N°5 Eau Première
The airy N°5
N°5 EAU PREMIÈRE shares an olfactory signature with the Parfum.
The Jasmine notes of the floral bouquet delicately reveal Ylang-Ylang from the Comoros.
In 1921, Gabrielle Chanel decided to create a fragrance unlike any other:
"A woman's perfume with the scent of a woman."
To fulfill her request, perfumer Ernest Beaux broke with the traditional codes of perfumery and presented her with an olfactory revolution.
Mademoiselle gave the scent a name like a code.
A name that made all others unfashionable.
In 2008, Jacques Polge, CHANEL Master Perfumer since 1978, offered a more luminous interpretation of N°5 with the creation of N°5 EAU PREMIÈRE.
To house N°5, Mademoiselle chose a simple laboratory bottle. A minimalist design that would highlight the fragrance.
The stopper, cut like a diamond, was inspired by the shape of the Place Vendôme in Paris. The lines of the now iconic classic bottle have remained virtually unchanged since its creation.
