Sweet serenity for hopeful romantics: Coach Love Eau de Toilette

Do you remember your first love? More than the person, it's the feeling that nothing else could be more important than the longing - that rush of blood to the head whenever you see the one who holds your heart, the depth of sadness when you doubt he will love you back. Then, finally, the serenity that comes when both of you realize at the same time that you're meant to be with each other.

Love is sweet, not necessarily permanently so, but one moment could well be an eternity.


Turning that emotion into a scent may be impossible, but the Coach Love Eau de Toilette may be as close as it gets. It's joyful, refined, and romantic as two soulmates intertwined. It opens with notes of sparkling mandarin, dewberry, green violet, and freesia, while the heart is a sophisticated floral bouquet of magnolia, jasmine, and gardenia. The base is woodsy (sandalwood, patchouli) sweetened with fresh florals and caramel. It leaves a musky sillage for a few hours.


Perfumes like Coach Love are exactly my type, feminine and elegant, so I have no complaints! It's sweet, but I love that there's a hint of green in it - I love the smells of fresh leaves in my perfumes. I feel that this note is one of the things that set cheap and expensive scents apart.

The glass bottle is lovely, featuring two intertwined hearts, a ribbon, and rose gold topper. Definitely worth collecting, if you're into that! (I am!)


Overall, I highly recommend the Coach Love Eau de Toilette to hopeful romantics as it is a beautiful scent with a warm heart. It's a great choice for a date - he'll be asking about what you're wearing all night! ;)

Coach is available in Rustan's and leading department stores nationwide.
