Chanel No. 5

“Legendary perfume lives up to its great reputation”

Written on: 25/04/2013

I don't understand why there are so many resenting this lovely, timeless perfume. I really love it!! I am 20 years old, but I still think I pull it off very well, and I love the smell, too. It comes in an elegant box, and it's something I'm not afraid to show off at the front of my shelf in my bathroom. I want everybody to see I wear Chanel No5. I must admit I was a bit suspicious about it at first because of reading so many negative reviews, and didn't know if I should order it or not. But… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/03/2010 by NEWREVIEWQUEEN (30 reviews written)

This scent is extremely pungent and can become overbearing with two to three sprays. I would say it is delightful as one sparing spray at the start of the day and no top up would be advised. It can be described as a very classic, sophisticated and antique smell… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/02/2010 by Btflrace (1 review written)

My husband bought Channel No 5 Eau De Parfum 100ml for me as a 2009 Xmas present. I could not believe such an awful, pungent smell could be produced by a well known name as Channel. Initial I thought he got me a fake version but he confirmed that he bought it over the counter at Boot's for £78. It's the worst smelling perfume I've ever come accross, surely it can't be the same Channel No 5 that the other Reviewers have given 5 stars for. I would have given no star for it if the system had… Read Full Review

I have been wearing Chanel no. 5, most days for over 40 years and I loved it!!I recently purchased my usual 100gr. bottle of Eau de Perfum and shock horror - it smells awful! they have completely changed it. It just doesn't smell anything like it used to. I even went back to the Debenhams store I purchased it from to smell the tester. This was the same ! i don't know what to do because I hate it and I'm devastated!… Read Full Review

Millstoneno5's Response to gavallack's Review

Written on: 07/03/2014

I am in agreement with you! I have used no 5 for nearly 50 years and having recently been given a new perfum spray bought from Debenhams, not Eau de Perfum, I am so dissapointed that I would like to complain to Chanel but so far have been unable to find a contact number

Written on: 06/02/2009 by reviewshopsales (1 review written)

Marilyn Monroe once declared that it was the only thing she wore in bed. There was never a Chanel No .1, 2, 3 or 4. Since its debut it is considered to be one of life's sensual luxuries.
This ultimate, feminine scent combines a blend of neroli and ylang ylang, with basenotes of sandlewood, vetiver and vanilla to create simply the most sensual fragrance know to all women and yet belonging to each individual… Read Full Review

“I just love Chanel No 5. I have been wearing it for...”

Written on: 23/11/2008 by Croi (1 review written)

I just love Chanel No 5. I have been wearing it for some 20 years now and I still enjoy the moment I take that beautiful bottle in my hand and spray it on. For me it is one of life's great pleasures. I would agree it either suits you or it doesn't. I just love it and can't count how often it has been complimented, and even if it wasn't it's more about the pleasure I get from wearing it.

I am just back from a trip to New York (fabulous city), and in Bloomingdales they got me to try 'a new'… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/10/2005 by sc1234 (7 reviews written)

""I want to give women an artificial perfume," said Chanel. "Yes, I really do mean artificial, like a dress, something that has been made. I don't want any Rose or Lily of the Valley, I want a perfume that is a composition." For the first time, large quantities of aldehyde's, synthetic substances were used in perfume to lighten the heady flower notes, and to raise their sensuality toward refined seduction.""

I did a report on the famous designer Chanel and her history, and while doing it I… Read Full Review

If they sold it at Walmart, it would not be special. Chanel No 5 is definitely "high end", just like Coach handbags, and they would lose their allure if they were sold at Walmart.
