CHANEL has designed a white and gold limited-edition case for the holidays, which opens to reveal the elegantly presented N°5 Eau de Parfum.
This floral bouquet, composed around May rose and jasmine, features bright citrus top notes. Aldehydes create a unique presence, while the smooth touch of bourbon vanilla yields an incredibly sensual sillage.
The iconic N°5 fragrance, housed in a white and golden box designed especially for the holiday season.
In 1921, Gabrielle Chanel asked perfumer Ernest Beaux to create “a woman’s perfume, with a woman’s scent.” He presented her with a visionary composition that made unprecedented use of aldehydes. Mademoiselle chose the fifth sample and decided to name it simply N°5. She selected a bottle with a revolutionary design, adorned with a white label and topped with a faceted cabochon. In 1986, CHANEL perfumer Jacques Polge reinterpreted his predecessor’s work to develop a fuller version of N°5: the Eau de Parfum.
