|Chanel Chance Eau Tendre Hair Mist|
Some more Chanel releases - this time it's the turn of the Chanel Chance range of perfumes - April 19th sees the release of bigger bottles and matching deodorant and hair mist products to accompany the Chanel Chance Eau Tendre scent...
So - some information on this range of perfumes. There are three Chanel Chance scents; Chanel Chance, Chanel Chance Eau Fraîche, Chanel Chance Eau Tendre.
My personal least favourite of the three, the original Chanel Chance, is formulated with notes of jasmine, pink pepper and amber patcholi. It also features vanilla, white musk, iris and hyacinth and some citrus and vetiver to lift it out of all that muskiness and cloying sweetness and sickly heavy floral accords. Sorry, but that's just me personally (I can't handle these kind of scents, they give me a raging headache).
|Chanel Chance Eau Fraîche|
The second of the other two, Chanel Chance Eau Fraîche, is similar enough to the original Chance, but it substitutes the vanilla with a teak wood note which definitely takes it out of the "cloying" bracket for me and plonks it into the "almost-but-not-quite-zesty-enough" bracket. Otherwise, the ingredients are more or less the same as with Chanel Chance.

The third and final Chance scent, Chanel Chance Eau Tendre, is the only one of the three that I can personally wear. It further improves on the Chanel Chance Eau Fraîche (in my opinion) by removing the vanilla accord. It replaces the amber patchouli with amber, and the citron with grapefruit/quince. The ceder stays in but the vetiver is gone - I'd've liked to see that stay put, but then it might have unbalanced the floral with too much citrus fruit.
|New - Chance Eau Tendre Deodorant & Hair Mist|
Of the three, the Eau Tendre has been selected for some spring/summer upgrading, and features some Limited Edition releases to match to the scent:
- A hair mist - this is designed to match the Eau Tendre perfume and to lightly scent your hair without drying it. Coming in a 35ml spray bottle, this will be a LE product and will cost €40.
- A deodorant - again, designed to match the Eau Tendre perfume, I'm assuming that this will be a slightly-more-alcohol-and-slightly-less-perfume-based EDT spray. Coming in a 100ml bottle, costing €38, this will be permanent line I believe. I actually quite like to purchase a signature perfume line's matching deodorant as a really light alternative to an EDP/EDT for summer use (you know, for those countries where the sun shines and it's actually hot).
In addition, there will be some new LE sizes of EDT:
- Chance EDT 150ml €108.00
- Chance Eau Fraîche EDT 150ml €108.00
- Chance Eau Tendre EDT 150ml €108.00
These will all be available from 19th April on-counter.
