Chanel No. 19 is a balsamic-green scent, compared to the floral No. 22 and ambrette-green No. 18, which was created by Henri Robert in 1971 for Coco Chanal’s birthday on August 19th of that year!
Coco Chanel created her iconic perfume, No. 19, on the day of her birthday in 1971 as a gift to herself and all those who love it dearly. The timeless scent is balsamic-green compared to the other fragrances she has released over time such as: Chanel No. 5 (aldehydic), Chanel No. 22 (floral) or even greenish like that found with 24’s ambrette fragrance; revealing Henri Robert was truly gifted when he made this masterpiece for Coco back at age 89 years old!
The numbers represent one thing – how long ago they were first introduced into society from 1973 up until now in 2017 where we see new scents being released by perfumers year after year without end!
For those who are looking for a different take on fragrance, No. 19 is the scent to try! Coco Chanel was an iconic woman with her own unique sense of style and fashion – so it’s no surprise that she also had a signature perfume. The number nineteen represents this fascinating story behind one of life’s most precious moments: birthdays.
This floral green aroma captures all the femininity around us in soft seductive notes such as jasmine and ylang-ylang before settling down into rich sandalwood base notes which balance out these delicate flowers beautifully; making way for sensual musk at its endnote to make you feel like Marilyn Monroe once again (or Sophia Loren).
