Hello Posse Peeps! My bottle of CHANEL Coco Vintage Extrait came from another fragrance lover who felt they had more than their fair share and was downsizing the excess. Considering how often I give myself a few sneaky swipes with it there is still a lot left in my 15ml bottle. It’s either a 1992 or 2000 vintage by the bottom stamp and glass lid thickness. Pretty sure it isn’t a 2008, too full bodied and a little bit dirty. Ann also loves Coco.

Even lifting the glass stopper out of the CHANEL Coco bottle sends a thrill of butteries through my tummy. Almost immediately I’m hit by the spices pepper and cinnamon. Some flowers are all bunched together with only hints of rose & ylang sticking out. Resins are already working to smooth the whole extravaganza over, to soften, enrich and blend everything into the inimitable Coco.
Once I swipe on my skin Coco almost immediately blooms. It’s thick, deep with layers and every so often one ingredient will poke its nose out. In reality though it’s like looking at a northern Indian silk carpet. Each little colour block is interesting, beautiful, perfectly knotted and cut yet it’s looking at the whole that makes it utterly breathtaking. Plush and regal, a honeyed, spicy, resinous bouquet that quietly announces your presence.
Anyone wearing this beguiling 1984 Jaques Polge masterpiece will be taken seriously. Its gravitas is a powerful weapon in your arsenal. Be it seduction, backbone, business or gala, CHANEL Coco extrait will give you the extra lift and oomph you need. It’s almost impossible to slouch or seems less than you are when surrounded by this nimbus. An especially good choice for all the holiday adventures currently in full swing.
