Chanel No. 19

Chanel No. 19

Women's 1.7 oz EDT Spray (Unboxed). Henri Robert created Chanel No. 19 perfume especially for Coco Chanel reflecting the qualities attributed to her by an admirer: witty outspoken supremely confident and intensely feminine. The perfume was released to the world in 1971 just before her death. The number 19 celebrates Coco's birthday on the 19th of August. (She was clearly a Leo!). Since its creation Chanel No. 19 perfume has had a passionately loyal following. Wearers shouldn't be surprised if people ask them to reveal the name of their fragrance...Coco Chanel was once accosted by an American stranger who wanted to know the same thing. A wonderful tribute she remarked for a woman of her age (87!) and for Chanel No. 19 perfume. The scent begins with audacious floral and green notes (Neroli Galbanum) followed by a meeting of May Roses and Irises from Florence. The finale: a chime of Chypre with a subtle woody Vetiver note.

Chanel No. 19 Poudre

Chanel No. 19 Poudre

Women's 1.7 oz EDP Spray. Iris is the central ingredient of the fragrance along with several new interesting musks found by the perfumer. Talking about iris the perfumer pointed out it is a very demanding ingredient. First of all it's hard to source because anything can affect the final quality of the oil including climate and soil. Secondly processing of iris is very time and labor-consuming process which lasts a couple of years. However Chanel never made a single compromise about the quality of her (their) perfumes. The new No.19 Poudré (2011) unites the latest technology advances (musks) and the best that can be achieved in a good old artisanal way. The nose behind this fragrance is Jacques Polge.
