A new destination Chanel Paris-Riviera

 

Chanel Paris-Riviera-01.jpg

French Maison Chanel launches a new perfume for both men and women simply named Paris-Riviera. Chanel Paris Riviera is all you need to have if you want to look stylish, modern, and memorable.

Launched in 2018, the Les Eaux de Chanel collection opened a whole new realm of olfactory sensations in the world of Chanel fragrances: one of freshness and elegance in any situation. Inspired by Gabrielle Chanel’s favorite destinations, and created by Olivier Polge, Les Eaux de Chanel adds a new destination: Paris-Riviera. Rare and exclusive, the new motionless escape will be available for one year starting June 1, 2019

Paris-Riviera is a floral and luminous fragrance that reflects the joyful, sunny spirit of the Côte d’Azur in the 1920s.

Olivier Polge

The mere mention of its name conjures up images of a coastline winding its way between the Alps and the Mediterranean. Bringing the promise of azure blue and dancing sunlight, the Riviera evokes an enveloping softness and the lazy days of summer. From the far south bordering Italy and Monte Carlo to the Var, artists and creators from around the world were drawn to this Mediterranean coast as early as the 1920s. Thanks to her friend Misia Sert who introduced her to Venice, the gateway to the Orient, Gabrielle Chanel began sojourning on the Riviera in 1920.

She loved driving to Monaco with the Grand Duke Dimitri or travelling south on the Train Bleu, a means of transport made famous by Serge de Diaghilev who wrote a ballet by the same name and entrusted the costume design to Mademoiselle Chanel. She could often be found on the Côte d’Azur during the Roaring Twenties, one day on the Duke of Westminster’s yacht in Monte Carlo, another at her regular haunt, the Hôtel de Paris in Monaco, or at the Société des Bains de Mer resort known for its legendary parties. Gabrielle Chanel also frequented Cannes, where she opened a boutique, and joined the painters and writers who flocked to Saint-Tropez, which was but a fishing port at the time.

The Côte d’Azur dream of the 1920s is what guided the development of this new fragrance. A sun-filled Eden that was a magnet for artists. The flawless architecture of the villas in those days. The bright and happy atmosphere of party nights….

Olivier Polge

But a little to the East, on the heights of Roquebrune, is where she chose to point her compass and have her villa La Pausa built. Mademoiselle oversaw every last architectural detail, and had olive groves and fields of lavender planted. She made it her permanent vacation home, where she entertained a number of celebrities such as The Begum Andrée Aga Khan, Begum Om Habibeh Aga Khan, Jean Cocteau and Salvador Dalí. There in her beloved southern France, Gabrielle Chanel wove a tapestry of moments suspended in time and joyful memories.

The fantasy-filled world of the Riviera inspired perfumer-creator Olivier Polge to compose a luminous and elegant fragrance.

Woven with Sicilian and Calabrian citrus, Chanel Paris-Riviera invite you to travel, to escape without reason and sail away. With Les Eaux de Chanel, there is no need to go anywhere to savor the scent of faraway places on the skin.

The perfumer noticed a remarkable lightheartedness in the pictures of Gabrielle Chanel surrounded by friends, her face upturned to the sun, and incarnated it with a fragrance of Mediterranean flowers bathed in fresh citrus. He teamed jasmine with a unique quality of neroli from the orange blossoms found in the South of France.

Top notes: Petitgrain, Orange zest
Hart: Jasmin, Neroli
Basis: Benzoin, Musk

Chanel Paris-Riviera is a pleasant fragrant citrusy scent with hints of flowers and green notes very soft and truly romantic. As many Chanel perfumes, this one is not an exception of being remarkably sensual, warm spicy, not too pungent, yet long-lasting and luring. 

For years, we have worked with a cooperative in Vallauris that distills orange blossoms grown in the region’s private gardens. The owners of bitter orange groves bring the petals picked from their trees to this cooperative to be processed on location. The local climate yields an extremely pure essence.

Olivier Polge

Chanel Paris-Riviera is instantly recognizable on the skin: a refreshing veil of orange peel and petit grain. Then emerges the pairing of jasmine and neroli with enveloping fullness. Over time, an irresistible softness fuses with the floral impression : it is the work of benzoin balm and sandalwood. The airy signature scent of the Les Eaux de Chanel collection creates a snapshot of summer with a single spray. A promise of azure blue and sun on the skin. A one-way trip to a legendary Mediterranean coast.

Chanel Paris-Riviera-07.jpgThe flacon of Paris – Riviera remains the same as the previous editions of the collection. Simplicity and elegance are reflected in the clear lines of the glass and the  cap engraved with the iconic double C and wrapped in a corrugated cardboard case that evokes the rippling of the sea water as it recedes from the beach and leaves its marks in the sand. Its special pump encourages generous perfuming with an enveloping mist that has the effect of a soft and delicate cloud.

Available in limited edition from June 1, 2019 to May 31, 2020 at Chanel Boutiques and on Chanel.com. Chanel Paris – Riviera is available as 125ml Eau de Toilette. Come into the wonderful world of Chanel.

This summer, Light Blue’s fruity floral signature takes on a new sunny, sensual quality, as though warmed by the languorous heat of the Capri sun. Light Blue’s mouth-watering top notes of tangy Italian lemon and juicy Granny Smith apple are quenched with a liberal splash of cool, refreshing coconut water, and sharpened by the crisp sea sprays of the ozonic accord. The original heart of sensual jasmine and feminine white rose is now infused with exotic frangipani, creating a heady blend of sun-soaked floral nectar. In the base, aromatic cedarwood is warmed with ambrosial amber and the sweet intensity of Bourbon vanilla. Finally, a hypnotic trail of seductive white musks lingers on the skin, evoking the addictive desire of summer love.

The iconic woody, spicy scent of Light Blue Pour Homme is reinvented with a splash of freshness and suffused with the warmth of the Italian sun. A chilled cocktail of Italian bergamot and juicy frozen grapefruit is invigorated with the vibrant, spicy tang of ginger and the fresh aquatic wave of the ozonic accord. As the fragrance evolves to an intensely Mediterranean and masculine heart, the warmth of cedarwood and cypress conjure the power of the sun at its midday peak, setting aromatic rosemary against a refreshing cooler of coconut water. Woody oakmoss and sensual white musks dominate the drydown, as earthy vetiver and carnal vanilla recreate the irresistible allure of salty, sun-kissed skin.

Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Sun, the video

Lunching in the sun with her friends, she spots him working on the dock, and her imagination starts to race. Suddenly she is basking in the sun as he whispers in her ear, then stripping down to her bikini as they dive into the water.

She imagines them frolicking on the deck of a boat by the Faraglioni cliffs, and imagines him drawing her towards him in a passionate embrace. As she finally emerges from her reverie, she holds his gaze with a flirtatious smile.
