Very helpful Review
Chanel is a brand that I had more or less ignored during all the years of my fragrance journey. My focus was always more on Armani, JPG or Dior fragrances. But since I immersed myself a bit deeper into the world of fragrances, the more I became interested and curious to test them. So my nose had to make the acquaintance with Chanel Fragrances sometime. CAHSEE was a flanker, which did not appeal to me at all from a visual point of view. Nevertheless something made me give him a chance and test him. It turned out to be a good decision and I fell in love with the fragrance at the first sniff. What Mr Polge has created here is a straightforward, elegant, beautiful fragrance that makes a very natural and balanced impression on me. Without corners and edges, soft and yet sensually deep, it enchants not only the wearer but also his environment. There has never been anyone who did not like this nose porn on me and I enjoy the privilege of a rather large circle of friends. There have been compliments without end, which makes him a real crowd pleaser.
About the scent itself... CAHSEE starts with a frosty mint, walking hand in hand with the fruity sweet tangerine and the light woodiness of the cypress towards the middle. I can hear the sweet creaminess of the tonka bean in my head, which opens more and more towards the heart. Here too, the fragrance is still influenced by a slight freshness, where I'm not quite sure if it comes from tangerine or mint? The pepper and sage I personally hardly notice. For me, the fragrance becomes creamier and softer towards the base. Finally, the addictive sweetness of the tonka bean combines with the sensually sweet woodiness of sandalwood. The cypress comes through here again and again with its woodiness and gently rounds off the fragrance. What remains is a really beautiful and creamy woody drydown that is addictive.
The durability is in the upper range and I am rewarded with 4 sprayers, which are standard with me, with a very good durability of well over 10h+. The Sillage is quite present in the first 3-4h and the scent projects well around you. The scent can fill rooms.
The bottle reflects the fragrance very well, I think. Elegant, simple without frills, almost sterile and timeless. The only thing I do not like so much is the spray head. It blows out a lot of scent water, which makes you hold the bottle a little bit further away when you apply it.
Bottom line... Chanel, especially Mr. Polge has succeeded in creating a small masterpiece that is unparalleled. An elegant fragrance, which combines beautiful natural nuances and still manages to appeal to a broad mass. For me this is the most beautiful Chanel fragrance and definitely a jewel in my collection
