LES EXCLUSIFS DE CHANEL
The World Of Coco Chanel: The story of Chanel begins at 1912, when young Gabrielle first started her path in the fashion world by creating women's hats, and a very simple dresses, inspired by a jersey she used to wear in her famous Parisian shop at Rue Cambon.
In the 1920s, Chanel took her successful business to new heights. She launched her first perfume, Chanel No. 5, which was the first perfume in the world to feature a designer’s name. Madame Chanel describes Perfume as “the unseen, unforgettable, ultimate accessory of fashion. . . . that heralds your arrival and prolongs your departure”.
In 1925 Chanl introduced to the world the "Chanel suit", and the revolutionary "little black dress"; two of the most iconic pieces identified with the house of Chanel. On January 1971, Coco Chanel past away in her apartment at the Ritz hotel in Paris. A little more than a decade after her death, designer Karl Lagerfeld was nominated to continue the Chanel legacy up to this day.
Discover Les Exclusifs de Chanel: The Exclusive line consists of seventeen perfumes that are exclusive to the Chanel boutiques and website. The Exclusive line was firstly created by the Ernest Beaux the creator of the iconic Mademoiselle Chanel and today by the house of Chanel master perfumer Jacques Polge. The exclusive line draws inspiration from the life of Gabrielle Chanel: poetic testimonies to legendary places, materials she loved, and the symbols that always followed and the names were picked to indicate and celebrate all the significant milestones and symbols associated with the house: "31 Rue Cambon" - as the first Chanel boutique, "Jersey" - a dress she fashioned out of an old jersey on a chilly day that debuted her clothing success, "Beige" - the color she used to take refuge in because its natural, "Boy"- Arthur “Boy” Capel who Chanel had an affair with, etc...
Each perfume is hand-crafted in a traditional manner, and the formulas are created from the most pure, rare and prestige ingredients.
The collection was launched in 1922, releasing to the world the very first exclusives of the brand: No.22, Gardenia, Bois des Iles, and cuir de russie. In 2007 due to the on growing demand for niche perfumes and the growing need to actually have your own exclusive and unique signature scent, the house of Chanel added 10 more exclusives to the line created by Jacques Polge; followed by two more exclusives that were created for the House in 2015-2016 by his son the Nose Olivier Polge: "Boy" and "Misia".
Jacques Polge & Olivier Polge captured through the different steps of the creation.
On a Personal note: Chanel has always been one of my favorite elite fashion brands, and a huge source of inspiration through my journey in the fashion world of blogging. as a child who grew up in Paris Chanel was a name I knew since the early stages of my life: My mom used the Iconic Chanel Mademoiselle perfume, my grandma was carrying her bags with pride, and I used to dream about getting my own Chanel perfume.
I remember that the first perfume I owned at the age of 12 was the Chanel ALLURE for men - I got it as a gift from my grandma when she came back from a vacation in Deauville, and even today I can remember the excitement that filled my soul with joy! but hey... we're not here to bring up old memoirs... lets get back to cause of gathering: The Chanel Exclusives.
For me even though I adore the entire exclusive collection, and I can relate to the smell and story behind each and every one of them; my top choice to pick would be "Boy Chanel".
BOY CHANEL: Fresh & Aromatic:
The Perfume was created in 2016 as a tribute to Chanel's soul mate Arthur ‘Boy’ Capel.
Inspired by their love, Boy CHANEL is a vibrant, perfectly balanced scent that challenges tradition and transcends gender.
Top Notes: Grapefruit, Lavender, Lemon.
Middle Notes: Geranium, Orange Blossom, Rose.
Base Notes: Cumarin, Heliotrope, Sandalwood, Vanilla, Moss, White musk.
Olivier Polge Describes BOY CHANEL as: "an exceptional Fresh Aromatic fragrance infused with the timeless elegance of Lavender".
“My way of working on this fragrance was really not to try to make a unisex fragrance but really more to dive into men’s fragrance… and to show how well it could be worn by a woman,” said Polge, drawing a parallel to a woman putting on her boyfriend’s shirt, thereby rendering it feminine. “So it was not to try to create an in-between fragrance, but a very masculine fragrance. And — like many other things in life — gender is given by the person wearing it.”
The Entire Chanel exclusive collection is available exclusively at the Chanel boutiques and online.
