Chanel Chance Eau Tendre Review
I rarely buy perfumes. Sure, the bottles look very pretty on my dresser, but I tend to stick to one fragrance for months, sometimes years, at a time and all the other lovely scents are left to gather dust on my perfume tray.
For years, I wore nothing but Burberry The Beat, before moving on Chloe. I’m only just starting to experiment with different scents, but old habits die hard and I still find myself reaching for the same bottle over and over again. My latest obsession is Chanel Chance Eau Tendre, the original Chance’s lighter, fresher sister.
The bottle is absolutely gorgeous. It’s simple, elegant and tasteful. I love everything about it, from the shape and silver detail around it, to the black and white writing. The frosted cap engraved with the Chanel logo and the pink liquid give the bottle a young, playful edge that really suits the fragrance itself.
The Perfect Scent for Spring & Summer
Chanel Chance Eau Tendre is very much a Spring-Summer scent, but without any of the overly sweet and supposedly sexy notes that usually repulse me in other summery perfumes. At first sniff, there are definite notes of citrus that quickly fade into a subtle, pleasant sweetness. I always get compliment on my perfume when I spritz it on in the morning. It’s a playful, fresh scent that doesn’t quite match the image that comes to mind when I think of the brand…Granny’s bottle of Chanel No. 5 that expired back in the early 70s, anyone?
Unfortunately, Chanel Chance Eau Tendre doesn’t last all day on my skin, most likely because it’s so light and airy in the first place, but it does last forever on fabric. It’s something you might want to consider, given that it really is quite expensive. It feels incredibly luxurious though, and a bottle of perfume is the only Chanel thing I’m ever likely to own, so I’m making the most of it!
I have a couple more perfumes on my wishlist, but for now I’m happy wear this on a daily basis. Have you tried Chance Eau Tendre? What fragrance will you be wearing this summer?
