Chanel – Allure Sensuelle

If you’ve loved Chanel fragrances in the past, you’ll definitely love this one from their Allure line. It is being marketed as the perfect eau de parfum for strong, independent women who like to make a statement.

While Chanel does make a similar cologne for men, Allure Sensuelle eau de parfum is made just for women. In fact, it is made for the modern woman who is intense, radiant, and sure of herself.

If you’re looking for a contemporary perfume that can also be described as alluring and magnetic, Chanel Allure Sensuelle is the signature scent for you. 

It recognizes that all women are unique and aims to satisfy the needs of women who want to be a little different, smell good, and show off their uniqueness. 

With soft and somewhat mysterious gourmand accents, the scents are all in perfect proportion to complement one another. It is a beautiful scent perfect both for women who like the outdoor, woody scents and those who like the lighter floral or citrus scents.

It’s best worn on the wrists and, in fact, you’ll be tempted to sniff at your wrists at the end of the day because the scent will still be there.

Presentation and Value for Money

Chanel Allure Sensuelle comes in two sizes. 

The smaller size, which contains 1.7 ounces, sells for around $108. The large bottle, which contains 3.4 ounces of perfume, sells for around $138.

Clearly, the bigger size offers more value for money because it is double the size of the smaller one and costs just $30 more. That being said, the smaller size is perfect for people who want to try it out first, and it is affordable for most people.
