Chanel N°5 Eau Premiere

I'm a little behind with releases, but on 5th May (although still wasn't in Brown Thomas yesterday), Chanel launched a new take on its N°5 Eau Premiere perfume, a "new approach to the N°5 experience", formulated back in 2008, and now, in 2014, adopting the legendary N°5 iconic all-glass bottle.

For those of you who like a little bit of insider information, the shape of this bottle was actually inspired by the shape of Place Vendôme in Paris, and is topped with a cabochon cut like a diamond.  The bottle also now features a spray dispenser.

What's different?  My research suggests that although the newer version, N°5 Eau Premiere, contains most of the accords of the "standard" N°5 (rose absolute, jasmine, neroli, ylang-ylang, amber, vetiver and sandalwood), it is a little lighter and fresher than the older version, a little rosier, with a little less ylang-ylang, and a bit more vanilla and musk in the base notes.  It seems to be more of a creamy floral-vanilla scent than a heavier powdery one.

The new Eau Première non-refillable spray bottle is available in two sizes: 50 ml (€85.50) and 100 ml (€121).  Look here for more information.
