Coromandel was launched in 2007 as part of the Les Exclusifs de Chanel, created by Jacques Polge (Chanel 2007).  It’s top notes are: citrus, bitter orange and neroli.  The middle notes are: jasmine, rose, patchouli, and orris root.  And, base notes are listed as: incense, olibanum, benzoin, musk, Tahitian vanilla, wood notes, and white chocolate.

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I decided to purchase Coromandel, but since I adore Chanel fragrances it didn’t seem like much of risk.  Of course, it wasn’t.  Coromandel is scrumptious, refined, and very much what I imagine a fairy tale forest would smell like.  I think if this fragrance had a theme song it would Prokofiev’s, Peter and the Wolf.  Although, it also reminds me of a spice cabinet in an old house – warm, sweet, and engrossing spiciness.

Listen to Sergei Prokofiev’s, Peter and the Wolf performed by the Vienna State Opera Orchestra, with Boris Karloff narrating here.
