Gaspard Ulliel starring a movie directed by Martin Scorsese. Sounds good, doesn’t it? Looks good too. A shame the perfume that it was made for is such a let down.
You would be hard pressed to find something more generic in a bottle bearing such a grand name and matching price point.
What do you think about Bleu de Chanel? Disappointment or misunderstood classic?
Birgit, I was one of he crowd, eargerly awaiting this new release. But upon first sniff, dissapointment set in – nothing new or exciting. I have tried several times since to like or even love this fragrance from a sample. It just falls flat and uninteresting. NOW, the bottle on the other hand is another story – big,broad,and the most striking blue ever. I want to love the fragrance to have the bottle, magnetic lid and amazing type face in mat silver and all. Sorry to say,
I still only have a sample – but still want the amazing bottle! You and I have discussed recent
bottling failures (Guerlain) – but this one, is amazing to me and a pleasure to hold, leave it to Chanel, Karl or someone with exquisite taste.
Speaking of Karl, thanks for the link to his bathroom – is it just me or were you severly dissapointed – if any one can have an amazing bathroom – it would be him!! This made
me wonder, I was in Monaco this week working and the Metropole Hotel is installing a
new small pool on the roof with “Pool decor” by Mr. Lagerfeld himself. Excuse me but what is
a pool decor? I thought a pool was a lovely body of water – maybe this is just a bad translation,
or a fancy way of saying deck and lounge chairs? Anyway – the pool should truly be a classic work – decor and all.
I love the bottle too.
My husband has a small one, since he is a fan of that genre and he is happy with Bleu.
Your work is something to be jealous of. Paris, Monte Carlo… they sound like very nice places to work. 😉
Love the ad. Love Gaspard. Hate Bleu de Chanel.
What really gets me about Bleu is that it you can smell the quality of the materials and it’s very well made but it is just so generic, dull and blah. It could have been another Allure Homme flanker.
This from the same house that made Egoiste and Antaeus? The mind boggles!
Oh and the tagline; “Be Unexpected” – Is that supposed to be ironic?!
Lol, it can really only be meant ironically, can’t it? 😉
The mind boggles! I adore that phrase! 🙂 Bleu is extremely unimaginative and that is sad…
I have a problem with Bleu in that I can’t remember it AT ALL. I’ve tried it over and over, each time having forgotten that I’d tried it before. So I try it again, sniff, think, “huh…”, then forget I’ve tried it, and the cycle repeats weeks later! I have no idea what this perfume smells like. So weird.
Exactly!!! That is the problem with Bleu, utter forgettabity. It just doesn’t stick!
I’m not even sure how I feel about that film, frankly… nice, I guess.
I remember being utterly bored by Bleu. A friend recently sent me another spray sample, and for days I was carrying it around, thinking I’d wear it sometime before leaving the office. I never did. I need to try it again. I just don’t feel compelled to waste even one evening on it! I promise, though, I’ll give it a fair shot again one of these days soon.
I tried it again yesterday, soooo boring. 😦
I think Bleu is underappreciated. It’s an extremely, extremely well done sport fragrance. I actually quite enjoy the warm drydown underneath the citrus top. I think this one will stick around – I imagine it becoming one of the sport fragrances that is appreciated by the next generation.
It is doubtlessly well done, but I find it has no defining character. It is one of many, many, many… for the price and for the house of Chanel it should be a bit more. But that is only my personal opinion. 🙂
