"The Perfume Isles"

Knowing how to define yourself is the first step to becoming who you want to be.

We are delighted to welcome African beauty change makers.

Some call Comoros the "Perfumes Isles" because the country is the world's top producer of the essential oil extracted from the Ylang-ylang flower, a key ingredient of many perfumes.  

Christophe Sheldrake, Chanel's director for perfume research and development, said: "If I had to describe the smell, it's jasmine, but more heightened, and stronger. It's almost fruity. You get a whiff of pear and coconut to start with, accompanied all the while by a floral scent. As the fragrance settles, there's a hint of carnation, a hint of clove."
