The body cream reveals the feminine and sensual accords of the notes it encloses. Its rich and voluptuous texture is applied generously, leaving the skin soft and moisturized. It subtly enhances the N°5 trail of scent.
Inspired by the silky harmony of Rose and Jasmine that composes N°5, the body cream was formulated as a soft and sensual way to enjoy the floral bouquet of N°5.
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, revolutionized the history of perfumery.
Art of perfuming
A perfuming ritual for the bath and body is used to enhance the floral bouquet of N°5. The body cream is applied generously, an enveloping and moisturizing step within the ritual.
