In Tokyo's high-end Ginza district, the Chanel Building stands out among the luxury fashion boutiques and global brands' emporiums thanks to its shining black-glass exterior.

To go inside Chanel's flagship shop in Japan is, for the normal hom sap, however, to be overwhelmed by the variety of elegant and luxurious items including bags, shoes, suits and jewelry — and stunned by their prices.

Such is also the case in the perfumes section where, among the array of fragrances, is one of Chanel's newest, named Chance. The surprising floral bursts of this "decidedly young scent for those who dare to dream" is seemingly pitched at women with a nose for the unexpected — and who like to think they take chances in life.
