History

Valentino Garavani

Valentino with Liz Hurley

Valentino Clemente Ludovico Garavani was born on 11 May 1932, best known mononymously as Valentino, is an Italian fashion designer, the founder of the Valentino brand and company. His main lines include Valentino, Valentino Garavani, Valentino Roma, and R.E.D. Valentino.

Valentino was born in Voghera, in the province of Pavia, Lombardy, Italy. His mother named him after screen idol Rudolph Valentino. He became interested in fashion while in primary school in his native Voghera, Lombardy, northern Italy, when he apprenticed under his aunt Rosa and local designer Ernestina Salvadeo, an aunt of noted artist Aldo Giorgini. Valentino then moved to Paris to pursue this interest with the help of his mother Teresa de Biaggi and his father Mauro Garavani. There he studied at the École des Beaux-Arts and at the Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne.

His first choice for an apprenticeship, in Paris, was Jacques Fath, then Balenciaga. He found an apprenticeship with Jean Dessès where he helped Countess Jacqueline de Ribes sketch her dress ideas. He then joined Guy Laroche for two years. At Jean Dessès, Valentino sketched furiously, between helping with window dressing and greeting clients for the daily 2:30 pm private showings. Most of his early sketches were lost. However, at a Rome exhibition in 1991 a smattering of them went on display and then-current clients such as Marie-Hélène de Rothschild and Elizabeth Taylor marveled that the DNA of Valentino’s style was already apparent in the layers of white pleats and animal prints.

Valentino S.p.A

The company founded in 1960 when Garavani opened a fashion house on Via Condotti in Rome, Italy with the backing of his father and his father’s associate Giancarlo Giammetti.

Valentino S.p.A. is an Italian clothing company founded in 1960 by Valentino Garavani and part of Valentino Fashion Group, which in turn is owned by the State of Qatar through Mayhoola for Investments S.P.C. Since October 2008, the creative director is Pier Paolo Piccioli. Alessandra Facchinetti was Valentino’s creative designer from 2007 to 2008. Valentino is headquartered in Milan, while the creative direction is in Rome.

Since 2010, Valentino Perfumes has belonged to the Puig company. Its fragrances have included: Valentino Classique for women (1978), Vendetta By Valentino for women (1991), Very Valentino for women (1998), Very Valentino for Men for men (1999), Valentino Gold for women (2002), V for women (2005), Valentino V Absolu for women (2006), Valentino V Ete By Valentino for women (2006), Rock’n’Rose for women (2006), V pour Homme for men (2006), Rock n’ Rose Couture for women (2007), and Valentina for women (2011). In 2020, Valentino Beauty announces the release of a new perfume, Valentino Voca Viva Perfume, and announces Lady Gaga as its égérie

Fragrance Wheel

Description of Notes

  • Top notes: Also called the head notes. The scents that are perceived immediately on application of a perfume. Top notes consist of small, light molecules that evaporate quickly. They form a person’s initial impression of a perfume and thus are very important in the selling of a perfume. Examples of top notes include mint, lavender and coriander.
  • Middle notes: Also referred to as heart notes. The scent of a perfume that emerges just prior to the dissipation of the top note. The middle note compounds form the “heart” or main body of a perfume and act to mask the often unpleasant initial impression of base notes, which become more pleasant with time. Examples of middle notes include seawater, sandalwood and jasmine.
  • Base notes: The scent of a perfume that appears close to the departure of the middle notes. The base and middle notes together are the main theme of a perfume. Base notes bring depth and solidity to a perfume. Compounds of this class of scents are typically rich and “deep” and are usually not perceived until 30 minutes after application. Examples of base notes include tobacco, amber and musk.


What was our Findings

Valentino Voce Viva Perfume is a fantastic fragrance, not just for the value but also for the quality of the product. This perfume will last you all day, so 1 spray and off you trot for the day. Yes there were some bad reviews out there that we found but that`s a story that is consistent to all perfume and aftershaves. With a starting price of £47.00 or $60.00 for my American readers it`s a great purchase for the price and longevity of the perfume. Well lets talk about the scent. When you first apply Voce Viva you get the scent of a very fruity scent of mandarin and it continues through to the scent of orange blossom which is why the perfume keeps on giving. Finally as we have talked about before the musk takes control as it mellows out which will give it that extra longevity.

Public Reviews

  • I couldn’t wait to try this perfume after seeing the advert on TV. It really lives up to what you would expect from a luxury perfume it smells amazing.
  • I bought this for myself after receiving a sample. It is now my favourite perfume it’s absolutely beautiful.
  • The Valentino Voce Viva is a lovely deep and spicy fragrance good for the evening. A great scent for an evening out! Would definitely recommend for a nice gift for the festive season for that same special someone!
  • First of all i would definitely appreciate how beautiful the bottle is. Lots of details went into it, even the cap looks so sexy. Well regarding the fragrance itself i think it is perfect for both day and night time. But i think the flowery smell is over powering. There is a hint of citrusy smell in it, although if it was a bit more it would have been more beautiful and fresh. Still lovely fragrance and stays in for very long time.
  • I was so pleased to get the Valentino Voce Viva perfume, it smells gorgeous. It’s not overpowering, it’s a very feminine fragrance, slightly floral but with delicate undertones which I love. The bottle itself is beautiful, well made and looks stunning on my dressing table. 
  • This is a stunning fragrance, I like a long lasting perfume and this did not disappoint. The fragrance had an almost regal air to it. Highly recommended!
Romance is in the air!


Reasons to consider when purchasing your Perfume.

The reason why some perfumes are expensive really depends on what ingredients it contains which is why fake perfumes are cheaper. Because of this, the products are not natural but man made, to actually copy the scent.

Which is really a false saving because you will over time you will use twice the amount of the fake product for it to smell for the same time period as the original.

There are lots of reasons to consider when purchasing your perfume as the following will explain;

Description of Types of Perfume

  • Perfume or Extrait –  in English is known as perfume extract, pure perfume, or simply perfume: 15–40% aromatic compounds. 
  • Esprit of Parfum (ESDP) –  15–30% aromatic compounds, a seldom used strength concentration in between EDP and perfume.
  • Eau de parfum (EdP) or parfum de toilette (PdT) –  10–20% aromatic compounds (typically ~15%). Sometimes called “eau de parfum” or “millésime”; parfum de toilette is a less common term, most popular in the 1980s. That is generally analogous to eau de parfum.
  • Eau de toilette (EDT) –  5–15% aromatic compounds (typically ~10%); This is the staple for most masculine perfumes.
  • Eau de Cologne ( EDC ) –  Often simply called cologne: 3–8% aromatic compounds (typically ~5%).
  • Eau fraiche – Products sold as “splashes”, “mists”, “veils” and other imprecise terms. Generally these products contain 3% or less aromatic compounds and are diluted with water rather than oil or alcohol.


Once you have purchased your product, where do you store it?

Well most people will put their aftershave in the bathroom or on their bedside cabinet by the window, but this couldn’t be worse for your perfume.

Perfumes hate direct sunshine and damp places like a typical bathroom, so my advice would be to store it in a dark corner of your bedroom and it will last as long as the manufacturer specifications.

Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande-Butera was born on June 26, 1993. Ariana is a American singer and actress. Born in Boca Raton, Florida.

Grande began her career at age 15 in the 2008 Broadway musical 13. She rose to fame for her role as Cat Valentine in the Nickelodeon television series Victorious (2010–2013) and Sam & Cat (2013–2014). She subsequently signed with Republic Records in 2011 after the label’s executives discovered YouTube videos of her covering songs.

Ariana`s  1950s doo-wop-influenced pop and R&B debut album, Yours Truly (2013), topped the US Billboard 200 chart/ While its lead single, “The Way”, charted in the top ten of the US Billboard Hot 100. Ariane Grande maintained her pop and R&B sound on her second and third studio albums, My Everything (2014), and Dangerous Woman (2016), with the former exploring EDM and producing the UK number-one singles “Problem” and “Bang Bang”.

The latter becoming her first of four consecutive number-one albums in the UK. Her trap-infused fourth and fifth studio albums, Sweetener (2018) and Thank U, Next (2019), were both critical and commercial successes. The former won Grande a Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Album, while the latter was nominated for the Album of the Year.

The singles “Thank U, Next”, “7 Rings”, and “Break Up with Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored” made Grande the first solo artist to hold the top three spots on the Billboard Hot 100 simultaneously, and the first woman to succeed herself at the top of the UK Singles Chart. Her 2020 collaborations “Stuck with U” and “Rain on Me”, helped her break the record for the most number-one debuts on the Hot 100.

Ariana Grande’s R&B-influenced sixth studio album, Positions (2020), and the eponymous title track, debuted at number-one in the U.K. and U.S., with the single becoming her record-extending fifth number-one debut on the Hot 100.


“R.E.M” by Ariana Grande

R.E.M Video

Ariana Grande Perfumes – “R.E.M” – Public Reviews

  • R.E.M. conjures up one of my first scent memories and the dream is also a theme.
    At primary school age, a friend was given a small, round bottle made of frosted glass as a present. The lid was a plush rabbit head with a bow on top. Her parents had probably thought of the fragrance as a pillow spray for a peaceful sleep, because the liquid in the glass bottle had an intense lavender smell. While playing on a grey afternoon, we took the bottle and sprayed wildly all over the room until everything was literally fogged with lavender and then rolled up in warm blankets.

 

  • For me, it is a fragrance that I want to wear in grey autumn or winter weather, when I sit at home with a cup of tea and enjoy the rain outside. It accompanies me for some time, five to six hours the lavender is with me and becomes softer and softer. The lavender gives it a masculine touch, the sweetness of the caramel rounds it off in such a way that it can be worn regardless of gender.

Notes for “R.E.M”

Top NotesMarshmallow, Fig, Salted caramel, Quince

Middle NotesPear blossom, Lavender

Base NotesTonka bean, White musk, Sandalwood


“Thank U Next” by Ariana Grande

Thank U Next

Ariana Grande Perfumes – “Thank U Next” – Public Reviews

  • I got this perfume for Christmas and loved it straight away. I get quite a lot of compliments when I wear this and I love the fruity flowery girly smell and that the whole of it’s pink. This is my first and only Ariana Grande perfume and I want to get Sweet Like Candy next.
    Overall, I would definitely recommend this product.
  • Good quality, bought it last month and almost finished it. Delivery super fast and arrived in good condition.
  • Purchased as a gift. They were very impressed and so was I at the prices.

Notes for “Thank U Next”

Top Notes: White Pear, White Raspberry
Middle Notes: Creme de Coconut, Pink Rose Petals
Base Notes: Macaroon Sugar, Velvet Musk


“Cloud” by Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande Perfumes – “Cloud” – Public Reviews

  • For me this perfume is a good alternative to the rather expensive Baccarat Rouge 540.
    When I wore the original and the next day Cloud, I could see no or only minimal difference for the first moment. I find Cloud even a little more interesting. It has a skilful coconut note, which I like very much.
  • First of all: The fragrance is sold as a dupe to Baccarat Rouge 540. Unfortunately I can’t say anything about this, because I don’t own the scent of MFK. Nevertheless, I would like to give my opinion about the fragrance.I like the scent very much in the evening for sleeping, because the sweet cloud of sugar and coconut surrounds me warmly. Shortly after spraying the scent has a very light plastic note, which I don’t like at all. But thank god it disappears relatively fast.

Notes for “Cloud”

Top Notes: Lavender, Pear, Bergamot

Middle Notes: Coconut, Praline, Vanilla Orchid

Base Notes: Cashmere


“Sweet Like Candy” by Ariana Grande

Sweet like Candy

Ariana Grande Perfumes – “Sweet like Candy” – Public Reviews

    • When I’m in a bad mood, Sweet like Candy is such a scent that I come down again and put a smile on my face:))) It cheers me up and makes me somehow just happy:))) It gives me hopes that, even if you might be annoyed for the whole day or if the sun was shining again the next day. To be honest I don’t know why of all things THIS scent can make me happy, so far I can’t really explain it to myself…Do you have a question about any scent that makes you smile while sniffing at the bottle? Would I be interested in mega!:) I love ALL my scents! And everyone makes me happy too, but SLC has something magical about it!:)


 

    • The Ariana Grande fragrances remind me easily of the Juicy Couture fragrances… What I do not find bad now but that, newest are these smells now also again not! Still, there’s nothing you can do wrong with this scent. I wear it when I’m in a bad mood, sometimes when I’m shopping or when I don’t know exactly what to wear in the morning, then I often go for it:) H+S is OK! 4-5 hours I can smell it on my skin on the clothes but 2.hours longer.

Notes for “Sweet like Candy

Top Notes;  Sparkling Blackberry, Italian Bergamot, Pear
Middle Notes; Jasmine Sambac, Frangipani, Dewy Honeysuckle
Base Notes;  Crème de Cassis, Marshmallow, Cashmere Woods, Sexy Vanilla


ARI by Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande Perfumes – “ARI” –  Public Reviews

  • One day when I went to check the mail, my life changed. A random fashion magazine came for my roommate that he did not order. Or at least, he said he did not order it. But that isn’t what this review is about. Not really caring to improve my women’s fashion knowledge, I went through the magazine looking for the scent samples. I found 5 in the magazine, but this perfume was by far, the best.
  • I love perfume in general so hopefully this review will help some people whether if they are debating on buying this or not.
    I fell in love with the scent of this one. I had smelled this originally in one of those little magazine ads but I wanted to wait to smell it in person just because those don’t really do justice for how it really smells.
    Went to Kohls, tested it. Liked it and said I would eventually buy it for myself.
    The best way I can describe the scent is fruit that is sweet, soapy and powdery but doesn’t scream sickly sweet. If you are into the whole fruity/gourmand perfumes such as myself, then this may be up your alley. 

Notes for “Ari”

Top Notes: Crispy Pear, Pink Grapefruit, Juicy Raspberry
Middle Notes: Soft Muguet, Rose Buds, Vanilla Orchid
Base Notes: Marshmallow, Creamy Musk, Blonde Woods

We found prices do vary alot between different companies but lets say £50.00 should get you a decent size bottle

Public Reviews

  • This cologne for men smells fantastic and lasts a long time once applied to your skin. I bought this for my husband for Christmas and he is thrilled with it, and wears it out everywhere we go. This smells even better once mixed with your personal body chemistry. Great, authentic, reasonably priced product.
  • Love the notes it gives you after you apply! Good parfum and it smells good ????????
  • Bought this second time after first bottle ran out ..beautiful perfume I love it!
  • Light Blue by Dolce & Gabbana is, I think, my most favoutite perfume. And Fragrance Direct is the best place to buy it from in my humble opinion. I was super happy with the speed of delivery and the excellent packaging that it came in. And, best of all, the price! Don’t think they can be beaten. One very happy customer here! Thank you!

History

Calvin Klein

Calvin Richard Klein (born November 19, 1942,) is an American fashion designer who launched the company that would later become Calvin Klein Inc., in 1968. In addition to clothing, he also has given his name to a range of perfumes, watches, and jewellery.

Klein was born on November 19, 1942, to a Jewish family in the Bronx, the son of Flore (née Stern) (1909–2006) and Leo Klein. Leo had immigrated to New York from Hungary. While Flore was born in the United States to immigrants from Galicia (Eastern Europe) and Buchenland, Austrian Empire (modern day-Ukraine).

Klein went to Isobel Rooney Middle School 80 (M.S.80) as a child. He attended the High School of Art and Design in Manhattan and matriculated at. But he never graduated from, New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology, receiving an honorary doctorate in 2003.

He did his apprenticeship in 1962 at an old line cloak-and-suit manufacturer, Dan Millstein. He then spent five years designing at other New York City shops. In 1968, he launched his first company with a childhood friend, Barry K. Schwartz.

Klein was one of several design leaders raised in the Jewish immigrant community in the Bronx, along with Robert Denning and Ralph Lauren. He became a protégé of Baron de Gunzburg. Through whose introductions he became the toast of the New York elite fashion scene even before he had his first mainstream success with the launch of his first jeans line. He was immediately recognized for his talent after his first major showing at New York Fashion Week. He was hailed as the new Yves Saint Laurent, and was noted for his clean lines.

Alberto Morrillas was born in 1950 in Seville, Spain where he moved to Switzerland at the age of 10. He studied at Ecole des Beaux Arts in Geneva for 2 years before joining in 1970, the fragrance company Firmench where he has produced over 7000 perfumes in his time at the company. As he is self-taught it’s truly amazing to accomplish so much during his time there.

Description of Notes

  • Top notes: Also called the head notes. The scents that are perceived immediately on application of a perfume. Top notes consist of small, light molecules that evaporate quickly. They form a person’s initial impression of a perfume and thus are very important in the selling of a perfume. Examples of top notes include mint, lavender and coriander.
  • Middle notes: Also referred to as heart notes. The scent of a perfume that emerges just prior to the dissipation of the top note. The middle note compounds form the “heart” or main body of a perfume and act to mask the often unpleasant initial impression of base notes, which become more pleasant with time. Examples of middle notes include seawater, sandalwood and jasmine.
  • Base notes: The scent of a perfume that appears close to the departure of the middle notes. The base and middle notes together are the main theme of a perfume. Base notes bring depth and solidity to a perfume. Compounds of this class of scents are typically rich and “deep” and are usually not perceived until 30 minutes after application. Examples of base notes include tobacco, amber and musk.

 What was our Findings

This Unisex fragrance has a fresh citrus scent at the moment of your first application but not too overpowering. After a certain amount of time the fragrance slightly turns to a bit more of a woody scent and has a pleasant smell. Longevity of the fragrance is about 6 hours and considering the price of £48.00 upwards for a 200ml bottle.

I found that to be a bit of a steal really. Although is a unisex fragrance, I don’t think it was really designed for sharing with your partner but hopefully the case of doubling the market potential of the product. We couldn’t really find a bad review of this product but at that price who`s going to moan about! 

Romance is in the air!

Public Reviews

  • Calvin Klein everyone is an incredible fragrance. It smells really sweet and I can see how this is a male and female fragrance. It smells incredibly clean and is not too much of a strong scent. This can be an everyday fragrance instead of one purely for going out. It smells incredible, Calvin Klein have done an incredible job on this!
  • Really fresh scent and definitely unisex. Long lasting! Nice looking bottle too which wouldn’t look out of place on any counter. Maybe slightly masculine for me but that’s a personal taste.

Reasons to consider when purchasing your Perfume.

The reason why some perfumes are expensive really depends on what ingredients it contains which is why fake perfumes are cheaper. Because of this, the products are not natural but man made, to actually copy the scent.
Which is really a false saving because you will over time you will use twice the amount of the fake product for it to smell for the same time period as the original.

There are lots of reasons to consider when purchasing your perfume as the following will explain;

Description of Types of Perfume

  • Perfume or Extrait – in English is known as perfume extract, pure perfume, or simply perfume: 15–40% aromatic compounds.
  • Esprit of Parfum (ESDP) – 15–30% aromatic compounds, a seldom used strength concentration in between EDP and perfume.
  • Eau de parfum (EdP) or parfum de toilette (PdT) – 10–20% aromatic compounds (typically ~15%). Sometimes called “eau de parfum” or “millésime”; parfum de toilette is a less common term, most popular in the 1980s. That is generally analogous to eau de parfum.
  • Eau de toilette (EDT) – 5–15% aromatic compounds (typically ~10%); This is the staple for most masculine perfumes.
  • Eau de Cologne ( EDC ) – Often simply called cologne: 3–8% aromatic compounds (typically ~5%).
  • Eau fraiche – Products sold as “splashes”, “mists”, “veils” and other imprecise terms. Generally these products contain 3% or less aromatic compounds and are diluted with water rather than oil or alcohol.

 

Once you have purchased your product, where do you store it?

Well most people will put their aftershave in the bathroom or on their bedside cabinet by the window, but this couldn’t be worse for your perfume.

Perfumes hate direct sunshine and damp places like a typical bathroom, so my advice would be to store it in a dark corner of your bedroom and it will last as long as the manufacturer specifications.

History

Christian Dior

Picture of Christian Dior

Dior was born on 21st January 1905 in Granville, Normandy and died on 23rd October 1957 from a heart attack while on holiday in Italy.

In 1928, when Dior left school he sold his clothing design’s from outside his house until he started a small arts studio selling different artists work but this closed down due to Dior having financial trouble due to the deep economic depression that engulfed the business world in the late 1920’s as being the main cause.

In 1937, he was employed by Robert Piquet who was a well-known fashion designer. When the second World War started he joined up. But not for long due to the French capitulation to the Germans, but he was able to continue his work in France at Lelong Co on being released.

In 1946. The House of Dior was established at a private residence with Marcel Boussac who was a wealthy business man. The House of Dior actually celebrate the opening of the company as 1947 not 1946.

The reason behind this is that the first line of clothing was released on 12th February that year.

Although Francois Demachy was training to be a Doctor and Dentist, he actually became a perfumer by accident while working for perfume giant Charabot just to earn extra money for his studies to become a doctor.

After 5 years with the company he was offered a position at Chanel where he worked till he became a Director at Dior in 2006.

What was our Findings

Miss Dior Absolutely Blooming Eau de Parfum is an extravagant floral delight you return to again and again. A cheery and irresistible harmony. Miss Dior Absolutely Blooming is an instant present for you. It is a delightful gift that you cannot wait to get your hands on. François Demachy, Dior Perfumer-Creator

It glides from the sharp charm of a fresh, fruity, citrus prelude into blossoming floral notes, then on to the noble elegance of patchouli, before finally concluding with musk, the last trace of memory.

With a price of £55.00 upwards, we found that Miss Dior Absolutely blooming is an excellent perfume. Very floral scent, that will last you most of the day if applied in the correct areas of your body. It would be a great purchase for you and you would not be disappointed.


Romance is in the air!

Public Reviews

  • This is a classy, lingering fragrance that doesn’t assault the nasal receptors! It’s the sort of fragrance that people passing in the street or in a queue, with you, would enquire about. It’s neither too sweet nor too strong and can’t be pigeon-holed into daytime/night time use
  • This is very nice perfume with a nice bottle. IT’S A CLASSY SMELL LOVE IT… Great value for money. Lasts a full day in my experience.
  • Really lovely fragrance – sweet but not too floral. Favourite of my perfumes. Light enough to wear daily to work etc but also nice enough to wear in the evening.

What was our Findings

Miss Dior Rose N’Roses is a sparkling floral fragrance, a profusion of Grasse Roses refreshed by a zest of Bergamot and heightened by the intensity of a White Musk note.

Vibrant essence of Geranium refines the composition with its lemony aromas to faithfully recreate the irresistible scent of an endless field of flowers. We found that this perfume was an excellent addition to the Miss Dior fragrances and with a price tag of £65.00 upwards for a 50ml bottle it was value for money.

Although there are mixed reviews on the length of time this perfume stays on the skin, we found it lasted most of the day.

Public Reviews

  • Love this Miss Dior Rose N`Roses perfume and the smell is classy and authentic. Just wished it lasted longer on the skin.
  • Everyone who wears this perfume will feel different . I was given this as a gift after falling in love with the fragrance ❤❤Amazing smell! Long lasting so it`s worth the money.
  • Purchased this based on the good reviews as I normally wear Miss Dior. Really like the smell very light and feminine, it is gorgeous abundance of roses. I only wish it would last a little longer throughout the day though. I would recommend this perfume and will be buying it again.
  • The most beautiful smell, my favorite of the Miss Dior range. I just wish it was eau de perfume and lasted longer.

Choose your perfume on whether you are purchasing the product for. Either evening wear or office wear as you really don’t want to be going to work smelling as if your ready to party the evening away.

Perfumes do smell differently on other people, the reason for this is the reaction of the ingredients to your individual skin type. We are all different. The fragrance will not differ much but the difference is there.

History

Yves Saint Laurent

Picture of YSL

Yves Saint Laurent was born on 1 August 1936, in Oran, French Algeria, to French parents, Charles and Lucienne Andrée Mathieu-Saint-Laurent. He grew up in a villa by the Mediterranean with his two younger sisters, Michèle and Brigitte. Saint Laurent liked to create intricate paper dolls, and by his early teen years he was designing dresses for his mother and sisters.

At the age of 17, Saint Laurent moved to Paris and enrolled at the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture, where his designs quickly gained notice. Michel De Brunhoff, the editor of French Vogue, introduced Saint Laurent to designer Christian Dior, a giant in the fashion world. “Dior fascinated me,” Saint Laurent later recalled. “I couldn’t speak in front of him.

He taught me the basis of my art. Whatever was to happen next, I never forgot the years I spent at his side.” Under Dior’s tutelage, Saint Laurent’s style continued to mature and gain even more notice.

At House of Dior

Dior recognized his talent immediately, Saint Laurent spent his first year at the House of Dior on mundane tasks, such as decorating the studio and designing accessories.

Eventually, however, he was allowed to submit sketches for the couture collection; with every passing season, more of his sketches were accepted by Dior. In August 1957, Dior met with Saint Laurent’s mother to tell her that he had chosen Saint Laurent to succeed him as designer.

His mother later said that she had been confused by the remark, as Dior was only 52 years old at the time. Both she and her son were surprised when in October of that year Dior died at a health spa in northern Italy of a massive heart attack.

In 1957, Saint Laurent found himself at age 21 the head designer of the House of Dior. His spring 1958 collection almost certainly saved the enterprise from financial ruin; the straight line of his creations, a softer version of Dior’s New Look, catapulted him to international stardom with what would later be known as the “trapeze dress”.

Others included in the collection were dresses with a narrow shoulder and flared gently at the bottom. At this time, he shortened his surname to Saint Laurent because the international press found his hyphenated triple name difficult to spell.

What was our Findings

Well for me personally this perfume is not my cup of tea, saying this, it doesn’t mean it’s a bad perfume, it’s just not my preference and as 95% of the public reviews loved it, they can’t all be wrong.

On first application you get to smell the fragrance of coffee and Pepper, but not for long so don’t worry as the scent of flowers soon take control and over time a woody scent climbs through.

With a price of roughly about £55.00 upwards for a 50ml, it’s not expensive at all and it should last you at least 6 hours on one application.


Romance is in the air!

Public Reviews

  • I very rarely wear perfume and have never actually bought my own bottle. Typically, I smell the free samples and don’t come across any that make me want to buy the full size. However When I smelled this one I instantly fell in love with the scent! Although I have smelled so many perfumes and none of them had that effect me like this one did. I asked for it for my birthday and now wear very often. I love the vanilla scent to it!
  • Hands down one of my favourite perfumes ever. It has become one of my signature scent that everyone is always complementing me on. Worth every single penny. Simply love it!
  • I love the smell of this perfume! I am quite sensitive to smells, and can become nauseous if it’s overpowering, but this perfume is just a perfect amount. Unfortunately the only downside is I find the aroma does not stay for long. I usually put on 2 full pumps in the morning and by noon, it’s barely noticeable anymore.

History

Giorgio Armani

Picture of Giorgio Armani

Armani was born in an Italian town called Piacenza. He was raised with his older brother Sergio and younger sister Rosanna from his mother Maria Raimondi and father Ugo Arman. While at High school at the Liceo Scientifico Respighi in Piacenza, Giorgio wanted to have a career in medicine.

He enrolled in the Department of Medicine at the University of Milan, but after three years, in 1953, he left and joined the army. Due to his medical background, he was assigned to the Military Hospital in Verona, where he would attend shows at the Arena. He eventually decided to look for a different career path.

On July 24, 1975, he founded Giorgio Armani S.p.A. in Milan, with his friend Galeotti and in October of that year, he presented his first collection of men’s wear for Spring and Summer 1976 under his own name. He also produced a women’s line for the same season.

Armani established an innovative relationship with the fashion industry, characterised by the 1978 agreement with Gruppo Finanzario Tessile (GFT). Which made it possible to produce luxury ready-to-wear in a manufacturing environment under the attentive supervision of the company’s designer. In 1979, after founding the Giorgio Armani Corporation, Armani began producing for the United States and introduced the Main line for men and women.

The label became one of the leading names in international fashion with the introduction of several new product lines, including G. A. Le Collezioni, Giorgio Armani Underwear and Swimwear, and Giorgio Armani Accessories. In the early 1980s the company signed an important agreement with L’Oréal to create perfumes and introduced the Armani Junior, Armani Jeans, and Emporium Armani lines, followed in 1982 by the introduction of Emporium Underwear, Swimwear, and Accessories.

A new store was opened in Milan for the Emporium line, followed by the first Giorgio Armani boutique. Armani’s concern for the end user culminated in the development of a more youthful product with the same level of stylistic quality as his high-end line, but at a more accessible price.

What is your first ‘scent memory’?

The scent of my grandmother’s kitchen, cinnamon, mixed with sugar and other sweet smells. She’s someone I was very close to growing up in Tangiers, in Morocco; I was raised there, although my background is Spanish.

I left Morocco at 17 to study chemical engineering and then at 23 went to Paris and New York, studying to be a nose alongside head perfumers Bernard Chant and Ernest Shiftan at International Flavors & Fragrances – I never went to a ‘classical’ perfumery school and for me, it was more like an apprenticeship.

Bruno Javanovic

Bruno’s inspiration was a memory of his (incredibly glamorous sounding) mother, who’d liberally spray her fur coat with Cabochard (a vintage leather Chypre) before kissing him goodbye when she went to work.

‘I wanted to create an snapshot of the whole image of her in that coat, with the lipstick, her face powder, everything.’ Talking about how special it was for him to remember her smell, that when he missed her while she was at work ‘the scent was a way to have her a little longer,’ he thought this deconstructing theme was ‘a perfect opportunity for me to use my “super powers” to create that again…

Notes

Top Notes: Bergamot, Orange blossom

Middle Notes : Tuberose, Indian Jasmine

Base Notes : Madagascar vanilla, White musk, Virginia cedar

Fragrance Wheel

Description of Notes

  • Top notes: Also called the head notes. The scents that are perceived immediately on application of a perfume. Top notes consist of small, light molecules that evaporate quickly. They form a person’s initial impression of a perfume and thus are very important in the selling of a perfume. Examples of top notes include mint, lavender and coriander.
  • Middle notes: Also referred to as heart notes. The scent of a perfume that emerges just prior to the dissipation of the top note. The middle note compounds form the “heart” or main body of a perfume and act to mask the often unpleasant initial impression of base notes, which become more pleasant with time. Examples of middle notes include seawater, sandalwood and jasmine.
  • Base notes: The scent of a perfume that appears close to the departure of the middle notes. The base and middle notes together are the main theme of a perfume. Base notes bring depth and solidity to a perfume. Compounds of this class of scents are typically rich and “deep” and are usually not perceived until 30 minutes after application. Examples of base notes include tobacco, amber and musk.

What was our Findings

My Way has a floral fragrance and over time it mellows out to a woody scent. Value wise, I can say it’s another perfume that’s worth the cash in your pocket. One spray, will last you most of the day, so value for the money for this beautiful fragrance. The cost of purchasing My Way should be around the £65.00 mark.

Although I found a couple of bad reviews, probably 2 in a 100, this perfume would be a great buy.

Public Reviews

  • This was amazing! Such a beautiful fragrance that lasted for most of the day! Definitely recommend :)!
  • Gorgeous feminine perfume. Fresh and floral but in a good way not a heavy way. It’s just an oh so beautiful fragrance, I love it!
  • I’m not keen on the opening of this perfume but after 5 minutes it changes and smells pleasant. I don’t think anyone would dislike this so it would make a great gift. This is a floral sweet feminine scent for any age. Nothing ground breaking a more safe buy.
  • The fragrance is beautiful, sweet but not heavy, intense for the first half hour. I was happy with this intensity and unfortunately after an hour it’s power weakens. It is a pity that the fragrance blows away so quickly because it is really beautiful.

Reasons to consider when purchasing your perfume

The reason why some perfumes are expensive really depends on what ingredients it contains which is why fake perfumes are cheaper.

Because of this, the products are not natural but man made, to actually copy the scent, which is really a false saving because over time you will use twice the amount of the fake product for it to smell for the same time period as the original.

There are lots of reasons to consider when purchasing your perfume as the following will explain;

Description of Types of Perfume

  • Perfume or Extrait –  in English is known as perfume extract, pure perfume, or simply perfume: 15–40% aromatic compounds. 
  • Esprit of Parfum (ESDP) –  15–30% aromatic compounds, a seldom used strength concentration in between EDP and perfume.
  • Eau de parfum (EdP) or parfum de toilette (PdT) –  10–20% aromatic compounds (typically ~15%). Sometimes called “eau de parfum” or “millésime”; parfum de toilette is a less common term, most popular in the 1980s. That is generally analogous to eau de parfum.
  • Eau de toilette (EDT) –  5–15% aromatic compounds (typically ~10%); This is the staple for most masculine perfumes.
  • Eau de Cologne ( EDC ) –  Often simply called cologne: 3–8% aromatic compounds (typically ~5%).
  • Eau fraiche – Products sold as “splashes”, “mists”, “veils” and other imprecise terms. Generally these products contain 3% or less aromatic compounds and are diluted with water rather than oil or alcohol.

Once you have purchased your product, where do you store it?.

Well most people will put their perfume in the bathroom or on their bedside cabinet by the window, but this couldn’t be worse for your perfume.

Perfumes hate direct sunshine and damp places like a typical bathroom, so my advice would be to store it in a dark corner of your bedroom and it will last as long as the manufacturer specifications.

  • I bought the 100ml despite never having smelt it based on the reviews and comments and I am very happy! Thank you to all the reviewers, this really is perfect at an unbelievable price
  • After using this perfume it has quickly become one of my favourite perfumes! The scent is unlike anything I’ve tried before and lasts a very long time on the skin! I would definitely recommend this perfume to anyone looking for a new one.
  • Have never tried Marc Jacob’s before and I must say it smells beautiful. Not only does it smell lovely the bottle it comes in is stunning. The scent lasts for hours. It’s not too strong of a smell and not to sweet of a smell which is fabulous. Would highly recommend this product.
  • I love this product! The smell, the design, everything!! I opened the box to see a beautifully designed bottle/ bottle lid which took me by surprise. The perfume itself smells amazing and I’m so glad to have been picked to review it! It’s a must have in your collection!!!

History

Christian Dior

Picture of Christian Dior

Dior was born 21st January 1905 in Granville, Normandy and died on 23rd October 1957 from a heart attack while on holiday in Italy.

In 1928, when Dior left school he sold his clothing design’s from outside his house until he started a small arts studio selling different artists work but this closed down due to Dior having financial trouble due to the deep economic depression that engulfed the business world in the late 1920’s  as being the main cause.

In 1937 he was employed by Robert Piquet who was a well-known fashion designer. When the second World War started he joined up.

But not for long due to the French capitulation to the Germans, but he was able to continue his work in France at Lelong Co on being released.
In 1946.

The House of Dior was established at a private residence with Marcel Boussac who was a wealthy business man. The House of Dior actually celebrate the opening of the company as 1947 not 1946.

The reason behind this is because the first line of clothing was released on 12th February that year.

Perfumer 

Francois Demachy

Picture of Francois Demachy

Although Francois Demachy was training to be a Doctor and Dentist he actually became a perfumer by accident while working for perfume giant Charabot just to earn extra money for his studies to become a doctor.

He decided that he couldn’t do both so luckily Charabot were looking for trainee perfumers and so then it all started. After 5 years with the company he was offered a position at Chanel  where he worked till he became a Director at Dior in 2006.

What was our Findings

Dior J`adore gives you a scent of sharpness due to the floral fragrance of mandarin, jasmine and rose but will mellow out during the day.

This is another fragrance that you must try before buying, the perfume suits some people better than others due to your individual skin type but still a great fragrance for us.

Public Reviews

  • This is a really beautiful perfume. It has a sweet, floral, romantic smell that is not too overpowering, and is suitable for both day and night. The packaging is classy and elegant, making it suitable for most ages. It’s long lasting, so I definitely think it’s worth the splurge and will be repurchasing
  • I love J’adore.  I loved it when it first came out in 1999 and I love it now.  I’ll probably always love it.  It’s fresh, clean, a bit fruity, ultra feminine. I’ve seen some reviews that say it smells like shampoo.  You know what?  It does a bit!  But that doesn’t bother me in the slightest. This scent just makes me happy and makes me feel good.  That’s what perfume is all about so J’adore is a stunning success, in my opinion.
  • J’Adore is French for love… and I j’adore this fragrance! J’adore is a stunning and timeless floral scent that turns heads and infuses your senses with a bouquet of Roses, African Orchids, Damascus Plum and Violets. It is perfect for the warmer months when Dior Midnight Poison is a little too rich and indulgent. J’adore is sexy, feminine, and above all romantic.
  • J’Adore EDP is one of the most beautiful fragrances I have discovered to date and I will always have a bottle on hand because I honestly feel lost without it. Even during my early pregnancy when all other scents and aromas would make me feel ill, I could rely on J’Adore to uplift my mood and make me feel a little better within myself. I love this fragrance so much that I am crushing on the newest addition to the J’Adore range, J’Adore L’absolue.

History

Coco Chanel

Coco Chanel picture

Coco Chanel ( Gabrielle Bouheur Chanel) was born on the 19th August 1883 in Saumur, Maine-et-Loire, France and died on the 10th January 1971.

Chanel started living with nuns at the age of 12 and for the 6 years that she lived with them she was brought up in a very strict environment. In the convent orphanage, Aubazine, in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine.

The path that led her to morning prayers was labeled in 5’s hence where No5 came from. On leaving school Coco learned to sew as a seamstress for 6 years and at night, was a singer at cafe-concert in La Rotonde. Where some say that’s when the name Coco was established.

In 1910 the french fashion designer opened her first boutique (rented premises) at 21 Rue Cambon called Chanel Modes and by 1927 owned 5 premises on the Rue Cambon.  Although there were accusations of collusion with the Germans during occupation of France. I feel it was probably true but this lady was a survivor and would do anything to be one.

Perfumer

Ernest Beaux

Picture of Ernest Beaux
Ernest Beaux

Pre 1912

Born in Moscow, Ernest Beaux was the son of Edouard Hyppolite Beaux(1835–1899) and Augustine Wilgemina Misfeld(1843–1906), second wife of Edouard Hyppolite Beaux (1835–1899), who was originally from Lille, France.

After his obligatory two years of military service in France, he returned to Moscow in 1902. Where he started his perfumery training at Rallet under the guidance of their technical director, A. Lemercier.

He finished his perfumery education in 1907, earned a promotion to senior perfumer, and was elected to the board of directors.

1912 onwards

In 1912 Russia celebrated the centennial of the Battle of Borodino, the turning point in Napoleon’s Russian ambitions. For this celebration Ernest Beaux created the fragrance “Bouquet de Napoleon,” a floral Eau de Cologne, for Rallet.

To follow up on his “Bouquet de Napoleon” success, Ernest Beaux created a now lost fragrance, the “Bouquet de Catherine”, honoring Catherine the Great.

This fragrance is not to be confused with a fragrance from Brocard, Rallet’s chief competitor in Russia called “The Empress’s Favorite Bouquet”, which later evolved into the Soviet version, “Red Moscow.”

Bouquet de Catherine was not a marketing success, perhaps due to Catherine the Great’s German heritage at a time of rising tensions between Russia and Germany which would lead, in 1914, to World War I.

While born and raised in Russia, Ernest Beaux’s French heritage brought him into the French army.

While it was generally expected that this war would last no more than a few months. He was not released from military service until 1919. And having by this time seen service in the infantry fighting against Germany.

Then as an intelligence officer and interrogator at an Allied prison camp at the Kola Peninsula at the Murmansk Oblast during the Russian Civil War.

While serving in the French military, Ernest Beaux’s perfumer colleagues at Rallet fled during Russia’s October Revolution to La Bocca, France, to continue working with Chiris.

In 1918 he was working as a counter-intelligence officer on the Anglo/French concentration camp of Mudyug island. Where he was interrogating Bolsheviks captured by the White Russian and Allied armies.

Ernest Beaux, In 1919 released now from the army, settled in Paris but continued to have a relationship with the former Rallet employees at La Boca. He created Chanel No5 in 1921.

Notes

Top Notes : Ylang-Ylang, Lemon, Bergamot and Neroli.

Examples of base notes include tobacco, amber and musk.

What was our Findings

Chanel No 5 is one of those perfumes that you really need to test before you buy. The reason for this is, it can smell great in the bottle but once you apply it can change scent completely as it all depends on your skin type.

We tried it and it was great for us, classy and clean fragrance of Ylang-Ylang then Lily of the valley and finally a woody scent. So be warned try before you buy!!

Romance is in the air!

Public reviews 

  • This scent is sophisticated, it’s not a loud fragrance. Definitely a classic to be enjoyed when you want to feel special. I love the bottle … very simple but elegant.
  • Beautiful fragrance that lingers. I have used this off and on ever since I used to use my mothers when I was a teenager. These days I think it is most becoming on older women.
  • I’m in mourning for my lost scent! For over 20 years I have worn No5, and never once did someone say they didn’t like the scent.
  • My children and nephews always used to say how they loved the smell of me. My clothes and my bedding always had the fresh finishing touches of it.


Romance is in the air!
Public reviews 5-9

  • We thought I had an “off” bottle, however 3 more later, and some research. But we found out that it had to be changed due to some moss and stupid new rules!!
  • But I cannot find anything that comes anywhere near that iconic aroma. Coco would have fought to the end to get the scent back. She was a strong, confident woman, and funny enough. I felt that way when applied, It sounds silly, but I really am lost without my Chanel No5 Armour!.
  • I have searched high and low, for top to low end perfumes, seeking a change from Chanel No 5. But found nothing that remotely compares. Frustratingly every other perfume leaves a sweet sickly or talc finish. No 5 always pulls through with a dark musky mysterious scent that I find myself lusting over.
  • It either suits you or it doesn’t and based on that you either love it or hate it. Initially I found this scent offensive. Upon receiving the satin spray (a more delicate sandal based version, now discontinued) as a gift, my love for No 5 emerged. Wear morning, day, night, any season.

Reasons to consider when purchasing your perfume

The reason why some perfumes are expensive really depends on what ingredients it contains which is why fake perfumes are cheaper. The ingredients are not natural but man made, to actually copy the scent.

Which is really a false saving because you will over time use twice the amount of the fake product for it to smell for the same time period as the original.

Choose your perfume on whether you are purchasing the product for evening wear or office wear. As you really don’t want to be going to work smelling as if your ready to party the evening away.

Perfume do smell differently on other people, the reason for this is the reaction of the ingredients to your individual skin type. We are all different and the fragrance will not differ much but the difference is there.

History

Marc Jacobs

 

Picture of Marc Jacobs

Marc Jacobs was born on the 19th April 1963. After graduating from Art and Design school in 1981 he wanted to further pursue a career in design so he enrolled in the Parsons school of design and while there he obtained the highest school honors.

In 1986, and at the tender age of only 23, Marc launched his first collection and over the next twelve months, his hard work  was noticed by all and would sky rocket him to stardom after he was awarded and became the youngest ever to receive the Perry Ellis New fashion talent in 1987 from the council of Fashion designers of America.

In 1989 Marc and his business partner Robert Duffy joined the design team at the leading US company of Perry Ellis.

Notes

Top Notes – Strawberry – Violet Leaf – Grapefruit

Middle Notes – Jasmine – Gardenia – Violet Petals

Base Notes – White Woods – Musk – Vanilla.

Fragrance Wheel

Description of Notes

  • Top notes: Also called the head notes. The scents that are perceived immediately on application of a perfume. Top notes consist of small, light molecules that evaporate quickly. They form a person’s initial impression of a perfume and thus are very important in the selling of a perfume. Examples of top notes include mint, lavender and coriander.
  • Middle notes: Also referred to as heart notes. The scent of a perfume that emerges just prior to the dissipation of the top note. The middle note compounds form the “heart” or main body of a perfume and act to mask the often unpleasant initial impression of base notes, which become more pleasant with time. Examples of middle notes include seawater, sandalwood and jasmine.
  • Base notes: The scent of a perfume that appears close to the departure of the middle notes. The base and middle notes together are the main theme of a perfume. Base notes bring depth and solidity to a perfume. Compounds of this class of scents are typically rich and “deep” and are usually not perceived until 30 minutes after application. Examples of base notes include tobacco, amber and musk.

What was our Findings

As you can tell by the perfume notes that when you first apply this perfume it will give you a hit of fruits and what a beautiful fragrance it is, fresh, fruity and not too overpowering but will mellow through to the violet petals and jasmine while the musk slowly introduces itself in the background.

On one application you should get about 6 hours of pure joy from this scent which is great value for money and that’s why this perfume is one of the most best selling perfumes  you can buy, hence why it has won award after award.

  • I brought this to my partner for Christmas she absolutely loves’s the smell and so do I so an all round win
  • I bought this a few weeks ago and I am very pleased with it.

Reasons to consider when purchasing your perfume

The reason why some perfumes are expensive really depends on what ingredients it contains which is why fake perfumes are cheaper.

Because of this, the products are not natural but man made, to actually copy the scent, which is really a false saving because over time you will use twice the amount of the fake product for it to smell for the same time period as the original.

There are lots of reasons to consider when purchasing your perfume as the following will explain;

Description of Types of Perfume

  • Perfume or Extrait –  in English is known as perfume extract, pure perfume, or simply perfume: 15–40% aromatic compounds. 
  • Esprit of Parfum (ESDP) –  15–30% aromatic compounds, a seldom used strength concentration in between EDP and perfume.
  • Eau de parfum (EdP) or parfum de toilette (PdT) –  10–20% aromatic compounds (typically ~15%). Sometimes called “eau de parfum” or “millésime”; parfum de toilette is a less common term, most popular in the 1980s. That is generally analogous to eau de parfum.
  • Eau de toilette (EDT) –  5–15% aromatic compounds (typically ~10%); This is the staple for most masculine perfumes.
  • Eau de Cologne ( EDC ) –  Often simply called cologne: 3–8% aromatic compounds (typically ~5%).
  • Eau fraiche – Products sold as “splashes”, “mists”, “veils” and other imprecise terms. Generally these products contain 3% or less aromatic compounds and are diluted with water rather than oil or alcohol.

Once you have purchased your product, where do you store it?.

Well most people will put their perfume in the bathroom or on their bedside cabinet by the window, but this couldn’t be worse for your perfume.

In their first year they produced five fragrances, Bocages, Kypre, Tendro Nuit, Conquete and Tropique. In 1936 the company expanded into the skin care market which it is more renowned for today.

Lancôme continued to sell products up until 1964 when the company was sold to L’Oreal and has continued to use the original name of Lancôme as part of the L’Oreal group.

Public Reviews

  • I’ve always admired this happiness in a bottle for a long time, until late last year I got one! I fell totally in love at first sight!❤️❤️ It has a very unique way of announcing your presence, and it lasts really long, with few drops. I’ll recommend any day to everyone!❤️
  • This is such a beautiful fresh smelling fragrance that lasts all day. Yet another favourite. Genuine product at a fantastic price.
  • I love this parfum. The fragrance is wonderful. I get complements and always asked, “What are you wearing?”. The fragrance lasts all day.
  • Most amazing, delicate, soft, yummy perfume ever! Great any time fragrance… winter, spring, summer or fall. I usually switch my scent each season to match the season, (Such as Dolce’s “Light Blue” for summer and then Gucci’s “Guilty” in Winter) but this perfume seems to go lovely with every season. I get a lot of compliments when I wear it.

Well most people will put their aftershave in the bathroom or on their bedside cabinet by the window, but this couldn’t be worse for your aftershave.

Aftershaves hate direct sunshine and damp places like a typical bathroom, so my advice would be to store it in a dark corner of your bedroom and it will last as long as to the manufacturer specifications.

What was our Findings

Gucci Memoir D’une Odeur is a long-lasting, beautiful fragrance that kept on giving. We applied it in the morning before leaving for work and the fragrance was still there on our return home.

Prices tend to start from £42.00 to £87.00 as it depends on the size and obviously where you purchase it from, so I have to say for the price this perfume was excellent.

We applied the product on in the morning and it lasted right through to the evening, and as a bonus this perfume is gender neutral, so you and your partner could share. It has a unique fragrance that is beautiful and not overpowering.


Romance is in the air!

 


Public Reviews

  • Good perfume excellent fragrance
  • Super beautiful fragrance.
  • Intoxicating but delicate scent
  • It’s a delicious perfume. Very soft and elegant
  • This beautiful scent of memory makes me sad.
  • I completely agree with the other reviewers that this scent is only good when it has been on the skin for a few minutes. When I first sprayed it in the air and on the paper testers in the store I did not like it at all.
  • I was even annoyed that I had sprayed it on my wrist when I was out for the day and wanted to wash it off. After a few minutes though, the scent was so amazing.

History

Coco Chanel

Coco Chanel picture

Chanel ( Gabrielle Bouheur Chanel) was born on the 19th August 1883 in Saumur, Maine-et-Loire, France and died on the 10th January 1971.

On leaving school Coco worked as a seamstress for 6 years and at night was a singer at cafe-concert in La Rotonde, where some say that’s when the name Coco was established.

In 1910 the french fashion designer opened her first boutique (rented premises) at 21 Rue Cambon called Chanel Modes and by 1927 owned 5 premises on the Rue Cambon.

The famous logo above was designed by Coco herself in 1920. Although there were accusations of collusion with the Germans during occupation, I feel it was probably true but this lady was a survivor and would do anything to be one.

Perfumer

Jacques Polge.

Jacques Polge

Coco Mademoiselle was created in the year 2001 by Jacques Polge, who was Head of perfumer at Les Parfums Chanel from 1978 to 2015.

During his time at Chanel he created the following;

1970 – Rive Gauche, Yves Saint Laurent | 1982 – Diva, Emanuel Ungaro |

1982 – Antaeus | 1984 – Coco | 1987 – Senso, Emanuel Ungaro |

1990 – Egoiste | 1996 – Allure | 2001 – Coco Mademoiselle

2002 – Chance | 2010 – Bleu de Chanel

2012 Coco Noir – with Christopher Sheldrake

Middle Notes – Ylang Ylang Mimosa, Morning Rose, Florentine Iris, Italian Jasmine.

Examples of base notes include tobacco, amber and musk.

What was our Findings

The scent of Coco Mademoiselle was a sweet and clean fragrance which was not too overpowering. At first, it was quite strong but over time it gently mellowed as the scent of white flowers and Tonka bean started to come through.

I’ve heard people say its an old women s perfume but strangely it was produced to target the 20-30 age group and it will suit any age group, young or old.

For best results its best worn on a cool day or an evening wear during a cool summer night while out for partying. Once you have applied the perfume that’s it for the day, yes the day, it lasts that long.

When you wear this perfume people will smell you and think “she’s wearing Coco, quality lady”. That’s it right there Quality. This perfume also comes in 2 sizes, very handy hand bag size and a 6.8fl oz bottle!

Choose your perfume on whether you are purchasing the product for evening wear or office wear as you really don’t want to be going to work smelling as if your ready to party the evening away.

Perfume do smell differently on other people, the reason for this is the reaction of the ingredients to your individual skin type, we are all different. The fragrance will not differ much but the difference is there.
