Chanel No. 5 vs No. 5 Eau Premiere

My thought on these two:
Definitely two distinct scents. The former is warm, sweet, and soapy. The other is similar with an added sweetness which in my opinion resembles an orange creamsicle. I prefer the original as the supersweet orange creamsicle is too much for me and becomes syrupy. The other remains clean and mysterious and sexy. I do think that No. 5 Eau Premiere is a nicely made scent- I just prefer a little less corn syrup.
I also get a slight chemical smell that reminds me of insect repellant in the newer version that I do not notice in the original. Well, it's only obvious if I'm in a picky mood.
I will try these again. It was fun trying this classic for the first time, along with the newest version. I've tried No. 5 2 or 3 times now, and Eau Premiere only once. I will again apply the original to my left wrist and the newer to my right.
Also, I liked the original better the first time when I tried it by itself. Then, next to Eau Premiere it seemed more bitter and soapy and harder to love. Because that orange creamsicle sure is appetizing. Just not something I normally like in a fragrance. It is one of the nicer, milder orange creamsicle type notes I've smelled. Maybe I would like Eau Premiere if I had the munchies and were in a sweet mood.
Both scents are lovely though.
I think they'd be great layered together.
