    First by Van Cleef & Arpels

    Let us examine two version of aldehydes VC&A First &
    Chanel no 5 VC&A First has a harsh Aldehyaic opening
    synthitic and volumed then chanel with it's more discreet and diluted silage In a few minutes V.C
    turns to a soft floral scent with accords of black
    current raspberry that leaves a sparkling texture
    Chanel dries with neroli the note of bergamot dos'nt
    overwhelm but still defind the senses ylang ylang
    brings the velvety feel of no 5 orris root gives it
    an earthy touch, V.C Is Chanel for the 80's a bit
    Multi layered then Chanel no 5, A fruiter and outgoing sister aldehyde to Chanel which is reserved
    and refind V.C and Chanel has the same Civet note
    but Chanel adds a richer and deeper note of civet
    then V.C.

    Chanel exemplifies the grounded and pragmatic view of femininity while V.C is the Airy more romantic head in the clouds view.
