Mademoiselle Chanel's signature scent pays tribute to the day she was born: August 19. The last fragrance launched and worn by her, N°19 is a daring, distinctive, uncompromising composition, in the image of Mademoiselle. A floral, woody, green scent with perfect balance.
Designed in 1921, The Classic Bottle is striking in its simplicity and modernity. The chiseled stopper reflects the geometry of Place Vendôme, which Gabrielle Chanel could view from her room at the Ritz in Paris.
Since then, Chanel has practiced the art of baudruchage to seal bottles of Parfum. Carried out by hand, it consists of covering the neck of the bottle with a fine membrane, which is held in place by a strand of pearl-cotton thread, then sealed with a black wax stamp.
A play on contrasts: vibrant, green notes of Galbanum mingle with the soft, powdery notes of May Rose and Iris from Florence, along with Neroli from Grasse.
ART OF PERFUMING
Mademoiselle Chanel's advice was to apply Parfum "wherever you would like to be kissed." Neck, wrist, décolleté… Dab a drop on your body's pulse points, wherever you can feel a heart beat.
