. I actually agree with him because both exude the warmth, sensuality, spicyness, and complexity of a woman.
Summary: I totally get it now, why my BFF is raving and raving. Chanel Coromandel is mind blowing. I'm in love. It's unlike anything else I've ever smelled. The patchouli is not only earthy, but it's sharp and green and dirty. Underneath, there is a softness, like vintage, perfumed dusting powder, but I also get white chocolate and something...minty? There are so many stages and I'm enjoying each one. I'm shocked some of the reviewers said this is too strong.
Summary: This review hurts because I had such high hopes and I love Chanel fragrances so much. Coromandel is a well done beautiful scent, but all that comes through for me is this note of wet moldy earth. I get some of the patchouli and the spices with a hint of sweetness. The notes that comes forward the strongest I just don't like. It's not worth the buy for me.
Summary: I have been known for years all over the world for my knowledge of and wonderful smelling signature scents. Coromandel can be added to that list. It is a must-have scent if you are an exotic beauty... or just want to look like one! It takes self-confidence to wear this strong, heady scent. It is a classic, very pleasing smell.
Summary: I just wrote a long review on this and is disappeared :(. I found this through Katie, she loves it: http://www.katiepuckriksmells.com/2009/01/coromandel-by-chanel.html This perfume is amazing, I need a giant bottle. The first perfume I can say I need a giant bottle of. Snuggly, cuddly, cozy and soo delicious. LOVE.
Summary: Coromandel is a beautiful warm rich amber-wood-patchouli (earthy, rustic, bohemian), but it's sooooo strong! It's too strong for me, especially for a *spray*, and that's my problem with it. Whoa, what a wallop it packs! It's practically impossible to spray as lightly as it needs to be sprayed. I love the scent, it's just my type and basically everything I ever wanted in a perfume.
