Throughout my freshman and sophomore years, I went to school in Boston and I d go search around after classes.

Its like a somewhat more powder-y version of the renowned No. 5 and lasts forever. Actually, sometimes I will shower in the evening and still smell it the next day.

One day, I entered into Chanel and got a lots of samples of this line of fragrances they have that you can just purchase in the store or through Chanel solely. I quickly fell in love with 22.
