In true innovative genius, Gabrielle Chanel revolutionized the world of fashion, while contributing to the liberation of morals. As an extraordinary designer, she democratized the color black, she wore short hair and offered an ultra feminine wardrobe. The Chanel brand is the symbol of French luxury all over the world. Among his greatest olfactory successes we note the legendary N ° 5, Coco, Coco Mademoiselle, Chance, Egoiste, Antaeus, Cristalle or more recently Gabrielle Chanel. N ° 19 was created in 1971 and offered a new winning number for the brand.
N ° 19 Eau de Perfume, Gabrielle Chanel’s latest fragrance
Green and powdery tones at the heart of N ° 19 Chanel
When Gabrielle Chanel brought up the idea of a new perfume with character, she encountered the reluctance of the brand as well as those of perfumer Henri Robert. Indeed, the latter thinks that another “scent number” will disrupt the success of “N ° 5”. Mademoiselle will then affirm “To be irreplaceable, you have to be different…”. Bold and endowed with a strong character, the N ° 19 fragrance sticks to Gabrielle Chanel’s skin. The number 19 is a tribute to Mademoiselle whose day of birth is.
Gabrielle Chanel died on January 10, 1971, barely a few weeks after the launch of N ° 19, thus giving N ° 19 a very special symbol. The composition begins with a luminous association, that of galbanum from Iran and Neroli flower from Grasse. Its heart combines the May rose and the Florence iris. The base combines iris with musks and sandalwood.
N ° 19 Eau de Toilette, the reflection of an extraordinary personality
The powdery scents of iris subjugate Eau de Toilette N ° 19
After the success of the Eau de Perfume, the house of Chanel decided to continue its tribute to Mademoiselle with Eau de Toilette N ° 19 . The contrasting accord between green notes and powdery iris notes will signify the success of Eau de Toilette N ° 19.
Because the fragrance was released a few days before Coco Chanel’s death, N ° 19 will forever remain her last extravagance, and more than anything, the reflection of her extraordinary personality. N ° 19, will then be the other great number of the Chanel brand, a perfume which pays homage to her date of birth, namely August 19, 1883. The composition takes off on green notes such as galbanum and hyacinth, associated with neroli and bergamot. Then, the heart combines iris, jasmine, rose and lily of the valley. Finally, the base harmoniously blends vanilla, vetiver, leather and white musks.

In 2011, Jacques Polge, then perfumer of the house of Chanel decided to revisit the fragrance tribute to Gabrielle Chanel by proposing N ° 19 Poudré . With Gabrielle Chanel, Jacques Polge shares a taste for poetry and art and affirms “A painting, like a perfume, is a language.
A poem in colors and shapes for the first, a poem in scents for the second ”… Jacques Polge has succeeded in making his mark on the world of perfumery by offering a real facelift to Chanel olfactory creations, while respecting the elegance of Miss. Today, his own son, Olivier Polge, succeeded him as the brand’s official perfumer. N ° 19 Poudré is defined as a powdery-musky floral. The composition begins with a combination of neroli and mandarin. Its heart is as feminine as it is powdery and combines jasmine and iris Pallida. The base notes are sensual and combine white musks, vetiver and tonka bean.
Autre numéro, autre star ! Avec le N°19, la maison Chanel offre un grand succès. Non seulement c’est un parfum de caractère, mais c’est également le dernier parfum sorti quelques jours avant le décès de Gabrielle Chanel. Avec son association verte et poudrée, le N°19 présente un aspect espiègle, impétueux, audacieux à l’image de Mademoiselle. Le flacon reprend les traits du mythique N°5.
