    Default Best Chanel Perfume in your opinion. (Multiple Choice Poll)

    Please select as many of the choices in the poll..

  2. #2

    Default Re: Best Chanel Perfume in your opinion. (Multiple Choice Poll)

    I chose No. 19 and Cristalle, but must clarify that for Cristalle, my vote is for the EdT; not the EdP, which I'm not crazy about.

    Default Re: Best Chanel Perfume in your opinion. (Multiple Choice Poll)

    I only voted for one,Bois des Ilse, which is my all time favorite Chanel. I also love Cuir de Russie, Coco, No. 19, No.22, No.5, 31 Rue Cambon and Cormandel. I guess I'm a Chanel fan. As for the mens frags Egoiste and Antaeus ( which makes me weak in the knees when I smell it on some one).

    My preference goes to N° 22 because it makes me think of my grandmother, but I also like Cuir de Russie, Bois des Iles, Coromandel and Coco.

    I voted for Cuir de Russie because it's the only Chanel that really works for me.
    I've trademarked the color bleu

    I love them all! But Bois des Iles got my vote because it's extraordinary.

    Default Re: Best Chanel Perfume in your opinion. (Multiple Choice Poll)

    I voted for no.19, no.5 (parfum), Cuir de Russie (WOW- this one to me is closely related to no. 5 but is softer, quieter, and just lovely) and Coco, which I can't always wear, but respect very much for its spicy complexity.

Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

    What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache

    I second that. Coromandel of the Les Exclusifs line. I find that I'm a Chanel fan, too.

    19 EDT, BdI EDT, and Cristalle EDT are my favorites, with 19 getting my vote for "the best".

    Voted for 3: Nos. 19 and 22, and also for Bwah-dez-Eel.

    Yeah, how come Les Exclusifs were excluded?

    Talking Re: Best Chanel Perfume in your opinion. (Multiple Choice Poll)

    Only one vote from me, and to the ultimate perfume IMHO, my Holy Grael - No 19. (Of course this is my taste, and on my skin!) All concentrations!
    Faves right now: Chanel No 19, Stella Rose Absolute, L´Heure Bleu, Elixir de Merveilles, Samsara.

    Totally unexpected for me Bois des Iles so far in the lead.

    What did you think it would be, afraafra?

    In a way, Bois de Iles is like a Chanel interpretation of Jicky. It has foody, spicy, woody and animalic, but done in the refined Chanel house style. It is no wonder people think it is sexy!

    I'm another one who does not get along too well with Chanels, but 19 and Bois de Iles are ok on my skin, and very occasionally a little Cuir de Russie.

    I chose Chance, i got it as a present i really like it,
    its classy, elegant and still sexy.
    I used Coco Mademoiselle some time ago but it was not the
    one. I also like the other Chanel fragraces but only on the others.

    A 3 way tie between #19, Bois des Iles and Cuir de Russie for All time best surprises in pure parfum.
    There are definite issues when it comes to Edt's. Especially the new #19 which is awful. Well, way too sweet and no smoke. It should be dry and smokey as I first discovered it in the EDP.

    They're all completely different scents and all so great at what they are meant to be. Not lame copies of each other with a ton of freesia and vanilla dumped in.

    I also discovered that I really do like #5. It took over a year of trying it at the dept. store. I couldn't figure out why it wasn't any good. There should be something good about this. Then the Chanel counter got a remodel and update. FINALLY the tester was replaced. That was the problem. All that time, the tester was cooked in those hot lights. I tried the EDP sample, bought the parfum and loved it! A gorgeous sparkling champagne of a fragrance. When it finally settles in about an hour, it's only slightly powdery. Not heavy because I really don't go for those, but light as angel food cake. Really first-rate.
