NEW Chanel N°5 Parfum Bottle Woman's 30ml 1FL. OZ. Fragrance France RARE SIZE
When Gabrielle Chanel created N°5 Parfum with perfumer Ernest Beaux in 1921, she launched a revolution in a bottle. It was the first of its kind — ground-breaking for Beaux’s innovative use of aldehydes, or synthetic components which add layers of complexity, making N°5 shockingly modern in an era of single-note scents. As the most potent symbol of the luxurious simplicity for which Chanel is renowned, N°5 has since become more than a fragrance. It is an olfactory heritage: an idea of femininity, a masterpiece of chic, passed on from generation to generation. The now and forever fragrance.
Since the creation of N°5, Chanel has practiced the art of baudruchage to seal bottles of parfum. Performed entirely by hand, the technique consists of placing a fine membrane over the neck of the bottle and holding it in place with two rows of pearl-cotton thread. It is then closed with a wax seal. From this moment, a pact of exclusiveness is sealed: the bottle can only be opened by the woman for whom it is destined.
A bouquet of abstract flowers is how Gabrielle Chanel described N°5, a floral-aldehydic fragrance whose formula requires no less than eighty ingredients. At first, the scent unfolds with a stunning surge of Ylang-Ylang and Neroli (bitter orange tree blossom). Then, a perfect harmony of voluptuous May Rose and sensuous Jasmine from Grasse emerges, followed by a vibrant woody base of Sandalwood, Bourbon Vetiver and Vanilla. An ever-changing fragrance with no single dominant note, N°5 boasts the incredible power of being able to be interpreted differently based on the wearer, thus revealing each woman’s uniqueness.
