I just love Chanel #5.  The scent is a floral scent with notes of spicy and  woodsy scents.  Chanel #5 is a favorite classic perfume that has been around forever.  I believe that Coco Chanel introduced the perfume way back when.  It has been described as the world's most legendary fragrance and I understand why because when you wear the perfume you feel like a classy, elegant, timeless woman who can face the world on your own terms.  Yes it is pricey, but a little bit goes a long way.  The scent lasts and lasts and does not need to be touched up.  I also like to layer my scents.  This is not a perfume that I use during the day but I prefer just to use a Chanel #5 body lotion.  The more you wear Chanel #5, the more you want to wear it because of the way it makes you feel--you feel like you are an empowered, timeless and beautiful woman--which you are already and Chanel #5 is merely re-enforcing your power of being a woman.

I have always been intrigued by Chanel No. 5 because it's legendary, it's vintage and rumor has it that Marilyn Monroe used to wear it. I always wanted to own some just so I could say that I had it. However after wearing it, I realized that it was much better off just sitting on my vanity table as a collector's item.  It is very intense, pungent, and unnatural.  Fragrances today usually have floral, wooden, fruity, and botanical notes.  No. 5 smells very synthetic, it is very obvious and overpowering. It may remind some of you of your grandmothers as it is also old-fashioned. The modern woman's scent is mysterious, floral, musky, sexy, exotic and sometimes sweet. No. 5 is none of these things. If you're a perfumaniac, it is a great addition to your collection but hardly functional unless strong, synthetic and old is your thing.  Every woman should experience Chanel No. 5 at least once because Coco Chanel changed the game for women for generations to come. Unfortunately, the aroma hasn't changed along with the times and the progression of women.

A true classic

By 

from USA

Comments about Chanel No. 5 - 1.7 oz Eau de Parfum Spray Classic Bottle (Unboxed):

I am 38 years old, and I have always been fascinated by the timelessness of Chanel's Number 5 perfume, it has been around for ages, and in my opinion, remains one of the best perfume for women ever made. My mom wore it for as long as I can remember, but I did not start wearing it until I became older because I never felt classy enough to be able to wear Chanel Number 5. Well, with age, that has changed of course, and I now wear Chanel Number 5 quite proudly and absolutely look forward to spraying a bit on every single day, even on days when I do not go anywhere outside of the house. I have gotten tons of compliments and many people have asked me what perfume I wear. When I tell them that I only wear Chanel Number 5, they are usually surprised because there is a bit of a stereotype regarding this perfume and a lot of people think it is only intended for older women. I love Chanel Number 5 and proudly wear it, even at age 38.

Chanel No. 5 is for the classic woman

By 

from Plainview, NY

Comments about Chanel No. 5 - 1.7 oz Eau de Parfum Spray Classic Bottle (Unboxed):

Chanel No. 5 - 1.7 oz Eau de Parfum Spray Classic Bottle is for the woman who is a classic in every sense. I received this as a gift from my husband when I finished graduate school a few years ago, and it still smells as great as the day he gave it to me (from my experience, some scents change over time). Every time I spray it on, I feel extra special and so accomplished. It is a great confidence booster right before a big meeting or presentation at work, or a social event where you want a little "sparkle" (figuratively speaking, don't worry it doesn't actually sparkle!). I also wear it every day, even just around the house. As a new mom, it is something nice I can do for myself each day to feel like I'm not just "mommy"! The only downside is the fragrance is a bit heavy, so definitely try it out before buying to make sure you like it. Actually, since I received this gift, Chanel has come out with a lighter version - an Eau de Toilette - which I definitely would have asked for instead had it been around.

Chanel No 5: Best Classic Perfume ever

By 

from Austin, TX

Comments about Chanel No. 5 - 1.7 oz Eau de Parfum Spray Classic Bottle (Unboxed):

I do not often use designer perfumes. I use light, fresh smelling colognes for everyday purposes but sometimes there are special occasions where you want to use something more alluring to fit the occasion. This is it for me. It's a scent that's a keeper for me. It is not for young girls, in my opinion. It is more for women. There is a gravitas that the musky quality of this scent requires for one to use it.

The thing is with Chanel No 5, since it is classic and timeless, it is very much in everyone's wishlist and is therefore never on sale. It is expensive for me and it is a luxury which means I only use it on special occasions. I think sometimes it comes in a gift pack but I am always late for that party. There are deals for it at the outlet mall perfumery but you have to be fast too.

I highly recommend this for women who have classic styles and who want a scent that is timeless and exudes sensuality and class at the same time.

Not for everyone, perfect for many

By

Comments about Chanel No. 5 - 1.7 oz Eau de Parfum Spray Classic Bottle (Unboxed):

I've been wearing Chanel 5 since I was 11 years old, when I got a bottle for Christmas from my aunt. She continued to send me a bottle almost every year, and so I still have a few stockpiled. This is a classic. It's a simple, elegant gift for anyone, and most women will find that it's appropriate at least sometimes in their life. Many of them will adore it and want to wear it every day. I will say that the smell is unfortauntely a little dated, so it's starting to smell "too old" to me, even though it seemed appropriate when I was 11 years old!

Chanel 5 was the first all-synthetic perfume, so it has the benefit of having no natural scents, which means there is very likely something you are allergic or sensitive to. This contributes to its mass appeal. It smells clean, sophisticated, and expensive. It's a little heavy for daily wear for me, but I think it's good for evenings. Unfortuantely, it's so classic that it can seem generic. I would advise you try it for a day- i think the smell gets better as they day goes on.

my all time favorite !

Comments about Chanel No. 5 - 1.7 oz Eau de Parfum Spray Classic Bottle (Unboxed):

i absolutely love chanel no. 5. i just can't afford to buy it very often.i have owned 3 bottles of it in my lifetime..if i could afford it , it would be the only thing i ever wore though. i checked on buying just a refill for my big bottle and it was just to expensive for me since i am disabled now and on a fixed income. if they would make it more affordable for those of us who love it, i would wear nothing else though.

Chanel No.5 is the clasic elegance that everyone woman deserves

By

Comments about Chanel No. 5 - 1.7 oz Eau de Parfum Spray Classic Bottle (Unboxed):

Chanel No.5 is the classic elegance that every woman deserves to have as a part of her wardrobe.  It stands alone and can easily be worn alone or with your favorite pair of blue jeans.  This fragrance is such a class act that it affords every woman wearing it their own personality.  The chemistry between the fragrance and the skin that wears it is individually priceless,

Still going strong after many Years!

By 

from Joelton, TN

Comments about Chanel No. 5 - 1.7 oz Eau de Parfum Spray Classic Bottle (Unboxed):

I have been a lifelong user of Chanel Number 5.  I used this fragrance back in my teen years and have used many many difference fragrances but have always came back around to the clean smell of this outstanding perfume.  Any perfume that stays on the market this long has to be at the top.  Perfume fragrances come and go but to survive in the market today after this many years tells you just how good it is.  I have used several of the products in this fragrance line and they all rank at the top on my list.  I have had people ask me what fragrance I was wearing and when I tell them what it is some are pleasantly surprised and when I tell them this is fragrance I have used since my teen years they are in awe.  I have even had people inquire about where to purchase it so that speaks for itself too in the fact that they are interested enough to want to purchase it too.  So many fragrances today are too strong and replusive.  Thanks Chanel Number 5 for staying available to me for so many years.
