Thread: Kokorico de Jean Paul Gaultier
I've just come home from my fave perfumerie in Copenhagen.
I sniffed Kokorico for the first time, and I loved it.
But, it reminded me of something which I couldn't put my
finger on. I sniffed and sniffed and sniffed!
I decided to buy a bottle, but, just as I was to pay, it hit me:
It's a complete clone of Chanel's Coromandel. I mean, it's
exactly like it. Since I already own a tank of Coromandel; I
didn't buy Kokorico ... what do you guys think?!

It reminds me a bit of Black Xs, the basenotes.

My Current Top 5 Fragrances:
1) La Nuit De L'homme
2) Dior Homme/Dior Homme Intense
3) Pure Malt
4) Le Male
5) Tie: Acqua Di Gio Profumo & YSL L'homme
Oh I don't like Coromandel, so this doesn't sound good.

I hate the bottle, that's all I know!
Sampled it yesterday as well . It's similar to L'instant de Guerlain extreme and actually projects better than the latter .
Hypocrites will always be a thorn in my back....and my middle finger will always be the best remedy.....
A copy of L'Instant
but is it better than LIDGE?
drydown smells like B.O imo, got 2 headshakes in the bus, only had 1 spray on the arm, no go
Just smelled both from my collection. Doesn't smell like Coromandel to me.
Sounds good. Maybe the bottle i bought from Bulgaria will actually be real and i can compare.

Kokoroki = indeed a copy of L'Instant Eau Extreme (with L'Instant being 10+x better).
Comparing it with Coromandel is insane, haha!
No Chanel wearing for you for at least 3 months as punishment.
Call me mad, but I did sense some similarities even with Le Male
I find it confusing that Gaultier's fragrances are often treated with condescension, but are also (in the case of Kokorico) seen as trend setting by the likes of Rojo Dove.

I'm not a fan of Kokorico, theres something in it which I don't like. I don't detect any cocoa or chocolate in it, and to me, it doesn't smell remotely similar to the gorgeous LIDGE
Kokoriko smells NOTHING like Cormandel, putting them on the same field is just wrong. A very lack lustre fragrance with poor longevity and sillage, a really watered down mish mash of fahrenheit ( at the top) and Angel men or any cocoa note fragrance.
A lie is a lie even if everyone believes it. The truth is the truth even if nobody believes it.
Haven't smelled "Coromandel", but Kokorico reminds me of LIDGE (which is richer and finer)
