I have to admit, I wouldn’t generally look at New Look’s fragrance range as I tend to be a scent snob. However, with high-end comes the expensive price tag and as my last bottle of Chanel Coco Mademoiselle set me back over £100 (ok, it was a large bottle), so, finding a cheaper dupe happens to be the best thing since sliced bread…
It’s called Blush, and is a real snip at just £8.99 for a 50ml bottle.
Described as a delicately fresh, oriental fragrance with a heart of Jasmine and Rose. Combined with a blend of patchouli and vetiver to create a scent that embodies the ultimate expression of femininity. A light citrusy, sophisticated fragrance for a sexy captivating woman.
The main thing I enjoy about this perfume(and the reason I keep buying it), is that it smells EXACTLY like the iconic Chanel Coco Mademoiselle. This is my signature scent and I adore it. Whenever someone wafts past me wearing it, I get that warm fuzzy feeling – instantly recognisable, a luxurious unmistakable fragrance.
With the likeness being so striking, I decided to compare the ingredients of the two fragrances and here’s what I found…
- Both Blush and Coco Mademoiselle contain middle and base notes of jasmine, rose, vetiver and patchouli. Thus explaining their similarity – Is this even allowed?
- Surprisingly, to align with Coco Mademoiselle, Blush is also an Eau de Parfum which means it contains a higher concentration of perfume oils than say an Eau de Toilette, allowing for that all-important staying power.
I like to think of Blush as the little sister of Coco, even the bottle design is not dissimilar to the afore-mentioned Chanel. Just a smaller, chunkier version with a spray nozzle. The colour is a subtle pretty blush pink, again think Chanel. Its similarity is clearly the USP (unique selling point) for Blush hence why quite often it’s out of stock, both in store and online. Keep trying though, it’s definitely worth waiting for.
Blush is a definite repurchase for me, I’m on my third bottle!
