As I’ve mentioned before, Chanel No. 22 is my signature scent. I find that it’s the closest any scent comes to being filled with my heart and soul. It feels like an olfactory best friend when I wear it – the sort of friend who understands you and illuminates the better parts of your nature.
Vintage Chanel No. 22 Eau De Cologne is not unlike vintage Chanel No. 22 Eau De Parfum, but there’s a lightness, a melancholy sweetness and an ephemeral aldehydic glow that is much more pronounced in the cologne. I perfer the parfum, but the cologne still is glorious.
Top notes: aldehydes, bergamot, neroli and peach. Middle notes: jasmine, orange blossom, rose, and lilac. Base notes: tonka, benzoin and opoponax.
