1. Chanel No 5
Coco Chanel created the Chanel No 5 in 1921 in collaboration with Ernest Beaux. Over time, the fragrance has undergone a few tweaks, and the latest version from 1986 features bergamot, neroli, peach, aldehydes, and ylang-ylang as its top notes. The middle notes are formed by rose, jasmine, and lily of the valley. The base notes consist of vanilla, sandalwood, vetiver, oakmoss, and patchouli.
2. Coco Chanel Eau de Parfum
This fragrance from 1984 was created by Jacques Polge. Its top notes feature jasmine, Mandarin orange, Bulgarian rose, peach, and coriander. Rose, cloves, orange blossom, mimosa, and clover are the fragrance’s mid notes. The base consists of sandalwood, amber, opoponax, tonka bean, vanilla, civet, and labdanum.
3. Allure Sensuelle
Jacques Polge takes the credit once again for creating the Allure Sensuelle. This oriental floral fragrance has top notes of mandarin orange, pink pepper, and bergamot. The middle notes are formed by jasmine, rose, dried fruits, iris, and Vetiver. Labdanum, musk, vanilla, patchouli and amber are the base notes.
4. Chance Eau Tendre
The Chance Eau Tendre is also the result of some exceptional work by master perfumer Jacques Polge. The fragrance is known for its intoxicating feel and features quince and grapefruit as its top notes. Its middle notes consist of jasmine and rose, while the base note features white musk. Launched in 2019, this perfume comes in a classic bottle that has a golden accent and a silver cap.

Bleu de Chanel is yet another Jacques Polge-made perfume that’s meant for men. However, its woody aromatic scent has also endeared it to many women. The top notes feature pepper, grapefruit, mint, and lemon. Nutmeg, ginger, and jasmine form the middle notes. The base notes consist of incense, sandalwood, cedar, vetiver, labdanum, patchouli, and white musk. The Bleu de Chanel was introduced in 2010.

7. Gabrielle Chanel
Olivier Polge created the Gabrielle Chanel perfume in 2017, and it’s a homage to none other than Coco Chanel herself. Exotic jasmine and three other white flowers serve as the inspiration for this now-iconic Chanel perfume. There are notes of sparkling orange blossom, ylang-ylang, and grass tuberose as well.
8. Coco Mademoiselle
This 2018 perfume, created by Jacques Polge, features bergamot and Sicilian orange as its top notes. A variety of fruity scents including jasmine and rose form the fragrance’s middle notes. The base notes consist of white musk, labdanum, vanilla, tonka bean, and Madagascar.
