Go On A Scent-Inspired Journey With Les Eaux De Chanel
French perfumer Olivier Polge took charge of the development of the three new fragrances, which pay homage to three destinations much-loved by the French house's founder, Gabrielle Chanel.
The first destination in the collection "Paris-Deauville," which draws its inspiration from the Normandy coast, combines zesty notes of orange and petit-grain with basil, rose oil, jasmine and patchouli.
Next stop the Basque Country with the bracing Atlantic signature of "Paris-Biarritz," which brings together scents of grapefruit and mandarin, complemented by notes of lily of the valley, vetiver and white musks.

The final journey in the collection, "Paris-Venise" is inspired by the splendor of the Orient. The fragrance combines citrus fruit and red berries with scents of iris, geranium rosat, cedar wood, and amber.
