|A happy Chanel family.|
These fragrances are all 200 ml and made in France. They are part of the Les Exlusifs De Chanel range. The design is beyond and the scents are amazing. How cute is mini-Beige by the way?
Eau De Cologne smells very clean with orangey undertones. Originally Coco Chanel created her own Eau de Cologne whihc has been reinterpreted by Jacques Polge. Ingredients include Bergamot, Mandarin Orange and some Neroli. According to Chanel it is the perfect summer fragrance and I agree.
Beige has lots of notes coming out of the bottle. I smell floral, rosey and fresh. It is described as a Nectar fragrance and it is a perfect description. Beige was one of Coco Chanel's favourite colours because they evoce elegance and grace. Jacques Polge has created a bouquet of Freesia, Frangipani, Hawthorn and a touch of Honey. Beige is perfection.
I was captured from the first moment I smelt No 18, I felt that a missing piece had been completed. It is again quite floral but with a hint of Jasmine and lots of Ambrette Flower. The fragrance is named after 18, Place Vendome which is the adress of the Chanel jewellery boutique located opposite the Ritz.
Now you must be wondering who Jacques Polge is? He is a French perfumer who has worked with Chanel since 1978 so he knows the brand and it's history very well. He is also known as Chanel's nose which is certainly something special to put on one's life resume.
Are you a Chanel-lover like me? What's your favourite fragrance?
