The more mature blue
As Bleu de Chanel Eau de Parfum owner, I was naturally curious when I found a small sample of the newest Bleu de Chanel derivative in the package with Guerlain Homme. First, I asked myself whether there was any difference between the two. So I sprayed my Eau de Parfum on the left and the 2018 version on the right. The opening is indeed similar in both, but the differences are immediately noticeable without the need for concentrated smelling. The new Bleu de Chanel is just as slightly citric in its opening, but by no means as strong as the Eau de Parfum. Instead, a very pronounced woodiness dominates here, which only sets in much later on the left wrist. In eau de parfum, the lemon is still clearly perceptible and wrapped in wood. In the perfume, this wood is much stronger and the freshness is somewhat more in the background. It thus appears much darker, more mature and is definitely something for the, in my opinion, more sophisticated clothing style, while the "more youthful" Eau de Parfum is also casually well wearable.
In perfume, for example, we are dealing with an even more adult variant of the Eau de Parfums, which in my opinion is already an adult, and which, by the way, is on the same level in terms of shelf life and sillage.

My opinion: If you have the Eau de Parfum like me, you don't have to buy the 2018 Bleu.

It already was. I know, my comment is not very detailed, but somehow there was not so much to write about this fragrance.

The best version of "Bleu" yet.
First of all: The wheel is probably not reinvented with a fragrance like Bleu de Chanel. Accordingly, I find the wave of criticism that Bleu's 2018 version of "Parfum" is also being criticized here understandable. Whether it is justified, however, that is the question...

In my opinion, even a house like Chanel with a mainstream fragrance like Bleu should not be forbidden to adapt its releases to the current time. So I don't think it's a bad thing that a "revised" version will be released in 2018, regardless of the fragrance. I am now in possession of all three concentrations and I think they have managed quite well.

I first got to know the original "Bleu DNA" when I was 18, when I started to deal with scents for the first time. At that time, I only knew one Hilfiger aftershave, which I had received as a gift once, and just One Million, which turned out to be an instant mistake. But well, fragrances like Bleu or Terre d'Hermès seemed more exclusive and "more bang for my buck" to me, as you can understand. Unfortunately, I didn't have the "buck" part at that time, which is why it stayed with the turquoises during an occasional encounter.

From today's point of view, the EdT smells like a toilet block to me at first. So much hot citrus in the opening, is that bergamot? Whew! I'll have to deal with that first. Fortunately, this ebbs away and leaves behind the typical "blue" scent, which has so often been copied by different houses. But to be honest, one of the better ones right from the start, probably because the citric freshness remains a little longer and relatively quickly for me at that time indefinable woody notes are added. The EdP, on the other hand, goes directly with a very sweet and hardly spicy lemon into the solid. And she's really very cute and it stays that way for a while. Almost like dextrose. What were they thinking? A little sandalwood in the drydown nestles imperceptibly to the lemon and supports it in its lemoniness and with increasing duration the Eau de Parfum for me goes almost in an oriental direction.

Actually already a quite chic alternative to the youthfully fresh Eau de Toilette. But to be honest, I already wanted more wood from the first smell of the EdP version. I don't like things like Invictus Aqua or Hawas. Especially not this new "Y Eau de Parfum" from YSL, a completely superfluous fragrance that can hardly be surpassed in sweetness.

And that brings us to the Bleu de Chanel perfume. As if someone had answered my prayers at Chanel, the original Bleu DNA is present in the perfume version, but with much more sandalwood and less citrus. I find it interesting that the appearance here seems to be reversed: first the wood comes, then later the fruits. As a result, the fragrance appears to me darker, more mature, more adult and also rounder, because the exhausting beginning is missing. The fragrance is also much denser, more complex than the other two. The sandalwood is a very light one. But was also to be expected at Chanel. All in all, I think it is a very good composition and a worthy update - I doubt that the youngest ones will take advantage of the perfume concentration, and that's why it fits quite well, or not?

I can't complain about shelf life and Sillage, by the way. I experience it more often that Extrait is tighter on the skin than EdT or EdP, and as long as I get enough of it (which is quite the case here), I'm not complaining. Because I wear scents mainly for myself, not for others.

If you succeed too early, you start copying yourself. Friedensreich Hundertwasser
The highly acclaimed blue has its own small shrine at the turquoise, next to it stands the eau de toilette as a tester. If it is presented in such a way, it must be a top smell or the saleswomen have still nothing new in stock, which they can present. Actually I wanted the Guerlain habit rouge dresscode issue 2018, the nice lady first unfortunately didn't know what the habit rouge is, then when she showed it to me, she told me, she has never seen this dressigen before. Another story, so I went one rack further and discovered it in its true blue splendour.
The splendour in the color is great, the bottle I find also quite nice, the smell. Where the hell is he? After a little more than half an hour, this magnificent guy has almost disappeared. Too bad for one with the perfume in his name. Sometimes I find it difficult to wash off certain eau de toilettes after a test, they are so strong, then again this bleu which somehow does not really want to pass in concentration as perfume.

The impression of freshness at the beginning is very good and I also had a grin on my face. Unfortunately, nothing came after that. Very linear and no change. That doesn't bother me, in general I'm a proponent of products that don't change much, I understand the whole babble from the top note, heart note to the base note, but it's a pity if the base note is already there, this after less than half an hour.

The producer Olivier Polge has created a few Wummser, I mean the Valentino uomo or the Invictus which are both Sillage sizes. This one, which is not bad, to call a perfume is a little too marketing fantasy. Of course, we all like good, safe and long-lasting fragrances. Then I must reach out to others, unfortunately not this one.

I really like the cedar, it looks a bit woody but also has ambroxan in it, otherwise I can't explain the extreme freshness at the beginning. But probably it will be citrus chords that mix in.

For all who are looking for a pleasant and long-lasting fragrance, can take the normal eau de toilette. In the beginning it is even a bit stronger because of the pepper, after that both hardly differ at all.
Here clearly too much wanted and too little achieved.

Fresh paint for boredom?
"Rarely been so disappointed by a fragrance" unfortunately I don't think about it so seldom anymore the last few months. Does this have anything to do with the samples I get from them in turquoise? Maybe. Why am I mentioning this? BdC perfume reminds me that BdC exists. But I have to admit that lately I have tended towards dramaturgy; the disappointment does not necessarily stem from the quality of the work, but rather from my sometimes snobbish elitism. Bleu de Chanel, whether EdT, EdP or just P, is not bad, but by far not good either.

The perfume resembles the eau de parfum and the eau de toilette like an egg to another. No matter if the skin is different or not, the variance in taste is very small anyway, but that's why I'm writing this comment here. The opening is dominated by mandarin with vetiver. Citric-sweet, but also earthy, musty, a little smoky. Bad combination, I think. After a few minutes the sandalwood comes out that it is New Caledonian, I dare to doubt. Very. And then a little shy Tonka and Bleu de Chanel Parfum is ready.

As previous speakers have already said: the differences are very small. Apart from the suddenly embarrassing performance, most people don't pay much attention to the small differences, for example that the EdP contains more lemon than mandarin. I like trying to nuance so fine, but then Chanel shouldn't do that first, it's a good match for online mix-it-yourself providers, but a primary rock? and second, the perfume should be more than just passable.

Not a Groundbreaking Fragrance
I was able get a sample from Chanel boutique. Since I have tested both EDT and EDP (I owned the EDP & I love it)

I have sprayed it on my skin for few days.
In the opening scent, I can smell just a little citrus scent passing by and faded quickly. I quite surprised the sandalwood last long on my skin.
What I get from the parfum, a warm sandalwood scent and contrast with the EDP version (which I always get a sharp and harsh spicy woody scent).

The parfum version did not last long on my skin, usually 5 hours on my skin. I quite disappointed of the parfum performance compared with EDP (more than 8 hours I get from EDP), and the sillage also weak.

I found nothing groundbreaking in this fragrance. What Olivier Polge did was he toned down the EDP version and sacrificed the longevity to create more smoother Bleu de Chanel version.

Besides that, the price of this parfum version is overpriced. Do try Salvatore Ferragamo - Acqua Essenziale Blu. The price is reasonable, but you have to respray the fragrance after 4 hours.

Overall, it is a good fragrance. It is smooth, not offense, but the price is unjustified.
