Coco Noir.

Flashback to approximately 365 days ago – my perfume collection was large, full of sweet sickly scents and very rarely used. When Josh and I moved last summer I gave away 90% of my perfume bottles in the hope of building something a little more streamlined.

As things stand I can count all of the scents I own on my hands! I try to use them all regularly and am really happy with the current collection. So happy I decided I’d start sharing my favourites with you week by week(ish – maybe not every week, save things getting repetitive!)

One of my most recent favourites is Chanel’s Coco Noir*. Like most of my favourite scents, it’s deep, dark and rich, with a hint of something a little oriental about it.


Grapefruit, Calabrian bergamot, 


Rose, narcissus, rose geranium leaf and jasmine. 


Tonka bean, sandalwood, vanilla, patchouli and white musk frankincense.

For most it’s a beautiful scent for evening wear, but for me it’s an all day everyday kind of scent and my favourite so far of the entire Chanel range.

    I think I definitely need to make my perfume collection a little more streamlined as it really is getting out of control! I have a feeling that my perfume wishlist will grow as a result of reading about your current collection though. Hehe.
    This scent really does sound absolutely gorgeous. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I don't know if you can tell from my blog name that this might just be my favourite perfume EVER!?

    It's such an 'evening' scent and because I always wear it for special occasions, the smell of it makes me so happy! Gorgeous packaging too, Chanel does class like no other.

    This bottle is so gorgeous! I've sampled this and loved it, but haven't been able to throw the money needed at the full size. Can't wait to see what else in in your collection – a couple of recommendations for refining my own wouldn't go amiss at all!

    I really like Chanel scents, especially nr 5. I am not sure if the one you like is not a bit too dark for me. I am sure it would work during winter.

    I've just reviewed Rouge Allure! Do you like red lipsticks? If the answer is yes, I would love to hear your opinion here:

    I really love the sound of this scent! Some of Chanel's scents that I've tried in the past seem a little heavy for me, but the notes in this one sound really appealing.

    I have never tried any chanel perfumes, but by the way this one is described it sounds perfect, I really dislike sickly sweet scents, something a little more sophisticated like this would suit me better.

    My life became devastated when my husband sent me packing, after 8 years that we have been together. I was lost and helpless after trying so many ways to make my husband take me back. One day at work, i was absent minded not knowing that my boss was calling me, so he sat and asked me what its was all about i told him and he smiled and said that it was not a problem. I never understand what he meant by it wasn't a problem getting my husband back, he said he used a spell to get his wife back when she left him for another man and now they are together till date and at first i was shocked hearing such thing from my boss. He gave me an email address of the great spell caster who helped him get his wife back, i never believed this would work but i had no choice that to get in contact with the spell caster which i did, and he requested for my information and that of my husband to enable him cast the spell and i sent him the details, but after two days, my mom called me that my husband came pleading that he wants me back, i never believed it because it was just like a dream and i had to rush down to my mothers place and to my greatest surprise, my husband was kneeling before me pleading for forgiveness that he wants me and the kid back home, then i gave Happy a call regarding sudden change of my husband and he made it clear to me that my husband will love me till the end of the world, that he will never leave my sight. Now me and my husband is back together again and has started doing pleasant things he hasn't done before, he makes me happy and do what he is suppose to do as a man without nagging. Please if you need help of any kind, kindly contact Happy for help and you can reach him via email:
