Choosing a Good Fragrance

We love smelling good and there are more than plenty of fragrances to try as well to match with your personal taste. When it comes to fragrances, there are lots of factors to consider but the most important is that you need to like them as well. The fragrance needs to fit in your nose and you have to be comfortable when wearing them. Other people’s feedback is great to help you make the decision, especially for those that are often around you.

There are some information and factors that you need to know about fragrances in modern days. They are usually made with a three-tiered pyramidal structure made of head, heart, and base notes. The top pyramid is called head notes and you will often see them using citrus and light floral notes. The head notes are created to be the first thing you smell and what you notice first while also gone or dissipated within thirty minutes or so.

Next is in the middle or heart notes which is conventionally known to be made up of florals, spices, herbs, and some woods. Heart notes are said to have another dimension to the scent before giving way to the all-important base notes. The base notes are the last and also the strongest in the performance part as they will last for hours depending on the performance of the whole fragrance itself. In general they are usually made of wood, spices, and vanilla because they have the largest molecular weight as well as lasting power.

A good fragrances are those that give you olfactory satisfaction which results in how the scent is made. What’s unique is that the fragrance can be different when they interact with your skin, causing unique chemistry. This is affected by the base notes and the interaction with the skin. Your friend can use the same scent but end up smelling completely different. Do note that some scents will fade away faster than others such as citrus that is smallest in molecular size.

Our body is unique and this uniquely affects the final result or how they smell on you. In general the light, fresh scents may not work for people who are often eating heavy spiced foods as the scent will change through hormonal changes. The chemistry also changes with the menstrual cycle for women and if you live in a place with a colder climate or involving lots of outdoor activities, this may affect the choice of fragrances too for it to work with your body.

About Bleu de Chanel and Versace Dylan Blue

When you are shopping for a fragrance, make sure to try it first and let it dry before spending on one, especially if they are expensive. The difference between cheap and expensive fragrances are usually how refined they are and how long lasting they can stick on your body. If you don’t have the time to be adventurous, we can just pick from the popular collection or ask your friend that always smells good to know what they wear often.

Designer perfumes are very popular and there are almost an unlimited amount to consider. If you prefer something classic and familiar, options like Jovan Musk Vs Black Musk will be very ideal. They are very affordable as well and chances are people will like or be fine with the scent. For trendy choices, brands like Chanel and Versace are some of the most popular lately and brand power aside, they do make lots of interesting fragrances for both men and women. 

If you are an adult male who wants to get compliments from the people around you, the Bleu de Chanel and Versace Dylan Blue are some alternatives to try. Sauvage is probably still among the mainstream picks today but they may come off too strong for some. These fragrances are best when worn during the day or night but probably more suitable during the warmer weather or at least fall. The two are not coming off as strong but more refined.

Just like most men’s fragrances, you can get that fresh and crispness from the two but they are not overly sporty at the same time. In comparison we do think the Dylan Blue is warmer than Bleu de Chanel because it is dominant in amber. In addition the dry down of Dylan Blue is also more unique and complex but personally we love the two and would like you to try them. Both men and women seem to like these fragrances too so they are safe choices.

Bleu de Chanel and Versace Dylan Blue Presentation 

This may not have anything to do with the performance or scent but we are sure many of us pay attention to the packaging as well. In this area the two are quite simple and straightforward that we think the bottle itself represents the fragrance in some way. The transparent tinted glass lets you see the liquid inside and they are very compact to hold and apply. The detailing is native to the brand’s fashion but we agree that Versace with its gold plate makes the blue bottle or Dylan Blue look elegant.

On the other hand the Chanel approach to Bleu de Chanel is simpler and probably rather sporty. There is only one detailing located at the top of the cap with the same dark tint of the bottle. Moving back to Versace, we love the gold cap and the brand labeling embossed as well since it adds an expensive look to the packaging. The variant we are comparing today is the EDP of Chanel and EDT from Versace so price wise the Bleu de Chanel will most likely be higher.

Bleu de Chanel and Versace Dylan Blue Notes

As it has been mentioned above, usually modern fragrances are made in three layers so you can see what notes or scent you like or want. The compositions of Bleu de Chanel and Versace Dylan Blue are pretty similar to each other starting with Chanel which is opened with grapefruit, lemon, pink pepper, and mint. The heart of this fragrance is made of spicier notes or ginger, nutmeg, jasmine, and iso e super while for the base it is warmer and woody with vetiver, incense, cedar, sandalwood, patchouli, labdanum, and white musk.

Similarly, the Dylan Blue is also made of fresh notes at the top with calabrian bergamot, grapefruit, fig leaf, and water notes. The heart is more complex and warm with ambroxan, black pepper, violet flower, patchouli, and papyrus. As for the base, the fragrance is made of musk, incense, tonka bean, and saffron. 

Bleu de Chanel and Versace Dylan Blue Impression 

Next we want to talk about the impression from Bleu de Chanel and Versace Dylan Blue which are kind of similar and different at the same time. What’s surprising is citrus not being the first notes we smell from Dylan Blue but it is amber instead. With Bleu de Chanel we can smell citrus first when sprayed and it lasts for quite some time too before introducing a warmer and woody note that makes the fragrance warm but spicy. On the other hand Versace is more fresh and spicy, probably from the water and black pepper notes.

In comparison the Bleu de Chanel is not musky so it is not as sweet as the Dylan Blue when it begins to dry down. The heart is mostly darker with amber and smoky with a slight balsamic nuance too while Dylan is warm with some aquatic crispness. When they settle on the skin for longer, Dylan actually becomes more aquatic and fresh with a slight smokiness unlike Bleu which is more on the balsamic and green.

Bleu de Chanel and Versace Dylan Blue Performance 

Lastly let’s check the performance of Bleu de Chanel and Versace Dylan Blue since they are a bit different. The Versace is actually louder meaning the first hour of wearing this fragrance is quite strong especially on the amber notes so it is best to reduce it a little bit. The Bleu opens up milder in comparison and it states the citrus right away while with Dylan we have to wait a little bit more. Lasting power is not great for Bleu at around 3 hours while Dylan can stay for 6-9 hours.

Bleu de Chanel Vs Versace Dylan Blue

Both Bleu de Chanel and Versace Dylan Blue are attractive yet versatile fragrances to try. They don’t smell exactly the same so it is wise to choose based on which you like better. For those who love fresh opening, Bleu de Chanel is perfect and it is mild too without being too aggressive. Dylan Blue on the other hand is warmer and also a little bit aquatic but, this EDT somehow can last longer than the EDP Bleu.
