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.
