No 5 By Chanel 100ml Review
The No. 5 is a classic best seller from Chanel. It is a classic fragrance that was applauded for many decades by women who loved sophistication and delicate scents. Its original top note is a blend of aldehydes, bergamot, lemon, neroli and ylang-ylang. For the heart notes are jasmine, rose, lily of the valley and iris. The base notes are vetiver, sandalwood, vanilla, amber and patchouli. No. 5 Eau de Parfum has a touch of spiciness after the flowery scent evaporated.
It is a gentle and controlled scent that successfully blends all the flowery fragrance into one beautiful smell that lingers all around and ends up with a woodsy scent. It feels fresh and clean, very graceful and elegant.
The scent is not as arresting as other fragrances, but it has its own uniqueness on the femininity side that makes it an appealing skin scent. Critics say that it survived for a long time merely because of its artistic container or of its advertisements aside from its association with Marilyn Monroe. Aldehyde is something that some women are hard to be pleased about. Yes, it seems out-of-date but Chanel lovers find this all right. It has a strong kick somewhere that is why it needs to be applied sparingly. Otherwise, it would be easy to associate it with the oldies.
At first spritz, impression of the scent might be too powdery, too chilly, and too strong. But after a while, it becomes lovely, refined, radiant and warm. Still, others describe it as a low-cost soap. Perfumes, nonetheless, don’t smell alike on every individual. Many failed to appreciate the first spray, though, but have grown to love the notes following.
Ageless, classic, elegant and mature, that is the Chanel No.5. It seems to be a fragrance for all seasons which was created back in 1921. It is already an institution and a great part of history; a masterpiece. However, in 2012, there are new scents that deserve to be enthroned as the new mother of fragrances. Critics say that there is no way for a woman to be elegant or sophisticated because of wearing Chanel No.5 in this time of year.
No matter what the critics say, No.5 Chanel is still worth applauding for its contribution in the perfume industry since 1920s. It was extremely popular for many decades back then and is still being patronized these days. For the younger ones who love collecting perfumes, this one is worth a try.
