Fragrance preference: floral, sensitive to some very strong scents
Today, I am here to review one of my favourite perfumes and it is Allure by Chanel. This range called Allure offers a variety of products for both men and women. So, let’s start with my review. Chanel Allure Eau de Parfum is a floriental fragrance. It has fruity notes of sparkling mandarin blended with floral notes of enchanting rose and seducing notes of vanilla.

Price: £74 for 50ml
Difficult to define, impossible to resist. Clean and sheer, warm and sexy, allure is a floral, fresh oriental fragrance that finds an expression unique to each woman. Because every woman has her own special allure.
Sparkling notes of mandarin combine with the softness of may rose and the sensuality of vanilla. The eau de parfum; closest in strength and character to the parfum form, features an intoxicating passion fruit note with a peony accord and a warmer oriental facet.
This peachy-pink coloured eau de parfum comes packaged in a streamlined rectangular shaped, transparent, glass bottle. This bottle has Allure inscribed in a rose-gold coloured font. This elegant looking bottle has a beautiful rose-gold coloured cap, encircled with a golden coloured ring. Further, this ring has the brand name, Chanel, inscribed in a golden coloured font. This bottle feels luxurious and sophisticated to hold and has a spray applicator attached, which enables effortless application on skin and clothes.
This elegant bottle comes packaged in a peachy-pink coloured cardboard box, which is also streamlined with a rose gold coloured border. This cardboard box has an additional peachy-pink coloured thick cardboard packaging inside to hold and support the bottle. The usage of the enchanting colour theme of peachy-pink along with rose gold and golden colours makes the packaging very luxurious, sophisticated and irresistible. The packaging can also be termed as travel-friendly.
My Experience with Chanel Allure Eau de Parfum Spray:
I have used quite a few perfumes from Chanel and most of them are already reviewed on IMBB. I had used some sample tubes of Chanel Allure Eau de Parfum Spray and I liked it so much that I had to buy a full size bottle. Yes, it is a bit pricey and hence I opted for the 50ml bottle. Chanel EDPs and EDTs have never failed to enchant me and this one has also joined the list of my favorites.
Chanel Allure Eau de Parfum Spray is made up of six facets: sparkling mandarin, may rose, sensual vanilla and intoxicating passion fruit notes mixed with peony accord and warmer oriental notes. From these six facets of Allure, three facets (sparkling fruity notes of mandarin, floral notes of rose and the oriental sensuality of vanilla) dominate the fragrance of Allure Eau de Parfum Spray. It opens with fruity notes of mandarin, has a heart of enchanting rose notes and a sensual vanilla and ends with fresh and warm oriental notes.
It’s an olfactory reinterpretation, in line with the original composition. This eau de parfum is for women who desire to wear a strong but natural and charismatic fragrance. This perfume is a perfect blend of fresh florals mixed with a fruity and oriental fragrance that is refined and elegant. It reveals its six facets in a way that is unique to each woman. This scent can be worn on skin and outfits. I personally like wearing this perfume on my wrist, near my neck and earlobes. The fragrance is timeless and intimate.
When sprayed on outfits, the room is filled with this enchanting fragrance. The lasting power is much longer, sometimes until next day morning when sprayed on the clothes. But when sprayed on the skin, the lasting power is mediocre and the fragrance is intimate. I use this perfume sparingly only for special occasions and evening outings or dinners. I always receive compliments when I wear this lovely perfume. It brightens up my mood and enlightens my spirit. In fact, it brings out the best in me. I am definitely repurchasing this perfume.
