Hello, dear Posse folks! For the past week or so, I’ve fallen into a bit of a fragrance slump, not really wearing much of anything. But a happy accident the other night as I was digging around/straightening up my bedroom changed all that.
I stumbled upon a mostly full spray bottle of Coco EDT. It had been in a dark makeup bag in my dark, cool bedroom, so how bad could it be?
Turns out it smelled pretty good. I couldn’t tell that anything had gone off, but it did seem to pack a little less punch than it used to, or maybe my nose was referencing the EDP. Poking about, I found a small sample spray of the EDP and tried that on the other wrist. Definitely more oomph, of course, but equally lovely and longer-lasting. (Mine are older versions of Coco, not sure how the modern iterations compare.)
My scent discovery happened with perfect timing, as we were getting ready to go out to dinner, and I always felt that Coco bloomed extra nicely on a chilly night.
And bloom it did. I felt surrounded by a lovely, delicious aura all evening long.
I mentally kicked myself for not wearing it more often; it was a favorite for many years. Way back in the ’90s DH bought me a gorgeous gift set of it and I foolishly sparingly used the body products “saving them for something special.” Arghhh!
But you know, now that I think more on it, my newly discovered EDT spray might just be from that gift set.
Anyhoo, any of you Coco lovers out there? Would love to hear your memories of it and if you’re still wearing it. I know I’ll be reaching for it much more often for the rest of this winter.
