Chanel Coco Noir
This could be your next signature scent. The black bottle and intimate, seductive fragrance is for the daring Chanel girl who’s not afraid to stand out from the crowd. With striking top notes of Grapefruit and Bergamot accentuate the floral accord, with Rose and Jasmine, while Indonesian Patchouli and Sandalwood notes add warmth. A modern, very feminine, oriental take on the original.

Bulgari Mon Jasmin Noir L’Eau Exquise
While we can’t wander through the Italian-style gardens of the Renaissance, Mon Jasmin Noir, L’Eau Exquise from Bulgari is the next best thing. The light, pink pomelo is released first and delicately fuses with fresh green almond to form the first chord. The heart of the perfume is like a friendly embrace with grandiflorum jasmine and white tea. You’ll be addicted to the soft nuances of delightful woods and intense white musks that round out the fragrance.
