Allrounder
I had ordered me some time ago a filling of this fragrance.
Once tested and off in cabinet without thinking further about it.
I usually only go to the box where the samples are stored when I could seal a fragrance deal to enclose a few samples.
Hmm, Chanel 1957....
Pulled cap off atomizer, held nose to it and noticed a somewhat spicy, bright scent. Spicy is actually not my scent, but nevertheless, off with it on the skin.
Lo and behold, bright as a sunbeam, yes, slightly spicy but pleasant; no scratchiness or dust that gets stuck in the throat.
Warm as the sun on the skin, light-footed and clear.
Fresh as a spring morning at sunrise.
Yes, it reminds of spring, sun, lush green and clear blue sky.
Shines bright and clear, at the same time the fragrance warms.
I find it an absolute all-rounder, a very exclusive all-rounder that makes you think of the Côte d'azur.

"Keep your heels, head and standards high!"
The "Day of sweatpants" on January 21 has just passed and should we, especially in this, pay more attention to Coco Chanel's saying above.
How quickly we sneak through the day at this time with our heads hanging and thinking, "It's not worth it after all!"!
Putting on something pretty, a light makeup with lipstick: that often falls by the wayside!
And what use is the most fascinating fragrance if such a sad figure in a baggy outfit stares back at us from the mirror?
"Chin up!" say the English!

Well, maybe "1957" from the house of Chanel is the right companion here through these days.

Alone the aroma of Neroli, which relaxes and conjures a smile in the now, would be a reason.
Sun and carefree, ease and smile float as an underlying theme over this fragrance composition.
Neroli also manages here to outshine a generous powdery layer of proud iris, white musk and other fragrance notes.
It's more than just a little light here and there: princess neroli knows how to shine.
The creamy warmth of honey goes very well with this; so does the silky, silvery cedar note!
It gives a bit of stability so this fragrance creature doesn't float away so easily.
A skillful artist created this fragrance fabric.
A "commodity" with a light luxury touch for all times of the day and year is thus created.
Fine and nice it is, this light fragrance beauty and always appropriate!
This also makes "1957" so pleasant. Nothing is loud, annoying or memory-heavy: the "classics" of the house of Chanel remain here outside.
Timeless elegance is mixed with a lightness that is yet surprisingly long present and does not change much: a little lighter this fragrance over time, similar to an air spirit!

I like Chanel's "1957" precisely because of these qualities, this certain nonchalance.
But yet, because of that name, it reminds me that Christian Dior died on October 21, 1957 while taking a cure in Montecatini Terme. And that always makes me sad.
(Or is this fragrance a kind of secret homage to the great competitor?)

Beautiful Complex Musk Fragrance
This beautiful scent is like a airy breeze that just caresses your senses with it's multi faceted complex scent accords. It shimmers on your skin showing notes of white musk, bergamot, iris, neroli, cedar and regal powdery touches sweetened by honey.

When you first spray the scent upon your skin you are greeted with fresh sparkling aldehydes closely followed by orange blossom. These aldehydes do weave in and out of the scent during the course of it's evolution. But the star of the show is the musks which blend beautifully with all the other subtle notes.

The projection is within arms length and it does have decent sillage and a distinct presence over it's long life of over several hours.

I'm quite impressed , it's a clean refreshing complex light breezy scent that tantalizes your senses with it's beautiful aromas. Big thumbs up!

Smell and sleep scent
Aw... Very sleepy, calming one. So suitable for bedtime! It has aldehydes start than honey+ lots of baby powder. That also remembered me baby shampoo. Its mature, calming, relaxing, sleepy. Reminds me the scent of Alberto Morillas done= by Kilian Voulez Vouz Coucher Avec Moi. Also Tom Ford Metallique. White musky, powdery honey. Makes me sleepy aw. Like doing bath and relaxed. Sometimes it can be too much /overpowering when you over spray.

"Places of longing and cosmetics"
Like when you're
you would have opened up
now in this time
the place of longing
to be named,
to feel,
to search.
And to visit.

That would drive you,
criss-cross
all over the world,
on a large scale
and little ones.

Fabulous this:
on a switch,
than the
was still possible,
the only and eternal
Ticket
in your name
to have bought
deposited by someone.
Who do you think?

With unlimited validity
and travel possibilities
far above this planet
out.

On all paths
on land,
in water,
in the air,
in the treetops,
in the ether
and underground -
the intermediate worlds for this -
takes place
a lively
Back and forth
Your provisions
is a light heart
and the simple mind.
Plus a childlike amazement
and the knowledge of it,
that it never
even just two of them
exactly the same
Snowflakes.
All the time not.
Never.

The background is
transmitted light
substances rustle,
Openness and
good will
offer themselves,
and cut fruit,
sparkling with cold,
is served on glass plates
offered.

Miracle Cloud Elasticity Scaleidiscopes
show the whole
and unexpected colourfulness,
just when the mild light
of the sun
sharpens
and embraces.

Rare enough.
And just very briefly.

Sliding
of all that liveliness,
whose characteristics
is the visible elegance,
sounds like a whisper,
back then,
when you were initiated
into the first secrets
of an eternally young life.

Today, you're br /> hardly a few years older
and yet you have.. almost forgot everything.

Well, you remember that it's best to
with a sky-blue umbrella
let go,
when the summer rains fall.

That the aliens
have long since recognized,
that the crosswalk
on Abbey Road
have become a holy place,
at that moment,
as JohnPaulGeorgeRingo
went over it.

And that the tears,
that the earth cries,
yes somewhere
be washed up.

That maybe
the pollen
the Cosmeen
should be enough,
to help us become
and misdemeanors,
the wonder and amazement
and becoming silent
to explain.
Wenn it succeeds then,
to deal with
to blow away.

Sweet melancholy.

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________br />
Spontaneously had this scent
to do with ports for me,
with the freshness
and the movement,
with the arrival
and the
go for a ride.

A wave
with white cloths -
to say goodbye.
And wistfulness in the heart
Take a breath,
Flower aromas everywhere,
Fabrics smell clean,
and fine material is non-slip.

Here the term
Longing
another expression
in one,
found in this perfume.

What more is there to say?
_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________br />
Oh yeah:

better yet,
than to be blown away with it,
is,
to become a Cosmee.

Experiment.

The elegant lady in the background
I recently ordered a bottling.
Oh and it was such a surprising moment when I realized how great this fragrance is.

So I sprayed it on, thought nothing of it The evaluations had been good, but I also knew that my nose sometimes does not sympathize with the other noses.
And how happy I was when a very fine, elegant fragrance streamed into my nose!
Even my sister, who is not usually interested in perfume, was fond of it "Smells so noble," she said (And not at all old-fashioned!;
I'm only 20, so I'm a little critical of that)

Yes, it smells like an expensive fragrance, the Elite Don't push it, he doesn't need to.
Very elegantly some musk and neroli, but I did not know yet that I could like these scents as much as I do with this fragrance here.
Chapeau Chanel!

Pearl
If you take a pearl in your hand and look at it for a while, you will notice that its perfection is wonderfully imperfect.
How Please Is This To Be Understood?
Okay from the top...
How exactly does a milky pearl emerge that shimmers in all the colours of the rainbow at the same time? Exactly... as a troublemaker in a shell. The unpleasant dust grain is actually covered with more than 2000 layers. With industrious patience, the shell covers the Piesaker with opaque and iridescent phlegm for almost two years. This in turn becomes firm and finally appears as a splendid gem, which adorns fingers, necks or ears.

The scent ...
It's by no means the dust grain. No, rather the finished product. The pearl as a gemstone. You can feel the years of work, the attention to detail. The scent changes subtly from soapy clean citric fresh to classic madamy noble powdery.
It's not a rebellious dominant scent. Rather a stylistic device to underline the natural grace or elegance. Not playful, but noble. No tüdeldidü and halölle smell, rather thoughtfully, completely self-confident self.
But.... not perfect. He just seems like... similar to the pearl. There is hardly a perfect, complete round pearl (in nature), there is always an unevenness. But exactly this not perfect, gives the stone its uniqueness.
So also the Chanel 1957.
At the beginning it starts quite citrically fresh and quite present. Too much neroli, I suppose After 5 min it is then tamed, softer and more powdery.
I like the middle.... There it becomes soft, sweetish, doesn't seem so distant anymore and adapts harmoniously to my skin. Towards the end it becomes woodier, deeper and gets the Chanel-like signature.

Conclusion:
A classic spring fragrance that can conjure up a good mood in the right doses. A pearl among the many scents of this time. A calm, somewhat cool, distanced fragrance. But who, as soon as he grabs one, won't let go. A wonderfully almost perfect fragrance to a wonderfully almost imperfect wearer.

"I want a perfume for women that smells like a woman!" - Coco Chanel
When Karl Lagerfeld "the Great" turned off into the entrance of the cosmetics headquarters, he already had the firm idea in his head. The renovation of the New York boutique on 57th Street was about to be finalised, and the reopening was approaching. He has also just moved his Métiers-d'art collection to the Metropolitan Museum. These events should be celebrated with a new perfume in addition to the current fashion collection. The fragrance could be called 1957. At that time Coco received the Mode Oscar, the "Neiman Marcus Award for Distinguished Service in the Field of Fashion" in America. It was the year of her comeback after the war and overseas she was still very successful for a long time. That would be a nice homage to Gabriele Chanel and the Americans. Oliver (Polge) will certainly agree. And he will certainly come up with something great that would combine the idea with a fragrance.

This is how the 17th perfume of the series "Les Exclusives" by Chanel was born.

And now, before I continue with the perfume description at this point, I would like to take a short detour.

Last year, perfume generated sales of around 40 billion dollars worldwide. Brands, manufactories, maisons and manufacturers as far as the eye can see. The attempt to test all new releases promptly gives an idea of how senselessly Sisyphos must have tried to fulfil his task.

At some point, when I took the news magazine "Der Spiegel" in my hand, a little light came on to me. Sooner or later the same topics will be discussed in all newspapers, only with a different focus and usually differentiated according to one's own political convictions. What applies to various magazines and trade journals also determines the fragrance landscape. Trends are gradually being picked up and interpreted differently by different manufacturers throughout the market. Today I don't follow every brand anymore. Etat Libre d'Orange has been stolen from me for a long time. If someone enjoys driving his olfactory ghost train laps and tarring his synapses at the same time, he is welcome to do so. I'll wait outside.

On the other hand, I like most of Guerlain and Chanel's creations very much. My expectations are disproportionately often fulfilled by the two traditional houses. Under the direction of Thierry Wasser or Olivier Polge, no "toxic" compounds are invented, but poems of molecules, a scenttaura that caresses the wearer. For me, the most beautiful olfactory encounters are feminine, creamy, powdery, floral and pure. 1957 is in my eyes a direct hit.

In the first line you will find a white musk fragrance that does what it does best in a fine manner, smelling of cleanliness, cleanliness and sensuality. Oliver Polge himself describes 1957 as follows: "Its essence, its basis is white musk from eight varieties, only comes to full bloom on the skin".

I would like to be honest, with a blind test I could only have clearly stated that this is an ethereal feminine musk scent. Besides, I only noticed the similarity with two other fixed sizes. The fragrance that Cacharel has made successful with Noa and White Suede refined with leather is varied by the perfumer with soft tones of Jacques Polges beige.

In 1957, Oliver Polge created a wonderful understatement fragrance in the tradition of his father and according to Coco Chanel's motto: "I want a perfume for women that smells like a woman" Hand on your heart, don't we all want that?

Neroli, soft as a kitten and a laundry fire, in which AugstA screams inwardly - oh no, please no laundry fire - but then sinks gently into a freshly washed and covered down pillow. Who could resist that? Sooo pleasant!

Artfully swinging, creamy spring-like elegance scent of old French school
Interestingly, nearly 90% of the "1957" owners are ladies. The new noble Chanel has been launched as unisex and although its beautiful, floating, noble design will undoubtedly enchant many female earthlings, I can certainly say that I find it to be absolutely ideal for men's use as well.

In general it can be said that - and I join the many previous speakers - Chanel has succeeded with "1957" in creating a wonderfully positive, light-footed, truly original French fragrance, which, precisely because of its harmony and balance, is ideally suited to the interface between man and woman and in its very natural cleanliness, freshness and elegance almost has the character of a very noble body spray
Discreet neroli, fluffy-fresh bergamot, very understated honey spots from the middle phase onwards, generally a mixture of silky, somewhat soapy, powdery, with a very positive, relaxed basic style. Light musk primes the whole thing a little bit.

Absolute buy/test recommendation for both sexes and its slightly upscale price justified. Artful.
