The House of Chanel started the fragrance fashion trend in the 1920’s, when the release of Chanel No. 5 rose in popularity among all women across the globe! Throughout the years, it is no surprise that the House of Chanel continues to turn out hit fragrances that become iconic classics.
Coco Mademoiselle is an elegant, luxurious scent said to capture the “irrepressible spirit” of the young Coco Chanel. This scent is a sexy, fresh oriental, with notes of bergamot, orange, jasmine, rose, patchouli, white musk and vanilla. This fragrance is a classic and favorite among celebrities like Ashley Benson and Coco Mademoiselle spokes person Keira Knightley!
Around the corner from the House of Chanel in Paris, another iconic fashion house, Christian Dior, has been creating classic fragrances for women.
In 1947, Christian Dior was challenged to create a scent that smells like love. He formulated Miss Dior, a fragrance that is exhilarating and sensual, and exalts extreme femininity. Nothing smells more like love than flowers, and this fragrance has a blend of damask roses and Egyptian jasmine, balanced with fruity Italian mandarins, swirled with amber, enhanced with Indonesian Patchouli, and vanilla. This is a precious and elegant signature scent worn by iconic women like Marlena Dietrich, Grace Kelly and Natalie Portman.

This is definitely a sexy scent.
