THE AL­LURE: Arthur Ed­ward “Boy” Capel, Coco Chanel’s great­est love, was the driv­ing force of this cre­ation. Their af­fair, how­ever brief, tran­scended time and formed much of Chanel’s essence. Boy was a man that em­bod­ied so­phis­ti­ca­tion, im­pec­ca­ble taste, and mas­cu­line sen­su­al­ity— all trans­lated into this bot­tle to be worn per­fectly by the Chanel woman. BE IN­SPIRED: Chanel de­fied gen­der style stereo­types, rein­vent­ing the fe­male sil­hou­ette us­ing a fab­ric-like jersey that had never been deemed lux­u­ri­ous. Much like Boy and Coco’s union, this scent blurs the line with laven­der, coumarin, and moss. DID YOU KNOW? While their love story ended when Boy lost his life, his be­liefs con­tin­ued to in­spire Coco to her great­est height of suc­cess.
