Humility is an adornment...
... my grandmother used to say.
And I agree with her on that.

That's why I really liked Gabrielle EdP.

She's the nice, neat girl next door - without any airs and graces.

Essence, on the other hand, seems to me like his older sister, who likes to dress up and play the first violin.

It is also very good for cleanliness, because it spreads a clear scent of soap - which makes a more propper impression, but does not necessarily appeal to me.

Probably her shiny house is meticulously maintained with Master Propper.
This picture also makes me uncomfortable.

There are still some fruits and blossoms cheating their way through the soap curtain - but I can't get rid of the house cleaning association.

Now I also have the catchy tune in my head:

Meister Propper loosens any dull dirt in the house -
he has everything mirrored
as on the very first day.

The lyrics were written by my ma's girlfriend - the music by Klaus Doldinger.

Of course mum and friend Gisela swore by Mr. Propper - and the two ladies would have liked Essence, too.

He's too immodest and too neat to me
I'd rather stay with the lovely little sister

Greatly helpful Review    20 a Chanel ... is a Chanel...
The big question is: to what extent is Gabrielle 2, as I want to call him of simplicity, different from Gabrielle 1?
And: is the whole flanking, also at Chanel, not hackneyed and superfluous?

I answer the second question first: can you see it that way? However, if you have a brand-related weakness as a fragrance collector like me at Chanel, that can make subjective sense.

Left wrist: Gabrielle 1, right: Gabrielle 2.

The fragrance pyramids are quite similar to each other whom wundert´s. And yet:

1: opens a bit more edgy and discreetly citric, that's not the case with 2: here all the flowers are mixed up in a smoother way at the push of a button - I definitely perceive ylang and a soft tuberose.
In addition there is a somewhat sweeter fruitiness than with the 1, which runs through the whole course without getting the upper hand.

After about 20 minutes 1 loses speed compared to 2, develops a ticking brighter, harsher and quieter.

The 2, on the other hand, remains fruity-floral. The base adds creaminess and supports the white-flower heart, which for me is the theme of the perfume.

Gabrielle 1 remains softer and fresher with regard to the flower theme, she also gets similar support from the basic fragrances.

Gabrielle 2 smells rounder and fuller overall without getting heavy. It is a perfume for all occasions, as they are so typical for Chanel.
Since it does not concern a monothematic Bumenduft, Tuberose - or Ylangempfindliche noses do not have to be afraid to be killed, because extremes gibt´s here not.
But you should like white flowering plants.

The shelf life is good.

"soapier", more intense and very feminine, this flanker could represent the contemporary classy woman.
