|Chanel's latest Coco Mademoiselle products - bath foam & exfoliant
Chanel's Coco Mademoiselle is (according to Chanel) "a sensual and refined fragrance that combines audacity with elegance". Unfortunately, for me, it combines headaches and migraines. But that's me and more fragrances than not, I'm afraid - it's a large bummer as I love the smell of this one for about three minutes before the headache kicks in. Anyhow, most of my best friends, my mother, my in-laws and my work colleagues wear this and love it. And so many brides whose makeup I've done for them on their big day use this perfume and love it, that I had to start asking them to use it after I'd left!
So for my friends and for my family, and for all those brides, and for all of you who love Chanel Coco Mademoiselle, you'll be delighted to know that the fresh, oriental composition that has enjoyed such unwavering success (me aside!) since Jacques Polge created the Eau de Parfum in 2001, has got two new products joining the scent family to help you feel just that bit more pampered.
Scented Foam Bath
At €89 for a 400ml bottle, this is pricey enough but a nice large size for all that. It's intended to be used as a bath foam, but I've usually found that bath foams and shower gels are pretty interchangeable... and designed to be used either on its own to soften the skin or ahead of the Gentle Body Exfoliant...
Gentle Body Exfoliant
At €65 for a 150g glass jar, this is a rich moisturising cream with gentle exfoliating micro-beads and designed to be used one of two ways - either on damp skin, when the creamy texture transforms into a lotion, or on dry skin for more intense exfoliation. This is intended to soften the skin and prepare it for further moisturisation with either the Moisturising Body Lotion or the Fresh Body Cream in the same scent.
Both of these scent-layering products are Limited Edition (LE) and available from the
