For as the title suggests, this is a fragrance perfect 'for the little madam'. Don't worry that's about as far as my french goes, too! Kind of depressing when I think I actually got an A in GCSE French, but anyway, I digress (yet again).
What I really wanted to chat about, folks, was my perfume of the moment, Chanel Coco Mademoiselle. Ah, guys. I've had this fragrance since Christmas, and this love affair is nowhere near ending.

You guys should know by now that I have a long standing penchant for all things Chanel. I have no idea what prompted this but I suppose I have always associated the brand with my mother. My Mum has been a loyal Chanel perfume wearer for years and years. Chanel Allure Sensuelle has long been her signature scent and I have distinct memories of her opening up a little festive red box with a bottle of Chanel inside from my Dad each christmas. So, when I thought it time to delve into the world of luxury perfumery myself, naturally Chanel was the obvious choice. 

So here's the description Chanel gives of the scent on the website:
'COCO MADEMOISELLE draws its inspiration from the fascinating personality of Gabrielle Chanel. The fragrance is the olfactory reflection of an independent thinker who breaks the rules to create her own. The portrait of a woman ready to daringly write her own destiny.'
Ah, all the life #goals, then!

Scent Notes: Now, Chanel describes this fragrance as:
"An oriental fragrance with a strong personality, yet surprisingly fresh. Sparks of fresh and vibrant orange immediately awaken the senses. A clear and sensual heart reveals the transparent accords of Jasmine and Rose. The trail unfurls the pure accents of Patchouli and Vetiver that emphasise the slender structure of the composition."
What I love about this scent is how fresh and feminine it is - these are elements I'm always drawn to in fragrances. If you're similar, this one is definitely for you!

Price: £49 for 35ml, £68 for 50ml, £96 for 100ml - definitely a pricey perfume, but if you are looking to treat yourself, or even dip your toe into the luxury goods market pool, then cosmetics, perfumes or small leather goods are always a good way to go.
(If you are after a much more budget perfume option then fear not, I have a £3.99 scent that I love and will be doing a post on very soon!)

My Thoughts: This perfume is perfect if you're into your feminine fragrances. In my mind, the woman who wears this is a young, independent and carefree fashionista with just a hint of immaturity...
Also, can we take just a moment for the packaging? It's everything Chanel does so well is it not? Classic, iconic, beautiful.

So I think it is pretty clear that I love this perfume! Though, my ever fickle heart is still eager to try another Chanel fragrance once I've used this all up. I'm drawn to Coco, Coco Noir, and of course, the mother of all perfumes, the icon that is No. 5.
