bleu de chanel eau de parfum

 

Today’s topic: fragrance for men! I’m always a sucker for a good smelling man, it really does leave an impression on me. I’m still figuring out what kind of notes I like but I think it comes down to woody scents with a hint of spiciness. One of my favourite male fragrances is Chanel Bleu EDT. Whenever I smell that on a man I’m already a fan. Good news for all the Chanel Bleu fans because there is a Eau de Parfum version now and it’s good!

You will see that the EDP and the EDT has a lot of similar notes. They are however different and I’d say that the EDP is a a more grounded version of the scent. The EDT has a more light-hearted spirit and feels fresher while the EDP is more grown-up, serious and has more depth.

Let’s look at the notes. We see labdanum, nutmeg, ginger, sandalwood, patchouli, vetiver, woody notes, mint, jasmine, lemon, grapefruit, incense, cedar, pink pepper and amber in this fragrance. I’m seeing quite some notes that I love. The first notes that I smell are the hint of mint, lemon and the amber. You also get a bit of the ginger and the grapefruit. It’s still a fresh scent but the woody notes and the incense makes the scent richer. The EDP changes to a more deeper scent after a while. The citrus notes tone a bit down and make room for the sandalwood and the patchouli with a hint of cedar and vetiver.

I’m very happy with this EDP version, it’s a great variation of the original Bleu de Chanel. You can smell that they are family but they are different enough to have both. I can’t say which one I prefer, I’d say that the EDT is perfect for the warmer months while the EDP is great for the colder days. Another great hit in the making if you ask me! Chanel Bleu EDP is available in 50/100 ml.
