Come on, step onto Chanel’s work floor and discover the craftsmanship and artistry behind the creation of a fragrance icon.

Then, after years of creative processes and development, the square glass vessel was created from composite glass – codenamed Glass 15 which includes sand, soda ash, lime and broken glass – and was masterfullly heated to ensure the final product was as smooth as it was aesthetically stunning.
Meanwhile, the cap was specially molded and dipped in a mixture of gold and silver before receiving the trademark stamp at the top.
Finally, the packaging was inspired by the maison’s seasonal collections and perfectly complements the scented masterpiece within. A lesson in purity. Audaciously simple. it reveals the full radiance of the fragrance.
The fragrance appears to be suspended weightlessly within the striking, square bottle crafted of ultra-thin glass, as the four transparent sides fade into the background to let the light shine through. The label and the stopper have the same shape and indefinable lamé colour, a delicate balance between gold and silver, and the interior is warmed with an even more resplendent gold. Nestled in an imprint of its silhouette, the bottle is carefully protected by a precious interior sleeve.
Chanel’s new Gabrielle fragrance is set to be available at all leading beauty counters on September 1, 2017.
