Today I'm trying a sample of Champs Elysees and so far it smells great on me. Made in 1904 though I'm guessing it's reformulated, this is the oldest scent I've tried. I was struck right away with its crisp cheery edge. Not what I normally would think of as old fashioned.
(I think many older frags I've tried have gone bad and so really I should few expectations for "oldies." )
But this is good stuff! Clean, fun, polite, bright, sweet, sparkling,
Like many people, I have had a series of pets in my life. Some have been with me longer than others. At least I can take comfort in that none has ever complained that they didn't like my fragrances or the way I wore them.
Seriously, though... My first was a puppy I was given as a Christmas present when I was six years old. He was a gift from the mother-in-law of one of my uncles. He was a fluffy brown thing, so I named him "Brownie." When reproached for a lack of imagination

Last afternoon I received a sample of Chanel No. 5 EDP spray from a kind fellow member (along with several other goodies) and am working on my second wrist sniffing.
Surprise! It's so easy to love! For me anyway. I was reading the reviews and do not get some of the discord with this scent. Sharp? No. Grannyish? Never. This is sexy sexy sexy. Onto the wishlist with this potion. Mm mm mm. Much sweeter than I expected. Not at all like I imagined from the reviews.

Back in 2005, we had an idea to do a version of Basenotes for makeup. Due to very young children and one of us having to go to a real job, we didn't have time to do it then and it got left by the wayside. Some people enjoyed the model we used to promote it though!
Here is some more information:
