Chanel's penchant for creating classics doesn't only apply to their fashion. Their collection of perfumes and body sprays have that distinctively timeless (and distinctively Chanel) quality, too, and we're not just talking about the N°5. Adding a bottle or two to your collection is hard to regret, because once you find a Chanel fragrance you love, you'd definitely use it 'til the last drop. Ahead, we list the best-selling scents from the brand to aid your choosing:
Chanel Philippines' Top 10 Perfumes of 2019
1. Chanel Chance Eau Tendre Eau de Parfum Spray
Eau Tendre is the sharp, fruity descendant of Chanel's original Chance perfume. The opening citrus notes will give you that burst of freshness with every spray before it mellows down to the jasmine and rose at the scent's heart, just like its predecessor. Needless to say, it's top-shelf-worthy, and many Chanel fans locally seem to agree.

2. Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum Intense Spray
This iteration of Coco Mademoiselle will make you fall in love with the sweet and musky punch of patchouli. You might even love it enough to shelf some of your other favorite citrus perfumes. It's intense, warm, but by no means heavy—the kind that'll turn heads at a party in the best way possible.

3. Chanel Bleu de Chanel Parfum Spray
Gents, look no further for your next signature scent. Bleu de Chanel is the perfect mix of bright, spicy, and clean that'll hook anyone who wears it instantly. The woody whiff you'll catch in the end is from the cedar and sandalwood from new Caledonia, which gives the perfume a sophisticated, powerful flair.

4. Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum Spray
Being inspired by a young Coco Chanel should tell you enough about this popular pink bottle. But if it helps, it's a strong, feminine fragrance with a light touch of orange and the elegance of jasmine and rose. Of course, there's the patchouli base that makes it distinctively Chanel.

5. Chanel N°5 Eau de Parfum Spray
The classic that is the Chanel N°5 is, coincidentally, the brand's fifth best-selling perfume in the country. We're guessing it's because Marilyn Monroe used to swear by this scent (she wears it to bed, as her popular quote goes) or just because it's become such a representative for powdery, floral fragrances that ooze femininity.

6. Chanel Chance Eau Fraiche Eau de Toilette Spray
This eau de toilette takes the guesswork out of looking for a fresh-smelling fragrance you can wear practically every day. In fact, fraîche is literally "fresh" in French, so Chanel's intention with this sparkling, slightly-woody version of Chance is pretty clear.

7. Chanel Gabrielle Chanel Eau de Parfum Spray
Gabrielle Chanel isn't for the faint of heart. It's for the floral fragrance fanatics who aren't afraid of getting a strong whiff of jasmine and ylang-ylang before any of the citrus kicks in. Just like Gabrielle Chanel herself, it's the kind of perfume that's rebellious, feminine, and undeniably classic.

8. Chanel N°5 L'Eau Eau de Toilette Spray
The N°5 L'eau provides a fresher, modern take on the original N°5 from the '20s. The top notes are vibrant splashes of lemon, mandarin, and orange, which breathe life into the distinct floral and musky essence of the scent. Basically, it's the lighter, more approachable N°5, and it could be the perfect introduction if you're just dipping your toes into the Chanel fragrance family.

9. Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau de Parfum Spray
The Allure Homme Sport series has all the no-fail notes for a distinctively sharp and clean men's fragrance. That said, the Sport Eau Extreme stands out not because it's the EDP, but because of the way its herby cypress note adds a sheer veil of freshness over the potent musk. It's one you can wear to any occasion, whether you're trying to erase all traces of that gym smell or heading to date night with your significant other.

10. Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau de Toilette Spray
The Allure Homme EDT offers the simplicity many look for in an aquatic citrus scent. It's still spicy and warm, but you'll have to wait until the end for the white musk and tonka bean to hit your senses—like the last course of a good meal. While the scent develops to its last stage, though, it'll have you and everyone around you enjoy the sparkle of Italian mandarins and the sea.
