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.
