I'm in Chanel 1932
again, and I can finally say without reservation that I'm completely smitten - it's wonderful. It's been interesting getting to know it, and I feel like my early impressions are quite far from what I'm perceiving now, which is mostly iris within the lush floral heart, rather than jasmine ...although there's plenty of jasmine, too. This iris note reminds me a bit of the iris in HdP 1889 Moulin Rouge
, but '32
is really not similar to MR
in any other way, and there's no makeup vibe going on ...nothing fun or cute either, and certainly not kitschy. And it's warmer, much more aldehydic and floral, and much less green than both 28 La Pausa
, so this is not just another Chanel iris. However, I tend to pick up on any iris in perfumes a lot
. (I get loads of iris from Oro
, for instance, as well as several other fragrances that aren't generally considered iris-y by most, so that's just a note for people that would want it just for the iris.) Most accounts I've seen call this a powdery jasmine
perfume, but my experience has been different. Just fyi ...as always, your mileage may vary. At any rate, I do highly recommend this for the Chanel lover, as well as any fans of luxurious aldehydic florals. As you'd expect, and as I expected, 1932
is elegant and beautiful, well-mannered, ladylike without being prim, and good for any age, any season and every occasion, day or night ...impeccably Chanel. ♥
Y'all have a great day!
Oh boy, good luck with your FedEx issue RHM
- that really stinks! I sure hope it's resolved asap.
Hey - good for you, Lucas
- congratulations! (I don't know how I missed that - I had to double check to find out what the big deal was, lol!) Well done, indeed - cheers!
