N°5 L'eau

The fresh N°5

N°5 L’EAU is a vibrant abstract floral.

Radiant Citrus top notes soar with aldehydes, followed by a floral whirlwind of Jasmine, Rose and Ylang-Ylang, and then the dynamic liveliness of Vetiver and Cedar.


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 2016, Olivier Polge, CHANEL In-House Perfumer Creator, reinvented N°5 by dissecting the original formula and taking hold of each ingredient to create an ideal balance of freshness.


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.
