Last month saw Chanel release two new products to their fragrance lines and one re-release. These are limited editions; however, i do buy into limited editions; reason being is, i’ll only want them later on and refuse to pay ebay prices for them. Get them now before they’re gone!
I do already own this and have reviewed it in one of my favourites posts; however, as it is a re-release and i love it so much, it deserves another mention.
I really like the Chance Eau Fraîche fragrance. It’s ideal for summer with a citrus lemony, woody tone mixed with the signature Chance fragrance; so, i couldn’t resist owning this when it was released.
The main edition to this fragrance is lemon, cedar and water hyacinth and the vanilla has been removed. It still keeps the iris, pink pepper, patchouli, vetiver and musk though that makes it the signature Chance fragrance.
The New Releases
Chance Shimmering Body Cream.
The classic Chance fragrance enveloped in a rich body cream with ultra fine silver shimmer. This is going to be ideal if you have a tan or a natural olive tone because it really makes the skin glow. The body cream is very unassuming on first encounter. When you apply it, you think that it will not be that strong; however, once your body warms the cream up, the gorgeous fragrance is released. It isn’t too overpowering either.
Chanel also released a fabulous large sparkling pink body powder with puff in the Eau Tendre version of the fragrance. Unfortunately, i don’t like this fragrance too much. I have tried to like it but i really think the addition of pink grapefruit is slightly weird.
I know it’s each to their own when it comes to fragrances, so some of you will love it. If you do, then you are very lucky to have the edition of the body powder to this collection. I only wish they did it in the original Chance fragrance too.
Maybe next time, (hint to Chanel there)!

Are you lucky enough to have picked up one of these limited editions? Take care and i will see you all soon. ;-)
