Boy – new parfume from Chanel
The new fragrance “Boy” – a fragrance, that has the main notes of lavender and rose geranium. It also includes grapefruit and lemon, rose, orange blossom, sandalwood and heliotropine. Notes of vanilla and musk were added .
Perfumer Olivier Polzh (fragrance creator for the House of Chanel) says about his creation: “My task was to try not to make unisex composition, and really something masculine … and to show women how comfortable it is to wear. I spend a parallel between the woman, who had put on the shirt of her men, making her more feminine. So I made no attempt to establish the average (neuter) flavor, but sought his ostentatious masculinity. And, as with many other things in this life, gender thing is determined to the person, who wears it. “
The instigator of the perfume has been one of the closest friends of Chanel – Captain Arthur Edward Capel Boy (their affair lasted for twelve years), in whose honor and named the fragrance.
