My first travel abroad was a business trip to UK. While doing my research about “what to shop in London” I found that everything was very expensive and not really affordable in my limited budget. So I decided (from long before I traveled) that I will be coming back with a Chanel No. 5 perfume if not anything else. This decidedly famous perfume was what I had always envisioned to possess when I grew up(read have my own money). So on my first trip to Selfridges, I promptly went to the Chanel counter and asked for this. I smelled the fragrance, liked it (note Not Loved it) and asked the SA to pack it. Loving was not an issue, Possessing the VERY FAMOUS perfume was. While the SA was packing up my buy, I saw a beautiful display of Chance by Chanel and picked up the bottle to smell it and instantly fell in LOVE. So after a lot of indecisive moments(giving up on my dream of No.5 and doing some calculations about how I CANT afford both), I asked the SA to give me Chance instead of No. 5 and thus started my love affair with my favorite perfume Chance by Chanel!
“A sparkling woman smiles at life and loves to fill it with laughter. She is full of fantasy, vitality and energy. Her Fragrance? A sparkling floral constellation that releases the vibrant freshness of Jasmine, notes of Cedar and Teak Wood. Just like her, the fragrance seems to be bursting with tiny bubbles of unpredictable happiness. This fresh new take on Chance is about believing in yourself and giving wings to your dreams. CHANCE Eau Fraîche, a vibrant incarnation of the unexpected fragrance, now takes on a sparkling freshness. The unexpected floral bursts with a lightness and zest as notes of citrus, Water Hyacinth and Jasmine Absolute are highlighted and energized with woody notes of Amber of Patchouli and Fresh Vetiver.”
Overall Verdict :A+
Price– 90$ for 100ml
Will I repurchase – Yes, I believe in the concept of signature scent of a person and this one is ME :)
Overall recommendations– A light, youthful fragrance; If you want to start with the iconic Chanel perfumes..this is a good place..its more young and playful than its more sophisticated and worldly sisters like No. 5 and No.19. I say take your Chance with it!
