Introducing the NEW Chanel No. 5 L'EAU Fragrance
CHANEL L'EAU EAU DE TOILETTE. You know me and you don't.
In what could be the most anticipated perfume release of the year, the newest fragrance from luxury fashion house Chanel, CHANEL N°5 L'EAU Eau de Toilette, is now available from us at Kiana Beauty Melbourne.
Chanel N°5 has long been a classic fragrance, and now has gained cult status.
It was 1921 when Gabrielle Chanel commissioned perfumer Ernest Beaux to create “a woman's perfume with a woman's scent”. It was the fifth sample that Mademoiselle declared was the one, and she named it N°5.
I present my dress collections on the fifth of May, the fifth month of the year and so we will let this sample number five keep the name it has already, it will bring good luck.
Chanel N°5 quickly became recognisable, not only for its floral aldehyde notes, but for the striking bottle of “pure transparency...an invisible bottle.”
The bottle was even immortalised by legendary artist Andy Warhol in 1985.

The Chanel N°5 Eau de Toilette was launched in 1924, a warm, bright and vibrant echo of the original floral bouquet.
One of the key ingredients is the May Rose, which only blooms for about three weeks a year, and is hand-picked using a special technique. It then has to be transported to the factory within two and a half hours, otherwise the petals fall off, the scent is lost and the rose cannot be used. It is elements such as this which differentiate Chanel's fragrances, creating a purity and intensity that cannot be recreated in a laboratory.
Olivier Polge, son of Jacques Polge, succeeded his father as Chanel's head perfumer during 2013. On creating a new Chanel N°5, he started with what he calls, “the DNA of any Chanel N°5,” the flowers - Jasmine, May Rose and Ylang Ylang.
The top notes are comprised of fresh citruses - lemon, neroli, orange and tangerine.
Finally, it is a base of cedar and white musk notes which mingle to create a new, fresh sensitivity, a contemporary sexiness.
Lily-Rose Depp is the face of the Chanel N°5 L'EAU campaign. At just 17 years old, she is a ‘young woman in the image of N°5, who everyone thinks they know but is full of surprises, and continuously reinvents herself’.
Her father is American actor, Johnny Depp.
