I agree with you in general, although I have a few things to be particular about.
Chanel No. 5 has been a long No-No for me until last December when I started applying well-aged perfume in miniscule amounts and wearing it outside in the freeze. Moisture in the air does not seem to influence it, though. Try it once, if you are not much of a fan. Want to really feel that cananga (ylang-ylang)?
Bois des Iles is un-Chanel in character? You have lost me on this, dear. Very Chanel, the best of it.
