EDT vs. Eau de Parfum vs. Parfum - and the winner is...
In search of noble, woody fragrances I also stumbled across the Bleu de Chanel series, which have as a dominant ingredient a mix of sandalwood (warm, slightly almondy smell) and cedar (dark, slightly spicy). But which fragrance suits you and your intentions best? I will try to answer this question with a self-test. Have fun reading!

Fragrance Bleu de Chanel Eau de Toilette (7/10) // Bleu de Chanel Eau de Parfum (9/10) // Bleu de Chanel Parfum (8/10):
The champ in the opening is clearly for me the EDT. This is by the grapefruit and the citrus notes simply the first half hour very fresh, but then loses momentum and becomes very quickly only woody and I then perceive almost exclusively only the wood and no longer fresh. The perfume, on the other hand, is less fresh, but more woody and mysterious from the beginning. Keeps but strangely longer the freshness, as the EDT (for my nose) ie here you get even after several hours a mix of freshness and wood, which I find very nice.
The all-rounder is for me the *Eau de Parfum* which finds just the right mix of freshness and wood and maintains that until the very end. The winner!

SILLAGE EDT (6/10) // Eau de Parfum (7/10) // Parfum (5/10):
None of the blues are really projection beasts, but the Eau de Parfum is clearly ahead of the pack and just seems to have more potency than its counterparts. The EDT is quite ok in the opening, but quickly loses power due to the pure woodiness - the perfume has too much woodiness and is therefore right from the start quite close to the body. Winner is the Eau de Parfum!

DURABILITY EDT (6/10) // Eau de Parfum (8/10) // Parfum (6/10):
The EDT is with me on the skin about 4-6 hours well perceptible as well as similar to the perfume. The Eau de Parfum is also here the clear winner with about 7-8 h. It seems as if the balanced freshness would carry the wood longer or mutually conditioned.

To the CONCLUSION - which one fragrance I recommend to you and why?
Generally, all three fragrances contain for me the similar DNA from the mix freshness & wood. My impression is that here simply between the flankers the individual components were increased or decreased. The most versatile fragrance of all for me is clearly the Eau de Parfum - since it is simply wearable at any time of year and day & occasion. It also has the best sillage and durability in the TEst. There can be only one OR?

P.S.: If you liked this review, I am of course happy about a cup and / or a *helpful*. Thank you!

The Generic Masculinum
Why do you start your first comment here with such a polarizing scent?

The everyday fragrance par excellence, the epitome of wasted creativity, the toast of men's fragrances and founder of the equally beloved and notorious "blue wave"?

For the same reason for which I love this fragrance despite its, I say friendly "simplicity" and for me yet atypical lack of durability. It's too expensive, he doesn't even stay with me for 5 hours and you have to get very close to me to see it. It is terribly boring and banal according to my current standards... nothing special and yet... If I spray it on, if I smell the bottle, I have to smile involuntarily. Because, you know, He here.... He was my first.
I wouldn't be on Parfumo without Bleu de Chanel. I would probably wear Rossmann Parfum for a few pennies and be satisfied with Adidas or worse Axe. I would have had such a wonderful hobby gone through my rags.

My ex-girlfriend had infected me with it and told me how unbelievable it had smelled on someone else. After several repetitions on their part, this had got so stuck that I had to try it. I had never spent so much money on a fragrance before and was therefore in really high expectation.

When I sprayed it on for the first time, I already noticed that blue was something different from what I had known from self scenting before. This one felt kind of noble. I had no idea of notes, durability let alone what a Sillage was, but Bleu de Chanel smelled like a revelation to me at that time. My self-confidence swung to new heights, which was also caused by the fact that I received an exuberant compliment from a young lady at work when I was wearing it for the first time.

Nowadays I wear the blue one only rarely or on special occasions, it may be simple, but whether you like it or not, how mass compatible this fragrance is and especially why it is, Bleu de Chanel remains a guarantor for positive resonance.

Why always this Hate against shower gel scents
Chanel's flagship of the 2010's. New decade new fragrance preferences. While in the 80's one was still wearing perfumes that were herbily spicy in the 90's sweet fragrances à la Le Male, today it's the oh so hated "Fresh from the shower" (shower gel) fragrances".

The prelude is kept fresh. Pepper and mandarin dominate this happen. Later I add grapefruit and other fruity notes that I can't determine. Towards the end it becomes heavier by the sandalwood, but does not lose its freshness and timeless elegance. Sillage is in mediocrity, the shelf life but okay 7 hours you smell it.
Crowdpleaser par excellence. A perfume you can't go wrong with. Elegant yet seductive.

I know what you're thinking, how can he rate that lukewarm breeze so well, that young stupid guy? I always say you have to go with the times, back then there were outstanding fragrances but most of the fragrances of that time can be forgotten today, too old baked, too muggy, too monotonous. Doesn't mean there were bores back then!
That doesn't mean that there was more creativity back then, nor that there is a lack of creativity today. No. You just have to keep up with the times and Chanel does exactly that. Antaeus is a masterpiece that reflects the 80s. Loose-fitting sports jackets à la Sonny Crockett from Miami Vice, the shirt worn open up to the navel, including a bush of impenetrable black chest hair or just armpit hair à la Nena!

Every year we change ourselves, our habits change what was IN yesterday is OUT again today, and that's exactly how it is with fragrances. An Antaeus has no chance against a Bleu on today's market, nor would Bleu have had any chance against it if it had been published together with Antaeus in 1980.

If you're wondering why today only fresh from the shower is trendy, then look back at that time and look at the herbaceous heavyweights of the 80s.
He may not be perfect but for our time he is.

Btw. While writing this commentary I wore Anateus incredible exceptional perfume but absolutely no longer fits in our time

Chanels Basic Model
I recently took the liberty of making two purchases: a new car and a new everyday perfume. As I made my selection, the friendly saleswoman recommended the Chanel and Diors Sauvage. In the shop, the two were olfactory indistinguishable, even an outbreak in front of the door only mixed in some french fries with hot from the nearby snack stall.
So I chose the Sauvage by pure chance to give it back the next day. What a hideous soapy water, I apologize to all friends of this product for the hard word. But. Pure industrial soap!
Now it went to the Bleu de Chanel and yes. Yes! Relaxed. Slightly hypothermic. The quick citrus opening flies away and gives way to a pleasing, high-quality fresh scent. I do not want to repeat the ingredients again, the perfume as a whole looks rather synthetic, but not unpleasant. A slightly sporty note can be discerned.
What the car mentioned at the beginning has to do with it, I explain immediately: it is the simplest, entry-level motorized vehicle of a Bavarian manufacturer.
Of course they rush by, all the highly bred Czechs, French and Japanese, everyone has a light years better price-performance ratio, scream: look, I also have this Hofmeisterknick, also I have this edge and this button and also I am wild. And I am cheaper, faster, yes just better.
Well, the Bavarian in me would say (I am Saxon), but I sit quite well for that. Classic with rear drive, classic with beautiful lines, well dressed.
The Chanel is a classic basic model. Others can do many things better, louder, or because of me more unusual or cheaper.
Chanel's here. Unobtrusive, it accompanies solid through the day and presents quite good durability. Never intrusive, fine elegance is the new punk.
Who wants to hit on the proverbial shit, uses then evenly the Antaeus from the same house.

After many years of Gucci Guilty my personal judgement for the "little" Chanel is very good.

Reinventing the wheel
It has been several years since Chanel launched his top seller on the market. I was one of the ones who liked him from the beginning. Before the first bottle I allowed myself first only 12 samples a 2ml of this. Unfortunately he never really liked my girlfriend.

The start is citric, bitter and fresh as the rest of the course. I think it's super linear and good from start to finish. Except for the incense note, which in my opinion could have been used more gently to make it rounder and smoother. Basically I think it's ingenious how Chanel reinvents the wheel here. In my opinion, such aromatic citrus scents are not against it yet. Often copied, modified and rebuilt for good reason. That's just the DNA of today.

By the way, I don't know why people keep saying he's a suit scent. I think it's pretty universal. Maybe not necessarily on the beach in Cuba, but in his chic casual clothes he also goes for it. H+S are absolutely sufficient and pretty good for a fresh fragrance.

BdC will be part of the Acqua di Gio and Le Male series in the sense of eternal recurrence. But for good reason.

Sharp grapefruit, iso-e, and masculine woodsy notes. I respect it for being a trailblazer, but this is not my style. Great for summer.

I’m just not very fond of Bleu de Chanel. Perhaps the EDP is better but the EDT doesn’t do a lot for me. Smells kinda synthetic.

OK, I've changed my mind. I've tested once more and its citrus-spicy-smoky vibe seduced me. I'm wearing it and cannot take my nose off of it

While outclassed by the EDP, the EDT is still the fresh and woody smell that is easy to wear, and one people loved for over a decade.
