“For Coco Noir, I thought of Coco and of Coco Mademoiselle too, because it’s also a part of the records. I desired to continue exploring an entire esthetic variety of CHANEL perfumery, a variety that distinguishes itself from the Florals, one this is illustrated by means of Bois-des-Iles and Cuir de Russie. I took it up with Coco. It’s what I like to call the CHANEL Coromandel way of life, what you spot and sense in her condo. The night time imaginative and prescient of the ‘Orient that starts offevolved and results in Venice’ imposed itself upon me and this is wherein I desired to go.” perfumer Jacques Polge.
In 1984, there was Coco, that sumptuous mixture of timber, resins, vegetation, spices and fruit. A treasure trove of splendours and an infinite source of discovery and sensual satisfaction. Then, in 2001, got here Coco Mademoiselle, a breath of air that lightens this cornucopia of fragrance, in which the whole lot is simplified and extended in a radiant burst of fruit and flower. And today there may be Coco Noir, a great nocturnal Baroque. Another journey within the wake of a Gabrielle who fully embraced the dazzle of black and Venice, incorporating them now not only into her creations but into her lifestyles.
