What does Bleu de Chanel Smell Like?

Bleu de Chanel has a very unique smell that is often hard to describe. It's a mix of woodsy and citrus scents, with a touch of spice. It's not too strong, but it's definitely noticeable. The overall effect is refreshing, masculine, and sophisticated.

The key notes of Bleu de Chanel are Calabrian bergamot, Geranium leaves and Haitian vetiver.

The full fragrance pyramid of Bleu de Chanel features top notes of coriander water, sage oil and green tangerine; middle notes of lavender flowers, leather accord and geranium; base notes of Tonka beans, white cedar wood essence, and smokey oak moss extract.

These ingredients create a very complex and unique smell that has made Bleu de Chanel so popular for decades.

How long does Bleu de Chanel last?

The longevity of Bleu de Chanel is exceptional. You can expect it to last anywhere from four to six hours if you wear a light application, and up to eight or nine hours on the skin after a heavy application.

It's important not to apply too much though because the Bleu de Chanel scent is very strong. Too much may be overpowering for some people and blemish the overall experience.

Its best to apply Bleu de Chanel to pulse points such as your wrists, neck and just behind the ears.

The Bottle and Packaging

Bleu de Chanel comes in a dark blue glass bottle that features an intricate design on its front side, with "Chanel" written on it in bold white font. The top of the lid is very stylish as well - it's made of silver metal, with another emblem engraved into it.

Although this fragrance has been around for decades already, the packaging remains one-of-a-kind and unlike anything else you can find today. It really stands out from other fragrances available at your local department store or online retailer - which may be part of what makes Bleu De Chanel so popular.

Don't expect any extravagant or elaborate bottle designs from Chanel.

The brand has become known for more subtle designs, that stay true to the classic nature of the Chanel design philosophy.

Bleu de Chanel Compared: EDP, EDT, and Parfum

Bleu de Chanel has now been formulated into 3 different strengths: each with distinctive properties.

Here we'll give a quick rundown of each, to help you decide which is right for you.

Bleu de Chanel EDT

Bleu de Chanel EDT was the original formulation of the fragrance, released in 2010.

It features top notes of coriander water, sage oil and green tangerine; middle notes of lavender flowers, leather accord and geranium; base notes of Tonka beans, white cedar wood essence, and smokey oak moss extract.

It lasts anywhere from four to six hours if you wear a light application, and up to eight.

As it is an Eau de Toilette formulation, it contains a slighter lower percentage of perfume oil compared with the Eau de Parfum and pure Parfum concentrations.

That being said, the Bleu de Chanel EDT formulation is still the most popular edition of the fragrance, and is a world-wide bestseller.

Bleu de Chanel EDP

The Bleu de Chanel EDT was reformulated into the Bleu de Chanel EDP in 2014. It is more intense than its predecessor with a slightly different smell profile.

It has top notes that are similar to that of the EDT but feature grapefruit instead of tangerine - this gives it an overall brighter scent that still manages to remain masculine because of darker scents like rosemary oil which bring added depth to the fragrance.

Bleu de Chanel EDP lasts for up to eight or nine hours on the skin and is available in a variety of sizes from 50ml all the way up to 200ml.

Bleu de Chanel Parfum

The Bleu de Chanel Parfum was released in 2016, and is the most intense concentration of the fragrance.

The Bleu de Chanel Parfum features notes of coriander water, sage oil and green tangerine; top notes of grapefruit and sea salt accord; middle notes of lavender flowers, leather accord and geranium; base notes of Tonka beans, white cedar wood essence, and smokey oak moss extract.

It is the longest lasting variation as well: it will last up to 12 hours on the skin when applied in a heavy application, and up to 16 if worn lightly.

It is also by far the most expensive variation of Bleu de Chanel that you can buy: it costs well over $200 for 100ml which makes this version much more suited towards people who really like wearing cologne every day.

The different concentrations of the Bleu de Chanel fragrance all have their own unique properties, so it's important to decide which one is right for you before making your purchase.

All three formulations are exceptional fragrances that will make you feel confident and stylish - but it ultimately comes
