When couturière, Gabrielle Bonheur “Coco” Chanel founded the luxury French fashion house in 1910, her goal was to revolutionise the way women dressed and smelled. Today, the quintessential Chanel is one of the top-notch luxury brands making the best perfumes in the world; The Chanel Perfume.
Let’s face it, there is an alluring quality that luxury perfumes possess. And no matter how plain or extravagant you’re dressed, you can completely enthral a crowd with just about the right scent. Even though the most expensive luxury perfume brands have the same things in common with their less expensive counterparts – we’re talking glass or plastic bottles, fragrant essential oils, alcohol and water – they distinguish themselves with their rare ingredients and secret formulas.
One of the many things that makes Chanel perfumes distinct from other perfume brands is not just their simplicity or expertness, but the generous quality of their essences. However, the versatility of the fragrances makes Chanel perfumes a rarity. Little wonder they are always limited in stock. Without further ado, let’s take a look at one of the must-have Chanel perfume collections this summer, by popular demand.
