    Default Bleu de Chanel Eau de Parfum - 2014

    Bleu de Chanel is a sophisticated and contemporary fragrance from Chanel that hit the market in 2010. Chanel introduces its enhanced version, Bleu de Chanel Eau de Parfum, in summer of 2014. The fragrance is dedicated to freedom—endless, deep and boundless.

    The woody-aromatic composition created by Jacques Polge follows the original path but goes down into a sensual and oriental amber territory. Wood maintains the freshness of the original in this variant, enriched with depth and velvet amber woods.

    The fragrance is available as 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum.. The fragrance features labdanum, nutmeg, ginger, sandalwood, patchouli, vetiver, woody notes, mint, jasmine, lemon, grapefruit, incense, cedar, pink pepper and amber.

    MAIN ACCORDS
    woody
    balsamic
    fresh spicy
    amber
    citrus

    Hopefully this is better than the original and won't smell as synthetic. I'll sample this for sure.

    ...did not like the generic 'fourteen in a dozen' smell of the original and I can't imagine this one is totally different, so I will pass this time...!

    But but but...this one is more "sensual" and "enriched with depth and velvet amber and woods"!

    Yawn. What's next, Bleu au Fraiche? Bleu Sport?

    Bah humbug.

    Thanks for sharing. BDC is indeed one of the fragrances whose notes might benefit from the EDP concentrations.

    You all act surprised, we all know this is bound to happen :-P

    Anyway, love BdC, so I'll definitely sample this when it comes out. Thanks for the heads-up!

    Expecting a better scent.

    I'm not expecting anything good from this.

    For example: Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme ought to be just stronger version of the standard AHS. It's totally different, to me it's a mix of AHS with Le Male.

    Notes look unchanged, but when I read that "velvety ambery accord" is amplified, it makes me want to throw up. At least there's no tonka in this one...

    Yawn, I don't really have any interest on this release, despite really enjoying the EdT. I just don't see a purpose for this type of concentration of a scent that I prefer using in Spring & Fall, in the first place.

    As others have mentioned, oriental amber?!?! I would have much more prefered that they ramp up the incense/vetiver in the formula, as their are so few of these types of scents in the designer market. I also hope this isn't the last offering from papa Polge for Chanel.

    I'm all over this one! I can't wait! I hope the EDP concentration brings out the vetiver and incense.

    I wonder what'll be the major difference and IF there'll be any between EDT and EDP.

    Agreed. I'm just hoping it's not like the whole YSL L'Homme EdP release which was pretty bad IMO.

    I guess it is Polge's sr last fragrance...

    YSL L'Homme Le Parfum Intense is quite good, especially compared to to La Nuit de L'Homme Le Parfum.

    Not much info out there about this. I couldn't find anything other than Fragrantica. Anyone else have/find any details about release dates?

    Chanel seem really half-arsed with their masculines these days. Still, I'll see what others think before passing judgement on the fragrance.

    I was just thinking this as well, you know his last creation before retiring couldn't be Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme!

    Hmm, I actually enjoy the original release. Anything that lasts longer in certain areas (middle notes, for instance) would be welcomed. I'll have to seek this one out whenever it comes out.
