My initial thought when I smelled this is that it smelled like my grandmother. I never liked the smell in the tester until I actually put it on my skin. Now I am ADDICTED! It warms up on your skin and turns sexy sweet. No wonder women for years have been using it. I love it and wear it all of the time now and have got many compliments!

First, i got few samples while i brought No. 19. After trying couple small samples, I totally addicted it. Although I have been using Eternity for more than 10 years, I LOVE THIS ONE.Usually I don't like powery smell, except this one. I totally Love the base-note, very graceful. Will buy again for sure.UPDATE:Personally I like to use EDP (or EDT) for daily and pure perfume for the big night out.

Truly one of my holy grail perfumes. I have this in the EDP and the sensual elixir which is a gel formula. I like them both. I also have this in the body powder (fantastic) and velvet cream bath. I think it's the height of sophistication and I never ever tire of it. I received one of the highest compliments ever in my entire life regarding this fragrance from an elegant lady I've always looked up to. This is a must try for every woman looking for a new scent. I think everyone should own at least one bottle of this in their lifetime because it's so special.

I remember saving up to give this perfume to my mom one Christmas. It was something that she wouldn't buy herself, given the expense. She had this tiny bottle of true perfume that my Dad had given her on their first anniversary sitting on its altar (her tall wooden jewelry box that sat on her dresser) with just a few drops left after twenty years. She almost cried when I gave this to her. She just thought that one spray elevated a lower middle class woman from rural Ohio to a Fifth Avenue grand dame. I think she was right.

I like how Thisbe describe this perfume. I agree with her that some women here really go overboard when they dislike a perfume. Same thing with Thierry Mugler's Angel. When they don't like it, they discribe it as cat's pee, or burning pine. Well, this perfume probably smells like that on those women but I don't think they smell like that on and to everybody. I like Chanel No.5. I don't think it smells like a grandma at all. I think it's a very strong but feminine scent. I have a gay friend who wears this every day and even on him it smells delicious. I have the EDP, and I only use this on a special occasion because it's a treasure.

I agree...this scent isn't for everyone. I have worn it for 10 years now and STILL love it. It is my standard Fall/Winter scent. Incidentally, I am 32 years old. I definately don't find it mature smelling...just sophisticated.

Ladies no need to get angry! Chanel #5 is not for everyone, myself included. I think most of us have smelled this on someone older ie. Grandma or Mom. That's why we feel it smells more mature. It takes a certain women to pull this fragrance off. I prefer softer fragrances like Marc Jacobs. But let's face it, Chanel #5 must have something special it's been around for a long time.Overall a strong statement perfume, if that's what your looking for.

So this is an unspoken tradition for us gals. Reading other reviews, I laughed because this too was a gift from my mother--- and she bought it for me because her mother wore it all the time. I like the smell everynow and then. Its a very comforting winter/spring scent - too heavy for the dog days of summer! Its DOES have a strong powdery scent, which usually doesn't work well with me- however chanel No 5 didnt seem to have that effect. Its a parfume that everyone should try once!

Whether you love it whether you hate it, this is probably the best known-of perfume in the world. I do love it myself but I don't wear it because I have smelled it for just about my whole entire life and I don't feel right with it on and it makes me feel like I'm just borrowing some of it. Chanel No. 5 is what Momma has just about always had. She never did wear it much because it was so expensive and when I was little we were poor on account of Daddy being so sick so she made everything last for as long as she could. He tried to keep a bottle of it for her though and I think he loved it more than she did, he said he had to go all the way to Atlanta to buy it and that was back before they fixed the highway and it took you a long time back then to get to Atlanta, not like now. Momma has just here lately started to want more perfumes on account of me waving so much under her nose but she likes just about all of them which could be a good thing or it could be a bad thing depending on how much she puts on of what. Anyways she said that the first time she ever smelled Chanel No. 5 was back when she was in high school and one of her teachers had just got out of college? This teacher's daddy liked to give her a lot of money because he wanted her to come on home and she had just about everything she could want, prettier clothes than anybody else with jewelry and perfume and this little red convertible car, she taught school for just one year and then she went off and got married and went on back home to Atlanta. When she walked by all of the boys just about fell over because she was so pretty and she smelled so good and everybody was a little bit in love with her, Momma said that everybody liked her and she was a good teacher too. That was when Momma and Daddy started dating and Momma was a senior, Daddy was older than she was. On the last day of school before graduation that teacher brought bags of stuff and give it to all of the girls, what she give Momma was about a half of a bottle of Chanel No. 5 and some lipsticks and some bottles of lotion and that was when Momma first got it, she had not ever had something like that before. I can't even start to say what it smells like, these other people are good at that but it always makes me think about how much my Daddy loved my Momma. I think it's a good advertisement for aldehydes too. Chanel No. 5 will last and last and if you get it on your coat collar it will still be there next year and it will still smell just as good, it's real special and somebody will always tell you that you smell good.

Heaven in a bottle. my first memories of my mother include No 5. she gave me my first bottle in elementary school and, while other perfumes also sit on my dresser, no 5 is a mainstay. long before he knew what i wore, my first college boyfriend would close his eyes and just inhale the fragrance. he even found me in the library by sniffing and years later still identified the scent with me. i wear it to bed, to work, to the gym, to casual events, to glamorous events. while it is likely the most popular and recognizeable fragrance in the world, no 5 will always be my own.
