With next season being all about nouveau baroque, embellishment and gilt accents, it was only natural that Karl Lagerfeld would match the likes of Dolce & Gabbana and raise them a perfume.
Coco Noir, officially debuts at Selfridges tomorrow and is set to be as iconic as the House’s No.5 and Coco Mademoiselle.
Safe in the knowledge that black never goes out of fashion, and in tribute to the brand’s namesake Coco, who once declared that “black has it all” and lest we forget created the LBD, it’s surprising that Noir didn’t come sooner.
Sleeker than its sisters, the opaque black bottle is the epitome of luxury and everything Chanel stood for. Created by Jacques Polge, Noir comprises grapefruit, Calabrian bergamot, Jasmine and narcissus.
Perfumer Christopher Sheldrake told WWD that each Chanel fragrance represents an era, and it is perhaps a testament to us that Noir will epitomise ours.
