This perfume has been worn by everyone from actresses to models, and from politicians to athletes. That makes it one of the most desirable perfume to buy.

The following perfumes are the top of the line and worth wearing.

9Chanel No.5 Paris
Originally designed in 1986, Chanel No. 5 is the iconic perfume that everyone thinks about when they think of Chanel. When it was created, it was a reinterpretation of the original perfume, which was created during the 1920s. Although we’re not sure what that original perfume smelled like, we have to say that it probably couldn’t hold a candle to this great scent. Its top notes are full of fruit fragrances including ylang-ylang, peach, and bergamot. Its heart layer slides gently into floral notes including rose, iris or jasmine, and it’s base notes include such exciting fragrances as sandalwood, , and oakmoss.
8Chanel No. 19 Parfum For Women
Chanel No. 19 is an Eau de Toilette spray that seems like it’s been around forever. And that’s probably because it has been around for a long time. It was created the year before Coco Chanel died in 1970. It was designed by the world-class perfumer, Henri Robert, and it’s been a choice of many discriminating women for decades now.

7Chanel Allure Eau de Parfum
Chanel has described this perfume as warm and sexy with just a touch of freshness to it and we have to concur with their estimation of this perfume. It has top notes of orange, bergamot, cedar, and vanilla. What’s different about this perfume from other ones made for women, however, is that while it’s top notes are well-defined, its heart and base notes tend to mingle together. The notes that can be found just under its initial impression include fragrances of vetiver, jasmine, peony, and magnolia. Its sillage can be heavy at times, but it also has good longevity.
6Gabrielle Chanel Eau de Parfum
Gabrielle is one of the newer perfumes that was launched by Chanel in 2017. It’s Olivier Polge’s reinterpretation of beautiful white flowers and it’s a pretty exceptional interpretation at that. It has splendid top notes of black currant, grapefruit, and orange. It has heart notes of pear, lily-of-the-valley, and ylang-ylang. This perfume’s bottom notes include orris root, musk, and sandalwood. And it’s all contained in a bottle that seems to be the physical representation of the scent itself. It’s a long-lasting perfume with a light floral sillage, and it has just a touch of femininity to it.
5Chanel Coco Noir Eau de Parfum
Originally launched in 2012, Coco Noir is a sensual blend of fruit and floral scents that are supported by a base of woodsy scents. Its top notes are all orange, grapefruit, and bergamot, while its middle notes are resplendent with more flowery fragrances. It’s heart notes include peach, rose, geranium, and jasmine. It’s bottom notes include sandalwood, patchouli, white musk, and Tonka beans. This perfume is capable of lasting all day long, but it doesn’t have a heavy sillage that is capable of knocking those around the wearer down. All of which makes it feminine and a very classy scent.
4Chanel Coco Eau de Parfum
Coco Eau de Parfum by Chanel is another iconic perfume from the 1980s. It was initially created by Jacques Polge in 1984 and immediately captured the imagination of anyone who came into contact with it. This scent draws people in with its blend of Oriental spices and its floral center. Although some people may find its sillage to be too heavy, and maybe even dated, to a lot of people love it. This perfume has top notes of coriander, peach, Bulgarian rose, and jasmine. It’s middle, or heart notes, contain toches of mimosa, cloves, clover, rose and orange blossom. At its bottom, the wearer can expect to express notes of Tonka bean, sandalwood, and vanilla.
3Bleu De Chanel For Men
Blue de Chanel For Men has a soft, sensual scent to it that beckons to those around the wearer. It was first introduced in 2010, and ever since then, it has been impressing people with its array of fragrances. Its top notes include pink pepper, grapefruit, and lemon, and it’s subtle base notes include notes of patchouli, sandalwood, cedar, and white musk. What’s really exciting about this perfume, however, are neither its top or bottom notes, but what happens at its heart. This perfume’s heart notes include notes of ginger and nutmeg comingling with jasmine scents.
2Chanel Antaeus Pour Homme
Named after a Greek demigod, Antaeus is an Eau de toilette spray that’s designed specifically to be worn by men, although some women do enjoy wearing it as well. Some people may consider it a 1980s scent only to be worn by those who are nostalgic for this decade, but we feel it’s truly one of the classic Chanel scents. Its profile includes citrus notes of bergamot and lime that’s mixed with coriander and myrrh. These top notes softly sink into this scent’s heart notes that includes notes of rose, thyme, and jasmine. Its conclusion includes notes of patchouli, oakmoss, and French Labdanum.
1Chanel Egoiste Eau De Toilettes
Designed to be used by men, this Chanel perfume was originally introduced in 1990 and is known for its fresh top notes and warmer heart notes. Its top notes include the scents of mahogany, rosewood, and mandarin. Its heart notes include carnation, rose, and cinnamon. At its base, this perfume has notes of tobacco mixed with vanilla, amber, and leather. And although this perfume lasts a long time on the skin, it’s sillage isn’t enormous at all. This allows it to be applied in the morning and worn throughout the day without its scent overpowering the man’s presence when he walks into a room.
