About Chanel® perfumes

In 1921, the legendary couturier Gabrielle 'Coco' Chanel® disrupted the fragrance market by launching her debut, No5. Perfumer Ernest Beaux presented Mademoiselle Chanel® with a portfolio of samples from which the fifth proposal stole her heart. Thus, No5 was born, becoming the apotheosis of perfumery worldwide.


The bold and abstract construction of Chanel® No5 set it apart from its floral counterparts of the time, with its enchanting notes of jasmine, lilac, and rose. This revolutionary scent boasted a generous use of aldehydes, renowned for their champagne-like sparkle that tantalizes the senses. It was a game-changer, a fragrance like no other.


Legend has it that Ernest Beaux, or perhaps his lab assistant, accidentally (or intentionally) added an 'overdose' of aldehydes to the bottle. Though we may never be able to unravel the truth, one thing is sure—Chanel® succumbed to its seductive charm. And thus, the fragrance history was created, forever etching the name Chanel® No5 into the annals of time.


Chanel®, the epitome of timeless elegance and sophistication, has been enchanting fragrance enthusiasts with its exquisite perfumes for decades. In this blog, we embark on a fragrant journey to explore the top 10 Chanel® perfumes that have captivated hearts and there best alternatives.
