i spent about 12 years wearing chanel no. 5 every single day. i flirted with other perfumes but i always returned to it. i was devoted, faithful. i never liked the way any other perfume smelled on me and although i didn't particularly like the way chanel smelled in the bottle or on other people, it was perfect on me.
i ran out of chanel almost 2 years ago and never quite got around to replacing it. i've bounced from scent to scent ever since. my latest obsession is black pheonix alchemy lab. there are hundreds of scents and i want to try every single one. and the good news, they send a ton of samples with each order.
my current favorite is "i died for beauty" - its described on their website as "the Venusian splendor of ylang ylang and violet stirred by hyssop, frankincense and grave loam." its lovely.
sorry chanel, i think you've been replaced.
