Chanel No 5
Suits: The classic, elegant and feminine woman.
Feels like: The essence of femininity.
Created in 1921, Chanel No 5 is still the world’s most iconic fragrance, with a bottle sold worldwide every 30 seconds.
This woody-floral fragrance is a highly complex blend of aldehydes and florals.
It opens with a burst of aldehydes which create a unique presence in this iconic fragrance as well as a crisp sparkle from the bergamot, lemon, neroli and ylang-ylang.
The top notes mingle so elegantly with the heart notes of May Rose and Jasmine which bring elegant and floral femininity to Chanel No 5, before the base notes of sandalwood and vanilla leave an incredibly sensual trail. Marilyn Monroe famously once said that the only thing she wears to bed is Chanel No 5.
