Coromandel, when the nobility of Asia is invited in an Exclusive Chanel fragrance
The Chanel house has a very rich history and know-how resulting from several decades of creation. Thus, to put its most famous perfumes back in the spotlight, Chanel has decided to create the Collection des Exclusifs, bringing together high quality fragrances, a pledge of prestige and nobility. This time, Chanel even decided to step up one of the fragrances in her collection and give it a more oriental and woody splendor. Coromandel by Chanel intoxicates us with its new, darker and more intense scent.
The Chanel Exclusives Collection
Coromandel is a perfume that comes from one of the most beautiful collections of the house of Chanel. The latter has only one condition: to make women unforgettable thanks to inimitable perfumes. The Chanel Exclusives Collection surprises with its elegance, power and its share of mystery. Each of the juices that compose it emanates from an extraordinary know-how as well as noble and rare ingredients. The Exclusives of Chanel are timeless essences, from yesterday and today, capable of provoking wonder from their first breath. With these perfumes, everything is luxury and perfection, without lacking in daring. It is therefore precisely all this that we find in the Coromandel perfume.
The new darker scent of Coromandel
In fact, the first version of Coromandel from the Chanel Exclusives Collection was created in 2007. This time, in 2019, it is a reinterpretation of its scent. For the occasion, Chanel gives us a more intense and dark breath of this cult essence. Coromandel by Chanel has been revisited by the talented Olivier Polge, the brand’s exclusive perfumer. Here, he amplified his warmth and oriental breath by the more amber presence of incense and labdanum. Benzoin, meanwhile, gives it a more resinous scent. Smoked accents now give it a more noble and enchanting quality. To brighten it all up, orange blossom and neroli combine here with citrus fruits. The rose and the iris root, in turn, underline her femininity.
An evocation of Chinese craftsmanship
But, do you know what the name of this perfume really evokes? In fact, it is a tribute to Coromandel screens, which Coco Chanel discovered when she was only 20 years old. She literally fell under the spell of these finely carved and painted screens, covered with a dark lacquer. Just like these collectibles, the Coromandel perfume by Chanel takes us to the heart of China and makes us discover a part of Asian art. Like the diligent and relentless artisans who once worked on these screens, Chanel’s Coromandel perfume is a concentrate of refinement, luxury and perfection. It results from an “infinite patience of the craftsman and of the flawless hand of the master”.
