I am not the greatest reviewer for fragrances, though I buy a lot and I wear perfume everyday I don’t talk about it that much on my blog. One of my recent purchases was the exclusive Chanel Beige perfume which I am completely in love with. I was instantly drawn to its elegant packaging, and this is by far the most exquisite masterpiece of fragrance Chanel has ever made.
It has notes of white floral (Hawthorn, Freesia and Frangipani) with honey. Here is the description from Chanel which I really like:
“A stunning blend of white petals and yellow gold…in other words, a breath of beige.”
On me (I have quite a low body temperature), it smells clean; pretty and floral that is not overly sweet in a complex way. There are a gazillion of floral fragrances, but Chanel Beige is different from the norm. It has a refined elegance and smoothness that is unique enough to catch people’s attention. I am at this age where I stay away from anything that makes me smell like candies, teas or basils, and the Chanel Beige will probably be my signature scent for the next couple of years. It is an ‘expensive’ and classy scent, but on the other hand, it is soft, warm and modern. It is well suited to all occasions all year round. We often associate a fragrance with our fond memories, and I would say Chanel Beige reminds me of having myself wrapped in a cashmere throw, and sipping coffee on a beautiful street in Paris. Lasting power is about 8 hours on me.
Highly recommend! I bought mine at the Chanel Makeup Boutique, and it is exclusive to Chanel online.
