Coach Signature EDT Review
You know those Coach handbags with the C’s all over them? I don’t like those. I think they’re tacky and unrefined. For a long time, seeing those bags was the only exposure I had to the brand, and it actually made me think that I just didn’t like Coach. Well, I was wrong. Turns out Coach makes a lot of lovely things, not just handbags covered with the letter C. They make some beautiful purses that are less heavily branded, and last forever. They make a really fantastic pair of riding boots, and some pretty snazzy glasses frames. And last, but not least, they make a surprisingly lovely perfume. They actually have a few fragrances I really like, but the one I want to talk about today is their Coach Signature EDT ($68 for 1.7 oz.).
My sister recently purchased this in a gift set. She was looking for clean, honeysuckle inspired fragrance that wasn’t overwhelming, and after sniffing quite a few, she decided on Coach Signature.
Coach says the notes are comprised of green mandarin, water lily, orange blossom, mimosa, tuberose, and jasmine. This EDT starts off with a citrusy top, which really only lasts a minute at most before opening into a clean, white, floral heart. Interestingly, honeysuckle isn’t even a named note in this fragrance, but that familiar scent of honeysuckle blossoms is definitely dominant. It has a subtle base of amber and wood, which tones down the floral notes so that instead of being loud or screechy, they’re soft, powdery, and delicate.
The lasting power is pretty decent, especially for an EDT. The fruity top, as I previously mentioned, lasts only for a few fleeting seconds, but the white floral heart lingers for hours.
This fragrance isn’t exotic or breaking any barriers, but it’s also not loud, making it inoffensive enough to wear at the office. It’s feels very spring-like to me, though my sister points out that there’s a warmth about it that still makes it appropriate for winter.
Where to Buy:
You can find Coach Signature EDT at any major department store. My sister bought hers at Macy’s, where it’s $68 for 1.7 oz. If you don’t want to pay retail, you don’t have to. FragranceNet is currently selling the 1.7 oz. bottle for $54, unboxed. Use coupon code FDC4P at checkout and get an additional 20% off, bringing the price down to around $44.
Skin & Tonics Rating:
Performance: 5/5 – long lasting, scent stays true
Quality: 3/5 – pretty packaging – love the bottle shape, but wish it wasn’t covered in Coach C’s.
Value: 3/5 – A little pricey, but still on par with other department store fragrance offerings
