The Only Cologne You Will Ever Need: Bleu De Chanel

The Only Cologne You Will Ever Need: Bleu De Chanel

Taking a closer look at Bleu de Chanel - considered by many to be the most appealing and versatile cologne for men ever!

As a man matures and improves his grooming and self-care, he will inevitably become aware of the odor emanating from his body. A man should want to smell, well, like a man! But goodness no, you don’t want to smell like man-musk or dank body odor!

Yet, even for those who have been blessed with good pheromones, one must have a reliable, and versatile cologne! But the options you have in choosing a cologne are endless - and many guys just want one cologne they can wear whenever they need a boost. But is there a cologne that can suit any occasion?

Martin Scorsese was called upon to direct a commercial for Bleu de Chanel - if the commercial is good, the cologne must be good!

Good News - I believe there is! I’d like to introduce you to a cologne that I think is the best all-around cologne you can buy;  one that you can wear in both work and play environments. A cologne so good in fact, that Martin Scorsese has even directed a commercial for it! That cologne is:

Bleu de Chanel

Since its introduction in 2010, Bleu de Chanel’s popularity has never wavered. If you do a Google search, you’ll find 5-Star reviews claiming it to smell like a blend of a sensual, intimate night time fragrance and one that is still perfectly suited for office duty.

Fresh scents are usually inoffensive and versatile

I can assure you, the reviews hyping the cologne are legit. This is a tank of a cologne in every sense of the imagination. The full array of notes are: pink peppercorn, citrus, peppermint, nutmeg, vetiver, grapefruit, cedar, labdanum, jasmine, incense, patchouli, ginger and sandalwood. Sounds sophisticated don’t it?! It has a bold presence, but is also fresh and mass appealing, making it perfect for almost any occasion.

Compliments have been handed to me by co-workers, family, friends, girlfriend and best of all, strangers! There is nothing more satisfying and reassuring than receiving that elusive compliment from the delighted nose of a stranger!

A good cologne, like Bleu de Chanel, should make you feel different - like you can accomplish!

Bleu de Chanel has become a go-to for me whenever I need that extra “umph” to make me feel more confident about myself when going out to conquer life. That is exactly what a cologne should make you feel! When I smell Bleu, I picture a man who is the CEO of a company or  works on Wall Street and is in full control of his self-care; he eats well, works out and dresses to perfection.

Bleu comes in many different size variations, notably a travel size which I recommend if you don’t want to commit to a bigger bottle, and  to save a few bucks. Speaking of price, the good news for those who want to go all in on a full bottle is that it’s not too expensive either. Currently, Amazon is offering this sexy potion at $85 for a 1.7oz bottle. The 1.7oz bottle has lasted me months, and the smaller size shouldn’t be a problem for most.

Like any cologne, the first time you put it on for the day is always going to be strongest. Bleu de Chanel truly shines as the day goes by and the secondary (or bottom) notes take over. I’ll normally put this on in the morning and will not have to worry about it fizzling out. The potency of the cologne does dip, but still retains character - it simply tones itself down as the day progresses, like a gentleman loosening his tie at the end of a long day.

In less than 10 years, Bleu de Chanel has created a legacy for itself. It has become such a well liked scent and is sure to satisfy fragrance newbies and veteran enthusiasts alike. With this cologne you are certain to feel, and at the very least smell, like you can do it all.
