Chanel Chance is an oriental floral fragrance for women, launched in 2003. The designer of this perfume is Jaques Polge. This fragrance is a very feminine, stylish and sophisticated created for young women, those who still dream about high goals. It is a unique and elegant scent, suitable for any occasion. It offers safety, inspiration and reminds you that in any situation there is a chance to enjoy being happy.
Chance hides a fresh floral scent with spicy and sensual ingredients. The primary notes are made of pink pepper, lemon, and pineapple mixed in a medium jasmine and hyacinth phase. At the base are sensual notes of amber, patchouli, and white musk.
It is a persistent essence that smells like a garden full of fresh flowers and fruits with woody accents.
The lovely Chanel is perfect for the warm months. It is versatile as it can be used for every day, out with friends, office, park or in an intimate occasion. Change acts refreshing, tempting and energizing in a refined way. It is clean and sophisticated, very long lasting and absolutely triggers my positive thinking. There is a positive quality about it that lifts me up when I wear it. The sillage is moderate, longevity is good. It easily stays 8 hours on the skin and a whole day when it is applied to the clothes. This is the only Chanel perfume presented in a round bottle. Chance and Coco Mademoiselle are the youngest fragrances of Chanel, and Chance particularly targets the younger crowns. This is like the younger version of Coco Mademoiselle. Both are citrus sweetened by florals and warmed by earthy patchouli. Change starts off with citron, while Coco Mademoiselle uses orange. Both use florals scent rose/ jasmine. Both are fruity, warm, delicious and enjoyable. The difference to me is that Chance has sharper citrus and deeper patchouli. Also, Chance smells better on me, more powerful and significant. However, both are modern and delightful.
It is distinct from the rest of the popular fragrances of the Chanel House. There is no trace of linearity. Tons of patchouli, iris, musk and also pronounced opening of amber. I know, it doesn’t sound very unique. I’ve met many perfumes with these ingredients, but they are really well appreciated. Chance is definitely a brilliant example of this, it offers the sweet freshness of pineapple, the warm aroma of the pink pepper, the dark woodiness of the vetiver and the powerful patchouli in the base dressed up with soft floral petals of iris, jasmine, and hyacinth. The pineapple is raw and juicy, the floral accords are rich but natural, the woodsy notes are truly reminiscent of a deep, dense forest.
This fragrance makes me feel confident, it inspires and reminds me to take a chance. You never know what fortune might lie ahead.
