CHANEL: Coco by CHANEL: LIVE Video Sniff

Hello Perfume Possee, Portia from Australian Perfume Junkies with a solo CHANEL LIVE Video Sniff . I am all alone with a rather special fragrance. It’s filled with my usual screw ups and a bit of silliness, please take it in the fun vein it is intended. My potty mouth doesn’t get too out of control, well, maybe a bit…

As always special thanks to my BFF Kath for shooting and editing and TSO Jin for making it ready to watch on YouTube. And thanks to Alice F for reminding me about one of my faves that never gets enough skin time.

I'm a bit late to the party here, but I love your videos. You definitely made me want to get my hands on some vintage Coco.. like the most effective commercial ever..lol. I have tried the current version, probably at Sephora, and I remember liking it. Vintage sounds pretty awesome. :D

love your video sniffs! :-) It's so much fun to see you really getting into a perfume. Need to go smell me some Coco asap!

Portia, that was the most accurate perfume review ever! I have an EdP spray - an elegant black lucite rectangle with beveled edges in gold, a gold metal band below the cap. It's the Chanel version of the 2001 Space Odyssey black monolith - which is so RIGHT because Coco is out of this world!

Coco is my favourite Chanel, by far, Coromandel and its siblings included. The video sniffs are such a treat, and this one is particularly awesome! Thank's Portia. As Gendalf said, it's these little things that keep evil away.

Excellent fun video Portia! Your enthusiasm is contagious. When I saw what you were going to be reviewing I ran upstairs and got my bottle of vintage parfum and dabbed along with you. GLORIOUS!! My husband was along the hallway in his office and stuck his head around the door - he asked if I was watching a porn flick with all of the ""oohing and ahhing" going on. I just said "No its just your average dirty lil bitch review".... Thanks for the fun Portia - I needed some :-)

Oh yes, we should have an edition (limited, not discontinued) of Portia's greatest hits...this one would be on it! Thanks for making my breakfast so entertaining!

Portia's all time greatest live video sniff! Love it!

Ann October 10, 2013

Hiya, Portia! Love the video! I have been a Coco gal ever since it came out. I remember one Christmas, my DH gave me a wonderful set of the edp, mini parfum, shower gel and body lotion. Of course, these days I am way too perfume fickle to wear a scent consistently enough to use a whole bottle of it AND its body products, ha!

While I have never smelled the vintage version of Coco, I can never make up my mind about Coco. Like CK Obsession, I can tell that it's '80's work and does smell a little dated. But I would never take Coco to be a Chanel. Some days, I like it but other days, no it's just not for me. I do have a little bit of the parfum version to try out.

Musette October 10, 2013

this was one of the most fun moments I've had in AGES!!!! I just LOVED this! March has a very interesting Coco story, which I will let her tell - but that story is the backstory to how I got hooked-ish on Coco. I have a vintage bottle she gave me and BLAM-OLA! is that some fabulosity, right there! You are just adorable, darling!!! xoxoxoA

I've always loved Coco. I almost wore it today actually. The vintage is better than the modern but all I have now is the modern one. It's still better than some of the other stuff out there at least. You are just too darn adorable! Love your video sniffs.

Lavanya October 10, 2013

LOVED LOVED LOVED the video!! And just a few seconds in to the video I went straight to evilbay..:) I'd never been tempted to sniff Coco till March compared Marni to 'wearing Coco and eating necco wafers'..I smelled the current version and thought it was quite nice. Now I MUST sniff the vintage! Thanks Portia!

Mary P. October 10, 2013

All of your video reviews are wonderful, but I think of all of them I love this one the best. You are so much fun to watch and I can tell your love of fragrance is real and passionate. You are fantastic Portia! Oh, and I adore Coco as well, especially the vintage. I understand the swoon because that's almost what I do after I spray it on as well, haha!

fleurdelys October 10, 2013

Wait, I'm not clear on this - do you like Coco or not? HA! I so enjoyed your enjoyment of this fragrance. Oddly enough (being the oriental lover that I am), Coco didn't appeal to me at first test. I'll have to keep my mind open and give this one another try.

Janice October 10, 2013

I will! I knew it from way, way, way back but never had a bottle of it myself. Then when I got the perfume obsession, I got just a sample to revisit it.

Janice October 10, 2013

I love this too, and I do have a little bit of the parfum but I never seem to wear it. Thanks for the reminder!

rosarita October 10, 2013

Portia, I've been wearing Coco since the beginning, it's one of my all time favorites. Loved watching you experience it's gorgeousness for the first time!
