Chanel No 22

I love Chanel fragrances and for some time I have been wanting scents from their exclusive line called Les Exclusifs De Chanel. These are basically rarer scents you can only buy in certain locations such as Chanel boutiques. You won't find these at your average department store. In London, the department stores I have seen that sell these are Selfridges and Harrods. Some of the scents are called No18, No22, 28 La Pausa and Cormandel. 

I was in London this week and finally decided to get myself one of these scents. They come in two different sizes - 200ml and 75ml. Be warned these are not cheap, Chanel fragrances can be expensive anyway and these are the most expensive ones I have seen. I got this one in Selfridges, in their perfume counter which is located around the corner from their main beauty department.



This scent was actually created for Coco Chanel and is named after the year of it's birth - 1922. The scent is really strong too and you don't have to use a lot to keep you smelling awesome. It also lasts quite a while even though it is an eau de toilette. I didn't have to reapply it throughout the day either. The scent is really floral, sweet and feminine.

The 200ml bottle is around £200. I got the smaller 75ml bottle which was £115. This is the most I have ever spent on a fragrance and i'm glad I finally managed to be able to get hold of this scent.

  1. £115? On a perfume! You must be doing well! I just couldn't ever justify it, I buy gym gear for around £50 but It lasts me years. =L

  5. It's such a gorgeous scent, Hannah. I love it. Do you know Beige by Chanel? Another gorgeous one. What I like the most about them, they last forever, just a few drops in the morning and it's still there in the evening. Happy Sunday, girl.

  6. It does sound lovely. I don't mind paying a bit more for a decent perfume either. I do like No5 and Allure. :-D
