LES EAUX DE CHANEL
PARIS - DEAUVILLE
1913: Gabrielle Chanel opened her very first fashion boutique in Deauville. The seaside resort drew an elegant clientele who were the first to adopt her wide-brimmed hats and menswear-inspired clothing. It also brought Mademoiselle closer to the peace and quiet of the Normandy countryside.
Inspired by the landscapes along the Normandy coast, PARIS - DEAUVILLE transposes this charm to the heart of a fragrance of the open air. Pairing the green facets of basil with sparkling top notes of Sicilian mandarin, this aromatic citrus fragrance unleashes a lively, naturally radiant freshness.
PARIS - VENISE
1920: Gabrielle Chanel fell under the spell of Venice and its treasures of Byzantine and Baroque art, which became a main source of inspiration for her style.
Inspired by the exotic and enchanting city of contrasts, PARIS - VENISE interprets the captivating draw of this legendary place that marks the boundary between East and West. It is a composition of shadow and light, between freshness and sensuality, in which the essence of neroli illuminates the warm tones of an oriental accord with notes of vanilla and tonka.
PARIS - BIARRITZ
1915: Gabrielle Chanel was taken with the sporty yet fashionable atmosphere of Biarritz. She made it the location of her first couture house that caught the attention of an international clientele.
Inspired by the pure air and energy of the Basque coast, PARIS - BIARRITZ captures the spirit and freedom of this significant city. Vibrant and delicately fruity, Sicilian mandarin highlights the sparkling radiance of a lily of the valley accord in this lively fragrance that is as refreshing as a splash of sea spray.
