Chanel Men by Chanel, Chanel Men (officially labeled Pour Monsieur) is an alluring spicy oriental fragrance with a classic composition that gives it a slightly retro appeal. The opening notes are a fresh aromatic and citrus blend that joins sweet and herbal accords, mingling lavender and lightly woody petitgrain with mandarin orange. Warm spice tones of nutmeg and cardamom emerge as the scent begins to warm on the skin. The final dry down is earthy, woody and exotic, combining creamy vanilla and opoponax with vetiver and oakmoss.
Given the nickname 'Coco' by friends in her youth, Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel founded her now famed couture house in 1910. No.5 was the first fragrance produced by the company. Originally launched in 1921, this now iconic scent remains a best seller worldwide. Fragrance designers who have worked under the label include current in-house perfumer Jacques Polge, Ernest Beaux, Olivier Polge, Henry Robert and Christopher Sheldrake.
