No. 5 by Chanel

Absolutely horrible.

Chanel No5 is the most overrated awful perfume on the market. It couldn't get worse. Being exposed to this fragrance is equal to a violent attack. It's crude, loud, repellent, foul and completely unsophisticated. It's designed by a perfumer with no sense of smell, no refinement of any sort. The only imagination Chanel No5 can conjure is that of a worn-out Parisian brothel filled with workers long past their due date.

The bottle is beautiful though and the only reason it sells.

Wild Bluebell by Jo Malone London

Doesn't smell much of anything but then I tested it in the store and that may have dampened the scent. Suitable for someone who enjoy very faint and light scents, barely noticeable.

It supposedly contains bluebells, persimmon and white musk. It's more light-fruity and musk in fragrance. The only remnant of the fragrance that is noticeable after the first top note is the musk.

154 by Jo Malone London

Jo Malone's fragrances doesn't do it for me. I've tried a few in the past but the fragrance neither lasts or remains stable. The notes are too predictable. The fragrances contain basically 2-3 notes. It's something anyone can blend. After about six months the fragrance loses its scent and smell chemical (poor fixatives).
