I'm a bit of a classicist. Like @Foxxee, I like "Chanel #5" and "L'air du Temps". I think of "#5" as a full-bodied floral (on me at least) and "L'air" as a very ethereal floral.
"L'heure Bleue" by Guerlain (mysterious oriental scent.)
"Rive Gauche" by Yves Saint Laurent (complex, modern scent)
"Vanderbilt". Gets more compliments than anything I've worn.
"Ici" by Coty. Has subtle notes of cocoa that are so seductive! Best inexpensive scent I've found
I hate that they keep tampering with the formulas of classic scents. Will only wear scents that are long-lasting on me-- can't stand when they fade out quickly!

I love Chanel's:
Cuir de Russie
I was given a set of Chanel's Les Exclusifs and I love them all, really. It is a great fragrance house.
One of the biggest problems the fragrances houses face is the regulations of ingredients. Guerlain had to change some classics and they are not the same. I loved Nahema, L'Heure Bleu and Mitsouko....sadly all the more recent purchases were a sorry version of the originals. Corporate ownership and profit margins may also have a role. Chanel is still an independently owned company, which helps to insure the qualty of the products. Chanel fragrances have stayed pretty steady and true to scent.

@Mindy D On my skin, Chance eau tendre eau de toilette is more like a Body Mist as far as longevity. The eau de pafum does last longer because they added the notes of Jasmine & Rose but it is not a long lasting perfume but more like a toilette. I have the 1.7 oz & on my body chemistry it lasts about 2 hours then becomes a skin scent. I like it as a spring/summer scent but not enough to re-purchase. You may want to try a sample. I used to wear Channel many years ago but I prefer the more modern take on their perfumes. I do have my Mom's Coco, No 5 & No 19, I keep them for sentimental reasons but No 5 I will wear occasionally. It's a more powdery scent. My favorites are Coco Mademoiselle eau de parfum....I do think for me, Its more of a spring/summer/ fall scent but certainly can be an all year round scent & many like it as a signature scent. My favorite is the Intense Version...It's less on the citrus & stronger on the Tonka Bean & Vanilla.

I haven't worn many, but I love Cristalle, and I do enjoy #5.
I'm on the mailing list and so often tempted. What a treat to get a box. Honestly, just thinking about it I swear I can detect the aroma.
