Reviews of No. 5 Eau Première

I can't wear Shalimar. I can wear the EDT of No. 5 but it can still be a little too aldehydic. This is perfect. This is a lighter version of No. 5 and it adds some of the vanilla powder you get from Shalimar. You still get the chanel no. 5 DNA in a more wearable younger version.

Watercolor love child of Shalimar and Chanel no. 5 EDT.

Thumbs up because it's inoffensive, soft, and well-done. Upon multiple wears, it reveals a hidden complexity -- however, Eau Premiere is ultimately 'flatter' than the original EDT, lacking the latter's textural, effervescent aura. A nice but, unlike the EDT, ultimately uninteresting scent.

3.5 stars.

Sharp, slightly bitter floral opening with a vague, burnt plastic note underneath. Then, it shifts to burnt rubber. These are not awful observations -it's actually very interesting. I am reminded of Bulgari Black in a way. Neroli, rose, ylang ylang, and vetiver seem to be in a battle over dominance. The notes seem like dry, crumbly bits, ground down like grains of sand. It's nearly harsh...
In time it settles down. Still dry, more powdery, and jasmine rears its haughty head. Begins to bear more of a green, floral type accord. A smidge of amber and a toss of sandalwood come in for a notice, as well.
Vanilla sneaks in and really makes a difference. It "prettys-up" this fragrance. Sweet-like musk later.
This is an interesting take on No. 5 -- the verdict is, I like it.

A delicate rosebud to No 5's Georgia O'Keeffe rose. It starts with a peal of white flowers and citrus, then sings soprano for hours of fresh dewy brightness. I miss the depth and powder of No 5, but this is a lovely, younger, more girlish sister.

Eau Premiere opens with bright, sparkling aldehydes, citrus and powdered ylang ylang. 10 - 15 minutes later the citrus disperses, a soft rose develops and the aldehydes and powder come forward. This softens pretty quickly (around 30-45 minutes) into mostly floral and powder with the once sparkling aldehydes now a shimmer in the background. It has a very floral/soapy feeling, very fresh and clean as if you just stepped out of the shower.

Sillage is moderate at around arms length and lasting power seems moderate at around 4-6 hours.

Overall, this is a beautiful fragrance. At times the aldehydes and powder can be a bit much, but it's still lovely. It has a fresh out of the shower feeling...very floral soap and dressing powder and a little champagne.
