SOTD: Chanel N. 22

The weather is incredibly strange this June right now it is cool and overcast, usually at this point in the year the heat and I are battling it out, but not right now. I was going to wear Nuit de Cellophane today, but couldn't find my sample, so I reached for the ever beautiful Chanel N. 22. So yesterday evening after Apres L'Ondee wore off I put on a couple of dabs of Cuir Beluga and came to two conclusions 1) excellent strength and sillage and 2) It smells very similar to Ambra del Nepal (which does not have a $200+ price tag).

I want all the pictures you post!!!

Ah number 22, I always want to love you but you don't quite work on me- but I love you on other people.

It's grey and murky in London- has been all week. I am normally fine with that but I really want to get the summer perfumes out at the moment!

Rose, it's still grey over here, hopefully summer will come to you soon. I have to ask what happens with 22 on you?

I don't know what happens with number 22 really, it just seems to break down and be a bit sickly with aldehydes and not much more- I like the smell in the bottle though. I think I have quite dry skin and scents can be quite heavy on me. I haven't tried it for quite a while though so perhaps I should re- visit.

Well that is no fun, on me it dries down to a lovely delicate vanilla with hints of raspy incense.
