If I need an extra dose of optimism and energy, I try an grapefruit juice (sometimes works as good as a coffee). Or, better, a hint of a citrus touch on my wrist. And that’s the moment when Chanel Chance Eau Vive perfume takes the scene. It’s a fragrance like a lucky charm, with the same grapefruit note found in the original Chance, but this time with a blood orange accord, and energetic citrus touches. Created by Olivier Polge — son of the legendary Jacques Polge who created the fragrance Allure and the original Chance — it’s his first wide-release scent for the house, as it’s newly minted perfumer. The zesty citrus notes immediately set the fresh and vibrant tone of the fragrance, followed by jasmine and white musks, and finally the fresh scent of vetiver wrapped around a cedar-iris accord (www.chanel.com)
