Nope, this is not about bruises! The black is for the ladies (and is already out). The blue is for the gents (and is out this week)...
Chanel Coco Noir
|Chanel Coco Noir - the family!|
Already available since the 23rd of August, Chanel have released two new products in the Chanel Coco Noir scent line.
With its top note of bergamot, a floral heart of rose and geranium rose leaf, and Oriental base notes centered round patchouli and tonka bean. Chanel Coco Noir Eau de Parfum (EDP) is already available as a 35 ml spray.
To help prolong the scent on the skin, a new, ultra-light foaming shower gel, which develops a fine and creamy lather, is introduced, costing €44.00 for 200ml.
|The new moisturising body lotion|
A new moisturising body lotion also makes an appearance, leaving the skin soft and delicately scented with the Coco Noir fragrance, and costing €52.00 for 200ml.
Personally, Chanel Coco Noir is too heady for my liking, however I do love when a scent has a whole family - EDT, EDP, moisturiser, shower gel, deodorant... you can layer your scents, every step of the way, and completely envelop yourself in the same, non-clashing scent, that lasts all day long. Or you can use just the shower gel and moisturiser for a more subtle version of the same fragrance. I have a few (precious few!) perfumes for which I have shower gels, moisturisers and deodorants, along with EDT/EDP and I love using using them. Sadly, scents no longer seem come in a body powder option any more, which is a shame, but I guess that's seen as old-fashioned these days :-)
Bleu de Chanel

(aka: the eye candy - Égérie Gaspard Ulliel)
In a similar vein, and available on the 6th of September, and for the guys this time, Chanel are introducing an entirely new product and a LE size of EDT to the existing Bleu de Chanel line.
Featuring notes of pink pepper, citrus accord, vetiver grapefruit, cedar, frankincense, ginger, sandalwood, the Bleu de Chanel range is already way ahead in the family stakes :-) and contains the following four products:
- 100ml Aftershave Lotion
- 90ml Aftershave Balm
- 200ml Shower Gel
- 100ml Deodorant Spray
Now, new for 2013, the 75ml Deodorant Stick (€29) joins the product line-up.
Also, a limited edition EDT is also available in a 300ml spray bottle (€190), this complements the four existing EDT sizes (50ml, 100ml and 150ml spray bottles and a 20ml travel spray with two refills). I love this scent, it's very masculine, and features a lot of the notes I love in a fragrance.
Look to your Chanel counter. All products (other than the Bleu de Chanel LE EDT size) are new/permanent range.
