Reminiscent of the fresh sea breeze and coastal air, Paris-Biarritz immediately transports you away from the hustle and bustle of city life with an energising burst of grapefruit and mandarin to uplift the spirit, only to be sweetened by lily of the valley with a fresh aqueous accompaniment. Vetiver, paired with white musk, anchors the light and airy scent, resulting in a dazzling celebration of comfort and elegance.
Feel your senses come alive as soon as the mist settles on your skin, sparking a vivid imagery of a refreshing dip in the sea on a sunny day—exactly what fragrance creator Olivier Polge intended. “Paris-Biarritz is the most aquatic fragrance in the Les Eaux de Chanel collection,” he says. “I wanted to create a sensation on the skin as if each ingredient were soaked with water.” Mission accomplished.
SCENTS OF SENTIMENT
Rich in significance, the Les Eaux de Chanel collection is inspired by three places close to Gabrielle Chanel’s heart. Seaside town Biarritz became home to her boutique villa in 1915, which attracted loyal guests that included Queen Victoria Eugenie of Spain.
