PHOTO COURTESY OF CHANEL
In 2018, Chanel introduced its Les Eaux de Chanel collection, an olfactory world inspired by Mademoiselle’s favourite places, inviting one to escape to a fantasy elsewhere. True to this spirit, its fifth and latest journey, Paris-Édimbourg, will transport you to the grand and mysterious Scottish countryside, where Gabrielle Chanel was revitalised by its endless expanses of green.
With a juice as green as the landscape, the new creation, steeped in the odours of the terrain, is the earthiest, most androgynous and woodiest of the range. A woody aromatic, the EDT opens with lively and distinctive notes of juniper berry and cypress with a hint of lavender, accompanied by comforting cedar and peaty vetiver for slightly smoky accents. Its dry down reveals a trail of warm vanilla and musk for a scent that is described to be as comfortable as a tweed jacket borrowed from the men’s wardrobe.
Perfect for any adventure, the fragrance is housed in a rounded bottle with a black thermoset cap engraved with a double C, similar to the others in the line, and is reminiscent of the flasks of alcohol people used to carry in their waistcoat when travelling.
Ready to be whisked away for a stroll through the countryside? Priced at SGD220 for 125 ml, the Les Eaux de Chanel Paris-Édimbourg EDT is now available to shop via Chanel Beauty’s home delivery service, and from 4 June 2021 at the Chanel’s Fragrance & Beauty Counter at Takashimaya Department Store.
