"For Coco Noir, I thought of Coco and of Coco Mademoiselle too, because it’s also part of the history.
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.
Coco Noir is the smell of inward confidence, of self assurance and actualization.
Determined, headstrong, demanding, yet somehow still demure and sensitive.
It’s a very understated, sophisticated, elegant perfume.
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.A treasure trove of splendours and an endless source of discovery and sensual delight.Then, in 2001, came Coco Mademoiselle, a breath of air that lightens this cornucopia of fragrance, in which everything is simplified and accelerated in a radiant burst of fruit and flower.Top notes: grapefruit, Calabrian bergamot, Heart: rose, narcissus, rose geranium leaf and jasmine.Base: tonka bean, sandalwood, vanilla, patchouli and white musk frankincense.
