We were so busy waiting for Chanel’s reinterpretation of their No. 5 fragrance titled L’Eau (slated for a fall release) that we didn’t see this one coming at all! Called Boy, the new scent from Chanel is a unisex fragrance created by the house’s master perfumer Olivier Polge. It also becomes the latest addition to the Les Exclusifs collection and is supposedly inspired by Arthur “Boy” Capel an English Polo player who was one of Coco Chanel’s lovers.
“My way of working on this fragrance was really not to try to make a unisex fragrance but really more to dive into men’s fragrance…and to show how well it could be worn by a woman,” said Polge, “So it was not to try to create an in-between fragrance, but a very masculine fragrance. And — like many other things in life — gender is given by the person wearing it.”
THE Fougere fragrance includes notes of lavender, rose, lemon, grapefruit, rose geranium, orange blossom, sandalwood, heliotrope, vanilla and musk. It is contained in a simple rectangular bottle, like others in the Les Exclusifs collection and will become available worldwide this month in 75 and 200 ml Eau de Toilette forms.
