A bold woman looking for a challenge

Having faced her challenge and overcome it, the star of the campaign is accepted by her peers.
The new zesty floral Chance scent
Chance Eau Vive is the first fragrance concocted by Olivier Polge. The scent opens on notes of grapefruit with a hint of blood orange. This gives way to a bouquet of jasmine, white musk, vetiver and cedar.
Chance Eau Vive will be available for purchase on June 12 in Chanel points of sale, as well as from authorized retailers, as a 50ml bottle for around €71 or a 100ml bottle for around €102.
