Chanel Beauty House

Chanel Beauty House

A few weeks prior to March 1st, I received a package in the mail. It was very unexpected. The young man with the post said “From Chanel”. I was taken aback, mainly because I did not order anything. And I’m usually the one who gifts myself, especially since I love my Chanel. Upon opening the package, there was a scene viewer, I hadn’t seen one of those in a very long time. And in the viewfinder there was the invite to the Chanel Beauty House

Apparently, there was a Chanel pop-up shop called the Chanel Beauty house on Sunset Boulevard that was opening to the public March 1st through the 4th. These cute little viewfinders, were for a private party on March 1st at 7 p.m. for there will be live music and open bar.

Isn’t this what dreams are made of? After this, I went home and ordered 2 vanities in a similar style, a small one for travel and a large one for my bedroom to do makeup in.
Both have already come in handy. Thank you Chanel, you clever people.

Relating to the vanity that I mentioned earlier, the small vanity was connected to an ipad and had an app where you can try on different lipsticks. Too neat!

My Scent Chanel No.5

Chanel, I love you madly. A scent is everything. A scent represents who you are and what you represent.

Perfume is something that my mom always wore. And she taught that it’s something that can really help with your own identity. She always had a few signature fragrances and still does. To this day, if I smell a certain waft in the air, I instantly think of her. Or of other women in my life who wear a certain scent. Smells are something that cross time and memories, something that can bring us back to a place like nothing else can. A place, be it good or bad, that still exists to us, in our minds and hearts.

As I grew up I knew that perfume was something to wear and as I got older I started thinking about which one. Through trial and error I came across Chanel No.5. A legend.  A fragrance worn by women in hollywood, women of wealth and the everyday woman. And there’s a reason, it is the most gentle and alluring fragrance. So female, so soft and delicate. Pure refinement.

Of course, I wear the classic, Eau De Parfum. But I also incorporate the body lotion, the foaming bath and bath soap. I do own, Le Deodorant,  but I have to say it is no good. I don’t like the smell at all.  The smell is very unlike Chanel, it smells like bug spray. No good.

But, I will continue to wear this fragrance until a new one comes along, if a new one comes along. I don’t believe in ever saying never.
