In 1921, Gabrielle Chanel asked Ernest Beaux to create "a woman's perfume with a woman's scent", intense and original. 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. The innovative scent of the fragrance, along with the rare simplicity of its name and bottle, revolutionised the history of perfumery.
The notes of N°5 are expressed at the heart of a complete perfuming ritual featuring three moments for the bath, the body and the senses. The bath invites you to relax and unwind, cocooned in the lingering notes of the fragrance, fully immersed in the world of N°5. Moisturising body products procure true moments of well-being, while new, delectable, sense-awakening textures provide the finishing touch. The first step in the perfuming ritual, the bath soap gently fragrances the skin.
