    Default Bleu de Chanel EDT or EDP

    Hello. I have some fragrances and i decided to put one more to my collection.
    But the question is which concentration should i buy. I have an opportunity to buy 150ml of Bleu de Chanel both EDT and EDP in the same price.
    I know im not gonna shine with any of them, but which one is less popular and may smell more unique for people around me.
    My Aventus is slowly running out and it's gonna be my next versatile fragrance ( next to Dior Homme ).
    Please share your thoughts and have a good day

    I was never moved to purchase either, but when I tested both, I found the EDT to be more pleasant and versatile.
    I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.

    The Eau de Parfum will most likely be the less popular between the two I would think. I enjoy the two equally, but I would probably go with the Eau de Toilette because it does seem to be the more versatile between the two. I find the Eau de Parfum to be great in cooler temperatures while the Eau de Toilette is great pretty much year-round. Just my opinion.

    Avoid both at any cost........!

    If you're buying from Chanel, I suggest Antaeus or Egoiste.

    If you want a more sub-due scent, go with the EDT. If you want something more dominant, go with the EDP. That's for you to decide honestly.

    EDP personally. Smoother and richer. The edt is too fleeting on my skin as well.

    Don't own either, but I do use the Bleu de Chanel Aftershave Balm. I prefer the citrusy top-end of the EdT over the darker (and a bit stifling) EdP. They're both good, just for me one is clearly better (yet I almost always opt for EdP+ versions).

    The EdT seemed too "chemical" to me whereas the EdP did not.

    Edp..... Ive had alot of unsolicited compliments on this one... Hear that edt doesn't last long at all

    Go with the EDP. The EDT is not as long lasting for me, and the EDP just smells smoother and richer.

    The EDP is, perhaps a bit surprisingly for its concentration and its performance, quite versatile and fresh as well- would still choose and recommend this one out of the two

    Add another one for edp. I had the same dilemma last week and chose the edp. Glad I did.

    EDT is richer, better longevity, and more versatile.

    My wife likes the dry, fresh character of the EDT. I prefer the stronger, richer, almost medicinal character of the EDP, which she does not like at all.
