Think Bleu-Launched back in 2010, Bleu de Chanel is the olfactory translation of an idea of urban sophistication. In 2014 the fragrance sees the introduction of a newer version, created by Chanel’s in-house perfumer Jacques Polge. The inspiration behind the new eau de parfum version is to explore a sensual territory, made of heady essences, that also capture the energy of a city at night. Treasured in the same squared dark bottle that hit the markets back in 2010, the new and more intense variation offers a composition that blends an oriental-woody twist with warm and sensual accords. The scent’s new structure begins with the luminous freshness of Sicilian mandarin and zesty lemon, while aromatic notes of cedar and Haitian vetiver add to the whole composition an elegant vibe. The perfume’s more seductive appeal is clearly represented in its closing notes of warm amber, savory vanilla, Venezuelan tonka bean and New Caledonian sandalwood, that add to the trail a warm and almost carnal facet.
