Winter Perfume II

Posted on: January 30, 2010

The second perfume for the winter season is Chanel No. 5 Eau Première.

I like an analogy for Eau Première compared with the timeless classic Chanel N0.5 Eau de Parfum: If Eau de Parfum is a painting by Andy Warhol, then Eau Première is a painting by Renoir.

CHANEL No. 5 Eau Première

The company claims Eau Première is a lighter, fresher, and softer interpretation of Eau de Parfum. If you have a boyfriend/husband/brother who doesn’t understand the legendary history behind Chanel No. 5 and refer to it as the “old lady’s perfume” whenever you wear it, then you can get Eau Première to shut them up. Yes. It is definitely a younger, prettier scent.

Eau Première still has the signature powdery scent from Eau de Parfum, it keeps the essence of No. 5 such as neroli, rose, jasmine, ylang ylang, amber, vetiver, and sandlewood. I have both Eau de Parfum and Eau Première, Eau de Parfum was a gift that I cherish so much and only wear it on very special occasions; I bought Eau Première as a gift but ended up getting myself one. Eau Première lasts as long as Eau de Parfum. Because it is not as strong as the classic, it is never too overwhelming.

The perfume itself is a lighter color, almost like a bottle of Chardonnay, while Eau de Parfum is like a fine bottle of whisky.

What more can I say about this scent? Go to a Chanel counter and discover it yourself.

Hmm, Internet can not deliver the smell.

I know…:( too bad the Internet can’t do that. But you can always go to to the Chanel counter/Sephora to test it out 🙂

why this one and the Anna Sui are both full bottle? How many sprays do u use every time? Or you have too many bottles of perfume so each is only used a little? You’ve seen my collection on my blog, and all of them have been used at least half bottle…lol…

Haha, I mix Anna Sui with other fragrances. This one is new to my collection. You will see some half-bottled ones as I introduce more 🙂
