LES EAUX DE CHANEL
Vibrant and delicately fruity, Sicilian mandarin highlights the sparkling radiance of a lily of the valley accord in this dynamic fragrance that is as refreshing as a splash of sea spray.
1915. Gabrielle Chanel is taken with the sporty-yet-fashionable atmosphere of Biarritz, where she opens her first couture house near the casino, luxury hotels and beach. Balancing elegance and comfort, the silhouettes quickly captivate an international clientele, marking the genesis of CHANEL. Inspired by the pure air of the Basque coast, PARIS-BIARRITZ captures the energy of this city in a lively, fresh fragrance.

“Biarritz inspired me with the vitality of its waterfront. PARIS-BIARRITZ is a composition that reflects this spirit with its bracing, zesty and dynamic notes.”
