I remember being a little girl, and playing dress up with my mother's high heels, and beautiful Halston scarves, and beautiful antique pearls. But NEVER....and I mean NEVER....was I to touch the PERFUME. This would result in my 3 middle names surfacing in the middle of my glamorous make-believe stint as a glamorous movie star in a 4 year old's body... (this didn't even happen the time I got caught in the bathtub putting my mom's blush and lipstick on my Barbies and My Little Ponies!)
My lovely mother was, and still is, a passionate and loyal lover of the House of Coco Chanel.
Which meant I most likely wouldn't walk into a house smelling of fresh baked cookies after school. ....Well, on the off chance that I did...it was usually masked by the fragrant and familiar aroma of Chanel No. 5.
Classic, sophisitcated and the epitomy of luxury, Chanel No. 5 will always remind of simple style.
Nowadays, My mom has cooled her jets and now gladly shares the Chanel!
Meanwhile, Chanel is now glad to share some amazing twists on the original. Here are a few of our favs!
Chanel No. 5 Velvet Body Cream: ($75)
Goes on smoothly while infused with a slight floral hint. Chanel's answer to the perfect mix between moisturizer and fragrance.
Chanel No. 5 Eau Premeire: ($125 for 5 .oz) New experience for the new generation of Chanel Lovers. A lighter version of the original, created by Jacques Polge, who created the original back in 1986.
