No. 5 L’Eau by Chanel Review
No. 5 L’Eau is a newer spin on the classic that retains most of what made the original signature scent special without feeling old-fashioned. There are citrusy elements and then aldehydes, although the latter can be hard to shake off for us even with the introduction of other notes. It develops into a creamy combination of florals that can be hard to pick out. We find this to be clean, but not the off-putting kind, and elegant, although still paler in comparison to Chanel no. 5. Still, it is wearable, and lasts long to boot.

Would not offend anyone, very elegant
Does not feel old-fashioned even as a flanker
Can last for hours on the skin
The aldehydes can overwhelm some of the less bitter notes
We think that this is not meant to be a signature scent because it is a little bland
Comes with a whiff of synthetic in the beginning

Everyone knows the legendary Chanel No. 5, but while a classic, it will not appeal to everyone today. The flanker No. 5 L’Eau is meant to remedy that and pique the interest of younger perfume wearers to the beauty of the original. It was created by Olivier Polge, son of former Chanel head perfumer Jacques Polge. Released in 2016, No. 5 L’Eau lists orange, lemon, mandarin, aldehydes, neroli, ylang ylang, rose, jasmine, white musk and cedar. Lily-Rose Depp was the chosen face for the fragrance.
