This was purchased sealed from eBay (or possibly Chanel?) in 2015. It was a gift.
No. 18 smells like a building. It’s a bit woody… But in an old woodwork, dusty tile floors, marble staircase and old paint way. It’s supposed to be inspired by the allure and sparkle of exquisite gems but…no, I think it reminds me of an old building. Maybe an old school built in the 1920’s or a little before. I love it.
Some say it’s alcoholic. Not alcoholic in that it’s made of alcohol but more G&T or Old Fashioned. Perhaps. Either way, it’s a remarkable and underrated Chanel.
Of course I’ll keep it.
