What it is: A floral-aldehydic fragrance described by Gabrielle Chanel as a bouquet of abstract flowers, whose formula requires no less than 80 ingredients.
Fragrance story: At first, the scent unfolds with a stunning surge of ylang-ylang and neroli—bitter orange tree blossom. Then, a perfect harmony of voluptuous May rose and sensuous jasmine from Grasse emerges, followed by a vibrant woody base of sandalwood, bourbon vetiver and vanilla. An ever-changing fragrance with no single dominant note, N°5 boasts the incredible power of being able to be interpreted differently based on the wearer, thus revealing each womans uniqueness.
