Most Helpful Positive Review Different to the original Coco...but still good!
Somewhat similar to the original Coco Mademoiselle but sweeter and warmer, this reincarnation loses what made the original so unique, and puts it almost in the same league as other fruit-patchouli fragrances...which admittedly makes it more generic but isn't necessarily a bad thing either. I was expecting the Patchouli in this to be amped up when I first saw the word 'Intense' and therefore was very excited to try it, however that's unfortunately not the case, instead it's the addition of Vanilla, Tonka and a slight fruitiness that makes it different to the original, and the complete absence of 'vetiver' which gave the original an ever-so-slightly unisex edge. The initial blast has a strong amount of citrus in it too. I do enjoy wearing this, but to me Chanel are playing 'safe' with it, rather than staying true to the 'Intense' promise which could have held a lot of potential if done right. Being sweeter and warmer, this one is more feminine than the original, it also lasts longer on my skin and is perfect for daytime wear. Classy, non-floral and (just like the original) this one also gets me compliments. I love the original but would consider purchasing this variation of it too...even if it's just to give my nose a break from the original - whilst still being able to indulge in a subtle reminder of it.

Most Helpful Critical Review The Original is Best.
I've worn CHANEL since the 80's and I've experienced both the introduction of new fragrances and changes in the old. Somehow, no matter what the product is, the Original is always better! The Intense version is off a tad. This has been my signature fragrance for years and when other people can spot the difference you know you're correct.

It smells great initially and after a few minutes it starts to smell old-ladyish.

My New Go-To Perfume
Maggie from MA
Used to wear Pink Sugar growing up but for the 25th birthday I wanted an more mature perfume. After smelling and testing some on my skin, I decided on this one. It smells so good and I have been getting so many comments and people asking what I'm wearing. My boyfriend loves it, as soon as I put it on he tells me I smell amazing. 10/10
Warm and Cozy Scent for Winter
SEC17 from Roseville, CA
This perfume is VERY strong when you first spray it and I didn't like it at all at first. But once this sits it smells amazing! It gets slightly sweet, warm and has a light vanilla smell. I can't stop smelling it.
Night scent - smells old at first but it's actually great
Maxx from Dallas
I bought the intense and the original and in my opinion I think this is better and brings more notes out than the floral original.
Kabbie from Florida
Like the smell and how long it lasts. Wish it was a little less
I would absolutely buy this Parfume again!
LisaG58 from Lafayette,La
This perfume is light and fresh and last all day long and everyone makes comments about its beautiful scent.
Great for early 20s too
Maxx from Dallas
I honestly thought this would smell like an old lady or way too mature but it doesn't. I will definitely try more products
Smells so good

It smells really old lady-ish. Will never purchase again.
Aprilbaby from Sacramento
I do have both the original version and this intense version and ima just say this intense version is beautiful. This vanilla scent that is added to this version just makes it combine so lovely. I do prefer this one more. I will continue to use both so the other one won't go to waste but this is so much more lovely and warmer.
My favorite scent, next to a Dior scent that has been discon
Glamma from Haslett mi
The scent is heavenly and 'sexy'
Jwelch13 from St. Louis
The original is so bright and iconic but the intense is that plus a sweet/spicy depth from the tonka bean and patchouli. I've gotten a ton of compliments on this and on my skin is lasts all day making it worth the price IMO. If you're like me and like a little extra something in your circumstances ctrusy/florals, intense is the way to go. I wouldn't say you need both this and the original though.
CallanB from Oregon
I've really wanted a Chanel fragrance in my rotation and landed on this, which seemed like a classic scent I could wear for day/work. This is such a beautiful and soft scent. It wears extremely well and smells so classy, but isn't as overpowering as chance or °5. Worth the $$ as you only need 1 or 2 sprays for the day.
I will buy this product over and over
JLW from Michigan
This is a beautiful fragrance for the fall and winter months. I like something lighter in the warmer months. But it is a beautiful fragrance, and I recommend this to anyone!!!
Steffie from Folsom, PA.
This fragrance is simply fabulous. The scent is light but powerful and so feminine. The only reason it didn't get five stars was because the scent did not last long. But I will still highly recommend it to all the ladies out there!!
Kiani from Charlotte, NC
Got it for my moms birthday and she loved it. I keep stealing it from her
Original is better
Nas from Pittsburgh
I have been using original coco M for almost 20 years. Unfortunately I bought the new scent by mistake and I don't like it. It's not even close to what I had been using.
Better than the original!
BAna from Birmingham, AL
I've been a fan of Coco Mad. for many years, and this one is wonderful - a bit more sophisticated and deep than the original, but not at all overpowering. Love it!
Smells really nice
Heather from Arizona
This is a new favorite!
I do wish Ulta wouldn't mail this in a bubble mailer though, especially during the holidays when things are getting tossed around; putting a little more thought into the packaging to make sure it comes in decent condition would be nice for the price of the item.
I Love it!
KJ from Muskegon, MI
I love how it smells and makes me feel!
I would buy this product again
Yami from Stockton California
This perfume is amazing it smells so good
My go to scent!
P.L. Morgan from Illinois
Such a warm sophisticated scent. If you're a fan of patchouli and vanilla then this will not disappoint! Also the scent lasts for hours on my skin. No need to reapply a ton of times to still feel fresh.
Kris from Pennsylvania
This is the strongest perfume I have ever owned. I love the sent, and it lasts forever. 2 sprays on your clothes, it will smell strong for days. Absolutely beautiful sent. I want to have this in my collection forever.
