The new Icon: Chanel Gabrielle EDP

Female (Singapore) - - F-EDIT -

At the press preview, we were lit­er­ally given only a peek at this scent ($185) through a pin­hole, but some­times a peek is all that’s needed. Its bot­tle re­sem­bles so closely that of the fa­mous No. 5 (the shape is just more square, the glass thin­ner to ap­pear sleeker, and the cap is in metal, not glass) – a clear hint at how sig­nif­i­cant it’s meant to be. Fac­tor in how it’s the brand’s first new fra­grance in 15 years that’s not a spin-off, and a fresh take on clas­si­cally fem­i­nine per­fumes (nose Olivier Polge calls it an “ab­stract flo­ral” with its mix of vel­vety ylang-ylang, creamy tuberose, milky san­dal­wood, and zesty or­ange blos­som with man­darin peel), and you’re star­ing at the next scent to be on ev­ery woman’s “want list” for ages.
