Back in 2001 when Maison Chanel launched Coco Mademoiselle, it quickly kickstarted the trend for unconventional scents thanks to its sensual composition. A two-tiered fragrance that combines the zest of citrus with the sophistication of patchouli, it was crafted for the rebellious woman who is the very definition of elegance.
Sensual, captivating, and seductive are only a few words that describe a Chanel perfume. One of the most praised fashion houses in the world, Chanel crafts timeless, precious and delicate perfumes. Fast forward 17 years later, the Coco Mademoiselle gets an update by way of added depth to its scent profile with a newly launched eau de parfum. Catered for those who aren’t afriad to embrace their follies and passionate pursuits, the reinvented fragrance captivates with its strong character.
Top notes: Sicilian orange, Calabrian bergamot
Heart notes: Jasmine, Roses
Base notes: Madagascar vanilla, Tonka bean, Patchouli
The result is a heady scent comprising of citrusy and woody notes, accented with a fruity touch. At first whiff, Sicilian orange and Calabrian bergamot take charge, giving way to the magnetism of Indonesian patchouli, rose and jasmine. But what makes it stand out is the amber accords of Tonka bean and Madagascar vanilla absolutes — a subtle way of creating a whole new intensity to the patchouli without overwhelming it completely.
Created by Oliver Polge, Coco Mademoiselle Intense promises to be more powerful, with a more deeper aroma coming with an intense oriental/woody composition. Even though it opens with fresh Sicilian orange and Calabrian bergamot, it unveils its real character with woody notes of Tonka bean and patchouli mixed with floral accords of roses and jasmine.
It might be an understatement that the Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum Intense is taking sensuality up a notch. “I wanted to remain close to the original formula, while giving it a whole new dimension. I wanted to increase the proportions of fractionated patchouli. Push it to the limit. Unleash its power on the skin without altering the freshness of the top notes.
The Sicilian orange and Calabrian bergamot, as well as the fruity accent that distinguishes Coco Mademoiselle can still be identified, but within a few minutes, the Indonesian patchouli takes root and winds itself around the heart of rose and jasmine, ‘giving it a whole new dimension’, explains Olivier Polge. To create an even more magnetic and enduring fragrance, Olivier combined a higher proportion of patchouli leaves with an ambery accord composed of Tonka bean and Madagascar vanilla absolutes. This is a delicate way of adding depth to the structure of patchouli and portraying Coco Mademoiselle EdP Intense even more addictive.
The bottle design remains the same, while the color of the perfume appears to be more gold intense. Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Intense is available in 50 and 100ml Eau de Parfum.
