This year the house of Chanel is celebrating Coco before Chanel, with a nod to her true first name, Gabrielle.
As the house's first major fragrance launch in fifteen years, Gabrielle eau de parfum pays homage to the essence of Coco Chanel's rebellious spirit.
It is fitting that Kristen Stewart, who has worked with the Chanel since 2013, is the face of the bold and passionately feminine modern scent, set to be released on August 31.
The new scent was created by Olivier Polge and the Chanel Fragrance Creation and Development Laboratory. Olivier is a perfume-legacy, with his father Jacques the house's previous nose and creator of Chanel Chance, which launched in 2002.
He describes Gabrielle eau de parfum as "abstract floral", designed to reflect four flowers (one for each corner of the classic Chanel bottle). At it's core is jasmine, tuberose from grasse, ylang ylang and orange blossom.
