Too strong and unappealing
The Chanel Number 5 is regarded as one of the best fragrances, a timeless scent that almost everyone loves. However, I could never get myself to enjoy this fragrance no matter how many times I sprayed it. I find that it smells overly mature and overpowering, something that I would expect older generations to wear. To me the scent is really strong and gives me a headache, something that happens very rarely for me. It's got a very strong floral scent that I find really ages the person wearing it and it's too heavy of a fragrance. I feel like it's something that my grandma would wear.
Chanel No 5 is a unique scent for all women. Its all about loving myself and gives me boldness as a women. A timeless scent for all women.
Not for me.
Was a scrubber for me. Scent undertone is so strong and all I can smell is musty, dirty, wet, animalic note. With some chemical mix I can not decipher. Got the fragrance as a gift and had to give away. Tried to use it as a room freshener , but room smelled as if a cat did the business there. Bottle is elegant. Juice, not.
I love this classic perfume, and its called classic for a reason!
Its has such a beautiful floral scent that lingers on for a long time, it has great staying power and you don't need a lot at all.
Its a bit pricey but you get what you pay, The scent has a very feminine feel to it which is perfect for any classy women. Overall its a great perfume for any occassion.
Chanel No. 5 perfume was created in 1921 and is one of my immortal perfumes which I have been purchasing for many years Now. This is a classy and luxurious scent that I wear mostly in the evenings. The bottle is stylish and the scent possesses a blend of modern floral's and balanced notes.
The perfume, despite age is not common nor copied, it's too complex and of high branded quality. Chanel No. 5 is a timeless yet completely glamorous perfume.The scent is immediately recognisable and people always compliment me when I wear it. This perfume entails a long lasting scent that is not too heavy nor too light. Fabulous on the skin with no irritation.
Chanel No. 5 is a very popular choice of perfume for many consumers and worth every dollar spent.
When I first sprayed Chanel No 5 in my late 20s, I immediately fell in love with it. It's a fragrance that you can't put your finger on, is it floral or oriental? Nevertheless, it's my go-to perfume for fancy nights out or during winter. I don't wear the scent as often during summer as I think it's slightly on the heavy side. The design of the bottle is exquisite as well, it looks great on your mantelpiece and you won't regret buying this.
This is such a beautiful and classic fragrance. It has such a distinct smell recognised on anyone. This has been the only perfume others can smell on me the rest just soak into my skin. It is a mature smell targeted at older sophisticated women. Not mich is needed at all.
This fragrance is very smooth and feminine. There is a reason this perfume is so timeless and classic. It is absolutely beautiful. The scent lasts well. The fragrance is quite pricey, but the product you get is luxurious and of top quality. You cannot be disappointed by Chanel No. 5!
I love this elegant fragrance. I admit I know nothing about "notes" top or bottom. All I know is that I love the scent, it has lasting power and suits me. I always receive compliments when I wear it. I love to wear perfume everyday as it makes me feel confident and happy.
such a classic iconic fragrance, so special. I love this and have been wearing chanel no 5 for years. This eau de parfum spray lasts and lasts, the scent lingers beautifully. A classic, classy, sophisticated, sexy scent, a gorgeous floral, like a huge bouquet of beautiful flowers. I often recieve this as a gift, how lucky, it is podery, light, floral and elegant. I always feel special wearing it and receive compliments all the time, a signature scent that is so stunning. The bottle is divine, a real collectors bottle. It is a high end price point but does come in different sizes and a little goes a long way, I adore it and highly recommend it
I was first introduced to this fragrance 25+ years ago by my worst ex boyfriend ever. The kind you can't believe you dated and hope your daughter never does and your son's don't turn into. I'm pretty sure he bought me this to make up for something he'd done to me.
I should therefore hate it by association. The fact that I don't shows how much I love it.
Yes, it does smell powdery as another reviewer said. But that's what I love. The fragrance is light and hard to describe yet strong and lasting and instantly recognisable.
I've had many a bottle over the years and ration d them for special occasions, sometimes to my own detriment. Like any fragrance, they can turn or oxidize or be affected by sun or just age! So I've learned to use and enjoy until they run out.
I'm fortunate to have just opened a 100ml bottle and I have a 200ml to open when this runs out so I can use it every day for no other reason than I want to. No saving for a special occasion now.
And yes, it's a high end fragrance but when you consider the cost per wear and the enjoyment it's worth every cent.
I feel elegant and put together when I'm wearing perfume and many people comment on it. I'm careful not to spray on jewelry but sometimes I spray my hair or my clothes instead of my skin.
I'm not planning on ever wearing another fragrance again so yes, I will repurchase.
Beautiful bottle (classic!) and an icon, shame it smells like baby powder......
Is there anything more iconic than Chanel #5? I credit this perfume for my beauty obsession. As a little girl, I remember seeing the bottle on my mother's dressing table and even as a child with absolutely no knowledge of the adult world, it was obvious to me that this is the fanciest, most elegant and sophisticated thing in the entire world. For me it's comfort and confidence in a bottle. The bottle is a work of art and the fragrance is classic sophistication. Is it powder? Is it floral? It's hard to say because the fragrance is kind of mysterious. But one thing's for sure - it is femininity in a bottle. It's the perfume I always choose when I know I really need to slay the day and it never lets me down.
