Straightforwardness, elegance, natural freedom of movement
In 1913 Coco Chanel opened a hat and accessory boutique. For a long time she had noticed that the women even walked on the beach with hats and laced up in a corset, just as if they were in the city. For herself and her girlfriends, Chanel created a fashion that was sporty by the standards of the time, which surprised some people with its view of the streets. Chanel had hit the nerve of time. Her fashion with its own simple, natural elegance is in demand in the highest circles. You admired, asked, and bought.

What counts for Chanel are straightforwardness, comfort, natural freedom of movement - and at the same time the desire to seduce, so it says in some texts about Chanel. This made her a trendsetter: at a time when you only saw her foot shine through, her skirts let her ankle free. She has her hair cut off, deliberately exposes her face to the sun and wears trousers - revolutionary to scandalous for the time. Neither corset nor fish bone restrict the body in their fashion. And when fabrics became scarce shortly before World War I, legend has it that she buys up a stock of jersey. A stretchy knitted fabric (first produced on the island of the same name in the English Channel) which until then had been reserved exclusively for the production of male underwear. At Chanel it was used for the first time in outerwear. She made virtue out of necessity and people applauded.

And why am I writing all this? Because Jersey seems so fitting as a name for this perfume. He's everything Chanel embodied in her fashion. For me the epitome of natural, simple elegance. In fragrance notes spoken: an aromatic, finely spicy and powdery fragrance. On the Chanel website something is written about "he loses his burschikosität by a hint of vanilla". Burschikos I found Jersey as an eau de toilette with a herbaceous top note. Once these had been overcome, a bright, finely spiced, elegant fragrance became broad - long-lasting. And I know what I'm writing about. I broke an almost full 75 ml bottle. Not a drop could be saved. The bottle lay cleanly broken in two halves on the wooden floor. But the towel with which I mopped up the contents scented our apartment for months. Until my husband accidentally (or not accidentally) put the towel with all the other towels in the washing machine. After all, even if only once, the entire contents of the laundry drum smelled of Jersey.

Shortly thereafter the Eau de Parfum variant appeared. It seems to me that the initial tart herbaceous note of the eau de toilette has been shortened and the fragrance quickly lends this subtle, elegant aura, which I liked so much about the eau de toilette. I wear Jersey a lot. In all seasons. Also now at a good 30C and already so many days in a row that I think in the evening: "tomorrow but still another scent"..the thought is discarded as soon as I get a fine jersey breath in my nose the next morning. Just passing by yesterday's clothes is enough and I'm all over again. I am honestly amazed at the durability and Sillage. By perfume standards, I guess I'm what they call a little sprayer. Not more than 3-4 sprayers. And yet the next day I can still perceive the scent as I pass by yesterday's clothes.

Jersey's not a diva. Where some perfumes resemble a loud statement, jersey is more of an understatement - reserved and elegant. But by no means inconspicuous

Peculiar lavender-tonka opening shot, dragged into blandness by Chanel's standard sauce.
