Inspired by three destinations dear to Gabrielle Chanel, LES EAUX DE CHANEL start a new chapter in the history of CHANEL fragrances. A sensation of freshness.
A journey in every spray.


The inspiration

Inspired by the pure air and energy of the Basque coast, PARIS-BIARRITZ captures the spirit and freedom of this founding city.

The fragrance

Vibrant and delicately fruity, Sicilian mandarin highlights the sparkling radiance of a lily-of-the-valley accord in this bracing fragrance like a splash of sea spray.

The inspiration

Inspired by the exotic and enchanting city of contrasts, PARIS-VENISE interprets the captivating draw of this legendary place that marks the boundary between East and West.

The fragrance

A composition of shadow and light, between freshness and sensuality, in which essence of neroli illuminates the warm tones of an oriental accord with an ambery touch of vanilla and tonka note.

Gabrielle Chanel in Venice
