I AM A NOSE

A composer who translates notes into scents. An artisan who shapes an idea. An inventor who gives substance to an inspiration. A creator who tailors a fragrance like a garment. Olivier Polge is the nose who is sensitive to the times and to the spirit of CHANEL.

A COMPOSER

« When I was 20 years old, I started to learn the métier, and I discovered that music and fragrance share the same language. I realised that I had to compose and write formulas made of notes and harmonies. »

– Olivier Polge

AN OPUS

In this new composition of N°5, a unique facet of the fragrance is highlighted. The focus is on citrus, especially orange and bergamot. The floral notes of jasmine and ylang-ylang are amplified; they breathe. A woody, cedar facet infuses the fragrance with more energy and spontaneity. An olfactory balance with surprising freshness.

A CREATOR

« CHANEL N°5 has something to say; a part of it is quite contemporary. Reinventing the fragrance today says how relevant it is. »

– Olivier Polge
