Everything You Need To Know About Chanel Chance Perfume Before Buying

Chanel Chance perfume collection is a super popular perfume collection that you can find at any retail store or a mall that has Chanel Perfume spots. It is readily available anywhere online as well.

It is widely loved and used by Chanel lovers. Chanel Chance perfume line has some great entry perfumes, because the scents are simple and prices are friendly, as far as Chanel goes.

The Chanel Chance perfume collection is not complicated, the scents are all rather simple, even a bit similar among themselves.

As entry perfumes, the Chance collection does a great job in serving these elegant, affordable, and versatile options for all of us.

In the Chance collection, you will find 4 versions: Chance, Chance Eau Fraiche, Chance Eau Tendre and Chance Eau Vive.

Let’s check each of these out and talk about value, price and where to score them.

The rankings below is from the most recommended to the least.

I test perfumes by wearing them myself over decades of obsessing with perfumes.

Rankings are based on scent, occasions, projection and lasting power. 

I can usually find these perfumes online for half off and have linked cheaper options and dupe options under each recommendation.

#1 Chanel Chance - Eau Tendre

Chanel Chance Eau Tendre perfume is my favourite out of the Chance collection. It is simply the sweeter version of Chance original. 

It is sweet with some depth to it. Its sweetness isn’t just floral or fruity, it has some woody and musky undertones. The main note at open is a strong jasmine scent. As it dries down, you start getting grapefruit, *very* light rose and woodsy scents.

Chance Eau Tendre is welcoming, clean, and pleasing to most people. Every man I’ve asked about the Chance collection universally voted this as the most pleasing even though it’s not the sweetest option. 

You can literally wear Chance Eau Tendre perfume *anywhere*. It is so sweet and cute that it’s a fantastic date night perfume. It is not too rich in its sweetness, when you are out and about during the day, it’s a cute perfume to wear.

Chanel Chance Eau Tendre inherits Chance original’s woodsy backbone, and it is clean cut, so it is appropriate for an office environment as well.

IMO, my only reservation is I’d wear a more complex perfume for a heavyweight evening event like a gala. Otherwise, this is for ALL occasions.

Chance Eau Tendre is a clean and uncomplicated perfume in true Chanel fashion. At the same time, it’s not that hard to find dupes that smell similar.

I’ve linked some dupe options throughout this review. Compared to its cheaper dupes, I think Chance Eau Tendre is a step up in elegance and composition. 

Chanle Chance Eau Tendre is an EDP. It is priced at $138 USD per 3.4 oz bottle.

#2 Chanel Chance - The Original

Chanel Chance the original is a classic! It’s been standing tall and proud since 2003. It is one of the more unique and complex scents among Chanel fragrances that you can get at most retail stores. 

It opens with patchouli and jasmine and dries down with vanilla and pink pepper. It is feminine, and its depth comes from pink pepper and *very* light musk. 

Chanel Chance the original is a clean perfume, with some depth. The depth is not that deep, because it’s not sustained by musk or wood-like scents, so think of it like a light hearted depth. 

It is a more serious option compared to the Chance Eau Tendre. It is not as easy going or as light hearted as Eau Tendre. Especially when it dries down, the pink pepper scent comes forward a lot more, and it becomes almost a rather serious perfume that you imagine your nice boss would wear.

Without a doubt, Chanel Chance is a great fragrance for daytime, the office, or any business context.

Chanel Chance could be used as a date night perfume. Personally if I have to wear Chanel Chance on a date, I would mix it with another sweeter perfume like Chance Eau Vive mentioned below.

Chance is an all-season fragrance. It’s perfect for the fall, because it has a relatively strong projection. I personally wouldn’t recommend it for the summer, because it seems too heavy for me.

If you like Chance the original and want a lighter option for the summer, a better option IMO is the Chance Eau Fraiche mentioned below. 

Chanle Chance original is an EDP. It is priced at $138 USD per 3.4 oz bottle.

#3 Chanel Chance - Eau Vive

Chanel Chance Eau Vive is feminine and fruity fragrance. It is sweet, so full of jasmine, vanilla and grapefruit peel’s zest.

The easiest way is to think of it as a more zesty version of Chance Eau Tendre. It is pretty much the same with Chance Eau Tendre, except with a hint of grapefruit peel’s zest!

Although Chance Eau Vive is an EDT, it has as strong of a projection as Chance Eau Tendre, which is an EDP! Another brownie point! 

The grapefruit peel’s zest really makes a big difference here. It helps this EDT get a bigger projection at open. As it dries down, the zest scent gets stronger, and comes forward equally with its main jasmine note.

The zest makes it a fun fragrance as its name suggests, and less of that elegant or buttoned-up stereotype.

It would be a perfect summer fragrance or wear it for outdoor or daytime activities. It screams liveliness and fun. It cheers me up every time I spray this. The sweetness is just right, you cannot miss the femininity in it.

It would be a great perfume for lunch dates or maybe even the office. 

The lasting power is quite average on this collection on my skin. It lasts around 3 hours with this one, however it does help to have the zest hint in it. 

This EDT is at a great price of only $115 USD per 3.4 oz bottle.

#4 Chanel Chance - Eau Fraiche

Chance Eau Fraiche is a lighter and greener version of the original Chance EDP.

It’s worth mentioning that the notes are slightly different from the original Chance EDP. Chance Eau Fraiche has more green apple and lime notes in it, and no pink pepper.

So it is not only lighter, but also doesn’t have depth underneath its top fruity and vanilla notes. 

Chance Eau Fraiche would be a great daytime perfume. It reminds me a lot of Chanel’s Gabrielle, a perfect spring fragrance. It is definitely appropriate for most activities including the office. 

Lasting power on this one is probably the least among all the choices in this collection. It lasts around 3 hours.

As it dries down, the scent does not change or intensify a bit with the pink peppers like the original Chanel Chance does, it would fade away gradually leaving you with a fresh light layer of this fragrance. 

After 3 hours, you can layer on other perfumes as you finish your daytime activities  and getting into your nighttime activities.

When you layer this with another perfume, since it is so fresh and light, it never collides badly with another stronger perfume in my experience. 

This version is affordable at only $115 USD per 3.4 oz bottle.
