When French powerhouse Chanel launches not one, but three new unisex fragrances, it deserves our undivided attention. When we think of Chanel scents the first thing that comes to mind are blossoming floral creations that exude sensual femininity but Chanel’s in-house perfumer Olivier Polge has shaken things up with light and citrusy Eau de toilettes called Les Eaux de Chanel that will please even the most discerning tastes of both men and women. Expect woody notes with zesty citrus touches that evolve into musty patchouli scents, making for a sensational olfactory experience. “This is a new sort of collection of perfumes, we call them Les Eaux because they’re fresh, fluid, sparkling,” says the perfumer who has been at the fragrance helm since 2015. “My source of inspiration came from Eau de cologne, those combinations of fresh citrus oils.” The scents, called Venice, Biarritz, Deauville were all inspired and named after destinations close to Coco Chanel’s heart and vision. The latter being a beach town where she opened her first boutique back in 1913. “The three cities are really important in the history of Chanel. They became a part of our identity and source of inspiration,” he adds.
Each scent is housed in a minimalist yet effortlessly chic bottle inspired by a flask just waiting to be put on your dressing table.
