7 Best Perfumes Similar to Coco Mademoiselle

Any lady – or mademoiselle in French – needs a signature scent.

For countless women around the world, Coco Mademoiselle was that first signature scent that helped them discover their style.

And why not? The citrus opening, feminine and floral heart, and musky finish are a classic combination that never goes out of style.

Thanks to its timelessness, it wasn’t hard to come up with a list of perfumes similar to Coco Mademoiselle. Whether it’s your first perfume or fiftieth, I hope you’ll find a way to include this classic in your collection!

7 Best Perfumes Similar to Coco Mademoiselle

1. Miss Dior for Women by Dior Eau de Parfum Spray

  • Notes: Mandarin, rose, patchouli, musk
  • Similar in terms of: Floral fragrance with citrus opening

Dior and Chanel are both omnipresent names in the perfume world. So, I guess it makes sense that if anyone would have a cologne like Coco Mademoiselle, it would be Dior.

This scent starts off with Italian mandarin, followed by rose and Egyptian jasmine in the middle. The base notes include patchouli and musk.

The note composition reveals the secret that these renowned brands have figured out about perfumes:

Less is more.

That’s why, even with such simply note combinations, this Coco Mademoiselle clone hits all the right accords of warm spicy, musky, and earthy elements.

Plus, this perfume lasts forever on me. I could just spray and forget about it the rest of the day or night, only to catch whiffs of the musk or rose even 12 hours later!

2. ARMAF Club De Nuit For Women Eau De Parfume Spray

  • Notes: Orange, peach, rose, jasmine, musk, vanilla
  • Similar in terms of: Floral fragrance with vanilla and musk

Our next Coco Mademoiselle dupe is perhaps not a brand very well known, but one that stands out to me nonetheless.

The top notes in this fragrance are fruit-heavy, with orange, grapefruit, peach, and bergamot. The heart notes are floral, with rose, geranium, litchi, and jasmine. Finally, the base notes include patchouli, musk, vanilla, and vetiver.

The reason this perfume stands out to me is mainly the combination of fresh and open notes with the more woody notes of musk and patchouli. This adds a fresh spicy element instead of just warmth, which is hard to get right.

Plus, the vanilla note gives the scent a creamy finish that smells like Coco Mademoiselle, which is a huge plus point.

Strangely, although the name is Club De Nuit, which means “club of the night” in French, I prefer wearing this scent during the daytime due to its freshness.

An added perk of this fragrance?

If your man or any male friend especially enjoys this perfume and wants for himself a cologne that smells like Coco Mademoiselle, you can simply direct him to the Club De Nuit for men!

3. Shiseido Zen by Shiseido for Women. Eau De Parfum Spray

  • Notes: Grapefruit, pineapple, freesia, lotus, amber, musk
  • Similar in terms of: Floral fragrance with amber and woody notes

Our next Coco Mademoiselle alternative has some unique notes in it to get to the same spicy, citrusy, and woody accords of the former.

The top notes start fruit and citrus-heavy, with grapefruit, pineapple, orange, bergamot, and rose. In the middle, we get some sweetness with freesia, red apple, hyacinth, lotus, gardenia, violet, lily-of-the-Valley, and orris. Finally, the base notes are amber, patchouli, musk, cedar, incense, and pine.

Remember how earlier I said less is more?

Clearly, Zen did not get the memo!

However, the elaborate list of notes actually ends up working to create a complex and colorful scent. Unique notes like Pineapple, Red Apple, Orris, and Lotus work together effectively.

Despite being a feminine and warm scent, the bottle is cube-shaped, modern, and edgy. I actually like this unique design choice and I feel like it pairs well with the contrasting but harmonizing note composition.

4. Sofia Vergara Eau De Parfum Spray for Women

  • Notes: Plum, orchid, violet, rose, sandalwood, vanilla
  • Similar in terms of: Floral fragrance with vanilla and woody notes

I appreciated the sitcom Modern Family and Sofia Vergara even before I came across this Coco Mademoiselle knockoff. Ever since I’ve used it, though, my love for them grew tenfold.

Jokes apart, the note composition makes it clear why this scent is worth buying:

The top notes are unique fruit notes like plum, blackberry, and currant buds. Floral notes dominate the middle with orchid, violet, and rose. The base notes are simple and consist of woody notes, sandalwood, and vanilla.

The violet and rose pair so wonderfully with the opening fruit notes, with compliments from the powdery and musky finishing notes.

If you’re looking for a sweeter and more aromatic cologne that smells like Coco Mademoiselle, this is the one for you.

The longevity of the scent is moderate – after all, no perfume can be perfect! A few extra sprays easily fixes that problem, though.

5. Yves Rocher Comme Une Evidence L’Eau de Parfum for Women

  • Notes: Violet leaf, rose, Oakmoss, musk, patchouli
  • Similar in terms of: Floral scent with similar finishing notes

Our next Coco Mademoiselle alternative comes from Yves Rocher, a brand that always comes out with reliable perfumes.

This perfume is no exception. The top notes include violet leaf and rhubarb, with floral middle notes of lily-of-the-valley and rose. Oakmoss, musk, and patchouli make up the base notes.

The patchouli and floral combination will make you feel like a wood nymph! It makes for a great everyday daytime scent for nature lovers, especially if you like lily as the dominant floral scent.

Some might say that this scent is too fresh or green to smell like Coco Mademoiselle. But I actually like that dimension. It’s perfect for the summer, when floral-heavy scents may feel overwhelming.

If you’re not a fan of it, you can easily layer it with more musky or woody perfumes.

Longevity is decent – probably not as long as some of the other Coco Mademoiselle dupes on this list, but not the worst either.

6. Burberry The Beat Eau De Parfum for Women

  • Notes: Pink pepper, bergamot, cardamom, tea, iris, cedar
  • Similar in terms of: Floral perfume with citrus opening

The Beat is a perfume like Coco Mademoiselle that has origins very unlike Mademoiselle:

This perfume was inspired by music, specifically by bands like Arctic Monkeys and The Fratellis. The notes blend together to create a wonderful symphony.

The top notes consist of pink pepper, mandarin orange, bergamot, and cardamom. The middle notes include tea, bellflower, and iris. Finally, the base notes are white musk, cedar, and vetiver.

With a strong fruity opening, floral heart, and woody finish, this scent definitely achieves its goal of being musical. Cardamom is also a really favorite note of mine and it smells amazing in the top notes here.

It’s definitely a scent that’s more on the simple side, and ideal for women who are hesitant with floral perfumes but want to try out a perfume similar to Coco Mademoiselle. In fact, it might even work for men or those seeking a more androgynous fragrance profile.

The bottle shape is also really unique and will stand out from the others on your dresser.

7. Montale Roses Elixir Eau de Parfum Spray

  • Notes: Strawberry, rose, musk, vanilla, jasmine
  • Similar in terms of: Fruity perfume with amber and vanilla notes

I’ve included Montale in other articles before, and I’m happy to see it make a reappearance in the list of Coco Mademoiselle knockoffs.

The notes in this perfume include floral scents such as rose, jasmine, African orange flower; fruity notes such as strawberry, strawberry leaf, citruses, and tangerine; and powdery notes such as musk, vanilla, and amber.

The fruity notes may dominate the scent initially, but they fade away to reveal a more fruity and amber-based afterscent which will make you think this is a Coco Mademoiselle clone!

It’s definitely on the girlier side, with the strawberry and rose, but it’s not old-fashioned. Plus, the strawberry does not smell artificial, which is hard to get right.

Just like the perfumes themselves, the bottle design is no-hassle and straightforward. Montale perfumes are known for being long-lasting, and this one does not disappoint in that regard either.
