    Compound Five is a raw compound of Chanel No 5 by Ernest Beaux in all its original glory! This compound is the first of its kind for Fraterworks. It is the complete original No 5 with no modifications at all except the sympathetic replacement of Tonkin deer musk which is now illegal to buy and sell.

    Because the original perfume contained Musk Ambrette which is prohibited from perfume use, we are offering this as an archival compound only. It must not be used or sold as a perfume and must not be applied to skin.

    We recommend pairing this with our Deluxe Perfumer's Alcohol which contains Solgard® (to minimise the destructive properties of the sun), a 15ml Luxury Glass Bottle and a set of 100 mouillettes so you can display this piece of history in your own home and allow friends and family to enjoy its scent safely through the use of smelling strips. 

    Compound Five contains more than 25% pure jasmine absolute, rare Iris absolute, Ylang-ylang, finest Bourbon vanilla absolute, and many many more naturals and isolates which were cutting edge in 1921 when Mr Beaux crafted this masterpiece.

    The original perfume was sold as a 38% dilution. All you need to fill a 15ml bottle is 5 grams of Compound five blended with with 10 grams of alcohol.

    Experience the most historic fragrance with Compound Five.

    General Information

    Like most suppliers and makers of quality raw materials for fragrances, we do not filter many of our products. This ensures that no odiferous matter is lost prior to use but can result in the appearance of small particles or slight clouding.

    All alcoholic fragrances should be macerated for up to a month and then chilled in a moderate freezer overnight before being filtered fine. This will remove all cloudiness or detritus and is the industry norm.

    IFRA Standards

    Permitted amounts in finished product:

    IFRA 51: Prohibited
    IFRA 49: Prohibited

    These are derived from calculated concentrations which do not replace chromatographic quantification on individual lots. Disclaimer...

    For Trade Use Only

    Our products are intended as building blocks in the perfume creation process; they are not to be applied to the skin undiluted.

    These raw materials are for use by the perfumery trade only.
