Being a Writer and Editor means I ALWAYS keep my eyes peeled for the next big opportunity. So you can imagine my surprise when glancing through Glamour magazine, I came across their beauty reviewer program the #GlamourBeautyClub.
This amazing opportunity is FREE to join and allows all us beauty obsessive bloggers the opportunity to review some of the latest beauty products; whether it be makeup, scents or creams.
In order to join the club you visit their website and answer a few questions about your site and share a little about what products you like the most.
You could describe me as a perfume fiend as I have so many bottles on my beauty table. However, I normally turn to the same two or three. (Read my post on my Top 4 scents HERE)
So I was thrilled when I was sent the latest scent from Chanel Paris ‘Gabrielle’.
I have always been a fan of Chanel and No.5 will forever be my favourite. It is the perfect handbag staple for a night out because of its sweet and lasting scent.
Gabrielle is becoming a new fave! it smells so good and lasts for hours.
On researching a little into the perfume, it was interesting to learn more about the #Powerwoman behind the Chanel No 5 brand.
I had no idea her name was Gabrielle and it was good to learn more about the inspiration behind the brand.
The perfume itself is a complete floral scent and often I find that floral perfumes can come across quite sickly and overbearing. However, Gabrielle is sweet in a good way and is based on a broad bouquet of ylang-ylang, Jasmine, Orange Blossom and Grasse Tuberose. I would definitely wear this as the perfect transitional scent from day to night.
As part of the #GlamourBeautyClub package you receive a petite but perfectly sized sample tube which comes in a spray and not a roll on which is so much better as it allows you to apply it on your pulse points and eye points of your clothing. You also receive a lovely card which informs you of your being selected to review and sample the beauty product.
It also included packaging which comes which has written on it:
“I decided who I wanted to be and that is who I am’ – Gabrielle Chanel
A fitting quote for what is a brand that has undoubtedly stood the test of time not only because of its overall quality but their ability to turn out one amazing perfume after another.
Hours after applying, the beautiful scent still lingered on. I will definitely be buying this or better still requesting it as a Christmas gift from Santa! 😉
I give Chanel ‘Gabrielle’ 5 out of 5.
Get yourself a bottle from all good perfume and beauty retailers.
