Today on Coco Chanel’s birthday, Chanel is launching No 19 Poudré, a new variation on the classical Chanel No 19. The composition was orchestrated by Chanel in-house perfumers Jacques Polges and Christopher Sheldrake. It includes notes of mandarin, neroli, iris, jasmine, galbanum, vetiver, white musk and tonka bean. According to the press release, “the new interpretation of the scent is creative and daring, boldly combining crisp green notes with powdery iris. The scent ends sublimely, trailing off to a delicate finish, and in keeping with the original composition, N°19 Poudré still has that same light, velvety, floating feeling.” Available exclusively at Saks Fifth Avenue and Chanel.com starting today.
