PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

PRODUCT

When Gabrielle Chanel created N°5 Parfum with perfumer Ernest Beaux in 1921, she launched a revolution in a bottle. It was the first of its kind—groundbreaking for Beaux’s innovative use of aldehydes, or synthetic components that add layers of complexity, making N°5 shockingly modern in an era of single-note scents. As the most potent symbol of the elegant simplicity for which CHANEL is renowned, N°5 has since become more than a fragrance. It is an olfactory heritage: an idea of femininity, a masterpiece of refinement, passed on from generation to generation. The now and forever fragrance.

Designed in 1921 by Mademoiselle herself, the minimal lines and plain white label of The Classic Bottle were as surprising as the fragrance. The chiseled stopper was inspired by the geometry of Paris’s Place Vendôme, which Mademoiselle could gaze at from the balcony of her room at the Ritz. Over the years, only subtle changes have been made to the original design in order to preserve its stunning contemporary aesthetic.

Since the creation of N°5, CHANEL has practiced the art of baudruchage to seal bottles of Parfum. Performed entirely by hand, the technique consists of placing a fine membrane over the neck of the bottle and holding it in place with 2 rows of pearl-cotton thread. It is then closed with a black wax stamp. From this moment, a pact of exclusiveness is assured: The bottle can only be opened by the individual for whom it is destined.

COMPOSITION

A bouquet of abstract flowers is how Mademoiselle described N°5, a floral-aldehydic fragrance whose formula requires no fewer than 80 ingredients. At first, the scent unfolds with a stunning surge of ylang-ylang and neroli. Then, a perfect harmony of voluptuous May rose and sensuous jasmine from Grasse emerges, followed by a vibrant woody base of sandalwood, bourbon vetiver and vanilla. Aldehydes provide an airy freshness. An ever-changing fragrance with no single dominant note, N°5 boasts the incredible power of being able to be interpreted differently based on the wearer, revealing their uniqueness.

ART OF PERFUMING

Parfum is the most precious, concentrated and long-lasting form of fragrance, with its own specific application. Mademoiselle’s advice was to apply it “wherever you would like to be kissed.” Neck, wrist, décolleté… Apply a drop of Parfum on each pulse point, letting it develop on your skin and feeling the fragrance echo the beat of your heart.

    This is the most incredible version of No. 5. The opening is unlike the others. So sensual and woody with notes that still make it stand out. No. 5 may not be everyone's cup of tea, but even if it isn't your favorite you must try this version. It is warm, beautiful, and unisex.

    Chanel made a mistake and cancelled my first order. Had to reorder and the gift arrived after Christmas. You did not ship overnight. You should have since the mistake was made by YOU.

No 5 Parfum is a stunning gift to show my mother how very much she means to me and our family. She loves the fragrance and has worn if for as long as I can remember (more than 50 years!). The experience of opening this gift is just a delight.

Our daughter loves it (and the last bottle we gave her broke 😰)

This is a birthday present for my daughter. I am familiar with Chanel number 5. I was surprised that my daughter loved this, which I consider a very old fragrance. It has certainly withstood the test of time. I could not find Chanel number 5 perfume anywhere on the internet. When I delved into your website more closely, I discovered that you offer the actual perfume.. I am just sorry that no larger bottles were available, but I know my daughter wii love this.

Is the 0.5 FL. OZ. A spray?
Guest U on Sep 2, 2023
BEST ANSWER: The N°5 Parfum features a chiseled stopper that helps to dab the fragrance directly on your skin. The chiseled stopper was inspired by the geometry of Paris’s Place Vendôme, which Mademoiselle could gaze at from the balcony of her room at the Ritz.
