Les Exclusifs de Chanel

A virtuoso collection of 12 rare fragrances created by Chanel Master Perfumers. Released on February 12, 2007, all of the scents are based on original Chanel and reissued creations from the past. Four of them are existing Chanel fragrances, and the others are recreations by Jacques Polge.

All of the scents are in the eau de toilette concentration spray bottles, each is fitted with a fancy magnetic top. Les Exclusifs are available at Chanel boutiques exclusively.

In 2016, the Eau de Toilettes were reformulated into Eau de Parfum concentrations, except for the Chanel Eau de Cologne, which remains the only Eau de Toilette concentration), despite its name.

Gardenia. Sweet and voluptuous, an intense fragrance of absolute femininity. Created by CHANEL Master Perfumer Ernest Beaux in 1925, GARDÉNIA is an olfactive ode to the camellia, Mademoiselle Chanel's favorite flower. A vanilla base rises to meet a heart of sweet fruit and creamy gardenia petals, accented with coconut. Sending the scent aloft: the crisp greens of the flower's morning leaves.

Bois des Iles. An intoxicating, warm, woody Oriental created by CHANEL Master Perfumer Ernest Beaux in 1926. An accord of Sandalwood and Ylang-Ylang spirals in a base of Tonka Bean and Bourbon Vanilla, with heady, enchanting notes of Sicilian Mandarin and Calabrian Bergamot.

Eau de Cologne. A bracingly fresh character sparkles at the heart of the citrus-infused scent created by CHANEL Master Perfumer Jacques Polge in 2007. Inspired by an Eau de Cologne that Mademoiselle herself designed, an interplay of Neroli and Bergamot invigorates and refreshes with just a hint of seduction, atop notes of petit grain, herbs and spices.

31 Rue Cambon. A rich, smooth, elegant floral with a couture character -- inspired by the legendary CHANEL address in Paris -- and created by CHANEL Master Perfumer Jacques Polge in 2007. The warm Chypre accord is set free and made luminous and modern with inviting notes of Bergamot, Patchouli and Cistus oil.

28 La Pausa. A piquant floral fragrance of delicate Iris, rooted in the Tuscan soil of the French Riviera, where Mademoiselle escaped with friends to her vacation home. Created by CHANEL Master Perfumer Jacques Polge in 2007, it is a scent full of contrasts -- radiant yet delicate, simple yet luxurious, earthy yet powdery -- with a tranquil, soothing character.

Bel Respiro. A delicate floral evocation of early spring, with its first grass shoots, crushed leaves and idyllic breeze -- inspired by Mademoiselle Chanel's weekend getaway in Garches. Created by CHANEL Master Perfumer Jacques Polge in 2007, notes of tender new greens are nuanced and warmed with fresh leather and aromatic accents that invigorate and refresh.

No. 18. A radiant floral fragrance as precious as Fine Jewelry, created by CHANEL Master Perfumer Jacques Polge in 2007. Rare Ambrette -- with its gem-like flowers -- is the centerpiece of a stunning bouquet, with fruity, sweet-smooth notes among its faceted trail.

Sycomore. A rich-wood fragrance with a noble character -- like the Sycomore tree that inspired it -- created by CHANEL Master Perfumer Jacques Polge in 2008. At the heart of the scent: Vetiver, with an elegant Sandalwood note and dashes of Cypress, Juniper and Pink Pepper, for an earthy, warm and enveloping, yet subtle presence.

Beige. An intense powdery floral of natural elegance and grace -- eponymous for Mademoiselle Chanel's favorite colour. Created by CHANEL Master Perfumer Jacques Polge in 2008, a blend of new white petals and yellow gold flowers are highlighted by hints of honey that reveal its discreet sensuality.

Cuir de Russie. A rich, woody Oriental enhanced with leather notes for an enveloping, warm, sensual presence, created by CHANEL Master Perfumer Ernest Beaux in 1925. Constructed on a base of Albanian Birchwood, its pure heart of Jasmine, Oriental Rose and Ylang-Ylang peaks in a mélange of mingling notes -- Tunisian Orange Blossom, Calabrian Bergamot and Sicilian Mandarin.

No. 22. A powdery bloom of rich flowers with an accord of sweet, refined and ultra-feminine tuberose, created by CHANEL Master Perfumer Ernest Beaux in 1925. A delicate heart of Oriental Jasmine, Rose and Ylang-Ylang from the Comoro Islands is deepened by base notes of Haitian Vetiver and Bourbon Vanilla. Top notes -- Lily of the Valley, Neroli and aldehydes -- bring a brilliant clarity and sensuous wake.

Jersey. 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.

1932. Named to commemorate the year of Gabrielle Chanel’s first High Jewelry collection, “Bijoux de Diamants.” 1932 evokes a dazzling array of diamond stars and comets. Created petal by petal, the soft,woody fragrance expresses an enveloping heart of White Jasmine.

Fresh Body Cream. Subtly scented to flatter any fragrance in the LES EXCLUSIFS Collection, this exquisitely soft, light cream envelops the skin with pure luxury. The sumptuous cream is perfect for layering, for the ultimate LES EXCLUSIFS experience. Presented in a beautiful coffret.
