N°5 L’EAU Eau de Toilette is the N°5 of today. A vibrant abstract floral under the banner of modernity, with freshness at its core. N°5 L’EAU, a praise of simplicity. N°5 L’EAU, the obvious choice. Its minimalist packaging has the iconic silhouette of the fragrance embossed on the cardboard case. Inside, a second box protects the crystal-clear glass bottle. No component spoils this distinct impression. The supreme simplicity of the bottle further accentuated by the contents, gives free rein to the imagination of the woman who chooses this fragrance for her skin.
Less abstract than its forebears, the composition of N°5 L’EAU radiates citrus like sun-drenched honey. Top notes of lemon, mandarin and orange soar skyward with the aldehydes. Like a second wind, you can hear the rustle of flowers. Rose melds with airy jasmine and a new fraction of ylang-ylang, more modern than ever. Behind this floral whirlwind, vetiver and cedar impart a novel dynamism, softened by white musks notes. Never has N°5 been so natural. So fresh.
N°5 L’EAU is worn freely. With no preconceived ideas. Instinctively. Simply. Lavishly. Day. Night. For you. For others.
Ritual? There is no ritual. N°5 L’EAU is worn non-stop. Apply on skin and clothing in a spontaneous, carefree and generous spray. Renew as often as desired.

My opinion changed after I bought a bottle of this fragrance and it smells different than the one I tried in the store. I contacted the brand and they did nothing in this case. Very disappointed about the House of Chanel and this fragrance what I got and have a bottle of smells like a very old Grandma who got nose blind and smells everything.
This is a lovely lasting timeless kind of scent that suits the Chanel range. At the price I would not say this is an everyday scent for most people but it depends on your budget I guess. I tend to keep it for special times rather than everyday!
A timeless fragrance that you could wear any season and day or night.
Fresh citrus and floral notes that last well for an EDT
Nice spray dispenser
Plain bottle, nothing special but its with Chanel look.
Expensive for an EDT but then does last well on both skin and clothes
This is a nice light version of Chanel Now and forever and has top notes of citrus scents of mandarin, lemon and orange. The middle notes are floral, rose , jasmine and ylang ylang and the base notes are cedar and musk. I find the floral notes stay well and blend nicely with the deeper musk and cedar.
Sillage is good to as people do comment on my nice perfume when I ear it.
- Simple and stylish packaging and bottle.
- A very fresh and 'clean' floral fragrance with soft musky notes.
- Excellent projection and longevity, particularly for an EDT.
- Suitable for day or evening.
Quite expensive for an EDT.
A high quality fresh and floral fragrance that's suitable for day or evening.
