Coco de Mer is a luxurious and enticing adult lifestyle concept store originally established by Sam Roddick in 2001. Sam is the daughter of the Body Shop founder Anita. No expense was spared in the opening of this adult emporium that was hosted by legendary Dave Stewart famous as being a musician with the Eurythmics. Steering away from the ‘hardcore’ stores were designs decadently made with beautiful jewellery and intimate objects made from the finest materials that would transcend erotic glamor.
The Coco de Mer stores held workshops and evening classes in all things adult from BDSM icons such as Master Dominic from how to give good head to the best knots in rope bondage. At these workshops new tricks, techniques and skills could be easily learnt that would benefit client’s bedroom with added pleasures.
Obviously this decadence came at a price. That price is the end retail price that shoppers were to pay for these luxury items. However, the price point appeared to be no block for the rich and famous of London and exclusive brands like Stella Mcartney and Mimi Holiday were offered in dazzling designs.
In 2011, online mega adult retailer Lovehoney acquired the business with a view of maintaining the exclusivity of the brand and its artisan themed products launching new Coco de Mer lines such as Slaughterhouse Couture, Pamela Andersons The Icons Lingerie, Coco de Mer Pleasure Collection and Coco de Mer Bondage.
In 2016, Coco de Mer released their exclusive sex toy range. One of the great toys in this range is the Emmeline Pleasure Wand.
Pleasure is redefined with the Coco de Mer Pleasure Collection, a range of indulgent products carefully crafted to let you explore your erotic imagination.
Test and review of the Coco de Mer Emmeline Pleasure Wand
I was excited to receive the Emmeline Pleasure Wand from our good friends at Lovehoney. It came in a discreet package which is great for anyone that does not want anyone to know what they are receiving. Unwrapping it, I found that the outer display box is a beautiful cocoa color. It looks classy, robust and feels smooth to the touch. Immediately, I thought that it was something a bit above the ordinary as it was oozing with luxury.
On opening the box and sliding out the inner compartment, a Victorian portrait of an attractive lady is seen who I imagine is Emmeline. On opening the inner box there is an instruction manual that is in the form of a small “pocket book” that’s 72 pages long. It has a picture of Emmeline on the front and the company’s details on the rear. The instructions are comprehensive and come in multiple languages. There is also a USB recharging cable and an adorable cocoa colored storage case that is either made with leather or faux leather. When looking from above it is oval shaped and there is a zipper on the side to open it.
Unzipping it the wand was easily accessible and once removed, I noticed that the inner compartment of this storage case is lined with a ‘silk’ like material that has a nice print. It is an aesthetically pleasing and functional case. The wand is also a luxurious cocoa color and it felt as soft as silk when I ran my fingers along the beautiful silicone. There is a gold metallic band separating the base from the tip and at the base there are three push button controls. The shaft is rigid and straight but is tapered slim in the middle of the top portion and then it has a bulbous tip.
This bulbous tip is for G-spot (or P-spot) stimulation and being non-flexible would be suited as much, if not more for men than women. Although it does work amazingly as a G-spot vibrator to stimulate a woman. The total length of the wand is 18.4 cm -7.25 inches with an insertable length of 13.4 cm – 5.25 inches. The circumference at its widest point is 12.1 cm – 4.75 inches so it is not the widest or longest wand I have seen but it is certainly sufficient.
Charging the Emmeline was a little different to normal. There is no external charging port – to charge one has to unscrew the base from the top. When the two parts are separated, you will find a charging port on the base. I plugged it into my laptop but any USB port will do the trick. When charging a LED light underneath the three controls flashes and when fully charged it stops. The first charge took about 1.5 hours to complete and I removed the cable and screwed the top half and bottom half together.
The Emmeline when properly screwed together is 100% submersible making it fully waterproof.
The controls of the wand are operated as follows –
The top “+” button
Use this button to increase the vibration speed.
The middle “-” button
Use this button to decrease the vibration speed.
The lowest button
This button is the on and off switch. To turn it on or off keep this button depressed for about 3 seconds. To change the vibration mode press this button quickly.
When I turned it on, I found that the motor was not whisper quiet but it is certainly less noisy than many other popular brands. The vibrations were nice but there was no toe curling powerful ones rather they were deep and rumbly just the way I like them.
I lubricated both the adult toy and myself up, I turned it on and began teasing myself by rubbing my clit and labia. The silky smooth material together with the lube enticed me. It was not long before I wanted to feel the shaft inside me. As I inserted it those deep rumbly vibrations I spoke about ignited the passion within me. It was not long before my self-lubrication began to work overtime, I didn’t need any lube. Personally, this wand was just a tad on the small size for me but it was certainly more than enough to satisfy.
Adjusting the tip I settled the bulb against my G-spot and as my vagina spasmed and clenched the shaft of the wand my G-spot began to build an orgasm. I would honestly say that from start to finish it took about 7 minutes for me to experience one of my favorite experiences which was a blended orgasm.
When I finished since the toy is 100% waterproof it was easy to clean by putting it under running luke warm water. I patted it dry with a towel, left it to air dry for about 30 minutes and then packed it away in its discreet storage case ready for the next time (that will not be too long in cumming).
This wand is luxurious, delicate and decadently made with designer quality and label. It will make the perfect gift for someone special that you can also enjoy. It would be a great idea if we could get a man’s review of this pleasure object as I think it may even be better suited for prostate stimulation and may easily allow men to have a P-spot orgasm.
Manufacturer’s description of the Coco de Mer Emmeline Pleasure Wand

“Enchantress, liberate your desires and rejoice in pleasure’s sweet embrace
Liberate your lusts with Emmeline, a sleekly designed internal vibrator for incredible release.

Versatile in application, Emmeline’s wider tip also makes it an excellent choice as a clitoral stimulator, with deep sensation that ensures satisfaction no matter how it’s used.
The enduring battery life guarantees a long session of satisfaction, letting you start playing in the boudoir as you run your bath – and the waterproofing of the toy ensures that once it’s finished, you’ve got a long evening of aquatic enjoyment ahead.

Reviews of the Coco de Mer Emmeline Pleasure Wand from Lovehoney
Here are some customer reviews of the Emmeline courtesy of the Lovehoney website.
A firm favourite
Reviewed: 3 September 2017 by Lovehoney – Sammy P, a Gay Engaged Female
This was my first ever Coco de Mer toy and from reading previous reviews I was excited to try the Emmeline.
We didn’t use the Emmeline internally, although you can it’s a bit too girthy for my liking. My partner and I used this like any other wand.
We a have few wands now, both rechargeable and mains powered. We think the Emmeline is the most powerful of all our rechargeable wands. She’s also the lightest so you don’t get an uncomfortable wrist after a period of time.
She has an impressive range of vibration intensities and patterns. The vibrations are quite rumbly and surprisingly powerful for something of this size. You can start off slow and work your way up to an orgasm, or turn her up and you’ll hit orgasmville quickly!
We have 100% enjoyed using the Emmeline, she hits all the right spots and has become a firm favourite of ours.
She costs a pretty penny but I believe she’s worth every one of them.
Out of this world pleasure
Reviewed: 11 May 2018 by Lovehoney – Fromage, a Straight Married Female
This elegant pleasure wand is everything and more that I could have hoped for.
From the sumptuous packaging to the wonderful quality of the silky silicone – this is a beautiful toy. Even the discreet leather case with the Coco de Mer detail on the zip feels luxurious.
There are so many different speeds and patterns, and personally speaking I found them powerful enough for a good rumbly deep tissue massage. There are plenty of settings to explore and for all preferences.
For its size (great for storage and travel) this wand delivered enough power to satisfy. I preferred using this for external stimulation and found the whole experience incredibly sensual. We’ve also used it with the heavenly Coco de Mer Enraptured Figment Massage Candle as a special treat.
This gorgeous wand is incredibly versatile and ideal for solo or couple’s play. If you’re new to sex toys it’s also a great introduction to the world of erotic pleasure.
Alohomora your orgasms
Reviewed: 23 February 2018 by K&c30’s, a Straight Married Male
Wands aren’t just for those in the wizarding world. Alohomora (unlock) your orgasms with this absolute gem.
The packaging as you can probably tell from the images is absolutely divine. The high-quality leather storage bag is fantastic. Of course you would expect something special for the price of the wand and it certainly delivers.
So once fully charged I couldn’t resist but turn it on and cycle through the various speeds and patterns. I was really concerned by how it struggled to get going when I was turning it on but it would get there after 20 seconds or so and took to the forums to see if this was a common issue. It wasn’t. I gave it a bit of time as it sounded like the motor. After running the motor and the wand through its various speeds and turning it on and off for 15 minutes it sorted the problem out. The power is lovely and powerful but if you think this will match up to a mains powered wand in that department you would be disappointed.
Using for clit stimulation it works really well, but where it really does its business is using it internally. The stiff body and silky soft silicone are simply orgasmic. Putting pressure on my G-spot and turning those vibrations up had me clenching the bed covers.
Its only downside for me comes with the patterns, I love a pulsing pattern which this has but it is in conjunction with a constant buzz and you just don’t get the same effect. It’s the only negative I can honestly give.
