I was meant to publish this post a few weeks back and realised it was still in draft, so here goes!

Chanel has launched yet another fragrance from the prestigious collection Les Exclusifs de Chanel.  The inspiration for this creation lies in the first collection of fine jewelry of this house that was presented in 1932.

The composition is powdery-floral with a focus on jasmine. It opens with fresh citrusy flavors that include aldehydes, bergamot and neroli. The heart is a heady floral, composed of jasmine, rose, ylang-ylang, lilac and carnation. The base is sweet, woody and resinous with notes of vetiver, orris, sandalwood, opoponax, incense, vanilla, coumarin, ambrette, musk and iralia molecule which possesses the character of iris and violet.

Chanel 1932 marks the year Coco Chanel began designing luxury jewelry.  The perfume was designed by Jacques Polge to commemorate and celebrate this collection.

I received a card in the mail to come to the Chanel Beaute Boutique to see, smell and experience the new fragrance 1932.  I did not know what to expect as Chanel already have a large amount of unique scents to it's name and yet again managed to release another classy and luxurious fragrance.  After my 1932 experience which involved the sampling and story behind the making I walked away with a lovely miniature sample of the fragrance.
