Scent Type: Powdery Floral
Key Notes: Jasmine, Rose
Created in 1921 by Gabrielle Chanel and perfumer Ernest Beaux, N°5 was a visionary, avant-garde fragrancean abstract scent in an era of single-note florals. In 2008, Jacques Polge, the Chanel perfumer at the time, reinterpreted his predecessor's radical composition by approaching N°5 from a new angle, revealing its hidden side: EAU PREMIÈRE, a light, airy, luminous version of the now and forever fragrance.
The voluptuousness of Ylang-Ylang from the Comoros blends into the harmonious and delicate facets of May Rose and Jasmine. The Ylang-Ylang here is more discreet, giving softness and transparency to the top notes. The opulence of Jasmine from Grasse is more sheer, revealing a soft and subtle facet of N°5. Aldehydes grant it a unique presence, and the smooth touch of Vanilla and musky notes create an incredibly feminine trail.
HOW TO APPLY
EAU PREMIÈRE is a fragrance meant for more generous use. In an elegant spray format for easy application on skin or clothing.
-Fragrance is intensified by the warmth of your own body. Apply in the creases of your knees and elbows for a longer-lasting, stronger scent.
-After applying, avoid rubbing or dabbing skin. This breaks down the fragrance, causing it to wear off more quickly.
-If you prefer placing fragrance on your wrists, be sure to reapply after frequent hand-washing, as this tends to rinse off the scent.
-Replace fragrance after 12 months. Expired perfumes more than a year old lose the integrity of the original scent.
Eau de Toilette or Eau de Parfum?:
The difference lies in the volume of perfume oil. While EDT contains five to nine percent, EDP contains more, usually eight to 14 percent. EDPs, therefore, last longer and smell more intense.
