The brand itself dates back to 1941; I thought it was before, maybe it’s one of those traditional brands that find a way to make a comeback, like Burberry or Hermes. It really wasn’t until 1979 that Coach went from being a small niche artisan bag brand to the multi-product brand it is today. Wild Rose is very fruity: the red currant is juicy and ripe with a little hint of lemon to balance. Bergamot sits alongside the fruit; it’s often used as a refresher, but this iteration is more about sweetness.
Amber appears as the top note, so you might be wondering where rose really comes in. The fun thing about this is that it goes in and out, sometimes I catch a lovely hint of fresh rose and other times it’s so heady and fruity I can hardly find it. This fragrance is for you if you like intense and striking flowers; It’s not for you if you don’t like any of those things. I’m in the balance on whether I like it or not: I feel like I might want it for a night out, but probably not for playing at home. Yeah, I guess that’s about it: Coach Wild Rose is the party rose and if your summer is a full calendar, it’s probably a great companion. John Lewis has the 30ml for £31.45 (which includes a 15% saving) HERE.
