A few weeks ago Glamour Daily sent me sample of the new Chanel perfume, Gabrielle. It was my first package from them so was very excited to see what it was!
I am definitely 100% not a perfume expert so I really wan't sure what to expect and I only own three perfumes that I regularly wear to compare this to. I sprayed a little on my wrist at first to see if I liked the smell. I don't like fragrance to be overpowering and this certainly wasn't. It had a gentle floral scent to it, reminded me of a blossom in the spring. I thought it was a beautiful scent so I spritzed a little on my neck ready to start the day.
I kept sniffing my wrist all through the day (and yes I did get some odd looks) just to see how well it lasted. It was around two hours before I noticed the smell had started to fade away slightly. By the end of the day there was a very faint smell of it lingering on my wrist but it had almost completely gone. I had had a fairly busy day going round town, running errands and being a little on the hot side so I was almost expecting it wasn't going to last all day due to the nature of the day ahead.
The simple and subtle, floral smell of it made a lovely every day fragrance to wear. I would definitely recommend Gabrielle if you like gentle, floral scents. The wear of it would be better for me if I have a fairly relaxed day ahead of me when I'm not here, there and everywhere as it's not as long lasting as a couple of the other perfumes I own. However, I would definitely feel happy purchasing this product for either myself when my sample runs out or as a gift - I would certainy wear it again!
