Hi Everyone, I am going to share my experience with Chanel N°19, a perfume for women from the veterans Chanel. Everyone here is familiar with the name Chanel. Chanel N°19 is Eau de toilette for women from their range. Having something from Chanel feels so luxurious. :yahoo: :yahoo:
Difference between EAU eau de toilette and EAU de parfum:
I always wondered what the difference between the two is. I couldn’t find any difference. While searching on the internet, I found that the difference is perfumes include 15-40% perfume concentrates, perfumes are the purest form of scented products, therefore expensive too. Eau de toilette has around 1-6% perfume concentrates. This makes for a light scent that doesn’t linger as much as the purer versions. :nerd: :nerd:
Chanel N°19 Description:
From their site:
An audacious, assertive fragrance, created especially for Coco Chanel by CHANEL Master Perfumer Henri Robert in 1971. A rich blend of floral and green notes, followed by May Rose and Iris from Florence. The finale: a chime of Chypre with a subtle, woody Vetiver note.
Some Facts about Chanel N 19:

Rs. 3000 – 4000 (I don’t remember it exactly).
I am using Chanel N°19 since 5 or 6 years, I can say that I started using Chanel even before I knew the significance of the brand. Chanel N°19 is quite famous among their perfume range, and I have read mixed reviews about it. I too initially hated it, but later started loving it like anything.
It has a very light green color. When you spray it first, it has a strong smell, which can overpower any smell around you. After some minutes, it lingers in its top notes and it has a pleasant and subtle fragrance. The smell lingers for 5-7 hours depending on the climate.
How I Feel About Chanel N°19 Eau De Toilette
I was gifted a box of Chanel N°19 5 or 6 years ago. It was a box of 3 small Chanel N°19 bottles, out of which, one is still with me, but this package has been discontinued now. After all these years, when I saw this version of the bottle, I couldn’t resist myself and I bought it. I don’t have any regret regarding the purchase because it has a very sensuous and adorable smell which rarely girls can resist. (Warning: Chanel can cause a huge dent in your account balance. 😐 :|)
It’s a perfect everyday wear. It’s not a perfume which gives you a headache; gives a feeling of strong smell just for some initial minutes of spraying. After that, a classy and unique smell lingers around for some hours. A subtle smell is there on the dress till I wash it. Even though it is made from flowers, it doesn’t give any flowery scent. The fragrance relies on the green notes I feel. It has an attractive and mystic smell; you can’t define it simply depending on its notes.
I started using it during my teenage, but I strongly feel that this perfume is not for teenagers :nono: :nono:. It gives a matured sort of feeling when used. This isn’t my signature perfume, it doesn’t have the “very me” feeling, still I love it and I feel most women will surely do the same. :jiggy1:
