In 2017, Chanel created a very special fragrance in the honour of Gabrielle Chanel, the founder of Chanel. From the bottle to the scent of the perfume pay tribute to the women she was before becoming Coco Chanel. In 2019, the iconic perfume is reinvented with the Gabrielle Chanel Essence. Familiar but not, this new olfactory has a more vibrant and resplendent feel. This version of Gabrielle Essence is much sweeter amplified lots of citrus and a few bunches of berries. It still the same four flowers as in the original which are tuberose, jasmine, orange blossom but in Gabrielle Essence the jasmine has a much more prominent placing. It has around 12-14 hour longevity so perfect for floral lovers who are always out and about.
