$240 to smell like chemicals.
I've been wearing Chanel perfumes for more than half my life. I honestly believed that I would go to the grave wearing this fragrance but my latest purchase of it has put me off forever (if I was buried in this I would haunt the person responsible for the rest of their life).
I purchased the EDP for $240 thinking that it would smell exactly how it has for the past 15 or so years. What I actually bought was something with a strong chemical undertone so offensive I now use it to deodorise my toilet.
I thought I must have been sold a counterfeit...version of the product (despite getting it from Myer) so I checked the batch number online and all checked out. I then contacted Chanel to complain and all I could get out the customer service rep was "I'll pass your feedback onto our developers". When I challenged this, I was advised that I should have sampled the product at the place of purchase to ensure it was the scent I'm after. I get better customer service at McDonalds! Needless to say, I will no longer be purchasing anything from Chanel in the future.
Samples are stronger than actual bottles BEWARE
Bought a 200ml of the intense version from david jones because of a sample i was given at the same store, after getting the bottle I compared the two and the sample was clearly stronger! The 200ml edp intense smells watered down in comparison, such a bait and switch and totally ripped off. BEWARE
Used to Love it but now .....
I have been wearing Coco Mademoiselle for nearly 15 years. Always complements on the fragrance. My daughters always said it was a mum fragrance and whenever they smelt it it reminded them of mum. Now no complements, I feel like there is no lingering fragrance. So so disappointed. Now I need to find another signature fragrance. Chanel what’s changed..because it has...
coco mademoiselle intense The smell does not last for 2 minutes! Such a RIP OFF!!!
I just recently bought chanel mademoiselle for $433 dollars. I was promised that it would last for 8 hours but it doesn’t even last 2 minutes!!! I demand my $433 Back! Such a RIP OFF!!! Extremely DISAPPOINTED!!!
Certainly not the old Eau De Parfum
2 weeks ago I bought the 200ml Coco Madomoselle. I’ve used this for the past few years. I just couldn’t smell it on myself. My husband and friends used to comment on how lovely I smelled, not this time. I took it back and they gave me another one, same experience. I returned that one, and I got a 100ml today not opened it yet, but if no difference this will go back and I will never purchase it again.
Why don’t Chanel see these reviews
I purchased a bottle for my wife who has worn this for numerous years. She was very disappointed with it and sent it back to Chanel, got a new bottle and still no good, my wife would love to have her old perfume back but sadly I don’t think they are LISTENING, the scent was totally different and struggled to last an hour, come on Chanel get this old perfume back to its original state so all your loyal customers would again be happy !!!!!!
Coco Madamoiselle ... Sucked In .. Rubbish Do Not Buy
Coco madamoiselle and Coco Madamoiselle Intense look almost exactly the same, Is this deliberate? You should be able to grab your favourite perfume without having to play spot the difference in the bottles. Well the intense doesn’t last .. I will not be wasting my money purchasing this again. Very disappointed as I did not expect this from such a Big name brand. It has made me feel straight Out sucked in.
Absolutely rubbish do not buy this !!
No fragrance apart from the initial spritz fades in 2 mins , absolute waste of your money folks ! My husband bought this for me for my birthday as it was the perfume I wore on our wedding day so he thought !! Wasn't directed by the consulted or informed that it was a new one ! So when I opened it I was like oh this is different and opened it and sprayed myself and immediately new this was going to be rubbish , the word intense gave me a bit of hope I though you know what ! I will give this a try ! But now I am regretting be it and want to return it but not sure how that will go as ii have sprayed it a couple of times ! I am still gonna try !
Chanel Coco Mademoiselle
I have been wearing Coco Mademoiselle for years and always receive compliments on my scent. I recently purchased the new extra large EDP bottle and am extremely disappointed with it. I believe since the introduction of Intense they have lightened the original. I’m am extremely disappointed given the cost of the product. I have not had a compliment since I started using this bottle.
Paid $234.00 and feel like I've been ripped off
I have been wearing Coco Mademoiselle for 10 years and this last purchase is no better than an eau de toilette
In the past where one spray would last a whole day, three barely make a few hours. I have never purchased this perfume at a discounted price as I know Chanel never discount, but feel like my latest purchase is a watered down version of past years. Can't help but wonder if the release of the Intense is why the original is now less Intense. Was going to buy the Intense @ $248.00 but found it too overpowering bordering on sickly sweet. So disappointed and will not be purchasing again.
Not feeling beautiful
I am so very disappointed in my.purchase of coco chanel mademoiselle and the Paris one in NZ I paid over 200 dollars per bottle I tried to return it but they said it's fine I went to another store and purchased 2 more bottles same problem. I have been wearing coco chanel perfumes for the last 5yrs. I am travelling to Australia next month so duty free I will try my last attempt as it's so expensive to just throw away. My fingers are crossed I have been complimented on my.perfume in the past which made me feel beautiful. Here's hoping I can be beautiful again.
Yes, Chanel has had many of its fragances reformulated due to European standards but Coco Mademoiselle is still a favourite of mine, and I think the reformulation works beautifully. Coco Mademoiselle smells sensational and in my case it has good sillage and good longevity. Reviewers should be aware than when it comes to parfums how you feel about a fragance is subjective and your skin also plays an important role, especially when it comes to longevity. Moreover, in some cases there may be longevity but not sillage or vice versa, and people's sk...ins react differently. If you have never bought it before or you haven't bought the new formulation, I think that the best choice for you is to go to the counter, ask for a sample, or use the tester and apply the parfum just as generously as you would apply it at home; then walk around, go back home, and see if you still feel it there hours later. Ask also that to friends and/or family. That way you will not regret your choice because you will know what to expect. I buy my Chanel parfums overseas (I travel often) or here in Townsville at Myer for in Townsville Myer has what I consider good customer service.
Unbelievable con - absolutely no smell
I paid over £100 from The Perfume Store for a bottle of coco channel Mademoiselle - a real treat for myself. What an absolute waste of money and I really feel I’ve been conned. There is virtually no smell to it. Within 2-3 minutes of spraying on my wrist the smell had gone.
On a recent special occasion, my husband actually asked if I’d forgotten to use my new perfume despite me spraying at least 20 puffs.
I will be taking it back to the shop.
Fraud - Coco Chanel Mademoiselle Perfume "Intense" new formula $250
This product is an absolute fraud.
I changed from the Coco Mademoiselle eau de perfume to the "Intense" one. Reason was that it is marketed as more intense and longer lasting compared to the standard one.
This is a blatant lie and fraud. It is not Intense. A totally different and cheap scent and it loses its flagarance within 30 minutes... I called Chanel HO in Sydney who denied everything. I will follow up with my authorised Chanel retail supplier.
Do not buy this product
Questions & Answers
Has anyone had any luck returning this after they have sprayed it ? My husband bought it thinking that it was the original one he got me to wear on our wedding day . It's aweful and I am Soo disappointed !! I want to return it but I though ok let's give it a try ! Am am raging
Not sure how you will go returning it, if it was purchased online, but I bought mine from a Pharmacy, who were only too happy for me to return it. They said that on very rare occasions they may have sold an out of date product but because there is no way of recognising the date on the package it could be returned.
The Pharmacy I purchased from also has a Chanel Rep who they deal directly with. I also needed proof of purchase either a receipt or bank/credit card statement.
