The Chanel No 5 Eau de Parfum was created by Jacques Polges in 1986 as another interpretation of the iconic original fragrance introduced by Coco Chanel and created by Ernest Beaux in 1921.
No.5’s top note soars with hesperidia followed by a floral bouquet of jasmine from Grasse and May Rose. Sandalwood and vetiver give the end note a woody touch.
Top notes include neroli, ylang-ylang, peach, bergamot and aldehydes. Middle notes include fresh jasmine, lily of the valley, iris and may rose. Base notes capture deep blend of Mysore sandalwood, vetiver, moss, patchouli and Bourbon vanilla.
Carole Bouquet became the face of the fragrance.
