Chanel No. 5 parfum

Since Coco Chanel introduced Chanel No.5 in 1921, other fashion designers have also launched their own perfumes successfully. Perfumes, much like accessories, are an extension of their fashion line. To some, your outfit is not complete without the right perfume to complement it. I enjoy wearing perfume; the right scent makes me feel good inside.  It’s a bit glamorous to leave a delectable scent as you walk by, but don’t put on too much!

Marc Jacobs has Daisy, Calvin Klein has Eternity, Donna Karan has DKNY, Dolce & Gabbana has The One, DVF has Tatiana, YSL has Opium, Oscar de la Renta has Oscar, and the list goes on…

Perfume, eau de parfum, eau de toilette (I never liked that name!), eau de cologne are all different concentrations of perfume oil, listed in descending order of concentration. That difference shows up in the prices with perfume as the most expensive version of a particular fragrance and eau de cologne the least.

If you can afford it and have found a scent that is ‘you’ or that you love, invest in the perfume and layer up with the fragrance’s body lotion or body powder to extend the scent to your whole body. If you can’t, find the option that is in your budget and, especially around Christmastime or Mother’s Day, there tends to be special gift versions available that are an affordable great deal.

Have you ever purchased a fashion designer’s fragrance?  If yes, which one?  If not, why not?
