Gabrielle Chanel was convinced of the magical power of the comet, omnipresent in her universe, and made this star one of her symbols of eternal chance, and the emblem of her unfailing optimism.

Brimming with emotions and sensations, fragrance is a language. It can at times, more so than words, reveal a facet of the person who wears it, uncovering a fragment of their story, and sharing a precious secret in a singular fragrance trail.

This is the spirit that symbolises the LES EXCLUSIFS DE CHANEL collection, an exceptional olfactory line and a luxurious expression of perfumery that resembles no other, composed of noble and frequently tailor-made materials. True secrets of the skin, each of these Eaux de Parfum reveals one of Gabrielle Chanel’s character traits, writing a page from her life, sketching the outlines of one of her designs, or illustrating a symbol that guided her steps.

Recounting the woman and the designer, telling her own story as much as that of the House, these fragrances belong to a line of style and time specific to CHANEL.

Beyond fashions, with neither age nor gender, they adhere to no creative pace, and listen only to the perfumer’s instinct, his sole intuition: «Fragrance at CHANEL is a state of mind. The expression of a style, an idea that go beyond the aesthetics of a raw material),, confides CHANEL In-House Perfumer Creator Olivier Polge. Part mystery and elegance, part perfection and daring, LES EXCLUSIFS DE CHANEL welcome a 19″ olfactory vision: COMETE.

“I wanted to cover women in constellations. Stars! L.) see these comets, where the head glitters on a shoulder, and the sparkling tail slips behind the shoulders to fall back down in a shower of stars on the chest…”
Gabrielle Chanel

Mademoiselle Chanel knew how to recognize a powerful and mysterious aesthetic power in certain forms. The Star and Comet were always her preferred sources of inspiration, enhancing women’s beauty with their celestial dust. For their incomparable sparkle, Gabrielle Chanel chose the Comet and Star as essential themes of her first high jewelry collection, presented in Paris in 1932. It was only natural that she designed jewelry in its shape, such as the Comete necklace, that threads around the neck, resting freely against the skin.

Gabrielle Chanel was convinced of the magical power of the comet, omnipresent in her universe, and made this star one of her symbols of eternal chance, and the emblem of her unfailing optimism. Like a trace of light in the night, this singular comet now traces an olfactory trail in its image: rare and unforgettable.
“At the beginning of each creation, you need an inspiring element, and for COMETE, the starting point was the idea of stardust,” explains Olivier Polge. “The comet is a strong symbol for CHANEL, and I’m thinking in particular of the Comete necklace from the 1932 high jewelry collection, which is worn open, laying right on the skin, and reminds me of the enveloping trail of a skin fragrance.”

Intensely floral and luminous, COMETE explores a new olfactory identity in the LES EXCLUSIFS DE CHANEL collection. Rich and powdery, sophisticated and complex, it is a universe in itself.
Just like this traveling star, the Eau de Parfum is suffused with a fresh and delicate cherry blossom accord. A trace of luminosity and purity transforms into an aura set with heliotrope notes blending into a cloud of iris extract and a musk accord. This sensual fragrance, which envelops the skin with elusive magnetism, celebrates its singular character.
COMETE is a fragrance trail of stardust and of a celestial jewel which, in a reflection of Gabrielle Chanel, chooses its own trajectory, and never deviates from its path. It is an aura of light, unfurling the power of optimism, for those who are convinced that the planets will align with their lucky star.
