I've wanted Chanel perfume since about 7th grade when I read The Clique series. My favorite character, Massie Block, swore by this perfume and I had always wanted to buy it. About 6 years later I finally got it!
Every couple years I like to go all in and purchase an expensive perfume to "treat" myself to. This year that perfume was Chanel No. 5 L'EAU. I usually go for light scents, but I really wanted a mature scent. I RARELY wear this, I keep it as my "special occasion" perfume.
I'm awful at describing scents, so I took the description from the Chanel website so you can get an idea of what it smells like (although I wish you guys could smell it yourselves!!).
Composed by Chanel perfumer Olivier Polge, N°5 L’EAU features dynamic, crisp top notes of Lemon, Mandarin and Orange that reveal lightheartedness and transparency. The emblematic heart of the bouquet unfolds with Rose, Jasmine and a new fraction of Ylang Ylang, more modern than ever. Behind this floral whirlwind lies an unprecedented sense of liveliness: the vibrant echo of Cedar, accompanied by soft and cottony Musk notes.
This perfume can be bought at a multitude of places! You can purchase it from the Chanel store itself, order it online, or shop for it at Dillard's or Macy's. Since this is a pretty pricey perfume, I recommend trying it out before you buy it. Perfume smells differently on everyone, so wearing it for a day before purchasing would make you a smart cookie! I personally LOVE this scent (duh) and think it's worth every penny!
