A fragrance introduced at the beginning of April 2010, Chance Eau Tendre is a flanker to 2002’s Chance. This perfume belongs to floral fruity olfactory group and was developed by Chanel house perfumer, Jacques Polge. On the official website, Chance Eau Tendre is described as “pure olfactory poetry, a fruity-floral fragrance, a vibrant yet delicate scent like a wave of tenderness”. The same source identifies the target as “an optimistic woman who never lets chance passes her by”.
Like any other Chanel fragrance, the olfactory composition of Chance is shaped from carefully selected ingredients, in order to generate a pleasant fragrance. The opening of Chance Eau Tendre is a mix obtained from the citrus-fruity aroma of grapefruit and quice. Later, as the perfume advances into the mid development phase, the floral facet is unveiled, by a blend of hyacinth and Jasmine absolute, which smells like a bouquet of freshly cut flowers. The final part is reserved for the woody accords and includes notes of cedar, amber, iris and white musk.
Since Chance is French for “luck”, the bottle that holds Chane Eau Tendre preserves the round shape which is reportedly a symbol for “circle of luck”, however this time the liquid has a pink pale color scheme and the rectangular stopper is made from frosted glass. The marketing campaign features the slim French model Sigrid Agren, in a video commercial directed by the French photographer Jean-Paul Goude that puts emphasis on the playful character of this fragrance.
