Coco Chanel used to spray Chanel perfume around her fitting rooms. It’s a trick that fashion houses still use because it lifts the mood of the client.

Chanel perfume is so distinctive it can be sold without even a shot of the bottle on the advertisements. Its adverts are tiny films designed to flatter the actress as much as the product.

Chanel perfumes are an acquired taste. You need to test them before you buy. some will suit you, some won’t, and one will be the ideal fragrance for you.

If you find Chanel No 5 too heavy and distinctive then try one of the other Chanel perfumes. Chanel Chance has a younger, lighter fragrance. It is sweet and floral, yet spicy at the same time.
