Chanel Gabrielle and La Creme Main: Fresh Launches Destined to Become Modern Classics

Fresh launches from Chanel. 
As a beauty writer, I am hard-wired to pursue the “next big thing.” New launches will forever intrigue me and being able to refresh my routine with something novel is its own kind of joy. That being said, I deeply appreciate the types of skincare, fragrance and beauty releases that possess a sense of timelessness; such is the case for Chanel’s most recent innovations. 
*Chanel Gabrielle and *Chanel La Creme Main
Resplendent on every level, *Chanel Gabrielle and *Chanel La Creme Main eschew trends in favor of classic appeal, effortlessly blending into one’s daily rituals while simultaneously reflecting a modern dimension aligned with the times. 

Kindly scroll on for more details and images as well as the Bottom Line…

Chanel Gabrielle
Bursting with a crystalline brightness and a lush and sensual dry down, *Chanel Gabrielle is inspired by Coco herself; the fragrance is equal parts independent and alluring, reflecting a free spirit while drawing others in. The melange of fruit, flowers and musk works harmoniously to establish a complex–yet infinitely pleasing–scent that seamlessly transitions from day to night. 

Richly beguiling yet not taking itself too seriously, I’ll be reaching for this frequently as the temperatures continue to drop!

Before creating the House of Chanel, Coco was Gabrielle. A rebel at heart…passionate and free. The inspiration behind the luminous floral fragrance: GABRIELLE CHANEL.
Olivier Polge crafted this Eau de Parfum as an imaginary flower — a radiant and sparkling, purely feminine Chanel blossom based on a bouquet of four white flowers: a rich, enveloping heart of exotic Jasmine shimmers with the fruity green notes of Ylang-Ylang, while fresh and sparkling Orange Blossom shines through, offering a glimpse of Grasse Tuberose captured at its finest. Four points of light that recall the four corners of the bottle.
Apply GABRIELLE CHANEL fragrance on skin or clothing with a deliberate and generous spray.
The fragrance appears to be suspended weightlessly within the striking, square bottle crafted of ultra-thin glass, as the four transparent sides fade into the background to let the light shine through. The label and the stopper have the same shape and indefinable lamé colour, a delicate balance between gold and silver, and the interior is warmed with an even more resplendent gold. Nestled in an imprint of its silhouette, the bottle is carefully protected by a precious interior sleeve.

Chanel La Creme Main
A work of art in its own right, *Chanel La Creme Main is a fascinating fusion of form and function. Housed in an alabaster oval, the opulent formula imparts major moisture to oft-parched hands and nails while feeing weightless and absorbing instantly for maximum efficacy. The muted fragrance is light enough to satisfy those in the sensitive olfactory (like me!) and its stunning, purse-friendly packaging makes caring for one’s hands a simple and chic task. 
As the holidays approach, I have a feeling I’ll be purchasing the vibrantly versatile *La Creme Main for all the beauty lovers in my life as it looks (and feels) good on absolutely everyone.
