Lyric82's Review of Gabrielle Essence by Chanel

Sandalwood and vanilla, with ylang, but very much in the style of Chanel. There’s a hint of the bright and juicy berries with citrus, but overall this feels like a very feminine woody and floral musk. The vanilla adds a sweetness, but no so much to distract from the other notes. The Tuberose, Jasmine, and orange blossom are quite tame, in fact, the fragrance in general is very tame. I think some may find it boring, but I do not. I find it very pretty and polite, but sometimes that’s what you want. It’s all very balanced.
