The GABRIELLE CHANEL fragrance

Find out what do you need to know about the highly anticipated fragrance from Chanel.

The wait is nearly over. The highly anticipated new launch of Gabrielle Chanel fragrance is finally here (Well, for the VIPs at least).

Why is it such a big deal of this new fragrance launch?
Well, it’s Chanel’s first new scent since Chance in 2002. It’s clearly a big deal and a celebration of its heritage for the year of Gabrielle. If you would have asked, Gabrielle Chanel is the real name of the iconic designer and Coco was merely a nickname or rather her stage name during her brief career as a singer.

 

What do I like about Gabrielle Chanel fragrance?
A little secret about myself, I have a fetish for fragrances and their bottles. I do get obsessed over perfumes bottles every time I passes by DFS. It goes without saying when I first saw the Gabrielle bottle, I knew she is going to be in one of my collection. The well-designed bottle has a thin base which made it looks really sleek and chic unlike many other fragrances that I have owned. Also, the tube straw is almost invisible in the bottle.

Composed by the in-house master perfumer, Oliver Polges, the abstract yet feminine floral scent smells clean and modern. You can detect top notes of ylang-ylang, tuberose, jasmine and orange blossom with hints of creamy sandalwood too.

My way of describing it?It’s very Chanel.

Apart from that, I am way excited over the Gabrielle series, not just the bags collection. And I am also anticipating for a Gabrielle Chanel watch now, if it ever launches it. #Justsaying

The Gabrielle perfume releases in Chanel boutiques from 19 August, and at retailers islandwide on 1 September 2017.
Psst… The early birds will receive a golden leather pouch. While stocks last.
Available in 50ml and 100ml (SGD258).
