Inspired by three destinations dear to Gabrielle Chanel, LES EAUX DE CHANEL start a new chapter in the history of CHANEL fragrance. A sensation of freshness. A journey in every spray.

Designed like an invitation to travel, the new bottle for the LES EAUX DE CHANEL collection stems from a desire for simplicity. The three identical LES EAUX DE CHANEL bottles differ only by the names inscribed on the front and the colour of the fragrance. Available at CHANEL and in June 2018.

“More than the actual reality of the destination, I liked the idea urbanites make of it when they dream of a weekend away in the country. I wasn’t striving to capture the Normandy countryside as it stands today, but rather the promise of a stroll through the tall grasses.” – OLIVIER POLGE

  • Paris – Deauville: In 1912, Gabrielle Chanel opened her first boutique in Deauville. Located between the sea and countryside, the green landscape of the city inspired Olivier Polge to create this radiant, woody-aromatic scent with fresh notes of Basil and Citrus. 4.2 oz. Eau de Toilette $130
  • Paris – Venise: Olivier Polge evokes the rich Byzantine and Baroque splendors of Venice — which fueled Gabrielle Chanel’s creativity during her visits — in this luminous, fresh yet sensual fragrance. An Amber accord unfolds with notes of Vanilla and Tonka Bean for a soft, enveloping trail. 4.2 oz. Eau de Toilette $130
  • Paris – Biarritz: Gabrielle Chanel was so captivated by the lively atmosphere of Biarritz that she decided to open her first couture house there in 1915. Olivier Polge pays homage to the strong waves and fresh winds of the dynamic seaside resort town in this crisp, invigorating composition featuring Citrus and Lily-of-the-the-Valley notes. 4.2 oz. Eau de Toilette $130

Saalt Menstrual Cup
Have you heard about menstrual cups yet? It is a reusable soft silicone cup that collects, rather than absorbs your period. There’s a lot about this little cup: good for the Earth, money-saving and globally conscious- the cup should take the place of 3,000 tampons (crazy)! Lasting up to 10 YEARS, the Saalt cup truly allows women to spend less and waste less. Wear your cup up to 12 hours. Made of 100% medical grade silicone, Saalt maintains natural pH, is hypoallergenic, chemical and odor free. No latex. No BPA.

I’ve actually learned about the menstrual cup when I was out at dinner with my gurls. I’m surprised it took me that long to find out about it, I felt like I was living under a rock lol. My friends that used it love it but those like me that haven’t tried it yet are still debating. I think I’m going to give Saalt to a test run the next time I get my period ha!

Retails for $27 for a single cup or $43 for the duo pack, available at and
