I have been very familiar with Coco EdP over the years. This time it is not me who wears it, but I smell it regularly around me. There almost seems to be a unanimous view that the EdP is the way to go. I happened to try the new extrait on skin last summer. While I liked it a lot (even making me think of a bottle), I would not have recognized it as Coco at all (rather green and fresher instead of oriental plushness).
