Chanel have introduced their latest perfume in Les Exclusifs collection. As previously mentioned, it is called Jersey. The composition is said to rest upon key notes of lavender, vanilla and white musk and to be evocative of the greenery of the countryside...
At the same time, its intent suggests a coup, a bit à la Jicky by Guerlain - only in reverse and voluntary this time - a lavender which was embraced by men and shunned by women, offered today to be reappropriated by both sexes.
"Jersey, a fabric Coco Chanel prized for its ease and fluidity, freed women from the constraining fashions of their day. This inspired new fragrance, with its elegant marriage of lavender, vanilla and white musk, recaptures that same spirit of liberation."
"As light and liberating as the modern fabric for which it was named — daringly appropriated from menswear by Coco Chanel for women's fashions — JERSEY is the new fragrance masterpiece from Chanel Master Perfumer Jacques Polge. An inspired composition, JERSEY is evocative of a meadow lush with lavender — an essence previously worn only by men. A tender trail of Vanilla and Musk brings femininity to the forefront, and a rare, sophisticated new scent is born."
Prices: $110 and $210.
