Press Event : Chanel #TakeYourChance

Life is all about taking chances … and that’s exactly what Chanel did with their fragrance “Chance”. I was lucky enough to attend a Chanel #TakeYourChance VIP event for Toronto Beauty Bloggers, Media & Editors at the Hudson’s Bay Yorkdale recently to celebrate these fragrances. The line includes 4 different scents : Chance Original, Chance Eau Fraiche, Chance Eau Tendre and Chance Eau Vive.

The inspiration of these fragrances comes from this quote :

It comes and goes, it never stays still… and you only have a few seconds to seize your chance. It is unpredictable and appears when you least expect it, but if you decide to seize it, anything is possible. “A chance came up, I seized it.” Mademoiselle Chanel knew that her real chance was the one of her own creation, a state of mind, a way of being.

At the event, we were able to try ALL the fragrances, the body cream and hair mists! We also got to check out the “Dans La Lumiere De L’ete” Makeup Collection, while receiving a quick makeup touchup by the talented Chanel Makeup Artist. I LOVE the Sahara lip gloss!

If we were up for it, we were able to get our fortunes read by Tarot Card Reader, Kristina Rembalski! Kind of a neat idea and totally in line with the theme of the night! I decided to get mine done for fun! Although there were some pretty general statements made, there were a few things Kristina mentioned that were bang on! It was so fun discussing ideas of how to expand my business further and her predictions of my future travels!

The expert artist, Christopher J. Nevin whipped up a sketch of me in less than 5 minutes.  See what he came up with at the bottom of the post!

There were also mini desserts floating around, candy-to-go (yum!), drinks, music (by the lovely DJ above), a photobooth and Chanel fortune cookies! Yes, you heard right, Chanel fortune cookies! How cute is that?! I thought it was just a regular fortune cookie, until I opened it and it said, “Energy, Optimism, Freshness, Softness? Which CHANCE is yours?”

Overall, had a great time! My favourite scent was “Chance Eau Tendre”, which has more of a floral-fruity fragrance with grapefruit, quince and jasmine. The coolest thing is the shape of the bottle — the roundness means there’s no end note. The fragrance reacts differently with each person’s body chemistry, so the scent is all by chance — hence the name!
