A clas­sic icon, re­vis­ited.

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The Beauty -

Car­ry­ing all the soul and pres­tige of Chanel N˚5, but with a mod­ern del­i­cacy not found in the orig­i­nal, Eau Pre­mière strikes that in­tri­cate bal­ance of vin­tage charm and sub­tle sen­su­al­ity. The time­less com­bi­na­tion of neroli, ylang-ylang, rose, and jas­mine is al­lur­ing as ever, un­der­scored by lush musk, san­dal­wood, and vanilla. Did you know? Found only in ver­dant Grasse, the rosa cen­tifo­lia and jas­mine grown there are al­most ex­clu­sively used just for Chanel N˚5. Each picker har­vests 1kg of roses (around 350 flow­ers) ev­ery 12 min­utes, which re­sults in only 1.5g of liq­uid ab­so­lute. De­sign file: Of all vials pre­sented to Gabrielle Chanel by per­fumer Ernest Beaux in 1920, only the fifth spoke to her. “That is what I have been wait­ing for. A per­fume like noth­ing else. A woman’s per­fume, with the scent of a woman.”
