    I'd blame the masses' tastes in fragrances for this... and a fresh sporty release in summer is clearly marketed at the masses. I'm still interested in trying it out but at this point, the score is probably Focus Group: 1 J Polge's Artistry: 0

    But I'm hoping it's still enjoyable...

    Very disappointing.

    But it's a great idea for Chanel to advertise fresh scent like the dark and woody one... Sure that millions of guys will buy this Bleu, and it will become the bestseller of the decade...

    After reading Octavian review I feel like it should be a best-seller, it will have a great offspring of flankers, and bring Chanel enough money to continue Les Exclusifs line!

    I am not crazy about the name just thinking for a marketing perspective. I did read some where on the internet that some one got to sample the fragrance and it was a 'light' citrus spice wood. Just reading that made me think what happened to the days of Antaeus and Egoiste?

    I hope Bleu will be as fascinating and mesmerizing as Chanel's latest feminine fragrances and Les Exclusifs!

    The bottle reminds of the Allure's bottle so much. But in a blue color and with a black cover.

    I'll hold off judgment of the scent til I actually try it. But I do NOT like that bottle, so generic, so boring. I don't mind simple, if it's done well, this on the other hand, is just.... meh.

    Most of Chanel's bottles are generic square shapped the only one which had a little flash was Chance with it being round with a chrome ring running arond the sides of the bottle.

    The 50 ml bottle will be €54 and the 100 ml will be €74.

    I just read that review. Real downer, although I think of Chanel's mens fragrances as being weak overall. As if the world needs another Sport fragrance ! I will still sample it, however.

    Sigh is right. However, I have some hope left. If it's anything like Tiffany for Men Sport - which I consider a very worthy scent - then perhaps there is some redeeming aspect.

    We'll see......

    It's still Chanel and regardless of other opinions they don't have one loser in the men's line IMHO. Not one. Considering the perfumer it's worth a blind buy online if it can't be tested/purchased in retail stores here in the states. A new launch from Chanel is long overdue (I don't count the variations of Allure).

    BTW the notes sound yummy. Sometimes I think people just want to bash something new unless they put some off beat note like note of "scent no one can pronounce" in it. Try it first and then tell us what you think!

    Is it just me or is nutmeg and/or ginger finding it's way into every recent release? Is there some new aromachemical Givaudan et al are pushing under perfumers noses?

    This "ginger" is a sure turn-off for me in every example i've tried so far.

    well,. many people hate the last Guerlain homme in reason for the " mainstream" "generic" etc, etc.. adjetives oriented to the popular sellers and crappy fragance,.. but i really like it (isnt in my next to purchase it),. and others too.

    so, of course im open to try this channel with an optimist vibe... so,. lets wait to smell it !

    Yeah, the designer market is so full of fragrances that smell nice, but not very interesting at all. I'm particularly against acqua scents because calone makes me wretch.

    Oh God, this time even the bottle is original. It`s very similar to Silver Shadow Private Bottle:

    Are you sure that it is original? To me it is a bottle of Allure Homme (the same shape, cap and bends) but in the other colours.

    It seems as though the fragrance companies have lost touch with the sales potential of classy bottles. The bean counters must be in charge.

    Chanel has always had minimalistic bottles. I appreciate their consistency, though I have to say that I don't find the Allure Homme type of bottle to be the height of Chanel chic.

    As for the fragrance, it doesn't sound very promising. I'm hoping for a surprise, but don't really expect to be wowed.

    There was a word NOT lacking. Even the bottle is not original, and I thought is it too much coincidence the same blue color of Silver Shadow Private. After all, with a lot of blues available, why choosing one very similar?
    Well, although I don`t like it, the truly unique blue scent that I tested was Le Bleue d'Issey
