With LES EAUX DE CHANEL, there is no need to go anywhere to savor the scent of faraway places on the skin. Inspired by the favorite destinations of Gabrielle Chanel, and created by Olivier Polge, LES EAUX DE CHANEL are pleased to welcome a new destination: PARIS-RIVIERA. It’s such a coincedence because just a little over a month ago, I was in the French Riviera with CHANEL. That’s why this fragrance is extra special to me.
“PARIS-RIVIERA is a floral and luminous fragrance that reflects the joyful, sunny spirit of the Côte d’Azur in the 1920s.” Olivier Polge
The reason why Riviera is chosen as of one of the favorite destinations of Gabrielle Chanel, is because many of her joyful memories took place there. She could often be found on the Côte d’Azur during the Roaring Twenties, one day on the Duke of Westminster’s yacht in Monte Carlo. And the other day at the Hôtel de Paris in Monaco, or at the Société des Bains de Mer resort known for its legendary parties. She frequently visited Cannes, where she opened a boutique. And her vacation villa ”La Pausa” was also built in this area.
This fantasy-filled world of the Riviera inspired perfumer-creator Olivier Polge to compose a luminous and elegant fragrance. Olivier Polge noticed a remarkable lightheartedness in the pictures of Gabrielle Chanel surrounded by friends, her face upturned to the sun, and incarnated it with a fragrance of Mediterranean flowers bathed in fresh citrus.
Top notes: Orange Peel, Citrus

Last year you could have read all about the new LES EAUX DE CHANEL line, and how excited I was about it. I just love fresh, easy and light fragrances for the summer and this fragrance collection has it all. I was so surprise when PARIS-RIVIERA was announced to launch, it sounded like a summer dream in a bottle. And I have to admit, I’m hooked! It’s a warm, soft and feminine fragrance that keeps lingering on your skin the entire day. The PARIS-RIVIERA eau de toilette creates a snapshot of summer with a single spray. A promise of azure blue and sun on the skin. A one-way trip to a legendary Mediterranean coast.
