Review: Chanel N°5 L’Eau and Gold Fragments

Any strangers to Chanel N°5 here? What about Chanel N°5 L’Eau? To me, it is an understated fragrance that smells citrusy and powdery at the same time. N°5 L’Eau has citrus, ylang-ylang, cedar and white musk notes while N°5 has a more floral bouquet of May Rose and Jasmine. Both are easy on my nose, and that’s saying a lot since my nose acts up quite easily. Then again, fragrances are very personal, so what may be pleasant to me might just be fart bombs to you.

 

Chanel No5 L'Eau purse spray set

 

Chanel has purse spray sets available for most of its scents, and it recently launched one for N°5 L’Eau EDT. The set (RM505) contains a 20ml twist and spray and 2 extra refills. In total, you get 60ml of N°5 L’Eau and a really cute travel friendly spray bottle. It has taken a permanent spot in my handbag since I received this, and it’s so convenient to just take it out to spray when I want to.

Another item I think is great for this holiday season is the N°5 gold fragments (RM385, 250ml). It is a shimmering N°5 scented body gel, accented with very delicate gold glitter. Just look at it shine. It is deliciously decadent!

Do you need it? Absolutely not. But would you want it? Oh, so so so tempting. If you are a party girl, then you will love this. Imagine spreading this over your bare shoulders and legs, wearing a sexy LBD. The glitters are not chunky and they glide on beautifully. The best thing is, they don’t stick all over your clothes! The Chanel N°5 Gold Fragments is not whimsical fairy dust or unicorn farts, but is class and elegance in liquid gold.

Does any of these 2 tickle your fancy? Chanel fragrances have never been wallet friendly, but they are classics. Now, let me just go get the bottle of N°5 Gold Fragments and lose myself in it. The sparkles are hypnotizing!

  • If I was in my 20s, single and ready to mingle then yes, I would be so tempted to get No5 Gold Fragments but now? I’m lucky if I go catch a movie at the cinema once a year! LOL!

      LOL! Same here. I know some who are lucky enough to have helpers at home who take care of their kids when they go partying.
      Then again, I was done partying when I finished uni!

      Yay! Does she like it? No5 L’Eau seems to be more popular here too I think.

        Can never go wrong with Chanel, according to the hubby. I have a growing collection of their fragrance each time he flies…
