Happy Birthday Coco Chanel & Launch of Chanel No 19 Perfume

Pin It

Today is Coco Chanel’s birthday! In 1970 Chanel launched her perfume Number 19, named after her birthday. The Chanel no 19 was the last perfume created by Gabrielle Coco Chanel herself. Today Chanel launches an updated version of #19 for Coco’s Birthday!

Jacques Polge Chanel’s Master Perfumer says about the Chanel no 19:

We’ve found some new musks that are very interesting, and we are working a lot at the moment on iris, which is a very important ingredient in No.19 Poudré. We have our plantations in Grasse, with rose and jasmine, and we’re trying to find new qualities in those. But we’re also trying to reproduce what was done 40 years ago, that nobody does anymore”

The new Chanel no 19 Poudre’ 1.7 oz $80 or 3.4oz $115 can be found exclusively at Saks Fifth Avenue Biltmore Fashion Park and saksfifthavenue.com launching today August 19!
