Chanel No. 5 Perfume Review

Where the hell do I even start with my beloved Chanel No5 perfume? I have been suing this perfume for years now and I cannot believe that I am only just getting around to writing this review for you guys. I got my first bottle of this stunning perfume when I was only around 12 years old, I had lusted over it for such a long time and begged my mum and dad until they caved in. Since that day, I have always had a bottle of this beautiful Chanel No5 perfume sat on my shelf because it really is my go to perfume that I cannot live without. I don’t even want to think about how much money I must have spent on this stuff over the years because I am sure that it would make my eyes water!

I started using this perfume at such a young age because it is what my mum used to wear. She always used to have a big old bottle of this on her vanity and I can remember that I loved how it smelt whenever she sprayed it on herself. She always tells a tale of when I was around 10 years old and she was laid in the bath and all of a sudden, she started to get a waft of Chanel No5. She put on her robe, walked into her bedroom and caught me spraying the whole bottle all over myself. At the time I obviously didn’t realise that I had just wasted over £100 worth of perfume, but if anybody did that to mine I would probably cry a little bit!

From that moment though, I have been hooked on it and it got even more so when I reached my teen years and discovered that this was a favourite of the absolute babe that was Marilyn Monroe. I feel like every teenage girl, I went through a phase where Marilyn Monroe was my favourite woman in the world and I wanted to replicate everything she did, which included her perfume. I still love the interview that she did where a reporter asks what she wears to bed, and she says… “What do I wear in bed? Why, Chanel No. 5, of course”.

I don’t want to make this post into something incredibly long, because I really don’t think it is justified when it comes to reviewing a perfume. There is something about this Chanel No5 that just screams luxury at me. I pop this on in a morning and it gives me such a boost to my confidence and it is incredible. This is such a rich and deep scent, but at the same time, it isn’t in the slightest overpowering. Whenever I wear this stunning perfume, I get so many compliments, even passers-by’s have stopped me in the street and asked me what perfume I have been wearing, which is such a big compliment.

I have been wearing this perfume for such a long time and I love that people are now starting to associate this perfume with me. Now when it gets to Christmas and Birthdays, my family just buy me this without even having to ask because they know that I will be more than happy to receive it and it will without a shadow of a doubt get used up. I even have three of these sat on my shelf at the moment as a backup and I have one in my handbag and another in my car so that I can have a spritz of it whenever I feel like I want to freshen up a touch!

There really isn’t anything else that I can say about this perfume. I got my first bottle of this when I was only 12 and I am now 23 and I still adore it just as much as I did all those years ago. I love everything about this perfume from its legacy, its scent, the packaging and how it lasts so well on my skin. I know that this is going to be a permanent perfume in my collection and I love reaching for it and wearing it. I will leave a link to this down below in case anybody wants to check it out for themselves. Make sure to leave me a comment below and let me know what you go to perfume is!



  1. Chanel N5 was the best perfume in 70's or 80's, no doubt about that. But after inventing other Chanel female perfume like "Chance and Coco" the attraction is biased to them, I think. Personally, I still love the Chanel N5. I bought it for my wife from a local store named Buy Perfume in Bangladesh and she just loves it. Thanks for sharing this review.
