Chanel Chance Eau Tendre EDP

Chanel Chance Eau Tendre now comes in an EDP version. 

It's been awhile since I've smelled the EDT and I don't have a bottle here so I can't compare them but the key difference according to perfumer Olivier Polge is  the addition of rose. 

The new EDP is is a pretty , sparkling citrus floral with jasmine , grapefruit  and white musks. The rose here  is very present but light and clean .  I also get a large dose of grapefruit, and since I love that note it works for me, and there's no sharpness here. It's well blended in.  

Sillage here starts off strong but once it settles  and dries down it stays closer to the skin . This lasts long too,  and that should be an improvement over the EDT formulation.  It's not going to be an all day fragrance but will linger at least half the day , longer on clothing. 

Eau Tendre EDP is feminine, lighthearted and easy to wear . It doesn't reinvent the wheel but does makes for a nice daytime scent . 

Chanel  Chance Eau Tendre EDP is $135 for 3.4 oz and $ 105 for 1.7 oz
