Beauty Review: Coach The Fragrance

Email This Post April 2nd, 2007 nicky

coachfragrance.jpgI have been wearing the same perfume for years and although there is a certain nostalgia to that, it can be a little boring too. Every once in awhile I try something new but I can never seem to find a different scent that’s really my style. I don’t like really strong, heavy scents and I definitely don’t want to smell like I’m wearing my great grandmother’s perfume! I am more of a fresh, crisp fragrance kinda girl hence my usual staple of Clinique Happy. Well, last week I got a purse sample of the fragrance, Coach, with a recent order and I decided to give it a chance. Surprisingly, although Coach has been around for over 50 years, this is their first fragrance. The top notes are mandarin, guava, lily and violet. The middle are Genet flower, jasmine, mimosa, and honey. While the base notes are amber, sandalwood, vanilla, and iris wood.  I felt very comfortable wearing this perfume, it was feminine but not overly so and was initially very refreshing and bright. After a few hours, the amber and vanilla base notes were more noticeable, which I also found very pleasing to my nose. Plus, Adrian seemed to like it too and that’s always important! I still have quite a bit left in the purse sample and I am seriously considering buying more when that runs out. The packaging is distinctly classic Coach and their fragrance is available in a traditional perfume spray, a compact purse spray and a portable perfume solid.

    HI N!

    Great fragrance review! I am a crazy fragrance fiend! Perfume is my favorite topic–next to food and makeup!

    Although I loathe everything wtih a Coach logo, I have to admit their fragrance is nice. It is light and fresh. Maybe I can just decant it into another bottle so I do not have to look at those obnoxious CCCCCCC’s.

    Have a great day!
