I’m not sure I have what you’d call a signature scent anymore — I frequently cheat on my fragrance faves in the name of beauty blogging — but there are notes that I gravitate towards and always find myself going back to.
I love airy florals, fresh hints of citrus, and the kind of scents you might find in a 19th-century gentleman’s club, like leather and tobacco. Depending on the season and on my mood, I start the day with a spray of Chanel Chance Eau Tendre, Chloe EDP, Elizabeth & James White, or even a little bit of Zoella’s Blissful Mistful on lazy Sunday mornings.
Coach Floral fits my fragrance profile perfectly — it’s bold with a bit of a playful side to it, it’s floral and citrusy, and it has a solid base of musky notes. Needless to say, it was love at first spritz.
Coach Floral — A Deeply Personal Fragrance
Like most of the fragrances that I’m drawn to, Coach Floral* is feminine and sophisticated. It opens with a touch of fresh citrus and a hint of pink peppercorn spice, a playful combination that immediately draws you in. At its heart, the fragrance is a bold mix of fragrant floral notes like tea rose, jasmine, and gardenia, which develop into musky and woody notes, with just a speck of patchouli essence (nothing overwhelming or headache-inducing, I promise!).
The fragrance is feminine without being delicate, and fun without lacking depth and complexity. It’s not as flirty as Chanel Chance Eau Tendre, as the lightness of Coach Floral is more in spirit than in scent. It’s not quite as sophisticated as a Chloe fragrance either, as it has a more playful side. I would say it fits comfortably between those two scents, but it’s different enough that it’s worth adding to your collection.
Coach Floral is the kind of scent that appeals to just about everyone (who doesn’t like a floral fragrance this time of year?), but that also feels deeply personal. It smells like a fresh flower delivery from a loved one when you least expect it, a quiet moment in a sun-soaked rose garden, or a rainy afternoon strolling around the Versailles grounds.
It wears well, to the point where I can sometimes still smell it (very, very faintly) around bedtime when I apply it in the morning.
Coach Floral — A Rich History, Bottled
The Coach Floral bottle is simply stunning. It’s made of heavy glass and topped with a très chic rose gold turnlock spray cap, a nod to the original closure that first appeared on Coach bags in 1954. The feminine oval bottle is embossed with the Coach logo and decorated with a piece of pink leather, a leather tea rose charm and a rose gold hang tag, the same kind that can also found on every Coach bag. The pink leather and the rose gold cap look amazing paired with the pink fragrance.
I love the clean lines of the bottle and the lack of a cap — you can simply twist the nozzle from the front to the right to lock it so that it can’t be sprayed.
Between the gorgeous rose gold cap, the pink leather charm, and the sophisticated floral scent with a musky base (just the way I like it!), Coach Floral could have been created just for me. It evokes moments of lightness, lush rose gardens and the charm of Paris in the rain, and I can’t get enough of it! It’s a scent that will suit just about anyone, but still feels incredibly special and unique.
