ISO Suggestions - Female Leaning Light Aldehydic Floral

Jan 26, 2016
Hi, I'm looking for something like Chanel No. 5, but lighter. I wouldn't mind a little citrus with it. I would like florals in it.

Here is what I have and what my thoughts are on what I'm looking for...
I have Chanel No. 5 EDP from 2016 and quite like it, I also have a couple of vintage parfum bottles. I've tried Chanel No. 5 L'Eau and L'eau Premiere and the EDT, and none of them are what I'm looking for.
I have and very much enjoy Nocturnes by Caron, but want something more floral, same goes for vintage Ma Griffe by Carven. I have Beautiful by Estee Lauder, but I want something that doesn't smell as wet. I have Liu (2016 edp) by Guerlain, and that's not what I'm looking for either. None of my collection is fitting the bill. What would you suggest?

Thank you for your suggestions!

I'd highly suggest checking out the Chanel Paris colognes. At least where I am, they're exclusive to Nordstrom. All are lighter, less complex mixes clearly inspired by the notes of No 5. My personal favorite is Paris - Venice, which has No 5's champagne aldehydes over a soapy mix of lemon peel and lemon blossoms. I think at least one of these would suit you perfectly.

This.

The Jardin series from Hermes could also do it, but there is only one or two I find to be aldehydic enough for what you are describing.
