What is your favourite Chanel perfume? We asked a roster of Canadian beauty editors. Here’s what they said.
To mark the upcoming birthday of the style iconoclast and perfume revolutionary, Gabrielle Chanel, we reached out to a roster of this country’s top editors and asked them to tell us about their favourite Chanel perfume.
Today, we’re hearing from Catherine Franklin, Fashion & Beauty Director from Chatelaine.

“I enjoy it most in the wintertime, wearing it is like covering yourself in soft, warm cashmere.”
