Chanel 5 Where To Buy
There are several theories as to where the name "No.5" came from. One is that Coco chose the fifth sample Ernest presented to her, while others say five was her lucky number or a nod to her astrology sign, Leo (the fifth of the zodiac).

Naturally, with imitations becoming increasingly more sophisticated, no doubt there will be rare instances where a fake bag can slip through the net. However, many of these sites have a return policy with 100% money back promise if the product turns out to be a counterfeit. This should give some peace of mind to anyone concerned about spending a fortune on a replica bag. [Back to menu]
This is exactly where I got caught out. My vintage Chanel bag was clearly pre-owned by a smoker and it never crossed my mind to ask the seller if the bag smelled of cigarettes. It took me forever to get rid of the scent which involved not only having the bag professionally cleaned but also having it stuffed for a long time with quite pungent rose soap bars. Now the bag suffers from a strong soapy smell but at least it is some improvement on the smell of cigarettes!
Even the individual notes selected for the blend are manipulated in a way that is far from ordinary. The top notes stem from the native Philippines flower, ylang-ylang, whose petals are distilled with steam in order to obtain the purest essential oils to ensure a heady smooth top note. There's notes of Rose Centrifolia (or May Rose), a special flower which only blooms once a year for a period of three weeks in May. It's picked from the only place in the world where it was grown during the 20th century, Grasse on the French Riviera, adding to the rarity and enchanting nature of the note. Then there's jasmine. An ingredient that Gabrielle herself coined the most luxurious natural perfume raw material in the world. The unique note takes on a different tone depending on its environment, making it pull a little differently on everyone woman who wears it, once again adding to the addicting and alluring nature of this iconic scent.
*** I wasn't sure where else I could put this strange and fabulous quote, so I decided to put it here. This is the divalicious Diana Vreeland on Coco Chanel: "She was a peasant and a genius. Peasants and geniuses are the only people who count, and she was both." Ha! Talk about a backhanded compliment. Anyone care to parse this one for me?
I have a relatively recent iteration of No 5 parfum, and an older one, vintage unknown. It has 'perfume' on the label and not parfum, and I seem to recall reading somewhere that Chanel did this for a while for the American market? I love them both. But on my skin they are very fleeting. I was astounded and disappointed in both cases to find that they both last only about an hour. Can parfum lose its potency? I would not have thought so, so it must be just me. My parfum of No 19 is also rather fleeting. Shalimar parfum, on the other hand, lasts all day.
Last summer I cast about on ebay for a bottle of parfum to give her, since she hadn't had any No. 5 for years. I won an auction for a very-slightly-used 1 oz bottle, still in its double box. When the box arrived, I could tell that the packaging was quite old: matte cardboard, not glossy, and rather yellow, with the Chanel name *engraved* - not printed or embossed, it's actually cut into the cardboard. I'd also been hearing horror stories of people buying No. 5 parfum on ebay and being fobbed off with edc in old bottles, so I opened the bottle and slapped on two healthy dabs, thinking, "Well, this smells quite faint - where are the aldehydes?" Half an hour later I was in utter heaven. The florals pop, the base is warm and musky and full of real sandalwood - and I understood what a wonder this thing really is.
Unlike the other four analogue British television channels, the channel could not be received via analogue terrestrial broadcasts in many areas, including some parts of the south coast of England where the signal would otherwise interfere with signals from television stations in France; many areas of North East England, especially around the major Tyne & Wear conurbation; many areas in Scotland; most of Wales, most of Northern Ireland and parts of Cumbria. The channel is available on all digital platforms (Freesat, Sky satellite, IPTV and Freeview digital terrestrial, and also most cable operators). On 5 November 2008, the channel launched on digital satellite service Freesat, on the Astra 28.2E satellites.
The lingering scent of Chanel Chance Eau de Toilette Spray transports me back to a wonderful holiday in the Maldives, where I had worn this fragrance. When I smell it now, it smells like love, excitement and new adventure, and it has such a beautiful and dreamy effect on me.
Eau de Toilette - is the least concentrated formula and therefore results in a lighter, fresher version of your favourite scent. This works well for settings where you may be concerned people in close proximity (e.g. an aeroplane) and can last up to 6 hours. 041b061a72
