Coco Mademoiselle is the most iconic scent of our century and it’s been one of my favorites growing up. It’s a strong and powerful scent. Tomorrow, on March 1st 2018, Chanel is releasing a gently amplified version called “Coco Mademoiselle Intense” and a few weeks ago, I was lucky to be a part of this campaign.
As you know, we’ve worked on various projects together, this time around it feels even ore special to be a part of this one because it is my first scent-related project. You may have noticed that I’ve started to document my scent journey on social media in the last couple of months, and I couldn’t be happier to share the new “Coco Mademoiselle Intense” exclusively on my blog and social media with all of you today.
As per usual, Chanel produces the best video campaigns, in this one, Keira Knightley (the face of Coco Mademoiselle) is at a very glamorous party and uses as her “Coco Mademoiselle Intense” fragrance as her ultimate seduction tool. No wonder, it’s addictive, sensual and feminine as ever. Watch the video campaign here.
But what I love most about this scent are the base notes. Olivier Polge is the nose behind this creation and “Coco Mademoiselle Intense” is a sweeter yet spicier version of your traditional “Coco Mademoiselle”. With notes of vanilla, tonka bean, amber and patchouli, it is deep yet luminous and carries that Chanel signature that is so recognisable from one scent to another. Sophisticated yet sexy.
I often find perfume reviews very technical especially for those who do not know much about scents. Basically, a perfume is composed of base notes which are the foundation of a perfume. If you were to visualise a tree, your base notes are the roots think, the middle notes (also known as heart notes) are the trunk, they are the core of the scent and the top notes are the lighter notes, the watery ingredients like fruits that you smell immediately, however they evaporate quickly and you are left with middle and base notes, and this is what sticks to you skin.
It’s a beautiful blend, for all kind of women and generations. Definitely a keeper.
I’d be curious to hear your thoughts, send me a message on instagram if you get the chance to try it.
