  • julien: Sorry but i really don’t like CHANCE.
    It is very disapointing to me and looks like COCO mademoiselle,in a charmless way.
    Pleasant,yes but not original and quality could have been better.
    Chanel is like many houses of perfumes:Trying to be more on commercial and less on creativity.
    What a pity…

  • Karin: Maybe I could wear it in edp. I can’t wear the edt. It is harsh and jarring, never softens. I like the notes they say they are emphasizing in the edp. I’ll give it a try. October 11, 2005 at 8:33am Reply

  • BoisdeJasmin: Julien, like you I was not particularly impressed with Chance, but I am going to test the EDP and see whether it is more interesting. I did like the hyacinth note in Chance, and I hope that it remains in the EDP. October 11, 2005 at 10:44am Reply

  • BoisdeJasmin: Karin, I keep hoping for the same thing. Let us see what the outcome will be like. I also understand that there is a parfum version as well, however I have not tried it. October 11, 2005 at 10:56am Reply

  • Marina: Like Karin, I found Chance (EDT) harsh and unwearable. But if they say that the EDP will be rounder and softer, that might be a big improvement. October 11, 2005 at 12:43pm Reply

  • BoisdeJasmin: M, I think that you are right. The softer and rounder is needed to make Chance more interesting for me. I am already looking forward to the release. October 11, 2005 at 12:48pm Reply

  • kristen: I have this secret suspicion that Chance came about by chance, in the lab. To me, it smells like someone poured equal parts Coco Mademoiselle and Allure into the same bottle. I was really looking forward to the launch of the original Chance, but once I smelled it, I was so disappointed! October 21, 2005 at 9:25pm Reply

  • BoisdeJasmin: I was disappointed as well, as it seemed redundant to me after Coco Mlle. Perhaps, the EDP will be better. I am an optimist. 🙂 October 21, 2005 at 10:00pm Reply
