Chanel Coromandel Fragrance Evaluate

Chanel Coromandel Eau de Parfum is meant to be a “comfortable and voluptuous embrace” with “intense amber notes.” It’s a scent that begins with citrusy, not-quite-ripe orange notes that get milkier, sweeter, and fewer definable because the flora coronary heart notes come ahead. The bottom notes are extremely blended collectively and create a dry down that’s creamy, virtually chocolaty with the flippantly spiced woods and resinous-like sweetness. Chanel lists Coromandel’s notes as: patchouli, frankincense, and benzoin, however a extra full be aware checklist appears to be:

  • high notes: bitter orange, neroli, citruses
  • coronary heart notes: orris root, patchouli, rose, jasmine
  • base notes: musk, woody notes, white chocolate, amber, olibanum, benzoin, incense

It opened with a blast of subtly, sweetened orange and its freshly-peeled pores and skin off to the aspect. Only some minutes glided by earlier than the patchouli got here ahead and solely a barely sharp citrus really feel is left, much less definable as orange and the sweetness much less noticeable because it grew to become creamier, smoother, and milky.

As the highest notes pale, the guts of the perfume resulted in a wealthy, heady floral high quality with a contact of sweetness coming from citrus that has turn into creamier, smoother, and ripened.

Over the following few hours, Coromandel grew to become hotter, spicier, and smokier because the amber and incense made their presence recognized. It developed a extra resinous high quality, however every little thing felt so blended that particular person notes had been exhausting to discern. There was slight woodiness and earthiness, a contact of spice (which pervaded via most phases of the scent), and virtually vanillic benzoin/amber.

The dry down was extra of a skin-scent, with the notes detectable from an inch or two above my wrist, and stays on the creamier aspect with flippantly spiced woods, a touch of powderiness, and resinous sweetness. The preliminary dry down appeared to begin after 4 to 5 hours, however heady, resinous amber will get increasingly outstanding from there and supplants the creaminess to a point.

For testing, I blind purchased the smaller of the full-sized bottle choices–I prefer to stay and spend dangerously, apparently–nevertheless it got here as a robust advice from a private pal who has an excellent sense of my fragrance tastes. For testing, I used two sprays, which had been utilized to the underside and topside of my wrist space on my left arm. I exploit an unscented moisturizer previous to making use of the scent as that is additionally my swatching arm (aka, extremely parched at any given second) as I discovered scent didn’t maintain effectively right here in any other case.  It was long-lasting (over 10 hours and nonetheless detectable as a skin-scent) with average sillage for the primary two hours with average projection for the primary three hours.

Subjectively, I’ve been having fun with subsequent wears of Coromandel, since I’ve a full bottle, and definitely haven’t any regrets about my blind-buy. I want it to Xerjoff Richwood, which has a variety of similarities in its scent development, however Richwood stays sharper and heavy on the citrus high notes for for much longer than Coromandel, which I want. I deeply benefit from the dry down with its candy, ambery resins, spicy woodiness, and tendril of incense.
