"I almost fainted with happiness the first time I saw a Coromandel..." Gabrielle Chanel confessed. Although they were made in China, the screens were named after India's Coromandel coast, from where they were shipped around the world. Mademoiselle Chanel was captivated by their delicate motifs incised into black lacquer and covered her walls with the sophisticated screens to imbue her charmingly classic Paris apartment with a touch of exoticism and poetry.
Composed by Olivier Polge, Perfumer-Creator for the House of CHANEL, COROMANDEL Parfum is an intensely ambery oriental fragrance. The heart has been heightened to give the fragrance even greater warmth and fullness. Swirls of frankincense and Andalusian labdanum convey a darker ambery note with smoky accents that lends the fragrance a noble quality. An exotic and fabulous enchantment.
