A few years ago, I started a Fragrance of Month section, but life and travel got in the way, and we placed that section on hold. However, I’m revisiting it with a brand new fragrance monthly. I’ve recently gotten into niche fragrances and plan on sharing them with you monthly. This is my first fragrance or official beauty post of the year, and today I want to pay homage to Chanel. 

I’ve always been in love with the Chanel brand, but it wasn’t until I became an adult that I could finally purchase it for myself. I started out with their fragrance and made my way up to their bags, as plopping down five thousand dollars for a bag is no small feat. 

I remember purchasing my first Chanel fragrance. I was at a loss as to which to get for myself, and the lady at the beauty counter at Macy’s insisted that I get Chanel N°5 as it was their iconic fragrance at the time. Now Chanel offers various fragrances, some flankers, and while they all smell great, there are just some that smell better than others. 

I think that everyone should own a piece of Chanel in their wardrobe, and starting with their fragrance is a great way to build your collection. And today, we’re sharing with you Chanel’s top five perfume fragrances, in no particular order. 

Top 5 CHANEL Perfume Fragrances

1. CHANEL N°5 – (Eau de Parfum)

Fragrance Family: Floral

Top Notes: Aldehydes, Ylang-Ylang, Neroli, Bergamot, and Peach

How can this not be no 1? Chanel N°5 is not only iconic and timeless, but is also sophisticated, powerful, and elegant. If you love musky, powdery scents, then this is the fragrance for you. This has a nice rich and creamy dry-down, and the longevity (sillage) of this fragrance lasts quite a long time.

2. CHANEL CHANCE EAU TENDRE – (Eau de Parfum)

Fragrance Family: Floral

I may actually be a little biased, but I think this might be my favorite Chanel fragrance of all time. Chanel Chance Eau Tendre is a floral fruity fragrance. It is truly a heavenly feminine fragrance that is light and fresh. This is the perfect year-round fragrance with hints of grapefruit and rose. If you had to get a Chanel fragrance but could only choose just one, I say get this first.

3. CHANEL COCO MADEMOISELLE – (Eau de Parfum)

Fragrance Family: Floral

Chanel Coco Mademoiselle is a citrus oriental floral, and if you’re a fan of roses and patchouli, then you’ll love this one. This is a sophisticated scent that is best worn on date nights. The sillage on this lasts about 10hrs on the skin and about 24hrs on clothing.

4, CHANEL GABRIELLE – (Eau de Parfum)

Fragrance Family: Floral

Gabrielle is a sophisticated, white floral, slightly citrusy scent that is chic, clean, elegant, and sophisticated. You can smell the jasmine in this one. However, I would recommend wearing this during the warmer months.

5. CHANEL ALLURE – (Eau de Parfum)

Fragrance Family: Floral

If you’re a fan of vanilla fragrances, then you’re going to absolutely love Chanel Allure. This is a warmer floral that is simply unique with a life of its own. The vanilla mixed with the citrus makes this smells oh so divine. This is also one that doesn’t come in the classic Chanel shaped bottle but one you would love to have in your collection.

BONUS: CHANEL COCO NOIR – (Eau de Parfum)

Fragrance Family: Floral

Chanel Coco Noir is more of an oriental woody fragrance and one that I had to add to the list. After Chanel Chance Eau Tendre, this is another of the best scents that Chanel has to offer. Chanel Coco Noir is the perfect winter scent that is both mysterious and nocturnal. This is the perfect mix of rose and patchouli. You won’t regret purchasing Chanel Coco Noir.
