Five Drops of Legacy: Chanel N°5 L’EAU

In the realm of dreams and inspiration, who would have anticipated that a simple phrase from an icon like Marilyn Monroe could transform, for the first time since 1921, the iconic bottle of Chanel N°5?

The bottle, from its inception, featured a design that emphasized the liquid it contained. According to some rumors, it was inspired by the whiskey flasks owned by Boy Capel, Coco Chanel’s great love.

Chanel has unveiled a limited edition of its legendary perfume. The version of N°5 L’EAU was born in 2016, adding to the iconic and enchanting fragrance a floral freshness and an unprecedented spirit. It is an active source of energy, light and transparent yet with enough gravity to anchor and linger in the moment. A radiant and impulsive drop where citrus notes dazzle and rise to the sky, carried by aldehydes. Then, a floral swirl of jasmine, rose, and ylang-ylang, and finally, the dynamism of vetiver and cedar.

This new version stands out for its exclusive drop-shaped bottle, inspired by a famous confession of Marilyn Monroe. In the 1950s, she revealed that at bedtime, a few drops of Chanel N°5 accompanied her in her nocturnal intimacy.

Each drop of Chanel N°5 L’EAU carries a profound meaning:

– Drop of Love: Invites to experience and express love in its purest and most authentic forms, evoking the deep emotional bond that many feel towards Chanel N°5 L’EAU.

– Drop of Bravery: Symbolizes the courage needed to face challenges and embrace authenticity, reflecting Chanel’s boldness to innovate and reinvent a classic like N°5 with its modern design.

– Drop of Desire: Captures the longing and passion Chanel N°5 L’EAU arouses, celebrating desire as an intrinsic motivating force in the seductive and timeless fragrance of the brand.

– Drop of Joy: Suggests the joy and pleasure found in small luxuries and everyday moments, presenting Chanel N°5 L’EAU as a source of happiness and luminosity.

– Drop of Mystery: Essential to the allure of Chanel N°5 L’EAU, captures the depth and complexity of a fragrance that goes beyond the visible, much like Marilyn Monroe expressed with her iconic statement.

These phrases not only enrich the olfactory experience of the perfume but also deepen the emotional connection and legendary history of Chanel N°5 L’EAU.

The ergonomic design of the “N°5 L’EAU Drop” bottle is conceived to fit perfectly in the hand and represent a drop of the perfume’s essence itself. This fluid and elegant shape contrasts with the classic square bottle of Chanel N°5, maintaining the essence of luxury and simplicity that characterize the brand.

This new presentation not only celebrates the historical connection of the perfume with Marilyn Monroe but also reflects the modern evolution of the classic Chanel N°5 L’EAU, making it accessible and appealing to new generations.

Available from June 14 at all official points of sales in Swizerland, this launch promises to write a new chapter in the legendary history of Chanel N°5.
