79. Review: Coco Noir by Chanel’s Jacques Polge.

I must be honest, I have been struggling with finding a good parfum since Hermes’ Un Jardin En Mediterranee and I have since maintained that they do perfumes the best. A massive leap of faith, and I ended up with the Coco Noir, two days after it’s release and I’ve realised that it’s okay to live a little! Can’t let the chronic migraine rule my life! Gave the N°5 an honest try but the heady dry down just made my eyes water, so the only thing my love for Coco Noir has taught me, (besides my new found love for the colour black) is that I can’t be a classic Chanel girl if I were to be one. This contemporary Oriental spin of grapefruit, bergamot, rose, jasmine, patchouli and sandalwood is my best version of Coco Chanel’s classic scent. To me the scent smells like the colour Black. It reminds me of Paris nights in October, smells supremely divine on my skin, the drydown is light, almost talcum like, and the patchouli basenotes are practically calming me as I type. Take a bow, Monsieur Polge. I am a convert, and it’s all thanks to you.
