Reviews of Coco Noir

Sweet fancy Moses I LOVE this stuff! Longevity on my skin is forever, sillage is cozy and minimal, and the drydown is just heavenly.

A bit pricey, but I'm willing to save up for it..... :)

While I do get a whiff of mama Coco at the top, the spices disperse quickly--and what do you know-- it's my old friend, Chance (edp, not edt). I have worn Chance on and off since its debut, and can say that this is close enough to Chance that I don't think it's worthwhile to own both.

There are those who detect Coco Mademoiselle in this one, too. Either way, I don't think the problem is with US as much as it is with Chanel, returning to the well one time (or five or six) too many. Thumbs down not for the scent (because after all, I've loved Chance for years) but for quantity over originality.

The tonka and rose really stand out in this one. More feminine than masculine IMO, but a nice fragrance nonetheless. 7.5/10

This review is for the EDP original version. A lot of reviewers say Noir reminds them of Chanel Mademoiselle. It reminds me more of Miss Dior EDP (current formula). Both have a very strong, very dominant and persistent patchouli note. To my nose, the patchouli almost completely over powers the other notes and persists into the deep dry down.

Some reviewers say they can detect legendary Chanel Coco in Noir, but I do not detect Coco at all. Perhaps a little bit of Mademoiselle, but definitely not Coco. If I had to guess, I would say that Noir was created to compete with Miss Dior current formula or vice versa.

Longevity is weak to moderate, but I find this to be true of all current Chanels, even the Les Exclusifs, and given Chanel's price point, I find this a fatal flaw. Projection and sillage are moderate initially but quickly taper off, and this is true of all current Chanels as well. Overall it is not a bad fragrance, but it is more of a "cologne" than a "perfume" if that makes sense. If I did not know it was a Chanel, I probably never would have guessed it.

Fragrance: 6.5/10

Projection: 5/10

Sillage: 5/10

Longevity: 5/10

I got a sample of this with another Chanel order and I really love it. It has lasted all day. The citrus didn't last long on me, but the woodsy musk and patchouli are with me now, 11 hours after I applied. This might be a contender for my next purchase.

WOW!talking about an attention grabber.In my opinion It is a big point for a perfume when some of people dont like it as it means you have a special perfume who it can't be ordinary and popular at all. whenever you wear a frgrance that you truly love,it makes a huge difference in the way you feel that day,the way you carry your self and the way that you interact with others. Modern, Sophisticated,Confident, Seductive,Intriguing and Elegant.

The top notes are fresh with bergamot and grapefruit.the heart notes are more floral and sophisticated with rose,jasmine and narcissus. finally patchouli and sandalwood mixed togethet in the base notes that's incredibly seductive.this composition is a definition of seduction and richness of a stylish woman as this scent is irresistible for so many men.

COCO NOIR is so suitable for when you have a big event.It is definitely a night fragrance.ideal for a modern lady who want to capture everybody attention and surely for Autumn and Winter.In my mind it is not the best CHANEL but really laudable and beautiful. Expensive but worth every penny.Ladies this fragrance will keep the men coming.


Longevity?Acceptable on my skin.
