    I sampled it yesterday and for lack of better words I found it loud and harsh. Sorta of like an aqautic on steroids. I surely would have never guessed this one as a Chanel. To me- it smelled like something I would expect to see at TJ Maxx really soon.

    Sad news indeed.
    I have just reviewed Bleu de Chanel on the Sorcery of Scent blog, and summize that it is very lack-lustre.
    And for those anticipating a new scent that is not an Allure Homme flanker, then you too will be as disappointed as I. Bleu de Chanel does share common accords found in Allure.

    i cant wait to try it after so many things talking about... but in opinions we can read that bleu is a mix of aquatic? herbal? woody-spicy ?? is totally a bag of olfative families ??

    I don`t know, even after the comparison with Edition Blanche I`m not interested with this Chanel. Edition Blanche is perfect for me and I wouldn`t want something similar. And even if I want something that goes on a similar direction of Edition Blanche I`d buy Lalique White. For a fresh take from Chanel I`d buy Cristalle Eau Verte, that had a delicious lemony herbal smell on my skin

    Once again, it looks like focus groups win. It will be a huge seller and that is what matters most.

    When I want fragrant stimulation I go to luckyscent.com instead of a Macy's counter. I see no change in the near future.

    I have had this on my arm now for 2 hours...I can't say it is horrible. It smells nice, and have no doubt it will do well. The bottle is very nice. It just doesn't wow me; I just don't think it is inspired or elegant at all.
    Chanel has dumbed this down to a demographic they never even had to go after in the first place. I smelled the Ralph Lauren Pony line at the same time and felt that this one could be the 5th Pony fragrance. That is not a slam...it is a statement about the generic, easy way out character of this offering.

    Allure Homme Edition Blanche is the only Chanel I own and that isn't changing anytime soon I guess.
    As always, your mileage may vary.

    ^Totally. I'm wearing Bleu for a second day today, two sprays this time. It smells good, but it's just not blowing me away. Édition Blanche and Eau Première are both more inspired and elegant. And I get you about the fifth pony. ALL of these seem to have potential, but they're just (a) weak and (b) commitment-phobic crowd pleasers. I pray they do the "Guerlain Homme" on this one and release an EDP and/or intense version. I'm almost positive I'd like it enough for a quick buy.

    On the plus side, Bleu has excellent persistence, and holds its overall scent very nicely (I put my two forearm sprays through something of a torture test). Also, my wife had an immediate positive reaction. ÉB is stronger up front, but loses steam faster than Bleu. She thought Bleu smelled great after the sillage was pretty well gone.

    And, I have to give Octavian some cred. I detected a rather pleasant note at about 45 minutes that I couldn't place at first.

    Hugo Boss.

    I am thinking that a full sample wear with 4 or 5 decent sprays will be needed for me to really decide if I'm "getting" it. It may grow on me.

    Still, I must say that if you really want to be unexpected, layer this with no.5 Eau Première.

    I tried it. It's not bad, but it's certainly not good either - just more mediocrity for the masses. But that is what sells. However, they won't be getting any money from me on this.

    As far as Chanel goes - I will stick with Antaeus and Egoiste/Egoiste Concentree, as well as the superior fragrances from their women's and Les Exclusifs lines.

    Yeah, for some reason, I can dig what petruccijc thinks about this even though I haven't sampled it. I don't want to be judgmental about this considering I haven't sampled it but, I'm not hopeful. Instead, i have my sights on saving up for sycomore.

    Well, personally, I would own Blue de Chanel before Sycomore. Blue de Chanel may smell generic and uninspired, but you will never be accused of smelly like a damp sour towel that has been used too many times between washings.

    This is how I feel about Bleu relative to the Sport. To me, the Sport is truly anemic - so much so that the Sport Cologne seems preferable with its fuller commitment to the citrus. And Bleu has, for all its mainstream character, better projection, longevity, and (IMO) scent, than the Sport. Édition Blanche only beats out Bleu on scent itself and opening volume, in my perfumista opinion, though I would wager that a spreadsheet and a focus group (particularly women buyers) would favor Bleu.

    If you're in the market for an Allure flanker or "modern" (cough) Chanel, don't write off Bleu. But if you must own a truly radical, unexpected, course-of-perfumery-changing masculine.... either buy EP or wait for whatever Bleu is going to pay for.

    I have tried it today, in fact I still can smell it in both of my hands and two test papers. This is nothing new under the sky, forgettable and without any personality what so ever, it can be mistaken with a gazillion other modern fragrances. The opening has a strong "food" note like a sweet spice kicking in the background. There was a lady smelling it next to me and she literally said "smells like vomit"... I wont go that far but it has something that I have smelled before (Citrus Paradisi ¿?¿? )
    Overall it smells modern and casual with some elegance but I wont be buying it.
