Up for sale is a
vintage Chanel No 5 Cologne spray in the black and gold canister.
It is 1.5oz and measures
4.5” high and 1.4” wide. I can’t tell how much is left inside as the inner
bottle is not clear, but it feels heavy and I can clearly hear the contents
There are no damages
to the canister or inner bottle and the spray works perfectly.
Chanel No 5 is THE
timeless classic, worn by Marilyn Monroe. Story has it that in 1920 when Coco
Chanel was presented with small glass vials of scent numbered 1–5 and 20–24,
for her assessment, she chose the sample composition contained in the fifth
vial. Chanel told her master perfumer, Ernest Beaux, whom she had commissioned
to develop a fragrance with modern innovations: "I present my dress collections
on the fifth of May, the fifth month of the year and so we will let this sample
number five keep the name it has already, it will bring good luck."
It features top notes
of bergamot, lemon, ylang-ylang, neroli, aldehydes; middle notes of jasmine, mayrose, lily of the
valley, iris ; base notes of sandalwood, vetiver, vanilla, amber, patchouli.

I have been an avid

offer for sale are stored in a cool, dry, dark environment in order to prolong
their viability. Perfumes will be well packed to protect from breakage. To
prevent leakage, glass stoppers will be securely taped with plumbers tape which
does not leave a sticky residue.

about Return of Perfumes/Cosmetics ***
Many of the
perfumes/cosmetics I offer for sale are considered “vintage” and date from
the 1930’s to 1980s. Apart from gently cleaning the outside of the bottles if
necessary, you will receive then exactly as I find them from my sources.
Perfumes can change with age; their color, smell and consistency may be
different from how you remember them or from when they were originally bottled.
Sometimes the top notes will have “gone” but this does not mean that they are now bad; it
is just the natural ageing process. Therefore I will not offer a refund for
this reason or because you simply don’t like how they smell/appear now.
