Every now and then a fragrance comes along that makes us swoon to no end. This week we had such a fragrance arrive to Brides HQ: Chanel's 1932.
1932 was the year that Mademoiselle Coco Chanel presented her debut designer jewellery collection in defiance of the financial crisis of the time and the rise of 'value-jewellery'.
80 years later, the French fashion house has launched an equally exquisite line of jewels, the Bijoux de Diamants Collection, in honour of Coco's first collection. And to accompany the shimmering diamonds, Jacques Polge, Creator of Chanel Perfumes, has created 1932 - the fragrance.
Rightfully taking its place in Les Exclusifs de Chanel Collection, the Jasmine-based fragrance is everything a bride-to-be could dream of for her big day - and more.
With top notes of pear and grapefruit, the initial smell is crisp and fresh, warming into the classic Chanel fragrance essential: jasmine, adding a sweet twist.
Once it absorbs into the skin, iris, vetiver and musks give it a smooth and lasting finish that holds you as if in a warm embrace. It is nothing short of heavenly.
If you are looking for a special scent to make your big day an ever-lasting memory, 1932 is truly perfect.
Les Exclusifs de Chanel 1932; 75ml from £110; available exclusively in the Covent Garden Pop-Up Store, Chanel Boutiques, House of Fraser Glasgow, Fenwicks Newcastle, Selfridges Manchester Exchange and Selfridges W1 from 1 March 2013
