An Icon Not for Me
Gifted the Eau de Parfum, and not having tried Chanel No. 5 for years, I only slowly remembered why I don't own a bottle. It was like being in the early stages of a second labor and only gradually remembering what labor pain feels like, too late to escape. At first this rich, powerful floral... Read more

THE classic perfume !
Chanel No.5 was the first perfume launched by French couturier Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel, and has been going strong since 1921. It was this fragrance that saw the introduction of aldehydes into perfumes, by the perfumer Ernest Beaux -- a revolutionary move. This wondrous fragrance is... Read more

Not for me
I appreciate that many people will disagree with me but this is just my personal opinion. Had this for a while now so the other week decided to take the plunge and try it, was put off by thinking it was too classy for me. Really did not settle well on my skin, maybe too oily. First whiff was lemony... Read more

Review for the vintage Eau de Toilette
A truly perfectly balanced floral done in the way only Chanel could do. It is delicate and classy as well as being alluring and sensual, as if giving off a warm glow around the person who wears it, like a soft, golden "aura" following them. It is subtle, but it compliments your own... Read more

A Bit Overrated
Chanel No. 5 is a beautiful classic fragrance, and I've owned several bottles of various vintages. It's very nice, and classy, but am I the only one who wonders why it's so universally adored? I love the fact that my great-grandmother probably wore this, and I can too (or it's inferior current... Read more

A Daisy a Day
She was Hannah, born into relative poverty, in 1888. Her eleventh child, my Mother, was born in 1927. No 5 Chanel, the perfume, was six years old. Hannah was approaching forty, a time when levels of the fatty acid, palmitoleic, rise sharply in our systems. By the time a human body reaches seventy... Read more

Good Night
I know No. 5 for a long time - first it has been my grandma's scent. When she died my mum used to wear it. I put a drop on each arm. Just to see, what is going to happen on my skin. Flower madness and aldehydes - help! My nose is burning! But only 5 minutes later, I can smell Granny - yes,... Read more

Goddess
To me this is the only perfume on the planet that I view as a goddess. All the other perfumes can be princesses, queens, priestesses, and CEOs, but No. 5 is immortal; untouchable; perfection. It's this perfect blend of rose, jasmine, citrus, and sweet powder that becomes something whimsical. ... Read more

Twenty-first Century Women Have No Business Smelling Like Aldehydes. (Or do they?)
"Women have no business smelling like aldehydes" might be the twenty-first-century equivalent of Gabrielle's famous dismissal of floral floral perfumes--at least as far as anyone born after 1980 is concerned. "Women have no business smelling like oakmoss," would be the IFRA's... Read more

Late reprimand
I almost had forgotten him. How could I only? But there is Parfumo! And it is the memory again which the smell brings to me back. I am not getting emotional now, this wouldn't match at the time then (today spare sometimes) and looks back. We were already married when I have bought... Read more

Snowy rich floral of heavenly beauty
This is a review of the EDP. For some reason I kept avoiding for a long time to try it on. I've enjoyed the Eau Premiere the house released a few years back, but I had never touched the original, out of an irrational prejudice that it was way too popular for my taste and thus it couldn't have...

Powdery classic
I believe that it takes a very brave person to say they don't like Chanel No.5. Unfortunately all I get from this fragrance is powder and soap. The Chanel sales assistant told me that my skin chemistry went well with this perfume, and although I had to agree that I enjoyed it to a certain extent, I... Read more
