Chic is light, but elegant, coloured in red, of course, because this colour is very feminine; it is not virgin-like, but passionate. The real chic lies in constrasts: when the simple becomes complicated, because it encourages thinking and has a magical, influential power. For this purpose the simple and magical red colour was chosen, the shape of the bottle is simple, and the fragrance itself is a perfect balance between freshness and graceful sensuality. The top notes include Bulgarian rose and red freesia, the middle ones mandarin blossom and orange; the base voluptuous vanilla and white musk. Chic was created by Alberto Morillas and Jacques Cavallier.

Oh my.....this fragrence is HORRIBLE on my skin. I gagged when I first sprayed it and it's just continually gotten worse as it has dried. I obviously bought this blind. After reviewing all the reviews, I gave it a few more minutes to dry down....to get better.....But it did not. I am thinking it is the freesia that I am not liking. I definitely have a 1.7oz bottle to swap if interested.

3rd bottle - one of my favourite summerscents. Makes me happy and a feeling of totally sunshine around me. Longlasting on my skin. Very fresh flowernotes with some Musk, Vanilla and Sandalwood in base. A keeper.

3:e flaskan - en av mina favorit-sommardofter. Får mig att känna mig glad och ger en total känsla av solsken runt mig. Mycket hållbar på min hud. Otroligt fräscha blomnoter tillsammans med Musk, Vanilj och Sandelträ i basen. En självklar flaska för dofthyllan.

I like it! Bought it for my sister and today I wore it.. it's very nice!
It's white floral and in the dry down you can smell a little rose sneaking up the white flowes...
Don't know why I feel a subtle fruity something =)

this edp really is a potent floral juice, it's super strong, it's long lasting and above all, the fragrance gets more and more intense with greater silage after many hours.

it starts with a strong citrus-floral note, not just that, there is also spice and sharp green note, making it quite offensive in the beginning. yet, minutes after,
the fragrance develops to a dewy, fresh-floral scent.

a single spray either on your skin or dress will do just enough to make you lightly fragrant all day long.

I Loved the original CHIC back in 2005/6 when I first tried it. I really loved it. It was such a beautiful smell. I ordered it online and it smelled like bug repellent. Nothing like the softness I remembered. I ordered it again a while later thinking I probably got a bad bottle & that one was like the original. Yet, since every time I smell it at perfume shop or store, it's that same awful chemical scent. I keep on seeing it on sale everywhere but it's no longer that beautiful soft scent.
I can't believe they would drastically alter the scent of a perfume that much & not change the look or name.

It really surprises me to find such bad reviews on this perfume. I love it! And it doesn't feel "chemical" on me or my mum. It's really girly and fun! Really sexy, yet romantic. A sweet- floral scent, I think, mostly floral. It lasts really long on me (which i've found to be quite difficult). I put it on at night and the next day, I wake up feeling it on my hair and clothes.

I really hate this when I spray it on me. It's a little overpowering. I was imagining that people would be moving away from me. Once I was fixing my clothes and I happen to smell this on my shirt and I was like thinking... what scent was I wearing because it smells so wonderful! I guess this scent doesn't agree with my nose at first because it's so strong and once the dry down comes, I don't pick up the scent anymore. But it doesn't mean that others don't. This is not for a date night but great for independent and confident gals.

I could not remember the name Chic ;-) although I got some compliments wearing this parfume. I found a place online to buy it (it's not in stores here anymore) It's been at least 10 years ago since I wore this one. But I will buy it again soon! I can remember it's flowery but very very CHIC :-0

On my skin Chic Eau de Parfum starts a bit sharp and clean with a punch of pepper (not listed). To me Chic is very fresh and elegant. I don't like sugarsweet parfumes so this one is perfect for me. The flowernotes are wellmixed and I like it alot. The base gives soft female sandalwood and lovely musk. Nice every-day-scent.

På mig är Chic Eau de Parfum fräsch och lite skarp i starten med en rejäl dos peppar (inte med i doftpyramiden). Fräsch och elegant. Jag gillar inte sockersöta dofter så denna är nästan perfekt för mig. Blomnoterna är välbalanserade och jag gillar den mycket. Basen ger mjuk kvinnlig sandelträ och en ljuvlig dos musk. Härlig varje-dag-doft.

Here is a scent of a type I really like. To me it is the sweet scent of mango, which I love, and it keeps that way without much change through the drydown. It is vey similar, from my viewpoint, to F for fascinating, davidoff's Echo and valentina, but I find Chic even creamier than those three ones, a bit sweeter and also more gourmand, a feature I usually do not like, but in this case I think makes it absolutely delicious. Unfortunately this type of scent seems not to have very good projection and none of these perfumes is powerful .It is my favorite Carolina Herrera scent. I actually do not care for the others at all, although I do appreciate the huge silage and staying power of the first one.

I have been wearing this perfume for years and it never let's me down.
It's very fresh and has an understated elegance to it, it really is chic.
For a simple and sophisticated woman, that makes her presence felt in an non imposing way, Chic is really the perfect sent for a pleasant life. I recommend it highly!

Esto tiene un olor super extraño en mi opinion cosa que digo en el buen sentido de la palabra me recuerda a mi epoca de adolecente usaba esto a diario para ir a la escuela fue mi primer perfume de diseñador por eso le tengo un cariño muy especial pero creo que no era apropiado ni para mi edad ni para ir a clases ;)

This has a strange smell in my opinion super thing I say in the best sense of the word reminds me of my teenager used this time of day to go to school was my first perfume designer so I have a very special affection but I think it was appropriate for my age or even to go to school ;)

Yes Mrs.Carolina Hererra, you're allright, your 'Chic' is really chic. Fresh flowery and simple clean. Best choice for career women. Perfect for cold and sunny day, morning and evening. I like it. The bottle is simple but chic.. Yes, the name is chic, the fragrance is chic and the bottle is chic too..., so ladies..try it now!

I usually like sheer white florals or citrus fresh elegant florals, but Chic by Carolina Herrera is totally the opposite.

The opening opens up with a fresh juicy lemon with a little bit of powdery detergent and some other rather gloomy flowers. It is hard for me to notice any other olfactory notes in this fragrance.

After the lemon fades away, the white florals come up and I feel like I'm being washed with huge amounts of lemon-smelling detergent. Unfortunately this detergent lemon speeds everything up and brings the amber into play that ruins the whole fragrance.

As for the lasting power, at the first few hours it is very strong but fades away really quick and I am left with a musky detergent with the leftovers of the rotten, trashy lemon.

The lasting power coupled with the detergent amber-musk and the horrible lemon has unfortunately marred Chic by Carolina Herrera for me.

A Chic woman in my opinion works around wearing a good Chanel quilted bag, makeup from Dior and high heels from Gucci. It definitely is not a woman bathing with lemon detergent instead of soap like Chic by Carolina Herrera.

I bought it again but,contrary to my expectations,this had nothing to do with the first CHIC frag I'd bought it in 2002.It must have been reformulated so it smelled like chemical.unlike the beautiful freesia essence from the first edition.What a pity!

L'ho molto amato e lo definirei frizzante, non come i soliti agrumati grazie ai sentori floreali ben bilanciati da creare un giusto grado di acidità.
In italia è fuori produzione.
Prezzo conveniente per un sillage di una giornata intera. Ne ho nostalgia, ogni tanto sniffo la mia bottiglina quasi finita.

As far as I know it's not discontinued. It's still in the stores here.

A friend gave me her bottle because she didn't want it anymore. It had something like a nice orange note. But then again it had nothing special. It's a nice daytime or office scent, because it's not strong. On my skin it was too drugstore like. I passed it on too.

One of those that's not like anything else. I look at the ingredients of these things and get very confused sometimes. I can't smell any of its alledged individual parts, to me it smells like going on holiday. It's a kind of hot smell, the beach is there somehow, the hotel room, clothes after you've worn them to the beach, sea and suncream and sand and a sweaty but not unpleasant hug. I'm not doing this justice. It's unique and sticks in your brain but in a slightly uneasy way like a dream. Wonderful stuff. LT calls this a tawdrey fruity floral. Really can't see that at all I'm afraid. Has he fallen out personally with Carolina Herrera? That's the only way I can account for it.

Definitely, a scent for spring. I usually don't like these kind of ingredients but, this time, something caught me off-guard. It must be the red freesia...Anyway, I will wear it the whole spring because I can feel the sun on my skin even if it's a cloudy day. Should I mention that my 7-year old son loves it? Another good reason to have it, ladies!

I used to love and wear this fragrance for quite a while but unfortunately it no longer smells the same. Something must have changed in the formula. I even compared the older bottle with the new one and it smells completely different, like a totally different perfume! It used to be fresh and sexy at the same time, now it just smells cheap and overly floral. There's no trace of white musk or any of the middle or base notes. Its lasting power is too weak and disappears in about an hour.
Why did they keep the same name and bottle design when the fragrance has changed? (only the box is different)

Wrrr... what can i say?
I hate this frag. Really hate. I know it has some pretty tones of rose (althrough `bulgarian` is not my fave kind of that flower) but for god's sake - why it's so `spray_for_bug` product?
I can't stand this cold, unpleasent smell. I feel totally not in my body when i was wearing it.
Saying the truth, besides CH Herrera makes all questionable scents...

I love my white florals, but only when they've been composed well, which is quite rare unfortunately.

I really wanted Chic to be amazing. I wanted a creamy, modern white floral with a feminine touch. Unfortunately Chic didn't meet my expectations.

Although not listed here, there is a very strong lemon note throughout the composition that tends to smoother the jasmine, tuberose, freesia and vanilla.

The opening is very sharp, acidic and almost plasticy. When it dries down it is nothing spectacular. A simple, rather generic white floral in my opinion, with a strange, lemon detergent finish.

Some may love this scent, however I have experienced better white florals which have marred Chic by Carolina Herrera for me. Unfortunately I find this fragrance cheap and predictable.

The lasting power is so-so. In terms of sillage, it is very strong for the first few hours, however shortly after the scent is barely detectable. Chic just didn't live up to my special expectations.

It's fresh and citrusy when it starts then it gets more floral and warmer and warmer with tones of beautiful roses! Finally, it calms down into a slightly sweet, slightly green and creamy-rosy scent. Can be girlish, yes, but can also be very seductive when you want to have a soft and light perfume on. Nothing REALLY special, but absolutely feminine. I would say its idea is a bit similar to Miracle So Magic's, but this one is more elegant and just a little deeper, more mature. If you say it's also similar to Arden's Ardenbeauty, you're right, but Ardenbeauty is sharper, greener and more edgy. Anyway, Chic is a beautiful perfume for summer, or for everyday, and can be worn at any age!

Citrus fresh opening... and then... nothing, nothing and even more nothing. I can hardly smell anything!

But after about two hours it surprice me with a pretty, creamy and lovely basenote that seem to come from nowhere.

Maybe nice with the right chemistry, but unfortunatly not for me. Pretty on my daughter tough, and also smellable.

From a design perspective the bottle, name & colour choice really do not fit the scent that is lingering on my wrist.

Red should be a voluptous, punchy, hot, dangerously sexy woman. The bottle is minimalisitic to the point of actually being boring, too safe. Chic - fashionable & elegant? Well....

It is an intimate, light, girly-floral scent. I really smell rose & freesia, orange blossom, with a some-what synthetic sweet, vanilla undertone. It has a slight citrussy quality & is pleasantly fresh - the smell you get as a young woman steps out of shower, pale pink & curvy.

As it develops, it just gets sweeter on me, with very little depth coming through, which is a great disappointment, as I love how fragrances play on the skin.

If you love safe, flirty, girly-nonsense, sunshine-sweet florals, you'll eat this up. But, IMO, it really lacks substance & seems cheaper than its pricetag.

I really like this fragrance. I first smelled it in 2002, when it first came out on a friend and I was allured by the zingy, vibrant perfume she was wearing. Years later, I still thought about it and purchased it. Yes, this perfume is young, lively, and effervescent in quality. It is sweet and fresh, perfect for spring.

Opens up with an alcohol cloud blast, and then the freesia scent jumps out at you. I didn't like the alcohol start one bit. It is growing on me the more I wear it though. It has a warm, clean, and kind of girlish scent to it. If you're a freesia fan then I'm guessing you might like it, but I would sample it first to be on the safe side. :)

Editing to say the alcohol smell never completely went away. It stayed in the background, and I felt like I could even taste it every now and then.. eww! I kept it on for 2 hours and then had to wash it off.
