The haughty scent, Chanel No 19 is being reinvented with iris as its base and introduced for a whole new generation. Word from Chanel's fragrance and beauty headquarters in Neuilly, France, believed that perhaps packaging was the problem in relating to sales and promotion.
The fragrance was removed from the marketplace, much to the dismay of celebrities such as Matilda May, Catherine Deneuve and thousands of consumers who adored it. Chanel feels that since the packaging was exactly the same as Chanel No 5´s, this confused the consumer when making a purchase.
The new interpretation of this inspirational scent goes on sale soon, hopefully without being overshadowed by No 5, since its packaging will be unique. It is now named No 19 Poudré and is designed to draw attention itself. Chanel No 5 perfume still remains one of the hottest sellers in the perfume industry.
The original No 19 fragrance was created by Henri Robert in 1971 exclusively for Coco Chanel. She was in her eighties at the time and the number was chosen based on her birth date, August 19th.
The Chanel Corporation has planted its own iris fields in Grasse on the French Riviera, alongside those filled with rose and jasmine, and reserved for all of their perfumes.
Owning a Chanel designer bag is just as elegant as the “new” No 19 Poudré is destined to be. Just in time, reinvent a look, as the authentic Chanel Jumbo Beige Flap fits right in for summer days through evenings. Rachel Zoe, Dakota Fanning, and Selma Blair are huge fans to the oversize make-a-statement Chanel.
As iconic as ever, the pre-owned jumbo flap is crafted in scrumptious beige quilted lambskin leather and has all the features in a classic Chanel such as the open pocket on its backside.
This traditional style from Chanel features an elegant, adjustable-length chain and interwoven leather strap which can be worn as a single or double shoulder strap.
A gold tone turn-lock closure in the infamous “CC” opens the front flap of this jumbo.
The spacious interior is lined in smooth lambskin leather. The used Chanel Jumbo can hold more than imaginable and even contains a full length flat open pocket ideal for storing important documents.
Besides Chanel No 19 Poudré or No 5 perfumes, there is always Coco, Coco Mademoiselle, Allure, Chance and the Les Exclusifs series to indulge in. Anything by Chanel is a winner and a Chanel perfume and the authentic Chanel Jumbo Beige Flap are the ones every woman craves for.
