Spring-Summer Fragrance Picks: Chanel Chance Eau Fraiche

It's getting warmer by the minute here, and my fragrance picks of late have been florals and light citrusy fragrances, which is what I tend to reach for through spring and summer.  My pick for today is Chance Eau Fraiche.

This is a citrusy scent with a mix of florals and warm spicy notes.  It starts off a bit heavy but settles down soon enough, with lighter florals mixing in with the zesty citrus notes.  Some of the warmer notes start to pick up as the day wears on and there is a hint of sweetness, but on me, the perfume also gets quite a bit lighter.  There might not be much of this fragrance left on me at the end of a particularly warm summer day, but I find Chance Eau Fraiche a good pick for the cooler days of spring.  It's fresh and girly without being too sweet or too strong and is a good fragrance for days when I want something casual.  This would also make a good perfume choice for someone who finds most other Chanel perfumes a little too "grown-up."

To me, perfumes sometimes have a bit more to them than just the smell - it's about little stories and memories.  Chance Eau Fraiche, for instance, reminds me of the Chanel counter I used to shop at back in India.  It's what I would smell every time I walk up to the counter - guess this was a favorite with the SA working there :)
