Chanel perfume - I love it but can't afford it!

Does anyone know how I can indulge my desire for Chanel No 5 or Coco for about £20? I just love the smell, but cannot justify the price tag sad. Just a tiny bottle would do. I have even thought about buying second hand on ebay maybe?

Or <<<<whispers>>>> is there a cheaper alternative I could try?

All fragrant help most welcome smile

Ebay- sometimes samples or peeps selling things they don't like.

Ta cabbage = ebay is my fall-back position smile.

I wait with hope that someone out there knows another way...

me- pm me too! [nosey]

I think that while chanel is expensive, it does last an awfully long time, as you need very little of it. I am just coming to the end of a bottle that has lasted a year (daily use, 100ml)- thats longer that lots of cheaper scents last.

Ooh, midnight, could you PM me too please? I'm intrigued, and I've just run out of my beloved Chanel 19.

I have a bottle of the lighter no 5. No 5 premier I think that is about 3/4 full. Happy to sell on to anyone who wants to pm me.

I've got a bottle of the stronger stuff that I use for myself!
