I went perfume shopping some weeks back and because I wanted to be adventurous, I thought I'd try something out f my comfort zone. I picked Chanel's Coco Noir and Marc Jacob's Daisy Limited Edition.
I will not tell you lies, I am sorely disappointed. Most especially at Chanel. It was a toss between No. 5 and Coco Noir and I allowed myself fall for the black and gold bottle and after getting a sniff of it, I fell for the implied promise of greater olfactory pleasures. However, it was not to be.
One, the smell fades off really quickly. It does not even stay on the skin at all. Or maybe just on my skin. Infact, 30miutes after use, I kept sniffing myself, wondering if I really wore any perfume. I don't know how Chanel got this one wrong, but they did. Next time, I'll go for No. 5 or Chance. Definitely not repurchasing this.
Now, Daisy wasn't much better, but I didn't expect too much...it was much cheaper and it's eau de toilette, they do not typically stay on the skin as long as perfume. I really like the smell of this one though, smells fruity and summery....like rainbows and sunshine and happiness rolled into one :) and it comes in the prettiest bottle ever, Marc Jacobs is known for his pretty bottles. Still, I will not be repurchasing when it finishes :|
Has anyone used any of these? What are your thoughts/recommendations? I have a couple of empty bottles I classify as all time faves, I'll share with you in another post.
Cheers to the weekend!
