Indefinable and eternally enigmatic, N°5 is not a fragrance. It is an olfactory heritage: a certain idea of femininity, a masterpiece of chic, passed on from generation to generation. In 1924, only three years after the creation of the Parfum, Ernest Beaux interpreted it as an Eau de Toilette. In 1986, Jacques Polge created the Eau de Parfum. Steadfastly 5 and totally new. Twenty-two years later, he dared to breathe new life into the formula with Eau Première.
Now, in 2016, it is perfumer Olivier Polge’s turn to capture the essence of his time with the creation of N°5 L’EAU – The New N°5.
Simple and Sophisticated
Fresh and Audacious
Mysterious and Iconic
From the very first moment, N°5 L’EAU declared its lightheartedness and transparency. Undoubtedly less abstract than its forebears, the composition radiates citrus like sun-drenched honey. Hints of lemon, mandarin and orange are revealed on the skin and soar skyward with the aldehydes selected by Olivier Polge.
Similarly, rustles of flowers can be heard with sounds as the whisper of trembling tulle. Jasmine oxygenated with rose melds alongside with a new fraction of ylang ylang being more modern than ever. With that, you dive into a bouquet with palatable dizziness that gives off the impression of contact with each petal, its velvety touch, fleshiness, delicate lace and its changing shape.
An unprecedented sense of liveliness can be felt behind this floral whirlwind. It is the echo of vetiver and cedar, accompanied by soft and cottony musk notes. Never has N°5 been so natural. Never has it been so fresh.
N°5 L’EAU is the N°5 of today. A composition under the banner of modernity, with freshness as its leitmotif. L’EAU, for water is essential. L’EAU, in praise of simplicity. L’EAU, the obvious choice.
