Grandma's bang
"boring granny stink smell" that's what I used to think when I saw Chanel No 5 in the shop shelf.
But I had never tested him... and I also knew how to judge him... Such a well-known smell and I had prejudices, although I had never smelled it before...

How superficial of me. I must say, I'm almost a little ashamed of it :(

When curiosity had won over me again and I decided to test this "grandma water", I was almost a bit nervous...
What does this fragrance actually have in store for me? I don't know anybody who wears or wore No. 5 and therefore had an absolute 00.00 comparison...

So I asked a saleswoman in one of my favourite fragrance shops if she could give me a sample of Chanel No. 5 so I could try it.
With the "grandma-stink-water" in my luggage I go home and prepare myself mentally for a probably very strong slap in the face of the "grandma"...

With awe I spray "the grandma" on my arm and smell with closed eyes - for fear of the bang - sometimes shy at my arm:

Yes, but there's a little bang, but not as great as expected...

"Grandma" first throws "old hats" around her before she reaches for bergamot and lemon...

-----The prelude of aldehydes, bergamot, fresh lemons and neroli is rather "old-fashioned" and already very "fresh" but not bad, I have to say (I don't like citrus scents)...

Shaken by the "throwing around" of the "old hats" and the citrus drizzle of the "grandma", some dust has stirred up...

-And the scent becomes slightly powdery through the iris.... Also a light sweetness - probably from him Jasmin - I can sniff out...

The "dust" hasn't settled yet and grandma already starts to wash off the "dust" with soap everywhere. Full of energy and with a lot of soap "the granny" scrubs what holds the stuff!

-----The scent runs with the powdery into the soap and holds surprisingly long in this fine powdery soap state on my skin...

The "grandma" - still angry - starts to tear the wooden slats out of the ground !

-----The scent becomes with me after approx. 4.5 to 5 hours of the fine powdery soap additionally still easily "musty-woody", which is here very harmonious and suitable...

"The "grandma" has slowly reacted a bit and the energy is gradually dwindling...

-----The smell says goodbye with me after a wearing time of approx. 9 hours, which is nevertheless tidy..

In summary, I can say that "grandma" is sympathetic to me and I like her. She is a bit energetic and crazy, but still she has class and charm... (a real grandma hald ;)

I would like to revise my prejudices against Chanel No. 5 - stamped as "granny fragrance" - but advise everyone to test the fragrance once ...
