Even though it is worlds softer and less dynamic than the original, I will say that this is a crisp, smooth, non-annoying modern perfume.
A lot of reinterpretations of older scents can be real eye rollers, designed to appeal to the easily challenged commercial consumer. This is a welcome exception. While lacking the frothy punch of the real 5, this is markedly pleasant and a good clean way to better reintroduce young people to Chanel perfumery.
Think of the original 5 taken down to a solemn place. A place that is less flamboyant, more reserved and agreeable. Now add a smooth green citrus aspect, hard to identify yet very present. Play up the rose, add a silken soft drydown that hums and you get Eau Premiere.
