Feeling a little dull with the shorter days of Fall? Bring a spark of radiance to your fragrance routine with new, limited-edition No.5 Fragments D’Or. Accented with delicate flecks of glitter, the silky, shimmering body gel not only scents skin with the now and forever fragrance, but Ieaves a subtle golden sheen so you can keep glowing well into the season.

Maison Chanel started presenting limited edition products for the winter Holiday season at the end of October 2017. One of this year’s exclusives includes shimmering body gel scented with fresh, powdery and sophisticated Chanel No.5.

The gel is inspired by the legendary perfume developed in 1921, when Gabrielle Chanel asked perfumer Ernest Beaux to create ‘a woman’s perfume with the scent of a woman’. After he  presented her with variations of the composition rich in aldehydes, she chose the fifth sample  and decided to name it simply No.5.

 

Chanel No.5 Fragments D'Or

Chanel No.5 Fragments D’Or (or N°5 Gold Fragments) is described as a silky, shimmering body gel infused with their iconic Chanel No.5 fragrance and accented with delicate flecks of golden glitter. It smells of  May Rose and Jasmine notes, as the key ingredients found at the heart of the No.5 aldehydic-floral bouquet.

Chanel No.5 Fragments D’Or is to be applied in touches on pulse points, across your décolétté, anywhere you want to highlight. No.5 Fragments D’Or is available in a 250 ml bottle as a limited edition.

While you’re bound to be familiar with No 5, No 19, Coco Mademoiselle and perhaps a few more Chanel perfumes, Les Exclusifs are the real gems. Created from 1922 onwards, these are the most rare and luxurious scents in Chanel’s armoury, ranging from florals to leathers and orientals. Each one is inspired by a key element, person or place in Coco Chanel’s life, from her Parisian apartment, 31 Rue Cambon, to her dearest friend, Misia

Exquisite precious materials, elegant bottles, timeless fragrances: ‘Les Exclusifs de Chanel’ was created between 1922 and 2016 by renowned perfumers with close links to the French fashion and beauty house. Ernest Beaux, Jacques Polge, and Olivier Polge have come up with their own interpretation of a place, texture, meeting or symbol loved by Gabrielle Chanel. Together they form a unique collection, taking us on a perfumed journey through Chanel’s history.

The collection consists of 15 4ml perfume bottles: 14 Eau de Parfum and one Eau de Cologne. An opportunity to (re)discover and appreciate a selection of rare fragrances which include hesperidium, woody, floral and oriental scents.

Fans of unusual perfumes and collectors will be pleased to discover that this set contains ‘Bel Respiro’, a floral evocation of spring, ‘Sycomore’, a woody scent based around vetiver, ‘Coromandel’ with its incense, benzoin, and patchouli notes, the oriental scent ‘Cuir de Russie’, the aromatic-floral-powdery ‘Jersey’, and the woody and fruity ‘N°18′.

The set also includes ’31 rue Cambon’, ’28 La Pausa’, ‘N°22’, ‘1932’, ‘Gardénia’, Beige’, Bois des Iles’, ‘Eau de Cologne’, and ‘Misia’, a fragrance created by Olivier Polge.

This ‘Les Exclusifs de Chanel’ set of 15 mini perfumes will go on sale on February 17 for €280, exclusively at Chanel Beauté stores and the brand’s e-shop.
