Oh Chanel, your very name evokes fashion couture and legendary fragrance. And nothing more so than that famous number; No. 5.
With all its marketing strategy and hype, No. 5 Sensual Elixir somehow managed to miss the mark, smelling not quite the same as the original formula, yet not different enough to be remarkable. Too bad because the smooth scented gel was a sensual delight. The gel concept and the way it melts into the skin still makes it a popular choice for those seeking a more wearable No. 5. Yet still, it's not quite right.
But where the elixir missed the mark, Eau Premiere is right on. A sexy contemporary version of this classic fragrance. Those old school, die hard original formula lovers won't budge an inch here, but then it's not meant to move them. This is created for the new legends. Turbulent, wild and fresh this is the fragrance that suits Nicole. It is vibrant and alive with sexy under currents that pull you in for a closer sniff.
Chanel No. 5 Eau Premiere is in limited release to Saks only right now. I'm hoping it will open with wider distribution soon as I have a gift certificate saved away and the $125 price tag is worth the wait.
