    Re: Super Scent: The Best of Chanel

    Woah! No. 5 doesn't get a mention. Now, that IS interesting. Well done to Bois Des Iles, though. It's a beautiful piece of work.

    Hi,

    Yes, I'm afraid Candy Perfume Boy and I had to choose from current formulations. I completely and utterly worshipped the original Fahrenheit. The current version pales in comparison, sadly.
