Les Exclusifs de Chanel Have Landed
The high-pitched, eardrums-shuttering sound you heard outside? That was me, squealing in delight. The wonderful friend made it possible for me to test the new Chanels by gifting me a set of miniatures. May the Perfume Gods grant her every wish!
On the very, very first sniff, my immediate favorite was, surprisingly!, No 18, an ethereal, shimmering, indescribable scent with an unexpectedly animalic undertone. 31 Rue Cambon was close second, smelling gorgeous, warm and very "Chanel". I also loved the green Bel Respiro. After reading Ina's review on Aromascope, I expected to fall head over heels in love with Coromandel, but so far it leaves me cold, as do 28 la Pausa and Eau de Cologne, however, as I said, I only had a chance to test them briefly and am too ecstatic to even think straight right now.
I will review No 18 on Thursday. Tomorrow, please tune in for Mr. Colombina's Valentine's Day musings.
The image of the miniatures is mine.
