A potential lemming for fans of Chanel No. 5 L'Eau? The In-Shower Gel ("A shower gel that gently cleanses skin and invigorates the senses with the fresh, vibrant scent...A floral bouquet of Rose, Jasmine and Ylang-Ylang combines with the crisp notes of Lemon, Mandarin and Orange for an unprecedented sense of liveliness.") and the Fresh Lotion ("This fast-absorbing body lotion nourishes, softens and delicately scents skin with the fresh, sophisticated fragrance of N°5 L’EAU.") are $45 each for 100 ml.
oh golly, these sound lovely. The citrus+florals in No. 5 are so beautiful to me.
L’eau’s clean-musky base didn’t work on my skin tho it smells great on others. I would try these if I had a chance.
Yesterday I stopped in at Ulta for a little self-care (needed eye cream desperately) and couldn’t resist the No. 5 testers. I sprayed L’eau, EdT, and EdP on my arms. I smelled to high heaven and it felt wonderful. There’s a reason it’s a classic!
I have still not grown into the original 5 and I like the L’Eau even less, sadly…
Wuh oh. Fortunately, that price will prevent me from caving.
Those are travel sized bottles almost!
I’ve read that Dove micellar body wash smells like #5 but I haven’t tried it myself. Chanel body products are so luxurious, though.
Me: must resist
