    We already heard this news. So what about the fragrance itself? I am still hoping for Coco Monsieur.

    Nothing. But Ruggles suggested Coco Monsieur as the name of the new men's fragrance in another thread. Or maybe it could be Allure Homme Edition Noir.

    I was talking to a Chanel rep a few weeks ago and not even they know what it's called. At a sales meeting they were told only that it was being referred to as Project Hector, for reasons known only to them.

    I just hope to goodness it's not another Allure flanker. They need to produce something of lasting quality which has its own identity.

    Eager for this one.
    Chanel is always a distinct notch higher than all designer scents.
    They came close with Allure Blanche and Platinum Egoiste.
    AFA the name: when I first read the article, it seemed as if "Supplement of Soul" or "an Added Dimension" would be the name, but it will likely be something shorter/easier.

    I think the new Chanel mens scent will be rather light and transparent. No Antaeus, no Egoiste. We must face current trends in perfumery.

    Egoiste was oriental
    Allure was semi oriental
    the new mens scent will not be neither oriental, nor semi oriental

    Nobody's worried that the first thing we hear about this fragrance is about the media campaign to promote it.

    It doesn't augur well for me. I sincerely hope I am proven wrong.

    Is it going to be a Sheldrake scent? I am really hoping the genious behind Les Palais Royal can exist without Serge Lutens.... Let's wait and see.

    God point there.... In fact does the fragrance exist already or is it going to be retro-fitted to Scorcese's directing ideas?

    But...it's Martin Scorsese for crying out loud, LOL!
    True, but on the other hand, media campaigns always have been important for Chanel, I still like the media campaigns from Egoiste and the Chanel no.5 campaigns. Chanel is one of the few that does them right imo. Yet, the fragrance is ofcourse what counts. We'll see.

    Maybe not oldschool oriental, but Chanel's never done oud before... if they're following trends that's a big one and it's neither fresh nor transparent.

    That's unlikely. Oud seems to be more of a niche trend than one in designer scents, especially mass marketed ones. It's a difficult note for people to accept, I doubt they would put it in a scent.

    Chances are this is going to be another safe, fresh, clean scent.

    Default Re: Finally, a new Chanel for Men !!

    YSL and Guerlain have used oud (or at least attempted to include it in scents like M7 and Habit Rouge edp). But I agree that it's more likely to be used in a new exclusif than a new mall scent. I just hope my inner cynic is wrong and it's not a fresh citrus or aquatic. A modern leather (updated Cuir de Russie or Antaeus) or a vetiver or patchouli along the lines of Sycomore or Coromandel but more mass-marketable would be welcome.

    Edit: Just adding that while we're predicting (and wishin' and hopin' and prayin'), I predict this thread will probably be four pages long before we even hear about a single note or anyone actually samples the stuff.

    Great info - Chanel is very tight lipped when they are ready to launch a new product. I read an article a long time back on Allure Homme and how the whole development of the fragrance was carried out in the seclusion of the cayman islands.

    Great news! Allure Homme Sport was a masterpiece from Chanel imo; it's been too long since they've come out with a big fragrance that will sell well... I hope this will be another masterpiece from Chanel in September... even if it's 6 years overdue.

    Considering that they just released Cristalle Eau Vert and Beige (both of which were sub-par, IMO), and there was an announcement for Chance Eau Tendre, I would not necessarily expect something great.

    I have had an e-mail talk with Chanel rep some days ago.
    She wrote that it will NOT be a flanker.
    The scent we are waiting for would be a new FLAGMAN FRAGRANCE for Chanel.
    A new theme for flankers, so to say.
    As for the other news - Chanel will reveal the name and some other info - in May 2010.

    I believe that Chanel do understand the golden rule of advertising (and suspense) - THEY ARE MASTERS OF TEASING.
    They give us information bit by bit, drop by drop - so we perfumistas keep wanting to know more, keep our attention for some more time, discussing and making predicts. Usual people will meet new Chanel masculine with "hmmm" and "it`s something I heard about somewhere, somehow"

    I like that style of advertising!

    Habit Rouge EdP has very limited distrobution and I would say the oud note in YSL's M7 isn't the same as in scents like Montale's. Even though M7 is a pretty big seller, I don't think Chanel would put oud in a new fragrance for mass release and if they did, it would be very subdued.

    Having worked for Chanel for many years in the 90s, I find this pre-hype as typical of Chanel. The same thing happens every time there's a new No. 5 ad campaign. I am excited by a new men's Chanel fragrance created by Chrisopher Sheldrake.
    Personally, I could care less about a Martin Scorsese promo spot, it will be forgotten about in 6 months, it's the fragrance that matters, isn't it?

    Read the other replies two above you

    Im very, very eager on this one and would love it to pick up the oud trend.
    Heck, why not do something out there, with a little incense as well? sure they can tone it down with vanilla, musk and amber or something to get the attention of the mainstream upper class?
    I wouldnt mind a good green, leather or fougere though, for that matter, just give us some originality!

    well hopefully it isnt allure homme sport blanche factor II eau fraiche.

    if it was pour garcons (CPM flanker AND a chypre) i'll be a happy man.

    What a disappointment. Do we really need another sad aquatic that smells as though it was run through committee?
    No, this is a miss. Bleu will be as forgettable as any number of current insipid jars of commercial drool more concerned with units sold than regard to the craft of perfumery. Save your money, and reach for Pour Monsieur.
