My third try at sampling this iconic scent and I still don't like it.  Starts out very strong and dark and reminds me of decay of some sort.  After a while, I smell play-doh and then it dries down to a very sweet vanilla.  I have never liked a strong vanilla on my skin.  I so wanted to love this.  Lucky for me I purchased a vintage decant and didn't spring for a whole bottle.

I have ordered Champagne de Bois and Forest Walk decants from Sonoma Scent Studio.  I really can't wait to try them.

I am wearing my first ever Chanel No 5 today.  It's vintage, found in a small bottle that I picked up a few weeks ago which is about 1/3 full.  I am surprised that this is the first time I have sampled it as I was so excited upon finding a vintage Chanel.

Imagine my joy when I discovered on the dry down that it smelled like my Easter Basket from long ago!  Could it be those wonderful Stover White Rabbits?
