I've been after the original Coco for months but a while ago I decided to try this for the colder weather and maybe trade it if I didn't like it as much as I remembered. But, dare I say, it is one of the most underwhelming fragrances that my nose has ever experienced, leaning towards off-putting. I get a slight powderiness, too, along with a creaminess, and this quality is probably what keeps the strong patchouli note from seeming too noxious to me.

Coco Noir reminds me of a cross between Coco OG and Coco Mademoiselle, with a little bit of an airier, nuttier aspect that makes me think of coconut milk although Coco Noir doesn't smell at all tropical. It's a good rendition of the classics I'll admit - it has the Chanel DNA in there somewhere, like a half-sister. Sheldrake and Polge are both fantastic perfumers, and I think this is a very *smart* and calculated release.A beautiful sweet grapefruit start, morphing into a clean, sexy but simultaneously demure floral scent, grounded with the sweet heavenly vanilla, tonka, sandalwood, benzoin and patchouli. Some days you get more geranium, citruses and resins with woods, others is only roses and jasmines with tons of patchouli. I tested another fragrance on the other arm, and I was barely able to smell Coco Noir on me after that.

WARNING: the first moment after spraying it’s a bit overwheming and stife (making a bit towards masculine scents), but soon develops into its best. I LOVE Coco, so I was attracted to Noir and its black bottle, but this is not the dark, sexy femme fatale scent I was imagining it would be. In particularly hot weather I use only the body lotion, but 90% of the time I like to layer the body wash, body lotion and perfume. It has sweetness, it has woodyness, it has a green edge and a slightly spicy bite, but it doesn't veer off into one direction and remains contained. It definitely has some Coco Mademoiselle in the opening, but it's so much spicier and richer that nobody would confuse the two.Each of their fragrances is unique and unlike any other, no matter which scent you choose, it will be the only one among many others. The stylish black/white picture frames have a perfect fit and are also easy to open at the back by means of supple buckles. The base is centered around balsamic frankincense, soft musk, vanilla, and sandalwood accords, and it is underlined by warm and earthy Indonesian patchouli. Coco Noir is pretty and elegant and I wouldn't be upset to get a bottle as a gift, but this isn't a love for me.
