Chanel No.19 Eau de Parfum Lands Stateside

The elusive concentration of the venerable Chanel No.19 perfume, the Eau de Parfum, had been widely available in Europe for years now, but for some unfathomable reason escaped regular Chanel perfume counters in the US. The Eau de Parfum is a different animal than the Eau de Toilette and parfum versions, displaying a distinct rosiness which pairs with the vetiver in a novel way and has a smoother leather note. Now our American friends can stock up, as the Eau de Parfum of No.19 and some body products in the range (bath gel and deodorant) arrive at the online venue of Chanel, their official site on this link. Alongside some masculine Antaeus ancillary products, a No.5 Eau Premiere coffret and some makeup products.

Careful though: the No.19 Eau de Parfum is marked as a limited edition! (Which probably means you won't get a second chance anytime soon)
Complimentary standard shipping through midnight December 16th EST applies on the official site.

Read our review of Chanel No.19 and of Chanel Antaeus on these links. And watch some retro commercials of Chanel No.19 below.

  1. One of my all-time favorite scents. Just this past spring I stumbled upon a mid-80s bottle of the EdT in my mom's guest-bath. It, along with a No. 22 bottle from the same era, was as fresh as if it'd been bottled the day before. All that classy, sharp greenery -- heaven. I'll bet the EdP is even more sensational. But that an EdT has kept so well -- 25 years! -- is testimony to Chanel's pledge to quality. (And my mom's light-proof bathroom cabinets!)
    All the best,
    Michael

    PS: Would love to hear what you may have to say about the three "classy men's scents" I've just featured at me own blog...

  2. Michael,

    what a beautiful story you shared with us here! I love when people unearth precious fragrances in less remembered cabinets and then all of a sudden...voila! Memories come tumbling down...
    Indeed Chanel fragrances keep well for the most part, which is part of their charm. I love the EDT and parfum in No.19 most (more chypre-like, more powdery-vetiver-rich, cooler), but the rosiness and relative warmth of the EDP is something which has many enthralled and it's fortunate that Chanel thought of offering it to US customers even if it's only for a limited amount of time (I say grab!)

    Hoping over to comment, classy choices indeed and I love all three of them. If you like the men's OJ I suggest you also try the women's version OJ Woman, it's exquisite. Also, have you tried Fille en Aiguilles and the latest L'Artisan especially for Aedes de Venustas? (I mean the perfume, not the home spray) I think you might like them.

  4. Elena, did you saw the rumours that Chanel N19 would be the next to go in the eau premiere series?
