Cold Weather Gluttony Part Two: Chanel No. 5
Not because I actually like it. I don't like it. But there are other classic fragrances that are slowly growing on me, and I'm becoming increasingly convinced that someday I will like it. And when that day comes, will it still be any good? Shouldn't I buy it now?
Now, I realize that this dangerous train of logic could apply to a hundred different perfumes. But this is, y'know, Chanel No. 5. It's that perfume. Shouldn't I have it? Shouldn't I be working on learning to appreciate it, just as I'm working on learning to appreciate Mitsouko and Coco? Shouldn't I?
Or is this just tying into that winter gluttony thing?
Ignoring my sanity level, are any of the currently available No. 5 concentrations any good? Extrait? EDT? Am I right to feel dubious about the EDP, or is that just from my experience with the No. 19 EDP?
Advise me or stop me. Take your pick.
