Chanel's latest perfume was presented to us during Sniffapalooza's Spring Fling in New York City. Described as a burst of freshness yielding a crystalline impression. A timeless (magnolia) floral bouquet with an enveloping transparency and a sheer and spirited heart.
No formal introduction truly required, who has never heard of the founder of this fashion house? Ms. Coco Chanel born in France, also came from the most amazingly humble beginnings because she was raised partly in an orphanage after her mother's death. She became linked with very well to do gentleman while she established herself as a not so successful cabaret singer after leaving the orphanage to start her first career. Her very first boutique was located at 21 Rue Cambon (incidentally, this is a name given to one of her perfumes). This boutique was not to sell perfumes, however, but her first love, hats, which of course she designed during her second career as a seamstress and which hats were partially made well known because they were worn by a famous actress in theatrical performances throughout France. She later developed her own fashion house and perfumes including her very famous Chanel No. 5, which of course is the most widely known fragrance ever made.
Above is a special purchase made of Les Exclusifs De Chanel, available only in exclusive boutiques, (like Henry Bendel in New York City).
