BAZAAR Fragrance Awards 2017: Best Fashion Fragrance

Chanel N°5 L’Eau EDP, RM595 (100ml)

Notes: The latest interpretation of the iconic 1926 aldehyde scent, Chanel N°5 L’Eau exudes the youth and charm of its face, Lily-Rose Depp. This enigmatic spirit, best played out with citrusy lemon, mandarin, and oranges, deepens with the classic bouquet of May rose, oxygenated jasmine, ylang ylang, and aldehydes—which make the DNA of every Chanel N°5. The dry yet vibrant qualities of cedar break the shackles of the sandalwood and vetiver, releasing a free-spirited side to those dressier notes.

Did You Know? This fragrance took Olivier Polge and team 386 days to complete as the key ingredients have different harvesting periods. Citruses were picked at their height in January, orange flowers in March, and centifolia roses in May.

BAZAAR’s Tip: As Coco Chanel once said, perfumes are meant to tease and invite, so always spritz it where you’d like to be kissed.
