Chanel’s master perfumer, Olivier Polge, has created his second fragrance for the company, called Boy. Boy is the 17th addition to the fashion house Las Exclusifs.
Polge juggled gender by creating a fragrance that is meant to play with both masculine and feminine scents. He took the masculine structure for a fragrance, a fougère, and morphed it into a feminine version. The fougère featured lavender and geranium supported by coumarin and moss, as well as lemon, grapefruit, rose, sandalwood, heliotrope, vanilla and clean musk.
