Acres of words have probably been written by now about the only thing Marilyn Monroe allegedly wore in bed. This is a perfume which, love it or hate it, signifies a woman rather than a girl. Keira may swan about on a moped but the Chanel No 5 woman has a chauffeur.
Less prosaically, the perfume is described as ‘floral-aldehydic – a bouquet of abstract flowers with an indefinable feminitity”. It does have a strangely sweet top note which I took a while to get used to. And The Husband does drive us to Tesco occasionally. Spoiled, moi?
For those lost in blokedom come 4:45 pm on Christmas Eve, just head to the Chanel counter. You won’t go far wrong. Better that than another black/red lingerie item that even David Blaine would take a week to get out of.
Midlife mum from Cardiff. Wine Imbiber. Likes glitter, fluff and olives. Approaching tweendom with Caitlin (11) and Ieuan (10). The husband is hiding in the loft.
