Gabrielle, the new Chanel tribute feminine fragrance
In this year 2017, the house of Chanel has just announced the release of a brand new fragrance named Gabrielle. You will understand, through him, it is a question of paying tribute to the creator of the sign. In fact, this fragrance is rather inspired by Gabrielle Chanel during her youthful years, even before she was known by the nickname Coco. With this new juice, Chanel “opens a new chapter in its history. New name. New bottle. New perfume. New territory of expression and new source of inspiration ”. Gabrielle is a brand new juice that is already promising to make a big splash in the world of women’s perfumery.
Gabrielle’s contemporary floral composition
Gabrielle is advertised as a “floral and abstract fragrance”. Composed by the official perfumer of the house of Chanel, Olivier Polge, it is both solar and airy. It is like a sort of luminous and imaginary floral aura, as if straight out of the earth in the heart of one of the most beautiful gardens in Grasse. It opens with a fresh and fruity scent of mandarin associated with the bitterness of grapefruit. The currant, for its part, brings here a more tonic and tangy facet. Then, Gabrielle’s heart is loaded with flowers. It brings together a warm and creamy touch of tuberose, an exotic breath of ylang-ylang, a rich and opulent scent of jasmine and a more solar and Mediterranean scent of orange blossom. Finally, Gabrielle ends with a warm, animal and creamy duo of sandalwood and musk.
The reinterpretation of the Chanel bottle for Gabrielle
On the bottle side, Gabrielle is contained in a brand new bottle. The design of this new container required five years of research. Its existence is due to the creativity of designer Sylvie Legastelois, creator of official bottles for the house of Chanel. This time, she chose to reinterpret the brand’s standard bottle, the one featuring the iconic Chanel N ° 5. Square in shape, it now has a soft golden hue conveying a tender and sunny light. This is in perfect harmony with Gabrielle’s solar character. Its fine glass is topped by a matte stopper actually inspired by a box given to Chanel by the Duke of Westminster. Everything is available in two formats, 50 or 100 ml.

Finally, note that Gabrielle will be embodied on the screen by the attractive actress Kristen Stewart. Face of Chanel for several years, the American actress has been immortalized by director Ringan Ledwidge. The photos of the advertising campaign, meanwhile, are signed by Karim Sadli. The scene will take place in the heart of Aubazine Abbey, in Corrèze, a place where Coco Chanel would have spent part of her childhood.

The first Parisian boutique of the designer Gabrielle Chanel opened its doors in 1910. From then on, her creations were a huge success. Several boutiques followed and this is how Coco Chanel began to develop her styling activity. Coco Chanel then took it into her head to transform the women of her time.
