Topic: New girl with a mystery

Hi everybody! I hope someone can help me hunt something down. Chanel connoisseurs, pay close attention:

Last night a client came in to my shop (I work at a tattoo studio). Her perfume was absolutely delicious. It was fresh and sparkling, yet lingering the way D&G Light Blue hangs around but it was more complex. I asked her what it was and she said it was Chanel No. 5. I looked at her bewildered and told her that couldn't possibly be (no. 5 smells horrible to me). She said it was definitely Chanel and that it came in a bottle with what looked like a molecule. She had a bit of a 'tude so I decided to leave her be and search for myself. I found a picture of a bottle with a swirly atom-like design but it was a compass and it was next to a box that said Chanel Chance BLACK. I thought I'd hit the jackpot! I've had a whiff of Chance before and I vaguely remember liking it quite a bit, and I'm aware that Chance has a few variations. However, the image search results led me to what looked like Eastern European bidding sites and then I found this link claiming that it's a fake: https://www.fragrantica.com/board/viewt … p?id=10477

Can anyone help me hunt down what this chick was wearing? [url=https://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/Chanel/Chance-Eau-de-Parfum-31351.html]

Re: New girl with a mystery

Hi and welcome!

That sounds really strange indeed! One of the russian sites offering this perfume claims it has been made in Hungary (on license) hmmm..

and how about this: http://znakkachestva.com.ua/image/cache/data/category-duhi-prod/chanel-candy-228x228.jpg 

http://znakkachestva.com.ua/image/cache/data/category-duhi-prod/chanel-chance-black-228x228.jpg  a real mystery! "Chanel Chance Black"



and this: (this is rather pathetic I think!)http://76.ucoz.ru/Chanel/1389363765.jpg 

I think the woman might have worn "Chanel Chance Black" - she might have bought it abroad.. her description of the box fits all right with the above

Kind regards

Re: New girl with a mystery

Right! She is a model and travels quite a bit so there's definitely the possibility that she bought a fake non-existent "Chanel". What's surprising about it is the quality and sillage. It lingered in the stairwell of our studio long after she was gone. I'm gonna try investigating a little further. My boss is friends with her so I put him on a mission to get me a pic of the bottle or something I can actually work with.

Re: New girl with a mystery

Well, if it isn't on the Chanel website it's a fake, then of course there are fakes that smells good, but I wouldn't go for them as they may contain bad/harmful ingredients.

My guess would be https://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.1483.jpg  Chanel Chance Eau Fraiche tester:
http://moskva.freeadsin.ru/content/root/users/2012/20121026/visitor/images/201210/f20121026230805-chanel-chance-eau-de-fraiche-100ml-tester-domwerk_0_b.jpg 

These are the notes in the shape of a molecule on the back of every Chance tester.

Re: New girl with a mystery

Wow, thank you! It is only the testers and is it only for Eau Fraiche?

Re: New girl with a mystery

You are welcome!

All Chance testers - not just Eau Fraiche's - have this design but not the regular bottles. My guess about Eau Fraiche is based on the similarity to Light Blue that you mentioned  glad

Re: New girl with a mystery

Excellent! I'm going to hit the mall tomorrow. Thanks so much!!!

Re: New girl with a mystery

Also smell test https://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.1360.jpg  Chanel Chanel N°5 Eau Premiere. It is a lot fresher than the original No.5 and one of my favorites 34

Southern fried,southern pride, my pledge of allegiance is..ROLL TIDE!!

Re: New girl with a mystery

It might also be https://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.8069.jpg  Chanel Chance Eau Tendre as many reviewers find it similar to Light Blue.

Trust your nose.

Re: New girl with a mystery

I think it may be https://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.31351.jpg Chanel Chance Eau de Parfum

Re: New girl with a mystery

If it's definitely no.5, have you tried https://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.31172.jpg Chanel Chanel No 5 Eau Premiere (2015) ? It's a fresher, lighter version of the original.

Scent-wise and going by the molecule thing, I'd also say she was wearing https://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.1483.jpg Chanel Chance Eau Fraiche from a tester bottle. It's similar to Light Blue, just -as you said- richer.

Wow I cannot believe these actually exist! I laughed so hard at seeing them. I just hope people don't actually pay "Chanel money" on these insane fakes.
