Take a trip to Chanel’s pop-up florist

Published

Blooms and perfumery are inextricably linked – and no more so than this weekend when Chanel’s shop in London’s Covent Garden becomes a florist.

So if you buy a scent, you’ll also get a beautiful bouquet to match. Très chic, très clever. To mark the opening, Joanna Norman, Chanel’s fragrance expert, explains the floral traditions behind the iconic perfumes.

N°5

“At the heart of Chanel Nº5 is May rose (which only blooms in May) and jasmine. Small white flowers such as jasmine create an intense fragrance.”

£95 for 100ml

Coco Mademoiselle

“The note that sets this apart from other Chanel fragrances is patchouli. It creates a deep earthy touch and it works particularly well with rose.”

£95 for 100ml

Coco Noir

“What makes this perfume so special is the spring freshness of narcissus which adds a luminous glint to the scent.”

£106 for 100ml
