In 1920, Gabrielle Chanel visited Venice. Mourning the loss of Boy Capel in a car accident the previous year, she found the cultural distractions of Venice both inspirational and restorative. Paris-Venise is inspired by the journey via the Orient Express between these two cities. Polge’s intention was to evoke the olfactory journey of arriving at ‘that gateway to the Orient’.
