Review of Coco Mademoiselle Body Lotion
This is a body lotion made by Chanel of Paris. I received a sample size of the product in the 'goody bag' presented at a beauty event sponsored by a department store, that my daughter and I attended recently. We were delighted to each receive a selection of sample sizes of a wide variety of top end of the market products. Coco Mademoiselle body lotion was one of the freebies.
Coco Mademoiselle was launched by the world famous design house of Chanel in 2001. It is classified as a floral fragrance, with top notes of jasmine, bergamot and orange. The woody lower notes are of vanilla and musk. The fragrance is fresh, feminine and very modern. The manufacturer describes Coco Mademoiselle as a daytime fragrance, but personally, I consider it to be a good all round scent, suitable for any occasion.
The body lotion is a light gel type body lotion. It contains moisturising and moisture retentive properties to leave the skin soft and perfectly moisturised with a subtle iridescent sheen. The lotion is highly fragranced with the long lasting Coco Mademoiselle perfume.
The body lotion is easy to use, light and very quickly absorbed into the skin. The body lotion does not feel sticky or greasy. It softens and moisturises as one would expect, but unlike other perfumed body lotions I have used, the fragrance really does last, making it an ideal product for layering with the matching Eau de Parfum or Eau de Toilette. I received a small 6ml sample presented in a plastic tube, which contained ample lotion for several applications. A very generous free sample!
The full sized product is available in a 200ml bottle, my local department store stocks this at £29.99, however a quick web search found the product on www.amazon.co.uk for £25.00, inc. postage, so it pays to shop around.
The packaging of the full sized product is simple and elegant. A tall rectangular box, pearlised cream in colour, with a gold lid and the Chanel logo. The product information is printed in black. The actual body lotion is presented in a tall rectangular, white plastic bottle decorated with a gold coloured band. Both the box and the bottle are stylish and understated.
**Other items in the Range**
Eau de Parfum 100ml
Eau de Toilette 35, 50, 100 ml
Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel, known as Coco, was born in Saumur, France in 1883.
The name Chanel is known all over the world as a leader in the fragrance market, Chanel no5, created in 1921, by Ernest Beaux, at the request of Chanel. Chanel no 5 is one of the most famous fragrances of all time. Apart from fragrance, Coco Chanel is remembered as one of the greatest fashion designers of the 20th century, her fashions were innovative and new to a generation of women who had previously been clothed in the restrictive apparel of the late 19th century. Chanel's modern and fresh approach to female fashion were welcomed by women world wide.
Coco Chanel died in Paris in 1971 at the age of 87.
Coco Mademoiselle Body Lotion is widely available from department stores and numerous on line retailers. As previously stated www.amazon.co.uk are currently selling the product at £25.00.
The range and further information can be found on Chanel's website:-
It must be remembered that fragrances and fragranced products will react differently to different skin types, so what suits one person, may not suit another. A fragrance can smell quite different on another person. It is always best to try before you buy. The store where I obtained my body lotion (Debenhams) are usually very good at handing out free samples, so it is worth approaching the assistant on the Chanel counter and asking for a trial size before you commit to the purchase.
This is a lovely top end of the market body lotion, which I can heartily recommend to others. I love it and although I probably wouldn't buy it for myself, it is definitely on my birthday and Christmas list, should any of my family be reading this!!!
Thank you for reading.
