Chanel No.5 L'Eau Shop it: Chanel No.5 L'Eau (available in September 2016, preorder now, $100-$132) History: In 2016, Olivier Polge (as in Jacques's son) revamped No.5 once again into a completely new fragrance, said to be the freshest of the group. After all, "l'eau" means water in French. The bottle is also clear and crisp looking. Scent: Olivier stayed true to the DNA of No.5 — including the May rose, jasmine, and ylang-ylang, while adding in more citrus elements (lemon, mandarin, bergamot, and orange) as well as a completely new note: creamy cedarwood. "A lot of people have an opinion or impression of Chanel No.5, and I would love for them to be surprised," he told us. "You have to smell it and not have a preconceived idea. Maybe your memory of the fragrance is that it's very dressed up. Very structured. [L'Eau is] a more spontaneous scent."
