Gabrielle fragrance notes

Reviews of Gabrielle

I don’t think anyone would say this is a bad fragrance, but i think it is uninteresting, just like most Chanel fragrances. It’s very similar to other from the house; a classic, non risky floral with a citrus opening.

This is a cold weather perfume. I received it as a gift from my partner in September, when the Ontario weather is still hot and humid. I hated it. It was too sweet and cloying. I put it on and immediately thought, "nope, this isn't for me".
Fast forward to mid-October, when the weather is cool and crisp. I decided to try it again (since I think his feeling were a bit hurt that I wasn't wearing the perfume he's picked out for me!). To my surprise, the cold weather transformed the cloying sweetness into a warm, rich, blanket of beautiful comfort. The citrus mixed with white flowers, sandalwood and musk is perfect for a fall or winter day. This is the perfect wool and cashmere sweater perfume.
My advice: If you tried this in the summer and hated it, give it a go when the weather turns cold. You might be pleasantly surprised.

Though composed of top-notch raw materiel, this floral/ woody/ musk fragrance is not substantially different from most of the Chanel line up. Excellent advertisement to go with it when it first came out, sleek - modern - soigne.
The juice unfortunately is a mild disappointment. It is not ground breaking, though it smells pretty. Opens with a bright zing from citrus and aldehydes, then segues into its heart of white florals, after which it rests, ever so gently on a base of sandalwood and musks.
But then again, so does the great No. 5!
If nothing else, I consider this new one a variant and iteration of the classic No. 5. Get that one instead!

I am not a fan of floral perfumes but my addiction led me to the Chanel counter. After spraying the card I thought I'd died and gone to Heaven.
The top notes were beautiful (whatever they are). The middle notes were nice (whatever they are). Then the dry down....... rather sickening sweet, musky nothing. I purchased a bottle but am now unhappy with this new addition to Chanel's family. If I could just layer something warmer and spicier or woodier for the finale I think I would love it. Today, after wearing for several hours I was going for the soap and water when I decided to try some Bois de Isles on top of the sweet nothing..... very nice but not my thing.

Chanel says Gabrielle is composed around four classic white flowers: tuberose, orange blossom, ylang ylang and jasmine. They call it, "the perfect white flower." Olivier Polge has called Gabrielle "abstract", an apparent allusion to Chanel's monumental abstract floral, no 5. Abstraction implies veering away from duplicating a given scent and instead reimagining it. Gabrielle is abstract in that it doesn't smell like any of these four flowers per se. In fact it doesn't smell appreciably botanical. Despite the press release talking points describing the perfume's flower as "imaginary" and "perfect", Gabrielle is less an ideal flower than the mean average of a set of 'floral' notes.

Gabrielle is linear for the most part but it has an identifiable drydown. The perfume grows less specific as time passes, though not inadvertently. The drydown seems intentionally indistinct, recreating the risk-averse, bleary musky/woody finish found in many mainstream perfumes geared toward the young female perfume buyer. To its credit, though Gabrielle is a fruity floral it's neither gourmand nor particularly sweet. A mildly acerbic twist runs through the perfume's duration, cropping any nascent sweetness.

Gabrielle hits its marks and doesn't flub its lines but it doesn't inspire. A noncommittal floral mix leading to a fairly anonymous drydown gives Gabrielle a shapelessness that undercuts Polge's efforts to create an ideal white flower. The composition seems specifically calibrated to create soft-focus haze and a dull shine. It's a ho-hum vision of femininity from the house that produced challenging and powerful feminine perfumes like 19, Cristalle and Coco. I don't doubt the expertise and technical proficiency involved in creating a perfume like Gabrielle. It performs precisely as intended and accomplishes its design goals but it reads as a collection of non-negatives. It's attractive in that it's not ugly. It's appealing in that it's not offensive. Again, this strategy seems deliberate. The most flankable perfumes tend to be those that don't commit too strongly to any olfactory characteristics and I imagine it won't be too long until Gabrielle Eau Fraiche, Gabrielle Eau Tendre and Gabrielle Edition Blanche hit the shelves.

Has Chanel actually put it's name on this fragrance? Why would anyone do this?
