Versace Dylan Blue is one of the top trending fragrances of today. Alberto Morillas is the nose behind this all occasion-friendly, epic fragrance.

2. Missoni Parfum Pour Homme
Missoni Parfum Pour Homme is not a very famous fragrance, however, it is very similar to Bleu De Chanel. I really don’t really know the perfumer (if you know, please mention in the comments). Nevertheless, I do know that it was released in 2017 which makes it a relatively new release.
As I mentioned earlier, it is extremely similar to Bleu De Chanel. It’s just a lot citrusy and not that fresh. It opens with a huge burst of lemon and grapefruits just to quickly dry down to the dark musk, sandalwood and patchouli.
This fragrance is one of the cheapest alternatives to Bleu De Chanel. The price of this fragrance is probably the reason why it has a moderate projection (neither great nor bad), however, it stays on your skin for a long time. You may check it out on Amazon if you like the specifications.
3. Dior Sauvage
Here comes the beast, Dior Sauvage! It is one of the most loved fragrances worldwide, thus, probably the best alternative to Bleu De Chanel. It is an aromatic-fougere fragrance created by Francois Demachy, promoted by Johnny Depp (it’s important to mention) & was launched in 2015.
Dior Sauvage is definitely not the most similar to Bleu De Chanel, however, you get those BDC vibes from it. This fresh-spicy fragrance opens with bergamot and pepper, it then dries down to it lavender and ambroxan. When it approaches its end, it becomes a woody skin scent.
Dior Sauvage is a great option if you want a designer fragrance that is loved and recognized by many people. You can also wear to many occasions, which also makes it a contender to be your signature scent. If you like Sauvage’s character, you can check it out on Amazon
4. Jimmy Choo Man Intense
Jimmy Choo Man is an underdog when it comes to blue men’s fragrances. This aromatic-fruity fragrance is created by Anne Flipo and was launched in 2014. It was also the very first men’s fragrance by the house of Jimmy Choo.
Jimmy Choo opens up with peppery, citrusy and sweet accords (smells amazing). It then dries down to a manly dark skin scent by the help of tonka beans and patchouli.
This fragrance is an amazing option if you want a sweeter version of Bleu De Chanel. It is a very versatile fragrance, It is long lasting, however, the projection is not the best. If you want a sweet Bleu De Chanel, make sure to check it out on Amazon.
5. Elysium By Roja Parfums
Elysium Pour Homme by Roja Parfums is the most expensive fragrance on this list. It is an aromatic-fougere fragrance created Roja Dove and was launched in 2017.
Elysium opens up with a lot of citruses and spices which smell really sharp. It then dries down to some more subtle citruses and amazing vetiver. It kinda smells like Roja’s Vetiver Pour Homme at the dry down with no smoky accords.
Elysium Pour Homme by Roja Parfums is a great option and alternative to Bleu De Chanel if you have lots of money to spend and want a real luxury fragrance. The downside buying this fragrance is that does not have a the performance. The best part of buying this fragrance is that its really luxurious (amazing!).
