Jersey by Chanel or the art of enhancing everyday scents
From this small revolution in masculine-feminine style, Jacques Polge has retained all the audacity and in 2011 offered a fragrance tribute to the creativity of the great lady under the unusual name of Jersey. Playing with codes and styles, Jersey innovates and offers its lavender scents in a bath of refinement and absolute femininity.
The Jersey perfume and its vibrant tribute to the audacity of Coco Chanel by Jacques Polge
< p> Gabrielle Chanel was a great precursor in terms of fashions and styles, one of her most brilliant innovations was to borrow the traditional jersey of men of the sea and male underwear to compose feminine suits that wonderfully redraw the curves. of the woman. A great daring for the fashion of the 20s, which practically never mixed the masculine and the feminine.
It is to pay tribute to this innovation from Coco that Jacques Polge, appointed perfumer of the house of Chanel since 1985 , chose to create Jersey in 2011 in the Les Exclusifs de Chanel collection. Much like the beloved founder of the house of Chanel, the perfumer will have fun breaking genres and mixing the masculine with the feminine using a powerful and classic lavender note of men’s perfumery.
Inspired by the astonishing composition of one of his most brilliant ancestors, Pour Un Homme de Caron, Jacques Polge is going to transform the so “masculine” lavender for Jersey into an elixir of femininity and of sweet and delicious sweetness. Just like Coco knew how to make so sexy the jersey which until now was so manly.
When lavender becomes femme fatale, it becomes Jersey de Chanel
Jersey was born out of a desire to pay tribute to the fabulous audacity of Gabrielle Chanel’s creations. But Jersey was also born from an encounter, that of Jacques Polge with a farmer from Languedoc who gave birth to a lavender much softer and silky than usual. The magazine Flair Flair tells us as well as: “While I was interviewing Jacques Polge, a little over a year ago, he revealed to me that it was his meeting with the supplier of a” formidable lavender “- and very expensive – which had inspired him with the idea of Jersey. “.
Jersey will therefore open up with the notes of this so precious lavender while sending us into the aromatic and dynamic heights of a clary sage. At the heart, Jersey continues its journey in pure freshness with a powerful hedione. But this wave of intense freshness will quickly be reversed by a powdery note of the delicate iris which thus offers lavender a gift of absolute femininity. The delicacies of vanilla and tonka bean combined with a cloud of white musks comfort us in Jersey as in a halo of floral and powdery notes of surprising delicacy.
“JERSEY, a powdery floral aromatic, offering a soft and refined lavender of rare quality. Coated with white musks, enhanced with a touch of vanilla, it loses its boyish airs and is floral. »Chanel for Jersey, Les Exclusifs.
