Thread: Bleu de Chanel
"Fresh, clean, sexual..."
mehhh I don't need another fresh clean BLUE cologne.. I want something more unique. Please stop trying to please the masses!! Ralph Lauren and many others beat you to playing the Blue card years ago. Blahhh.
well, we dont need another "fresh" fragance., but do we need another " woody-spicy-floral" ?? the problem is not the category..in each olfative families we find great or fragances totally a disaster.. im trying to be positive to this chanel. I hope to try it soon.
Tried it at Nordstrom today. Wasn't bad, but it smelled like any other half a dozen fresh / citrus / aquatic fragrances on their shelves. I really liked the bottle, though.
That`s pity how one word (BLUE) made some of BNoters to hate the scent
There`re not so many colours after all
Vetiver The Great!!!
I tried this sucker YET AGAIN today.
- I'm still not falling for it, but...
- I really felt drawn to keep sniffing my hand
- The drydown is really rather nice
- I almost think that I'm anosmic to the main woody amber, which may be in certain other frags. I can detect that something is being sensed by my nose, but it doesn't register as anything. It's like a blank smell. VERY strange.
yeah, they think Blue = fresh = aqua= ...... you know...
Bleu is just bland. Pleasantly bland, for sure, but it doesn't stick out in the sea of generically fresh-fruity-spicy-woody fragrances that are littering the shelves of department stores everywhere.
Tried it today with an open mind. The opening was pleasant, lemon, grapefruit, however after that faded it smells like a muted Bvlgari Aqua
Looking for: Andy Tauer - L'air du Desert Morocain & Incense Extreme

Now don't get me wrong. I love allure sport. And I like fresh fruity woody colognes. But that is all Chanel has been doing lately. I just want something new from them.
I have tried serveral times and I still think that Chanel can do much better ....
The only easy day was yesterday
I have allure sport and after smelling Bleu, I wish that I had held off on my purchase. Bleu is generic but appealing.
I like it a lot. Was bored with it on the blotter, but on my skin it came to life. I disagree with all the comparisons to the Allure line. Bleu is very well done indeed.
Maybe Chanel can do better, and maybe this won't go down as one of their "classic greats", but I liked it enough to get a small bottle. I think it smells great with good persistence.
How is its projection and longevity compared to the Allure line's?
I think they should market Bleu de Chanel with a "bluish" Thomas Kinkade painting. I think they go quite well together.

There is really something nice about the way this scent wears. Don't dismiss it too quickly. It's a really versatile scent that you may not find immediately exciting, but others who smell it on you definitely notice and enjoy. I often wear some edgy stuff and was kind of surprised at the number of enthusiastic comments I get on the supposedly lame Bleu de Chanel.
It's a grower.
I loved it from the first sniff. It's sad though that it has sucha poor longevity.
