N°5 Parfum

The original N°5

N°5 is an abstract fragrance.

A floral bouquet of May Rose and Grasse Jasmine propelled by aldehydes.


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.

A daring fragrance, an opulent, abstract, mysterious bouquet with no dominant notes. A radical change with the unprecedented use of aldehydes, exalting molecules.

Mademoiselle gave the scent a name like a code.


A name that made all others unfashionable.


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.
