I was gifted this perfume for Christmas back in high school, and have been wearing it ever since! I think it is truly a challenge to find the perfume that works just right for you, as everyone’s body is different, and the aromas will react differently with your body chemistry. After much trial and error with numerous different perfumes, I finally found the one!
How long a perfume stays on your body depends on the perfume concentration and your body chemistry, and is different for everyone. For me personally, the aromas stay on my skin for approximately three days. If I were to spray it onto fabric, for example a pillow, the smell lasts a couple of weeks. For added longevity, it is recommended that you layer the fragrance with other products from the same line: Coco Mademoiselle Foaming Shower Gel | Coco Mademoiselle Moisturizing Body Lotion | Coco Mademoiselle Fresh Body Cream | Coco Mademoiselle Velvet Body Oil Spray
In the Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum, the top note is Sicillian Orange, the middle notes are May Rose and Grasse Jasmine, and the base notes are Patchouli and Vetiver. Overall, it has a strong sensual character, but is still fresh and not overbearing.
Eau de Toilette vs. Eau de Parfum vs. Parfum
Eau de Toilette is the least concentrated fragrance of any perfume, ranging from 5-15%. The aromas tend to be lighter and more subtle.
Eau de Parfum is more concentrated, ranging from 15-20%. The fragrance is more saturated and the notes take longer to develop, making it keep it scent longer.
Lastly, Parfum is the most concentrated perfume, coming in at 20-30%. This is the strongest scent, for which you only need a very small amount. The rule of thumb is, the higher the concentration, the stronger the saturation of fragrance and the longer it lasts.
