- Chanel No 5 Eau De Parfum Spray 100ml (3.4 Oz) EDP Perfume
N°5, the very essence of femininity. An aldehyde floral bouquet housed in an iconic bottle with a minimalist design. A timeless, legendary fragrance.
The eau de parfum draws inspiration from the perfume with which it shares its floral aldehyde signature. This floral bouquet composed around May Rose and Jasmine features bright citrus top notes. Aldehydes create a unique presence, and the smooth touch of Vanilla is an incredibly sensual trail.
In 1921, Gabrielle Chanel asked Ernest Beaux to create “a woman’s perfume with a woman’s scent”, rare and powerful. The nose presented her with a visionary composition that made unprecedented use of aldehydes. Mademoiselle chose the fifth sample of the fragrance and decided to name it simply N°5. For this new fragrance, she opted for a bottle with a revolutionary design, adorned with a white label and topped with a faceted cabochon. In 1986, Jacques Polge, the CHANEL nose since 1978, reinterpreted his predecessor’s composition to create a fuller version of N°5: the eau de parfum.

Eau de Toilette or Eau de Parfum? While Eau de Toilette contains 5-9% of perfume oil, Eau de Parfum usually contains 8-14%. Eau de Parfums, therefore, last longer and smell more intense. Natural or synthetic fragrances? Perfumes with natural ingredients often smell different in batches based on the source of the ingredients, while artificial ingredients usually have consistency in their smell and last longer. Notes and different smell after application? Perfumes are often designed with top, middle, and base notes and smell different based on the time after application. For example, some top-note citrus scents smell stronger immediately upon application, while a lavender middle note may be sensed after some time from the application as the top note evaporates.
Top notes: Aldehydes, Ylang-Ylang, Neroli, Bergamot, and Peach; middle notes are iris, Jasmine, Rose, and Lily-of-the-Valley; base notes: Sandalwood, Vanilla, Oakmoss, Vetiver, and Patchouli.
