Chance Eau Fraiche Eau de Parfum
They say: In 2002, luxury French brand Chanel released its first Chance fragrance. Since then, several elixirs have been added to the range, including the Chance Eau Fraiche, which added jasmine, citron and teak wood accord into the floral mix. Now, the fragrance story has expanded yet again to include the new Chance Eau Fraiche eau de parfum, which boasts the same “spontaneous” scent of the eau de toilette, with a lingering trail on skin.
We say: A pleasantly more robust evolution of the original scent, our tester appreciated the increased staying power on her skin. The citrus notes sparkle prominently, she reports, while the ambery teak and floral notes added depth.
