French Maison Chanel launches Les Eaux De Chanel, a new line of three Eaux de Toilettes that will be sold exclusively at Chanel boutiques and the Chanel website starting June 2018. The collection created by perfumer Oliver Polge is named after travel routes and the ties between Gabrielle Chanel and certain cities during her career, offering ‘a sense of freshness that is as emotional as the memory of a journey’.
Inspired by three destinations beloved by Gabrielle Chanel, Les Eaux De Chanel start a new chapter in the history of Chanel fragrances. A sensation of freshness. A journey in every spray.

Inspired by the exotic and enchanting city of contrasts, Paris – Venice interprets the captivating draw of this legendary place that marks the boundary between East and West.
Chanel Paris – Venice is a fresh oriental fragrance inspired by one of the favorite cities of Gabriele Chanel – Venice. In 1920, this city meant love at first sight to her and a fresh start after the death of Boy Capel. The Baroque and Byzantine art works of Venice became an inspiration for her style. Paris – Venise as a perfume represents the border between the East and West, the contrasts of light and dark tones, as well as freshness and sensuality.
Top notes: Orange, Bergamot, Lemon, Petit grain, Pink pepper
Heart: Neroli, Iris, Rose, Geranium, Ylang-Ylang
Base: Benzoin, Orris, Tonka, Vanilla, Violet, White musk
A composition of shadow and light, between freshness and sensuality, in which essence of Neroli illuminates the warm tones of an oriental accord with ambery accords of Vanilla and Tonka.
The Les Eaux De Chanel fragrances come in simple packaging with a luxurious feel and lightweight glass flacons of a more rounded shape compared to Les Exclusifs.
Using lighter-than-usual glass, the bottle is made for you to travel with ease and it is housed inside a corrugated cardboard packaging that evokes the rippling of the seawater as it recedes from the beach and leaves its mark in the sand. The matte surface of the cardboard has densified the black ink used for each inscription, presenting an even more delicate texture of the Chanel jacket.
Equipped with a unique pump, the bottle diffuses micro-droplets of fragrance for a longer time than an ordinary spray. The pump offers an effect of a soft and gentle cloud, thus heightening the soothing, comforting sensations upon application.
From 1st June 2018 onwards, the Les Eaux De Chanel fragrance collection is available at Chanel Boutiques and Chanel Fragrance & Beauty Boutiques worldwide. Each scent will be available as a 125 ml Eau de Toilette.
