Note: Please understand that this website is not affiliated with the Chanel company in any way, it is only a reference page for collectors and those who have enjoyed the Chanel fragrances.

The goal of this website is to show the present owners of the Chanel company how much we miss the discontinued classics and hopefully, if they see that there is enough interest and demand, they will bring back the perfume!

Please leave a comment below (for example: of why you liked the perfume, describe the scent, time period or age you wore it, who gave it to you or what occasion, any specific memories), who knows, perhaps someone from the company might see it.

Une Idée de Chanel c1929

Une Idée de Chanel: launched in 1929.

Fragrance Composition:

So what does it smell like? It was described as "spicy and racy, and "very sweet, flowery and feminine."

Harper's Bazaar, 1930:
"When Madame Chanel presents a new perfume it is indeed an event. Here are two brand-new fragrances, each encased in a smart modern bottle. At the left, "Sycomore" ; at the right, "Un Idee de Chanel."

Fate of the Fragrance:

Discontinued, date unknown. Still being sold in 1960.
