Lately a lot of brands have been trying to make versions of their classic perfumes that appeal more to the modern young woman. That was the exactly the case with last week’s perfume of the week, "Scarlett by Cacharel", and certainly is the case with this week’s fragrance, Chanel 5 Eau Premiere Perfume by Chanel Eau Premiere Spray 5.0 Oz.
When asked about the Original Chanel no. 5, Marilyn Monroe stated that that perfume was all she wore to bed. Back in the 50’s that was quite a scandalous statement. A statement so scandalous that it instantly resulted in bottles selling out. Fast forward to today and you still find young women emulating the glamour, sexiness and hint of scandal, that was a trademark of Hollywood’s Golden Age. The Chanel 5 Eau Premiere Perfume by Chanel Eau Premiere does that while managing to adopt a fresh and modern touch. You might be asking just how are they able to do that through this fabled classic so many years after its debut? The easy way is by betting on one of the more modern versions of the classic that high-end brands have been launching.
Chanel 5 Eau Premiere borrowed the neroli, roses, jasmine, ylang ylang, amber, vetiver, and sandalwood notes from the original perfume, but emphasized more of the rose scent and added a little, tiny bit of vanilla-like scents. This made the perfume much fresher and slightly powdery, in a way that it can be worn during fall without seeming too heavy and warm, but it is still a solid and agreeable scent. Whereas the original Chanel no.5 is known to be overpowering a lot of the time, Eau Premiere is much softer and forgiving.
If you do decide to give this perfume a try, please remember to use it sparingly. It is still a strong fragrance and it lasts a long, long, long time. I don’t see an occasion when you’d need more than three drops of it to smell good all day long without leaving that trail of perfume around corridors or in the elevator. I’d love to hear from you and know if there is any perfume that you consider your staple fall perfume, leave your comments below. Fragrancez
