Chanel No. 5 by Chanel is an “Eau de Parfum“ for women belonging to the floral Aldehyde family. This is the world's best-selling fragrance, one of the most sought-after, denoting exclusivity and luxury, an object of desire for many, and an irreplaceable classic for others. This is perhaps the most prestigious and coveted women's perfume in the world, and a classic icon of the Chanel brand.
This fragrance was created in 1921 by the perfumer Ernest Beaux, and at the express request of Gabrielle Chanel. She wanted a feminine fragrance “smelling like a woman“, and with these same words she demanded it. We can say that he did it to the best of his ability. Nº5 is the first perfume of the exclusive firm Chanel, with which it managed to launch itself to stardom and to boost its empire in perfumery by leaps and bounds. A feminine, elegant, glamorous, sexy scent.... There are not enough adjectives to describe it, we can only say that it is a once in a lifetime experience.
Its olfactory pyramid is a real powdered floral bouquet. It was the first perfume to use the aldehyde technique. Soft, ultra-feminine and delicate floral aromas, combined with a soft and discreet touch of vanilla, patchouli and musk, give it a seductive and elegantly sensual touch. Unique and revolutionary features, which almost a century later, remain intact.
ELITIST FRAGRANCE. Chanel, was aware that exclusivity is often a great advertising weapon, and at its launch, this was a fragrance that very few could access, which produced a greater effect of desire towards her. Years later, the miniature edition was launched, more affordable than its original size.
Nº5. The name of this perfume is due to the fact that the perfumer presented several samples of the perfume to Gabrielle, and the one chosen was No. 5. In honor of this, the designer decided to keep this simple name for the great creation.
EXHIBITION OBJECT. This fragrance has been the first perfume to which an exhibition has been dedicated, so many professionals in the sector have come to affirm that we are dealing with an object of cultural interest. This took place in Palais de Tokyo, where he was honoured for several weeks.

To prolong the scent longer, apply your fragrance to your wrists and behind the earlobe. These areas pulse having a temperature above the rest of the body, and this will help the fragrance to evaporate slower. Avoid spraying perfume onto your clothes as it can stain, damage and alter certain fabrics. To prolong the scent of the fragrance, we recommend using products from the same range as shower gel, body lotions or deodorants.
Protect your fragrance from direct sunlight and heat, otherwise it could alter the composition of the fragrance and escape.
