    Default Chanel N5 Perfume


    Chanel's forever classic number 5 perfume has been around for years, outlasted the test of time since the early 20's.


    The perfume designer and creator of the Chanel number 5 perfume was Ernest Beaux. He presented to Coco Chanel two series of numbered samples from 1 to 5 and 20 to 24. She choose the 5th sample and named it N5. Five was also her lucky number. Rumor has it just before launching her first perfume, she met with a fortune teller, who told Coco that her lucky number was 5. So she named her scent "No. 5", and released it on the fifth day of the fifth month of the year, May 5.


    Right now you can find Chanel N5 Perfume at Saks Fifth Avenue, prices range from $95 to $260

    Described on Saks as a Aldehydic floral. A bouquet of abstract flowers with an indefinable femininity. Launches with bewitching notes of Ylang-Ylang and Neroli, then unfolds with Grasse Jasmine and May Rose. Sandalwood and Vanilla round out the fabled composition with unforgettable woody notes.

    My mom used to have a bottle of it... but she didn't really use it much so it just sat in the linen closet for years.

    I swear Coco Mademoiselle smells different on my mom, sister my aunt and I. I love the scent.... It's been my favorite since it was released a couple of years ago! As for No. 5, I've never been a fan.

    That's completely true perfumes smell different on different people. My best friend could wear a perfume and it was great, but not on me, its weird but we learned about that at school

    Chanel N°5 smells more aldehydic than floral on me but, as with all perfumes, it does smell different on different people. It used to be advertised with the slogan "Just a drop of N°5" due to its well-known strength. The more recently released version, Chanel No. 5 Eau Premiere, is a softer interpretation of the classic. However, I think the "Just a drop" still holds true.

    I agree with you, if you apply only a little bit is not that bad in my opinion. I dont own it tho but mom does.

    How funny, mom had one too and she used it all the time when I was growing up and way before I knew what channel was. She owns 0 designer shoes or bags but she always buys creams and expensive perfumes. It does smell a little strong but I think the reason I like it is because reminds me of my mother
