nbsp; What? Chanel No5 EDP Perfume Review Where to buy? Rustan’s Essences / Rustan’s Beauty How much does it cost? 2,595php/50ml Initially, whenever I hear of Chanel No 5 from my lola, I get prejudicial about my lola’s taste in fragrance. I tell her Chanel No 5 is for old people and smells awfully strong. But the truth is, I never even sniffed or whiffed that perfume before. Only in stories. After browsing around Rustan’s Essences in Shangri-la Mall (Shaw) for a new signature scent (My old favorite: Narcisso Rodriguez EDP) I finally got the courage to try Chanel perfumes. I sprayed on my wrist. *sniff sniff* Surprise! It smells like a combinatation of baby powder, flowers, mild sweetness and sophistication. But why? Chanel N°5 is the first perfume in the floral-aldehyde group and the first by the quantity of aldehydes in its composition (another legend says that the Ernest Beaux’s assistant overdosed the aldehydes in the composition by mistake). The top notes are composed of aldehydes, bergamot, lemon, neroli and ylang-ylang, the heart of jasmine, rose, lily of the valley and iris, while the base is created of vetiver, sandalwood, vanilla, amber and patchouli. Longevity: 12 hours Sillage: Moderate Learn more about perfumes with my Beginners Guide to Perfumes Packaging Review As I always say, perfume pulses a different fragrance, depending on you skin chemistry so ALWAYS TEST! (An original tester! Lots of fakes everywhere). I resent the labeling of No. 5 as “Old Lady” perfume. I had heard it labeled as such for most of my life, that I assumed it was true. No modern woman of my generation would wear such. Not every woman is fit for this perfume, and it definitely has a sense of maturity to it. This woman was the right fit, always elegant, not vain or slovenly, she had what was truly grace. She always had men around her because they realized that she was of an uncommon stock and refinement. If so many “old ladies” wear this perfume, I imagine it is because they realize the raw potential it has, its ineffable force that can ensnare a man’s soul like mine was so effortlessly. 50 years from now, when I am old and gray, I know that this scent will still captivate me, returning me to that moment, if only for an instant. For the special type of woman who is like that, than this is the perfume for you. Top Notes – The adelhydes emit a strong baby powder scent that may put-off some people but after it melows down to the.. Heart – It’s very floral and well-rounded. It’s not too sweet, not too floral making the perfume romantic to wear. Base – Finally it sinks down to a warm musk, wood, vanilla and yes BABIES. It tries to be seductive by trying to smell innocent even if it isn’t. Wearing this perfume makes me feel sophistcated, but still young at the same time. It is not offensive and is a very close to the skin scent once it goes down to the base notes. I think I found my new signature fragrance!

CHANEL No 5 Review By Kuya Ditto, Kilatis
As I’ve mentioned here before, I have a bit of an obsession with fragrances. This fascination began when I was young and realized that smelling certain scents brought on a rush of vivid memories like nothing else. To this day, I can’t smell Ivory soap or sulphury well water without thinking of my grandmother and…

What? Chanel Rouge Coco in Roussy Where to buy? BeautyMNL or Rustan’s Beauty How much? 1,395php Before I give you the juicy story on my new lipstick, would you believe the last time I’ve written something for the blog was over a week ago. The posts you see published the past few days are scheduled drafts. Something we, bloggers do just in case we couldn’t find time in the world to write because yes. Life happens. So how’s life going lately for me? Well I recently quit my job to pursue my “serious” “career” called “blogging” yes folks I’m blogging full-time. Supposedly. But instead of spending more time writing, I spent it going out and about, taking care of baby Geof, and enjoying life outside the internet! As far as dating is concerned, go follow my facebook page (facebook.com/kikaysikat) or my instagram (heyitsmekaycee) for juicy chismis! Orayt? Now let’s begin… REVIEW As with all cosmetic purchases, I bought this out of impulse. I was wearing a white top for a Nuffnang dinner at Planet Grapes and I didn’t like the lipstick I was wearing for it (Ruby Woo) so I decided what the heck. A good reason to buy a new lipstick LOL. I came to the Chanel counter and asked the SA to recommend a color suited for my skintone and current OOTD and she recommended Rosey. Now I’m a fan of Chanel lipstick formulations because they’re pigmented, applies smoothly, and has a nice color pay-off that doesn’t change throughout the day. Here’s better news, SA told me they reformulated Rouge Coco to be more long lasting. Claims to last 8 hours and leave a nice tint. It did and I love it. ROUGE COCO IN ROUSSY SWATCHED ON ARM ROUGE COCO IN ROUSSY WHEN WORN Oh yeah. Selfie galore. Shameless. Shame. Hi! FINAL THOUGHTS I’d say wear this lipstick when you want a pop of bright color on your face. Perfect for days when you wear a color that washes you out like white, beige, or gray. The pink is flattering. It’s actually brighter in real life but not as strong as a deep red or neon pinks. Okay, I’m still distracted by life! (and social media LOL… err.. and my new “lovelife” HAHAHA) Cheers! PS I had to re-type Roussy because I typed it as Rosey initially @_@
