Will I buy it again? Ofcourse, I will.
My final verdict: Chanel No.5 EDP Perfume for Women is great. I would recommend it for every women in her 20s and above. Its not for younger girls because it has a mature fragrance. Also it is an attention grabber. Wear it on your date, sure you will get compliments for the way you smell. Its more of an evening fragrance but you can wear it to work too. Chanel no 5 has a bath products range too. And many online stores offer discount on the price of Chanel no 5 EDP perfume.
