Very well done citrus scent by Chanel. This, to me, is the more grown up version of allure home sport. Where that one is very clean and sporty (hence the name), this one seems to be more smooth and balanced. Also, I personally think the magnetic cap is a nice feature. Overall, this gets a 9 out of 10 for me.
This cologne is absolutely amazing. I showed it to my boyfriend and since then he hasn't purchased a different kind ever again. As you can imagine, it is a little pricey, considering it is Chanel. Purchasing the large bottle is definitely worth it! It lasts for quite a long time. It doesn't require many squirts because the smell doesn't fade away, and is easily recognizable. It has a very unique, amazing smell. I would be able to sniff this stuff out if I needed too! I love it so much. My boyfriend always receives compliments on this fragrance when we're out. I seriously recommend this cologne to every single male out there. It literally make me want to bury my face in his chest and inhale for hours. It just smells phenomenal!! It doesn't stain clothes, it doesn't irritate my boyfriend's skin either. You can purchase it at almost any department store or makeup store like Sephora. It is a must have!
Chanel Bleu is simply wonderful.
Having been a user of Egoiste Platinum since the early 90s, I have found it difficult to use anything else. I may foray into the likes of Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren when I want a change, but I always have returned to my staple- Egoiste. There is nothing else like it. Which is a shame since, being a man of many moods, I think that one should have more than one scent. Variety is the spice of life, and to only use one cologne, even as good as Egoiste can get to be a little boring.
Although I feel that this fragrance house has done poorly with the Allure models, it has once again struck gold with this fragrance. This heavenly scent came along and finally gave me something that I can use in terms of my mood, without feeling that I've left my better cologne behind,
I most emphatically recommend Chanel Bleu to anyone with a discerning nose, especially if you are familiar with Egoiste Platinum- you will surely not be disappointed.
Makes you want to snuggle in and never leave-
Chanel has been a family staple perfume for generations. My Mother's favorite was Chanel No. 5, mine Chanel No. 22. I guess it shouldn't have surprised me when I fell in love with the new Chanel men's fragrance, **Bleu de Chanel**. As with any new fragrance, there are those who adore it and those who aren't as complimentary. I am one of the ones who adores it.
This new men's fragrance is the creation of Jacques Polge. He grew up in the south of France. As a young boy, his family would vacation in Cannes and Grasse. He speaks lovingly of the fields near Grasse where one could smell the jasmine. Nearby, were fields of roses, orange blossoms and violets. These childhood aromas are often incorporated in his fragrances.
**Bleu de Chanel **has notes of bergamot, lemon, grapefruit, deep blue sea accord, nutmeg, ginger, jasmine, cedar, vetiver, patchouli, labdanum, sandalwood, patchouli, mint, jasmine, cedar and pink pepper. It may seem like an odd combination of scents, but something about it works.
Bleu de Chanel's ad reads. "Be Unexpected". I think the wearer of this scent should expect the unexpected. **Bleu de Chanel **is intoxicating to me. It is woodsy and sensual all rolled into one scent; just the way a man should smell.
