Where'd you go?!
In the middle of the eighties my former friend went on a study trip to Paris. He created Cristalle for me in a Chanel boutique. I remember that I kept the luxury item like a treasure and only wore the scent on special occasions to get something out of it for a long time. The EdT lasted so long at that time that you didn't have to replenish it often - once covered with a few sprays, the scent was still visible on your clothes days later. I found the scent so beautiful that I put it on regularly, with small breaks in between, again and again. In the middle of the nineties the EdP came onto the market, and when the EdT was not available in my regular perfumery, I took the other variant. The fragrance remained the same, the quantity could naturally be further reduced and the price difference was not so extreme. At some point I wanted something different again and he disappeared for years in the closet. The other day he fell into my hands again and the desire for it awakened again. There was not much left in the flacon, so he ended up in the shopping basket again at the next opportunity. Since I was used to the long durability, I took the EdT and looked forward to putting it on again in the evening. The fragrance came out of its flacon in the usual beauty, but ....HALLO?.... after less than two hours he was completely gone! I tried it a few more times, pushed it on me, my skin, my hay fever nose.... But none of it, after about two hours he disappeared. Well, I thought. Try makes you cluck... I bought the EdP. Same procedure, but unfortunately similar effect?????.... Even on clothes from which he could hardly be removed in the 80s, unless they were burned;), he lasted only slightly longer! I think it's a shame because I still like Cristalle. For a fragrance of the Chanel brand, I find that somewhat questionable-above all, because it used to be possible after all. By the way, the same phenomenon also occurs with the offshoot Cristalle Eau Verte. Both are beautiful fragrances, but at least I can say that the original crystal is not as durable as it used to be. Neither as EdT nor as EdP
