I have four vintage Chanel No. 5 minis that came with some minis of Chanel for Men. I tried No.5 once and first impressions, well they were not favorable. I'm waiting a week or two to try it again as I almost never reject something on the first try.I started spraying Chanel #5 on for a couple days. Lovely stuff and the dry down is certainly unisex. But the wife said she couldnt have me smelling like both her and our daughter...so I guess that gives me the green light for some Bleu!
I experimented with the Eau de Parfum and the edt. Similar results for the most part. The blast out of the bottle is hyper floral mixed with bright sunshine. It’s like an exuberant blast out of Dizzy’s horn. Too much in my opinion, but an impressive and truly original olfactory experience nonetheless. This is no dime store juice.I have four vintage Chanel No. 5 minis that came with some minis of Chanel for Men. I tried No.5 once and first impressions, well they were not favorable.

I must be a snob, because I draw the line at American Car brands and Super Hero’s.
And you shouldn't be!!! I am one of those, who don't believe in scents having a gender / sex, are you aware, of how many women wear men's scents?! The most shockingly the past few years when it comes to that, is women found out, that their 50+$ foundation, wasn't as good as the 10$ Nivea Aftershave Balm, that i'm sure almost everyone on this forum owns, in at least one of Aftershaves, 99% of the reviews, are from females because of thatSo I stopped at a kiosk in the local mall with my son in tow. Tested a few fragrances which I liked and then the salesman placed one in front of me which was totally unique from the others and from “western” scents. The others are possible future purchases, but my son stated that this final option was what we would go home with. Gents, I have purchased a women’s fragrance and I’m not even ashamed.

The rosemary really stood out and the citrus is a bright sparkling citrus...gave me the feeling of being in a Mediterranean garden.
Feeling sharp is a state of mind. Looking sharp takes work.
