Launched last year, Coco Mademoiselle Intense continues to win hearts over to this day, because let’s face it: we all want to channel (see what I did there? lol) a little bit of that coveted French chic, n’est-ce pas? The newest addition to the Coco Mademoiselle family is the Huile Velours/Velvet Body Oil and all I can say is, you had me at … velvet.
Coco Mademoiselle Huile Velours/Velvet Body Oil (CAN $66.00/200 ml) | Housed in a transparent plastic bottle, this is a spray body oil that is delicately scented with the same sensual notes of Coco Mademoiselle (vibrant orange, elegant rose, earthy patchouli – to name but a few). The ultra fine mist disperses evenly, while the texture of the oil is lightweight and non-greasy once massaged into the skin. What makes this product a winner, in my opinion, is the fact that it’s dual purposed: not only does it instantly moisturize skin and provide a long-lasting hydrated feel, but adds a light fragrant touch that lingers as a whisper throughout the wearing, perfect for anyone who wants a hit of scent without the commitment.
Coco Mademoiselle Intense Eau de Parfum (CAN $290.00/200 ml) | As I had previously reviewed this fragrance in great detail when it launched (read the post here), I’ll simply state that there is a timeless quality to this scent; while it still maintains the brand’s DNA, oddly enough it manages to be both young, flirty, sexy, mysterious, and sophisticated all at the same time. Redolent and simultaneously fresh, this is definitely for all those like me, who may not be able to sport CHANEL’s iconic N°5 (yet, but I’m working on it) but still want to be part of the aesthetic. Also, this bottle with its signature stopper is 100% display worthy. Le sigh …
Fragrance is a huge part of my life, as is CHANEL … so when the two combine, I’m one very happy woman. It goes without saying that this field is also quite subjective and dependant on one’s personal tastes & body chemistry, so you should always try before you buy. One thing’s for sure, I’m so thrilled that I can wear both with such ease.
