In 2017, Chanel created a fragrance in her honor, a reflection of her extraordinary, determined and passionate spirit: Gabrielle Chanel. From the scent to the bottle—both firsts in the history of Chanel —and the choice of name, it pays tribute to the woman she was before Coco Chanel. In 2019, Gabrielle Chanel Eau de Parfum is reinvented with Gabrielle Chanel Essence.
Familiar but unlike no other, this new olfactory variation shows a more vibrant and opulent side. Inspired by the very essence of Gabrielle’s radiance, the fragrance shines with intensity, inviting all women reveal their true selves, to follow their instincts by expressing their freedom and speaking their mind. The voluptuous scent works its magic to reveal each individual identity. The fragrance is composed of a heart of four white flowers: tuberose, ylang-ylang, jasmine, and orange blossom.
It echoes the life and personality of Gabrielle Chanel, a pioneering woman who went against the diktats of society to choose her own personal and professional destiny. “I decided who I wanted to be, and that is who I am,” she said, reaffirming that nothing was more important to her than her freedom. Choosing who she wanted to be, and becoming that person.
