I am slowly venturing into the perfumes category. There are so many good perfumes around there is no reason I should stick to my same ol’ perfumes. 🙂 I have been using Chanel EDP and Miss Dior EDP for a while now. It’s high time I reviewed them. 🙂
Chanel Chance EDP Claims : Allow yourself to be swept up in the whirlwind of CHANCE. Similar to the Eau de Toilette, the Eau de Parfum is an Unexpected Floral, created by Jacques Polge like a marvelous constellation.
An unpredictable balance that continually surprises. A constellation of scents, warmed up by Absolute of Vanilla, where Absolute of Exotic Jasmine and Iris are more pronounced. A mysterious alchemy accentuated by the intensity of the White Musk note.
Not quite the same, yet not completely different either… With the Eau de Parfum, CHANCE becomes rounder, more generous and more enveloping…like new love. As if to echo its warmer character, the Eau de Parfum fragrance has a beautiful amber-colored shade, while its bottle is adorned with a few touches of gold: gold replaces silver for the letters of the word CHANCE and on the neck of the bottle, and a delicate line of gold underlines the edges of the folding carton. The cap is made in silvery metal.
Notes: citrus accord, hyacinth, iris, jasmine, pink pepper, patchouli, vetiver, amber, white musk, vanilla.
Price : Rs 5,500 approx for 50 ml
Experience : I soo wanted to like this perfume considering I how much I adore Chanel Eau Fraiche. I don’t enjoy using it. It has sort of woody musky fragrance (which I like) but it is too strong and heavy for my liking. The most incredible thing about this perfume is the staying power. And the fact that it is strong , I have started using it for the gym. It is more like a winter perfume and strictly and evening perfume. I like the smell but it’s too strong and I end up not wearing it most of the time. May be in winters when you wear coats and leather jackets, it might work. Atm, it mostly just sits pretty on my vanity.
The packaging is the classy Chanel. Smooth and non fussy.
Miss Dior EDP Claims : An Eau de Parfum Miss Dior fragrance created for an “elegant and spirited young woman in love”.
Romantic by nature, Miss Dior inspires an intense and playful love, for which she is also searching. She personifies the spontaneous joie de vivre of today’s young women, representing a particular type of freedom and seduction. The fragrance is characterised by an instant and captivating charm.
Miss Dior is a chypre that develops step by step. It glides from the sharp charm of a fresh, fruity, citrus prelude into blossoming floral notes, then on to the noble elegance of patchouli, before finally concluding with musk, the last trace of memory
With veritable riches concealed in her heart, Miss Dior develops in the most intense and astonishing way.
Italian Mandarin Essence, Egyptian Jasmine Absolute, Indonesian Patchouli Essence.
Price : Rs 4500 approx
My Experience : This is my new found love as far as perfumes go. First take a look at how cute the bottle looks. Bows make everything look pretty instantly. 😀 This perfume makes you feel sexy. No kidding. 😛 It has that sweet-feminine fragrance that is also slightly fruity. I mean I am not even a fan of fruity fragrances but this has those little fruity notes that are not overpowering. They are somewhere there in the background. It stays on for 3-4 hours.. not as long lasting as the Chanel EDP. But perfume wise, this is definitely my favourite perfume. I have filled it up in my atomizer because I just don’t want to use anything else but this. 😀
Overall, I still feel that perfumes are very very personal. Do give these a whiff before you purchase any. 🙂
Which is your favourite perfume? 🙂
