Last month, I had the absolute pleasure of being invited by Chanel to visit the rose fields in Grasse and learn about how they process their new No. 5 L’eau! It was a true magical experience being able to learn about the inspiration behind the new perfume from perfumer Oliver Polge. It’s definitely a lot more fresh, spontaneous and kinda sexy.
We started the day with a cute introduction then we changed into our gardening accessories like custom CC rain boots, apron, hat, gloves and a little book to take notes. Since May is the month of roses, the fields were fully bloomed and filled with pink roses everywhere. It was the prettiest scenery you can imagine!
We helped pick fresh roses from the garden and later went on to have a little learning session from Chanel’s perfumer. I definitely have a new appreciation for how they make perfumes- it’s such hard work!
