On the top of the Chanel's Coco Mademoiselle are citrus notes written on the fragrance to make it easy to identify the citrus flavor that Jacques Polge is known for.

How best to wear it

  1. Dab or Rub on skin

If you like to make your perfume more transparent, then try dabbing it onto your skin instead of spraying it. The neck and wrists are perfect spots for this type of application.

  1. Spray-on hair or Clothes

The warmer you get, the sooner your scent evaporates. So, if you care to get hot – attempt to apply perfume to your clothes or hair, instead of spraying it directly to your skin. Be cautious with fragile fabrics to avoid stains.

  1. Add to your body lotion

Improve the lifespan of your perfume by blending it with unscented covering lotion. Just add a few sprinkles to the cream in your hand, then apply to your body. You will smell lovely all day!

  1. Take a perfumed bath

What can be more gratifying than bathing in the perfume you love? Add like 2 drops of perfume or 3-4 sprays of Eau de Toilette to a calm bath. It’s a real treat!
