My sample of this is too small to allow me to describe it adequately, but I can say this: No. 46 is clearly a "Chanel" scent. It has some of the warm fullness of No. 5, some of the duskiness of No. 22, a fruity quality that I associate with Bois des Isles, and it held fast to my wrists for about three hours before fading to a quiet murmur. Would I buy a full size bottle of this scent if such a thing were possible? Probably not -- I am much more enamored of other Chanel offerings that actually are in production. But I still enjoyed being able to experience it, however fleetingly.
