Have you met Coco?
No? Never heard of it? Alright, I'd like to introduce them to you:

Coco is quite a temperamental lady, the age must not be mentioned here, it is only polite. Just a mature lady in her prime Coco is a little bit special, those who don't know her so well may think she is superficial, shrill and pushy. Yes, well, she always appears a little bit very dolled up, always a little bit too garishly made up, malicious tongues may claim that she has "surely had something done to her face", the wardrobe is always a little bit too conspicuous and colourful, the skirts a little bit too short, the shoes too high heels.
She appears a little bit poltery, a little bit too loud and tactless, has the talent to always appear at the absolutely wrong time and to say the absolutely wrong thing and to always speak without dot and comma anyway.
But she loves the performance and enjoys it very much when you look and notice her.
She always carries her little doggy around. The puppy is also always wrapped in the most original coats and likes to be carried best, because one could get dirty on the street or other dogs could even be bad. So the little dog is a little bit renounced and a little bit uncontrolled yapper, who comments cheerfully and unconcernedly everything, just like the mistress Coco. It is said so beautifully: Like the Lord, like the Lord, like the grumbler But does that bother you? No, not at all!
Because Coco has a heart of gold and she would sell her own grandmother for the people she has taken to her heart if it mattered. Coco is available to everyone with advice and assistance and would give away her last shirt if someone dear to her were in need.

Of course, such a remarkable person in every respect does not wear a shallow, insipid, commonplace phrase.
The Coco has, appropriately enough, THE favourite scent, which seems to be made for her and which also has the same name by chance.
The Eau de Parfum is Coco's absolute favourite scent and a great hit. Because it embodies her whole being so perfectly, as if she had sat model for Mr. Polge for inspiration. In addition, Coco has a lot of endurance and projection, in it are warmth, sensuality, sizzling eroticism and the golden heart. And I mean, to see a touch of opium waving around the corner as well.
Fragrances without radiance and staying power are not for Coco and spraying every moment is not possible.
It has a wonderful oriental touch, beautifully warm and spicy and engaging. The spices really kick in right at the beginning, joined by an unbelievable abundance of flowers that can really spread on resins, smoke and balsams.
And there is also a pussycat purring around somewhere, even though Coco is an absolute doggy fool.

The strong fragrance cloud seems to call out "Look out, here's the coco, clear the way, or I'll push!" But if it comes across as honest and endearing, you can see past the loud appearance. Behind all the opulence is a great deal of joie de vivre and temperament Coco does not like to sit at home in the corner, Coco wants to go out and generously distribute her energy to her fellow men. Because where Coco is, there is life, there it is not boring, there is laughter and whether it fits or not, that doesn't matter at all.

For certain occasions, when it really needs to be a little quieter, Coco takes a glass of Eau de Toliette, which is still quite a blast, but is altogether more suitable for everyday use, more withdrawn and dimmed. There are a few other focal points. The EdT appears lighter, more airy and a little bit more fruity. The fiery heart is a bit cooler, it's more flowery and the purring pussycat doesn't appear so much. Nevertheless the scent is still expressive enough for Coco.
Compared to the EdT, the EdP is ahead of me, even though the EdT is quite wonderful.

My very big and heartfelt thanks go to 0815abc, who gave me the Vintage EdP ❤️ and to Schwälbchen, who made it possible for me to get to know the EdT ❤️
You've got a huge rock in the board with me!

And when I treat myself to a few spritzes of coco, I think of coco and a line from a song "... and after 20 cigarettes my laughter is real again..."

And I'm sure that all of you have taken Coco to your hearts long ago. And being straight is still the best! And Coco EdP works great on men too.

A summer evening dream...
A year ago, I would never have dared to try a women's scent just like that. Especially not from one of the perfume houses par excellence. Today, I have reached a point where the external classification of which gender a fragrance or perfume is supposed to fit to is hardly important anymore. And so lately one or the other fragrance has crept into my collection, which was actually designed for the ladies.

Why I chose Coco as the fragrance from my sample collection today, on one of the warmest summer days and evenings, is rather a stroke of luck. A spontaneous intuition overnight, supported by many great comments and me not sure why the fragrance classification here refers to perfume almost only to autumn/winter - I don't remember Coco from previous tests. And I'm also surprised that hardly anyone here has pointed out how great the Chanel wears in summer!
No sooner said than done. Coco opens with such a beautiful juicy peach as I have rarely smelled before. Though not listed in the pyramid, this fruit association seems to be established by the fresh notes and the flowers. On my skin, the scent hardly seems sweet, little powdery and has only a very, very slender ambergris. On the contrary, the peach is quickly joined by a fantastic, sandy jasmine, which gives the fragrance an accord like sun-tanned, warm skin. More and more, the delicately spicy nuances come to the fore, even if peach remains present until the fragrance disappears. Patchouli in the base is the earliest I can identify, of sweet or opulent ambry, cinnamon or tonka, Coco is - as I said - for me far away.

And so fruity, flowery and spicy Coco carries me through the sun in this weather. Seems absolutely dry and never overloaded, carries me into the sunset to become one with the orange clouds, which in this mood perfectly reflect the scent of coco.

So once again, a women's scent lands on my wish list. And please: a little appeal to all owners: let Coco on your tanned, sun-tanned skin! Try out what heat does to this scent jewel and how it makes the fruit shine and the jasmine blossoms dry And to the gentlemen: if you are looking for a fruity and spicy fragrance, you will find more than enough here. Just don't tell anyone you're wearing the big Chanel...

Who doesn't love the '80s?
Well, I certainly do. The music was never better, the shoulders never wider and the hair never higher The fragrances, and that's what we're talking about here, were (at least the ones I know from that more-is-more era) all powerhouses.
Coco, the oriental offspring of the Chanels, I have always approached cautiously, because my first acquaintance with her...well, it did not go so smoothly. I found her too sweet, too opium, not Chanelli-chic. That wasn't helped by the sweet commercials featuring the sugary, blood-young Vanessa as the bird of paradise that later begat current Chanel spokesmodel Lily Rose Depp with Johnny, the Sauvage frontman and sadly probably unemployed pirate of the Caribbean. Hah, all picture-perfect: daddy, mommy, Chanel baby daughter.
It was time to head out for my vintage EdP splash. (I had first toyed with the idea of deflowering the extrait by breaking the seal, but remembered the movie Artifical Intelligence, in which Coco's extrait plays a very tragic role, and I let it go for now.)
As sometimes happens with splashes when you haven't decanted into a spray flacon, or learned to dab instead of pour, I guess I horribly overdosed.
Whereupon I smelled myself for 2 days after Coco EdP, and partly my fellow men and everything that came too close to me, too.
But that's not bad - because Coco led me with a firm hand through all the feelings and impressions of these approx 48 hours, in which even shower and corona-conform walks could not harm the fragrance veil.
Of course, the scent has hardly been different from my first tests, some of which were many years ago, but now I guess I feel it differently, understand it. After all, I have also taken a bath in it, that convinces the biggest doubters.
Still it's very oriental-spicy, with a fair amount of sweetness. Opium is also still a relative. But Antaeus is in there too, that slight cough syrup note I always found so sexy in vintage. Incense and Shalimar also flash (my ass, Le Lion is Chanel's first Shalimar fragrance twin.)
But overall, the fragrance is still a typical one of this house. It never reaches the overpresence of Opium, my recently deceased beloved mom's favorite scent, which she always wanted you to smell from afar. It also never gets as sticky sweet as many of today's gourmands, nor as synthetic. It's softer and gentler than any of the Orientals of the oud era, and it's incredibly sexy, in an 80s sort of way: not overbearing, but not to be denied. Very edgy and confident,
free and wild. Like a bird of paradise...

Bathing at your own risk
Coco can do anything black can do.
The Diva
The unapproachable
The coquette
The mysterious
The affectionate
The Serious
The Unbridled
The Charming and the Pragmatic.
And even the seductress has it on her.

Coco makes a cocktail dress out of black jeans with a turtleneck, a negligee out of a twinset and a pair of velvet slippers out of plush socks. Coco even lace a suit out of a washed-out t-shirt.

Fresh out of the bottle she paints a riiiiiiiesiges Verpissdichschild, which I like to hang around for shopping, in order to keep away unpleasantly "smelling" fellow men in the queue, who usually also kick you in the heels and breathe their flag in the neck. But you should shop fast, the fuck you will get closer quickly.

Coco marks the spot very well, against Mosquitos she certainly helps ! Wild food would stay for trying. Some dogs and cats have already tried to suck Coco off my arm (no joke). I get positive reactions to Coco from both men and women. Shelf life and Sillage are good approx. 6 hours. Please don't bathe in it. That ends up either in an angry mob or like the perfume or both.

And in case it got too much, just say: "enjoy, was expensive" and counter !

Very helpful Review 37  
Once upon a time..
... a child who was terribly afraid of school.

Nobody told anyone anything about it so as not to get more trouble, not to be more of a target.
The secretiveness cost it strength, the false smile, so that his parents did not have to worry.

The teachers, who should have noticed how much the child suffered and was bullied by his classmates, looked away or got involved.

Every morning the child had a stomachache, his legs barely managed to pedal his bike, which would take him much faster to the place of his daily ordeal.

Day after day, year after year, it waited eagerly for the weekends to recharge its batteries for the next week, even more desperately for the holidays in which the panic and pain would disappear for at least a while.

7 long years full of fear, which still haunt the child today, what is no longer a child for a long time, because every prank, every teasing that happens again to the child's children tears open the wounds again, transforms it into a berserk, who in his rage would like to wipe every person responsible for this pain off the map.

This child lives very deeply hidden inside me and normally I can forget, I want to forget that it is there.
But as soon as I had sprayed Coco on, it began to tremble, to cry, tried to make itself very small, to disappear.
I felt the old panic creeping up in me, suddenly I could smell chalk and table sponges, hear the clattering of many children's feet, feel the gloating laughter, whatever was meant for me, how someone looks over my shoulder during the class test and makes a derogatory remark about it loudly.

Maybe it was a teacher who wore that scent, it almost has to be.
I'm sorry, but I can't describe Coco neutrally.

He smells like fear to me.

On me this is a mean old witch, a relentlessly sour civet-amber
On others - and in low dosage - this is a mesmerizing golden spicy-amber

A beautifully balanced yet still lush, spicy, fruity oriental. Less about single notes or spices. More a rich warming golden wrap. Lovely.
