Very helpful Review
The time was ripe... Lady!
On my list for years, but never tested to save myself disappointment. I didn't want to ruin the image I had of it. Censored, commented on, praised, idolized. In reference to my last blog and thanks to a bottling of the dear Maya, I wanted to know it now after all.
A feeling like on a blind date, where you think to yourself in advance "This will be nothing with us anyway" and you go anyway. Until now, I could be warm with no Chanel fragrance.
Spontaneously, I was very positively surprised. The fragrance begins rather dark. Soft and with subtle citrus fresh accents. In the course, it becomes more powdery and creamy, but nicely balanced by the patch. Cuddly and unobtrusive, but still somehow special. Not a riotous scent at all. Actually a very nice fragrance, but we will probably not meet again. On others I would probably find you really good. On me it feels dressed up.
Chanel... the little black dress, gold, pearls, elegance. A "lady fragrance" just, where lady should not be the equivalent of gentleman:-) The term "lady" is often pushed by the addition of "older" or "more mature" lady already in a certain direction. For me, "lady" but has absolutely nothing age-related, but shows through a certain charisma, a certain appearance.
When I close my eyes, I see with the fragrance rather Tippi Hedren, as she rowed in her pencil skirt across the lake or the good Audrey, as she looks for her cat. I don't see me there:-)
I like the scent, but we don't match. Interesting blind date, but nothing for longer. Still, nice that we finally met.
Durability: my skin has virtually inhaled the fragrance. After 1- 1 1/2 hours, he was, except on the wrist, for me hardly noticeable.
Still a small "women's fragrance" - history:
For years, a fragrance buzzes around in my head. A woman I knew ,always wore this one and I ALWAYS called her on it, and enjoyed being in the same room with her.
However, the scent itself was also room filling. Then at some point she bottled some for my birthday in a nice spray bottle and gave it to me. But she never told me what it was.
This is now certainly more than 10 years ago and I still own it and do not want to use up the last puny remainder. I've been to countless perfumeries with it, hoping someone would figure out what the fragrance was - negative. All I knew was that it had to be a "women's fragrance".... Dior, Guerlain, YSL - no Chanel. And I sniffed through everywhere and didn't find it.
After the dear patron was a real lady for me: tall, perfectly styled, always perfect make up, always everything exactly coordinated, classy but not ostentatious, elegant, it was the perfect fragrance for HER. And sometimes I'm almost glad I didn't find it.
... but, should I meet her again sometime in this life, I will still ask her about it:-)
and probably she won't be able to remember.
