A daring, distinctive fragrance. A floral-woody-green fragrance with perfect balance, housed in a bottle hand-sealed with a baudruche film. The last fragrance launched and worn by Gabrielle Chanel. An uncompromising composition, in the image of Mademoiselle.
A daring floral-woody-green fragrance that plays with contrasts.
A perfect balance between the vibrant, green notes of Galbanum and the soft, powdery notes of Iris Pallida. Neroli from Grasse, May Rose and Iris Pallida: the finest, rarest raw materials, grown in Grasse, are used in the N°19 Parfum.
N°19 is the other great number by CHANEL.
The last fragrance Gabrielle Chanel ever launched or wore. A fragrance that pays tribute to the day she was born: August 19, 1883.
When the idea for this new women's fragrance came to mind, she met with resistance from those around her who did not think a new fragrance could exist alongside N°5. But Coco refused to give up and asked Henri Robert for a composition with a personality just as strong as that of N°5. And her request was granted, in a completely different olfactory composition: a contrasting accord of green and powdery notes. Mademoiselle passed away just a few weeks after the launch of the new fragrance, on January 10, 1971.
"To be irreplaceable, you must be different": N°19 is the final masterpiece from this extraordinary, daring and radiant female personality.
Art of perfuming
The Parfum is the quintessence of a fragrance, with its own specific 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.
