Introducing the NEW CHANEL COCO NOIR. “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 CHANEL Master Perfumer Jacques Polge, COCO NOIR marks a return to Oriental fragrances for the House. Recalling his journey to unveil the mystery of black through fragrance, 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.”

New Fragrance: Introducing CHANCE EAU TENDRE Eau de Toilette by CHANEL.

A new facet of CHANCE is born — the third generation of the CHANCE Fragrance family. CHANEL Master Perfumer Jacques Polge has created a new fragrance constellation that is a whirlwind of tender and vibrant notes. This incarnation of the decidedly youthful scent reveals itself to be both delicate and airy, with an intoxicatingly light, fruity trail. An unexpected mingling of grapefruit and quince meets the crispness of fresh green notes, while a trace of Jasmine Absolute lingers in the air. Gently warmed by a sheer veil of White Musk, CHANCE EAU TENDRE Eau de Toilette is at once innocent and seductive, for those who dare to dream anew.

CHANEL CHANCE EAU TENDRE Eau de Toilette: $65.00 for 1.7 oz., $90.00 for 3.4oz.
