My Chanel perfume collection

Hi all!!!!

I sooooo apologize for not blogging lately.  I have been grinding out content on my YouTube channel (pjacksone).

I have been an avid Chanel fan as of late.  I have been tired of smelling like only roses or only flowers or just flowers and amber. I’m tired of flat scents with only 2 or 3 facets to them.  The Chanel fragrances are very complex and sophisticated.  When you wear them you have to allow them to breathe and warm up on your skin.  What it smells like in the bottle is going to be different than how it smells on a card.  It will also smell different on your skin than what it smells like on the card so you must try them out before buying.

So, I went to Ulta recently and bought Chanel No. 5 Eau Premier and Chanel Coco.  I also got 2 samples of Chanel No. 5 L’Eau.


I want to start going to the Macy’s Chanel counter from now on or Nordstrom to get the personalized experience from the sales associates.  A great sales associate can really lead and guide you into the perfect perfume buying experience AND you get samples!!!!

Chanel No. 5 Eau Premier notes: jasmine (from Chanel’s own fields), rose absolute, ylang-ylang, sandalwood, vanilla and vetiver.  It’s similar to the original without the suffocating punch. You get the powdery fragrance without the heaviness.

Chanel Coco notes: coriander, mandarin orange, peach, jasmine, Bulgarian rose, mimosa, cloves, orange blossom, clover, rose, amber, sandalwood, tonka bean and vanilla.  Yikes, that’s a lot. But this is why I said that the fragrance needs to develop over time and how sophisticated it is.

Chanel No.5 L’Eau notes: lemon, mandarin orange, neroli, rose, ylang-ylang, jasmine, cedar and white musk.  This is another great fragrance to try if you are trying to work your way up to the original No. 5 fragrance without the heaviness of the original.

I plan to get the original No. 5 next and Coco Noir.  Valentine’s Day is around the corner and I want to let hubby get me the original No. 5 for a gift.  I do feel that I need to get a sample and wear it for a few days first so I can get accustomed to the smell and give the scent time to transform before purchasing.

Have you tried any Chanel scents? Do you have a collection? Let me know what you like and don’t like or what you think I should buy next.
