Summary: I love this perfume. No perfume that I know of is better than this one. Only one is as good as, No.5, but I prefer Coco. Its very warm and cozy, makes me think of spicy sweets by the fireside. It makes me feel at home, safe. People say that Coco is strong and you have to spray it sparingly, but for me, and maybe only for me, I feel it very softly, almost barely there, I don't think it's strong.
Summary: Coco Chanel can be worn by all age groups. I wore this in my 20's bought another bottle in my 40's and it still stays with me all day and smells great. I know of a lady in her 50's that wears it too.
Summary: I would label this my "signature scent". I have been wearing it since it it was launched (re-launched?) in 1984. It has an almost oriental floral fragrance when you first put it on which fades to a warm, powdery, spicy-sweet scent on your skin. I generally purchase the 50 ml EDP spray which costs about $104 CAN and lasts several months to up to a year. It's worth it!
Summary: Review for the EDT. I absolutely love this one! A warm, spicy, sensual oriental. I love how this smells. In fact I actually think this is unisex. Cloves, Spices, Amber, dark resins, creamy sandalwood, I can see this totally working on a man. I also see this much in the same way that I would something by Serge Lutens (whose perfumes are very rich and heady and are inspired by Morocco).
Summary: It took me a little while to appreciate this beautiful fragrance and to learn the correct quantity to spray on for different situations and times. For normal day wear I need to get the shortest spray burst of droplets, its a very economical day fragrance but for night use more with a good few sprays. Its warm, leathery and very long lasting and everyone says that I smell so exotic when I wear it.
Summary: My favourite of all! Also my boyfriend's favourite. I'm 18 and he's 26. (First of all I don't appreciate when people use "grandma" to describe a perfume, like it's a bad thing, it's rude and you just seem narrow minded and ignorant. I also don't think perfume has an age limit at all, stop that.) I own both the vintage and current version and honestly I can't feel that much of a difference.
Summary: This is another one I had to wear a couple of times in order to appreciate. My goodness, it is strong. I had a little tester leakage get on me, and now I can smell it without bringing my hand to my nose. Beautiful! Very warm and inviting. If I put my nose to it, I smell the amber, cloves, and sandalwood. If I wait for a waft to come over me, I really smell the rose in it. It's very complex, and very well blended! It is heavy enough that I feel it's best saved for winter.
Summary: You can't argue with top-of-the-line quality. Chanel is reliable and delivers predictable outcomes, very classy. This was first introduced to me by my mom's friend, who sold Avon. I was only about 16 but I was enamored. My mother gave me both a bottle of Cristalle and Coco. I kept them, actually, until I was old enough to wear them. (I'm still waiting because I'm only 30 and these are definitely scents better designed for someone at least 35.
