Fragrance Review: Chanel Eau de Cologne

I recently set out to try one of the most popular Chanel Les Exclusifs Colognes called Eau de Cologne. I was interested in the scent because I heard that its crisp, fresh and clean aroma complements both men and women. Since the holidays are upon us, I'm always looking for great unisex gifts—most of my friends are coupled up now and bathroom real estate is precious.

The fragrance was created by Jacques Polge, and I was surprised by how much it reminded me of the yummy Italian limoncello dessert drink. The scent has notes of peppered rose, lemon, musk bergamot, neroli, vetiver and vanilla. (It's no wonder that it smells so delicious!)

The downside is that it's strong at first — so strong that more than one spray could bowl over anyone standing within ten feet of you. However, the upside is that although it hits you hard and fast, in time it fades into a charming floral scent.

Now that you know what an eau de cologne is, you can understand why the bottles are so big. In fact, it's one of the only scents that comes in a 400ml size ($300) as well as a 200ml size ($175). If you have a big budget and want to give a luxe gift, you might want to consider this one.
