Not Mademoiselle Chanel and not Coco: Gabrielle. The new fragrance, created by perfumer Olivier Polge, is intended to pay tribute to the brave and rebellious character of a woman who at one time found the strength to rise above the circumstances and write her name in the history of fashion.
The name Gabrielle was given to Chanel at birth, and it is this name that reflects her true character - freedom-loving and independent, dressed in natural grace and fragile beauty. The inspiration for Olivier Polge was the personality of the founder of Chanel: in a refined, ideally designed geometrically, a bottle made of transparent glass, a radiant golden essence is carefully hidden, revealing itself on the skin in a sparkling cheerful accord.
Gabrielle Chanel, like most of the Maison's perfume masterpieces, is a fragrance with bright floral notes. However, here Olivier Polge decided to recreate a fantastic flower that does not exist in nature, but which would be quite recognizable at the same time. He opens the composition with a tangerine-grapefruit accord, which then begins to play the confident sound of ylang-ylang, jasmine and tuberose, set off by the viscous notes of sandalwood and musk.
The face of the fragrance is the longtime muse of the House, Kristen Stewart, who earlier, by the way, participated in the advertising campaign for the CHANEL'S GABRIELLE bag, also dedicated to the founder of the French brand.
