Chanel Eau Premier


Perfect rejuvenation of a classic beauty.

A sexy, alluring contemporary version. 

Chanel No. 5 Eau Première is “a fresher, rounder, more delicate version intended to be used every day”, and “tweaks the original’s top notes just a bit, adding ylang-ylang from the Comoro Islands and jasmine sourced from Chanel-owned fields in Grasse”

The classical aldehydic top of No 5 has been made softer—think cashmere versus heavy satin

Its resemblance to the original No. 5 is immediately apparent; while the aldehydic powderiness been toned down significantly and the base has lost its opaque quality, it still retains a velvety texture. It is more lighthearted and effervescent than its predecessor, and yet, nothing compromises its depth and complexity. 

With both the top and the base becoming more transparent, the floral accord shines. The clarity of the backdrop throws into relief the beautiful richness of classical Chanel No 5 florals—rose, jasmine, ylang-ylang and iris. 

Eau Premiere is  warm – the warmth of a blanket or a cashmere sweater; sparkly & transparent – the lucency of an amber.

I love this, I declare my devotion, no excuses needed, I am so into it that i regret for not stocking up while i was in duty free; the high street price for the 150 ml is £95, and the duty free price is about £55! I got mine by redeeming my boots advantage points.
