Chanel’s newest fragrance is intended as an homage to strong, spirited females everywhere
It was on her birth certificate, and now the name Gabrielle has been given to a new fragrance that embodies the true character and spirit of ‘Coco’ Chanel. “I decided who I wanted to be and that is who I am,” said the woman whose innate courage and style led her to become the most successful and storied fashion designer of all time. The result is a white-flower heart with more than a hint of blackcurrant, the vibe much sweeter than you’d expect of a juice denoting Chanel’s passion and determination. The bottle is exquisite – the result of innumerable technical feats. The walls converging on the bottle’s centre and the elegant blonde and rose-blonde of the label and lid are reason enough to invest in a Gabrielle of your own.
