You know that feeling when you buy something new, or get given a gift, that you just don’t want to open and use because you feel it’s far too precious and special and new???
I do, often!
I know it’s complete silliness, but it comes from a place of not having had much growing up and wanting to save and savour all the gorgeous, glorious things that I do have now.
A few months back I was gifted a beautiful bottle of CHANEL fragrance. And it was exactly that. Something so beautiful to behold that I daren’t open it…
Until I realised that life is short and meant to be lived, and enjoyed. Every moment! And what is a more magical way to enjoy the moment and evoke memories (or create new ones) than with an exquisite scent?
Readers…. I opened it
My pretty pink perfume bottle of CHANEL Chance Eau Tendre Eau de Parfum
And what a delicate delight!
CHANEL’s Chance Eau Tendre EDP fragrance is a gentle interpretation of the original. A tender presence that is intensely feminine.
A new chance for the taking.
Launched in January 2019, this EDP is a reinterpreted version of Chance Eau Tendre EDT created by CHANEL nose Olivier Polge. This version is more sophisticated and floral than the first with a rounder fragrance that is more intense, more enveloping, more radiant.
This scent is confidently feminine with a floral heart of exotic jasmine absolute, essence of rose and creamy white musk notes to create a clean, crisp scent enveloped in a splash of grapefruit.
On first spray the fruity notes of grapefruit and quince are evident, before jasmine and rose essence waft through; the base note is white musk which balances the scent.
This Eau de Parfum goes the extra mile with a staying power of over 10 hours and the scent develops beautifully throughout the day – not too sweet, not too citrusy, not too floral, just right!
A round bottle symbolises soft and tender top notes that sweep you into a whirlwind of happiness and fantasy.
“It comes and goes, it never stays put… and you only have a few seconds to seize your chance. It is unpredictable and appears when you least expect it, but if you decide to seize it, anything is possible. “A chance came up, I seized it.” Mademoiselle Chanel knew that her real chance was the one of her own creation, a state of mind, a way of being”.
Who Wears Chanel Chance Eau Tendre Eau de Parfum?
A wonderful fresh fragrance that is suitable for everyone to wear everyday. This scent is delicate and poetic that evokes a joyful, youthful glow for everyone who wears it.

The woman who wears this scent is romantic, chic, elegant and intoxicating.
