4 Perfumes That were Made for Chanel No. 5 Lovers!

Posted: Jul 19 2016

 

Chanel No. 5 is the definitive "classic" perfume, but even No. 5 devotees need a little variety now and again. If you've fallen in love with this iconic scent but want to branch out a bit, the following 4 perfumes are worth your time. Each has some of No. 5's best qualities, plus a little twist of its own. See which might be a good fit for you and why after the jump.

 

Guerlain Shalimar — If what appeals most to you about No. 5 is its rich, old-fashioned floralcy, you'll definitely want to give this similarly iconic scent a sniff. Where No. 5 opens with neroli and has a woody base, you'll find that Shalimar is a bit more "edible," with notes of bergamot, iris, and a vanilla base.

Robert Piguet Baghari — If No. 5 feels a little too cold and metallic to wear around a roaring fire or under your favourite chunky knit sweater, you should definitely consider giving Baghari a sniff. Piguet is legendary for creating Fracas, but Baghari is a masterpiece of Old World perfumery as well. It's like a warmer, spicier take on No. 5, and it's only recently been re-released, so you'll be one of the lucky few to wear it before finds its way back onto the pop cultural radar.

 

Estee Lauder White Linen - An intense fragrance built on the harmony of aldehydes, flowers, wood, amber and musk. The purity of white linen that dries in the sun, a cool elegance of white flowers and green notes. White Linen is classified as floral-aldehyde. Top notes include Bulgarina rose, jasmine middle note is composed of orris, violet the base is made of vetiver and oakmoss. It is very similar to Chanel No. 5!

Amouage Gold - This was the first fragrance from the luxury perfume house of Amouage. An intensive floral for evening wearing and special occasions. The top notes blend wild rose, lily-of-the-valley and silver frankincense. The heart notes include myrrh, orris and jasmine. The oriental base is of ambergris, civet, musk, cedarwood and sandalwood. Rather similar to Chanel No. 5 and meant for more opulent occasions!
