“Fragrance is a form of poetry. It doesn’t speak but gives so much” – Jacques Polge
Fragrance is about the way we perceive it. We all perceive different smells in different intensities, but only some of them are able to appreciate them. Best example is woody or animalic accords, e.g., Oakmoss. It is essential component and helps to bind different accords in many blends. Some people really appreciate the facets of Oakmoss and some absolutely hate it. In this complex world with diverse taste preferences, Perfumer Jacques Polge gave birth to Bleu de Chanel in 2010, which according to me, is one of the masterpiece.
Key ingredients of this Fragrance are Labdanum, Nutmeg, Incense, Sandalwood, Patchouli, Vetiver, Citruses, Mint, Jasmine, Cedarwood and pepper.
Olfactory Description :
The Fragrance is very sophisticated and complex. It belongs to aromatic woody family with amber and musky tones. The first impression is aromatic but in synchronization with woody notes. Citrus and minty top notes are finely tuned with rosy tonalities boosting the effect of wood character on top. Persistently modifying scent, after certain hours evolve to firm spicy tones but mildly floral, filling the void between harsh notes. The creamy woody facets along with ambery hints win the hearts till the end, showing the skills of the real artist.
Everything we see tells us something about it and so is true for Bleu de Chanel. The classically designed bottle with royal blue color and magnetic cap conveys elegance.
Hats off to the legend Jacques Polge who was the nose behind fabulously created Bleu de Chanel and also others like Chance, Chanel No.5 Eau Premiere, Coco Mademoiselle, Egoiste and many more…
