    Default Bleu de Chanel by Chanel - New fragrance

    This is the new Chanel fragrance marketed towards men discussed earlier here. The name is taken from the Chanel fragrance of the 1930s, Le Bleu de Chanel. August 19th is the release date.

    Bleu de Chanel is a woody aromatic by Chanel’s house perfume Jacques Polge.

    Notes: pink peppercorn, citrus, peppermint, nutmeg, vetiver, grapefruit, cedar, labdanum, jasmine, incense, patchouli, ginger and sandalwood.

    more info here:

    It's hard to have any expectations based on the notes!

    Would BLEU become the new Black?

    If this is the same fragrance I was talking to a Chanel Rep earlier this year about, then yes, it will be an international release.

    Part of me is looking forward to this, and the other part is dreading that it is going to be another "focus group fragrance".

    I hear you on that. But I'm leaning hopeful. If it was Allure Homme Édition Bleu - yeah, focus group and gag me with a stack of testers. But they seem to have gotten the obvious point that there are about 3 Allure flankers too many. Maybe that kind of thinking extends to the fragrance as well.

    I want to believe that they let Polge's genius totally off the leash on this one. I WANT TO BELIEVE!

    Hopefully more than the name is taken from the 1930's fragrance, and that they took the success of Sycomore very seriously; applying the same creative process here.

    Yeah, I was a little concerned about that too. I guess the hope is that they can create a novel, compelling effect using familiar accords.

    But hey, this is Chanel and Sheldrake we are talking about: Why the hell not?

    I'll buy it, as long as it's under $75. There are certain houses where it's an automatic for me, like a new U2 CD...

    August 19 is the release date in France. I suspect it won't be released in the U.S. until later than that, as was the case with Cristalle Eau Vert. Does anyone know what the U.S. release date is?

    This looks really interesting to me. Count me in the cautiously optimistic camp. The notes look like an odd combination, but one I'd be interested in smelling. I don't get the "focus group" vibe from this one, but we'll see.

    It seems to be unconfirmed at this point, but Scented Salamander reports a worldwide launch in September. [link]

    Thank you for that link. Apparently, they believe the worldwide launch will be in August rather than September, based on the latest info. I hope it's true.

    My guess is this is going to be a very woody fragrance. Wood seems to be very popular these days in masculines and I am guessing Chanel is going to jump on the bandwagon.

    Guess again! Octavian just posted his thoughts on Bleu saying "It smells like the entire fresh-sport masculine section with no absolutely original twist - what today is called sport." Site Link

    How disappointing!

    Nutmeg has become the note du jour in masculines these days. The banal list of notes doesn't give one much hope, does it?
    I just read Octavian's review, he certainly rips Chanel a new one! IMO Chanel's mainstream fragrance releases have been rather dull since their glory days of Coco, Égoïste and Antaeus.
