The love story between the sensual actress and Chanel does not end there. She plays the role of the free and passionate woman that was Mademoiselle Chanel for the new fragrance Gabrielle Chanel Essence, an ultra-feminine and enveloping scent that incenses the soft floral nuances of Grasse’s tuberose.
