    Default What kind of people would these Chanel fragrances be most suitable for?

    Hello everyone, Zhang Fan here. I know many people say any fragrance can be worn by any person. I agree, but I also think sometimes a fragrance can be more suitable for someone. That's because it matches their personality or style. If you had to choose, what type of personality or style can you imagine wearing these fragrances very well? Thank you!

    Chanel Platinum Egoiste - for a gentleman in an office environment or out socially with friends.

    The cristalles and 19 are green and on the colder side, so I imagine an impeccably elegant, but cold person.

    Sounds like me . I love both, but have yet to buy a full bottle.

    Coco- someone with a warm and kind personality. She always wears a thick stylish sweater. She gives huge hugs and wear a lot of jangling jewelry.

    No 19 has a cult by both men and women particularly the vintage bottles.

    Regarding the entire lineup mentioned and any individual fragrance in it-almost any kind of people, of any gender, age group etc., as long as they have rather classic fragrance tastes that somehow do never go out of fashion or become dated, rather than just indiscriminate following the latest fads and trends.

    Getting in more specifics, perhaps

    Coco: anyone into the same classic style, but with an added emphasis on and interest for certain exotic spicy notes

    Cristalle plus its flanker: the ones who enjoy smart-casual, fresher, greener twist added to a classic style

    No. 19 plus its flanker: any wearers into a certain rich, classy woodiness in a rather formal, mature and sophisticated harmony and balance of notes

    Platinum Egoiste: one of the Chanel masculines and Chanel scents in general most easy to wear flexibly during daytime/for office wear, adding a certain freshness, lightness and coolness to the warm, sensual and luxurious masculine floral theme of Egoiste, without diminishing in any way the very elegance and class of this very main theme- therefore this might be suitable for the fans of Egosite wanting a crossover of the same fragrance with a certain more relaxed and everyday versatile notes
    Currently wearing: Zino Davidoff by Davidoff

    +1 only one on the list I have experience with.

    My wife wears Coco has it in EDT and EDP concentrations both are quite versatile imo and work in all settings for a woman.
