CHANEL - Heritage
CHANEL launched its first fragrance in 1921. The iconic Nº5. A fragrance that combined Ernest Baux's mastery in the creation of fragrances, with the character and vision that she imprinted on everything she did as Gabrielle Chanel. In this way, Chanel, as a haute couture house, entered the world of perfumery. Since then the House has created an extensive collection of fragrances.
Here we want to point out fragrances that are historical references and that we can continue to enjoy today, despite the fact that they were created many years ago. Beginning with the Nº5 of 1921, it is followed by the Nº22 of 1922, Gardénia of 1925, Bois des iles of 1926 and Cuir de Russie of 1927. In this selection the versions of the Extracts are represented, however the fragrances were originally conceived with other concentrations. It should be noted that when Chanel creates fragrances of different concentrations, they also slightly change their composition so that the experience in each case is familiar but subtly different.
