Chanel will launch Misia, the latest addition to the Les Exclusifs collection. The fragrance was named for Misia Sert, a friend of Coco Chanel, and is the first Chanel release from house perfumer Olivier Polge.
My intention for this fragrance wasn’t so much to recapture Misia herself, but her role as a turning point in the life of Gabrielle Chanel. Misia introduced Gabrielle to a number of new things. With this fragrance, I wanted to convey the atmosphere of the Ballets Russes [of which Misia was a patron] and the smell of makeup from that time. — Olivier Polge
The notes feature violet, Grasse and Turkish rose, orris, tonka bean and benzoin.
Chanel Misia will debut in March, and will be available in 75 and 200 ml Eau de Toilette.
