Characteristics of Blair Waldorf Bass’s Perfume

Though Blair Waldorf wears a few other perfumes, Chanel No. 5 is her signature scent. This is without a doubt, a true masterpiece. And as I own this fragrance, let me give you the details.

Chanel No. 5 is a long-lasting classic perfume which is known for its outstanding performance and high-quality ingredients. I like this Chanel beauty for its heartwarming aroma and somewhat unisex quality as well.

From the begining, its refreshing floral-fruity combinations lifts my mood and gives me a blast of energy to start my day.

In the middle, I sense the alluring mixture of jasmine, lily of the valley, may and iris rose. If you are a flower lover like me, you will love this core without any doubt.

In the dry-down, the soft woody hunch of sandalwood tunes with the delicious aura of vanilla, oakmoss, and patchouli’s earthy woody smell.

This masterpiece is the ideal perfume to show your unique fragrance choice which “Queen B” of Manhattan’s Upper East Side did perfectly in Gossip Girl.

So, if you love this iconic scent and want to elevate its aura by layering it with familiar accords, try out these perfumes similar to Chanel No.5. I am certain you won’t be disappointed.

Is Layering Chanel No. 5 A Good Choice?

Yes, layering Chanel No. 5 with other perfumes is a great idea to accentuate its amazing smell. You can layer it with any sort of vanilla or floral-oriented scents effortlessly.


Gucci Bloom is an outstanding floral perfume that I can’t get enough of. This iconic scent overlays with the delightful essence of Chanel No. 5 with grace and creates a more lasting aroma.

If you are a vanilla lover, you can layer Kayali- Vanilla 28 with, Chanel No. 5. The rich, sweet touch of vanilla gives a heart-melting aura that is hard to resist.

Sometimes I lather myself with Fresh Getaway by Bath & Body Works ultimate hydration body cream before applying my perfume. Let me tell you this cream works like a bread and soaks the essence of Chanel No. 5 and makes it divine and modern as time goes by.

Anyway, I got mine from Walmart because it was close to my apartment. But you can purchase it from Chanel’s store, Amazon and Nordstrom.
