When I think of the words sophistication or class.Gabrielle Chanel pops in my head.I have had a growing obsession to Chanel.The smell of Chanel No5 is so familiar to me when I was a kid.I am not sure if my gran wore the fragrance or another member of the family wore it.But when I smell it it it takes me back to playing dress up.stealing my grans lipstick,and her pearls,putting on her heals and trying to walk tall in them.I was always doing that when I was at her house.
Anyway I have been meaning to post about my obsessive and growing love for everything Chanel.I was given a small bottle as a gift a few years ago,and cannot find it.I have a bad feeling it is in storage somewhere.And this was the start of my obsession.I went to ulta in charleston with my sister towards the end of summer.While in there looking for more make up to hoard I couldn't help stopping in the cologne and perfume area.There bright as the moon was Chanel No5.I ginormous bottle.I swear i started going to it like it was a magnet.I sprayed it on my wrist and I swear I wanted to bathe in it.It was pretty strong from what I remembered of my little bottle.I think thats why I didn't wear it.But this time was different.That strong smell turned into heaven.You could smell every flower and oil she put into this beautiful perfume.
All day long I could smell it on me and it was so pretty and elegant.And ever since that day,when ever I would go into Ulta or somewhere they sold Chanel.I would spray it on my wrist and if no one was looking would try to bathe in it before I left the store.lol.
A few pay days ago I went to Ulta just for a new foundation and other things,and as usual there was the Chanel section.I went over and sprayed it and pondered what size I wanted.But the price made me keep pondering.Plus the size I wanted was all sold out.So I bought my bits and pieces and left.On the way home all I could smell was that wonderful smell of Chanel.And I decided when I got home I would go online and look at their site.I found out where else to get it.Belk had it near where I live and I decided that sunday I was going to Belk and I was going to buy it.Well Sunday came and I got dressed and rushed over and bought a bottle of Chanel No5.And here are some lovely pics of her.
The photo makes it look much smaller but it is a fairly good size.This is the box it came in.And I keep it in the box.
And here she is out of the box.I wear it every day.It has become a part of me.When I wear it it doesn't wear off,which I absolutely love.I hate when I have to re spray a perfume later in the day.So I have decided that once a month I am going to treat myself to a Chanel product.So what is your favorite must have absolute obsession perfume?
Enjoy this lovely video about Chanel.
