French fashion house is adding another fragrance for women to their repertoire “Coco Noir”, in honor of Chanel’s founder Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel. The new fragrance was developed by Jacques Polge, master perfumer at Chanel.
“For Coco Noir, I thought of Coco and of Coco Mademoiselle too, because it’s also part of the history. I wanted to continue exploring an entire esthetic range of CHANEL perfumery, a range that distinguishes itself from the Florals, one that is illustrated by Bois-des-Iles and Cuir de Russie. I took it up with Coco. It’s what I like to call the CHANEL Coromandel culture, what you see and feel in her apartment. The night vision of the ‘Orient that starts and ends in Venice’ imposed itself upon me and that is where I wanted to go.” – Jacques Polge
Fragrance Notes: grapefruit and Calabrian bergamot, a heart of rose absolute, rose essence, jasmine absolute, narcissus and rose geranium leaf, and a drydown of Brazilian tonka bean, Venezuelan tonka bean, Indonesian patchouli, New Caledonian sandalwood, bourbon vanilla and white musk frankincense. Chanel Coco Noir will be available as follows: 1.7 oz. $98.00, 3.4 oz. $130.00 at select department and specialty stores and on CHANEL.com August 17, 2012 and wider release in September 2012. Until then here’s the first teaser.
