Every summer has its different taste. Every holiday has, for me, a different scent: a hint of salt will remind me of Normandy days, the scent of green leafs and roasted tomatoes will take me to Italy, the orange will remind me of sunny Spain. Therefore, it’s such great news that Chanel, one of the masters in perfumery business, has decided to bring the scent of holiday into our perfumes. Deauville, Venice, Biarritz: Chanel’s newest fragrance Les Eaux de Chanel will take us on olfactory adventure through Europe.

Inspired by three of Gabrielle Chanel’s favorite places, Les Eaux de Chanel are the rewriting of a new sensorial olfactory structure. Forget the usual fruity-florals, these scents are meant to plunge us into unfamiliar territory with remarkable, interesting juices that still promise a lasting freshness when worn on the skin. Paris-Deauville is a biting, green scent, with the energy of orange rind and basil leaf, while Paris-Venise captures the sumptuousness of the Orient with a cottony twist. The three identical Les Eaux de Chanel bottles differ only by the names inscribed on the front and the colour of the fragrance.
“More than the actual reality of the destination, I liked the idea urbanites make of it when they dream of a weekend away in the country. I wasn’t striving to capture the Normandy countryside as it stands today, but rather the promise of a stroll through the tall grasses”, said Olivier Polge, the nose behind these beauties.
“The creation of Eau de Chanel Paris-Venise draws inspiration as much from the long journey on the Orient Express from the French capital to the Italian city, as from the destination itself,” explains perfumer Olivier Polge.
“Paris-Biarritz is the most aquatic fragrance in Les Eaux de Chanel collection,”, said Olivier Polge. “I wanted to create a sensation on the skin as if each ingredient were soaked with water.”
