Scent Name:  Poppy

Manufacturer:  Coach

Scent Description and Notes: A youthful and spirited fragrance, the initial spray of this fruity-floral scent delights with bright cucumber flower petals, juicy mandarin, and the sparkling freshness of bright baby freesia buds. In the heart notes, a lush bouquet comes forward, including petally jasmine, pink water lily, Southern gardenia, and the petals of red candied rose. A sweet depth wraps around these floral notes with a rich accord of crème brûlée. In the base, sensual and woody undertones create a lasting impression with notes of cedarwood, bleached sandalwood, lush vanilla, and whipped marshmallow. 

Cucumber Flower Petals, Mandarin, Baby Freesia Buds, Jasmine, Pink Water Lily, Southern Gardenia, Rose Petals, Crème Brûlée Accord, Cedarwood, Bleached Sandalwood, Vanilla, Whipped Marshmallow. 
Flirty. Fashionable. Fun.

Perfume Oil Color:  A slightly pink tint.

Bottle Design and Artwork:  I’m including pictures both of the standard bottle and the roller ball set, which is what I have. The set itself has this and Poppy Blossom on it, the blossom end decorated with flowers shapes in a coral, while the Poppy end features the Coach writing in pink.  Both are connected by a light gold connector that has the names of each scent printed at either end in small orange font.

  • ITB:   My first impression of  this is that Poppy is sweet, lively, and fresh.  When I concentrate, I can discern the water lily, sweet pink rose petals, bright and innocent gardenia followed by cucumber flowers and freesia.  I’m not picking up on vanilla or any of the woods, but it’s a lovely, sweet floral even without it.
  • Wet:  It’s a might more acetone-y than I hand anticipated, but it’s not bad with the freesia, lily, sandalwood, water lily, mandarin and fresh cucumber.
  • Dry: The softer, creamier notes come out as it dries down, morphing the scent into a beautiful combination of soft floral (the gardenia is bright while the rose is a soft petal pink note), creamy vanilla and marshmallow, indolent sandalwood, with the clean, almost watery note of cucumber flower petals and water lily.  I know that a couple of my students wear this and I don’t feel out of place as someone in my 30s wearing it as well.  I think it would work well for a wide band of ages.
Other Impressions: “Verbena and bubble gum.” -Tony
