When allure turns sensual, the mystery of a gaze, the elegance of a silhouette, the intonation of a voice all become intriguing. Like the charismatic, passionate presence of Gabrielle Chanel, ALLURE SENSUELLE — with a voluptuous Oriental note and a bright spicy accent — is the modern, magnetic fragrance of a true, radiant and intense woman.
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.
The floral, soft, Oriental fragrance is filled with mystery. Warmed with Amber of Patchouli and a touch of Bourbon Vanilla, and heightened by notes of Frankincense, Grasse Jasmine and May Rose, the Parfum is more sensual, more voluptuous.
ART OF PERFUMING
The Parfum is the quintessence of a fragrance, with its own specific application. Gabrielle Chanel's advice was to apply "wherever you would like to be kissed." Dab a drop on your pulse points — neck, wrist, décolleté— wherever you can feel the beat of your heart.
