Composition of the fragrance
The fragrance opens with a vibrant burst of sophisticated combination of grapefruit, bergamot and Venezuelan tonka beans that spark the curiosity right from the start. This unconventional fusion of citrus and vanilla-like sweet tones is just a prelude to a generous floral heart. The sensuality of May rose and the unique note of geranium leaves are complemented with a magnetic trail of jasmine and daffodil. The base is centred around balsamic frankincense, soft musk, vanilla and sandalwood accords, and it is underlined by warm and earthy Indonesian patchouli.
Story of the fragrance
Chanel Coco Noir perfume was not inspired solely by its perfume predecessors – Chanel Coco and Chanel Coco Mademoiselle. But it was also created to evoke the grand romantic city of Venice and Venetian nights, baroque motifs and the thrill of travelling.

About the brand Chanel
The founder of Chanel, dubbed the Queen of Fashion, Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel, was born in 1883 in Saumur, a small town in the west of France. However, once she was in Paris, she conquered the fashion world with her progressive costume design with legs and a skirt.
Coco Chanel began as a bar singer, where she got her nickname. As early as 1912, she opened her first fashion salon, and was soon a recognised designer. By the mid-20th-century, she was setting the trends in haute couture and Chanel was worn by personalities such as Jacqueline Kennedy and Grace Kelly.
It was not long before Chanel’s interest spread to cosmetics and perfume. The very first Chanel perfume, the legendary Chanel No. 5, was launched in 1921 and is still one of the best-known and best-selling perfumes of all time. Nowadays, we can easily say that Chanel Chance, Chanel Coco Mademoiselle, Chanel Allure Homme Sport and Chanel Gabrielle are also cult classics.
