com perfumes magazine - All Rights Reserved - do not copy anything without prior written permission. Coco Noir lacks memorability and for me this is unforgivable when it comes to perfume - the death penalty actually. It is one of the smoothest and easiest to wear out of the line and I would highly recommend adding it to your collection. On my skin, sillage is almost non-existent, but I get this vague hint of lightly creamy, barely fruity (the peach, I think) spices.

This unconventional fusion of citrus and vanilla-like sweet tones is just a prelude to a generous floral heart.

The smell is reminiscent of my grandma when she was going to the opera or concert hall wearing an expensive coat and applying Dior lipstick and powder on her face. A: The heart notes feature May rose, geranium leaves, jasmine, and daffodil, contributing to the fragrance's generous floral heart. The drydown is dominated by the amber-vanilla accord, sweet yet light - not quite thin, but not rich either. I like how the grapefruit note is scaled back from other Chanels like Gabriel and Coco Mlle, while still having enough presence to give a fresh and strident quality to the woods and spices. The sensuality of the May rose and the unique note of geranium leaves are complemented by a magnetic trail of jasmine and daffodil.

At first I can definitely smell the grapefruit which then softens down to the rose and narcissus and finally the patchouli.It isn’t as piercing as Mademoiselle, is all I can say, and I have loved Mademoiselle for nine years now. But if you set your mind to it, the scent reminds me of Coco Chanel, just not as festive, but more warm and enveloping, then I like it! I have to admit, I was a bit intimidated by it as I am not used to a rich and expensive fragrance, no less than Chanel. This is hamburger being sold as tenderloin to the newbies uninterested in or conscious of what real Chanel is - or was.

Instead of the gorgeously blended and slightly powdery orange, bergamot and lemon, Coco Noir starts with a very bright and powdery grapefruit. He’s an old spice user through and through so while I’ll be spraying it on my pillow for the mems until the tester runs out, if you want this scent for a fraction of the cost just go and grab some old spice and a vanilla body spray and you’ll get the same scent. Makes me think of a model in a cobalt suit during fashion week, with slicked back hair and cat eyeliner. Despite its outrageously gorgeous glossy black bottle, Coco Noir is not even especially dark--not if "dark" suggests heavy or deep. As far as it smelling like licorice like another reviewer mentioned, that may be what they get but my dry down is a hot cocoa, I am smitten.In particularly hot weather I use only the body lotion, but 90% of the time I like to layer the body wash, body lotion and perfume. Multi-faceted and noble, tempting and mysterious, hiding night secrets - all this about one small black bottle, which only looks so cold and detached. Now I feel bright grapefruit notes, spices, some suede accord and a little bit of patchouli that I really like!

Each time I wear this, I am more and more impressed - initially it smells a tad mature with a dusty rose (I would say powdery, but I don't pick up much sweetness).

It manages to start off with a bang, quickly lose momentum, then totally vanish within a few hours or less. I used to feel more drawn to this, but with experience now I realize I like my fragrances with more character, especially if they cost quite a lot.This all makes this fragrance far too strong and overwhelmimg to me and more like something that a man would wear almost, despite being unisex smelling in my opinion.
