I don’t recall how many years I have been wearing Chanel, but it is a fragrance, of all others, which brings me pleasure. It lasts a long time. So long in fact that I nearly fainted when I purchased a new bottle, usually a gift from my husband, whose generosity I now see I should have appreciated all the more. The price has obviously gone up!
I hate to blame anything on MY AGE, as if the number of years I’ve lived explains everything, but I’m feeling nostalgic about this empty bottle. It has provided the finishing touches to years worth of activities…weddings, funerals, baptisms, travel, ballet performances, dinner parties, lunch with dear friends, date nights, countless meetings, lectures, classes, author readings, events of all kinds that enrich my life.
THE LEGENDARY FRAGRANCE
Going about my ordinary life I missed this Chanel Ad and intend to change my ways as I open this new bottle. Wouldn’t you?
“Created by Gabrielle Chanel to be the ultimate in femininity,N°5 has cast a spell on millions of women and men around the world. Inimitably luxurious and infinitely seductive, its legend lives, each year adding to its mystery, its depth, its desirability.”
I now intend to become a seductive woman of mystery, desirability, and any other trouble I can get into living long enough to need the bottle of Chanel that comes after this one.
PS: When I’m gone, I hope my grandchildren will catch a whiff of the Chanel I wear and say to themselves…this makes me think of Grammy! A lovely way to be remembered, don’t you agree?
