N°5, the very essence of femininity. The eau de toilette is a vibrant echo of the floral bouquet launched by Gabrielle Chanel in 1921. A warm and bright version of the original fragrance, housed in a bottle with a revolutionary design and a black lacquered cap.
In 1921, Gabrielle Chanel asked Ernest Beaux to create "a woman's perfume with a woman's scent", rare and powerful. The nose presented her with a visionary composition that made unprecedented use of aldehydes. Mademoiselle chose the fifth sample of the fragrance, and decided to name it simply N°5. In 1924, she launched the N°5 eau de toilette.
The richness of a magnificent floral accord. Powerful top notes, dominated by Ylang-Ylang and Neroli, are intensified by aldehydes. The alchemy of Vanilla, Vetiver and Sandalwood create a warm and vibrant trail.
The eau de toilette comes in a bottle for sensual, feminine application. Freely apply as many drops as you wish on bare skin.
To revive the notes of the fragrance throughout the day, the eau de toilette comes in a practical travel spray you can slip into your purse and take with you anywhere. A complete perfuming ritual for the bath and body is also available to enhance its trail of scent.
