    That is terrible! I hope your allergy goes away at some point.

I had a bottle of Cristalle, I liked it at first and grew tired of it. I gave it away, but it was probably one of the formulas that lasted a long time. I like the newer Cristalle au Verte anytime I've sprayed it on me in the store, it reminds me of the original but also has a newer twist. However the longevity is very short. I sometimes feel I'd like to wear something everyone else isn't wearing, that's why I like the Cristalle au Verte. I think Coco Mademoiselle is very well done, and I like Coco Noir. But so much of fragrance has to do with skin chemistry as well as personal preference. I like Allure as well. I only have a sample, and I like to wear it, but again I don't feel it lasts very long on me.

    I have an ongoing love affair with Chanel fragrances.
    I adore Chanel No5. Coco mademoiselle, Chanel N019 and No19 POUDRE

    I know coco mademoiselle is so popular, but it smells so amazing on me and lasts a long time.

    That's TRAGIC!!!!! I think I'm getting that one next. Are you sure these aren't seasonal allergies??? Once active you can be sensitive in terms of your symptoms being more severe and
    aggravated by many things, including fragrance. I'd have to find a pill or an App for that!!! I hope you're feeling better.

    I agree Coco Mademoiselle is a good one! I guess there is a reason it is so popular... No5 was groundbreaking historically, I think I have a sample of Eau Premiere version, I should try that one again...

    Do any of the fragrances change your mood? For example, do you think any of them make you happy, energize you, put you in the mood for a night out, etc. Which ones would you say evoke which emotions?

    I feel Coco Mademoiselle is great for a dinner out.
    Chance is great to wear in the morning when running around, doing errands.

    Coco mademoiselle edp has been my signature scent for years. I love to layer the fragrance with the shower gel and body oil or lotion. I find the edp lasts ages on my skin, I can put it on after my shower in the morning and still smell it when I've come home. Its my favourite scent and I get lots of comliments on it too.

    I find No5 makes me feel relaxed and pretty. I love the powdery and clean. Coco mademoiselle makes me feel sexy... Chanel No19 and 19 poudre is fresh and makes me feel alert
    mademoiselle is a great evening scent, I agree. I have a date this weekend and will do the coco mademoiselle layering effect for it

    Great thread! I have Beige, loved and finished my bottles of Chance eau fraiche and coco mademoiselle. I love, love Chance edp but it doesn't smell good on me, too sour. This is my greatest regret among all the chanel fragrance. I like No. 5, the smell does remind me of bills though lol.

    I developed some rashes but I'm unable to determine what the cause it and I suspect it could be perfume or medication. What is your allergic reaction? I tried Eau Vive on me. Its a fresh scent and strong, not weak or diluted. It reminds me of a male cologne after a short while. I like male cologne but not enough to buy Eau Vive for now. I feel it has the chanel strength but not the depth/sophistication of other chanel fragrances.

    Chanel No. 5 does not go well with my body chemistry at all, but I like it on others. My first Chanel fragrance was Cristalle; my freshman roommate introduced it to me, and I loved the crisp, green, clean scent. Then I moved on to Coco Mademoiselle EDT and EDP. Had a brief flirtation with Chanel eau Fraiche and mini sample bottles of Les Exclusifs scents my Chanel SA at the time used to give me generously.

    I'm not sure how much I like Vive. It smells almost very Balenciaga. I smell notes of soap and it has an overall male scent. I don't smell a cheap grapefruit scent, which is good. I think Tendre is the only one for me out of the series.

    No. She mentioned that powder came back in stock after it was gone.
    Mist I haven't seen anywhere

    I finally got a sample of the new one, Chance eau Vive. I really like it! I may even like it better than all the other Chance versions.... I'm not sure of the longevity, though. I feel that the first one lasts the longest but I have to try them again.

    I was a wee bit distracted. I was meaning to report back. I really like it but I've to yet worn it too often---product overload. On the other hand I've just about used all of Eau Vive

    Honestly, Misia is different from Guerlain. Both violet but different.
