Delightful cookies coming fresh from the oven!
I got so happy when I first smelled this. Lemon! It starts with a very invigorating smell like freshly squeezed lemon water. The greenness that comes with it reminds me of the smell of my hands after squeezing the whole lemon–it’s that zesty smell. Nevertheless, this green creates a nice hook on top, to accentuate the citrus facet and give some dynamics.
The scent slowly turns into floral reminiscent of magnolia, orange blossom, and lily of the valley. In their natural form, magnolia and orange blossom carries delicate citrus facet with remarkable floral sweetness. Dewy lily of the valley offers its floral-green features to this extravagant bouquet, adding freshness and glow.
Simultaneously, a sweet and sugary scent comes underneath. It implies the melange of candied violet, balsamic benzoin, creamy tonka, spicy vanilla, and green oakmoss. All create a delightful foundation of the fragrance. This accord brings out the impression of breaking a fresh-from-the-oven cookie into two parts; the crumbs smell buttery, sugary, and a bit burnt.
The vanilla facet in Cookiecrunch is enjoyable and lightweight. Along with the lemon facet that lingers in the middle notes, the vanilla composition imparts the weight of whipped cream or the meringue on top of lemon pie–light and smooth. More interestingly, the green-herbaceous and vanillic profiles of both tonka and oakmoss bold the vanilla outline and magnifies it, creating a vivid silhouette. This facet also retains the zesty facet of lemon and brings the effect down to the bottom notes, making the dry down to have more facade than just plain vanilla.
I personally like how Coquillete Paris build the crunchy, sugary, and buttery cookies accords, yet make it light and fresh with citrus and floral notes. This cookie is pleasing to the nose! I can imagine wearing this fragrance in the middle of the hot summer, and enjoy its lingering smell while eating gelatos 🙂
I was looking at their website and found the brand appealing. It was established in 2012 by Elise Juarros and Rosa Vaia. Today, they have 18 perfumes in their portfolio, divided into three collections: Coquillete Paris, Coquilette No.7, and Capsule Collection. Cookiecrunch is one of the fragrances from Coquillete Paris No.7 collection. Elise Juarros and Rosa Vaia created this perfume in 2016.
I’m so curious about this brand and would love to discover more of their fragrances. Have you ever tried their creations? Which one would you recommend to try next?
