Thread: Bleu de Chanel vs BN
I'm bored. Seems like Chanel Bleu is one of the most polarized scents on the board. It's in a lot of polls, but never just a straight up one like this (as far as I can find).
Let's put this battle to rest once and for all!! (*haha*)

Thumbs up for me.
Bleu is a mediocre, classless, Chanel unworthy, 16 in a dozen disappointment!
I wanted to like it, but I didn't...at all. Not saying it's a bad frag just definitely not for me.
I like Chanel Bleu. I don't love it, but I like it. It's more expensive than most designer aquatics, but truthfully, it IS classier than most aquatics. The longevity suffers and the drydown is relatively weak, so that weighs it down.
It depends if you like pink pepper in your aquatics or not as well.
It isnt a bad fragrance. It is just nothing special. And since there are so many special fragrances out there, I guess Ill give it a thumbs down, since neutral was not an option.

Up. I wouln't buy it though.
My co-worker wears it to work every day, and it's on the unpleasantly synthetic side for my nose.
Bleu isn't aquatic. It's a woody aromatic. What's the deal with people thinking that just because it uses the word blue (bleu, actually) that it's aquatic? I don't get it.
Anyway... thumbs down for me - but that's just my own opinion. I can't stand the stuff. I think it's the combination of pink pepper and ginger that totally yucks me out. For me, Bleu is a scrubber. But the truth of the matter is that Chanel has a hit on their hands.
If it didn't come from the House of Chanel, it would be one of those fragrances lost in mediocrity.
It quite remarkable really, when it first came out, it was absolutely hated hated within our community. People are coming round to it now
Far more a "yay", while not outstanding as other Chanel scents, still, consistent, albeit maybe unspectacular, quality and contemporary, trendy sense of style, without being too generic though.
Very nice scent but not worth for my money.
Yay. It's creamy, smooth, and unique. It's suitable for any occasion and has great projection and longevity.

Thumbs up. Smells excellent. So what if it's a Chanel that isn't unique? With that said, I'll buy a bottle if the price drops...a lot.
It's a very well made riff on a familiar theme for guys who generally do not go out of their way to wade thru batch number threads on perfume forums and it's in all the Duty Free Magazines on the right airlines and selling like hotcakes - a runaway success.
I give it a thumbs up. I waffle on this one quite a bit. There are times I wear it because I like it, there are also times I wear it mainly because I know I'll get complimented.
I don't have a signature fragrance. My signature changes a little bit every day, why shouldn't my fragrance?
ointments and perfume delight the heart....
I like its bottle, but the juice inside did not impress at all.

Thumbs up for me. It gets slammed because it errs on the side of caution, which means massive mainstream success, but not so much for fragrance veterans hoping for something different. I think it smells great nonetheless.
It's ok but I don't have strong feelings either way about it.
Thumbs up. I have no need to smell challenging as hell all the time. Bleu is a damn pleasant woody and vaguely sweet fragrance that is extremely polite even though it lasts for a very long time. It's safe - and for some, safe means boring, and boring is more or less like killing yourself, apparently.
For me - I really like it. If I want other people to really like what I'm wearing without being complicated or repulsive, I go for Bleu. I really like it myself as well. Uncomplicated, smooth, refined and good.
Poor quality, over priced and under developed. A scent for people with no opinion or nouse. I find it a very cynical release.
Wow, before I went to bed, the vote was tied: 7 - 7. Few hours later THUMBS UP option is dominating.
Bleu smells pleasant but it bores me to tears!
