Chanel makes some of the best perfumes for women. Many of them target mature women, however. Teenage girls and young women typically have limited options when they want to smell.
Of course, young women can wear any Chanel perfume they like. This is highly advisable as they’ll learn more about perfumes with Chanel than with almost any other brand.
Still, many young ladies want to smell trendy, and trendy is something that can’t be associated with all Chanel perfumes for women.
Best Chanel Perfumes for Young Women
The following scents are recommended for young ladies. While they can always sample all Chanel perfumes, there’s only room for a few in the daily rotation.
1. Chanel Chance Eau Fraiche
Characterized by a citrusy-fresh smell, Chanel Chance Eau Fraiche is the perfect Chanel perfume for young ladies.
It has a unisex profile (due to its cedar note) but it certainly smells best on college girls and young professionals.
This perfume starts with lemon, citron, and cedar.
Hyacinth, jasmine, and pink pepper are its mid accords.
Patchouli, musk, teak wood, vetiver, amber, and iris are very intense notes in it as well.
Probably a unisex that leans towards the feminine side, Chance Eau Fraiche is only appreciated by young women. Mature women expect old-school Chanel sophisticated can always turn towards other options such as Chanel Allure Senuselle.
2. Chanel Gabrielle
Gabrielle is a floral perfume with a level of maturity. It’s not the ‘youngest’ Chanel perfume but it has a new interpretation that steps away from vintage Chanel perfumes for women.
This floral perfume is ideal for everyday wear and for a long list of events young girls are interested in. It even works as a date Chanel perfume for women.
3. Chanel Chance Eau de Parfum
Chanel Chance is one of the ideal Chanel perfumes for 20-year-old women to 25-year-old young women. It has a fresh musk interpretation. This musk perfume smells very modern, unlike most other musks.
Iris, jasmine, and patchouli are strong notes in this perfume.
These intense notes plus the mostly recommend Chanel Chance for in-between seasons such as spring and fall when it smells the best.
The perfume has OK longevity. It lasts 4-6 hours on the skin.
While not the longest-lasting Chanel for women, it still has very good performance for just about any occasion such as school, college, work, shopping, or date nights.
4. Chanel Chance Eau de Toilette
Chanel Chance is a woody-patchouli fragrance with lemon and pineapple. It’s arguably the sexiest Chanel perfume for young women and a must-have for date night.
Patchouli, pink pepper, pineapple, hiacynth, and iris are its opening accords.
Lemon, jasmine, and rose are its heart notes.
Musk, vetiver, and vanilla are its alluring-sweet base accords.
This perfume lasts around 5 hours on the skin.
Chanel perfumes are highly sophisticated. They are normally worn by up class mature ladies. But there are a few Chanel perfumes young women love as seen above.
Young ladies need to stay away from Chanell Allure, Coco by Chanel, Chanel No 5, and Chanel Coco Noir as these smell a bit too sophisticated and they can be interpreted as perfumes for mature ladies.
However, my experience has shown me even these Chanel perfumes are part of young ladies’ perfume collections since they smell so good. They aren’t worn daily but rather on special occasions. Otherwise, the perfumes listed above are perfect for any age starting with the teenage years and up to 30.
