Smaller, perfectly travel-sized and ideal for occasion’s on-the-go, the new bottle format of the emblematic Chanel fragrance fits easily into any handbag or clutch. Two scents have been chosen for the new 35 ml bottle that is shaped in the original mythical design of Chanel’s N°5 fragrance: the N°5 Eau de Partum and the N°5 Eau Première.

The elixirs themselves remain unchanged. N°5 Eau de Parfum opens on notes of May rose and jasmine, associated with Hesperides accords and notes of vanilla.

The N°5 Eau Première combines notes of ylang-ylang from the Comoro Islands with May rose and jasmine, with an added dose of aldehydes, vanilla and musk accords.

The new format will be available as of October 16 in Chanel boutiques and other select retailers.
