N°5 Parfum

More details

Ref. 120050


3 Sizes Available



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 — ground-breaking for Beaux’s innovative use of aldehydes, or synthetic components which add layers of complexity, making N°5 shockingly modern in an era of single-note scents. As the most potent symbol of the luxurious 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 chic, passed on from generation to generation. The now and forever fragrance.

Designed in 1921 by Gabrielle Chanel herself, the simple lines and incredibly plain white label of The Classic Bottle were as surprising as the fragrance. The chiseled stopper, cut like a diamond, was inspired by the geometry of the Place Vendôme that Gabrielle could gaze at from the balcony of her room at the Ritz in Paris. Over the years, only subtle changes have been made to the original design in order to preserve its stunningly 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 two rows of pearl-cotton thread. It is then closed with a wax seal. From this moment, a pact of exclusiveness is sealed: the bottle can only be opened by the woman for whom it is destined.


A bouquet of abstract flowers is how Gabrielle Chanel described N°5, a floral-aldehydic fragrance whose formula requires no less than eighty ingredients. At first, the scent unfolds with a stunning surge of Ylang-Ylang and Neroli (bitter orange tree blossom). 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. 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, thus revealing each woman’s uniqueness.


Parfum is the most precious, concentrated and long-lasting form of fragrance, with its own specific application. Gabrielle Chanel'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.

A friend is getting married and her mother wore this fragrance. It’s a gift to the bride to be.

Yesterday while cleaning in the bathroom I dropped my little bottle of No 5. It was a treasured gift, still in the box. I've kept it unused for years. Naturally I was broken-hearted. So I decided I had to replace it and promptly went online today for a new one. Chanel gifts are so special.

Classic - I have loved this scent over 20 years

Chanel No 5 is among the ultimate gifts you can give a woman you care for so she understands that you truly love her
Guest E on Jul 25, 2020
Truth is I don’t wear anything but Chanel. Because I can purchase No.5 in a non spray form from Chanel’s website make me comfortable knowing I will get what I’ve paid for. No.5, for me, is God’s gift to women. Very plain and simple. To trust a fragrance to anyone else is just foolish
Deborah Betty F on Jul 12, 2020
I am third-generation Chanel; my mother and grandmother wore this fragrance. I was taught well and know that worldwide, Chanel embodies elegance, grace, and sophistication.

What is the difference between eau de parfum and parfum? Eau de toilette? Cologne?
Marj R on Sep 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The highest concentration of a fragrance is the pure perfume (or Parfum). An Eau de Parfum would contain the second highest level of the fragrance oil,next would follow an Eau de Toilette, and finally the Eau de Cologne.

A Parfum has the highest concentration of the fragrance oil while a Cologne would have the least amount of fragrance oil and is the lightest of the fragrance levels.
Is the 7.5ml of the No. 5 parfum a spray or have a stopper?
monica w on Sep 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: N°5 is a floral-aldehydic fragrance whose formula requires no less than eighty ingredients and is an ever-changing fragrance with no single dominant note. Please know that our N5 parfum is the most pure form of our fragrance that allows you to apply a drop of Parfum on each pulse point, letting it develop on your skin using our iconic stopper from our parfum bottles.
The Parfume come in a spray or stopper bottle???
Trina G on Aug 21, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Our N°5 Parfum comes with a stopper that helps to dab the fragrance directly on your skin.
Does the pure parfume smell differently from the eau de parfume spray?
Tonilynn T on Jan 4, 2020
BEST ANSWER: While both our N5 Parum and N5 Eau De Parfum Spray offer slightly different interpretations of the classic N5 fragrance, they slightly differ in intensity by the top notes that are presented in each fragrance. This makes wearing each fragrance a slightly different sensoral experience.
