I use this since the 80's when it was sold only at some Chanel boutiques. It is my favorite fragrance, all times, all seasons. (Hate that nonsense of "summer this and winter that"!) Hope that...

This is such a rich, expansive, almost warm scent. Whenever I take a sniff of it I almost feel giddy. Like the Chanel no. 5 EDP, it has almost a sun-warmed element to it, like the tang of a...

I love this. It smells expensive, almost like the interior leather of a very expensive and rare car. It took me several wearings to fall in love with it. It has a smoky opening and it was almost...

LOVE LOVE LOVE CdR! Bought the giant size EdT when les exclusifs was launched, and the parfum extrait when Chanel relaunched it. What can I say, one sniff brings to mind the most beautiful,...

I got a large decant of this from TPC and have waited a year to review it, I've worn it maybe a dozen of times and sprayed it in the air a bit as well. I just can't bring myself to like it. I...
