    Default Today I bought Chanel Pour Monsieur Concentre

    And can not wait to wear it tomorrow after sampling it many times. I picked it up at the Chanel counter in The Bay and got great service from one of the better sa's I've dealt with which was nice. After I purchased it I asked if she had any samples and she came back to my delight with 2 handfuls 1 for me and 1 for my gf!

    She also told me it was the last bottle in stock. While there I also sampled Anateus and Coco Noir. As far as Anateus goes I have sampled it many times before but cant seem to get past some notes but kep coming back to it lol.

    If anyone has any experience with cpmc I'd love to hear about their longevity and projection experience. I remember this one being great on my skin and lasting forever. Anyway long time lurker first time poster!

    The only Chanel I like so far is Anteaus. It's one of the best and a real powerhouse. In all fairness I haven't tried CPMC yet.

    Its lavender note is very well blended and its semi-sweet vanilla dry down is great as well. On my skin, it lasts 6-8 hours with moderate projection.

    One of my favorite from my wardrobe. Enjoy it.

    Indeed, a great Chanel purchase, incidentally, also on my "to buy"-radar for quite a while.

    Has this been reformulated? I have a new bottle with almost zero sillage and stayingpower. The old was more powerful and more oriental in style.

    Another Chanel classic I need to add to my fragrance collection. It's a powerhouse, timeless classic. Right up my alley.

    I sampled this one today for the first time. It's a quality fragrance and it's easy to see why people like it. It's not for me though, the nutmeg note in the mid notes ruined the scent for me. The base is fantastic though and it's easy to see why some would love it. Longevity was average and projection died down after the first hour.

    There is no "edt version" change1. Chanel Pour Monsieur Concentre is an edt as well. You are thinking of Chanel Pour Monsieur...but it really is an entirely different fragrance ( so I would not refer them to as corresponding versions).

    Personally, I am trying to warm up to PMC. I kind of find it a bit on the powdery/chalky side, but it smells nice. A nice conservative oriental fragrance.
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Nicole Miller (vintage), Opium pour Homme, Oxford & Cambridge, Concentré D'Orange Verte...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of Jil Sander Feeling Man, Cacharel Nemo, Bijan for Men EDC, Lanvin for Men, Giorgio VIP, Il Lancetti and other old school frags ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    I like the smell, but it comes across kind of formal and old fashioned to me. I read that actor Jeremy Renner favors it.

    Ughh...I miss this one!

    It's the one bottle I sold that I really regret selling.

    I love the opening blast with the citrus, lavender, and nutmeg and think the drydown is fantastic. I remember CPMC projecting very well and lasting a long time.

    Great fragrance, Enjoy.

    And welcome to posting!
