Summary: I was trying some scents at Douglas (perfume shop in Holland) and as I walked by the Chanel counter I decided to test Chanel 5 EDP, EDT and Premiere. The last time I have smelled Chanel 5 was maybe 30 years ago. Here the advertise says: "Chanel the one" and so was my feeling for this scent.
Summary: Ok, it's not that I'm not discerning or just can't afford it. I just don't find No. 5 THAT appealing. I like aldehydes but not in mass like this. Why would I pay that much for a frag that I think is just so-so? I probably wouldn't even use it much as is, I would layer it.
Summary: Although I am a man, I absolutely love this fragrance!! It works very well with the chemistry of my skin. The scent is rich and the bottle, packaging, and campaigns are very beautiful. Maybe the scent is too feminine for a man but I can handle with that.
Summary: Reformulated or not, this perfume was, is and always will be, a stunning classic fragrance. As someone who is an absolutely dedicated Chanel fan, I can honestly say that this perfume is the same as it was.
Summary: I will always love this divine fragrance...in theory, that is...and what remains in my memories... I have both the pure perfume and the EDP and even with layering them, the scent no longer lasts longer than hour. It's criminal. I have a cologne No.
Summary: My review got removed too :( Maybe my wording was offensive to the no 5 lovers? Let me try to share my experience with this scent. According to the reviews here and the history the perfume has and people always saying that this is a classic I expected something mind blowing and amazing.
Summary: Yes, this attitude definitely should apply to those who love and hate No.5 or any scent for that matter. It's also true that those who love it are more likely to troll through the reviews picking on negative reviews to protect it. Not everyone mind you but it does happen.
Summary: I don't have any problems with "Negative" reviews. All I ask is make sure it is a review, and not just some random rude remark/comment. To say something smells "old" to you is fine. But then you need to explain yourself as to why you feel that way, not just leave it at that. Edit.
Summary: I think fragrantica should adopt a plus and minus system and only remove obviously offensive content. By having too many thumbs down a review will be removed from the other reviews and I think that's a little tough.
Summary: Look I'm sorry if I offended anyone, that was not my intention. I just wanted to give my opinion as a young guy. I got mad because my former review was deleted in which I stated that to me it smells like soap for men.
