Donna Karan is relaunching its iconic “Chaos” perfume. Brought back by popular demand, the spirited cult-classic was discontinued in the early 2000s but had a band of avid followers who helped this legendary scent reach almost mythic proportions and fought hard for its return.
So now it’s back and it’s to the all important question. Has Karan managed to recapture exactly the same distinctive woody, spicy fragrance of the original? First reports from the devotees appear to indicate it has – though there are suggestions that it may be just a little lighter. One disappointment though seems to be the packaging. Although the newly designed sleek black bottle is elegant enough it just hasn’t the same eye catching appeal and beauty of the original, which was designed by Donna Karan’s late husband, Stephan Weiss.
If you want to find out if this phoenix has truly risen from the ashes, then Chaos is at present available exclusively at Harrods, and will be going nationwide in mid September. Then you can judge for yourself if it’s worth all the hype.
