Chanel Coco Noir Eau de Parfum for Fall 2012


This September: Chanel Coco Noir Eau de Parfum

“Before me, no one would have dared dress in black,” Gabrielle Chanel once said. Black, an iconic colour of Chanel, now inspires a luminous new fragrance for women: COCO NOIR. Striking top notes of Grapefruit and Bergamot accentuate the floral accord with Rose and Jasmine, while Indonesian Patchouli and Sandalwood notes add warmth to the seductive scent.

Created by Jacques Polge, master perfumer at Chanel, COCO NOIR marks a return to Oriental fragrances for the House. Recalling his journey to unveil the mystery of black through fragrance, Monsieur Polge explains, “The night vision of the ‘Orient that starts and ends in Venice’ imposed itself upon me, and that is where I wanted to go.”

Availability: September 2012 — Eau de parfum Spray is $98/1.7 oz. and $130/3.4 oz.
