Today is your chance to see the new edition of N°5 Eau de Parfum designed to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the legendary scent: the collector’s bottle with Coco’s lucky number on the label.
This was the favorite fragrance of Marilyn Monroe Andy Warhol made the screenprints of it. Moreover, it was N°5’s that made Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel a wide world star.
But what is it about Chanel N°5 that makes it stand out from the crowd in terms of smell and style?
Grasse jasmine, rose, ylang-ylang, and neroli are among the 80 fragrances in this world-famous elixir. Its chemical composition contains so many aldehydes that it’s like squeezing lemon juice over strawberries to enhance the flavor and give the scent a dazzling, champagne-like sparkle. Surely, aldehydes had been included in scents before, they had never been employed in such massive amounts. This unusual mix gave the flower bouquet its contemporary edge, which it still has today.
Ask for the Moon
The 100th-anniversary collector’s edition with the name Ask For The Moon is a floral aldehyde fragrance for ladies. This is a brand-new fragrance. The limited edition was released in 2021. Peach, bergamot, rose, sandalwood, and, of course, aldehydes, are among the most famous fragrance notes.
You can order it for the price that starts from $150 on Chanel’s official website.
