It is said that the famous creator drew his inspiration for creation of this fragrance from one of his visits to the Arctic Circle and the smell of water in midnight.

The unique smell of frozen lakes and rivers fascinated him so much that he decided to replicate it in his creation.

It is hard to describe as I really can't pick single flower notes, only the aldehydes in the beginning and then something really beautiful, warm and alluring in the following hours. It has to be a skin scent, something that only people very close to you can perceive, other than that it can be obnoxious and repel people, especially men.

In his formula the aldehydes are accompanied by fragrances of rose and jasmine.

The fragrance of aldehydes is pure and fresh, reminds of the odor of clean linen just brought in the house form the fresh frosty air.

On me it smells like vanilla(cozy), little bit of a baby powder, some type of flowers(deff not a rose), really light scent but sooo cozy, I only wear it during fall and winter, for summer its just too much, haven't tried during spring time.

I like it, I enjoy the strictly " perfume" smell...purposely made not to be food like, or floral or even spicy or resinous.

Chanel N°5 is often connected to her name because during an interview in 1954 she said that in bed she wore only ‘some drops of Chanel N°5'. Superstitious, Chanel presented her new perfume on the fifth day of the fifth month of 1921.

That statement became a superb advertising slogan and a reason for millions of women around the world to choose this perfume. Ernest Beaux created two series of perfume samples numbered 1-5 and 20-24 and asked Coco Chanel to choose one of them. Working on creation of this perfume, Ernest Beaux created and for the first time used the synthetic component – aldehydes.

This revelation made me understand that N5 was that kind of perfumes that depend a lot on your chemistry and chemistry changes among people and it changes along the years, sometimes of days.

The second step to appreciation was ten years ago when the first Eau Premiere came out.

The first Chanel N°5 was captured in a simple rectangular bottle with the top which resembled Place Vendome in Paris.
