The best fragrances for passenger elevators / Part 1
Sometime last summer, way too short. Finally! The package has arrived. I ordered the EdP Rosa Nobile by Acqua di Parma for my rose scent collection. I don't know it, but if at least two people call it the best rose scent ever, I want it.
That childlike joy when you open the package ... And then? An unordered, unfamiliar box stares back at me from the packaging:
Chance Eau Tendre, an EdT by Chanel.
A misdelivery. I have no idea what this fragrance is. Of course, I am disappointed. The package has come a long way, and I waited a long time for it.
And now I'm supposed to send the whole thing back - possibly at my expense - to Spain or somewhere?
Chanel is, after all, a big brand. And I got a bottle with a whole 100 ml, which normally costs between € 100, - and € 190, - in the trade.
Uncertain I look at the emphatically simple, pale purple box.
Parfumo tells me, it is a floral-fresh, spring-like fragrance, which is produced since 2010 as an offspring of the Chanel Chance EdP from 2002, which already contains similar fragrance notes such as hyacinth, jasmine, citrus and musk.
The fragrance notes listed for Chance Eau Tendre EdT are grapefruit and quince in the top notes, hyacinth and jasmine in the heart notes, and amber, iris, musk and cedar in the base notes.
I'm reading up on the reviews. Since the fragrance is described as fresh, floral, delicate, bright, gentle, light, noble and lovely, but also boring and stale. Supposedly it is a very feminine, unobtrusive "clean scent". Uncomplicated and nice. Hm. These are all not necessarily the criteria that are top of mind for me in a perfume. Secretly, I think: aha, all euphemisms for inconsequential, unobtrusive, sweet, well-behaved and clean. In a word: a fragrance that absolutely does not suit me.
I don't usually keep an eye out for scents of this nature. But since he is now already there ...
Should he not like me so well, I'll wear him just as a summer everyday fragrance, when I go to the post office or shopping, etc., I tell myself. It is after all a not so cheap brand fragrance from a good house.
Quince, after all. That does sound appealing. In the past, women have put ripe quince in the laundry box and everything has then smelled so lovely, sweet and fresh after this wonderful fruit.
The delicate women's fragrance was created by the now 78-year-old Jacques Polge, who was responsible for the Chanel fragrances as Head Perfumer from 1978 to 2015. Since 2015, his son Olivier Polge leads Les Parfums Chanel. Jacques Polge has created many great fragrances for Chanel. Coco for example, as well as Egoiste, Allure and just Chance.
Still I hesitate to tear open the sealed cellophane wrapper. Because then it would be over with a return. Chanel and I have never been compatible. I don't like the much-touted Chanel 5 at all. I've used many fragrances from reputable brands in my life - but never one from Chanel. Chanel - that meant for me always elegant, ladylike, noble, discreet, but not exciting or innovative.
Perhaps for that very reason - or despite it - my curiosity won out.
Of course, I have now torn open the cellophane wrapper, hold the round glass bottle with the pale pink perfume in my hand - and spray on it. Fortunately, I have not applied any other fragrance that day, which could distort the impression of Chance Eau Tendre EdT.
The fragrance initially seems cooling, fresh and green. Surprisingly unsweet and pleasant. Kind of grassy. In the next phase, fruity things make themselves felt: a rather tamed, civilized grapefruit and something that first makes me think of a pear, but then turns out to be - unfortunately for my taste much too little intense - quince. Here would have been Chance's chance to be a bit bolder, trendier and more idiosyncratic than the mainstream. But it is missed. Perhaps senior Jacques Polge no longer mustered the courage for such boldness, or his need for harmony defeated his desire for novelty.
By the time Chance Eau Tendre soon slides more and more into the floral, it has already lost the brief youthful verve of the beginning.
The hyacinth, which I had feared as possibly too beguiling, proves to be quite adapted and demure, without any nocturnal sensual hullabaloo, which I would have disliked anyway.
And the jasmine also has nothing erotic, but is so what of clean, a real fresh laundry scent. Who does not seem groomed with it, which is no longer to help.
Probably this is the fragrance that parents like to perceive on their (of course higher) daughters, I think. Because with Chance Eau Tendre, no one is going to tick anyone off. It's just well-adjusted, friendly, nice, calm, gentle and elegant. But it's an elegance more suited to higher daughters than sophisticated, grown-up women.
The base ebbs away in unspecific perfume - purest harmony.
Towards the end develops Chance Eau Tendre a certain creaminess, which spreads so to speak conciliatory about everything negative in the world. There resonates then also a delicate powderiness. The otherwise distinctive iris with its fascinating dryness appears here like a gentle baby powder.
All in all, the fragrance is round, well balanced and radiates a restrained, almost innocent femininity.
Old-fashioned I feel Chance Eau Tendre not, but conservative. Nothing for rebels or individualists. The fragrance does not provide any excesses or deeper thought or inspiration. It is easy going. Harmless. Not for alpha women, party queens or ladies who want to stand out. A good fragrance for everyday life that is so unobtrusive that even the sweetness of the flowers is not really lived out. Purest restraint and completely unexcessive harmony.
Jaques Polge was about seventy when he created this fragrance. It is possible that you notice that in the perfume - this delicate, conciliatory harmony, the clean, lovely, well-groomed, gentle.
Perhaps one will also appreciate this classically elegant calm only in the serenity of age, when the noisy life withdraws more and more.
In terms of character, however, the fragrance fits - and I stick to it - especially to young girls. From a good house. Understands itself.
The weekend has come. I still have to get one or the other in the supermarket. Cat food and whatever else you need to live. Fortunately, the supermarket is not far away. Another quick re-spray of Chance Eau Tendre EdT. I grab my shopping bag and FFP2 mask. The elevator takes me downstairs.
After the small purchase, it goes back to my apartment. In the elevator, I take off the mask - and suddenly the most lovely, heavenly scent of flowers surrounds me. I recognize it immediately: It's Chance Eau Tendre EdT! It has been waiting for me in the elevator car, to surprise me now with its delicate tenderness, soft and airy. And I'm really surprised at how pleasant it smells here. I enjoy the ride up to the fifth floor. For my sake, it could have lasted longer.
Is Chance Eau Tendre EdT perhaps not quite as banal, sweet, and well-behaved as it seems? Not that I plan a repurchase, but I'll stay tuned.

Call me a philistine...
..but this fragrance is just so not mine. And maybe I'm also the only person who sees it that way, but for me the fragrance smells like this:
After the contents of my grandmother's wardrobe. After clothes washed with penetrating smelling detergent, between which loud scented soaps and scented sachets lie. No kidding, that smells 1 to 1 exactly SO for me.
Too bad, because the Flacon is wonderful. I would have liked to have had the in my collection.
To all Chance lovers - no offence, is only (m) a subjective opinion.

A very youthful, easy, inoffensive and also very common Chanel that could have been any other brand
It's not bad but very typical and "lightweight" in composition. I wouldn't know it's Chanel if it weren't for the fact that it is so well-known and recognisable because the style of it is too girly for Chanel, more like D&G Light Blue and very mainstream early 2000s. I also find the floral accord to be a bit overwhelming for my taste but I am very picky with my florals. It's a nice inoffensive fresh floral that I personally wouldn't wear.

Me? Chanel?! At my age?!
I have a long way to go. :-)
Chanel to me always meant "old-female scents." The No.5 for example, I can start with a few, not to say almost no Chanel scents. Like the JPG: I just don't like the base here.
No. 5 reminds me of some film of my youth ("The secret of my success" maybe? I don't remember it anymore...), a sexy, provocative, older blonde with pink lipstick, who drives lasciviously along the back of her sexy long legs in a black long limousine with the lid of a No.5 bottle... :-)

My 63-year-old colleague is for me the epitome of the Chanel lover: No. 5 in winter, Allure in summer. Nothing else. And it also fits into my prejudice drawer, even if not from the outside. (SORRY to all Chanel addicts!!! Shame on me! Please just be indulgent. *g*)

I two years ago in the turquoise... in search of a new fragrance.
A very young girl took care of me. I sniffed my way through, but everything was just half-hearted scents for me, nothing that really "ignited" me. I asked for her favorite fragrance. Then she (just 18 or 19 Lenze young): "My current favorite fragrance? The Chance eau Tendre of Chanel!" "CHANEL???? YOU???? Aren't you a little young for that? So excuse me, but Chanel is so... stale for me!" She said, "Oh?! So the chance scents are completely different..." it said and pulled out the Eau Tendre.

Inside, I had already resigned myself. Chanel. Yes no is clear.

And then... the Chanel revelation...! Fresh, citric-fresh with a light fresh flower touch, but not too much, due to the base of amber, cedar wood, iris and musk (okay, I don't smell it, I've written it off here *g*) it never gets stinging or annoying. It refreshes on hot summer days, the hotter the better. Because I'm not really into pure flowery fragrances, so the basis here must be decisive for me. Sweet or flowery-fleshy is here really nothing at all.

And promptly a 50ml bottle moved into my collection and my impression has changed completely at least for the Chance series.

It is - as with everything in life - a matter of taste! :-)

no-brainer
no-brainer (self-runner; self-runner; easily solvable problem; thing that doesn't need any thought)

Just like a no-brainer, Eau Tendre is for me. When I don't know which scent it should be, my hands always glide over to him. Even though he is often called "nothing spectacular" here, for me he is somehow already.

For a long time it was the fragrance of my aunt and I always found it beautiful. Unfortunately, my money has never been enough to afford this sweetheart. Furthermore, I was still of the opinion at that time that this was YOUR fragrance and that I could not buy it because of that. However, my attitude towards belonging to fragrance and wearer has changed and I think everyone can smell as they like. (Imitation is the most beautiful compliment!) One can still make the smell of desire one's own if one wants to, e.g. link it with one's own memories. Or it remains with the association to the original carrier. As you like. Anyway, I've been able to make Eau Tendre my own thing. It is my favorite working fragrance.
He is a fresh floral evergreen who is nevertheless extraordinary and stands out from other floral-fresh scents. He kind of has that certain something. The durability is mediocre, 5-6 hours I smell him at me. After that I can only sniff him at my clothes.
For me the only Chanel fragrance that suits me.

The smallest evil....
...that was the base where Chance Eau Tendre came to me. After a long period of abstinence from fragrances, I finally wanted a perfume that would make me feel good all around. Not too sweet, not too heavy, not too girlish, but fresh, flowery, but nevertheless not confusing. Sometimes I can get a bit single-tracked when I put something in my head, and so I literally tried dozens of fragrances in the coming weeks (!). On the strip, on the skin, sometimes both, sometimes three on one arm... So exactly the way you shouldn't do it. But you know, when despair seizes you, you can get a little neurotic - at least me. At some point I literally had had enough and I decided to simply buy a fragrance to put an end to the tragedy. I had Eau Tendre on my skin three times before - and I marched straight to one of my favourite perfumeries to buy the smallest bottle. I wasn't 100 percent sure and 30 ml are not too much. In my perfumery I did not meet the unbelievably nice, knowledgeable and patient young lady, but two young men, brand Hipster. My wish for "Chance Eau Tendre" was commented with "Well, if you really want something of high quality, then you should go in the direction of natural fragrances. At Chanel you pay the name, but the perfumes are simply stirred together in huge stainless steel tanks...." Zack, slap in the face. Politely I had another (supposedly natural - and of course even more expensive) scent sprayed on my hand, but it didn't let me spontaneously break into hymns of praise: And I left with Chance Eau Tendre. In the next weeks I used it again and again, found it good, but not particularly exciting. Until the temperatures rose - and every time I left the house I was accompanied by a wonderfully fresh, harmonious, delicate but clearly perceptible little cloud. Apparently Chance Eau Tendre needs slightly higher temperatures on my skin in order to show off perfectly. It starts with a fresh citrus top note. For me it doesn't smell clearly like grapefruit (here my standard of comparison is always from Hermes: Eau de Pamplemousse Rose), but more delicate, less bitter. I imagine myself smelling quince, but again fresher and a little more bitter than I have stored quince juice as a smell. Flowers are spreading underneath: I can smell jasmine and iris, the hyacinths actually not (hyacinths in closed rooms belong to the worst of all for me, just like lilies of the valley or huge lilac bouquets). But the flower scent is very sweet (not sweet!) - maybe this is due to the hyacinth. Over the next few hours, the fragrance transforms into a creamy, fresh, flowery layer of fragrance that can be smelled up close and is wonderful. After some time I almost don't notice the scent anymore (except I sprayed it into my hair in the morning and fan the scent air to myself). But: It's the scent that colleagues and friends keep telling me about! Meanwhile the 30 ml are almost used up and Chance Eau Tendre is the very first fragrance on the "Absolutely buy again" list.
One more word on the subject of "natural" and "steel tank" versus the romantic image of scent noses that lovingly taste extracts of precious fragrances in back rooms.
I'm sorry that I (as a prevented chemist) can't really believe that. I am convinced that the creeds, Etros and Atkinsons of this world - which my hipsters have praised as being of unequally high quality and "natural" - are always a mixture. And I don't think it's bad at all. What I find bad, however, is when I am suggested something is wrong with me, my taste and my nose, because I find Chance Eau Tendre from the stainless steel tank wonderful, but "Love in White" from Creed smells for me unfortunately after the contents of wet diapers.
Well, dear people, that had to be said!

A disappointing and bland fruity floral
Chance Eau Tendre doesn't have an inch of that distinctive Chanel quality we all know, so it seems. This fragrance is almost a complete replicate of Live Platinum by Jennifer Lopez. You should have seen the Chanel representative's face when I openly pointed out this similarity.

Going on smooth yet soapy, Chance eau Tendre has a somewhat synthetic edge. Don't get me wrong, I do like both this fragrance and Live Platinum to a certain extent, however with the latter, I tired of it easily and ended up giving the bottle to someone who appreciated it.

The grapefruit and quince are the obvious top notes, which tend to sparkle with vitality and youth. The heart however becomes increasingly soapy and musky, which gives me the notion that this fragrance hasn't been as well constructed as other fragrances in the Chanel line.

With this fragrance, I think that Chanel is trying to please the younger crowd, letting them know that Chanel isn't just for the sophisticated, older ladies. In my personal opinion, and this is coming from someone in their early 20's, I'd much rather wear Chanel No.5 over this soapy, synthetic floral mess.

The scent may be interesting, yes, and the lasting strength impressive like most Chanel perfumes are, but I honestly wouldn't advise anyone to fork out the big bucks for this. I say enough of all the Chance flankers, give us something new and unique Chanel!

Light, feminine, discrete, but nothing special. A "mainstream" daily scent for the good season. We are very far form the Chanel's myths!
