Coach The Fragrance

Its the most wonderful time of the year, especially if your a fan of fragrance, not only are there tons of new fragrance launches (including the Coach one I am about to tell you about), even more exciting you can pick up a fragrance gift set (or coffret as the fragrance peeps call them) which is normally the same price as the fragrance. This is a wonderful way of layering fragrance and also makes a gift a little more special.  

Coach as a accessory brand is relatively new to Ireland, it was a brand that I first came across on a trip to New York (in Chinatown, if your bags are being copied in Chinatown your kinda a big deal).  To me the brand is very American and will always remind me of New York.

Coach are having a bit of a youthful face lift with new bag designs, a new face of the brand Chloë Grace Moretz and a new fragrance.
When I first smelled the fragrance I immediately dismissed it as a youthful fragrance, you can tell from the advertising campaign and with Chloë Grace Moretz as the face Coach are definitely trying to target a younger market.  As we know fragrances develop and I was delighted to find that Coach developed into a interesting fragrance.

Top Notes:  Raspberry Leaf, Pink Pepper, Pear
Heart Notes: Turkish Rose, Gardenia, Cyclamen
Base Notes: Suede, Musk, Sandalwood, Cashmeran

The first notes are the youthful and sweet but the rose develops nicely making it more complex than the youthful fragrance I had dismissed it as. The fragrance develops from a sweet fruity scent to a rose -musk fragrance.  The brand describe the fragrance as a "floriental fruity scent" which is a perfect description.  If you like the idea of a rose fragrance but would like something deeper than a floral Coach would be a good pick.  While its defiantly a mass market fragrance (the sweetness for the younger women, the musk for some sexy sophistication and classic rose) this idea of the changeable woman is the idea behind the fragrance which is inspired by "the spontaneous energy and chic downtown style of New York City".  The fragrance is supposed to be sweet, sexy and sophisticated, as women we are rarely one or the other. 

The bottle is well thought out - the design is simple yet sophisticated, the logo on the front mirroring Coach's classic design.  Instead of a lid, the spray cap is shaped like a gold turnlock (which turns to open and close the fragrance- an excellent touch) emulating the closures on Coach's bags.  There is also a leather tag on the bottle, again a nod to the brands bag designs. 

Couch is out now and costs 30ML €45, 50ML €70 and 90ML €90

If your looking to treat yourself to fragrance over the Christmas period, hold off until the sales and you might be able to nab yourself a half priced gift set..... sure you would have to buy 2.

Bonus Bit: I am really interested in fragrance, alas my knowledge is severely lacking but I am willing to learn and I love to discover more about fragrance and notes.   I recently discovered The Perfume Pros  who really are the perfume experts.  They are so knowledgeable and friendly, they make fragrance relatable.  They are my must see You Tube video every week.
