Chanel – Coco Noir Eau de Parfum, one of the ads to the Chanel collection, promises to open the gates toward the Byzantine Empire, bringing it back to life once again. Starting with the Venetian fabrics and colors that inspired the French perfumer of Chanel – Jacques Polge; Coco Noir doesn’t see its ideal fulfilled because it remains an aroma anchored in the modern western landscape. Taking into account the prolonged time Coco Chanel spent in Venice, in 1919, Jacques Polge finds his source of inspiration in this city, which was fiercely adored by Coco.
In her attempt to ease the drama she was experiencing, and that was the death of her beloved Boy Capel, Coco decided to take refuge in Venice, another city of love. The breathtaking beauty of the city and the byzantine markings left by history on this place remained printed in the mind of the designer, and Polge wanted to bring all of these into the light through Coco Noir’s composition.
Out of pompous essences’ category, Chanel – Coco Noir was probably one of the most eagerly expected by most modern women, who anticipated a Venice-like presence, drowned in delicate, elegant, and sensual brocades. Chanel – Coco Noir’s spirit opens up with a note of patchouli impregnated in natural fruit juice, an incipit that successfully represents most feminine aromas these days.
The shyness at the start can be a disappointing one, but the elegance of the composition is the fact that it makes you come back to this perfume every day. It unveils on the skin in foamy layers of bergamot, grapefruit, and sweet orange. Under its own clothing, glamorous and clear, lies hidden a soft sparkling of sandalwood and patchouli.
The warmth of the sandalwood, vanilla, and musk, offers richness and depth to the perfume. Unlike Mademoiselle, the “noir” version is velvetier. Although it delays becoming a dramatic adornment, Chanel – Coco Noir sticks to the skin like warm silk, creating a distinct, yet intimate aura.
Chanel – Coco Noir Eau de Parfum is a contemporary and polished fragrance. It can be word during the day at the office, but if you add just one extra pulverizing, then its bearer can consider herself ready for a night out. It is not a provocative perfume, but the lack of chronology the evolution of its composition approaches make you apply it anxiously, hoping every day for a different olfactory show. Some of the top elements can be considered familiar, such as clear citric, sweet patchouli notes, and white musk. On the other hand, it has quality and finesse, expectancies that were fully accomplished by the Chanel brand.
