Chanel’s Jasmine harvest in Grasse… (in pictures and mercifully few words)

 

 

 

 

Chanel grows its own Jasmine in Grasse for No5….

The farm is owned and run by the fabulous Joseph Mul (above) and his family and harvested by a loyal team of pickers…

 

 

 

 

When at Chanel’s Jasmine harvest naturally one wears.. Chanel wellies…

 

pickers at the weigh in–Jasmine flowers overnight and can only be picked during the morning..

 

 

 

 

the flowers are loaded into trays and  the pickers load their baskets into the back of their van and head for their lunch…meanwhile the harvest heads for the processing plant…

 

 

 

 

where it goes through multifarious processes…. which ultimately create an absolute- the liquid used in the No5 fragrance formula…  Other highlights of the day included… the Chanel PRs who naturally.. wore great accessories…

and the Tuberose (which I had never seen growing in fields before). Chanel also grows its own roses for No5 at the Mul’s farm….
