If there is one thing that gets me into a happy mood, it is Chanel. I remember my first trip into a Chanel store, it was pure bliss. I looked around in awe and landed my eyes from bag to bag. Anyway, I am not going to turn this into a childhood flashback but I will tell you about my most recent trip. Currently I have been wanting to pick up a new classy fragrance which led me to right into Chanel. The worker was kind enough to give me a few samples so I could test them out for a few days and then come back when I decide which one I like the most. Usually I am the type of person who just buys perfume on the spot, but every article I read always says to give it time to find the perfect one because the "smell changes over time" and "scents smell different on you compared to the testing papers". For the past three days, I have experimented with three different scents: Coco Noir, Chance, and (of course) N°5. I was generally familiar with N°5 and Chance, but I still decided to give them another test run.
Chanel Coco Noir- This scent is very elegant and I would not use it as an everyday scent, but more for special occasions. It is very warm and gives a nice appeal. It comes off as a little strong, but in a good way. It is a great change from the usual floral scent. Mystery is the main element found in Coco Noir. I think I may have to purchase this one!
Chanel Chance- Chance is a lovely scent that is perfect for summer. It is drastically different in comparison to its sister, Coco Noir. This one is more citrus/floral. It is a nice girl-next-door scent if you understand what I mean. Nothing seems to be out of the ordinary, just a pretty, floral perfume.
Chanel N°5- One of the most universally known scents since 1921. I love this perfume for its signature smell and classiness, but I wouldn't personally wear it often. It is very feminine and is long lasting for sure. High-standards and the Marilyn Monroe persona goes along with this strong scent and a little goes a long way.
My favorite out of the three had to be Coco Noir just because it is different than my usual signature scents and it seemed unique. The others were still lovely for sure. Are you a Chanel perfume addict?
