An unexpected floral fragrance in a round bottle. Unpredictable, in perpetual movement, CHANCE sweeps you into its whirlwind of happiness and fantasy. An olfactory encounter with chance.


In Parfum form, the fragrance is voluptuous and full of contrast, with notes of Pink Pepper, Jasmine and Amber of Patchouli. A composition in turn floral, spicy, sensual and gourmand, with heightened floral and vanilla notes.

Art Of Perfuming:

The Parfum is the most powerful, concentrated and long-lasting form of fragrance, with its own specific application. Gabrielle Chanel's advice was to apply it "wherever you would like to be kissed." Neck, wrist, décolleté… Dab a drop on your pulse points, wherever you can feel a heart beat. DESIGN Distinctive and immediately recognizable for its shape - the circle, the wheel of fortune and opportunity - CHANCE is the first Chanel fragrance to be held in a round bottle.

If I could give this 10 stars I would. This scent is so feminine and lush. It is clean, it is fresh, it is amazing. It's the only fragrance I have ever carried in my handbag. I get told often when out that I smell good. I even put this on before bed because I love smelling it on my sheets. It's not sweet or candy like, it's not overwhelming. It is truly floral without smelling like a florist. You must try this! CHANEL Chance Eau Tendre Eau De Toilette Spray

Love the Chance Eau de Parfum the most because it’s a musky floral and lasts long, very unique. The Eau de Toilette has citrus and pineapple notes which I don’t like cause I’m not a fan of citrus and the pineapple makes it’s a little more sweet than I would like. The most popular is Eau Tendre (pink color), which is a citrusy floral. I don’t love that one because as I said before I don’t really like citrus but def if you are looking into buying a Chanel Chance fragrance I wanna say there is probably a greater chance you’ll end up liking this one. I’ve worked in fragrances before and it was the second best selling fragrance in our store for women, only being out-ranked by Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle. Other than that if you want something more citrus fresh, go for Eau Fraiche (green one), and lastly Eau Vive (pinkish orange color I think?) which is more of a fruity fragrance because of its grapefruit note. Chanel has some good fragrances but Chance is great because it’s classy but subtle and like I said, it’s for everyone whereas there other fragrances like Gabrielle, Mademoiselle, Allure, and Number 5 are too strong or sweet for most people.

This will be my third time buying this perfume. I absolutely am in love and can’t live without it. This is what I call my signature scent. If you’re not sure about this because it is on the pricier side, go into Sephora and ask for a sample, they’ll be more than happy to give you some and o guarantee you’ll fall in love with it.

Side note my boyfriend knocked it off my counter by accident and it broke. Wasn’t too happy about that, but that just means I’ll be getting a brand new one here shortly.

This perfume is one of my favorites.  It is sophisticated, yet simple enough to wear every day if you'd like.  It is classic with a twist.  Not too strong, not too weak.  The description says it is floral, but I would not consider it floral.  I am not a fan of floral perfumes, so I wouldn't buy this if it was too flowery.  This perfume is great for all is fancy enough for formal events, but it is also good enough for just a night out.

This is by far my favorite Chanel perfume! I have repurchased is this scent 3 times! I get the most compliments on this particular one. My middle name is Chanel so I wanted to love ALL of the scents haha but sadly this one is the only one i enjoy haha. Well and maybe the green bottle one I forget the name 😕 I think I need to give the other ones another go just to mix it up a little but I always find myself going back to this one!❤❤ I will never get tired of this smell😳 See the difference in how much i use the chance over any others 😂

I’ve tried all the scents for the chance line and I’ve been very impressed with all of them. If you are trying to get into more high end brand I definitely recommend you getting the mini size of this perfume, it lasts a very long time. The scent is not way too strong and last me the entire day, usually 6-8 hours which is impressive for a women’s perfume. My favorite out of all is the pink scent!!

Do you want a perfume that you know you will get compliments on? Well this perfume is definitely it! I Will receive compliments even if it is the second day of wearing it. It has such a lovely fresh and innocent smell that is not overpowering at all, though it still makes its presence .  All of the Chance by Chanel are great, but this is one I cant stop Re-buying!

Chanel fragrances are known as signature, timeless and classic scents and Chance is not exception. The smell is light, floral and as feminine as a scent can get; flirty and fun! I do, however, find it to be more of a daytime scent. I would rank it as my second favorite Chan fragrance after Mademoiselle.
