  • Summary: It took me years to purchase and appreciate this wonderful fragrance. I started sampling No 5 in my early thirties, and it wasn't until 34 that I really started to appreciate this. I never thought that this ever smelled old lady, but I could see how it might be too "mature" smelling for some, or possibly outdated.

  • Summary: Not everyone likes this. It's a classic, a first one with an extensive use of fatty aldehydes. The initial blast of it mixed with civet an ylang-ylang is what drives modern women away from it. It smells old fashioned and outdated to modern people who are bred to like soft florals, gourmands and perfumes with simple bases. Not for everyone, but still a masterpiece with its own personal story.

  • Summary: This would not work on younger girls. Too heavy, too powdery, too mature. This is definitely not a scent for everyone. Somehow it reminds of the sixties, literally. Chanel have since came out with more modern versions of this (eau premiere). Glad they saw the problem. For me, this just smells like a very expensive soap. Don't buy this because it is a classic, buy it because you like it.

  • Summary: I need to make something very clear. Unlike most fragrances that only vary the strength between the Eau de Parfum and Eau de Toilette, Chanel actually varies the notes in each strength. The Eau de Toilette version is a much sharper and harsher version. The Eau de Parfum is a much softer and more well rounded fragrance. It is absolutely lovely. That being said, it is definitely a fragrance for a women over 35.

  • Summary: I tried this perfume because my grandma gave it to me. Smelled just like her. I mean, it's not like it smells bad I just associate that smell with her. Maybe it's too.. sophisticated for my tastes.

  • Summary: I had tried and tried for years with Cn5 and it's only really in the last 5 years I have got on with it - and now I can honestly say I understand why it's held in such high regard. It's truly classy, mature, grown up, floral without being sweet and it's just one of those gorgeous, compelling frags that I love the smell of, especially when the heart and base notes emerge. I am very lucky and I have the edt, edp and pure parfum and love them all.

  • Summary: I salute all women under 40 who can pull this off. This, IMO, is the epitome of "perfume". It's not a scent, it's not a smell. It's perfume. I imagine this to be beautiful on the right skin (and the right person). But unfortunately this is not for me.

Excellent fragrance.

  • Summary: Chanel #5 outstanding product in the fragrance market. Has retained its standing from initial conception. This is my favorite and only perfume to be used on a daily basis. Scent is not overpowering and has excellent staying power. Do not even consider other fragrances when purchasing. The first time ever received was from my Dad on 16th birthday in 1965 and has retained its sentimental properties with me since. Comparison to other products is non-existent.
