I AM
AN IDEA

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 realized 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. 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 olfactive 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

I AM AN IDEA

A fragrance is a creation, an elaboration of the mind.
An idea—imagined, tailored, composed—that answers to an ever-changing desire. It is a unique story.

A GARMENT

CHANEL fragrances are assembled and tailored like a garment. They fit, they are worn. They have colours, textures and are suitable to the seasons.

A NEGLIGÉE

A fragrance reveals your inner being, your essence, your truth.

”fragrance expresses something personal, something intimate, and by that, it becomes an instrument of seduction.”

— Olivier Polge

A STYLE

A CHANEL fragrance is a style, an allure, an elegance, a signature.
A garment.

To wear a CHANEL fragrance is to choose a style that goes beyond fashion.

A PERSONALITY

A CHANEL fragrance marks a presence.
When worn, it transforms to express your singularity.

”I am a designer of couture. I want a fragrance that is a composition, like a dress.”

— Gabrielle Chanel
