    I wouldn't go so far as to say that Coco Mademoiselle is every bit the work of art that No. 19 is. Oh no no no. I think with Chandler, he's either on or hes off - but hes never lukewarm. I think this is definitely an example of him being off - the entire article, really. Terrible choices, not at all surprising.

    A product placement job masquerading as journalism. That's the NY Times style section her you!

    It's not 19 but Coco Mademoiselle is an excellent fragrance. Same goes for Tommy Girl.

    A quality and useful article for what was intended.

    Love his description of Coco Mademoiselle. A very well balanced and crafted perfume. One of my all-time favorites and usually the first scent I recommend to the young women I know.

    Thanks Tao.

    Have you smelled Tommy Girl?

    I loved it. It has this minimalism, fresh thing about it, that is very unique and almost 'niche' about it (like a L'Artisan scent). I have described it as sauvignon blanc wine notes, mixed with a very light floral (maybe it's the honeysuckle?). Ms. Becker got this one right!

    TG is a woman's fragrance that I would not be afraid of wearing around lots of guys, unlike some of my womans fragrance choices - that's for sure. I will be buying a bottle soon.

    tommy girl is actually a fantastic choice for high school aged girls, i see nothing wrong with the article, altho i have never tried the CK mentioned in it - the chanel and the TG are great choices for the demographic.

    I concur. Perhaps for elementary school girls? Or middle aged women trying to be perky?

    I dont think it should be worn on anyone above 17-18 at most... but its a great starter perfume for 15-16 year olds. you cant expect them all to jump straight into the niches...

    It's a good, simple, very clean scent. Effective but a little boring too.
    I don't think it's fantastic or the end-all of clean fresh scents, but it's attractive.

    4 stars? that's a bit too much though, 2.5, possibly even 3 if i'm in a good mood. 4 stars if i'm drunk, tired of it all, and i got paid for it, 5 stars? not even for a million $.

    Yes, Luca Turin is enamored by Tommy Girl.

    But has he smelled it?
