“Having tried the perfume this week, I can safely say it’s a heavenly scent for those looking for something playful but not overly sweet or sickly.

I’ve been reaching for its stylish bottle day in day out and instantly feel uplifted when I first get a whiff of the first strawberry note.”

The new Coach Love has made it into BEAUTYcrew’s Top 3 Summer Perfumes of 2024 ❤️

“The scent we choose in summer has to emphatically express the unspoken, palpable magic of three months bathed in sunshine. Summer fragrances can be nostalgic echoes of a distinctly Australian experience, but they can also transport us to distant shores abroad.”

“The brand recently launched Coach Love, a fragrance that captures the multifaceted nature of love.

This new scent, a creation of renowned perfumer Antoine Maisondieu, represents a perfect harmony of wild strawberry, red velvet rose, and cedarwood. It’s an olfactory celebration of both individual and shared experiences of love, reflecting the brand’s understanding of emotional connections.”
