    I love Bleu, very unique scent on my skin. You must test outside of paper strips and bottle sniffing. This frag lasts forever on my skin too and has a very unique dry-down for an aquatic.

    Bleu de Chanel is one of my guilty pleasures. It was love at first sniff.

    It doesn't smell very manly to me as it's very fruity/citrusy, but I still love to wear it. I've gotten complements with it so it's a keeper.

    I can definitely smell the pink pepper on the dry down. It also projects really well and has good longevity.

    I like Bleu de Chanel -- it is fresh, inoffensive, and easy to wear.

    I don't care much for Bleu de chanel...it has too many of the sporty citrus-ginger components in it.

    Do a test: spray Bleu and Dior Homme Sport side by side on skin and the generic citrus-spice combo will glaringly stare back from Bleu at you.
    I absolutely love bleu de chanel and I absolutely loath Dior Homme Sport.

    Finally bought a bottle- its well made seamless and high quality fragrance.
    Not unique? Yes, it's not. Smells cheap? No, it's not.
    I think it's one of those scents which helps you forget about what are you wearing and concentrate on what are you doing

    Never tried it. I've got nothing against divisive scents, but when I read 'boring' I tune out. Conversely, if I read 'too edgy, smells like b.o.' yada yada, that tends to pique my interest.

    In addition to what others have said I'd suggest Allure Homme Sport Cologne Sport (damn the name confusion, someone should seriously get kicked in the nutz for this! jk never kick anyone in the nutz, mkay?) if you're interested in checking out a good citrus/sweet hay scent.

    I bought a bottle last week, absolutely love it and so do the people around me. Whether it is generic or not, who cares.

    I adore the shower gel. It's actually better than the fragrance itself for me!

    How do people with dry skin find this fragrance for longevity? Allure sport lasts a good 8 hours on my skin so wondering if this performs similarly.

    I don't get huge longevity on my skin. Maybe 4-6 hours. On certain clothing it lasts for days though!

    Same here. It lasted until the evening when I wore it last Friday (4 sprays -- 2 chests, 1 on the front of neck, 1 on the nape/back area).

    sorry but I think this bleu, just like the iphone5, nothing new or special, pricy, and people buy like crazy.

    I have this. You just screw on the refill bottle. It comes with 2 spare 20ml bottles.

    I started to say "Holy mother of all thread revivals!!!".....but apparently, this one has a bit of the Energizer bunny in it, and just keeps going, and going.....

    For some reason I can't stand the scent and I am an idiot who did a blind buy. As much as I hate it, this fragrance gets me the most compliments. Go figure.

    It's interesting to go back and read through this old thread!

    I wore BdC as my SOTD, and I got nothing but compliments! I think it's a great fragrance!
