Bleu de Chanel EDP Review - Why You Should Buy It
Once my love for perfumes began, I just wanted to have this popular designer fragrance in my hands. Despite lacking any particular reason, I just bought it. Honestly speaking, I had never even smelled it on someone. That’s the craze that this fragrance has.
The popularity of Bleu De Chanel EDP is the number one reason that makes people buy it blindly. But is it that good? How good are the projection and sillage? Is it a compliment getter? And does it justify the price tag?
The Inspiration and Theme of Bleu De Chanel EDP
To know the theme you need to go back to the history of the creation of the original Bleu De Chanel theme. It is all about freedom and leaving the past behind. To be YOU with no strings of past attached.
Bleu De Chanel EDT and EDP are created by master perfumer Jacques Polge. A master perfume artist who has created more than 70 perfumes. Some of Chanel’s best fragrances are a work of his hands. Allure and Chanel No 5 are some of the best-selling perfumes credited to him.
The theme of freedom has been taken to a notch up with the EDP version of Bleu De Chanel.

PresentationNo other perfume can beat the opening of Bleu De Chanel EDP.
It straight away takes your breath away. You just fall in love with the first sniff.
And during the review of Bleu De Chanel EDP, I asked many perfume stores about what perfume people buy just after testing, and their answer was simple. It is Bleu De Chanel EDP.
Bleu De Chanel EDP was supposed to be better than the EDT version at projection and Sillage. But surprisingly, that’s not the case here. EDP though is better at longevity than EDT, but not better than any other in the fresh perfume category.
It is a better perfume blending wise and it has a very nice smell. I wear this perfume for compliments and likability. I want people to feel my scent. And that is what makes me confident.
Bleu De Chanel scent has moderate to strong projection which is around 2 feet in the opening 45 minutes or so. Then it settles down close to your body and skin. Anyone who comes to hug you will feel it and will be blown away by the quality and mystery smell.
When To Wear Bleu de Chanel
As far as occasions are concerned there are no boundaries either, but I would suggest that Bleu De Chanel should be worn in offices and official gatherings and functions.
Though I have seen people wearing it in gyms, my recommendation as far as the dress code is concerned is to wear it on formal and Casuals/ Semi-Casuals. I love wearing it in dark color attire since that compliments the perfume’s depth and maturity.
Should You Buy Bleu de Chanel
If you are a younger or a mature guy who is looking for a perfume quality, blending, playing with notes, and likability all day long, or working in your air conditioned office, then this is a great choice.
People who are close to you will not only notice you but also fall in love with the perfume.
