The fragrance of all fragrances, presented in its rarest form. The most precious expression of High Perfumery, the Parfum is exalted by a monumental bottle in a limited edition dressed in Gabrielle Chanel's favorite colour: red.
The solid Baccarat crystal bottle, cut like a diamond, showcases the unique "rouge à l'or" know-how. An incomparable technique that consists of gradually fusing clear crystal and 24-carat gold powder at precisely 540 degrees Celsius. It majestically houses the fragrance within its unique design, nestled in a white leather case and wrapped in a red and white sleeve with an embossed varnish finish.
Each exceptional piece is custom-made like a genuine work of art. A mere 55 unique, numbered and hand-engraved pieces are available.
An abstract fragrance that reveals a deliciously floral 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
In 1921, Gabrielle Chanel asked Ernest Beaux to create "a woman's perfume with the scent of a woman", 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 chose a revolutionary design for the bottle, adorned with a white label and topped with a faceted cabochon.
The unique scent of N°5, along with its simple name and bottle, revolutionised the history of perfumery and has gone on to achieve cult status.
In 2018, the world's most timeless fragrance and Gabrielle Chanel's favorite colour come together for a limited edition. N°5 dressed in red.
Art of perfuming
The Parfum is applied with the faceted cabochon to pulse points on the skin: behind the earlobe, on the décolleté, and on the inside of the wrist.
