Love to experiment with new and rare Chanel scents!
29 November 2013
Summary: My mother started me on Chanel No. 5 when I was a child. I would sneak into her cupboards to smell it. As I got older, I still love Chanel but wanted to experiment with the other scents. I received a sample of No. 19 and realized it was my favourite Chanel scent!
Summary: The arrival in the last few years of White Musks in fragrances provides me with a target for derision ... I can't stand the stuff, however "new and interesting" perfumers (like Sheldrake) are finding them. Sure ... if you want to smell like a basket of newly washed laundry then I guess it's OK.
Summary: No. 19 Poudre is reminiscent of all the Prada Infusion d'Iris fragrances, but what it reminds me of even more so is Chloe Eau de Fleurs Capucine. The galbanum & neroli, which are shared by both fragrances is what struck a memory of the Capucine. Jasmine also plays a leading role in both scents.
Summary: I was given this yesterday as a gift. (New) I don't want to seem ungrateful for it was a lovely thing to do. However Poudre being on the label should really be enough to put you on guard that it is powder light, as someone said before within half an hour even if that the fragrance has gone.
Summary: I ordered this a month before my wifes birthday and when it didn't arrive i asked for proof of delivery the claim to have sent a replacement but that never appeared either so the refunded my money.
Summary: This is the less serious baby of the Chanel family. It's very light and not as "in your face" as some of the other more established Chanels. You probably still wouldn't give this to a teenager as present.
