If you likehttp://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.608.jpg Chanel Chanel N°5

You may like http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.1007.jpg Chanel Chanel N°22
& since that one is discontinued (well they only sell it in this form now(although it is still Chanel No 22) - Here is the new form:

No, I don't think there is. Chanel No.5 is really special - there's nothing it can be easily compared to! It's very much in its own category, but I think you might like

Re: If you like this fragrance, you might also like...

& to answer your question, no they do not have that feature. 

Also what is it that you like about Chanel No 5 - is it the Aldehydes?

Re: If you like this fragrance, you might also like...

Oh I have read one of the Amouage women's fragrances also smells like Chanel No 5..  I cannot wait to get my hands on the Mini set Amouage is now offering :-D It's sooo cute!

Re: If you like this fragrance, you might also like...

Somebody on another thread asking for a cheaper alternative to http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.608.jpg Chanel Chanel N°5 recommended http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.2626.jpg Mariella Burani Mariella Burani-I would be interested in testing this one, since cheaper doesn't necessarily mean worse quality. My grandma wears Chanel No 5 and it's a pleasant enough soapy scent, but I think a slightly more flowery similar scent might do her well-she likes gardening! Mariella Burani looks like a possibly warmer and more clearly citric and floral than Chanel No 5-the ultimate "composition" scent which doesn't smell too much like any of its components...So if you buy this blind, could I buy/swap for a sample from you?http://fimgs.net/b/img/smilies/19.gif

Oh Thanks Rithacha for the heads up in regards to Lanvin Arpege, I now need that one in my collection http://fimgs.net/b/img/smilies/superglad.png

Re: If you like this fragrance, you might also like...

WOW...thank you for the quick responses! I was really only using Chanel #5 as an example. It is one of my personal favorites, Hope007...I love the total femininity and the classic, regal "air" of it. It's complex, yet it is very smooth and soothing. And, yes, I believe I am an aldehydes person...I love the brisk openings.  http://fimgs.net/b/img/smilies/40.gif

Re: If you like this fragrance, you might also like...

HOPE007, I really think you'll like it!! You seem like an Arpege type of person http://fimgs.net/b/img/smilies/tummenupp.gif Plus it will be unpatriotic to say so in this thread but (shhhh) I like Arpege better than No.5 wink

Re: If you like this fragrance, you might also like...

I really like the idea of this topic! Since there is not a feature like this..could we start one on this topic?  For instance, the person who offered the suggestions for "If you like #5 you might also like...." could then list a fragrance that they like, and the next person to reply would say "if you like (whichever fragrance they said) you might also like" and then they would list a fragrance they like and so on??  I think this would be great!!

Re: If you like this fragrance, you might also like...

Guess what, rithacha? I ADORE Arpege! It is a bit spicier than #5, but until recently, I was wearing those two religiously, all year-round!!! I also love Caleche, which I understand is another aldehyde fragrance...is there a pattern here??http://fimgs.net/b/img/smilies/roll.png

alternative fragrances (you can never have too many!!)http://fimgs.net/b/img/smilies/45.gif   

and possibly find less expensive/ high quality options!!!

Shall we start with the classics??

Re: If you like this fragrance, you might also like...

there is actually a tread under general perfume that does compare similar perfumes, if that is what you are looking for, and it is even called similar perfumes. There are lot of comparisons in this thread about 23 pages, so check it out and have fun.http://fimgs.net/b/img/smilies/31.gif

AND:

If you LOVE aldehydes (as in Arpege & No.5) and also love the smokey darkness suggested by incense, you will probably also love both of these: http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.168.jpg Gianfranco Ferre Ferre by Ferrehttp://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.2972.jpg Robert Piguet Baghari 2006
