IMBB Sponsored Product
Today I am going to review my second IMBB sponsored product for you all. I will start it with a story, 2 years back I travelled to the US for work purpose and that was my first visit there. On very next day of reaching there I and a colleague of mine went to a nearby mall to get the feel of the city. The mall was huge and it had many luxury brands there, while browsing through the shops we came near this shop where people where standing in a queue. The guard used to open the door once every 10-15 minutes and used to take only 10 people inside. It looked hilarious to us but at the same time we were curious to know what is there inside. We also went and stood in the queue and after sometime we were inside a chic, sophisticated shop and that was my first visit to Coach. Needless to say I did not buy anything that day as I was not sure what to buy, but I had wish to go there back again and get soothing nice for myself. However every time I went there I was in hurry to shop other things and never get to buy anything from coach but when I saw the Coach Poppy Flower Eau de Parfum in IMBB sponsored product list I had to get it. So finally I have a Coach perfume with me and all credit of that goes to the lovely IMBB team, thank you guys big hug to you.
Price: for 100 ml I paid 7255 but in US one can get it for 85$
What Product claims: Poppy Flower mixes bright fruits with soft florals to capture the romantic side of the Coach Poppy attitude. Sparkling notes of citrus, lychee and cassis blend with water lily and jasmine petals to create an airy, lighthearted fragrance. Style: Chic. Vibrant. Whimsical.
My experience with Coach Poppy Flower Eau de Parfum
let us start it from start, As soon as I received my parcel I got super excited. I was jumping with joy like a little girl and was busy showing my new Coach perfume to all my colleagues. I applied it on me, and few of my friends also sprayed it on their wrist to get check the fragrance. One of them told me, oh it’s a citrusy small just after applying it. I told her “no it’s a floral scent; just the top note is citrusy.” She did not believe me and left after some 40 minutes she pinged me to say that I was right and she is smelling floral notes now. Yes that precisely you can make out the top, heart and bottom notes in this perfume. When Applied it feels like a bust of citrusy fruit which feels very fresh and young, as it settles down (by 20-30 minutes) the fragrance of flowers are more prominent. Though the name if Coach Poppy but the scent of rose, and water lily is what I get as heart notes. it smells same to me till 2-3 hours after which I get faint feel of musk and sandlewood and that too I started feeling them after reading that these are the base notes. By look and name it feels like an all in all floral perfume but to me it smells like a fresh, aquatic floral perfume. Floral notes are not very strong or over powering, they are light. As this is a designer perfume, one tend to think that it will be like a mature kind of smell but it is a very young and feminine smell, which is not very sweet or girly but is chic. About the best suited time to wear, I feel it is a very versatile fragrance which can be worn to work as well as to parties. To me this fragrance feels suitable for day as well as night wear.
Coming to the packaging, It comes in a pink box which has coach Poppy and hearts printed on it all over in while and silver. The box looks very girly and fun. Perfume is packed in round glass bottle with Couch sigh on it printed in sliver on pink background. It has silver cap which also has coach printed on it all over, there is also a pink bow around the cap which looks very cute ☺. There is nothing over the top in the packaging but it’s very fashionable in its own way and I Love it.
As this is an EDP which is more concentrated, it scores very well on staying part too. It says on me for like whole day. First 3 hours the smell is more prominent, people 2 feet away can also feel it. After that it faints, still it lingers on me full day. So I can say it has affective staying power of 6 hours after which one can still feel it on them now and then ☺ however it you spray it on cloths then it lasts even longer, cloths smell of this perfume till next wash.
Pros of Coach Poppy Flower Eau de Parfum:
• Chic yet young at heart fragrance.
• Fresh flowery scent which is not over the top flowery.
• Not strong but very-very long lasting perfume.
• Versatile wearability.
• Lovely packaging.
• Signature/Designer fragrance.
Cons of Coach Poppy Flower Eau de Parfum:
• Actually I wanted to say nothing, but its limited availability in India is a problem. Because of which we end up paying more then what it costs in the USA.
Final Verdict on Coach Poppy Flower Eau de Parfum: If you love flowery but chic perfumes, want to own a designer perfume and you are ready to splurge buy this perfume with any delay.
IMBB Rating: it gets 5/5 from me as it scored amazingly on smells, versatility and lasting power 😀
Will I be repurchasing Coach Poppy Flower Eau de Perfume: I might if I will get to buy it from US. Would love to try other Coach perfumes too 🙁
