    I didn't know they were continuing this line. Excited to try this one when available. Biarritz is my favorite and am wanting to get Riviera also.

    The notes listed look very tempting, if it becomes available in retails I'll consider sampling it.

    I thought Paris-Deauville was ok, and maybe one Jules might like, but she was against it when she tried it in a shop.

    I thought the others were surprisingly plain for Chanels, and don't have high hopes for this new one.

    Hmm, the notes sound tempting. Good to see it's something else rather than another citrus fragrance.

    According the notes this could become the most masculine in the line.
    The previous four smell very feminine to me.

    Agreed - the colour of the juice as well seems to lean more traditionally masculine. Looking forward to trying this.

    I like Chanel’s Paris fragrances. Deauville is my favorite. Looking forward to giving this new one a sniff.

    I like how Chanel is continuing with this. Light effervescent fragrances are my guilty pleasure. I know there is a lot of talk in the community for projection and longevity and how people care so much about those things....I just find the Chanel Paris fragrances sublime and speaks to my sensibilities.

    This type of fragrance, non-heavy hitter, definitely has its place and can be quite wonderful to wear.

    I'm interested. This line has intrigued me but none have been FBW yet. Deauville is close, but I already have the Eau de Cologne from les Exclusifs.

    Biarritz is great but it's performance is faint to put it lightly. thankfully Chanel do a lotion which easily outperforms the EDT and smells just as lovely!

    These bottles look so cheap! They don’t even look minimalist. They look really cheap. Awful design.
    I don’t understand.It is so vast that surpasses all understanding.Understanding is always limited.But not understanding can have no boundaries.I feel like I'm much more complete when I don't understand.Not understanding,like I say,is a gift.Not understanding,but not as a simple-minded.The good thing is to be intelligent and not understand.It's a strange blessing, like having craziness without being crazy.It is a meek disinterest,it is a stupid sweetness.

    I like them a lot! Maybe they look better in person, they have a curved back and resemble a flask which is cool.

    I can’t argue with that. Those Casamoratti bottles look like cheap plastic toys in pictures. At person they are very beautiful. I was like “WTF??!!!”. when I saw them. Even the yellow looks very nice.

    I got to smell the 4 existing ones yesterday. Biarritz & Deauville were my favorite. Unfortunately they both have the cheap smelling white laundry musk I despise (the one that’s also in the Les Exclusifs de Chanel Eau de Cologne & Dior’s cologne Royale). If it weren’t for that particular musk I would’ve bought both of them on the spot. Really nice, natural smelling fragrances other than that.
    Hoping this Paris Edimbourg doesn’t use that musk.

    As for the bottles, I liked them just fine. The lids do feel pretty cheap though (but it’s a non-issue to me).
