Reviews of 1932

Oh, sorry. I took a nap there for a second. Must be the 1932: one sniff and . . . yawn. This is a Chanel Exclusif? This wan little thing with its mishmash of notes though which a bit of iris-ey leather struggles so mightily to assert itself before being beaten down by the shrill proclamations of a cadre of homogenized Mean Girl Florals before they, too, exit the scene and leave everything in the hands of dishwater grey laundry detergent musk?

Such a wasted opportunity.

Aldehydes and Iris blast initially, then fade to oblivion within 15 minutes, leaving a plastic oceanic synthetic vibe, that is totally undistinguished.

During the first few minutes the leathery iris had me very interested, but sadly, it did not develop, it just disappeared.

Amazing the number of ingredients in this, adding up to a rather large cancellation of itself.

Not up to Chanel's standard at all.

Aldehydes galore as in Chanel often, neroli, bergamot, then a drydown of jasmine, lilac and rose - a traditional floral mix. Later a sandal base note that never develops to something remarkable on my skin, unlike in other Chanel scents. A light musk with vanilla and a somewhat disappointing opoponax - this is no TF Envy! - make for a lukewarm drydown.

Performance is acceptable with adequate sillage and projection, and a longevity of around six hours. Supreme blending and ingredients could have made this excellent - but on me it never rises above a middle-of-the-range scent. 2.5/5

I bought this when I could no longer get Lancome's Magie Noir, because the description sounded as if it might be similar. Well, the quick in-your-face of synthetics is similar, and the base note is close... but all the florals in the middle smell like your grandmother's coat closet. When I start to run out of this, I'm going to have to search for something else.

Pretty, fresh, feminine.
The aldehydes give this a great potency which, for a while, makes all the elements bounce around like balls in a bingo cage.
Eventually, the scent settles (surprisingly) into a pretty good rendering of lilac.
Overall, the scent is too sweet, floral and pretty to interest me.
It seems a bit one-dimensional to me, not worthy of the Exclusive label in Chanel.
It is OK in and of itself, but not in the upper tier of scents from this label. Perhaps a bit synthetic in tone overall.

Fresh masculine floral that has the green and watery qualities of an oriental fragrance profile but marries it with smoky woods and gourmand spices. Sufficiently unique enough to translate as a modern fragrance but retains the classic vibe of yesteryear's barbershop. That's the intensity of this...light, watery with a little leather and rose to make you feel "spiffy"...just like a barbershop. This is a delightful departure from the "strong statement" fragrances of today. This is a perfect selection to have on hand beside your other "signature scents". Lasts 6+hours on skin and clothes.
