I tried 31 Rue Cambon twice in my perfumista past . Once in 2008 and again in 2009 I believe. Both from pretty good samples.
In all honesty I think 31 Rue Cambon has been reformulated a bit and it has been brightened just a bit.

The first two samples I tried ..I loved the first one .I was reminded of clothes scented with high perfume , in a closet. Rich ,rare and comforting. …

I had high hopes for 31 Rue Cambon. Perhaps I had too high of expectations but who wouldn't when Chanel chose to call this "31 Rue Cambon" and it was created by Jacques Polge? I was hoping to smell my wrist at each stage and marvel at the greatness or at least the uniqueness of it but I can't do that an any stage of this fragrance. It's certainly not a scrubber but it …Read more

What a gorgeous find.

I was surprised to see comparisons to Number 5 and Coco here . . . although, there's a good whallop of powder in this, this is considered a light (i.e., "modern") chypre fragrance, infused with patchouli.

This is a floral -- woody fragrance, created by Jacques Polge, who also created Allure, Allure Sensual, Coco, Coco Noir, Sycamore …

I bought a sample of this parfume but it did not smell anything.

What a glorious, old world fragrance. I can't imagine wearing it in spring and summer, but it's one of my go to frags for fall/winter, along with Shamilar Ode to Vanille and Dioressence. Really rich, warm chypre, really well done.

I love some Chanels, and had high hopes for this, but no such luck. Very indolic. Quite metallic and sweaty-smelling to my nose at times. After about an hour, it settles down a little and gets a bit powdery. Still not for me though. And of course, as with most perfumes I do not like, it sticks around for a long time.

Bergamot (and citrus in general) and I tend to not be friends, and 31 Rue Cambon confirmed it. All I get is ashy-burned-medicinal citrus--in other words, floor cleaner. No. 5 Eau Premiere did the same exact thing to me, so I'm not surprised, just disappointed.

Some people here say it smells like Coromandel...??? The only similarity I see between the two is that both are perfume and that is about it. Now come on, if you spray this on at the shop along with two other perfumes, can we really call this testing??? In my opinion to really get to know a fragrance and to be able to decide whether you like it or not you really need a one on one experience …Read more

This is my perfume for getting things done, especially things I’ve been putting off or just generally don’t feel like doing.

The opening can be a little manic—no snap and growl of aldehydes, but lots of bouncing citrus. Then there’s a peppery phase. Then it’s a crisp floral, seems mostly iris, without any powder. From time to time, it reminds me of Mythique.

I don’t …

This is lovely and I find it a little similar to #5 Sensual Elixir. There are women for whom this is or will be a holy grail. I've had one decant since it was released and have thought of how lovely it is every time I wear it. The thing is, it isn't a scent that has automatically entered my mind to wear for any specific occasion. It's more like I've been looking through my …Read more
