Summary: The nouveau riche... Thats what I think of when I smell this. It starts out very floral and dries down nicely into something thicker, woody and floral. Although peope describe it as caramel, I can't seem to smell it. A very nice fragrance. I think of someone in her 20s or 30s who just become herself, so to say. It is in no way a seductive fragrance, its sort of like an independent, aloof, cool fragrance. Interesting...
Summary: I have smelled hundreds of perfumes at this point in my life. Generally, when I smell a new perfume, another perfume immediately comes to mind. That is to say, nothing smells unique to me anymore. But when I smell THIS perfume, it is just so unique to me. I feel like I have never smelled anything else like this before. At first I get a nail polish remover vibe, which almost put me off from it when I first tried it.
Summary: So I'm about to eat my words in so, so many ways. The first time I reviewed this fragrance, I had a negative reaction. Too much patchouli on the drydown - nope, patchouli isn't for me. I was a serious patchouli hater thanks to a few negative reactions to other frags. I've just tested this fragrance again and am actually really intrigued and maybe even on the road to love.
Summary: My first impression of this was I'M IN LOVE AND I NEED THIS IN MY LIFE! After first smelling it, I knew I had to get it and attempted to restrain myself until I ran low on perfume and actually needed some more, but that never happened and I had to buy this irrestable thing a few weeks after the first sniff... It has to be one of my favourite perfumes of all time.
Summary: What happens when you dumb Coco Mademoiselle way, way down? I believe that you end up with something very similar to Jimmy Choo. The patchouli and sweetness are here. The ambiguous masculine musky touch of dirtiness, too, but it's all been flattened into a dimensionless swirl of abstraction. The bottle is a good metaphor. It photographs beautifully. The internet images are so enticing that I nearly bought this juice blind on several occasions.
Summary: A patchouli-caramel bomb. The EdP is dark, sweet and very spicy! It also turns metallic and ashtray kind of dirty on me. And last but not least it's an extremely warm scent, to an extent to make me sweat. :( Which makes sense - it has patchouli in it. Loads of it! Ah, it also has lots of toffee, that was the first thing I noticed. But that overload of patchouli means that Jimmy Choo is a huge no for me.
Summary: as soon as i smelt this i knew my 16 year old daughter would love it. it is a lovely sweet balance between fruit , floral and patchouli. It is her new favourite along with guerlain la petit robe noire.
