N°5, the very essence of femininity. A timeless, legendary, powdery floral bouquet. Composed using raw materials of the finest quality, the parfum is the most precious interpretation of the fragrance. A timeless, legendary fragrance that comes in a refillable purse spray you can take with you anywhere.
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. For this new fragrance, she opted for a bottle with a radical design, adorned with a white label and topped with a faceted cabochon. The unprecedented scent of the fragrance, along with its simple name and bottle, revolutionised the history of perfumery. N°5 has become a true cult fragrance.
An abstract fragrance that reveals an exquisitely powdered bouquet, the N°5 parfum is the quintessence of femininity. Top notes of Neroli from Grasse blend into the sensual, floral notes of two exceptional raw materials, May Rose and Jasmine from Grasse. Aldehydes provide airy freshness and lend an abstract effect to the fragrance.
The parfum comes in a spray for a delicate and feminine application. Gabrielle Chanel's advice was to apply it "wherever you would like to be kissed." Neck, wrist, décolleté… Dab a drop on your body's pulse points, wherever you can feel a heart beat. To revive the notes of the fragrance throughout the day, the refillable spray is a practical travel format you can slip into your purse and take with you anywhere.
