But Coco is definitely the bigger winner and a masterpiece of Oriental perfumery.
5, spicier, more opulent, an embarrassment of riches.As it is on the mature side, I would recommend this to ladies in their late 20's and in their 30's.If I had to design a gown that matched the scent it would look like a mahogany or reddish-brown velvety gown, off the shoulders, no sleeves, a matching shawl for your shoulders in a scarlet color, and floor-length skirt.I will admit help her win the crown that she wore it better than.Coco opens with glittering gold sequins in the form of citrus.When ovarian cancer took her life, it devastated.This is musky and just a bit hot, rubbery sometimes.The resinous and warm spices, coriander, cloves musk become both powdery aromatic, super fragrant and smoky.You may rest assured that each incarnation is beautifully crafted and true to the original's scent, except that all other editions are a lot softer, with the volume turned down.
The original was a very typical 1980's Oriental on steroids.
She's on you the whole day and into the next day unless you scrub it off or shower.
The original vintage perfume is still available if you go hunting for it online.
Coco is like the daughter.The citrus floral aroma finally settles down into a rose.5 because it's a fragrance I associate with my mother as she wore it as her signature scent and I disassociated myself from my mother after years of conflict.The projection and longevity of the orignal was phenomenal.This perfume is not 100 percent suited to my personality.There is so much I can say about the way these notes develop and how they make me feel powerful, sexy, sultry and even powerful, but I'd rather focus on the technicalities so that you, the reader, who has not yet smelled it, or have.For her this was akin to wearing Elizabeth Taylor's jewelry!When they all come together through sandalwood and a hint of vanilla, then it starts to smell a bit like opium.Before long the Oriental notes of cloves, sandalwood, amber, opoponax and civet emerge.We had broken up in the 90's but we remained good friends and we fought many a battle together.Sorry if I get carried away with all the vintage fragrance references.It was the kind of perfume that announced itself even before it's wearer came into a room.For me this is a more exotic Chanel.Coco can be worn by dudes too because this has a lot of men's cologne ingredients at the base, each which come through and take over the fragrance.
In fact after talking to many perfumistas Coco has received even more praise and love than.
