During a private reception at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, CHANEL revealed its new lustrous and cosmic fragrance Gabrielle Chanel. Dedicated to the house’s founder, the new fragrance, accented with ylang-ylang, orange blossom, jasmine and Grasse tuberose, playfully danced through the air. Whilst the faceted mobile mirrors that lined the walls reflected images that multiplied, appeared and disappeared fluidly as guests moved through the space. Then tastefully sprinkled with Mademoiselle Chanel’s favorite quotes, guests went home at dawn bathed from head to toe in the essence and elegance of the iconic fashion designer we all know today as Coco Chanel.
