A surprising scent memory
This perfume has been a surprise and a very interesting revelation.
The opening is sharp citrusy and fresh, but after five -or-so minutes the flowers start to bloom up and tame the citrus, which however, still reminds me slightly of toilet refreshener. By the 20 minutes mark that has faded out. It became much more Chanel like, with elegant aldehydes and clean flowers. At that point I have decided it was not for me, but eventually found myself coming back to it again and again. It reminded me of something... Something nice... What was it?
And then it has downed on me and left me wondering how our brain imprints on certain smells and even if we never smell them again for ages, it stays there in our memory, latent but alive. It´s quite remarkable. My daughter was born in Spain, and apparently it is costumary there to give out the baby perfumed when leaving the hospital. The perfume they used is called Nenuco, and it was a citrusy flower scent, special for babies. It was unexpected for me back then, quite a bit of culture shock too, but they didn´t ask me, so there it was, my Nenuco scented baby. When we got home I found that I somehow imprinted on that smell and eventually had to buy it, eventhough I was totally against the idea of putting perfume on babies, but at that point I found I needed it for a little while. (Good, albeit a little forced marketing, I suppose) I bought a bottle - they are quite inexpensive and are sold in very simple plastic bottles. This is what Chanel Riviera reminds me of. The classic Nenuco. My freshly baked newborn daughter. (She´s 17 by now.) That is why I found it almost addictive while testing. I´m not sure how much my scent memory is cheating on me here, but next time I´m in Spain I plan to buy a bottle of nenuco and compare these two again.

Gentle arrogance
You know that Chanel feeling?
Somehow Chanel scents just make me feel different... It's like there's a substance in every Chanel fragrance that makes you feel self-confident and lets you float above things. Between dreaming, self-acceptance and arrogance
Riviera is no exception. Clean, light, unisex and yet very creative, he comes along without having to provoke with anything other than his overbearing manner.

In general it is more on the feminine side, but would be wearable for men in summer without any problems.

A very powdery citric start that slowly becomes more floral without really changing much of its DNA. Sympathetic, intelligent and dignified.

Lasts on me about 6+ hours, at 4 hours of tidy but never heavy or overloaded sillage.

If a woman wore this and came near me, I'd go absolutely crazy. Cuddly scent!

The bottle and spray head are all Chanel: simple, elegant and with a dense and powerful mist

Just wear it for a week.
Day 1: It's too old school and a common citrus smell. I was completely disappointed.

Day 2: Well, it's comfortable anyway.

Day 3: Good sunshine pouring through the window. It must be spring now.

Day 4: I think it is the smell I had when I was young.

Day 5: I love the creamy side in it.

Day 6: I just ordered 2 backup bottles.

Exclusive toilet cleaner
Unfortunately this smell smells like an exclusive toilet cleaner for me or also at me. A very citric tuft that for me belongs less to the skin and more to the bathroom... That's too bad I was looking forward to a new Chanel scent

The Kiss
The light, gentle sound of the sea from far away makes him open his eyelids.

A beautiful, awakening, very brightly bitter, sweet, fruity, tenderly citric note flows through his slowly awakening spirits.

An enjoyable stretching and jerking gives him the necessary clarity.

The smell that you knew he loved so much wrapped itself around his body like a velvet veil.

A view from the open panorama window - And there she stood!

Leaned against one of the most beautiful white marble columns in the world, it looks out to sea.

Slightly wavy, still slightly damp dark blond hair lies on her shoulders.

Velvety eggshell-coloured silk surrounds her body, which exudes a wonderful feminine floral touch and lends her a flattering aura.

It goes towards you and is enveloped by a wonderful delicate, captivating sweet, fine powdery floral note.

This clear and pure fragrance hides very fine, freshly tart nuances and seems incredibly transparent, as if you could reach through it.

Standing directly behind her he feels an undreamt-of lightness and contentment and this indescribable feeling of happiness.

She tilted her head back a tiny bit and finally turned to him.

Their looks meet.

A fine, almost fragile, balsamic, creamy and smooth breeze combines both with a passionate kiss.

In total, the fragrance lasts 8 hours on my skin.

The Sillage is conceived from the outset in such a way that one is clearly noticed at a whole arm's length and this is maintained also 3.5 hours in such a way, before it minimizes itself in quiet steps up to the conclusion of the smell
I would like to express my sincere thanks to our perfume "SolisOccasum" for the bottling.

The Year of the Orange
Chanel didn't disappoint me again, but he didn't surprise me either. Even if Shalimar Souffle d'oranger has already played the orange theme skilfully, I won't let anything come to the Paris Riviera. Pleasantly tangy, it refreshes with fresh greenish notes of mandarin orange, which in a way resemble the orange sanguine, but become creamier and softer over time. The Sillage is significantly better than e.g. an Aqua Allegoria, the shelf life as well. Outsiders (foreigners of perfume) perceive him clearly and benevolently.
After 2+ hours, a light, spicy herbaceous note is added, which strikes me very positively. Paris-Riviera has not reinvented the fragrance wheel, but is still a useful refresher, unpretentious and crowdpleasing. Small price (for Chanel), but big impact. The sprayer is only a bit hesitant, so you have to step on the gas several times. Nevertheless: Recommendation! For m/w/d, large and small.
