The new edition of the original Gabrielle Chanel fragrance has launched. This intense reinterpretation is a luminous feminine floral perfume.

Inspired by the free and passionate woman who became Coco Chanel, GABRIELLE CHANEL ESSENCE is a more voluptuous, intensely feminine interpretation of the luminous floral fragrance. The striking square glass bottle is reimagined with bolder golden accents on the cap and label.

"Composed by In-House Perfumer Creator Olivier Polge, this deep and enveloping scent evokes the true essence of Gabrielle Chanel. The fragrance is an imaginary flower, faceted with Jasmine, Ylang-Ylang, Orange Blossom and the most captivating flower of all, Grasse Tuberose. Solar and voluptuous, the scent of a radiant woman."

In the second iteration of Chanel Gabrielle Chanel Eau de Parfum, tuberose shines as the star note due to a secret extraction process that adds freshness, elevating it above the scent's other white florals of jasmine, ylang-ylang, and orange blossom. Creating long-lasting "sparkling" notes out of those lighter scents, which usually evaporated first, is the mark of a modern fragrance, says Chanel's in-house perfumer Olivier Polge.
