Chanel N°, one of the world’s best selling perfumes received a brand extension in 2007, called Chanel N°5 Eau Premiere. This contemporary representation of the classic aroma that defined the aspiration of many generations belongs to the same olfactory group as its predecessor, floral aldehyde and the person in charge with the process of development was the Chanel house perfumer, Jacques Polge.
The ingredients of the original composition remained untouched however this new fragrance represents the softer and fresher version of Chanel N°5, which turns it into an ideal choice for a day to day use, being in the same time the unpretentious side of a true classic which is not appropriate for any occasion.
Another thing in common with the original is the Australian actress Nicole Kidman, who was chosen to front the perfume, a decision based mainly of her previous work as Chanel N°5 ambassador. On the olfactory department, Chanel N°5 Eau Premiere opens on a mix of ylang-ylang coming from the Comoro Islands, aldehydes and neroli. Then, as the composition passes the 15 minutes barrier, the heart is unveiled in a blend of Rose and jasmine from the very own field of Chanel in Grasse. The closing part belongs to an exquisite mix: vetiver from Reunion, vanilla and sandalwood are featured in the dry down.
The bottle that holds Chanel N°5 Eau Premiere retains the classic line of Chanel flasks, however with a slimmer profile and rounded edges. Overall, Chanel N°5 Eau Premiere will please the younger generation of women, who are not feeling represented by Chanel N°5 and are looking for a contemporary classic.
