On a lower scale, at certain stages there are some similarities even with D&G light blue or Azzaro Chrome Legend.
Dont get me wrong, i find Bleu a pleasant scent and clean. But it brings nothing new or extraordinary to the world of fragrances to be considered the best cologne in the world (the statement a few msgs above). As pleasant and clean i find it, i will never pay the pricetag asked for it; if price was around 40-45 euros, maybe i could be persuaded to buy it. Over this, i dont consider it price worthy. But thats only me.
I guess to each his own also applies here YMMV.......
I own both 150 ml Chanel Bleu EDT and 125 ml original Lagerfeld Classic (both the new and old version) and use both on a regular basis, maybe each once a month or so.
To say lagerfeld Classic has ANYTHING AT ALL REMOTELY to do scent wise with Chanel Bleu is like telling me a red Ferrari looks a little bit like a white Rolls Royce.
These two frags have nothing in common - I have been using Lagerfeld for years, both the old formulation and new reformulated version and I'm on my 2.nd bottle of Chanel Bleu 150 ml EDT.
If you told me a frag like Armanin Code was a little bit like Chanel Bleu, I would have nodded and thought - they share some dusty lemon vibes, but that's pretty much it. But Lagerfeld Classic and Chanel Bleu - to my nose - have nothing at all in common.
Pierre Cardin Revelation - almost the same. Have nothing in common with Chanel Bleu. I use Revelation in EDT from time to time and also in deo spray (for fitness) and it does have a little bit in common with Bleu, but honestly not more than for instance Polo Blue has........in fact Polo Blue to my nose is closer to Bleu than Pierre Cardin Revelation is, and Polo Blue is not that close at all
