On days like these
On days like these
the term mainstream loses its meaning
because you don't smell fragrances on every corner anymore.
I've already noticed
that I can stand sweet things again But today, with this fragrance,
i've become really aware of it.
Just 1.5 years ago, I probably would have dismissed it
as one of many,
he would have had something that bugged me.
But now there is nothing there that bugs me.
It's a beautiful fragrance,
with style, elegance, restraint, freshness.
Pleasant to wear at any time.

On days like these,
when it's raining outside,
the freshness
reminds me (as a shower gel vibe, I don't feel that way)
and the wonderful fruits
of sunshine and warmth,
and make the day a little brighter,

The creamy warm base
and a little tonka
fill the fragrance, and thus probably also its wearer,
with charm.
He is masculine,
but also for women well wearable.
Here he would probably fit into the Buisiness,
or to sporty ladies.

On days like these
the world outside has become quieter.
The deceleration is good for the fragrances.
On days like tomorrow
the world outside will be louder again it will be quieter here.
I can already tell.
And I'll miss the days of today.

Have I been converted? Perhaps...
...yes, dear ones. My first comment on this platform was about Layton from PDM. A without doubt very nischiger smell...

All in all, I have to say that it was fragrances like frankincense, myrrh, tobacco, rum, leather and oud that drove me crazy about perfume. The clear, transparent presentation of individual fragrances and the bottle design convinced me.

Then I ordered an incredible number of samples and fillings of the great niche fragrances with the components mentioned.
I have felt every second weekend in the Oberpollinger stood and counted, where I like what can pay and buy to be able to put together a small but fine collection.

But what happened...
...I didn't get any compliments, even worse, many fragrances (Layton, Herod, Pegasus, Black Afgano, Absinthe, Terroni, Tobacco Oud Intense, Bleu Turquoise, Rahaba, Tuscan Leather, Aventus, Unum, Rudis) became either after a few hours simply too one-dimensional or after several days simply tired of me and "exhausting"...

I had to keep looking.

Gave me (unintentionally) into the section of the so-called designers...
"But well..." I figured, "...a good scent, is a good scent, no matter who created it...".

I quickly came across Bleu de Chanel.
The first splash (now I only test on my own skin): warm, citric, sour, tangerine, fresh, well-groomed.
It may be due to the season, or the small disappointment of the niche fragrances, but I was thrilled.
After 2 hours the Sillage loses much of its suction power and the mandarin is "coated" with a light-coloured wood. Meanwhile I like the "Saubermann/Barbrier" fragrances more and more and I wonder what I should wear in winter...

Despite everything, the well-kept, shower gel vibe remains, which many here criticize as boring.
But I see in him a kind of salvation.
No more eccentricity and played individuality, towards the simply "portable".

The bottle design pleases, note 2-, the magenitic lid is a great gimmick that flatters price.

In spite of all the laughter, I always have to carry a bottle with me to spray every three hours after. Because in one point the scent fails (where I still see niche scents in front)...the performance.

A new beginning with a different sign
My wife gave me the name brother EdT for Christmas 2010. It was my first bottle, a little nobler. The magnetic lid enchanted me and I found the scent of Chanel - which is a luxury fashion house - just special cream as a matter of principle.
But now it happened that I developed a greater and greater aversion to the fragrance after a few months as the wearing time of the fragrance increased. It's hard for me to describe this dislike. For me there was a certain oppressive warmth or stuffness that made me unable to bear and wear BdC EdT any longer.
This sense of smell resonates with almost all Chanel men's fragrances for me. In a statement I once called this self-smell Chanelin. The only exception for me is Chanel's Allure Homme Edition Blanche. Until now.
Recently I bought a day cream in a perfumery (yes, even we gentlemen use Ü39 more than Nivea now) and the nice lady apologized that she only had one kind of samples left to give me. I read only Chanel and Bleu and was not very enthusiastic. But I could give the sample to a colleague.

I wasn't aware before that there was a new derivative of Bleu in 2014 and that it was launched on the market with the addition of Eau de Parfum. I was sure that the difference to the EdT would not be big, but I sprayed the sample on myself. Although the Chanelin can be guessed, the so frowned upon stuffness shines here with absence. Yes, in my nose the two scents are quite similar, but the EdP is a bit more light-footed and completely without the warmth that makes breathing difficult at some point. Well, I was thrilled. I announced my new discovery and my wife, herself a large Chanel fragrance wearer (I could only perceive Chanelin very weakly in women's fragrances), gave me a small bottle of the fragrance for my wedding day last Friday.
I'm really happy about my rediscovery and wore BdC yesterday during our morning grocery shopping and sprayed again as we spent some time in a furniture store near Hamburg in the afternoon (by the way there were 40% on many parts :-)). That was a mistake. I was of the opinion that the scent had vanished after a few hours, only because of that I added more. My wife confirmed several times in the afternoon, in the stuffy furniture store, without being asked, that I was somewhat "over-perfumed". This means that the dear Bleu likes to make himself scarce in his own nose, while he still projects beautifully further into other noses. I'll have to remember :-)

I'm glad about the rediscovery, because I finally like it very much in this recipe again.

Thanks for reading.

The beginning
"Are you looking for something in particular?"

The friendly employee in the perfumery, who almost looked at me pitifully, had obviously noticed that the decision was difficult for me. No wonder, I was completely inexperienced and had no idea of various scent compositions, nor did I know what a so-called silage is.

"Hello? Looking for something in particular?"

After the second try, I finally noticed her. I told her I don't really know what it's gonna be at all.

I'd never been in the fragrance business before. Actually, it was just a pastime that led me here.

It didn't take long and I got a handful of advice and scent tips. However, none of the scents presented really appealed to me. Probably for this very reason I have never been to a facility like this before.

I asked myself the question that was decisive: was there a fragrance at all that I could particularly like?

"Well, I'm sure there's something else for you to see."

With a smile on her face, the salesgirl went to the next customer.

Suddenly I saw a separately placed "bottle" on a small table. At that time I would have looked at everyone crooked who had corrected me with the words "This is called a bottle".

Somehow I liked this simple optics.
A deep blue. Discreet but still unmistakable.

All right, I figured... One more try still.

Immediately after the first spray I was surrounded by a hitherto unknown feeling. I didn't even know what to think at first, but then I tried to concentrate and took a scent that I had never perceived before.

This freshness was simply overwhelming. The perfume had a noble and elegant fragrance. After a while I had the feeling to hear something woody as well. Even 8 hours later the fragrance was still present.

Never before had I been enthusiastic about anything like it. Until now.

Something had changed in my life that day. My interest in fragrances was aroused.

Today I look at my collection and have to smile every time I look in the direction of the perfume that started it all.

There's nothing to see here. Please move along
This fragrance has been floating around the internet for the last few years, as in my perception, very few have. It has now been sold so many times and can be found in almost every men's collection. Led by the big perfume minfluencers in the form of Jeremy or Gent Scents ect, it has been sold almost everywhere as the classic men's fragrance and has been one of the most popular fragrances ever since, which certainly makes it uninteresting to many. Unique is something else, anyway. Extravagant is also something else and there are clearly more complicated, elaborate and luxurious fragrances on this planet. It's best to sell the fragrance again and look for something else that's perhaps not so hackneyed and that will make you stand out more. It's best not to talk about it anymore and let the grass grow over it. Here there is fortunately the souk, where you can sell it comfortably at fair prices.
Best to the user Roadrunner, because as the foxes among you could surely guess from the above rating, I love this fragrance. :-)

Anyway, it does not bother me at all that he is so popular, because I can understand that 100%. I've been wearing it for 2 years now and just love everything about it. I had originally fallen in love with the opening of the Eau de Toiletten at the big D. That pink pepper, bergamot and that slight tart, peppery background noise has my synapses exploding with joy. The Eau de Parfum came as a sample directly afterwards, because I really wanted to test it, especially with regard to the performance. I should know the smell, I thought. There, too, I was wrong. The Eau de Parfum is sweeter, more sensual, that background noise is gone. Vanilla and tonka bean must have found the right satellite settings here. Sandalwood and the other woody notes round out the sharp edges of the eau de toilette here, making it a more harmonious scent overall than its bolder brother.

There are also differences here in terms of performance. Due to the sweetness of the heart and base notes, the EdP lasts a little longer, although this is not a huge difference here. He acts more elegant and potent than the EdT and that's what finally made him my signature fragrance. This gentleman here goes just always and everywhere. In summer, in winter, on a date, while shopping, at the job interview, because he is very restrained and knows how to please. The reactions of the women have almost always been the same. From "oh, you smell good" to light lip nibbling to melting eye rolls, everything has been there so far.

Here, the Mr. Polge has created an insanely easy to love, sensual, fruity, Immergeher, which ( knock on wood that he is not even discontinued at some point ) will always remain in my collection and will probably remain my signature scent for now. Never say never, but with this scent, there's no need to worry. No matter where it goes, no matter the weather, just put it on and smell good. I love this scent.

Unlike a lot of fragrances that I like right off the bat, I can't get sick of smelling it. After my blog entry, I had to dedicate him even a comment, because no fragrance has ever managed to pull me so under his spell as it has done Bleu de Chanel. No Creed or Parfums de Marly fragrance has managed that so far, even though I haven't tested them all yet, but maybe that's just due to my amateur nose and I just don't understand and appreciate these complex, sometimes exotic scents. But nonetheless, I had to write this down now because it just deserves it.

Mr. Polge, thank you so much for this perfume.

The father of blue scents. Citrusy, fruity with woody notes. Fresh, aromatic and well blended. It's a pleasant scent for the masses.

2023 batch, absolutely abysmal performance. 2 hours of longevity…returning my bottle today, sad to see how badly this has been reformulated.
