This has been unofficially, officially reformulated. The new batches are going to be coming out around the same time #5 L'Eau is launched. Grab the good stuff while you can! Hearing rumours that apparently Chance Eau Tendre is soon to be next. :/

Smelled so bomb in the beginning... I was thinking, "This is it." However the drydown sucks so bad on me so I gotta pass. I think it would smell really nice on clothing though.

Edit: I just found out that my initial review was for the EDT and not the EDP here. I guess I gotta try the EDP cause the scent is pretty dope overall

I really dislike the dry down on this one- on my skin it turns into something sharp and almost metallic. Such a shame because it starts off really pretty.

Overall great feminine scent with amazing longevity. Beautiful to look at, yet so painful to wear. Too bad that rose in it is major headache source.

Love, love, love, LOVE this! I didn't hesitate before buying. I normally wear floral or gourmand smells, but this changed that. The patchouli smell is very prominent, which makes it a very daring smell. Absolutely in love. 10/10. Lasts for hours, too. Doesn't disappoint.

Not a review. Only a question.
Is it too similar to Coco Noir for me to buy this one as well?
Thanks :)

Coco Mademoiselle is like the scent of morning. It has all those orange citrus notes on the top so don't blame me for feeling like I'm up in the morning at about 7am and having orange juice. This is a delicious citrus based perfume. The mandarin is so there. It also contains orange blossom which of course goes well with the citrus, and mimosa, another orange flavored floral scent. There's ylang ylang and a rose. All these flowers have one big thing in common: they smell like citrus. This is all about the orange color, not pink. It's uplifting, refreshing, cool, sweet and feminine. For me this is casual. Nevertheless it's also easy to wear as a formal elegant perfume for black tie galas weddings and any formal occasion. This can be worn with T shirts and jeans as much as it can be worn with a little black dress. It's elegant, sophisticated but youthful, airy, uncomplicated. It's my first Chanel and it makes a superb introduction to Chanel fragrances for beginners. This is also a bit like a less powdery and fresher Miss Dior. I think they have similar notes in common: citrus and rose but this is really so much better because it's got a lighter projection compared to the "mature" Miss Dior. This is a great day time perfume and you can then switch over to Miss Dior at night. The scent dries down to vetiver and very light patchouli. It's not as detectable as the vanilla or vanilla powder. This goes from citrus to rose-ylang to vanilla. It's a well composed perfume. It's even perfect. Beautiful. Just beautiful. I feel very grown up wearing it. It smells delicious and I wish I could just break the bottle and drink up the liquid. Chanel Coco Mademoiselle is one of the best modern Chanel scents available for young girls today. Enjoy. It's already becoming something of a vintage classic.

I love Coco Mademoiselle. I have a sample of it from Sephora because I was trying to decide between it and Miss Dior. I bought Miss Dior but I keep going back to this little sample because I love how it smells. It's more sensual than MD. Miss dior is a young beautiful, expensive, spring (in full bloom) morning and Mademoiselle is a young, beautiful girl fine dining at night. I can't explain it but it smells more relatable than Miss Dior. I could see buying MD to wear on my wedding day and buying Mademoiselle to wear on valentine's and anniversary date nights.
Now I own it and it was worth the price. At first I could vaguely tell the difference between miss Dior and coco mad but now it's very obvious. They both smell similar but miss Dior = morning, coco mad = evening.

@ Camden-girl

take into consideration,

-Body chemistry: some perfumes just doesn't work for some people, where other perfumes will work on you amazingly!

-olfactory: Some perfumes have just such a strong effect on your nostril nerves that they become immune after just minutes, where others around you can smell it loudly!

so all in all it's just one's body that is the deciding factor.

have a nice day.

I have mixed feelings about this one. The perfume is long lasting, and the sillage is fantastic. It smells lovely but I need to be in the mood for it - it needs to be a relatively breezy day.

The first time I was offered to smell Coco Chanel Mademoiselle was when my best friend showed me her perfume which was given to her by one of her suitors. It was light and I didn't spray it because it was not mine to do so. I thought it had a pleasant smell.

Ten years later I bought five bottles of perfume and one of them was Chanel mademoiselle. It was summer break and because I had time to spare, I was looking for my three signature scents. As a girl who often outgrew the perfumes I had, I was always looking for the ultimate scent that would proudly show the world that this scent is exactly me.

Alas from all the ones I bought, Coco Chanel mademoiselle was the least of my favorite. I know it is blasphemous of me to say this but I really did not like it. I love Coco Chanel, she was the epitome of class, grace and style but the smell was so wrong for me. It was too woodsy and flowery. Strong and pungent. It stayed in my skin a long time. It was long lasting that when I sprayed it on my skin it lasted until the evening. I really tried to like it because as it settled down in my skin after 30 minutes of applying, it left a powdery and flowery smell.

I was actually disappointed because I really wanted to like this one. It tried to show a level of sophistication to the wearer. A lady that had class but to me it actually smells old. A young woman such as myself would want a perfume that attracts a guy. It fails in comparison to my Acqua di Gioa or even my little Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue.

I tried to test it with my male companions and though they thought it fragrant, I did not even earn one compliment from any of them. Thus, this will probably be the first and last time, I would buy Chanel mademoiselle. Therefore my search for my signature scent continues.

I give this Perfume 2.5/5.

Dear @chelseaareine

Sincerely welcoming you to Coco Mademoiselle families. You have made a gorgeous decision by choosing this perfume. Hopefully you will experience sweet moment with Coco mademoiselle ahead and maybe it will steal a place in your heart as a signature perfume.

Its a lovely review u gave there, I enjoy reading it. I just love reading different reviews about coco mademoiselle, its like reading a book but with more passion. Because perfume is my passion, each time new review pop up bout this perfume I will be super excited to read.

Im a guy and I enjoy wearing this, been wearing this for almost a year now. Just want to share with you my experience with this perfume hopefully it will gives u more reason to love, love this perfume.

We all have been sniffing thousand of smells since the first day we were born. Maybe even more than we can count, but the most pleaseant smells I ever encounter of course the perfume. The 1st time i smelled CM when I was in college, at that time I was really blown away. Why ? thousand of scents exist out there in this world, but I never encounter this kind of scent. Probably other perfumes when u smell them you still can relate to something in your past like your mom, the clean linen or fresh breezy morning. But this NO, I cant relate it to anything in my past because its very unique to me and to my nose theres nothing like it. So thats the 1st reason why I love this gem.

Second reason, I now have about 15 bottles of perfume collection so I can pretty much says it can be called as perfume wardrobe now. The thing is, other perfumes that I wore do get compliments. They informed, I smells good, they liked it and they want to have the same.

Well CM, I do receive verbal compliments too but the body language or should I say reaction compliments non verbal compliments that really counts. So far I have encounter 3 people who gave that moment reaction. How was their reaction ? They stare at me like 5 seconds, like they were hypnotized they looked at me as if they were under spell without saying a word. Thats how powerful this perfume is.

I called that "The moment" because it was the same reaction I experienced when I first smelled Coco Mademoiselle. After a few squirt on the paper tester, the Chanel Sales Assistant hand it to me and I just stood there sniffing it and in hypnotized mode.

Such a remarkable masterpiece creation by Jacques Polge. Wear it with your heart and soul. Wear it and let the people around you have a piece of rememberance of you through your scents. If they ask, hey what are you wearing ? Just reply...

Its Chanel !

First it was softly citrus. Then it got slightly sweet (I assume the ylang ylang and mandarin), then it turned faintly lemon - mildly sour but not unpleasant. After that the musk and white floral took over. Hours later, a lovely rose is barely there. At first I thought this was generic, then I realized that I was simply recognizing it due to the ubiquity of this fragrance. This brings to my mind white dresses and cotillion. Classy, old money but opens younger.

Going off of reviews, I will try it again when it cools off.

First of all, I just want to say that I registered here in Fragrantica just to review this perfume.

I would not bore you with descriptions of the base and middle notes of this scent. I know there are a lot who had done that already. Besides, I just got a “basic nose” that just senses “basic notes” too. So if you’re looking for professional opinion, skip my review. If you’re just an ordinary lady like me, who wants to know an ordinary opinion too, then read on.

So…. I got this perfume just now. YEP. TODAY. My sister who’s living in the USA just sent me this one (well, I asked her to. I was just a mere visitor of this site before, when I asked her to but this for me. Heh.). I was just so excited and afraid to open the box. Excited – I really want to know the scent since I’m just relying on all of your descriptions here. Afraid – that I might get disappointed.

So what happened first was a disaster. Hah. My nephew got an Acqua di Gio. I love the smell of Acqua di Gio (to anyone who reads this that dislikes it, don’t judge please). Well anyway, I opened his box first and spritzed some on my wrists so I can get a whiff of it.

So when I was about to test my Coco Mademoiselle on my wrist, I literally face-palmed. Since I just sprayed ADG on both wrists, I sprayed it on the back of my palm. Hah. Yep, I know. Totally wrong.

First impression for this perfume? Simple but chic bottle. But BLAH smell. BLAH. BLAH. BLECH. All I could smell on the air was lemons. Yes, lemons. Not oranges as what others described here. And yes, it smells old-ish.

I was furious. Very very furious. Why do others consider this a great perfume? I literally want to throw it away. I was that disappointed.

So I went on my day, blah blah. After several hours and after showering, I decided to try it again. I sprayed it on my pulse points (just a tiny bit). And that’s when it slapped me in the face and proved to me that first impressions do not last all the time.

At first whiff, yes the smell is really citric. I’m still sticking with my thoughts that those are lemons that I’m smelling. But after a few minutes, it settled onto something. And I was just blown away.

I am not really the type of lady who loves this kind of perfumes. I was more of an EDT gal. I want something light and fresh. I was actually thinking of getting the Chance Eau de Tendre, but I thought to try Coco Mademoiselle instead. And I’m glad I did.

After an hour, it settled again onto something quite masculine – my favorite part. Okay, some of you might think that it would smell manly. But it is not. The scent is so light and I think you could call it musky but floral at the same time. That would sound absurd, yes. But believe me, the combination works perfectly. JUST SO GORGEOUS.

Also, whenever wind hits me, I could smell some other notes I could not decipher. For me, the combination is so unique! (and I’m so glad that here in our country, this fragrance is not a normalcy. HAH.)

After a few more hours, the lasting scent is now vanilla. I am not a big fan of vanilla scents. But this one is just.... UGH. sweet. Sweet in a very good way.

Yes, this perfume makes me fall in love with it more as hours pass.

Longevity: I can still smell it on me (it's now 6 hours since I put it on)
Sillage: Superb (my boyfriend visited me today and upon entering my room, he was like “What’s that smell? It’s so fragrant.” Yes, it fills my room. ;)

Final thoughts:

I’m a 26-year old professional and I believe this would suit me so I decided to ask my sister to get this for me (I paid her, okay! I’m just living in Asia, so I want to get the perfume straight from the USA since I’m afraid I’d get a fake one here. Heh.) I loved fruity scents before, but I want to transition into something more mature now. And I’m so glad Coco Mademoiselle is what I chose.

It's a remarkably made fruitchouli, boasts an impressive sillage and decent longevity. The pink liquid says it all, very girly, jejune and lively but it is a Chanel, and Chanels do take pride on sophistication and it is a sophisticate itself.

Coco M'lle exudes the sweet, juicy and sour nuances of an orange, plus the bitterness and pungency of bergamot. It then develops into nondescript florals of indolics of jasmine and orange blossoms and of the ylang ylangs, roses and mimosas. They are an accord, losing their individualities to give way to a commendable symphony of a fragrance. It will fill a room, very potent and unusually rare these days. I pray with all my heart that this perfume be not reformulated for purposes of eviscerating it but to improve on its rather flat and unimpressive base. The top and middle notes are powerful, yet when the foundation pushes through, the former evaporates and they are not coalescent. Very disappointing for the drydown smells mostly of vetiver and musk, a quality Miss Dior (new) and La Vie est Belle exhibits. Very metallic, very masculine, the concept of femininity being defeated for a faulty counterpointing. I wish they improve upon this. But amongst the fruitchoulis, this stands out the most, harboring a character instead of only pleasing noses. Intense, innovative and of course a Chanel. If you know what I mean.

Personal Note: I smelled Coco M'lle on somebody else and it smelled of demure florals with the very nice orange. But on me, I kept being pessimistic that it smells strongly of patchouli and orange. I really appreciated when my intern told me I smelled like how the other person smelled of elegant florals and sweet citrus (that is after I asked her to smell us both and compare, she insisted both of us smelled the same). Up close, Coco M'lle smells of patchouli, orange and the nondescript florals, but its sillage which I will not be able to smell is the most wonderful part--elegant, demure, sophisiticated tinged with madarin. Coco M'lle is multi-faceted and definitely deserved the #1 spot in sales in the past few years.Well-blended and calibrated.

I have a bottle. I have had it for about a year. While it suits my chemistry, I'm not exceptionally keen on it for several reasons. One being that it's nothing special. It really has no memorable effect other than to cause the more olfactorious among us to say "she is wearing Chanel." It smells, quite literally, like the perfume counter at Neiman Marcus. Just a mishegoss of inoffensive femininity. But maybe I'm being difficult because I wore it throughout my pregnancy. So, in essence, it vaguely reminds me of morning sickness.

For me, one of the best made perfume, with great longevity and silage and so elegant bottle. For 15 years, I was never "out of stock" of this beauty, The only negative thing about it is, that so many people share the same opinion. It is everywhere :((((
So I wear it less in public and more for my personal pleasure. I know it is a bit decadent to use rather expensive perfume at home, but with EdP, 1 or 2 sprays please me for entire day.

I love love love this. I have worn it almost everyday since I found it. I am sold - it's great.

I know a lot of people comment that this smell is everywhere, not unique. But I really don't care. I wear it for me. I love the smell of it.

It's girly but has a bit of a masculine smell to it, too which I really like.

Prada is one of my very favorites and I can see CM being my spring/summer and Prada being my fall/winter.

Just for the record, I have Chanel, Suddenly Madame Glamour, Designer Imposters, and dupe oil. They are all very similar and all beautiful.

few perfumes that vibrate at the same frequency as you.If you are lucky enough , you can express that feeling.COCO and I are in the same page we are tuning

It feels like I don't put a perfume rather I emit this perfect smell;It doesn't smell good nor bad it smells like me(I am not saying that will be the case with everyone ;after all, it depends on the body chemistry)

It opens up with a lot of sour citrus then it fades to fresh cut roses with sour oranges and earthy patchouli
It feels classy and mostly for mature women with masculine vibes.

impressive longevity and projection even in hot and high humidity weather

COCO won't be in grey-zone, It will be a hate or love relation

I hate this scent. I actively avoided people that wore this, thinking they had oversprayed some awful nivea hair product or something. I had no idea for ages that it was this perfume. I'm equally surprized that it's so common and well liked. Apparently I get something from this that is the scent equivant of nails down a chalk board.

Smells like sharp citrus at first and then dries down to wet dirt and stones and ashtray on me. I've always hated the drydown on me. Smells nothing like Miss Dior which is much, much sweeter.

Coco Mademoiselle is just absolutely gorgeous! Very warm and inviting. Not only is Mademoiselle an attractive scent, it comes in a classy bottle. This happens to be one of my top favorite women's fragrances from the house of Chanel, right along with Chanel No 5.

So I came back to this again this spring, after a year of leaving it off my perfume radar. I reviewed this when I was first testing it out and enjoyed it, but found it to be sort of generic/familiar and lacking any depth so I left it. This spring I've totally changed my mind on that and am craving the delicious light musky scent.

I've tried many similar fragrances this year and this one has STILL stuck out from the rest and I still keep coming back to it to test it over and over. On me it constantly lasts a solid 10+ hours on my skin and in my clothes (and this being the 2015 one). I pick up a lot of bright citrus and musk, combined with some lovely florals and a soft hint of vanilla in the dry down (my fave). I don't usually gravitate to this sort of bright fragrance, I like the warm and cozy kinds, but something in it keeps dragging me back for another sniff.

Perfect for any occasion, sensual and feminine, but only one or two sprays. More than that, I tend to find it gets screechy. I'm glad I finally found a Chanel I can wear, even though it took me a year to figure it out.

That's my second review for this fragrance.I must say the season is everything. I firstly tested this in the middle of winter and musk and flowers were extremely sharp to me. As for now, I tested it yesterday and I instantly bought a small bottle! Musk and flowers are no overwhelming at all. All notes apre perfectly blended and I basically smell the orange and citruses. It's amazing that they don't turn to sour, but they are fresh! I think this scent works amazing on me exclusively at spring and summer time. Patcouli is not cloying at all. Overall, this perfume worth the price. It's fresh, classic, elegant, sophisticated, innofensive and clean at the same time. You will absolutely make a good first impression by wearing this juice. It can support all styles: casual, formal, proffesional, everything. Excellent for any age too. Just keep in mind that this perfume alters from season to season.

I've loved this since I was a kid..I cannot believe I've been lusting over this one for 15 years now. It's so gorgeous.

I've never purchased myself, as I've indulged in other Chanel perfumes and other houses scents and I always regret it. This is one of a kind and produces perfectly, no mismatching or horrid trails of scent following you. Just pure heaven floating around you for a long, long, LONG time. The longevity in this is crazy! I cannot stand patchouli or any type of citrus, but somehow Coco Mademoiselle makes me love them, just for a few hours at least.

This is the smell all the fabulous women I know wear. It's the epitome of class and elegance, it's timeless and anyone of any age can wear it.

This is the longest lasting fragrance I have ever owned ! Hands down .... That's it , I have tried 1000's . I have to be honest I tried to get away from Coco mad because it's so popular !! I really can't stay away for too long . It just lasts forever and smells so good on me. I know everyone wears it and its not the most original fragrance but it just smells so good! Since 2001 I have been in love with it ; I just tried other fragrances because of the popularity of Coco Mad. Finally I don't care if every second girl on the street wears it . I love it and it loves me .

Sophisticated with a spark! I love love love the top note, which smells sparkling youthful yet sophisciated on me, if that makes sense.

I am not a big fan of the "popular" perfume, more of a Jo Malone gal. But this perfume surprises me with its dancing sparkling top note. It was like magic when I sprayed it. The dry down is ok, just like any other department perfume. Lasting power on me is so strong, that I usually just need one pump, no more than two. Just one pump I could smell it on the next day... which is the reason that I only wear this on special occasions, as I don't want to overwhelm my coworkers or myself. And I would much rathe smells unique and mild with my Jo Malone mixes on a daily basis.

That being said, I would still keep one bottle of CM in my collection, just for the magic top notes. Perfect for 20+ and even 30+.

I've worm Chanel Coco Mademoiselle EDP for so many years as my "go-to" signature fragrance. Apparently I did not choose this scent but rather it chose me, ha! Years ago someone sprayed me with it and had Never gotten so many compliments on a fragrance before. Quite simply, it goes with my body chemistry. However, I've broken up with CM recently. As a girl that loves individuality, just couldn't take that ALL my friends were wearing this scent!! Seems just recently it's gotten very popular, but all retro scents are making a come-back. That said, I still do wear it occasionally & continue to have people stop me to say, "ahhh you smell so lovely". On me the patchouli is not prevalent but the orange-citrus in the top gently lifts up the rose and jasmine. The floral notes linger on me nicely with the musk and earthy notes giving it richness. I suppose I will always keep a bottle of this Chanel gem in my collection. It's a classic for sure--guess that's why it's so popular!

The review two down is offensive, rude, ageist and insults the mental health of inquisitive customers. I hope the moderators take note! Also, many of us seek out and buy adored vintage perfumes and are quite adept at examining batch codes for the year of formulation. There is extensive research on the internet to determine vintage by batch code and brand. I love to hear other's opinions, good or bad, of perfumes, so I can determine if I would like to sample, blind buy, etc. Criticism of others is NOT why I come here. In closing, I enjoy Coco Mademoiselle. Note: Offensive appears deleted. Thanks!

I think this is the site for us to freely give our review. Whether it's about the fragrance, the bottle or even the batch. Thanks to the diversity and variety comments I have learn a lot of things.

I don't think you have the right to stop people "OKAY STOP WITH THE BATCH CODE COMMENT NOW". Maybe you don't want to talk about it, but people who love and adore this gem will talk about it a lot.

I do enjoy this perfume, if not why would I switch to 100ml from my empty 50ml bottle knowing that it's been reformulated. Plus I even get the Velvet Body Oil to layer it with.

We all love this perfume, but if reformulation makes this gem not lasting more than a cheap perfume that sold at the convenient store. Oh u better believe me, reformulation & batch code would be the hottest topic we all going to talk about.

Coco Mademoiselle is one of the best perfume on earth. It's Chanel !

My 3rd review here, just bought a brand new 100ml (Batch Code March 2015) clearly after reformulation unit. My previous 50ml has been an amazing experience for me.

While I was at the Chanel boutique, the SA recommend me this 200ml Coco Mademoiselle Velvet Body Oil which actually looks like body mist because the flacon is plastic instead glass.

So the SA spray it on me and wow !! It smells amazing. It's actually smells the same like CM that I smelled in 2009 before reformulation version only that it does turn milder within 15minutes.

It absorb well into the skin and doesn't gives you the sticky feeling. Then the SA spray the CM EDP layering it on top.

Both are good combination. You guys should try it. And for those who don't like the loud and screaming CM should get this Velvet Body Oil. It actually quiet long lasting but in the intimate and soft waft way.

Get the Velvet Body Oil layer it with any CM concentration that you love either parfum, Edp or Edt or maybe just wear the velvet body oil itself as your lovely and mild scent. It will change your perspective about Coco Mademoiselle beside...

It's Chanel !

Top notes are orange, mandarin orange, orange blossom and bergamot. Really Fresh cirtusy note in the opening. The top note is really inviting and hugging type of vibe.

Middle notes are mimosa, jasmine, turkish rose and ylang-ylang. I try to smell those notes unfortunately i can't sense them too much. Jasmine, ylang-ylang and Turkish rose are too light. From the opening to heart notes, still orangee vibe. BUT on paper strip, floral notes are so strong and identical. I think I should spray on my shirt. YES, i sprayed it on my shirt and those notes were staying amazingly on my shirt. Strong and powerful orangee with florals notes.

Base notes are tonka bean, patchouli, opoponax, vanilla, vetiver and white musk. What i get the most in dry down are tonka bean, patchouli and musk.

This perfume is really really easy to love. Pleasant, inoffensive, inviting, sweet, fresh, clean & flowery

This smells like my sweat! It must be that patchouli doesn't jive with my skin.

Edit: I've since tried quite a few patchouli scents and had no problem with them, so the problem must be with something else.

I have the first version with no reformulation, I have kept it almost unused for the last 7 years I was going to throw it away because I thought that it was turned,but I sprayed a little and this time I loved it and it is still fresh just that the color had change to a peach kinda pink. Now the CM that they sell these days is a different pink from the one I remember. I don't like it, but I'm going to buy Coco next time.

Verdict first: absolutely, positively "yes" from me - pure panache and sophistication in a bottle.

I must confess, much as I admire Chanel perfumes, and would LOVE to like them, I struggle with the usually dominant patchouli notes. On other people I love it; on me, not so much. However, Coco Mademoiselle...

CM is an invigorating and empowering scent. It announces (in a French accent) "ELEGANCE! SOPHISTICATION!" while neither overpowering nor clinging to any specific age group. It makes me hold my head high and smile.

The scent opens with a burst of citrus - mostly sweet mandarin. And this is where the magic happens: While citrus notes tend to linger for the brief opening of most perfumes, CM's mandarin BECOMES the drydown, along with orange blossom, both floating above a subtle base of patchouli (which in this scent almost reminds me of mint) and a very subtle puff of powder. Absolutely exquisite!

Longevity is amazing at over 8 hours on me.
While not comparable as a substitute, I recommend Balenciaga Paris for a less concentrated, yet equally elegant option (with less patchouli). Good for those that need more time to save for CM!

Overall: highly recommended. Coco Mademoiselle has reminded me that perfume can be POWERFUL! It can change the way we walk, talk and carry ourselves. Instant transformation!

What a beautiful scent, no wonder it's so popular! I already had the Lidl dupe of this, but I had to get the real one, and now I do. I'm so happy :)

Fresh , feminine and sexy. It's perfect when you need something that works from day to night. I guess you can smell it on almost everyone, but only the lucky one can smell it on me!

This is my first Chanel perfume. My fiance bought me the 50 ML EDP for my 26th birthday last December. I wrote another review below as Blonde McBeatz, but now I'm Butterball.

Anyway, my first encounter with this fume was in Feb. 2015. My fiance and I are at a house party, and I smell something creamy and divine on a lady I had just met. I ask her what she is wearing. She tells me, "It's Coco Mademoiselle, I got a sample at the Bay. It's really expensive though." I never saw that lady again but the scent is engrained in my memory. I scour the Internet for all CM reviews, including this site. I know skin chemistry is a factor, so I head over to the Bay and spray myself with it. It smells like I remember it, with an initial burst of citrus, settling into a beautiful, soft cloud of florals with a warm, round foundation of vanilla and a hint of spice.

So after my sample spray, I know I have to own a bottle. My fiance knows I'm a perfume junkie, so he knows I want some kind of perfume for my birthday. I show him the bottle in the store and spray it again on myself, and he says he loves the smell. So December rolls around and guess what arrives in the mail? A beautiful petite box with one of the finest elixirs in the world! I was so giddy and excited!

Now I've gotten to know CM a little better, and I still adore her. You don't need much, a couple sprays'll do ya. So far I've worn it in the winter and it smells absolutely amazing! Can't wait to see how spring/summer manipulates the notes! Thanks, stranger lady, for introducing me to this gem. Funny how certain events lead to other events! This little bottle will always be close to my heart, as my love bought it for me. The scent is absolutely beautiful! I guess I can say it has "scentimental" value!

That's the perfume to go for when you want to look professional,formal,classy and sophisticated. Ideal for meetings, work and job interviews. The woman who wear this scent is powerful,successful and knows how to get whatever she wants. However,that perfume is just not for me unfortunately.On my skin becomes extremely sharp and soapy.

This is the one perfume I have a love/hate relationship with - I love it because well, it's Chanel, and smells like what I imagine a timelessly beautiful 30 something New York buinesswoman would smell like! Not over powering or too soft but not getting the oriental vibe from this? I also, on the other hand, hate the fact that at least 15-20 other women in my work wear this!! The quest for the signature scent continues! It may be a long one lol!

When I first sniffed this I hated it, and now it probably my favorite perfume. It took some time getting use to, but after my coworker started wearing it I just had to have it. I love to associate scents with destinations, memories, etc, so I bought a bottle at the airport in Barbados. I am so happy I did! It is probably the most complimented perfume I wear. It is sexy, classy, but not old. My only issue is that it way too popular. However, I love to wear it because it makes me really happy. I can't believe that I am a patchouli fan, a scent I never bonded with; however Coco M. has just enough to make it oh so beautiful. For me, it is the most prominent scent with a touch of floral. It is woody yet sweet and then sour. It lasts all day and night on me.

The most intense headache that follows you all day! That's what I get with this one, got it as a gift and tried to tolerate it twice without any luck. It is a constant hammer of Ylang-Ylang pounding on your head. Can't get any other notes besides Ylang-Ylang, bergamot and Jasmine. Just because it's Chanel doesn't mean a good.

This is one is really fresh and beautiful, in the beginning I had to get use to it. Now it is always nice to smell it on someone else, that's right on someone else because everybody is just wearing it! That is such a shame because I like to be original with the perfumes I wear. I had it in my hands last time at the store, ended up buying Chance just to be more original, I just don't like the fact that I smell it everywhere... it is delicious though.

My new job is horrendous. The only good thing about it is that i can afford a (small!) bottle of Chanel every so often as a treat for enduring what feels like daily hell. My choice this time was coco Mademoiselle. Not taken lightly i may add- it took me 6 weeks to finally decide between coco & coco mlle but im confident i made the right choice. Sweet, uplifting, classy, with good projection & lasting power. I also own the famous dupe- suddenly madame glamour by Lidl- and i have to say it is a well done dupe indeed- but the quality of Chanel speaks for itself. Really beautiful & i'm ecstatic to have it in my collection!

I love how this smells from a distance, but I don't like to smell it up close, directly from the skin. When you first spray it, it smells so strong and citric. Then, it mellows around 30 minutes into a soft, clean floral. After it sets for around 2 hours, the vanilla and warmth kicks in. I hate warm, cloying fragrances, so I do not enjoy the dry down at all. However, if sprayed sparingly, it smells heavenly, iconic, and expensive!

Ok. So, I'm a sweet fragrance lover, no question about it. That's why I'm really surprised I like this. I don't find it sweet at all. I feel it a bit sharp, actually. It reminds me of a barbershop blended with cigarette smoke. And I love it.

This perfume is a classic. A must have for all women. The only thing that I do not like of this perfume is that once it is opened it has to be used within two years, because if not it's lasting power starts decreasing. Before two years I used to spray only five puffs of perfume and the smell used to last for hours, now it fades away after an hour. Still I think this is one of the best perfumes I own.

OK so I like this perfume; not overly mad on it BUT - I was recently in Lidl (UK supermarket) and I saw they had a perfume called "Suddenly - Madame Glamour". Anyway I had a whiff out of pure curiousity and BAM - COCO MADEMOISELLE! The likeliness is UNCANNY. There are loads of articles about it all over the internet now saying how identical they are and people are snapping it up - £4 for 50ml! I wear it at work now (liberally) as its a nice daytime scent and I do get asked if it is Chanel alot! If you're in the UK and like this perfume I'd suggest heading down to Lidl - greatest dupe yet.

I tried this on tonight for the first time from a manufacturer's vial sample, before I looked up the notes here. First thoughts: very pretty, somewhat unisex in a youthful, sporty way, I really like this...it might be my first Chanel....I'm so glad it doesn't have any patchoulli! Then I looked it up....an overwhelming number of people voted this as primarily a patchoulli

Coco Mademoiselle is a fleeting infatuation. There is something alluring about it at first glance, but however as time goes on, it becomes monotonous and uninteresting, entirely one-dimensional.

It is the kind of fragrance for young women who love shopping and gossip, who read TMZ and the DailyMail and look for discount fashions on YouTube and reddit without thinking about the seamstresses and the young women who made those clothes under horrible working conditions. It is the kind of fragrance that mindlessly looks to celebrities for comfort and thinks all history books tell the truth. It is the kind of fragrance that has a LA valleygirl OMG! accent that tells of weekends at the plastic surgeon and dental whitening clinics documented with a selfie in a MySpace angle to upload onto Instagram.

Coco Mademoiselle captures perfectly the vacuousness of American culture. It is Disney's version of a fairy tale, a happy ending abruptly slapped onto a Shakespearian masterpiece.

This is a lovely perfume, very memorable, lady-like and it smells classy. The only reason I would NOT buy it is because I've met way too many women wearing it. Too popular and overused. To me it smells the same on everyone I know or don't know but passed by me on the street. And funny enough all these women seem to be of quite different types, personalities and temper, yet they all wear this ''uniform'' fragrance. WHYY? It's like this uniform perfume has cast its veil over them, washing away their personal style or charm. This perfume is screaming: ''ME, ME, ME, don't care about the woman wearing it, ME!!'' My 2 cents. Overall I like it, but would never buy it.

Lovely Chanel perfume. I have to say that for quality you can't beat this frag, it is a lovely floral with a sweet base and patchouli notes that doesn't over power it.

Having said that, it's not for me. It is great to smell on others but for me I will stick with my fave Shalimar parfum initial.

It is office friendly and you will get lots of compliments, a pretty sophisticated but fun fragrance.

Classy,elegant and young,if you like to hear compliments about your perfume then don't hesitate buying this one,wear it and turn to a chic french mademoiselle,i've never met anybody dislike this gem,you can wear it on every ocasion,both office and dates,both days & nights and during warm and cold days(my most favourites are spring and fall days)
My bottle is 2013 version and staying power is good(around 8hours) and sillage is something between moderaite and heavy
I,m not sure this one is a love or just a like,l think i like the scent and i love how wearable and winner it is,thanks god citrus notes are not dominant on me,there is chanel's signature(dominant,well known patchouli which i like it in many different perfumes)with some flowers(specially rose+jasmin)and a hint of vanilla

definitely classic and feminine. Maybe suited more towards 30+ yr olds. I love Coco and Coco Noir, but this I am really on the fence about. On me I get the citrus first off and I do get the vanilla and tonka too with a sparkling mimosa. Those stand out along with the patchouli. A spring and fall perfume. Work friendly though wear lightly. I think if some floral was taken out and maybe some pepper added then I would like it more on me. Nice though. I do not get any Coco in this, so I do not really know why its a Coco flanker. It does have a hint of Noir though. But neither Noir or Mademoiselle have a lot in common with Coco.

So after having a horrible week, I am a proud owner of this uplifting perfume. Today I had to move over thousand books, while my coworker stayed beside me and observed. So I said to myself that I deserve a decent treat and grabbed a bottle of Coco Mademoiselle during my lunchtime break. I came back home, took a refreshing shower and sprayed myself lavishly with the fragrance. It's not a real love, but a BIG like for me. What I find unique about this perfume is that is sour, but at the same time sweet on my skin. Very longlasting and perfect for all seasons and ocassions.

I never thought that I will fall for a classic well-known perfume like Coco Mademoiselle. I found a 30 ml bottle in a perfume store that is going to close and I got it in a great price. That's why I bought it.

I have no words to describe. People and even Chanel says that it has a masculine undertone and it's true. This perfume makes me feel strong, alive and classy! It really makes bad feelings invisible when use it. The citrus character hugs all the floral notes and the undertone is like a sweet but not sugary powder. Patchouli/rose is light compared to other notes and in my opinion Coco Mademoiselle is closer to be called citrus/aromatic. I would never change the feeling of safety it gives me and this is very rare to be happen with a perfume, at least for me. It's a like but not a love. I think the best season to use is summer, daytime, 25+ ages.

After some hours it smells so darkly nice. It can't be compared to Miss Dior line with such a strong citrus content. Nowdays, the only perfume I could compare with is Miss Dior EDT 2014 (new). It looks like they watered down a bit the harsh but not bad citrus character and lights are on patchouli/rose combination. It's versatile, like the sunlight passing through a diamond and it must smell different on each skin. Safe for every occasion specially business, but do not over use it. Coco Mademoiselle has an oriental character, a copliment getter, no one can refuse this and it could be: "Let's get in some trouble but always with class."

p.s: Finally, after many hours I have to say that it smells very close to Miss Dior Chérie 2011-discontinued, but with way more citrus and dusty depth. People who miss this perfume don't cry, it's sister will exist forever! The good thing is that both have a completely different ending. Coco Mademoiselle ends up with a soft sparkling lemony neatness.

I wear this in night time or if the weather is cold, not really good when you wear it during a hot humid day. Great for business meetings or in elegant parties. Smell a bit citrusy in the 1st spray and it has a mature sweet scent and a bit musky:) not a fresh type of perfume for me, for me this perfume is an oriental-sweet type of perfume, sillage is GOOD!

I go back and forth with this one. I absolutely loved it when it first came out but now it seems lighter and fruitier? I wish it was as seductive and rich as it used to be. It was perfect but I think something has changed over the years. I know, actually. It's still good but if you can imagine, a must have- before.

This is strong, very strong. It projects a long way and lasts a very long time so you only need a very small amount or you'll overwhelm the room. It's a nice smell (when you get the dosage right) and it has a sister spirit in Miss Dior Eau de Parfum. I admit I prefer the Dior but this is very nice too. I think it needs the right body chemistry to bring out the best in it due to its power in a way that few perfumes do.

The base notes of the patchouli, white musk and vanilla hold the jasmine, rose and assorted citrus notes in balance along with tonka bean. A lot of how this perfume works on you depends on how your skin likes vetiver, I think. It's an elegant fragrance and I certainly think Madame Chanel would approve of Mademoiselle Coco. It's rather sweet. The ylang ylang in it tips me towards describing it as a floral rather than a citrus scent as might think from seeing the notes above, although the orange blossom comes and goes as if it moves in the breeze.

I think that Chanel Allure and No.5 are better fragrances if you're going to start a journey with Chanel but I wouldn't put anyone off buying this - as long as you try a modest amount on your skin first.

I don't think that there's a certain time of day or time of year for this fragrance that works best but I associate it with spring. I have no idea why! I do think it is one for women in their 20s and 30s. In that respect, it is named most aptly. I think the key difference between this and Miss Dior Eau De Parfum is who you're wearing it for. Coco Mademoiselle is for a girl's own pleasure but Miss Dior is the one to wear if you want to encourage someone to nuzzle up to you and hold you close. But if you like one, you should certainly try the other.

This does not smell sweet on my skin, it smells more floral and orange blossom. It is a sillage monster and 1-2 sprays is all anyone should be doing. It is cloying to me, and I don't like it. The only reason I kept it is that men seem to love it. I have had two boyfriends who literally would request me to wear this after they smelled it on me. One of them even had the nerve to text me after we had broken up to ask me what perfume I wore. So there is that for it. I also find that if I shower with it on, it seems to get stronger while in the shower and then I can still smell it after getting out and drying off.

Well, what could i possibly add that hasn't already been said about this current-day classic? It's a Chanel perfume, so it will have fans regardless.

I find it to be an extremely sophisticated and feminine scent. It makes me want to put on my best blouse and dress shoes and gold jewelry, and spend a few minutes doing my hair, just so i can feel worthy of wearing this classy scent. The opening notes are most definitely palpable citrus, which i am not typically a fan of, but then i hang in there, because shortly thereafter, the rose, other floral notes, and patchouli begin to kick in, turning the perfume from a mere bud to full blossom.

This isn't the type of scent that i wear every day, and most times not even every week, since sometimes i am unwilling to tolerate the opening citrus notes on any given day. However i love owning it and i'm glad i have it. I find this one much more tolerable for me to wear than the current day Chanel No.5, which i can't stand due to it being too overpowering for my senses.

In short, this is like a classy, citrusy but slightly sweet martini in the modern-day perfume world that deserves to be appreciated, even if from afar.

I had reviewed this scent in the past, and had concluded I didn't really like it, as I got a urine note somewhere. That, I have come to realize, was the edt. I have since tested the edp, which I find infinitely better.

However, if I am not intruding, I would like to leave a review for Lidl's Suddenly Madame Glamour, which I have many times read is a dupe for Coco Mademoiselle edp, so if anyone is interested in buying the cheaper bottle, they can have some information.

Suddenly Madame Glamour starts off citrusy, with bergamot and orange. Nice, not too zingy, not too bitter, somewhat fresh. The scent soon shows hints of candy floss, but it is still not cloying or too sweet. I also get orange blossom and rose, which bring to mind luxury soaps, but also some powder, beautiful and light. I have to say, the floral tones do remind me of Chanel, with the classic floral heart! I don't get patchouli really. Any depth I think is due to musk. Sweet and clean is a good (albeit lacking in detail) summary of Suddenly Madame Glamour. It is not a spot-on dupe for CM, but it is still a pretty and chic perfume.

Longevity leaves a lot to be desired: 3 hours, then it fades to almost nothing. But for the price (4,99 euros for 50 mls) reapplication won't break the bank.

I will definitely enjoy my blind buy of a bottle!

The sample of this perfume has come to my hands accidentally. I would never try anything from Chanel on own wish because none seemed to stand out and all had that distinctive soapy note. Mademoiselle was quite nice even I loved it for one day until I decided to go out in the street. And then I felt like I got older ten years and my walk is slower and I need long skirt and flat shoes and grey curls...Yes, I felt that old school soap note again and I said no. Not inspiring. I know people who love old elegant soaps, smell of old books or are crazy about vintage stuff but I am thoroughly futuristic personality from character to image. I love scent of freshly printed books, gummy bears and cleaning products. Definitely pass.

I avoided this because it just seemed so feminine and popular and lady-like. I wanted to be the type of person who wore moodier, darker, or woodsier perfumes. But I think I may be fighting my true feminine self because Mademoiselle is SO lovely that even I can't resist.

I tried it out at the Macy's, finally, and it was love-at-first-smell. It's feminine and classic and joyous. It's not a sexy scent to me at all, but rather seems to embody an effortless glow that happy people have. That, in turn, is attractive.

Very citrus-y on me at first and dries down to a comfortable and pretty musky, spicy patchouli and vanilla. Very nice! I'll be purchasing a full bottle soon!

What else can I say that hasn't already been said about this absolutely beautiful and popular fragrance? I never wore it because it was popular. I resisted the urge to buy it when it was first released. I had some more fragrances that where not Chanels that people told me smell exactly like Chanel Mademoiselle which I had never tried. And then I thought well let's see what all the fuss is about. Mademoiselle is an elegant perfume for young women who are starting to develop as taste in Chanel fragrances which have always been associated with mature, classy, sophisticated, worldly women, presumably because that's how we think Gabrielle Coco Chanel was like. There's a lot going on in this perfume and it's more than the sum of it's parts. It has a little bit of everything: fruits, flowers, patchouli, vetiver, vanilla, musk. For whatever reason the chemistry between all the notes really works. To me this is mostly orange, the citric notes which top the layers are strong. And there's probably orange blossom and neroli in here that they aren't listing. The flowers that most jump out of this perfume are mimosa and Ylang-Ylang. Jasmine and rose, no. I can't even smell them. I surround myself with roses all the time and as a singer I get a lot of rose bouquets as gifts. This doesn't smell like roses at all. This is mostly mimosa. Then you get to feel the base notes as the fragrance dries down on your skin. It's patchouli and vanilla and vetiver, working a strangely beautiful clean scent not powdery not soapy just clean skin. It's probably got some amber that they aren't listing. The vanilla is there and yet it never becomes a gourmand vanilla or sweet vanilla. This is an oranges and yellow flowers vanilla skin scent. As it's not very loud or projects too much it's easily wearable any place anywhere. This is what people like to call office friendly inoffensive. No one can get allergic to this one. It's sweet, simple and doesn't even pretend to be a loftier Chanel. It's like Chanel's youngest sister who is ok with having nothing to do with Chanel No. 5 or Coco Eau de Parfum or Cuie de Russie Bois des Iles or any of the other la ti da Chanels. This one is a baby but it's a such a well behaved and teachable baby. It's like she can still grow up to be as good as No. 5. She's not there yet but the person who wears this can eventually graduate into the other Chanel perfumes. This girl is still in high school but Chanel is paying for her entry into University. I love it and wear it infrequently because way too many women wear this. I don't want to go anywhere smelling like everyone else.

Upon first spray, I absolutely loved this! It was the kind of citrus that I really enjoy. It smelled very expensive. But then it started to dry down immediately and I started to smell the patchouli. I never smelled patchouli before, and it smelled minty and slightly moldy (sage has this moldy effect to my nose as well). Honestly, it's interesting, but I'm not sure why it has a cult following. I sort of like it, and I only smell the moldy part if I actually sniff my wrists. My attention is piqued. I might buy a 5mL sample.

This is a beautiful citrus and patchouli scent, not overly sweet or floral. It's feminine without being girly (I can't imagine this being worn by a teenager), sophisticated without being mature, modern yet classic (this is not a fruity floral that seems to be so popular currently).

But if you're looking for a scent that is a bit more unusal or one that isn't being worn by everyone and their mother, then I suggest that you might want to pass this one by.

Coco Mademoiselle is a hugely popular fragrance. You know someone who wears this as their “signature” if you don’t yourself. Admittedly, I don’t think this perfume smells on me, for reasons of skin chemistry, as it should but I will review it anyway.

On me, there is a fruity undertone. Coco Mlle is set apart from it’s sister Chance by a spicy dry rose note, which on the right skin chemistry is stunning. It has that modern “clean” patchouli and characteristically Chanel fizzy citrus combination which has spawned many copycats, setting and defining the trend of “modern chypre.” I’m not going to debate whether Coco Mademoiselle and friends such as Miss Dior (Cherie) can be considered chypres. Without oakmoss, I personally don’t think so. Anyways back to the patchouli, I think it can smell deeper and richer on the right skin chemistry, intertwining with the rose and enveloping the wearer in very sensual and wonderful fragrance. On me though it smells rather wan and light, not particularly noticeable like it is on others. Most of the time with Coco Mlle I get mostly a light fruitiness and citrus. Oh well.

This is my first Chanel buy, and I'm so glad. This perfume is absolutely beautiful in smell and very long lasting. The bottle and the color of the liquid is gorgeous. I feel like a princess when I spray this on myself. The combination of the different notes smells like white chocolate to my nose, which I'm sure that I'm the only person who thinks so. But I love it

Oh my goodness! What a divine fragrance! My fiance surprised me with this for my 26th burthday, although he ordered it online and it came a few days before my birthday.

Anyway, I've yearned for this fragrance for so long! In February this year I caught a whiff of it off one of my friends. I asked her what it was and she told me about this. It smelled so yummy, creamy and smooth on her. I read lots of reviews and tried a sample since then. Then a 50 ML bottle came in the mail this morning! I looooove this scent! What can I say! Exclaim exclaim exclaim!

This botle says that it was made in France, not the USA. It seems really strong in a good way and it sticks around, so maybe my fiance found a pre-reformulation bottle by chance. This is heaven. I highly recommend for lovers of Euphoria, Seduction Dark Orchid and the like.

When I first smelled this from the bottle, I was immediately hit with a headache inducing bouquet of citrus, but when applied to skin, it's true colors shine through.
This fragrance takes time to get used to. In its genesis, its citrusy top notes quickly melt away to a spicy floral and towards the afternoon it's warm woody notes close the fragrance in a cozy crescendo. The person who wears this perfume is kind, ironic and a little cold. It's a long hug with a witty remark. It's a refined debutant silently watching the opera from the expensive box seats. I highly recommend this fragrance to anyone looking for a classic and refined olfactory experience, all year round.

Grabbed a sample from Sephora today and I have to admit, it is STRONG. The juice might be pink but instead of a super sweet or floral scent, I was gently punched in the face with a herbal, citrus-y fist that has left me reeling and hurting but also second guessing and re-evaluating my likes in masochistic fashion.

It doesn't start off too bad, it's a tiny bit sweet in the beginning, like biting into a kiwi or a grape. The middle notes however are herbal and citrus and lacking in sugar. It's not a bad thing though, I definitely find it... unique and if I were to smell this on a passing girl in the street I think she'd have quite a nice taste in perfume. At the end, it does fade out to patchouli, at a faint and lightly sweet level nothing that'd evoke gum drops or candy canes but maybe a more residual sweetness from a cup of caramel tea?

I know a lot of people say it's "classy, sexy, sensual, elegant, timeless" etc etc. Is it that? I think I can agree, more or less. I think it's more of an intimate scent, like waking up in bed the morning after and putting on that guy's shirt before yawning and wandering off to wash your face.

I don't know if I'd ever pay for a bottle of it, but I do admit that the bottle itself is very pretty; especially with the pink juice inside. Honestly I'm tempted to buy an empty bottle and fill it with water and red food coloring to use as decoration.

I have purchased this a few times, so there is obviously something I like about it. However my overall thought is that it's too much. Whenever I wear it, my boyfriend and mother complain about how strong it is. They can smell it all over the house when I spritz myself in my bedroom! It makes me sneeze too :)

There are some lovely notes in there but I do find the top notes too overpowering. I don't think I will buy it again. I've had a bottle on my dresser for a while now, it's taken me a long time to finish!

What I Love & Crazy About This Perfume.

1) Thank God for the masculine vibe
in this that I can easily wear it.

2) Good longevity & projection even
after reformulation. CM still the
best.

When I first bought it 50ml bottle on May this year. I was really excited because this perfume really had a very good reputation & its one of the best perfume on earth I must say.

But and then I started to read comments about how this perfume have changed and damaged because of the reformulation. I was quiet upset because I too can smells the differences. Well,not until this month.

Last month, I'm taking holiday from this perfume & since I have other perfumes in my collections so yeah I do my rotations as usual but when it comes to this perfume, I skip it for about a month.

Not until last week, I pick this one and take it out from its box (I still have the box coz its my first CHANEL perfumes) and squirt like 5 times thinking about the reformulation that damage the longevity & projection, so I tell myself to squirt more.

Holy Shit !!! this perfume is really potent than I remember that my nose almost have disability to smell things. It don't sit quiet for the whole day my god, the projection is crazy.

That's it !!! Hands down for this perfume. Officially my holy grail perfumes, back on the top of my perfume rotation list. It's no.1 now and yes, no more doubt or reconsidering if I finish my 50ml bottle. I'm just going withdrawy money and heading straight to Chanel and buy the 100ml cause it worths every penny. It deliver what it promise, the best & the most popular perfumes in the world.

It's CHANEL !

Had this a while ago. Well, it's not offensive and the bottle is eye candy, really!
But it's mostly screechy patchouli plus sharp citruses- just as in allure sensuelle and chance. The drydown does hold some pleasent surprises, a non-sweet vanilla and lemon peels, some vetiver and leather...

It's not bad, but it's not ... you expect something much better from a bottle as beautiful as this. I got tired of it after few wears.

Quite safe for a gift though.

This perfume is so pretty and classic. I just recently was able to appreciate it. It smells kind of spicy/musky to me. It is a sophisticated, sexy scent for serious fragrance wearers. If you are new to fragrance wearing or too young you may not appreciate this yet. Don't be fooled by the power of the fragrance when you first put it on because it settles very nicely and lasts for about 6 hours. Every time I wear it I receive compliments. If this scent is too strong another great scent, which is similar to this one, to start out with is Miss Dior (formally Miss Cherie Dior). This is another sexy and sophisticated scent but its not as overwhelming as Chanel Coco mademoiselle. I get compliments literally every time I wear that one too! Love them both but the Chanel lasts a bit longer.

Easily one of the most effortlessly likeable, inherently pretty, wearable in any season for casual or formal, modern classic fragrances. Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum is a Chypre Floral, crafted by nose Jacques Polge. On my skin, CM always wears predictably, opening with fruity fresh notes of orange, bergamot & orange blossom, settling into a heart of ylang-ylang, mimosa & jasmine, with a rich lingering base of patchouli, vetiver, tonka bean, vanilla & soft musk. Coco Mademoiselle, even with the obvious recent reformulation, has moderate projection & wear time, leaving a most pleasing trail. "Miss Popular," since her introduction in 2001, Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum belongs in every woman's collection. Oh, and that bottle! Absolutely gorgeous.

I agree with Violetta, I think that many people buy it from doubtful sources and then they blame 'reformulation'.
However, I also have a feeling that now it smells a bit differently than many years ago. Still, it is very classy and charming fragrance. Now it is just more 'clean' than it used to be.
People, just don't buy crap at one third of a real price. It is not worth! Fake is not Coco Mademoiselle.

Despite what people say about the reformulation, I can smell the quality in this and think it's beautifully composed. It smells classy and a little badass. This smells like a woman, not a girl, but a grown, sexy woman. It's very strong and long lasting.

I know I'm a minority but my favorite way to wear this one is in warmer weather. For me it's a great casual, summery, night perfume when sprayed lightly. But I could see this being worn any time of year, and for just about any occasion. It's extremely versatile.

I have a tendency to overspray, and that's a big no-no with this one. It definitely does smell a little masculine when you wear too much, because it smells so strong and fresh. One day I went to spray it on and thought I missed when I didn't, so I sprayed extra. Mistake. It was way too strong, even for me. When I went out about an hour later, someone noted that I smelled like Rico Suave and I wasn't even mad.

As a sidenote, the bottle is gorgeous. Probably the prettiest in my collection.

I must say I have been very disappointed with Chanel lately. I was not aware that now the perfumes are made in the USA. I have noticed quite a difference in the fragrances lately. They don't last as long, they don't smell quite the same to me. It's almost like watery down. HOWEVER, this scent on my skin is absolutely gorgeous. I get nothing citric about it. Instead, I get a chic warm and cozy scent to be used in colder days and a fresh, delicate scent for all year around. I had this for my wedding and I received so many compliments. My bottle was a Made in France one... I just got another bottle today... Made in the USA...ugh! I bet it will last 3 hours and fade away.I dislike the EDT very much. It screams on my skin, it's so irritant...

As the result on me this rose and orange fragrance on patchouli base opens like John Varvatos, but I prefer the last one, because it has more charming fruity composition: plums, apricots, mandarins, and besides mango blossom and lillies. Coco Mademoiselle notes composition for me is less interesting. But if ends my John Varvatos, maybe I would buy this one. And I don't like to wear popular fragrances, while this one are on many ladies. I prefer something more unique.

Actually, I prefer classic Coco edp to this one, because it's more classy, complex and has a French charm.

CM has a beautiful modern building, met him in a big store ... beautiful, selling Chanel in city, went straight on it and Coco Chanel, he has a delicious freshness on my skin, is iced, I love that effect on him should be its oranges, fixed and design pretty cool, but not up to the club, does not stand out, only smell you very close, or you break a 100ml bottle on the head, but during the day it's fabulous exhale, fixed speaks .... Good for Romantic encounters, to charm, seduce not ... the price is salty, but worth it, because even with many similar always say that the original is a unique experience, do not be fooled performance is another. Yes !! VALLEY On comparisons with Miss Dior stay with Miss, you have a slight remembrance of each other but are not alike ever! I have a few moments with him no recollection yet, I'll build our relationship !!!

Patchouli delight, so lovely! It's not something really interesting though, not special and unheard of but if you are fan of this type of citrusy sweetness, you would immediately want a bottle. I look at it as an everyday fragrance but it could also fit formal occasions very well. The dry down reminds me of Shalimar.
Goes on the wishlist.

Chanel Mademoiselle is a delicious yellow floral fragrance. It's a spring/summer fragrance but it's appropriate for everyday casual wear. The sweetness comes from it's citrus notes. I normally stay away from perfumes with citrus but the aldehydes in this one keep it from being too pungent. It's warm and very very "yellow". My nose immediately picked up on the yellow flower in it: mimosa. This is a lovely mimosa perfume. There is also a rose and it was a pleasant surprise hidden in there like a nicely wrapped up bouquet. Chanel is absolute class but this feels accessible and approachable, casual. I would have to say that although you can wear this to the office, to wherever you work, wear this lightly as a skin scent and don't douse yourself with it. If it's too strong it might turn formal and would suit an evening affair: dinner, a date, a night out at the theater, etc. This is lovely. I would not classify this perfume as a "young woman's "perfume. This can be worn by any woman of any age who adores roses and mimosa like I do. For me, it's strictly a floral fragrance.

"Coco Mademoiselle - the most loved and appreciated fragrance of the 21st century" - that's what I've overheard. As a 21st century girl, I feel I should try it too.

I have always hesitated to even try Coco Mademoiselle because I feel that I would be mainstream. I was wrong. "Who else in the age of seventeen would wear Coco Mademoiselle anyway," I thought to myself. Believe me, I have always loved it on myself whenever I tried it. It's like all my favourite notes just united in a beautifully simple bottle.

Speaking of the bottle, the classic and iconic Chanel bottle in which the stopper has been frosted - a beautiful sight to behold. Chanel fragrances have been very important in our family. Generations own them. Owning a bottle of Coco Mademoiselle is a precious privilege for me.

I believe the scent embodies the spirit of young Coco Chanel - my icon and inspiration. The notes of Mademoiselle are also worthy of being housed at the iconic bottle too. Coco Mademoiselle is that beautiful. It is a refreshing oriental scent from the house. The journey begins with a beautiful introduction of traditional Chanel citrus fruits and blossoms. After their time is up, they sit back, giving way to the delicate floral middle notes - a classic duo of rose and jasmine, with whiffs of mimosa, ylang-ylang and a fruity note which I guess is the lychee (it is mentioned on the Chanel website although it is not listed here). Then, the majestic and most awaited part of Chanel fragrances - the base notes start to steal the spotlight. The smooth patchouli that Chanel uses in their fragrances takes the spotlight. Alongside, opoponax, musks, vanilla, tonka bean and vetiver stand by the patchouli to enhance the beauty of Coco Mademoiselle. Patchouli is omnipresent. Overall, Coco Mademoiselle is a light oriental, very comforting and expensive smelling composition. If there is one word that can describe it, it will be 'perfection'.

Coco Mademoiselle, being a light oriental chypre, it is very versatile and long-lasting with moderate sillage. I don't care about the reformulation whatsoever.

To end this kind of long review, I would like to conclude by praising the creator of this scent for making a beautiful scent. I, as well as thousands of other women love this and it's no wonder that so many love it. Thanks to Mr. Jacques Polge, the creator of this scent, the legacy of Chanel will live forever and beyond.

I remember perfectly the first time I wore this perfume. In fact, there are many firsts associated with Coco Mademoiselle. It was my first year in college, my first college friend, and our first night out downtown. We decided to congratulate ourselves on our commencement at university and booked a table at a posh restaurant in the city. Getting ready to go out, I sneaked into my mother's closet like a 5 year old girl up to no good and gently sprayed the contents of the coveted flacon onto my decolletage. From that moment, that night has been forever etched into my memory. It completely transformed me from a lowly college student into an elegant woman waiting for her friend at a dim lit downtown restaurant. It affected everything I did that night, from my posture to my tone of voice to the way I walked. I had become an elegant and refined lady.
Subsequently, the more often I wore it, the more I got used to it and became myself again. Nevertheless, every time I spray it, I remember that night and the elegance I associated with this perfume.
It is the perfect fragrance. So very versatile - oriental but fresh - it is appropriate for daytime as well as evening and is universally pleasant. Also, it ALWAYS brings in compliments from men.

I received the EDT as a gift 12 years ago or approximately and i think i was to young to really appreciate the beauty and complexity of Chanel. I didn't wear it and, sadly, i ended up wasting an almost full expensive bottle. This morning i gave it another shot knowing my personal baggage and knowledge about fragrances. I found out that i still don't really like the EDT but LOVE the EDP ! They evolves very differently on the skin. The EDP has that amazing lasting power, that warm, sensual and calming scent that makes me say : Hummmmmm. The EDT is more sharp, pungent, citrusy and light on me but it is understandable because there is so many notes missing in the EDT like the ylang ylang, mimosa and opoponax. The popularity of a fragrance doesn't bother me when i love one so i will have to had this masterpiece to my collection soon. It is certainly better late than not at all ! =)

It starts of with very strong and potent sharp citrus. But as it starts to settle on my skin it emerges into a mouth watering citrus punch. But patchouli adds a touch of freshness and keeps it from being sugary. This is sparkling citrus punch that I adore and can't get enough of. It's fun and happy but not stupid, a little bit sexy but not seductive. Super wearable, absolutely not offensive, this is a great everyday perfume that will go well with any occasion.

On reformulation.

I own pre-reformulation EDP (and Parfum).
I tried the new EDP and EDT.
I've never tried EDT before, so I don't know about EDT, but EDP is significantly lighter.

I was surprised by the top even though my nose was ready for difference.
It's much more citrusy.

On my skin, it quickly changed to Coco Mademoiselle (thank God!) but it is VERY light and kinda thin. It feels like Skinny Coco Mademoiselle. Not surprisingly, it didn't last as long as the old one.

I'm still resentful towards Chanel for killing the original No.5 Eau Premiere (haha...).
New CM is, however, still CM and I guess some might prefer the new, like I prefer the current Poison by CD to the monstrously potent original.

This is my all time favorite perfume. Many people say it smells similar to miss Dior but to me they smell very different. CM is more complex and more crisp while miss Dior is sweeter and warmer. At least to me.

I don't save it for special occasions as I believe life is short and we must enjoy the beautiful perfumes we have as much as we can, but when I wear this, I can't help but match it with a beautiful dress, even if it's a dreary Monday and I'm just going to work!

I have to confess I have a sort of love-hate relationship with this perfume. It have a really detergent-y smell alongside a hint of citrus. A pleasant smell. However,there are so many women in this world have great taste like I do. Therefore,the perfume became so ordinary, that my friends will be like'coco mademoiselle again,duh' The freshness just isn't there anymore.

Sorry, but this smells like a cheap floral mixed with shampoo on me. It reminds me of the cheap stuff the "bad girls" at school would douse themselves in to cover up the smell of their cigarettes when they left the girls' bathroom. There's definitely something ashy in the base notes. Maybe that's just my chemistry, though.

waiting for this one in the mail atm, I used to not like it much, but lately im craving it, my most complimented perfume of all and I have many, the pure parfum is also out of this world, another thing ladies once u try the chanel parfums youll never go back to other concentrations, little pricey but worth it, imagine yr fav scent richer and more creamier, only exception is No.5 which I prefer in edt form cos I luv the sparkly aldehydes

Hi..Im from Indonesia. I bought this after i read all refrence. But to me it doesn't work.
Its too strong and maskulin for me and i plan to give it to my husband.
I already have channel no. 5 also and it too strong to and old for me...so i think it doesn't suit for my nose.
May be because i live in humid and hot environment so it doesn't smell like other people in other country.
Thank you.

This scent has a life of its own, it creates a delightful environment! Sweet and alluring.

Patchouli plays a significant part, so Coco Mademoiselle always reminds me of that scene from the first episode of Satc when voice-over Carrie says:

"Suddenly, I felt like I was wearing patchouli in a room full of Chanel".

Well...when Chanel team up with patchouli the result is great! And I normally dislike patchouli so this is a first for me!

Gave this a try a few weeks ago and hated it, gave me headaches. But gave in a bought a bottle and I must say I'm loving this. For a fragrance called Mademoiselle it's light pink juice is misleading, cause this Mademoiselle is far from light and girly, she is strong, independent and dare I say a little in your face.

This is in my top two favorite fragrances that my nose has ever had the pleasure of smelling! It is so feminine, and makes me feel more professional and powerful when I wear it. It may be too mature for a young girl, but a great perfume for an adult of any age. I also feel this is appropriate for any time of day and any season of the year. The lasting power is probably the best of any of the fragrances that I have. It is one that I can detect on myself throughout the day without having to try.

Too expensive but, hands down, the best fragrance I have ever had the pleasure to smell. I tried the whole store, I am not a perfumes person, but I am completely in love with this fragrance and I know it is going to be my signature smell as soon as I get paid this month. Briliant. Worth the money and the hype. So in love...

I will edit this later to discuss the notes once I get to know her a little better.

This one conjures images of a sweet young lady. A mademoiselle if I must say so myself. She's kind, pretty, genuine, polite. The kind of gal that would feed your pets when you're out of town, and bring you soup when you're sick. She smells as sweet as she is.

She doesn't leave after 5-10 minutes either! She sticks around and calms the soul.

I received a sample of this back in 2002 or so..? I thought it smell like rich people. Expensive and sophisticated, and far beyond what my humble existence could appreciate. I remembered it lasted forever on me even after a night of partying in sweaty clubs. I love the patchouli in this (I love patchouli in anything). It also smells sweet but not overly so. I have wanted to own a full sized bottle for so long and the opportunity came this week but it didn't smell like I remembered. It's lost it's luster somehow and it smells like the duty free as someone put it. It really does smell expensive and all that but the wow factor is gone. I opted for a .5 ml perfume oil of it for $5. I think I've been cured of my lust over this perfume.
I paired it with Nude by Rihanna and wow, just wow. The two together smell delicious!

sexy, grapefruity floral with a jasmine/musk base that lasts for EVER! I can put this on at 8am and at 9pm my husband will still smell my neck and say mmmmmmmmmm! The EDT can't hold a candle to the EDP - totally different notes. The EDT is too fruity with no depth. The EDP has the strong middle and basenotes to keep it from smelling like a one note wonder.

Coco mademoiselle by Chanel is one of the two fragrances that I wanted to own since I was a teen . My mother had a very stylish, modern and classy friend who was very wealthy and she was wearing this perfume most of the time. I finally purchased a bottle, I do not love it as much as I used to but it is still definitely in my top 5

Bright, happy and fresh with just the right amount of sweet to it! This is a perfume for the good days. I mostly get clean patchouli, juicy orange and rose (wish I got more of that vanilla and tonka). Nothing too sexy, it is feminine, pretty yet sort of reserved. This perfume has massive appeal and it is completely understandable since it ticks all the right boxes. The staying power and projection is definitely better than most designer scents that share the same vibe. I don't reach for my bottle of Coco Mademoiselle every day, but I know for a fact that this shall always be in my collection. Definitely a modern classic.

I purchased this perfume a blind buy, like all my other perfumes. And I was rather disappointed. Don't get me wrong I love the dry down of the perfume, but the bergamot is just way to over whelming and I don't like that. I would probably wear this fragrance to a special occasion, because it is a sophisticated luxury scent.

It's very nice and elegant, but I honestly don't know what most of the notes are so I'm just sorta guessing when describing it!

I smell mostly jasmine and rose with something citrus-y, probably the orange and bergamot notes?
It is strong(Maybe the Patchouli or Opoponax?) and a bit musky but still sweet enough to suit someone who is about 16 to 20 years old without smelling too mature.
My mom said it reminds her of juicy fruit gum. I usually like extremely sugary sweet scents, but I really like Coco Mademoiselle.
It lasts a very long time, I once sprayed it on, had a shower, went to sleep, and woke up still able to smell it about 14 hours later.

I bought a tester vial of this. I thought this might make a good, "safe" introduction to the Chanel perfume line.
When I first sprayed this the vial attacked me, leaking all over my hand with only a little going on the back of my neck (where I usually spray). The smell that emanated from it was so strong and sharp, I got an instant headache with dizziness and slight nausea (like I said, it attacked me). I tried to wash it off my hand, but to no avail. It was determined to assault my senses. This was at night and all the next day I wasn't feeling well at all and I kept getting whiffs something that could almost be pleasant (kind of soapy), but just wasn't at the time.
It finally dissipated that night and I decided to give myself a break from perfume for a day or two.

After a couple days I decided to give it a second chance. So I very carefully spritzed some on one night (once very lightly).
This time it didn't leak (thank goodness!) and I was able to "study" it a bit better.
I'm no pro at picking out notes, but at first I got an almost dirty (probably from the patchouli) citrusy scent. Quite strong and pungent. But it eventually settled down to a nicer soapy citrusy with only a touch of "dirtiness". It is actually rather nice (in very very small doses); I could swear that I've smelled this somewhere before, not sure where. I don't think I'd ever want to spend $100+ for it, though. I figure if I ever get a hankering for it in the future, I would probably just get another sample.

I don't love this fragrance, but I really REALLY like it and am strangely drawn to it. It runs similar to Chance for me, fresh, clean, delicate white flowers - I dare say I even find it a little generic. I think that's why I can't love it, it does nothing special for me, I feel that I've smelled similar fragrances. But it is oddly comforting and out of all those generics I keep returning to this one over others. The one thing I do love is the dry down after about 3 hours. Feathery vanilla that I like to keep smelling on my wrist.
I wouldn't mind owning it, but it's not at the top of my list.

This is my signature scent so this is my disclaimer because the bias is about to get real.

There is an interesting amount of hate for this fragrance. One of the complaints I've read a lot is that its SO DAMN POPULAR that EVERYONE WEARS IT....so my question to those people is, would you like a fragrance to be:

1- Very popular which leads to said House of Parfums to NOT discontinue said fragrance because it sells well and its obviously something that women want to wear.

2- Mildly popular were is not doing bad but not doing as great as other well known fragrances but its a bit harder to find someone else wearing it.

3- Not that popular, its like your secret scent that nobody has smelled before therefor you feel ultra special and sneaky because you have something else that nobody else has.

I'll tell you something I would rather have something from the legendary house that is Chanel knowing that they will continue to produce and treat this fragrance with respect instead of discontinuing it down the line.

This is also my problems with celebrity fragrances, like their marriages they never last (POINTS TO YOU IF YOU GOT THAT SHREK REFRENCE). They usually fall in the #2 range, now I know CM falls under the #1 category but I really don't mind because at least they don't reformulate as bad as Dior does.

My problems with Dior is that apparently they reformulate like crazy is getting ridiculous to imagine which formulation are they going to finally stick with.

Now I think you guys have been giving my beloved CM some bad feedback and I don't think it deserves a lot of it.

For example if the EDP gives you a headache than maybe your a EDT kinda person....or try some Chanel Chance. If you fell like it disappears on your skin try the PARFUM instead of the EDP.

But hating on it because its popular its really stupid. Its not like hating a celebrity for being popular because lets be honest Kim is famous for what again? CM is just a perfume. It's beloved for its amazing composition and ridiculous ability to make women feel not only in control but ready to take on the day.

Chanel #5 probably had its haters too but its still one of the most known fragrance in the world and there's nothing it's haters can do to change that.

I love that CM is so popular because it does smell different on different people but I really hope that within Coco's line of parfums this one stays up there as one for my generation of women.

Now a little back story on how I came to this fragrance. When it came out I smelled it in a magazine at the Salon while I was getting my hair done. As soon as I smelled it I knew I needed it in my life but I was really little at the time and I couldn't afford to buy anything from Chanel but I promised myself that one day I would have it.

Fast forward a few years and then Keira Knightley signed to be the face of CM and I remember going on the Chanel website and watching the AD over and over laughing at how much I wanted to have that life of just walking out into a street in Paris with a gorgeous dress on about to do some mischief and coming in my apartment the next day through the window like a cat that I am.

Keira also happens to be my favorite actress so watching the evolution through the ads over the years have been awesome and inspiring.

So at this point of the story I really needed to get my hands on a bottle of this so I start saving up and I bought the 1.7 oz at Sephora. I proudly went up grabbed a bottle from the shelf and went straight to the counter.

The reason why I love this scent is because I feel like it describes me perfectly, its a multitasker, it can be sexy but appropriate for work, it can be casual but appropriate for night, it can wake you up in the morning and refresh you with that hint of Jasmine during the day, it has this almost powdery smell about it as if like the bottle cap itself the scent is matte, it sweet but masculine and strong but gentle after it warms up a bit. It last ALL DAY on me sometimes I can still smell it in the morning the next day.

It's everything I want in a fragrance.

I completely adore this scent, its my signature and I plan on wearing it until my last day.

I'm afraid I agree with mystica. I really dislike this scent. I have no idea why it is so popular, and I smell it on so many people. I have a colleague who wears this, but it always smells 'apart' from her, not part of her. Its cold and uninviting and it gives me a headache. She is such a lovely woman, I wish she would wear something which suited her better.

I'm not into Coco Mademoiselle or Chanel #5 or any other fragrances that are similar. They smell to me like sharp patchouli peppery citrusy soap detergent that I find to be neither comforting or sexy and I have TRIED over and over to wear these long enough to the drydown in order to give a proper review.

Why would women feel the need to buy perfumes to smell like a "woman"? We already smell like women because we ARE women, one of the best things about perfume is that it's allowing us to smell like things we don't already smell like...a fantasy to wrap yourself in that expresses the mood you're in that day.

I do understand and greatly respect that the Chanel line boasts the invention of the floral-aldehyde group by creating the detergent smelling note that was before that completely unheard of as well as the whole Marilyn Monroe thing. That being said I feel like the general idea ingrained in our heads is that everyone is SUPPOSED to like it and feel classy wearing it because they are told to despite the fact that if it didn't have that Chanel logo I can't see it being popular. I ESPECIALLY believe that now when the current craze is all about sugary fragrances.

That doesn't make me feel classy, it makes me feel like a sheep.

On a recent trip overseas, I chose to take my purse spray of this to remind me of my husband who had chosen this for me, but could not accompany me.

I loved using it not only for the above purpose but because in a strange house I could spray it on my pillow and get a good night's sleep. Silly me forgot to do this in the hotel for my last night and failed to sleep. Now home with my dearest man at last.

Chanel – Coco Mademoiselle - 05/19/2015

"Coco Mademoiselle" has nothing to do with the original Coco (which, in my view is a masterpiece.)

"Coco Mademoiselle" starts with a sharp oriental woody patchouli note which, combined with a sugary tart berry note, create an effect that should be enjoyable however, somehow isn’t. Instead, it creates a rather unpleasant feel of a moldy, plastic mess.

I cannot put my finger on what the problematic combination might be… maybe, there are too many notes altogether which eventually do not blend that well… Aldehydes, vanilla, rose, jasmine, ylang, something fresh and green, lemons, musk…

Once you get passed the first hour, the perfume transforms into a pleasant green, fresh, citrusy scent but, I still get this feeling that it is made for people who are unable to appreciate Chanel. It is not well rounded and I feel there is no craft in this creation.

Nevertheless, it is a very cleverly marketed scent aiming towards teenage girls who are raving about it (Coco Mademoiselle could be their adolescent entrance into haute perfumerie.) It offers some of the same fruity-candy and somewhat modern-chypre appeal as many teen-targeted celebrity scents, but it’s significantly less crude than most.

The longevity is not good. It completely disappears after 2 hours.

I’m not convinced it belongs in the Chanel lineup.
I don’t think that Coco herself would have ever created something like this.

Enjoy the perfume quest
Regards
Josephine

There is something so cold, stern, and pushy about this fragrance.

It smells luxurious, but in a so snoby distant kinda way, and contradictorily it's such a popular scent.

Bergamot in it is so headache inducing, and overall the scent has a metallic feel to it. So sharp, so enveloping, but not in a pleasant way which makes it rather suffocating then.

Even thinking about gives me headaches...

CM is such a Perfume, Perfume and Perfume. But all this "glamour" doesn't make it any "good".

This is such a miscellaneous beast indeed, and at the same time such an over-identified scent. This contradiction about it is a killer.

I am dead.

I fervently hate CM.

I ADORE this scent. It is without a doubt a Classy yet Sexy, beautiful, Sparkling Bright fragrance. I agree any age could wear this scent as well. My only problem, completely cancels out what people are saying about it being long lasting! I fid it light and fleeting very quickly!
I do think that this is only with the current bottles they're manufacturing. I've heard the older ones were much stronger and the newer ones seem VERY watered down.
"It's always the successful companies that try ad get you hooked and then sneak in more and more profit for themselves, Billions of dollars aren't enough for them!" "The more money you make, it seems, the greedier people get".
So because of this, I sold my bottle :( A scent that I can't smell on myself mins later does't justify $100 a bottle.
Does anyone else notice this? The watered down perfume?

I had this 6 years ago along with my beloved MDC. I bought because many have said that very similar to MDC. Well I didn't like opening, mid note and way too strong.... I only used 3 times trying to like it but I couldn't take it and sold it. I just card sample and tried without hope..... WOW!!!! Totally love it!! I don't know what changed but more lighter and sweeter and so pretty!! I'm die hard Dior girl and after MDC discontinued I got New MD EDT and this is my new love but I need to have CM as well!! I was going to get MD EDP but maybe I should get bottle of CM.

Now please don't suggest I begin therapy or roll your eyes at one another signifying that I'm nutso but bear with me and my little story if you will.
My mother, still alive and doing great, is my best friend. She is an amazing woman who can dig in the dirt one hour and then be dressed and ready for the opera in the next. She taught me to love and respect fragrances from the start and knows a great deal about them not only from trying so many but also because she is a lavender farmer and oil distiller.
I have a crappy genetic disease that wreaks havoc on my not yet middle aged body and most recently have endured nine hip surgeries in 2 years. Because of my immobility, my once never weight troubled body has gained 40 pounds. My mom has stood by me through everything I've dealt with and encourages me, shows me the bright side of life and inspires me to be my best each and every day. On a recent visit to my house (she sadly lives two states away) she bought this magnificent Coco Mademoiselle. We both agreed that it was so meant for her, it's almost like she was born smelling this way naturally!
Well, a month later, I joined weight watchers (ugh) which happens to be right next door to Sephora. I visited the WW office for the first time on Monday when there was no meeting going on just to get my feet wet. I've dreaded actually going to a meeting. Afterwards, I went to Sephora, of course, and when I spritzed this exquisite fragrance on a card, it literally took my breath away, in a good way! It was as if my mother was standing there with me. Of course I asked for a sample to take home and treasure.
But I did one better than that! I made myself a deal that if I forced myself to attend a WW meeting, I could treat myself to a small bottle of this heavenly scent. Today, I DID IT! I went to a meeting, learned I've already lost seven pounds AND I walked right out, with a huge smile on my face and bought this, my mothers scent in a bottle! I have no regrets and never will. It is so richly concocted. It is fresh and vibrant, elegant yet wearable. For me, it's such a win because it works with my skin (perhaps it's an "Apple doesn't fall far from the tree" thing, lol!) yet it is slightly different than on my mom. But, a beautiful scent so many around me love and an across the distance hug from my dear mother. I couldn't ask for more. ❤️❤️ [Now I just have to keep this fume reward thing from becoming a habit with each weight loss victory.....or do I??? ;-)]

I love Chanel perfumes and this one I bought because it is light enough for me to wear during the Summer months, I save No. 5 and Coco for the cooler months. This is an elegant perfume and I always get a ton of compliments when I wear it. Chanel perfume has great longevity and silleage but this is never overpowering...it's sophisticated and perfect choice for any age (teens to mature adult)Don't be afraid to buy this, you will not regret it. I wear it anytime I want to feel pretty.

It was love at the first sniff. Than I changed my mind and was a bit sceptical towards this scent. Was it too heavy? Does it smell a bit like DKNY Paris?
Than I got it for Christmas and I fall in love again.
It is so sophisticated and I smell a hint of wood (weird?) in this scent.
If you want to feel like a lady, free at the same time and if you have enought money, than dont hesitate to purchase.

This want get much balloons I'm afraid :)
And it was not supposed to be mailed by Guest ...
I bought this being stalked by reviews and commercials etc.... and I am very disappointed.
I must admit that I smelled a lot of niche perfumes at the same time but couldn't decide, it takes some time to get to know the niche scents and I wanted an every day, suitable scent for meetings and work. So I bought Coco Mademoiselle.

To me it is a smell like there are hundreds, I know they claim it to be very special being chypre-floral but it could as well be a scent in the rang of Yves Rocher, you just don't notice it.

I immediately realised when I first used it that I've smelt this lot of times before and it never gave me the impression of My god, what is that smell.
I'll use it anyway but I don't think I will make a statement wearing this.

I'm wearing EDT on my left and EDP on my right hand right now, EDT is more green and sweeter, but definitely lighter. EDP is spicer, warmer and more "a lot of things are going on". I found EDT more wearable since it's simple and fresh (compare to EDP). The EDT used to stay 2 weeks on my scarf, but now even EDP lasts no more than 2 days, I got them in Sephora, I don't know if they are reformulated or what....

This is my first review of a women's scent, well, sorta.
I'm a man and have been into fragrances since 2009.

I can't tell you about its individual notes, it's longevity, projection or its nuances.

I can tell you though that within the last few years of my growing interest in scents has given me the nerve/motivation to ask women what perfume they are wearing.

On two or three occasions I have been so enthralled by a particular fragrance that I had no hesitation in asking what they were wearing.

Those memorable moments the ladies have answered Coco's Mademoiselle!

Great attention getter.

I have about 30 bottles of perfume and this one is my hubby's favorite, I bought a 50ml for myself and he bought me a big bottle before I finished the first one. I also had a EDT of this which I actually like better since that one is fresher. I can see why many people are comparing it to Miss Dior, but I personally prefer this one because it's not as sweet as Miss Dior. The only downside of this perfume is that IT'S EVERYWHERE, EVERYONE HAS IT! Go for it if you don't mind smelling it everywhere on everyone.

Used this perfume once about 5 years ago. Very elegant, sophisticated & lasts really, really, really looooong. It screams powerful, independent & sassy. You'll get compliments like you won't believe! One must go easy on it though as it is very strong and overpowering.

I don't know what it is about Chanel fragrances for me, but they all end up being so similar! This one is almost indistinguishable on me from Chance and Coco Noir. I sometimes get a blast of something fruity at the beginning of this one (pear, maybe?) but then it's shaving cream all the way through. I don't get florals from it. For gorgeous Chanel flowers, I like Coco EdP, the drydown of no 5 or Eau Premiere, or no 19 poudre!

The thing about anything that becomes extremely popular is that because of its popularity, it's likely to be adopted by someone (or many someones!) you dislike, and I think that phenomenon has contributed to people putting this scent down.
I certainly ignored it for a long time because I tend to ignore most fragrances that sales associates push because they're "popular," maybe because I'm no stranger to spite. But the question with perfume shouldn't be who is or isn't wearing it, it should be: how does it smell? If you like bright, juicy orange/citrus and patchouli, then this is a great scent, especially in its sparkly early stages. It does go though a distinctly cologne-y phase that some here have likened (not unfairly) to aftershave, and I don't like that phase as much as the opening.

This scent can be ruined by overspraying because it has a lot of sillage-that patchouli sure can throw!- which definitely could contribute to people resenting this scent, as I imagine it could be lethal on a heavy-handed teenager or smoker. It also tends to linger-on hair, clothes, furniture. But applied sparingly, I can see why this is so beloved.

And the bottle-especially the smaller edp- is great.

Chanel Coco Mademoiselle used to be my signature scent for a few years. I always got it as a present from my boyfriend at the time. Before I started really thinking about it and before I got curious about what other perfumes existed out there, out of laziness I stuck with this one.

It is very recognizable, it smells nice to most people and it lasts forever on me. And you can get it everywhere. A true crowdpleaser, but that's exactly the problem.

When I moved back to Eastern Europe. Every other woman to enter my office wore this, you could smell it in the streets everywhere, it was ubiquitous or maybe it was just that strong - it tends to linger- or it was copied so much... Who knows. But it is, to this day, absolutely everywhere.
When I wore it to work once, my collegue approached me just to tell me he could smell my perfume on the staircase hours after I went by. He meant it as a compliment and asked for the name of the perfume, so he could get it for his fiance. There, I thought, about time to switch things up! So I did and I never used it again.

The only thing I miss about it? The practical purse spray version was a godsent and I wish more perfumes came in such handy sensible travel-positive portions. Most refillable purse sprays look as atrocious as they are impractical.

This is the 3rd day I wear CM. Bought it exclusively at Chanel counter to make sure I get the original and not the counterfeit one.Its June 2014 batch.

I must say CM has totally lost its beauty now. I spray it on my skin only last for 1 hour and its gone, spray it on my shirt hoping it will last more. Nope its just the same.It smells really flat now.

I have a couple of celebrities perfume, they last and project more better, waayyy better than CM.Not really worth it. Urghh ! I could have bought two 100ml bottles of celebrity perfumes with the price of 1 bottle of CM.

There it goes to trash my effort of saving to buy CM only to experienced this no projection,no lasting power and flat scent by world known Chanel.

Beautiful & Gorgeous Scent. Its a must have perfume. Bought it last night, but all I can say its really watered down now, it doesn't project much. Blame the reformulation.

But still I like it, coz the headache medicinal thick patchouli scent is toned down too but the problem is the same thing happen to the lasting power. Toned down.

Projection = Bad
Lasting Power = Bad

Fruity florals are my least favorite perfume category and Coco M is a fruity floral. I don't get chypre anywhere in this. So it is an FF to me in all ways but meticulously done and very different from the all the rest. Mademoiselle is classy, soft, high quality unlike the billion other overly synthetic, boring, sweet, teeny-bop tutti fruity punches my nose is tired of being assaulted by. I apologize for my loathing, but all except this one remind me of the baby girl 'fumes of the 70's my mother bought for me, only worse with less longevity. This is the only one I find tolerable of the hundreds I have smelled.

Still, I just cannot get into it. It's pretty. I like it, but expected a real vah-vah-voom from Chanel and it's just not happening for me. The opening is something to only endure until the exquisitely soft, rosey vanilla musk dry down at the very end. Oh, if this would only open with the dry down and continue to richen up a bit. I believe a fine sandalwood would have done the trick and made this fragrance a true "It Girl" for me. I am so sorry for myself this does not have the depth and richness I need and love so much, especially for the price.

On the up side, this is The Best fruity floral I have ever smelled. I wish all the rest of those watered down, synthetic, unoriginal thousands of smell-alikes would just die already. In my humble opinion, Coco Mademoiselle is The ONLY fruity floral.

I love this scent on my wife. This is a perfect scent to get close and snuggly with on a beautiful moonlit spring night while the soft scents of jasmine and rose surround us.

No need to tamper with perfection but I just layered this with Vanille Abricot by Comptoir Sud Pacifique and it's amazing! It amplifies the vanilla note, gives a new, deeper dimension to the pathchouli+rose+citrus combo and the sugar and fruits bring it into a apricot+rose flavored candy-ish gourmand category.

Just wanted to share!

Beautifully soft, fragrant heaven in a bottle! I get whiffs of bergamot and orange top notes over a primarily rosey heart that takes her time to get down to a gorgeous vanillic-opponax and patchouli base. Mass marketed? Yes, but I understand why. This juice is lovely and melds perfectly with my body chemistry to result in a sweet, soft sensualness that I received loads of compliments on. I haven't had the privilege of sampling the L'extrait or the Parfum (oil) but I imagine they're just as stunning as this gem, if not more so. <3

Sparkling pink champagne spiked with juicy mandarin orange... A rose gold pendant with diamonds coming to life in the sunshine... a sheer, glittering iridescent rosy curtain that opens to reveal a stunningly beautiful woman...
First spritz is all about the top notes listed- mandarin, rose & patchouli become one entity, as described above. My attention is secured, in a nose-glued-to-wrist kind of way.

Having gone to the department store and so purposefully handed over $130 for the large bottle of this (judging by the salesperson's response of "REALLY???", this doesn't happen often in Lower Alabama)... I meant to take in this whole experience, never missing a single nuance.

The introduction is intense and long-lived... celebratory, as if the woman is being welcomed back to the stage after a long hiatus by a standing ovation of admirers. They even rush to the front to offer her giant bouquets of roses.

When the clamor dies down, we are ready to hear her sing, and this is when we are reminded that, beneath all of her physical beauty and the opulence that surrounds her is a warm soul... and a woman who sings that soul.

The heart of Coco Mad brings the warmth... the sweet citrus settles and becomes a warm, vibrating feeling. I imagine this to be a collaboration of bergamot & vetiver, working with the ever-present fresh patchouli to enliven the creamy concoction of orange flower, vanilla and tonka.

This is when we hear her song. It is something hearfelt, a classic that has been heard a million times, but is loved just as dearly each time... a feel-good selection, one that is a safe choice in that it will always be well-received, but no less moving for that fact- "Somewhere Over The Rainbow", maybe? It has been around since the dawn of time, but still has the power to bring even modern-day teenagers to tears... something like that.

She takes her time, too- this is no show to rush. The heart of Coco Mad sings and sparkles and vibrates for hours before beginning to rest. That's it, actually... she does not "fade", she merely "rests"... on a satiny bed of musk and resin.

What a privilege to behold this gorgeous classic bottle of rose gold on my perfume display. I am not a woman to whom $130 comes easily, not for perfume, anyway... I was compelled by a force bigger than me. :)

I bought this perfume Coco Mademoiselle for the very first time. ( Dec 2014)

Believe me. One of the Best Perfumes ever.

I just don't know why people are always asking me "what are you wearing, what is your perfume? you smell so good" then I would just say/ response "thank you"
they are dying to know what's my perfume, then i would just smile.

Earlier March 4 2015, 2 P.M - I rode on a taxi cab " The Driver told me: wow, ooh, you smell good ma'am" I said thank you.

Later then: I was buying some bikinis, the sales personnel said "the moment i entered the establish, she said: woah, ma'am may i ask whats your perfume? because i want to have one?" my reply was: hahaha :) -actually to be honest i am their client for months!

Then I went back to my office: I could still smell my perfume since 11am.

I tell you ladies & gents Coco Mademoiselle is really good, it may be expensive but it's worth it.

I will probably always adore this perfume, I bought it in Paris in 2011 and used to wear it every single day. Sadly, nowadays I settle for a sample of this and spritz every once in a while for nostalgia's sake - for some reason it doesn't smell the same to me (I suspect reformulation?).This does not mean though the overall scent pattern has changed. Its a very recognisable scent, I smelled it on my cousin the other day, it remains a scent you can easily pick out of the crowd of designer smells.

Note that Gris Montaigne by Dior is similar, though it I find it sweeter from the get go. GM is more linear while Coco Mademoiselle starts out fruity-floral fresh and turns into a vanilla dominated scent in the dry down.

I did think for a long time if I should buy this or not. But yesterday I made my decision and I already have this wonderful perfume. Don't regret at all! That Chanel character in it and it's femininity just takes my breath away.. I can understand why this one is so popular, but for me it's not a big deal - I will better be smelling Mademoiselle than other perfumes that I don't like. It's also all seasons and occasions :) Recommend!

I tried this the other day when I was out shopping. Based on the reviews and the notes, I thought I would like it, because I love patchouli.

I didn't get patchouli from this at all. All I got was cloyingly sweet vanilla. With the dry down, some of the florals did come out, but the vanilla was just too much. By hour one, I was smelling like a flowery vanilla ice cream cone. Couldn't wait to get home and wash it off. I will say, that took some doing.

I know that Coco Mademoiselle Chanel is very very popular, and on top of that Keira Nightly rocks it in the ad. In my opinion, it is nice, Chanel never really goes off the road, meaning, all its fragrances are long-lasting and keep its promises. However, I can't really find any other description apart from that nice, Chanel-like. Will I remember how it smells in a couple of weeks?

As one of those warm and fuzzy romantic reviewers its all about what mental/emotional image does this one evoke? And while my words will be useless in deciding to buy, try or pass this is how one man's nose enjoys coco m. A captivating, elegant, pleasant people pleaser scent with very youthful citrusy/floral top notes that surely will get many compliments! I would say much like Bleu de Chanel for men this is as equally versatile for casual wear up to even formal events thanks to the dry down of rose and musk. And also like Bleu this would make a great transition Chanel from "other" young women scents to more slightly darker sophisticated perfumes. At the risk of getting the dreaded rolled eyes coco m simply gives me the mental image of the sparkling newness of love and infatuation all formulated in one pretty in pink bottle by the master blender Polge!

I first encountered this perfume on a perfume strip and the sharp, pungent smell filled my nose immediately. I felt like I was going to get a migraine. This perfume is definitely very powerful, and I completely understand why it easily offends people.

However, when sprayed very lightly, this perfume is magical. I never watched any of the commercials beforehand, but a faint whiff of it transports me to a glamorous hotel in Paris. It smells luxurious, rich, warm, and polished. The hint of masculinity gives it a sense of femme fatale, and wearing it makes me feel womanly, beautiful and confident. I'm definitely not a loud attention seeking individual (though a lot of reviewers think that that's the character that coco mademoiselle embodies), but this is the first time I've ever felt that I've found a perfume that screams ME.

I just wish it's not that overpowering or offensive. But oh, how i love the dry down... I've been sniffing myself in public and I'm certain people must think that I'm strange!

Been thinking about the whole idea that this is too popular... Maybe I'm lucky that I don't live in a big city, bc I have never noticed anyone else wearing this. Tresor, yes, a couple times, but not this.

A lot of people use Ivory soap, does that mean I shouldn't use it? ;)

I adore this fragrance and am torn between enjoying my 2012 bottle as often as possible before it goes off (whenever that is... I do keep it in a dark place) or holding onto it and only using it for special occasions, in case the reformulations never get corrected.

Anyway, going to wear it tomorrow. If not V-day, when? LOL

This is my all time favorite scent.
I will always ADORE this amazing, feminine, elegant, fresh and spicy floral.
One of the best perfumes around, in my opinion, extremely sophisticated and a great compliment getter, men adore this classy scent ;-)
I'm only scared about getting a new bottle - I still have my 2012 bottle and it smells wonderful - because of the reformulation. I tried a tester at Sephora two days ago and it was faint. I don't want a watered down version of this gem!
Why Chanel did you ruin such a modern masterpiece?

EDIT: I wrote an email to Chanel asking if they had reformulated the EDP, they said they had to make a few subtle adaptations due to new IFRA regulations, and they sent me a vial of the new EDP. It was still beautiful and powerful but then I tried again a tester in a Chanel counter and it was faint, clearly weaker. I'm puzzled.. but I know I will never find another scent that I love as much as this beauty.

2°EDIT: I finally bought a new (big!) bottle of EDP: it's still wonderful and the staying power is very good. I layer it with its body lotion and it lasts all day.

GLORIOUS!

At last, in my 34 years old life, i have finally one of this parfum !Well well,there is better out there,but it is quite a refreshing and feminine one i have to admit. I still don't get all the fuss about it, i guess it's in the name CHANEL,otherwise it could be a very forgotten fragrance. Lasting power is also medium.Average overall,prefer ALLURE a thousand times!Still a classic and old timer you might want to add to your expansive perfume collection :)

p.s where is everyone wearing this?I don't smell that!I feel we are actually the original ones by wearing these evergreens...

Coco Mademoiselle was the first expensive perfume I ever bought, at age 17. I was so excited to get a Chanel perfume at that age (which wasn't that long ago despite the way I talk; I just turned 21.) I really did love it. It was luxurious smelling but still youthful. It was all oranges, roses and patchouli, lots and lots of patchouli! I wore it mainly for special or semi-special occasions and always felt chic and fashionable.

Despite loving it as a 17 year old, I can barely stand it now. For one thing, as has been said many times here, it's so darn popular that it's annoying! I imagine it's like Poison was in the 80s (a lot of people to this day can't stand Poison because of the overexposure in the 80s and 90s.) You cannot walk half a block without smelling this on at least one girl. Too much of a good thing--no matter how good--makes that good thing not so good anymore. Even cheeseburgers. I LOVE cheeseburgers but if I had to eat or even smell them all the time, everywhere I go, I'm not gonna love them anymore! It's a fact of life.

The final nail in Coco Mademoiselle's coffin is the ghastly 2014 reformulation. Now, let me say this: I have a two-thirds full bottle of CM from 2011 or so. It's strong stuff. One spray is more than enough (almost overpowering) and it's like super glue on the skin and clothes. It's not going anywhere until you wash it off. That's quality. Like the scent or not, that's QUALITY. Chanel, one of the most prestigious brands ever, brings to mind luxury and fine quality. I mean, if I'm paying the prices they ask for, I better get some good stuff!
The 2014 reformulation is not the standard of quality that is expected of Chanel. It's not the same perfume. I have body sprays from the drugstore that last longer than the new EDP. That is unacceptable and ridiculous. What has happened to Chanel? Lady Coco would be rolling in her grave. Truly sad. And it's not just Coco Mademoiselle; it seems Chanel has reformulated pretty much all of their perfumes and most of them for the worse.

This perfume is gorgeous! I saved up for weeks and weeks to get a bottle of this, and when I finally bought it I felt like I'd won the lottery. Absolutely gorgeous fragrance!
Many people here are calling this an old lady perfume or complaining that it's over used, or that a lot of people wear it. SO WHAT!? It's an AMAZING fragrance of course many people are gonna wear it!
There is alot of debate on this though, you either love it or hate it, at the end of the day it is just a perfume and some of the comments here are kinda outragous considering that it's just a perfume, if you hate it, then cool, no need to BASH on it because some people love it. What if there is a self consious girl that spent ALOT of money buying this and then read the negative comments here and stopped wearing it? Stop bashing on something as simple as perfume, go find something else to do.

I was 17 when I received this perfume as a gift and I can still remember my initial reaction: this is the best perfume in the world, my search is over. I had never encountered something as lovely as Coco M. Breathtakingly feminine, clean and luxurious. It's like covering yourself with the softest, pinkest cashmere in the world. This gem is pure despite the patchouli, sweet but not overwhelming and the citrus is never sharp. Basically it is a masterpiece: so well rounded and beautifully composed. I loved this. So so much. As with most good things in life, this one exploded in popularity and it's hard to walk past any group of 20 something girls and not recognize it. I don't mean this in an obnoxious, I don't like anything mainstream way ( LOL look at my wardrobe!). Since this is so easily detected and so popular these days I can't imagine wearing it anytime soon. Even so, it's a lady like, blissful dream type of scent.

This is the first perfume I have EVER returned. It did not last on me whatsoever, and I believe my Sofia Vergara perfume at $25 performs way better with similar more distinctive notes. It also has far better longevity and sillage. I was not impressed by Coco M. It felt weird to return the perfume I had only bought four hours earlier but I'm glad I did. Not worth the moolah.

to be honest, i always thought i need a bottle of Coco Mademoiselle. I have Coco Chanel and Chance. But I bought it recently, and got a bit disappointed... it's quite weak, you have to respray after 4 hrs of going out if you want it to smell on you... i am quite disappointed but i still like it. it's quite light and refreshing. After a shower or to smell good.

I don't get the hype. I find this very weak, watery, flat and synthetic smelling. If you are a fan of this fragrance then I would suggest trying Suddenly Madame Glamour by Lidl, not much better and a tad more synthetic but a lot stronger anyhow, with the given bonus that its only £3.99.

Chanel Coco Mademoiselle is so insanely popular that pretty much everything has been said about it. It had been on my want list forever and I finally bought a bottle. Putting all the ageism and obnoxious marketing aside that is associated with this fragrance, I must say Coco Mademoiselle is such a beautiful scent. The patchouli in the opening is so luxurious smelling, it is not dirty or earthy like a majority of patchouli centered fragrances. The orange blends perfectly with the patchouli giving it a fresh sweetness that effortlessly softens into a beautiful lush rose. I think Coco Mademoiselle is ultra feminine and can be worn by women of all ages. So lovely!

I consider this fragrance as the proof of my personal development if we talk about the perfumes. First time I smelled it, I didn't like it ( I was used to those cheap,sweet, light mists from drugstore). But the destiny made me give it one more chance, one more again and one more... And every time I tried this perfume, I noticed I'm in a new stage, I can smell the ingredients, I can define the character of the perfume, I am able to "see" its beauty! When I was a student (studying French which is certainly linked with this perfume),I used to go to a glamorous perfume shop and spray this perfume on a paper strip and on my hand. I put that paper strip in my organizer to enjoy the scent a bit longer for I couldn't buy it. I dreamed about it. And recently I bought it. I bought one of my dreams. A truly beautiful fragrance, you only have to grow, to learn and to give yourself the time to appreciate it.

Review for Coco Mademoiselle EDP, current formulation.

Ah, Coco Mademoiselle, the perfect gateway fragrance into the house of Chanel. This perfume really is a modern classic ideal for any lady.

Coco is chic, sweet, refreshing, soft and delicate. I've now smelt many citrus florals, and there's an feeling of elegance, and a 'Chanel touch' or 'je ne sais quoi' to this scent that I really love. It's an extremely pretty perfume.

On my skin, there's lots of flowers and a ladylike sweetness that's tinged with a little freshness. I think the patchouli gives this a bit of body and depth here. Not at all harsh, both the citrus and patchouli are well-behaved, which is unusual for my skin and I really appreciate this here. Sadly, this fragrance is only really a skin scent, with longevity being quite poor (I can only imagine the magnificence that this would have been pre-reformulation). I think I would find myself having to reapply every few hours.

UPDATE: sadly, the patchouli has ruined this scent for me. With repeat wearings I really notice it, and its presence starts to make me feel sick, especially when applied first thing in the morning. So this one isn't for me :)

I actually took this from my mum, since she wasn't using it anymore, and I find it really lovely. I'm not gaga for the scent, but I do like it, as it is a much younger version of the stronger, more pungeant Chanel perfumes that smell too rich for me. This has a whispery but tantalising fragrance, and I love the sound of the ingredients. It also lasts a long time and I can smell it on my clothes at night long after I've sprayed it. A very elegant perfume for those younger women looking for something a little more sophisticated to wear.

Ah, the modern classic that is CHANEL Coco Mademoiselle! This perfume opens with an intoxicating combination of sharp patchouli, sweet orange, and soft rose. It immediately creates a heavy sillage, which is the complete opposite of its sister, No. 5, who prefers to linger close to the skin.

As it dries down, the patchouli softens a bit, and gives way to more delicious citrus notes and creamy white florals (especially jasmine). On its final throes, which would take HOURS because of Coco Mademoiselle's amazing longevity, the citrus and jasmine tones down and is joined by a warm, musky undertone.

Coco Mademoiselle is sophisticated without being too mature. It's a flirty, fresh, and casual fragrance, best worn on a romantic weekend getaway rather than in a formal occasion. However, one has to splurge a bit to experience Coco Mademoiselle's magic. But it'll be totally worth it because, take my word for it, heads will turn!

Liene I had exactly the same with the Chanel Allure Eau de perfume, read my review for that.In 20-30 min whole scent is gone. Another fragrantica user gave reaction that indeed the reformulations are a pale shadow of it former scents. I contacted customer service of Chanel, I got a reaction back and they will contact me through phone about it. Pls do too, the more complaints maybe the better.I feel cheated because I payed 94 Euro for some scented water and I regret I bought it.Think indeed the tester was not what I got in the end. Went back to the store but they wouldn't take it back.

I just got a bottle after testing in the store and remembering how much I liked it so many winters ago... how refreshing the citrus was in the frost bite, how comforting the patchouli base paired with tonka bean and vanilla sweetness and cashmere silkiness from vetiver and musk... applied with light hand it was magnificent.
WTH have happened to this beauty after reformulation? It's like a ghost of the past fleeting by, no longevity, no sillage, just a faint memory of Coco Mademoiselle. I'm sure the tester was still from pre-reformulation, otherwise I would't have made the purchase. Shame on you Chanel...

Generic patchouli and rose.I thought for sure I'd love this because of the reviews but It's not that nice. IF this were bottled under 'Coty' nobody would like it

Soooo.. I understand why people compare this to miss dior... BUUUUT I have noticed that this one on the skin is much more masculine + it sillage and longevity are not as bright and distinctive as the miss dior... that also being said, coco mademoiselle smells "genric" like u know "perfume" .... but when you smell miss dior you can put your finger and be like miss dior! thats all Ive got to say...

Well Well, I must have been a good girl this year, because Santa gave me such a lovely present........

Coco Mademoiselle soap and body cream.

Absolutely beautiful. I could smell them both through the packaging.


Off for a long shower and body cream session.

Then I'll thank Santa in the best way possible :)

My husband repurchased this for yet another birthday. He last gifted this to me in 2012.

I must say 'well done' to Chanel. This intoxicating scent can be used by any age group, any time of the year and any time of the day.

It is such a lovely uplifting scent, with good bones. Light, refreshing and somewhat dainty - very feminine.

I get a picture of either an Edwardian lady walking in a beautiful green park with her parasol or a 1920's flapper having fun on the dance floor, right through to a Sloane ranger or an elegant French lady sipping coffee outside at a café in Paris., It certainly gives this perfume a wide range of users.

I am really pleased to have it in my scent wardrobe again.

saya pernah coba sniff parfum ini di baju teman wanita saya , yaa gak gitu mengecewakan sih , saya kasih nilai 6.9/10 utk overall parfum ini . saya melihat perfum ini lebih ke menunjukan sosok wanita yang 'berada' saja ,tidak lebih . bagi saya , saya kurang begitu tertarik dengan wanita pemakai parfum ini . seperti menunjukan wanita 'berada' yang gak ngerti parfum . itu hanya opini saya sebagai pria 23 tahun .

How have I missed this all these years? We met 2 weeks ago and it was love at first sniff. The infatuation is still roaring and I can't imagine ever not having this.

Chanel has always put me off a bit; #5 and Coco, well, not me, (too vintagey smelling) and Chance and its flankers were too, something. Again, not just right, although pretty close.
Seriously, I have had it in my mind that the great perfume houses all have the same general smell, as I've yet to try a Guerlain that didn't make me run from the room (they all smell the same to me and I have sampled over a dozen of the most popular- Sorry all you 99.9 percent out there, I know they are adored classics) so to find such variance in the Chanel line is nice, welcomed.

I like florals: Pleasures, Acqua di Gio, L'eau d'Issey, and a few more that aren't so well known, but those are the aromas I love, crave, need. Coco M. is one of those.

I have moved beyond crave/need to wear all the time. In August. Who said this is a cool weather scent? HAHAHAHA

My gourmands are making me sick lately so I ventured out to try a whole bunch of scents at once to try and find something that would fit the bill (something along the lines of SJP Lovely,Narciso Rodriguez or Modern Muse,but different).

When I first sprayed Coco Mademoiselle EDP,I was drawn to how different it is from anything I own.It is a mature,sophisticated scent and compared to my foodie scents,this had no perceptible sweetness or fruitiness to my nose.

This is the "soapy" scent I was looking for,nice and strong,giving me the same almost masculine feel as my Healing Garden Lavender Therapy.

The dry down is my favourite,the first 20-30 minutes are a bit too "fresh",and I love it when it gets richer and deeper.I find it quite strong/long lasting as I showered and washed with soap,and could still smell it on my arm and wrist.

I've never owned a Chanel fragrance and when I bought this today,I felt like I've become a proper lady...at 33!

Okay,I am back again. I have to admit, I really like this fragrance. I just got the 6.8 oz for Christmas. It is a special edition Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum. Strangely enough it seems to smell stronger and last longer than the 3.4 oz that I bought earlier. Maybe because it is a special edition it is a different batch and before the reformulation. This fragrance is very nice. When you just want elegant, clean and chic femininity. It is very soothing to your essence. That is why I bought the largest size. Ladies it really fills your hands with a bit of the scent of nirvana.

Just what I need during my long recovery from an injury.

The prices of perfume is going up every year! It's crazy ! I got a 21 percent off coupon to buy anything at the perfume shop so I bought this ! I took the opportunity because its so expensive! This is a signature fragrance that everyone loves and you do get what you pay for! I dress it up and dress it down. Never get's boring . Compliments endless when wearing this! It's popular and recognisable but it just smells AMAZING! End of story!

Coco Mademoiselle used to be my favorite (when I was 17.) However, now I think it's just too common. 7 or 8 out of 10 women around my age wear this, which is just TOO popular for me. I don't want to smell like every other girl strictly because scent is so linked to memory. I'm not trying to be snobby or anything, I just don't want there to be such a huge chance that I might smell like a future boyfriend's ex or something, especially when I'm not totally in love with the perfume to begin with. That's just my feelings.

Having said that though, it's still a pretty scent. I especially like the top notes. The bottle I have was purchased in 2011, so it's not the current reformulated one, apparently. I smelled it about a week ago in store and I have to say, the change is obvious. The bottle I have, once you spray it on you it lasts for a very long time (24 hours.) The new one was nearly gone by the time I got back to my car from walking around the mall for, say, 2 hours. That's very sad, ESPECIALLY for a Chanel. I also have the original Coco and have tested Coco Noir several times; Coco's lasting power is legendary and Coco Noir, while very much a skin scent after about 4-5 hours, it stays all day. Even the EDT of Coco Mademoiselle (I don't think it's been reformulated, has it? If it has, then I'm talking about the one c. 2011) has more impressive lasting power than the new EDP. Sad. :(

I am slowly enjoying the top notes, but I find if I make sure to spray on my skin without clothes on, and let it dry, the citrus won't stick around so long. The citrus is pretty strong for me otherwise. Anyway, so I am just in love with the rest. The scent lasts a lot longer on my clothes and lingers nicely in my room where I originally sprayed it on my self. The scent will always be special to me, because someone very important to me wears it (or did). I spray a teddy bear about once every 6-7 days and the scent stays on him (the citrus lasts way longer on him than my skin)! I very much enjoy the foaming shower gel and body lotion as well! The shower gel leaves a very faint, soft skin scent. The lotion is stronger than the shower gel, but weaker than the perfume. I put the lotion on at 11pm (shoulders, neck, chest, hands) and at 9am (even after being in bed) I can still smell is wonderfully, without even having to put my nose to my shoulder! The lotion seems to exist without as much citrus (which I prefer!). I think La Vie Est Belle is my 'signature' but Coco Mademoiselle is by far my 'favorite'.

Coco Mademoiselle is the greatest perfume in the world, in my opinion and I'm a freak of like 25 perfumes on my vanity! Nothing can even compare to this!!! There is a REASON you smell it everywhere... So many women LOVE it and want to wear it because it's just AMAZING! I can recognize it in a crowd but it's a little bit different on everyone. A 20-something college girl can wear it, a refined 35 year old wife and mother can wear it, a 50-something female executive can wear it, a retired grandmother can wear it, and they can all carry it off! Men totally ADORE it as well and it never fails to draw compliments. Citrus, white floral, light patchouli, with subtle warmth and sweetness. I wish it weren't so expensive but a little goes a long way and it lasts FOREVER! It's suitable for every season and every time of day, from the office, to lunch with your mother, to an anniversary date with your husband, straight to the bedroom. And will last all the way through! If a fragrance were to be perfection, it would be THIS! So classy, refined and elegant, yet sexy and exotic, yet light and sunny... and totally INTOXICATING!

The first bottle I ever owned of Coco Mademoiselle, was a gift from my husband and I was mesmerized at first sniff. Powdery, flowery, patchouli-citrus infused goodness. Very Chanel but more my style than the original Coco or No 5, which I can only admire from afar; unfortunately they don't mix well with my skin chemistry. This one was pure perfection though. I tested it out at a duty-free shop on a cruise and later on, my husband surprised me with it as a gift. I had this bottle for years and recently ran out...
I went to Macy's to repurchase and didn't test it since I've been wearing it for years, but maybe I should have because something is different. The smell is still gorgeous but the sillage and longevity have been cut in half.
Now, please take note, I am not one to go around bashing all of the reformulations out there. A few of my beloved Guerlains and Diors have also been reformulated and I have not left negative feedback. This one breaks my heart though. This perfume was always very special to me and it was one of the few citrus/floral/patchouli scents (which I love) that had amazing sillage and longevity. Those types of scents are usually soft and fleeting on my skin but this was an exception. It was something I could wear any time, for any occasion and I didn't have to worry about it wearing off.
The scent is still the same beauty it was years ago, but I am not pleased with the reformulation. Please don't hate me; I am just being completely honest in my findings. I expected better from Chanel. This scent was very special to me; I wore it on my wedding day so it will always hold a very special place in my heart.

Where shall I begin? I shall begin from the moment I went to the Chanel Boutique in Palm Beach to browse back when Mademoiselle first came out.

I was looking at the latest make up collection and the sales associate told me they had a new Coco fragrance. I was of course interested seeing Coco had been my signature fragrance since 1986. I wanted to take a whiff. When I smelled the paper tester it reminded me in a way of Angel which I cannot stand. The associate was taken back with me remarking thus and said I should go wash the Coco I was wearing off (which of course took three washings) and give it a spritz. At first application it was very strong. I was used to that with Coco but it still reminded me of Angel. I decided not buy it then with my other purchases and see how it wore on me. I was driving back home which is two hours from Palm Beach and within thirty minutes Mademoiselle started her magic. I started falling in love! Why hadn't I bought her when I couldn't live without her?!? I turned around and went back to the Worth Avenue Boutique and made my first purchase of the 3 ounce bottle. I got home and my husband at the time was loving the way I smelled. Awesome! I wore it almost everyday. People were constantly asking what I had on.

I have gone through about five bottles since then. I still wear my first love Coco and I also now have Coco Noir which is amazingly soft and fabulous. Mademoiselle is now one of the most loved and worn fragrances in the world and the reason for it is that she is utterly gorgeous! I see ladies in the Department stores constantly testing her and saying how much they love her. I love her too! Who wouldn't love such perfection?

CM gives me nausea and headaches.. I don't think it is classy. And it's too similar to Miss Dior. They are both really popular, because many women LOVE them.. But, honestly, I think that Chanel and Dior can do better fragances. IMO.

One of my all time favorite perfumes. I had smelled it on a coworker and I couldn't get over how beautiful it was. When she told me it was Chanel I was taken by complete surprise because I always thought it was a brand for more mature women. For about a year when shopping at a fragrance counter Id walk by and sniff it from the bottle still not sold on it being for a younger women. Finally one of the sales people made me try some on my wrist and I immediately bought a bottle. I've never used anything with this much longevity and silage. One small spray is enough to last me an entire day. I smell this on my skin when I wake up after applying it at about 6am the pervious day. Oh how I love this!!!

I just don't understand why this gets all the hate just because it got all the love:) it is popular, but how does that make it less amazing? Very classy, definitely a day scent for me, has a slight sweetness to it, but I still wouldn't label it as sweet, more like a citrus sweetens, a bit musk, a biiiiiiiiiit powdery (enough to make it classy and expensive smelling). Lovely!!!

Gorgeous. Personality not age, decides which women can wear Coco Mademoiselle. Attention: "pronounced finesse only". Not for everyone and a standalone. This is not a mainstream perfume and should have been kept for exclusive retail purchase only.

I wish I could love this scent.
It is a hand-me-down from my sis, who told me that her daughters complained about it as'stinky' (sorry, guys who love it).
I thought it was a very mainstream feminine scent and had nothing against it.

But now, I am bothered by some lingering base note(?).
I found it by chance when I was walking down my neighbourhood park by the lake. Some lady was wearing it strongly and there was a distinct lasting scent, which was not so much of subtlety, but a way too much spicy.
It shouts "this is COCO ! not your own signature perfume!"
In my opinion, the last note should be subtle,gentle and personal.
This perfume is 'trying too much' for me.
I might not realize its 'too much'ness while I was wearing it since my nose is numbed by its power.
I love majority of spicy, chypre perfumes, yet I'm not so fond of this. Mmmm... I wonder why..

This is one of the old school fragnances which passed the trial of time. Most of those new trends are just not to wear for me. This one has this specific scent that makes you feel happy and smiling:) Citrus is not so strong here - I love those balsamic notes, but still there is some craziness in this fragnance:)

When I wear it, I feel that I am 18 again and I am just about to go out pick up some guys with my friends on some nice party:) This is a very joyful fragnance.

I also use her older sister, sometimes mix them:)

So far all my clothes and my dwelling have the smell of coco - when returning home I luv it:) This is also so nice experience when people, who are with me, or in my house go with "What is this smell?" - subconsciouss actions with their noses:)

Normally, I love the Chanel-parfums. But I do think that Coco Mademoiselle is a bit overrated. I like the ''sharp'' smell it has in the beginning, but unfortunaly that doesn't last long enough for me. Although it is a nice parfume for a young, independent woman.

Oh, Chanel Madamoiselle, you sneaky minx. I had no intention of trying you since your relatives, #5 and Allure, and I don't get along. I was put off by your notes since I gravitate to white florals.

But you found your way into a magazine insert and you have since become a staple in my fragrance shelf.

I decided to buy this one this week after very long.and hard conciderations.i Will try to tell you why: For the last four years or so i've been wearing Miss Dior (new) as My signature, but i felt i needed something new whilst still on the same note. Before My registration at fragrantica i was unaware of Coco m. And found it trough this site referered from miss dior. As meny of you, i agree that Coco m is similar to miss dior, but for me the recemblance starts and ends with the strong patcholi notes. Coco m is much sweeter and rich. What i liked about miss dior was the fresh, french, simple, soapy, feminine yet spicy-feel that it has. I am not to keen about the drydown of md on me anymore and with its advertising I imagine it best suits someone under 25. Anyhow, I wanted something new with more of a warmer, adult tone to it. So My choices came down to: miss dior le perfum (found it too strong/evening), modern muse (the drydown was horrible on me, lite something cheap and rotten), ambre gris (kinda liked it but did not dare to byt it), ivore (found it to light), and narcisso Rodríguez - for her (really liked it but it smelled to much like SJP - lovely which I used to wear in high school), and Coco m. So, why did i choose Coco m? Maybe it is a little on the sweet side and i worry that it is to common (although i have never met someone who wears it) and way to ickygirly (like juicy coture), but what I really like is that it is a nice compromice from miss dior, it is warmer, i love the musky drydown and the bottle. When I saw the advertising i felt it was for me (27 years old), i also like the fresh citrus notes in the beginning. When I first tried this in the spring I felt a strong middle note which I cannot put My finger on (not sure if it might be the mimosa or jasmine), that i really did not like. But now i do not feel it anymore and I am very pleased with my purchase although it might not be the most daring one ;)

I used to wear it and used to love it.
My problem with it is that nowadays it's everywhere.
Everyone and their dog, cat, hamster and budgerigar are wearing this.
It doesn't matter that it's expensive. It's available in every pharmacy and perfume store and every girl, no matter what her skin chemistry is like, thinks "I'll smell classy wearing this". No.
If you wander around the city at 3am drunk off your head falling around on your ugly sky high heels, screaming some silly stuff at the top of your lungs then no, you're not classy. And in my city, those are the girls that wear Chanel Coco Mademoiselle. Eek. So sad.

This was love at first spritz, classy, gorgeous and reminds me of a sweet floral with a slight oriental twist. I could sleep in this cue Marilyn Monroe No5 moment. The one things that stops this being my signature scent is...everyone else loves it just as much. I smell it everywhere on everyone and that pains, it's like turning up at a party in the same dress as three other people. Still, however a beautiful fragrance.

I was shopping with my friend when I 1st smelt this & my immediate thought was 'this smells cheap'
My friend got a bottle because she loved it & later that week we went out, she as wearing it & I couldn't believe how nice it was!
On the skin this smells sexy as hell. Like really sexy, i get the citrus in the opening & normally I would never consider citrus sexy but in this it definetly is. She got the eau de perfume which is stronger than the eau de toilette but I have to admit the eau de toilette to me smells a tad different if not better?? I don't know but I now really like this & in cold weather OMG it smells even better

Let's see... Firstly I was not very keen on this one and it seamed too fruity/citrus and not so strong (I prefer stronger). I have 50ml bottle so I decided to give it a chance last night. I really changed my mind,it seduced me and I will wear it more often. It is fresh,femine scent,not so citrus,more floral for me :) long lasting but I always overspray

It is citrus fruits mixed with rose that give it that sharp sweet smell. I feel elegant and refined and imagine this is what a romantic weekend in Paris would smell like. It is beautiful and ultra feminine. I smell a gentle coffee woody base in this perfume which is barely there due to the sharpness of the citrus and rose, i can also smell heavy lily and jasmine as mid notes once the fragrance settles. It is classy sophisticated and adorable it is for the ultra feminine graceful woman, i automatically feel more confident and have a feminine prowess when i wear this one. The lasting is absolutely amazing, it can last for 2 days on me, this is the kind of perfume that will never disappoint & is suitable for all occasions it surrounds you with charm and grace. It gives you that Marilyn Monroe feel, care-free ultra feminine and charming and graceful always.
This perfume just makes you feel like a lady, I imagine a romantic shabby house in Paris and hiding away making love for days whenever I spray this. it is such a feel good perfume, it makes a woman feel like a woman. It is so expensive but I will eventually own a bottle of this beautiful juice. This is the only extremely popular fragrance I love. Because to be honest this one tells a different story on every single woman who wears it - you don't just smell this fragrance, you feel it.
For those of you who have seen the movie the dreamers, I believe Eva Green's character would have been the perfect representation to sell this scent. She is elegant, sophisticated, classy and naturally beautiful yet vulnerable, charming, childlike and naïve. She knows there is darkness in the world but choses to create her own fantasy world where she can remain blindly optimistic and hopeful.

Wow this was a real disappointment for me. I really looked forward to testing it because I heard so much about it. It really is a let down. It's weak. When I sprayed some on my wrist I had to keep sniffing it in order to smell something. After a while though it smells like a mixture of dior ms Cherie and chanel chance.
Chanel can do so much better.

This is a classy fragrance which is very feminine. It's extremely powerful, so a little really does go a long way, don't overspray or you'll be smelling the house out. Although it's a strong fragrance, it does settle down nicely into a soft (yet still has great silage) floral scent. I'd say it's a mature scent, not in the grandma sense, but for someone who is very sure of themselves to wear this, without the fragrance wearing them. I do get the tea notes very strongly, which actually work really well with the other notes. A pleasant scent, very nice.

A strong, refreshing blast of citrus in the beginning followed by a sweet patchouli drydown. I know. Sounds familiar.

But this is a lovely take on a popular theme. Sweet, but not too candyish, flowery but not overblown, youthful but mature, present, but neither too loud nor too soft.

Something in this stays consistently sharp on my skin, though, and I'm not sure what it is. Could it be the bergamot? This definitely reads as balsamic on me.

I have had a sample of this laying around for about half a year. I first sprayed it, thought it smelt too synthtic and put it away. I found it a few days ago and sprayed again - this time directly on my skin, and not on my clothes. At first it IS mildly synthetic with no sweetness, then it become a little flowery, then it settles fully. On *my* skin the drydown of this something like VERY soft rose and jasmine, with non-sweet vanilla and almond, and some kind of freshness. I would describe the overall impression as a very soft smell, slightly gourmand-ish, but fresh, quite skin-like. I usually really dislike gourmand scents, but this one is so fresh and close to the skin that I actually really like it!

UPDATE: I really love testing out perfumes. Most of those I test, I get a sample of and wear for some time. My boyfriend of 4 years has smelt over a hundred perfumes on me. Very rarely, and always after I had asked, he might say that a perfume smells "OK" or "nice". Yesterday, I wore this, and might have oversprayed a little... the smell apparently transferred to our bed. Today, when I came home, the FIRST AND ONLY time I've ever heard anything like this (and this was probably the second thing my boyfriend said when I came in the door): my boyfriend told me "I was lying in our bed, and just smelling it - it smells SO pleasant and girly, from you!" :)

I tried this again for the 2nd time in about 6 months. I can't believe that I don't love this fragrance. For all that Chanel No 5 and Premiere is, this just isn't for me. Don't get me wrong, it's nice. Please do try it first. I think I like it a bit more since I have been in the hospital with drugs and dyes running through my blood, so maybe all that has endeared it a tad more to me. Not enough endearment to wear full fledged spray right on for a whole day. Seriously perplexed to why I'm not loving it, perhaps it's a Chype and has that opponox and vevitier. Sorry for the misspelling, but those two notes I never like in a fragrance. Oddly enough, I don't hate it, but man, I have so many others that are so much more worthy. LOL. To quote Garth and Wayne :D I can see some people loving it if those notes are for them. I bet my sister would love this. I guess I'll pass it on to her. I just though EVERYTHING Chanel makes has to smell fantastic. Probably so, just this one does not on me. I also can't believe that in all my life, I have not tried Chance or the other few Chanel has. Maybe that's a good thing.

If Chanel No.5 is the oldest daughter...graceful and poised, and Coco is the middle child...wild and rebellious, then Mademoiselle has to be the baby of the family.

While she shares characteristics with both of her older sisters, they are much more diluted in her.

With that said, I do like this fragrance and I think it's great for a spring or summer day. However, it's no comparison to No.5 or Coco.

When I've worn Mademoiselle, both men and women alike seem to be drawn to it. It has just enough elegance yet just enough spice to stay in the family, but although I like it now, it's not one I can see myself wearing forever.

I believe the name in itself is very a propos considering how light it is, its composition, and because overall it seems to appeal to a particular age group.

My 2nd review to this fragrance:
This is probably my fourth time wearing this frangrance. Its not as heavy as I though it would be to linger and it last about 4 to 5 hours on me but I do love the smell of it. Its very mature, elegant sexy and it does stand out.
I couldn't see myself wearing it everyday but it is lovely. Highly recommend.

Dear ellaquintero,
I had the very same experience with this. I tried this on my left arm and the edt version on right arm.... and I could not smell it 10 minutes later. I thought that only the samples are watered down and since it's a Chanel I hoped the real bottles are stronger so I bought the edp. This is the 3rd day I'm using it and I have to admit, it is very light indeed. But I love the scent anyway so I apply it liberally (4-5 spritz)

I'm so disappointed on Chanel. I'm sorry, guys... As I had used to love and wear it before, I was about to buy a FB of Coco Mademoiselle without trying it, but the sales lady told me to try it first so that I was completely sure on my choice.
She sprayed some on my arm and some on a paper trap... Nothing. NOTHING. Like water with a hint of "something"... barely there "something". I couldn't believe it. I thought it was the sample bottle. So, the lady brought another bottle, and the same thing happened. Later she explained to me that there had been a lot of complaints from costumers on the quality of Chanel's perfumes. That's why she wanted me to try it first. :/
Well, I love Coco Mademoiselle and I hope that they fix the formula or whatever, because I want it and miss it really bad :(

This used to be my signature scent and I was so in love with this perfume. However, I recently changed my mind about this perfume and don't get me wrong cause I still like it but the fact that this perfume is too popular bugs me :-( everywhere I go from the grocery store to the college parties or night outs there are people wearing this perfume and I don't feel this perfume is unique choice to pull it out since everyone wears it.

I am so late to the Coco Mlle fan club, but better late than never.

This is such a refreshing, energizing citrus scent on me. I don't get any of the sweetness that others have observed. Funny thing, this skin chemistry.

Coco Mlle EDP stays mostly linear on me.
I love that orangey/grapefruity zing in the opening minutes. Then that sparkle calms down due to the touch of patchouli which emerges. It's not a strong patchouli -- it comes across more as that slight bitterness you get from the rind/white layer just inside the peel. Almost like how grapefruit is juicy, but the skin can be bitter.

It is absolutely nothing like the other sugary "sweetchoulies" or "fruitchoulies" on the market.

This is the perfect citrus scent for spring and for summer mornings, and unlike typical citrus scents, this actually lasts for most of the day on me.

I got the 1.7 oz EDP from duty-free for $80, and one spritz is more than enough to last most of the day. (I actually only do 1 spritz on my stomach, and then touch my wrists to that spot).

Fresh, fruity....energizing in some sense....suited for a young lady who remains active and in an upbeat state of mind throughout the day. If you are still a college girl inside then give this a try. Don't even bother trying if you are a suit and meetings kind of a person. Just what I got from this !!

Don't hate me for what you are about to read. I bought this perfume just yesterday and I must admit, I didn't like it at all. I am 25 and live in the tropics (India) . I don't know what is special about this perfume. I quite dislike it. I wanted to like ot after reading all the positive comments but that failed to happen. I mean , its a CHANEL for heaven's sake, It has to be extraordinary but honestly and sadly, it didn't impress me even a bit. Will be replacing this one .

It seems like I have grown into this scent. A couple of years ago I could not wear it, because it only smelled like carrots on me, but now it smells like it is supposed to smell. Patchouli, citrus, tiny bit of rose. It's fresh, feminine, luxurious, not too mature, not too young. Could be used days or nights, and the bottle is beautiful. It's truly enjoyable, and I envy My mum because she has this in her collection.

I smelled this a long time ago and only a while back I found out that it's Coco Mademoiselle. I remember telling myself: "THIS is it. Your search for the perfect perfume is OVER." Thus far, it remains true. Coco Mademoiselle really lives up to the hype, and for all the good reasons.

This hands down is the most beautiful perfume I've ever known. It's a total signature scent material and an absolute all-rounder, with excellent points all over. The smell is feminine, sweet and yet fresh, without getting too cloying: they are all balanced very beautifully. I always have high expectations for Chanel perfumes, and Coco Mademoiselle certainly hits all the right spots. From opening to the very last whiff, Coco Mademoiselle never lets you down. It opens with a very bright note which only gets better as the middle and base notes shine through. In fact, the residual scent left after a few days still smells wonderful, albeit more sweetish. It's a perfume you'll fall in love with over and over again. Each time I smell Coco Mademoiselle I feel like I'm going back in time, telling myself the same exact words that this definitely is the perfect little one. The only downside? You seriously need to splurge to get a bottle of this magic.

Coco Mademoiselle puts the extra notch in any mademoiselle who wants to feel flirty and feminine yet at the same time classy. You'll never have to worry about smelling cheap when you have Mademoiselle on: no matter which season and which clothes, it just works (at least for me!) Maybe I'm just crazy about this perfume, but it's just too good that if I had to choose just one perfume to live with for the rest of my life, this would definitely be it :)

Rating: 9.5/10

I finally bought this after reading all the reviews. I paid 97 for 50ml which was I thought was expensive but it was well worth it.
Its a nice lovely fragrance for being my first Chanel perfume. It gets a lot of compliments. Even when I don't wear it I catch myself taking the top off just to sniff it every Now and then.
It's a good perfume to wear all year long.

I have it!! Finally! I asked my husband to buy EDT, but in a hurry he bought EDP! Awesome! So...let me tell you: I`m nor rich, nor famous,but I feel sooo feminine wearing it! It is quite stronger than the EDT,quite sweeter, warmer, yer I see no problem in wearing it summer evenings. As other ladies said bellow, since it is quite popular, I don't think it`s an exclusive one, it is a little expensive, but worth all the money. I love it!

I find this a nice linear summer citrusy fragrance with good sillage and longevity.
I can't find the high class and sophisticated elegance so many people talk about, and I can't ever see this as a winter scent. Honestly if it was that elegant and classy as several other Chanels it would not be trendy and popular these days at all.
Of course it is more elegant than most of today's trendy perfumes, but still no more than simply a good quality youthful summer citrus for me, far from being classy, perhaps because it's so trendy.
Suits a pretty summer dress very well but I would find it inappropriate for more formal wear, even semi-formal, and definitely not enough substance for winter.


UPDATE: I begin to understand the elegance in this, maybe comparing it to the heavier scents I own was not fair. Good quality definitely, and I'm slowly getting to appreciate it more as more and more notes come out from beyond the sour citrus.

A perfume that makes you want to choose a more elegant outfit for work or going out, put some make up on...You feel like a real lady wearing this. Not a seductive lady, but a classy lady.

Sillage and longevity are great - 10/10 for me!

Please make sure that when you test it in store you give it a chance to stay a few minutes on your wrist before you make up your mind. The real fragrance developes after 5-10 minutes or so.


The best, but very expensive!

I'm on the fence with this one. On one hand, I don't dislike it, and I got compliments like crazy all day in it. But on the other hand, it just doesn't drive me wild.

First things first, it is worth every penny if you're looking for sillage and longevity. I sprayed this on me at 10:30 this morning, 3 sprays-- once on outer wrists (I sit at a desk all day so I don't like it to rub off on it), once on inner wrists just because, and once on my neck. I'm telling you, I can STILL smell this on me, and I write this at 12am. So past 12 hours!!

Secondly, the notes itself is what sways me. Don't get me wrong, there are parts to this fragrance that I really enjoy. The opening smelled to me somewhat like La Vie Est Belle (which I love), but I think that's just the patchouli and vanilla. But it had some moments today that I felt like I smelled like I was wearing a masculine scent... About 8 hours or so into wearing it. And just the sillage for me was so overwhelming, that it made me feel a little nauseous :/

Maybe my chemistry just isn't ready to run with the big dogs. Nonetheless, I say for me personally it's a 6/10. Had it not made me feel queasy, it'd have been at least an 8.5/10. It's a really pleasing scent, no wonder everyone loves it :)

I spent a small fortune of the EDP of this for my wife. It would be fine except no matter how much she puts on (even tried spraying on her clothes), the scent fades away to non existent within an hour. Won't be buying this again.

Aldehydes, vanilla, rose, jasmin, ylang, something fresh and green, opoponax, lemons, soft musks. If even I could detect these barely smelling the opening for some minutes, it means this scent is really simple and balanced, and all components are there under your nose – which is something I always enjoy, no matter the quality of such components (to this extent). A pleasant "reading" for a clear, simple, delicate fragrance. A refreshing apple flavour (probably a side effect of aldehydes and flowers) and a sweet, fruity, cozy soft galaxolide base which smells of mellow musks. A chemical galore, of course: perfectly shaped and "rounded" around the composition which smells exactly the same for hours, with a great projection. But you know what? It does not compare to Coco, but it's not bad at all.

7/10

I wore this for a couple of years after it came out and loved it. Then it seemed everyone I encountered had it on as well (and WAY too much) and it lost its appeal. Then I sort of just forgot about it. I recently met a client who was wearing it (lightly as it should be worn) and it was simply beautiful and I could not get it out of my head. I stopped by Sephora today and tried it again...and I swear it smells better than I even remembered. Has it been reformulated? It seems so much smoother than I remember it years ago. And only $68 for a small EDP seems like steal compared to what I have been paying for perfume for a while. I felt like maybe I should run out the door before they caught the price error. :)

I hate the word "classy" but Coco Mademoiselle really is just that. The client I met who was wearing it was impeccably dressed and the fragrance reflected it. To me, she is the type of person this was made for. It actually smells like someone who is polished and put together. Not saying that everyone who wears it fits the bill (not at all) but it is showcased best when combined with tailored and tasteful.

This is not a scent for a wild child, this is a perfume for a polished lady. While I am a casual t-shirt and jeans kind of gal and hardly tailored and polished, CM is really not "me".....but I will just have to make it work on occasion. Or maybe it will make me take a few extra pains getting ready. It makes me feel like a lady, even when I may not quite live up to that. But at least I can smell like one.

This is one of my favourite scents. I bought this after so many ours of review reading and several tours to the department store. It didn't disappoint me. One of the longest staying perfumes I have ever owned. It is not too sharp, very elegant, could be worn anywhere and anytime. Maybe lacks a little bit of sugar but I shouldn't say this about the masterpiece of the Queen of Perfume.

There is very pure possibility you will find another perfume similar to this! I mean, it's not a perfume like Flowerbomb or Si, that you swear you've smelt a thousand times before!Magnificent scent!

Yes this is a very popular perfume from girls and women in their teens, 20s, 30s, 40s, etc and guess what? There is nothing wrong with that! It's a lovely, ultra posh, feminine scent so no wonder why its so beloved by many. Classics wouldnt be classics if nobody loved them at some point or another.

Mademoiselle is Bright yet warm. A bit soapy on me. Citrusy welcome followed by a slight spiciness im guessing from the patchoulli, sweet witout being too sweet, lots of white florals and rose, vanilla and tonka in the end.

some words that come to mind:Lady, woman, feminine, elegant, happy, expensive, shiny, jewlery, heels or nice ballerinas, sunglasses, red fingernails, mimosas, the colors light pink, white and beige, harmony...

When i want to feel like an elegant lady regardless of the season and my age, without smelling too sweet, or too spicy, too masculine, to fresh, or too floral, there is this. Its a simple, easy yet beautiful fragrance.

I have two bottles of this since I used to love it. But my nose gets tired of it now, it has a thick base note that bothers me, I feel like it using my face all the time I can not even wash it away. I don't think it is for school or lounge. And the biggest problem is that it is almost everywhere! I feel like everyone( even some guys) owns one bottle of this!

Oh my, another one of my favorites. This is elegant, sophisticated, and mature in a bottle. Again 1-2 sprays is enough and has excellent sillage and longevity smells literally all day. Its very bold in the beginning but throughout the day it softens up but its still there. This is another magnificent scent if used with a light hand. You can definetly smells the orange blossom, my favorite flower the jasmine, and musk. This scent is also a smell to wear for a memorable occasion and could be an everyday scent if properly applied. Less is more, more becomes over the top. And yes it is expensive but the bottle if used with a light hand will last you for years. One of my best scents I LOVE THIS!

10/10

UPDATE: Oh my gosh I got this fragrance from my boyfriend ! This was the biggest surprise from him ever, I had no idea he could give it to me....
So my the most dreamed perfume is finally in my perfume collection. Perfect icing on the cake! ♥
When sprayed on my skin, I definitely felt patchoulli, citruses (bergamot, orange), soft touch of jasmin and rose. I don´t recognize any vanilla in it. It was developing really pleasantly, but the drydown was the best. It was like a bouquet of main notes intensified with white musk. Oh, how much I adore white musk. The longevity is about 8-10-12 hours (depends on wearing body lotion, showered, etc.) which is fabulous. People are frequently asking what I am wearing. I own 50 ml bottle and I am sure I won´t be dishonoring it by wearing every day, and also not just to special occasions like 2-3 times a year. It will by my good days one fragrance ... So happy finally having it <3 Thanks

Exquisite up in cloud nine, Channel Coco Mademoiselle but don't be put off with the dominant strong green citrus opening with the orange, grapefruit & bergamot. Stay with me!!..... around a hour it honestly get's better as it does soften into a classic, sexy feminine masterpiece. Mademoiselle is very fresh slightly powdery with white musk & with a sweet sugary patchouli, romantic middle note of the rose which on me Coco Mademoiselle works well on my skin chemistry but it's not the case with everyone so please sample first. On me it is warm with a oriental aroma & well rounded which makes this very beautiful & comfortable to wear. I found it draws in many nice compliments & suitable also for any occasion. A unforgettable, mysterious scent that lasts all day & if sprayed gently can become a new found love.

I'm going to start like this: DON'T LYNCH ME!

So... this is a 2nd review for me. I have owned Coco Mademoiselle for 4 years now. In my 1st review, I did say I liked it, but I didn't adore it. That's what Coco Mad has been for me: a perfume that is easy to wear because it is so likable, but not one that is unforgettable or an obsession, for me.

All this was true when I was a perfume rookie, and I really just bought whatever the SA recommended. I have since really refined my taste, and I have a very good idea of what I love.

Given that, I now think that Coco Mad is... the least 'masterpiece' Chanel fragrance. I do still think it is very, very, very, EXTREMELY well-blended, because, yes, it is Chanel, but I think I finally understand why die-hard Chanelistas called this a sellout to the mainstream. It is so... eager to please everyone. It is very generic, and smells alike to soooooooo many other, lesser fragrances. Very "down with the people", I smell this everywhere, or maybe I smell things that smell like this everywhere. I went out to dinner with five girlfriends the other day, and 4 out of 6 were wearing this. When I went to the Ladies room and came back, Coco Mad was literally wafting off the table in a great big generic cloud of sameness.

I still think it is a great way to get into Chanel for any girl who likes the popular, mainstream Daisy/Flowerbomb/Viva La Juicy 'Sephora faves', because it wouldn't be as large a jump as, say Chanel 5... but it's just too common and not special enough for me any more.

My new Chanel boo is 19 Poudre, which is... ugh, PHENOMENAL.

Where so I start with Coco Mademoiselle? I've had it for a few years now and it was always "meh" to me and never got worn. But wait, don't crucify me just yet!! I've actually found a new appreciation for this perfume and I've been wearing it more than ever lately.

Why the change of heart? Could it be the awesome sillage and longevity? Could it be that it's a modern classic? Or perhaps it's all the patchouli?

Actually, it's a combo of all these things that have given me my new found appreciation. I love how my skin "darkens" the patchouli in this perfume. It starts off fresh and gets darker as it dries. I love how it lasts forever on my skin and it lingers on my bed linen the next day.

Coco Mademoiselle, I'm sorry I didn't pay enough attention to you when I first acquired you. But now, all of that's changed and I love you.

This is my first Chanel perfume and I love it! I love the opening citrusy notes that dry down to a mixture with a hint of vanilla and musk while remaining so fresh and lovely Very feminine and it really gets my husband's attention! Just wonderful! HOWEVER...I am finding that I have to reapply every couple hours to keep scent going. I have cheap perfumes that have better longevity and sillage; kind of disappointing.

Very ladylike. Not an in your face type. I wear this when I want to feel very pretty and dainty. I would call this Chanel No. 5's BFF. Wanting the aggressive edge, but keeping it nice and pretty. Let No. 5 do the heavy lifting. Coco M. is easygoing and smooth. Get an older version if possible. It's worth the extra money!

I love Coco Chanel. This one I just like.
To my nose they are distant relatives.
I'd wear Coco Mademoiselle, in the morning and when looking for a fresh yet deep and sophisticated perfume.
However Coco is the classic perfume for me. Strong and powerful scent. Even in my younger days I still preferred Coco.
Yet it must be said, that from the perfumes targeted at younger women this one is quite classy and elegant.

This is unmistakably Chanel in character - powdery, strong sillage - but it smells like an awful lot of other perfumes at the moment: very sweet, mixed with some citrus and easy florals. For that reason I find it a bit boring but still a bit old lady-ish.
If you were looking for a young (sweeter and fresher) take on a classic, I would recommend Guerlain's Shalimar Initial over Coco Mademoiselle. Indeed, I would recommend Guerlain over Chanel any day of the week. It is not stocked in as many department stores, but definitely worth hunting down.
Nonetheless, Chanel have definitely won in terms of marketing: pretty juice, and smart ads with Keira!

very likeable once you get used to it. The patchouli is earthy. An expressive perfume, long lasting with pure sillage power. on my skin the patchouli and citrus dance a heavy nuance as king and queen, there is a lilt of sweetness on me and the musk is definitely there! I just wish that the floral and sweet notes were more expressive. however, its in no way generic!!!!! maintains its integrity to the last whiff! wow wow wow

I wasn't planning on doing a review for this particular fragrance,too much has been said and people seem to despise it a little, which saddens me, because I love it. However, today something happened that I think is worth sharing with my fellow fragranticans. This morning I generously sprayed on Estèe Lauder's Beautiful, big 80s floral powerhouse. By noon I could still distinctively smell it on me and my clothes. I got chilly and I reached for my bag I pulled out a cardi, same one I had worn on Friday, along with Coco Mademoiselle, and to my surprise, it still smelled, as strong as if I just sprayed it on (today is Tuesday). It smelled so strongly that it totally overpowered Beautiful, not an easy task. Now, all I can smell is CM. The longevity on this one is monstrous. To me this is a lovely scent and I totally think that one gets great value for its price. I'm a girl who enjoys fragrances, I don't think myself a perfumista and I don't really care if this one is too popular for its own good, I love it and I'll keep on wearing it.

Ok maybe I judged this fragrance too harshly!! Today is my second day wearing it and it seems it has warmed up nicely on my skin. I'm getting the citrus note better, maybe because today is a warm day. When I put this on this morning, I felt ready to conquer the world. I could relate to Keira Knightly, which is why I bought this fragrance in the first place, fell in love with the advertising. So maybe this is perfect for the beginning of spring and warm days, but doesn't work as well on my skin when it's cool.

I got this as a graduation gift from my uncle in the end of November last year. At first, I thought it would smell so girly and too sweet, which I don't really like. I'd rather wear masculine scent or any scent that smells "mature". I don't know it's just my preference or maybe my taste of choosing fragrance has changed as I grown up now (I used to like Paris Hilton, Sarah Jessica Parker's Lovely, and also Jennifer Lopez's Still). And when I sprayed this on my wrist, I totally fell in love with CM, it has nice smell, a bit fresh and youthful, but still smells as elegant as Chanel no.5. I felt really beautiful wearing this. And I love the longevity of CM, it stays really long on my skin. I sprayed once on my wrist, two on my neck, and once on my blouse on 8 am, and when I met some friends at 8 pm, one of them said "I love your scent, a bit sweet and I can smell such a nice musk scent at the same time, what is it?"
And my dad said he still noticed the scent in the morning after.

Knowing that I love Chanel, a friend of mine bought me a huge bottle of this when it was first launched. I love Chanel, and I tried to love this one - I really did. However, it's a mess.

There's so much going on here in such a disjointed way, it smells like a very young woman who is erratic, even a little schizophrenic.

It did catch people's attention when I wore it, but it only got two compliments. Most of the time, people simply nodded their heads when I told them the name or even seemed a little surprised when I stated that it was Chanel.

I'm so sorry because I wanted to like it so much, but it did not work. I'll start with the positive aspects - amazing quality, I convinced that Chanel holds the lead in this regard. I have no problem with the lasting power of scent, superb!
Negative side - while I was wondering what bothers me in this exquisite perfume(not because of patchouli, because I learned to like it), my man with a sniff found it - very sharp and intrusive, he said, and his comment was very accurate on the spot.
I could not put it in the "dislike" because although I do not like the reasons given above, I can't deny that for me this is the perfume of the highest quality from the ones I've tried so far. Incidentally in Sephora had a lot of Guerlain perfumes, but none of them were as good as Coco Mademoiselle.
I'm still in search of the right Chanel for me. I love this brand!

I really love this perfume! It lasts a long time on your skin and in your clothes and smells good at the same time of course.
Although I don't really pick up on a lot of the citrus in this perfume, I'll have to pay closer attention next time I smell it (and maybe even finally buy it).
Either way, you can't really go wrong with Chanel

Another husband review... But with a few reservations. I know from a woman's point of view that to be bought and to wear Mademoiselle is a luxury and will make the wearer feel special. Pretty, refined, delicate, sensual and chic. It is a beautiful fragrance to smell on a woman but, and here's the bit I'm worried about from possible reactions, like so many of the good fragrances, it can become over worn, and there is the difficulty in some people choosing to wear it PURELY because it's "Chanel, darling!"... Having the right skin chemistry can make the difference to how this is received by an audience. Fortunately, my wife wears this very well, but I have been close to people who really don't do the fragrance justice. It's a really delicate issue but however lovely this fragrance is, there are others that my wife wears that MOVE me. Both me and my wallet could argue to the death over this- but neither of us would ever win against my wife!!! As long as she feels special and confident wearing Mademoiselle, she will be supplied on demand!
I do think a high rotation of favourites should be used to highlight the occasion on which Mademoiselle is chosen. A choice of fragrance should always depend on the occasion and the effect the wearer wants to achieve. So care should be taken not to overdo the occasions one wears this. My wife loves it so much, It often hits the "okay, can we try something else this week?" anosmia barrier.

Women tend to wear Chanel for the inherent psychological impact related to Chanel, to impart status and class, and it can work perfectly...

... For when all else fails, what other reason does there exist "Chanel, darling."?

I used to own and absolutely loved this fragrance. That was until my 72 year old mum decided she loved it too. She bought herself a bottle and wears it to death, unfortunately also during our hot and humid summer when the patchouli becomes cloying and sickly. Now I gag when I smell it and my mum has scored a second bottle of CM from yours truly!

A husband's thought...

I'll make it short and simple.
I bought this for my wife as a gift.
She once told me that she feels really beautiful everytime she wears Coco Mademoiselle. (I am sure that alot of you lady's feel the same as my wife.)
That really meant so much for me coming from my wife.
I'll be buying her this perfume as long as it's available.
I am not saying that she needs a Chanel to be beautiful, because with or without it, my wife will always be the most beautiful woman in my eyes... specially now that she's 4 months pregnant.
I just love being close to my wife everytime she wears this, it's really sexy.

The opening until the middle is simply devine. It says class, sweetness, slightly innocent, elegant at the same time, and definitely make a statement in a reserved manner. However, personally im one of those person that cannot get along well with patchouli and this perfume drydown is screaming it out loud :( i guess its not for me. But anyone who can pull it off, this stuff can easily turn into a holy grail.

I've read so many good reviews for this fragrance. And seriously now, 300+ women calling it their signature scent? They can't all be wrong, can they? So I went to a Chanel store and sprayed the tester on my wrist without hesitation. I thought I was gonna regret doing so, but instead, I FELL IN LOVE. It was stunning, like nothing I have ever smelled before.

Upon spraying, I get mandarin orange and bergamot. Citrus done in such a unique way. It dries down to rose, jasmine, patchouli, and musk. It becomes slightly masculine at this stage, but it actually gives the scent its deep character.

The bottle speaks of pure elegance. Longevity and sillage are unmatched. I live in the tropics and I expected this to get too cloying in the heat, but it developed beautifully. It's not popular around here, so I can wear this out with pride. I expected nothing less from Chanel, and they certainly delivered. Sophisticated yet edgy. This is the very essence of a woman.

Coco mademoiselle is nothing to write home about, if you were there when big sweet scents first hit the market.

It is undeniably pleasant though, and well executed. Sillage and longevity are very good, the scent is not flat, but this is a given with Chanel scents, and at that price I would be sorely disappointed if CM was an exception to the rule.

I enjoyed the advertising campaign, too, but experienced a kind of cognitive dissonance when first sampled the scent. A) the ads make me think of leather, tobacco, citrus; B) there are feistier scents out there.

All in all - I will use my decant, but am not even considering getting attached to it. I will be layering it with one of my favourites, Jil Sander Sun, for an edgier effect.

This one is on the MUST HAVE. It is a citrus feminine dream with a very nice drydown of musk and citrus. I put this one to feel young and sexy. Perfect daywear and emblematic of the sophisticated young woman, maybe in her 30's.

This is not a bad scent although I wished they named it something else. Whenever I see the name "Coco" attached to any of Chanel's fragrances...I just imagine a tweaked version of Coco Chanel. Coco Mademoiselle, the name alone, made me imagine a lighter, sweeter and perhaps more floral version of Coco. Basically, what I was expecting was use the SAME ingredients but just in slightly different quantities (i.e. bringing up the rose, jasmine and toning down the civet) but oh well, marketing is marketing.

Unlike Chance *shudders* and Chance eau Tendre *eye twitch*, this one at least maintains some sophistication but smells like something I would expect from Esteé Lauder. With the exceptions of Youth Dew, Cinnabar and Tuscany per Donna, Esteé Lauder tends to go this route, much like this fragrance (and get many of them to be very pretty but not really something I would imagine someone over 30 wearing). Yes, yes, I know Mademoiselle is also intended for the younger generation but coming from Chanel, I was expecting something VERY different.

Maybe that is my error, setting my expectations so high? Oh, but it is all their fault and a little of mine. They created SO many fragrances in the past with such different personalities so of course I got excited and hopeful with new releases. I really don't like the idea that the last time Chanel impressed me was with its launch of Allure.

On its own, Coco Mademoiselle is by no means offensive, as I've said before, it still maintains some air of sophistication. However, it didn't have that special magic I've enjoyed with a majority of Chanel perfumes.

Grats on whoever woos others with this frag, I'm sure you have quite the body chemistry! As for me, I'll go back to my beloved vintages and wait patiently for something more my style.

Hi Dears,
If You have Loved Coco Mademoiselle, please do not make same mistake than I did; sell it. I had 10 year old bottle in perfect shape, and it was kinda break with Coco Mademoiselle... I thought, I would not need it anymore. Wrong! I had to repurchase, oh, boy I love it still sooo much. There are times it might be year or two on my closet. But then coming again to use. What I was very happy to notice... I didn`t found differences, about reformulations. Its been very same kind all the way. Ty Chanel for that! ***<3<3<3***

I LOVE this scent! It's gorgeous.
It's my favorite fragrance, comforting, youthful but classic-style, elegant, feminine and sophisticated (like all Chanel perfumes).
Perfect for any season and age, I spray it on the back of my neck and it lasts all day.
This is my most complimented scent ever (from men).
Unfortunately it's very popular and I can often smell it but I don't care, I love it and it smells a bit different on everyone.
P.S. No comparison with Lidl perfume! CM is a very high quality scent, amazing and longlasting, Lidl perfume may be similar in the opening, but it's definitely very synthetic, a plastic smell that lasts 5 minutes on your skin.

I actually bought this by mistake. I finally figured out what happened when my sample of Coco arrived, I must have mixed the two up on the smelling strips. So initially I was very disappointed because this isn't my kind of thing at all. But I wore it for a day, and then another, and another and so on until I had to admit that I actually love this stuff.
There's something so fresh about it. I looked through the notes trying to figure out what's so compelling and I don't get it. There's nothing different than in a zillion other perfumes. Honestly, I always think that I smell some kind of melon. I give up.
But it smells very fresh and quite synthetic but it's still obviously excellent quality and I admire how consistent it is. No matter the person or the weather, it always smells the same. The sillage is excellent and it lasts forever.
I like to wear it as a kind of palate cleanser when I've been sampling too much and there's whiffs of all kinds of perfumes on the bedding and all my clothes and my poor nose is overwhelmed and needs a break. A day of this is like a reset. Fresh, uplifting and very beautiful.
Awesome stuff!

i tried this 6 years ago. i didnt like it because the test paper didnt project this enough.

last 13-14 months, this scent became trend at my country. when i walk at streets, i smell this EVERYWHERE. i find attractive and seductive when its on others( even she is on 50's lol). but today, i test it on my skin, here is the results.

the opening is too strong. too old for a mademoiselle. i'm like "but but but but it should be sexy!!" at the first smell. but then, it became the form which i like. but now, it is like very light body lotion(coco chanel stand still on my skin, both sprayed on my skin in same hour)

my fav chanel is allure sensuelle, and i think my opinion will stay the same. i cant understand why this have a lot of fans. elegant, classy, a bit sexy at sometimes, but there is a lot of perfume which have these characteristics( with extra sillage and extra longevity).

So much has been said about this perfume, and I doubt that my review will bring anything new to the table... But, nevertheless, I will share my view on here because I enjoy this fragrance very much, and I really feel like I need to let you all know why!

Coco Mademoiselle is one of the most versatile fragrances that I have ever come across. No matter the occasion, the weather, the outfit – this scent never fails to impress. It's THE perfect 'to go' fragrance. I think that you could easily wear it with a simple t-shirt and jeans, and you won't look or feel underdressed, whilst still smelling lovely and elegant. I feel that many of the Chanel fragrances are too strong and overwhelming, and I'd feel very uncomfortable wearing many of their classics, such as No 5 or Coco Chanel. But I was very happy to discover how modern and approachable Coco Mademoiselle is!

This chypre floral opens very citrusy, with fresh notes of mandarin and orange blossom, softened by sweet jasmine petals. The patchouli note is dominant, and very prominent from start to finish. And although these notes may not seem the most exciting, together they form a beautiful, well blended harmony of accords. I really love how this perfume develops over time – from a bright, citrusy opener to a soft, charming drydown of warm patchouli and rose. The overall scent has a slightly soapy feel to it, and feels very subtle and romantic.

But does Coco Mademoiselle really live up to its hype? Many say it's overrated, and I think that the bar was set really high for Chanel to really deliver here. The extensive marketing campaigns and high anticipations from us perfume lovers meant that many may have ended up slightly disappointed. I personally believe that, although this fragrance does not quite make it onto my 'favourites' shelf, it is by far the best, most approachable Chanel. I really appreciate it for it's incredible versatility, and I think it'd make a lovely addition to any wardrobe!

I wanted to love this so much as Im constantly searching for perfumes with citrus notes. I was so excited to get a whiff of this upon seeing the notes on Fragrantica. Unfortunately, Mademoiselle simply does not work on my skin, it makes me nausea like I am inhaling medicine.
Ive tested N.5 which, frankly to me, smelt like dead animals at first, but half an hour later it developed into a delicate powdery scent, the classic smell everybody looks for. Its a shame that Mademoiselle does not make a turn into anything better than its opening blast.

I only really got into perfumes about two months ago, and was very much at the stage of testing and sampling and blind buying, not really committed to anything in particular. A friend of mine mentioned how the Chloe EDP was her signature scent and I remember being boggled at how restrictive an idea that seemed: why would I just want to wear one perfume when there was a veritable world to choose from out there? At this point I'd already had Dior Hypnotic Poison, Ivoire by Balmain and L'Instant de Guerlain (EDT). I loved Hypnotic Poison and L'Instant (and still do!) but the idea of only wearing one scent and in fact choosing to only wear one scent was still quite inconceivable to me. But one day I was out window shopping with a friend and we saw a Chanel perfume counter. I was planning to get the Chanel Coco EDP sight unseen but then I laid eyes on Coco Mademoiselle and I knew then and there that I had to have it. I'd smelt it off the bottle before but this time I sprayed it on my arm and immediately fell in love with it. I bought a massive bottle on the spot.

Since then, I've bought a few more Chanels and a back-up of my beloved L'Instant but Coco Mademoiselle remains my absolute favourite. I don't know much about notes and such and don't pretend to, but to me, it opens with a delightful, rounded citrus scent which quickly mellows into authentic, unsullied rose. This in turn transforms into what to me is a subtle, almost black tea-scent. I love love love Coco Mademoiselle and fully intend to purchase the 200ml soon (I have the 100ml now). Tonight, this new year's eve, I shall wait for everyone to go to bed and I shall then close the doors of my bedroom and spray myself lavishly with this perfume before I inevitably doze off after what has been a very trying year indeed. I cannot imagine a more perfect (or anti-social!) way to see off this year and welcome the next. Happy new year, all!

So many reviews of this already and they all differ. Personally I love this, but stopped wearing it at the height of its popularity as it felt like every woman I passed had it on.

I've recently gone back to Coco Mademoiselle and it seems to particularly spark attention from men, I receive many compliments when wearing it.

Some people complain about the Patchouli but I think it works well in Coco Mademoiselle.

For me it is a great all round perfume, chic and modern.

I find this pleasant. That's it. I think it's somewhat overrated, definitely overpriced.

It's a typical soapy, powdery, rosey, white floral sort of scent, on me, I actually don't get a lot of citrus at all :/ Not much depth, for me.

What's more, there are a lot of dupes out there that smell very similar (a lot LOT cheaper); Suddenly Madame Glamour from Lidl, for example.

I don't know, maybe this just doesn't work with my skin chemistry.

It is a very good sweet scent with rose and white flowers. It's warm and spiced with patchouli. Quite tender compared to other Chanel's perfumes but just as luxurious. I liked it the most when it was fading away because I sensed lovely mixture of patchouli, musk and vanilla.

Reading through the reviews here, I am once again reminded how personal a scent is. I'm not one to be judgemental in a persons choice. A scent may not work with your chemistry or even your preconceived notions of how others should smell, but we must be respectful of our differences. For me, Coco M blends nicely on my skin, I get many compliments. Very citrusy but just enough warmth to please.

At the beginning it seems to be very powerful, orange blossom fragrance. Rather party fragrance than office one - I thought. But, after an hour, it changes into moderate, sweet & charming fragrance, with floral, well-balanced notes, very pleasant to my nose. However, the most surprise comes after the next hour, when mimose and jasmine start dominating, and base notes start to develop. This fragrance's heart, as well as its base, is so gorgeous, that it is even hard to describe. Ladylike, classy, elegant, subtle, very, very nice... This fragrance won my heart! I think it should be called: Extreme pleasure in a bottle!

Update: I've tested it also in late summer and I have to admit that now I can smell more orange. Still, it is adorable fragrance!

Sorry ladies, but there are many men who don't smell scent the way you do. A strong musk ingredient can apparently smell delightful to some, but to others it usually smells like dusty cat's urine. This perfume is one of those, it hangs around in the air for ages even after you have long gone and sticks in your nose. I have heard others say it smells wonderful but to my nose it smells overpoweringly of old incontinent ladies in a retirement village and I hate it. I try to hold my breath when I am near someone wearing it, and unfortunately it seems to be a popular scent.
So before you go bathing in this perfume, you better ask the honest opinion of those you hope to impress, because you may be unaware that your intentions of impressing a male (or female) may be doing the very opposite.

Has a strong floral and powdery smell at the beginning, but then fades on the skin into a soft vanilla musk.

Personally I LOVE the sweet after smell, but the beginning is a little to strong for my tastes. My husband says it smells to old for someone in their late 20s. I have to agree, it does smell more like someone in their late 30s to 40s.

What can I say about this perfume? Surely everyone has smelled it, whether they know it or not. A true, modern classic. It's very hard to dislike.

For me, this evokes images of a stroll along the boulevards of Paris among the falling Autumn leaves and stopping at a pavement cafe to embrace the crisp morning air.

Top notes of bergamot and mandarins graduate into a rosy, ylang ylang heart and the patchouli enveloped tonka bean heart welcomes the afternoon in. My favourite thing about this fragrance is that the initial feel never fades.

Sophisticated and charming this is the olfactory equivalent of a cashmere scarf.

Coco Mademoiselle (EDP) is an extremely pleasant scent, very likeable and versatile, feminine and sensual...easy to see why it is so popular...yep, I have definitely smelled this on plenty of women. It smells like the sales assistants at high end boutiques and receptionists at 5 star hotels. A modern classic, Coco Mademoiselle says 'I'm friendly, polite, sophisticated, fashion-forward, neat and tidy'. As for the scent itself, it's a wonderful, smooth blend of citrus and floral notes...sweet, warm and fresh, though it does develop abit soapy on me (in a nice way).
I like it, and I prefer the dry-down of this scent to Miss Dior Cherie 2005 (MDC's drydown takes a muskier turn on my skin and I'm not a fan of musk), but CM is just not me, at all, so I will not be purchasing after I use up my sample. MDC however, was my signature a few years back and suited my persona better. I'm actually really relieved that I don't love this scent, it's worn by so many and it's expensive too...so...phew! Sillage is lovely, but it doesn't last long enough on my skin given its price tag (only about 6 hours).

Update: I tried it a 2nd time with 3 full sprays, it seriously lasted over 12 hours on me, and I could still smell it strongly. Unfortunately it also gave me a slight dull headache the rest of the day. It went from 'meh' to 'dislike' for me. I changed my mind about it's drydown as well, I definitely prefer MDC to this. I still think it smells nice enough on others though.

I hated this perfume before cause the top note has a weird smell to me. When I bought Chanel Chance Eau Tendre, the lady gave me some little samples including this Mademoiselle, so I gave it a try on my wrist and I still hated it... but surpringly 10mins later, the scent turned into a master piece! I kept sniffing on my wrist, IT SMELLS AMAAAaaaZING! I'm definitely gonna buy this as a Christmas gift for myself! =D

I bought this for my wife as a Christmas present. She fell in love with it. It has very good sillage & longevity is very decent as well. I can still smell it on her after 8++ hrs. coming from work and she never reapplies. I love the fact that when she's wearing it almost everyone notices how nice it smells. I guess it's hard not to like it. It's very pleasant and works its way very smoothly dominated by a sweet rose scent. This one time we ate in this restaurant, the waitress couldn't help but ask what my wife was wearing. We told her and she replied that she already knew what it was. Maybe she just wants to know what she'd smell like if she was wearing it. Thumbs all the way up for this great fragrance.

I just bought those for my mom and boy this juice is strong! I would describe it as all-seasons perfume, probably the best for woman there is. The strong citrus opening goes to sweet and warm and lasts for long long hours. I can smell those in whole house, but it is not a scent I would want to get rid of, I want tosmell it forever! Ladies, go buy yourself one of those, you won't regret it!

Well I'm male and I got a sample of this for grins and giggles.

Surprisingly, after spritzing myself with it, my balls did not fall off!

I have to say that it smelled rather nice, like something a woman of high standing would wear (of any age.)

If it weren't for the strong rose note, it'd make a nice unisex perfume that I'd love to wear.

Very nice 8/10.

The story behind by coco mademoiselle purchase is one I had never shared before. It was a day in late June with my head thick with many challenging thoughts. I had been on a recent dating spree determined to be strong and "get myself out there" after a hard breakup I had experienced. Ironically the only guy I did have feelings for made me so nervous I kept trying to push him away.
It was then at work that it dawned on me that I was only running away from my problems and feelings, no strength in that.
On my break from work I somehow found myself standing in front of coco mademoiselle, totally allured by it's upfront, classy, and definitive scent. I bought it right then and sprayed some on. I felt inspired so I texted all the guys I had been dating. I was done and was ready to start truly being strong. I regret nothing.

It may just have been my experience by coco mademoiselle to me is a powerful & ladylike scent. Coco Mad is a woman of class, poise, and tenderness. If she were a real person I'm sure she would always get her way with charm and a coy smile.
The opening starts with a very citrusy, slightly soapy floral, and sexy musky skin sort of ballad. I don't think this is a comparison Coco Mad get's a lot but to me it smells beachy. Like Coco Mad is in her cute polka dot bathing suit at the beach, reclined in her chair, with a cigarette in her mouth.
The dry down of the scent smells like soapy aldehydes, lady like florals, sexy skin musk, bites of patchouli, warm tonka bean, french attitude, and smoked vanilla.
Incredibly popular at no surprise this perfume truly represents Chanel quality and lasts all day. A bottle in my wardrobe I always feel proud to have and worth every dang penny.

This is a perfume for all ages. It is CLASSY. When you put a spritz on your ready for your day. Its refreshing yet also it has a warm feel to it. Many chanel perfumes are very strong and hard to like but I think that this is one that should be tried if you want to feel warm and fresh

I have Been wearing coco mademoiselle as my signature perfume for the last 2/3 years. Everyone writes here it is a bomb sillage And very long lasting but I could not smell it on me so I could not Believe in it's Huge power( despite knowing we get used to perfumes And can not smell it on us as others can, I thought it had soft sillage And moderate lasting power, And was allways complaining about that)....

Today I worked with a colleague who was wearing coco mademoiselle, I had another perfume on (narciso Rodriguez edp) ...everytime she mooved I would get strong clouds of perfume. We worked from 10am until 18pm , she didn't even reaplied more perfume! surreal I was completelly surprised ! AS for me, my narciso Rodriguez I sprayed it 2 times during those hours And she still couldn't get any sillage from me:( not fair

DEspite all This, I didn't loved coco mademoiselle on her, it felt so harsh not the soft or sweet coco mademoiselle I had in my mind...IT felt overwellming IT Even made me headache!

After years of lusting, I finally managed to get my hands on the big bottle of this beauty! For the first couple of minutes, the opening is a little sharp with the citrus, but this quickly fades. On my skin, the middle notes are bypassed and the fragrance heads straight for the gorgeous drydown. Classic Chanel patchouli, tonka, vanilla, and just a hint of musk make for a warm, sweet, sensual combination that I just can't get enough of. Sillage and longevity are great! This is classy, elegant, beautiful, and a little bit sexy all at once. Perfect for women of all ages, although I think women in their 20s might go for this more than others. This is an all-seasons, all-occasions fragrance, perfect for a day of classes or a date night equally (although I might avoid it on hot summer days). The woman who wears this is chic, confident, and always looks effortlessly put together no matter where she is or what she's doing. I will repurchase again and again.

After years of neglecting, I finally decided to give CM a chance, and I got the smallest bottle, to see where it leads.
I'm not a typical chypre fan, I'm not a huge rose fan, but I adore CM. Coco Madmoiselle is a pure heaven, classy feminine scent for a romantic determined woman. It's bold and fragile at same time. I can't distinguish individual notes so well but I can easily say it simply smells divine. Youthful and mature at the same time, CM is a love at first sight, and I know it's not just infatuation. CM is the missing part. Simply, it captures the essence of feminity.

I usually really dislike patchouli, but this smells really good. I've been wanting to buy a bottle for a long time, but I always end up buying something else instead. I guess it's a little too popular for me right now, as I live in a small borough in Pittsburgh, and I swear every woman/teenager owns this in my area. I smell it all the time while I'm out, or just in passing-but I love it and never get sick of it. This is probably the only Chanel frag I like enough to want to buy as well. I think I will wait a few years when it fades out a little bit. Call me pretentious, but I like unique perfumes. I feel like its my little "secret," though I have no problem telling ppl what I'm wearing. But yes, Coco Mademoiselle is really nice and womanly. I always spray this any time I'm at Macy's. it's my guilty patchouli plleasure.

Powder, that was my first thought. And then tonka beans or maybe opoponax. The scent is absolutely divine. It seems you can never go wrong with a Chanel. Hell, I was raised on them. But I had other ideas as a teen. I became an independent. A hippie. I believed in free will, free-thinking and free spirits. Which is probably why I am such a firm believer in addressing all levels of perfumes. I've met women from so many places who, in their lives, can only dream of owning a bottle of Chanel. Those of us who do, should greatly appreciate what we have before us. But always understand there are perfumes greater than this and perfumes lesser than this house, also. It is only a commodity in the wide world of fragrances. It is only a name, and should never be judged solely by that.
Sweet florals knock on the door to say hello and ask to visit, sweet patchouli barges in and stays, all the while powdering her nose, drinking her Chai tea. Where are these ladies? In a dusty cabin in the early Spring. A cabin that has yet to cleaned from last Summer's visitors. It's a bit dank in the cabin, the windows haven't been opened for months. It's musty. It's a place they all enjoy and have pleasant memories of and every season brings a different flavor to the structure. Sometimes pleasant, sometimes not, but it's always a roof over their heads. So they keep coming back. These are my images of Coco Mademoiselle.
And yes, Chanel's Coco Mademoiselle will do that to people. Draw you back for visits time and time again. That's what Chanel is about once you reside with these perfumes. You find yourself re-visiting them season-by-season. They're as classic and staid as a log cabin in the woods. They simply belong there. But one doesn't spend all season in that cabin. Just as one shouldn't spend all their time with only one perfume.
Multifariousness is what makes one unique and opens ones eyes to the world. Diversity allows you to see and appreciate minute differences. I haven't met a Chanel I don't appreciate for its variances, but I've also learned to appreciate a less costly perfume made with well intentions because of it.

As another reviewer stated, I used to wear this, but now with still half the bottle left I find it a little too sharp for my taste and feel a disconnect between the scent and *me*. I think it is probably to do with it being the perfume of choice for so many other ladies - with good reason, it is very elegant and feminine. But having smelled it on so many others, it doesn't make *me* feel *special* when I wear it. That is not to say, however, that I don't still appreciate it when a passerby's Coco Mademoiselle wafts around me, for nostalgia sees me inhaling a little deeper :).

Though it's a beautiful perfume, easy to wear at mostly any age, time or place, Coco Mademoiselle reminds me of others. Beautiful and very pleasant (actually made to please anyone, i'm thinking) and yet, it will never steal my heart, never will become my signature scent. This was my first Chanel experience, not a dissapointing one but not overwhealming either.

I used to really love Coco Mademoiselle. It was my "signature scent" a while ago. But I just don't feel the same way about it anymore.
It's very SHARP, almost men's-cologne-like and way, way too popular and common. I smell this everywhere and I just don't really like it anymore.

The way perfume can change depending on your hormones and/or the weather will never cease to amaze me.

I busted this out again today as I haven't worn it in months now. Over the last couple of years, every time I've worn this I have regretted putting it on. Mademoiselle and Miss Dior Cherie seem to turn into rotten Strawberry and nothing more on my skin - and it's messy and offensive enough to have me scrubbing it off in the shower as quick as I can!

That's not the story today though. The weather is warm and humid - and Mademoiselle, for once, is actually working it's magic for me! There is NO Strawberry note at all :) Not ripe and definitely not rotten!! And I am SO grateful for that!

On my skin, this is predominantly Patchouli and Orange - and in this weather, it's just lovely. As time goes on, the beautiful yet simple Rose note joins the Patchouli and Orange and it makes for such a sophisticated, classy yet not loud Summer perfume. I will be honest, I do not get ANY of the other notes listed - but I'm really enjoying the simple concoction of the 3 notes I've listed above.

I'm not at the point of loving this by any means, nor will I buy another bottle when mine runs out...but I no longer dislike it and I appreciate that it's just one of those perfumes that love me some days and hate me others (like TM's Angel hahaha).

Sillage, projection and longevity are all pretty decent - projection isn't as BIG as I remember it being but that's OK. Seems to last a good 4-5 hours on my skin. So for those of you who tried it and didn't like it, my advice would be to give it another go when the Season changes :)

This review has an amusing story to it. I was given a beautiful gift set of this fragrance for Christmas 2011. I had been dropping hints about wanting COCO, as my bottle of COCO was getting low... I moved a few months later, and packed up my perfumes and stored them in an air-conditioned closet. I didn't realize I didn't get COCO until the other day when I finally took the bottle out of the gift box to wear it and the perfume was PINK, not amber. I didn't want CM because it is too popular, too mainstream, while I think COCO to be a classic. Well, now that I owned it, I tried it...it is very nice, indeed. I wore it to church on Sunday and got a few compliments. CM is safe, but not AMAZING. This is truly a perfume that surely smells wonderful on any woman of any age. This is rather like going to a wedding and seeing another guest with the exactly the same lovely dress you are wearing at the reception. Beautiful but redundant. Ideally, I would like to wear a perfume that is either an iconic masterpiece, or something that is very unusual. This is very hard to do, because I seem to like what everybody else does! Wearing a classic masterpiece is easy if I can afford it...but the unusual is harder to do.

EDP - one of those fragrances you have to lightly spritz at arm's length. Applied in a suffuse mist, it's a rich citrus floral with a dry tea note; followed by a sweetish "men's cologne" patchouli that, in the right weather, has anisic undertones.

Spray one molocule too much though, and it's a toxic saccharine marshmallow that will linger for hours.

While I cannot say Coco Mademoiselle is a masterpiece, I find that it is one of the easiest fragrances to wear. Perfume is generally very emotional for me, and I often have to be in a particular mood to wear even some of my most favourite ones.

Coco Mademoiselle is wonderfully OKAY. It is a scent I enjoy, without being one I love so much that I attach memories and feelings to it. It is my go-to fragrance when I just want to smell pretty and am not looking to amplify or suppress any mood. I think the reason why this perfume is so popular is because it is so normal, nothing too out there.

It does fit into that Chanel mold of vaguely citrusy floral with a powdery base (which I love - I adore les parfums chez Chanel), and it does smell rather elegant, but I find it is one of Chanel's less awe-inspiring fragrances. If you find that many Chanel fragrances are overpowering or too 'different' then Mademoiselle might be the easiest wear for you.

Though I wear it quite often, I somewhat resent that it is so mainstream. Many women wear it and many women recognize it. SO MANY TIMES someone has turned to me and said "Coco Mademoiselle, right?". I am slightly uncomfortable with being so... OBVIOUS.

I smelt this perfume on my English teacher three years ago, I am now graduating in two weeks and have decided to finally buy the perfume I've waited three years to buy! I actually bought Miss Dior Cherie at the beginning of this year, but I still knew I wanted Chanel's flawless concoction of classy notes. The silage and longevity is the best I have ever come across, and the break down of notes is just unforgettable! This perfume is way too beautiful to ignore, I went all out and bought the 100ml bottle for $214! Totally worth it! Yes, many people own this but you can work this to your own individual self! :)

I love this one, but it does tend to get a little screechy and every girl, aunt and her dentist has a bottle of this juice. I caught whiffs of this all the time around college, and I still occasionally catch whiffs of it when I'm running around town. It's perfumey. It doesn't pretend to be a "skin" scent like a number of other fragrances out there. There's an air of sophistication to it, and I enjoy smelling it.

But that's exactly what prevents me from calling it a favorite of mine even though I love it; it's so overworn

A most beautiful, elegant perfume that is unique, and there is no other perfume like it. I love it, love it, love it. There is one issue and its with it's branding, calling it Channel Coco "Mademoiselle" - meaning Miss, Young Lady. ( Similar to Dior Mademoiselle). Although any woman can wear any fragrance, that fact that "Mademoiselle" is in its branding sways mature women away. Otherwise, the scent is phenomenal and a winner!!!

I might be going crazy but to me this is not a t all very feminine. I have Coco Mademoiselle on one arm and Narciso Rodriguez for Him Musc Collection on the other and they seem almost the same, of course there some sort of berries in the NR, I mean, not the same smell, but the feeling is the same: a sweet fragrance, but not very heavy. If we say that one of them is a feminine scent, the other must be as well.

It starts with a burst of citrus, yes, but it goes to patchoulli and jasmin rather quickly, and less sweet. There is something a little minty at this stage, and orange reminds me of an Hermes scent. I can smell some of the neroli giving a clean and masculine vibe. Vetiver and tonka and orange definetly reminds me of a more subdue terre d'Hermes EDT. Just a hint of the flint, warm rock smell and we all be there.

I am new to Chanel women's scents but after No 5 Eau Premiere and Coco noir, it is easy to see the DNA of the house. Also Allure pour Homme raises his hand a little in CM. The floral accord is so faint that I am having really a hard time to accept Coco Mademoiselle as an entirely female scent. No rose for me at all, and I am very fond of it on Egoiste, for example.
It is hot here in Brazil going on to our "Spring" time, and Coco Mademoiselle seems to be a skin scent?
The only problem with these Chanel women's scent is how can one tell that's what I am wearing? If Chanel did what Annick goutal does, putting the same juice onto different bottles for men and women, a lot of guys would wear them without much question about waht is what. It is still quite minty, what is it, that gives a mentol feeling?

Ok, so what has happened to CM?
It's def watered down and more on the citrus side and in the drydown it's sweeter.
I remembered CM as a killer scent - longlasting with great sillage but now it's totally different.
CM is so quiet and shy.

And lasting power is weak, about 3 hours!
I just can't believe they reformulated such an iconic scent.

Several years ago, when I was more naive about perfumes, I took off the cap of a tester, smelled it and thought-Yuk. A couple years ago I smelled a sample in a magazine and wondered if something had changed or not because it smelled so different from what I smelled from the bottle. So I went to the store and sprayed some on myself and let it sit. It was then that I fully realized that perfumes can change significantly from the bottle to the drydown on skin. Now, this is one of my favorites.

The first hit is awfully generic to me, like the cheapest drugstore cologne with a fading pop star on the label. Over time it shows its true pedigree as it develops into a lasting, complicated ode to femininity. Not for me. I like to smell more unique.

Classy, ellegant, sexy. Citrus, floral and sweet white blend together perfectly make this fragrance so beautiful and luxurious.

Smells like beautiful mature woman, sexy but not in cheap way.

Yes, I also think it is very stong at first, but hour and hour later it will soften into amazing white floral with rose with a hint on tea. Vague, but continually present. lovely.

I feel very special when wearing it. Not my daily frag, for special occasion only.

After a very citrusy and zesty opening (I don't love it, as in another favorite of mine: Magnolia Nobile), it turns into a beautiful, amazing, elegant triumph of flowers, a little spicy, with a lovely and warm patchouli drydown with a hint of musk, vanilla and vetiver.
I don't get the sweet side of this scent, maybe becouse of my body chemistry, but I find it gorgeous.
As light as a petal says the ad, it's absolutely true.
I LOVE it (it's my signature) even though it's a bit too popular.
It draws lots of compliments! Men appreciate this scent ;-)
This is a modern classic, very sophisticated.
One of the best perfumes around, I never get tired of this beauty.

This perfume makes me understand what different body chemistries do with perfumes. I got this after reading the positive reviews. I just wanted to try it so badly. I am a blind buy kinda person so I just bought it online without even knowing what it would smell like.

I honestly do like it but I wouldn't go so far as to say I love it. It smells fresh and clean with a tiny bit of sweet. It doesn't waft itself to my nose willingly as some other perfumes do. I have to stick my nose into my blouse to smell it. It does last a while on me though. I don't know how else to describe it. I think I'll devote this one to spring time when I'm wearing my little spring dresses and sandals. That's what it reminds me of.

This is my first review on here and I cannot pretend to have an educated nose when it comes to perfumes. I'll only comment on my thoughts on this fragrance as I wear it today.
I've had Channel perfumes before but I never end up using them. I guess I'm just not sophisticated enough? I can appreciate the complexity of Coco Mademoiselle, and the longevity! Gosh it lasts and lasts. I keep getting very pleasant wafts as I move but if I actually sniff my wrist, I do not like it much, too spicy and balmy for my tastes. I think this fragrance is best suited to women who want to impress corporate clients, who feel confident and urban. It exudes confidence and to me, it feels very grown-up and self assured. At 43, I don't feel grown up enough for it! It does not smell like a mademoiselle to me at all. Bottom line is, I think, that I like a perfume that makes me sigh and smile and this definitely does not. It is not unpleasant, but definitely it is not for me.

I'm 200% sure Chanel had this reformulated or watered/thined down. No point buying this perfume with that kind of price tag. If you still love this kind of smell, get Chanel Chance or the more amber, Miss Dior Le Parfum.

Like Dior, they trained their staff keep on saying they NEVER change their perfumes, absolutely lying to the customers like me.

Got a nice little sample in a mixed lot,and while the patchouli had me hesitant,I must admit I like this scent. It is very well blended,and that is to be expected.It is Chanel after all.
It does start off incredibly sharp,my nose was stinging a bit,but I waited,and soon enough,this beautiful,warm spicy scent enveloped me,and I was quite surprised by how well the patchouli went with the other notes,it did overwhelm me at first,but I am beginning to really like patch,when it's done right. it is definitely done right here.
I do get the similarities between this and Miss Dior Cherie,but I agree MDC is sweeter,which I prefer.
I think,if I had to choose,I would go with the Dior,as I do like the sweetness there,but it is a classy scent,and I definitely recommend. The sillage was amazing,2 sprays and I was set,with a nice cloud of scent surrounding me,but not enough to kill anyone.I also got 10+ hours on those same two sprays.Definitely worth the Chanel name and price!

petravlb Coco Mademoiselle will never be discontinued it has become a classic just like J`adore Dior and Chanel N°5 and its the 2nd highest selling fragrance right behind Chanel N°5 so words speak for them self about this fragrance it must be dam good if it has become so successful and that's why so many women around the world call this their signature fragrance the only down is that it is pretty pricey.
saying that Coco Mademoiselle will get discontinued is like saying Chanel N°5 will be getting discontinued and i don't ever see that happening or any time soon.

This perfume is amazing. This is perfume that is well made, and who's notes work perfectly together. Like all of the chanel perfumes I have tried, when first sprayed this has a rather sharp smell, but soon settles down into something great. When the notes settle on my skin I get all the citrus top notes, with just a little vanilla coming through to add a nice sweet balance. After a few hours, the tonka bean and vanilla take over creating a lovely creamy scent. I love this, it's brilliant

I'm so excited to write the review for coco mademoiselle, haha I can't believe that I'm able to own one now. Thanks so much to my dear lovely baby hun, he knew that Chanel perfume is on my wanted list all along. It just that looking at the price for it in Singapore, I just couldn't bear to spend on it. So, my dear boy bought it for me as an early anniversary gift ^.^

Haha after all the mushy mushy words, back to the smell for mademoiselle now :) This smell so heavenly, totally different from all the perfume that I have. I have never been to Paris before, but when I spray this on me (just a spray will do). Oh dear, Is like I'm wearing those designer clothes/bag and walking on the street of Paris. This is a very classy perfume. Well, but I rem the first time trying it. I nearly get choke by it lol, I'm still wondering what's that lol (it happen to me on Burberry Brit too). There is this very sharp smell for the 1st spray, very powerful type. Wah, but after u let it settle on your skin, the heavenly part from this perfume will start to grow on your nose.

Hmm heard that its been reformulated? Some reviewers were saying that, it become more watery compared to previously. I don't know as I never smell it the previous one, I love this version a lot. Maybe it become kinda fade after an hr, I'm able to keep smelling on my wrist still. My latest top fragrance <3

I want to love this perfume, and indeed there are many wonderful things about it...
But when I spray it on...it's SHARP!! Oh, my nose! It burns! Goodness me. I have a fondness for softer scents with a "rounded" feel. Coco Madamoiselle is not that, sadly. A friend gave me a 30 percent full bottle about seven months ago. This is a scent I would wear with a sharp suit and designer heels. It's pert, perky, confident, STRONG; and obviously, a high-quality fragrance. Ultimately, the orange blossom note kills it on my skin; that note nearly always turns soapy and sharp on me. I recommend giving Madamoiselle a try; nice perfume, just not too nice on me.

I just got a bottle of it and it's superb! This is the highest quality of perfume you could find in the market. You can feel it in the balance of all the ingredients, neither of the notes is overpowering the others.

I must say that it is very very similar, almost identical to Miss Dior eau de toilette (which I own as well), but even more refined.

Coco Mademoiselle reminds of colder times when I got it late autumn and can stll recall the chily early mornings with zesty orange, sweet vanlla, patchouli, chypre and flowing creamy-like scent I was wearing. Chypre is the heart of Chanel, especally in Coco Mademoiselle it enwraps you in its warm embrace.
Citrus and rose actually make it lighter but on the other hand patchouli and ylang-ylang bring you down to earth. It's very fruity and juicy at the first spray but develops with and by the time it settles down. All that tonka bean and vanilla add sweetness in the very right proportion, musk makes it linger on your skin for a looong long while and patchouli is one of my favourite bases.
The frangrance at the dry down actually reminds me of fresh tobacco leaves, don't get it wrong, it's in a good way. We used to put some leaves in between the clothes so the moths would not get there.

Love at first sight, something about this makes me feel like Cinderella going on her first date! It's so enchanting and classy, similar to Burberry Brit and Body put together but with that woody/musky dry down that lasts forever on my skin. Brit has a vanilla touch to it and Body is more of a strong scent at first, Mademoiselle is the two of these combined but more gentle and suitable for the fall and winter seasons. Keep in mind that most Chanel fragrances have a strong opening at first, therefore I only recommend two sprays. I've walked past women who spray way too much and it just doesn't smell pleasant.

I bought my Coco Mademoiselle during a brief transit in Singapore to Cambodia. Naturally, I wanted to try wearing it as soon as I am allowed to rip it out of the duty free sealed bag, and so I did. I sprayed my Coco Mademoiselle for the first time in the morning before my excursion to Angkor Archeological Park. Guess what? I couldn't have picked more perfect timing.

Around 11 AM, as I walked among the ruins of Angkor, slightly sweaty from the heat, I suddenly smelled this very feminine, elegant and exotic scent from patchouli and mango, which I hadn't realized at first to be mine. It probably had something to do with body chemistry, but Coco Mademoiselle somehow evolved--she made friend with the sun and body temperature, and together they decided to throw me a pleasant holiday gift.

The day went by, and I did not give it more thought. But as my tuktuk pulled over for sunset, and wind swept over me, again I was caught off guard by this warm and welcoming scent of significantly fainter trace of patchouly, and--much to my pleasure--musk and vetiver. At the end of the day, I was so surprised by how well a French perfume went together with ancient Eastern ruin. But then I realize that they speak the same language--of elegance, finesse, timeless grace, and happier times.

Although the consensus seemed to agree that Coco Mademoiselle is more of a spring/summer fragrance, I beg to disagree. I live in tropical climate, and Coco Mademoiselle so far has been a very pleasant companion for my daily activities, save for the overly humid day. In conclusion, it's not heat that annoys Coco Mademoiselle, it's humidity. She loves sun, but she hates sweating because it ruins her gracefulness.

There was vanilla dry down as well, which I usually despise, but for Coco Mademoiselle, I am willing to negotiate with my vanilla aversion. And although this fragrance was originally made for younger clientele, it carries enough sophistication to make it suitable for active, career women of all ages.

Loving Chanel scents Chance Eau Fraiche, Chance Eau Tendre, and Allure, I was prepared to be swept away by CM. IT didn't work for me. I got screeching chypre and nothing more. No sweetness ANYWHERE in the dry down. I wonder if my new bottle has gone off? Can't find any of the joy others experienced in this fragrance, and none of the notes.

I am not saying that Mademoiselle is a bad perfume, because it is not. There is nothing disturbing about it and I think you can get away with wearing this scent in the strictest of offices. But for me, that is not necessarily a good thing. I own this scent and I do wear it but I find that the only time I reach for this scent is when I feel uninspired and don't want to waste my "good" perfumes.

See, I like to match my scent with whatever mood I'm in (or what mood I want to be in). And Mademoiselle just does not awake any feelings at all to me. It just smells fresh and perfumy.

So this is my "not so special occasion" perfume. I wear it when I know nothing exiting is going to happen and just want to smell.. Nice. Because it really is nice. But nothing more.

On my skin it smells like an expensive shower gel. Citrusy, fresh and powdery. I don't think anyone would find this scent offensive.
I like a bit more "umph" to my perfumes. However this was a blind buy (I fell in love with the bottle, lol!) and I am not at all disappointed. Yes, I do find this scent a tad boring but it is a great staple to have for those days when you don't wanna have to think about it, just spray something on and be out the door. I find that it works great all year round.
I will repurchase this when it runs out.

I also think it could be great for layering if you want to freshen up a heavier perfume. :)

Hi guys, first of all I really love this perfume and so does my mom. It smells great on her as well, surely a little different due to body chemistry but nevertheless amazing. This said I don't believe in age limitation for perfume :)

Coco Mademoiselle is in my opinion a unique scent that fits many occassions and is always classy but also comforting. But it is also very known so you won't have the mystery effect what you're wearing because until now many people will now. So if you want to stand out with a perfume not many people might have, you have to digg a little deeper :)

I wanted to treat myself with a new bottle lately but as we all know Chanel perfumes are very expensive. And since I just moved spending 70 Euro for a small bottle did not seem very smart. BUT yesterday I discocvered an interesting article on a dupe called Suddenly Madame Glamour from the supermarket group Lidl. Now don't laugh! I searched and read further and some people were really crazy about it (even John Bailey from the Perfumers Guild stated that it's a good one),so I thought I have to find one bottle and see for myself. After work I visited a Lidl nearby and bought a 50 ml bottle for 5 Euro. Nothing to loose, right? I first sprayed on paper and thought "yes, this is good". After I sprayed some on my skin I let it settle for a few minutes, sniffed and was amazed as well. I put it on today and so far I'm really happy with it! If you like to try it out as well - pay Lidl and visit :) Maybe that's a good alternative for some of you or maybe to carry around as a pick me up to save the expensive liquid for special times.

I just can not smell it on myself intensively...i just cant..and it's frustrating!!
Am I spraying too much??...Is my nose just not picking it up or is it getting nose fatigue??
Anyone else facing this...??
Although, if I do not think about...i do keep on getting whiffs of the fragrance...but i can not smell it directly where I sprayed it...

This is what I call a "sexy spicy" scent. I have read other reviews with people who get a citrus notes from this perfume, but not with body chemistry. I tend to get more of the white musk notes with a touch of sweetness. The longevity is WONDERFUL. Just a light spray on each wrist in the morning, and the scent will still be there at bedtime. A very classy, sexy scent!

On opening Coco Mademoiselle is bursting with juicy, zesty and fresh citrus. The sweet and earthy patchouli is largely present right throughout on my skin, but it isn't overbearing at any point. The florals are sweet, delicate and soft.

Then there is the sugary sweetness of what must be the mimose..

The really cool thing about this fragrance (to me anyway) is that it morphs from a lovely, sweet, citrusy chypre floral to a spicy oriental after about ten hours. The vetiver and opponax linger on my skin for ages - love it.

This is my first Chanel and it's beautiful.. All class. Amazing, complex perfume!

My signature in the sense that this is the scent I use most frequently by far! The perfect everyday scent. I just adore all the orange!!! Fresh without beeing boring and flat. Distinctive with an outgoing personality. Not for shrinking violets. ;-)

Usually I prefer "Classics" like Shalimar, Fracas, L'heure Bleue, Arpege, but this is a "modern" classic that I am sure will be around for a long time. :-)

Update: I think I am beginning to like it. Very much. So much that I decided to put my other fumes aside and give this one a go. It's summer and I like the citrus and the orange smell in this season. Maybe trying it in the right season is the key. First I tried it in late autumn, and I thought it was way too strong. But now it's the right sillage and strength and I love it.

I thought of an almost artificial scent, but not candy sweet, that was a little stifled by something waxy. At first, it's the outer layers of the orange (orange peel/bergamot) and it is blended well. The rose is dominant, but it doesn't have the freshness I would expect and one couldn't probably determine that is a rose; sort of a rose as its petals begin to wilt, and then a mixture of vanilla and wax. I didn't detect the jasmine, perhaps it was overpowered. It has settled on the back of my wrist for an hour and a half now. The scent is definitely common. Unfortunately, I don't see myself wearing it. It is pleasant. It reminds me of vintage furniture somehow. Perhaps, it is the patchouli that adds to the fermented and aged furniture (which in its own way can be comforting, I suppose). I can also describe it as mute, yet aromatic (and long-lasting, admirable sillage). The scent reminds me of infants and grandmothers, because of its balminess which can be reminiscent of baby powder. It also reminds me of ripe fruits/florals/booze muted by wax. I tried the EDP, by the way. I'd rate it 7.5 out of 10.

This is one of those few perfumes that is so well crafted that I can hardly pick out the individual notes, they blend so beautifully together. It truly smells like it's worth the £90 you will have to spend to own this beauty!
It may be a classic, but there is no grandma factor here. It is young, but not juvenile. Ladylike, rather than girly. After all a "mademoiselle" is an unmarried lady.
Pure class!

I was underwhelmed by this one. I know it's Chanel, and I love Allure, but this is just not doing it for me. It's mostly orange blossom and patchouli and gets muskier in the drydown. It wasn't as sweet as I expected (despite perfumes often turning sweet on my skin), and I didn't get much vanilla (which is good). It's not that I dislike it - it's just that there are other perfumes out there which are either fresher or sexier or prettier or more elegant. I just can't place this fragrance - I don't know what it is trying to do.

That said, I'll probably try it again to be sure. And for a fragrance aimed at younger women I do think it is a lot better than many other overly sweet 'youth' fragrances.

I remember being taught in English lessons at school to never describe anything in writing as 'nice'. 'Nice' is a vapid word that conveys no meaning. It adds nothing to the narrative, it's anticlimactic, it's boring.
Coco Mademoiselle is 'nice'. But that's about all I can say about it. You could wear it to the office, and someone would think 'she smells nice'. It's inoffensive, pretty, safe, and neat. I can't criticise it, but I can't get excited about it either.

Coco Mademoiselle is one of my favorite fragrances. I started wearing this when I was in my early twenties and I have not stopped since. It is pricey but worth every penny. I recently bought the limited edition 200mL bottle and I am pleased. The scent lasts all day and I get compliments every time I wear it. A little goes a long way. This is a sexy fragrance that anyone can wear.

I wanted to like this because I like Coco and Chanel perfumes in general, but there's something in it that on my body turns very sickly sweet floral in a short period of time, and gives me a very bad headache. Whatever it is is in a lot of modern perfumes (Tommy Girl has a lot of it) and I have to be very careful to wear perfume for a while before I buy it because whatever it is makes the perfume unwearable for me.

i really like this fragrance. I always get alot of compliments on it. and i think i just smell sexy when i wear it. its similar to miss dior but wayyy less sweet. definitely classier in my opinion. im a model and ive noticed when I wear this photographers always feel like i give better shots. it must be a compliment thing. my husband loves this smell, he always mentions that I smell nice when i use it, even when ive sprayed it in the morning and he hasnt seen me since he gets home from work at 6. it starts out very feminine but then the masculine dry down is very sexy as well. very well blended there is no part of the sent that is overpowering.

I'm a big Chanel fan, and I want to love their perfumes, but it's just not happening.

I went through a bottle of Chanel Chance, and it took me years to finish.

My mother is a big fan of Coco Mademoiselle, and although I always had access as a teenager to it, it never appealed to me.

Far too musky and serious for my taste.

I was given a bottle of Coco Mademoiselle recently, and wore it for maybe a week straight before throwing in the towel and giving it to a friend who would appreciate it more.

I know it's not the way it settles on my skin that I dislike because I do find I am more partial to it once it has been on my skin for a little while, and when my friend is around me now wearing it, I still do not care for it on her either.

I can't quite describe what it is, it's just old and musky and totally unflirty and unsexy to me.

I know Coco Chanel wasn't about being those things though, so maybe that's the point?

I'm so sad that this perfume is used by so many people! It really is similar to Dior, but not as fresh. It has it's own way of combining powdery fresh and patchouli sweet. If you're looking for a statement fragrance this can be it but for me it's too commonly used.

I like this scent. It has that sexy womanly, mysterious, and iviting smell. What I like about most of the Channel perfumes is you can tell they actually put time and effort into them as if they themselves would wear them. I only wear scents that would be considered "sexy" and this is deffinitaly one of them. If you want to smell amazing and expensive this is the one to buy

ooohhhhh.....Mon Dieu!!!

Admittedly, I had purposely tried to avoid trying out this so so so much-hyped up and advertised scent.....and after finally giving this lady a whirl (both on paper test strip, THEN on me....) all I can humbly offer is what the HELL was I thinking???!!!!!!

This scent DESERVES EVERY BIT of the hype and attention that she has garnered....I was terrified of the the patchouli note in the frag, and discovered that on my chemistry, it is thank goodness just barely noticeable.....

This is a true work of art for Chanel. Never have I smelled such an exquisite balance of notes, all working in perfect harmony.....from the clementine to the jasmine, to the soft wet woods, moss and grass, and vetiver, rose and cream, this little miss just continues to suprise and delight in every stage, from the very opening, to the glorious end....bright, sparkling, flirty yet still very sophisticated, like the finest and most luxurious pink champagne!!!!

And I just beg all who read this to above all, do NOT let yourself be fooled or limited by her name.....this little lady suits every woman from the 20yr old on her way to her first big interview, to a 60yr old seeing Paris for the very first time....

Expensive though this lady is, sometimes in life it rings true- you indeed get what you pay for! For this bargain-hunter chick, I can most defintely say that I will happily make sure the funds are perpetually available for me to keep a supply of this lady on hand at all times!

Si Bonne, Mademoiselle! xoxoxo

I wanted to test Coco Mademoiselle for a long time and I am so happy I can say, that I adore the smell. At first I smelled some citrusy notes, which I didn't like that much, but oh my God, the heart notes are just amazingly put together. The first thing I think of, when I smell it, is almond in sugar. To me it is just the same. What a pleasant feminine perfume! It's so sensual, elegant and warm on my skin.

Although Chanel perfumes are so expensive, I still think I will buy this one for Fall season. Mademoiselle is probably not an every-day perfume for me, but I will sure enjoy wearing it on special occasions. Also the longevity is incredibly good.

GREETINGS FROM THE CZECH REPUBLIC! :)

This is such a beautiful scent and very classic. I love that it is a tiny bit masculine. I feel like a queen when I wear it. I think that any woman can wear it and it will suit anybody so perfectly. I can highly recommend it. I have never met another woman wearing it for some reason so I suppose it is very exclusive.
One of my favourite scents but unfortuneately I have worn it too much and grown a little immune to it, but I suppose that others can smell me.

No doubt, Chanel N°5 is timeless, while this is flawless! Polge is indeed a true perfume alchemist. The patchouli note could just be like any other patchouli scent, so does orange as well as rose, etc, but in here, all notes have somehow fulfilled their purpose by becoming the most remarkable fragrance ever, artfully blend, and hands down, this is seduction at its best!

I absolutely love this perfume. I am sad I ran out of it. It isn't cheap or I would have it now! Mentally, and physically, I started my transformation from a teen to a woman while wearing this perfume. It was so intoxicating that perhaps it made me lose some of my inhibitions and muster up some "chutzpah" I didn't know I had. It’s spicy yet sweet. Feminine yet bold. Dare I say mysterious... I felt so sophisticated in this. I probably love this smell because my most beloved memory of adolescence is tied with it.
Just a side note--- I smoked many djarum blacks while wearing this- quite heady and amazing together... (such a billy bad*** time for me). Looking back as a new mom, I long for this type of unrestrained glamour! ;) Will be reintroducing this # soon...

I'm bad because most pleases to me is coco M. became created in 2001 and the rest already later. Zen Shiseido in 2007 , new Miss Dior in 2010 .Whether after the example ? wryyyyy.

I bought it blindly based on the commentaries here. And wow! Never have the reviews on a perfume been more correct! I want to thank you all for sharing your experiences and helping me form an idea about the perfume. I think they were spot on (all positive and negative).

It’s sexy, elegant, classy and feminine but fresh. That’s something that really surprised me (in a good way). I thought it would be suffocating. But it is definitely not!

As many have said, it is patchouli all the way, with jasmine and musk also being notorious on my skin. I don’t get so many other notes but I suppose that’s the thing about a good -quality perfume, that all the notes blend in together and you can’t quite put your finger on each of them. I feel it to be quite “creamy” but not powdery.

It fills up a room but is not overpowering. I guess that what I’m trying to say is that the minute you walk in people are going to notice you but in a subtle way, it’s not a “in your face” kind of fragrance.
I would be comfortable wearing it on a daily basis, but I won’t because it is really expensive and I prefer to use it when I want my spirits boosted or for a special occasion. But you can most certainly wear it during the day, at night, and both in winter and summer, although some notes are best appreciated in a warmer temperature.

When it comes to the age, I would say it suits a wide range. I’d say from someone in their twenties to someone in their sixties.

Summing up, it is really versatile!! Age, season of the year, time of the day, occasion…. It really is liquid gold to me!
I really like it!! It makes me feel good when I wear it. It “dresses me up”. I hope it never runs out.
Absolutely recommended! =)

Note: If you don’t like patchouli or want a very sweet and heavy fragrance, this one’s not for you.

EDIT 23/05/13: I spritzed only once this morning, and I could smell it on me all day long!! I love love love this perfume! The sillage and longevity are excellent! No doubt about it, a Chanel is a Chanel.

Two Words: WOW and LOVE. Coco Mademoiselle was my first perfume from the house of Chanel and I am glad that this was my gateway to the world of chanel as this "Miss" captures the timeless essence of Chanel fragrances but radiates a flirty, feminine and youthful vibe that is more fitting for the modern, uncompromising yet classy woman.

It opens with a basket of citrus, full bloomed rose and fresh jasmine flowers. The floral-fruity goodness doesnt stop there, as the Patchouli grabs the centerstage, that is when the magic begins. This patchouli is the earthy, uber comforting yet sumptuous kind. After a while, it turns into a sweet spicy-floral that is beautifully composed and sits well on the skin. It ends with a sort of woodsy musk base and a refined vetiver.

I can see how CM can be a potential trendsetter. Here´s an analogy of the auras of Chanel 5 and CM : Chanel no 5 is for the elegant upper-class madame, while CM is for the stylish upper-class "it girl". Don´t get me wrong, CM is not directed only to the younger crowd, it is versatile and loved regardless of age and status.

You get long wear time as expected from this house. Despite the reformulations, CM is here to stay and adored by many.

I scored a bottle of this beauty from a friend who wasn't in love with it....lucky me when I found out the going rate o_O! It bears some similarity to Oriens (slightly bitter) in the opening but has a more youthful, powdery dry down. Sillage is good without screaming at you and didn't give me a headache.

It warms up nicely with a soft sweetness that is quite subtle, only slightly Dior-esque, but yes I can smell a bit of Miss Dior in there. It's the good part though. I find Miss Dior far to loud compared to Coco Madamoiselle. If you can't handle the strength of Miss Dior, get CM instead, it's much easier to wear. I will definitely be treasuring this one.

I finally got around to trying this perfume today. And I have to say that I do like it. On me this is very powdery + patchouli - but with an elegant, feminine and classic Chanel sort of touch. Aside from the initial spray, I do not perceive any citrus in this perfume at all but others (when asked) said that they do, indeed, detect some citrus on my skin. This one is probably not for me (I would buy No 5 or Coco first) but I can certainly see why this one has become so popular: pretty, romantic, decent sillage, Chanel.

This perfume is very pretty and I splurged on it just because it's a classic Chanel. I found it totally unisex, with definite masculine overtones.

Months later, I found Yves Sistelle's " Sanderling " perfume for a bargain price. I read all the Fragrantica reviews and decided to give it a try. Reviewers are RIGHT ! Sanderling is exactly the same as Chanel Coco Mademoselle , but without the masculine unisex ingredients.! Sanderling lasts just as long, projects just as well, too !

Every time I wear Sanderling, everyone says > "Oh, you're wearing Coco Mademoselle !" I just smile, knowing I can enjoy the best of a classic fragrance while saving a fortune at the same time.

Is this the review page for the "eau de Parfum"?
If so, let me just say that this is a fabulous perfume that has the name "Rose" all over it!
It is a lovely, playful, romantic, fruity rose in the beginning-more musky later-, a bit young and naughty, seductive but sophisticated, very natural and yet refined that keeps its character and gently develops for hours.
This is the only perfume that deserves the company's logo on it's cap since the original "Coco", and that should be enough, for you to go out and try it.
M. Polge, well done this time!

As I was aimlessly floating around the mall today I passed by the Macy's counter, as per usual and saw this sitting there and thought I'd give it a squirt because so many people seem to like it...I don't. Now, I will say that I'm not a fan of real "proper" perfumes, I'd say I have a pretty juvenile or commercial taste,and the finer things do not appeal to me. I also cannot stand Marc Jacobs Lola and I wish I did because that's my dogs name. Anywho back to Coco- I don't know what notes I'm getting but I suppose that's the point of these finer perfumes, for them to be so masterfully blended that you cannot pick out the notes. All I know is that to me, it smells like all the other Chanel's I've tested (which admittedly is not a lot). I thought this would be more youthful, maybe with a hint of sweetness with a name like "Mademoiselle". It's still a bitter type perfume and honestly reminds me a lot of "Beautiful" by Estee Lauder. This also has some major staying power. I tested it about 8 hours ago, came home and put on some of my own perfume, and I still keep getting whiffs of this and thinking " what the hell is that smell!? Oh right, Coco". Not my style, but then I honestly did not expect it to be. We shouldn't write things off without at least giving then a fighting chance, right?

I love the original Coco Mademoiselle and wrote a review full of respect to this creation.

However, this was about the perfume I used to know. I have gone through a couple of big bottles of it and still own a quarter of a 100 ml bottle that was bought a couple of years ago.

Now, in spite of what I wrote in the previous review ("I will always repurchase it"), this is going to be my last bottle of it.

I heard that CM was reformulated, but never believed for some reason. However, a couple of months ago I received a fresh sample of CM while purchasing Chanel cosmetics. I took it with me to my long-awaited vacation, because it's a handy little sample with exactly the same juice, I thought. Oh how wrong it was.

I tried it again and again, again and again, and after I returned home, too, but nothing helped. People, it really was reformulated. Now it resembles the EdT version which I have always hated (screechy thin citrus water on me).

This is not that I'm that against changes/reformulations; but what has worked for me for years, does not work anymore AT ALL.

Goodbye Coco Mademoiselle.

I absolutely love Chanel...I love each one of the flacon's i own...this is a brighter Chanel with the bergamont,citrus notes...there is a slight soapiness to the scent...and then there is the light rose you smell in Coco Chanel with the slight aldehydes of Chanel No 5...in the Chanel line this scent ranks number three..i have actually moved Coco noir to number two and Coco Chanel number one...Coco Noir is the middle ground between Coco & Coco M but still deeper enough to love...i love more stronger deeper scents...but Coco M is in a class all her own...and i really like her and will keep her in my collection..what a beauty..i love to wear this alot at home as a comfort scent

Ok. This is a intense and sharp in your nose scent! I think it is the vetiver that overpower the other notes and makes this too strong for me. Maybe the Eau de toilette version is better?

This scent is one of the best that my nose has ever met. I have the perfume and wear it on special occasions or when I feel like getting the attention of someone special ;)
This is such a timeless, classy, elegant, feminine scent that every girl/women needs to give a try. Every time I wear it I get compliments.
It is extremely long-wearing and you only need a little because it throws itself. I can still catch a little whiff on my coat after a WEEK.
My only advice is to only use one or two sprays because it can be overwhelming if you spray too much and you'll look ridiculous if you can be smelt from 10 feet away.
Please, do yourself a favor and test out this beautiful and sexy scent. You will not regret it!

Ok, I deleted my previous review as I've now discovered a new side of Coco Mademoiselle today.
I got it for Christmas. A lovely, thoughtful gift. Very chic and young and slightly lady-like. I didn't think much of it, I didn't dislike it, couldn't understand the hype.

However I've been wearing it throughout the coldest months! From December til April. All wrong! Only today the temperature in UK finally went over 10 degrees (Celsius) and I spent some time in the sun where it felt like 15 degrees, so my body temperature went way, way up! I've been cold since October 2012.
And only today I discovered the true meaning of CM, it is supposed to be worn in the warmer months to be truly appreciated. I should have listened to previous reviewers! You were right!
It went from a cold, slightly nauseating, strange combination of vetiver and vanilla that I just didn't care for, to a LOVELY citrus-patchouli-jasmine with a little bit of rose that my body projected like a 'constant hug' all around me.
I needed springtime to truly appreciate Mademoiselle. I'm IN!

Lasting power: very good, +8h on my body, few days on clothes.
Sillage: good.
The scent is nice, elegant and feminine. This is one is very good blended. I am sure that perfume was reformulated. I owned a bottle in 2003 and the one I bought in 2012 is way lighter, what makes me really sad.
( the lasting power is still very good, but the scent was more intense) You can't go wrong with this one, good for date, some special ocasions etc...
I loved the old version, I still like to wear my 2012 purchase especially now in spring but when I am run of it, I don't think I am going to buy it again, only in concentration perfume not EDP.

Beautiful. It's not necessarily the most individual fragrance (I smell it, or at the very least, imitations of it, very frequently on others) but it's such a powerful, strong, but exceedingly feminine and flowery scent. I get compliments on it very often and my boyfriend loves it! The thing is, a little goes a VERY long way. I put on two small spritzes, and my boyfriend almost choked in the car. I knocked it down to one the next day, and he could still smell it from about five feet away (not that he was complaining!). It calms down after about an hour, but the initial strength of it can be a tad powerful.

As much as i am a fan of Chanel's perfumery, i simply do not care for this scent at all. I smell it constantly in clubs, shops, offices, you name it... It must be popular for a reason, as it is a well made scent, easily appealing, fruitsy, sexy and all that jazz, with something classy added in it.
However... I think mediocre wearers made this fragrance smell somewhat mediocre, i.e its popularity made it smell rather banal.
Well, most people who choose to wear it still smell nice and all. But its not for me anymore. Its for them.

This is a good quality fruity floral, there's nothing 'chypre' about this scent. I'm really surprised and disappointed at this wonderful house who created such timeless beauties such as No5 and No19. This frag is high street for the masses. It's nothing special and it bores me after a while. The sillage and longevity is very good as one would expect from Chanel but it's certainly no masterpiece.

The fragrance had struck me as a rich, sophisticated elixir at first, yet as time wore on, I found the scent set down way too much and turned out to be queasy. I like perfume to be accompaniment instead of disturbance, expecially when I'm at work or having dinner, etc. A bit sad though, it is still a beautiful fragrance, which requires apropos occasion to be used.

A beautiful fragrance, but unfortunately just TOO intense. It insists on screaming at people in your path. Being aware that many of the Chanel fragrances are a bit powerful, I tried so hard to just spray an ever-so-soft, petite puff of this perfume on--but still, I would get some comments at work. Not mean comments, just comments regarding my perfume and i could tell some were feeling it was too loud. I also tried the trick of spraying it in the air and walking thru it, but I still heard comments. After realizing that even the slightest drop of this was too meaty, I quit wearing it. Too bad, it really is beautiful, but needs to be toned down. Perhaps the Eau de toilette would be more acceptable, but I didn't want to take that chance and I like being able to just spray fragrance on me without having to figure out tricks to minimize what puffs out.

It´s strange, but this perfume just doesn´t work for me. It´s classy, elegant,lasts ages and yet a no no for me. Someone told me that coco madmoiselle is for blondes so maybe that´s the reason.

This is my signature scent, and it basically ruined all other scents for me. I still want to know them/own them, but they are not getting much wear, because everytime I want to smell great and feel good my hand reaches for Coco Mademoiselle. I got my first bottle 10 years ago and I still adore it, it still delights me. I don't even know why - it just wears great, it's never tiring, never boring, it's perfect for every weather, day and night, and I love it that my hair smells Coco Mademoiselle when I wake up in the morning after a great day and adventures of the night. The fresh and pleasant smell that I can still feel in the morning makes me happy. I also love the bath & body products from CM's line - especially the shower gel and fresh moisture mist.

Tried a sample of this yesterday at Dillards...and was very glad I did. It definitely has the "Chanel" type of scent but much sweeter and softer. The dry down does remind me a lot of "La Vie Este Belle" by Lancome. In fact, they seem like sister perfumes. However, this will target more youthful audiences as it is not aldehydy and strong. It's classy, feminine, youthful, and Chanel. Does this review need anything else said?

wonderful after a few minutes
I met Coco Mademoiselle quite recently, even though the smell is kind of popular and well-worn. Indeed - I felt the perfume has not once, but I did not know what it is. I'm not a person who engages foreign women and asked what do You wear ? I fell completely with this scent
The first impression was very wrong, because it is the beginning of a strong and suffocating. I thought it was more than that for Madame - not Mademoiselle.
After a few minutes the smell on my wrist softened and I felt something so beautiful it took my breath away.
I find it difficult to extract the individual notes, but the smell is very warm and dreamy. Floral - fruity sweetness with a delicate jasmine, rose. Instead, I feel the sweet orange peaches, but they are not synthetic, straight from the can. All of this is covered with vanilla, but the smell is not so much sweat, and the addition of bergamot fragrance adds freshness and lightness.
Persistence many hours, sprayed with hair still smell the next day, long or smell clothes and scarves. However, the body smells much nicer.
The smell beautiful, but not only for special occasions. I think I will check in every season. My husband goes crazy, coco is so sexy.
Bottle elegant and simple style chanel.
Price is high but perfumes are worth it.

On me the citrus and jasmine notes come out the most, maybe a little of the musk too. I smell no patchouli or resins whatsoever. Mouth wateringly feminine though and will make men take a second sniff. On me it has nuances of Miss Dior Cherie and Chance, and for that I love this perfume, might buy it once I get a job and am able to afford to keep up with my perfume buying addiction - hehe :)

Oh and the silage is gargantuan and will make people run for the hills if you use too much so please, spray Mademoiselle sparingly - 2-3 sprays is ENOUGH. You want to smell like a Madam, not an attention seeker! Lasted a good 28 hours on my skin, longest lasting perfume I've come across in a while.

This is the first perfume I have given a pretty harsh review. I'm sorry if this hurts anyone's feeling but it's my honest opinion.

For me Coco Mademoiselle has the best commercials, despite it's horrid scent, a pure car refresher. And even though I'm not the type to dislike a perfume easily, this one manages to spin my stomach real hard since the first try. I really can't stand it, not on myself nor on the others, not even just a whiff from a passer by...

****************

#Note to self: Guess I'm not a "Chanel" type of woman:

I tried No.5 = Failed
I tried No.5 Eau Premiere = Failed
I tried Coco = Neutral
I tried Coco Mademoiselle = EPIC Failed

It's an irony that I get along pretty well with Chanel Egoiste and Bois des Iles.

Over the years I have tried hundreds of fragrances. There is only one that I truly adore, (Ralph Lauren Romance) but I have to admit, that Coco Mademoiselle is up there in my favourite top ten.

I was persuaded to try it after reading the glowing reviews here. I bought a small sample bottle online - oh its lovely! so feminine, so alluring, so soft and dainty, powdery and warm and snuggly and mmmmm!

Its suitable, in my opinion, to be worn day or night. Its not overpowering at all. I wore this on an 11 hour flight to Mexico and the man next to me said it was a pleasure to sit next to me because I smelt so good!

My boyfriend actually inhales me and nuzzles my neck when I wear this - what better endorsment can a girl want?!

As the day wears on, I keep sniffing my wrists and inhaling the loveliness - mmmm.

Coco Mademoiselle is in a class by itself. With all of the berry and candy scents on the market today Mademoiselle is refined, elegant and versatile. It can be worn to the office or a night on the town. I love the patchouli & vetiver in this fragrance. It smells sophisticated yet sexy. I receive new fragrances quite often however always go to Chanel Mademoiselle everyday & evening. I don't care for citrus scents but this fragrance on me smells more patchouli & vetiver. Some people find it more of a citrus scent on them. Guess it depends on your body chemistry. Nothing on the market compares to the beauty of this scent.

Reminds me of a less heavy, slightly powdery version of Black Amethyst from Bath and Body Works. I wore that daily for years, so of course I like this one as well. I layered the Coco Mademoiselle over the Black Amethyst body mist on one hand this morning, and put Coco Mademoiselle on by itself on the other, and there is very little difference between the two at all. Layering intensifies the vetiver slightly, but otherwise I can't tell the difference. Since B&BW discontinued Black Amethyst in the EDT, but still carries the mist and lotion online, I'll be looking to get a bottle of Mademoiselle so I can layer them.

I just wanted to hate Coco Mademoiselle; let’s check out my list of complaints:
1) I usually dislike fruity perfumes. Fruit should be eaten—dang it!
2) The note listing = boring cliché line-up. Yay—another fruity-floral with a dash of patchouli. Bleck.
3) It’s painfully ubiquitous.

Anyway, Mademoiselle is, indeed, all of the previously mentioned items; however, in spite of the reality surrounding this fragrance, I still enjoy it. First, the citrus fruit somehow sticks around past the opening and blends with the patchouli and lychee creating a warm, pink haze that weaves through the composition. Below the pink haze is a touch of musk and above the pink haze one can detect the icy fluttering of jasmine and rose. The floral component is high quality and can be found in other Chanel fragrances; IMO this is one of the features that keep Mademoiselle from sliding into the pit of mediocrity. An hour later, the delicious patchouli-vetiver-tonka combination takes over. This is, by far, my favorite phase and I’m shocked at how much my wrist finds its way to my nose. After the release of Coco Noir and Chance, I have a newfound appreciation for Mademoiselle…

Beautiful soft citrus, jasmine and patchouli fragrance.
Jasmine predominant at the beginning,then citrus and patchouli develop quite nicely on the skin.
Close to the skin, got 'forever' hours out of it. Good quality scent. Excellent for daytime. And I agree-very versatile, different notes/stages at different times.
I like to put it on before bedtime, it lulls me to sleep. Very comforting.
Longlasting :)
p.s. picks up in strength with time, featuring patchouli and citrus

I like how versatile CM is. It has to be tested on skin because one can never get all the phases on paper. For me it is a beautiful fragrance, but I can see how it could be strong to some, because it can be so easily overdosed. I think one or two sprays are more than enough. The time of the year can also make a huge difference. While the patchouli note is the dominant on my skin in Summer, I can hardly detect it in Winter. It is a cool weather fragrance for me.

Luca Turin and Tania Sanchez say that Coco Mademoiselle is really played out and that it's a common perfume for trashy girls with bad highlights and orange tans. Even if that's true, I don't care because it smells so darn good! I was missing a flashier sex-godess perfume from my collection, and I found that this is just the thing. It's orangey, sweet, warm and deep with a slightly masculine cologne freshness. It's loud, gorgeous, and it's got balls. It's what I like to wear when I mean business.

I am beyond in love with this perfume. It is slightly masculine to start, then alluring, seductive. A great mix of spicy and sweet. Long-lasting with great sillage. I am so obsessed with Coco Mademoiselle, I plan on buying the Parfum and the body cream for layering. It is elegant, sophisticated, sexy. My husband loves this as well!

I find this could work for day or night. If you're a woman who loves to wear sexy, strong scents during the day, this would be great for you. If you're the type that prefers to be more reserved during the day and seductively elegant at night, then this would also be an amazing choice.

The original Coco used to be a signature scent for me. When Mademoiselle was introduced, I thought it paled in comparison to it's more sophisticated sister. Now, many years later, I have developed an appreciation for the flirtiness of Mademoiselle. Flirty but still sophisticated and modern. Funny how tastes develop and times change. But classics are classics for a reason.

I'm not a lover of this perfume, way too citrusy for me. But if you are a lover of it or if you just like it a little and feel its way too expensive and are lucky enough to have a Lidl Supermarket near you, where you can purchase a 50ml edp of Madame Glamour Suddenly for under 4.00GBP. It is an exact dupe. It lasts pretty well too. I only wish they done a dupe for Coco which I love. Check it out on Ebay if you live outside Europe.

I will forever own a bottle of this.....this is my wedding fragrance. I wanted something classic and expensive(hence Chanel) but beautiful,sophisticated and sexy as well and for me Coco Mademoiselle fit the bill.

I love the orignal Coco(and tried it too)but alas, even in my thirties, Coco still 'wears me', I don't 'wear it' so I continue to wait until, hopefully, it does not dominate me in the future. Coco Mademoiselle strikes the right balance for me with her citrus opening brightening the florals and vanilla and I love how it changes by subtly deepening as the hours continue. At night when it's cooler she reflects the original Coco and it is 'spicier' on me, it's almost like a completley different fragrance. I love it and happily, my husband does also! Whenever i wear it he nuzzles my neck and says I smell like our honeymoon:-).

FINALLY got my hands on this mademoiselle and I am so so happy to have it in my collection as of now! I was eager to open my new bottle last night, so I sprayed just 1 tiny spray on my wrists and went to bed... Next morning I woke up still smelling it like it was yesterday! That just proves it's absolutely SICK staying power - AMAZING!! If you love citrus (I do), then you will love the opening, though the best part is its dry down - so elegant, classy and sexy - and that is what we all want in a perfume, right? :)

I finally came around to trying Coco Mademoiselle and I'm pleasantly surprised with how much I absolutely love it. After testing it a few times, I knew I had to buy a full bottle. This perfume really doesn’t need yet another review, but here are my thoughts. It starts off slightly dry with the bergamot and orange adding coolness to the crisp texture. I only wear this during cooler weather, so that might be why the citrus opening smells rather cold on me and not quite so juicy.

Anyway, I actually really love the dry opening with the cold orange—it smells so unique and crisp. I was disappointed when the citrus eventually melted away into the warm florals, but the ylang-ylang, jasmine, and rose became a soft, yet strong bouquet that smelled sophisticated and classy. My favorite note in this perfume is the beautiful, delicate roses. It's so well-executed. Every so often, the orange would float above the roses and then fade away again. Lovely.

The patchouli stays pretty strong throughout and mixes so beautifully with the rose scent. The patchouli makes this smell sexier and more dramatic. I love when I put on my coat and catch the patchouli scent still lingering on the sleeves from days before. I also notice a hint of spice (even though no spice is listed as a note).

I didn’t get much vanilla scent, which is a shame. I don’t consider this a sexy fragrance, but it’s definitely chic and dramatic. I can wear this for any occasion, and I must admit, it's becoming my signature scent. It's just so beautiful. As for longevity, it lasts all day, and the sillage is noticeable but not overbearing.

To be honest, I wanted to dislike CM just because I don’t want to wear something everyone else is wearing, but this is undeniable! There’s a reason why it’s so popular. It smells classy and modern. It’s hard to find perfumes that aren't too mature or too youthful, so I enjoy how CM is sophisticated and modern in a youthful way. I'm also picky about how roses smell in perfumes, but I love this. And the patchouli is so amazing.

My favorite perfume at the moment! 5/5

USE SPARINGLY! Especially the first time. Wow, it's really strong, it gave me a headache and almost had a gasoline smell.

At first my impression of this scent was so-so. Fruity, well rounded, nice. Nothing so special.
Then I smelled the dry down on a freind, wow! Delectable :) when the deeper notes come out the perfume is absolutely sexy.
This perfume is good for any occasion and the most versatile perfume I've ever smelt. It has the slight edge, the soft innocent floral fruitiness, and the seductive depth. It is good for going out for coffee, special occasions, summer, winter, morning, evening. It successfully, elegantly, and artfully pulls all the elements of a nice perfume together. As is typical of Chanel it always has a delicately soft balance even when utilizing strong aromatic notes. This will always be a favorite.

I tried on Coco Mademoiselle today, and it was not what I was expecting.
I really like Patchouli, that is the whole reason I tried C. Madmoiselle, but the patchouli here is missing.
The beginning started off as very complex. When I inhaled, the start of the fragrance smelled different from the end. I couldn't follow the notes, but it was very interesting. My boyfriend told me that it was different than any other perfume that I have had.
But within the hour, the complexity died down to one single overpowering note...Rose.
A very sickening sweet Rose.
Rose and I are not friends, we do not get along.
I tend to bring out the rose in most fragrances that I've tried, and I bring out the worst of rose. It's such a shame too, I very much enjoyed the opening of this perfume.
I really wish that the patchouli had been the prominent note. I bring out the best in patchouli.
Like any fragrance, I would try this before I bought it. I think that this would be lovely on the right person.

Edit - I'm considering giving this another try. I REALLY liked the complex opening of this perfume, and when I sprayed this on myself, it lingered on my coat for days. On my coat, it did not develop the sickning rose smell, but instead developed this incredibly lovely smell.
Oh, how I wish it smelled like that on me! I envy you women who can wear this. :-(
I tried Chanel Chance in Coco Mademoiselle's place, and while they are similar, Coco mademoiselle's opening is more complex.

By far I have always received the most compliments when wearing Coco Mademoiselle than any other perfume - and most of those compliments have been from strangers. It is a beautiful ultra-feminine fragrance and can be worn almost any time. If I had to use one word to describe this perfume it would be 'sparkle', which is what it seems to do when it is worn.

I get so many compliments from this fragrance more than any other I wear. People always come up and ask what I use. It is a bit expensive but so worth it. My husband bought this for me in Chicago two years ago and I still have the bottle. A little goes a long way. The lasting power on this one is A++. It's so sexy and elegant.

I wish this worked on me. I was so excited to try it! Unfortunately, on me, this fragrance is nothing but powder after the first five minutes.

It smells like powder, which is extremely disappointing considering I've heard so much about it.

Patchouli is not a problem for me. I love patchouli! The drydown also sounded amazing, because my chemistry works well with musks and vanilla. On me, I got no patchouli, no citrus, no ever-evolving sophisticated scent, not even a brilliant drydown, just pure powdery goodness.

The worst thing? After scrubbing it off super hard, it was still there.

Lasting power is amazing, but my body chemistry just doesn't work on this :(

On my sister, this is a gorgeous, citrusy sweet floral with a little bit of a spicy undertone. On me, it's a horrible patchouli bomb. And it doesn't go away. The first time she used my bottle, I had told her she could borrow anything in my bathroom as long as she left my Chanel No. 19 and my Annick Goutals alone. She came out wearing this, and I asked her which it was, because it smelled completely different on her, and I didn't recognize it. When she told me it was Coco Mlle, I asked, "Are you sure?" I eventually gave the bottle to her.

I adore this fragrance. It's expensive, but smells it, it's classy and floral. I think it would be suited to a sophisticated woman of any age.

Personally, I don't think that the patchouli is as strong as suggested above, I can smell it, but it's more of a base note. The different scents all work together to create a beautiful smell, I can't get enough of it.

Lovers of Chanel Coco Mademoiselle - This fragrance smells nothing like Chance.

Chance is more dry, peppery, and smells a little bit heavier on the musk. The patchouli, in my opinion, is drier and woodier, compared to the more sweet, mossy patchouli in Coco Mademoiselle.

The citrus in Chance is very sour, and I love it sometimes. But Coco Mademoiselle smells simply a touch more divine. It's very sweet, but very well blended; like tonka and orange mixed together.

Just to differentiate.

I first started using this perfume a few years back when a friend from the states sent me a small rollon. I love it immediately though it's a little strong at that time. One dab is enough to last me a whole day! I don't wear this often because of the warm weather here. I recently got another 35ml bottle and this time, the smell is heaven! Not as strong as I first thought. Somehow, I smell the citrus first and then it mellows into this creamy and sweet smell. I don't usually like patcouli in perfume but the patcouli in Coco mademoiselle is light and smooth. I love it so much that I even use it at home. The sillage is very good. After spraying just one aquirt on my wrist, my room still smells of it afterwards. Just love love this!

I have been a perfume addict for the last couple months (probably 6months now) and i have a nice size collection already with a variety of genres. i had smelled this scent wen i was in sephora and thought "yumm, this is soooo diffrent from anything i owned, really sophisticated but maybe too heavy"; so i stopped myself from purchasing it because i was honestly thinking to myself that there was no way i could ever pull this off, and for how much a bottle costs i wouldnt wana jst throw it away. however, i never took the fragrance off my wanted perfume list because a part of me (no matter how much i may have been in denial) was already attached :) i am fortunate enough to have such an amazing best friend who is always sneaking a peak at the things i most want and managed to buy this and another perfume from that list for me. the most amazing thing is that my best friend is a guy! And though this fragrance was on my most wanted list, there were many others on that same list. My best friend has an amazing nose, and he said he chose what matched my personality. this is my new signature scent (for now hehehe). everyone loves the scent on me and i jst cant begin to describe this fragrance and how sophisticated, yet fresh and wearable it really is (i was afraid to smell heavy and old im in my early 20's) im so thankful to my bestie! i love him for gifting me such a gem as this. for all the girls who smelled it and thought it smelled amazing but were also afraid of it possibly being too heavy, give it a fair trial and dont be afraid. it may turn into one of ur favs.

I absolutely love this fragrance. It is so unique- no other perfume
Is like this one. I can identify it if I'm out and smell it on a woman passing me by and when I do smell it in the air like this for a moment time stands still and I fully enjoy that moment, thinking, "Ahhhh what a nice experience. I love this smell." I've hesitated buying it simply because I was trying to go through a bottle
Of something else before I made another perfume
Purchase, but everytime I walked into Sephora or Bloomingdales I sprayed this on and instantly felt like such a beautiful, sophisticated and elegant woman. My boyfriend smelled it on me and said I smell like a million bucks. He bought it for me for Christmas and I'm
So excited to have it finally!

First impressions:

My goodness, this is elegant. I hesitated to purchase or even sample this one because patchouli makes me nervous, and I'm not sure whether I'm old enough to really carry off Chanel.
Then Grandma decides she doesn't want or need her almost-new bottle and voila! Happy owner of Coco Mademoiselle.
Starts off with a balanced citrus (can't sort out the indivdual lime, bergamot, orange notes), quiet rose and patchouli--but a clean, fresh patchouli rather than a dirty patch, if that makes any sense. Neither juicy nor dry, sweet nor sour--a perfectly balanced composition.
My impression is that it's a young (but mature) scent--for the type of twenty-something who laughs instead of giggling.
I've been wearing it less than an hour, so I'm still waiting on the middle and base notes to fully assert themselves, but it's a great experience so far. Have I finally found a signature?

Final impressions:

Had to scrub after three hours. The patchouli and musk really asserted themselves and dirtied up what started out as such a fresh, bright, balanced scent.

Very, very impressive longevity--one spray survived an hour in chorine-laden water, then two scrubs and a shower. And my entire living room still smells like Coco Mlle the next day. This has aggressive sillage as well, and I don't know if I would want to inflict it on bystanders (considering that my skin obviously does not wear it well). Probably a marvelous scent on others, but sadly not for me. I may try the EDT in the future, since some reviewers have noted it is softer and less harsh.

Edit: more than 24 hours have passed since spraying it once, and my carpets and furniture are still thick with this smell. Amazing longevity.

Edit: several days later, I keep catching a whiff of some exquisitely gorgeous scent that forces me to stop and sniff my wrists--when did Lolita Lempicka/Shalimar/Insolence (or whatever I'm wearing on a given day) change into this gorgeous creature?! Then I realize I'm just picking up a remnant of my Coco Mlle spritz--from the carpet, a scarf, a throw--and wish again I could pull it off!

On a random note, wearing L by Lolita Lempicka on the skin plus Coco Mlle on a scarf (accidentally) blended to an incredible concoction.

I love this scent because, to me, it is very unique.

Yes, it is fairly common but there's really nothing like it in my opinion. Very long lasting and perfect for the office or a night out!

I call this fragrance "come on everybody, let's all smell great!"

This is so luxurious, so intoxicating that I don't care when I sit in a cafe with my husband, and a girl sitting at the next table wears the same perfume. How pretty a scent should be for that? :)

This is the instance when a very good product got outrageously popular. It really is a good perfume, I would not call it blatantly commercial as well! It has a masculine vibe (many people don't like it), some dirty patchouli (which gets wearer-unfriendly at times). It is not typically sweet, too. It is refined enough to please devoted perfumistas' noses. But still, it is a great commercial success.

There is another great instance of a balance which is obviously more important for me than Chanel's profit. Coco Mademoiselle makes my olfactory nerve relatively happy AND - oh my goodness - my fragrance-hating husband loves this perfume! I have gone through a couple of 100 ml bottles so far, and he keeps saying me all the time: "Mmm, what smells so good? A new perfume again? A nice one this time, finally!" :)))

I think I will always repurchase it.

I know I've already done a review on this fragrance, but I have something to add. A girlfriend of mine smelt this on me the other day and commented on "how masculine" my fragrance was. To my nose, it smells of beautiful roses. Funny how scent is different to everyone. Girly, while having a masculine vibe. Fabulous.

I'll chip in my 2 cents even though everyone else has too. I LOVE this fragrance! I'm new to the world of fragrances, and I realize this has been around for a while, but I had sort of a "blind" test of it: I was tired of my usual white florals, looking for something different, and the lady at the fragrance counter tried it on me just to see what it would do. It was like nothing I had ever smelled before. Delicious. Now I'm no longer a mum that wants to seem younger... I feel like a yummy mummy! LOL. My husband likes it although he says it's "a bit strong."
The ad video and the popularity of it actually detracted from my liking of it, but that's all in my head. I'm hooked.

Wow! I've been sleeping on this one. I first encountered this fragrance in my early twenties and I think i just wasn't ready for it. I was too immature to wear it and appreciate it. But NOW, it has consumed me! It opens with the most beautiful citrus I've ever smelled, very true citrus, freshly squeezed.

But wait! Could this be a "cologne" for women? Many of you won't get what I'm saying though. It's for women of course but the background of it has elements or notes that a men's cologne would have. I actually like that. If you're familiar with Lucky's fragrance in the pink bottle, i associate that same vibe with that, which is mostly a clean , loud , natural scent.

This is great for all occasions , but I feel I need to dress up for something so elegant. I couldn't take wearing this daily, it's just too much but I love it!

This lasted the entire day one me. It definitely sticks to you. A must have for every fragrance fanatics wardrobe. I despise any of the other Chanel's but this is it! You won't be disappointed :)

This IS the longest-lasting, biggest sillage, longevity for hours- fragrance I have ever come across. Sprayed this on at 9:30am this morning and it is now 8:23pm and I just got back from the gym and it is still there! (This never happens to me) If you want all those things, you've found it. It is Chanel quality for sure, and what I find perplexing is that it the longest lasting Chanel I have tested. I wish Chanel No 5Eau Premiere had the longevity that this stuff does!
I love it. I love all the phases. At first it is bright with juicy citruses and then it morphs into a blend of the fruit with lush floral notes. It is edgy, and on my skin-borderline masculine, after the floral heart has faded a little- it turns into tonka bean, patchouli and vanilla musk. My husband doesn't like it-(yet) he says I smell like hemp. I'm sure it will grow on him. I am saving this one for special ocassions, fall-winter evenings only for the classiness and elegance that I feel when I wear it. This perfume makes me feel like I don't need anything else, but I don't want to use it up, because then it won't be as special anymore...and I will be more broke, buying more bottles!

I do like it, though I don't wear it very often.

I sort of feel, like, underdressed if I wear this with my daily casual clothes for some reason...

I like to wear it with lingerie and heels though.
It was given by a man and I do think men like this fragrance on a woman.

Because this scent is lasting I appreciate the subtle wafts of it in the clothes and the room later on. And I think it's very recognizable.

Finally smelt this in a store with very low, unbiased expectations so I could fully appreciate the scent. Before I get onto the actual review I need to say that this perfume is a more beautiful mix of SJP's Lovely and Beckham Signature for women. It has the lovely citrus notes of Lovely and the oriental/patchouli notes of Beckham just nowhere near as sweet.

In the first ten minutes I was walking around the mall so I couldn't smell the scent around me but my wrist had mainly notes of citrus and patchouli, its a bit sharp at first but just WAIT. When I entered the movie theater, the scent developed beautifully. I dont know if its because I was in closed off space but the sillage was PERFECT, strong but definitely not annoying. The smell was so sexy and intoxicating, but I knew I had smelt it somewhere, not on someone, but it was the embodiment of an exensive perfume counter. I dont even care, I want to smell like this for the rest of my life.

Mademoiselle ALMOST surpassed my expectations, if only it had lasting power beyond six hours. This perfume is a tease. It is so intoxicating and you dont want it to ever leave but sadly, it does. This perfume lacks a period where it just peaks at its finest, unless my nose cant detect it.

I will definately try this again to see if I can find what it was missing or if it will last or project longer, because after two hours the sillage absolutely disappears which is extremely dissapointing. Sexy, flirty, classy, expensive but as of now, until I know EXACTLY how Coco Mademoiselle works with my body, I will not yet purchase it. However, the sexy citrus, tempting, sinful florals and the clean, classy patchouli are just begging me too much ;)

EDIT

Nope, no more than 3 hours... My skin eats this stuff alive. Goshhhh why is it always the best scents that have the shittiest longevity?! It's just not worth the price. Allure, on the other hand lasts for ages and smells even better, definitely worth its price tag.

I So want to love this fragrance - I test it at least annually to see if my tastes have changed, but no luck. The bottle is gorgeous, understated and so chic. Sadly, the juice sits on my skin all cold and sharp, intrusive and obnoxious. I get citrus, bergamot, standard aldehyde notes and patchouli - none of the warm cuddliness I smell on other people who wear this.

I got a bottle of Coco Madamoiselle for a steal on ebay - another blind impulse buy! I have to say I am definitely not disappointed with this one!

I have come to expect a level of heaviness from fragrances including patchouli, even if the heaviness is short lived, and I didn't get any of that. Initally I smelled the citrus, and at the heart I can really smell the rose! I have discovered that for whatever reason rose notes come through particularly well with my chemistry. I like that the change from the top notes to the heart is subtle, and the perfume smells fresh without losing any of the elegance.

As I just received and tested Coco M this morning, this is about as descriptive as I can be at the moment - I may very well come back and expand upon this review after I have had time to enjoy the perfume! Thus far I am definitely pleased with it - a great buy!

For a lot of time, I looked at Chanel perfumes with respect, but I never dared to try them on me, as I felt too young to be able to wear them. Until I saw this, and the 'Mademoiselle' on it made me think that *maybe* it was more suitable for a young girl. And, after one spray on the wrist, I fell in love.

This is one of the best fruity floral fragances out there (and believe me, I'm quite picky with fruity florals because some of them tend to smell cheap on me). It's sweet, feminine, cheerful and fresh, but with that Chanel elegance (especially on the dry down). And the patchouli on this one is magnificent in my opinion.

A wonderful fragance that can work day, night, formal, informal, and all year round. Great :)

This is only Chanel scent what I like. I dont`s like any other Chanel`s scent they are too strong/chemical for me.

It`s last ages on your skin. First what I smell is vanilla, bergamot & rose. It`s unique and it easy to use. For me it`s heavy, so I only wear it winter time.

Had a sample of this so I spritzed myself once before work. Fresh and citrusy upon initial spray. Before noon, it still smelled quite nice, elegant although unisex on me. Unfortunately in the afternoon, this perfume turned very masculine and harsh on my skin. It smelled manly, sharp, and very musky. I smelled like I was wearing cheap cologne for men. :( This was unexpected since I thought this would smell more feminine. I wanted to wash it off asap, but it really stays (I only sprayed a teeny tiny spray from the sample vial).

Maybe I'll try again now that it's colder. Not sure if it will make a difference.

I was looking for a fall/winter fragrnce when the sales associate suggested CM.I have the EDP version. I love it, and knew I would from other chypre florals that I wear. My skin likes them. I spritzed the paper in the store and knew it was for me. Was I surprised when, upon wearing it, it morphed into Chanel Chance Eau Fraiche! Thankfully I also love Chance Eau Fraiche, but I am disappointed that I now have two scents that perform so similarly on my skin. Has anyone else noticed this?

ok so when you first blast this this is a vibrant sophisticated citrus blend of lemon,lime,orange as the top notes and it is a chypre scent and a perfume similar to this is Angel Aqua Chic...i wanted the pizazz i got from that first blast of Aqua Chic but wanted a perfume line where it would last longer and Thierry Mugler is known for that but in this case aqua chic didnt last but it is a summer scent but still if i put out the bucks i want quality so i went for Chanel...well i bought Coco M because of how it smelled at first spray but then when i got home i realized something, that the scent was not as strong as i was looking for..it is more of a daytime work scent..i mean it lasts but it is not over the top and i love over the top scents so i was so displeased.. i traded this baby for Chanel Coco and i was not disappointed as that one is a powerhouse and gives you a strong citrus lemon note i still love...you know if Coco M would have been as strong as Coco i would adore it more than Coco but it wasn't...i am not saying this isn't a wonderful perfume but i think it is a safe version of Chanel trying to lend toward new chanel buyers which is ok but for those looking for more denser classier beauties this just didn't wow me after spending much time using it indoors and out..you will get wiffs of the aroma of the perfume but not like oh wow this is amazing and powerful..just safe and feminine..if you can not handle stronger scents i would give this a go but if you love stronger scents go for Coco Chanel

I get why some think that Coco Mademoiselle is quite masculine,since it has notes in it that can turn out very manly, sharp and strong on some people. It's most of the time the Edp that people don't like, but they enjoy the Edt instead cause it is much softer and feminine.So if you have tried the Edp and did't like it, give the Edt a chance, since they don't only differ in their lasting power. This is not a very common fragrance at all like so many have claimed. I have never smelled this on anyone. It may be popular on the Internet, and among perfume lovers, but not so well known to the majority of women who doesn't deal with fragrances so much. Plus, Coco Mademoiselle is one of those "tricky" perfumes that don't smell good on everybody.

Despite that: I am absolutely in love with that perfume, the Edp works really well with my body chemistry. I think if I could create a fragrance, it would probably smell like this. It is not too strong, not too weak, it is feminine without being too sweet, edgy without being too harsh. It smells classy, yet youthful. I have to think of a pretty woman in her 20's, wearing a vintage dress with a modern-casual twist whenever I smell this.

I love this perfume! I love it esp on other women, on me I feel it really heavy in the beginning, which means at least 5 hrs. But what remains the next day on my scarf is just undescribable beauty. I am sitting here 2 meters away from my scarf and am melting in this beauty. The patchouli and musk blended is the winner above all scents of the whole world! Amazingly sensual and attractive! 10 stars!

This one is very fresh and woody in the opening. Not quite so feminine for a pink juice called Mademoiselle, could easily be unisex, but certainly very chic!

I went to my local pharmacy yesterday and sprayed one of my hands with Mademoiselle. When I stepped outside, it's like the fresh air enhanced the perfume and made it even more wearable! Some note definitely stood out (bergamot, maybe?) and added a lot more feminity to this citrusy, woody concoction. Beautiful!

I heard a lot of people say Mademoiselle is generic, boring and you can smell it everywhere you go, blablabla. To be honest, I can't recall having smelled this anywhere before and I didn't find it boring, I found it quite edgy in all honesty. Chanel perfumes have that edgy, vintage feel to them and Mademoiselle is no exception.

The drydown? Not as pleasant, I have to say.. sharp and very grassy to my nose. With a dash of citrus and a little bit of wood.

All in all, beautiful fragrance, but I didn't really like the drydown. :)

In cool countries this is very fab to wear all day and night! I'd buy it if I live there. This is a type of perfume that gives off a prettier and more elegant scent as it goes longer. It gives off a clean, elegant powdery scent as it goes longer.

Sadly, it smells too strong, almost like a man's perfume, in a hot and humid country -- even with just a single spray; a bit of sweat will make you smell pungent. A scent like this in such a place will only go really okay in cool and classy evening parties or a dinner date in a classy 5-star restaurant. Same goes for the EDT.

And like any other reviews here, sillage is VERY good and the fragrance lasts really long!

If I live in a cool country, I'm definitely going to buy this one. It's worth the money. :)

People said before that each Mademoiselle formulation is unique. How true.

I had purchased a small decant of pure perfume first - and sparingly dabbed the perfume concentration. And that was lovely. Spicy, rich and I perceived a richness, not just patchouli screaming at me. So I was confident enough and bought the new 1.2 oz size of the eau de parfum.
That right there was my mistake. The pure perfume Mademoiselle is a lot closer to Coco, actually.

On my skin and current chemistry it becomes loud and flat patchouli that screams its head off. Again, not bashing Mademoiselle - justs that the perfume does different things on my skin.

Sillage and longevity - can't beat it, I took a shower and it wouldn't wash off. After the shower the remainder was a fairly obnoxious herbal and medicinal cough syrup leftover.(??? like camphor)

If I win the lottery I'll get a nice pure perfume splash and my brandnew eau de perfume bottle is up for swaps. (I'm more of a Chanel Allure Sensuelle and Coromandel girl- I never shied away from patchouli - but this was a total chemistry mismatch). If someone would like to trade- I'm open to suggestions.

On the right body it is amazing.

Dear all,
You must remember that it depends a lot which Coco Mademoiselle you've been trying and what amount. You have to remember the quantity of raw materials in Chanel fragrances and always choose the right version of the fragrance. For them who judge Coco Mademoiselle as a too heavy, you should have tried the EdT. And second, Chanel doesn't "have to remind you to be sexy" because women who choose to wear Chanel are independent, sophisticated, brave and outgoing. Just like Coco herself was. There fore you can truly only wear a Chanel fragrance when you're deeply in love with the brand and it's history. I believe Chanel is a way of life and wearing Chanel fragrance, accessories or fashion, you are your own life's Gabrielle Chanel. To me she's an inspiration and that's why I love and like each and every Chanel fragrance, even those are not all for me to wear.

There is something off-putting about this. I guess I can see how other people would like it... but it's like it's trying too hard to smell sexy and sophisticated.

You can definitely tell it's a Chanel fragrance. Almost all Chanel perfumes share a certain nuance that is both charming and annoying. It's like they feel they have to REMIND you that you're wearing Chanel and therefore, you should automatically feel sexy.

I just... I don't know. It's not that great. Not bad... but not great. I think it's a tad bit masculine as well. Doesn't really say "Mademoiselle" to me.

When I first smelled this, I loved the smell so much. Upon wearing this for some weeks, I noticed something was turning me off from the scent, and it was too heavy on my skin. The patchouli and musk were too prominent on me. When it's on my skin, the patchouli and musk overpower all the other notes. That's a shame because the other notes are very nice. This smells so good on other people, so I gave it to my friend. Too bad it didn't work with my body chemistry :/ Good scent though.

FANTASTIC....This smells SOO good. I cannot understand how anyone would not like this smell. It is confident but not intrusive, sophisticated, yet fun and sexy. It commands your attention but not in an annoying way at all. It is still an approachable scent. This is a beautiful, well put together perfume, which will make any woman of any age feel beautiful when she wears it. To me, this is one of the lightest of all the Chanel perfumes. I can see why it is so popular. Btw, this is by no means a "snobby" perfume (ridiculous statement) as one reviewer stated, however, it is classy, but yet it is down to earth, and it is a scent that turns heads and draws you in not because it is loud but just because people want to know what in the world could smell so soft and divine. I do not understand some of the comments about it being masculine. It is completely a girly girl perfume. It is soft and powdery and sexy. The only way this could be considered loud is if you sprayed more than a couple of sprays on yourself (as with any perfume), so use a light hand. Also, I live in the south, so on hot days this is not the one. It tends to get strong when you sweat. But in colder weather, it is just so soft and sweet and feminine....absolutely adore it!

Who's to say who doesn't deserve to wear a certain perfume? If Chanel only wanted special people to wear Coco Mademoiselle, they wouldn't sell it in shops, only in exclusive circles or clubs with these special people. It's only another perfume. Everyone who can afford it deserves to wear it, no matter who they are, how old or young they are and how they are dressed. Life's to short to be picky about it. Coco M is a girly perfume, so why can't young girls wear it. It's perfect for them. Coco M is Cocos younger sister. :-)

How should a person wear Coco M to be worthy of it?
I love Coco M. If I want to smell it when I'm out picking mushroom, I wear it. I own a bottle and do what I want with it.

I keep hearing about how wonderful this is and yet every time I smell it I get the same horrendous mix of unpleasantly sharp citrus, grass and wood. Very masculine as well, and not in a pleasant way. I just don't get it. Maybe its my nose, but I don't find this to be pretty or interesting at all, just unpleasant. I really wish it were otherwise because the fragrance that all the positive reviews are describing sounds marvelous. I wouldn't want to smell like this, and chances are if you're wearing this I'll probably run in the opposite direction.

In a way, it makes me glad this isn't for me because it is extremely popular. At the same time I wish I could smell what you all are smelling. :(

Ooooooh, I have found my new signature fragrance! I can easily wear this all year round as it suits any occasion IMO. Coco mademoiselle is earthy and fresh with an herbal depth that is so soothing. Definitely smells expensive and well put together. Now if I could convince my husband to wear this! I would nuzzle my nose to his neck all evening! I can definitely see a man pulling this off handsomely, but it is not all masculine by any means. A scent for a strong and independent woman who knows what she wants and how to get it ;) I feel all ALPHA WOMAN when I have my CM on! Simply exquisite!

For some reason Coco Mademoiselle really messes with my nose. Most perfumes I can identify at least some of the notes, but with Coco Mademoiselle I can't pick any individual notes until it's almost gone, when I can finally catch a whiff of jasmine. But at the outset all I get is a very heady whack of sharp fruity-citrus-grassy-woody, and it stays that way on me without developing or softening. I really find it quite loud and masculine. I think I'd like it better on the hubcap than on me.

A stunning citrus explosion, so sweet it almost smells like candied orange, while the florals and woodsy notes add complexity to this striking scent that surrounds you with its sophisticated sweetness. I absolutely agree with Keira Knightley when she said that this scent makes you feel like you can 'stand up straight,' because it gives you a sense of feminity that is lively, beautiful, and powerful.

An EDP which is truly special, fresh, feminine, but stays close to the skin and not very long lasting...

I applied 6 heavys sprays

0 -2.5 hours - 3 inch projection. This is captivating and so brilliant, such a heart dropping aroma, it is like a creamy-rose fresh alluring frag, but you to have to keep smelling were you applied as it is relatively close to the skin

2.5 hours - 4 hours - 1 inch projection, linear but why change when you are so wonderful. Faint smell thereafter and some soapiness towards the end, though this does last to the following day but incredibly faint and distant

A masterpiece smell but too short lived and close to the skin, shame as I fell in love with the scent...

Not a fan of this one for some reason. I know it's hugely popular and I quite like the smell on other people, but on me it just doesn't really work. It's too high pitched, somehow, that's the only way I can describe it. I much prefer Chance eau Tendre, which has that sweet floral thing going on, but with more backbone. Mademoiselle is too dizzy for me!

Coco chanel original .. as a mature/rich/sexy/night-out scent

Coco Mademoiselle .. as a Girly/during work scent

Chance EDP .. works for Both(Mature & Girly)

It's a beautiful (read: complex and lady like) fragrance but I gave it away after half a year of trying.

Even though it’s feminine, distinct and complex I figured it’s probably just a bit too complicated for me. I mean to my nose it’s the combination of being too floral and too sharp that finally made me make up my mind. I'd describe it as a _thick_ scent (for the lack of better word), which just isn't me. I did want to like it but gave it up eventually, admitting that Coco Mademoiselle is just not my cup of tea.

But turned out that it's very much my mother-in-law's cup of tea! Her favorite!!! Needless to say it was a quick descision to give my vial to her - she loves the fragrance and appreciates it more than I ever could. And it suits her perfectly! Not to mention that I love the fact that I’m not confusing (unintentionally though) my hubbys nose. :)

Yey, I've finally got this perfume and it's fantastic. It was expensive but I'm pleased to say it also smells expensive. :) The notes that stand out for me are orange, orange blossom, rose, patchouli, vetiver and musk. It's a very interesting composition of bright, light and feminine and dark, woody, musky and masculine components. It never verges over the edge and becomes a masculine perfume to me, though, thankfully! However, there's just enough woodiness to make it a very classy, elegant but confident, powerful fragrance to wear for an evening out. The bottle is a gorgeous simple, pure, sleek design and the colour of the liquid reminds me of a good quality dry Rosé wine - the perfume also has a similar bittersweet quality to it, like candied orange peel steeped in rosewater. Really pleased I now own this! Oh, and the sillage is magnificent! :D

Can someone help me identify the top note ingredient in this perfume, especially EDP, that some people here describe as harsh, unpleasant, hairspray, nail varnish remover, chemical etc. l absolutely love it. lt's a funny smell more to do with some memories probably. lt reminds me of my childhood plastic raincoat or inflatable toys or something like that. For me it is something like plastic, something definitely acidy and chemical. Can anyone smell it too? l am not as happy with this perfume as l used to be years ago since for me it doesn't smell the same. l am looking for something new but l can't find this specific top note smell l absolutely love.

a beautiful classy light fragrant can easily worn by any body without offending anyone. The opening of the fragrant (top note) does have some weird nail polish acetone smell. Luckily it dissipates rather quickly and the real fragrant finally set in a few minutes. I pick up mostly floral with a perfect dose of sweetness. This is a modern fragrant and is made to stay close to the body without projecting across the room to scare off anyone like the older perfumes type. On me, it lasts about 4-5 hours. I am usually not a fan of floral fragrances but this one doesn't give me a head ache at all. It's not my holy grail fragrant but it is definitely pleasurable compared to many obnoxious head ache inducing perfumes of the past made by Chanel.

Bought this perfume after finishing my hell on earth chemistry class. It cost me a pretty penny, but I needed to have my own perfume and stop borrowing from my mom. It was worth every penny. Sweet, flirty, and I find it incredibly sexy, it works for all seasons and all occasions. I remember going to the movies with a fella and him telling me afterwards how he loved the smell of it. It has become my everyday smell and I absolutely adore it. Next time I'm buying a 100 ml bottle of this pink gold...

Bergamot, rose and patchouli. I didn't like this scent at all when it first came out, but now it's kind of grown on me. The mix of bergamot and rose is just so perfect. However, I feel that the patchouli is overdone and gives it a cloying effect, and it overpowers the other notes. It's very popular, as I can't walk a single block in Manhattan without catching a whiff of it. It's a good scent, but in my opinion, definitely not worth the money.

I must admit, this smells a lot like to me Chance. I'm surprised not many people have made this comparison. But I must say that I more fond of this perfume a I do find it more casual and "grown up".

Chance is a favoriate perfume of mine, and I didn't think anything could top it, but I do find it overwhelming at times. If I sprayed it more than once I get self conscious about how cloying it may be. I also feel like it's a more younger sister of Coco Mademoiselle considering that Chance is somewhat louder.

Coco Mademoiselle is a perfume I could wear casually and feel confident in wearing. Right of the bat I smelt a grapefruit type of citrus, which was almost a concern for me because the opening was almost reminiscent to Hypnoses Sense by Lancome (which is still a decent fragrance), but that opening settles for five minutes and turns into the perfect mixture of floral (jasmine and pink rose) and sweet in a sophisticated way.

I think of this scent as a very vibrant and jubilant Classic by Burberry (which is saying a lot because Classic is not vibrant). The combination of notes are smooth and clean. Do not let the words "bold", "strong", and "independent" scare you into thinking this fragrance is loud and that this fragrance is only for the refined, it really isn't, I think a lot of people could pull this off. I feel this is the perfect type of sillage. This leaves the right kind of impressions, enough for someone to think of you after you've walked away.

A soft warm lovely comforting scent. I smell mostly orange and tonka with a tiny touch of patchouli. This is pleasant at first spray but really evolves into a sensual beauty as the day goes on. I have smelled this on people wearing too much and it becomes heavy but with a lighter touch, it's divine. Smells very similar to the EDT but this has a touch more patchouli to my nose.

I have not worn this myself (nor would I ever); however, I have experienced it due to someone wearing it at work. Coco Mademoiselle is elegance in a bottle: a vanilla-neroli-powdery scent that fills the area and lingers in halls and rooms where you have been. I can't speak about the top notes nor longevity, but it has presence in spades. This is the stuff of royalty and classy Hollywood stars -- elegance and sophistication.

The top notes remind me of Miss Dior Cherie but the fresh opening quickly fades and a heavy musky, smoky scent takes over. There are only a few scents with Patchouli that I really like. Most scents with it smell masculine to me. If you like the top notes, you probably won't like this scent. I prefer the original MDC to this. So far, I haven't found any Chanel fragrances I'd purchase.

I just can't do Coco Mademoiselle. I just can't. I know people love it, but it is aweful on me. The opening reminds me very much of Elie Saab--all sparkling citrus and orange blossom. On me the top is very sweet. It smells like gummy bears and baby powder. The high quality gummy bears that have real fruit juice in them, but still. In the heart, it becomes just pure baby powder on me, then dries down to just musk. I'm sure this is lovely on many people, but not on me.

This frangrance really last all day. It is mature but in the best way possible. Mature meaning grown and sexy, not old lady smelling. Is very earthy floral and smokey on me. if you smell it and close your eyes it instantly takes you to the bedroom of a parisian lady who has fresh flowers in her room, a garden in her back yard and her lover smokes vintage cigaretttes. I dont know of any perfume that smells like this one. I didnt buy more of it, but if i ever find a husband this will be one of the bedroom scents ;)

This is the scent that begat my fragrance obsession/collection. I fell in love with this scent when I was 25 (I think in late summer of 2001). It was unlike anything I'd ever experienced at the time and I had previously shunned wearing perfume. This was a game changer for me. It's very "grown up", bold...powerful...sexy. It's a woman's scent (not a "girl's" scent), sophisticated, luxurious and mature. I later discovered it to be the signature scent of two different women I knew through work, both 20+ years my senior. It definitely works on mature women, but it also worked well for me in my late twenties. I would spray on in the evening, go out for a night "on the town" and the scent would be lingering into the early afternoon of the next day when I crawled from bed into the shower. I don't wear it very often, but I still absolutely adore this perfume.

Tried this a few days ago. Surprisingly fresh opening, then it starts getting sweeter, deeper and warmer. This stuff is potent! I sprayed once on my wrist, and next small store i went to, i had the feeling that i left a huuuuge trace of Coco Madamoiselle, and scared some of the customers off lol. Sillage was really big, way too much for me to handle. I still can smell it clearly on my jacket sleeve, 3 days later. Lovely, lovely fragrance, just too strong. This perfume was wearing me for sure, not the other way around.

This was my gateway perfume - before Coco Mademoiselle there were only mainstream, heavy floral orientals in my collection. I was 22 when I discovered this beauty - the perfect age to start wearing a Chanel. I know it's so popular it's dangerous to wear on a first date (most men have probably smelled this on countless others), but, it's popular for a very good reason. It prompted me to explore other, high-end luxury fragrances.

Spicy vanilla, orange blossom, mandarin, jasmine, and patchouli come together to play in CM and it's intoxicating. The sillage is amazing, and longevity is nearly unbeatable (especially if it makes its way onto your clothing). Who can resist the lovely pinky-peach shade of juice, and the classic Chanel bottle? I had a brief love affair with the original Coco perfume after discovering this one and becoming curious about the line, but this is just far more wearable and vibrant to my nose.

Depending on the weather, it can take on a different personality, and I've noticed it on others and it smells slightly different, so I think this definitely works with your chemistry to project something unique. I enjoy it best in spring and summer months - as the juicy citruses give it a sunny feel, and the patchouli keeps the vanilla from being cloying and gives it an earthy feel, instead.

If you've had your eye on Coromondel but are hesitant about the price, give this one a second try and you may find the earthy patchouli - though less powdery and more wet thanks to the vetiver note - is quite similar in CM.

This is a more sexy, more mature, sophisticated nighttime perfume. It's heavier than most, and is long-lasting. I only wear it occasionally, not for every day.

Coco Mademoiselle makes my toes curl...in a good way. I do have to add that I'm not too crazy about the opening, but the top dissapates soon enough. Mademoiselle is sparkling citrus and lovely florals. The vanilla and tonka gives Mademoiselle a sweetness that is just right and definitely doesn't verge on confection. It's fresh, effervescent, and sexy and would smell great on any woman.

Orange fizzy drink with patchouly. I do not find it very interesting really and not particularly nice either. It has something in common with Cacharel Liberté, although they are nevertheless quite different. It is more similar to Boss orange, which does actually smell of orange fizzy drink without addictives and is from my viewpoint the least interesting amongst the three. Liberté is stickier and heavier, but I think has got more character, not to mention strength and the staying power. Liberté smells more like orange marmalade. I do not appreciate any of them in particular, but if I were to chose, i would go for Liberté. I do not think CoCo mademoiselle is a bad perfume though, I actually think it is one of the best Chanel. It has got some complexity and depth and is quite well balanced.

When I wear it, I feel that I don't need no jewelry. The perfume is a jewelry itself.
Classic, feminine, seducing and confident - that's the Coco Mademoiselle, that's the woman wearing it.

This perfume is so lovely! It's fresh and spicy! It's longevity and sillage is good. The eau de toilette version is nice and fresh, but isn't as noticeable as this one! When I wore this one, people always asked me about it.
What I love about this perfume is that it's present but elegant. I don't think it's a perfume that make people go "ugghhh" but more like "mmmm, what does she have on?"
You can wear this perfume all day all night and all year around. Even with all the citrus in it, it's even perfect for the winter, because the spice and patchouli balances it out. But the patchouli is not overwhelming.
It makes you feel elegant, strong and lovely all in once. Perfect for weddings...

I love this scent... it's my new signature. I'm also crazy about Coco, the original, and Shalimar - my three beloved perfumes, the best in whole Universe... :)
Coco Mademoiselle is the most versatile of them all and suitable from morning till evening, from spring to winter - a factor I rate highly. Musky, sensual, slightly oriental and not floral at all (fortunately, because I'm not keen on flowery fumes).

I just bought this perfume a few days ago and I am in love!!! It was suggested to me in a cosmetics department when I mentioned wanted something similar to Stella by Stella McCartney. After smelling a few options this was suggested to me as I was not moved by any of the similar fragrances.

I love this but I am a bit new so I do not have all the terminology. I mostly get all the beautiful aspects of it when I wear it that others describe but on occasion I get some of the sharper notes when I spray it on late at night. Maybe this does not agree with my lotion as the day goes on, I have no idea really!!! Out of all the bottles I have accumulated over a relatively short period of time, this has to be my favourite!
****it was my lotion for sure!!! I switched and now the perfume lasts all day!

Coco Mademoiselle is a scent of Freedom for me. Kids was quite small those days I lived with a person who loved just to be king with huge will of owning. I managed to go to the meeting with other beauty consultants to other city and I was wearing this scent. I felt for a long time that freedom of spirit and met huge many same spirited people. I was so happy and enjoying. This scent reminds me always about freedom of every spirit and soul. I will always love Coco Mademoiselle *Hugs*

My love story with this fragrance started 5 months ago. First I tried this in a perfume store and I didn't like it- too strong, too "adult" ( I dont't want to say old) for my mood. Sometimes I think- it must have been difficult to appreciate the perfume in a store where a lot of women try the fragrances, the air is full of different notes...
But I had to admit -it smelled expensive (and it really is!), chic and elegant. This is like a classical piano piece- you must enjoy it in the silence (for a perfume that means- without any additional scents around).

Now I really appreciate this wonderful scent!
After about 1 hour it turns into something adorable. I can detect bergamot, vanilla and some citrus fruits. Vanilla and the tonka bean are the perfect match, makes me feel like a queen. It's long lasting.
Warning- it is easy to overdose it. If it's used too much, it reminds me the aftershave my grandpa used to apply in great amounts in order to be "fresh, handsome and a great guy" . :)

It is out of question that this is a unique sexy soft luring and elegant fragrance,but the secret is to know where to buy it from,for if it wasnt stored properly in the dark and in a cool place,it'll smell like everything but the original smell.It will smell like a bunch of dead flowers.But if you are lucky to get it right the first time like I did,the smell will linger in your memory and heart forever and youll be able to distinguish the true coco madmosille for ever anywhere & everywhere.

To me this is very much like Miss Dior Cherie, however i actually think it's slightly nicer. It still has the sweetness of MDC but with that smoother 'Chanel' background, it's not as harsh some how and seems to blend into the skin better (well mine anyway). Seeing as how MDC keeps changing and you never really know which one you are buying these days fans of it might want to check out this one instead as there is not much difference in price xx:)

I have a few fruity chypres in my collection and I am always reading the comparisons to Miss Dior Cherie (2011) and Bath and Body Works Black Amethyst so I finally decided to finally add this one to my collection as well.
Compared to the two this one is much lighter, airy... like expensive french soaps and powders yet it still melts on your skin. I'll have to agree with reviewer ChanelNumeroCinq, is slightly more faint on me. MDC and BA only require one spritz while this requires two for the same effect but has similar staying power.
For a more extended comparison between CM and MDC check out my review on the MDC 2011 page, but to sum it up Miss Dior Cherie is much more edible, warm, and syrupy... leans more towards a gourmand despite sharing many of the same notes.
Black Amethyst is Coco Mlle's more bright and chippy twin. They have similar dry downs but BA turns up the volume, blasting the juicy green apple, and citrus in the opening. Definitely more of a pick-me-up than Coco Mlle's relaxing quality.
Coco Madamoiselle makes me feel so much more girlish due to its subtlety but not in an immature candyish way allowing it to cross a wider demographic which explains its popularity. I'll definitely use this as my new fragrance for spring... the pink elixer will perfectly suit this spring's pastel wardrobe!

for anyone who is not satisfied with my favorite femme fragrance, please forward your bottles to:
Jae Lamont....
LOL - I'm just kidding. I happen to be a guy who loves the fragrance enough to wear it proudly on certain occasions. Everything isn't for everyone and the same applies to Chanel, unfortunately. As for me, I absolutely LOVE it. This works on my skin like a charm and no one EVER assumes that I'm wearing a "pour femme". I'm always complimented by both sexes.
To the ladies who don't like this, I'd encourage you to sneak this onto the skin of a male friend/lover/husband/you-get-the-picture.
You might be surprised. Just a thought....

You know you have a great perfume on when you can't stop smelling your own wrist! Chanel's clothing fashions have maintained a rare level of class and sophistication while still moving with the times, and Chanel is clearly doing the same with Coco Mademoiselle. This fragrance is very modern and now but still maintains that classic Chanel-esque quality. I love the balance of brightness in the citrus and depth in the vanilla and tonka bean. It's both confident and sensual. I think Coco Chanel would be proud to have her name attached to this fragrance!

I WANT to like this perfume but have never really warmed to it... In theory I love it but in reality it just does not sit well on my skin. I do occasionally get compliments when wearing it and on certain days it seems to work better than others. I tend to use it on casual office days and only ever one spray (more than that would be too overpowering on me).

As someone mentioned, it is not an exciting smell, but it is lovely. Citruses are gendle and soft and the whole composition is rather a floral woody smell especially after one hour. This means that it can be worn of women that dont like sharp citrues as well. The different concertrations,vary in the floral/fruits balance, so you .have to test all of them before you decide. My taste, would lead me to the sharpest one.

i had high hopes for this and was very disappointed. too fruity for my liking- first spray just smelled like an abundance of muted warm oranges. there was a little bit of the rose underneath but not too noticeable on me. the dry down was a little more interesting with the mimose and ylang-ylang but overall a typical feminine perfume-y smell, did not find anything to get excited about here

I've always been a Chance gal. I still am, but I'm also really glad I've given this one a try. I have to disagree that this is very much like Chance. They have a completely differenent vibe. Mlle is definitely more serious, mysterious, and seductive. Something in this scent comes off as deep dark dusty cocoa powder to my nose - and I really like it. I think it might be the mixture of tonka, opoponax, and vetiver. The patchouli is extremely prevalent, but in a very un-hippie way. It's more of a vintage movie star patch. Bergamot is bright in the beginning but smooths out nicely as it wears. I don't get much of a floral essense at all here. Perhaps a little ylang ylang. Mostly a hearty swirling mixture of patchouli, tonka, vetiver, opoponax, and bergamot. I like this brew. Sophisticated without an air of stuffiness. Seductive without being bawdy. Equal parts rough, smooth, fresh, dusty, bitter, sweet. It's kind of purring......but also somehow growling. Very intersting. Great sillage and lasting power.

Just based on the name and color of the fragrance, I was expecting something which smelled a little younger. If this is the personality of a mademoiselle, then it’s a mademoiselle who works in big business 14 hours a day, has recently been promoted and takes no nonsense from her subordinates :-) That’s not necessarily a bad thing, but I was expecting something different.

It doesn’t seem to work well with my body chemistry. It’s not bad at first: it’s well-rounded and citrusy; nothing ground-breaking, but pleasant. I am not so fortunate in the drydown, however. The fragrance loses its citrus aspect and smells like chalk sprinkled with air freshener. Not very appealing. Basically, resist the urge to buy after the first sniff: wear it for a few hours and see if it agrees with your skin.

A beautiful, well put together fragrance. That's kind of how it makes me feel when I wear it - well put together. While I still find coco mademoiselle pretty, I'm not so sure that I want to smell quite so neat and pretty anymore! It's very safe, very proper and increasingly, very noticeable on other people when you go out pretty much anywhere. I think I prefer something a little less pretty, put together and popular!

I really wanted to like this fragrance as I love No5 and Coco but alas it was not meant to be. On my skin it just smelt overly alcoholic and that is not a good scent to have when you're at work. Once the perfume has settled on my skin it is unfortunately too sweet for my liking and I really wish it had the same effect on me as it does on my mother's friend as it smells fantastic on her.

I'm glad I'm finally getting it and I owe that almost ALL in part to you ladies on this site. You tipped the scales. I had smelled this many years ago in Macy's and it smelled good but I was too young and inexperienced to know reasonably good perfume. I still thought Elizabeth Taylor was the be all and end all of fragrances and most of hers smelled really bad to me. I also spent a few years on the skid row of perfumes, the Calvin Kleins and all their numerous monotony. My bottle of Coco Mlle is on it's way and I've got a handy little tester for my purse....I'll weigh in on it after I've worn it for a bit. It is a good thing that I don't base many decisions on the ads because I find Keira Knightly to be repugnant. I definitely don't have to worry about anyone in my circle drowning me out with a constant reminder that I'm not the only woman in the world wearing this fragrance. Everyone seems to agree it is an experience, somewhat magical and curious, but still mature and sophisticated. I like Coco too, but No. 5 is definitely a little too matronly to me. For my first foray into the world of Chanel, I think this will be perfect. Quite possibly my new signature scent. Very nearing 40 and loving it!

This is an aristocratic yet playful and romantic scent.
To me it preserves the posh feeling of all chanel fregrances while revealing a more relaxed, messy side of the other perfumes.It describes exactly the kind of woman portrayed by the lovely Keira Knightley in the spot, feminine and sexy while sassy and elegant.
I was so excited when i heard Keira is promoting a chanel parfume. Her being one of my favorite actresses I could not resist buying a bottle when flying to london.It was love at the first sniff! All of the notes are perfectly combined together and the smell of it definitely make the statement: "I'm wearing Chanel!" but in a more toned down way unlike the other chanel perfumes that often give you a headache.
All in all it's a very interesting scent worth giving a shot as it is not you typical "high end headachey" kind of fregrance. Perfect for wearing on a date or dinner parties!

This is a bipolar perfume for me.
When i love it i really love it, when i hate it, my goodness it's horrid!
I don't know why it flips, but i just keep it on the shelf for my love days.
I am a big fan of the spicy, vanilla, oriental, old lady, and powerhouse 80s fragrances-- and this is NONE of the above!!
I was actually expecting to like Coco instead, but it turned out i hated it with a passion (I got actual nausea). Then, while in the Chanel section at Myers, I thought 'why not' and tried on some CM - and I was a bit flabbergasted - a Chypre that i liked? What was going on? SO PRETTY!!!
This was the perfume that finally turned me a little towards chypre perfumes, or at least ended my sworn hatred of them.
This is one of the few modern perfumes i wear. It's so gosh-darn well created. Well done Chanel.

I've had this as a staple in my collection since I was in my early teens, now in my twenties with a rather large collection, this is still one of my favorites.
It has all the elegance and sophistication of a Chanel fragrance, and is a beautifully composed fragrance. At first spray it is crisp and refreshing and the citrus is rather prominent for the first 10 to 20 minutes with a slight peppery bite, which comes off a bit cold and not necessarily a sexy or cuddly scent BUT then pepper and citrus blend with lush creamy white flowers and this beautiful rich vanilla develops and it is this warm (still fresh) scent that envelops you and becomes so chic and sexy. It is very long lasting on me, can still smell it on my clothing for days and on my skin for a good 10-15 hours.

As a devoted 'Chance' lover, I always rejected this fragrance- because it seemed like you were either a 'chance' or coco mademoiselle' girl. I guess I will definitely be both! Chance and Coco Mad smell SO different! I really love Coco Mademoiselle too. However, I can only see myself using it in the Autumn and Winter because of its lingering warmth. I could faintly smell this on my skin the next morning...it was vanilla, tonka bean and amber muskiness. It is very warm. I always pre-conceived this fragrance to be more bright and fresh, but on the contrary it is musky and warm. While Chance is my work scent, I don't know that this could ever be my work scent because it is so rich and luxurious and romantic. I tend to go for the bright, crisp floral-citrus blends for work as they are energizing, and chance does fit the bill. However, I will surely be wearing this as a winter staple in coming years!

Coco Mademoiselle is a sweet, amber-y, elegant, chypre floral.

In the beginning it has these beautiful bright citrus top notes that include orange blossom and bergamot. They are sharp and fresh to the nose. The heart of the fragrance is a classic pairing of rose and jasmine. It's quite strong and pungent but still incredibly lovely. The dry down is a warm amber and vanilla glow. The vanilla is a creamy, earthy blend that smells a bit coconut like to me. Patchouli adds a nice well rounded richness to the scent while vetiver gives Coco a dry woody effect. It's a complex and beguiling fragrance.

It's Chanel which means the perfume is well made with high quality ingredients. The lasing power and projection is exceptional.

I prefer to wear this scent when I'm dressing up and want to feel ultra feminine. It pairs well with rosy lips and cheeks with softly tousled hair.

So I went tyo Ulta to try it today. I sprayed it on my wrist and neck and at first I wasen't to interested in the smell until after a few minutes later. It turned into a very unique, elegant smell. Even my daughter said it smelled nice and shes 11. I feel in love with it. I knew for sure I was coming back to purchase it when I get paid next week. I was so excited about the scent,l but as soon as I got home, I had my husband smell my wrist and neck and asked him for his opinion. He crushed my heart and told me it smelled like old lady perfume! I was so hurt. I want a perfume he's going to find sexy on me. So now it looks like I wont be purschasing it. I still like the scent very very much. It does make me question myself alittle, if it is a little to mature for me? Im only 27 though. Owell. I guess next time.

Not to sweet so it's great to wake up spray it and get in the mind set of what you need to be doing that day. Not necessarily to attract people but this perfume just screams respect to me.

Coco Mademoiselle is an extremely unusual Eau de Parfum, but in a good way.

It opens up with a citrus freshness that everyone here longs to have.

The heart becomes very sensual with the flowers coming in and woods creeping in silently to give a loud, beige, masculine undertone.

The base is what is left of the citrus, maintaining the youthfulness of the fragrance, while the woody notes of patchouli, amber, vetiver, vanilla, tonka bean and oppoponax make this fragrance a heaven of woods. At this point, however, it becomes totally unisex, leaning a bit more to the masculine side. It is now a mesmerizing combination of spices, woods, flowers and tangy fruits.


Coco Mademoiselle shows the evolution of a girl into a woman. Coco Mademoiselle is like a woman with elegance and power, due to its rugged, almost masculine drydown.

It is a timeless fragrance like the original coco, but easier to wear and more for everyone, young or old. It is a skin scent for sure, extremely well blended and well rounded. A signature perfume for the every day woman. But...it is just not unique anymore.. I get bored of it. It smells sensual...but I feel the urge to cheat on it all the time, even when I already have it on...hmmm...it is strange. Plus, or minus I should say, everyone else wears it and most definitely drown themselves anddd their clothing in it. It smells the same on everyone, another minus...one more minus, I have smelled numerous other fragrances that smell EXACTLY like this one, they are cheaper and without the big corporate name...just saying, hehe. This is the original, but now it is time for new and better things waiting to come :-) But, everyone must try the original Coco Mademoiselle before the dupes

I'm probably going to have alot of people object with me but hey.. this is my truth.. I can't imagine the big hype about this bottle of perfume! Its far too alcoholic, far too generic and far too common! This isn't worth the price.. Loads of people think its really long-lasting and that to me is a bad thing- I'd never want to smell like this!

Both my mum and my sister wear this frequently and smell divine, but I don't think it suits my personality. It is one of those noticable perfumes. It makes everything my sister owns smell like it too-it's really her signature scent. My boyfriend loves this when I wear it, but I do so only rarely, because it doesn't feel 'right'. I've never been a huge fan of jasmine, even though probably by most standards the jasmine is fairly light. I think this is a beautiful perfume, but for a different personality. I need some more fire in my perfume. It is angelic and supremely pretty and yet manages to still be a sophisticated perfume.

She is a Chanel. She is sophisticated yet casual. She has class yet is modern and au courrant. There aren't very many places she can't go. But at the same time, she isn't for everybody. She chooses you I think (just like others from the Chanel family...No. 5 and Coco).
I am in my early 30s and I cannot say I have had a lot of experience with Coco Mademoiselle up until recently despite it's apparent popularity. I thought I had never smelled it. Until I smelled it, I didn't realize I had smelled it before. There is a girl in my office who I am pretty sure douses herself with it, you can smell her coming from a mile away and it is repulsive on her. Usually when that happens the perfume is ruined for everyone around forever...but not with this one.
When I smelled it on myself I felt that this is definitely special, definitely could understand why it is so well loved. It is soft, rich, sweet, complex, but lovely...just a tad musky too (which is why I cannot wear it everyday after a while the muskiness builds up?).I am complimented steadily when I wear this by both men and women. It makes me feel just a little more in tune with myself when I wear it.
I have smelled it on others and it will smell different on them. This one must be very particular to body chemistry and also formulation. The edp is creamier and I can detect the base notes more. The edt is crisper and the top notes are more prominent. I personally would love to have the parfum as well. We shall see what the future holds.
But overall, as much as I want to be unique and guard all my secrets. I do encourage everyone to smell and test this one for themselves...must try...love it or hate it...a definite Modern Classic.

Do not judge this perfume only by the scent smelled from the bottle. Coco Mademoiselle smells different on your skin, that's for sure! And that's the magic of it.
I never really liked the smell and I put it on me one day only because my lancome was over and guess what: in a few minutes the smell changed and became DIVINE!

Since then, this is my no 1 perfume and it is the only perfume that people actually adore at me (and I have lots of perfumes, trust me).

It's true that the same perfume does not smell great on everyone, it depends on the PH of the skin, so my advice is to try a sample and notice how it smells on you.

For ex, my best friend asked me to buy it for her birthday and after she used it, she said that it is not the same perfume, so it depends a lot on the PH.

It is a MUST TRY perfume, trust me!!

Coco Mlle was the first perfume that really fascinated me. Enraptured as I was by marketing and brand, I was very eager to test what was certain to be perfect.

Coco Mlle is a sweet citrus powder, slightly shrill, but with a good, strong note of bitter mandarin peel that slowly dries down to a powder base. Vetiver bestows an herbal edge and gives the sweet fruitiness a “natural” angle. There’s a disinfected patchouli earthiness in there, more like garden supply store planting material than actual dirt. It’s a very pleasant fresh-yet-sumptuous scent.

Coco Mlle was a huge trendsetter. Every young woman today knows someone who wears it, or a clone. It’s doubtful the “modern chypre” trend would have emerged as it had without it. It has unfortunate aspirational connotations, esp. the EDT version, which is easily affordable to most office ladies who wear only one or two fragrances. It kills some of the youthful “luxeness” of the scent.

Ultimately, I found CCM disappointing. It just wasn’t me. I reluctantly moved on to her big-hair eighties godmother and was brought to my knees. In a good way.

This is a sexy and kickass little number chock full of girl power. I have been going off of a single bottle of Coco Mademoiselle EDP for about three+ years, have just finished it. It is an absolutely all-around great scent, good for day or night and just about any season (although I tend not to want to wear it as much in hot weather). It is still good after several years, it simply needs to be kept carefully and away from sunlight. I am absolutely NOT a floral person, but this captured my heart (and my nose) as I passed it in the perfume department. I could smell it above all the other scents, cutting through in a clean, direct way. The notes blend together and balance exceptionally well and you are left with an impression that is neither particularly citrus-y nor floral...it smells like elegance. And it continues to smell like elegance after hours and hours of wear. My clothes often retain a faint delicious scent of it days after. When first applied it has a sharper edge that softens with wear while still retaining clarity. This scent is my go-to for days when I want to feel powerful, feminine, and clearheaded. A good spritz and I suddenly feel like conquering the world.

My Coco Mademoiselle perfume, EDT's and the refills (all original and purchased from airport shops&trustworthy shops) are gone bad in 2 years, even the never-opened refills.. I used to wear this religiously but after some time I thought that is was so heavy and not so good for the daily life. So I was using them from time to time. This summer, I didn't even touch them. It was this month that I saw the sad truth, they all gone stale... If you are gonna get this perfume, keep in mind that this smell has such a short shelf life. Get the smallest size. Never back-up.

OMG ! Some people are so crazy : saying that this perfume smells like Indian Ladies !

I think they are unaware what a classy perfume smells like ???

I love this perfume - and I have so many British friends who adore this perfume & wear it all the time.

This perfume has an universal appeal to it - NOT JUST INDIAN LADIES , Duuhhhhh , Huuuhhhhh !

Chanel Coco and Coco Mademoiselle are the only two fragrances that have ever scared me. I eventually got over my fear of Coco being too feminine and was greatly rewarded. However, Coco Mademoiselle proved to be far more difficult. If only I knew that this was all in my mind...

This was the signature fragrance of a friend that I had an intense fling with(we're still friends).. Every time we'd get together, I'd go insane over Coco Mademoiselle on her skin. So when it was finally time to test the rest of the Chanel line, this one scared me senseless.

HOWEVER
Once I finally got the courage to test it, something was different. The patchouli was stronger, the mimosa was toned down, the citrus notes were amplified with the rose. Skin chemistry is a powerful thing. I thought to myself, "Damn.. I can actually pull this off!!" I was still worried about what people would think, though. So how would I get over THIS obstacle? Well, all of the co-workers in my section are guys. If Coco Mademoiselle was feminine on my skin, they'd be sure to let me know it.

Guess what? All I got was, "Hey, that's pretty fresh, man. What is that?" I wouldn't tell them because guys aren't good with those types of surprises like women are. All day, I caught whiffs of this and it kept making me smile. I felt upbeat, vibrant and refreshed all day. The sillage is between moderate/conservative on my skin. But the longevity is KILLER!!! It's been 12 hours since I sprayed this on my forearms and it's still noticeable.

To hell with the criticism and the popularity. This is worth the hype. I own this AND Coco, loving them both.

I was moved by its advertisement that this scent belongs to a young lady who is attractive, tender, but a little mystery. However, when I got the sample perfume, I found it far below my expectation (this perfume is also hot recommended online). How should
I describe it? It's not a scent of a lady who is well-of and born in a reknowned family, but rather, a clerk, or a secretery who desperately wants a promotion!

Afterwards I tried COCO(not this COCO M)and found it better.

I don't know if I like this. I smelled it on people before buying it and I liked it when mixed with cigarette smoke. Found it too damn strong and weird alone. Especially that mandarin orange smell, that I consider the most powerful is awful. But I admire its longevity and sillage, its effect on people who tell me I smell expensive and its bold character. I love strong scents, I think it's worth it when one spends money on things that last and make you feel/smell good. But I hate linear perfumes, and It's my humble opinion that some ingredients in this perfume share the same smell- jasmine, citrus, mandarine orange, etc, therefore the dry down is powerful and linear.

What's not to love??? Fresh, assertive and full of joie de vivre! Stunning on the gals but even better on the guys!!
Someone mentioned that this fragrance turns when old??? Mine is at least 4 years old but has been kept in the box (as all my fragrances are) ... this diminishes exposure to light which is the death of any fragrance. Yes, the bottle is beautiful, but use it up first then take the sprayer off and fill it with water and a drop of peach food coloring for display purposes. Don't forget to run out immediately and get another bottle :o)!!!

Oh, about pulling this perfume out of your drawer when you are 80... don't! I did something similar yesterday: I found a seemingly old and half finished bottle at a friend's place and decided to try it to see what the fuss is about... Dear Lord! It had turned to something horrible, acrid and stinking, absolutely disgusting!! I had to run to wash it off, which was not easy by the way. I'm very surprised that this perfume "turns", it doesn't bode well for Chanel's quality. I have some cheaper perfumes which haven't turned after several years. And, also two bottles of N°5 and N°19, which are more than ten years old and there is just a tiny bit at the bottom, but still smell fine. So perhaps Coco Mademoiselle is nice when it's fresh, but don't wait too much to use it up :)

Coco Mademoiselle makes me feel like everything I'm not when I have a shitty day. Seriously I know this sounds corny but when I get this deliciousness on me and the scent lingers I feel like a superwoman.

This is the type of scent that you will pull out of a drawer when you're like 80 years old, dusting it off telling your grandchildren about the good times you had wearing it.

Oh, I just love this perfume - it's silly.

I know that CM is one of these scents that everybody wears and therefore if you want to be different or better say unique, you should choose some other fragrance.

But there must be a reason why it seems that almost everybody wears this one. Not taking into consideration those freaks who come into perfume shosp and asks for what sells the best (gee forbid to have your own opinion), I would say that its popularity is the homage to the beauty and quality of this fragrance. Unfortunately, it is also the popularity which may bring this scent down (at least amongst the people who want to be unique).

Anyway, I am not going to write how this smells (the others have done it before and much better than I could.

I just want to say: Thank God that in my country not so much people wear a fragrance at all and thank God that I can enjoy it and wear it despite its popularity.

I'm trying this one today, and sniffing my wrist as I write this. First, it really does remind me of Chance,
but maybe Chance's younger sister. Chance with more playfulness. The opening was very fresh, full of citrus and bergamot, and rather powerful. This EDT has great lasting power, good sillage too. In the drydown...it's vetiver, patchouli, citrus, a cool sharpness I can't identify. I have a slight headache, so something in the mix doesn't like me, but I still enjoyed the ride.

To me a woman of any age could wear this: in fragrance I truly believe that age is more a matter of attitude than chronology, anyway.

I wear this for my own pleasure. I love it regardless the fact the every second woman in the street is wearing it also. Or more likely they are wearing a dupe, there are so many, and some are very good. So I rarely wear CM when I'm out and about in town, I use it on quiet weekends when I'm just pottering around at home, relaxing.
The longevity and sillage are excellent.

To me, this was one of the best fragrances in the world. You can't grasp just how great this is until you smell it. It is crisp, elegant, fresh, softly sweet, and smells expensive. This is the smell of every woman out there. And this is what kills it for me. Too many people wear this fragrance. To me, it is one of those fragrances that people buy just so that people feel familiar around them, kinda like that Amazing Grace by Philosophy. You smell it and think, hmm, this really could be something. But once word of mouth reaches it, you no longer feel special. You feel average. Over here in America people don't mind smelling alike, as if everyone is afraid to stick out. Like there is something in the air that makes you think, "conform!".

I began to form this opinion just recently. I remember when it first came out, it smelled smokier somehow. This was the fragrance I first aimed to buy for myself. I was heartbroken to find what exists now. Now it is a shadow of its former self. This to me has become the Cool Water of "luxury" fragrances; Everyone has it.

I bought it when I was in my teen years and now I am in twenties ... I have this bottle sitting there for around 6 years... I hope one day It will finish. I can't even garbage it cuz I remember I was still a high school student when I bought it and I didn't have any source of Income... I was stupid enough that I listened to one of my uncles and bought this devil. It hurts every time I try to throw it away, but I just can't ... It costed me around $150 the time when I bought it. This perfume is damn strong and over powering. I could hardly breathe every time I applied it. It has been 6 years and the bottle is 3/4 full.

Coco Mademoiselle is a dark beast for me.
Instant headache, nausea and nervous mood like a reaction to a dangerous situation!
Since the beginning I wanted to like this one. The bottle and colour is simply beautiful, but the scent... what a nightmare! I owned several samples because it's one of those hyped perfumes and SA keep throwing samples, at least it was so here some years ago. So as a typical paradox I became owner of about 10 ml of one of the perfumes I hated more, haha!
I wrote about it before and even if my feelings became softer in time, I bet this happened only out of resignation. It's just everywhere!
I've worn it a few times, feeling very unease and I got compliments! A few men told me it smells sexy. Again. Exactly like the first times years ago.
Then I left it alone for long time just putting in the category "not me" and hopefully "not anyone in my aftermaths".
I remembered about my beast because a few days ago I was in a hotel at the seaside. In the hall for breakfast when trying to have breakfast I was hit by the usual familiar blast of Coco Mademoiselle and I got very nervous and nauseous again!
There was room for all and windows were open!
It's just soooo invadent like something that doesn't whisper but rather gives a punch or a kick to make you know they are there and need to praise, just in case you didn't notice.
This is the personality I give to this perfume. Not bad or stinking, but just so gross like a woman that put her new boobs in front of another to be admired hoping that the other will feel smaller.

Well, to this day I still couldn't understand why this beautifully bottled perfume makes me feel this way and gives me such a reaction while most scents I can like or dislike without great involvement.
On the other hand a few perfumes gave me the opposite reaction and that was love!
It's not just about scents but something more deeply rooted inside. I know that many people here can understand this almost carnal feeling towards perfume!
Or maybe it is just about chemical reaction. After all we don't really know what they put inside as chemicals. Orange blossom for me is heaven, but in CM it's no heaven at all!

What is so attractive in Coco Mademoiselle? Why so many people like it and find it "delicate"? When I try to wear just a spray and feel miserable, why people make me compliments on how good I smell? It can't be so bad!
The answer is still open for me. I know that in few months I will sniff it again just to see if it's love or still hate.

This fragrance is very sensitive to chemistry!

Ten years ago, when I was still in my twenties, the EDP used to smell amazing on me. It was my signature scent! It was a sweet, musky floral, with a soft, earthy, sexy musky base. I always felt the scent was made exactly for my particular chemistry.

Then, my chemistry began to change. Now, this scent smells very tart, to the point of being sharp, on my skin, and there is no longer any sexy musky base to wait for. The tart citrus and florals now seem to dominate for me. :(

This is a mess with some people's chemistry. Had a friend who wore it all the time and it smelled pungent on her.

Still not a fan of it, there's something really off putting in the whole piece overall...

I smelled it from the bottle and thought that it was much less offensive. I think I just hate the way it smells when mixed with body oils. I don't get why it is so popular. I really, really dislike it.

I sware This Fragrance will get you a harry winston engangment ring.Men love this for some reason.Even my father told me I smell beautiful and he hates all women perfumes.I was reading this book about love spell and oils that been use for centuries to seduce a man.When I look at some of the ingredents,Chanel coco had all of them in it.Ylang ylang,jasmin,musk,orange and turkish rose!! The book said all these ingredents combine was use to seduce men in the middle east,north africa and Europe.It was so powerful that many men would not trust any women that wore those fragrance note.Fearing they would be control by a women .Even the legendary Celeopatra new about this and use it for her advantage:) SO Girls and Gays this is the fragrance to lure a men in your bedroom and take advantage of him!! IT smells so good and make me scream.You could wear this anytime of the year.But I perfer it in the fall and spring.Is for the strong sexy mature women that love to control men.I see why is a great seller and a Favorite worldwide

I was sold Coco Mademoiselle by a beautiful Italian lady in a Chanel Store in Sydney. With her luscious red lipstick delicately painted across her lips, she persisted to tell me the hidden secrets of Coco Mademoiselle, I felt gifted as I brought this fragrance, I felt years of history packaged into the small perfume box, I walked with pride out of the Chanel store to what would begin to be an all new love for the Chanel brand.

To what has now become my new signature fragrance, Coco Mademoiselle drew me in just by the name, Mademoiselle reminds me of marshmallows, subtle and pink. In my opinion, this is a young, sophisticated scent, perfect for either sun light, or moon light, Chanel is Chanel, there is no inappropriate time to be recognised wearing Chanel, Chanel is always unforgettable, growing up my mother always wore Chanel No. 5, to me it represented he for exactly what she was- a sophisticated, feminine, business woman. No. 5 is one of the strongest fragrances to date, however this it's classic signature, richness, I was so delighted to tell my mother about my first Chanel fragrance, we shared the romance of it's history, I'll always remember my mother as wearing Chanel No.5, or smelling of gardenia.

Chanel Coco Mademoiselle is an embodiment of many beautiful notes, one in particular I noticed right from the beginning, was mandarin orange, usually I'm not a fan of anything that smells of mandarin, to me it's potently strong, but blended with orange blossom, rose, patchouli and vanilla bean, it provides a flawless amalgamation of a classic, youthful scent. By day, Coco Mademoiselle presents a classic, high fashion aura, an element of Spring, I've noticed at certain times of the day, the different notes will surface, by day more of the white notes are apparent (ylang- ylang, orange blossom, jasmine), and by night, the base notes of the fragrance are more present (turkish rose, vetiver, vanilla), also by night, Coco Mademoiselle provides a more sensual, expensive allure, which is strong and fruity, yet, timeless in it's character.

Mandarin orange is the strongest note evident in this perfume, I'm beginning to adore this particular note, which works very well with my skin. I'm so proud to be a part of the Chanel legendary, I love everything about this fragrance, of course, there is no negative tag attached to Chanel, after I walked out of the Chanel store, I was inspired to not just wear Chanel, but to live Chanel, I have since then, bought books on the history of Chanel, Coco Chanel, and the timeless fragrances produced by this classic innovator.

Coco Mademoiselle would be what you may call a perfume "wildcard" : It's fresh, elegant and comfortable, the sort of perfume you wear from day to night when you don't know what awaits you along the day; kinda like that shirt or that dress that -while not being original or attracting by itself - doesn't fails you.

It can be worn at the office, at a cocktail party, or simply in company of friends, and it suits women from 20s to 50s with the right skin chemistry.

I honestly don't know why this scent gets such rave reviews,and as a lover of the vast majority of Chanels I find this so far from the others it might as well be a Britney Spears perfume. I can respect perfumes that don't work on me, but this is just *offensive*. It starts with a screeching siren of citrus and fruit, sharp and interrupting like having your TV on low and then having a super-loud commercial suddenly play. It stays this way all throughout its incredibly long dry down (which I must respect), and even after running some water over the scent to tone it down it still screams for attention.

This is a Chanel? Coco must be spinning in her grave. Where is the complexity of No.5, the discord of No.19, the warmth of Cuir de Russie and Coco, the comfort of Coromandel? If what I've read is true and Coco Mademoiselle's runaway success indeed kickstarted the fruitchouli fanaticism I wish I had the power and money to buy every bottle ever made and launch them into the sun.

Coco Mademoiselle is no mademoiselle, no young scion of an aristocratic family full of history and tradition--she's the rich party girl living off daddy's money stumbling into you drunk as a skunk, spilling her fruity cocktail all over your dress/tux and not even bothering to apologize. She merely giggles out a high-pitched "oops!" before weaving back to the bar in precariously high stilettos that cost more than what you make in a month.

I'll try the parfum as I heard it's much more restrained and well-crafted, but I doubt this Paris Hilton will turn into a Princess Diana.

I never wear this in summer as it would be far too strong and cloying in the heat; however, it is a warm enveloping heaven as we are heading into the co
