In 1921, Gabrielle Chanel asked Ernest Beaux to create “a woman’s perfume with a woman’s scent.” Beaux presented her with a visionary composition that made unprecedented use of aldehydes. Mademoiselle chose the fifth sample of the fragrance, and decided to name it simply N5. In 1924, she launched the N5 Eau de Toilette, a warm, bright version of the now and forever fragrance.
Powerful top notes, dominated by Ylang-Ylang and Neroli, are enhanced by aldehydes. At the very heart of the fragrance is the fullness of a magnificent Floral accord with Rose and Jasmine. A base of Vanilla, Vetiver and Sandalwood create a warm and vibrant trail.
Art Of Perfuming
The Eau de Toilette comes in a spray format for more generous use, with smooth application.
