It’s a strong, fresh scent, with a great personality, very good longevity on my skin and clothes, the sillage of CHANEL Paris – Édimbourg is impressive considering it’s an Eau de Toilette. On my skin, the relaxing woody notes appears to come more obvious after 1 or 2 hours after the first spray.
Paris – Édimbourg is an elegant fragrance, it has that CHANEL powdery special note, very subtle, it combines in a very harmoniuos way the freshness of the fruits with the vetiver and woody notes, not too harsh, not too sweet, it’s a very distinguished scent, and the beautiful package of this perfume is very aesthethic. Actually, the whole line of Les Eaux de CHANEL have the same shape for the fragrance bottle, with the black cap and the CHANEL logo, with a very good atomiseur, and the transparent bottle with rounded shape on each side.
