The refined notes of Bleu de Chanel le Parfum 2018

In 2018, Olivier Polge decided to revisit the elegant masculine fragrance Bleu de Chanel by offering a new Eau de Parfum. If the new opus retains the olfactory signature of its elders, it nonetheless permeates a new scent that plays terribly on contrasts, between strength and delicacy. Here, sandalwood, native to New Caledonia, will blend with cedar wood and citrus fruits. The New Blue Perfume by Chanel now revolves around a serene power, more intense than ever. When the New Perfume came out, Olivier Polge explained to us “The difficulty was to find the right tone to express what a concentration of perfume for men could be.

It was necessary to avoid redoing what had existed by adding a megaphone. One can express intensity and refinement without an olfactory punch. This is why I wanted to give sandalwood more space, to let it melt with cedar and freshness in mind ”. The composition begins with the lively freshness of lemon, associated with lavender and peppery geranium. The heart oscillates between sandalwood and cedarwood. Finally, the base remains ultra sensual and combines labdanum, sandalwood and olibanum.

 

Entre force et raffinement, la fragrance masculine Bleu de Chanel reflète parfaitement l’homme moderne, charismatique. Ses déclinaisons sont tour à tour, plus légères, plus puissantes, mais toutes ont été réalisées avec des ingrédients nobles et particulièrement bien choisis.
