40 Days and 40 Nights of Beauty Cult Classics
Day 30 , Donna Karan Chaos
I am unable to review this fragrance. I have never tried it. It was long gone by the time I arrived on MUA's perfume boards. It was already a fragrance legend in the league of Catherine Deneuve. These bottles went for outrageous prices on Ebay and inspired dupes.
The old timers gushed over Chaos's smoke and woody charms. The newbies had to make do with Black Cashmere.
It is theorized that the notes in Chaos range from saffron to patchouli. Most fans can agree on the notes of cinnamon, incense, amber and woods.
What makes this discontinued fragrance a cult classic?
Last year a fellow muaer posted that she found a bottle of Chaos in her local TJ Maxx. The fragrance board had a visible meltdown.
There was congratulations, disbelief, envy and greed in that brief post.
That next week, all of us combed our TJ Maxx for Chaos bottles. None of us were successful.
To this day, we all still look.
It is like finding a Birkin bag at Goodwill or a Tiffany lamp at a garage sale....it ain't gonna happen.
But you still hope and dream for that big score.
If you have been blessed with sniffing Chaos let us know in the comments. Let us know what we are missing.
