Hi Everybody,

In April, the perfume society organized an event in New Bond Street for the new Chanel Le Exclusifs perfume, Misia. This is the first fragrance from Olivier Polge since he took over from his father Jacques as the in house perfumer for Chanel.

The perfume is named after Misia Sert, a close friend of Coco Chanel who introduced to her to art, music and theatre and was an influence to Coco in her life.

The perfume is an extraordinary perfume from the everyday ones we use. Notes of Iris root, Turkish rose,  Grasse rose, violet, tonka bean, benzoin and sandalwood. It reminds me of my aunts’s lipsticks when I was a child. When I was small, I sneaked and had a look at her cosmetic bag and the smell of this perfume takes me back to then. The first impression is of the 1920s and the heavy scent of roses and  compact powder, it feels old-fashioned but with a modern touch. The dry down is a floral and woodier scent perfect for the evenings.

It is a grown up perfume, sophisticated and feminine for the modern woman. I like it and it’s like nothing else.
