Chanel

Everyone knows this make of fine perfumes.

Sycomore

$5.00

Launched by Chanel in 2008 as part of their Les Exclusifs de Chanel line, Sycomore is a five-star stunner. In his book, Perfumes The A-Z Guide, Luca Turin says: “If putting this on does not make you shiver with pleasure, see a doctor.”

28 La Pausa

$5.00

I love wearing violet and iris scents in the Spring. Both these notes have that distinctive green vegetal sap smell that wafts up when cutting new stems and leaves – almost sweet, almost woody, but more milky and rooty.

Cuir de Russie

$5.00

If you have a basic knowledge of French, you know that Cuir de Russie means Russian Leather. Rectified birch tar is the smoky resinous note which makes Cuir de Russie, and most leather scents, smell like leather. It is, in fact, the dry-cooked resin from the bark of the birch tree and has been used for centuries to cure leather, and to “dress” it, as in polishes for military leather boots.

Chanel No.5

$4.00

I read recently that Chanel No. 5, which was created by Ernst Beaux and  launched in 1921, is still the best-selling fragrance in the world. It’s a floral, with rose, jasmine, etc. but the notes don’t really matter. The fact remains that it is a brilliant composition and a beautiful scent that every person who buys perfume should experience. Chanel No. 5 is a benchmark.
