In contact with water, the bath soap develops a light, creamy lather that leaves the skin soft, supple and delicately scented. A peaceful moment steeped in the magic of N°5.
In 1921, Gabrielle Chanel asked Ernest Beaux to create "a woman's perfume with a woman's scent", intense and original. The nose presented her with a visionary composition that made unprecedented use of aldehydes. Mademoiselle chose the fifth sample of the fragrance, and decided to name it simply N°5. The innovative scent of the fragrance, along with the rare simplicity of its name and bottle, revolutionised the history of perfumery.
Inspired by the smooth harmony of Rose and Jasmine that composes N°5, the bath soap was formulated as a sensual continuation of the N°5 floral bouquet.
