As a fan of Coach purses, I couldn’t wait to try the perfume by Coach. Actually, I must have been living in a bubble, because I wasn’t even aware that such a delicacy existed until a few days ago. I immediately found my way to eBay.com to purchase a sample vial, and the rest is history.
CLASSIFICATION: Feminine, floral
AGE GROUP: Perfect for anyone
SIMILAR SCENT(s): Perhaps can be associated with a classier, way more appealing version of Estee Lauders Pleasures.
FORM: Eau de Parfum
I was not expecting this perfume to be even remotely pleasing to me. Not to stereotype any one that likes Coach products, but I usually envision the typical Coach fan to wear a more “classy” perfume than I do (I am a fan of fresh, fruity and light floral fragrances), and hey, that’s a compliment! From reviews I read, however, it seemed as though Coach created a perfume that could possibly appeal to everyone. I think they just may have succeeded.
Instead of being strong or too offensive at first application, Coach is a slightly sharp (although still pleasing) floral fragrance. The sharpness wears off, and a tart floral scent remains. The scent is not as light as my usual preference, but I definitely did not catch myself wrinkling my nose in disgust. It is a very cool, bright scent that can easily be dressed up or down.
Coach is neither too young or too old-fashioned, and if anything, the biggest fault that I can find is that the scent is not very unique… it’s just a tart floral with some aquatic notes. However, in trying to find a fragrance that would be suitable for women of all ages, uniqueness is not really an option.
I personally feel that Coach did a wonderful job creating this crowd pleasing fragrance.
As an Eau de Parfum, I had absolutely no problems whatsoever with the lasting power.

Although nothing truly unique, Coach for Women is a pleasing floral scent that is intended for women of all ages. It can be worn in every season, and can be dressed up or down accordingly. I personally will not be purchasing this fragrance to add to my collection, as it is not quite my style, but I was surprised and very happy with what I sampled. Good job, Coach.
