Chanel is due to launch Coco Noir, a perfume celebrating travel and feminity and conjuring up the magic of a night in Venice, a city dear to designer Gabrielle Chanel. The new fragrance was developed by Jacques Polge, who was inspired by Coco (1984) and Coco Mademoiselle (2001).
Coco Noir features top notes of grapefruit and bergamot, middle notes of rose, jasmine, narcissus and geranium leaves, and base notes of tonka beans from Brazil and Venezuela, patchouli from Indonesia, sandalwood, vanilla and incense.
Chanel has not yet announced who will be the face of this new mysterious fragrance. Coco Noir will be available August 17, retailing for €92 (50 ml bottle) and €132 (100 ml bottle).
