Sillage is close to the skin, but it resists a shower.In the opening is balsamic then sweet rosy yet spicy is quickly appear.Coco Noir was created by Jacques Polge and Christopher Sheldrake.Coco Noir is a deep, dark, dirty patchouli, which is at the same time quite clean and fresh!It is divine and pure luxury and smells like what Coco Noir should smell like. The balsamic sweet base is strongly present on me at the end of the day.There is heavy emphasis on the orange note and the underlying salt adds a sweet softness. Grapefruit, bergamot, francincense, geranium, rose, patchouli, fruit and an added kick of sandalwood. I love the bottle, because it suggests a sweet, balsamic and woody parfum with strong personality, but it doesn't fit to the parfum I smell on my skin.And today there is Coco Noir, a great nocturnal Baroque.Another journey in the wake of a Gabrielle who fully embraced the dazzle of black and Venice, incorporating them not only into her creations but into her life.
I wanted to continue exploring an entire esthetic range of CHANEL perfumery, a range that distinguishes itself from the Florals, one that is illustrated by Bois-des-Iles and Cuir de Russie. It’s what I like to call the CHANEL Coromandel culture, what you see and feel in her apartment.Determined, headstrong, demanding, yet somehow still demure and sensitive.I am completely in love with the fragrance and the way it makes me feel when I wear it, but there is so much to be desired quality-wise.Having gone back and forth between complete disgust and absolute adoration, I’ve settled on the latter.Coco Noir is the smell of inward confidence, of self assurance and actualization.
