Beauty Product Challenge :day 2 Chanel No5 Eau Premiere
The photo abovie is the Chanel Headquarters in Paris in the Place Vendome. The city of Paris pays homage to Coco Chanel and the elite beauty she brought to their city. Everyone (even little children) know who she is and know of her products. You can tour one of her apartments in Paris -although this can be terribly touristy, it is still very neat.
Back to the Eau Premiere....as I said earlier I have always appreciated Chanel No5, but I have never truly loved it in the way that you long to smell a fragrance and wish to wear a fragrance. I just could not get over the aldehydes. Aldehydes do not agree with me, no matter how hard I try. Aldehydes give me a headache. I appreciate the glory of a fragrance from a bygone era, but pass the Excedrin Migraine-please.
The new Eau Premiere has all the glory and none of the aldehydes. It is fresh and crisp without smelling nuovo generic, or "young". I hate using the terms "young" or "old" to describe fragrance, but I cannot help but catergorize certain scents as "youngish". I know no better adjetive to describe all the new sickening sweet candy type scents. Some of them are nice, but all of them smell "youthful". Do not get me wrong, Chanel No5 Eau Premiere does not smell old, but rather very sophisticated, fresh and lovely. The drydown is soft and powdery with just the right amount of warm lemon. A touch of sweetness (just a touch) rounds it out to be one of my favorite fragrances this fall. I love it.
Chanle No5 Eau Premiere can be found at Saks Fifth Avenue.
Have a classic day!
