Fragrances - CHANEL - No. 22

Created with Sketch.


A gem of a perfume, the most exquisite, delicate, and feminine fragrance I've ever worn.
I was in Paris at the Galeries Lafayette a year ago with the purpose of buying Sycomore, BUT I happened to smell N°22 and things took a different course: I had to have it !
I love it because it reminds me of Chanel 5 with something smoother and more refined about it.
So I bought the 75ml …

Fragrances - Frederic Malle - Le Parfum de Therese
