1920. For Gabrielle Chanel, Venice is a revelation — and a new start. Shaken by the loss of her great love, Boy Capel, she falls under the spell of a city rich in contrasts. The glimmer of the Byzantine mosaics and precious gems of St. Mark’s Basilica inspire the designs of her first jewellery collections. PARIS-VENISE evokes this captivating city that marks the boundary between East and West.

“With PARIS-VENISE, I wanted a fresh fragrance, but with a round and soft expression.”
