Chanel No. 5
Rose, jasmine, lily and iris layering over a warm, woody base of vetiver, sandalwood, vanilla and amber—Chanel No. 5 “smells like a ‘composition’ rather than any single flower.” Its depth and complexity speak for stronger and more independent female figures, thus provides me with support and encouragement. However, No. 5 is too classic that it sometimes blurs the boundary between effortless chic and laziness, especially for people who are not willing to spend time selecting/exploring perfumes.
The previous reviewer explained the timelessness of the product by telling the story behind, which contributes to the success of most of the perfumes.
Original review post title: What I Got: Chanel No 5
House of Chanel, the Parisian based fashion house, is the most recognized name in the world of haute couture. Chanel No 5, the first and most famous of its perfumes, is packaged in a distinctive flask-like bottle. Both the scent and its packaging are known worldwide and continue to endure as faces for the classic brand whose scent Marilyn Monroe allegedly never slept without. Timeless = Desirable
