Summary: A simple fragrance with a Chanel touch indeed, mostly a patchouli floral with a touch of pepper and musk. I can understand why you have to dare to wear it if you haven't tried something alike before. I wore it for years in the warm months.
Summary: "Tart" is a great way to describe this fragrance. Long-lasting, super tart, and a patchouli-bomb. It's a serious, adult, lady-like fragrance and very, very citrusy. Good for spring, summer, and fall. The earthiness of the patchouli keeps it from being too young or casual.
Summary: I love the muskiness of this fragrance. I don't normally like patchouli but Chanel Chance really got me. I'd wear it on balmy Bornean afternoons with a floral sundress and leather sandals. To me, Chance smells so exquisite, feminine and seductive, yet laid back and unpretentious!
Summary: I've always been addicted to Chanel fragrances and the love affair began in my teenage years. Chance by Chanel was the EDT I wore when I had my first kiss, drove for the first time, and graduated high school. My warmth caused it to emanate from my skin on my first day of college.
Summary: If Chance EDT is too tart and mish-mashed for your tastes, or if it just doesn't work with your chemistry, try the EDP version. There is a veil of powder and light sweetness in the EDP that tempers the patchouli and zippiness of the EDT. I hated the EDT but really enjoy the EDP!
